There is nothing more important than being comfortable. But sometimes, that comfort must be replaced with something more prominent if the occasion required. By playing dress up, I don’t mean that you have to wait for a black-tie event to wear your favorite dress. There are ways to look standout without actually putting on a formal dress for a formal event. Even when you leave for work or having a girls’ night out, you can still look dress up. Below are the five outfits you can try that will make you instantly feel fabulous.
The Matching Two Piece
If you work in a place that rather has quite a strict formal dress code, or simply going to a lunch business, then this matching two pieces is perfect. It can be your regular suit, your regular skirt-blazer options, or simply two pieces of clothing that have a similar color thrown together.
Dress Up With Sequin
Embrace your inner goddess and dress yourself up with sequins. There are two options you can take. First, you can go all the way with sequins by wearing a full-length dress. Or second, you can dress it down by pairing the skirt or dress with a loose, casual sweater or even white tee. Pair the look with flat shoes or strappy high heels for a more formal occasion.
There is a way to cheat and continue to look polished even when you left your arsenals at home. That is the so-called red lipstick. A slick of a bold, red lippy is the perfect way to dress up without overdoing it. This especially will work out well if you are not sure what kind of event you are going to go and you are afraid of making an outfit mistake.
Thigh High Boots
These type of boots are part sexy and part cool. Pair them with a mini dress or a mini skirt for a sexier look. Yes, sometimes a slight show of skin is much sexier than a whole lot. The down thing about this outfit is you can only wear them when the weather is permissible to wear rather a short bottom. But even if the weather is slightly chilly, I’d say this ensemble is worth it.
One Color Plan
No, I’m not talking about a pair of suit. I’m simply talking about a top and a bottom that are fortunately having the same color. The great thing about same-color outfits are despite the type of the top and the bottom, you will always look intentionally put-together.
Bike Short Is The New Trend In Town
Emily Ratajkowski, Kylie Jenner, and influencers as far as the eye can see. Hence, they are ditching their leggings for skin-tight, leg-revealing bike shorts. Yes, you can totally do it, too.
High-waist, sculpting, and can beat the summer heat? It’s no surprise that bike shorts are taking over our Instagram feeds. For those of you still having a hard time giving in to this major fashion trend. Thus, think about it: They’re just like your go-to leggings. But, with more leg showing.
Bike shorts dominated the runways this past year with Bella Hadid strutting at Fendi’s spring/summer 2019 show. Thus, wearing bike shorts with a utilitarian top and accessories. Marine Serre kept them sporty with cool jackets and monochrome styling. Also, Acne Studios and LaQuan Smith made them appropriate for a night out. Thus, with bra and leather tops accented with edgy jewelry.
But they’re not a new trend. In the ’80s, icons Princess Diana and Madonna wore these shorts with oversized crewnecks and windbreakers to the gym. Now, fashion’s It Girls of 2019 are revamping the short and styling them with everything from blazers and chain belts.
The bike short is officially no longer just for the gym. And to prove that you can work this trend into your own wardrobe. Also, we’ve pulled three ways to style bike shorts with items you’re likely to already own. Go ahead, don’t be afraid.
Sporty, But Skips The Gym
Endorphins make you happy. But, working out is a pain. Know what else makes us just as happy? A new outfit. So, you don’t need to be heading to a new HIIT workout to enjoy the sporty casualness. Thus, the OG bike short gets this year! Swap the OG bike shorts pairing top. Also, the ’80s windbreaker, for cropped hoodies and shoulder bags. Take inspiration from Emily Ratajkowski and influencer Nadia Aboulhosn. Hence, by throwing on a cropped, long-sleeve top with your joggers, some trendy sunglasses, a small handbag. Also, skip their kicks for of-the-moment Tevas.
Leave your jean shorts at home. Hence, Vintage Levi’s will never go out of style. But, your favorite pair may become your backup option after wearing a bike shorts out on the town. Thus, Stylist Emili Sindlev and model Gizele Oliveira show how it’s done. Hence, by wearing their sleek black bike shorts with graphic tees, chain accessories, handbags, and strappy sandals. Hence, everything you normally would wear for a night out with your jean shorts. An easy switch that’s super sassy and ridiculously comfy.
Business on Top
Unexpected combinations are always the best. So, that’s why we love the chic combo of bike shorts with a blazer. Thus, use it as a jacket to layer and add volume above the waist while keeping things streamlined. Also, simple below, as shown on influencer Nnenna Echem. So, Dress things up by skipping the top underneath and wear the blazer as a shirt. Also, with a waist bag to give an hourglass shape a la Kylie Jenner. It’s a no-fuss layering piece you undoubtedly already own, perfect for days when the weather can’t make up its mind.
10 Casual Spring Outfits That Are Easy To Re-Create
I love spring. I love the crisp, perfect temperature, the flower, the greenery. But one thing I don’t like is the fluctuating temperature. Dressing up in the morning is always hard. Around this time, however, dressing can be more stressful. The transitional weather means we wear t-shirt and shorts one day, then back to sweater and jeans the next day. This makes me wonder, if only there is a formula easy enough to follow. You know, so I don’t have to think about what to wear in the morning. So, what are the casual spring staples that we should be working into our wardrobe? Well, for one thing, oversize track shorts are apparently not just for gym anymore. Then, slip skirt is back to the radar. While blazer dress is taking the spotlight as it can be a way to look refined with very minimal effort.
Paper Bag Shorts + Button Down Shirt
These two might sound like a weird combination. But trust me when I say that this look does work actually. The button-down shirt is level up the paper bag shorts so they are wearable to wear outside the gym.
Slip Skirt + Graphic Tee
As I mentioned above, a slip skirt is still very much in the trend circle. Pair it with a graphic tee, and you will look casually cool with minimum effort.
Blazer Dress + Animal Print Top
Have a business breakfast but still want to look cool? The blazer dress is a perfect option for a business-casual occasion. While the animal print top? Well, let’s just be honest. The top is cool.
Silk Skirt + Printed Blouse
This pair can be said as the more formal twist of the slip skirt and graphic tee. The printed blouse says business while the silk skirt screams fun all the way.
Plaid Minidress + Puff-Sleeve Blouse
For those of you who work at creative-based offices, this wardrobe is the perfect combination of creativity and fun. Bonus, you can go straight to a night out after office with this wardrobe.
Blazer + Jeans
This outfit is also another option of being casual-business. The combination of blazer and jeans are perfect for when the weather is rather chill. If you want to have a fun night out after office hours, wear the blazer without the inner.
Windbreaker + Trousers
Chilly weather? Well then prepare your windbreaker. What? A shirt underneath the windbreaker? Nah, it’s not necessary. For now, we will try the cool look of windbreaker being tucked into trousers.
Tie-Dye Tee + Plaid Skirt
Freshest combo of the season, tie-dye tee and plaid skirt somehow reminds me of a barbie. Finish the look with sneakers for a more sporty vibe.
Sheer Dress + Black Jeans
To be honest, I find this combo rather odd. I never once wear a sheer dress over anything. But apparently, paired with black jeans, the dress looks so much edgier.
Plaid Pants + White Tee
This combination is similar to the plaid skirt and tie-dye tee combo. The effect resulted from the outfit is also similar. A white tee is a basic wardrobe, always look good with everything.
5 Stylish And Safe Shoe Options To Wear To The Airport
The number one rule when traveling is, of course, being comfortable. But, when you are traveling by plane, there are other rules you have to consort to as well. For examples, TSA will always ask you to remove your footwear and put them in the x-ray for security reasons. No matter if you wear flip flops that are only an inch thick. And then, there is another health reason. The plane, just like any public transportation, is full of bacteria. So, be careful with any wound you might get during flying as the bacteria can cause irritation. Due to this, we have to measure the safety of our shoe options when traveling by plane. But at the same time, of course, we want to look stylish. So, what do we do? How we combine these two? Scroll on the list below to see how.
You truly can’t go wrong with wearing a pair of sneakers to the airport. First, they are very comfortable. Second, they provide good support for your feet. Third, they can protect your whole feet, which means, bye plane bacteria. You might think that sneakers can complicate the whole take-off-the-footwear. In this case, we recommend slip-on sneakers as the alternative to the one with ties.
Some people might really really want to wear sandals. In this case, wear pool slides with socks. Some years ago, this might sound yucky. But trust me, lately, celebrities have been caught wearing pool slides with socks to the airports. Even though I still believe that pool slides are not necessarily safe for traveling by plane as they don’t provide good support for your feet, but at least the socks keep you safe from the bacteria.
Low Block Heels
There is no greatest misery than walking around the airport with a pair of high heels while pushing around luggage. But sometimes, the need to look stylish beat our pain. For this, low block heels are a great compromise. For people on the shorter sides, the heels still provide an extra height which makes us look stylish. But at the same time, they are still comfortable for a long walk.
Before your flight, you might wake up and think, “hmm, I want to wear something comfortable, sturdy, but rather polished”. Well, welcome ankle boots. They have the sturdiness of sneakers, yet as stylish as heels. If you want some extra heights, opt out for boots with some block heels. Or else, just choose flat ankle boots for extra comfort.
From all of this list, loafers are probably the option I love the most. They are stylish, comfortable, and easy to slip on and off. The best thing is, loafers can be worn either with jeans, leggings, even dress.
