Last week, the gorgeous model Chrissy Teigen stepped out with her baby girl Luna and husband John Legend for lunch with the Wests – Kanye and Kim Kardashian. The 30-year-old beauty sported an asymetrical black bodysuit with high waisted matching colored denim shorts. This is such a perfect spring and summer look — and it’s very figure flattering.

The bodysuit really makes you streamlined and its so figure flattering. Chrissy has an amazing figure and the bodysuit accentuates her curves. The new mom sported strappy heels – which jazz up the shorts look and give it an elegant touch. To keep the look from being too revealing, she added a long loose fitting sheer cardigan.

She sported black aviator sunglasses while rocking wavy loose tresses and minimal makeup. This is a great day date look or while you’re out with friends. The good thing about this look is that each piece is very versatile for future outfits.

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.

Jul

Chrissy Teigen has to be one of the most down-to-earth models I’ve ever seen.  She’s beautiful, funny and has a great sense of style.  One of her wardrobe staples is shorts, and she loves styling them in various ways. They are literally one of the most versatile pieces a girl can own.  Check out 10 different ways to style shorts like Chrissy Teigen!

1. Blazer X Hat X Mules

Chrissy wore denim cutoff shorts with a white tee, ivory blazer, nude hat and cream colored mules for a day out.  This is a simple look that can also transition into the evening.  The ivory color of the blazer pairs perfectly with a simple white tee, and the hat and mules add dimension to the look.  This outfit is all about different shades of cream and nude, including the finishing touch of a cream colored handbag.  Keep the makeup to a minimum and wear your hair back because this look is all about clean lines and simplicity.

2. Nude Crop Top X White Shorts

The nude crop top compliments the white cutoff shorts, adding a chic touch to this casual look.  Although not pictured, she wore simple tan sandals, which keeps the look relaxed.  She didn’t wear any jewelry and kept her hair and makeup to a minimum.  This is definitely a great low maintenance look that is subtle and still sexy.

3. Thigh Highs X Long Knitted Cardigan

Chrissy transformed the denim cutoff shorts and white tee look to nighttime chic by adding a forest green long knitted cardigan and thigh high tan boots.  This is sexy yet still cool girl chic.  The structured handbag adds in another shade of tan to the overall simple look.  In this look, Chrissy wore shimmery eye shadow, pink lips and wavy hair to glam up the look.

4.  Asymmetrical Tank X Lace Shorts

This next look is strictly black and white. She paired her knitted asymmetrical white top  with lace shorts, a Givenchy Purse and laser cut heels.  This is an edgy look for Chrissy, and she nailed it!  The heels add that tough girl vibe while the shorts make it feminine.  The overall result is chic with an urban touch.

5. Denim X Denim

Chrissy chooses an all denim look, wearing a chambray top in the same shade as her denim shorts.  She pulled her hair back in a messy ponytail and wore smoky eyes to finish off the look.  This take on the all denim look is relaxed yet a touch of edge.  The chain bag add in another element of edgy glam to the look, perfect for a day or night out.

6. Off-the-Shoulder Top X Thigh Highs

Chrissy wears her tan thigh highs again, this time wearing an off-the-shoulder gray top and denim shorts.  She defnielty likes simple outfits that still have that sexy aspect.  I personally love the look of thigh highs and denim cutoffs–its edgy, sexy yet casual.

7. Denim X Hat X Gold

Chrissy pulls out her white tee and chambray top again, but this time styling it completely different.  She keeps the chambray top open so we can see the white top, and adds in a floppy hat, gold sandals and a tan handbag.  This look is definitely more boho than her other all denim look, but it still works!  Its casual yet still fun!

8. Sheer Top X Booties X Hat

Chrissy wears a black hat with a sheer blouse, western inspired belt, cutoff shorts and booties.  This hippie inspired look is so glam, and the bootie shoes show off a lot of leg.  She left several buttons open on her sheer blouse, making it super sexy.  The hat and sunnies add a vintage vibe to the overall look.

9. Off-the-Shoulder Knit X Booties

Chrissy decided to wear several different shades of cream with her denim cutoff shorts. She wore a knitted cream off-the-shoulder top with her cutoffs. She added studded details to the look with her booties and purse.  The off-the-shoulder knit is a great summer piece because althought it’s light, it can keep you warm during the cool nights.

10. Sheer Top X Floral Kimono X Thigh Highs

Chrissy decided to up the sexy factor with a sheer black top and floral kimono with her shorts.  She wore cream colored thigh high boots and her Celine tote.  The thigh highs are perfect for this particular look because it covers most of her legs, balancing the sheer top.  This look is also very boho inspired and will work well both day and night.

Model Style: 6 Style Tricks From Candice Swanepoel

Oct
02

Candice Swanepoel is one of my favorite supermodels!  Not only is she gorgeous, she’s also an animal lover and isn’t afraid of pushing the envelope when choosing her wardrobe.  She is a fan of the nineties (me too!) but she also embraces the inner flower child as well.  That’s what I like about her–she doesn’t conform to a certain style or trend–she wears what she feels like, and it always looks so good!  Take a look below to find out six style tricks from Candice Swanepoel:

1. Wear a colorful, patterned dress:  Candice isn’t afraid of patterns and this dress is absolutely beautiful.  Her hippie chic outfit is the perfect look for a day out, and she tops it with a simple choker that is the perfect accessory for her long dress. She added some retro style Ray Bans and voila, the perfect flower child OOTD.  Choose a dress with a 1970s vibe like this–the floral and colorful pattern is very hippie.  Her dress is the Free People Novella Royale MIdnight Rambler Dress and it’s $176.

2. Add flannel to your outfit:

Candice loves flannel–she not only pairs it with jeans, she also adds it to casual day dresses.  She definitely loves the nineties style, and she incorporates it with any look just by adding flannel.  Make sure to invest in a choker and combat boots and you’re good to go.  I chose two different flannel looks Candice sported because I wanted to show the versatility of the look–she dressed it down with combat boots and a dress, and then dressed it up with nude booties, and an all white look.

3. Pair a pencil skirt with a beanie:

This is a great look because she incorporates a beanie into a fancy look.  She added the beanie to add that cool factor and it works! For this, make sure to have a lot of black–a black beanie, a fitted black skirt and black booties.  The sweater will break up the dark color and give it a nice dimension.  What you get is a sophisticated, tough OOTD or OOTN like Candice.

4. Invest in Capris

Candice looks great in a pair of white capris–pants that stop a few inches above the ankle.  This is a great piece to have in your wardrobe–it’s a classic item that will always be in style.  You can wear it to work, school, on a date, or even make it sexy by pairing it with a crop top.  Try wearing it like Candice, by adding a cream colored sweater and simple stilletos–instantly chic.

5. Pair your Converse Sneakers With a Crop Top

Crop tops are usually reserved for a more sexy look and when Candice paired it with her Converse sneakers, she accomplished that!  Converse sneakers usually makes an outfit look cool but it’s not the typical “sexy” shoe.  The way she paired them with a crop top changes that!  This is such a sexy way of wearing Converse sneakers and it looks so effortless.  If you have sneakers like her, try wearing it like Candice, with a simple crop top and ripped jeans-the results are amazing!

6. Wear tights under your Denim Shorts:

Just because the weather cools down doesn’t mean you have to put away your favorite pair of shorts.  Try this style trick from Candice–add some opaque tights under them.  Candice perfectly paired it with an army green jacket and black beanie but my favorite part?  The boots she finished the look of with.  This is a look I will definitely be sporting this fall.
