2 Key Accessories To Making A Simple Outfit Complete

When wearing a simple and neutral look, it is important to add just a tad bit of color into your outfit to bring it to life.  In today's outfit post, I want to show you my favorite style tip for tying together simple, yet bohemian-chic together.  It doesn't get any easier than this!  

Style Tips

1.  An old vintage belt work well with this look because vintage pieces usually have fun colors and some unique flair to them.  My belt style is a thin, multi-colored rope and I tied it around my waist to give my waist some shape.  The great thing about a skinny rope belt is that they can be worn over so many jackets and also long maxi dresses for Summer.  :)  For this look, you can throw on any cape, poncho or longer shrug jacket and easily throw on an old vintage belt to add that special touch.  

2.  A necklace that has similar colors as in your belt always works well together too.  My necklace is kind of long, but a shorter one that doesn't cover your belt will look a bit nicer.  

3.  I love ankle boots for Fall and I chose brown suede ones to tie the look together as a whole.  

Hope you have a great week!


Gucci Style

Today's post is a Runway/My Version of a jacket that rather reminds me of the 80's.  I got my jacket about 8 years ago, so when I saw Gucci's Spring '15 Collection and noticed it was rather similar, I was thrilled because I never wear my jacket and knew it would give me a swift kick to start wearing it more. 
Read below for tips on pulling this look off too!  

Gucci Version / My Version

Style Tips

1.  I don't know why, but I really do like florals paired with military style, so I threw on a floral scarf that has the same shade of green as my jacket for a bit of feminine touch.  Try it out too if you want to soften up the tough side military style brings.

2.  I chose pump shoes because I wasn't feeling the snakeskin boots in the Gucci look and don't have snakeskin shoes anyways.  Black shoes always works great with military, and remember inspiration is inspiration, and it's way more fun to think of ways to put together a look in your own way.  The fun in coming up with outfit ideas is to put your take on it and own the look.  ;)

Button Downs All The Way Up

Classic Button Down shirts can look rather chic when buttoned all the way up and worn under sweaters and collarless coats and jackets.  Here is a Style Icon Version and My Version kind of post I like to do when I just don't have much time to blog.  

Mira's Version / My Version

Style Tips 

1.  Button downs are so chic when buttoned all the way up the neck, unless of course they are too uncomfortable when buttoned all the way up.  An easy and chic way to style it like this, is to throw a collarless jacket or coat over it, or a v- neckline sweater or low scoop neck sweater for Fall and Winter.  

2.  A cape style coat also works great with the button down all the way up too worn with some over the knee or below the knee boots.

I hope everyone is doing well and what is new with you?  Not much here other than still studying fashion design, but had to take a big break because I was burnt out.  So, I didn't sew or do any draping or pattern making in the past few weeks.  I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things soon!  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!  


Red Pants For Fall/Winter 2015

Red is hot for Fall/Winter 2015 and I wanted to design a pair of trousers that would be perfect for this Season and would be on trend.  After getting rid of a pair of red pants from Express years ago and regretting the decision to do so, I am so happy that I now have a pair that fit me better and are also fully lined and weather appropriate for Fall.  One of my favorite Pre-Fall looks featuring red pants can be found HERE for some more inspiration. 

 Read below for style tips for this look!

Pants:  Designed by me
Vest:  Forever 21
Tee:  JCPenney
Shoes:  Report Signature

Style Tips

1.  Red looks so good with neutral colors.  Pair up your red bottoms or red top with bone, tans, taupes, or browns for an effortless look while allowing a strong focus on the statement red.

2.  Flat loafer style shoes are in style again, and the length of these pants make it easy to throw on without tripping on your pants all day long.  Heels also work great with this pant also and dress it up for work or a night out.  

3.  Faux fur is always so comfortable and easy to work with, so throw on a vest over your favorite trousers and a comfy fitted tee this Fall and you will feel comfortable and look so chic!  

Hope these tips help you feel the red-love this Season!  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by today!
