One Jacket, Two Ways

  Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all have more exciting plans than I do. Recently, my Friday nights have consisted of Chinese takeout and multiple hours of Netflix screening. What can I say, endless episodes of Orange is the New Black have me hooked. Since I haven’t done one of these in awhile, I thought it was about time I started it back up. For this “One Item, Two Ways” post, I decided to use a 3.1 Phillip Lim jacket which I think goes perfectly with almost anything in ones closet. I chose to do a West Coast, East Thing since I’m a fan of both styles. Preferably, I feel that the West Coast has a more casual feel to it which is exactly how I styled it. Living in the East Coast, I’ve noticed one’s idea of “casual” is a bit more sophisticated. Either way, I love the outcome of both and would totally wear either one. Advertisements

Three Ways to Wear Turtlenecks

When I was young, I used to hate turtlenecks. The suffocating sensation I’d get while wearing them always bothered me, and I always thought I looked incredibly odd. But between childhood and now, something evidently changed. Now, I seem to gravitate towards the sweater and have a rather large collection. But not everyone shares my love for the turtleneck. In fact; many actually hate it and I don’t blame them. Turtlenecks can be rather tricky to wear. Too tight and they make you appear as if you’re choking. Too loose and the can make you look dumpy. But when worn right way, the turtleneck can actually be really chic. Remember Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face? Now that fall is well on it’s on its way, sweaters are popping up everywhere. From cable-knits to oversized; sweaters are a complete must for this season and why not try your luck with a turtleneck? For some inspiration on how to style your turtleneck, just check out the three outfits I’ve put together below!   FROM LEFT: Berry Cashmere …

Sophistication Meets Ease

As the lights go down and the music begins to play at the Tommy Hilfiger 2013 fall show, models begin waltzing down the catwalk, dressed head to toe in cozy yet sophisticated ensembles. Cable knits paired with tartan trousers and thigh high boots are among the many looks that transcended down the runway. Hilfiger, who is no stranger to the “American Pastoral” aesthetic, managed to capture the fall season into a collection that is both elegant and secure. But it wasn’t only Hilfiger who succeeded in accomplishing such an effortless look. Over at the 3.1 Phillip Lim 2013 fall show, models donned a similar yet different look as they strode down the runway in army-green coats paired with chunky, turtleneck knits and a sufficient amount of leather. It would appear that a trend is beginning to arise on the horizon and it’s one that almost every woman could manage to wrap their heads around. It is a look that I would describe as Rustic American meets Sophisticated Ease. Mass amounts of plaid, paired with chunky, …
