Trend Bite: How to Wear a Maxi Dress as a Skirt

Style Video: how to wear a maxi dress as a skirt

This tip, like many others, came to me in that moment of staring into my closet saying “I have nothing to wear.” As I gaze at my clothes as a painter would colors and brushes, I dream up ways to pair the pieces I own in a different way. It’s basically out of necessity, but it sure does make my wardrobe go the distance and helps my shopping trips become fewer.

Canadian Tuxedo: Rihanna’s New Uniform?

Rihanna Loves Denim

Denim is one of those trends that will never go out of style. Denim killed it in the 80′s, was the THING in the 90′s, and is certainly resurfacing in everyone’s wardrobes present day! Our girl Rihanna is a total fan of the denim on denim trend and rocks it quite frequently… but always in a unique and quirky way! Whether it’s your dad’s vintage jean jacket or a pair of jean shorts you picked up from the thrift store, make this trend your own!

 

This jean look by RiRi is my favorite because it’s not too in your face and is flirty and bright enough for Spring!

Copy this look with Delia’s Studded Denim Shorts  (on sale for only $9.50) and this Forever 21 Oversized Chambray Shirt ($24.80). Throw on a pastel colored shirt, a fun headband and some funky heels and you’ll be ready for a casual night on the town!

Can you say fun, funky and completely risky! I’m not saying COMPLETELY commit to mimicking this look, but the top and bottom can be matched with other pieces from your wardrobe to create a fun outfit for clubbing or music festivals! On sale for $17.99, this Delia’s Denim Sweetheart Bustier goes great with high-waisted pants for just enough coverage and hiding that navel area! And as for the skirt, I am obsessed with this Miss KL denim skater skirt. (did I mention it’s 41% off the original price…score!) At first glance, the skirt doesn’t appear like denim, but the unique pattern  makes it totally wearable for casual Fridays, brunches in the city, or going for a walk.

Don’t be afraid to commit to the denim-on-denim trend. It’s easy, inexpensive and something you always want to have in your closet.

Spring Trend: See-Through Accessories (Under $50!)

A girl can sometimes only dream of having everything from the runways fill up her closet. Just because you can’t afford things straight off  the runway doesn’t mean your style has to suffer!  Be there the first of your friends to prematurely bring a trend into the spring season! The fashion Gods have revealed that see through accessories are making a comeback for this spring, so make sure to dust off those jelly sandals jump of the bandwagon. Here are a couple of see through accessories we can totally see in your spring wardrobe!

Clear Collar

Lucite Collar

Add over a plain tee to trendify your look. This hue is great for Easter week!
Tag: Lucite Peter Pan Collar Necklace, $10.80 @ Forever 21.

 

Apple Charm Necklace

See- Through Apple Necklace Forever 21

Simple, cute and the tiniest accessory that adds the most amount of chic to an outfit. Simple charm necklaces are the best because they’re the opposite of statement jewelry.  They don’t take attention away from your outfit, which is important if your rocking your shoes or dress as a focal point. Remember: you always want to make a statement but never more than one fashion statement at a time!

 Neon Necessity

see through bag

 

This is by far my favorite accessory! Why? (Well, I’m glad you asked!) You can match this bag with your everyday work attire or use it for a night out on the town. This trend works great from spring to the summer season. Think ahead to the summer…beach, bathing suits, sunscreen, neon bag- totally makes sense! And for $14.80, this accessory makes sense for you!

Tag: Neon Boston Bag, $14.50 @ Forever 21.

Transparent Details


shoes

 

How amazing are these heels? Plus they’re on sale for only $31.49 so grab them while you can! I’m sure when you heard  see-through shoes, you immediately thought of trashy stripper-like heels, right? I always did! When incorporating this trend into your wardrobe, the accessory doesn’t have to be 100% see -through. The thing I love about this shoe style  is the light yellow color with transparent details will  perfectly brighten up your blacks and grays or contrast off of spring colors like lavender or blue.

Tag: Wentzell Shoe, $90.00 $31.49 @ Aldo.

Crystal-Clear Hoop

Vince Camuto Lucite earrings $25 1. Vince Camuto is amazing. 2. These earrings are only $25!  3. They feel glam, yet tribal chic. 4. How can you resist? I know we can’t!

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

Five Style Lessons from Elizabeth Taylor

By Brooke

Like everything in life, we must learn from the past to prepare for the future. History repeats itself…over and over again, especially in the world of fashion. Diamonds are a girl’s best friend wasn’t just a song popularized by Marilyn Monroe but also the lifestyle of Elizabeth Taylor. With the premiere of Liz & Dick over the weekend (insert opinions on movie here), a Blast from the Past Style Lesson is well deserved. Elizabeth Taylor is a fashion icon who encompassed class, sexiness and confidence in everything she wore. Whether it was a pair of studs, a diamond necklace or a studded headpiece, Liz had an undeniable love for jewelry. Liz would match the elegance of diamonds in a casual outfit of capris, flats, head scarf, and shirt and sport the same jewels with a long flowing gown, kitten heels and fur shawl. Think twice before you step outside in a pair of sweats ladies. Elizabeth reminds us that class is a look that should be carried from day to night. No matter what time of day, you can never go wrong with a perfectly stenciled cat-eye, juicy red lipstick, and loose kept curls. Let’s take a glance at our favorite Elizabeth Taylor looks.

1. Turbans. Bad hair day approved. If you thought this trend was something new, think again. Liz shows that this trend can go from super casual to super chic in no time! A turban can finish the equation to the lazy beach bum or the red carpet diva. Here’s a video we made showing how to DIY your own turban by simply tying your scarf. Continue Reading
