Pamela's Picks of the Day!

Celebrity Stylist Pamela Watson, proprietor of the fashion stylist holding company- Builders of Style, Inc., is our guest editor today who has so graciously agreed to help us girls stay 'chic' by contributing her "Spring/Summer Must Haves"!

See Pam's  Spring 2011 Ultimate 3 "Got 2 Haves" for both women and men below...

For women:
* COLORED / BRIGHT Bags are the new 'IT' 4 the summer. give your trusty black bag a rest this summer. See attached image of  this Balenciaga in Red-soft on the hardware, heavy on the color!

* MAXI DRESSES. Extra long, extra comfortable, extra versatile! Can be paired with flats, heels or my favorite… wedges customize the statement you wanna make (and the extra bonus is u can go rogue underneath and no one would be the wiser ;-)). The bolder the graphic  this season, the better but make sure to keep your solids close at hand as they will never go out of style. You can make the best of both worlds by wearing a bold colored solid and mixing it with a colorful sandal; that’s making the best use of your bank book; HELLO!  But if you have some cash to burn then I would have solids and graphic prints.

* WIDE LEGGED PANTS. Manstyle is always in vogue and this season with palettes ranging from soft butters to vibrants to classic blues this trend favorite tops my list! See designers from DSquared to J. Crew carrying wide legged pants this spring. It’s a nod to the 1940’s era of glamour mixed into modern times that take us “Superwomen” from the office to dinner…in opulent style!

For men:

* COLORED CHINOS. Before you frown at the thought just know they don't have to be rocked in bright bold colors if that's too over the top for you! For the more conservative wearer try a few soft transitions before you dive right in: like soft yellow instead of a regular khaki or a deep blue instead of a regular jean or olive instead of your fatigues. Mix it up and don't forget FIT! Nothing baggy and definitely NO PLEATS PLEASE!

*GRAY FACED WATCHES. are all the rage for that rugged guy who's not afraid of his metrosexual side. It will be the next classic timepiece for your watch repertoire and grab the attention of others for its uniqueness and give YOU a nod to being sexy enough to blaze this trend first!

*MEN CAN GO NUDE TOO! replace the traditional white shirt with a nude one. Yes, take that white shirt and hoist it on a flagpole! Surrender to the newest addition to the versatile shirt that will go with most anything: the khaki shirt! Wears well with a suit or casually. Pair them with a colored chino and your all ready for the we'll work on great footwear finds for the summer to accompany this 'nude' trend!

Love, Pam.

Look out for a new edition of Pamela's Picks next week!

  1. Love the idea of giving my black bag a rest and replacing with BOLD color. Maybe the BOLD bag will inspire me to be bold and talk out loud!!!!
