Kourtney Kardashian has got impeccable style. And if you need major inspiration for your weekend outfits – she’s got you covered. From date night, girls night to just running errands – she’s got a look for all occasions you might encounter this weekend. Check out six Kourtney Kardashians looks you need to try this weekend!

1. Crop X Denim X Chunky earrings

Kourtney works out hard in the gym – and isn’t afraid to show off her hard work. The mother of three put her toned abs on display in a black crop top with cropped boyfriend jeans for shopping outing. She chose a top with billowy sleeves and a chain link detail down the center. She added Mary Jane heels, chunky gold cross earrings and round framed sunglasses. The key to this look is adding a pop with statement earrings and choosing jeans that are high-waisted.

2. Sporty but sexy

If you are heading out for errands and want to look cute but still feel comfortable, then this next look is for you. I personally love wearing athletic wear – as often as I can – but sometimes it looks just too sporty. Kourtney showed how to make it work! She paired gray sweaters with a long sleeved white crop top, adding sneakers, a baseball cap and white socks.

3. Purple daze

Kourtney always manages to choose looks that are bold, flattering and a touch edgy. She chose lavender high-waisted trousers for her outfit of the day, adding a coordinating puple crop top. The look is sexy but oh so sophisticated. Keep your hair sleek and loose for this look and make sure to add minimal jewelry – try gold bangles like Kourtney.

4. Denim X Lace

kourtneykardashiansheerbodysuitjeansDenim jackets are a must have staple for your wardrobe! Not only are they stylish, they are timeless. Kourtney slipped an oversized denim jacket over a sexy sheer lace bodysuit – the perfect balance. The bodysuit would be too much on its own – the denim breaks it up and makes it more wearable – you can rock this on a date, dinner or going out with the girls. Add leather bottoms – or black jeans or leggings. Just make sure your choice of bottoms are fitted, and add simple heels to finish off the look.

Stripes X Ripped

 Summer is just around the corner, and what better way to kick it off then with white jeans! Kourtney chose ripped, white skinny jeans, adding a blue and white striped blouse. To give the look some edge, the reality star wore a black choker with large reflective sunglasses.

6. Velvet dream

Kourtney loves playing with textures and different types of fabrics – and she did just that on an iced drink outing. The E! star chose a loose fitting velvet top with extremely distressed bottoms, adding heeled booties. The velevet top is so chic and you super versatile. It can be worn with a mini skirt or with a lace top peeking from the neckline. She toted a the $1,910 Louis Vuitton Palm Springs logo backpack but a simple black one will do too.

Last week, the gorgeous model Chrissy Teigen stepped out with her baby girl Luna and husband John Legend for lunch with the Wests – Kanye and Kim Kardashian. The 30-year-old beauty sported an asymetrical black bodysuit with high waisted matching colored denim shorts. This is such a perfect spring and summer look — and it’s very figure flattering.

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.

Style Inspired: 6 Style Tricks From Lily-Rose Depp

May

Lily-Rose Depp is quickly becoming a household name – she’s a model, actress and has a great eye for fashion. Lily — the 17-year-old daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis — always looks so effortlessly cool. She tends to choose bold statement pieces for her nighttime looks and opts for classic ones for daytime.

Keep reading to find out six style tricks to dress like the stunning Lily-Rose Depp.

1.Tube Top X Jeans X Choker 

Lily-Rose looked amazing in a Chanel tube top, pairing it with jeans and high heels. Tube tops are definitely underrated – they were big a few years ago and are slowly coming back into mainstream. They show off your decolletage and shoulders in a very understated sexy way – a definite must have.

Choose a colorful look like the teen and pair it with light wash denim to dress it down. The jeans make the look casual and youthful. The choker balances out the strapless top and adds an edgy touch to the colorful look.  Make sure to pull your hair back into a top bun like Lily-Rose so the focus is on the tube top and choker.

2. Gray Tee X White Shorts

This is such a simple yet classic look.  Most people would immediately choose their blue denim shorts this summer but why not try white ones?  Lily-Rose styled her light-hued bottoms with a plain gray top and white socks and sneakers.  It’s a quick and easy summer ensemble. To add a fun touch, wear round or reflective sunglasses like her.

3. Cream Motorcycle Jacket 

Instead of grabbing a black motorcycle jacket, why not choose a neutral hued one? That’s exactly what Lily-Rose did, and it looks so effortless and chic. She wore the cover up layered on top of a white hoodie and white tee. The model wore the piece with low-rise light wash jeans and sneakers, topping it off with two delicate necklaces and sunglasses.  It’s a great look for daytime but can be easily made nighttime ready by swapping the shoes out for heels and the backpack for a clutch.

4. Dress X Bomber Jacket X Bold Lips

Lily-Rose is not afraid of mixing pattern with color. The star wowed in a ruffled dress with a bright gold and black bomber, topping it off with red lips. The key to this look is choosing a feminine dress – i.e. ruffles and pairing it with a bold jacket and bright lips. Make sure to pull your hair back and have the jacket sitting perched on your shoulders for the finishing touches.

5. Black X Red X White

The actress has mastered the perfect summer casual look. She rocked white shorts with a black tank top. For a unique touch, she sported black and red sneakers with black socks and a red Chanel backpack. The look is really sporty but also very cool girl chic.

6. Matching Hoodie X Shorts Set

Lily-Rose recently attended a photo call for her film The Dancer at the Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France and wore a gorgeous Chanel look. She chose an elbow-length hoodie with matching patterned shorts, finishing it off with red heels. This look can be dressed up or kept casual – just make sure the hoodie and shorts have identical patterns.

Since this look is pretty simple, add a bold or funky pair of heels for a unique touch to your ensemble. This look is definitely a chic and classic outfit that can be worn for many different occasions.

Model Style: 6 Style Tricks From Jasmine Tookes

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.

Model Style: 6 Style Tricks From Bella Hadid

Aug

Bella Hadid’s modeling career is blowing up! She’s on magazine covers, landing gigs, and walking down red carpets.  She’s always been a fashionista but lately, Bella has been upping her style game and she looks good!  She loves effortless looks, as well as keeping things simple. Check out 6 style tricks to dress like gorgeous Bella Hadid!

1. Bodysuits

Bella loves wearing bodysuits–she likes to wear them for casual night outs, to fancy events and everything in between.  Bodysuits are essentials pieces to your wardrobe–why? They are extremley figure flattering.  The bodysuit tucks everything in and smoothes you out.  Long sleeved bodysuits like what Bella wore in the first photo is sexy, but the longer sleeves balances out the open chest area.

Bella also likes to wear a spaghetti strap bodysuit with her jeans. While at this year’s Coachella, she wore a spaghetti strap bodysuit and then added a white jacket, Western inspired belt and a bandana to her fun look.

This next look is the perfect answer for an evening event.  It’s an understated sexy. Instead of wearing a revealing bra underneath, Bella chose a more modest bralette underneath her collared sheer bodysuit.  On top of the bodysuit, she added a leather jacket, which matched her skirt.  The high waisted skirt keeps the look from showing too much skin.  If it was lower, this outfit would be more of a nightclub look.  Instead, it’s a classy but youthful option for a fancy event.

2. Black X White

Bella likes to keep things simple and in this case, she chose the most basic combo–black and white.  This timeless, elegant look is ladylike with edge.  She chose a billowy blouse that she tucked into a leather skirt.  Add in a mini chain purse and put your hair in a simple bun for an effortlessly chic day or night look.

3. Ripped Denim

Bella loves to rock ripped jeans, especially when it involves pairing it with black pieces.  The model decided to wear a low cut top with a simple jacket and round sunnies for a day in the city. She added casual black sneakers, keeping the look from being too feminine.  This is a great outfit combo for days when you just want to run out the door but still look fashionable.  The sunnies and sneakers are great ways to infuse a more vintage vibe to the black tank and jeans combo.

4.All Black

For the most part, Bella loves black.  She is most often seen wearing the  monochrome look.  Bella wears the little black dress as well as a black jumpsuit to various events.  Black will always look classic and elegant so choosing that color when going to a fancy event is always a good idea. She adds a little more makeup with black pieces–in the top look, she’s got subtle cat eyes using eyeshadow, while in the second photo, she’s wearing a red lipgloss.  She also pairs her all black looks with gold accessories, including a gold choker and heels with the dress and a chain link purse with her jumpsuit.

5.Flannel X Black

Bella wears a long sleeved black dress with a plaid flannel tied around her waist. She piled on her accessories, wearing a silver choker, dangling necklaces and a couple of rings. She added black boots to finish the look as well.  This grunge inspired outfit is edgy and very 90s esque.  The black dress is definitely on the shorter side so adding a flannel on top is a great option to keep everything covered.

6. Ladylike X Vintage

In this next outfit, Bella looks like a mix of the 1950s and 2015.  The flouncy yellow skirt and the high neck cream top are the epitome of classy and reserved, but Bella added that dose of sexiness by choosing to wear the sheer top with a floral bralette underneath.  The bralette and skirt compliment each other, pulling the whole look together without looking too refined.  She also loosened up the look even more by adding a few necklaces/chokers.  The shoes are also a nice casual touch.

Hailey Baldwin looked stunning at the recent Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation (MI5) premiere in New York City, wearing a classic look: black dress, lace up heels and red lips.

I think the cut and style of Hailey’s little black dress is one of my all time favorite!. An off-the-shoulder dress is a must have for any woman because it’s simple, elegant and timeless.

Hailey’s classic dress is so versatile, you can wear it on a date, a wedding, a party, even on a night out.  It’s both day and nighttime wearable.  The dress is very Audrey Hepburn-esque and if you add lace up heels like Hailey, it adds that edgy touch.  Red lips are classic and perfectly balance the all black look, making it glamorous and sexy!  Keep reading to find out where to pick up her exact dress or a less expensive similar option!

It’s official!  The Kendall + Kylie at Topshop collection is out, just in time for the start of summer.  The Jenner girls infused the beach (they are California girls 🙂 ), florals and even a sweater for their collection.  The pieces will fit perfectly in this summer’s wardrobe and there is pretty much something for everyone’s style.  The collection is available on Topshop.com as well as on Nordstrom.com (Topshop section).  Check out 5 of my favorite pieces and how you can style them!

1. Kendall + Kylie at Topshop Floral Print Jumpsuit $105

This floral jumpsuit is my favorite piece from the whole collection.  The pattern is beautiful and the cut is sexy yet still wearable in the daytime.  The short sleeves are great for a warm day, as well as the light colors–you defeinitly won’t get hot in this. I actually don’t like the floral jumpsuit with sandals, I think cream colored lace up heels or wedges would look great with it.  The heels will make you look tall and classy in this bright piece.

2. Kendall + Kylie at Topshop Floral Print Hawaiian Shirt, &68

This button up shirt is another great piece from their new collection–it’s versatile and comfy.  The shirt can be styled with denim shorts, high waisted white shorts, or a black mini skirt.  You could also wear a fitted mini dress and leave a couple of buttons open so you can see more of the dress.

3.Kendall + Kylie at Topshop Duster Coat, $150

This white duster coat is a great jacket for those cool summer nights, light but still enough material to keep you warm.  This duster coat will literally go with anything–you can pair it with a black dress, a neon colored two crop top and midi skirt, or even denim shorts and a crop top.  The key to rocking this coat is making sure you pair it with heels or heeled boots–sandals would be too casual for this piece.  This timeless piece can be used over and over again, as long as your careful with keeping it clean!

4. Kendall + Kylie at Topshop Sweatshirt, $68

This sweater is a definite departure from their floral and beach pieces, but it still has that tropical vibe.  It’s a fun sweatshirt that will add a youthful touch to your outfit, whether you style it with denim shorts, a fitted neon skirt or even with floral shorts. Since it’s a sweater, you can wear this piece all year!

5. Kendall + Kylie at Topshop Embroidered Surplice Top, $70

This embroidered crop top is so detailed and light. There’s a tie by the waist that you can adjust, which really adds a feminine quality to the piece. There’s little holes all around in a pattern, which shows off a hint of skin but not too much.  My favorite part is the cut on the top, the V neck that reminds me of DVF wrap dresses.
