Look great on a budget: Maternity style secrets
March 13, 2009
Just because your budget is shrinking doesn’t mean your style has to! Michael Kors recently gave insider tips on how to look great in today’s economy to InStyle magazine. We’ll show you how to take his advice and apply it to maternity fashion.
Project Runway judge and American designer Michael Kors gave some great style secrets — and here are a few:
1. It’s a season for seasonless: Spring is all about clothes you can wear most of the year. Weight matters. Ban summery colors in heavy fabrics. No one needs a min-green wool Easter coat.
2. Neat and polished: What’s right for now is looking pulled together. For me, the smartest way to do that is to mix the unexpected with the familiar, like a ballet flat in white cheetah or a sleeveless sheath in scarlet or purple instead of black.
3. Check your basics: Before buying new pieces, look in your closet for staples that ground them: white jeans, ribbed turtlenecks, flat knit v-necks, fitted pencil skirts or a fresh white shirt. Buy the best quality you can afford.
