Borrowed From The Boys

A good borrowed from the boys look is one of my favorite ways to put an outfit together. I have gone through the 4 Menswear Pieces For A Girl’s Closet and now let’s talk more about how to put it all together!

The key thing to keep in mind is creating juxtaposition or contrast in your outfit. The menswear piece can be fitted or oversized to your liking, just remember to pair it with feminine details. I choose my Chanel mini for both of these looks because it has such a beautiful, feminine feel.

Your shoe choice should also fall into the stiletto heel category unless you’re going for a more sporty look such as here.

A bold red lip for date-night is always a good idea, especially when wearing menswear.

The colors that are paired with a suit also will create contrast. In this post, the maroon velvet is gorgeous with the pinstripe suit!

In one of the pictures below, I changed out the heels for a block heel gold menswear Gucci, which shoe do you like better? Let me know in the comments below!

5 Ways To Stand Out In Your LBD

5 Ways To Stand Out In Your LBD 1365 2048 Tammy Caciola

Having an LBD in your closet is a must-have. It’s your fall back to looking chic and put together at a moments notice, no shopping required! Whether you’re headed out for drinks with the girls or a black-tie gala your dress can be styled perfectly for either occasion. However, you don’t want to blend in with the many other black dresses in the same room at your event. Here are some easy style tips on how to make yours stand out while still keeping it classic and chic.

The Dress

First, you want the right LBD. Not to say you can only have one! You want to look for classic, not trendy, lines in the dress. Simple but significant details are however a bonus! Such as beautiful buttons or the sheer ruched neckline on the dress I’m wearing. I was drawn to this dress immediately when I saw it on the Maggy London site!

Keep the hemline a little longer, or a full skirt, if want above the knee. Doing this will keep you from, having a night out clubbing look. I loved the sheer cap sleeves on this dress because I’m always cold inside when the a/c is blasting! Isn’t it funny that guys get to wear coats to get dressed up and women get to expose skin!

The other thing to look for the fabric. Spend a little more to get quality fabric the will hold up through the years of use and dry cleaning.

Once you have the perfect LBD, it’s all in the details to make you stand out from the crowd!

 

Styling Tips

  1. Add interest to your timeless black dress with your accessories. A bold clutch, statement earrings or vibrantly colored stiletto heels with take you to a whole new level of chicness.
  2. Make-up and nail color choice can also be a huge factor when styling your look. Adding a red lip or bold eyeliner will give your face color while choosing the right nail polish will also add to the overall feel of your outfit.
  3. Mixing the fabric and accessory textures is also a perfect way to keep the eye interested! My dress is so much more interesting with the sheer details. Think of adding fur, leather, crocodile in your bag, coat or shoes.
  4. Don’t be afraid to belt it! This will add definition to your waist and be a little unexpected. It breaks up the long simple silhouette and adds a little edge to your look!
  5. Choosing the dress is important but in my opinion it the shoes that will make everyone look twice! My choice is usually a classic all-black look. However, these white stiletto heels have me thinking twice! Seriously good! If they are in your price range, don’t think twice they will sell quickly!  Look for either a sexy, classic heel or one with details such as what I’m wearing. Can you believe mine are only $34.99 and still in stock!

Tips To Rock A Blazer All Summer Long

Tips To Rock A Blazer All Summer Long 2048 1365 Tammy Caciola

Summer Blazers

From cut-off shorts to maxi dresses and jeans, a blazer will elevate just about any outfit. You can incorporate this outfit-maker year around using the tips I have below.



Show more skin

Pushing up the sleeves not only gives you a cool girl look, but it also helps with the heat of summer.  In addition, choosing a light sleeveless top to wear under is key. I have on long white denim, but a blazer over cut-off shorts is a favorite look of mine! The contrast between structured and casual pieces is perfect.

Take It Off

If you’re running around in the 100-degree heat and not in the A/C, take it off! You can carry it and still get the impact of having a chic layer.



Wear As A Cape

Wearing as a jacket over your shoulders looks so chic don’t you think? This is my favorite way to wear outerwear. BONUS…wearing a blazer like this, also helps with the heat.



Fabrics

Choosing the right material such as linen or a lightweight natural fabric will also give you relief during the summer.


You can see of my shoppable blazer pick’s throughout this post. Also check out The RealReal (I’ve scored Hermes for $95.00 and Dolce & Gabbana for & $75.00, Seriously!) Shopbob and Revolve for more choices!

If you haven’t read my post about buying designer pieces for less you be sure to check that!

How To Style A Date-Night Outfit in 5 Minutes

How To Style A Date-Night Outfit in 5 Minutes 1365 2048 Tammy Caciola

Date-Night Outfit

With the busy lives we all lead, sometimes it’s hard to fit in the time it takes to put the perfect date-night look together. Especially after rushing around for kids sports games, practices, and other endless obligations. None the less, with the following tips you’ll be able to be quickly be dressed and ready in 5 minutes or less!

First,  you need to have these pieces in your closet already. Once you have these wardrobe staples, putting an outfit together will be much easier.

Neutral Colors

Silk camisole tops and slip dresses are sexy and easy for a date-night outfit! Just something about wearing lingerie out in public right?! If it’s a chilly night, add a knit cardigan layered over. The contrast of fabrics will only add to the chic, sexy feel.

Choose neutral colors for easy outfit formulas. For example, if you have a black, white, or champagne top piece, it will pair well with either black, white, or champagne on the bottom. Monochrome outfits work well here also, such as all black. You cannot go wrong with any combination of neutrals really.

You could also wear any of those neutral colors with blue denim for a more casual feel.



Slip Dress

A one-and-done slip dress is also a perfect choice. Look to silk fabrics for a pretty sheen to give you a special look for the night.

The cuts should be close to your body, not boxy. Tucking in a cami as I have done here will give you a waist and elongate your legs. I’m always looking for any trick that will help to make my legs look longer!

Having a classic pump is a must in everyone’s closet. If you do not have a pair or two yet, now is the time to change that! Again look to the neutral colors for your quick outfit selections. A pointed toe pump will elongate your leg and make you feel sexy.

I think a wedge heel is more suited for a girls/family night. However, comfort is also needed so that we enjoy ourselves. I have found this budget-friendly brand to be the most comfortable heel I own.

Remember the shoe doesn’t need to be a high heel. I look for either a classic pump or minimal strappy sandals with a lower heel.
