Here are a few fashion tips to create a sizzle this holiday weekend.

Have a happy 4th of July,
Welcome to the first installment of 12 Beauty and Fashion Essentials for 2008. In this ongoing series, you will discover your own personal style for 2008 and bling in the new year with confidence and a twist of sass.
While you are shopping the after-Christmas sales look for colorful accessories that add something exciting to your existing wardrobe. By adding a pop of color in your choice to this Diane vonFurstenberg black dress defines your style personality. It is what I call classic with a twist. (As an aside, I love Diane's designs. They work for skinny minnies like me and weight-challenged women, too.),
Choosing either shoes like the BCB Girls pink sandal , the Imooi punch necklace from 2Modern, or the Bergdorf Goodman Carlos Falchi fuchsia matte croc clutch adds the needed punch of color to this wardrobe staple.
This delightful Tory Burch tangerine ballerina flat is all the color that is required to jazz up the otherwise routine everyday straight leg jeans.
Rings, earrings, hats, and glasses in bright colors are also a perfect accent to an otherwise clean black slate, BUT don't go color crazy and make others hyperventilate when you walk into the room. One or two small pieces or one large piece in a bright color is all you need. Once you've incorporated color in small amounts, you can try adding accent pieces like jackets and sweaters.
Have a little fun with color in 2008 and define your own style and spirit. It may be all you need to fend off the winter blues.
