Our model search winner Trish illustrates just how one great dress can make all the difference when you want to make a statement with your fashion. Look at how well this simple sheath dress from Ann Taylor fits her. This was a real bargain due to the high quality of the cotton fabric and the machine embroidered pattern on the dress. The wonderful thing about a go-to dress like this is that it doesn’t need much in the way of accessorizing. We made it pop by adding some vintage yellow, floral earrings, and a green, beaded chain necklace that pick up on the tones of the embroidery in the dress. A classic pair of Ann Klein leather pumps and she was good to go wherever the day or evening might take her! Always look for high-quality name brand dresses when you’re out shopping at Goodwill, and you too can look as fabulously fashionable as Trish does!

Cory proves that sporty looks can be fashion forward too! Here we’ve combined classic elements such as the American Eagle plaid shorts, blue and white striped sweater, and a Ben Sherman graphic print t-shirt. When looking at all the items separately you might think they’d be too much together, but that is the beauty of layering when all the pieces share a common thread. In this case the common thread is red, white, and blue. These patriotic colors always work together in harmony even if the tones don’t exactly "match." Cory had some cool sunglasses and light blue Sperry Topsider deck shoes that really played along well with our sporty summer theme. He definitely has a fun, casual and comfortable look going here, and you can too by looking for similar items to add to your warm weather wardrobe.
