Super Bowl Style: Beyonce Makes Knee Socks Sexy at Pepsi Halftime Show

By Brooke

She came, she saw, she conquered…all in heels mind you. We knew Beyonce’s performance for the Pepsi Halftime Show was going to be flawless last night at the Superbowl – why would we expect anything less?! If you were too busy watching the Puppy Bowl and missed it, shame on you! (Click here to watch Bey’s rehearsal footage)

No Jay, no out-of-box guest performers…just a diva who loves to get her dance on and sing her heart out while surrounded by an all female band and a sea of fierce back-up dancers. The rumor of Destiny’ Child reuniting on the halftime stage had been floating around all week and when Kelly and Michelle flew up from underneath the stage- history had been made. How awesome was it to see all these ladies on stage again!!??

If the Pepsi commercial counting down to Bey’s performance didn’t give you heart palpitations, I’m sure her dancing in heels did! What would a Beyonce show be without a corset leotard, heels, and the complete package of Sasha Fierce? Her leather corset leotard with lace embellishments was custom designed by up-and coming New York designer Rubin Singer.

My favorite part of Beyonce’s outfit were her fierce knee-high socks. Has Beyonce brought back the school girl chic look? These socks are great because they elongate your legs and keep them warm while giving the illusion that you’re wearing boots. Black is always a classic, safe color for socks – especially if you’re planning on wearing them to work or happy hour. Colored knee socks go great under riding boots or with heels. I’m pretty sure you won’t be wearing your socks with a leotard, so try them with daisy dukes or a skirt.

Thanks Bey for being such a fashion icon and true inspiration that dreams can come true. Oh yeah and motivation to go to the gym. If she can move like that on stage and I was tired walking from the couch to the chip dip, there is a well-needed intervention coming my way.

5 Style Lessons On How To Wear Polka Dots From Taylor Swift

By Brooke

They’re fun, flirty, and a chronic obsession for Taylor Swift! Polka Dots- a long-lived trend that has been passed down from generation to generation. Snapbacks & Tattoos put snapbacks back on the map, Nelly’s Air Force Ones reminded everyone to get their shoe game together, and Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini’ got ladies thinking about the summer. Fashionistas have been rockin’ polka dots dating all the way back to the ’60s (work it ladies!)

Today, this classic trend works great with beachwear, nightlife, and everyday living. If I had to make one assumption,  I’d say T Swift is completely enthralled with this trend- check her out in the latest ad for Keds!  That being said, let’s take a peek into how to successfully rock polka dots like the expert herself, Ms. Harry Styles (whoops, I mean T. Swift). Continue Reading

Trendy vs Spendy: Leather Snapbacks

By Brooke

 

Teleport back to a time when the only thing people wore were leather jackets, leather pants, leather everything. Fast forward to 2013 and history is starting to repeat itself. Leather snapbacks…who doesn’t love them! But let’s be honest ladies- you hear “snapbacks” and automatically think “for the fellas”. I thought the same exact thing until fashionistas Kat GrahamRihanna, and Brandy brought life back to this trend. Continue Reading

5 Style Lessons from Fifth Harmony

By Brooke

Confession: It’s human nature to naturally be jealous of each another, but it’s most taxing when the envy is towards someone a lot younger, isn’t it? Now that I’ve let all my emotions out on the table, I need everyone to know about five amazing ladies that make up the group Fifth Harmony. Other than the unexpected recent reunion of Destiny’s Child, there hasn’t been a girl group on our radar in years! Similar to groups in the past, Fifth Harmony encompasses talent, attitude and of course FASHION. Each member has their own unique personality and style that is tied together by the chemistry of the group. Fifth Harmony’s style is fun, modern and young. Even though each lady has their own fashion voice, their collective look is kept consistent with a common denominator.

Let’s take a peek at my favorite looks from Fifth Harmony.

Greyscale: Grey is a color that’s in the same family as your whites, blacks and navys. With so much versatility, grey is great because it compliments other basic colors and pastels. From summer to winter, a grey sun dress goes great with a pastel sun hat and bathing suit or rock a white shirt and navy blazer with grey wide leg pants. And of course, let’s not forget about your night on the town- a grey sequined or sparkled dress is perfect for any city girl. Continue Reading
