Be a Clothing Swap Party Goddess with these 5 Practical Party Tips

Ever thought about hosting a clothing swap party?  It’s a fun, free way to build up a whole new wardrobe.  Plus, you get the added bonus of spending some quality time with your friends.  

Our favorite clothing swap parties are those that make you feel like you’re shopping in your favorite boutique.  You have your clothes well organized, music on the stereo, and drinks flowing (though, skip the red wine, lest it stain the clothes).  How do you throw a great swap party?  We have five tips - in video form - from our guest appearance on Blogher’s latest episode of The Juice.

How to Wear Brightly Colored Socks

How to Wear Brightly Colored Socks
Feeling the love for this set?  Here’s more information about it.

Bright socks?  Yes, you read that right, and yes, you can wear them without looking like you stepped off the runway.  You can incorporate brightly colored socks into your regular wardrobe.  The key is to keep the rest of your outfit simple so as to make your socks stand out.  Here’s how to get the look of bright socks:

1.  Start with your foundation: a plain white button down shirt and a pair of jeans.  As usual, fit is key here so that the look is sophisticated, not sloppy.  (Alternatively, sub in grey trousers for the dark straight leg jeans, if you’re going for a dressier look.)
2.  Add the key element: a pair of bright orange socks.  We chose orange to complement the dark blue jeans.
3.  Finish off the look with a brown belt and wing tip shoes, for a dressier touch.
