Staying Elegant While Being Bold in the Summer Heat
We’re in the midst of this summer’s first heat wave; it’s one hundred degrees today here, in Chicago. At TWOmuchSTYLE, we have the perfect fashion cure for that: sheer!
Sheer – as in see through, diaphanous, and cooling; it’s what we recommend for a hot summer evening. In today’s post, we photographed Rebecca Bailey in an Oscar De La Renta’s silk, tulle embroidered dress with leaf applique worn with a Saint Laurent feather, wrap sandal. A little leg baring look to inspire you to be daring this summer.
Stay cool, let the air in. IT’S SUMMER.

GRANNY PANTIES: WHAT WE’RE LOVING RIGHT NOW!
Granny panties, the brief that’s been showing up on the runways of Paris and Milan, are in every editorial for spring, summer, fall, and winter. Dior’s Maria Grazia Chiuri showed them for fall under sheer skirts. And other designers followed suit!
When styling an ad campaign for Jockey a few weeks back, the Elance brief was on the list in a soft floral matelassé print. The fit is high-waisted and reminiscent of the Dior ones styled in the fall.
The Elance is a perfect fit for summer as it comes in cotton with a...
UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF THE CAVE BOYS OF THAILAND!
Welcome to Summer! We are under the influence of the rescued cave boys of Thailand.We are happy that all is well and that they were rescued before the Monsoon hits. Well, Summer is here and this post is about how to borrow from the boys. In our featured image, We give you all Balmain in all its androgyny,with a tuck here and a tuck there, it proves that Masculinity need not be boring. Balance is key. A slim silhouette is best balanced with an oversize layer of a jacket or shirt. Pair a baggy loose mans trouser with a slim T shirt and bomber and Voila , feel like one of the...
For Truly Chic Bridal: It’s All in the Details
We like to think that our bridal editorial is fantastic, and we hope you agree. As you’ll see, we try to add a veil where necessary and omit where we can. Really, more flowers are what we love. Check out our nominations for best accessories in a supporting role.
Besides our detailed accessories, The Row pink silk dress is a dream; and we hope you appreciate our bow tying skills. The Dries Van Noten jeweled sandal was added for perfect balance; the look needed a little hint of sparkle.

How to be Smart and Stylish When Searching for Your Perfect Bridal Look.
Your wedding day should be pure perfection — the best day of your life. It is by design that the bride wears an all-white, fluffy dress with a traditional veiled face, and a floral bouquet. At TWOmuchSTYLE we understand the importance of being true to your individual look. We suggest taking a breath from conventional dress standards and shop from the fashion runways. A classic wedding dress is expensive and it’s worn only once. Not a smart choice in our opinion.
In producing this editorial, we visited some of our favorite collaborators: Blake, Elements, Neiman Marcus, and Saks Fifth Avenue.
We revisited a bridal favorite, The Ultimate Bride. We decided...
Today will be a beautiful spring day. Temperatures will climb to the 60's. We are in the midst of editing and laying out our Bridal editorial. Today we'd like to share our current obsession, all white everything with a splash of color. This image was taken at Jayson Home on their Cardet marble top table. Celine's small purse with eyelet is the focus in all its purity. Our lady, or shall we say, future bride is having a moment surrounded by a few accoutrements and of course her favorite J Crew enamel bangles. She is finalizing her guest list as her wedding day is fast approaching. These are her favorite things and miraculously, ours as well.

"TELL THEM I SENT YOU"...
WELCOME TO MONDAY. We hope the weekend was a fantastic one. A bit wet but nevertheless, April showers brings May flowers.At TWOmuchSTYLE we are pushing the idea of the non traditional look for your wedding day. A white suit is a fantastic way to interpret your wedding choice. It could be dolled up to great effect with an amazing veil, Jewels and flowers and of course the right shoe. The idea is that this suit could be worn again and again. Think smart, your wedding day is about the experience and not about the dress.
Let us know your thoughts.
