5 Off The Shoulder Tops.

Ok so finding actual off the shoulder tops can be damn near impossible. In fact many off the shoulder tops you see people wearing are not off the shoulder tops at all, they are just modified  t-shirts a size or two too big. With that said here are 5 shirts that  can easily be made into an off the shoulder top if you buy it a size bigger.  The key is to look for a wide neck line that will still look decent when it’s modified. Be sure the shirt is big enough to achieve this look you do not want it to be tight at all or else you will deal with pulling in odd places. This is trial all trial and error, Good Luck!!!

Zipper Ankle Jeans.

Zipper ankle jeans are so freakin 80’s-early 90’s. I remember my first pair like it was yesterday. Mine were Guess and I think they were in some awful color like teal or something in that ballpark. Since zipper ankle jeans made their comeback like 3 years ago I have seemed to have hopped back on the bandwagon. So much for the saying ‘If you were old enough to wear the trend the first time around, pass it by when it comes back.’

Check out these 5 Zipper Ankle jeans, they are great for the spring and summer and are the perfect jeans to show off your fly ass shoes. ROCK EM.

Let Me Tell You About A Skirt, Her Name Is Maxi.

Maxis are back in FULL FORCE this spring and summer. They are truly meaning business with these long hems this year, everything is long from the skirts to the jeans. I like both long and short skirts and I love long, wide jeans so I am embracing this seasons longness with open arms. Since we know long will be back in again next year or at latest2 years from now (maxis have actually never left the racks since like ’05 if you want to get technical about it) it is wise to invest in a quality maxi skirt and dress. In a color of your hearts desire, since you are the one who has to wear it. As a stylist I try to push people to try new colors but at the end of the day, if you are uncomfortable, it will show. So if you like black then wear black, I know I do and besides is there a better color to have a classic piece in? I don’t think so.

The maxi skirt is like a best friend comforting, forgiving and sees no faults. Anyone can rock a maxi skirt, anyone. Just watch the cut and the fabric, if you buy a cheap maxi just for the season, buy a size up. Cheap material clings and is totally unforgiving even on the slimmest of people. If you are carrying some weight around the thighs and hips, look for a cut that  ‘flares’ out from the waist as it falls not just clings straight down. As for rocking the maxi, the possibilities are ENDLESS. I love the look of a white tank tucked into a maxi worn low on the hips, with a fitted jean jacket, sexy flat sandals and a big, killer bag. Add a nice long necklace and some bangles, top with killer shades. Instantly fresh weekend outfit. Or dress it up with heels or heeled boots, wear the skirt up a bit higher around your waist, tuck a black tank into the skirt, separate with a killer belt and throw on a vegan leather vest or jacket. Add chunky bracelets and a fab necklace.

The One Type Of Jean That Flatters ALL.

Let me just make this simple and to the point. There is ONE type of jean that flatters most everyone. That is the trouser cut jean. Sits comfortable up top and has the perfect flare at the bottom. They can be worn with anything and styled anyway. For many years I only wore this cut jean because it is so flattering I just stuck with what worked. Bought different washes of the same cut and was good to go. This style jean is best worn with a heel of some type since the legs tend to be cut longer and more full on the bottom. Adding a heel to a pair of jeans with this cut will make your legs look super long and lean. If you are not a heel person, try some platforms or hem the jeans up and make them into sandal jeans. Anyway you slice it the trouser cut jean is just the perfect cut jean.
