Dressing the Part

She never goes out of style.

WHO:

Tanya Monaghan, Manhattan Beach | thekayagirl.com

WHERE:

Downtown Manhattan Beach, site of this year’s Southbay Girls Night Out!

WHAT:

For a second year, Tanya returns as stylist to our annual fashion event on Friday, May 8, 6 p.m.

SPRING STYLE TIP:

“I personally gravitate toward colorful, exotic prints. A fashion-forward way to mix things up this season is to throw on a pair of sneakers or sporty slip-ons with a skirt or dress. I hate keeping my pretty dresses stuffed in a closet until a fancy invitation presents itself. Get more wear out of your ‘occasion’ pieces by dressing them down.”
