December 5th, 2019 by Jennifer Beile 3 Ways to Pull Holiday Style Inspiration from Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift stuns on the January 2020 cover of British Vogue and the styling of the photo shoot is exactly what I have always envisioned my ideal holiday style to be. The styles featured in the photo shoot range from subdued classic mod ’60s, a la Twiggy, to effortlessly modern and feminine. Oftentimes when drooling over a fashion magazine feature, I am stumped on how to pull inspiration from the couture styling, but I am pleasantly surprised by the attainable, yet elevated, styles showcased here.
Take a look at three ways to pull attainable holiday style inspiration from Taylor Swifts British Vogue photo shoot.

Sparkle and Shine

Is any holiday season complete without at least one appearance of a sparkly or shiny number? Taylor’s eye-catching top in this photo is my inspiration for celebrating the upcoming end of this decade.

Rich Color Tones

Rich color tones, like deep green and warm burgundy, are a winter staple. Unexpected pieces in these colors, like the green suede knee-high boots that Taylor is rocking in her spread, will instantly elevate and set your holiday style apart.

Preppy Chic

If there has been one trend that caught me a bit by surprise this year, and quite honestly by delight, it is the resurgence of a classic, preppy chic style. The cover of British Vogue features Taylor in a Chanel tweed jacket and a buttoned-up white blouse looking effortlessly classic.

November 14th, 2019 by Jennifer Beile Flared Jeans: The Newest Celebrity-Influenced Denim Trend

Certain denim silhouettes that will always be classic, namely skinny, straight, and bootcut. In the past couple of years, denim styles have been evolving and we’ve been seeing more and more so-called “anti-skinny” jeans that seem to be more than just a fad. Continuing this trend is the resurgence of the ’70s born flared jeans. They had a brief comeback in the early 2000’s, were recently seen on the latest fashion week runways, and have finally trickled down to some of the most stylish celebrities, which, let’s face it, is the real sign that a trend is about to make its way into the mainstream fashion scene once again.

Margot Robbie, Gigi Hadid, Harry Styles, and Victoria Beckham are just of the few fashion forward celebrities that have been spotted recently rocking the resurging denim trend. If their street style is any indication, it’s time to invest in a pair of flared denim for the season. Take a look below how to style them this season.

Channel the ’70s

No one was afraid to take chances with fashion in the ’70s. Channel that bold energy by using vibrant colors and funky prints for a fearless look.

Play With Layers & Proportions

Adding layers can aid in a more dramatic effect of the flare detail.

Edge It Up

A pair of distressed kicked flares not only lets you show off your favorite ankle boots but add a bit of edge to your look, giving the silhouette a modern update.

Classic Touch

A striped tee and a trench coat are a timeless combination that pairs well with any denim silhouette.
