Style Tips: Prepping for the “School Year” Ahead


Looking for ways to stay chic and confident in the midst of the Fall season rush? Check out these fabulous tips by the experts at Heucy

Okay, gals.  It’s mid October (where did the time go?!) and if you’re like me, you’re still in the midst of a summer vacation haze.

The weekends go by too fast, and it is (still) very, very difficult to get the kids to school on time.  Even if they wake up before 6am.

Stop lashing yourself and read this guide to getting dressed in the morning.  No matter how many little or big humans are trying to sabotage my “out the door” exit plan, this will save you at least ten minutes of precious time in the A.M.  Heucy

Tip #1: Think of your outfit the night before. This is akin to laying out your kids’ clothes for school the next day. It works, if you have the time and wherewithal — and headspace — to style yourself in advance of the day ahead. Try to make this a priority.

Tip #2: Pick something dark. At HEUCY, we are big fans of black, gray and other dark shades that effectively camouflage wear, tear and stains. You dropped your latte all over your chest this morning? Just be happy you didn’t burn yourself, and move past it. Our organic jersey fabric is great for wiping off an unwanted mess. Choose bright accessories (tangerine kitten heels, a red handbag) to add a punch of color and personality.

Tip #3: Layer! It’s that time of year. Cold one minute, but once the sun hits you and you’re locked between tall buildings, you’re sweating. Scarves, light jackets and cardigans are October necessities.

Tip #4: Invest in a comfortable jumpsuit. We love ours but there are lots of high and low options out there.  HEUCY’s version is made of soft cotton and it works well in meetings with adults and children…so you’re covered, literally and figuratively, no matter what your job for the day may be.

Tip #5: Love thyself.  This is the time of year when we are jarred into scheduling meetings, play dates, time with our partners…all things that should give us joy. So if you forgot about the coffee date with your best friend, don’t beat yourself up. Or you were late for a meeting with your boss? Again, it happens. You fed your child birthday cake for breakfast because you didn’t have anything else in the fridge? He’ll live. We’re all human, and Fall is one of the best seasons ever. Enjoy it. And be comfortable and chic at the same time.  Because you deserve it.
