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.

TaylorHillscoverpic

Taylor Hill has such a great sense of style- she always looks so cool and effortless while out and about. The 20-year-old Victoria’s Secret Angel has been a fixture on runways for years now. Keep reading to find out six style tricks from the stunning and ever so fashionable Taylor Hill.

1.White X Plaid X Lace

The stunner knows how to layer pieces that give off that effortless cool girl vibe. She chose a black bralette, adding a white dress on top with a plaid flannel tied around her waist.  Taylor finished off her look with a red bandana tied around her neck like a choker and a black cross body bag. This is an easy look to recreate this summer – it’s sexy but it doesn’t look like you tried hard. I love the look with a top knot- it just adds to that effortless vibe. Finish it off with combat boots for the perfect festival inspired ensemble.

2. Graphic Tee X Blush

Taylor kept it casual in a graphic T-shirt, which she opted to tuck into a blush hued skirt. The skirt and shirt really balance each other well. Make sure to tuck your shirt into your skirt like Taylor – it makes it look very put together. I love the pink color-it’s so summer casual and it can be re-worn in many different ways. Pull you hair into a high ponytail and keep your makeup minimal for a nice casual daytime ensemble.

3. Bodysuit X Skirt X Choker

Taylor looked amazing in a black bodysuit with a a white denim skirt, adding a choker and sneakers. Its sexy but still daytime appropriate. Pull you hair into a top knot like Taylor and keep your makeup on the lighter side – lipgloss, defined brows and a touch of eye shadow.

She’s wearing a Flynn Skye bodysuit, which is available here for $97.

4. Flannel X Jeans

This next look is a very easy to recreate for a casual day out. Ripped jeans with a fitted white tank is a simple combo, but Taylor upped the look with a blue and white flannel shirt, a bandana as a choker and a baseball cap. She added nude shoes to break up the blue tones. The choker and hat are great touches to such a casual ensemble-it adds that needs oomph.

5. Camo X Ripped Jeans X Red

Taylor looked flawless in ripped cropped jeans with a matching white crop camisole, layering a knotted camouflage shirt on top.  The key to this look is layers. The hint of the camisole breaks up the patterned top perfectly. To add a pop of color, make sure to grab a bold hued purse — Taylor chose a red Saint Laurent bag. To finish it off, she added a black belt and white slip-on sandals. Pull her hair up in a top knot and keep your makeup neutral like Taylor.

She wore the braless top with a strategically placed white cardigan that she tied into a knot. The result is a daring but modern twist on an evening look. Taylor styled her brunette tresses with voluminous curls and rocked smokey brown eye makeup and pink lips.

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!

The Ultimate Airport Look By Olivia Culpo

May
26

Olivia Culpo has never had a fashion miss in my book – she always dresses impeccably! And always with a touch of edge! Last month the former Miss Universe 2012 shared an Instagram post before flying out to Vegas wearing one of my favorite airport looks.

OliviaCulpoThe brunette beauty wore a loose-fitting white T-shirt with dark blue cut-off shorts and thigh high boots. The 24-year-old added a gold buckled belt, a Chanel purse and a leather jacket.

The key to this outfit is to make it look effortless – and that’s done by casually tucking the front of the top into the shorts. Olivia’s boots change the look from simple to wow. Just make sure your boots aren’t that high and still comfortable for a flight.

She pulled her locks back into a high bun and finished it off with vintage-inspired sunglasses. It’s the perfect stylish airport look.

Apr

Selena gomez

Selena Gomez is very versatile with her style – one day she’s rocking a sleek top with skinny jeans and heels and then next she’s sporting a bodysuit with ripped denim. Check out three different Selena Gomez looks that can you try this weekend!

1.All Black

Selena chose to rock an all black ensemble, opting for skinny jeans, a loose sleeveless blouse and strappy heels.  The key to this look is the fit of each piece. She chose skintight bottoms, pairing it with a loose blouse with a long hemline. The two balance each other out perfectly. The heels add that understated sex appeal and really pulls the whole look together. This is a really simple look – but if you’re in a rush and you need to look chic but not like you tried to hard – then this is your look.

2. Lace up X Denim

Once again, Selena shows us how versatile she is. The beauty wore a black lace up bodysuit with a denim shirt, oversized blazer and thigh high boots. She made the revealing bodysuit and mini skirt daytime chic by adding a loose fitting jacket and boots that cover practically her entire legs.  The result is a ladylike but sexy take on lace ups – once again proving that she’s a trendsetter.

3. Neutral Trench coat X Flared Jeans

This is another great weekend look and perfect for spring. Selena paired flared denim with a pale blue crop top and a suede trench coat. The coat balances the midriff-baring top; she rolled the sleeves which makes it more daytime wearable. The flared bottoms and sunglasses are great ways to incorporate vintage inspired touches to any look.  She pulled her brunette locks back into a center parted ponytail and kept her makeup minimal – so that the look is fresh, simple and classic.

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.

1. Mini Dress X Denim

Candice Swanepoel wore a simple black mini dress with a denim jacket and hat and looked amazing!  She chose a high neck dress, which balances the whole look.  To give it a more effortless vibe, she wore boots to complete the look.

Kendall Jenner chose a fitted denim jacket to compliment her white cropped top and skinny jeans.  This is such a sexy chic daytime look but still so casual.  Her Chanel espadrille loafers definitely dress the look down while still keeping it classy.  She kept her accessories to a minimum and the result is perfection!

 3. Stripes X White X Denim 

Kim Kardashian took a business type striped shirt and really made it look sexy!  She wore her striped shirt with her denim jacket cuffed, finishing off the outfit with classic white jeans and nude heels.  I love the way she kept a couple of buttons of the top open of her collared shirt but kept the sleeves buttoned up.  Kim cuffed her jacket which I think is brilliant, because it adds a subtle edgy touch to the overall clean cut look.

 6. Buttoned Up Denim

Sarah Jessica Parker wore her denim jacket completely buttoned, a easy way to make the look edgy.  By adding in ripped jeans and boots and a patterned top peeking out of the bottom of her jacket, SJP completed the look. I don’t really see denim jackets buttoned up that often, but I think it’s quite chic!

 7. Dark Denim X Light Denim

Selena Gomez decided to mix a light wash denim jacket with dark high waisted jeans, finishing it off with a black high neck top, gladiator lace up heels and a bright red bag.  This is such a James Dean inspired look!  Draping the denim jacket keeps the look from being to preppy, instead giving her outfit a cool girl vibe.  The bright bag compliments the dark top and pants, while the heels make the look sexy!

 8. Denim Shirt X Jacket

Beyonce paired a light wash denim jacket with a high waisted denim skirt.  She chose a simple white top and nude heels, along with gorgeous Chanel pins and a cream bag.  Yes the Chanel is amazingly gorgeous but what I love most is how she paired similar colored denim with a simple white tee.  If you want to emulate this look but don’t have Chanel pins (don’t worry I don’t either 🙂  ) add more bling on the arms.  I don’t want to make holes in my jacket anyways ( well, I would for Chanel 🙂 ) so putting more jewelry on the arms will still add that ‘wow’ factor.

 9. Denim X Mesh

This is probably my favorite look of all.  This gorgeous lady is Leomie Anderson, a model and blogger and I absolutely love her style!  She paired a light wash loose denim jacket with similar colored ripped denim shorts.  To make the look edgy, she wore mesh loose top with a bralet underneath.  My favorite part about the look is the all white Adidas sneakers.  It’s such a sporty chic look but also really minimalistic, since she keeps things simple by wearing only white and light wash denim.
