DIY Breakfast at Tiffany’s Costume

Everyone knows Audrey Hepburn’s famous Breakfast at Tiffany’s black ensemble. It oozed effortless class and elegance and was a great reminder of just how stylish black could be. It also makes for a quick and fashionable last minute DIY costume for Halloween.

Start with a simple black dress, something every women could use in their closet for several repeat performances. A dress that is straight or form fitting would highlight the feminine silhouette of your body. Next, find a pair of simple black gloves for that touch of classy elegance. Then, slip on a pair of black heels to emphasize your legs or black flats if you want to remain more comfortable.

For accessories, look for a short, layered pearl necklace to rest high on your chest. A classy and sleek cigarette holder is a characteristic part of the costume. Finally, put your hair up into a simple updo and slip on a tiara comb for the final touch. If you’re going to a day party, you could also use a pair of oversized black sunglasses for a more detailed look. A sassy little smile, and you’ve got instant classiness for Halloween!

DIY Halloween Look: Rosie the Riveter

We are all familiar with the image of Rosie the Riveter. She is a symbol of female strength, bravery, and all out fierceness. Many celebrities, from Demi Lovato, P!NK, and even Queen Bey herself, have posed as Rosie the Riveter for photo shoots and music videos.

With all things spooky just two days away, it is a sure thing that simple DIY Halloween looks are coming together pretty quickly. Rosie the Riveter is one of the easiest iconic styles to imitate with a stylish twist. Plus, this look works well for all body types and it can be done with things that you probably already own.

A denim shirt with rolled sleeves paired with either black jeans or denim shorts provide the essentials of this look. Add combat boots and red lipstick for that attention grabbing tough girl edge. Finish the look with the signature red bandana and that is it. Top it all off with a bicep flex and a fierce face and you’re ready for any costume party!

Do you have runway style dreams with an everyday girl’s budget?  Don’t be discouraged! With a little help, we can all look as chic and fresh as the latest runway looks. The example above is a look from Isabel Marant’s Fall 2015 show. When looking at price tags, this look may seem unattainable, but it’s actually a simple look with affordable pieces that most of us can find in our own closets. Though Labor Day has come and gone, it is no longer a marker for when white can be worn. White can look good in any season,but for Fall and Winter, the key is to mix it with darker and warmer colors and fabrics.  For example, you may have a cute white skirt from Spring or Summer that can beautifully paired with boots and a jacket. This Isabel Marant outfit retails for  $2600, but, if you have absolutely nothing remotely similar to the pieces above in your own closet, you can purchase the outfit inspired by her look for $406, which is less than a fourth of the original cost. Another great quality about the look is that all of these pieces can be mixed and worn again with other items in your closet, so you’re not paying paying for an outfit that you’ll only wear once. These can easily become staples in your Fall and Winter wardrobe, proving that you don’t have to break the bank to always look your best.

Be festive and dress up during Halloweek with Halloween colors. Combine black biker jeans with a white t-shirt and a plaid shirt to go around the waist. The shirt around the waist will accentuate your waistline. Pair it with black leather boots to give it the casual, yet edgy fall look. Accessorize with black aviator shades and add a bag that will blend with the outfit without going unnoticed. To get the perfect finishing look, the “witch hat” will give you the final touch for your HalloLook!

The Bohemian Date Night Makeover

           Date night can be stressful enough without the added pressure of figuring out what to wear. Why not lift a large portion off of your already heavy plate and allow Guide2Style to dress you for that special night? My friend Desiree decided to take full advantage of the wonderful advice we offer on our site.

After completing a personal profile, she searched her closet for clothes that mirrored the wonderful options that were generated specifically for her. Having a Bohemian personal style, the site recommended that she wear a stylish straight dress that included rich and dark tones of colors, such as black, pink, red, orange, green, and grey. These colors were also suggested for their wonderful ability to create symmetry throughout the body by hiding flaws in its lower section. It was also recommended that she try different patterns and prints, and as she played around in her own closet, she found that the site’s advice helped her find the perfect dress. With the help of Guide2Style, Desiree was able to enjoy her night in a vibrant outfit that made her feel beautiful and confident.

An Edgy Fall Date Night

A great way to make a lasting impression on a fall date night is to add a little edge to your look and let your personality shine through. A perfect way to go about this is with a simple pant, jacket, and top combo.

Black leather is a great way to add some instant attitude to any look, so go for a stylish, black leather jacket that isn’t too heavy and won’t cause you to overheat in the nice weather. Underneath, choose a crop top that will allow you to show a little midriff and throw in some sex appeal to spice up your date. Though there are many seasonal colors for fall, grey is one of the most popular, so a grey top would be a trendy way to stay in season.

For the pants, choose a straight legged jean. The straight legs will accentuate your silhouette and give your figure the illusion of more height. Jeans with some distressed accents will contribute to the edgy vibe and also add an element of casualness. Finish off the look with a pair of simple black heels and a red clutch to add a pop of color to your ensemble, and you will be ready to rock a fall date night!

The Fall Blazer

This Fall will bring about the triumphant return of some of our favorite pieces of fashion, and no wardrobe will be complete without the perfect blazer. Though we’ll be enjoying cooler weather, most of us will be met with the challenge of wearing more clothes than we did in the summer yet less than we would in the winter. Being chic, classic, and the perfect transition into cooler weather, blazers are the perfect staple piece for the Fall.

Though they are popularly worn all year for work and special occasions, the style, prints, textures and patterns of Fall blazers add to an outfit in a whole new and exciting way. They offer options such as color blocking, pattern mixing, and a variety of lengths and fits. Amongst their many beneficial qualities, blazers are also one of the most versatile pieces in a fashionista’s closet. They can add a dressier appearance to anything from slacks to jeans, and they pair beautifully with all Fall essentials.

While planning your fall ensembles, continue to include your cute boots, jeans, hats, and scarves, but don’t forget to top it all off with a blazer that is sure to grab everyone’s attention.
