Be The Trendsetter

Often times, girls tend to dress like clones and just copy everything that other girls wear to look cool. Try to refrain from purchasing all of your clothing from Hollister and Lululemon simply because that is the “thing” to do. It is best to buy clothing that looks great on you and still looks fashionable! Purchase clothing from all different stores, while still keeping tabs on fashion trends. Don’t only limit yourself to purchasing expensive clothing, you can buy excellent second hand clothing but for much less money from many stores as well. Look for clothing that fits your personality and that people will recognize as your style! Be the girl that looks stylish and cute, instead of the girl that blends into the crowd and looks like everyone else….be a trendsetter. Look different then others yet still look much more fashion forward! If others like what you are wearing, then they will catch on, and it is likely that you will see some people wearing the same clothing the next week. Keep in mind, however, that setting trends does not mean you have to create a completely new trend that was entirely unheard of. Instead, follow trends that are all the rage in fashion but that most people have not caught on to.

My Take On Business Casual

For those of you that find business casual attire quite difficult and confusing, no worries, I have got it all figured out. When wearing clothing for work, you want to give the professional impression that will make people take you seriously. Now, when wearing clothing for school, it is simply called casual because it is much less formal then work, which means that you can wear jeans and sweatshirts. So business casual is just a less formal and laid-back option of traditional business wear. In a nutshell, business casual is a sweet combination of business clothing with everyday clothing.

Work Style.

People tend to adopt this dress code because it gives them more leeway to dress more comfortably and allows them to express themselves with their clothing. For example, bright colors, bold prints, and casual blouses, may be frowned upon with regular business attire but is good for business casual. However, although bold colors and patterns can be great, it is also important to have a sense of when neutral and classic colors are appropriate depending on your job, employer, or the type of event that you are attending. Opt for any kind of pants that are not jeans. I really love the skinny and cropped pants that women are sporting for work; you don’t have to only wear wide legged trousers! Five splendid universal pieces that work very well for this look are are cotton-blend trousers, a cardigan, blouse, collared shirt, and skirt. Ultimately, try your best to look polished, professional, and fashionable!

My Take On Business Casual

The Arm Candy Trend

Recently, my sister brought me back two awesome bracelets from her trip to Europe, and I have been loving them! In the first picture below I am wearing the two bracelets, and I also added a cute watch from Francesca’s. I could have either added a couple more bracelets or finished off my look with a thick watch, which is what I chose to do. You don’t have to go out and buy any expensive bracelets. I’m sure you can dig up some old charm bracelets, biker bracelets, vintage bracelets, etc. Anything goes! Just remember not to go overboard! You want to look classy and hip with your bracelets, not like someone who decided her arm is her new Christmas tree. Enjoy these other examples of fashionistas layering a bunch of different bracelets on their arm.
