During the winter months, it takes a variety of coats to get you out the door feeling stylish and pulled together while protecting yourself from the elements. At this point in the season, you know which ones you love (and which ones you are missing!)

In this week’s blog, we share a sample of the coat checklist we use with our private clients to help them part with coats that are no longer serving them while priming them to take good advantage of coat sales that are raging right now.

2016 is off to a great start here at Dressing Well. Our consultants are busy helping their clients look their personal best and our first blog post for 2016 aims to help you start the New Year with some fresh style too. Enjoy!

Recently, I had the privilege to present one of our signature workshops, “Your Visual Resume,” to a group of students at a local women’s college. The students were fantastic and eager for advice on how to navigate the tricky wardrobe transition from classroom to office.

Now that that the caps and gowns have been put away and the focus for many college grads in our midst is on job hunting, I thought I’d share the top five tips from my presentation that resonated the most with this group of students. Feel free to use them as a refresher course for yourself and/or share them with young women that you think would benefit from this super simple (and cost-effective!) guidance.

Like most New Englanders, I have just about had it with the day-to-day nuisances caused by so much snow here this winter. However, I must say that one of the up sides of this weather for me and my family is the extended ski season we now have. One of my favorite things to do is to pack our family up and head to the slopes. We are all outdoor enthusiasts and, as a stylist, I keenly understand the ease of our trip preparation when our ski clothes are organized and ready to go. Parka? Check. Ski pants? Check. Goggles? Check. Snow boots? Check. Checklists are great.

Yet, when you go on a ski vacation that lasts longer than a day or two, packing can get tricky, especially when you want to dress well for the après ski scene, which is often as memorable an experience as skiing itself. Whether you’re hitting the local slopes with friends and family or heading out west or internationally for March break, there is an après ski wardrobe that will fit your budget, taste and personality.
