Silhouettes, Structures, and Shapes….with a hint of the Jana Kos Winter Line

From Project Runway to fashion magazines, style professionals constantly discuss SILHOUETTES…..outlines of an image. Most of my life, I have not pondered what my shadowy image might look like.  However, I have to shudder as I envision reflections of the football shoulder pads in some of my suits from the 80s; the boxy figure of the oversized shirts I was attempting to hide under; or the long Little House on the Prairie dresses from early motherhood.   I so hope today’s silhouette is more feminine as I embrace those curves!

I have learned the importance of shapes and structure with my clothing.  Both will help the shadow be one you can look at and secretly, silently yell a resounding “YES!”    Designer Jana Kos is a master at silhouettes and I wanted to introduce to you some of her recently released winter collection!  Let me know what you think.

Have a Great, Holiday Weekend Everyone!!


  1. Pam, it's true…you hear it all the time..silhouette is so important. Most of the time, I'm going for the hourglass outline. But every now and then, I just like a long flowing line. I think the most important thing is to know what you want and go for that. Things don't seem to work for me when I don't really have a vision to begin with. I think this may be one of my favorite outfits on you. You look amazingly classic and cut a very feminine chic silhouette!! Happy Weekend!!! ~Serene

  2. I love that curvy tunic! Yes, silhouettes are so important. I'm still mostly embracing the long-over-lean which balances my *own* silhouette. Love the top picture with the tree shadow!

  3. Wow, those designs are beautiful, and you're right about the silhouettes. I never used to pay too much attention to mine either, but now I make it a point to stand far back from the mirror and try to focus just on the overall shape. I find this makes me a lot happier with my finished outfits. The best are those dark office windows where you can catch a glimpse of just your silhouette as you walk by!

  4. I love a classic female shape–but I like a change from that too evrey now and then.
    I think you are just looking fabulous this year; you look wonderful in skirts and I am so glad to see you wearing them! Cheers!
