For a casual Friday look,  you could try pairing a pair of dark wash high-waisted jeans with a white silk blouse and a tailored blazer in a neutral color such as black, beige, or navy. Add a pair of classic leather ankle boots in a neutral color and a structured leather handbag in a complementary color to complete the look.

As for colors, you could stick to a neutral color palette with pops of color in your accessories, such as a statement necklace or a bold scarf. Alternatively, you could experiment with rich jewel tones like emerald green, sapphire blue, or ruby red to add a touch of luxury to your look.

Overall, the key to completing your look is to choose high-quality pieces that are well-tailored and timeless, while also incorporating current fashion trends in subtle ways, such as through your choice of accessories or color palette.


Culottes : What Are They?

The professional terminology of the term culottes are an item of clothing worn on the lower half of the body. The term can refer to either split skirt and knee-high pants that stop at the knee, that allow for flowing movement. I also remember culottes being designed and then created for me to wear at a skate themed party my mother planned for me when I was in elementary school. I recall the red trimmed culotte pants being the perfect idea to wear for my skated themed birthday party where my clothing allowed for freer movement, so that I could skate freely along with my multiple. I look back on days past and I knew my mother's idea was indeed brilliant and I thank her for her wonderful fashion sense and her idea to have my outfit designed and created. I also learned later in life that they are a perfect to wear in Spring and they look absolutely divine with knee-high boots.

The colder the weather, the more important the accessory. The handbag becomes slightly larger, hats, scarves, gloves, ear muffs etc. become a must have. Fashionistas know the hat with pom pom or without is a slight way to show their fashion sense. A fur stole is really worn to provide warmth and beanies, mittens worn instead of stylish gloves are necessities. Overall, colder weather accessories become stylish ways to show seasonal fashion. 

There are several options when dressing for colder weather. However, you would never understand the importance of your handbag. So, when dressing for the elements and you find those perfect pair of boots, don't neglect to think of the purse that will make that outfit that much more stylish.
