How to wear primary colors

Happy 2018 babies. Who's ready for some new sh*t?! I love a new year like I love Mondays (no, seriously.) Call me an optimist, but I love the idea of a fresh page to make my mark on. For me 2018 is going to be all about work, especially this blog, and creatively pushing myself. That means trying new things - and I'm in the process of relaunching this site with a totally new look, feel, and lots of new content.

As for today, let's talk about a new combo of colors I've been loving and seeing making a huge comeback: primary colors.

While I love basics, if you want to step up your style game right now, let me suggest primary colors. The usual McDonald's classic color combo is popping up everywhere in high fashion as well as street style, and I couldn't be more into it. A color lover forever, there's something so fresh and playful about wearing your ROYGBIV loud and proud. In this post I've opted for a 70's take with double statement sleeves and a red pantsuit from Bebe. (Wearing the Roman jacket and Kayla pants in red)

What do you think of the look and primary colors trend? I had a lot of fun shooting this look with Stefanie Marie.

Expect to see more editorial style images like these for 2018! I can't wait to share more with you.

How to style a pantsuit

Pantsuits, jumpers, rompers with pants, whatever you want to call them, can be such a chic wardrobe staple, but also super hard to style. If you don't do it just right, it can end up looking like you woke up and rolled out of bed and hit the grocery store, or even worse, like you're a city worker or train conductor. While it's totally fine to have a nod to looking similar to the man who painted your house or an inmate, it's not usually my goal to totally go for it - Halloween not included.

All that aside, it's about the way you put it together, the width of the leg, if it has sleeves, etc. Here are a few tips for styling a pantsuit that will have you looking stylish, not in bed clothes or like you live at the state penitentiary. 

1) Layer up: Adding a scarf, vest, or jacket can break up the pantsuit and take it to a whole different level, or even make it look like just pants with a sweater!

2) Different leg width, different shoes: I love these pointed bow front slides (similar here) that I'm wearing in this post for pantsuits that are cinched at the ankle or skinny thought the leg. Other great options are mules, or flat sneakers. For a wider leg pantsuit or one with a flared leg, a platform, heeled bootie, or sneaker could be great, depending how long it is and where it sits.

3) Belt it, or opt for a pantsuit that cinches at the waist : As you can see here this pantsuit has a drawstring at the waist. I've never met a pantsuit I liked that didn't cinch somewhere on the torso area. Make sure you accentuate the waist or cinch at the hips with a belt to make sure your body isn't lost in all the fabric!
