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

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.

Model Style: 6 Style Tricks From Lily Aldridge

May
05

Lily Aldridge embodies the word ‘chic’–she’s got a great sense of style, and can make any look classy and timeless. She’s a Victoria’s Secret Angel, a Sports Ilustrated cover girl, and a mom!  I love that about her–she has a family and a career–and a keen eye for putting together outfits that scream elegant!  If you love Lily as much as me, keep reading to find out 6 style tricks to dress like Lily!

1. Overalls X White Shirt X Red Lips

Lily wore lightwash flared overalls with a white off-the-shoulder shirt–two simple pieces but always classic.  She transformed the look by adding red lips, tan heels, and a pink handbag.  The off-the-shoulder top gives the look a sexy vibe, perfectly complimenting the red lips.  These are actually the same Frame Denim flared overalls Kate Bosworth wore but in a lighter shade.  The key to this look is choosing the lightwash overalls and pairing it with the daring lip and shoulder baring white too.

2. Cropped Top X Cropped Trousers

This breezy look on Lily represents springtime!  The white crop top has a feminine and unique shape, exposing some of her midriff. Her cropped trousers/culottes balance the whole look–they’re loose and high waisted, which compliments the crop top.  The white and yellow tones of her outfit screams spring time, and the tan bag and mules give off an elegant vibe.  This look reminds me of the 1960s classic look or something Audrey Hepburn could have worn, but the midriff showing really modernizes the look.

3. All White X A Splash of Pink

All white-a quick way to do ‘fancy’ without really trying. Lily nailed this look–fitted high waisted trousers with a tucked in tank, and topped with a duster coat and nude heels.  For a pop of color, she added a pink bag, which is a great way to break up the all white look.  The key to this look is to make sure the trousers have a fitted waist, so you don’t get lost in the layers.  The pink bag is a great handbag color because it’s not your typical color and it really softens and feminizes any outfit it’s paired with.

4. Leopard X Gold

When Lily wants to add edge to an outfit, she likes to add a little leopard and gold.  In the first photo below, Lily dressed up a white turtleneck and black pants with a leopard purse and studded gold and black chelsea boots.  These two accessories give the whole outfit an edgy vibe!  Both the leopard print and the gold accents are must haves for any wardrobe because they will always be stylish.  The second photo below is another take on the leopard and gold.  Lily wore a animal print strapless top and paired it with black trousers.  She accents the look with gold arm cuffs and bracelets, making the outfit so night out sexy!

5. Evening Coat X Deep V Dress

Lily is wearing probably one of my all time favorite evening coats–it’s a unique color–I’d call it a mix of blush and tan. The material for this coat is silk but any type of coat that has that slinky, satin-y material will definitely work. I love the fact that you don’t have to tie anything with her coat, it’s simple, streamlined and super long.  To balance the coat, she wore a red deep v long sleeve dress (Alice + Olivia $242).  Lily really shows you can wear a braid and it can still look sexy for a night out–for those nights you don’t want your hair down or in a ponytail.  The braid looks great with the whole outfit and subtle makeup plus drop earrings. She finished off the look by wearing black strappy shoes–classic heels that every girl should have!  The coat she’s wearing is the Sofie Coat by Wes Gordon ($2890), but check out this similar camel coat on JohnLewis.com.

6. All Black Maxi Skirt X Crop Top

Instead of wearing a mini skirt, choose a maxi skirt a la Lily.  The black skirt looks amazing when paired with a crop top.  The one Lily wore is showing a lot of stomach and clavicle, which balances out the long, loose skirt.  I love the all black look of her outfit–it’s fancy, chic and easy to recreate.  For the crop top, choose one that you feel most comfortable in–for Lily, she wore a deep V crop top but if that’s not something you want to wear, pick one that goes a little higher on the chest. The key for this look is to wear a sleeveless crop top with a maxi skirt.  Make sure to wear heels for this look so the skirt doesn’t drag and finally, pull your hair back in a simple middle parted ponytail to complete the look.  Add a few bracelets and some simple earrings for the accessories. Boohoo.com has similar bralet for only $20!  Misguided has a similar skirt for $50.

Style Inspired: Vanessa Hudgens’ Floral Maxi Dress

May
01

Vanessa Hudgens has an amazing sense of style–it’s a little boho, a little hippie and so feminine chic!  She recently posted a pic and video on instagram of her wearing this gorgeous floral cut out maxi dress and I was speechless!  As you can see in her instagram pic below, it is a breathtaking dress–from the label, Flynn Skye.

You can  purchase the exact dress for $198. The dress is called the Flynn Skye ‘Err Night’ Maxi Dress in the pattern called ‘White Gatsby.’ There are 10 different colors/patterns you can get but be aware, the dress is pretty much sold out. I’m hoping in a few weeks, due to demand, they will restock but if you’re a size small, I saw a few available in a couple of colors/patterns.  I have to say that if you can’t find your size, check out the other Flynn Skye pieces–there are similar styles that are still in stock and equally gorgeous.  All of pieces are designed by Amber Farr-she designs them in Venice, CA and all items are made in LA.

In paparazzi pics you can see the whole look-she paired the beautiful dress with a moto jacket (Elliot Label Motorcycle Jacket, $999), which gave the outfit an edgy vibe.  She finished off the look with 70’s inspired platform heels (Saint Laurent Candy Sandals, $895) a white bag (Elisabetta Franchi Geneva Bag, $721) and round sunglasses (The Row, $487).

If you check out the dress of Flynn Skye’s website, they also show how many wears you can wear the dress.  You can have the sleeves up high on your shoulders or lower.  You also can leave the string around your neck untied as well.  Tell me what you think of it below!

3 Spring Looks To Try This Weekend!

Apr
29

If want to try something new this weekend but need inspiration–you’re in luck, because I found three different looks that you could be wearing this weekend!  They’re all different but perfect for spring days (and nights).  Make sure to let me know which spring look is your fave!

1. Florals X Denim

Eiza Gonzalez nailed the floral look when she chose a brightly colored top to compliment her low rise jeans.  The turtleneck detail is chic and perfectly balances the peek of stomach showing while the short sleeves will keep you cool this spring.  I love the bright colors of the flowers on her top and you can purchase a similar look here at Asos.com for only $63.  Bright blue sunglasses will always give your outfit that cool element and is a great way to add color to any look.  Blue sunglasses is a definite must have this spring and summer! Check out these blue mirror Ray Bans! Finally, her blue colored lace up boots at that edgy element while still providing comfort.  Just because it’s spring doesn’t mean you have to put your boots away–it is a simple way to made your look edgy!

2. Overalls X White Tee

This is such a classic look! Kate Bosworth is all about simplicity, and what’s more perfect than this blue denim and a white t-shirt?  The classic combo gets an updated twist–flared 1970s style overalls.  While the style might not be everyone’s cup of tea, it’s a timeless look that will always be stylish.  I love how she paired it with a high neck white t-shirt, which perfectly compliments the shape of the overalls.  She added classic sunnies and darker beige sandals with a lighter toned purse.  Her overalls are by Frame Denim, and can be purchased here for $299.

3. All Black Tank and Trousers

This is such an effortless combo that can be worn as an OOTN or date look.  Kate Hudson paired a slinky, fitted black spaghetti strapped top with high waisted trousers, adding a simple belt.  The red lips gives the entire outfit an elegant vibe.  The shape of the top is not something I’ve seen as a night out look but when you tuck the shirt in and add the belt, it transform the top to night out fancy.  This is a good look to try when you’re going for sleek and sophisticated.  The two toned clutch is a great detail to finish off the look.  If you want a super fitted look like Kate’s and can’t find a similar top, try wearing a bodysuit with a similar neckline.  Asos makes a great bodysuit that looks nearly identical to Kate’t top–and it’s only $18!

Style Inspired: Bella Hadid’s Coachella Look

Apr
26

Bella Hadid always tends to put together outfits that screams laidback chic and while at Coachella 2015, she did not disappoint!  One of her outfits really stood out to me and it’s so easy to recreate! Take a look at her amazing outfit from this year’s Coachella:

Bella’s outfit is a great look to recreate this spring/summer.  What I love most about the look is how, even though she’s wearing shorts and a strappyy bodysuit, she’s really not showing that much skin because of the cover up.  The cover up makes the look really wearable and something you could easily wear out and about without feeling uncomfortable or exposed.

The key to her look is the cover up, which is actually dress!  The exact item is called the ‘Rex’ dress by Stone Cold Fox.  You can purchase the white dress with button detailing for $387. It’s a great addition to your wardrobe because you can wear it like Bella or wear it like a dress.

Misguided has a similar bodysuit as Bella’s for $30.  She’s also wearing vintage Levi’s denim shorts, and there are a couple of similar one’s on Asos’ marketplace.  To purchase a similar belt, check out his western looking one on Asos.com for only $18.

Check out some more photos from Bella’s instagram in this amazing look!  Tell me what you think of her outfit below!

Model Style: 6 Style Tricks From Behati Prinsloo

Apr
21

Behati Prinsloo is a supermodel, a Victoria’s Secret Angel, and the wife of hottie Adam Levine.  On top of that she has the coolest style–it’s a little rocker, a little boho, a little edgy–but always effortless.  The Namibian-born model is the queen of casual chic but knows exactly how to rock a look at an event.  Read on to find out 6 style tricks from the ever stylish Behati Prinsloo.

1. Concert Tees

Behati is a big fan of concert tees, a piece that will always make your look edgy.  She gives off the laid back rocker vibe with her concert tee by wearing it with shorts, chelsea boots, a gold choker and blue tinted sunglasses.  The flannel around the waist really finishes off the look, making it very 1990’s grunge chic.

The supermodel takes the concert tee to the next level by pairing it with a black mini skirt.  She keeps the look pretty simple, pairing the t-shirt with black sneakers and bag.  Follow her lead and bring a chambray top as a jacket in case it gets cool at night.  The skirt and concert tee combo is very rocker chic and you can definitely wear this on a night out!

2.Black X Chambray

When in doubt, wear all black and pair it with a light wash chambray top.  In the first photo, Behati is wearing a black top and jeans, topped with her chambray top and a couple of necklaces.  She loves 1990’s style and this look is definitely inspired by that decade.

She keeps the theme of black and blue in the second look as well.  A black crop top and mini skirt, along with knee high black socks and tennis shoes.  This time she has the chambray around the waist and she added a backwards black baseball cap. This look is the epitome of cool girl and so easy to recreate!  This is probably one of my favorite looks because it makes a black mini skirt so casual and daytime!

3. Flannel

Behati loves flannel–a lot of these looks pictured here have flannel incorporated in the outfit!  Flannel always reminds me of grunge, rock and Kurt Cobain–it’s a piece that will always make your look effortlessly cool and edgy.  For Behati, she loves wearing it with ripped denim, a black top and a choker.  The flannel adds color to the look and paired with the maroon Doc Martens–1990’s perfection!

4.The New T-Shirt and Jeans Combo

A grey t-shirt and white jeans is the new classic–it’s modern, fresh and two classic colors.  The combo is spring/summer ready and perfect for parties, dates, night outs or school.  The soft grey color tone of the top is a must have basic piece for any wardrobe, and the white jeans and pumps are items that can be used over and over again in many different ways. Notice that Behati kept her accessories to a minimum, opting for a a few gold bangles and a tiny necklace–for this look minimalism is key!

 5. Maxi Dress Casual

A maxi dress is usually reserved for fancier events and often paired with heels, but Behati decided to do the exact opposite-and it works!  She paired her grey maxi with a cropped leather jacket, sneakers and hat–very boho casual here.  The simple grey and black combo is complimented with a gold dangling necklace, watch and earrings.  This is more of a boho/rocker hybrid look and adding the sneakers keeps the look from being too feminine.  Keep in mind that she chose a maxi dress that is made with a more clingy/bodycon type of material, which is key, because it’s paired with a loose jacket and sneakers.

 6. Menswear Inspired OOTN

This menswear inspired onto is all about balance–she chose a fitted black crop top and paired it with loose trousers. The belt is a good addition, not just to hold up the pants of course, but to add a gold detail to the entire look.  She paired it with black flat boots and handbag.  She kept her makeup and hair simple, which goes perfectly with the menswear inspired look.  The crop top really makes the look sexy but the high neck of it keeps the look from being to revealing.

Style Inspired: How to Wear Bodysuits Like Kim Kardashian

Apr
13

Bodysuits are a great addition to your wardrobe, not only are they flattering, they are extremely versatile.  This season has been all about the bodysuit and with good reason.  A bodysuit can literally look good paired with anything.  You don’t have to worry about tucking your shirt in or if you’re lower back is peeking out.  You can wear a body suit with a pair of shorts, trousers, skirt, etc, etc, etc. Kim Kardashian has been the queen of bodysuits, and she always wears them well. Take a look at three different looks with bodysuits and where you can purchase similar pieces.

As a footnote, some bodysuits have ways to unbutton the crotch area when you have to go to the bathroom and some don’t, so make sure to keep that in mind when purchasing.  For me, it is a hassle to go to the bathroom with a bodysuit, but I love them so much it doesn’t bother me that much. Ok awkward talk done, now on to the looks!

1. Jeans X Bodysuit

A white bodysuit and jeans combo is the new t-shirt and jeans.  This modern twist to the classic look will make you stand out in any crowd.  Kim chose a long sleeve bodysuit and paired it with denim and added the wow factor of gold heels. Check out this exact dupe of Kim’s bodysuit at Missguided for only $30!

2. Skirt X Bodysuit

The best type of skirt to go with a bodysuit is a high waisted bodycon skirt.  The reason? It is the most figure flattering because it will really enhance the waist.

The first look is very daytime chic.  With the shorter sleeves and fitted midi skirt, it definitely screams summer.  Check out this similar bodysuit here for only $16.

If you want to look more night out ready, try Kim’s second look pictured below, a white turtleneck and cream colored maxi skirt. To purchase a white turtleneck bodysuit similar to hers, click here for one that costs only $20!

3. Trousers X Bodysuit

A simple high neck bodysuit can be the base of a great business outfit.  For Kim, she paired it with a white blazer and high waisted trousers.  To add a pop, make sure to add a vampy lip to keep the look from being too preppy.  To purchase a similar high neck white bodysuit, check out this dupe here for only $24.99.
