In April, we wrote a blog post about the relevance of etiquette in our society. It is clear that etiquette has become lost in translation over time. In a professional setting, candidates lose the opportunity to make a favorable, lasting impression by disregarding simple steps in etiquette. At Lily Winston, we believe that the smallest of actions can have the greatest of impacts. And who knows, that impact may just be the key to securing a new job or receiving a promotion.Read More
In today’s day and age, we are accustomed to sharing and interacting using our social media accounts. We publicize every aspect of our lives, whether it be the dinner recipe you made last night or photos from your family vacation last weekend. We post everything from our thoughts about celebrity red carpet looks to our political views. We have transitioned to a pattern of automatically posting when something interesting or new happens to us. But what we think of as harmless sharing with our friends and family can often be taken too far. When certain social media posts find their way into our professional life, consequences can be disastrous. Reputations can be damaged and positions can be taken away. It’s important to know what to post and what to keep to ourselves. Continue reading below to learn about five major mistakes that can downgrade you from social media expert to amateur.Read More
We’ve heard it said that “money doesn’t buy class.” It’s true: the title of your job, amount on your paycheck, or status in society has no place when it comes to presenting yourself to others in a positive light.
Etiquette is not a reflection of your background or your financial security, it is simply the steps you take to make a favorable, lasting impression. Anyone can be taught etiquette; it is cost-free for you and priceless in the world of business. You become elevated with the proper etiquette. It is an effective tool in marketing yourself to others.Read More
You can’t believe the price of the counterfeit Chanel bag you just bought. So the craftsmanship may not even be close to that of the actual purse, but all of your friends will believe you purchased the real deal. Only you’ll know the truth, and will it really bother you all that much?
In purchasing counterfeit bags, customers may be unknowingly supporting questionable organizations often responsible for the production and distribution of these goods. Economically, the sale of counterfeit designer products may result in the loss of jobs and revenue from original designers, as well as the possibility of these questionable organizations not complying with tax laws.Read More
THE BOYFRIEND JEAN
You may be hesitant to give in to the latest trend of boyfriend jeans. But with the right ensemble, these otherwise masculine, boxy jeans can give you an effortlessly chic and flattering look. Purchase these wide-legged pants cuffed and slightly distressed for the perfect look. Wear them with a classic pair of heels and a neutral sweater or blazer for a unique business casual look.
THE SKINNY JEAN
Love them or hate them, the skinny jean is here to stay. In a dark wash, the skinny jean can be the perfect item to pair with a leather jacket or blazer for a professional look. For a more business causal dress code, try a tunic or over-sized sweater accompanied by a pair of heeled booties. Or, dress the jean down with a simple tee and a pair of flats or ankle boots.
THE STRAIGHT LEG JEAN
Keep your closet stocked with the jean that will never go out of style. This timeless pair of jeans is best worn with a pair of flats or ankle boots. Complete the look with an elegant blouse, sweater, or blazer for a simple and sophisticated look.
THE FLARE JEAN
With everyone seemingly obsessed with the skinny jean look, your flare jeans may have ended up buried in the back of your closet. Pull them out! If styled correctly, they’ll give your ensemble a chic edge. For a professional and tasteful look, wear dark wash jeans with a sweater underneath a long pea coat or a simple staple top. Heels are a necessity.
THE DENIM BUTTON DOWN
Dress it up or dress it down; the denim button down is easily one of the most versatile pieces you can own.Read More

What is so attractive about the relatively new activewear trend that has so rapidly become prominent in just about every modern woman’s wardrobe? And more importantly, what is the correct way to wear it? At Lily Winston, we believe it is absolutely crucial for the busiest and most tenacious of working women to seize the same benefits as the rest of the world and wear something that is pleasantly comfortable, yet inspires confidence and is just as fabulous as the women wearing it. Athleisure provides women with just that. Not only can the style be worn casually in their own home and working out at the gym, but women can wear the fashion when shopping for groceries, running errands, walking the dog, even grabbing lunch with friends…as long as it’s done right.Read More
This month, we are challenging you to discover your inner beauty and to love yourself for who you are, inside and out. It is so easy for women to lose themselves in the hustle and bustle of everyday life and the unyielding modern media glorifying the “perfect” woman.
