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.
A striped tee and a trench coat are a timeless combination that pairs well with any denim silhouette.
Cozy & Comfortable
Is there anything that a chunky knit doesn’t go perfectly with? The flared silhouette is ideal for pairing with your favorite sweater and booties combo.
October 17th, 2019 by Jennifer Beile How Katie Holmes Achieved Her Chic Fall Style & How You Can Too
Katie Holmes has recently stepped back into the limelight via fashion week paparazzi photos and everyone couldn’t help but notice her sleek and sophisticated style choices. We’ve always loved her accessible girl next door look, simple and classic, but she has come out on another level of chic this fall season. Whether it’s a post break up glow up or a renewed sense of creativity being in the midst of fashion week, Katie Holmes has redefined her style and everyone is paying attention.
Here is how Katie Holmes has achieved her chic fall style and how you can easily recreate her looks.
Redefining the Classics
One of my favorite looks from Katie Holmes’ style resurgence this season is the Khaite cashmere bra and cardigan set. Holmes’ modern take on styling a classic cardigan quickly made waves through Instagram and the fashion landscape. To recreate Holmes’ luxury comfort look, you don’t have to spend thousands.
Masculine with a Feminine Edge
Katie Holmes’ has mastered the look of taking a typically masculine style, like a suit, and adding a feminine edge that results in a power look that results in a sophisticated, chic look that turns heads. Her impressive take on the Gabriela Hearst suit in bold cobalt can be replicated easily, keeping in mind that an amazing tailor is priceless.
Holmes’ has always been the ‘girl next door’; the preppy, good girl that we can all rely on. In her recent style experimentation, she has been stepping out in more adventurous styles with hints of leather, lace, and sheer details, like her fashion week look for the Zimmerman Soho party, a subtly sensual air that can be put together effortlessly when keeping in mind that less can be more.
Holmes’ proves the power of a classic basic can be worn with elevated pieces to create simple, yet chic looks. Basics are closet staples and with a little patience, searching for those perfect statement pieces to pair with them will be just what you need to refresh your wardrobe, like Katie did when she wore a vibrant rust colored Mango blazer atop a white tee and beige wide-leg jeans.
