How to shop and dress like a Pro #11: Green for Spring

Spring is about colors. Don’t mean to post green again but green is in for spring. I match the green cardigan with a simple black dress. With this matching, the green stands out and remains the focus. Of course, there are many ways you could dress up for colors such as dress, skirt, shirt, blouse, scarf, shoes, handbag and accessories.

How to shop and dress like a Pro #10: New Outfits With Green Cardigan

Recently picked up two dresses and a green cardigan from Banana Republic’s final sale items. Great price and love the combinations! What do you think?
 


How to shop and dress like a Pro #9: Peplum Sweater With Dot Pants

The other day in the mall, I couldn’t help staring at Kate Hudson’s pose for Ann Taylor’s poster where she is wearing a black peplum hem sweater with jacquard mini shirt. I was very tempted to get the peplum hem sweater….and finally I got it. I paired it with slim chopped dot pants from Gap. When I shop to keep up with trends, I try not to go too far.  My feeling, peplum would not last long; therefore one is enough to keep up with the seasonal trend.  
 
This was my first time trying the take pictures including face :). It was way harder than I thought.

How to shop and dress like a Pro #8: Work Week Outfits



Mixing and wearing different colors gives fresh look each day. I am not surprised that skinny jean with high boot is still favorite for this season. The combination is perfect for casual Friday. Add a blazer to give a slightly formal look.  If you do not own a blazer yet…start with black. It can go with anything –work or casual outfits.  My advice, before you buy an outfit, imagine what you can wear with? And if this fashion would last. You don’t want to end up with a wardrobe full of clothes that you could only wear once.

How to shop and dress like a Pro #7: Work Week Outfits



Here comes another week, it is time for my week 3 “work week outfits” posting. I am repeating the same outfits but with different match and contrast to demonstrate that oftentimes you could use the same piece for various combinations. I hope this will help you reorganize your wardrobe, and start making use of the pieces, which either forgot about or couldn’t think that they will go. As always, I would love to hear your feedback and ideas.

How to shop and dress like a Pro #5: Denim



 

Denim is a forever trend! 2-piece denim combination is back. Who does not own a pair of jeans? How about denim jacket or shirt?  I will be fine with the combination of denim shirt and jeans with contrasting colors. But, I don’t think I am quite ready for denim jacket with denim pants. Is this 80’s? This is just my personal preference. I tried to put two pieces together and I don’t think the combination is that appealing. 

So, if you ask me, would I wear this combination? My answer is “no” for now. See below two pictures and you be the judge – what combination you like the best? 
Denim Jacket
If you are looking for denim jacket…go to Gap. I bought mine many years ago and still wear it all the time in fall and spring. I wear it with almost everything except denim pants!
