For those of us making Pesach (Passover) we are finally in the home stretch and this means our homes are sparkling clean, our closets perfectly edited and organized and our children all lined up and behaving perfectly! Ok, the last one was a joke...two weeks off from school with nothing but parents' expectations of helpful children is not exactly a recipe for good behavior. But at least the 'clean' part is accurate, and in fashion, nothing says clean like the look of all white.

This is great to try over the holiday because it's spring (if only the weather would cooperate) and now is the time to try something fresh. Wear a beautiful white dress or even a soft white skirt with a crisp white blouse.  You can even mix white with off-white for an interesting tone on tone look.  Here are some nice picks to try...
Sweet Lace Dress by Free People $228
French Connection Glitter Dress $100

Lauren by Ralph Lauren Ruffle Blouse $79.50
Tulip Skirt $45

To dress up a plain white skirt and blouse and keep it from looking too stark, break it up with a contrasting statement necklace or belt.  I love metallics with white and you can literally transform a basic top and bottom into a fabulous outfit by accessorizing with them.  Here are some gorgeous belts to try...up the glam factor and show off a narrow waist with an extra wide belt. Try a skinny one for a more classic and reserved look.
Halston Metallic Double Sash Belt  $136.50,  Metal Pyramid Belt $29.99, Skinny Metallic Belt $11.86

Here's my rule with belts: Avoid wearing a chunky bracelet, it will compete with the belt (your hand hovers on the same horizontal line as the belt), but you CAN wear a necklace, just keep the scale balanced: Wear a statement necklace (like one of  the gorgeous ones below) with a skinny belt OR a dramatic belt with a delicate necklace. Not both!
Silver Waterfall Necklace $128,  Gold Floral Necklace $121.92,  Woven Multirow Gold Necklace $98,   Mod Metal Necklace by Kenneth Cole $135

And don't forget a fabulous pair of metallic, blush or nude shoes....actually, the less matchy matchy the better:
Vince Camuto Metallic Pumps in bronze and graphite $79.99,  Steve Madden Rose Gold Bow Flats $89.95,  Gap Open Toe Crochet Flats $49.95
For those of you who have no more time to shop, this look is easy to put together from items you may already have. Just go to your own perfectly cleaned and organized closet and pull out any and all of the white and metallic pieces you own and get creative! You'll be surprised at how many new outfits you can put together for no money at all.

p.s. I would love to see your fashion creations. Please email me pictures of your holiday (or any other) outfits to You may be featured in a future post!
