Are you still contemplating Thanksgiving Day outfit ideas? Here are two ideas you can toss around. Contrary to what most people think, I don’t think it’s a good idea to wear super loose and comfortable clothes on holidays. This just encourages the likelihood of you overeating and feeling bad about yourself later. Another tip is never go to a party hungry. Always eat a light snack before heading over so you won’t be the guest hogging the appetizer table. I feel you should be relatively comfortable, and of course, adorable. If you’re attending a more formal sit down dinner, I recommend an A-line or skater dress. This silhouette is feminine without being too restrictive. This River Island dress has it’s own pearl necklace embellishment which I paired with an edgier silver moto jacket so it wouldn’t be so girly. Adding opaque tights and classic patent Mary Janes helps ground the look (and keeps your legs warm for those in colder climates). For those attending a more casual gathering, try a nice pair of jeans with some stretch for comfort. I love this mixed texture moto knit jacket. The fur collar adds a touch of sophistication. You can’t go wrong with these sick pair of Marc Jacobs over-the-knee boots! I hope these ideas help you a little. Honestly, I’ll be at home with the hubby for Turkey Day and will be lounging in my fluffy leopard print robe all day
It looks like tartan is here to stay. The safe way to incorporate this look into your wardrobe would be to add a tartan blazer or shirt but why not be a little daring and try some plaid pants? I stumbled upon these adorable pair from Mango and was inspired to pair some looks with them. I will admit that wearing plaid pants can be a little tricky so I have created three different ways to rock this look. The first look is for someone with a more edgy personality. The addition of a cool leather moto jacket and Jeffrey Campbell booties to an otherwise preppy look gives it a London rocker, school-girl look. If your looking for a more work appropriate look try pairing the pants with a feminine silk blouse, a structured blazer, and pearls. If you’re a little self-concious about your rear, you can wear a long cardigan with a scarf and tall boots to provide a cozy and casual look.
Which look do you like the best? I would love to see what outfits you come up with so feel free to share!
Houndstooth is one of those classic prints that never goes out of style. Once worn by aristocrats meandering the lush greenery of the U.K. duck hunting for sport is now worn by all. I used to not be a huge fan of this pattern because it seemed a little granny to me, but recently I have revisited this classic and I view it in a whole new light. It helps that designer have branched out from just coats and capes to flirty shorts and body con dresses giving this traditional look new life. I’m also loving the use of bright colors in leiu of the traditional black and white. Have you embraced this classic pattern with any key pieces in your wardrobe? Please feel free to share your favorite houndstooth looks.
Sweatshirts have received a serious update! No longer will an image of a sweaty Sylvester Stallone climbing the steps in Rocky come to mind when thinking of wearing a sweatshirt. Designers from Old Navy to Lanvin have given these common threads new life. Embellished sweatshirts are a rising trend with everything from sequins and crystals to fur and leather. They are available in every budget. You can, of course pair them with skinny jeans and some high top wedge sneakers, or create a quirky look with a printed skater skirt and ankle boots. Either look would be fun. So, go on and get embellished!
Rihanna is just that chick that every woman wants to be and every man wants to you-know-what. We could all stand to read a page from her book of style. She’s a trendsetter and a total fashion risk taker, but it somehow all works on her. I admire how she has the ability to look so cool and appear like she didn’t even try. I have been flirting with the idea of wearing a fitted crop top and Rihanna styles it perfectly below. She kept it simple in all black with skinny jeans and topped it with an oversized boyfriend blazer. I think the key to wearing this look is balance. Find a bottom with a higher waist so you won’t be revealing too much skin. Low-rise jeans with a cropped shirt can come off a little…..well…you know. I’ve re-created this look with every item under $100!
The necklace is from River Island and is very reasonably priced. You can see her debut Rihanna for River Island collection fashion show on one of my previous posts. I’m going to try to get my nerves up and rock a fitted crop top. I’ll be putting in many hours at the Bar Method and staying away from carbs. Do you dare to bare your midriff??
