H&M Has Us All in a Monochromatic State of Mind This Fall.....

The subtle yet striking combination of black and white tailoring returns triumphant for fall, and it's the best you've looked with the least amount of effort.  

Simple... Elegant and Fabulous!

All these gorgeous looks can be found at H&M......

Falling Into Black... Fashion & Styles We LOVE!

There's something classic about wearing all black. Not  that we need to portray a season of mourning, but just a few chic pieces of the favored hue can add a hint of sophistication to any wardrobe. Whether it's a 'Little Black Dress" or a head to toe black out, you will be the talk of the room with your effortless styling. 

When donning all black, there are absolutely no rules you have to follow. Spice things up with a splash of color... Opt for a colorful shoe, handbag or even a scarf!
Whatever you do... Make it Fabulous!

Lashing out for Fall...... Sneak a Peek at Liyah H. Lashes

Who doesn't adore a great lash???  Whether you're turning your mascara up, adorning individuals or opting for the quickie strips, just make sure your lashes are saying "Hello" this season .

While individuals are not my personal fave.... (long story, but let's just say parting with your natural lashes ain't always pretty.) Professional application may be your thing... I said PROFESSIONAL!! I have heard all kinds of stories and seen some as well. Hair bonding glue should NEVER be applied on the lash line. Water based glue DUO will keep your lashes in place and save your sight... You're Welcome!

One of our absolute fave lashateers TM (I coined the phrase, so don't y'all go quoting without giving me my props), Liyah H. Lashes has some of the best lashes for under $10. I love the fact that I can get more than one use out of my lashes. It's also a saving grace when I go to sleep and wake up with my lashes in tact. 

Click Here, and check out Miss Liyah... Her lashes are THE BOMB!
And be sure and tell her Tres Chic Style sent ya....

Fall Fashion Must-Haves at H&M.....

Out of all the seasons, I must admit I absolutely LOVE Fall ! It's that time of year when you can layer your best pieces, rock your stiletto boots without worry of ice or snow (depending on where you dwell) and look all kinds of AMAZING. 

Now we all know that GUCCI is the latest celeb fashion choice, and while we are loving the signature Green & Red Stripe... We're searching for a way to turn it all the way up this Fall and have found a few looks that will keep you Tres Chic while not breaking the bank.....

Patterned Blouse with Ties
One of my fave Swedish retailers H&M has always found a way to keep our closets filled with the hautest pieces, however they also realize a fashionista has rent, car payments.. and an occasional penchant for Sushi (and not that supermarket kind).

H & M 's newest collection William Morris & Co. X H&M is delivering crisp fall vibes in neutrals, emerald greens and a touch of burgundy for a classic melange of style. 

Pleated Skirt 
Pleats are BACK! A pleated skirt can be paired with a blouse, tank or a simple tee. Either way you choose to rock it, trust you'll look fabulous....

Wool Blend Coat
Light Beige  Melange

You can never have too many coats.... Ever!
The fab folks at H&M partnered with William Morris & Co. to bring us this wool-blend coat that is perfect for the season and it's under $50! 

Dark Blue Velvet

And nobody creates a hat of the season like the folks over at H&M.... The Captain's Cap is back and it's the perfect lil' something to complete your look with ease. 

Fashion is Fleeting..... Style Never Fades.....

Well guess who's back.....

While we've been on a hiatus, I am ecstatic to announce Tres Chic Style has returned to the blogosphere to shake things up a bit and continue the tradition of delivering you the best in fashion, beauty and lifestyle and always intend to step it up a notch with even more reviews, tutorials and a few celeb interviews.

75th Annual Golden Globes Experiences a Fashion "Black Out"

Sunday evenings Golden Globe attendees delivered a message of solidarity while donning a sea of black. In response to the recent sexual allegations of abuse in the industry, many celebs decided early on that they were going to wear all black as a part of the #TimesUpInitiative created by actresses Reese Witherspoon, Tracee Ellis Ross and Brie Larson. The initiative is an action plan and legal defense fund that promotes gender and racial parity across all industry.

Many went the all black route, while a few splashed a pop of color. Noticeably was the small black and white "Time's Up" pin many affixed to their looks.

Chic Holiday Travel Tips.... Just in Time for Thanksgiving!

We are emerging on the busiest travel day of the year..... Can you believe one year like 20 members of my family drove from Brooklyn to Summerville, South Carolina (that's where we're from) on Thanksgiving Day! It was a looooong damn trip.

We stopped and drove and stopped and you get the picture.... My road trip days via automobile are over for now, but TSA regulations can really put a snag on your airline travel.

I've compiled a few travel tips to ease the wait (oops I mean flight) along... First things first, just because your going to see family, doesn't mean you can't look good. Pack a few must have items of clothing to accentuate a glam look. You never know when your married cousin will invite that cute single co-worker.

Who knows, you may be packing again for Christmas......or planning a New Year's visit. Leave the drama at home... yes we all know Uncle Jr. drinks too much at the dinner table and Aunt Bea gossips too much, but just suck it up for Turkey Day.....

  •  Get to the airport on time and if possible skip the Bag Check Empty all your pockets and make sure those stiletto boots are outfitted with cute socks/tights for the random screening check. (Feet Up Please...) 
  •  Remember that 3oz. rule, no liquids larger than 3oz. and don't forget the Ziploc bag. Do not get into an altercation with the TSA agent when she takes your 8oz bottle of Bath & Body Works and tosses it.......she is just doing her job (and will probably be smelling nice too courtesy of you). All your fault, you should have read my Favorite Holiday Things post and you would've know better. 
  •  Carry your laptop so you can get your daily dose of Tres Chic Style... And share the blog with your cousin Reesie, you know she likes to "get her hair did." Stop at Target (because their always 20% off at Target) and pick up the latest copies of your favorite Fashion Magazines. 
  •  As always a fashionista must be pampered before the trip, Do the hair/nails & pedicure ritual before you leave. 
  •  While on the plane, jot down at least 5 things in your life your thankful for. At the end of the flight tuck the list in your bag and if anybody works your nerves during the holiday go to the list and it'll help you realize what really matters..... Happy Thanksgiving!

Winter Trend Alert..... What We're Loving.... And Wanting....

Seasons are better when you're dressed well.... Well they are, seriously! 

Nothing kicks your style up a game a notch like the perfect stilettos for summer or a to-die-for statement coat as you sashay through chilling temps in the winter. Effortlessly chic is the name of the game and I'm sharing a few of my absolute favorites for an absolutely fashionable and fabulous Fall. 

Do Take Notes......

1. Statement Coats- Nothing commands attention in a room,Ike a stunning coat. Step out of the "simple coat" rut and opt for a splashy hue or add a dash of fur at your collar. You can always make it your own by adorning with a stylish brooch, and over-sized scarf or a fierce belt to cinch your waist and define your total look. 

2. A Chic Chapeaux- Wide-Brim hats are my style BFF's. Not only do they transform your look, they single-handledly deliver a dose of grandeur. The larger, the better.... Tilt that baby to the side, slip on some over-sized sunnies and WERK! 

3. Boots.... Boots and More Boots- Riding boots, Stilettos, Chunky-Heel, Laced.... Darlings, take your pick and wear them well! 

4. Chunky Sweaters- Pair with leggings, your fave jeans or an ultra chic mini for a polished look. 

5. Scarves- Nothing screams "Dominique Devereaux" {Google It} like a scarf thrust over your coat. Double or triple it for a "Boucle Effect" or simply wrap around your neck and tie. 

It's the holiday season and we're ready to take bake cookies, sip cider, get together with friends, wear sparkly holiday dresses and of course SHOP!

If you're a fabulous reader of Tres Chic Style, then you know this is our favorite time of year. While we work on our  "12 Chic Days Of Christmas" Gift Guide, we're smelling, sloughing and getting the absolute BEST in Beauty, Fashion and Lifestyle for you.

Stay Tuned... Chic Goodies are on the way and we can hardly wait.

In a Chic Medical Minute: The Negative Effects on Your Health of Working a Desk Job By, Dr. Josh Sandell

With so many job positions calling for long periods of sitting at a desk for the majority of the workday, it's no surprise that research shows extended sitting has a negative impact on your health. 

What's shocking is that the amount of daily exercise you do does not counterbalance the eight-plus hours spent in a chair.

Dr. Josh Sandell of Orthology, a world-class solution for rapid recovery from physical injuries and chronic pain, has outlined some of the negative effects of extended sitting and several ways to incorporate more standing into your everyday life.

How Working a Desk Job Negatively Affects Your Health
The World Health Organization has named physical inactivity as one of the leading causes of death worldwide. What's even more surprising is that if you think your daily workouts counterbalance eight-plus hours spent in a chair, think again. 

Research shows extended periods of sitting have a negative impact on your health, regardless of how much exercise you get otherwise.

Dr. Josh Sandell of Orthology, a world-class solution for rapid recovery from physical injuries and chronic pain, has outlined some of the negative effects of extended sitting and several ways to incorporate more standing into your everyday life.

The Trouble with Sitting
The act of prolonged sitting can lead to serious physical problems, mainly because a seated posture tends to keep your body totally immobile. Other forms of sedentary behavior usually allow for some postural changes and small movements that keep your blood flowing.
According to the Washington Post, long periods of chair-bound stillness may increase the risk of damage to your heart (and other organs), deep vein thrombosis in your legs, vertebral disc problems, and even an elevated risk for certain forms of cancer. Furthermore, a study cited by the American Academy of Family Physicians states that otherwise-sedentary individuals can boost their health simply by sitting less.

Simple Solutions
If you find yourself opting to take a seat whenever possible throughout the day, you may find the idea of spending more time on your feet a daunting prospect. Here are some simple ways to be more "vertical" during everyday life:

Consider a Car-Free or Car-Light Lifestyle
If your workplace, neighborhood grocery store, and other amenities are within walking distance of your home, consider leaving your car behind and using your legs as a means of transportation. Even taking the bus is a healthier alternative, since it gives you the option of standing for most or all of your trip.

Work Upright
Standing desks provide several benefits; in fact, a Texas A&M study found that students who stand exhibited improved brain function. Since standing in place for hours has its own risks to the feet and circulatory system, you may also want to get in the habit of walking to your co-workers' offices for conversations instead of phoning or online messaging them.

Add a Treadmill to Your Passive Recreation
Americans spend an average of five hours a day watching TV, according to the New York Daily News. Why not spend a portion of that time upright — or even exercising? Investing in a modest home treadmill means you can keep moving without missing your favorite shows and movies.
Take a big step toward preserving your health and longevity by stepping away from the sofa or chair whenever you have the option. The next time you feel like sitting, consider standing or walking instead!

In Chic Film Review: Barbershop The Next Cut Sashays Into Theaters & Our Hearts Friday April 15th

​It's been 14 years since the first installment of Ice Cube's hilariously funny tale of the day to day antics of a typical urban barbershop. Barbershop has always been filled with laughter, quirky one-liners and the ridiculosuly funny man Cedric The Entertainer. The third and in my opinion the BEST Barbershop debuts this Friday and is a must see anyone in need of a laugh with a powerful message behind it.

I attended the Vegas "Barbershop The Next Cut" with my 11 year old last night and departed the theater with such a feeling of pride. The film produced by Malcolm D. Lee reminded us all of the issues facing the black community sans the Hollywood filter and rhetoric. The Next Cut gracefully captured the authentic feelings that many mother's and fathers of color are faced with daily.

With an emphasis on community and family The Next Cut features a dynamic cast of franchise favorites Ice Cube, Cedric The Entertainer, Eve, Sean Patrick Thomas and Troy Garity. Anthony Anderson, Regina Hall, Common, Nicki Minaj, JB Smoove and Lamorne Morris leave us all longing for an afternoon in the South Side's favorite barbershop.

Make plans to see Barbershop The Next Cut... You'll Thank Me Later!
Watch the Trailer, Here.
