Classic Fashion Tips for Women

The key to dressing nicely isn’t necessarily having a lot of clothes it is knowing how to mix and match what you have. You can see the key to these clothes are the bottoms are solids. The pieces of interest are the accessories and the tops have patterns. These looks are classic and not overdone. You can get additional looks by using the scarf as a belt. I would also wear the flower button down open with the grey tank underneath or depending on the color of the polk a dot shirt you could put that under the flower shirt. It is perfectly fashionable to mix patterns if they are in the same color story.

Fashion tips for women are a must these days!  If you aren't sure what to wear, these are a must for you!

Classic Fashion Tips for Women

There are 5 rules of fashion you should always observe.

1) Get clothes that fit. Do not just go for the number on the tag. I always grab a size up and size down in something to make sure that it fits correctly

2) Know what colors look good on you and wear those colors. I look horrible in what I call the Easter colors (pastels) I tend to buy more jewel colors since they look better on me.

3) Wear the right undergarments and make sure we can’t see them

4) Dress up every day you never know who you will meet. I am totally against wearing your Pajamas to the store it is just as easy to throw on one of the looks above.

5) This rule is so important do not be afraid to try new things. Clothes aren’t permanent. If you have a friend that you think is stylish ask for their advice if you do not know what to wear.

Bonus tip: You do not have to spend a lot of money to look great. I challenge myself to buy outfits that are less than $20. I am a huge fan of thrift stores, inexpensive accessories, clothing swaps and stores like Old Navy where you can get great pieces that you can mix and match.

Best Holiday Gifts for the Functional Fashionistas

I used to think I was too practical to be concerned with fashion. I never pictured myself as a girly girl. It felt like sacrifice, like I had to give up comfort and reason to be girly. It just seemed too complicated and overwhelming. I wanted the things I wore or carried with me to have a purpose beyond just to look good, if an accessory was just that then I was happy to leave it at home or to never own it at all.

People change. I am now a self professed girly-girly, fashionista, lover of all things that make me feel pretty. But some things have stayed the same. I still remain practical and love when functionality and fashion combine in the ultimate must have accessory or clothing item.

the best gifts for the functional fashionista

I am sure I am not alone in my love for functional fashion. I am sharing my favorite fashion finds for the functional fashionista. If you are looking for gifts for the women in your life, I am confident they will love one of the items listed below.



An infinity nursing scarf is the perfect gift for breastfeeding moms who want to nurse their babies discreetly with style.


Infinity Nursing Scarf

This is the holy grail of functional fashion. The infinity nursing scarf is not only a great looking scarf, it is a breastfeeding cover for nursing moms. It can be worn as a shawl or a head covering. You can even use it to swaddle baby or as a car seat canopy. Trust me any moms on your list will love unwrapping an Udder Wraps Infinity Nursing Scarf this holiday season.

An Infinity Nursing Scarf is the perfect baby shower gift

Hair Tie Bracelets are the perfect gift for the fashionable ladies in your life who have long hair

Hair Tie Bracelet

Maybe you are asking what is a hair tie bracelet? It is ingenious that is what it is. I have long hair and often find myself grabbing a hair tie and wearing it on my wrist. Soon though the hair tie is annoying me because it is irritating my skin. So I take it off my wrist and toss it in my purse where it gets lost in the abyss. I also hate the way hair ties look on my arm. Hair tie bracelets are the perfect way to keep your hair tie handy and look your wrists looking good.Perfect for the health concious functional fashionista, the Amazefit will make her happy this year


Can I tell you a secret? I think Fitbits are ugly. I also think they are uncomfortable. Maybe I am overly picky but I don’t like the way my rubber banded Fit Bit feels on my wrist. Fortunately, I found the perfect answer for fit conscious fashionistas. It is called an Amazefit and it tracks your steps, distance, calories burned, and sleep. The Amazefit Moonbeam Activity and Sleep Tracker is the perfect gift for the functional fashionista who is would rather not wear a less than attractive Fit Bit.

These Hugger Mugger Batik Yoga Mat bags are just adorable and would make my inner yogi so happy.

Yoga Mat Bag

I have wanted a bag for my yoga mat for so long. It is just one of those things that I don;t want to spend money on for myself but would LOVE if someone would get me one as a gift. These Hugger Mugger Batik Yoga Mat bags are just adorable and would make my inner yogi so happy.

Undercover Waterwear is the perfect gift for the traveling fashionista on your holiday shopping list.

Undercover Waterwear

Traveling fashionistas need clothing that is both fashionable and functional. When visiting the Philippines recently, I had to figure out how to dress for multiple activities in one day. I needed to be able to go from fancy lunch at a chic restaurant to a 45 minute boat ride in an underwater cave back to a business casual dinner. I needed an outfit that was appropriate for dining in fancy restaraunts and for getting soaked on a boat. Impossible? Nope. Undercover Waterwear makes clothing that is resort wear that functions as a fashionable dress but can also get wet. It dries quickly and no one will know you are wearing swimwear.

This Undercover Waterwear dress is a perfect outfit to take you from resort casual attire meetings and lunches to water activities without ever needing to change

Gift giving doesn’t have to be complicated but I know sometimes I get stumped by some of the people on my list. I hope my ideas for the perfect gifts for functional fashionistas help you get your shopping done and spread some holiday cheer under your Christmas tree this year.

From Fam to Glam – holiday fashion for every holiday occasion

This is a Fashionista Event Opportunity, and is hosted by Still Blonde after all these YEARS and Modly Chic.

Finding the perfect outfit for every holiday event or occasion can add another layer of stress to your  holiday preparations and planning. As a self proclaimed fashionista, I want to look my best all the time whether I am trimming the tree during a casual family get together or sipping champagne at a holiday party. I am so excited to share my holiday fashion find with you! This comfortable and stunning outfit from Monroe and Main can go from an activity with the FAMily to any GLAMourous event this holiday season.

Holiday Fashion needs to be able to take you from Fam to Glam. These gold jeans can do just that.

Holiday Fashion = Gold Jeans!

What if I told you you could rock holiday fashion at almost any event this year wearing comfortable jeans? I am serious! Jeans! But not just any pair of jeans, oh no. GOLD JEANS! I have to admit I was a little hesitant to get gold jeans. I have seen them on other fashionistas and loved the look but never thought I could pull it off. Well guess what I did and they look fabulous and you can do gold jeans too!

Holiday Fashion from Monroe and Main Love these gold jeans

These glamorous gold jeans are very comfortable and the relaxed fit is flattering for curvier figures. They can be worn with some sparkly black heels for a glamorous evening or black boots for a day of busy family activities. Shorter gals ( I consider myself in that category) will definitely want to add some height with their heels as these jeans wear long. It is nice to find a longer fitting pant that looks great with a heel.

Holiday Fashions for every occasion from Monroe and Main

I decided to wear the gold jeans with the crossover rib sweater in black. This cut of this sweater is so beautiful on every body type. The empire waist cut shows off all the right curves in all the right places. It accentuates your assets while slimming through the waist and flowing over the hips. I love this sweater. I love the flowing sleeves that are gathered at the cuffs. So pretty and the perfect piece to pair with bolder bottoms to complete your holiday fashion.

How to rock gold jeans! We are sharing 5 tips for wearing one of the hottest trends right now:gold jeans. You don't have to be afraid. Gold jeans are not just for the fashion bold. They are for everyone.

5 Tips for Wearing Gold Jeans

  1. Pay attention to fit – Go for loose relaxed fit to keep them wearable during the day. A skin tight fit will be harder to pull off for most of us and is not very daytime friendly. The Nikki Gold Jeans from Monroe and Main are a great fit for any size or shape.
  2. Don’t be afraid of color when wearing gold jeans. Think of them as neutral if it helps. Gold jeans look great with green, bright blue, navy, and of course black. You can even wear them with mauve, army green, or ivory.
  3. Dress ’em down  – You can wear gold jeans just like your favorite pair of blue denim jeans. You can adopt a rock star attitude for the day and pair them with a fitted t-shirt and a leather jacket.
  4. Do wear gold toned jewelry – I have never been a fan of mixing metals even though I have seen it done well. I am just not up for that type of fashion challenge and I think it is too easy to get it wrong when wearing gold jeans.
  5. Dress them up – Add a statement necklace, chunky bracelets, and sparkling pumps for glamorous evening wear. Maybe a some animal print pumps or a clutch.

I love the versatility of metallic jeans. Gold jeans look great with black, blue, green, and navy. They can be dressed up or down. I just can’t rave enough about how happy am I am with this look from Monroe and Main.
