I apologize for my absence the past week. I’ve been busy interviewing and accepting a sales position for after graduation in May. Needless to say I am super excited to have finally landed a job. It feels as if a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders. I’m also excited to be able to get back to chatting with all of you here on my blog.
Today’s blog is about the 9 items every girl needs to glam up her wardrobe. If you are hitting the mall this weekend keep these items in mind- you can never have too many of each. This post should be pretty fun so stick with me!
A Cocktail Ring. Even if it is 100% faux (read in a glamorous French accent) a little light-catching bling ring makes a big statement. Quick tip: if you are going to wear a huge cocktail ring, make sure your mani is up to par because people will be eyeing up your hand all night.
The Pencil Skirt. Did you know that a pencil skirt is a girl’s best friend? The skirt traces your hips, hugs your booty, and helps to create that hourglass shape we all desire to have. Go knee-length if you are shooting for the more classic style or grab your short skirt from the back of your closet if you’re feeling fierce that day!
The LBD. Every girl must have a go-to little black dress. Whether it is sleek and minimal or has a ton of rhinestones, there’s no denying it is a wardrobe necessity. Quick tip: dress your dress up with a great pair of Louboutins. Every girl deserves a little pop of red underneath her heels! Or make it more casual with a great pair of flats. Which every style you pick you are 100% ready for any and every LBD occasion.
The Trench Coat. The trench coat is a staple for carrying all of us fashionistas everywhere. If you don’t already have a trench I highly recommend splurging on this item THIS WEEKEND! I love my trench coat! It is great for the spring months when you still need a jacket. Quick tip: try tying the belt that comes with the trench around your waist instead of hooking it like you normally would. This is way cuter and makes for a fabulous outfit.
Red Stilettos. Although red heels take confidence to pull off there is also a payoff in all of the fabulous compliments you will receive. Quick tip: be sure to pair these shoes with a non-red outfit. It’s the pop of red that makes the outfit. All red will make the outfit blend together too much.
Oversize Sunglasses. Add oversized sunnies to your look for a touch of star power for the day. Were they invented for us to protect our eyes or to add a little mystery to our outfit? Who really knows the real reason, but trust me when I say the bigger the better!
Skinny Jeans. Even though these are denim, it does not mean they fall into the slummy weekend “I’m tired of looking nice” apparel. With a pair of cute heels you are ready to hit the mall and they are totally dress-code appropriate for any occasion. Quick tip: they are a great substitute to black pants or a skirt for a late night out.
Dangly Earrings. You don’t need to spend a ton of money to find big fancy earrings. Chandelier earrings make adding the finishing touches to your night out on the town outfit really simple. As with your over the top sunglasses the bigger your earrings the more attention you draw to your ears. Quick tip: if you go with big earrings keep the rest of your jewelry simple. Sometimes it is possible to over accessorize.
Belt it. A belt is often an overlooked accessory. I bet you usually spend all of your time planning your shoes and handbag without thinking to add a belt to make an outfit look complete. A belt not only makes you look pulled together, it also helps accentuate curves and can help make you look slimmer.
I thought this was a fun way to help everyone spring into the fabulous weather that is right around the corner. What are your closet must haves? Let me know in the comments below. Have a great weekend! Be Fierce, Be Fabulous, Be You and remember, nice girls always finish first.
