This post is sponsored by Macy’s. Here are the fashions lessons I learned from stylist Clinton Kelly when he stopped by Macy’s Lenox Square Mall for a Girls Night Out Event. I knew Clinton from his time as a co-host on TLC’s What Not to Wear and a few appearances on morning news shows. But seeing him in real life is an incredible experience. He’s brutally honest and picks people out of the audience for a fashion critique. Thankfully, I wasn’t picked because my style needs some work.
Fashion Lessons from Clinton
Red lipstick is not for everyone. He’s really specific about this and I wholeheartedly agree. I only wear it with a little brown lip liner to tone it down a bit. An Estee Lauder makeup artist at the event recommended selecting red lipstick based on the color of your teeth. Sounds weird, huh? Stop by the Estee Lauder counter at Macy’s for help picking the perfect red lipstick.
If you wear layers, make sure your waistline is accentuated. Otherwise, you’ll look a little bulky. I’m guilty of this too since it’s cold.
Purge your closet. If you haven’t worn a piece of clothing in months, ditch it. Stop thinking you’re going to lose weight and squeeze into those size 2 jeans you wore in college. Let it go and let the jeans go.
Fall Fashion Trends
The models in the Girls Night Out event were amazing. They represented all shapes and sizes. The wore the latest fashion trends like worn denim. My favorite theme was the holiday dresses.
