Style Icon – Phaedra Parks

The stylish Phaedra Parks is the Style Icon for January. I have always admired this woman’s sense of style from her days on the Real Housewives of Atlanta reality show. She was my favourite on the show because she is hardworking (this lady is a lawyer, mortician and Wilhelmina model, among many other jobs) and financially savvy. I like women who go through life like Bosses.

Phaedra Parks has a great fashion sense, which is why she is the Style Icon for the month. I love her pieces and how she puts them together. Her bags and shoes are always on point. She definitely has a good eye for stunning accessories. I would love to take a peep into her wardrobe. I am sure I would love everything in it.

Phaedra Parks Style Icon

Phaedra Parks’ style is very modern, chic and feminine. She has embraced her curvy figure and knows how best to style it. She also knows the best accessories to go with her pieces. This woman is an example of a lady on top of her fashion and style game. If you are ever in need of some fashion inspiration, you just need to binge watch Real Housewives of Atlanta on Amazon Prime and look out for the episodes Phaedra Parks appear in. That would be the dose of Fashion Inspiration you need.

I really hope Bravo brings Phaedra Park back on the show. She is a pleasure to watch and super entertaining. I hope they bring her back and get rid of some of the new faces on the show. They are so boring.

What fashion accessories you should wear depending on the job you have

Accessories are part of every woman’s arsenal and, if chosen correctly, they can give a whole new meaning to your entire outfit. Yet, if these are chosen regardless of the period or occasion, such as a formal meeting, they can entirely ruin your look. So how can you wear fashion accessories and look fabulous at your workplace?

 

Getting the office look right

To always make a good impression at your workplace, you must keep in mind that not every accessory is suitable. It’s necessary to accessorize adequately, so don’t wear anything exaggerated, extravagant, or out of fashion. Another good advice is to always choose something that relates to the nature of your job. Without any doubt, the key to success is and will always be a sense of balance.

Styling your accessories for work

For example, if you work in sales or have a law-related activity, avoid the big, opulent, oversized fashion accessories that can give your wardrobe the air of extravagance. The people you are interacting with will need to be able to concentrate on the discussion and on the arguments you provide, rather than be swiped away by your accessories and wonder why you chose to wear this or that. With this in mind, you should choose subtle accessories that can accentuate your style, like a pair of pearl earrings or a delicate silver necklace.

In case you do want to wear some oversized accessories from time to time, then pick out a monochrome classic outfit that you can accessorize with a statement necklet. For example, you could go for a jacket, turtleneck, a pair of crayon pants and stiletto shoes, all in black, with which you can wear a silver statement necklace. In this simple manner, you will have a balanced outfit and it can also produce some effects.

The power of fashion accessories

Although many people believe that the main problem is wearing too many accessories, even if they are missing entirely can also represent a mistake. For instance, if you work as an assistant manager or have any other job that involves decision-making, the lack of fashion accessories will make you look sober and commanding, which will not be in your advantage. Try, as much as you can, to add appropriate fashion accessories to your wardrobe, such as a wristwatch, a pair of earrings, a necklace or a subtle bracelet, pieces that will give you a more feminine and delicate look.

If you are a fan of the boho chic style, you can confidently wear handmade accessories in vibrant color if you work in a creative environment (copywriting or photography) because these will bring out your personality. As an example, the purple color inspires the presence of artistic qualities, thus projecting that you are perfectly capable of taking on creative tasks, while yellow brings out optimism and resistance to stress.

If you work in fashion, glamour or online modeling, then you can choose a more relaxed wardrobe or a smart-casual look, to which you can add special accessories. A casual black dress that serves as a canvas for a statement necklace or a simple white shirt combined with a black stone necklace, skinny jeans, and black stiletto shoes can represent two great outfits. It all depends on you and the way you choose to show your personality via the fashion accessories you wear.

5 Winter Shoe Styles Every Woman Should Own

It is common knowledge that if you have warm feet, then the chance of the rest of your body being warm is quite high. With that in mind, I thought I would put together a list of some winter essential shoe styles that you need to own this winter. Check them out below and tell me what you think of the styles.

 

  1. The Black Heeled Knee-High

The black heeled knee-high is back on trendy and I am loving it. It has only come back into style in the past few years, after years of it being a no-go. Knee-high boots, when paired with the right outfit, can look chic and classy and can also help keep your calves warm.

Black knee-high boots are the most versatile. They can be dressed down with a pair of jeans. And dressed up for a night on the town with a skirt or dress. The choice really is yours!

 

  1. The Classic Chelsea Boot

Chelsea Boots are a great boot style to invest in throughout autumn and winter. They can pretty much be combined with any outfit. Chelsea Boots most commonly come in black and brown, both of which look amazing with black and blue jeans, or even a skirt and tights.

They often come with a small heel to give you an added bit of height, but it is also small enough for you to get away with it in the office or on longer walks.

The above Black Chelsea boots are ideal to wear with both jeans or dresses and skirts, as they are plain and design-free, plus they’re the perfect height on the ankle.

 

  1. The Black Heeled Boot

Take any outfit from day-to-night by simply swapping out your flats for a classic black heeled boot. Teamed with a fitted pair of jeans, they make the ideal smart-casual outfit..

Not only does it give you a little more height and give off the illusion that your legs are slimmer, but it will certainly add some style and chicness to whatever outfit you’re wearing.

 

  1. A Dark Trainer

While the statement white trainers are great for the warmer months, you need to think about how they could potentially get ruined from the wet mud that may get splatted onto them in winter. While they look nice to start with, white trainers are quick to get dirty.

Dark coloured trainers, such as black and navy, are great for disguising little spots of mud. This is why they’re a great addition to a winter wardrobe. I have a few in my shoe collection and they come in handy.

 

  1. The Biker Boot

Biker boots have become increasingly popular in stores over the past year, most designed with long studs and buckles. While they’re probably not best paired with delicate skirts and dresses, due to their chunkiness, they certainly look great with a big, thick jumper and jeans.
