Mar

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

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.

Trend Alert: Lingerie Inspired Pieces

Nov
13

Wearing lingerie inspired pieces – or straight up lingerie – incorporated in your outfit – is one of the sexiest trends right now. While there are many ways to wear lingerie in public, check out three ways you can rock the daring pieces while still looking chic, elegant but oh so sexy!

Bodysuit and Jeans

This look is for bold women out there! Khloe Kardashian chose a Gooseberry Intimates bodysuit (you can purchase the exact black one she wears here and the exact white one here for $139) with skinny jeans. The one-piece hugs her curves perfectly while the denim makes the look daytime appropriate and effortlessly cool. She wore the black bodysuit with distressed denim from her Good American jean line, layers of chokers and brown lip liner.

Khloe wore the white bodysuit (link to purchase here) by Gooseberry Intimates with light wash denim bottoms and a matching jacket, adding white mules and large black sunglasses. The pink lipstick is the perfect color for this look – it breaks up all the white and blue.

Lacy Dress X Jacket

Kim Kardashian wore a lingerie inspired dress during Paris Fashion Week. The brunette paired the white number with a matching hued silky jacket that she left off one shoulder. She cinched the outfit with a corset-style belt and added layers of gold jewelry.

Kim wore another lingerie inspired look, this time a silky black dress with lace trim. You can buy this exact piece from MyStyleMode for only $59.99. She added a sporty oversized jacket with strappy heels and oversized sunglasses. Make sure to pull your hair back into a ponytail like Kim and don’t wear any earrings or necklaces.

Lace Bralette X Lace Shirt

Taylor Hill wore a black bra with a sheer lacy white shirt on top. To balance out the see-through pieces, Taylor wore a black mini skirt. The top is long sleeved yet sheer- so you still show some skin without it being too much. The skirt is a great piece to wear with this look because it covers up your stomach while still showing off your legs.

Birthday OOTD!

Mar

3:21:15 Full Kings Game

Hi! It’s been a while since I’ve posted an outfit–I wasn’t sure I was going to post this because my jacket looks so wrinkled in the photos! LOL! I steam ironed it before I put it on but it was so hot outside that I think I sweated and wrinkled it! Gross I know but what can you do! ¬†It didn’t look this wrinkled earlier!

Anyways, now that I’ve pointed out the wrinkles ūüôā let’s talk fashion. ¬†I am wearing a Forever 21 linen blazer, tank and harem pants. I went to a Kings hockey game and wanted to be comfortable but also keep the outfit somewhat fancy. ¬†It was my birthday weekend so I wanted to dress my best, for myself! ¬†I finished the look off with my Ray Bans, Catherine Malandrino purse and Steven by Steve Madden heels.

My favorite piece right now is the harem pants/joggers I’m wearing-only $22 from Forever 21. They have a satin like texture and zipper detailing on the bottom of each leg. ¬†I love wearing it high waisted because I can comfortably wear my crop tops without thinking I’m showing a lot of stomach. The most important thing about harem pants/joggers is before you purchase, try it on! Sometimes stores have harem pants/joggers that have a low crotch–it’s loose and not fitted at all-that’s not always flattering on all body types. ¬†My sister originally bought this and one it cream, featured in my previous blog post.

I love mixing the black pants with blush and gray tones. ¬†It’s a great way to lighten up an outfit but still wear dark. ¬†I think my purse is a great addition to my closet because it’s black and white–meaning I can wear it many ways with many different colored pieces.

On my birthday, my mom made me some delicious cupcakes (vegan!) and a friend brought me flowers and a chocolate brownie. ¬†We also had some bakery items to thinnish off the night. Not the healthiest meal but it was my birthday!! I hope you guys are having a wonderful week–now that spring is here I’m excited to wear colors other just black.

Fall Style: Knit Dresses

Sep

With fall just around the corner, what better way to kick it off than with a comfy knit dress? ¬†I love the ones that look like oversized sweaters–so chic and so flattering no matter your body type. ¬†If you love the look of knit dresses, take a look at three different ways you can wear it.

All the looks share the same idea: keep the entire outfit simple–no crazy amounts of jewelry, makeup, etc. ¬†In this case, less is more!

In the first look, Kim Kardashian styles her loose knit dress with some thigh high nude boots and a matching Celine purse. She perfectly complimented the dress with some aviators, a gold watch and dark colored nails.

In the next look, the model is also rocking a white sleeveless knit dress like Kim, but this time, it’s styled with a sleeveless vest in off white. ¬†It’ important to find a vest that’s longer than the dress–it balances the look! ¬†Add a single silver colored bangle with simple makeup and there you have it!

This next look is my favorite!  It looks like the most comfortable oversized turtleneck!  The unique boots make it a cool, casual look.  Make sure to roll the sleeves, it keeps the look from being too polished!

I have a habit of waiting until the last minute to figure out what I am going to wear for the day. When time is running out and you need to be somewhere, try recreating these three simple yet chic looks!

Gisele casual outfit for the airport is a perfect quick and easy ootd–and it looks good on everyone! ¬†Her look is just a couple of basics put together, giving an effortless cool look. ¬†Just wear your fave jeans with a black belt, add a white top with a leather jacket and voila! ¬†Don’t forget sunglasses–key to pulling off the look!

Khloe Kardashian’s outfit is definitely a sexier look but can also be wore for many different occasions. ¬†Besides a night out, date, or a weekend look, Khloe’s outfit could work for a party as well. ¬†I love Henley tops–they are so versatile depending on the fit and how many buttons you leave open. ¬†Her Henley top is more on the fitted side and she has several buttons open, giving it a sexy but still classy spin on the look. ¬†The ripped jeans make the outfit look less structured and also adds an edge. ¬†To finish off the look, I would recommend emulating the dark lips-it definitely takes the look to the next level! ¬†The hoops are a simple addition that makes it a little more urban and less preppy.

Supermodel Lily Aldridge’s casual outfit is one of my favorites! ¬†Next time you’re in a rush, grab a pair of black skinny jeans, tuck in a white tank and add some funky shoes. ¬†She makes the look sexy by her peeking lingerie style bra underneath her tank. ¬†She shows just ¬†a peek of the bra but it’s enough to give some subtle sexiness. ¬†The dangling earrings, white bag, and blazer in her hand make this a definite date night look!

Three Different Looks You Could Be Rocking This Weekend

Jul
01

Now that summer is officially underway, beach parties and bbq’s will be making their way on social calendars. If you want to mix up your summer wardrobe, take a look at some looks I’ve been loving this week!

1) Casual and Cool 90s

I love the 90s–it’s my favorite style decade, and who can forget one of the most popular item–overalls! Light blue or dark denim, black, white–love it all! This is a must have item for summer! Throw it on over a crop top and it’s sexy but still sweet. Or wear it with a simple white t-shirt and look effortless. You can show as little or as much skin as you want. Check out this look from Selena Gomez, who is rocking a floral crop top underneath her overalls.

2) Effortless Chic

Denim shorts represent summer to me and adding bold heels and a black belt takes the effortless to another level.  Try pairing it a la supermodel and South African goddess Candice Swanepoel, who wore her shorts with a white top, snakeskin patterned heels and an Alexander Wang purse during Paris Fashion Week.

3) Sexy But Comfortable

Don’t get me wrong short skirts are cute, sexy and look good with everything. But, it’s a pain to wear–you have to constantly make sure nothing is showing, it’s not too short and if it’s flattering. Instead of worrying how it sits on your body, my favorite length is a long skirt. The long, flawy ones are adorable but I like the slightly fitted long skirts. You can get one embellished with zippers, a patterned design, but if you want to try out the trend, get a simple long black skirt. It looks amazing paired with pretty much anything, but I am loving Kim Kardashian’s take on a long skirt summer look. Wear a black version with a black crop top, showing only a slither of skin.
