Fall Fashion: September Haul

As some of you may know, I am going to Washington, D.C. in November for Pan-Hellenism Weekend, which is basically just a giant convention of Greeks. I’m super pumped, not only because I’m going to see friends from camp and go to a new place, but also because I had to get some new clothes for the occasion!

I am a self-proclaimed shopaholic. Once I start, it’s very, very hard to get me to stop. I recently bought a decent amount of clothes from Target, Century 21 and Forever 21, so I figured I’d share them with you Tasters. Everything is styled with NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Vintage (here). Also, a major shout out to my mom for buying most of these clothes and my brother Nicholas who came shopping with us and spent two hours taking pictures of me. Hope you all enjoy!

I love the long length and the color of this sweater. Plus, it’s super comfy!!

Gray Turtleneck

The beauty of buying plain shirts is that I can easily pair them with eye-grabbing printed bottoms.

Button-front skirts have been super trendy right now, so I had to get one in one of my absolute fave colors!

Winter Style: Holiday Party Look #2: Velvet Dress

Hey, everyone! Hope you’re all as excited for the holidays as I am, especially for the awesome outfit opportunities! Here’s a more posh, high fashion-y outfit for you all to try! Hope you like it!

Velvet Dress

Velvet is such a luxurious looking and feeling fabric, but it’s generally affordable, so it’s a great way to take an outfit to the next level. Look for a short dress in a stand-out color since it will be the focus of your ensemble.

Faux Leather Moto Jacket

To keep up the luxe look at a lower cost, pair the velvet dress with a simple, black faux leather moto jacket. The simplicity of the cut and style of the jacket will allow the velvet dress to take center stage, but the faux leather will make you look effortlessly cool and fun!

To make this outfit more urban, fun and fashion-y, I would pair it with a pair of printed or brightly colored high top sneakers. They’re comfy and quirky, and add a bit of interest to your outfit!

To finish up this outfit, I would add some popping accessories. I would start off with sheer black tights to keep your leg warms, and then a pair of black knee high socks scrunched down to just above your shoes for a fashion forward look. Feel free to substitute something more colorful or quirky for either, or to forgo one or both. I would then choose an eye-catching black and white headband and put my hair in a high bun so it can take center stage. I would also pair it with a pair of glitzy, dangling earrings in a neutral for a bit of dazzle and glamour. Lastly, I would pair the whole ensemble with a small, quirky wallet or clutch to add to the playful feel of the outfit.

Back to School: Look #4: Lace Tank

When I put outfits together, I love to mix old things and new things, as well as pieces of different styles. In this case, I decided to combine a sweet, feminine lace tank with an edgy faux leather jacket. Hope you guys like this eclectic style as much as I do!

Lace Tank

The lace tank is the centerpiece of the outfit. I like something in a light color and fabric to contrast the leather jacket. Be sure to pick a lace style that you like and will wear again. If your tank is too sheer, I would recommend wearing a bandeau or cami underneath it so you’re not too exposed. Also, you want either just the front of the shirt or the whole thing to be lace, that way the jacket won’t cover it. The tank that I found is in a pretty pastel shade, which is really in right now and can transition from season to season. I think the style is cool, too, because it’s kind of retro but urban at the same time. It’s a definite contrast to the leather jacket.

Black Jeans

Next, you need a pair of jet-black skinny jeans. The black color offsets your pastel tank and the fit hugs your curves. Make sure they’re hemmed correctly if you’re short- you don’t want them to look like they’re swallowing you up! When looking for a pair, look for a style that will flatter your body- if you’re tall, look for tall, if you’re curvy, look for curvy, etc. Also, don’t spend a fortune on a pair because the likelihood is that the color will ultimately fade. Black jeans are even cuter when they’re all one color- they flatter your body more than a pair with a bit of fade to them.

Faux Leather Jacket

Faux leather jackets are cool because they give off an edgy look for 1/5 of the price of a real leather jacket. Plus, you don’t have to feel guilty for killing an animal! For this outfit, stick to a black jacket, which will allow the tank to stand out. It’s your choice if you’d rather wear something with long sleeves or short. I prefer short sleeves, but it’s probably easier to find something with long sleeves.

As far as shoes go, I’d like to pair this outfit with a pair of flats that match the tank. It doesn’t really matter what style flat it is, but bringing that color back into the outfit keeps it from becoming too black. However, if you’re afraid of looking too matchy-matchy, go for something a shade darker than the tank or a neutral like grey or silver. Just try to stay away from black- you don’t want your outfit to look too dark!

For this outfit, I would stick to minimal accessories because you don’t want to look like you’re trying too hard. I would stick to some edgy bracelets as well as some string ones- They’re casual, but cool enough to give your outfit some bling. I really love silver accents, especially if you’re wearing a grey or silver pair of shoes!
