ChantelJeffries

She’s amassed a huge following on social media, thanks to her gorgeous looks, her killer style and her past romance with Justin Bieber.

But make no mistake, Chantel Jeffries is a bona fide star in her own right. She’s a DJ, a model and a successful You Tuber. The stunner is also a brand ambassador to the trendy online store Pretty Little Things.

Check out seven times Chantel proved to the world she’s a fashion force that can’t be messed with.

1. Fishnet X Ripped Denim x Cropped Hoodie

Chantel wore this eye catching look during a trip to the UK. The blonde beauty layered ripped black denim over matching hued fishnets. I love the idea of fishnets – it takes a revealing look and makes it more understated but still keeping it sexy. She made the look casual with a bold orange cropped hoodie, adding converse sneakers and a beanie. Chantel, who wore her locks sleek and loose, finished off the look with a mini Givenchy purse.

2. Satin X Denim

This next look is great for a date night, girls evening out or just when you’re feeling fancy. I love the look of silky pieces – and this blush colored set is so perfect! The Pretty Little things two-piece featured a low-cut top with an asymmetrical skirt. The stunner gave the glamorous look a casual touch by wearing a light wash denim jacket. For this night out, Chantel chose simple but oh so classic strappy cream heels. She held tight to a furry blush clutch and rocked a fringed hairstyle to round out her look.

3. Red X Black

Chantel showed off her flat stomach in another flawless look – she paired a black button up crop top with matching denim bottoms. The blonde added a black and red satin bomber jacket with a patterned scarf-style choker. She also wore a delicate gold chain to finish off her look. The star, who posed with King Bach, kept her makeup minimal and styled her hair with a deep side part.

4. Satin robe X Choker X Heels

In November, Chantel wowed in a blush and white colored frock – which resembled a robe. The beauty looked so glamorous in the knee-length number, adding a sparkling choker and strappy nude heels. She styled her hair half up half down with pink lined lips.

5. Lace Up Leggings

The DJ showed off her incredible curves in lace up leggings, pairing it with a matching hued crop top. The stunner chose an elegant sleeveless white vest with gold pointed heels for a pop of color. Chantel wore a tie up choker around her neck for a sexy touch. She also decided to keep her tresses sleek, which keeps the sophisticated and very grown up. If you aren’t comfortable showing that much stomach, find a pair of lace up bottoms that sit higher on your waist.

6. White on White

Chantel showed us why you can still wear white after Labor Day – the model wore a low-cut neutral bodysuit with high-waisted flared bottoms, adding strappy cream heels and a gold necklace. This look is great because it really show’s off the shape of a woman’s body but in a very flattering way. The bodysuit tucks everything in while the loose bottoms keeps the waistline comfortable. The waist looks small and with your low-cut top, it’s still super sexy.

7. Loose Turtleneck Dress X Fringed Heels

This next look is great for nights you want to look hot but still super comfortable. Chantel chose a loose-fitting turtleneck that grazed her thighs. She paired the piece with funky neutral heels featuring a fringed element. The result is effortless but still hot – those legs will be the stars of the show!

The blonde beauty rocked a patterned crop top with black high waisted jeans. Jennifer chose a high-neck cropped blouse that also had short sleeves. She slipped on fitted bottoms, adding a skinny belt and black sandals to round out her chic look. Since she flashed her midriff, it’s important to balance it with a high-neck top and high-waisted bottoms.

3.Denim on Denim

The actress always looks so put together – and this look is another hit! Jennifer decided to double up on denim – breaking up the jean on jean action with a black blouse. Make sure when choosing denim, pick fitted bottoms and a loose – aka oversized – jacket. This combination makes it look more effortless as well as still very streamlined. She hit the pavement in chunky wedge heels while sporting a gray beanie over her blonde tresses.

4.LRD X Blazer

This next look is not only sexy, it’s also so simple to recreate. The key to this look is choosing a red dress that is fitted and curve hugging. Layer on top a structured black coat with strappy heels. To complete the daytime or evening look, simple paint your lips a deep red like Jennifer.

5.Patterned Mini X Chunky Heels

Earlier this month, I headed to Las Vegas and I have to say the weather was perfect! It was hot yes but not unbearably so.  Which is why I’m so glad I got this dress for my trip! It’s from Naked Wardrobe – the You’ll Look Back Dress for $34. I can’t find the black version anymore on their website but the mauve one is on sale right now for $25.

vegas2vegas3The dress is good for all shapes and sizes and it’s easily adjusted by just tightening or loosening the straps.  It was so comfortable and although you can’t see it, I added Adidas sneakers to stay comfortable. I walked so much that day I’m glad I did.  Such a great day or night dress – I’m in love!

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.

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.

Kendall Jenner is a big fan of leopard print – the model is often seen rocking the trend. The 20-year-old loves adding the bold pattern to her outfits – check out four different animal printed looks Kendall sported.

+ Black and Lace

The runway star chose to make the jacket the main attraction for her look – and she did so by keeping the rest of her look in black.  To add even more edge to her sexy daytime look, the beauty finished if off with a choker.

Leopard X Leopard

kendall-jenner-leopard-dress-and-jacket-model-styleThe model chose a spaghetti strap animal print dress with a similar printed jacket on top.  The key to this look is to pick pieces with different designs but the same pattern – so it doesn’t look like a uniform. Kendall added a Chanel purse with a delicate choker and patent boots.

+ Loose Bottoms and a Crop Top

Kendall decided to add a touch of leopard to her airport look by stepping out in patterned booties. The stunner decided to go for sporty pieces, including loose bottoms with a mesh crop top. The shoes are a great way to add the pattern in a subtle yet sophisticated way.

+ Nude Shoes and Wavy Hair

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.

Model Style: 6 Style Tricks from Chrissy Teigen

Oct
20

Chrissy Teigen always looks stylish and so put together in classic looks and colors. The gorgeous model, 30, is an expert on how to look sexy without trying too hard.

She’s consistently chosen pieces that are neutral tones – but once and a while she’ll choose a crazy patterned piece or in a bold color. No matter what she wears, she always looks elegant! Check out six style tricks to dress like Chrissy Teigen.

1.Oversized Knit X Thigh Highs

chrissy-teigen-knitted-sweater-thigh-high-boots-model-style

Chrissy is a big fan of thigh high boots – she wears them often – especially with an oversized dress.  Thigh highs are one of the sexiest shoes out there. Even though they cover most of your leg, it makes your thighs look great and adds that sensual quality to your outfit.

Chrissy chose an oversized knitted sweater and added shorts underneath for safe measure. You can choose any color – but keep it simple with no patterns – for the knitted top. Make sure you don’t wear any jewelry because it will distract from the simplicity of the look.

2.Fitted Dress X Oversized Satin Coat

The fitted dress and silky coat is another signature look for Chrissy. It is literally one of the most timeless and flattering looks you can wear. It will always been in style and can worn for any occasion. Like Chrissy, keep the colors in the neutral tones – white, black, gray, khaki, pink – these hues can be mixed and matched.

You can also play with the hemline length of the jacket as well as the cut of the dress. Notice how Chrissy always chooses daring heels – like the lace up ones she rocked with the gray/khaki look or the lattice pair she wore with the pink on pink ensemble.

3.Sheer Turtleneck X Suede Skirt

Sheer turtleneck bodysuits are definitely having a moment – and with good reason. They give your look a sexy touch without trying too hard. To keep her ensemble sophisticated, Chrissy wore a camisole beneath the mesh number. She contrasted the black bodysuit with a suede skirt in a deep tan color.

Although her top half is covered by the long-sleeved one-piece, she balanced it out with a skirt that has a deep thigh slit. She rounded it out with strappy black heels.

4.Crop Top X Trousers

chrissy-teigen-crop-top-trousers

Crop tops can be dressed up with trousers – as seen on Chrissy. The slacks give the charcoal crop top that classy touch.

Crop tops are typically worn for casual occasions or maybe a night on the town – but the beauty showed us how to rock it for a fancy evening. Add a structured black blazer with pointed heels to finish off the smart yet sexy look.

5. Neutral Suit X White Tank

The typical business suit is either black or gray, but in the this case go out of your comfort zone and try a brighter hue. Chrissy chose a blush colored blazer and trouser set – adding a simple tank top. The unusual color makes the look more youthful and relaxed, especially when paired with the tank. Add a unique necklace like the star and also a bold pair of heels. The silver bottoms add the perfect pop to the tailored look.

6. Pattern X Color To Basic Pieces

This final look is how to take a simple combo of denim with a black top and make it stand out. Since it’s fall, you can swap the shorts out for long jeans – the combo is what is key. She paired the off-the-shoulder top and jean bottoms with a mustard hued jacket.

She wore the cover up off her shoulders, which complemented the look nicely. Chrissy stepped out in leopard printed heels – adding dimension and some fun to her look.

Bodysuit and leggings from Sorella boutique / Steve Madden Cut out boots (similar) / Celine sunglasses (similar)/ Forever 21 earrings

Sorella boutique is one of my favorite stores in LA (they also have a wide selection online). The bodysuit and leggings I got from their store front on Melrose. If you’re ever in LA, I recommend popping in there.  I also met the founder Heather Sanders during one of the visits – she was soooo sweet and wow she is absolutely stunning!

Anyways not only do they have cute clothes but their pieces are great for all sizes.  They have a wide range of sizes and items that fit curvier girls as well. The bodysuit and leggings are no longer available but they have similar pieces that I’ve linked here and here.  This look I wore for a casual Sunday.

I added the hoops and Celine’s for a glamorous touch to the simple look. I chose a chunkier shoe because I wanted to keep the look casual.
