It’s that time of year again
(Long Island, N.Y.) It’s that time of year again. When retailers do everything they can to make us believe that the summer is over. They cruelly remind kids that they are going back to school and tell adults that they better get ready for fall or else. I’m all for being prepared, but it’s 90 degrees and just the beginning of August, so what’s the rush? Stores need to make room for all of that new fall merchandise, so it’s the perfect time to take advantage of sales.
Being that it is indeed still summer, all of those fun summer sale pieces can still be worn and even better, some of them can be worn all throughout the year. Just this week I picked up an adorable leopard print chiffon skirt from Club Monaco and not only was I excited by the price tag, $49, marked down from $129, I was doubly excited that I wouldn't have to put it away come the fall. I'll wear it now with a sleeveless top and bare legs, and in the fall and winter paired with a blazer and black tights; a wardrobe for all seasons.
Same skirt different seasons:
Throwing an arm party:
If you're showing up fashionably late to the "arm party", don't worry, I'm here to help. It's simple… just layer on your favorite bracelets. Mix and match fun colorful beads with shiny gold or silver metal, stack some patterned enamel bangles on top of a studded leather wrap and even add a thin string bracelet. Balance is certainly key, but there's really no right or wrong way to do it. It's all about your own unique style.
I also should mention that if throwing an arm party isn't for you, it's perfectly fine to host a more conservative "arm soiree" with a watch and few matching bracelets.
