6 Outfit Ideas to Steal from Kourtney Kardashian

Mar
23

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.

5 Different Ways to Wear White This Summer

May
27

This summer, instead of grabbing your black jeans and tops, why not try white?  White is an amazing color to wear in the summer, because it’s effortless and light–you definitely won’t be hot in it!  It’s also a classic color that will brighten your look, no matter what.  Check out five different ways you could be wearing white this summer!

1. White T-Shirt Dress X Denim Jacket X Nude Heels

Kim Kardashian looks like the picture of summer, wearing a fitted white T-shirt ankle length dress with nude lace up heels.  She brought along a light wash denim jacket–the perfect jacket for a white dress. The dress is super fitted but the tank top type sleeves of the dress and denim jacket keep the look casual.  The nude colored heels compliment the dress and elongate her body.

2. White Blouse X White Midi Skirt X White Belt

Olivia Palermo looks so chic in her all white get up–white blouse tucked into a white midi skirt with a white belt, with a pop of color–her dark lace up heels.  She wore simple accessories and had bright red nail polish.  This look is great for work, a night out or even a fancy date!  The monochrome color scheme pulls the whole look together and the red nails and heels give it a pop of color.  To keep the look from being too white, she finished off the look with dark lace up heels, which give the outfit a nice edgy touch.

3. Cropped High Neck Blouse X High Waisted Trousers

Vanessa Hudgens wore a high neck cropped blouse with high waisted white trousers, nude heels and a black handbag.  The cropped blouse actually is actually patterned, with some sheer elements to it–which balances out the crisp white trousers she paired it with.  The nude heels are simple and compliment the formal look.  Vanessa decided to add a black bag, which give a touch of edge to an overall fancy look.  She wore her hair in a high bun, which gives us full view of the detailed high neck feature of her top.

Candice Swanepoel wore a button up Henley Tee with her white ripped denim, finishing off the look with a blue flannel tied around her waist and tan booties.  This is such an effortlessly cool look, and very simple to recreate.  Ripped white denim is a great addition to your wardrobe because it’s much fancier than blue or black colored denim, and it brightens up any look. The Henley t-shirt gives the outfit a sexy touch and looks so comfortable! The flannel gives the look a pop of color and makes it less formal.  The nude booties are the perfect shoes for this look–they look tough because they’re boots, but the nude color keeps the look from being too edgy.

5. White Tank X Cuffed Pants X Blush Blazer X Pink Bag

Jessica Alba knows how to look cute and still look casual!  In this look, she chose a white loose fitted tank, with white trousers she cuffed and flat sandals.  Jessica added a pop of color with a blush colored blazer and a pink purse.  Blush and pink colors look great with white, and this look is no exception.  By cuffing the trousers, she makes the look less formal, along with the flats she wore.  The blazer is very loose fitting and the hem is much longer than your normal blazer, but not long enough to be called a duster coat.  This is a great length for the look because it’s more casual than a regular blazer and the length adds a definite chic factor.  I’ve been seeing pink purses everywhere and the reason why is because it’s fun, it compliments pretty much any color you pair it with, and it’s different than your regular cream or nude purse.

Three Must See Winter Looks

Dec
02

Winter outfits can usually end up feeling uninspired–mine is usually the same look all the time–jacket and jeans.  If you’re like me and you want to try a different look, have no fear, here are three great winter looks that aren’t the typical ootd and are must-sees!

1. Plaid

Plaid is a great pattern that literally looks good on everyone.  Cara Delevingne’s plaid jacket is gorgeous and it takes her outfit to the next level!  Instead of grabbing that black jacket, try something like Cara’s.  If you don’t want to invest in a plaid jacket or if it’s to out there for you, you can always wear a plaid shirt around the waist and throw on a leather jacket to stay warm.  However, this jacket is a timeless piece that will always be in style and make your outfit look sophisticated.  Cara did a great job making her look edgy by adding leather pants and boots.

2. Faux Fur

Faux fur is a must have this fall/winter!  It not only keeps you warm, but it looks so chic.  Jessica Alba rocks her faux fur on top of an olive-colored jacket that makes the look badass!  I love that she added the scarf to her outfit to make it more feminine.  A faux fur vest is a great piece because it’s so versatile but you can also try a faux fur jacket instead if you’re looking for warmth.

3. All White Everything

When in doubt, or in a rush, I tend to grab an all black outfit, BUT, why not try and do the opposite?  An all white look, a la Kim Kardashian, is a great way to dress outside the box and make heads turn.  I love the idea of a white turtleneck and long white skirt–it’s chic and simple.  If you want to stay warmer than Kim, definitely grab a turtleneck that’s thicker and not see thru, but you get the idea!  The all white look is so flattering and you will definitely stand out in a crowd!

Model Style: 6 Style Tricks From Kendall Jenner

Nov
03

In honor of Kendall Jenner’s 19th birthday (on November 3rd), I thought it would be the perfect time to focus on her amazing style!  As a model, she can wear pretty much anything and it looks good, but these 6 style tricks can work on any body shape, type, etc! Her style is definitely more classic than her sisters, but still sexy! Take a look below for 6 style tricks from Kendall Jenner:

1.  Pair Cropped Sweaters With Asymmetrical Skirts

Kendall perfectly pairs a cropped sweater with an asymetical skirt, giving the outfit some great dimension.  Her arms are covered but the legs and stomach are shown, which is the perfect balance.  The great thing about this look is that only a sliver of your stomach shows, but that is still really sexy.  Play with colors like Kendall–choose a oxblood or yellow cropped sweater and add a unique looking skirt.  Trust me, this will be your new signature fall look for nights out or even a date night.  You’re wearing a sweater, so it will keep you (somewhat) warm!

2. Wear Thigh High Boots

If you don’t want to show a lot of skin, but still look sexy, well, you need to invest in a great pair of thigh high boots!  It is a great addition to any girl’s closet and literally makes any look sexier.  While she keeps the color palette simple with a black blouse, pants and purse, the cream colored thigh highs take this look to a whole other level!

3. Choose Sheer Tops

Kendall is a big fan of sheer tops but she always keeps it classy and chic.  The key to this look is what you pair the sheer top with.  In both of the photos below, she pretty much wears a bra or bralette and a sheer top, but her pants are what keep this look classy.  For the first outfit, she is wearing high waisted black trousers that cover even her belly button.  Not only is this flattering for a lot of different body types, but it is not too revealing.  Try pairing some work-type trousers to your sheer top and bra, and voila a sexy night look.  In the second photo, she shows some stomach, but her pants are loose joggers and this gives the look a perfect balance of sexy and sporty!

Kendall loves adding pops of color through her accessories and makeup. Her everyday makeup is usually a natural look, but if she wants to spice up her outfit, she adds the red lip.  The textured sweater and leather pants are gorgeous but adding the red nails and lips changes the look to sexy.  Having bold lips and nails is a simple and quick way to make any outfit sexier.  If you want to be bold but not quite ready to wear red lips, try doing what Kendall does in the second photo–using accessories for a pop of color.  She is wearing a jeans and t-shirt, which, yes is classic, but it can also seem boring.  She added green Ray Ban aviators and a orange handbag–this makes the outfit fun and youthful!

5. Stripes! Stripes! Stripes!

Stripes are so cute-it really is a timeless pattern.  Kendall sure likes stripes as well, and as you can see, she wore a striped black and white sweater dress while out and about.  Stripes can be tricky–like Kendall, make sure you make the stripes the star of the show, and add simple accessories. She perfectly paired it with flat shoes, a black over the shoulder bag, and simple sunnies.   This makes a great daytime look.  Yes, you can add bold accesories if you want, but this look is all about effortless and casual–and wearing stripes with bright colors is distracting.  Kendall likes classic looks and this is one of them!

6. All Black Everything

When in doubt, wear all black like Kendall.  Kendall is frequently seen in an all black get up and I can definitely see why.  It’s the fastest way to dress and still look chic and put together.  If you have only minutes to get out of the house, grab all black pieces like Kendall–it looks amazing!  This will never go out of style and Kendall knows that the key to this look is to make sure the whole look is more on the fitted side. She wears skinny jeans and tops that are not very loose–it makes the look more put together.  If you’re not comfortable wearing fitted tops and bottoms, just choose pants that are on the more fitted side and you can wear a looser top, as long as you keep the color palette to black.

Trend Alert: Duster Coats!

Sep
29

I absolutely adore duster coats!  They are so chic and are quickly becoming popular.  Duster coats are otherwise known as really long jackets 🙂 .  You can get a thin duster coat or a really, thick one for a cool night.  Duster coats are coming back in style–they used to be popular in the 1920s, and women wore them to guard against wind while in an open car.  These days, a duster coat is the perfect addition to give your outfit a sophisticated vibe.  Now that fall is fully in effect, instead of wearing long pants and long sleeve tops, finish off your shorts and crop top with a duster coat–not only is it trendy, it will keep you warm and covered.  Take a look at three different, but equally gorgeous ways to wear a duster coat.

Kylie Jenner’s Bohemian OOTN:

Kylie styled her pale blue duster coat with an all white romper, nude hat, fringe bag and cream colored stilettos.  She kept the color palette of her outfit neutral, opting to add a pop of color with that gorgeous silky coat.  To make the look edgy, try incorporating accessories like Kylie that show your personality–it can change the look completely!

Rihanna’s Casual OOTD:

Let’s face it.  Rihanna can honestly do no wrong!  For this OOTD, she took a patterned duster coat that looks very Coachella-esque and made it work!  RiRi wore simple denim shorts, patterned crop top and red lips with her long jacket.  This is definitely a different look but it works!  You don’t have to wear a duster coat a certain way and RiRi shows us how you can make it funky yet still so chic.

Kim Kardashian’s Sydney Look:

When Kim visited Sydney, Australia for her hubby’s tour, she rocked a beautiful pastel pink duster coat with a white crop top and pencil skirt.  She finished it off with nude heels and sunglasses.  The duster coat really adds a chic element to the look.  The color is perfect–it can honestly go with anything.  Kim keeps the look look neutral by wearing all white and uses the pink to give the look some nice dimension.  If you don’t want to show a lot of skin, this is a great option.

Three Quick Outfit Ideas When You’re in a Rush!

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.
