Ask The Stylist: ROUGE

Alright gang. We all know it and see it and its RED. We're talking red as in cherry red, poppy red, lava red, candy apple red, and all of the other billion types of red out there. The trend is back and its hitting us with its brightest shade yet. So here it is, but what do we do with it? Sometimes wearing red can go all wrong, but if you know how to rock it, you're going to stand out in the crowd with confidence.

Since wearing bright red shades can be a bit of a toughey, when you're deciding to wear a piece that's red, be it: a shirt, a skirt, or a pair of shorts or pants, you need to recognize that its this red item that is the star of your outfit. In working with red, keeping things simple is the best way to go. Black, white, and tan always does the trick, along with other neutral colours that don't disrupt the brightness that is already part of your outfit. However, if you feel like walking on the wild side - don't be afraid to match your look with other bright summery colours. Warm tones like yellows and oranges go well, even a royal blue would be a nice addition.

Accessories that help to compliment bright red shades include jewelry of all types; but especially look good in gold, silver, and bronze. What you don't want to do though is overdress your outfit with too many accessories, but instead balance it with items that will make it look popping and yet, complete. For example, when wearing a red mini skirt, a nice way to complete the look would be with a white blouse, a pair of black pumps, and some frilly earrings and bangles that will give you that extra feminine touch (let's not forget to get those nails done, now that it's summer!)

Take a look below at the outfits that inspire NET A LA MODE and let us know what you think! Happy Monday everyone!

Ask The Stylist: The Maxi -- Yes or No?

It's summer time, and the livin' is breeezy. Time for Monday's Ask The Stylist!

Okay ladies, get ready to feast your eyes on the maxi dress. This ankle-length wonder garment has come back in style, but is still hard to find roaming the streets of Montreal. One must wonder, why? People seem to be a little on the border about the maxi. So today's question is....


The Maxi -- Yes or No?

Let's check out the logistics. First of all, come summer time, everyone wants to feel beautiful and stand out. With maxi dresses, one can find beautiful cuts and prints like the ones you see above from Covet, and BB Dakota. The aesthetic of a long, flowing maxi dress is visually stunning. A woman walking down the street wearing one always steals the attention of a crowd. Secondly, in hot summer weather, it's always a plus when you wear something that keeps you cool and comfortable. Not only does the maxi dress do exactly that, but no matter where you are or what you're doing, the feeling of the light and delicate fabric of a maxi caressing your entire body is utterly euphoric. So don't be surprised if you are in a strangely elated all day long, while wearing a maxi dress. Thus,

The Verdict?

NET A LA MODE says screams yes, Yes, YES! 
The mini dress is still fighting for survival, but the elegant maxi dress is surely going to take over -- as it should!
