  • A Note From Sharon Haver

    a note from sharon haver-1 Hello Gorgeous,

    Thanks for taking the time to stop by  FocusOnStyle !

    I'm the editor in chief and resident fashion + style expert  with over 25 years experience in the fashion biz as a stylist, syndicated fashion advice columnist, and web entrepreneur.

    I hope you love the best of women's fashion and top style trends as much as I do.

    More important, I want to help you make the most of what YOU've got !

    I want your personal style to be organic to you, flattering to your body type , and not contrived or cookie-cutter but a natural extension of just one of the many things that you do everyday, including what you wear to work.

    As your style mentor , I share insider tips & tricks to help YOU get the awareness to do it yourself and stand out from the pack.

    Yup, it's about discovering the D.I.Y. stylist in YOU!

    That’s what I’m here for. To empower you to get it going on.

    Back in 1999, I founded the site as a 24/7 platform where anyone can get expert stylist advice, fashion tips, and style trends to make the most of what they've got... long before the term "fashion blog" became part of our language.

    If you are new to the FocusOnStyle, a good place to start is with my series of free online fashion and style guides , curated from some of our post popular topics. If you have any questions that you would like considered to be answered on the fashion blog, please ask for  fashion advice here .

    Get Free Style Updates

    Don't miss out. Hop on my newsletter to make the most of what you've got!  Passport to French Chic is my gift to you.

    As a stylist I'm about YOU, not me.

    I'm not about gushing over  celebrity style  or preening over a picture of a cute outfit that I or my team is wearing. I do use style icons, from wherever they may be, as a launch point to help YOU tweak to chic to bring  red carpet fashion  to your closet, in a way that makes sense for YOU!  We call that, " I'll Have What She's Having " around here. We look at the runway to inspire you to stay on top of your game, because as a New Yorker, I personally know that looking modern is the best revenge! When you want style motivation , FoS has that too!

    Style shouldn't have an expiration date...

    We know that great style is not only for teenyboppers, and age-appropropropriate & ageless style  doesn't mean dowdy. Consider FoS as a go-to resource for how to wear and what to wear (almost) anything at any age with high, yet definable style that suits your lifestyle.

    Pretty, sexy chic is the NEW fabulous, and it's right at , online since 1999.




    If you want to work with me closer, I have a few V.I.P. one on one stylist spots that I open up periodically.
