Aug
15

Instead of grabbing black pieces for your go-to wardrobe this summer, take a chance and rock all red. The bold color looks incredible on all skin tones and it will definitely make you stand out in a crowd.  Check out three different but equally amazing ways to sports all red this summer!

1.Hailey Baldwin

Hailey stunned in an off-the-shoulder red top with a matching high-waisted skirt. The model chose the perfect skirt for this look-it featured a thigh slit that balanced the length.  She added lace up cream heels to lengthen her legs and break up the bright colored look.  With this type of outfit, keep the hair and makeup simple so that the bold color is front and center.

2.Bella Hadid

Bella stood out in her off-the-shoulder ribbed crop top with matching joggers. The model’s look is a modern twist on sweat pants.  The drawstring bottoms show off her tiny waist and the strapless top is still really feminine and flattering. Add a choker and combat boots for an edgy touch to the bold ensemble.

3. Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez took a more casual approach to the all red look. The pop star chose a red hoodie, pairing it with fitted sweat bottoms. Since the sweatsuit is super relaxed, she balanced it perfected with strappy white heels. She styled her dark tresses back and opted to add large framed sunglasses to finish off her chic airport look.

Taylor Hill has such a great sense of style- she always looks so cool and effortless while out and about. The 20-year-old Victoria’s Secret Angel has been a fixture on runways for years now. Keep reading to find out six style tricks from the stunning and ever so fashionable Taylor Hill.

1.White X Plaid X Lace

The stunner knows how to layer pieces that give off that effortless cool girl vibe. She chose a black bralette, adding a white dress on top with a plaid flannel tied around her waist.  Taylor finished off her look with a red bandana tied around her neck like a choker and a black cross body bag. This is an easy look to recreate this summer – it’s sexy but it doesn’t look like you tried hard. I love the look with a top knot- it just adds to that effortless vibe. Finish it off with combat boots for the perfect festival inspired ensemble.

2. Graphic Tee X Blush

Taylor kept it casual in a graphic T-shirt, which she opted to tuck into a blush hued skirt. The skirt and shirt really balance each other well. Make sure to tuck your shirt into your skirt like Taylor – it makes it look very put together. I love the pink color-it’s so summer casual and it can be re-worn in many different ways. Pull you hair into a high ponytail and keep your makeup minimal for a nice casual daytime ensemble.

3. Bodysuit X Skirt X Choker

Taylor looked amazing in a black bodysuit with a a white denim skirt, adding a choker and sneakers. Its sexy but still daytime appropriate. Pull you hair into a top knot like Taylor and keep your makeup on the lighter side – lipgloss, defined brows and a touch of eye shadow.

She’s wearing a Flynn Skye bodysuit, which is available here for $97.

4. Flannel X Jeans

This next look is a very easy to recreate for a casual day out. Ripped jeans with a fitted white tank is a simple combo, but Taylor upped the look with a blue and white flannel shirt, a bandana as a choker and a baseball cap. She added nude shoes to break up the blue tones. The choker and hat are great touches to such a casual ensemble-it adds that needs oomph.

5. Camo X Ripped Jeans X Red

Taylor looked flawless in ripped cropped jeans with a matching white crop camisole, layering a knotted camouflage shirt on top.  The key to this look is layers. The hint of the camisole breaks up the patterned top perfectly. To add a pop of color, make sure to grab a bold hued purse — Taylor chose a red Saint Laurent bag. To finish it off, she added a black belt and white slip-on sandals. Pull her hair up in a top knot and keep your makeup neutral like Taylor.

She wore the braless top with a strategically placed white cardigan that she tied into a knot. The result is a daring but modern twist on an evening look. Taylor styled her brunette tresses with voluminous curls and rocked smokey brown eye makeup and pink lips.

Lily — the 17-year-old daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis — always looks so effortlessly cool. She tends to choose bold statement pieces for her nighttime looks and opts for classic ones for daytime.

Keep reading to find out six style tricks to dress like the stunning Lily-Rose Depp.

1.Tube Top X Jeans X Choker 

Lily-Rose looked amazing in a Chanel tube top, pairing it with jeans and high heels. Tube tops are definitely underrated – they were big a few years ago and are slowly coming back into mainstream. They show off your decolletage and shoulders in a very understated sexy way – a definite must have.

Choose a colorful look like the teen and pair it with light wash denim to dress it down. The jeans make the look casual and youthful. The choker balances out the strapless top and adds an edgy touch to the colorful look.  Make sure to pull your hair back into a top bun like Lily-Rose so the focus is on the tube top and choker.

2. Gray Tee X White Shorts

This is such a simple yet classic look.  Most people would immediately choose their blue denim shorts this summer but why not try white ones?  Lily-Rose styled her light-hued bottoms with a plain gray top and white socks and sneakers.  It’s a quick and easy summer ensemble. To add a fun touch, wear round or reflective sunglasses like her.

3. Cream Motorcycle Jacket 

Instead of grabbing a black motorcycle jacket, why not choose a neutral hued one? That’s exactly what Lily-Rose did, and it looks so effortless and chic. She wore the cover up layered on top of a white hoodie and white tee. The model wore the piece with low-rise light wash jeans and sneakers, topping it off with two delicate necklaces and sunglasses.  It’s a great look for daytime but can be easily made nighttime ready by swapping the shoes out for heels and the backpack for a clutch.

The key to this look is choosing a feminine dress – i.e. ruffles and pairing it with a bold jacket and bright lips. Make sure to pull your hair back and have the jacket sitting perched on your shoulders for the finishing touches.

The Ultimate Airport Look By Olivia Culpo

May
26

Olivia Culpo has never had a fashion miss in my book – she always dresses impeccably! And always with a touch of edge! Last month the former Miss Universe 2012 shared an Instagram post before flying out to Vegas wearing one of my favorite airport looks.

OliviaCulpoThe brunette beauty wore a loose-fitting white T-shirt with dark blue cut-off shorts and thigh high boots. The 24-year-old added a gold buckled belt, a Chanel purse and a leather jacket.

The key to this outfit is to make it look effortless – and that’s done by casually tucking the front of the top into the shorts. Olivia’s boots change the look from simple to wow. Just make sure your boots aren’t that high and still comfortable for a flight.

She pulled her locks back into a high bun and finished it off with vintage-inspired sunglasses. It’s the perfect stylish airport look.

Selena gomez

Selena Gomez is very versatile with her style – one day she’s rocking a sleek top with skinny jeans and heels and then next she’s sporting a bodysuit with ripped denim. Check out three different Selena Gomez looks that can you try this weekend!

1.All Black

Selena chose to rock an all black ensemble, opting for skinny jeans, a loose sleeveless blouse and strappy heels.  The key to this look is the fit of each piece. She chose skintight bottoms, pairing it with a loose blouse with a long hemline. The two balance each other out perfectly. The heels add that understated sex appeal and really pulls the whole look together. This is a really simple look – but if you’re in a rush and you need to look chic but not like you tried to hard – then this is your look.

2. Lace up X Denim

Once again, Selena shows us how versatile she is. The beauty wore a black lace up bodysuit with a denim shirt, oversized blazer and thigh high boots. She made the revealing bodysuit and mini skirt daytime chic by adding a loose fitting jacket and boots that cover practically her entire legs.  The result is a ladylike but sexy take on lace ups – once again proving that she’s a trendsetter.

3. Neutral Trench coat X Flared Jeans

This is another great weekend look and perfect for spring. Selena paired flared denim with a pale blue crop top and a suede trench coat. The coat balances the midriff-baring top; she rolled the sleeves which makes it more daytime wearable. The flared bottoms and sunglasses are great ways to incorporate vintage inspired touches to any look.  She pulled her brunette locks back into a center parted ponytail and kept her makeup minimal – so that the look is fresh, simple and classic.

Trend Alert: Baseball Caps

Mar
15

Baseball caps are one of my favorite trends this year because it gives an urban feel to any look and it instantly makes your outfit look effortlessly cool.  You can wear it with a dress, jeans and a t-shirt or a jumpsuit – the options are endless. Check out four ways to wear a baseball hat!

1.Leggings 

One of the easiest ways to style a baseball cap is to pair it with leggings and a crop top. The leggings + crop top combo is an understated sexy – as long as you keep the bottoms high waisted. Kourtney Kardashian wore a matching set with a leather baseball cap in black, finishing it off with a denim jacket. The denim is a great way to break up all the black and also add texture.

Kylie wore a white leather baseball cap with a matching hued crop top and black bottoms. The black X white color scheme is classic and will never go out of style. Both ladies kept it casual in sneakers but you could definitely swap them out for heels and wear this look in the evening as well.

2. Dress X Heels

Rihanna looked amazing in her silky dress, heels and baseball cap! She pulled her hair back into a bun beneath the hat, showing off her décolletage.  The cap adds that nice touch of edge to the fancy pieces.  This look is sexy and so chic.  The hat gives the outfit a bit of mystery while balancing out the pieces.

3. Black X Gold

I love wearing Nike/Adidas/Puma hats – they aren’t ‘trendy’ hats — trendy hats usually go out of style in a few months. Nike/Adidas/Puma hats are classic pieces -something every girl should have.  I love adding that sporty/urban element to my looks because I feel like it gives me more confidence and sass.

For this look, wear all black with gold accessories, and add a cream hued baseball cap.  Black with gold jewelry always looks good together – they balance each other out.  The red nails and lips make the look more glam – it will definitely turn heads.  Each part of this ensemble is a classic look on its own and so when you put them together, it just works!

4. Denim X Denim

I have so many hats from my favorite sports teams. I used to only wear them when I went to the gym.  These days, my sports hat serve as the finishing touch to my outfits.  Kendall Jenner wore a chambray top tucked into jeans for a causal but streamlined daytime ensemble.  She added a NY Yankees hat, which made the look less preppy and more effortlessly cool.
