A Vintage Inspired Dress Styled Three Ways

Today’s video is in collaboration with Fevrie.com. I recently discovered this online retailer and was intrigued by their Parisian inspiration and great prices. They sent me this adorable mod dress and today I am showing how you can style it multiple ways.

High School Hats

My style has definitely changed since high school. Let’s just say in those years I was more into gigantic Jordan-esque sneakers and dying my hair blue. That’s not to say I don’t have a few things from those days that still make it into my weekly wardrobe rotation. Enter, the slouchy beanie.

I’ve had this hat since freshman year of high school. It’s boho, insanely comfortable, and I feel like I would blend in in the hippest of neighborhoods. Plus, my husband really digs it.

There have been many a spring clean when I’ve considered donating it. But then I throw it on my head and it instantly pulls some of my favorite pieces together. Like this sateen finished pair of American Eagle jeggings and this massive sweater. They’d be nothing without a little dash of skater girl sass.

Forever 21 Booties 3 Ways

Today’s post is in collaboration with Kristina from Style By Wilde. We decided to style the same pair of simple black booties with fringe details from Forever 21. I styled them three ways, and Kristina styled them three ways. I was really surprised by how substantial these boots felt — they were under $40!

If you love the boots, you can buy them here.

What To Add To Your Wardrobe For 2015

Spring is around the corner, which means that new fashion possibilities are on the horizon for our wardrobes. This coming season looks to be chock-full of amazing pieces to be excited about. But if you were asked to choose ONE piece to add to your wardrobe in 2015, what would you pick? We have a few suggestions of our own… And because we believe that everyone is beautiful in every stage of life, we’ve picked our must-have, favorite pieces by age group. Here are the pieces we think should be added to every fashionista’s wardrobe in 2015.

If you’re in your 20’s, add a Duster Jacket to your wardrobe.

These long jackets were a trend piece from last year that carried over to 2015… and thank goodness they did! Not only are they super stylish, they’re comfortable and versatile. We think that the best duster jackets are in lighter or neutral tones like white, beige, or peach. Be sure to pick the right length of jacket for your height (or buy one and have it altered as needed). Get one this spring and you’ll be able to wear it comfortably in a multitude of ways throughout the year (even on those cool summer nights)!

If you’re in your 30’s, add a Tea Length Skirt to your wardrobe.

 

Whether you’re looking for work attire, attending a wedding, or just need something to wear to brunch with your girlfriends, the midi (also known as tea length) skirt is the piece to get for 2015. Midi skirts create an A-line silhouette by nipping in at the smallest part of the waist and flowing outward over the knee, exposing only calves and ankles. This is a flattering shape for many body types! Wear a midi skirt with a button shirt, a sweater, or (if you’re daring), a cropped blouse. Just remember to keep the shoe simple and feminine.

If you’re in your 40’s, add a Maxi Dress to your wardrobe.

Although they’ve been circulating the fashion world for several years now, this year’s maxi dresses are ultra sophisticated and flowy. We love the intricate details, beautiful patterns and bold colors that make them perfect for casual daytime wear AND evening occasions. Make sure to choose a maxi that’s flattering to your shoulders, neck, and arms, and keep shoes minimal and neutral in color.

If you’re in your 50’s, add a Trench Coat to your wardrobe.

The most classic way to make an outfit stylish? A trench coat, of course! If a trench isn’t in your wardrobe yet, make 2015 the year to invest in a good one.

A trench coat:

  • Is wearable in nearly every season,

  • Makes almost any outfit instantly chic,

  • And looks beautiful on all types of body shapes.

Keep it classic with Burberry or find one with sassy details like what Kate Spade offers. Get one in a bold hue, or keep it neutral. Either way, make sure a trench finds its way into your wardrobe for 2015!

Have fun shopping and be sure to keep your eyes peeled for these pieces while you shop this spring!
