Animal Magic

The new year is always full of fresh starts, promises, and new fashion trends! Although, sometimes a trend will stay around longer than a year, and that is most certainly the case with  Leopard print. Everybody had a major leopard mood last year, and you can expect it that mood to stay around for 2019.

However, this year not only will the classic black-and-tan colors be hot.  You can expect this wild print will show up in vibrant colors such as red and purple.

Leopard print is a classic print and NOT trendy, although it will be “trending” big again. If you choose a colored fabric for this pattern, that will be a trendy piece.


My Leopard Dress

This fun leopard print dress has flirty ruffles along the bottom and pleated details at the neckline. This dress will easily transition from winter to summer by styling it with different accessories. Here, I have belted it with my go-to Gucci belt to give my waist more definition. Adding the red clutch adds a pop of color and interest to the outfit.

I’m a bit obsessed with the scrunch boot style lately, and these boots are just gorgeous! They pair perfectly with denim as well, and I love the wooden heel detail!

How To Wear Denim On New Year’s Eve

Wearing Denim On New Year’s Eve Night

New Year’s Eve is the type of holiday where anything goes as far as sparkle and glam for your outfit. However, that doesn’t mean you need to wear a fancy dress. Rethink your ensemble by wearing comfy denim jeans instead. Save the self-tanner and shaving your legs is optional… You can put together a chic, elevated look with the 4 tips below.

  1. Your jeans will be very understated. I mean you can also wear them to a football game. This means everything else needs to have a wow factor. Definitely look for an over the top sequin blouse, beautiful heels, and clutch.
  2. Keep the lines fun but tailored. Don’t choose denim that is overly distressed or has holes in the knees. Usually, the best fit for denim at night is skinny fit with a dark wash. I love these Levi’s I have on because they have a cool vintage feel but also fit amazing! And.. they come in a billion colors.
  3. Choose a clutch over a shoulder or crossbody bag. It just says “night out” more.
  4. The heels should be as high as you can comfortably wear all night. That might be a kitten heel or a 4″ heel, but definitely some type of heel to elevate your look.
  5. Add a luxe belt if you are tucking in your blouse.

I hope this will help open up some fun and chic options for you on New Year’s Eve!

Split Hem Denim

Truth be told, I’ve never been a fan of split hem denim. However, when I tried these jeans on at Austin’s own LuxRox Boutique, I instantly was hooked! I styled them with these fun patent leather, retro heels that I have worn a ton over the years. I love how the seam in the front of the pants along with the split hem exposing the ankle slims your leg by elongating it! Adding the heel brings it up a notch to “legs for days!”

Then I added an oh so soft silk blush top with a burgundy color moto jacket that is gorgeous and luxe! The texture play is perfection combining suede, leather, and silk! I also haven’t stopped wearing these earrings since I bought them. The pearl at the bottom is a chic pop of neutral color that I love.

Statement Boots

If you’ve been following along with me here or on Instagram, you know I usually keep things pretty classic and simple when putting my outfits together. However, when I want to take my outfits up a notch, a statement boot does the trick.

These burgundy snake print boots are my fall obsession, and I’ve been wearing them every chance I get! They are a sock-boot style, which is one of my favorite types of boots. I love that they look great on a bare leg and they easily tucked under my pants.

Style Options

  • The easiest and most chic way to wear statement boots is to keep your clothing in a monochrome tone, such as all black. Keeping your outfit as simple as I have here, lets your boots sing.
  • Mix them with other prints but keeping solid pieces in between. Doing this will give your eye a break from prints so as not to overwhelm. Wear your fun statement boots with solid pants or a skirt. Add a neutral color top and a printed neck scarf or bag.
  • A statement boot can also be a bright color such as red, purple or metallic. You can style solid colored boots in the same way as above too.
  • Red boots paired with a pretty leopard or plaid dress is a perfect way to take that outfit up a notch!

5 Ways To Stand Out In Your LBD

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

Maggy London Dress // Heels // Gucci Belt (Dupe) // Similar bag // Sunglasses

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!

How to Look Chic Wearing Multiple Trends - Her Fashioned Life

How To Look Chic Wearing Multiple Trends

How To Look Chic Wearing Multiple Trends 1365 2048 Tammy Caciola

Fashion Trend Combining

If you have been following my blog or Instagram you know I tend to stick to the classic side of fashion. However, I love to mix in trends to update my look! The new fashion trends are always fresh and exciting!  I can’t help but add a couple of lust-worthy pieces to my closet each season!

Just remember, the key to looking chic and not looking like a “fashion victim” is to balance your entire look. With the outfit I have on here, even though everything I have on is a trend, it doesn’t look overdone. The utility jumpsuit has been trending for years and has made its way back to the streets for Spring 2018. The rainbow trend was getting big last year, however, this year it’s proving to be much bigger, and belt bags also peeked out last year but are currently the bag to have! The Prada belt bag I have is also a crossbody with a gorgeous chain! Love that you can wear it crossbody or as a belt bag! I’m obsessed and reach for it all the time!

Styling Multiple Trends In One Outfit

Pick the hero piece of the outfit

To get a chic but trendy look, let one item shine. Build the rest of your outfit around that one piece. For my outfit here it’s all about the rainbow heels. The other items are also trendy but in neutral colors and do not attract too much attention away from the pop of color the heels have.

Choose A Color Palette

Don’t go wild with multiple colors. Keep it to three colors maximum for a chic look. If you can also streamline your bag and shoes, this will gound your look and pull it together. So if you have a gorgeous white dress with red polka dots you want to wear. Maybe go with trendy red or white heels and the same color round bag. Polish the look off with plastic cat-eye sunnies and a red lip! Whatever the accessory color you choose, you just want the polka dot dress to be the hero.

Wear The Outfit Well

When you go out of your comfort zone, but love what you are wearing it will show in your body language and face when you step out the door! You can mix 3 different patterns, colors and textures and still shine in that fabulous outfit if you have the confidence and attitude to back it up!  If you’re unsure about your choices, take baby steps with trends until you feel more at ease to step it up a notch.

What is your favorite trend of 2018?

The Essential Hoodie

If you are wondering how to layer a hoodie then your on the right track girl! The hoodie has gone mainstream thanks to the street style stars and celebrities wearing it non-stop! I think every girl needs at least one hoodie in their closet! It is such a versatile piece that it can be worn throughout the year.

Style Options

I’m here to share some easy style tips on how you can start layering a hoodie like a pro and work it into your everyday life!

  • Sporty –  Try a hoodie sweatshirt with a knitted beanie, black denim or leggings, and sneakers. You can also layer the hoodie under a bomber or varsity jacket. I love all-black clothing with a contrasting light grey jacket!
  • Grunge – Start with a graphic t-shirt, add your zip-up hoodie, destroyed denim and then top it all with a long wool coat. For shoes, you can go with a vintage sneaker or my new favorite combat boot.
  • Girlish – Style a black hoodie over a black and white printed short skirt, sneakers and a bright bag or clutch.
  • Masculine – Wear it layered under a trench with skinny jeans and vintage sneakers. I did this above with the plaid trench and added white boots to elevate the look! A bright bag will add interest to the outfit!
  • Contrast – Pairing it with a pencil skirt that is also lace is super cute! Another contrasting look would be a satin pleated maxi skirt. However, make sure to go with a high waisted skirt and a cropped version hoodie for the proportions to work.
  • Casual – This is a favorite look of mine! I love a light colored hoodie with a light denim jacket, don’t forget to push up the sleeves. Then go black or grey denim with black or white sneakers!
  • Chic – All black everything! Just play with proportions and textures of leather, denim, cotton and uber chic fur! For shoes choose a pointed toe boot or thigh-high boots with heels!
  • Athletic – Run around town in your yoga pants, hoodie with a puffer vest or nylon sporty jacket layered over and athletic shoes.

I love that the hoodie has a bit of a boyish feel. If you love this tomboy look don’t miss my post here, 4 Menswear Pieces To Add To A Girls Closet.
