  • Q.

    What's a good color to wear with a black outfit?

    A.

    I dare you to fire up basic black with a pop of red, then watch how it instantly turns heads!

  • Q.

    I've heard of the LBD (little black dress), but what's the LBP?

    A.

    Move over LBD, it's time for the perfect LBP (little black pant) to take the spotlight. My pick is the Talbots ankle pant. It goes from casual to dressy in a snap, just by changing a pair of flats to sexy caged pumps.

  • Q.

    Do you have a tip for wearing sequins?

    A.

    This summer wear your sequins in a subtle way. My favorite is the sequin-pocket cardi. I love how it adds a little summer shine just by throwing it over my most casual tees and summer dresses!

  • Q.

    What's your favorite summer color to wear?

    A.

    Summer is my favorite time of the year to wear yellow. It instantly adds that perfect look-at-me glamour to all of my white and khaki staples. My pick—the honeycombed-textured jacket.

  • Q.

    I love animal prints, but I don't want to look like I belong in the zoo. Any advice?

    A.

    Offset wild prints with black, beige or ivory neutrals. Tame a tiger-print pleated skirt with a black or white tee, then glam it up with a metallic accessory.

  • Q.

    What do you see as the must-have handbag for spring?

    A.

    The slouchy tote is spring's most sophisticated carryall. My must-have is the tiger haircalf — big and roomy!

  • Q.

    What should I be thinking about as I pull together my spring outfits?

    A.

    Mixing earthy neutrals with the season's bright hues. Try soda pop with canyon brown or prairie rose with desert sand.

  • Q.

    I'm giving myself a makeover. What should I do with my hairstyle?

    A.

    Stiff hairstyles are aging! So let your hair flow — try it down and wavy, or an easy up-do like a textured twist.
