There have been a lot of trends in 2018. Some of which were amazing and others not so much. That is why I’m pleased to welcome back an oldie but goodie, the leopard print!  Was it ever really gone though? Leopard print is a classic look that has been around for decades. But I’m excited to say this print is currently having a major moment to round out the year.

 This trend can be worn at any age (yes, I do mean any) which makes it such a quintessential look for your wardrobe. To keep it  fresh, search for streamlined pieces and just add one pop of feline fun to your outfit. More than that and it will look like you’re making a mockery of this majestic pattern. Which means you do not need to run out and buy a ton of new stuff, whew!

Be on the prowl for this pattern in accessories at first. A leopard purse or shoes are fun add-ons and will look great with any outfit you already own.  A leopard scarf over a stellar jacket or sweater will turn heads and keep you warm. A little accoutrement will help you tip toe into this trend.

Leopard print should be seen as a neutral which sparks a plethora of fun ideas. Wearing this style with a bright pop of color will highlight it even more so. Don’t feel the need to shy away in other areas of your outfit whilst wearing a bold print.

 

If you love it after that, go ahead and dive in with a coat. My personal  favorite way to rock this ferocious print. A faux fur or trench style is the perfect completer piece for any outfit. I adore adding a leopard jacket to add instant glam when wearing a basic t-shirt and jeans. It takes any outfit from day-to-night in two seconds flat.

 

What are your thoughts on leopard? Right up your alley or too much? I recommend trying this print to pump up any outfit, you may find that you love it!

The holidays are upon us and I’m so freakin’ excited.

Let’s face it, you are either throwing a holiday party or going to one. I fall under the both category and needed to put some looks together ASAP.

There are different levels of parties so you most likely can get away with wearing something you already own. Take a deep breath. You can do this and have a killer ensemble for each event on your list.

Red is a classic look, don’t let anybody tell you it is cliché. You will not go wrong with a red dress. This color screams confidence which is what we all want, right? A fishtail hem or an interesting sleeve adds even more interest to the piece.

If that it too bold, a black dress with some killer red heels will do the trick. A red lip will go with ANYTHING you decide to wear as well. Look for a blue toned, matte red lipstick to make your smile sparkle and last all night.

If you are wanting to buy something new, start with finding the right fabric. Look for interesting textures. Sequin, fur, velvet or lace. All of these fabrications feel luxurious and epitomize the season.  Keep the people staring long after you walk in the room. Then seek out your color scheme. Gold, silver, green, black or red. All wise choices. Make it sparkly, go over the top. Wear something you normally wouldn’t. This is the holidays after all!

Depending on the party, you could skip a dress altogether. Dark wash skinny jeans with a festive top and heels will suffice for a casual get together. Look put together but still comfortable enough to eat all those gingerbread cookies.

My favorite look thus far has been high-waisted, wide leg trousers with several tops. You can rock a crop or tuck in a slim fitting blouse. A fun twist on a classic look. The best part is that pants have everybody’s favorite feature: POCKETS!!! This is by far the most chic option for winter.  Heading to an office party? Whip off your blazer and you’re good to go! This outfit will gain you style points and dare I even say, a promotion?

Do not let all the red and gold you see around steer you away from softer colors. White and pale blue are also stunning options for winter. You will look like you just walked out of a winter wonderland, who wouldn’t want that?!

To put it all together a (faux) fur coat will add glam to any ensemble and keep you warm! Black is classic choice but keep your eye out for dark jewel tones as well. A forest green jacket would be stunning. Who knew looking HOT in the cold could be so easy?!

Fall weather has been inspiring my wardrobe lately. Thought I would show you some recent purchases of mine.

Let’s start our week off with a little outfit inspiration, shall we?

Faux suede has been huge for me. The soft texture is exactly what I want to wear in this beautiful but gloomy weather. This dark tan shade was an easy choice. It will go with the other warm toned pieces I’ve been coveting. Nude shoes are a must when wearing this color.

The Blank NYC jacket is a splurge but will last for years. A moto style will always be a classic look. A good jacket instantly pulls together any outfit.

Can’t get enough of rust pieces this time of year. The perfect sweater to match my pumpkin spice lattes. I have a couple other items in this color family and adore them all. Warm toned items just scream cozy to me.

The oversized and slouchy shape keeps up the comforting demeanor. Tied in a knot or tucked into jeans, a big sweater will feel like a warm hug.

Ever heard of a “happy color?” A shade that brings you pure joy every time you wear it? Yellow is MY happy color. It is fun, bright, full of personality and goes with more than you may think.

 Looks like yellow is the new trendy color in town, move over millennial pink! Add one piece of this style anywhere in an outfit and I promise it will instantly become your new favorite.

With so many different shade variations out there, you are guaranteed to find the one that flatters you best. I love a BRIGHT pop or a muted mustard. An uber pale tone would be a sophisticated option as well.

Yellow works well with gold accessories and lots of denim. Yes, you can also wear this trend with black and not fear resembling a bumblebee. Even if you do, you will be the chicest bee you ever did see!

If a full on yellow get-up isn’t your thing, you can still incorporate sunshine hues in small doses. Pop this color into your makeup or accessories. Easiest way to knock a trend out of the park is to not hit somebody over the head with it.

Contrary to the rhyme, this color is anything but mellow. Not that you would want to be! Fashion is about taking risks and this trend fully embraces that. Sport yellow separates or a one piece. No matter how you chose to rock it, this color will let you stand out.

Fall is just around the corner, whether we like it or not. While excited, I will miss my summer outfits dearly. Either way this is the perfect time to pick up or pull out quintessential fall staples.

Prints are always a fun fashion decision. Plaid is an obvious choice for the fall. While there is nothing wrong with it, steer in a different direction and look for gingham or window pane print, both huge trends this year.

Earthy tones are the epitome of fall. Military greens and rust just waiting to be plucked from your closet. This doesn’t mean bright colors are out just yet however. Varying shades of yellow and orange-y reds which we saw TAKE OVER this summer are forging head first into the changing season.

Leaves shifting colors does not mean you need to let go of your skirt affinity until next year. Look for heavier fabrics and straight cuts. Suede, leather and denim skirts will mend the gap until winter arrives. Overall dresses are a wise choice as well. Perfectly paired with a chunky sweater to keep you warm.

For shoes, isn’t it obvious? Boots! Of course, but what kind of boots? Booties and over the knee styles still run the game. They go with everything and you most likely already own a pair of each from last year, thank goodness!

Denim, denim, denim! Jean pieces are synonymous with autumn. Wear a full denim outfit (see previous “Denim on Denim” post) or incorporate just one piece into a look and you are set for the season. Over-sized denim jacket with a suede skirt? Check! Strive to find jeans with interesting hemlines. Raw edge? Double check! Distressed or starched, any denim at all will do just fine.  This dressing for autumn thing is easy AND comfortable.
