Holiday Party Looks by Style Type

What’s YOUR Style Type??

One of the questions I always used to ask clients…what is your style?
A surprising number of women can’t identify it.

Can you??

Are you classic, preferring clean lines and minimal details?
Maybe you love edge and would look right at home on the streets of New York City.
Perhaps you are super feminine and love all things girly, fit and flare dresses, ruffles, lace, sequins, pastels, etc.
Or like most women, you are probably a combination.

How Do You Want to Feel?

It’s important to think about your style type… and how you want to look and feel for each occasion before you choose your outfit.
Think about colors you want to wear, silhouettes that are most flattering to your body, and whether you want to feel elegant, sexy, fashion forward, bold, etc.

I wanted to show you some different style type options.. so I asked some friends here in Telluride for help.

Meet Cynthia | Edgy Style

Cynthia rocks a pixie cut like no other.
She’s a working mom of 2 kiddos… and my fitness role model!
For example, I recently took my first spin class, and rode for about 4 miles total.
I asked Cynthia what her average mileage is during a cycling class, and she said around 13 miles!

Her style (as you might have guessed) is edgy… a little bit rock and roll.

Fringe Top

The key to her holiday party outfit… is this really fun, fringe, silver top by Rachel Zoe.
This look is ALL about the top, so you should keep the rest of the look pretty neutral…
Which Cynthia did with dark wash skinny jeans, and black ankle strap sandals.

This is the perfect effortless and edgy combo for New Year’s Eve.
Add a black blazer, faux fur or moto jacket for warmth.

Here is a link to the exact top at Two Skirts.

Meet Kim | The Risk Taker

Kim is also a beautiful, busy, working mom here in Telluride. She always has a smile on her face, and seems to be genuinely full of joy.
Kim’s style is fashion forward and functional. Every time I walk in the store, Kim has layered clothes and mixed prints in unexpected ways.
But, she is always able to juggle work and mom life in her looks.
(Well, maybe not so much in these Louboutins above 😉

Black Jumpsuit

Many women do not have the courage to rock a jumpsuit, let alone one with peek-a-boo lace detailing…
But, Kim sure does…and she looks amazing in this Self-Portrait piece!
I always say…if you want to dress differently than everyone else at the party, wear a jumpsuit.

You can find the exact jumpsuit at Two Skirts here.

Meet Kristin | Ladylike & Feminine

Kristin is the stunning, co-owner of Two Skirts. She runs the business and wears MANY hats, including buying for the store.
When I want to know which designers to watch out for, I ask Kristin.
I also love picking her brain about best sellers…for example…which jeans are all her clients scooping up.

She’s also the mother of two boys!  Not sure how she juggles it all.

Sparkle Dress

Kristin’s style is clearly VERY feminine and ladylike. She LOVES fit-and-flare dresses for special occasions.
She has great legs and a tiny waist so this sequin, Self-Portrait dress looks like it was made for her.

Bring on the Drama

I’ve always described my own style as edgy elegance. I like to wear modern, elegant pieces with some edge or drama.
A bold, red jumpsuit will definitely turn heads, and standout in a sea of black dresses!

Red Jumpsuit

I saw this exact jumpsuit on another, more curvy woman and I think it looked even better on her…so do not shy away from this piece if you are curvy.
Remember how I said, Kristin was always introducing me to new designers? This jumpsuit is one example.
It’s by Mestiza, a glam brand created by two Midwestern designers.

Here is a link to this exact Mestiza jumpsuit. I’m wearing size 4.
And here is a link to the layered necklace with magnetic closure.
