Dressing to Style

Today I’m sharing some of my favorite resources for dressing to style.  Some are articles, others are blogs, but all of them are worth taking a look over.

Fashion in Infographics

Updated daily, Fashion in Infographics is a grab bag of different fashion-related infographics.  Great to scroll through when you have five extra minutes!

Infographic (n): a visual image such as a chart or diagram used to represent information or data.

Bloggers in LOFT Pinterest Board

LOFT has its own Pinterest account that mostly features pins directly from its website.  The Bloggers in LOFT board shows you how real people — albeit fashion bloggers — are styling the pieces you love.

Learn the Basics of Color Theory

This article on Lifehacker is a bit of a long read, but gives a lot of great information about dealing with color.  Beyond what colors go well together, it explains tones, tints, hues, and shades.  All of this is valuable as we’re moving into fall with a majorly muted color palette.

 Browse Other Stores

Even as a LOFT associate, I spend time looking at our competitors’ websites.  Beyond getting a look at what my company is up against, this also gives me the chance to see how other stores with slightly different profiles are styling clothes.  It’s a great way to mix up styling, since LOFT (and truly, every store) has a very specific way it likes to style women.  Generally, I browse each store’s lookbook — LOFT has one called the “Monthly Edit“, but J. Crew, Banana Republic, Express and Topshop all have them too.  Innovation abound!
