Though it might still feel a little chilly out (what is the deal Chicago?!) we are going to keep promising summer is on the way until it comes true. So while we keep our fingers crossed, we are tapping the fashion best for tips and tricks for warm weather dressing. Thanks to clients like MTV and Chanel (yes, as in Coco), The Marendo Group out of Los Angeles has seen their fashion clients on stars like Britney Spears and 50 Cent. And now their expertise is our gain! We have PR and Social Media Directors Brittany Hagerty and Callina Patterson to help us out for styling during this in-between seasonal weather.
These two are a dynamic duo, with seriously great hair, who work on both the company’s fashion clients as well as brands like Pinkberry, Def Jam Records and Volkswagon. They’re rarely seen without each other and share a love of more forward fashion trends, but still have great advice for those of use who aren’t brave enough to rock pastel tresses or lots of sparkle. No matter your style, this will get your warm weather shopping list going…
IT MIGHT FINALLY BE GETTING WARMER! CAN WE PUT AWAY OUR SWEATERS AT LAST?
Brittany: Yes! Spring means warmer weather so try using more loose soft linens and chiffon tops to help keep you cool! […] If it gets cold at night buy some cute light weight sweaters and even a neon or pastel blazer!
HOW CAN WE INCORPORATE SPRING COLORS INTO OUR WARDROBES?
Callina: Black is my go-to color for sure. Spring is when it’s time to start incorporating little pops of color in my wardrobe. I have some fun kimonos I’ll throw on or just rock a bold lip to spice up my outfit.
Brittany: Even if you are scared of color and do prefer all black…try using pops of color in your accessories, makeup and even shoes!
AND WHAT SHOE STYLE SHOULD WE BE ROCKING FOR SPRING?
Brittany: Platform sneakers, open toe heeled sandals and wedges are a great way to keep your outfit stylish from head to toe but incorporate spring friendly pieces.
YOU BOTH TALK A LOT ABOUT ACCESSORIES. WHICH ARE YOUR FAVORITES?
Brittany: The best accessory for spring and summer is sunglasses! Whether you get a few designer frames and some from forever 21… Rock em!
Callina: Sunglasses are my FAVORITE accessory. It’s always fun to play around with different shapes and color shades.
THEN HOW CAN WE WEAR THESE STYLES TO THE OFFICE?
Callina: When it comes to office style, comfort is key for me. You can’t go wrong with a good romper or maxi dress. Staple comfort pieces can be played up with some fun jewelry and cute heels.
