Leopard Is A Neutral

Happy Friday!

If you don’t know, then now you know! Leopard is a neutral – at least in my eyes. If you think about it, the colours in a leopard print are just black and variations of camel, but paired together they seem more threatening right! Breaking down the colours in a print this way makes it much easier to work with. For today’s look I used the black in the leopard print as my starting point. I wanted the skirt to be the centre of attention so my other pieces were black to let that happen. Always keeping my accessories to a minimum, I added just a statment belt for a hint of glam. Plated belts like these are not only a great way to cinch in your waist, but also a great way tie your whole look together for a clean and chic feel. I finished the look with my favourite pointed toe booties and a coat over the shoulders. The shades were actually a last minute touch because I tend to close my eyes alot in photos. This helped to get better shots quicker. This is a look I would wear over the holiday to dinner or a night out with the girls.

Black and White Makes Everything Right!

Happy Friday!
If I had to choose a pairing to wear for the rest of my life, it definitely would be black and white. This also includes home decor, but that’s another blog story. Black and white just makes everything look so chic and so right. It’s easy, simple, sophisticated and still effective. It can look a bit serious at times, but I like to think of it as a more mature way of styling and decorating. Pretty much everytime I come across an item I always check to see if they have it in black or white or both. If they do, you bet I’m buying it in both colours. My must-have items to buy in both black and white are:

1. Tops: V-neck t-shirts; turtlenecks, silk blouses; crewneck long sleeve tops; tank tops, blazers, sweaters.

2. Bottoms: Skinny jeans, mini skirts; jeans shorts.

3. Shoes: Sneakers; pumps, sandal heels; sandal flats.

Style Tip-If you have no clue on how to define your own personal style, I suggest to start out choosing black and white pieces. Then slowly incorporate some colour if colour is your jam. I started out styling this look as all black, but instead of colour I used this black and white brick print cardigan from Forever 21 as my ‘pop of colour’. For me, wearing a black and white print or pattern can be used to elevate an all black look. I think of it as my statement piece like I would a necklace or watch. My turtleneck and jeans (DIY knee rips) are from Sirens Fashion. My ankle boots are from Topshop and I added the gold chain in front to resemble the Givenchy ankle boots. I topped off my look with my go-to wide brim hat from Forever 21.

Hey guys, summer is finally here! Woo hoo! Lately my style is becoming a bit more clean, refined and polished. I’m striving to create a uniform for myself by having key pieces that I wear frequently which are the foundation of my wardrobe. While at the same time mixing in fun and dramatic pieces too. At the end of the day it’s always important to remain true to yourself. I’ve definitely come a long way in figuring out my style and I’ve come to the conclusion that my style will be a mix between classy, sexy and loosely fitted. Some days I want to wear looser fits, but then other days I do want to wear something that hugs me in the right places. It’s all about the mood and vibe for me, as well as the occasion, that will determine my look for the day. Only few are lucky enough to get their style right early on, but once you do you feel like a brand new person. With that said, get style inspired and shop this look below.

I’m a sucker for mini dresses and skirts. With my height they’re a great way to make your legs look longer. For a sexy feminine look I would pair mines with some sandal heels to show off the legs. In this look I decided to go with the over-the-knee boots to give the dress a more stylish edge. This shirt dress actually doubles as both a top and a dress, so very versatile. There’s just something about over-the-knee boots paired with wide brim hats that just works. Topping it off with the hat was a no-brainer. Even though this look is a ‘fashion’ look, it is actually sexy too. Showing just the right amount of skin between my knee and thigh leaves a lot to the imagination. Shop the look below!
