On-Trend: The Camel Coat

With cold weather season beginning it’s essential for every fashionista to have an amazing coat to bundle up in. This season the camel coat is having a major fashion moment. Seen on everyone from Kim Kardashian to Jennifer Lawrence, the timeless neutral is so versatile and can be paired with nearly everything. It also adds a touch of sophistication to any outfit.

High quality outerwear is a great investment, but that doesn’t mean you have to spend a fortune! I’ve curated my top picks for the trend with something for every budget.

Camel Coats 3

Belted Waist 
I am in LOVE with this style. So chic and sophisticated, yet so effortless. The cinched waist is extremely flattering, plus with short and long versions there is a perfect fit for everyone. Not to mention, the thick wool will keep you cozy and warm!

Misguided Belted Waterfall Coat $51 //  Dolly Rocka Frankie Nude Camel Coat $60

Boohoo Sofia Belted Wool Coat $60 //   H&M Wool-Blend Coat $99

Camel Peacoats

Peacoat
Peacoats are a classic style, and I love the lengths and variations within the style. This is perfect for a less dramatic (?) effect. If you tend to shy away from “trendy” styles and statement pieces, this would be a better option when compared to the belted waist style. Plus this preppy and structured style can be dressed up or down. 

Thread & Supply Double-Breasted Peacoat, On Sale for $37.90 //  Gap Wool Peacoat, $198

Miss Selfridge Military Peacoat, $91 //  Old Navy Wool-Blend Peacoat, $37

Camel Trench Coats

Trench
Trench coats make me think of classic films – specifically the final scene in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. This style is timeless and comes in various fabrics, so the coat can be heavy and warm or lightweight – for you lucky readers who live somewhere warmer during the fall and winter months.

Lauren Ralph Lauren Gabardine Trench Coat, On Sale for $73.13 // Forever 21 Cotton-Blend Trench Coat, $47.90 //

Calvin Klein Double Breasted Trench Coat, $99.98

Steal Her Style: Selena Gomez’s Pop of Color

Steal Her Style - Selena Gomez

Now this is how to make a pop of color work for fall! Selena Gomez recently stepped out in style in this bright red-orange duster and gray jean combo. I’m in love with the duster, but sadly the piece from Lela Rose isn’t up for grabs just yet. (The designer has yet to release the collection to the public.) Until that moment comes, we’ll just have to rock this re-creation instead. Not only is this Longline Sleeveless Jacket a dead ringer for her coat, but the Cheetah Dot D’Orsay Pump is an exact match for Selena’s purrfect pumps!

This outfit is perfect as we transition into the colder months of fall, and composed of versatile closet staples. Recreate this bold look for less with our finds:

Miss Selfridge Longline Sleeveless Jacket // $35.00

Gap Collarless Bib Popover // $46.99

Zara Reform Jeans // $49.90

Charming Charlie Medium Square Lock Satchel // $39.00

Sole Society Jenn D’Orsay Pump  // $79.95

zeroUV Wayfarer Frame Sunglasses  // $9.99

Denim Dream

One of my favorite pieces in my closet is my chambray shirt. It’s classic, lightweight and extremely easy for layering. As we head into the fall season — fall fashion is my favorite, bring on the cozy oversized sweaters — I thought it would be a great time to show you how to wear this piece in a way that is sometimes daunting to fashion lovers, the double denim look.
Chambray Look 1 This look is so chic and the statement accessories pop – I love to include leopard print whenever I can. Denim on denim can be   a tricky combo, but it’s totally achievable without looking frumpy. The key is using different shades of denim. This chambray shirt is a shade or two lighter than the jeans, so it doesn’t look monochromatic. We kept the look simple with the leopard shoes and incorporated gold and black pieces. This look is perfect for a casual day out or even when you want to look put together when running between classes on campus!

Steal Her Style: Kendall Jenner’s Fringe Flair

SHS: Kendall Jenner

2015 is definitely the year of the supermodel. Originally in the ’90s we had names like Tyra Banks, Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss. Today we have Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss and Cara Delevnigne, just to name a few. With new model style icons comes must-see celebrity street style! Kendall Jenner recently stepped out in this ensemble that featured western and ’70s inspiration. Her large-buckle western inspired belt has been seen this summer in many of Jenner’s outfits and even on other celebs like Selena Gomez, and we found the exact one. Her fringe bag and suede boots are also on-trend for the fall season – we found the exact bag and River Island booties that are a replica for Jenner’s Saint Laurent booties.

Whether you’re popping out to run a few errands or spending the day with the girls, this outfit is perfect for exuding a casual chic look for the beginning of fall. Recreate this look with these fabulous finds:

Ruche Make A Difference Striped Blouse // $42.99

Maximum Style : Your Guide to Maxi Dresses

Maxi Look

Summer style is all about effortless looks and flowing fabrics. Maxi dresses have made a serious comeback this season and everyone is getting in on the trend. Recently while shopping someone had suggested that I try the style on and I shyed away from the offer. I’m barely 5’3″ how could a floor-skimming dress possibly work for my height? Maxi dresses, however, can be flattering on every shape and size. It just takes some knowledge of prints and waist styles to pull off this breezy look this summer. Let’s get started.

Petite: Search for a higher waistline to create the look of height and when using prints opt for smaller prints.

I feel like the way to go for a petite shape is high-low. The length isn’t too overwhelming but you still get the look of a maxi dress style. To create even more height opt for a higher waistline like the one used by Lush in their ‘Tulip Hem Maxi Dress.‘ Available in white, peach, light pink, pastel turquoise and black, and on sale now from Nordstrom for $25.20.

Pear: Seek out a color-blocked dress with a darker shade on the bottom half to get a slimming look

Skip the basic color block with this rendition from Jella C. This ‘Stripe Racerback Maxi Dress’ offers a high neckline and sportier look with a racerback style. I also love the look of the sheer black skirt layered over the shorter skirt. Get it today for only $48.00 at Nordstrom.

Stripe Maxi Dress

Hourglass: Show off your curves with a cinched waist and flared skirt.

I’m in love with this ‘Shoreside Vision Green Backless Maxi Dress’ from Lulu’s. I myself am petite, but I also have an hourglass figure and it’s taken a while but I’m finally learning how to dress for my shape. This dress is available for just $49 and it’s available in this kelly green or a royal blue and this high-neck style is backless! So gorgeous!

Busty: Opt for a V-neck style, the cut will flatter your body by not widening your chest.

Try Lulu’s ‘In Your Dreams’ Navy Blue Maxi Dress. At $49 its affordable, ultra lightweight and the thicker straps will balance our your upper body. I love the higher waistline too!

Athletic: Look longer and leaner with a fitted column shape.

ASOS’s ‘Selected Racerback Maxi Dress’ is perfect on it’s own or layered with a blazer or denim jacket. The solid and continuous silhouette creates a long and lean shape. Plus the racerback style adds a touch of sportiness to your look and accentuates your shoulders. It’s on sale for $40 right now!

Hopefully this guide will help you find the perfect maxi style to spend the rest of your summer in!

Steal Her Style: Supermodel Off Duty, Gigi Hadid

Gigi Hadid One of my favorite style icons, Gigi Hadid, recently stepped out in this model-off-duty look and I knew that I had to have it  (or at least recreate it). The cerulean jacket is to die for, but sadly enough the Elizabeth and James ‘Corlyn’ Leather Moto Jacket is sold out everywhere, a real bummer since the $245 price tag was steep but not completely out of reach. With this look, I swapped the bright blue jacket, for a navy blue style to offer a similar look that is perfect for a casual day out, when you still want to add some edge to your style. Channel your inner supermodel with these picks:

Topshop Moto ‘Hayden’ Ripped Jeans (Blue) // $80.00

Aerie Supersoft Crop Tee // $19.95

New York & Company Quilted Faux-Leather Moto Jacket // on sale for $44.97, original $89.95

Gap Black Slip-On Sneakers // $49.95

Lulu’s In Your Favor Black Purse // $45.00

Kay by Kay Unger Kelly Aviator Sunglasses // on sale for $14

Love the boldness of her light blue jacket? Hot Pink MotoSo do we! Another alternative we found was this hot pink biker jacket, a show-stopping statement piece perfect for the late summer months. Get it here for just $39.90!

Fall Denim Preview

Denim Preview
As we make our way toward the end of the summer, we also get closer to football season, crisp leaves, cozy sweaters, and pumpkin-flavored everything. To me, fall also means new jeans. Denim jeans are timeless, but every year designers and stylists create new ways to wear this staple piece. Refresh your denim wardrobe and channel your inner fashionista with these on-trend picks and styling tips. With designer duds pictured on the left and amazing denim deals pictured at right.

Distressed JeansDistressed

Add some edge to any look with distressed jeans. I’m not a huge fan of gaping holes, but I do love the look of frayed seams, razored denim and exposed threads and rips. Express’s Medium Wash Girlfriend Jean, has no holes, just exposed threads and ripped patches, and they feature a wider leg, and an ankle length. ( For $88.00 you’re getting more than one fall trend.)

Denim Deal: Pink Ice’s Industry Ripped High Waist Skinnys are a great alternative for Topshop’s pair at $49.99

An Alternative? Denim DIY with this distressed how-to post from The Every Girl.

Paint Splattered

Paint Splattered

In addition to the distressed trend, paint splattered jeans are also a hot style this fall. Some pairs can offer a splash of color, or a pop of white to your outfit. I love the messy, worn-in look and it shows off your inner creative side. My favorite pair, ASOS’s Dr. Denim Plenty Ankle Skinny Jeans With Paint Splash, are available for $82.00 and have white paint splatters that contrast with darker blue paint against the medium wash.

Denim Deal: Target brand Mossimo has also taken note of the trend. Check out their Mid Rise Skinny Jean available for $29.99

Another option is to DIY a pair yourself! Check out this past tutorial from Refinery 29 all about DIY Fashion and The Splatter-Paint Trend.

High-Rise SkinnyHigh-Waisted Skinny

I’ve always found high-rise skinny to look best on my petite frame, so comfortable and I love the look when paired with a tucked white tee and a comfy oversized sweater. I’m also a huge fan of very dark, almost black, jean washes so this pair is a dream. Lucky Brand’s Olivia Skinny Jean is absolutely perfect, and if you can afford the $99.00 go for it.

Denim Deal: Grab the look for less with H&M’s Skinny High Jeans for $39.95!

Girlfriend Style

Girlfriend Nothing says cool, comfortable and relaxed like a good pair of boyfriend or girlfriend jeans. Girlfriend styles will be more feminine and fitted as opposed to boyfriend jeans, but both styles are hot this season and feature a wider leg. Our go-to for this style is BP’s Girlfriend Jeans. A looser, relaxed fit plus a dark distressed denim at $62.00.

Denim Deal: ASOS Daisy Street Girlfriend Jean for $37.00 offer a plain alternative to the style.

Fitted Overalls  

Fitted Overalls

Yes, yes, yes! A favorite of mine as a child in the nineties, denim overalls or dungarees are getting a major style update! We’ve seen Taylor Swift rocking a similar style to the Lottie Denim Skinny Dungaree available from BooHoo for $52. Keep it on-trend by ensuring the style is fitted, with either skinny or flared legs and pair with a crop top to avoid the farmer feel.

Denim Deal: Steal a similar style for just $44.99 with Mango’s Dark Denim Dungarees.

FlaresFlared JeansThis year’s fashion trends have all been inspired by the ’70s, so of course flared jeans are hot for fall! Our favorite pair has to be Express’s Patch Pocket Mid Rise Bell Flare Jean. Priced at $79.90 it can be quite a stretch for your budget, but currently they’re offering a Buy 1, Get 1 for $29.90.

Denim Deal: Nail the same style with Dollhouse Flared Mid Rise Jeans from Nordstrom for only $44!

I can’t wait to re-stock my closet with these must-have jean styles. Which one is your favorite?

Rebel Yell: Kendall and Kylie’s ‘Las Rebeldes’ Collection

RebelYell

Las Rebeldes, Kendall and Kylie Jenner’s latest collab with PacSun, is officially online and in store! The 27-piece collection features playful prints, fringe, lace and embroidery and strays from the duo’s typical bohemian-inspired collections, since Las Rebeldes was inspired by south-western styles with a Spanish twist. However, Kendall and Kylie’s California-cool style still shines through with several crop tops, oversized hats and on-trend denim — including a pair of black skinny overalls!

The collection has been available online, but in store is your best chance to nab some sold-out pieces, like the Cutout Side Tank Romper. And with the pieces ranging from  $19.95  to $59.95, it’s only a matter of time before the collection is completely sold out!

Check out Kendall and Kylie’s campaign video and some of the pieces below, then head over to PacSun to get your shop on.
