Instantly look put-together with these coats

Seasons are so beautiful and I loooove how we can change the look of our outfits so easily with our coats!  You can wear classic pieces like a white shirt and black slim pant and add a beautiful coat.  The entire outfit looks instantly polished!

Here are a few of my favorites this holiday season:

Because it has sequins and makes everything happier, here











Because it creates a waist and the pop of navy is different, here











While I love black for it’s versatility sometimes a pop of color is just what we need for the winter months, here











Because I think everyone should have a REALLY fun piece of outerwear that is faNM-5XZJ_mkbulous and a statement on it’s own. LOVE THIS.



I love a “throw-and-go” piece. This is perfect for holidays for arm coverage and a fun piece to have in your wardrobe! Here

Four Ways to Style Your Turtleneck


Four ways to style your turtleneck

In my (style) book, a turtleneck is a must-have fall/winter staple.

It gives warmth, instant-chicness and is one of the easiest ways to update summer/fall to winter-chic.
Cashmere or cashmere-wool blends are great for those bone-chilling cold days but look for cotton or modal when layering like below.

The #1 tip to conquer shopping overwhelm

Have you ever dreamt of having a different figure?  I know I have.  Before I became a stylist I bought things that were TOTALLY not right for my figure(and hey, I still make mistakes!)

But when did I really realize I needed to shop for my figure?  See the very bad (furry) mistake here.

I can’t tell you how many clients would have “never tried that on..” and then, pulling on that dress they couldn’t “believe it.”  Well, I am here to tell you that when you know your figure you can conquer shopping overwhelm.  You’ll know exactly what to google or shop for.  Life and shopping become that much easier.


#1 tip to conquer shoppingoverwhelm, Hanna Lee Style,


I created this guide to help women embrace and dress for the figures they have, not the ones they want!

Once you purchase the guide and determine your figure, you can follow your figure board on Pinterest for FREE SHOPPING every first Thursday of the month I add new items!


Desk-to-dinner in under 10 minutes

Desk-to-dinner in under 10 minutes

Three quick transitions to go from desk-to-dinner

Three quick transitions from desk-to-dinner:

  1. Go bold red! You absolutely could be sporting this at work (fabulous!) But for those of you in more conservative offices, adding a red lip for night immediately changes your look.
  2. Higher the heel.  Choosing a higher heel for night simply says, “Less work, more play!” If you have a difficult time in heels, chose a wedge!
  3.  Choose (faux) leather.  During the summer from desk to date wear faux leather (it’s much lighter and more breathable!) A leather jacket will immediately make your work outfit look more night outfit.  There are SO many amazing, inexpensive faux leather jackets out right now. I’m obsessed!  I’ve included a few of my favorites at the bottom of the e-mail. 



Go bold red!
Higher heel is always sexier for night.
Go faux!

How to wear floral without looking like your grandma (or niece)

How to wear floral

Without looking like your grandma or twelve-year-old niece!

I LOVE floral.  The punches of color are so fresh and fun!  BUT, sometimes our floral frocks can look totally drab and

Three things to look for when buying a floral piece:

  •  Cut & shape: make sure it’s fitted well.
  • Similar to the above, pay attention to the length (I like either an inch or two above the knee or the thinnest part of your calf if you’re tall.)   Too long (grandma) or too short (niece.)
  • Look for bold punches of color rather than soft colors.  Bright colors (like mine below) are way easier to dress up or down. But soft yellows and greens tend to look really young.
  • Look for floral inspired like below.  This dress doesn’t scream floral yet, when I look at it, I see punches of floral inspiration. (Can I use the word floral one.more.time? Yikes!)

Cheers to a bright week ahead!

The focus piece!
  • Wear a military inspired jacket (or menswear inspiration.)
  • Pair with strappy sandal.
  • (Work) it with a black blazer, gold jewelry and kitten pump.
  • (Rock) it and make it edgier with leather (or faux like this one!)
  • Add a favorite black bootie.

Four easy wardrobe tips to hide belly fat

 Ah, the joys of belly fat! (Not.)4 Easy Wardrobe Tips to Hide Belly Fat, Hanna Lee Style,

Pregnancy and after has so many stages of dressing, mostly, I actually really enjoyed it. It forced me to be creative!

But four weeks after baby I’m in that very odd in-between stage.  (Similar to the 3 month pregnancy stage. Is she pregnant? Or fat?)  Whether you’re in the odd stage after pregnancy or simply have belly fat you want to hide, these four wardrobe cuts and shapes will help you hide that belly fat, look chic and fake your way to a flat stomach!

Four easy wardrobe tips to  hide belly fat


Button down blouse: this sleeveless denim has been a constant in my wardrobe right now. I am loving its versatility!  It can be worn for date night with a black pencil skirt, shorts for an easy summer look or a black ankle pant and blazer with a bold necklace. {Store: Evereve} Brand: Cloth & Stone.

Peplum. I’ve said it before and I’ll keep saying it. The peplum is the perfect top to hide belly fat.  Some rises are different on peplums (in fact this is a wee short) so keep that in mind when trying this shape. {Store: Anthropologie} Brand:  unknown



Shift dress with a 3/4 (bell) sleeve makes for the very perfect hide-belly-fat camouflage.  I love this dress so much I ordered it in a second color!  Shift dresses hide your belly because they hang loose from your shoulders and have no defined waist. {Store: Evereve} Brand: Billabong 4 Easy Wardrobe Tips to Hide Belly Fat, Hanna lee Style,









The drape.  I own both of these and they’re both fabulous. I couldn’t get pictures because this mama was breastfeeding in between photo shots and bottom-line?  Henry was not having it. He’d been patient enough.  These are also both BF friendly and  hide your belly, so in my book, they’re working overtime. {Store: Evereve} Brand: Allison JoyScreen Shot 2015-07-14 at 9.31.52 AM Screen Shot 2015-07-14 at 9.32.01 AM

9 Ways to Edit Your Wardrobe to Enhance Your Style

I wanted to share this article because I think it beautifully conveys how a) I’d like to write myself but more importantly b) true ways to edit your wardrobe!

Without further adieu..enjoy!


Size denial?

Size denial! 

During my pregnancy I was in serious size denial. At 28 weeks I was trying on pencil skirts (high-waisted nonetheless) and surprised when they wouldn’t fit above my hips.

It was ridiculous.


Not pregnant but in similar size denial?   Whether you’re holding onto that section of clothing in your closet that was 15 lbs ago, keeping that jacket because it “was so expensive’ or it’s simply wardrobe that doesn’t represent YOU anymore: get it out of your closet!  (Not if your pregnant, put that away in storage for now.)

Standing in front of my closet, feeling annoyed and frustrated that after trying on 7 things and nothing fits, well, I’m more annoyed.

Why am I keeping clothing in front of me I know I can’t fit?  It makes no sense!   Yet, my clients do it ALL the time and here I am doing exactly what I abhor. 

So friends, it’s now or never.  Let go and clean out.  Edit, edit, edit. 

Whether you literally cannot fit a group of clothing or it just doesn’t represent you anymore, LET IT GO. 

Please donate your wardrobe, it can really make a difference in others lives!

Have a great rest of your week,
