Styling Skills

Stylists amaze me with their ability to concoct great outfits out of pieces I never would've considered buying, or might even think downright hideous. I see it happen at work every day, where our stylists, Sarah and Jessie, work magic by mixing contrasting prints, making granny sweaters look sexy, and turning formal frocks into daytime-acceptable attire. While I do believe some people are just born with this talent, I think that lookbooks are a great place to pick up a tip or two from a stellar stylist.

The latest lookbook from Tobi, one of my favorite etailers, has plenty of examples of so-so pieces made beautiful by clever styling. Bonus: Save 25 % off at Tobi with code "perfectgift" if you shop before midnight on NYE.
