I clearly had this page marked n my magazine lol

I was looking through the Lucky Magazine September issue (I’m still waiting for my others, I think someone is “borrowing” them and not returning them if you know what I mean) Anyway, I saw an Old Navy add and their new Tuxedo Skinnies and instantly fell in love. So naturally I went looking for other brands with similar designs.

What I Want Now: Tuxedo Stripe Skinnies

SOLD Design Lab tuxedo stripe skinny jeans / Rich & Skinny jeans / Flying Monkey tuxedo jeans

These pants are so versatile. They can go from day to night instantly with a change of accessories. I will definitely be adding a pair or two (or three) to my fall wardrobe lol so you know I say Rock It! What are your thoughts on this trend?

The weather is slowly going back in to the 30s and 40s (boo). Until Spring officially arrives all we can do is think of all of the amazing looks we can put together. So today I have a formula for a full proof simple and chic look featuring singer and actress Naturi Naughton. Check it out with item details below.

I love that she went with a high bun so that you can see her features and kept her makeup light and natural.

How to transition from day to night

So yesterday you saw the essential items and look # 1 which was for a casual work look. Well today I have two more looks. One will be for a casual day of shopping and using the same pieces I will turn the outfit in to something that you can wear for a night out with the girls or dinner with the boo. Check out the looks below

I don’t know too many people besides June Ambrose and other fashion divas that can comfortably shop in high heel shoes. So for the first look I paired a denim shirt tied at the front with black skinny jeans and red flats. This look is great for shopping because I always say “Never go shopping looking like you NEED new clothes. Sales associates are more likely to help those who are more put together.” I have seen this happen with my own eyes. Women, and some men, who wear sweatpants and baggy t-shirts or ill fitting clothes are often overlooked. So this look is very appropriate. You want a look that is casual yet chic. Denim tops and skinny jeans will always be a timeless combo. Add in red flats for a pop of color and you have instant flare!

Going from Day to Night

For the second look I just changed the shoes. For any type of day to night look a change of the shoes and accessories is all that is needed. The heels say I am sexy, but the rest of the look adds sophistication. You can be sexy without wearing super tight clothing and this look proves it. Rock a bold red lip and you are ready to hit the town. I also went bigger and better with the jewelry to help make this look standout.

So with a quick change of shoes and accessories, you instantly went from day to night! Stay tuned for the next few looks in this series! Check out the previous post as well click here

To help kick things off, I have created my “Rock Star” Look. I would describe my style as classic with a modern twist and a hint of romance, so this is totally out of my element.

To achieve a rock star look you definitely need something black and something leather. You also need a graphic t-shirt and some skinny jeans or jeans that have been distressed or have that grungy feel. Converses, riding boots, or combat boots are the obvious options for your feet. You can also add accessories like fingerless gloves, spiked vests,  and of course shorts with ripped fishnets. The point of the rock star look is to appear tough and edgy.

So for my version of a rock star look, I paired my burgundy skinny jeans with a graphic tank- yes my tank has pearls lol- with my leather motorcycle jacket. I paired my look with a pair of black heels. I couldn’t get rid of myself totally so I added the heels and tank with the pearls lol. Do you all like my tough face in the first pic? Lol it didn’t last very long because I love smiling!
