Feb
17

Jasmine Tookes is definitely one of my favorite models. The 25-year-old is not only gorgeous, she always dresses on point.  Her personal style is all about keeping things simple while still showing off her amazing figure.  The California-born beauty tends to choose classic pieces with a focus on the fit.  Keep reading to find out six style tricks from Jasmine Tookes.

1.Monochrome Set

Jasmine wore a maroon hued asymmetrical top with a pencil skirt, both with a ribbed texture.  She rolled the sleeves of the turtleneck top to show off her gold jewelry accents, which perfectly breaks up the deep red tone.  The Victoria’s Secret stunner added black and white heels as well as a tan handbag. The key to this look is simplicity.  She pulled her hair back and opted for minimal makeup to keep the focus on the monochrome ensemble.

2.Ripped denim

This is the perfect effortless look for day or night. Jasmine is sporting low rise ripped denim with an asymmetrical knitted sweater, showing of her midriff. The beauty added an oversized blazer and adidas sneakers, which make the look effortlessly casual.  This ensemble is a mix of comfort and cool – she balanced it perfectly by pairing the fitted top and jeans with sneakers and an oversized blazer.

3. Black X Camel

This is such a sexy night out look and so easy to recreate. Jasmine wore a low cut bodysuit tucked into a high waisted leather pencil skirt. She broke up the dark hues with a camel colored trench coat, which she elegantly placed over her shoulders. The model pulled her hair back, opting for brown matte lips and lots of shimmer to brighten up the look.  I love how simple and classic this look is – especially the black pumps to finish off the look.

4. Tank Top X Skirt

Jasmine opted for an effortlessly casual look – a gray tank top tucked into the front of a maroon knitted skirt.  The result is a chic, feminine day or night look that’s both classy and sexy.  Just make sure you pick a loose top and only tuck in the front so that it looks more relaxed.  Jasmine finished off her look with black heels and a tan handbag.  Makeup wise, she opted for a minimal look and pulled her hair back, keeping the focus on the elegant outfit.

5. All Black 

When in doubt, just wear all black. You will always look put together just by keeping everything in one color.  The trick though is to make sure the fit is flattering.  Opt for skinny jeans and tuck in a loose top so that you have a defined waist.  Jasmine perched an oversized blazer to make the look more formal, as well as a some peep toe heels.  Jewelry wise, keep it simple as well so that it doesn’t distract from the minimalist look.  A handbag is a great way to add a pop of color and to break up all the dark hues.

6. Black X White X Gold

I love this edgy look – it’s all about mixing colors and textures. Jasmine wore a loose white crop top with leather harem pants, showing off a hint of her midriff. She added a bold color with the light blue bag as well as some sparkle with a simple gold choker.  The choker and leather bottoms are both great pieces to add edge to a look and can be worn in a million ways.  Her heels are a classic must have for any girl – they make your legs and feet look so good.  In this case, make sure to add some subtle smokey eyeshadow to keep with the edgy theme, and pull your hair back so the gold choker is more visible.

Style Inspired: Hailey Baldwin’s Lace Up Shirt & Kendall Jenner’s Blush OOTD

Hailey Baldwin and Kendall Jenner were spotted out and about in Los Angeles wearing two completely different but equally gorgeous looks. Keep reading to find out how to recreate them!

Hailey Baldwin’s Lace-Up T-Shirt X Mini Skirt X Sneakers

Hailey Baldwin Lace Up Shirt Kendall Jenner Blush Skirt Top

The blonde beauty wore a olive hued lace up t-shirt from LF, paired with a cream mini skirt. I am in love with the LF shirt–it’s sporty and sexy without being too revealing.  The fact that it’s a loose top keeps it from being too much for daytime.  Since it’s so oversized, Hailey paired it perfectly with a short skirt–which keeps the focus on the top.

To add even more edge to her look, she added hoop earrings and a large black bag. Her white sneakers keep the look casual with a sporty twist.  She pulled her hair back in a high ponytail, which I think is perfect because you can actually see the lace up detailing that goes all the way up to her neck.

Kendall Jenner’s All Blush Look

Kendall wore a silky blush button up top with a matching mini skirt and boots.  The light pinky nude color is so timeless.  When you wear one color for both your top and bottom, it instantly makes your look chic and polished.  For a nice pop of color, Kendall wore edgy sunglasses and a gray purse. The gray purse is the perfect pop of color to bring some dark tones to the otherwise light hued ootd.

She also chose to leave her shirt half-tucked inside her skirt, which is an easy way to make it look more laid back. The calf-length boots in the same color elongate her legs even more and make the look seamless.  She left her hair down straight, which I think suits the outfit well because it looks more effortless.

Trend Alert: Chokers

Dec
16

Chokers are one of those accessories that will always add that sexy factor.  It can take a polished look and make it instantly effortless and edgy. You can go simple with a black ribbon-style choker or go all out with a blinged out version.  This type of necklace is definitely a nod to the 1990’s but over 25 years later, it’s still a must have piece for any girl’s jewelry box. Check  out five ways to style a choker!

1.Black X White X Gold

Miranda Kerr wowed while at LAX airport last week, pairing a gold studded black and white choker with a dark hued bomber jacket, white crop top and cream colored high-waisted leggings.  She added black pointed boots, a large bag and vintage style sunglasses.  The choker took the neutral toned look and added a nice metallic detail.  The colors of the necklace also tie in the white, cream and black of the outfit perfectly!

2) A Simple Black Choker

Gigi Hadid wore a black ribbon-like choker while out and about in West Hollywood with Zayn Malik.  This is a great way to add an edgy touch in the simplest way–she styled the choker with a black velvet crop top, a leather jacket and high waisted jeans.  This look is so effortlessly cool and so easy to recreate!  Make sure to pull your hair back into a low bun so you can show off the choker!

3) Charm + Choker

Cara Delevingne styled a choker with a large sparkling charm, giving the whole look a pop! This choker is great for adding a unique touch to an all black look and is something that will draw a lot of attention to your décolletage. The slightly off center look is also a good way to make the necklace less formal, perfectly paired with a high bun and red lips.

4) Bandanna Choker

Kylie Jenner added a bandanna to her night out look, pairing it with a black dress, a leather bomber jacket and lace up heels.  She took a folded bandanna and tied it around her neck–adding a cool girl touch to the ensemble.  It can even be done with colorful scarves if you don’t have a bandanna, just fold it diagonal and then fold it over until it becomes the width you want it to be.  This look is great if you want it to look edgy but not vampy.

5) Tie it up

I love the way Gigi styles her chokers–it always looks so effortless. The blonde beauty is wearing a rope-style necklace–meaning it looks like several chokers layered  on top of each other. She added the light blue choker to a white top and duster coat with leather leggings. The light color is a great way to add a sexy touch to a look without making it vampy.  Instead this is an airy, posh look that can add a nice detail to a look. The light color is a nice change and pairs perfectly with the white top and jacket.

Kourtney Kardashian has been lately been slaying on the fashion front–every outfit has been on point and so flattering!  She recently paired a blush hued Yeezy Season 1 Cotton sweater ($499) with black Stuart Weitzman Highland Suede Thigh High Boots ($798).

Nov

A fringed jacket is such a key piece this fall and winter.  Not only is it versatile, it’s also so classic.  From day to night, the piece will add edge and sexiness to your outfit–it’s definitely a show stopper.  Keep reading to find out three ways to wear a fringed jacket this year!

1. Monochrome X Camel 

Miranda Kerr draped her camel hued fringed Saint Laurent Jacket over  a white collared shirt, which she tucked into loose trousers.  She added a pop with her gold and black belt as well as her statement heels.  To make the look more edgy, she left a few unbuttons open, revealing her bralette beneath it. She added a striped clutch with gold and black hues, as well as hoop earrings and round sunglasses. The key to this look is tucking your collared shirt into your trousers, and adding the gold and black accessories for a pop of edge.

For this next look, Miranda wore the same Saint Laurent jacket, but decided to go edgier, opting for all black.  She paired a high neck top with leather leggings and pointed lace up booties. With this look, make sure you choose leggings you’re comfortable in–try a higher waisted one if you don’t want to show that much skin.  But the pop of midriff helps break up the dark vibe of the look.  The heeled boots definitely lengthen the legs and complete the ensemble.  Pull you hair back in a low bun like Miranda to finish off the outfit.

2.  Black x White

Gigi Hadid styled her fringed black leather jacket with white skinny jeans–simple but so gorgeous. The black and white combo never gets old, and she balances it out with black strappy heels. She kept her makeup light and didn’t wear any accessories, which is perfect because you don’t want to distract from the fringed jacket.  For this look, make sure the jeans are fitted as well as the jacket-the most important aspect is the fit–so that it accentuates your body.

3. Ripped Denim

Kendall Jenner rocked a mustard hued fringed jacket–a bold look that she toned down with a white high neck blouse.  The turtleneck is a great winter element but it also breaks up the bright hue.  She aded ripped denim so the look isn’t too clean cut and paired it with a gray beanie and aviators.  The nude pointed heels lengthen her legs and don’t take attention away from the main piece—the jacket.

Model Style: 6 Style Tricks From Emily Ratajkowski

Oct
24

Emily Ratajkowski always looks so put together, successfully balancing sexy and understated. The model/actress has definitely upped her style game, and it shows! The 24-year-old brunette stunner loves to keep her look simple while still form fitting. Keep reading to find out six ways to dress like Emily.

1. Blush Tones

Emily looks amazing in her light pink sleeveless top tucked into a suede blush skirt.  She paired it with shimmery strappy heels and only a few pieces of jewelry, finishing it off with wavy hair and pink lips. The sleeveless top and skirt are timeless pieces that can be re-worn over and over again.  The key is to tuck the top in because it pulls the whole look together.  This outfit can be worn to work, a date, and an event–it’s such a versatile piece.

2. Thigh High Boots X Dress

Thigh high boots are so sexy–they elongate your legs and make you look so tall!  They look so good with mini dresses, as you can see on Emily.  For the first look, she chose a white fitted turtleneck dress, pairing it with black thigh highs. This is a simple outfit idea but so classic. Black and white will always look good no matter what.  If you have dresses that are short and you’re not comfortable showing a lot of legs, pair it with thigh highs–it covers a lot of skin but it’s still sexy.

For the next look, Emily paired a black mini dress with brown thigh high boots and a mustard hued handbag. The brown boots are a nice way to break up the black dress and it also goes so well with a tan.  The dress is literally mid-thigh so make sure it’s on the looser side if you want to wear this look in the daytime.

3. Flared Skirt X Knotted Top

The seventies are back!  Emily rocks a denim button down flared skirt, pairing it with a simpe white tank she knotted on the side.  The t-shirt is a little sheer, revealing her bra underneath.  The model added cream-colored boots and a black handbag.  The look is all about understated sexy.  The loose tank becomes flattering when you make the knot, revealing part of the midriff.  The flared skirt is a great addition to your wardrobe because it highlights the smallest part (the midriff) while being super forgiving in the hips/thigh area because of the flare.

4. Neutrals X Overalls

I love overalls but when it gets cool outside, wearing your summer pair is not the best idea.  One of the most underrated pieces has to be long overalls. It’s a great addition to your wardrobe because it can be styled in multiple ways–you will get great use out of it, if you find a quality pair. Emily chose a gorgeous camel-hued version with black button detailing.  The straight leg denim is actually really chic, when paired correctly.  Try wearing it with the least amount of colors. Emily choose white, camel and black–classic choices.  She paired it with a white long sleeved shirt, layering a camel -colored blazer on top, finishing it off with round sunglasses, a black handbag and chelsea boots.

5. Matching Crop Top X Pencil Skirt

Emily is all about wearing the least amount of colors–and with good reason.  When you wear matching pieces, it automatically looks chic and you look so put together. One of her favorite combos is to pair sleeveless high neck crop tops with matching pencil skirts. It’s so sexy and still classy.  The high neck top balances the midriff showing, while the longer hemline of the skirt balances the exposed arms. For both looks, she added a pop of color with her shoes. In the all black outfit, she chose gold and black strappy heels, while the blush look is paired with black, gold and blush hued pointed heels.  She doesn’t really wear that much jewelry, opting to add a simple gold bangle.

6. Lace Up Bodysuits

Emily loves her lace up bodysuits–yes they are pretty sexy, but you can tone it down with what you pair it with.  She styled them perfectly–by choosing to wear it with loose boyfriend jeans and ballets flats for daytime.  The pieces she paired it with make it risqué but still daytime appropriate.

For night time, choose a autumn inspired color like what Emily is wearing–burnt orange.  The color goes so well with black denim and boots.  The color makes the look fun and so effortles-it’s also a color that looks good on pretty much everyone.
