How to Rock the Right Fit

Jeans are the ultimate wardrobe staple so it’s so important to find the fit that’s right for you. For me, I’ll always be a die-hard skinny jeans girl. I tend to go for a low-rise pair with a little bit of stretch that are super tapered at the ankle. You can make this look work no matter what your body type. Here’s How:

Tall: You lucky ladies with mile-long legs can rock knee-high boots or cuff your jeans while still keeping your proportions. For summer, try cuffed jeans with an edgy gladiator sandal.

Petite/Short: Being a petite girl myself, I love to pair my jeans with a sky high pump. All you need is a sexy blouse and a cool clutch and you’re ready for a night out on the town.

Curvy: My best piece of advice for curvy ladies is look for pieces that accentuate your curves. A top with a cinched waist creates a beautiful silhouette to show off your figure.

Thin: To add a bit of feminine flair to a boyish figure, try embellishments! Shine, sequins, you can do it all.

How to Rock Your Personal Style: It’s In the Jeans!

I consider myself a little bit stylephrenic— I have multiple fashion personalities! One day I can go for a boho look, the next day it’s rocker chic and that night I might dress all-out glam…which is why I had such a blast checking out the new Rock & Republic line for Kohl’s! The collection has tons of different pieces for whatever fashion you’re craving.

I had the privilege of spending the day at a super fun photoshoot with some chic style bloggers where we got to try on looks that suited our personal style. Check out my video where I talk about my fave ensemble from the day!

 

 

While the first thing that comes to mind when you think Rock & Republic is jeans, this mint green dress was one of my faves from the runway, so I was so excited that Glam.com‘s Fashion Director Nola styled me in it. It’s a trendy spring shade and in the midi length that was all over the runways. My favorite part about it though is how easy it is to transition from day to night: wear it with a blazer to the office and glam it up with some sparkly accessories for cocktails.

But of course I love the look of a great-fitting pair of jeans paired with a laid-back and loose top and sexy heels (the pink pair is by Lauren Conrad), too! This look is great for a night out with girlfriends or for a weekend brunch. Comfy and chic!

How would you describe your personal style?

How To Rock Colored Denim– Big for Spring

One trend that is going to continue to be huge for spring is colored denim. It’s a great and updated look to add some bright shades into your wardrobe so why not do it with denim? My favorite one to sport is the cobalt blue! Plus, it’s so easy to wear–just keep the rest of your outfit simple. Think a black tee, motorcycle boots and a scarf for a rocker chic look, or prep it up with ballet flats and a sweet cardi. For a retro throwback I love the Hamburg Skinny Crop Jeans. They come in White and Cherry Bomb and hit at just the right spot on your leg.

It’s best to splurge on staples and save on trends, so these Rock & Republic jeans are priced just right. They can also take you into next season, too: wear them now underneath a leather jacket and when the weather warms up, a loose racerback tank and chic sandals will be all you need.

Reporting in from the Kohl’s Rock and Republic Show

Fashion Week is in full swing–there are so many fab events and shows to attend! One of the best so far this season was the Kohl’s Rock and Republic show. I loved so many of the edgy chic styles and was able to catch up with some of the hottest celebs there (Ashlee Simpson told me that she uses La Mer moisturizer every day…no wonder her skin looks so luminous)! Spotted in the front row was Molly Sims sporting the cutest baby bump, hottie Chace Crawford, Ed Westwick, Penn Badgley, Ashlee Simpson, Tinsley Mortimer and Kelly Bensimon among others. My favorite looks included a perfect short and fitted LBD, an off the shoulder striped micro mini dress styled with layered necklaces and stacked bangles, the cutest denim shorts paired with wearable tees, cropped jeans in colors and denim and some great downtown looks for men. I also really loved the ruched off the shoulder dress designed in a fresh, light blueish-green color–perfect to rock at a cocktail party. I am so excited that these looks are available right now— no waiting until Fall necessary. What do you think of them? Let me know below!

My Favorite Looks from the Kohl’s Rock & Republic Show at New York Fashion Week

I see so many looks I love during New York Fashion Week but it’s not often that I get the chance to wear any of them right away. That’s why I have to share with you some of my favorite looks from the Kohl’s Rock and Republic show last week… the styles are available in stores now as of today! You can also shop for them online. From casual jeans and tees to edgy rocker chic dresses, this line really had something for everyone. Here are some of my favorite looks:

Edgy Tank I love to wear tank tops year round, especially pairing them with cool cardigan sweaters or cropped jackets. This one is a perfect addition to any rocker wardrobe…the cross and stud embellishments are super chic. It works well with all types of jeans whether colored or denim, skinny or flare!

Colored Jeans Rock & Republic is of course known for a great pair of jeans, but why stick to just denim? I think this bright red is a new wardrobe staple – perfect for the girl who wants to stand out!

Little Striped Dress There were so many edgy and cute pieces in this collection. One of my faves is this mini striped off the shoulder dress. I love the shimmery stripes and it’s a perfect day to night look. Wear with fun tights and boots with a cropped biker jacket to finish off the look.

I loved attending the fashion show and even spotted some celebs like mom-to-be Molly Sims, the very sexy Chace Crawford, Ed Westwick, Penn Badgely, Tinsley Mortimer, Ashlee Simpson and Kelly Bensimon.
