Huda Beauty Red Sweatsuit OOTD

I’ve always been a fan of Huda Kattan and her Huda Beauty empire for a while now. Not only do I love her makeup collection, but she’s also got an impeccable sense of style. She always knows exactly how to dress her amazing figure and keep the look oh-so-glamorous.

Huda Beauty Red Sweatsuit OOTD

Last month, Huda Instagrammed a photo of herself sporting a red sweatsuit set from Sorella boutique. You can purchase the cropped hoodie with the drawstring bottoms on their website or in store at their boutique in Los Angeles. It’s currently sold out but they’re really good about restocking. It’s called the Sorella Don’t Sweat It Sweatsuit – Red, for $40. There’s also sets in cream, brown, olive, grey and white.

The makeup entrepreneur added a Wolford Netsation long sleeve top – which is a great way to cover up more skin but still keep the look sexy. The hoodie is really cropped – some days you just don’t feel like having your stomach out and adding the fishnet top is a great way to cover up. To purchase the exact fishnet top Huda is wearing, click here.

While Huda added Balenciaga boots, there’s a multitude of less expensive options out there that look similar. I love these $53 boots I found on Asos.com by New Look

Finish off the look with hoop earrings and you’ve got a stylish and glam take on the sweatsuit trend.

I professed my love for Sorella Boutique in the past and its still going strong. They have a wide selection of velvet pieces, but there were a few that really caught my eye. Their camel colored velvet choker is gorgeous and understated – and it’s only $15.

My favorite item from Sorella Boutique is the $52 grey chained velvet bustier belt. I am in love! It is the perfect item to make a simple T-shirt or sweater edgy and sensual.

Kim Kardashian started the trend of the corset and T-shirt and I am obsessed.

Trend Alert: Lingerie Inspired Pieces

Nov
13

Wearing lingerie inspired pieces – or straight up lingerie – incorporated in your outfit – is one of the sexiest trends right now. While there are many ways to wear lingerie in public, check out three ways you can rock the daring pieces while still looking chic, elegant but oh so sexy!

Bodysuit and Jeans

This look is for bold women out there! Khloe Kardashian chose a Gooseberry Intimates bodysuit (you can purchase the exact black one she wears here and the exact white one here for $139) with skinny jeans. The one-piece hugs her curves perfectly while the denim makes the look daytime appropriate and effortlessly cool. She wore the black bodysuit with distressed denim from her Good American jean line, layers of chokers and brown lip liner.

Khloe wore the white bodysuit (link to purchase here) by Gooseberry Intimates with light wash denim bottoms and a matching jacket, adding white mules and large black sunglasses. The pink lipstick is the perfect color for this look – it breaks up all the white and blue.

Lacy Dress X Jacket

Kim Kardashian wore a lingerie inspired dress during Paris Fashion Week. The brunette paired the white number with a matching hued silky jacket that she left off one shoulder. She cinched the outfit with a corset-style belt and added layers of gold jewelry.

Kim wore another lingerie inspired look, this time a silky black dress with lace trim. You can buy this exact piece from MyStyleMode for only $59.99. She added a sporty oversized jacket with strappy heels and oversized sunglasses. Make sure to pull your hair back into a ponytail like Kim and don’t wear any earrings or necklaces.

Lace Bralette X Lace Shirt

Taylor Hill wore a black bra with a sheer lacy white shirt on top. To balance out the see-through pieces, Taylor wore a black mini skirt. The top is long sleeved yet sheer- so you still show some skin without it being too much. The skirt is a great piece to wear with this look because it covers up your stomach while still showing off your legs.

Gold hoop earrings is making a comeback in the fashion world. The simple yet sexy jewelry look has been a go-to favorite for a multitude of fashionistas and trend setters.  Hoop earrings can add that glamorous touch to any look.

While the hoop size is entirely up to you, personally I think go big or go home. Check out three gorgeous celebs rocking the hoop earrings trend.

Trend Alert: Baseball Caps

Mar

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.

SoSorella.com has a hat that says ‘Girls Tour’ – it’s so dope – it comes in black or pink for $25 each.

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.

Dec
01

Sweater weather is officially underway! Although I do miss summertime, I am looking forward to wearing my favorite knits once again.  The latest trend in winter fashion has got to be wearing oversized sweaters.  While the loose-fitted nature can be off-putting to some, it can actually be quite sexy.  It’s all about how you style your sweater.  To find out ways to wear an oversized sweater this fall/winter, keep reading!

1.Oversized Sweater X Thigh Highs

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). The key to this look is to make sure the sweater is long enough where it will cover your butt and that your thigh highs go high enough.  The light tone of the sweater perfectly compliments the black of the shoes and handbag.  This is a simple, minimalistic look that is so sexy!

If you want to try out this look at a more budget friendly price, check out this cream sweater from Naked Wardrobe for $42. and these Steve Madden thigh highs from Nasty Gal for $150.

2.Oversized Sweater X Loose Skirt

Selena Gomez donned a taupe hued oversized turtleneck, pairing it with a camel colored loose skirt and white pumps. She’s wearing a Tory Burch knit (currently on sale for $177) and skirt (sold out). This look is all about fit–the top and skirt are loose. Both pieces have large slits on the sides, making this look subtly sexy. By pairing them with pumps, you’re showing a lot of leg, but in a really classy way.

I found a similar turtleneck on Naked Wardrobe, and it’s only $62! Forever 21 has a gorgeous skirt for $17.90.

Gigi Hadid sported an oversized turtleneck sweater that looked so cozy and classic.  She paired it simply, with black leggings and heeled booties.
