Now that Halloween is over (I hope you had a great weekend!), it seems like everyone on social media has already moved on to Christmas and the holiday season—say what?!

If you’ve been following me for a while, then you’ve probably heard me mention this dynamic duo and their TLC makeover show “What Not to Wear.” Unfortunately, the show ended a few years ago, but its memory goes on (and, more importantly, the style lessons it taught us). While I learned a great deal about fashion and fit from this show, Stacy and Clinton have one tip in particular that will always help create more interesting outfits.
