It is now February 4th, you are looking through your closet saying “I have nothing to wear.” You have a ton of holiday attire such as sequins, feathers, silk skirts and gowns , but not sure how to incorporate these items into your everyday look. Have no fear, The Hopeful Stylist is here!
“Sequin attire is only to be worn at night.” If styled right sequin can be worn during the day and at night. Here’s how: I purchased this pencil skirt in silver from Banana Republic and styled it as a day, fun weekend and evening look.
Rule #1 You can wear a t-shirt with anything. T-shirts can be dressed casually or dressed up for an evening event. If you want to dress up a t-shirt add a statement necklace.
Disney’s The Little Mermaid is my favorite Disney movie ( I always cry at the end when she leaves her daddy) to keep with the theme of dressed up, yet fun I completed this look with a pair of Vivienne Westwood by Melissa shoes. I like the big red heart detail. FYI the shoes smell like bubble gum.
Rule#2 Sneakers can be worn with everything, within reason. Always use creative judgement when trying to add a pair of sneakers with a very dressy item. Adidas Superstar sneakers are easy to pair with any outfit.
What girl doesn’t love MAC Cosmetics ! I’m wearing Flat Out Fabulous Bright Plum Matte Lipstick and it is awesome. Very creamy, long wearing and a very bold color to add an extra pop to this outfit.
To complete this casual weekend look and for those chilly days and nights…an Adidas track jacket. I attended the NBA All Star game last year and decided to purchase this track jacket to commemorate the event.
Rule #3 Heels go with EVERYTHING!!! Especially with a touch of leopard. I paired the same sequin skirt with Sam Edelman two toned studded heels.
I love the subtleness of the black studs on the back of the shoes. It adds a little rockstar feel. My favorite jewelry are statement necklaces…. I styled this look with a Topshop black studded piece. Whenever you wear a chunky sweater and you want to give yourself a waist add a belt.
NYX cosmetics makes great vibrant lipsticks. The shade I am wearing is Twisted Bright Violet. Its high voltage and very moisturizing!
Have some fun and try these looks!
