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!

9 Ways to Wear Your Denim Jacket This Weekend!

May

A denim jacket is such a timeless piece and will always be stylish.  It gives any outfit that laidback vibe and is the ultimate summer time piece.  You can add it to a maxi dress, mini dress, skirt, jeans–you name it, it looks good.  If you have a denim jacket and need some outfit inspo, check out these 9 ways to style it.  And if you don’t have one, I’ve listed a couple of great jackets you could purchase.

1. Mini Dress X Denim

Candice Swanepoel wore a simple black mini dress with a denim jacket and hat and looked amazing!  She chose a high neck dress, which balances the whole look.  To give it a more effortless vibe, she wore boots to complete the look. She cuffed her sleeves of her jacket, which is a great way to make the look less preppy.

2. White Cropped Top and Jeans X Denim

Kendall Jenner chose a fitted denim jacket to compliment her white cropped top and skinny jeans.  This is such a sexy chic daytime look but still so casual.  Her Chanel espadrille loafers definitely dress the look down while still keeping it classy.  She kept her accessories to a minimum and the result is perfection!

 3. Stripes X White X Denim 

Kim Kardashian took a business type striped shirt and really made it look sexy!  She wore her striped shirt with her denim jacket cuffed, finishing off the outfit with classic white jeans and nude heels.  I love the way she kept a couple of buttons of the top open of her collared shirt but kept the sleeves buttoned up.  Kim cuffed her jacket which I think is brilliant, because it adds a subtle edgy touch to the overall clean cut look.

4. Maxi Dress X Denim

Miranda Kerr rocked a long black maxi dress with a denim jacket, the perfect look for spring and summer.  Add in some sandals and a patterned bag and you’re ready to go.  For this look, it’s all about adding in bright accessories!  Make sure to roll up the sleeves to keep the look from being too fancy.

5. Black Denim X Blue Denim

Gigi Hadid’s look is such a simple and quick go-to denim jacket look!  She’s rocking a white tee and black jeans–pieces almost everyone has in their wardrobe, and topped it with a light wash denim jacket.  Gigi chose to complete the look with tennis shoes–the perfect shoes for a day out in the city.

 6. Buttoned Up Denim

Sarah Jessica Parker wore her denim jacket completely buttoned, a easy way to make the look edgy.  By adding in ripped jeans and boots and a patterned top peeking out of the bottom of her jacket, SJP completed the look. I don’t really see denim jackets buttoned up that often, but I think it’s quite chic!

 7. Dark Denim X Light Denim

Selena Gomez decided to mix a light wash denim jacket with dark high waisted jeans, finishing it off with a black high neck top, gladiator lace up heels and a bright red bag.  This is such a James Dean inspired look!  Draping the denim jacket keeps the look from being to preppy, instead giving her outfit a cool girl vibe.  The bright bag compliments the dark top and pants, while the heels make the look sexy!

 8. Denim Shirt X Jacket

Beyonce paired a light wash denim jacket with a high waisted denim skirt.  She chose a simple white top and nude heels, along with gorgeous Chanel pins and a cream bag.  Yes the Chanel is amazingly gorgeous but what I love most is how she paired similar colored denim with a simple white tee.  If you want to emulate this look but don’t have Chanel pins (don’t worry I don’t either 🙂  ) add more bling on the arms.  I don’t want to make holes in my jacket anyways ( well, I would for Chanel 🙂 ) so putting more jewelry on the arms will still add that ‘wow’ factor.

 9. Denim X Mesh

This is probably my favorite look of all.  This gorgeous lady is Leomie Anderson, a model and blogger and I absolutely love her style!  She paired a light wash loose denim jacket with similar colored ripped denim shorts.  To make the look edgy, she wore mesh loose top with a bralet underneath.  My favorite part about the look is the all white Adidas sneakers.  It’s such a sporty chic look but also really minimalistic, since she keeps things simple by wearing only white and light wash denim.

I purchased my denim jacket from H & M last year and it’s held up perfectly!  They actually have a sale on their dark wash denim jacket, and I’m not sure how long it’s going to last. They have a couple of different shades but not all are on sale.  Regular price is $29.95.  If you prefer a light wash, check out this light wash denim jacket at H & M.

Urban Outifitters has a light wash denim jacket for $129, and can be purchased here.

Topshop has a gorgeous dark denim wash jacket for $75, as well as a ripped light wash denim for $75.

How To Master The Denim-On-Denim OOTD

Nov
29

Denim on denim is a great look for anyone who loves denim and how it looks paired together.  What I like about denim on denim is how effortless it looks.  Denim will always be “in” style and pairing two denim pieces is a definite win-win!  Check out three different denim-on-denim looks and how you could be styling your jean pieces:

1. Preppy OOTD

Olivia Palermo always looks so polished and put together, and when she wore all denim, it was preppy perfection.  To recreate this preppy OOTD, pair your jeans with a chambray top–make sure one piece is lighter than the other, you don’t want to wear both in the same wash of denim.  I personally like a darker bottom with a lighter chambray top.  Make sure to tuck the front of the top in and roll up the sleeves.  You don’t have to cuff them as high as Olivia, just make sure you cuff it at whatever length you like.  Add sone simple gold necklaces and some cute flat and sunglasses any you’re ready to go.

2. Sexy OOTD

Selena Gomez rocks ripped black jeans with a light wash chambray top and a gray crop top.  This look is perfect when you want to sport an effortless sexy outfit.  You don’t have to choose black jeans, just choose any jeans you have that’s ripped.  Leave the chambray open and make sure to grab a gray crop top–the color is key for this particular look.  Finish it off with aviators and booties!

3. Casual OOTD:

Candice Swanepoel’s outfit is so cute–high waisted shorts, denim jacket and gray crop top–I absolutely love this look!  Choose any type of denim jacket, as long as it’s a different wash from your shorts.  You can still wear shorts in autumn/winter–just wear tights, leggings, etc underneath.  Candice has done jean shorts over black leggings in the past–as well as fellow model Miranda Kerr.  This is a great outfit for when you are going someone casual and you want to wear something simple but different.  Wear some edgy sunglasses and a simple bangle to finish off the look.
