Thank you to Saks OFF 5TH and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post
Over the course of my years, specifically blogging years I have learned a few tricks of the trade in terms of shopping and styling. What kind of blogger would I be if I didn’t share these secrets with you? There are some tried and true fashion tips that I swear by, but sometimes it’s good for a little refresher. With the start of a new year, it’s a great time to go back to the basics of style and check in with your current wardrobe. There are some key pieces that I think every woman should have in her closet: a great pair of jeans and a classic white shirt. But I also believe in having a little fun – because that is what fashion is all about! Here are some style secrets and clothing from Saks OFF 5Th to start off your year. Plus, right now at Saks OFF 5TH you can save an extra 50-60% off cold weather clothing and boots!
Style Secret 1: Fit First
A great pair of jeans can be hard to come by – but when you find the pair that fits you should stick with it. I always look for fun details on denim – like a button fly or raw hem, but if they don’t hug me in the right places they just won’t work. These jeans by Flying Monkey have a mid-rise fit and dark rinse wash – they have the perfect amount of stretch to wear all day. Curious to know what style jeans works best for your body type? There are no specific guidelines, but generally speaking boyfriend jeans look great on athletic builds, straight leg jeans look great on hourglass, athletic, or apple figures, bootcut jeans work great with hourglass and apple figures, flares look great on apple and pear shape figures, and skinny jeans look good on all shapes… you just need to find the pair that feel best!
Style Secret 2: Make the Statement
Investing in a few key pieces will always be worthwhile, but sometimes there is an unexpected item that stops you in your tracks. This faux fur vest is the ultimate in winter glam and is hands down a statement maker. A bold piece – whether it’s a fun sneaker or dangly earring or long coat – will be the central focus of your look. Keep the rest of your look simple.
Style Secret 3: Wear What You Love
Feeling good about yourself comes from within, but a great outfit can help to exude that confidence. Whether it means showing off your best features or wearing your favorite print – it can give you the extra needed oomph. But here is the secret – not all trends were created for everyone – hence why they are called trends. Wear what YOU love and the good vibes will come pouring out.
