Teen Spirit

She's Wearing

Wayfarer Sunglasses: Ray Bans (Similar Here)
Glam grunge is back ladies! Let’s throw it back with some flannels, beanies, leather jackets and leggings all together to create one outfit, yes I said one outfit!  For this spring another huge trend is layering vintage clothing with a sophisticated twist. Can you just feel that “Teen Spirit” running through your veins?
In my opinion, the 1990’s bold and dangerous grunge fashion trend is kind of hard to pull off. The great thing about this trend is you don’t have to go shopping for a new outfit; you can pull things out from your own closet. The key is to layer clothing such as loose sweaters and tops, ripped jeans, cropped tops and mix patterns and prints.
Some more must haves for this look are flannels, a band or graphic t-shirt, and definitely leggings. Stick with darker colors and leather (leather jacket, leggings, skirts, boots…etc!) Be sure to make your fashion effort look effortless and layer, layer, layer!

Sporty Spice

Who would’ve known Mel C AKA Sporty Spice knew that the sporty trend was cool all along. I must say I was a big fan of the Spice Girls growing up but Sporty Spice was not my favorite because I didn’t like her outfits. My opinion has changed completely after seeing some amazing pieces on the runways for this Spring.
She’s Wearing
Varsity Tee-Shirt: Forever 21 (Here)
Grey Sweat Shorts: H&M (Similar Here)
Two-Tone Heels: Go Jane (Similar Here)
Statement Necklace: Forever 21 (similar Here)
Knuckle Rings: H&M (Here)
I am really excited that the “sporty chic” trend is going to be huge this Spring because it gives me a chance to step outside of my comfort zone. Looking for some athletic inspiration, I looked through some of my blogger crushes’ instagrams and websites. I noticed that in order to pull this look off you must dress it up.
A few pointers I have for channeling your sporty outfits is to first find an affordable and edgy top with number patches. Make sure that either the top you decide to wear  is fitted and the bottoms are loose or vice versa.  Mix feminine with tomboy by adding a statement necklace, earrings, or rings. I would’ve even added a leather baseball cap if I was going to be out in the sun. Have fun with it! I’m going to challenge myself this Spring to see how many different ways I can wear this shirt, keep a look out for that.

Night Life

 He’s Wearing
Navy Slim Suit-: H&M
Spread Collar Shirt: H&M
Bow Tie: H&M
Pocket Square: Atlas & Mason
Wingtips: Aldo
Is the navy blue suit the new black suit? Not really but it does look extremely good and is less formal. I got my suit and tie on for this event that took place at the “W “Hotel in Los Angeles hosted by Annex Magazine. I really enjoy simple outfits and  keeping it minimal. As you can tell by this ensemble, understated sometimes makes more of an impact.
A fitted suit can always make a man feel more confident. To all gentlemen, get your clothing tailored! If you can’t find the right fit, invest in a good tailored suit because it will pay off in the long run. Luckily for me this slim suit from H&M was fitted and I didn’t have to go through all the trouble to get it tailored.

I’m all about the modern look and clothing that fit my body type. With this look I went with blue scheme mixing a dark blue suit with a light blue pinstripe button down. Because men can and in my opinion should  accessories, I decided to add a dark blue knit bowtie and a gifted Atlas & Mason  pocket square. When you look good you definitely feel good. The best part about transitioning seasons is getting to wear more dressy attire. Make sure to let us know which outfits you like more, the casual or dressy.

Bloodstained Lips

 She’s Wearing
Faux Leather Vest: Target (Similar Here)
Red Lips Graphic Tee Shirt: G Stage (Similar Here)
Black Leggings: Forever 21 (Similar Here)
Red Suede Transparent Heels: Lola Shoetique (Similar Here)
Silver Knuckle Rings: H&M (Here)
Silver Chain Necklace: Cotton On (Similar Here)

I’ve recently started seeing more and more bloggers rock graphic tees and it inspired me to try it out. I remember when I was in high school I would wear band tee shirts and graphic tees dressed up and I would get weird looks by all the “cool kids“. This really exited me because I got to kick it old school!
 I suggest getting a little creative when wearing a graphic tee. Dress it up with some jeans and throw a statement necklace on for a fashion-forward look. I would definitely wear heels if your going out at night for a classy look. Other items you can wear are a skirt, a bright blazer, or a vest (like I did). Avoid wearing anything that looks worn out.

Now, lets talk accessories. Above the knuckle rings are my current obsession. I think they add spice to a simple outfit, especially when you stack them. The best part about these rings is you can now purchase them online at H&M since this week they announced they are now open for online business. I provided the link above!!!!! I hope you all enjoyed my take on how to wear a graphic tee and stay tuned for more!

He’s Wearing
Panama Hat: Target
Wayfarer Sunglasses: Ray Bans
Button up: H&M
Distressed Jeans: H&M
Loafers: Aldo
This Outfit was heavily influenced by the “Roaring Twenties“. The fashion of that time is one of my favorites because it reminds me of Al Capone. I feel he was one of the best dressed people that ever lived because he was very classy.
Thanks to GQ Magazine, I was able to find a panama hat at Target for a great price . Panama hats are classier but if you are not comfortable wearing this type of hat, you can always wear a fedora. I threw it on with a black button up and some really cool distressed jeans (both from H&M) for a laid back look.
    These leopard print loafers from Aldo are probably my favorite shoes for the Summer. I am a loafer junkie because loafers could be dressed up with a suit or dressed down with jeans. I like to have one thing that stands out in my outfits and these loafers definitely do the job.

 We can’t believe summer is coming to an end but that doesn’t mean I can’t transition pieces from my summer wardrobe into next season. Make sure to stay tuned as I conclude my summer looks.
