Welcome to our second season of STYLEDLIFE® and styledlook’s column “Isn’t Fashion Fun.” This bi-monthly column is written for the loyal readers of Lavender by the wardrobe experts™ team at styledlook®.
Remember, the styledlook team is ready to assist you with a free 30 minute wardrobe/style consultation at our STYLEDLIFE store in the Galleria. To schedule an appointment please call us at 612-746-5800. We are currently located across from Tiffany & Co. but, in early October our new Galleria flagship location debuts near Good Earth restaurant.
This month we will focus on the top four key wardrobe items we believe that women and men should have in their closet. These items are all easy to wear and will update an average look into a sophisticated and relaxed look.
For those of you who love fashion, celebrate your personal style and push the envelope this season. If you are feeling a bit more challenged, take a tip or two from what we have listed and give it a try… let us know what you discover!

Cardigan Sweater– Thin wool, three season, Italian weave knit styledtip: Push up the sleeves and accessorize your waist.
Elastic Belt– The waist is still an important area to focus upon. Stretch is the most versatile. styledtip: Try belting your cardigan.
Scarf– A great light weight, thin gauge fabric will add color to your basics. Perfect for indoor and outdoor use. styledtip: Use your scarf as a short sarong layered over pants.
Statement Earrings– Make your style statement with a bold earring. styledtip: Remember, bold earrings can be worn in the daytime too.
Hat– Think about wearing hat styles other than a baseball cap. styledtip: STYLEDLIFE has a great hat assortment from the fedora to the newsboy.
Wrist Statement– Add an accessory to your wrist as a final touch. This is a hot way to ramp up any look. styledtip: Wear a more casual style, such as a leather cuff, with a shirt and tie.
Indoor/Outdoor Scarf– A cashmere blend that is light enough to wear all day is a great choice.
Necklace– A simple everyday necklace looks very masculine when peeking out from an open shirt. styledtip: Leather boot laces tied around the neck are a quick do-it-yourself necklace/lariat.
