Rachel Zoe Answers YOUR Style Questions (from Glamour.com)I thought this was pretty interesting, so I thought I'd share.
What’s a fall date outfit that’s cozy but still fun and sexy?
Rachel's Answer: Start with your cutest summer dress. Put a T-shirt under or a cardigan over it, then drape on a huge, fantastic scarf. The idea is that you can wrap the scarf a million different ways or leave it hanging down like a shawl. I love ones in a print or some sort of color. Finally, add high wedge boots and a cute hat.
I am forever aboard the “slouch lover” train. I love slouchy bags, sweaters, sweatpants and jeans. How do I wear that stuff and not look schlumpy?
Rachel's answer: You want to keep some element that shows your body and still looks sexy. If you’re wearing slouchy trousers or jeans, keep whatever is on top more fitted: a tee, button-down top or sweater. Likewise, if your top is slouchy, keep the bottom slim. You can’t wear an oversize sweater, oversize jeans and an oversize bag—that’s too much.
Your Q: I love ruffles. How can I wear them without looking like a little girl?
Rachel's answer: If you follow the right rules, ruffles can be classic French chic—and not at all “little girl” (or pirate!). Avoid an explosion of them and keep them to your collar, cuff or lapel. I’d pair a ruffled shirt with jeans and a fitted jacket. See—cute!
I need to make my work wardrobe look new but am not doing a lot of shopping. What are a few things that I should buy to freshen up my look?
Rachel's answer: In this economy, you are not alone. What me and my team like to say is, just like you recycle things for the environment, recycle your wardrobe as well. It’s about adding key pieces that you really need and will covet for a long time in your closet: A black fitted menswear inspired blazer, it must fit really well and be tailored properly. You can throw it over any dress, any jeans and a top. I love a great fitted androgynous blazer. The high waisted pencil skirt from the '40s and in the '80s, mixed with very tailored jackets. In addition, some flouncy skirts with a fitted t-shirts and tank tops. It's the mixture that's key.
