Since you’re visiting this website, we assume that you’re gorgeous, fun, and have the basics of fashion. we bet you have the basics of a wardrobe like a mini black dress, a pair knee high boots and dark skinny jeans. Also, you might have all kinds of shirts, pants, dresses, and fun extras – but we tell you, with all the woman’s clothing you have, it gets a little bit annoying when you think your closet is not like a “real wardrobe”.

 

Figuring out how to turn your wardrobe from fine to fantastic is a very long time. Every girl knows the struggle and we’re no exception. By having a clear picture of some mix and matches using a few pieces can make your OOTDs (outfit of the day) look a little more awesome.

 

In this article, we’ve outlined some of the things you must have to a have a cool and trendy street-chic outfit every day.

 
Flannels for Comfort

To have a rocking wardrobe, flannels are always good to start. Here are some ways on how to wear it the “chic-style”:

○ Pair it with denim shorts, a Bohemian headband and casual rubber shoes such as Converse, Vans, Sperry and any other casual shoes.

○ Wear it under an oversized cardigan. Make sure it’s thick-knitted. Skinny jeans in the bottom and knee-high boots.

○ Tie it around your waist and wear a combat shoes.

 

Cropped Leather Jacket

Yes, we know it’s a little bit of an investment piece but purchasing a leather jacket doesn’t have to be that expensive. There are stores out there who are selling leather jackets for $25 and may last for 5 years and longer with the same buttery soft feeling when you purchase it. Here’s a few on how to be stylish with it:

○ Top it to your summer dress to extend its life until fall.

○ A crop top and sweatpants. Then put on the leather jacket.

  1. A Girly Dress – every woman needs a sweet, gorgeous, girly dress in their life. Look for something with a light but muted color so it may be perfect for winter as well. The color “cream” is the best for us!
    ○ A floral or some lacy dress with a chambray top to turn it into a skirt.

    ○ Tie a flannel in your waist or with a military-inspired jacket.
  2. A Simple Black Maxi Dress – A black maxi dress that is chic as ever is very versatile. The secret to a perfect black maxi dress? A simple design that you can always wear anywhere with comfort.

    ○ Don’t feel like showing too much skin? You can top this with a crop top to turn the dress into a skirt.

    ○ How about a pairing it with your chicest flat sandal, a statement necklace, and a red lipstick for a perfect date night look?
  3. An Oversized Sweater – Some teenage girls have this obsession to pink and peach sweaters during our high school days. Good thing, we didn’t adapt that fashion sense. Here’s a few on how to wear this the awesome way:

    ○ A distressed sweater and any kind of boots for a student walk look.

    ○ An oversized sweater and a pair of denim pants? Simple yet cool.

 

Take Away

These are just some of the pieces you need for you to have an awesome outfit every day. Having a wardrobe makeover doesn’t really need to be as expensive as you think. What’s most important is to be stylish without sacrificing comfort.

THE PRICE OF ILLUSION

Joan Juliet Buck, the only child of larger-than-life film producer Jules Buck, was born into a world of make-believe.  Her childhood was a whirlwind of famous faces: John Huston, Peter O’Toole, Lauren Bacall, Federico Fellini, Angelica Huston, and many more; ever-changing home addresses: London, Paris, Cannes, Los Angeles; and the unspoken lesson that appearances mattered more than reality.  When Joan became the first and only American woman ever to fill the coveted position of Editor in Chief of Paris Vogue, she quickly became a force in the cult of fashion and beauty.  Her job gave her the means to recreate for her aging father, now a widower, the life he’d enjoyed during his high-flying years – a splendid illusion of glamour and luxury.  But such illusions cannot be sustained indefinitely, and they always come at a cost.

In THE PRICE OF ILLUSION (Atria Books; March 7, 2017) Joan offers up a dazzling spanning six decades spent in the creative heart of London, New York, Los Angeles, Milan, Paris, and more.  The cues she had gleaned early in life from her family were about how things looked and where they came from.  The key to success was the perception of success; the only trick to transformation?  Believing you were what you wanted to be.  But when her fantasy life at Vogue came to an end, she had to find out who she was after all those years of make-believe.  Now Buck chronicles her quest to discover the difference between glitter and gold, fantasy and reality, and what merely looks like happiness from the thing itself.

From Joan Juliet Buck, former editor-in-chief of Paris Vogue comes her dazzling, compulsively readable memoir: a fabulous account of four decades spent in the creative heart of London, New York, Los Angeles, and Paris, chronicling her quest to discover the difference between glitter and gold, illusion and reality, and what looks like happiness from the thing itself.

Born into a world of make-believe as the daughter of a larger-than-life film producer, Joan Juliet Buck’s childhood was a whirlwind of famous faces, ever-changing home addresses, and a fascination with the shiny surfaces of things. When Joan became the first and only American woman ever to fill Paris Vogue‘s coveted position of Editor in Chief, a “figurehead in the cult of fashion and beauty,” she had the means to recreate for her aging father, now a widower, the life he’d enjoyed during his high-flying years, a splendid illusion of glamorous excess that could not be sustained indefinitely.

Joan’s memoir tells the story of a life lived in the best places at the most interesting times: London and New York in the swinging 1960s, Rome and Milan in the dangerous 1970s, Paris in the heady 1980s and 1990s. But when her fantasy life at Vogue came to an end, she had to find out who she was after all those years of make-believe. She chronicles this journey in beautiful and at times heartbreaking prose, taking the reader through the wild parties and the fashion, the celebrities and creative geniuses as well as love, loss, and the loneliness of getting everything you thought you wanted and finding it’s not what you’d imagined. While Joan’s story is unique, her journey toward self-discovery is refreshing and universal.
