Lady’s Fashion Tips for a Valentine’s Day Dinner Date

For menswear.

Every date night should be special, but Valentine’s Day somehow always takes the cake. No matter if you’re going out on the town or looking forward to a romantic night in, we have a few suggestions sure to get you looking and feeling your best.
Calvin Kleins Short-Sleeve Embellished Sheath Dress lipstick red

For a big night out, it doesn’t seem to matter how extensive your wardrobe is; a new outfit seems to be on everyone’s mind. While the classic black dress is always a fan favorite, use the season as a good excuse to take a walk on the wild side and slip into something red. Not only is it the hue of the season, but a little pop of color can really boost your mood.

Michael Kors Petite One-Shoulder Hardware Sheath Dress

Calvin Klein’s Short-Sleeve Embellished Sheath Dress in lipstick red is sure to take you out of your shell. With gold studs and slim fit it’s the type of dress that looks good on everyone. Or try Michael Kors Petite One-Shoulder Hardware Sheath Dress for a fancier night out. The asymmetrical shape and hardware detailing are bound to make your date do a double take.

For a more casual night, we love the Ralph Lauren Short-Sleeve Cold Shoulder Top in fiery Madison Red. Pair with black pants or jeans and a long necklace to complete the look. Another option is to stay nice and cozy in a dolman sweater such as the Cabe & Gauge Studded Dolman-Sleeve Sweater. This boat-neck top is adorned with little studs for a little extra pizzaz on a classic silhouette.

If you like to have a little fun with your look, go all out and add a little whimsy with lip covered shoes. While tons of designers have fallen in love with the lip trend such as Brain Atwood and Sam Edelmen, we love these INC Zitah pumps available exclusively at Macy’s.

Also try enhancing your own set of lips with a touch of color. A sexy pout is one of our favorite ways to really enhance a look and we love Dior Addict Lipstick for soft kissable lips with proven long lasting properties. Their moisturizing formula and gorgeous shades will leaving you looking and feeling amazing. Lips like yours are just begging to be kissed.

So enjoy Feb 14th and every other date night because romance should always be in the air!

Sweater Weather Time!

It’s officially fall, which means no more swimsuits and pumpkin-spiced everything! It’s also a great time to invest in a cozy knit to take you into the winter months.

Wear Something Chunky

For days spent pumpkin picking and nights curling up by the fire, nothing tops a cable knit sweater. Keep yourself toasty warm in Lauren Ralph Lauren’s Cable Knit Turtleneck Sweater. With a cotton linen blend, this sweater will keep you snug and stylish.

Add Some Fringe

Vintage Havana Aztec Fringe Trim Poncho is perfect as the temperature begins to drop. With short sleeves and a hood, this poncho might not be ideal for February but is great for a slight chill in the air. The stylish piece looks great over leggings and jeans and is a top pick for fall!

Split it Up

A side split is a great way to add something unique to your bundled up look. We adore Aqua’s Split-Side Ribbed Sweater in Pavement Twist. The design is longer in the back covering your derrière (Perfect if you love leggings and are guilty of wearing them as pants; you know who you are!) It features a rounded neckline with contrasting ribbed detail and a slim fit for a modern take on knitwear!

Goodbye summer- It’s time for sweaters!

For Fall 2015, It’s All About Flares!

This season, skinny pants are out! Ok, maybe not fully expendable, but the style pendulum is swinging back towards the boot cut jeans of your youth. While you may be tempted to dig out a pair from the back of your close – ask yourself honestly, do they still fit? – today’s flares have a bit more of a modern feel.

What’s different about the new flares? First off, the leg is tapered on the thigh and down past the knee before gradually extending into a boot cut for that slim skinny look we all grew to love. Think of it as a combination, as if you’re skinnies and old boot cut jeans had a baby. The look is not only sleeker and sophisticated, but also makes for a great elongating silhouette.

Afraid you won’t be able to pull off denim that’s not clinging to your calves? No matter your dress size or body type, a flared leg will actually lengthen your legs, which will in turn improve the appearance of your thighs. This means if your short, you’ll actually look taller! If you’re plus-sized, you’ll look balanced and lean. Even a boyish figure will be enhanced due to a little extra fabric by your feet!

So jump on board this new flared trend! If you’re not ready to go all in, might we suggest incorporating just a pair or two into your wardrobe to change it up. No one says you need to give up your skinnies completely, but when you see how good you look in your new jeans, you might just want to!

Fringe Is Having a Major Fashion Moment

The reason you see models walk down a runway rather than standing still is to showcase the movement of the garment. As anyone who’s ever been to a fashion show or watched one televised knows, there’s something special about a flowing skirt effortlessly sashaying down the catwalk. Perhaps that’s why we’re so in love with this 70’s trend. Fringe instantly adds a little movement to your ootd (outfit of the day).

We love full out fringe skirts. There are a ton on the market right now from H&M’s breezy Fringed Skirt. Or for just a touch, try Forever 21’s Fringed Faux Suede Skirt. The asymmetrical fringe adds a little something special to your basic tees and tanks, for a simple contemporary look.
