Relax, it's just Fringe with Benefits

The weather is changing yet again, and we’ve not yet found a consistent enough climate pattern to determine a seasonal wardrobe. Relax, that’s what fringe with benefits are for. Relaxed fashion, easily paired from season to season, and day to night. Fringe can add a playful yet subtle tone to your daily ensemble. (In a not so overpowering way) It can also add just a little high fashion appeal. (Remember relaxed is key) Paired with perfect textures (Think suede, denim, or even velvet.) this is just what you need to keep winter polish, with a hint of spring surprise.

Styled Tip:

Do choose neutral tones for everyday wear. (Clothing, purses, shoes, and accessories all work well) 

A pop of color is great, but versatility is key. (Imagine cobalt blue heels every day, or a golden rod bag......see what we mean? Cute, but maybe a little too memorable.

 

You might also want to consider this seasons trending tones.

A couple of our favorite colors for Spring 2017 are pale dogwood (Think delicate pink) and hazelnut (beige-ish) Thanks to Pantone, these shouldn’t be hard to find in the windows of your favorite retailer. (Or that awesome fashion recycler boutique)

Go ahead browse those windows at the mall, maybe those chic thrift stores.........and spoiler alert! Wait for it....... Your own closet.    (Come on....admit it, those are the best shopping experiences ever!) And besides, we know you have a closet full of stuff you haven't seen in..........lets just say a few years. Now that's fringe with benefits.

Okay, okay. One more for the road.........

Give Us 2016 Style, Pretty Pleats?

2016 is really here and so is Spring Summer fashion.  Of course, we need to get through this somewhat brutal California winter (Just so you know…….……….anything under 50 degrees is harsh, at least we think so) Anyway,back to business. While we're still wearing ponchos, rain boots, suede Moto jackets, and knit hats(So fashionable by the way), Styled to Profession is here to warm up the forecast ( Well, at least for your wardrobe. The actual weather, there’s not much we can do but count down until spring. Still with us?)

First up, silhouettes that will help you accentuate your New Year’s Resolutions (Great thing is, doesn’t matter whether you are actually sticking to it or not.  This trend  looks great on most figures anyway.)

Puhhhhhleeeeeats, No really…pleats have never been so fun. Shorter pleated skirts show off those legs you’ve spent hours toning, longer skirts/dresses provide a less dramatic form for those inconsistent gyms months. Pants and shirts, are the ultimate coverage. (Think of it as using camouflage to become a shape shifter………especially after enjoying the plethora of good food guaranteed to shift some things around……uh huh!)  Relax, it’s not the private school style look you remember……These pleats are updated, fun, and in some cases micro……

Here are just a few of our favorite finds

 Pants, skirts, and dresses.. There's a style for everyone. Which style will you try?

 It seems we love the 1970's at Styled to Profession. Add booties and a leather for a bit more of an edge. Pearls and pumps add traditional glamour to this look.
