AND THE AWARD FOR BEST DRESSED GOES TO...
“End each day with a grateful heart and a Herve hanging in your closet” Connie D Franklin. Okay, so it’s not really a quote, we just made that up but it doesn’t ring any less true! This jewel tone dress is a real gem! Perfect for parties or events, you know you’ll look amazing and feel confident. The, appropriately named, bracelet length sleeve shows off your sparkle without exposing too much skin. And yes, you know our favorite feature must be the little peekaboo cutouts along the neckline and hem.
IF I WAS YOU, I’D WANNA BE ME TOO
If this dress had a personality, it would probably be a fun-loving extrovert and life of the party! Why stay home, when you can go out looking this fabulous! You don’t even have to be a good dancer when you can use the dress as a distraction and just swing the fringe around - you’ll totally look like you have rhythm!
POWER TO THE V
Crew necks aren’t for everybody, but v-necks? Yes, v-necks are for everybody! With too many benefits to name, we’ll just hit on a few of our top reasons - the main being that v necks are more flattering. It has a way of creating a taller, longer look and draws the eyes up towards the face- regardless of your body type! It also enhances the neck and lengthens the body, which is why it’s an excellent option for those with a shorter neck and broader shoulders. Another great thing about the v-neck, is its versatility. You can opt for a deep V, a wide V and if it’s a button up shirt, you can mix it up! Personally, I love having the extra space so I don’t get makeup on my neckline! The merlot jacquard dress is a nearly universally flattering fit. After seeing it on several bodies, we can testify to this! a nice relaxed skirt give you room to move while the top is perfectly tailored. Balance - gotta love that balance!
A sheath dress is form fitting for a streamlined silhouette hitting at or above the knee. The quintessential classic-girl’s “go to” piece, the sheath’s contouring style is an essential in any working woman’s wardrobe. The office shouldn’t go without this burgundy piece, and consider it for weddings and other events, too!
MESS WITH IT TILL YOU’RE HAPPY
How you wear it is almost as important as what you wear it (if not more so). The shirt tuck, for example, has a transformative effect on your look. Tuck all the way, for smart casual; the front tuck, for off-duty; the side tuck, for deliberate insouciance; or no tuck at all, for an oversized vibe – get in front of the mirror and try them all for good measure. Similarly, the sleeve roll, cuff turn, belt cinch and collar flip, are all little ways to mess with your look that will change e-v-e-r-y-thing.
THE HANGER JUST DOESN’T CUT IT SOMETIMES
When traditional fashion fuses with contemporary style, beautiful things can happen. At LIBERTE, we love demonstrating exciting styles for our audience - because the hanger just doesn’t do it for clothing the way a body does. Every woman needs a black dress in her wardrobe (or a hundred, we’re not judging) and this kimono style dress is an incredible twist to both the kimono and the black dress. Flattering in every way, the arms are covered, the v neck elongates, the belt nips in the waist and the color minimizes. It’s a fabric that words do no justice - so we recommend stopping in to feel it ;)
UP THE SPARKLE ANTE
Who says the tree should have all the fun?! We don’t mind sharing some of the glory!
No holiday party outfit is complete without a pair of statement earrings.
But in the best way!! We all love an always-classic navy dress. Navy is a sophisticated staple and every woman should know how to use it to her advantage. Business attire is better in blue than in black. Weddings can be tricky to dress for, but this makes it pretty effortless. Even, dare we say, the funeral dress can cause a lot of stress and pressure - don’t let what you wear distract from what you should be feeling at these occasions.
THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH STYLE
The secret to staying stylish is in the classics. Outfits that are too trendy will not sustain - just look at the fashion icons and how they always stick with pieces that never go out of style. This means Audrey Hepburn’s black sheath dress, cigarette pant or fitted black sweater. In this look, we modernized it with a long gold threaded necklace and studded grey denim. This look has a mysterious appeal because of the warm port colored cashmere and gold give a contrast to cool grey jeans with silver studs. Yes- we love mixing metals, and this is a perfect illustration of out to do it!
Be cozy on your date night, but still completely kiss worthy with this inviting and sexy look! Your date will thank you for not shutting him out with stiff layers, but rather soft cashmere that he can enjoy while whispering sweet nothings! The off shoulder Christopher Fischer sweater is a current fave because it has a vintage feel that is very feminine. We love feeling this lovely!
