Fashion Fun! October 20 2015, 0 Comments
I love fashion, and I also love to have fun. Here are a few tips for having fun with your look this season:
High-Waisted Pants. Halloween is just around the corner, and what better time to dress up as Annie Hall than now, when the high-waisted pant has come back into style. I bought a pair of high-waisted khakis at Banana Republic years ago, complete with suspenders, and you better believe they’ll be coming back into my rotation of what I wear this season. Show off your pants (and your figure) by tucking in a billowy blouse or pairing them with a cropped jacket.
Fire Engine Red. I love bright colors, and what is more fun than a bright red? Whether it’s lipstick, nail polish or a bright red coat, this color will definitely make people stand up and take notice.
One Statement Earring. That’s right, one – not two. This new trend in the fashion world, whether you feel it’s brave or silly, is definitely a fun one. The idea is to wear one big earring as a statement piece. This look works best with chandelier style costume jewelry or vintage pieces.
You can find out more about these fun fashion ideas as well as others in my article that was published in the current issue of BellaMia Magazine. Visit today and check out this article on page 24 of the magazine. While you’re there, be sure to read the rest of the magazine filled with great articles about looking good and feeling good, both inside and out.
Fashion Tips for Women on the Go May 21 2015, 0 Comments
We all lead very busy lives. Rushing from one meeting to another at work, running errands for the household, attending committee meetings, sporting events and life in general keeps us on our toes until we finally fall into bed at night. How do you make sure you’re looking great as you go from one thing to the next? We have some tips that will keep you looking great without having to worry about extreme wardrobe changes.
A good pair of capris. Our Elizabeth and Melanie capri pants are not only perfect for this time of year, they’re also a great addition to your wardrobe to get you from one event to the next. Dress up the capris with nice heels and a jacket over a pretty tank top for work, and then switch over to your comfortable sandals and ditch the jacket for the soccer game, or a night out with friends.
And now is the time to add them to your wardrobe! Capris are on sale, 50% off, for Memorial Day Weekend!
Red lipstick. Don’t say it doesn’t look good on you, there’s a shade for everyone! Check out these tips from Cosmopolitan to find your perfect shade. There is nothing like a great eye-popping bright lipstick to change an outfit from “serious worker” to “I’m a girl ready for a night on the town”!
Dry shampoo. Maybe you’re good about going to the gym during your lunch hour. Or maybe you battled the hot summer sun all day and now you’re just extremely short on time! No matter what the reason, there are days when we just don’t have the time to wash our hair, especially with all the styling it entails. Using a good dry shampoo will give your hair a boost while saving you some valuable time. Check out TotalBeauty.com for their best and worst dry shampoos.
A great tote bag. You are going to need something to stash your work jacket in and keep your changes of shoes, from heels to sandals to cute canvas sneakers. Go ahead and splurge on a quality tote you really like, and make it a staple in your car.
While you are on the go, don’t forget to enjoy the freedom to Go Free!
Wear Red for Valentine’s and for Women! February 11 2015, 0 Comments
February is the month for red. From red hearts and red roses to red lipstick and red dresses, the bright color helps cheer us all up on these dreary cold winter days. Most of us associate that passionate color with the love and romance of Valentine’s Day. But wearing red in the month of February isn’t just for Valentine’s Day anymore. Thanks to the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women campaign, wearing red signifies your awareness that heart disease isn’t just a man’s disease. One in three women die of heart disease or stroke, and through education and raising awareness the AHA is communicating that there is a way to prevent those deaths and hopefully lower the numbers.
This is a message we totally get behind here at Go Free Pants. After all, being healthy and feeling good is the first step in feeling sexy and having confidence in yourself.
Take the advice of the AHA, and make some changes in your lifestyle to reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke. Here are a few small ways that make a big difference:
- Get more active. Whether it’s parking farther away from a store’s entrance so the walk is longer or setting up a regular date at the gym, getting your body moving is important for good heart health.
- Eat a diet high in fruits and vegetables and low in saturated fats.
- Control your blood pressure, especially if it is already high.
- Get a good night’s sleep.
Let the world know you’re aware of the risk factors and ways to prevent heart disease by wearing red often this month. People will definitely notice you in that bright color! Pick out your favorite red sweater or blouse and pair it with our comfortable Lindsay cords. You’ll not only feel sexy, but you’ll also be supporting a great cause!
Let Your Holiday Style Shine Through! December 02 2014, 0 Comments
The holidays bring its own style along with it, and I’m not necessarily talking about the big, bulky Christmas sweaters. Office parties, special gatherings, concerts and other events, culminating in ringing in the New Year, each give you a chance to pull out some special jewelry, wear your sparkly tops and sweaters and sport the high glam shoes that you’ve been dying to wear but couldn’t find the right occasion. Here are a few things I feel like I can get away with at the holidays, more so than other times of the year.
Red Lipstick. Whether it’s a Christmas party or a New Year’s Eve celebration, red lips are a must. Glamour has great tips for finding the right red lipstick for your skin tone.
Major Bling. This the perfect time to pull out those diamonds and pearls, and costume jewelry is just fine if that’s what you’ve got. Nothing says “party” like some sparkly jewelry! Just be sure not to over-accessorize. By limiting the amount of jewelry, you draw more attention to the one amazing piece that you want to stand out.
Glitter and Sparkles. We all have one of those tops in our closet that says Red Carpet! Now is the time to get it out! Whether it’s sequins or rhinestones, wear that thing with pride. And while you’re at it, pair it up with our elegant velveteen Go Free Pants with the satin pocket trim for a really classy look.
Party Dresses. The sequins aren’t just for tops and sweaters! Show off your fashion know-how with a statement making dress at this year’s Christmas or New Year’s Eve party. And why stick to the tried and true little black dress? Jazz it up with deep reds and glamorous golds, as seen on this Pinterest page. The choices are limitless, but they all have one thing in common -- a feminine, sexy look that is sure to turn heads.
Everyone at Go Free Pants hopes you have a great holiday season! Whether you’re booked with parties or you’re planning a relaxing time at home with the family, wearing some fun holiday fashions is a great way to enjoy the season and have you looking and feeling your best. Pull out that favorite Christmas ensemble that you only get to wear this time of year and embrace the holidays!
