How to Wear Color

Raise your hand if you’re afraid of color! If you are, it’s okay. A lot of people are not sure how to incorporate color into their wardrobes. Lani and Kyle have several clients who, prior to hiring RLS, pretty much only dressed in black. Color makes a statement, but you want to be sure you are making the right statement. Color affects your  appearance in many ways.

An Early Spring at the SAG Awards

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been itching for spring to come. The inconsistent weather here in the D.C. area isn’t helping my patience. One day it’s so cold my steering wheel feels like a block of ice, and the next day I’m walking around in cropped jeans and a light jacket. The red carpet at Sunday’s SAG Awards featured exciting colors and fun florals that made me even more anxious for spring.

Inaugural Weekend Fashion

Four more years of glamour! After this current term is over, there will have been 12 years straight of a fashion forward First Lady. As far as I’m concerned, Melania can do no wrong. Powder blue Ralph Lauren cashmere with matching powder blue pumps and gloves? The fashion world was agog, paying Melania the ultimate compliment by comparing her outfit to that of Jackie O’s inauguration look. I was at first shocked by the seeming simplicity of Melania’s Inaugural Ball gown, as it wasn’t much of a gown. However, I’ve come to realize how well she was expressing her true …

How to Wear Cropped Flare Jeans

This is one of those trends that had me scratching my head at first. Now I love it. This blog came about because we convinced a client looking for a new denim trend to try the cropped flare, but then when she went to wear the jeans without us, had a hard time figuring out the “right” way to style them. The fun part of the trend is that they look a little “off”, so it can be hard to decipher what is good off and what is just off! Here is the answer for all of you! You’re welcome. …
