  4. Make Your T-Shirt Look Expensive With These Affordable Accessories

    March 10, 2020 by barbara

    I am sure many of us feel most comfortable in a t-shirt and jeans.  No matter how many new tops or dresses that I have sitting in the closet, I would still reach out to my comfortable tee and jeans. The simplicity of a great pair of jeans and a clean white T makes it one of the most versatile outfits around.  It allows you to go from a day at the mall to dinner with friends to a night of bar hopping. If you are like me and would want to always look on-trend and put together even when wearing the jeans and t-shirt combo, well, here is a simple tip. You don’t need to own expensive things or buy expensive items to look chic.  The classic t-shirt outfit can feel modern and new with just a few key accessories such as chain necklaces, neck scarves, sunglasses and red lipstick.

    1.  Chain necklaces

    Oversize chain necklaces were the rage during Fall 2019 and continue to be a major spring 2020 trend.  They are one of those accessories that always look expensive eventhough the price tag is not.  Layering a stack of gold chains around your neck will instantly make whatever you’re pairing them with feel stylish and luxe, whether that’s jeans and a tee or a dress and heels.

    3.  Shoulder Bags

    The little baguette shoulder bag trend started to make a comeback late last year and I don’t mind it one bit. There is nothing like a little bag tucked under your arm, making your entire outfit feel a bit more polished.

    So if you are like me who has like a closet filled with jeans, then maybe you understand my problem. A big part of wearing denim the right way is knowing which shoes to pair with them.  There are so many different types of denim style like mom jeans, crop, flared, straight or boot cut.  I managed to find some effortlessly cool style inspiration on the best shoes to wear.

    Mom jeans are jeans that are high-waisted and a little loose on the thigh area.  Just put on a pair of stilettos to add instant polish.  It’s an easy way to take your denim outfit from day to night, or even to the office.  Pair it with sneakers for a perfect off-duty denim look.

  7. Various Vest Options

    February 12, 2020 by barbara

    When looking for a unique style for a special night out, look no further than a nice vest. A vest can be worn over almost any style shirt and can add a different way to layer clothing in colder climates. Here are some different styles you can choose from when wearing a vest.

    Suit Vest

    If you are wearing a suit or tuxedo, putting on a matching vest can add some high style to your outfit. If you are not a fan of suit jackets, you could only wear a suit vest and still look classy. These styles come in a variety of colors and patterns. They offer you the chance for a different look the next time you are out in town.

    Holster Vest

    Many people look for a way to conceal carry their handgun. A safe and effective way is by using a concealment vest. It can be worn over your clothes but remains secure enough to conceal your weapon. With this style, you want it to be a bit loose so the outline of the gun can’t be seen while wearing it. The vest may have a pocket on either side to hold the weapon which makes it easily accessible if you need to use it. This is one of the least bulky ways to carry compared to other style holsters.

    Climate Vest

    Using a vest during the winter months is popular because of how warm they can keep you. Many are made from materials such as wool and down feathers. This can keep the core of your body warm, helping you stay comfortable on cold winter nights.

    Having different outwear to choose from can give you a variety for your next social event. Wearing a nice vest may be an opportunity to change up the normal attire you wear on a daily basis.

It also boasts a rich history, including selling $400,000 of furs to John Lennon and Yoko Ono on Christmas Eve in the late 1970s. Bergdorf Goodman is a must-see to experience New York luxury.

  10. The Best Spring Trend For 2020

    January 30, 2020 by barbara

    Though we still in our thick jackets and sweaters, that does not stop us from checking out the emerging Spring trend for 2020.  Scroll  and down to see the Spring staples that are going to be big in a few more months.

    Chain Necklace

    The chain necklace is an easy way to add a little glamour to a casual look.  It really adds texture to a look especially when you have a plain top like a white tee.

    Ripped Jeans

    Ripped jeans are perfect for spring. They add a little casual and unexpected edge to a look especially when paired with a more sophisticated and elegant top or a  kitten heel.

    Puffed Sleeves

    We love dramatic sleeves.  It is all about the drama and excess. If you like puffy sleeves but do not want to look over-dramatic, you can style it to look chic and toned down with denim. It’s all about balance.

    Flared Jeans

    Flared jeans are going to have a major moment this spring. Think 70s with a slight flare and paired with a tennis shoe and a tucked-in tee.
