Red Rocks – JCrew Event – Looks 3 and 4

Red Rocks!!  It’s great as the main event or the perfect accent color.

I will be at JCrew New Canaan, CT – TOMORROW, Wednesday, December 12 for a Special Color Style Focus Event:   10:30-2pm/24 Elm Street, New Canaan, CT.  I would love to assist you putting together a great look using color or a thoughtful gift!

Be sure to :  “Mention Cynthia Hudson and in addition to promotional discounts get another 20% off your purchase of $125 or more and a FREE JCrew tote bag”

Red Rocks as the main event in the first JCrew look here.

I styled it as an outfit which could be worn any cold day, as a really great sport spectator look or heading to cut down the Christmas tree outfit.  Layered with a cozy and trendy sherpa toggle coat over a classic wool fair isle sweater with red accessories, curvy toothpick jeans and awesome Nordic boots (love the red laces).  Of course, you need your cool sunnies too!

The following JCrew look started out as a dressy look with the burnout velvet leopard skirt and sequined cable knit sweater with chandelier earrings but then by pairing it with the silver bootie (my own) and camp socks it went much less serious – I love it for a party but also as a unique day look too.

Red Rocks here as the accent color in the sunglasses, the coat and the socks.

A touch of whimsy with the camp socks.

Wear a beret and the look goes French chic!

 

The sweater has beautiful details – the sequins make it a sweater you can dress up.

Styling with Color – Look 2

Styling with color is a fun and creative process.  I think most people default to typical and quiet combinations.  Clearly some colors compliment eachother and others do not – but I dare you to push the envelope and create a bit of surprise with your outfits.

The JCrew outfit here, styled for a casual party or even a meal out, combines a dressier, stiffer, lace fabric in the trouser with a super cozy, soft turtleneck sweater.  A more common decision would be to  dress up the red lace pant.  By combining a stiff fabric with a soft sweater in a warm color, like camel, relaxes the outfit and makes it feel more casual.  It also makes the pant more versatile.  By pairing with an unexpected combination of accessories like a tartan scarf and leopard print shoes and gloves makes the outfit more interesting.

Try styling with color by pairing combos you would not normally put together and combine a dressier piece with a casual piece – it will open up a whole new wardrobe world!!

Color for Personal Style – Look 1

As a lover of color, I believe it is a useful tool when creating your own personal style and unique looks. Mixing unexpected combinations and using colorful accessories, makes the outfit and most importantly, makes YOU stand out.

I have always loved JCrew, especially for it’s unique point-of-view. Consistently combining and styling color in fresh ways.  Which is why I was thrilled to be invited to collaborate with JCrew to host an event in their New Canaan, CT store with a focus on “Color Styling”.

The event is at JCrew:

Wednesday, December 12/10:30-2:00/ 24 Elm Street/ New Canaan, CT

Please come see me at the event!  I’ll be there offering my help, tips and styling advice.  Enjoy the discounts and if you mention my name, Cynthia Hudson, receive a cute, JCrew tote bag.

Follow my instagram @cynhudstyle – I’ll be posting all my JCrew looks this week!!!

Here is one of four looks I put together (more to come – check back).  This is a Chic Day Look – I love the combination of white, chartreuse and grey with the added pop of burgundy accessories to elevate the outfit.  And, metallics always add elegance and are a basic, so the gold bootie works well with this look.  Style Tip: Wear a lip color that matches a color you are wearing.  Chose a burgundy lip color to pick up the burgundy accessories. (If I am not wearing a color appropriate for the lip, I would choose to enhance my eye color and wear a nude lip.  For instance, a deep grey eye shadow, to match the cape, with a lip gloss or a nude/beige.)
