Oct

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 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

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.

The model paired a grey oversized sweater dress – which showed a hint of one shoulder – with a black cardigan and matching booties. It’s comfortable, sexy and perfect for a a cool fall evening.

The loose element of the look is balanced by the shortness of the dress – giving the ensemble a relaxed and understated sexy vibe. Chrissy wore her hair back into a top knot and focused on highlighter and pink lips for her makeup look.

The bodysuit really makes you streamlined and its so figure flattering. Chrissy has an amazing figure and the bodysuit accentuates her curves. The new mom sported strappy heels – which jazz up the shorts look and give it an elegant touch. To keep the look from being too revealing, she added a long loose fitting sheer cardigan.

1. Blazer X Hat X Mules

Chrissy wore denim cutoff shorts with a white tee, ivory blazer, nude hat and cream colored mules for a day out.  This is a simple look that can also transition into the evening.  The ivory color of the blazer pairs perfectly with a simple white tee, and the hat and mules add dimension to the look.  This outfit is all about different shades of cream and nude, including the finishing touch of a cream colored handbag.  Keep the makeup to a minimum and wear your hair back because this look is all about clean lines and simplicity.

The Hottest Shoe Trend of Summer!

May
29

Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean you have to only wear sandals or open toed shoes.  It’s actually more fun to wear non-sandals during the hot months!  Yes, it might get a little sweaty or warm when your foot is in a sock, but hey, it does look good.  Boots, tennis shoes and thigh highs–aka wearing closed toed shoes–is the hottest trend this summer.  So put away your sandals, and check out 5 ways to wear your closed-toed shoes year round!

1) Combat Boots

Kylie Jenner blew me away with her Coachella outfits and teal hair, but I think my favorite part was the boots–she rocked cream colored Timberland boots.  In the below picture, Kylie was out and about in LA after Coachella and decided to rock a skintight dress, baggy coat, baseball cap, and her Timbs.  The Timbs provide that perfect touch of edge to her look.

In the second photo, Kylie wore her Timbs to Coachella, pairing it with white hot shorts, acrop top, long vest and a baseball cap.  Like the first look, the outfit is super simple, and the boots give a rough vibe to it.  If she wore it with sandals or heels, it would be too feminine and soft–the boots toughen up the whole look.

2) Thigh Highs

Chrissy Teigen wore thigh high boots with a gray tank, denim shorts and a black handbag.  The shorts and tank are really simple, but when you add the thigh high boots, it makes the wholesome look more sexy and more nighttime fancy.  The thigh highs will literally take any shorts and tank combo and make it sexier and so chic.

Selena Gomez’ outfit is similar to Chrissy’s–except the top is 3/4 sleeves and she chose a bib necklace and black thigh highs.  Tucking in her shirt is not only figure flattering, but it shows off the shorts.  She left the back part of the shirt untucked, which gives some coverage, but it adds that effortlessly cool touch to it.

3) Sneakers

Rihanna styled the perfect outfit for a night out if you don’t want to wear heels.  She wore her Nike sneakers with a white bodysuit, denim shorts, red lips and a baseball cap.  She also added a printed backpack, a bodychain, bracelets, a choker and really large hoops.  The key to this look is adding a lot of accessories, like RiRi, and the bold red lip–that’s what will take the sneakers to nighttime chic.

4) Booties

Candice Swanepoel’s outfit is so on point–from her white tank, to her western belt and white wash denim shorts.  The black handbag and snakeskin patterned booties make it such an edgy, fun look.  The booties provide a nice pattern, while the black bag and belt balance out the light top and jeans.  Perfect for a day out of shopping, a date, or school.

In the next photo, Vanessa Hudgens was photographed wearing overalls, a black crop top and baseball cap and studded booties.  Overalls can be toughened up by incorporating a lot of black.  The crop top shows some skin, which makes it sexier than your average overall get up, while the edge is introduced through the boots and hat.

So next time you’re heading out the door in shorts and tank, instead of reaching for sandals or flip flops, pull out your boots or sneakers to change up your look.  These shoes will always make your look sexy yet still so chic!  Let me know which look you like best!

3 Outfits You Have to Try This Week!

Apr
06

Fashion in the springtime means color, color, color!  If you’re not sure what to wear this week, check out these three completely different OOTD’s for some wardrobe inspiration!

1. Jeans X Jeans

Jeans on Jeans is such a effortless look and it’s so chic!  Gone are the days that you have to choose two different shades of denim–this season, it’s all about matching.  Miranda Kerr rocked a light wash denim chambray top with the same shade of jeans, which looks amazing!  To give the outfit a pop of color, she chose some leopard print slip on heels and a black handbag.  Leopard and denim really compliment each other so well, making this outfit a perfect 10! This is an easy look to recreate–just make sure the denim top and jeans are the same shade or just really similar.  The lighter the denim the better–it is springtime! Make sure to finish off the look by rolling the sleeves up of your chambray top-it makes the whole look less formal.

2. Plaid X Stripes

This look is all about mixing patterns and colors. Jessica Alba chose a flannel midi skirt with a striped crop top and a chambray top.  It definitely gives off a nineties vibe, especially with the tennis shoes to finish off the look.  When recreating the look, make sure to choose a striped top that compliments the plaid skirt.  For Jessica, she chose pieces with red, but feel free to pick blue stripes or any other color you like–as long as you choose a plaid skirt with that color in the pattern.  The denim chambray top not only keeps the look from showing too much skin, but it also is the perfect jacket for springtime if you tend to get cold but don’t want to overheat.

3. Blazer X Ripped Jeans

A blazer is typically something you wear to dress up an outfit or to work, but Chrissy Teigen shows us all how to truly rock a blazer and still look casual.  The ripped jeans and tucked in white shirt looks perfect with a embroidered blazer.  The detail on the blazer really gives the whole outfit a retro vibe, especially with the added tan handbag.  To keep this look from being too hippi-esque, Chrissy chose to tuck in her white shirt and wore skinny jeans.  The key to this look is choosing a blazer that isn’t structured or fitted, and making sure to tuck in the tank into the jeans.
