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!

Styling One Dress Four Ways For The Holidays

Styling One Dress Four Ways For The Holidays 1365 2048 Tammy Caciola

This holiday season, do yourself a favor and buy the perfect little black dress that will take you to multiple events no matter what the dress code is. Think of this dress as your base canvas. Then build your outfit over the dress depending on the occasion. The styling possibilities are endless! Below I’m breaking down four styling options for you, brunch, drinks out, movie day and Thanksgiving dinner. I also have written about 5 Ways To Stand Out In Your LBD here!

Choosing Your Little Black Dress

When you’re looking for a perfect LBD, it’s all about the fabric and cut. The dress that I’m wearing in this post has fabric you can simply roll up, put in your suitcase and unpack it, unwrinkled when you get there. I love a low maintenance dress for holiday travel that always looks great!

This cut you want to be somewhat form-fitting, but not tight. Look for a length just above or below the knee and clean, classic lines. You want this base layer to translate from an office party to drinks out flawlessly. Look for a dress that makes you feel beautiful and comfortable when you wear it.

Don’t be afraid to spend more than you normally would on a dress to get quality fabric and perfect cut!

Keep scrolling to read more about the chic dress I’m wearing at the end of this post.

Brunch

Brunch is always something I look forward to, but this could also be a casual Thanksgiving dinner look. I wore a cozy cropped jacket over and scrunched boots in the same nude tone. My hair is effortlessly pulled back into an easy ponytail with a ribbon. The bag I’m carrying has the handle wrapped with a skinny scarf also in the blush color pallet.

Drinks-Out

This look is a trendy night out look I love. If you do not have a leopard jacket yet, you need one! I like to stock up on classic animal prints when they are trending. Leopard will ALWAYS be in style!

I choose a fun studded boot here for comfort. However,  knee-high or OTK boots with a heel would look stunning as well. They would also keep you warmer if it were cold outside.  A clutch is more night-time friendly to be. The black leather and simple lines with gold bar tend to tone down the jacket and boots here.

Movie Day

A movie day is always a part of my families holidays. Nothing better than seeing the new Hollywood blockbuster out on a lazy day!

Layer denim or other casual fabrics such as cozy plaid flannels over your dress. Then add sneakers with a crossbody, and you’re ready to go.

Thanksgiving Dinner

This look has all the bling, so it’s meant for a fancy dinner out. Let your dress shine with dressy heels, bold jewelry, and a lux coat. Add some big sunnies for more drama. A red lip would look gorgeous as well!
