Trend Alert: Thigh High Boots


If you’re looking for a sexy outfit that is so easy to throw together – then look no further. The simplest combo is an oversize T-shirt or jacket with thigh boots.  You can pick any type or pattern for the top and pair it with over the knee boots. Take a look at some stunning combos that you can try for a night out that definitely turn heads.


Bella Hadid paired an oversized camouflage shirt with black thigh high boots and loose hair.


Gigi Hadid wowed in a loose fitting black jean jacket with patent boots. She added a simple choker with a ponytail and mauve lip liner.


Kourtney Kardashian paired a bold orange Pablo concert T-shirt with forest green peep-toe boots for her daytime look. The 37-year-old styled her dark tresses loose and sleek.


Ariana Grande styled her thigh high boots with a graphic oversized Moschino tee – which gives off the perfect cool girl vibe!


Karrueche Tran is one of the most stylish ladies in my opinion – and she did not disappoint in her red top with her black boots — simple, effortless and so sexy!

How To Wear a Concert T-shirt Like Gigi Hadid


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: 3 Ways To Wear An Oversized Sweater


Sweater weather is officially underway! Although I do miss summertime, I am looking forward to wearing my favorite knits once again.  The latest trend in winter fashion has got to be wearing oversized sweaters.  While the loose-fitted nature can be off-putting to some, it can actually be quite sexy.  It’s all about how you style your sweater.  To find out ways to wear an oversized sweater this fall/winter, keep reading!

1.Oversized Sweater X Thigh Highs

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). The key to this look is to make sure the sweater is long enough where it will cover your butt and that your thigh highs go high enough.  The light tone of the sweater perfectly compliments the black of the shoes and handbag.  This is a simple, minimalistic look that is so sexy!

If you want to try out this look at a more budget friendly price, check out this cream sweater from Naked Wardrobe for $42. and these Steve Madden thigh highs from Nasty Gal for $150.

2.Oversized Sweater X Loose Skirt

Selena Gomez donned a taupe hued oversized turtleneck, pairing it with a camel colored loose skirt and white pumps. She’s wearing a Tory Burch knit (currently on sale for $177) and skirt (sold out). This look is all about fit–the top and skirt are loose. Both pieces have large slits on the sides, making this look subtly sexy. By pairing them with pumps, you’re showing a lot of leg, but in a really classy way.

I found a similar turtleneck on Naked Wardrobe, and it’s only $62! Forever 21 has a gorgeous skirt for $17.90.

3.Oversized Turtleneck X Leggings

Gigi Hadid sported an oversized turtleneck sweater that looked so cozy and classic.  She paired it simply, with black leggings and heeled booties. The oversized turtleneck will always look good with leggings because the two pieces really balance each other out. Gigi pulled her hair up in a casual bun,  which is the perfect ‘do for this! I found a gorgeous Topshop sweater for $80 and leggings from H & M for $12.99

Model Style: 6 Style Tricks From Gigi Hadid


Gigi Hadid career is on fire! She’s been seen on the runways of New York, London, Milan, Paris as well as inside numerous magazines.  Vogue Magazine recently dubbed her an “It Girl” and I completely agree!  She has a keen sense of style and always looks runway ready on the streets.  If you love Gigi’s style, check out these 6 style tricks!

1. White Out

Gigi’s evening style is all about simplicity.  If you’re in a hurry, a great evening ootn is a simple long sleeve ribbed crop top and bodycon skirt in a light color.  Wearing a top and skirt in the same light color is the key to this look.  For Gigi, she picked a light grey/almost white top and bottom set.  Although not pictured, she chose black strappy sandals to finish off the look.  Light grey is such a great spring/summer color and it looks so chic.  If you want the exact same outfit as Gigi, she’s wearing House of CB’s Arabella set ($167) but you can easily recreate it by choosing similar pieces.

2) Oversized Turtleneck Dress

This is a great look if you don’t want to show too much skin or wear something too fitted.  Gigi chose a grey loose turtleneck and simply paired it with thigh high boots–doesn’t get simpler than that.  The key to this look is choosing a turtleneck that is loose like hers.  The one she’s wearing is from Free People and it’s actually a top, not a dress. She chose it in a larger size and made it into a dress.  I’ve also seen her wear it as a long sweater with pants.  Very versatile! This is a great look for day or night and will be really comfy no matter what.  The one she’s wearing from Free People is actually on sale for $89.95, but there’s also a great one from H&M currently on sale for only $10!

3. Sportswear X Ripped Jeans

If you want to add a sports inspired twist to your ootd, take a look at Gigi’s outfit!  She created a base of a black tee and ripped jeans, adding on top a mesh zip up jacket to give the whole outfit a sporty vibe.  Add in simple black pumps and you can take this look into the evening.  This is a perfect look if you don’t want to wear a dress or a skirt in the evening but still want to wear something sexy.  The black jacket’s mesh detailing has a sheer factor to it that gives the look an overall edgy vibe.

4.Back to the Basics

A simple buttoned up white collared shirt is sometimes overlooked outside the office or school, but Gigi styled it perfectly!  This type of shirt is timeless and a must have for any wardrobe.  It can be styled many ways. The material is only semi-sheer, showing just a hint of her bra–sexy and sweet at the same time.  She paired it with black jeans and strappy heels.  The edgy heels are a great finishing touch to the outfit as well as a slicked back ponytail.  I found a similar one at H&M for $24.95.

5. Black X White

Gigi is taking the black and white look to the next level. She wore a white jumpsuit, (which if you don’t have or don’t want to purchase, simply wear white high waisted trousers with a white long sleeved top tucked in) and pair it with a black trench coat, duster coat, or a long blazer.  The key to this look is by wearing the jacket as Gigi does–have the jacket around your shoulders and don’t put your arms in the sleeves–this is a quick way to add a chic factor to the look.  Add in a middle parted ponytail and a couple of gold rings to finish the outfit.

6. Edgy All Black

While Gigi tends to keep most of her outfits on the lighter side, she definitely infuses edge to her pieces.  In this case, she took edgy all the way, wearing a black top and jeans, with a spike adored leather jacket and studded black belt. The base of the outfit is simple-black top and jeans–it’s the jacket, belt and sunnies that made this such a edgy look.  The cropped leather jacket is a great addition to your wardrobe as it can toughen up any outfit it’s paired with.

The Sexiest Date Night Look Ever!


Gigi Hadid wore a sexy ootn when she was photographed out in NYC with boyfriend Cody Simpson, and it’s an outfit that’s an absolute must try!!  The blond haired model chose two simple pieces, a white cut out midi length skirt and a black crop top, BUT when you put the two together = wow!  It’s still super classy but oh so sexy.  Sometimes the sexiest outfit can be as simple as wearing only white and black pieces.

If you’re not comfortable showing your belly button, choose a skirt that is higher waisted–it will still look sexy.  The key to feeling sexy in any outfit is comfort.  If you don’t feel comfortable in an outfit, you will project that and that’s not sexy. If you feel hot in your outfit, you will project confidence and that is sexy!!  Gigi doesn’t wear any jewelry, which keeps this looking effortless and fresh.
