5 Ways to Wear Short Pants in Cold Weather

Not too long ago, short pants were a seasonal wardrobe choice worn mostly in warm weather. Today, they are literally "cropping" up in all seasons giving the trend a much wider range of style interpretations for both men and women. They can be preppy and very casual when worn with sneakers and other flat footwear and quite fashion-forward and sophisticated when dressed up with heels and a variety of hosiery.

For many of our clients, vests are only thought of for very casual activities and are often regulated to the back of coat closet where they rarely see the light of day after fall yard work is said and done. Yet rethinking how vests can add a layer of warmth and style in the winter months is a great way to add a unique touch to your wardrobe for work and play.

The Power of Red. No other color is charged with as much energy, power and, on days like today, fun and passion!

In honor of Valentine’s Day, we share five fun ideas about how to use red to punch up your day-to-day style.

My years as a former accessory buyer for Talbots came home to roost recently when I was working with a new Dressing Well client.

My client confessed she had only two accessories in her wardrobe that she felt comfortable wearing–a pearl necklace and matching pearl earrings that had been given to her on her wedding day. The set meant a great deal to her, had become her go-to and was actually perfect in terms of scale for her petite frame. Yet, she was limiting her overall style by only wearing this one type of jewelry.
