THE STYLE DUO in Fit and Flare Milly dresses!

One of the biggest trends in dress styles right now is the Fit and Flare dress. The fit and flare dress hugs the body closely at the bodice and flares out at the waist. The style complements every body type, creating shape for those in need of some curves or hiding large hips for those trying to camouflage a problem area.The fit and flare is flirty, fun and feminine and back in style big time. Some fashion experts argue that this trend never really went away but one thing is definitely for sure. This season the fit and flare dress is more colorful, versatile, and attention grabbing than ever before! We are loving the lace and leather versions, black and white frocks, floral garden party varieties and even neon numbers! No matter what kind you choose, you are definitely choosing the “it” dress! Pair them with high wedges or strappy sandals and you can go from day to night with flair!

“Hide Your Flaws and Feel Fabulous!”

We loved watching our segment on Dr. Steve WPIX-11 tonight.

But for those who missed it here are some tips on “How to Dress to Hide Your Flaws and Feel Fabulous!”

1. Use color to draw the eyes away from problem areas. For example if you don’t love your hips, thighs or legs, wear a blazer in a bright color so your eyes go to your upper body and not your lower half.

2. Accessorize! Dazzle with chunky jewelry and colorful scarves. And no one will notice your chunky calves!

3. Flabby arms? Embrace the cold-shoulder trend! Dresses and tops with cut out shoulders show a little skin without showing too much arm. It will look flattering and sexy.

4. Invest in a nice, comfortable wedge. Even ladies who cannot wear high heels love the wedge because they feel more balanced and supported. Try ones with an ankle strap. Petite and tall ladies all look great walking in a wedge!

5. Buy clothes that accentuate the positive and camouflage the parts of your body you aren’t as thrilled with. But most of all, remember no one is perfect! And with the right attitude and smile, you can always look AMAZING!


If you are into fashion like both of us but also over the age of (let’s say 35), you may not love going bathing suit shopping. You might be fit and healthy but let’s face it, no one looks the way they did in college or in their 20′s. But that doesn’t mean we have to wear boring swimsuits and mumus either. Last summer we did a great segment on WPIX-11 on how to keep things sexy but age appropriate on the beach. Check out the link below if you haven’t already seen it for some fabulous tips!
We are very excited for Summer 2013 and we want all our friends and clients to feel sexy, confident and appropriate on the beach. So here are some great options to get you pool and beach ready. Bring on the sunshine!
