Most of us want to look chic and fashionable, but are pressed for time in the busy city. When we heard the buzz surrounding Derek and his amazing style tips, we wanted to share his top 5 for looking your best. Looking stylish, just became easier!
A white denim jacket. A great way to play off color and add a fresh feel to a look is with a white denim jacket. This is perfect for more casual office atmospheres or a night at the movies. Versatile and a fabulous wardrobe staple. You can find your LWDJ (little white denim jacket) at retailers such as The Gap
. Looking fab doesn't have to break the bank. I also love the way this looks against color - white against color makes a great summer style statement.
Big color is another huge trend this season. Add a pop to your look with an accessory for those who may be a bit color shy. This bag by Aimee Kestenberg
is a great way to add interest to your look. A bag like this literally goes with everything in your wardrobe and can act as a neutral. The compliments will roll in and you'll feel confident. Another great way to incorporate color is with a flirty shoe. AMIClubwear
is a great place to find cool shoe styles on a budget.
A party dress that's summer ready is definitely one of my top picks. Find a dress that flatters and fits well. I love this dress from Newport News
because of the embellished neckline, and this is also wonderful with a denim jacket thrown over it and flip flops for a concert. Think versatility! From the city streets to the beach this dress will go everywhere.
Many women want to look long and lean. The nude pump is the way to go. Not only will it make your legs look amazing - this wardrobe friendly staple literally can be worn with anything in your closet from your denim skinnies, shorts, to a sassy summer dress. This pair from AMIClubwear looks great and is budget friendly.
Many of my clients complain about being cold indoors and then they go outside and it's so hot. My simple solution and it's so in-style is a graphic printed scarf. You can wear it around your shoulders with a great dress, and then when you head outside you can easily tie it to your purse. Go for one that's fun! This accessory can be found on the streets of Manhattan, at the mall - it's a way to add a pop to your look! This one from Spiegel has an uptown feel to it but can also be worn with edgy looks, too.
Derek is also known for his incredible charity work with Manhattan's Bottomless Closet helping women rebuild their lives and get back into the work force with confidence.
