Looks for Less: Stunning Sunnies For Sunshiny Days

There’s no doubt sunglasses are a staple accessory for gloriously sunny weather. From a practical standpoint, you need to shield your eyes from the harsh UV rays, and after all no one likes squinting in vacation pictures. Luckily, there are tons of different kinds of sunglasses under 100 dollars available to fit everyone’s individual style.

Looks for Less: Step into Spring with Mules and Low Block Heels

Shhh, listen- can you hear that? It’s the sounds of birds chirping in the morning! Spring is in the air and daylight savings is finally on our side with more light in the evenings. Sunset cocktails anyone? While I may be getting a little ahead of myself (we did get snow this week in both New York and Chicago after all!), it’s never too early to browse your favorite brand’s looks for spring and start strategizing your wardrobe. For shoes, I’m loving mules and low-block heels for many different reasons.

Looks For Less: All You Need Is A Pop of Print

Spring is almost upon us, and hopefully the first days of warmer weather and sunshine involve airing out your wardrobe, as well as sipping on rose and enjoying a family meal al fresco. Even though some days may still be chilly enough for your outfit to include a peacoat and a lightweight scarf, it’s never too early to start assessing the pieces you’ll want to snap up for the new season.

Looks for Less: Accessories to Brighten Up the New Year

Does your 2017 need a little brightening up? Whether it be the constant barrage of news headlines so far this year or the dismal clouds and lack of sunshine, why not look on the bright side and spruce up your look with a highlighter-hued accessory? When worn with all black or neutral colors, bright accessories are easy to pull off.

Looks for Less: Cozy Coats to Curb the Chill

In most places, coats are an esseintial for winter weather, especially on the blustery January streets of New York or Chicago. Instead of feeling blue about the holidays being over or miffed your New Year’s resolution has already gone down the toilet, why not take advantage of the sales and get yourself a couple more coats? As you know, coats come in a variety of different styles for various looks and occasions, and not all of them cost as much as a luxury handbag. I’ve rounded up some inexpensive yet quality coat picks for style inspiration or for easy online shopping.

Looks For Less: Elegant, Practical and Fabulous for the Holidays

The holidays are a fabulous and festive time of year. Everyone seems extra happy and the abundant decor is very cheerful. There’s freshly fallen snow, tinsel and goodies for all. However, at times things can be pretty stressful. There are presents to buy and wrap, cookies to bake and parties to attend. With all the million-and-one things to do and family activities to organize, no multitasking woman has time to be concerned with the last minute age old question before dashing out the door: “Oh no, what to wear?”

Looks For Less: Velvety Holiday Handbags

There’s no doubt velvet is trending these days, especially with the 90’s trends coming back (for better, but often for worse). Luckily this trend is for better, and just in time for the holiday season. Velvet pants are very chic on a lot of women, but may not be for everyone (including me – I’m too short to pull them off). Also, velvet dresses tend to look like a figure skating costume on me. So what’s a girl to do? Invest in one (or all five) velvet bags!

Looks for Less: Druzy and Quartz Autumn Baubles

Recently, I’ve been wearing a lot of jewelry featuring natural stones, like druzy, geode or quartz, and I’ve always loved opal. I adore the way it looks with different metals and they always seem to match other jewelry styles when worn together. The subtle sparkle and the way the color of many pieces changes in various lighting is always so unique. Beautiful baubles like these tend to catch people’s eyes and garner many compliments

Looks For Less: The Polished Holiday Suit

Holiday parties are nothing new, and neither is the stress of choosing different outfits to wear for each occasion. While the first is definitely a tradition, the latter shouldn’t be. You no doubt already have sequined pieces and sparkly accessories from past holiday seasons and shouldn’t be tempted to splurge on any more non-practical pieces you’ll only wear a couple…

Looks for Less: Simple, Sophisticated Jewelry

Have you ever bought a fabulous piece of jewelry and thought you’d wear all the time, only to find out it clashes with almost every ensemble you try on? Me too. Lately, I’ve been trying to avoid this disappointing dilemma and only buy simple, gold jewelry that goes with nearly everything and can be dressed up or down. It’s more…

Looks For Less: Colorful Croc Clutches & Carryalls

For Fall 2015, designer Marc Jacobs sent his models down the runway in elaborate coats and dresses. However, the real highlight of the collection was the bags! The girls held gorgeous, croc-textured clutches and tiny bags. The stunning pieces perfectly complemented the collection, but would also look amazing as the focal point of any fall ensemble. Wear with a pencil…
