What Shall I Wear Today?

Good-bye summer, hello autumn!

Yes, today is the first official day of fall 2010! Here in Denver, we have been graced with a fabulous Indian Summer so far this September, as I am sure many other locales have been as well. (I am personally loving every minute of it!) This is also the time of the year when we are tired of the summer clothes as they are a tad lightweight in feel and look for the cooler morning temps - yet perfect for the rest of the day, but we are also ready to wear what we've already purchased for fall, maybe at FASHION'S NIGHT OUT a few days ago?

"What shall I wear today" is the age old question - nothing short of putting our mornings into a tailspin! I agree, but I have a few of my own "never fail" outfits that are always right, every day, place and occasion! When I am faced with running late, outfits not looking right for whatever reason, I head to my black and white combos! Whether it be in a printed black and white dress or separates they are always right! In spring and summer, they may be more white jeans, cream pants or skirts on the bottom with black sweaters, blazers, embellished T's on top. For fall, pair these with a animal print belt, flats or purse and look perfect. Depending on where you're heading that day, you can dress this ever chic classic combo with the appropriate accessories and maybe a burst of color if you wish. Voila! You're good to go! Recently, many women must've had the same "what shall I wear today?" dilemma, as I was having a trunk show and saw 10 ladies all in black and white combos of all kinds and every lady looked tres chic!

Recently, I have fallen in love with another classic combo that gets me out the door fast this fall and again is always perfect for whatever event or occasion I am heading off to. Camel shades have been making their presence seen and it looks great!

Camel isn't the boring color from years past...when worn with's trendy and sleek, when paired with a punch of orange or red, it's tres chic, with black, grey or navy, it becomes classic and fabulous or even when a hint of leopard spots appear in your shoes, belts, purses, scarves... it's just spot on!

If when wearing the camel shade next to your face, isn't the best color for you, wear the camel on the bottom and put the more vibrant color near your face! Remember that too many spots can be overload so choose one leopard or other animal print at a time. Try the newer lightweight and updated denims with a tailored camel trouser, long necklaces and your favorite arm candy for a trendy look. Punch up the tailored camel coats and capes with fabulous printed scarves and gloves for additional color and warmth.

As the autumn turns into winter, both of these color combos will have you and me dressed and out the door in no time!

Happy Autumn!
