How to wear Greenery, the Pantone 2017 Color of the Year

Pantone, the world’s foremost color forecaster, has proclaimed Greenery, a fresh, yellow green, as the 2017 Color of the Year. I for one am really excited about it. As much as I am drawn to Rose Quartz, the color of 2016, it’s neither easy to wear nor a client favorite. As a fashion consultant in Denver, green is a favorite color of many of my clients, and most love all shades of it.

Or lastly, do you end up panic shopping, hitting the stores quickly buying something you’re not really sure about or don’t really love…just to go home with something? It doesn’t have to be like this!

6 Steps to a Perfect, Professional Outfit

We’ve all been there. You’re staring into your closet thinking “I don’t have a thing to wear!” Luckily, creating your professional or casual outfit for the day doesn’t have to be complicated.

Warm up in Trench Coats

There’s an odd phenomenon that happens in Colorado. When the weather is really cold, we wear our fabulous winter coats religiously. Then when the temperatures rise even just a bit, (and I’ve seen this happen at 32°F,) we shed our coats and freeze. It’s crazy, right?
