Thursday's Tip :: Tone on Tone

Try mixing it up in your wardrobe without having to shop :: The tone-on-tone look. Pair some of your similarly-toned pieces together. Tone on tone can be done with a shirt and a necklace, cardigan & shirt, etc. Simply choose a piece in your closet that you like the color of, and then choose an accessory that has the same tone, yet not in the exact same shade. {i.e., a turquoise sweater with a pale turquoise/mint necklace, or a pale purple blouse with a plum blazer}

Courtney did this with the Pantone Color of 2014, Radiant Orchid. Styling an orchid dress with a darker-toned cardigan is one way of rocking the tone on tone look ::

2014 Color of the Year :: Radiant Orchid

Yes, I know it's February... but it doesn't make it too late to discuss the 2014 Pantone Color of the Year! Announced at the beginning of January, it is... drum roll... Radiant Orchid! I am loving this color, which I describe as a lovely sunny mix between fuchsia & lavender. It is flattering on virtually any skin tone and is sure to brighten up any blustery day. AND, I'm not only loving the fashion aspect of it -- I'm inspired to put pops of radiant orchid in my home, on my nails and in my makeup palette!

Here's some of my favorite radiant orchid inspiration; from pants, to pumps, to polish ::

RADIANT ORCHID

I think this color is going to be perfect for spring, and you can bet it will be making more features on the blog in the upcoming spring months! We'd love to hear from you - share your favorite radiant orchid looks with us!

Use the hashtag #radiantorchid & tag @lifestyledatlanta on Instagram and show us how you're wearing it or incorporating it into your home.

XOXO,

Menswear Monday

Happy Monday to you! Today's Menswear Monday features my new favorite casual pant for men. I've always been a fan of camel; whether it's pants, shoes or accessories. This color is so versatile, and can be paired with virtually anything; both black & brown, navy, and any color under the sun. When I saw this garment-dyed denim at J.Crew, it was love at first sight! Of course I persuaded my hubby to buy a pair and he has grown to love them as well.

I also love the fit of this jean. Women - if you shop for your husband or significant other at JCrew, make sure you have them try on the "770" fit in denim. This is a slimfit pant that is really flattering on many different body types. Most men wear their pants too large, and they end up looking baggy and saggy after a few wears. Don't be afraid to go slimmer! It creates a more figure-flattering, slick and put-together look. Trust me, you are doing your man yourself a favor!

Here are a few top pairings with these pants ::

We hope you enjoyed Menswear Monday. {Yes, this will be a regular Monday thing!} We're always open to your suggestions and comments, so please leave your feedback below.

Stay Stylish!
