Tina Tang on a down economy
I have noticed that a lot of designers are creating clothing in blacks and greys – probably to go with the sentiment of the current economy. I was wondering what is hot for jewelry? What do I wear with the understated clothing?
Tina: It’s all about BIG AND BOLD! You can thank Michele Obama for that inspiration. Her colorful and statement style jewelry has brought life back into jewelry! Large beaded and colorful jewelry would be the perfect match to the dark tones in clothing. See this Kenneth Jay Lane necklace that can brighten any outfit.
I am going on a interview and wanted to spice up my boring suit. What do you suggest would make me memorable yet still appropriate?
Tina: An unusual yet, not too large necklace or even a vintage pin would be stand out! You can wear your navy suit but just add a small dash of detail to start a conversation in your interview. Madeleine Albrecht, the former Secretary of State, was renowned for her pins as an indicator of her thoughts that day!
