Orange You Glad It’s Spring!!

The past few days have given us a jump start on what to expect for Spring weather here in New York City! With Spring just a few days away, the Big Apple is ready to wear Spring’s hottest color, Orange! Officially it is being called Tangerine Tango!  If you are a fashion warrior, you are going to go all in and wear your Tangerine Tango with pride. Here at F.I.T., I can assure you  it will be all over the place. For those of you who may be a bit hesitant about this season’s color, I have a solution. Shoes!

Shoes solve every thing! Really….every thing! You’re wardrobe from last year can be update by infusing Tangerine Tango as your “neutral” color for shoes. You can wear it with ANY color and hit two trends in one, Color Blocking and Tangerine Tango! I took the liberty to find 4 affordable options that will amp up the volume in your wardrobe.

These 3 styles, available at Zappos.com, are easy to wear while exploring the city because they are wedges and a platform.

I have always looked forward to the Payless designer collaborations. I purchased a pair of fashion forward wedges from Lela Rose last season and this year she came through again. I love this wedge and it’s super affordable and chic!

You can also be sexy and add just a hint of Tangerine Tango to your shoe with this gorgeous heel from ZARA. Isn’t it sexy?

So what ever your style and price range, there is a shoe out there for you to get accquainted with Tangerine Tango before you take the leap.

Next time we’ll explore how to wear the color in our clothing.

Love is in the air!

It’s that time of the year again! Love is in the air! Now, I think you should love yourself EVERYDAY and receive love EVERYDAY but on this day, you might want to show it just a little more. We could all use a little more love.

Whether you’re going on a date with your Valentine or hanging out with friends, you’ve got to look good to feel good! It doesn’t have to break the bank either.

Rule #1: When buying outfits for a “themed” holiday or special occasion, you should make sure you can wear it more than once a year.

Rule#2: You should be comfortable!

Rule #3: Don’t over spend. Come up with a budget and stick to it.

I found a few looks to fit whatever mood you find yourself in on Valentine’s Day.

If you’re feeling sophisticated, try this Classic look

Asos red dress

Are you a free spirit? Try this Boho look

Asos white dress

Do you like to be different? Here’s a Modern look

Asos green pattern dress

Is “Bling” a major word in your vocabulary? Here’s a show stopping Glam look

Asos bling dress

 

All of these looks can be worn through out the year and probably go with a pair of shoes you already own. They are also all under $100 and can be found on www.asos.com! You can look fantastic on a budget. Just because it’s Valentine’s Day, you don’t have to wear red! Be adventurous. Be unique.

So love yourself and look your best this Valentine’s Day. Send a picture to show us your look!

Summer is Finally Here!

FROM A STYLIST

Fashionistas rejoice!

It’s officially Summer and we can shed those layers and put on some color! Michael Kors is the epitome of American fashion and he has  shown a wonderful way to wear Summer’s bold and vibrant colors with accessories we can use all year round…..classic natural brown leather. What better way to make yellow “sophisticated”, hot pink more bold and greens pop! Something so classic, so American, can make clothing so different.

So go to your closet and pull out those leather belts, leather bags, leather sandals. No colored leather please. Just good old natural cowhide! Have fun! Summer is here but, hurry, it won’t last long.
