70’s inspired looks

One of my favorite fashion eras, the 70s look… This season the 70’s inspired looks include suede (yeah, for spring!), flower power abstract prints, vintage cut denim, and boho flowing draped dresses.

Graphic Stripes

Vivid colors, diagonal lines, criss crossed, and every other direction you can think of are leading the way to style. Stripes are most definitely a staple print and this is the season we will be shown why.

Lace

The spring femininity of florals has been replaced with lace this season. Pastels may be a more common occurrence but all colors are welcome!

Tie-Dyed fabrics

Piggy backing off the 70’s inspired look, tie-dye is shifting from the attic to the “must wear now rack” in your closet.

Lightweight Denim

Chambray and lightweight denim are making a statement this spring. It can be worn alone or paired with any of your favorite wardrobe pieces. There are no wrongs here!

Exposed Shoulders

This 90’s comeback of exposed shoulders happens to be one of the hottest trends. Halter necklines with drop sleeves, cutout shoulders, and total off the shoulder looks will be making a showcase this season.

Business Casual Friday

As the end of the week approaches and your exhaustion begins to catch up with you, it gets increasingly harder to slip on a pair of heels and a dress every morning for work. But taking a business casual approach to Fridays can make that last day of work so much more enjoyable!

To stay in trend with the upcoming spring season, look for a blouse with shoulder length or short sleeves. Something light blue and airy would be perfect to stay in line with seasonal trends! If you want your frame to appear slightly more petite, try to find a blouse that’s hip length to take emphasis off your shoulders. Keep it comfortable with a pair of dark skinny jeans and nude flats. Finish off your look with a simple gold necklace and matching gold bracelet, and you can approach your last work day before the weekend in style! Dress well!

Black and White and Leather

There’s nothing that says simple and chic like black and white, and nothing says edgy like a little bit of leather. Give your simple black and white outfit an attitude makeover with your favorite leather accents!

Leather leggings are always a fun place to start when constructing an outfit. They’re simple and sleek (and maybe a little difficult to put on), and we love them! Grab a pair of black leather leggings, plain or textured, and pair them with a comfy white sweater, something to keep you warm in this chilly weather. Add some sophistication with a pair of strappy black heels, or, if you want to keep things more comfortable, a set of black flats. Add a pop of color with a fun statement necklace and some nice gold studs. Throw your hair up into a sleek bun, paint on some dark red lipstick, and you have an outfit that’s sleek, edgy, and classy all at once!

For something a little more casual, try a black leather jacket instead. Match it with a pair of your favorite distressed jeans and that perfect white t-shirt we’re always on the lookout for. With a pair of pink studs and a simple short necklace, you add a subtle bit of color and some softness to your edgy outfit. To dress this outfit up a bit, jump into a pair of classic black booties. To stay more relaxed, slip into a comfy pair of converse. Either way you choose to go, you’ll be rockin’ some fabulous attitude. A bit of soft pink lipstick will tie everything together, and you’re ready to rock some trendy street style. Dress well!

How to Survive a Warmer Christmas

With the recent winter temperatures falling on the warmer side, it can be a little confusing to fumble through your closet for the perfect outfit that is trendy and won’t cause you to overheat. Keep your outfit simple and the pieces light.

If the weather in your area is still somewhat cool, choose a simple blouse and pants pair to avoid too many layers. White pants are simple and clean, and a long sleeved, jewel toned blouse will provide a pop of fun, vibrant color. Add a long necklace and a pair of black booties to tie the look together.

For a more formal winter party, a black jumpsuit is the perfect way to go. It keeps your clothing light and your look classy and elegant. A pair of red pumps will add a splash of color, and some gold accessories will round out the outfit.

If you’re experiencing a Texas winter, the weather may allow you to wear far less clothing. A simple white romper is a good place to begin, as it allows for a touch of elegance and will keep you cool in the subtle heat. Pair the romper with a light kimono of dark colors to make your outfit more dynamic and simple pair of wedges or flats. Dress well and Merry Christmas!

Everything else will be bright and shiny this season, why should you be an exception? The holidays are the perfect excuse to wear daring and beautiful sequined pieces. You can be as dressy or casual as you choose, but there’s nothing better than enjoying the holidays with a cute outfit that makes you feel good and puts a smile on everyone else’s face. If sequined outfits are a bit out of your comfort zone, this is the perfect time to try them out. You can go as simple as a jeweled sweater or as bold as a completely sequined dress. As long as you love what you wear, those around you will love it too, so while your decorating the tree this year, don’t forget to add some glamour to your ensemble!
