The Printed Blouses You Definitely Need

Because yes, no one should ever go blouse-less! There’s something so charming about a blouse that we can’t quite put our fingers on…could it be its versatility or could it be the fact that it can literally take you from day to night in class and style? In both cases, the result is fabulous and it all comes down to the way you style it.

Granted, the style world evolves on a daily basis, but a blouse is a classic staple that can equally look good with tailored trousers or a flirty mini-skirt. Last year, we noticed a fresh update on the shirt, as designers created one too many pieces that defied the usual norms – think off-the-shoulder blouses and deconstructed ones. But recently, there was a blatant revival of the eighties and blouses were part of the “blast from the past” trend. That said, big Fashion Houses such as Gucci revisited the age old pussy-bow blouses in more modernistic ways and it was – and still is for that matter – all the rage.

And so, we’ve scoured the best blouses to suit your 9-to-5 style alongside your after-work outfits. Scroll below for more!

10 Jeans to Covet Now

It doesn’t get any more classic than this…jeans. They’re the kind of pants you literally can pull off anywhere, anytime – with the right styling, of course. But a pair of jeans is also a double-edged sword that can potentially harm you if you don’t pay attention to the variety of style, fits, finishes and cuts.

So basically, when you shop for a pair of jeans, there are a lot of things you should consider first. For instance, the fit. Your jeans shouldn’t be too tight and not too large – unless you’ve chosen boyfriend jeans. They should hug your figure all-too perfectly and enhance your curves in the best of ways. Also, since there are a lot of styles and cuts to choose from – from skinny jeans to wide-legged ones, boot-cut, cropped and flared, boyfriend and mom jeans, amongst others – you should really consider what would be the most flattering one for you.

At the end of the day, it’s only a matter of knowing what suits you best and what is fit for the occasion at hand. The best thing about jeans is that you can pair them with pretty much anything, from sneakers, to flats, pumps or even heeled sandals.

Now that we have your attention, scroll below to pick your favorite jeans!

One-Tone Dressing 101

Dressing all in one color might sound a bit boring at first glance, but if you really look into it, you’ll come to realize that it’s all the rage right now. Look at it this way, the less variations of colors you use, the more sophisticated and chic you look. Of course, it’s not written in stone and the end result is not 100% successful if not applied correctly, but it wouldn’t hurt to give it a try now, would it?

One guaranteed way to pull one-tone dressing is to match your outfit with the same color thigh-high boots. Not only will it add length to your silhouette, it will also create a uniformed line like no other. Another easy wat to dress head-to-toe in one color is to do it with tailored suits – from pantsuits to skirt-suits. The trick here is not to stick to classic colors; instead, go for bolder ones à la Blake Lively. You can even experiment with patterns and textures to pick it up a notch. For instance, pick a striped pattern and wear it from head to toe.

If you want to perfect the one-tone dressing movement, just get inspired by these runway moments below.

Style Your Coat With These Street Style Inspirations

Nothing beats a few street style inspirations to get you all riled up over the perks of winter. And by perks, we mean having to wear opulent and dreamy coats to keep yourself warm.

With the streets packed to the gills with people flaunting their winter style, one can’t help but notice all the different variations of coats that are eyegrabbing. The coats that have been taking center stage this season are quite the statement-makers – to say the least – and we’ve acknowledged the presence of fur sensations, animal-printed styles and over-sized trench coats. The art of layering obviously plays a huge role in the styling process, as street style mavens have been the numero uno culprits and have mastered it ever-so elegantly. While some endorsers have brought some refined drama to their looks, others have made the coat-deal a bit more pared-down a lot more relaxed. But most importantly, this season’s coats have taken a more colorful approach, revealing a series of statement patterns, shiny fabrics – hello vinyl – and eye-grabbing hues.

To help you out, we’ve scoured the best street style inspirations just below!
