Stylist Tip: The Power of PH15 

Having at least three "go-to" party dresses in your wardrobe is a great style goal to have. Make sure you revolve them so as you let one go (consign or donate), your selections stay relevant!
Above, all three models are wearing PH15 Collection, showing the relevance for a variety of body shapes and women's ages. Shop the collection now.

It's All About the Dress

If there is one dress that everyone around town seems to be buzzing about from TSALT, it's this iconic shift from Alice & Olivia. When it's all about the dress, just finish the look with something you love...like these turquoise ear jackets from Eddera. One can never go wrong with a little turquoise!

Statement Earring

We like the statement earring to finish the look here. Keeping the focus on the dress - especially when the color is a statement in itself, is a great way to underplay your style. Adding a fun lip or nail color will keep the entire silhouette fresh!

Understated Earring

 

Keeping in line with the style of a dress, this olive leaf ear crawler from Eddera plays on the Grecian style of this column dress. With Jane's short hair, a dangle would also work nicely but I love the subtle touches that are often overlooked. Small earrings draw people in -  this earring is a great juxtaposition that will work everyday as well.

The Power Jacket

I love jackets! They have a power of making the most casual look very put together. This stunning brocade coat from Save The Queen will dazzle during the holidays (see above) but will also up your style game for Book Club! Just throw on over your black denim and a t-shirt!

When Anything Goes

Another fan favorite from TSALT's extensive dress selection is this ruffle silk mini from FRAME. It was definitely an earring finish, and these bronze hoop earrings were a nice choice for the price alone. If you are going to spend a lot on the dress, look for a moderately priced earring! These are $48 and will work with nearly anything!

OM

OMMMM....Tamara has been blowing up Instagram with this image! Not only powerful, but what a breath of fresh air! She's stunning in this jumpsuit and playing the Om beaded clutch just makes us love this entire look even more!
