Aug
15

Instead of grabbing black pieces for your go-to wardrobe this summer, take a chance and rock all red. The bold color looks incredible on all skin tones and it will definitely make you stand out in a crowd.  Check out three different but equally amazing ways to sports all red this summer!

1.Hailey Baldwin

Hailey stunned in an off-the-shoulder red top with a matching high-waisted skirt. The model chose the perfect skirt for this look-it featured a thigh slit that balanced the length.  She added lace up cream heels to lengthen her legs and break up the bright colored look.  With this type of outfit, keep the hair and makeup simple so that the bold color is front and center.

2.Bella Hadid

Bella stood out in her off-the-shoulder ribbed crop top with matching joggers. The model’s look is a modern twist on sweat pants.  The drawstring bottoms show off her tiny waist and the strapless top is still really feminine and flattering. Add a choker and combat boots for an edgy touch to the bold ensemble.

3. Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez took a more casual approach to the all red look. The pop star chose a red hoodie, pairing it with fitted sweat bottoms. Since the sweatsuit is super relaxed, she balanced it perfected with strappy white heels. She styled her dark tresses back and opted to add large framed sunglasses to finish off her chic airport look.

3 Selena Gomez Looks You Should Try This Weekend

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.

Trend Alert: 3 Ways To Wear An Oversized Sweater

Dec
01

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

The Hottest Shoe Trend of Summer!

May
29

Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean you have to only wear sandals or open toed shoes.  It’s actually more fun to wear non-sandals during the hot months!  Yes, it might get a little sweaty or warm when your foot is in a sock, but hey, it does look good.  Boots, tennis shoes and thigh highs–aka wearing closed toed shoes–is the hottest trend this summer.  So put away your sandals, and check out 5 ways to wear your closed-toed shoes year round!

1) Combat Boots

Kylie Jenner blew me away with her Coachella outfits and teal hair, but I think my favorite part was the boots–she rocked cream colored Timberland boots.  In the below picture, Kylie was out and about in LA after Coachella and decided to rock a skintight dress, baggy coat, baseball cap, and her Timbs.  The Timbs provide that perfect touch of edge to her look.

In the second photo, Kylie wore her Timbs to Coachella, pairing it with white hot shorts, acrop top, long vest and a baseball cap.  Like the first look, the outfit is super simple, and the boots give a rough vibe to it.  If she wore it with sandals or heels, it would be too feminine and soft–the boots toughen up the whole look.

2) Thigh Highs

Chrissy Teigen wore thigh high boots with a gray tank, denim shorts and a black handbag.  The shorts and tank are really simple, but when you add the thigh high boots, it makes the wholesome look more sexy and more nighttime fancy.  The thigh highs will literally take any shorts and tank combo and make it sexier and so chic.

Selena Gomez’ outfit is similar to Chrissy’s–except the top is 3/4 sleeves and she chose a bib necklace and black thigh highs.  Tucking in her shirt is not only figure flattering, but it shows off the shorts.  She left the back part of the shirt untucked, which gives some coverage, but it adds that effortlessly cool touch to it.

3) Sneakers

Rihanna styled the perfect outfit for a night out if you don’t want to wear heels.  She wore her Nike sneakers with a white bodysuit, denim shorts, red lips and a baseball cap.  She also added a printed backpack, a bodychain, bracelets, a choker and really large hoops.  The key to this look is adding a lot of accessories, like RiRi, and the bold red lip–that’s what will take the sneakers to nighttime chic.

4) Booties

Candice Swanepoel’s outfit is so on point–from her white tank, to her western belt and white wash denim shorts.  The black handbag and snakeskin patterned booties make it such an edgy, fun look.  The booties provide a nice pattern, while the black bag and belt balance out the light top and jeans.  Perfect for a day out of shopping, a date, or school.

In the next photo, Vanessa Hudgens was photographed wearing overalls, a black crop top and baseball cap and studded booties.  Overalls can be toughened up by incorporating a lot of black.  The crop top shows some skin, which makes it sexier than your average overall get up, while the edge is introduced through the boots and hat.

So next time you’re heading out the door in shorts and tank, instead of reaching for sandals or flip flops, pull out your boots or sneakers to change up your look.  These shoes will always make your look sexy yet still so chic!  Let me know which look you like best!
