So many of today’s notable styles have their roots in celebrity closets. This kind of fashion star power can make or break a fledgling trend. These top celeb trends are still making waves today. Do you have of these fashion do’s in your closet?
When it comes to office fashion, it can be tough to decide what’s appropriate. Individuals who work in creative fields may have more leeway, while lawyers and businesspeople may need to stick to conservative attire. It’s impossible to overstate the importance of the proper clothes on making a good impression and advancing your career.
In an interview with Forbes, fashion editor and corporate style consultant Jacqui Stafford said, “At all times, whether you’re the secretary or CEO, people will judge you in nanoseconds by what you’re wearing. I’ve seen smart, talented people passed over for promotions simply because they didn’t dress correctly.” Know the accepted guidelines for your office to turn heads for the fabulous work you do, not the questionable outfit you wore.

Give those tall boots a rest; mid calf boots are taking over this season. From the name you can tell that these types of boots run a little shorter than knee-high boots but are taller than ankle boots. Unlike the contour-hugging tall boots, these are also usually made wider at the top to provide the space needed in order to tuck in leggings, jeans, or tights.
Where to Wear Them
Mid-calf womens boots come in a number of colors, materials, and styles. These are your new basic all-purpose boots, perfect for occasions such as: [Read more…]
While men’s fashion may not change as dramatically or as quickly as women’s fashion, there are definitely changing tides that need to be observed. In the course of updating your fashion, a popular approach worth considering is finding accessories and other smaller updates to equip a classic style with modern fashion trends. Men have more freedom than ever before when it comes to accessorizing, meaning there is plenty of creativity that can go into this process.
And with so many options available, men can pick and choose their additions to cater to their personal style and fashion preferences. In 2013, practicality will be embraced. Here’s a quick rundown of the top accessories for men this year.
Purses and handbags are no longer just for women. While designers aren’t comfortable enough to market these items as “man-purses,” that’s more or less what they are — designer bags that men can use to store various items. These bags more closely resemble a backpack and are typically slung over the shoulder, but they offer beautiful designs and colors that will look fashionable whether at work or play.
The big trend in 2013 is that dress shoes are taking a backseat to alternative forms of footwear, in particular the boot. Matching boots with suits and other semi-formal attire — as well as casual clothing. Of course, that doesn’t mean dressy mens shoes are going extinct — you’ll still want to have some dress options available in your wardrobe. Your best bet is shoes in an Oxford style. Make sure they’re built for comfort and support, offering a reinforced heel and good arch support to keep your feet in good shape. [Read more…]
Rise and shine, lazy daisies, your dreams have finally come true: pajamas are not only acceptable to wear outside of the house, they’re actually one of the hottest trends of the season. Although this trend definitely gives you the freedom to be a little lazier, you still want to make sure you look good. So, trade out those skin-tight skinny jeans for comfy PJ pants and exchange those devilish high heels for some ultra-soft slippers to get your wardrobe ready for the warm and carefree spring.
1. Find the Right PJs
The “right” PJs will depend mostly on the look you’re going for. Although your five-year-old plaid pajama pants might be the comfiest pair you own, remember that you will be going out in public wearing whatever outfit you choose. For the perfect balance of comfy and cute, choose sophisticated, tailored pajamas for a look that flatters your frame with no Spanx necessary. Silk is always a great material option to give your outfit a more opulent, structured feeling that remains smooth to the touch. To stray a bit from the sleepwear look, while still embodying this trend, look for harem-style cuts for a vogue fashion statement.
2. Dress it Up
Since most of us don’t typically wear jewelry to bed, accessories can make your outfit look much more styled as opposed to sloppy. If you’re not yet comfortable fully exposing your sleepwear style, you can ease your way into your comfort zone by throwing on a jean jacket, blazer, trench coat or vest to add more stiffness to a softer look. Heels are another excellent way to add height and shave off a few pounds, since pajamas aren’t typically the most slimming style trend. If you want to further emphasize your figure, add a waist belt to trim your middle and show off your femininity with colorful dangly earrings and sparkly statement necklaces.
3. Wear Separates
Most celebrities and fashion icons have gone all out with two-piece pajamas, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you have to. If you’re more comfortable rocking just pajama pants or just a pajama top, stick with this route first and only change your style when you feel comfortable. Your favorite sweatpants can look runway-ready by simply adding edgy studded shoes and a leather jacket to the mix, while rocking an elegant updo and a bold red lip. You can also make sleepwear sexier by tying the ends of a silk button-up pajama shirt and pairing it with curve-enhancing high-waisted pants for a stylish look.
With the OK from fashion leaders like Kourtney Kardashian and Sofia Coppola, it’s safe to say that wearing pajamas outside of the house is no longer a fashion faux pas. Despite how easy this trend might seem, it’s not actually a “roll out of bed” look. However, it’s probably a lot more comfortable and casual than what you’re used to. Make sure to compensate for this comfort by styling your outfit according to your unique fashion sense.
