Winter Style: Holiday Outfits #1 +#2


It’s holiday party season, which means it’s time for red everything, velvet dresses, high heels, and tons of tinsel. Stay tuned for some cool outfit ideas!

Holiday Outfit Inspiration #1: Red Peplum Top

I love wearing red to holiday parties. I think it’s such a great, festive color. So a red peplum top is a great central piece for this outfit. Peplum tops help whittle your waist and create and hourglass figure. Pair with a pair of black leather or coated pants and a patterned sports jacket for a cool-girl kind of look and a bit of shine. Finish off the look with black stilettos with red accents, a black bag with some silver hardware and a solid silver choker to polish the entire outfit.

Choker: O-Ring Snake Chain Coker in Silver, $3.90 at Forever 21

Pants: Moto Babe Coated Leggings, $15.87 at Go Jane

Shoes: C Label Napoli-28 in Black, $32.99 at 6pm

Purse: Ida Clutch by Carlos Santana, $29.99 at TJ Maxx

Jacket: Jealous Tomato Floral Raglan Scuba Bomber Jacket, $29.99 at Century 21

Holiday Outfit Inspiration #2: Denim Mini Skirt

Another look I really love is the denim mini skirt. Though people may traditionally associate denim skirts with springtime, I happen to love a denim skirt paired with a long coat and long sleeves for the winter. This look is definitely more casual and fun, so it would be great for a small New Years gathering. I’d start with a straight denim skirt, paired with an athletic-looking all-black long sleeve shirt. Pair this with sneakers (bonus style points if they have a platform!) and layered necklaces for a street-style vibe. Top with a brightly colored peacoat, flashy clutch and ultra-cool minimalistic digital watch and voila! You’ve got an effortlessly cool holiday look!

Top: Varsity Stripe Ponte Crop Top, $15.00 at Charlotte Russe

Peacoat: Anne Klein Double-Breasted Peacoat in Cobalt, $89.99 at Macy’s

Necklaces: Black Tattoo Choker with Layered Arrow and Turquoise Spike Pendant Necklaces Set of 3, $5.00 at Icing

Purse: Colorful Embroidered Clutch in Black, $33.60 at UrbanOG

Sneakers: Superga Acot Linea Sneaker, $79.95 at Nordstrom

Watch: White Digital Activity Tracker Watch in White, $9.99 at Rue 21

I hope these holiday outfit inspirations gave you some ideas on how to amp up your style game for this holiday season! Hope your holidays are wonderful and full of happiness, love, laughter, and great fashion!

Winter Style: Valentine’s Day Look #2: Red Patterned Pants


Welcome back to Tantalizingly Tasteful! We’re just around the corner from Valentine’s Day, so I’ve been working on a series of outfit inspiration for you guys. You can check out my first idea here, but in the meantime, here is a second idea! Hope you guys enjoy!

Red Patterned Pants

Red is such an intense color, and it’s especially great on Valentine’s Day. Be bold and daring by wearing it in a surprising way by rocking red patterned pants. They’ll draw attention to killer legs and add some punch to your outfit. Stick to a tight silhouette to balance out the rest of your outfit.

White and Black Graphic Tank

White and black go great with red. They make the red stand out and since they’re neutral, match with any other color you may add to your outfit. I chose graphics that relate to Valentine’s Day to keep the outfit festive. I would suggest that the shirt itself should be white and the graphics should be white so that the tank stands out under the blazer (more details below.)

Black Fitted Blazer

A black blazer can make an outfit look totally polished, but when paired with red pants and a graphic tank, it can make you look totally urban cool. Make sure the blazer fits well and isn’t too baggy so that you look put together and not like you’re swimming in your clothes.

Shoes

I would pair this outfit either with a leathery, shiny black flat, like a loafer, or a strappy black heel. Both will add to the cool feel of the outfit and play up the red pants.

Accessories

I see this outfit with a really slick and precise updo, like a cool topknot, so I would pair this with a pair of gold drop earrings and an eye-catching clutch. A cool pair of sunglasses would definitely help amp up the cool factor, but of course they’re only necessary if the sun is actually out! Keeping the rest of your accessories minimal will allow this super cool look to speak for itself.

#OOTD July 18, 2015 + How To Rock a Backyard Party


Hey you guys, welcome back to Tantalizingly Tasteful!! The other night, I went to a backyard party to celebrate my friend Jen’s 18th birthday and high school graduation. (Happy birthday and congrats again, Jen!!) Backyard parties are usually pretty mellow and enjoyable, but sometimes weather can get in the way. How can you be prepared for anything that may come your way and still look super cute? Keep reading for my tips, but first, my #OOTD!!

#OOTD

I love taking selfies that show off my makeup!! Rocking e.l.f.’s Essential Jumbo Lip Gloss Stick in Movie Star!! ($2.00 at eyeslipsface.com)
Keeping my accessories pretty minimal let my cool bohemian top (actually a cover-up!!) take center stage!! Special thanks to Emily for taking this picture!! Crochet tunic top (tucked in): Club Z Collection; Cami: So; Jeans: American Eagle Outfitters; Shoes: Nature Breeze; Wristlet: Kenneth Cole Reaction; Assorted gold bangles and handmade string bracelets

Where You Can Get It

ootd 7.18.15 where you can get it
Loramendi Crochet Top in Natural – $50.00 at Kohl’s; Women’s Jersey Shelf-Bra Camis in Black – $7.50 at Old Navy; Red Crystal and Gold Bling Stacking Bracelets Set of 7 – $5.00 at Icing; Stella & Max You & Me Wristlet in Anise – $22.99 at Macy’s; Adriana New York Joye Laser Cut Espadrille Flat in Gold – $14.99 at T.J. Maxx; Distressed Boyfriend Jeans in Denim – $32.90 at Forever 21; Metallic Bangle Set in Gold Metallic – $5.99 at Rue21

Stay Comfy and Chic at a Backyard Bash

  1. Check the weather beforehand: Have an idea of what the anticipated weather is. This will help you dress appropriately for the weather. If the forecast expects it to get chilly at night, you know to wear a sweater or bring a denim jacket, but if it says that it’s going to be humid, you know you’re okay to wear a tank top!
  2. Know your body and yourself: Do you get cold really easily? Are you super likely to get eaten alive by mosquitoes? Are you a really messy eater and liable to stain a white shirt with ketchup or salsa? Make sure that you know what you could possibly encounter and be ready for anything you may face!!
  3. Balance your outfit: This one’s just a basic rule of life: if you’re planning on wearing a shirt that shows some skin (like I did), wear pants. If you want to wear a pair of shorts, cover up your top half a little more. Creating a balance will make you look chic and appropriate.
  4. Keep your hair natural: Do me a favor and don’t do anything special to your hair. Last night, my friend Emily spent half an hour curling her hair for the party, and it fell almost as soon as we got to the party. Straightening or curling your hair is pointless, the summer humidity will just undo it. I suggest leaving it down (like I did) or styling your natural hair with some clips or a headband. That way, you don’t have to worry about all your hard going to waste.

Now I’d like your feedback! I hope this post gave to a little bit of a peek into my life and gave you some ideas about how you can rock a tee! What did you think of my outfit and my tips? Do you have any ideas about how you’d execute an outfit like this? Would you like to see more posts like this in the future?

#OOTD July 17, 2015 + From Sleep Style to Street Style: How to Glam Up a T-Shirt



Hey everyone, hope you’re having a great weekend!! During the summer, I tend to get very lazy as far as fashion and makeup go, but I’ve noticed that I feel less confident when I’m dressed in leggings and a T-shirt with no makeup on. So I set out to make sure that I can still look glam despite the fact that I’m just wearing a T-shirt, and lo and behold, I rocked it the other night for a night in with my girls! Who says you have to wear sweatpants for a night in?! Here’s my outfit of the day, and stay tuned for some of my tips on how to amp up your tee!!

#OOTD

Accessorizing is key; No outfit is complete without its finishing touches!! Bag: Target; Sunglasses: Betsey Johnson; Necklaces: Forever21; Handmade string bracelets

Where You Can Get It

Take Your Tee From Drab to Glam

Here’s some celeb and street style inspiration before I give my tips:

Pairing a plain tee with an eye-catching pattern like cheetah prints and trendy accessories takes your outfit from sleep style to street style, picture via stylecarrot.com
  1. Go monochromatic (or close to it): Wearing all black or all white can look super chic and effortlessly cool. It’s simple and minimalistic, which is totally trendy and urban. If you’re feeling daring, by all means, pick another, brighter color, but I think that black and white are the most sophisticated and stylish colors to go all out on.
  2. Make it a look: By adding makeup and accessories, you can take a tee from sleep style to street style. But, it also depends on the occasion. If you’re getting ready for a night in with friends, like I did, let your makeup do the talking and keep your accessories minimal and casual. If you’re prepping for a date or party, be a little more adventurous with your accessories, trading in flats for heels, a huge bag for an adorable clutch, and bohemian string bracelets for some glam cuffs or earrings. But always remember to let only one part of your face take center stage with makeup to avoid looking like a clown!!
  3. Create a silhouette: Keep your T-shirt from looking boring by tucking it into a pair of pants or a skirt. This will give your body shape and keep your tee from looking like it should be worn with leggings.
  4. Knot or tie it: Add a playful and chic look to your favorite tee by knotting or tying it in the front to create a shorter shirt over a pair of high-waisted jeans or a skirt! You can even throw it over your fave dress to instantly create a skirt!!
  5. Layer it: Who says you have let the tee stay as is? Throw it over a button down shirt to create a preppy collared look, or wear it under a vest for an edgier look. Pair it with a blazer to make it look more professional and sophisticated!!

Now I’d like your feedback! I hope this post gave to a little bit of a peek into my life and gave you some ideas about how you can rock a tee! What did you think of my outfit and my tips?

Winter Style: Holiday Look #4: Shaggy Faux Fur Vest


Hey guys, welcome back! With New Years’ Eve right around the corner, I’m going to try to squeeze in some last minute outfit ideas! Hope you guys enjoy, and don’t forget to check out my first three ideas for more inspiration!

Shaggy Faux Fur Vest

I love faux fur vests because they look luxe and posh but are definitely affordable and guilt-free. They can keep you warm and score you major style points. For this look, I would look for one that has fur that is more hairy and flowy than clumpy, just because it makes it stick out more. I would also choose a lighter white or off-white to add an ethereal look to the ensemble.

Long Sleeve Crop Top

To keep this ensemble winter-appropriate but still cute and fresh, I would pair the vest with a long sleeved crop top in a dark color like maroon or black. This will create contrast with the vest but not steal any attention away from it.

black long sleeve crop top lulu's

Patchwork Skinny Jeans

To add to the cool, urban vibe of the outfit, I would pair this outfit with a pair of skinny jeans with patches and rips. It definitely adds some cool factor and street cred to your outfit, and keeps your outfit sleek and perfect for the season.

Shoes

To add some glam elements to this outfit, I would pair it with high heeled booties in a taupe or beige color. They add some height and high fashion to your outfit, and the neutral color ties the whole outfit together.

Accessories

To further add to the glam look, I would pair the outfit with a snakeskin clutch and a multilayer necklace. This will add some shine to your outfit, as well as some eye-catching details.

Winter Style: Holiday Party Look #3: Ripped Black Jeans


Hey, guys! Merry Christmas Eve to everyone celebrating today! Here’s another cool look for a holiday party! Hope you guys enjoy!

Ripped Black Jeans

As you guys may remember from my Winter Mood Board post, I am obsessed with ripped jeans! They’re so cool and they stand out so much. For this outfit, I like black ripped jeans because they’re sleeker and more high fashion-y. Also, it’s easier to make them look great for any occasion!

White Blouse

Pair the edgy, shredded jeans with something softer and lighter. A white or cream flowy blouse plays up the contrast perfectly and makes for a really standout ensemble.

Tan Booties

To keep your black jeans standing out, pair your outfit with tan booties. Tan is a neutral color, so it won’t distract from any part of your outfit.

Accessories

To finish off the outfit, I would pair it with a long, thin silver or gold necklace, a cuff in the same color, and a tan bag. This will add some needed shine and finish to your outfit. It will pull the whole thing together so that your outfit is fashionable and functional!
