Outshine Yourself

By | Blog

Nothing defines happiness more than sequins and the holiday season. And the two of them together? Ah, pure bliss.

As if it’s not tough enough already to decide what to wear when you wake up in the morning every day, deciding what to wear to a holiday party has the ability to make you want to pull your hair out. My hair is already thin enough so clearly I needed to find a way to keep my hair and save the aggravation. So, whether it’s a work party, house party, dinner, brunch, pictures with Santa or New Years, sequins are your go-to this holiday season.

Classic Sequin Dress

No need to explain how flawless you’d look covered in sequins.

Little Embellishment

If you want just a little taste of sequins, it’s easy to be very subtle. Don’t want sequins as a whole garment? Choose pieces with just little areas of sequin embellishment. It can be a solid black romper with just the cuffs embellished (we have one at DFTI that is amazing!!) or any dress or shirt with a little sparkle on the shoulder. Another easy way is to add them in with your accessories. Throw on a simple little black dress and make it holiday glam by adding a sparkly statement necklace, a sequin handbag, or even just sparkly nail polish (preferably gold for a more glamorous look).

No matter the holiday occasion, sequins are always appropriate and are so versatile to suite any party. Rihanna is proof no one will top your sequin look.

Happy Holidays!

That ’70s Show[stopper]

By | Blog

If you’re anything like me, you’ve always wanted to be Jackie Burkhart from That ’70s Show. Her signature style was always so put together from head to toe, she was the “It” girl of her town and honestly, who wouldn’t want to be Mila Kunis? Clearly, back in the 2000’s, 70’s fashion was not that trendy, so we couldn’t appreciate Jackie’s clothing as much, but now is your time to be the updated version of Jackie (insert heart eyes emoji). For this winter, stay warm with 70’s inspired clothing.

Earth Tones and Prints

The easiest way to mimic Jackie’s 70’s style is through warm earth tone colored clothing and accessories. Earth tones include shades of tan, brown, gray, green, red and blue (any color found in nature) and are definitely in for this season. Since I am getting paler by the second, usually nude tones are not my go-to in the winter but with a little contouring, it can be pulled off. If nude and your skin tone just don’t mix, camel is a great alternative and is equally as great. Also, try adding earth tone colored prints to your wardrobe. These colored patterns are fun but neutral enough to be sophisticated.

Turtlenecks

Last time I wore a turtleneck was my kindergarten school picture (trendsetter from the beginning, duh), but now I’ll be adding turtlenecks to my everyday wardrobe. Sometimes turtleneck sweaters get a little too hot, but if you really like the turtleneck trend, try a tank top with this neckline and add a jacket or blazer over to complete your winter look. Whether it’s a turtleneck shirt, sweater, dress or tank, this style is totally 70’s inspired. My favorite styling of this is a cropped turtleneck sweater paired with leather skinnies- an easy day to night outfit.

Coats

Tis’ the season of winter coats! This season we can look at Jackie’s amazing coat collection for inspiration, especially her faux fur bomber jacket. Fur jackets and vests are totally trending and are easy to wear with anything. Did I mention how chic you look while wearing fur too?
