Your own style
Kate Young, celebrity stylist and designer of Kate Young for Target, offers tips on how to be your own daily stylist in Glamour magazine.
Buy cool basics that look good on everyone: Must haves are dark, skinny jeans, a white button-down shirt, a tailored raincoat and a great leather jacket.
Start with a neutral palette: Black, white, navy, cream — and add one piece in a pattern or bold color.
Don't worry about trends: Orange blouses may be “in,” but if you like pink better, a pink top is going to get a lot more wear.
Take pictures: Get the photos of your favorite looks and tape them inside your closet door. I rely on these “emergency outfits” when I have five minutes in the morning to get ready for a meeting.
Less formal than a suit jacket but dressier than a cardigan, a sleeveless blazer will add a touch of polish — and a cheerful warm-weather vibe — to your wardrobe, says InStyle magazine.
A highly wearable version of the suiting trend seen on runways, a chic white sleeveless blazer ups the fashion cred of a basic denim shirt and skinny jeans to create the ideal brunch ensemble.
Wear a tailored white sleeveless blazer to lend professional cachet to a full-skirted dress, resulting in a feminine but still office-appropriate, outfit. A pair of nude heels will elongate the leg and a deep purple satchel is roomy enough to stow all those daytime essentials.
Stand out this summer
Here are a few must-have items from People Style Watch to turn any summer outfit into a standout:
A dazzling necklace: Sparkly stones and colorful crystals are eye-catching, whether you go for a feminine, smaller-scale design or edgy spikes and tassels.
Vibrant heels: Playful prints, hues and embellishment give strappy, sky-high sandals a notice-me feel.
Sparkly sandals: Boho-inspired flats with shimmery crystals and jewels look so luxe.
A special top: With intricate beading — from a little to a lot — a silky tank and tee can be a showstopper.
