5 TIPS TO KEEP YOUR FASHION GAME ON POINT | Fasst & Fabulouss

Do you ever browse Pinterest or your favorite bloggers Instagram and wonder why the simple pair of jeans and t-shirt look so much better when they wear it? It happens to me all the time! The secret to  having a fab outfit are styling tricks that can elevate even the simplest of outfits. So, when you put on that t-shirt you’ve been so excited about and the outfit doesn’t meet your expectations, or you throw on a not so exciting outfit that’s in need of some accessories, try these easy styling ideas to keep your style on point!

Try A Half Tuck

I’m a sucker for a good half-tuck. Whether I’m wearing a simple sweater or plain tee, I love how tucking just the front of the shirt into my jeans makes the outfit that much cooler. That old half tuck trick from a couple years back? It still applies today!

Add A Hat

You know when you pass a girl on the street and she just looks super cool and stylish? I bet she’s wearing a hat. Seriously, there’s something about throwing on a hat that just makes my outfit, even the simple ones, so stylish.

Roll Your Sleeves

If you’re wearing a button-down, a long-sleeve tee, a chunky sweater, or even a leather jacket, try rolling up the sleeves. It’s amazing how something that subtle can change the whole vibe of the outfit and make it feel complete.

Layer With Stripes

Layers are great for giving an outfit more depth. But sometimes throwing on a cardigan or a jacket isn’t ideal. Try adding a striped tee under your top, letting it peek out at the bottom and at the sleeves. The extra layer and classic print will give your simple outfit that boot it needs.

Cuff Your Pants

As you know form this infamous post, I pretty much always roll my jeans (my skinny jeans & boyfriend jeans). I’ll try a quick cuff or a couple small rolls, and I just love how it adds a stylish touch to any look. Note: This tip isn’t limited to jeans only — try it on your chinos too!

FABULOUSS STYLE TRENDS

The Fabulouss Trend for this week are stripes and bright colors that POP! I love the mustard colored pants with the contrast of the stripes. Whenever I get myself ready for the work day, I try to put together pieces that will stand out, make me feel confident and allows me to show my sense of style. For some, this outfit is taking a risk, but for me, it’s my style!

WHITE CROCHETED SKIRT STYLE

Whenever I feel like I’m in a wardrobe slump my go-to is Pinterest. Whether it be for outfit inspiration, gift inspiration, or recipes Pinterest has got anyone covered! Most recently, Pinterest’s new update includes being able to purchase your favorite clothing items right off the site! How cool, right? If you’re familiar with the older Pinterest you know how much of a hassle it was, after a long quest to find the item that you were coveting, to find out that it was a broken link. They’ve fixed all of that now!

The featured item is this crocheted white pencil skirt. I love this skirt. I originally purchased this skirt with a similar crop top. Being the Kardashian fanatic that I am, I wanted a similar outfit to what Kim wore to her 33rd birthday back in 2013. After a long and tedious Google search I found a similar outfit on eBay! I was a little apprehensive at first because I wasn’t sure how the quality would be for $29.99, but that was a risk I was willing to take.

After debuting the two-piece at an All-White birthday party a couple weeks ago, I wanted to figure out ways wear the top and skirt as separates. So I took to Pinterest. My decision to pair it with a J.Crew Linen Classic Tee was based on the fact that it was 94 degrees yesterday and I didn’t want anything too stuffy like this J.Crew chambray shirt, which would also pair perfectly with this pencil skirt for work. I wanted a simple, yet sophisticated look to wear to church and this was the result. In addition, I believe that the mix of colors provides a unique and unexpected look for the simple fact that it’s not matchy-matchy. To tie it all together I chose this Avon egg-shell handbag (which has been discontinued but they have plenty other cute handbags to go around); to which I love the contrast between the hand-bag and the stark white skirt.

Now, on to the the necklace. It is unlike anything that I own in my jewelry collection. Between the pink, ribbon closure and the price on H&M, I was sold. The ribbon closure gives way to a more feminine look and the color is bold but subtle. The nude pumps are a staple in anyone’s closet and you can find a pair of nude pumps practically anywhere. Checkout Nordstrom, Zappos, Steve Madden, or DSW! I don’t remember where I got these pumps from (I’ve worn them so much that the brand name inside the shoe has worn out. If I remember correctly, my mom gifted them to me after not particularly being privy to them. Win for me!

No outfit is complete without the glam side of things! I used my Urban Decay Primer Potion in Original for long-lasting eyeshadow. For a color base, I used the M.A.C. Pro Longwear Pain Pot in Indianwood. For eyeshadow I used my Naked 2 Palette in it I used Half Baked (entire lid), Busted (crease), and Blackout (outter V of lid to darken it up a bit).

For my face, I used the NEW Make Up Forever Ultra HD Foundation in 180 = 530 – Brown (they did some reformulation which means new color numbers), L’Oreal’s True Match Concealer in Medium/Deep-Cool – C6-7-8 to brighten under my eyes. I finished the makeup look off with Avon’s setting spray, Volum’ Express The Falsies Washable Mascara in Blackest Black on the lower lashes and Ardell Lashes (edgy). My sunnies and turquoise stud earrings are from H&M.
