Gigi Hadid stunned during a girls night out trip earlier this month with fellow It girls Kendall and Kylie Jenner and Hailey Baldwin to The Nice Guy in West Hollywood.

The 21-year-old model showed off her sculpted abs in a cropped concert T-shirt with sheer paneled mesh leggings.

The Rolling Stones top gave the look a relaxed, edgy touch while the leggings upped the sex appeal. The combination of the top and skintight sheer leggings made it the perfect night out look when you’re not in the mood to wear a dress or skirt.

She complimented the cool girl ensemble with a long necklace and heeled boots, finishing it off with a ponytail and minimal makeup.

If you can’t find a cropped concert top like Gigi, just choose one and cut off a couple of inches from the bottom and voila – you have the perfect summer top!

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.

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).

Nov

A fringed jacket is such a key piece this fall and winter.  Not only is it versatile, it’s also so classic.  From day to night, the piece will add edge and sexiness to your outfit–it’s definitely a show stopper.  Keep reading to find out three ways to wear a fringed jacket this year!

1. Monochrome X Camel 

Miranda Kerr draped her camel hued fringed Saint Laurent Jacket over  a white collared shirt, which she tucked into loose trousers.  She added a pop with her gold and black belt as well as her statement heels.  To make the look more edgy, she left a few unbuttons open, revealing her bralette beneath it. She added a striped clutch with gold and black hues, as well as hoop earrings and round sunglasses. The key to this look is tucking your collared shirt into your trousers, and adding the gold and black accessories for a pop of edge.

For this next look, Miranda wore the same Saint Laurent jacket, but decided to go edgier, opting for all black.  She paired a high neck top with leather leggings and pointed lace up booties. With this look, make sure you choose leggings you’re comfortable in–try a higher waisted one if you don’t want to show that much skin.  But the pop of midriff helps break up the dark vibe of the look.  The heeled boots definitely lengthen the legs and complete the ensemble.  Pull you hair back in a low bun like Miranda to finish off the outfit.

2.  Black x White

Gigi Hadid styled her fringed black leather jacket with white skinny jeans–simple but so gorgeous. The black and white combo never gets old, and she balances it out with black strappy heels. She kept her makeup light and didn’t wear any accessories, which is perfect because you don’t want to distract from the fringed jacket.  For this look, make sure the jeans are fitted as well as the jacket-the most important aspect is the fit–so that it accentuates your body.

3. Ripped Denim

Kendall Jenner rocked a mustard hued fringed jacket–a bold look that she toned down with a white high neck blouse.  The turtleneck is a great winter element but it also breaks up the bright hue.  She aded ripped denim so the look isn’t too clean cut and paired it with a gray beanie and aviators.  The nude pointed heels lengthen her legs and don’t take attention away from the main piece—the jacket.

Boho Dress And Boots The Lifestyle ReporterSummer is coming to an end, which means it’s time for some fall fashion.  Lately, I’ve been really loving the combination of boho dresses with booties.  The combo is fun, youthful and effortlessly chic.  The best part is that it’s all about comfort.  Check out three different ways you can try this combo!

1.Western Inspired

Model Candice Swanepoel wears a gorgeous blue patterned boho dress with tan booties.  The Western inspired combo is the perfect fall OOTD–feminine, vintage inspired and so timeless.  The bright colored dress is a nice change from wearing neutrals and the tan boots give the outfit a very relaxed vibe.

2. Stripes X Ankle Boots

In this next look, Gigi Hadid takes a striped shirtdress and pairs with it with black ankle boots.  She left a few buttons open on her dress and left her hair down–making it a sexy take on the boho dress.  The dress is loose and not the most form fitting, but leaving a few buttons open and having that tie around the waist makes it subtle and sexy.

3. Vintage Vibes

Kate Bosworth chose a vintage inspired boho dress and paired it with black pointed boots.  The 60’s inspired dress has a lot of great detailing including the unique pattern and the peep of skin at the midriff.  This dress is more form fitting than Candice and Gigi’s but it still is that gorgeous combo of boots with a boho dress.  The sunglasses are another great way to add that vintage touch to the look.

5 Denim Looks to Try This Week

Aug
10

Denim will always be a classic piece in your wardrobe. The great thing about denim is how versatile it is–you can dress it up or down, make it edgy or preppy, and so on.  It’s great for every season, but since we’re right in the middle of summer, why not try a new outfit combo using denim?  Keep reading to find out five denim looks you need to try this week!

1) Denim Skirt X Stripes

Jamie Chung chose a ripped denim skirt with a thin black belt, a striped t-shirt, mules and a studded bag.  This is a great example on how you can style a ripped skirt into a chic look without looking too edgy.  It’s a great outfit for the day time–casual but well put together.  For this outfit, the mules were the perfect elegant touch.  The studded bag adds a nice edgy element to the overalll outfit.

2) High Waisted Jeans X Double Belts

I love high waisted jeans–it’s so classy and simple.  You don’t have to have the same body type as Kendall Jenner–high waisted jeans can look amazing on everyone.  To find your perfect pair of high waisted denim, make sure you try them on in person (don’t order online) and try to choose one that has fitted legs.  Pairing high waisted denim with a crop top is my all time favorite combo because you can show a small portion of your midriff without feeling too exposed.

This denim look is great because the double belt and boots are a fun twist to the usual classic and simple crop top/high waisted denim combo.  Kendall chose a tan belt, which she pulled through the belt holes. She added a decorative belt casually looped around her–it’s a western style metal belt.  She cuffed her jeans and wore edgy combat boots.  She didn’t add too many accessories, just a simple silver bangle and round sunglasses.

3) Button Down Skirt X Ruffles

Alexa Chung wore a denim button down skirt, a ruffled white crop top and red lips–such a simple but gorgeous combo.  The button skirt is definitely becoming a popular piece this summer and with good reason.  The skirt is super flattering because it’s fitted at the hips and flares out.  The metal detail of the button adds dimension to an otherwise simple skirt.  The ruffled top and red lips are both classic and oh so chic.  The simple pieces, when combined, create a bold but feminine denim look.

4) A Pop of Color

Model Mica Arganaraz’ street style is so on point!  She paired a classic pair of denim shorts with a white tee, orange blazer and black Birkenstocks.  The burnt orange blazer is a bright pop of color to an otherwise simple day out look. She rolled the sleeves up and pulled her hair in a high bun–great details that give off that effortlessly cool girl vibe.  If you want to change up your summer uniform, then this is a great look.  You can make this night time appropriate by adding a pair of nude heels.

The frayed top and jeans are perfect for the summer–it’s youthful, edgy and fun.  Sandals would have made the look too casual–the booties add that city chic vibe, as well as the bucket bag and aviators.  This look is so effortlessly cool!
