Fall Fashion: Women's Style Edition

136246006.jpg

This season's styles, colors, and trends have me crushing hard - I'm literally falling for fall!

Beautiful Cobalt, Striking Burgundy, Comfortable Grey, and Funky Army Green are just a couple of my top favs for color this Fall.

Grab an oversized sweater, pair it with a great pair of dark jeans, throw on a bright accessory - and you are looking STUNNING! 

Or if you want to dress it up - Plaid is the name of the game this fall. Plaid skirts with sweaters, Plaid dresses, or my fav...Plaid PANTS!  They will all have you looking put together and stylish.

Can't wait to see all you beauties in your Fall Fashion. Post a pic to Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter and #TaylorMadeCoaching to the post!

Cold Weather Fashion to Keep Your Style Hot!

113062451.jpg

Has the winter weather got you down? Well, we know the cure all for that…warm fashion!

While we push through this second half of winter, we want to make sure that you have the right pieces to keep you cozy…while also looking Hot!!

The “On-Trend” looks for Winter are similar to the Fall, with a little more of a “cozy” touch.

A warm oversized plaid cape with a great pair of skinny jeans, and your favorite boots is one way to look stunning while staying warm on snow days.

Printed sweaters with a great pair of colored painted denim pants, an oversized infinity scarf and a pair of booties is the perfect ensemble to wear while having a shopping day with the girls.

Looking for a great date night look, but want to stay warm? Grab a sexy pair of liquid leggings and pair it with an elegant blouse, a great statement necklace, and a hot pair of heels.

A personal favorite of mine is an awesome pair of printed pants with an oversized cardigan and my favorite booties. I love adding a statement necklace and an oversized scarf to keep me warm and fashionable.

Make sure to complete every outfit with your favorite coat…and even better if it’s brightly colored! We love seeing a great coat that can be bright and stands out as an outfit on it’s own.

Don’t forget your options for extra warmth…grab a chunky infinity scarf, a knitted beanie, or a winter wool hat.

Keep using the great pieces that you got in the fall and just layer them to make sure you are getting the most use out of your wardrobe. Don’t be afraid to add more layers for warmth – just make sure that it’s your style!

Sending warm fashion wishes!

Winter Fashion to Warm Your Style

105910986.jpg

With winter weather just around the corner, we want to make sure you are all ready and prepped to look your best and feel even better!

The “On-Trend” looks for Fall are transitioning perfectly into the winter season.

Leather accents on sweaters with a great leather pant or painted dark denim are great to pair with your favorite pair of leather booties.

Plaid button downs can easily be worn by themselves with your crushed denim skinnies and statement necklace, or pair the plaid with a colored vest to keep you warm.

Blazers or your favorite crew neck sweaters give more options to style your plaid button down while also layering for warmth. Add your riding boots to either choice for a completed winter look.

A personal favorite of mine is the high waisted skinny jean with a statement blouse and clutch.

Make sure to complete every outfit with a single strand necklace and stud earrings to portray your polished and confident look.

And for extra warmth…grab a chunky infinity scarf, a knitted beanie, or a winter wool hat.

Keep in mind that you will get the most out of your winter wardrobe by mixing and matching. Think outside of the box and change up your layering pieces, pants, and accessories.

Happy Holidays!

In need of some Fall inspiration and wardrobe direction? This season’s accessory trends are just the thing to get us excited and ready for the cool air around the corner.

From single stranded statement pieces, to fun & functional bags, you will have no excuse to stay in this season.

Pair your business attire with a great “from the top” bag, a single stranded crystal necklace, an elegant belt, and top it off with your favorite stacked shoes.

Or for a ladies night out, grab some sexy femme fatale pumps and a statement portfolio purse to hit the city in style.

Pearls are also a big “yes” this season and can easily make your work attire look polished, while transitioning nicely to dinner out.

Fall Fashion...Burgundy, Cobalt, & Leather...Oh My!

95248038.jpg

If there is one thing that we can all look forward to, other than the crisp cool air of fall, it’s the fashion trends of the season that never disappoint.

This year, fall fashion is speaking directly to my heart. Comfy Fisherman Sweaters, Full Skirts, Flats w/ Detailing, and Leather Motorcycle Jackets – just to name of few. It all makes me want to crawl up in front of the fire with a great book and a cup of hot tea.

The many lovable trends this year could keep us all shopping for days, but a must-have for your wardrobe should be that awesome motorcycle jacket that fits you just right with just enough edge but not too much biker.

Menswear inspired fashion for women is a biggie this season and plaid is the new neutral. Also, make sure to note that the big colors of the season are burgundy, cobalt, and jewel tones. Pastels will be the most unexpected colors that you will notice while shopping for your fashion needs.

Tiny stud earrings and flats with detailing will be the perfect addition to any of your fall pieces, and if you are feeling flirty – grab one of those full skirts that you will see all around.

No matter what fall trend you are falling in love with, make sure that you find pieces that are timeless and that will transition easily into winter, to get the most bang for your buck!

What to Wear...to Work!

149932514.jpg

It’s one of the questions that I hear the most…What should I wear to work?!

Maybe you have your casual-wear all set, but when it comes to appropriate work attire that says, “I mean business”, you are at a loss. Well no worries, I’ve got you covered.

There are a couple great pieces that every working woman should have, and they will easily transition through the seasons. Now, the colors can be your personal preference, but some of your wardrobe staples should be: a great tailored dress, a blazer that is appropriate for your height and size, a pencil skirt, a great pair of nicely fitted pants, and some great dress shirts that can easily be layered.

To give a completed and polished look, don’t forget to have some great accessory pieces close by to accent your wardrobe with pops of color and style. And of course make sure to have the perfect pair of pumps or flats to top it all off.

The Perfect Summer White

87123019.jpg

When completing your summer wardrobe, one thing to keep in mind is having pieces that allow you flexibility and ease.  A pivotal piece that allows for that, is the perfect pair of summer white jeans.  They can work for all events and occasions, and go from day to night without skipping a beat.

As far as white jeans go, these JBrand Destructed Denims had me at hello.  They are the perfect length and style for any occasion, and can be dressed up or dressed down in an instant.

Here I have two different, yet similar, looks paired with the JBrand Destructed Denims.  One is a Shoshanna Marissa blouse with Cole Haan Nude Manhattan flats, and the other is a Shoshanna Renee Blouse with Christian Louboutin Nude Patent Pumps.  Two great options that can easily be worn to a BBQ in flats, or a dinner al fresco in pumps…and since summer has “officially” begun – go grab those jeans and enjoy it!

Fireworks & Fashion

86480774.jpg

July 4th is just around the corner, and I want to make sure that you look patriotic, relaxed, and in-style. Why not make it a goal to enjoy your 4th of July picnic and fireworks display in the most relaxed and fashionable way possible, while not breaking the bank or looking super cheesy.

Here I have put together a couple of options that are easily duplicated with the basic red, white, and blue. Any navy and white striped piece that you already own can be accented with some great red accessories for that pop of patriotic flare. Or, you can also venture out to find some new red, white or blue items. Keep in mind that you want to be able to wear them again for other functions, so don’t go too crazy with your choices.

Either way, enjoy your time with family and friends, and Happy 4th!

We Love Boston

79263600.jpg

While we are based in Boston, we have all been effected by the tragedy of Monday’s Boston Marathon bombings.  Some in large ways, and others in small.  We wanted to share a small tribute to those that we love and those that were impacted.  We send our deepest condolences to the families and friends of those we lost, and those that were victims of this tragedy.  We are One, Boston and we will triumph.  These yellow and blue pieces are meant to honor the Boston Marathon Tragedy.  We love you, Boston.

The city of Boston has set up a foundation for the families that were effected by this tragedy, and if you are interested in helping their cause…please visit
