Happy Friday, friends!

Many of you know how much I adore both '60s and '70s style and how I love drawing inspiration from those iconic eras, creating looks that fuse both then and now. Today's pairing was inspired by the '70s, using a couple of specific pieces in the look reflective of the era, one of which is this faux shearling moto jacket! Shearling was such a huge trend back then, specifically in hats and jackets. What I really love about this particular piece is that...

Happy Thursday, dear friends!

Today's post is different than most because it includes a product and brand review. If you've been a reader of The Style Contour for some time now, you know that I don't do many product reviews, simply because I'm very choosy with what I share with you and for many reasons. The most important reason is that I honestly consider you all to be my friends and I value the relationship we have and because of that, I will never share anything that I myself am not interested in or don't love or use myself. With that, Veeda, a natural feminine hygiene company...

Happy Wednesday, friends!

If you've been following this blog for some time now, then you know how much I love wearing color. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for a neutral monochrome pairing or an all black everything look, but I just instinctively reach for colors and patterns more. While there is no doubt you'd get more use out of a neutral solid piece than you would one that's in a vibrant color or print, there are certainly creative ways to style them differently each time around. One way I love to wear color is to...

Happy Tuesday, my dear friends!

With spring weather somewhere on the horizon, at least for those of us on the East Coast, who've yet to really experience true spring weather, I thought I'd share some LBJ (Little Black Jumpsuit) styles that I'd suggest for your body shape. I really love how jumpsuits have become a modern supplement to wearing a LBD (Little Black Dress). You'd be able to wear them in the same settings and scenarios you would a LBD, such as a wedding; you're guaranteed to look stylish and classy. Plus, they're great options for those of you who don't like wearing dresses. If you do enjoy wearing a dress, on the other hand, be sure to check out my "Tips to Find the Best LBD for Your Body Shapeguide.

Happy Monday, beauties! 

Anyway, today's look features one of my favorite leggings that has a wet finish and in a copper color, a combination I find to be quite unique, which is why I was drawn to them. I absolutely love...

Happy Friday, friends!

As mentioned on Monday, the weather here in New York is far from what's typical for spring, aside from the fact that it's been raining for the past couple of days, which of course is expected; you know the saying, "April showers bring May flowers." The thing is, it's been really cold, like 30 degrees cold! I shared some tips in Monday's post, "How to Exude Spring When Winter Won't Leave", which provides some really great ideas for putting together a cute and cozy spring outfit for the day. When it comes to...

Happy Thursday, everyone! 

A popular trend this season is the micro pleat, which is basically a fine pleat. What I really love about them is that they're extremely figure flattering and look great on every body shape! Plus, they make you look not only leaner, but taller too! A side tip for all my petite ladies...

Happy Hump Day, beautiful friends!

As you can see, I paired the jacket with cool tones, since it's more of a mustard yellow shade, which also has a cool undertone. However, since it's yellow, I think it would look just as great paired with warm, golden undertones as well, making it quite versatile and flattering for every skin tone! As a side note...

I mean, we do want to look good while working, hanging, working out and of course, on the beach, right?! Sometimes, those styles are influenced by what's trending. Today, I will be sharing with you one one of the "it" styles in swimwear, the one piece, and what I suggest you look for that will work best for your body shape, so you can experiment with the trend with ease, 'cus you know this girl has always got your back before heading out the door or fitting room ;)

Happy Monday, my beautiful friends!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I told you on Friday how much I prefer to relax during the weekends and for the most part, I did just that. Some of you were telling me you do, too, so I hope you enjoyed every minute of it! So, can you believe that there's a weather advisory issued this morning for the freezing temps we've been experiencing here?! You guys, it's April! It seems as though winter doesn't want to leave. So, what do you do when you're technically no longer in the winter season, yet you're still experiencing colder temps? I believe I have some simple and practical ideas...
