How to Layer for the Holidays

The Holidays are all about drama, yes. But does that mean women need to run out and invest in a new wardrobe? Good Day Chicago’s style expert Amy Tara Koch says NO WAY! You can create a big style statement by mixing and matching what you already own (or filling in your accessory blanks with some new holiday baubles). Translation? Toss the matchy-matchy mindset and pair your accessories in unconventional ways to create texture, add contrast and introduce color.

 

LAYERING TIPS

    1. Mix vintage + new
    2. Pair opposites for high drama
    3. High/low is a recipe for high style. Think: H&M and Hermes!

    FOXY AT FOX

    I had the pleasure of dropping in to work with the gorgeous Heather Nauert of GOOD DAY NEW YORK. Heather, who is 8 months pregnant with #2, loved the tips and tricks on how to bump up basics with layering pieces and statement making accessories. We featured best bets from Heidi Klum’s new collection for Destination Maternity, boots by Charlotte Russe, jewelry by Kara Ross and Henry Beguelin, DKNY knits and thin gold belts from H&M.

    FOX-Y IN THE FAMILY WAY

    I was so excited when FOX NEWS invited me to appear in four segments about pregnancy style last week with the fabulous and most pregnant host COURTNEY FRIEL. THE STRATEGY ROOM was a live chat fest with HEALTH’s Frances Largeman Roth, THE BUMP’s Carla Roney and premier neonatologist Dr. Joanne Stone. The next day, I got to prove my maternity mettle with three models that I had never met. When Ruah, Neha and Mary turned up at 9:30 am to be styled,  my mouth dropped. These chicks-Ruah Bhay, Neha Arora, Mary Wassner (who was due the next day!)  looked like they came from FORD’s FERTILITY division!  The entire Green Room was transfixed as these soon-to-be moms morphed (with a little help from me and my accessories) into runway ready vixens.

    The fashion pieces will appear on FOX EXTRA which airs on Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network abroad.  The segments will also be sent to 100+ Fox Affiliates, for their own use, and possibly be posted to foxnewshealth.com. I’ll keep you posted!
