Model Style: 6 Style Tricks From Sara Sampaio


Portuguese model and Victoria’s Secret Angel Sara Sampaio has definitely reached supermodel status, which should come as no surprise, considering she is absolutely stunning.  The 24-year-old model is definitely a natural when it comes to street style, and you can dress like Sara too!  Check out 6 style tricks to dress like Sara Sampaio!

1.Denim X Thigh High Heels

This is such a sexy day or night look. Sara is wearing ripped high waisted jeans, a simple white t-shirt with a leather jacket layered on top.  She put in that “wow” factor with her thigh high laser cut heels.  The statement making heels are such an edgy addition to her minimalist look–it takes it from casual to sexy.  Heels like this will look good with skirts, shorts, dresses–no matter what, you will turn heads.  She kept her hair and make up to a minimum, which keeps the look from being too high fashion and makes it both day or night appropriate. The leather jacket and ripped jeans are also simple ways to make the look less preppy.

2. All Black Day and Night

Sara is a big fan of wearing all black. Why?  Keeping the whole look black will always look chic.  In the first photo, Sara wears BCBG at NYFW–black crop top, leather jacket, culottes and strappy heels.  The crop top is a good choice because it not only breaks up all the black but it also adds a sexy touch to the look.  The red lips is a nice pop of color to the all black ensemble.

In this next look. Sara wore an all black daytime look. She wore a black collared top, ripped shorts, a black purse and sneakers.  She mixed several different textures, making this the perfect all black day look.  Her short shorts are really flattering, showing off both her legs and stomach–if you don’t feel comfortable showing off both areas, just choose one and it will still look just as good.  The loose top is a great way to balance all of the skin showing and keep this look casual.

3. Add a Pop of Red

In this next look, Sara wore ripped denim, cut out heels, a black crop top and a red leather jacket.  She usually opts for simple pieces, but always has a piece with a “wow” factor.  In this case, the red jacket is what makes this look unforgettable.  She shows off her midriff, but keeps the look still casual by wearing ripped boyfriend jeans.  I love that she cuffed the ripped jeans, making it look super put together.

4. All White X Metallic Accents

When she’s not wearing all black, Sara loves to pair all white pieces with metallic shoes.  The all white look is so classic and effortless.  In the first look, she chose white capri trousers and a tucked in top, which makes it look like a jumper.  She added a pop of metallic by choosing silver heels and gold bracelets.  The look is minimalistic and youthful, and each piece can be wore again and again in different ways.

She wore another white look to an event, this time choosing a revealing crop top, pairing it with a loose-fitted knee length skirt.  Sara is really good at balancing her outfit–it never looks too revealing or too modest–it’s always the perfect amount of skin to fit ratio.  She added a bold lip and gold strappy heels to her all white look.

5. 70s Chic

Sara looks amazing in this next look, wearing high waisted flared jeans, a simple black crop top, red lips and funky green sunglasses.  The top and jeans are simple pieces but add in the chain link purse, red lips and sunglasses, and you got a unique look that will make you stand out.  It’s classic with a twist!

6. Two Piece Set

Sara loves simplicity with a kick and in the next OOTD, she chose a matching crop top and skirt set with a fun pattern.  The white and black two piece looks so polished together–perfect for work, a date or a fancy event.  Nude heels are an easy way to make your legs look long and will also lean you out–it also keeps the attention on the outfit.  She kept her accessories to a minimum, because it would get too busy, especially with that pattern.

5 Ways to Style a Gray T-Shirt


Gray is one my favorite colors besides black, because it’s timeless and it always looks so cool.  It’s a must have basic piece that needs to be in every girl’s wardrobe.  Check out 5 different ways to wear a simple gray t-shirt!

1.Gray Tee X Jeans X Nude Heels

This is the simplest combination and one of the easiest to put together: a gray t-shirt paired with skinny jeans and nude heels.  Kendall Jenner’s gray t-shirt look can be worn day to night.  The heels add the perfect touch of sexy to the classic pieces and definitely makes a statement. Since the jeans are super fitted, Kendall kept her t-shirt untucked, which gives it nice effortlessly cool vibe.

2.Gray Shirt X Patterned Skirt

Blogger Jules Sarinana (@SincerlyJules) wears a gray t-shirt with a purple floral skirt.  The combination of the basic tee and the patterened skirt works well because they complement each other.  Since the skirt is loud, she kept the gray shirt untucked to help tone it down. She kept the look casual by adding black flats and aviators as well as a simple gold necklace.

3.Gray Shirt X Pencil Skirt

Miranda Kerr wears probably one of my favorite combos: gray shirt, black pencil skirt and lace up heels.  This is a great date night look as well as a night on the town kind of outfit.  The lace up heels are so sexy and make any outfit look unforgettable.  The black pencil skirt is so flattering and feminine, the opposite of the casual tee. Miranda tucks in her tee which is perfect for this look because it makes you look really put together.

4.Gray Tee X Blazer X Jeans

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley always looks so chic when she’s photographed, and one of her favorite pieces to wear is a simple blazer.  A blazer is a great “fancy” piece–whenever you add it to a look, it instantly makes your outfit look event or work ready.  She wore a gray shirt with her black blazer and jeans.  The shirt is messily tucked in and she added black sunglasses, a gold choker and a Givenchy bag.  She kept her accessories simple because she wanted to keep her look toned down but classically chic.

5.Gray T-Shirt X White Jeans X Leather Jacket

Cara Delevingne looks so cool in her gray shirt, black leather jacket and boots, paired with white jeans.  The jacket and boots are a great way to toughen up the look and make it less preppy.  The half-tucked shirt in the white jeans looks great with the small black belt and handbag.  She kept the badass vibe by choosing dark eye makeup as well.

THE Fall Combo To Try: Boho Dress X Boots!


Boho Dress And Boots The Lifestyle ReporterSummer is coming to an end, which means it’s time for some fall fashion.  Lately, I’ve been really loving the combination of boho dresses with booties.  The combo is fun, youthful and effortlessly chic.  The best part is that it’s all about comfort.  Check out three different ways you can try this combo!

1.Western Inspired

Model Candice Swanepoel wears a gorgeous blue patterned boho dress with tan booties.  The Western inspired combo is the perfect fall OOTD–feminine, vintage inspired and so timeless.  The bright colored dress is a nice change from wearing neutrals and the tan boots give the outfit a very relaxed vibe.

2. Stripes X Ankle Boots

In this next look, Gigi Hadid takes a striped shirtdress and pairs with it with black ankle boots.  She left a few buttons open on her dress and left her hair down–making it a sexy take on the boho dress.  The dress is loose and not the most form fitting, but leaving a few buttons open and having that tie around the waist makes it subtle and sexy.

3. Vintage Vibes

Kate Bosworth chose a vintage inspired boho dress and paired it with black pointed boots.  The 60’s inspired dress has a lot of great detailing including the unique pattern and the peep of skin at the midriff.  This dress is more form fitting than Candice and Gigi’s but it still is that gorgeous combo of boots with a boho dress.  The sunglasses are another great way to add that vintage touch to the look.
