November 13th, 2017 by Melanie Sutrathada 6 Holiday Outfit Ideas to Try This Season

The countdown to the holiday season has already begun. Whether you’re scouring Pinterest for the perfect Friendsgiving recipe or shopping for presents for your loved ones, the last thing you’ll want to worry about is what to wear to all of your upcoming events. We’re here to help; here are six no-fuss holiday outfit ideas to make your season a little easier!

For a dressier holiday event, opt for a black skater skirt with a hint of tulle. Incorporate forest green hues to make it look more festive.

 

There’s something about velvet textures that just screams “wear me!” during the holiday season. Layer a camisole or slip dress over an embellished turtleneck to add extra flair to your look.

 

Of course, pops of bold red or forest green are always a top choice for the holidays.

 

Want a comfy and fashionable dinner party look? Opt for a chunky knit sweater (it’ll help hide a food coma!) and a pair of black leggings.

 

Fashion goal for the rest of 2017: rock more sequins!

 

If these fashion tips don’t work for you, you can always go for a tried-and-true all-black outfit.

November 10th, 2017 by Melanie Sutrathada How to Mix Masculine and Feminine Style

If you’re going for an aesthetic that combines both masculine and feminine style, you’ve come to the right place! We’ve put together a collection of outfits that mix the best of both worlds. Our favorite part? You probably have a lot of these pieces already in your closet!

Finally, a reason to bring back that army coat you have tucked away in the back of your closet. Dress up the piece by styling it over a top and skirt combo, and you’re good to go!

 

While an oversized hoodie might not be a fashion statement on its own, there’s no reason it can’t serve as the focal point with another jacket layered over it. Balance this masculine outfit with over-the-knee boots and a baker boy hat!

 

A nice set of earrings and a light pastel sweater are the only ladylike touches you’ll need to upgrade your everyday work slacks.

 

Curate the perfect masculine and feminine outfit combination by playing around with layers and details.

 

Start from the bottom and work your way up. Style a pair of grungy combat boots with a more feminine piece like a teddy bear jacket.

 

Steal a page from Justin Timberlake’s style book, and get your “suit and tie” on. Just add a bright red lip color, a neutral clutch and a simple pair of heels like Annabelle Fleur did here.

October 31st, 2017 by Jennifer Beile A Foolproof Guide to Mixing Prints

Mixing prints isn’t a new trend, but it can still be quite daunting. You don’t want to look like you got dressed in the dark! It’s totally possible to mix prints and still look chic by following a few simple guidelines.

Mixing prints is a big trend this fall season, so check out my tips below to get started!

 

Know your neutrals.
Stripes, leopard, and floral prints are considered neutral patterns, because they mix easily with any other pattern.

 

Consider size and scale.
Play around with the size and scale of your prints. The same print in different sizes tend to pair well together. Choose one dominate print and pair it with a smaller print.

Color-coordinate.
Pair prints that share a color to bring them together effortlessly.

 

Go graphic.
Pair your graphic tee with a fun printed bottom or layer. A graphic tee with a plaid blazer is super trendy this season!

 

Create space between your prints.
Wear a belt to break up patterns, or pair a printed top with printed shoes. Space between the two prints will keep the outfit looking clean instead of too busy.

A turtleneck layered over a bodycon dress or skirt makes for the perfect date night outfit in cooler weather.

 

Invest in some classic neutral-colored turtlenecks that you can wear every fall. If you’re looking for something more trendy, go for one with details like small bell sleeves to instantly elevate an outfit.

 

A turtleneck is a stylish piece that works great for layering up in the cold. Recreate this outfit by layering a graphic tee over your a sweater in the same color. Top off the look with a long coat.

 

Mix and match textures this fall by bundling overalls and a chunky turtleneck sweater.

 

Go full-on monochrome.  It’s an easy and stylish option when you’re figuring out how to wear a colorful turtleneck!

 

If the above fashion tips don’t work for you, keep it simple and stylish with a turtleneck, ripped jeans and knee-high boots. You’ll be feeling catwalk-worthy in no time!
