STYLED by Sam Saboura

I have to preface this post by saying that I think Sam is one of the finest stylists on the planet. I had the honor of co-authoring his book, Sam Saboura’s Real Style: Style Secrets for Real Women with Real Bodies, and we became lasting friends during the process. I admire him as a professional and I adore him as a human being, so it is with great pleasure that I write about what he’s up to now.

Sam is a sought-after fashion expert and stylist for the Hollywood elite, and he has devoted his career to bringing out the best in women. He has made dazzling style transformations on ABC’s “Extreme Makeover” and TLC’s “Real Simple. Real Life.” And now, his skill and savvy combine with affordability as he launches his new womenswear collection—STYLED by Sam Saboura—exclusively on HSN.

A firm believer that style should be easy, approachable, and unintimidating, Sam has designed an exciting line of modern separates to help women discover and maximize their own personal style. On trend but never trendy, the focus is on fit, function, and fabulous style. Each piece has been created to appeal to all ages and sizes, strategically designed to flatter the body and highlight a woman’s best assets. The collection includes softly structured knits that drape beautifully to make dressing positively effortless. Washed faux-leather jackets deliver an elegant look and feel, offering an instant update to any wardrobe. A brilliant color palette of fuchsia, teal, and moss green complements basic black and dark denim, creating a glamorous look that’s easy to wear. And because STYLED is designed from a fashion expert’s point of view, it’s like having your very own stylist on hand to dress you flawlessly season after season.

Here’s one of my favorite pieces from his collection:

It’s All about Color

I love how an unexpected pop of color can take a black dress to a new level…a little fun, a little playful.


You can never be too rich…too thin…or have too many black pants

Yes, I have way too many black pants, and that’s not likely to change any time in the near future. Black bottoms are essential components of my wardrobe–dare I say it?…of any baby-boomer woman’s wardrobe–and I just plain enjoy collecting variations of them.


Anthropologie’s protean crops are my latest love. They look great with bare legs and heels…with tights and short boots…with flats…making them a great building block for a fall wardrobe.
