Wardrobe Tips

One of the most challenging things about my job, aside from producing and delivering the weather forecasts, is achieving the right look.  I've demonstrated how I apply make up for TV, but getting dressed for TV is another beast in and of itself.  There are a few rules I go by, when it comes to picking the right outfit whether on or off the air.

1. Rock colors!!  No matter what your skin tone is, you can't go wrong with colors.  Unfortunately, I am limited in my selection because of the green screen.  If I decide to wear green, certain shades of yellow, teal, and turquoise then I will key out.  You'll see right through me!  If I happen to wear dark shades, I try to put some sort of color underneath to give my skin a nice pop.  But, you'll most likely see me in red, pink, orange, blue, and purple.

2.  Avoid patterns and frills.  While there are exceptions to every rule, I do feel that clothes with a lot of foo-foo-la give a bulky appearance.  If you happen to be a size zero, you can probably get away with most outfits.  But I'm not, so I have to be extra careful.  I'm an island girl who's a little bigger in the hip, butt, and thigh areas.   So, I usually go for a stream line look.

3.  Don't be afraid to show a little skin.  Hey, don't get it twisted.  I don't mean show up to work in a bikini.  But, you can go sleeveless.  If you have nice arms, why not show it off?  Have you seen our First Lady?  She looks amazing and professional in her sleeveless dresses.

4.  Be careful about choosing the right suit.  I know you're probably thinking, "This woman's crazy!" Despite what your career consultant told you, not all suits are great!  But they can be, if you choose ones that fit like a glove.  I see men and woman all the time in suits that aren't tailored correctly.  It just doesn't look good.  Check out the photo below.  I have a suit jacket that's very similar to the one on the right that I never wear because of how it photographs.  It bulges at the waist.  The one on the left looks too square.  A woman has curves!  Your suit jacket should reflect that!

5.  Reruns are ok!  Some of us are able to wear a new outfit everyday of the month/year.  Believe it or not, we TV folks repeat looks all the time.  That's why you should space your outfits out as much as possible.  I can, however, get away with repeating the same skirt/pants two to three days out of the week.  The trick is to pair your bottoms with different tops.  No one would ever know that the skirt you wore on Monday is the same one you're wearing on Wednesday.

6.  Accessorize, Accessorize, Accessorize!!  Sometimes accessories make the outfit.  It's also another way to repeat outfits.  The earring and necklace I wore the other day took attention away from the dress I wore twice in two weeks.  Plus, it gives your look an added boost.  You just have to be careful about the size of the jewelry.  Since my hair is a bit longer and my camera shots are a bit wider than the anchor close ups, I can get away with longer earings.

7.  Avoid wearing too many trendy pieces.  It's ok to have a couple of in style looks, but moderation is key.  Do you remember Cross Colors?  It was hot in the 90s.  Do you see anyone rocking that clothing line now?  I don't think so.  

I find that classic looks are the way to go because you can wear them for years.  It'll never go out of style.  

Whatever outfits and jewelry you rock, it's important to know what looks best on you.  I hope these tips are helpful.  If you have any of your own, please hit me up!  Sharing is caring:)!!
