Frumpy February

I know the weather still stinks and everyone is ready for spring. It will be here before we know it. Here are a handful of tips to get you through Frumpy February.

1. Wear your vest on top of your coat, so everyone can see it. It is a great way to dress up a basic, inexpensive jacket. Choose a vest in a bright color for a fun, sporty look, or go glam with fur or feathers.
2. Emphasize your waist, even in a shapeless sack dress. You do not have to wear something tight or cinch in your waist to create a flattering silhouette. Layer a cropped jacket over an otherwise shapeless dress for instant waist emphasis without a belt.
3. Give your jeans a rest. Wearing an oversize sweater with a pair of skinny jeans is so boring! Add a hefty dose of romance and glamour to that big, cozy sweater by layering it over a long, flowing dress or skirt. You will still flatter your figure but the overall look will be more comfortable and infinitely more beautiful.
4. Do not let one awesome accessory completely dominate your outfit. It is easy to fall in love with an amazing pair of shoes or a fun bag when you are out shopping, but actually wearing them can be a little intimidating. The easiest thing to do is just wear all black and call it a day, but then your whole outfit becomes about that one accessory. Suddenly your shoes are the star of your outfit, when that role should be played by you. Keep the black dress, but add a little white to help break up all that black and add a few more fun, colorful accessories into the mix to help balance your look and distract from those fabulous shoes, thus keeping the focus where it belongs: on you!
