    Having a date is kind of a sweet trouble for many ladies. On one hand, you share romatic monents with your love one. On the other hand, you should think about the outfits you are going to  put on. However, that can be easy if you begin with occasions.

    Movies

    When going on a date to the movies, you want to make sure you wear something you'll be comfortable sitting in for a few hours. But this doesn't mean you need to keep it totally casual. Go for something in-between. Pair a short black skirt with a classic white tank top and a cozy denim jacket, because it can sometimes get a little chilly in the theater. White Converse are a perfect choice for footwear. As far as accessories go, keep it simple with a charm necklace and a small shoulder bag to hold your phone, wallet and a pack of gum.

    Dinner

    For dinner dates, you definitely need to dress it up a bit. No sneakers or ripped jeans allowed! We're not suggesting you sport a floor-length ball gown, but a cute light-colored dress will do just the trick. Layer an elegant cardigan over it for an added classy feel. For footwear, black flats will complete your ensemble seamlessly. A crystal necklace and a matching set of crystal rings are sure to make you stand out in the accessories department, but make sure you don't mix metals. Carry whatever you need in an adorable white clutch.

    Concert

    Concert dates are all about comfort, but you also want to stand out from the crowd. Show off your unique personality by rocking a ringer tee with a witty saying and a leather jacket embellished with tons of pins and patches. High-waisted ripped black skinny jeans are the only bottoms you should wear to a concert, especially because you can keep everything you need in your pockets so you won't have to lug around a purse throughout the whole event. Keep the footwear comfy and cazj by sporting black Vans. If you want to rock a little extra bling, add some stacked rings to your fingers.

    Beach

    Beach dates are one of the easiest outings to plan for when it comes to attire. The foundation of your outfit is obviously your fave swimsuit. No need to purchase a new one for this date, though. You should always wear the one-piece or two-piece that makes you feel most comfortable. Overlay your bathing suit with denim shorts and a white T-shirt. Don't forget to bring a jacket, in case it gets cold, and a beach tote to hold all of your belongings and beach day activities. Oh, and sandals are where it's at with your footwear.

    Museum

    If you're looking to feel a little artsy and mysterious while on your museum date, this ensemble is for you. All you need is a black floral-patterned dress paired with tons of black accessories—a brimmed hat, booties, choker and mini-backpack. You'll definitely get your crush's attention looking like a total art babe!

    Bowling

    With bowling dates, you want to make sure whatever you wear gives you plenty of mobility. How are you supposed to beat your crush if you can't quite move your arms? Rock some ripped mom jeans and a loose flannel with any sort of tennis shoes. The shoes aren't too important, since you'll be trading them in for some ever-so-stylish bowling kicks. And don't forget to bring an embellished backpack to keep all of your belongings safe while you destroying your crush on the bowling lane.

    Hiking

    If you want to do a hiking date right, you have to go as early as possible. This way it won't be too unbearably hot when you're making your way back. Pair your favorite pair of joggers or workout pants with a flowy tank and a zip-up hoodie. Footwear should obviously be any sort of running or athletic shoes you own. You can't forget about a water bottle, because you will get thirsty (in more ways than one) while hiking with your crush.

    Mini Golf

    Similar to bowling, mini golf requires some sort of mobility. It's not as serious as bowling, but you still want to be able to move freely. Pair a cozy sweater with some classic blue jeans and fold-over combat boots. For your bag, sport some sort of whimsical cross-body bag that gives some sort of insight to your personality. Your crush will be sure to notice, making it the perfect conversation starter. If you want, feel free to add some layered chokers to your neck to bring the whole look together.

    How many times have you wanted to wear a certain lip color, but changed your mind at the last minute because you couldn't think of an outfit to match, or you didn't know how to do your makeup to go with it? It happens to me all the time. I go to shops, buy a cute lip color, and then it just sits in my lipstick bag. I have a special makeup bag dedicated to lipstick.

    I love lipstick and I want to inspire myself to wear mine more. So to help myself and you, I've created this guide. Here's what to wear with bold lip colors:

     

    Red

     red

    Red lips are classic, sexy, timeless, and a bit intimidating for some! I have many shades of red lipstick -- I am so in love! When I put it on I feel like I can conquer the world. Plus, wearing red lipstick makes your teeth look whiter and who doesn't love that?

     

    Follow some of these basic red lipstick tips and go conquer the day:

    1 Stick with a light to medium eye look. In general, don't go too dark or heavy with the eye makeup or else there will be too much going on.

    2 Your outfit doesn't have to be all neutral, but don't add too much color either. If you want to have some other red in the outfit, then make it a shade lighter or darker than your lips to avoid looking overly matchy.

    3 Blue is a great color to wear with red lipstick because the shades are complimentary.

    Add a little something extra with bold brows.

     

    Hot Pink

     Hot Pink

    I will admit that seldom do I wear hot pink lipstick, but I am still obsessed with the look! The best part is that hot pink can be worn in any season.

     

    Use these tips to make hot pink lipstick work with your wardrobe:

    1 Again, stick to a natural eyeshadow look. These shades are usually quite eye-catching, so you want to balance them with a lighter eye.

    2 If you wear blush, stay in the same color family and go a shade or two lighter.

    3 Keep your outfit neutral. If you want a pop of color, then throw on something navy. Otherwise, save the really bright colors for the spring! Remember that the lip color is the focus.

    4 The more fair skinned you are, the lighter and brighter the pink you can pull off. Alternatively, darker skinned ladies can rock deeper, richer hot pinks with ease.

     

    Plum/Burgundy

     Plum/Burgundy

    This is one of the easiest lip colors out there to match with clothing -- and one of the most versatile! This lip color reminds me of the Vampire Diaries (no complaints there) and is the PERFECT color for fall. It's dark, but not overly dramatic.

     

    If you want to try plum lip color, here are a few pointers: 

    1 Clothing wise, almost anything goes because plum is such a versatile color!

    2 If you're fair skinned, go for a deep berry color, while medium to dark skin tones can get away with a true wine and dark burgundy.

    3 Stray away from red and pink blushes, and look for blushes that are neutral, bronzed, or even a berry tone.

    4 Keep the eye shadow nude.

    When traveling during the winter, it can be tempting to leave behind slush-soaked sidewalks and cheek-scorching winds for sunny skies and an easy ocean breeze. But there are so many places that are strikingly beautiful—and far less crowded—during the colder months. Aside from ski resort towns, there are generous off-season deals to be found all throughout Europe, and the long weekends in January and February are perfect for a short, snowy getaway close to home.

    But more so in winter than any other time of year, packing smart is essential. Do your research to see just how low temperatures could drop, and if you’re sensitive to cold, bring a big, warm coat instead of trying to layer yourself into immobility. You can always tuck it into the overhead bin if you don’t want to wear it on the plane, though (believe it or not) it's possible to pack a heavy winter jacket.

    Sneakers always make for comfy travel shoes, but they're not as useful in the face of a wintry mix. If there’s even a chance of chilled precipitation where you’re headed, invest in sturdy, waterproof boots with good traction and room for a thick sock. Warm, dry feet can be the difference between a fun, active day and one that’s reduced to the time you spent as a sad, human-shaped ice cube.

    Yes, winter boots tend to be bulky—even the cute ones—and are admittedly a pain to take off at airport security. But don't let that deter you. Boot removal amounts to no more than a cumulative 15 minutes of your trip, accounting for very complicated boots, whereas you’ll be spending hours on end braving the elements. If you do decide to pack a pair, stuff them full of smaller items to save room.

     

     A perfectly prim look

     

    A perfectly prim look for destinations that won’t greet you with torrential rain or snow, this winter travel outfit offers timeless style that you can wear for years to come without worrying that any piece will go out of style.

    To wear an outfit like this it’s all in the fit. Make sure your jacket isn’t too bulky for your frame and the length of your jeans is hemmed to your height. Having a great tailor guarantees you’ll always look on point whether you’re rocking an investment coat or even a pair of sweats. They way a garment falls on your body is everything.

     

      basic look

     

    If all you ever wanted in a travel outfit was a basic look that offered more function than fashion, keep your accessories top of mind. A pair of understated feminine earrings plus statement purse can make even a standard puffer vest and cable knit sweater look Insta-ready.

     

     airplane fashion

     

    This look is not for the fashion-novice. Pulling off an oversized trench, sweats, and casual sneakers can be translated in many ways when it comes to airplane fashion.

    However, this seems to be the winter travel outfit of choice for many fashionistas as I saw at the airport two weeks ago. If you can pull it off, you get bonus points. Are you up for the challenge?

    While the wedding hat has been a popular accessory in years gone by, it’s rare to see guests dressed up in statement headpieces these days. In fact, research by party and occasion wear website revealed that the popularity of hats at weddings has plummeted in recent years. Of those surveyed, only 13 per cent of those said they would wear one over a fascinator and nearly 29 per cent stated they wouldn’t wear any headwear at all. But, whether you’re a fan or not there are certainly reasons for and against hats for weddings. It adds a special touch to your attire.

    Let’s face it, just about any cocktail dress can looking wedding-ready with the addition of a stylish hat. A hat can make the simplest of dresses look smart and make you feel a million dollars too.

     Wedding hat ideas for ladies

    At a wedding, it’s not only the bride’s dress that matters – most wedding guests like to put their all into their attire. Wedding hats play into the fun, dress-up aspect of the wedding – and of course, there’s that unspoken competition for best hat too.

    If there’s one member of the wedding party that can pull off a hat it’s the mother of the bride. Second to the bride, a mother’s outfit is as much under the watchful eye of guests as the bride’s – so she can never look overdressed. Plus, it’s a long-lasting tradition too.

    A bride opting for a classic and formal affair will usually like to stick to tradition – this means hats for the ladies and suits for the guys. A sea of ladies in hats can also add a certain vibe to a wedding, making the day feel that little more regal.

     Wedding hat ideas for ladies

    Hats at weddings are an age-old tradition and don’t always complement today’s weddings. If you’re attending a vintage-style wedding or fun festival affair, it may be best to pick something better suited to the wedding theme - such as a floral clip or vintage headband.

    Attending a wedding can be costly. Firstly, you need to find (and usually buy) an appropriate outfit, then there’s the matching jewellery and shoes, plus overnight accommodation costs, a wedding gift and cash for drinks. Finding a hat to match your attire can be stressful and expensive – plus you’re unlikely to wear it after the ceremony – or ever again!

    If you struggle to pull off a hat, or you’re looking for an alternative to a hat, why not experiment with different headwear accessories?

     

    Fascinator

    Fascinators are perhaps a better choice than hats for a wedding. While hats complement tailoring and are best suited to events like Ascot, fascinators look oh-so-glam when teamed with a cocktail dress.

     Wedding hat ideas for ladies

    Headband

    Headbands are no longer only appropriate for little girls. With designers like Louis Vuitton and Dolce and Gabbana showing off stylish headbands on this year’s catwalks, just about anyone can carry off headband. Opt for something intricate in style, something with a little sparkle, or a boho-inspired band to wear across your head.

     Wedding hat ideas for ladies

    Floral crown

    Best suited to younger guests and young adults, a floral crown is a great option for a wedding. Of course, it’s not an appropriate choice for every wedding but if a festival celebration is on the cards it’s the perfect accessory.

    Winter date nights are especially harder to dress up for because you’ll want to achieve a lot of things, especially looking cute and staying warm. Now, we all know that comfort should be the number one priority when it comes to picking out an outfit but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style. If you’ve got a date planned out with your man soon, check out these winter date night outfit ideas that’ll help you come up with stylishly comfy outfits that will wow your guy.

     

    Sweater Dress

    Sweater Dress

    If you’re looking for something easy and laidback for a casual winter dinner date, just throw on that sweater dress, put on a few accessories, slip into a pair of comfy boots and you’re good to go! What’s great about a sweater dress is that you can always dress it up or dress it down, depending on the look that you’re going for and the kind of date you’re going to.

     

    Shift Dress

    Shift Dress

    So maybe you're going on more first dates than you have outfits for (get it, girl!), or maybe your first date came together at the last minute, and there was no time to plan. You still need an outfit that packs a punch. Take a tip from here: A shift dress is a flattering choice for what to wear on a first date! Add a few accessories and a sexy pair of pumps, and you're ready to go.

     

    Blouse & Skirt

     Blouse & Skirt

    Men will vary on their opinion as to what to wear on a first date, but most agree they like it when you keep things simple. Pam of The Girl From Panama found a look that does just that so you can simply copy it: Pair a silky blouse with a mini skirt, and add personality with accessories.

     

    Tuxedo Dress

     Tuxedo Dress

    A little black dress is a no-brainer for a first date. For a first date that requires a little dressing up, we like the idea of putting a twist on the classic piece. It could be a cool fabric such as tweed or a style like Helena of Brooklyn Blonde's tuxedo dress. Tip: Tone down a deep neckline with a big necklace.

    Shirt Dress + Tailored Vest

     Shirt Dress + Tailored Vest

    Layering will easily extend the wear time of your dress collection to winter work outfits. Pair a warm, tailored vest over a fluid shirt dress, adding tights or boots if the weather warrants.

     

    Long Cardigan + Skinny Pants

     Long Cardigan + Skinny Pants

    A maxi-length cardigan is the perfect cozy layer for winter work outfits. Re-create this look seen on Helena of Brooklyn Blonde for your next casual Friday: a long cardigan, a basic tee, and skinny pants in neutral hues.

     

    Turtleneck Sweater + Tapered Pants

     Turtleneck Sweater + Tapered Pants

    Swapping a few basic workwear staples will do wonders for your winter work outfits. Slip on a textured turtleneck sweater, as Mary of Happily Grey did, instead of a silk blouse; and try tapered wool pants instead of a skinny or straight pair.

     

    Chunky Sweater + Pencil Skirt

     Turtleneck Sweater + Tapered Pants

    Try reworking office staples like the pencil skirt for easy winter work outfits. A turtleneck sweater over a basic white shirt and tall socks with pointed ankle boots are both warm and stylish. For the most professional look, opt for layers that are streamlined and in a simple color palette.

     

    Poncho Sweater + Wide-Leg Pants

     Poncho Sweater + Wide-Leg Pants

    Nothing is easier on late mornings than an all-black work outfit. Change up your usual pairing with an infinity scarf or a cozy poncho sweater on top

    Once October hits, my traditional combination of a black tube skirt + crop top + heels has to take a hike. Maybe you're thinking, Why don’t you just wear tight jeans or something? Uh, have you ever tried to twerk in a pair of jeans? Do you also have a hernia? I can work my back until I paralyze myself, but nothing is going to jiggle.

    There’s also the whole cold outside / hot inside paradox of clubbing. Once you get inside, it's 500 degrees with 100% humidity. (Sweating in jeans is one of my least favorite activities, right behind licking subway poles).

    But since I love you guys, I’ve whipped up three winter club outfits with pretty clothes, shoes, makeup, and pictures of booze. Yay booze!

    Since we haven’t exactly hit winter yet, let’s start with a transitional outfit:

     club outfits in winter

    I need to point out that I wore this exact hoodie and leather jacket combination last weekend, and was shocked by how warm it was. You would think that because the layers are thin you would feel a chill, but I would not lie to you guys -– these feel toasty. I’ve also been obsessed with thigh-high boots ever since I saw Miranda Kerr and Olivia Palermo wearing them. Thigh-high boots are the best alternative to pants -- you can show a little bit of leg (or none at all), and you don’t have to retire your LBDs right away.

    Once winter hits, you may want to consider implementing these pieces into your wardrobe:

     club outfits in winter

    Armpit sweat circles are the bane of my existence, so if I’m going to wear sleeves they better be black. This dress is great -- the waistline is flattering, there’s a little bit of boob action, and it can fit various levels of formality with savvy accessorizing skills. Thermal tights are also a must; ice skating rinks have nothing on a New York City polar vortex. Last, if you’re going to wear a coat, it might as well be one that doesn’t look like a sleeping bag. Parkas are great and everything, but side-eyes from coat check girls can kill a homie’s vibe.

    Now this last look involves sneakers and a blanket so bear with me:

     club outfits in winter

    This is the most casual option of the three ensembles, but also has some of my favorite pieces -- the first being a BLANKET JACKET! I am giving you permission to go out in a blanket… doesn’t that just make you hype to no end? Whether you wear sneakers to the club totally depends on the venue and your personal style. As with any of these looks, I’m only offering suggestions towards pieces and styling options. Choose what makes you feel badass and confident, because that’s what makes you sexy anyway.

    My favorite part about this time of year is attending holiday parties with my friends and family. Christmas eve is a holiday full of so much anticipation and joy; it is no wonder that most holiday parties occur on this day. Most of my family’s photo albums are full of all of us dressed up to celebrate this particular night. My parents always stress the importance of looking good during these holidays, and I am sure that it is a tradition many others keep, as well.

    Whether your family enjoys dancing until midnight, or curling up to a movie before Santa Claus comes to drop off his gifts, here are a few outfits to wear on this special day.  

     

    Leggings. Being comfortable does not mean you have to be in pajamas, Everyone knows that leggings are a girl’s best friend, and if you pair them with a holiday sweater and a few pieces of jewelry, you will have an outfit worth celebrating in!

     Leggings

     

    Flannel! Nothing says Christmas like a cozy flannel paired with jeans and a vest. They are the essential pieces for a holiday-inspired outfit, and if you are celebrating Christmas eve by having a few relatives over, then this outfit will definitely be suitable for the occasion.

     Flannel

     

    Holiday dress! Dressing up for the holidays does not necessarily mean you need to go over the top! A classy dress and a nice pair of heels will make you look amazing at your family’s holiday party. Throw on some stockings and a cardigan, if you are feeling chilly, and you will look even more suitable for the season. Add a little red lipstick for the final holiday touch!

     Holiday dress

    Party dress. If you are from a family that goes all-out for holiday parties, then you need to dress the part, also! Remember that wearing holiday colors is essential for this outfit, so find your favorite pair of red heels to match a pretty party dress and be ready to party the night away!

     Party dress

  • Your office Christmas party is a great official event to dress up for. But it's not always easy to decide on what to wear and how formal you're supposed to be. You don't want to come off as a bore to colleagues and clients, but you don't want to be over the top either. Here are some ideas to consider when choosing the perfect party look:

    If the party takes place during daytime, you can dress less formal than during an evening event. But unless you go to a sporty event with your colleagues, do dress up. Christmas is a special and most of the times elegant celebration. For a daytime event you can wear dresses and skirts in thicker fabrics like wool, with silk blouses and a beautiful blazer or cardigan. During evening events go for a chic cocktail dress.

     Christmas party

    Keep in mind that a certain kind of office dresscode still remains. Firstly, never wear clothes that are too revealing. Secondly, do not wear deep cleavages, sheer blouses and dresses and skirts that are too short or too tight. And thirdly, do not choose attire that is too casual. Sneakers, animal prints and jeans are not appropriate for an elegant office Christmas party. Instead choose darker seasonal colors and dressy fabrics, which make you look more classy and appropriate for the event. Make sure that your hair looks tidy and go for a classic but natural makeup look.

    A great option for an elegant and chic Christmas office party look is a lace dress. Lace is the go-to fabric in terms of holiday pieces. My favourite piece at the moment is the satin panel lace dress from Reiss in cherry and navy. It has a classic fit and shape and still remains modern with its stylish blend of fabrics and its cut-out detail to the back. It's crafted from bonded lace with contrast panels to the neckline and waist. Here are my styling ideas for this dress:

    Remember when picking out a first-day-of-school outfit was a stress-inducing task? Like when you were entering high school and just knew the shade of denim you wore on orientation day would impact the next four years of your life. 

    Now that you're older, wiser, and (hopefully) less self-conscious, you're probably more concerned about what to pack for your dorm rather than purchasing an entirely new back-to-school wardrobe. That said, whether you're an incoming freshman or a seasoned senior, the first day of fall classes still becomes one of those "What Should I Wear... ?!" moments.

    college students

    All first day of class outfits need to be school-appropriate and communicate that you are ready for another school year to start, but should also express some of your personal style and show that you had an amazing summer break.

    For this post, I drew inspiration from several fab summer vacation destinations, as well as a few of my favorite fictional high school/college students to create stylish looks that can be worn once you head back to campus.

     

    Not only will these outfits help you "ace" those first impressions, but they also include a lot of pieces that will work throughout autumn.

     

    Hamptons, Not Homework

     Hamptons, Not Homework

     

    Whether or not you actually vacationed in the Hamptons this summer, this look is for the girl who loves preppy East Coast style so much that she gets extra credit for carrying it into her back-to-school outfits.

    Classic wardrobe staples, such as the striped tee and cognac tote, are juxtaposed with fun and modern elements, like bright red sailor shorts and a necklace that symbolizes a half-eaten "apple for teacher." (Perhaps in protest to the start of the school year?) That preppy vibe is even carried into the aptly named "East Hampton Cottage" nail polish.

    If this is your style, you're smart enough to know you need a cardigan for chillier classrooms ("setting the curve" for the other outfits to follow) and that flats are the preferred choice over sandals. After all, flats transition better into fall and provide a ready-for-school vibe rather than a "I'm ready for a sailboat ride!" one.

     

    Queen B-each

    Queen B-each

     

    Instead of the Hamptons, I'd like to imagine that Blair Waldorf spent her summer on the West Coast. Okay, at the most, she took a short trip before heading back to her beloved NYC.

    But still, this made me wonder what a classic Queen B outfit with a bit of a boho flair would look like. Well, if you're more of a B than an S style-wise, then this California casual spin on the Constance Billard uniform will liven up your back-to-school look:

     

    Calypso Classroom

     Calypso Classroom

    Want to channel a tropical vibe with your back-to-school ensemble? This outfit will have you looking like a chic island girl, even if you don't attend the University of Hawaii. Keep with earthy colors, like this "palm leaves green" maxi dress, but upgrade the foliage accessories (no lei, sorry) with gold counterparts.

    Continue that island feel with metallic sandals, but bring the look back down-to-earth with a lightweight cardigan and a serious satchel. We all know summer can't last forever and we'll soon be bombarded with classwork, but hey, at least there's this glam look and the promise of Pumpkin Spice Lattes in the near future.
