Sheer into winter

Don't stash your sheer blouses in the winter; just top them with a warm biker jacket to cut their sweetness.

The Ultimate Fashion Experience to benefit at-risk youth is tomorrow, and today I drew inspiration from a gorgeous sheer dress from the 2012 Army Collection of one of the designers featured in the show, Antonella Bella.

Since we are having an (albeit rare) cold spell right now, I decided to forgo the dress and instead chose this soft-colored, billowy sheer floral blouse. Because I generally find florals to be a bit too “sweet” for me, I went in the opposite direction with the rest of my outfit–cargo skinnies, riding boots, and a leather moto jacket.

Tally Forth!

Red Pants, blue shoes, ultimate fashion experience

Instead of going neutral, push the boldness of a bright outfit even further by adding a colorful shoe.

I’m gearing up for Sunday’s Ultimate Fashion Experience (if you haven’t purchased your ticket yet, you can do so here)! One of my favorite designers to be featured in the show is TallyReNee (learn about their design philosophy here).

TallyReNee’s pinup collection draws on an all-American color palette and features wedge heels, polka-dot neckerchiefs, bustier-inspired tops, flirty skirts, collar necklaces, and of course, red lips.

To translate that look for a work environment, I donned slim red pants (for a dose of sexy), ultra-feminine, bow-topped platforms in navy (to keep the all-American vibe going), and a strong collar necklace for a bit of an edge.

If red pants are “too much” for your taste (c’mon—live a little!), I’d recommend swapping them out for a fitted pencil skirt in a deep, bold color (dark turquoise, anyone?) and a polished red lip.

While wedges and platforms inspire a pin-up feel, t-strap shoes also work to the same purpose, and add a bit of femininity.
