Pretty in Pastels: Spring’s Most Wearable Trend

Now that spring is in full bloom, we’re finally shedding our cold-weather layers to make way for new pieces. There were a ton of approachable trends on the Spring 2014 runways, but perhaps the most wearable of them all was pastels. Timeless and feminine, this toned-down color palette was given a fresh update by some of our favorite designers. From menswear-inspired suits at Jason Wu to a curve-enhancing dress at Prabal Gurung, this is the type of trend that travels seamlessly from work to weekend.

Here at Gurjot New York, we are head-over-heels for spring pastels and are integrating them into our working wardrobes as much as possible. And there is no better way to sport this trend at the office than with a silk blouse. An essential foundation to the suit, we love a sleeveless blouse this time of year because it keeps us cool as the temperatures rise. Our Sleeveless Silk Barrington Shirt is available in both sage and rose, two pretty pastels that pair with just about every color from navy to grey. If you want to rock the trend but are looking for different hues and silhouettes, we have a variety available to customize a shirt with both our Custom and Ready Select lines. If you’re looking for a simple way to upgrade your wardrobe for spring, a luxurious silk shirt in one of spring’s lovely, refined pastels is the absolute best way to change up your look.

Spring has finally arrived, and we can’t wait to get out of our winter clothes and step into a new, fresh look to welcome warmer weather. As usual, there were many trends that came down the Spring 2014 runways we can’t wait to get our hands on, but there is one trend in particular that is a Gurjot New York favorite this season – stripes. From bright, candy-colored separates to graphic black and white, there is a stripe for everyone this season. Not only is this print timeless, it can also be extremely flattering. Vertical stripes elongate the body while those cut on a bias hug the silhouette perfectly to show off your curves. And horizontal stripes aren’t the nightmare some people make them out to be. As long as you’re dressing in a silhouette that’s flattering to you, any type of stripe will do.

Here at Gurjot New York, we’re ready to earn our style stripes this spring and do it our way. As always, we believe looking and feeling great comes first in the workplace because it ups your confidence and prepares you for whatever the day may bring. For us, this means incorporating runway trends into our working wardrobe. Luckily with stripes, this is quite the easy task. Not only are pinstripes flattering a professional, we use them quite a bit in our Ready Collection. If you’re not finding exactly what you want there, you can customize a shirt dress, button-up collared shirt or blouse with one of the many striped fabrics we have available for our Bespoke pieces. Want a striped silk lining but aren’t ready for a full-on custom garment? Shop our GNY Ready Select collection to customize a ready garment’s lining or change the fabric of a silk blouse for a small fee. No matter how you’re looking to wear stripes this spring, we have your back!

Slip into Silk

March 24th, 2014

Sterl on Style

The first day of spring has sprung and if you live in New York and other parts of the country you may still be experiencing the unusually cold weather.

By simply adding a pop of color with a silk blouse, you can freshen up those dark suits you own and take your look effortlessly from winter to spring.

Adding a pop of color is a great way to bring some SPRING into your wardrobe, and also a way to differentiate yourself and become memorable.

“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different” Coco Chanel said 100 years ago. She was defining what it meant for a woman to become memorable and influential in what she wears even before “personal branding” had become all the rage.

How will you differentiate yourself?

I help my clients become memorable in business by showing them how to choose a signature color.

As in… “Who was that woman in that gorgeous purple blouse…?!”

The power of color is potent. Colors have an energy, whether calm-and-cool blue, or ready-for-action red. By wearing color you can help your own level of energy and convey to others a sense of excitement or serenity.

Explore colors according to your eye color, or what will enhance your complexion For example, someone with hazel eyes and brown hair could wear spring green to make her eyes sparkle.

My mom wears pastel pink because it flatters her alabaster skin and silver hair and simply because it also makes her happy. When you are feeling happy you will inspire others. As a woman, she likes to differentiate herself from the men in business—equal, yet different with her feminine flair.

Your suitings are investment pieces that become the core of your wardrobe in stable colors like navy, grey, black, brown, and pinstripes.

Gray suiting evokes wisdom; enhance it with elegant eggplant purple or soft lavender.

A navy suit expresses trust, and popping it with orange adds an optimistic message.

Classic black is brought to life by popping exciting fuchsia that’s bright and lively, adding color to your cheeks.

Brown suiting looks rich enhanced with a soft cream for an understated, timeless elegance that conveys stability and experience.

The Gurjot New York signature Biscayne dress envelopes you in comfort inside and out as the lining is also in silk for a sumptuous way to smooth out your curves. It’s a gorgeous piece you can accentuate with your jewels that will take you from desk to dinner!

The quality of silk is a great investment buy. It feels luxurious to the skin and is a quality fiber that adds posh and richness to your look.

Gurjot New York is ready with a colorful array of blouses and dresses that can express your professional message, as well as your unique personality.

Make your appointment today, or feel free to browse these luscious colors online and shop from the convenience of your home to save you precious time.

…and bring some much needed SPRING into your wardrobe!

“Colors inspired by the runway…brought to your working wardrobe the REAL WAY…by Gurjot…” !

Beauty Tips for the Busy Executive

October 21st, 2013

No matter what industry you call home, we all have something in common as working women: the morning rush. Even if you choose your outfit the night before and have your bag packed and ready to go, a lengthy beauty routine can completely foil your intentions to be timely. But there are ways to pare down your morning regime so you still look fresh and beautiful without scrambling to get out the door in time. Try these four beauty tips for the busy executive, and you’ll see what we mean.

Silver Essential Blouse from Gurjot New York
Tinted Moisturizer: Ladies: never underestimate the power of an amazing tinted moisturizer. It creates a smooth base for makeup and can be used with or without foundation depending on the coverage you want and time you’re willing to spend. Our favorite? Dr. Jart+ V7 Beauty Balm is the perfect lightweight formula, providing incredible coverage, SPF30 sun protection, hydration and anti-aging effects, all in the minute it takes to apply.

Versatile Eye Palette: Want to make sure your eyeshadow stays in place all day? All you actually need is a great primer and professional formula packed with botanicals and highly-pigmented color. Once you try Lorac’s PRO Palette Eye Shadow, complete with the incredible Behind The Scenes Primer, you’ll never want anything less in your makeup bag.

Lengthening Mascara: This goes without saying, but a great mascara will up the ante of your look tenfold. It brightens and highlights the eyes, making the slightest sign of fatigue disappear. Diorshow is our go-to when we need an extreme pick-me-up, never failing to provide long, thick lashes with a few swipes of the wand.

Texturizing Spray: No time to wash your hair before work? As great alternative to dry shampoo, texturizing spray will give body to limp hair and provide a matte finish. We love everything Oribe, and their Dry Texturizing Spray is a winner.
