Fall. Oversized sweaters, cozy scarves, beanies galore, these are easily the best part about the fall…unless you live in SoCal, of course. What is a girl to do when her heart yearns for knits and layers but sizzling summer temperatures still linger? Well, don’t worry, ladies, I’m here to give you a few tips and tricks to turn your outfits “fall chic” while still enduring the summer heat.
My number one tip when trying to make an outfit look more fall-inspired is to really play with color. When I think of fall I think of burgundy, olive, rust, teal and plum, so try and and incorporate some of these colors into your outfits. My jewel-toned teal dress and multi-colored floral kimono are extremely breathable and they transition easily into autumn.
My next tip is to experiment with different textures and lighter layers. I have lace, army, stripes, leather, and knits all in one look which helps to create a more laid-back fall time feel.
So happy awkward transition from summer-to-fall! May the weather gods be ever in your favor…but if not, you can hopefully use these tips.
The jogger trend is at its full height right now, so I thought I’d show you how to add a little “Bella Twist” to your everyday jogger look.
This look is perfect for hanging out with friends or going on a casual date. The comfort in the pant-and-shoe combo makes it easy to wear all day pain-free, while the leather jacket and necklace keep it looking stylish not sloppy.
With the return of school and fall creeping around the corner, plaid shirts are once again making a comeback. I think we can all agree that plaid shirts are a must-have for everyday wear because they can be worn countless ways with almost every style. So today I am showing you guys how to style one plaid shirt three different ways.
1. The first way I styled my plaid shirt is the good ol’ tie around the waist. This is definitely the easiest way to incorporate plaid into your look, and it adds a laid-back vibe to your outfit.
2. The second way is a bit more on the preppy side. I started by throwing a simple grey sweater over my plaid shirt. I dressed up the outfit with a pavé statement necklace and some lace-up booties.
3. The third, and final, way I styled my plaid button up is by far my fave, and that’s to just layer, layer, LAYER. I paired my shirt with a breezy olive dress and a denim vest for a girly twist on a somewhat rustic look.
So the next time you’re in a fashion rut and just can’t find something to wear, throw on a plaid shirt and put your own unique twist on the classic clothing piece.
It’s one of the best times during your high school experience, and what we look forward to at the beginning of every school year: Homecoming. Now that you ladies have gone through hundreds of dresses and maybe even hundreds of dollars to ensure that your night is perfect, it’s time to think about what your date will wear. Some may argue that it’s more difficult for ladies to get ready for formal events, but us gentlemen don’t fall too far behind. It’s tough for us, too.
Let’s break down a homecoming look that anyone’s date will look like a king in:
Whether your date is a traditionalist or a guy who thinks outside the box, this look is fantastic. I paired a classic slim-fit black blazer with comfortable Topman Skinny Fit Trousers, then added a pop of color with a vibrant purple dress shirt. For guys who like to keep things more low-key, a white dress shirt would look just as sharp.
To finish off, I opted for a silver watch and a Ted Baker bow tie. A colorful bow tie definitely separates you from everyone else in the room and really solidifies your individuality.
For a stylish twist on the classic tuxedo, leather sleeves and lapels take things to the next level. I chose a cream-colored shirt and my favorite python dress shoes to complete the look.
You don’t always have to conform to society or play by the rules: The best part about fashion is there aren’t any rules!
Shopping for the perfect homecoming look for can be quite stressful. I mean do you go for a more glam look? Or what about an edgy urban feel? But wait, there is also something to love about simple elegance… The possibilities are endless! Well, have no fear because I’ve put together three different looks that will hopefully help with all that dress stress.
1. White Hot
This stunning white dress is the epitome of elegance. Paired with a crystal clutch, some simple diamond studs, and classic nude pumps you’ll be radiating chic sophistication all night long.
3. Feeling Blue
Now here’s a look for all you glam girls out there. This vibrant blue dress with it’s amazing jeweled corset are perfectly complimeted by the gunmetal accessories. Plus if you and your friends happen to be seperated sometime throughout the night, you can just tell them to look for the most sparkling thing in the room!
Even though what you wear to homecoming may seem like the most important thing ever, it’s really all about the memories you make. So don’t forget to laugh a lot, dance endlessly and enjoy every second of the the night.
Hey y’all! Fall is still plenty hot in SoCal, and to beat the heat there is nothing better than a cool dress. Today I styled one of my favorite dresses three different ways:
1. Easy Does It
Here is the most effortless look. Just the dress, some leather boots, a black crossbody bag and few accessories. I absolutely love this dress. The bright, pool-blue color and the daisy cutouts are perfect for the brilliant days of late summer.
2. The Cold Shoulder
I switched up the look with an airy white cold-shoulder top. I love the delicacy and simplicity of this top. At a petite height of 4’11″, this is one of those “too short as a dress but too long as a top” kinda situations. So wearing it over this dress was the perfect solution!
3. Get Cozy
Ok, so you know that weird transition period between summer and fall? (Like right now?) It’s still hot, but the leaves are getting darker and now you can wear those deep fall colors that you’ve been longing for. My third look is for that “Indian summer” time. Here I wore the same dress, but now with a cozy maroon sweater. If you’re still chilly (which is highly unlikely here in the valley), you can add a warm scarf.
Cara Delevingne has become one of my absolute favorite faces in fashion: she’s talented, hilarious and uniquely herself. And maybe a little crazy, so I feel like we can relate. It’s no wonder, then, that my style icon is the new face of Topshop! I am in love with the most recent Topshop campaign, so polished and quintessentially British.
Get inspired by some of my favorite shots of Cara as Topshop’s muse.
A blazer, ripped skinny jeans and pointed black boots make a perfect rock ‘n’ roll outfit. Also I think I am going to go paint my walls yellow.
