This year the kickoff to wedding season could not have been more exciting when American actress Meghan Markle wed Great Britain’s Prince Harry at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.

Also in the spotlight were the close family and friends of the couple, who dressed elegantly in designer dresses, shoes, and of course, hats. Following on the heels of this exciting moment, we consider how to dress well as a bride or a wedding guest even without royal connections.

5 Tips to Be on Point with Pins

With historical dramas more popular than ever in movies, television and online, pins and brooches have made a fashion comeback. 

If you follow these types of shows, you've probably noticed stunning pins and brooches, particularly those set in the early and mid 1900s. From The Crown (a British drama about the reign of Queen Elizabeth) to The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (which focuses on a Jewish housewife in NYC in the 1950s and her unusual gift for comedy), brooches and pins are prominently displayed and given beautiful historical context by the show’s producers.

Usually when I snuggle up on a wintery January night to watch the Golden Globes, I expect plunging necklines, colorful dresses, sky-high heels and jewels galore. But this year when it was announced that presenters and guests would all be wearing all black, I braced myself. Not against the cold, but rather in anticipation of a dark night of stunning actresses lost in a sea of midnight, ebony, and ink.

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.

2018 is off to a great start here at Dressing Well. Our stylist team is busy helping our private clientele navigate January sales racks while also providing closet sessions that combat cabin fever and tidy up indoor spaces that are hard to turn your back on this time of year.

A professional portrait—referred to in the business world as a "headshot"—serves a multitude of purposes. It instantly conveys what you and your company are all about and can help you acquire (and keep!) target customers, all while supporting a strong online and offline presence.

The term “shoulder season” is most used by travelers and golfers. It marks the time between peak and off-peak seasons, especially spring and fall. When I heard Kathy Smith on our stylist team use the term with clients looking to transition their wardrobes for early fall, I quickly adopted it as a firm concept. It works!

In this month's blog, we share 5 easy ways to freshen your summer style without breaking the bank. Enjoy!
