Style Stop: 1 Vest, 3 Outfits

On today's "Style Stop," it was all about versatility! When you buy a garment, you should be able to think of at least three outfits you can make with the clothes you already own. To demonstrate this concept, I took a trip to Target to pick up a Neoprene Moto Vest for a whopping $8.99!

See how I integrated this trendy piece into my wardrobe (And learn more about how to incorporate Neoprene fabrics into your style HERE)!


Look 1: Funky Camo
NYC Tee, picked up by a friend who lives in the Big Apple; and Camouflage denims, The Loft.

Look 2: Office Chic
Fuchsia silk blouse, Talbots; Printed crops, Ann Taylor; and necklace tie, made by me.

Look 3: After Hours
Black Perfect Tee, J. Crew; and  graphic print skirt, White House Black Market.

The ON-AIR Look
Today, I wore a Talbots color block dress with necklace and earrings from Forever21 and a striped bangle by Kate Spade.

Scuba Wear: How to Rock It

The spring runways were teeming with an unlikely fabric: neoprene scuba material!

If you're skeptical about diving in this new trend, you're not the only one. But you can easily pull off this look, by following these tips:

Don't be this fashion DON'T!
Less is More. Don't rock head-to-toe neoprene, lest someone mistakes you for a scuba diver.

Tommy Hilfiger 

Do Try a Mini Skirt. This is a super cute way to try out scuba wear. Plus, it makes for a stylish cover up when at the beach. There's nothing wrong with a little double duty action!

Juicy Couture Satchel
Upgrade With Scuba Accessories. Seriously, this Juicy Couture Neoprene Tote… #MustHave

Examine the Cut. Whether it's a pair of pants, a dress or a skirt, make sure it's flattering from all angles. Cheaper varieties of this trend can add bulk or bulging to your silhouette.

Add Heels. Otherwise, your look will resemble a fitness ensemble and less like a fashion-forward outfit.

Would you rock scuba wear?

There are some quirky trends afoot, so let's see what they had to say about them!

Winter Style

Did anyone else wake up this morning to the sounds of gusting winds? Well, I did. Disturbed, I rolled over to look at my mobile weather app to learn that it was 30 degrees outside - a chilly reality for those of us who were enjoying a few 70-degree days just last week. In other parts of the East Coast, the thermostat is showing temperatures in the negatives. Winter is officially here. So the question is, how do we dress for it?

You may remember my segment on WWAY on how to Look Hot When It's Cold, but that was pertaining to Wilmington's unseasonably warm weather. No one was talking about below freezing temps. So now it's time for a new game plan.

For windy days, let's think thick, bulky scarves. I'm personally a fan of the Infinity Scarf. Just about every store in town sells a variation of this nifty little bugger. I'll be sporting one that I purchased on the streets of D.C. a couple of years ago. It's super dense and can wrap around the head to serve as earmuffs, as well.

Gloves are a no-brainer, but the type of gloves you wear is key. When temperatures dip below freezing, you probably should invest in a real pair. You know…the leather variety with a lining inside the glove to keep your hands toasty warm. The cheap variety won't do, folks. Trust me.

Get a real coat. I'm guilty of buying cute, stylish coats that are more fashionable than practical. They fit me to a tee…that is until I actually wear a real sweater underneath them. Then we have a problem. When buying your winter coat, think about what you'll be wearing underneath it. Give yourself enough room to layer and look for a little insulation. To stay on trend, look for a Boyfriend Coat or maybe something of the Mixed Material variety.

Stay warm today, folks!
