Style Spy: Your 2019 Style Resolutions
Get out of a fashion rut with these simple and fun solutions.
SHADES OF GRAY
If you always find yourself reaching for black, why not opt for the color gray? It’s just as timeless but slightly less severe against your sun-deprived January complexion.
Debut cardigan, $58, Olive and Oak heather choker top, $78, Articles of Society grey jeans, $75, Labradorite/sterling pendant necklace, $178 and Labradorite/Sterling Earrings, $39 at Bloom, 165 E. Main St., Newark, 454-7266; 1725 Delaware Ave., Wilmington, 510-4990.
A girl can never have too many lipsticks or lip glosses, am I right? A high-shine gloss is great, but the latest trend in lip color is matte, which has a velvety finish and excellent lasting power (no more reapplying every 30 minutes).
bareMinerals Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipstick, $19 at Houppette, 4021D Kennett Pike, Greenville, 421-9036.
PLAY WITH PATTERN
There’s no need to give up your favorite little black dress, but why not jazz it up with something feisty, like a leopard print cardigan?
Animal Print Cardigan with elbow patches, $38 (Blenders eyewear, $45 and bodycon little black dress, $24) at First & Little Boutique, 25 W. Main St., Middletown, 562-8976.
BRUSH UP ON BLUSH
Contouring was a major trend in 2017 and 2018, and while it’s not going away, adding a blush can bring you up to date and on trend for 2019. Find a hue that pulls out your natural skin tone and brush just a bit on the apples of the cheek. You can do this after you contour if you want to keep your sculpted look.
Kevyn Aucoin Neo Blush, $38 at Houppette, Greenville.
THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX
With your accessories, that is. One square scarf can be draped, knotted or wrapped and can transform an outfit in seconds.
Johnny Was Silk Scarf (multiple styles available), $98 at Aquamarine Boutique, Lewes, 114 Second St., 644-4550.
