Fall Clothing Advice: What the Pros Say Part II

Yup, more today from those that give us hints, how-tos, tips and little nuggets of wisdom on choosing clothes. Pay attention and you can avoid not only things hanging in that closet that are never worn, but also wasted time when you are shopping (remember, time and energy is precocious, more so even that moolah).

From Tim Gunn as he wrote for Redbookmag,com: "If you have something loose and blousy on top, whatever you wear below should be sleek and well fitted to serve as a counterpoint, and vice versa."

From Beckie Klein and Martina Gordon, Re-stylists, in New York Family.com: "A dress is a great thing and a time-saver-something we all need. If you have a good dress, you don't have to think too much...throw it on with your boots. Put a belt with it or a cardigan. You can wear it solo or layer it and make it more interesting." (yup, full confession: I interviewed them for that piece). 

From Lauren Hutton, as told to Oprah.com: "Notice what people are complimenting you on. Experiment with new things once in a while, but have your tried-and-true pieces that work."

From Carson Kressely as told to Chatelaine.com: "Pare down your wardrobe. Our closets are overflowing, yet we say we have nothing to wear. Clear out everything you haven't worn in a year or two. Remember, things that don't fit-too big or too small-are just a buzz kill in the morning."

What do you have too much of? What is your personal style?

I don't think you can ever have too much of anything when it comes to fashion lol. My style is cute, comfy (Sometimes!) and sexy.

I used to get compliments every time I wore a certain shirt, finally I paid attention, and now I wear more pink.
