HOW TO LOOK LUXE FOR LESS


We've all known that person who can style bargain-bin fashion finds and make them look like luxe fashion splurges. The secret to cultivating such a style lies in the clothing pieces you put together. It does take a little patience and effort when it comes to cultivating outfits. But, it's all worth it because the end result is a cute look without breaking the bank. So, today I thought I would share with you some style tips to get you looking luxe for less!

Accessorizing is key.

Accessorizing, in general, is how you complete a look and it helps make your outfit look a little bit more chic on a budget. Go for statement sunglasses, ones that fit your face shape, for a classic statement to finish off your look. You can also opt for dainty jewelry which is such a great way to create a minimal and luxe looks for less. You can also go for a cute statement bag to complete your look. Regardless, accessorize to fit and complete the look for your outfit of choice.

Here are some inexpensive statement accessory pieces.




When in doubt, go with neutrals.

Literally, if you're in doubt just create a look with neutrals. Neutrals are such a classic and easy color palette to style with. Neutrals tend to fit all styles and make for classic and luxe outfit. This being said, don't shy away from colors. Try switching it up from the neutrals and incorporate colors into your outfits. This is because colors paired the right way with neutral clothing pieces can also create A LOOK.

Style around a statement piece.

The key to cultivating a luxe look is the statement clothing piece. Pick a clothing item that you would like to be the focus and style the rest of your outfit around that statement piece. Alternatively, is styling around a statement bag. The idea is allowing the statement bag to be the statement accessory for your look and cultivating your outfit with that piece in mind. You could honestly wear such a basic outfit but, by pairing it with a statement bag you've instantly elevated that look.

Structured clothing is key.

In general, structured clothing always upgrades an outfit several notches. From your structured blazers to structured skirts. Adding any structured clothing piece to your outfit instantly elevates your look and adds a classic feel to any look as well.

Monochrome madness it is.

This is low-key a style hack that tends to look both flattering and luxe. So, if you've been through your fourth outfit change and are over it, just go with a monochromatic look. Black on black on black? This is the most common neutral monochromatic look most of us are guilty of. Either way, this one color outfit combo makes for a simply luxe-put together look. Just pick a color to style a whole look around tailored to your personal style and you're good to go.

Mix it up with textures and materials.

When it comes to your outfit, play with different textures and contrasting material. Say you wear a basic look, like a black t-shirt and jeans. Just by grabbing a clothing item in different material like a faux fur or teddy coat to throw on over the outfit, you managed to completely elevate the look.
Textured Fabrics: You can also choose textured pieces with luxe finishes like lace, tweed, jacquard or faux fur. There's also those clothing pieces with special detailing like fringe, embroidery or embellishments.

Keep it Clean, Pressed, and Tailored.

Make sure clothing is clean and pressed, it's such a simple way to look luxe because it instantly helps make you look put together. Also, it's important that clothes fit your body right and hug all parts of your body the right way. You'll end up feeling a lot more comfortable and confident in the outfit you're wearing and those vibes radiate off of you. It's those confident vibes that'll help you look luxe and serve looks for free.

Match your shoes and bag.

Matching your shoes to your bag whether it's based on color or material will always instantly elevate your looks. This is a style tip that can elevate even the most basic look and make it look luxe.

Invest in quality pieces.

These are pieces that can stand the test of time in your wardrobe. This is also a matter of how you choose to spend your focus and money on clothing. It's great to save and spend on set classic quality items that will last you a long time and can be used to curate multiple different looks.

Spring Layering 101


The weather is finally starting to warm up a bit and I couldn't be more excited to ditch the heavy coats for lighter clothing pieces. Spring is that transitional season and with the weather switching it up on us, we need to be prepped have Spring layering down. Spring also calls for new trends and incorporating fun pops of color into your wardrobe and day-to-day looks. After a long winter of neutrals, it's time to switch things up and incorporate some pops of color, pastels, and prints into your wardrobe and every day looks! So, regardless of the ever-changing spring weather, these are some tips on Spring layering to get you prepped and looking cute this season.

Mixing It Up With Spring Prints

Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking. (Literally channeling the very Miranda Prestley of The Devil Wears Prada.) Florals are such a tired and tried print so, I'm thinking pinstripes this Spring. I've been seeing pinstripes everywhere this season, and even have a couple of pinstripe patterned clothing pieces in my wardrobe. Pinstripes are such a versatile statement print to incorporate into your everyday Spring looks. Pinstripes are a fresh statement print in itself, so, when it comes to Spring layering it's great to build a look with the clothing piece or set in that print as the focus. To build a look from that print, pair it with other solid colored clothing pieces in a similar color scheme or style.

Play With Fun Pops Of Color

After a long winter of sticking to the neutrals, it's definitely time we switch things up and incorporate some fun pops of color and pastels into our everyday looks. I've gradually mixed things up a bit when it comes to my everyday spring looks by incorporating color and pairing spring prints with light versatile winter clothing pieces.
And that's generally the idea when it comes to Spring layering. You want to build a layered look using light-weight and versatile clothing pieces. These light-weight and versatile clothing pieces usually tend to be the transitional pieces straight from your winter wardrobe paired with Spring staples. So, find that colorful clothing piece or accessory using that as the statement piece in your look and build an outfit around it using other transitional clothing pieces.

What are transitional clothing pieces?

Transitional pieces are perfect for the confusing weather in between seasons. These are the clothing pieces you keep in your closet year-round and are items in your closet that are usually light-weight and will layer easily. These clothing pieces can keep you warm or cool and can be dressed up or down depending on your fashion needs. Some examples of the best transitional pieces include amazing light outerwear like a light trenchcoat, leather jacket or denim jacket. There are also summer-ey pieces like a satin slip dress that could be layered over a turtleneck sweater.


Get the Look: Phillip Plein Vintage Mickey Mouse Leather Jacket, Net-A-Porter T by Alexander Wang, Charlotte Russe Faux Leather Crop Top (Inexpensive Alternative), ASOS Black Panama Hat, UrbanOG Qupid Buckle Cut Out Bootie, Tobi Wash Rolled Hem Shorts, ASOS Buckle Waist Belt (Similar Item), Forever21 Faux Leather Backpack (Similar Item), Icing Thick Black Velvet Choker, Target Thigh High Opaque Stockings

Double It Up On Jackets

If your single moto jacket won't cut it when it comes to the weather, don't be afraid to add another. This is a great way to incorporate your transitional pieces and stay warm in cooler weather.

Layers On Top

If your legs are fine with the cool Spring breeze, this is the type of layering style for you. The focus is to layer using transitional pieces and keep your upper body bundled. So, say you're wearing a pair of shorts or a skirt. You can build from this look by layering a basic tee or knit sweater on top. And then add some leather jacket or denim piece to top the look off. Another look option would be a turtleneck, casual t-shirt dress, moto jacket, shoes, and socks combo.



Layering with Overalls

'90s style is back and having it's moment with overalls back in full force. Overalls are a stylish Spring staple that can be styled numerous ways and is perfect for Spring layering. This is a piece that can be layered under or over everything from a blouse or a t-shirt to a turtleneck sweater. Throw them on over a shirt and maybe layer underneath an oversized coat if it's a bit chilly outside. There are many ways to style this versatile piece to suit your style and fashion needs for Spring.



Layering with Dresses

This is just a great way to get creative when it comes to layering with your Summer/Spring dresses. Simply begin by layering your dress with a shirt, a turtleneck or blouse underneath, this will not only make your outfit weather-friendly but also transform your final look entirely. You can even go a different route and layer your dress with a chunky knit sweater on top. So, definitely take this and experiment to your liking.

Get Creative With Your Crop Tops

These aren't pieces that should just sit at the back of your closet until June comes around. A crop top makes for the perfect layering piece over a button down top. A cropped sweater is also another great transition piece that you can layer over longer tops.


Get the Look: ASOS Denim Jacket, Bebe Ribbed Off the Shoulder Top, Urban Outfitters Denim Button-Front Skirt, Karl Lagerfeld Paris Esme Velvet Bow Sneaker

Accessorizing With Scarves

Say goodbye to those chunky scarves and hello to silk ones. The idea when it comes to Spring layering is to keep it light and relaxed. So, swap out the chunky winter scarves for lighter ones that you can throw on when it's chilly and take off once it gets warmer throughout the day.

And...that was the Spring Layering rundown to have you prepped and looking cute this season! How do you dress for the awkward and ever-changing Spring weather? Let me know in the comments!

Celebrity Style for LESS!


These fashion-forward street style looks are some of the celebrity looks that were spotted on the city streets of Los Angeles and New York. All of these outfits incorporate some of the trendiest fashion staples of the year, and you could possibly snag a similar look...for less! So, let's get into it because I'm bringing you the latest street style and insta-style looks worn by Ariana Grande, Selena Gomez, Skai Jackson and Bella Hadid for less.  

Selena Gomez

I'm obsessed with this outfit Selena Gomez wore because it's such a cute, simple and affordable look that anyone can purchase and wear. The fashion staple that I adore in this look would have to be the colorfully striped t-shirt. The t-shirt paired with the denim jacket and the rest of this look just adds a vintage '70s twist to the outfit which I personally really like. 





Ariana Grande

I adore this look that Ariana Grande is wearing from head to toe. It gives off vibes from the movie Clueless because of the classic mustard yellow plaid. Plaid is really in right now, as well as, bold colors like the yellow in this look and the faux fur coat. This look is so fashion-forward and styled perfectly in a way where each fashion trend within this outfit complements one another and doesn't clash.

Get the Look: Callipygian Bare Bow Top, Urban Outfitters Ami Faux Fur Collarless Coat (SOLD OUT), Callipygian Plaid Kick Flare Pants, Saint Laurent Platform Ankle Boots



Bella Hadid

This look is more on the grunge side and is such a different style from what we're used to seeing from Bella Hadid. I adore how this look was paired together from the classic baker boy hat to the gray distressed denim. If you're into grunge style, this is the look for you to style on your own for less!




Skai Jackson

This denim on denim look spotted on Skai Jackson is genuinely perfection. This look on its own has many different amazing fashion staples from the distressed boyfriend jeans to the oversized denim shirt with the bold text on the back. Denim has been an ongoing trend and this outfit is styled fabulously using the denim on denim trend. So, you can definitely take inspiration from this when curating your next denim on denim look!

The New York Fashion Week Trends To Rock On Campus


Fall/Winter ' 18 New York Fashion Week kicked off this February in New York City. And, of course, with Fashion Week comes beautiful collections and a lot of style inspiration. Several weeks back I made a couple of fashion rundown posts about trends that will either stay or come into the frontline of fashion for 2018. Needless to say, many of those trends were seen on the runway this Fashion Week. Here are some of the New York Fashion Week-inspired trends straight from the runways that you can also rock on your school campus.

Puffer Coats

Oversized coats made a statement on the runways this fashion week. One of these oversized styles includes the puffer coat. Try pairing the coat with a basic top and your everyday jeans, as well as, with a pair of sneakers to complement it. Puffer Coats are such a cute and effortless clothing piece to style, all whilst keeping you warm as well.

Get the look: MISSGUIDED Yellow Oversized Puffer Jacket, Urban Outfitters High Waisted Light Wash Jeans, Urban Outfitters High Rise Light Blue Skinny Jeans, Forever21 White Crew Neck Tee


Tea Dresses

Tea-length floral dresses were seen across several runways, especially at the Michael Kors show this fashion week. Although the style can be a bit extra for class, there are some cute and effortless tea dress styles that you can totally rock on campus. Tea dresses are such fun and feminine clothing pieces to wear and would look cute paired with either over-the-knee boots, sneakers, or flats.

Faux Fur Coats

Faux Fur Coats were the fashion statement seen all over runways and city streets throughout New York Fashion Week. Designer Christian Siriano opened his show with Ashley Graham wearing this gorgeous floor-length bold red coat. This made for two beautifully executed statements in one being the bold red color and oversized floor length coat style. A simple but, chic way to pull off this trend is to wear a faux fur coat over your outfit for a fashion-forward ensemble.

This fashion-forward queen, Brittney Hughes (@brittneyfhughes) manages to keep her look chic and effortless in how she styles this statement faux fur jacket. The colors within this look complement each other nicely, and underneath the statement faux fur jacket are two simple clothing pieces that work well together. She completes the look by wearing these retro cat eye statement sunglasses. All in all, love her style and her written work, so definitely check out her blog and socials for more!

Colorful Faux Fur Coats

Faux Fur Coats took the runways and city streets by storm in bold and bright colors. Designers like Christian Siriano, Michael Kors and Tibi showcased these colorful furs within their collections at Fashion Week. A bright colored faux fur coat worn over your look would make a cute and bright statement as you strut through your campus.

Leopard Print

This cheetahlicious classic statement print has made a comeback this year, especially in the form of Faux Fur Coats. This season for Fashion Week, leopard print was seen in many bright colors on the runway at the Tom Ford Show. Style this classic ' 80s / ' 90s print in the form of a Leopard Faux Fur Coat over your outfit for a fashion-forward vintage look.


Colorful Tights

This colorful statement made its debut on the runways of designers Jeremy Scott and Adam Selman. If you don't want to stand out that much though when it comes to this statement piece, I'd recommend wearing the colorful tights underneath distressed jeans. That way it takes the statement and makes it a little bit more subtle.

Bright Colors

The runways were incredibly colorful this season for Fashion Week. Many designers from Tom Ford to Tibi to Voltaire sent colorful collections down the runways. Bright Yellows, Pinks, oranges and so forth were seen on every runway throughout Fashion Week. Bright colors were showcased on many different prints and fabrics from the bright and bold animal prints to the bright colored faux furs. So, with that being said, try to use this as inspiration to incorporate color into your wardrobe!

Consider taking a colorful clothing piece and pair it with your neutral looks to make a colorful statement. Adding bright colored clothing pieces to your outfit is a great way to brighten up your look this season! Faith (@just.imani) does just that in this fashion-forward, yet, effortless look in which she pairs a bright yellow jacket with an all black outfit. This was a great way to add a bright statement color to a mostly neutral look. Also, I personally, adore her style and writing so definitely take the time to check out her blog and socials!

Plaid seems to be everywhere right now and the runways are no exception.

Simple ways to pull off this trend are by throwing on a pair of checkered or gingham pants and styling around them.
