Date Night Inspiration: Jessica Alba’s Flirty Floral Look post image

A few months ago I came across a picture of Jessica Alba in a gorgeous look on her way to Ralph Lauren’s S/S 14 show at NYFW.  Why I loved it?  Because she incorporated warm weather flowing pastels with her cold weather chunky dark neutrals to create a refreshing take on fall dressing.  This instantly inspired, what I consider to be, the perfect winter date night look.

Jessica’s look will set you back big bucks, but there are easy ways to achieve her look on any budget.  Some tips for perfectly achieving her look include keeping the sweater cropped.  This will keep the sweater from overpowering the skirt and will make your overall look appear slim and clean.  Another tip is to keep the skirt airy by choosing a light, flowing fabric.  Heavier textures will, you guessed it, make the overall look feel heavy so stick to silks and chiffons.

Another skirt tip is to keep the length to a midi or slightly higher.  A full on maxi will also create a heavy illusion but it also really covers you up – it is date night so keep it fun and flirty (and feel free to rock a mini if you’re ready to brave the cold)!  Lastly, if you live in a place where strappy sandals aren’t a fall/winter option, don’t be afraid to try a pointy-toe pump or a classic ankle bootie.  Either shoe option would work great with this look.

How to Layer Without Looking Larger post image

The layered look is always in style and is especially essential during the fall when the temperatures fluctuate constantly, and in the winter, when it’s freezing outside and sweltering indoors.

Layering can also help you get more mileage out of the items already hanging in your closet. You’d be amazed at how many new outfits you can come up with just by playing around and doing some mixing and matching with your old standbys.

This trend requires you to proceed with caution, because if you layer blindly, you can run the risk of looking sloppy and frumpy.

But fear not, I’ve got you covered with tips to help you make the layered look work.

A Guy’s Take on Female Fashion: Street Chic Edition post image

Sabrina sent me over some pics to review and give my straight guy opinion on “Street Chic Fashion.”

Street chic fashion, as I understand it, is when a girl spends tons of time and money on trying to look like she just threw something on without giving it any thought. Guys have their own version of this when we spend half an hour in front of a mirror trying to make our hair look like we have “bed head”.  Life is funny.

I’ve said it before: I am not a fashion writer and I have no desire to be. But I can look at a picture and give you my male opinion on it, and that’s just what I’m about to do…
