Dress Down Your Knit

DSC_0118

In my recent post: Dress Up Your Knit, I styled this Zara sweater with a Topshop metallic skirt. This week we are dressing down the knit. If you live in Chicago or somewhere that is starting to get 10 degrees already, you’ll want to be wearing a sweater at all times. I love this sweater because not only is it so stylish, but it keeps me so warm! I paired the knit with my black skinny jeans that I cut holes in, and my HM camel coat. Big knits look good with any skinny bottom and booties for a casual look. And did I mention my cool stiletto nails by Static Nails?  Yea, better get your nails did for the holidays and these are so easy to put on and pop off when you forget to paint your nails. Did I mention they are also reusable?! Check out the nails, where you can get my look, and other similar looks below! -De (Happy Thanksgiving!)

AMAs Best Dressed

There were so many gorgeous ladies at this years AMAs. JLo is still hot as ever in this champagne/pale pink Reem Acra dress, and did you see that performance (damn girl)?! Kylie dressing a little too mature for her age? Maybe, but I don’t care because she was still stunning in that burgundy satin, high slit Alexandre Vauthier dress. And why was Kate Beckinsale at a music award show? Doesn’t matter because she was definitely one of the best dressed women of the night too in Kaufmanfranco.

The high slit ladies: Jordan Sparks stunned in this gold metallic Halston dress. Kendall Jenner is just perfect in Yigal Azrouel and looks amazing in anything. Fergie Ferg made a come back in this black simple Halston Heritage dress.

Julianne Hough was stunning in this Zuhair Murad fire red dress. Selena Gomez kept it very simple and classy in this backless Armani Prive gown.

Jessie J looked super cool and sleek in an all white pantsuit. Zendaya was looking a little RiRi, but also looked cool wearing pants on the red carpet in Georgine.

Dress Up Your Knit

DSC_0176

These days in Chicago are getting colder and colder, so I wanted to show you guys two ways this week how you can style your cute knits this winter. So, this first post is all about dressing up your sweater. I paired my Zara sweater with a metallic midi skirt from Topshop and my favorite HM boots of course. I love the look of the oversized sweater with the skirt, or to dress it up even more you can wear a shorter cropped sweater with a statement necklace. It’s such an easy look to put together and to just throw it on over a slim dress or a sequined/metallic skirt for the holidays. Check out how you can get my look and other similar looks below! -De

A Little Metallic in Your Life

DSC_0098

Well this will be the last time I wear a skirt an crop top combo considering today is 30 degrees, but who knows next week could be back up to 60. For this look, I paired my new fav go-to grey crop top with a little metallic. This gold pleated midi skirt from Topshop is a really fun piece to dress an outfit up for the fall and soon to be holiday season. Also would look good styled with an oversized sweater now that it’s getting colder! Check out where you can get the look below! – De
