Outfit #1

Amanda,

I completely understand how overwhelming it can feel to have so many pieces of clothing that it’s actually difficult to find an outfit. To help you get a hold of your closet, I have pulled together three outfit options that are versatile and utilize many timeless pieces. Because all these pieces are so timeless, you can feel comfortable knowing that you will always get good use of them. I believe that any of these pieces could easily be worked into your go-to weekend look!

In your questionnaire, you mentioned you have long, lean legs. The bottoms I picked will show off your long legs each in different ways. You also mentioned that you like to combine designers and looks to create a style of your own which can translate to your every day wear. I tried to keep that in mind with each of these outfits creating a style that has a hint of attitude and trendiness. Keeping in mind how you described your social life and free time I tried to make each outfit work from day to night. You can easily go shopping around town, meet up with friends for brunch or simply run errands in any of these options.

I hope you enjoy your three outfit options!

Lots of Lime,


Charley


The main part of this outfit is the boyfriend jean. The boyfriend jean will be a great addition to your spring and summer wardrobe as it is a top trend and is extremely versatile.

In this outfit, I paired the boyfriend jean with a drape cardigan, but if you prefer, you can also pair it with a jacket, oversized tee or button front shirt. What I love about the updated drape cardigan is that you can wear it lose for a more casual feel, or tie it up with a belt to accentuate your waistline. For this outfit, I paired it with a belt because you mentioned that you love showing off your figure.

This sandal will work well with the look as the metal detailing adds a hint of fun and dresses the outfit up a bit, while the flat heel allows you to actually be comfortable while running around town. Additionally, as these sandals can be worn to work or out at night, I know you will get a ton of use out of them!

Finally, I added some great accessories. This Marc by Marc Jacobs bag rounds out the look as it works well with the color of the shoe and belt and is large enough to hold all your belongings for the day. The fun and brightly colored disk necklace from Old Navy is only $4.99 but adds a ton to this outfit!

Amanda Outfit #2

Every girl needs a fabulous jacket in her wardrobe. A great all-purpose coat can give style to any outfit and this jacket is a perfect pick with its chocolate tones. Additionally, I choose this jacket not only because of the color, but also because the knit bottom makes it seasonless. This is a great investment piece!

In your questionnaire, you mentioned that you really want a great pair of jeans. Since you have long legs, a jean that is bootcut and dark colored will be best for your figure. With that said, these bootcut ink-colored J Brand jeans are going to be your new obsession as they will definitely flatter your shape.

The saddle color peep toe pumps complement the deep hues of the plaid shirt and ink denim nicely. Finally, by adding in the green handbag and a teal colored ring, this outfit really brightens up and will make you stand-out in any crowd.

Amanda Outfit #3

There is nothing more perfect for late spring then jean shorts and a blazer for nights! It keeps you warm enough to stand the nightly breeze yet lets you remember that summer is almost here! Also, these pieces have an added bonus as the jacket and tee can be worn all year. They can be worn with trousers or jeans for a more formal look or shorts for a more casual feel.

This cool, chic look is topped off with plastic sunglasses (a must for summer), and gladiator sandals that are updated for the season with metal detail. Since you have long lean limbs, you are free to wear pretty much any flat--and these are definitely a hot trend for the season.

The necklace might be a bit pricey but I wanted to show you how great a necklace like this can look with such a simple outfit like this. The chain and metal detail speaks directly to the seasons trends and the bold color makes it the perfect accessory for summer wear.

This outfit is so versatile because the pieces can truly can be worn in 50 different ways in a variety of temperatures and social settings.

Audrey

Outfit #1

Audrey,

Congratulations on graduating law school and finding a new job! I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with you on finding figure flattering and budget-friendly pieces for your new work wardrobe.

While searching for outfits, I kept in mind that you were on a tighter budget and really wanted staple items that you could build your wardrobe around. Additionally, as a young professional, you asked for items that are conservative but not too stiff.

Below please find the three looks that I put together for you. Wear them proud at your new job!

Lots of Lime,


Morgan


When dressing for work, you want to make things as simple as possible so you are able to savor the time you have in the morning. Therefore, having those staple pieces you requested is absolutely essential when you are entering the work world!

In order to maximize your time in the morning, I decided to base your first look around this Banana Republic pleated v-neck dress. The pleats around the waist offer a flattering shape to the dress and will hide your tummy, which you had mentioned to me was your trouble spot. The length of the dress, plunge of the v-neck, and coverage of the dolman sleeve are all work appropriate without being too conservative. At $99.99, this may seem a bit expensive for a dress, but this is a piece that is worth the investment. It will not only flatter your shape, but can be worn a million different ways and is also easily transitional into other seasons. During the winter, pair it with a cardigan. In the summer, wear it alone. It's definitely that great staple piece you asked for.

I decided to amp up the earth brown tone of the dress by adding a spring color flat. This Hurache inspired Sam Edelman "Ianna" flat is a great affordable shoe. Not only is it trendy, it's also incredibly versatile. Pair it with khakis and you have another great summer look. The small slits also make it super breathable and comfortable--what else could a girl ask for?

Lastly, I added a chic necklace from New York & Company for $19.95 and a simple leather satchel from JCrew. The satchel, while a bit pricey, is a great staple piece as it's very versatile and timeless. It adds a nice touch to this simple yet classy look that can take you from the office to a night on the town!

Audrey Outfit #2

This outfit is all about being classy and sophisticated! I chose a simple tailored black suit for you that is an investment piece every new professional woman should have. The pants are under $100 and the jacket is under $200. It may seem like a lot to lay out for a suit all at once, but these prices are affordable in comparison to some other high end stores, and these Banana Republic items are just as well made as other more expensive brands.

With that said, I decided to add a trend inspired blouse in a bright color that will make this outfit pop. I chose this ECI ruffled halter top because the high neck offers full coverage for work, the color is fun and exciting and is certainly a color someone your age can pull off. Additionally, this blouse has cascading ruffles which not only are super fashionable, they also allow this piece to effortlessly take you from day to night in one swoop (just remove the blazer).

I added a Nine West croc embossed slingback peep toe heel with this suit to lend height and give you that extra boost of confidence every woman gets from a pump. Lastly, with a blouse like the ECI ruffled one, all you need is a simple earring and you are set to go, so I gave you a faux pearl stud from Forever21 for only $2.80!

Audrey Outfit #3

When Friday rolls around, you want to be casually chic for work, especially if you are allowed to dress down a bit at your job. But, when it comes to casual Fridays, a lot of corporate companies still don't allow denim jeans. With that in mind, I'm putting you in a comfortable and casual pair of chinos from J Crew. These pants are easy to wear throughout the day and will take you into your summer weekend as well. The best part--they're on sale for $19.99!

Since you don't want to look overly casual at the office, I paired this Calvin Klein flutter sleeve print blouse with your khakis. It adds some flare to the ensemble while also flattering your figure, since the smocking adds detail to the blouse but also gathers the fabric just enough so that it falls perfectly to help mask your tummy!

Since you want some more coverage at the office (and because you just cant never go wrong with a cardigan), I paired this flutter sleeve cardigan from Express to go over the blouse. The cobalt blue will flatter the print of the blouse nicely.

Lastly, I finished this look with a casual mid heel wedge in a natural snakeskin. These shoes can be worn with everything from your shorts to your suits, and are affordable at just $105.

Keep in mind that this look is defined by its blend of simple staple pieces with the bold blouse, and thus does not need any accessories. However, should you prefer to add earrings or a necklace, be sure to keep it simple so as to not take away from the gorgeous pattern of this blouse.

Outfit #1

Becky,

Thank you for choosing to work with the Little Lime Stylists! Based on the information you provided to me through our Little Lime Dress Questionnaire, I have found three fantastic outfit options for you to wear to your friend's upcoming beach wedding.

As you asked for something fun yet casual, each outfit has at least one "special" piece that will make you stand out from the crowd without being over the top. With your features, a wide range of colors will look great on you, including bright bold shades as well as muted ones. In my selection of outfits for you, I did a mix so you can see how to create your own outfits using color.

I hope you enjoy my suggestions and also find my style tips useful.

Lots of Lime,


Madison


Keeping in mind your height, chest size and silhouette, I chose this outfit for you as it will make you look super tall and slim while also offering comfort throughout the wedding party.

The a-line skirt has a gentle flare and will make your waist look tiny. Since you mentioned you love showing off your small waist, I thought this was a fantastic option for you. Additionally, it's a lightweight cotton/linen blend that will be perfect for a wedding at the beach.

The ruffle top is a great match with the skirt. With it's small stripes, back keyhole and waist tie, it's fresh and classy without being too typical.

To elongate your limbs, I picked this neutral colored high heel which will help to extend the look of your legs. Additionally, these platform espadrilles will be more comfortable than stilettos, allowing you to dance your way through the reception.

Lastly, I paired this outfit with fun accessories since the outfit itself is more subdued. Large cocktail rings are a top trend right now and it adds a touch of flair without being too much. The flower design also creates a very feminine look, which you said was a style you liked.

Becky Outfit #2

This outfit is going to make a WOW statement! It is a great example of how to utilize bold colors and patterns in a head to toe outfit.

I chose this brightly colored dress for you as it will brighten your brown hair and light skin, making you radiate. Additionally, the length of this dress is perfect for your figure as it cuts above the knee and will help to lengthen your entire body.

Since the dress has no pattern, I wanted to find you a patterned pair of shoes. Nothing is more sexy this summer than python print! Also, the python print is pretty neutral in color so it will help to make your legs look long.

Adding a brightly colored clutch with some pretty (but classic) jewelry seals the deal. Notice that this outfit works because again, the dress if fairly simple in style.

The great thing about this option is that all of the accessories (necklace, bracelet and purse) are very versatile and will be great staple additions to your wardrobe. The necklace would be great with your work wear while the purse would be fantastic for any night out on the town.

Becky Outfit #3

This last outfit is very feminine, which you mentioned is one of your favorite looks. And, since gold tones are very fashionable this summer, I thought this would be a great look for the wedding.

I again selected a dress that would show off your hourglass figure. As you can see, the bottom of this dress flares out from a cinched waist, which is perfect for your body. Additionally, the v-neck chest line will give just the right amount of cleavage to get noticed without looking like your trying too hard.

The sandals I selected are light and airy to enhance your legs. Given their style, they will add length to you rather than make you appear shorter, as some thicker-strapped sandals can. Due to the intricate lace design on the neckline of the dress, I avoided adding in too many other textures and prints by keeping the shoe and clutch similar in color and style.

Lastly, I added the cuff and earrings as it adds the perfect amount of luxury to this outfit. The butterfly detailing also lends to the femininity of the look

Outfit #1

Regina,

Congratulations on recently having a baby! I appreciate you coming to the Little Lime Stylists for help with adding some fashionable pieces to your already existing wardrobe.

In the questionnaire, you mentioned that you love looks that are classic and timeless but that you wanted to find ways to cover your midriff and arms. When searching for your outfits, I looked for just such items. I also kept in mind your budget as well as your weekly schedule.

Below please find the three looks that I pulled together which will certainly fit your body type and lifestyle. Wear these looks proudly; they will make you effortlessly chic!

Lots of Lime,


Kyle


In your questionnaire, you said that you and your husband love going out for nice dinners once a week. You also mentioned that you two attend several charity events each year. Given this, I chose this Rachel Pally dress for you because not only is Rachel Pally a fantastic designer for plus women, but her looks are classic & timeless -- perfect for a romantic dinner or a night out for drinks.

The modal/spandex fabric in this piece is a very flattering material. The empire waist aids to hide your midriff, which you said was one of your problem areas given you recently had a baby. Since you also mentioned you typically do not like to show your arms, I chose this dress as the sleeves are stylish but also offering full coverage. While this dress is a bit pricey, but I think it is a worthwhile investment piece that can be simply mixed and matched into a great outfit.

In your questionnaire, you also mentioned your love for shoes so I paired these with a fierce pair of nude patent leather platform pumps from Steve Madden. I chose the nude color because it will help to elongate your leg, while a platform shoe also offers comfort that a stilettos doesn't.

Lastly, I paired this dress with a great pair of statement earrings and a simple fold over clutch (just large enough to fit all your items).

Regina Outfit #2

This second look was created with your busy weekends in mind. You mentioned that a large part of your weekends are spent running around with the kids, so this outfit is comfortable yet chic.

The bottoms are a pair of classic Ralph Lauren shorts in navy blue. These are great for your figure as they are a bit longer but not so much that you feel completely covered. Additionally, navy blue is a great spring and summer color as it's refreshing compared to simple black.

I paired these shorts with a patterned ruffled tank from Lane Bryant. This tank is great because the ruffles add a bit of fun while the tank itself can be worn throughout the seasons by layering it with a heavier cardigan in the colder months.

For spring and summer, I'm pairing this tank with a lightweight ruffled cardigan since you said you don't like to show off your arms. This cardigan is a great staple piece to add to your wardrobe as it is extremely versatile. The ruffle front is also an unexpected twist on this classic piece. Pair these items together with a fringe sandal in a neutral tone and your are chic and ready for the weekend!

As a mother and a full-time teacher, you said you don't have a lot of time to get ready in the morning. I pulled together this simple ensemble which is perfect for a day at work or a casual brunch with the girls.

The dark denim trouser jean is from Lane Bryant and is a great staple piece that comes in a petite length to suit your frame. The Bordeaux Beaded Chiffon Top is a gorgeous spring piece and can be worn with everything from your casual shorts to your dress pants and skirts. Additionally, the blouse is very flattering for your frame and will really make a statement!

I'm putting this outfit with a pair of Tory Burch flats as it is not only a great investment shoe, but a chic espadrille flat is perfect for spring and summer. It is also great for a casual look during the day or a trendy look for a night out.

Finally, given the top is the real statement piece of this look, I'm adding just a simple pair of silver hoops to complete the look.

I completely understand how overwhelming it can feel to have so many pieces of clothing that it’s actually difficult to find an outfit. To help you get a hold of your closet, I have pulled together three outfit options that are versatile and utilize many timeless pieces. Because all these pieces are so timeless, you can feel comfortable knowing that you will always get good use of them. I believe that any of these pieces could easily be worked into your go-to weekend look!

In your questionnaire, you mentioned you have long, lean legs. The bottoms I picked will show off your long legs each in different ways. You also mentioned that you like to combine designers and looks to create a style of your own which can translate to your every day wear. I tried to keep that in mind with each of these outfits creating a style that has a hint of attitude and trendiness. Keeping in mind how you described your social life and free time I tried to make each outfit work from day to night. You can easily go shopping around town, meet up with friends for brunch or simply run errands in any of these options.

I hope you enjoy your three outfit options!

Finally, I added some great accessories. This Marc by Marc Jacobs bag rounds out the look as it works well with the color of the shoe and belt and is large enough to hold all your belongings for the day.

When Friday rolls around, you want to be casually chic for work, especially if you are allowed to dress down a bit at your job. But, when it comes to casual Fridays, a lot of corporate companies still don't allow denim jeans. With that in mind, I'm putting you in a comfortable and casual pair of chinos from J Crew. These pants are easy to wear throughout the day and will take you into your summer weekend as well. The best part--they're on sale for $19.99!

It adds some flare to the ensemble while also flattering your figure, since the smocking adds detail to the blouse but also gathers the fabric just enough so that it falls perfectly to help mask your tummy!

Since you want some more coverage at the office (and because you just cant never go wrong with a cardigan), I paired this flutter sleeve cardigan from Express to go over the blouse. The cobalt blue will flatter the print of the blouse nicely.

Lastly, I finished this look with a casual mid heel wedge in a natural snakeskin. These shoes can be worn with everything from your shorts to your suits, and are affordable at just $105.

Keep in mind that this look is defined by its blend of simple staple pieces with the bold blouse, and thus does not need any accessories. However, should you prefer to add earrings or a necklace, be sure to keep it simple so as to not take away from the gorgeous pattern of this blouse.

Becky Outfit #2

This outfit is going to make a WOW statement! It is a great example of how to utilize bold colors and patterns in a head to toe outfit.

I chose this brightly colored dress for you as it will brighten your brown hair and light skin, making you radiate. Additionally, the length of this dress is perfect for your figure as it cuts above the knee and will help to lengthen your entire body.

Since the dress has no pattern, I wanted to find you a patterned pair of shoes. Nothing is more sexy this summer than python print! Also, the python print is pretty neutral in color so it will help to make your legs look long.

Adding a brightly colored clutch with some pretty (but classic) jewelry seals the deal. Notice that this outfit works because again, the dress if fairly simple in style.

The great thing about this option is that all of the accessories (necklace, bracelet and purse) are very versatile and will be great staple additions to your wardrobe. The necklace would be great with your work wear while the purse would be fantastic for any night out on the town.

Becky Outfit #3

This last outfit is very feminine, which you mentioned is one of your favorite looks. And, since gold tones are very fashionable this summer, I thought this would be a great look for the wedding.

I again selected a dress that would show off your hourglass figure. As you can see, the bottom of this dress flares out from a cinched waist, which is perfect for your body. Additionally, the v-neck chest line will give just the right amount of cleavage to get noticed without looking like your trying too hard.

The sandals I selected are light and airy to enhance your legs. Given their style, they will add length to you rather than make you appear shorter, as some thicker-strapped sandals can. Due to the intricate lace design on the neckline of the dress, I avoided adding in too many other textures and prints by keeping the shoe and clutch similar in color and style.

Lastly, I added the cuff and earrings as it adds the perfect amount of luxury to this outfit. The butterfly detailing also lends to the femininity of the look

Regina

Outfit #1

Regina,

Congratulations on recently having a baby! I appreciate you coming to the Little Lime Stylists for help with adding some fashionable pieces to your already existing wardrobe.

In the questionnaire, you mentioned that you love looks that are classic and timeless but that you wanted to find ways to cover your midriff and arms. When searching for your outfits, I looked for just such items. I also kept in mind your budget as well as your weekly schedule.

Below please find the three looks that I pulled together which will certainly fit your body type and lifestyle. Wear these looks proudly; they will make you effortlessly chic!

Lots of Lime,


Kyle


In your questionnaire, you said that you and your husband love going out for nice dinners once a week. You also mentioned that you two attend several charity events each year. Given this, I chose this Rachel Pally dress for you because not only is Rachel Pally a fantastic designer for plus women, but her looks are classic & timeless -- perfect for a romantic dinner or a night out for drinks.

The modal/spandex fabric in this piece is a very flattering material. The empire waist aids to hide your midriff, which you said was one of your problem areas given you recently had a baby. Since you also mentioned you typically do not like to show your arms, I chose this dress as the sleeves are stylish but also offering full coverage. While this dress is a bit pricey, but I think it is a worthwhile investment piece that can be simply mixed and matched into a great outfit.

In your questionnaire, you also mentioned your love for shoes so I paired these with a fierce pair of nude patent leather platform pumps from Steve Madden. I chose the nude color because it will help to elongate your leg, while a platform shoe also offers comfort that a stilettos doesn't.

Lastly, I paired this dress with a great pair of statement earrings and a simple fold over clutch (just large enough to fit all your items).

Regina Outfit #2

This second look was created with your busy weekends in mind. You mentioned that a large part of your weekends are spent running around with the kids, so this outfit is comfortable yet chic.

The bottoms are a pair of classic Ralph Lauren shorts in navy blue. These are great for your figure as they are a bit longer but not so much that you feel completely covered. Additionally, navy blue is a great spring and summer color as it's refreshing compared to simple black.

I paired these shorts with a patterned ruffled tank from Lane Bryant. This tank is great because the ruffles add a bit of fun while the tank itself can be worn throughout the seasons by layering it with a heavier cardigan in the colder months.

For spring and summer, I'm pairing this tank with a lightweight ruffled cardigan since you said you don't like to show off your arms. This cardigan is a great staple piece to add to your wardrobe as it is extremely versatile. The ruffle front is also an unexpected twist on this classic piece. Pair these items together with a fringe sandal in a neutral tone and your are chic and ready for the weekend!

Regina Outfit #3

As a mother and a full-time teacher, you said you don't have a lot of time to get ready in the morning. I pulled together this simple ensemble which is perfect for a day at work or a casual brunch with the girls.

The dark denim trouser jean is from Lane Bryant and is a great staple piece that comes in a petite length to suit your frame. The Bordeaux Beaded Chiffon Top is a gorgeous spring piece and can be worn with everything from your casual shorts to your dress pants and skirts. Additionally, the blouse is very flattering for your frame and will really make a statement!

I'm putting this outfit with a pair of Tory Burch flats as it is not only a great investment shoe, but a chic espadrille flat is perfect for spring and summer. It is also great for a casual look during the day or a trendy look for a night out.

Finally, given the top is the real statement piece of this look, I'm adding just a simple pair of silver hoops to complete the look.
