I am someone that likes to travel light even though I have no idea how to pack properly so that I end up with everything I need. But last week when I arrived at my workshop I think I finally pulled it off! It helps that I’ve been shopping with my Stylist Angie for four seasons now.
One great tip is to create a list on your computer or iphone so that you don’t forget things like camera chargers and flip flops to get you to the hotel pool.
Ready for the one fashion item you cannot live without? Since I was the only one in the workshop wearing one, I figure we all need this tip.
Anytime I see a photo of a celebrity walking out of an airport, what does every single one of them seem to have in common?
Drumroll please. . . A scarf.
The reason I mention celebrities is because they often have stylists so I pay attention if I like what they are wearing. And I’m always looking for ways to be more stylish and at the same time warm because I get cold easily.
Mostly they should be long so you can wrap them many different ways and most importantly they keep you warm on a plane or if you have to sit in meetings in hotels which can get chilly.
When I learned the tip that scarves should generally be big and long, I realized that is why most of the little scarves I have in my closet go unworn. Also it’s worth it to buy a more expensive one with cashmere because they don’t wrinkle as easily.
Better to have one expensive scarf than five cheap ones that look, well cheap.
What colour should you buy?
If you have a purse in a great colour, buy a scarf to match, this way even if you are wearing all neutrals you’ll also be wearing a great pop of colour! Or there’s lots of great scarves that are colour blocked (above) so they will coordinate with three or four colours.
Black and white, gray and white or browns and creams works well if you wear lots of colour! I like animal prints in small doses like this scarf below:
