Dress pants are a staple in every person's wardrobe. They are the perfect foundation for a work look, but also can be dressed down for a casual dinner or even a wedding or baby shower. The key to having versatile dress pants is to find pairs that are unique.
Snakeskin is having a moment this spring and summer! I absolutely love this trend, since it looks super luxe and sophisticated. This print can really be treated as a neutral, similar to leopard print. No longer is this print reserved for just accessories. Rather, it can be seen on all types of garments from jeans to dresses to jackets to tops.
Yellow is a color that I have always loved, but never thought I could wear. However, this season I am really trying to embrace this sunny hue. When it comes to wearing colors that are out of our comfort zone, it is so important to look for the shade that suits you best. The yellow color I have on is bright, rather than being more pastel, which I think compliments my skin tone well.
Sometimes a great outfit is built around classic basics in your wardrobe. A cute summer tank, jeans, and a clean blazer make for a statement, without being fussy. To make a simple look more of a standout, add statement shoes and fun jewelry.
I've been loving matching separates lately! It's such an easy way to create a pulled together, yet thought out look. Currently, there is such a variety of matching sets out there ranging from blazers and shorts to crop tops and skirts, like I am wearing.
Unexpected color combinations are a great way to make a statement with your look. Choosing colors that contrast each other, while still complimenting each other allow for a bold, but sophisticated take. In order to keep your outfit looking polished and not over-the-top, try pairing hues that are in the same tones. For example, this magenta jumpsuit and fuschia blazer are warm tones that work well with one another.
To me, it is important to be an advocate for myself and for all other women. I feel that with the #MeToo movement being so strong within the past few years, it is a positive step for women being able to speak out and have their own voice. I have always felt that being a strong, independent woman is so important for yourself and for the future generation. My mother always taught me to stand up for myself and to go after my dreams in life.

I encourage you all to try this formula for yourself and, most importantly, establish a formula that works best for you based on the season.
