I spend a fair amount of my life fantasizing about having my own "What Not to Wear" -style TV show. Whenever I get to style my friends' closets or purge their wardrobes, I get to live out the fantasy a little. In this case, it was less of a "what not to wear" and more of a "you look awesome please wear this" scenario. My style partner in crime (the lovely and oh-so-stylish Raina) and I teamed up to style Patty's wardrobe, and what you'll see in this post is a little taste of the results. Having a gorgeous subject with an uh-mazing wardrobe made it all the more fun.
Again, a statement necklace can really spice up an outfit.
Shorts are completely en vogue right now, so pair them with a wedge or a platform heel for a hot date outfit.
Downplay a dress with a great belt and a cardigan to make it great for day wear (and for climates like San Francisco, layering a cardigan means you might actually get to wear a sundress more than twice a year).
This is one of my favorite outfits! I feel like she should be drinking Cuba Libres in Havana. Salud!
Pairing a cropped leather jacket over a sweater looks effortlessly cool. Black leather is great, but a cognac or brown shade is so modern.
And now , a testament to Patty's ridiculously awesome taste in shoes--a pair of incredible Chloe boots. I have such major boot envy I can't see straight. Patty even let me try them on (conveniently, we wear the same size shoe). What can I say? HEAVEN.
