CELEBRITIES LOVE DOUBLE DENIM

It’s no newsflash that the double denim trend, once a fashion faux pas to the highest degree, is sticking around for Fall 2015.

The trend, made popular by celebrities such as Rosie Huntington Whiteley and Jessica Alba, is here to stay and couldn’t be simpler to put together. In fact, I am certain you already have jeans in your closet and most likely a denim shirt too, so pair the two together to get a look on whole new level of chic.

The best thing about this look, is you can accessorize to your own personal taste. Wear a simple necklace with the buttons opened on your shirt. Want a more daring look? Then button the shirt all the way and team with a statement necklace around the collar of the shirt. If jewelry isn’t your thing, no problem. Wear your favorite red lippy to let your lips do the talking.

The possibilities are endless! Here is some celebrity inspiration for you!

GET THE LOOK: GIGI HADID

Gigi Hadid kills it when it comes to style and this week was no exception. When she wasn’t strutting her model figure on the catwalks of some of fashion’s biggest names, she was attending parties and walking the red carpet for some of the hottest events.

For the  Harper’s Bazaar Icons Party, Gigi stepped out wearing a fully embellished dress that bore the signature structure and design that has become synonymous with #BalmainArmy

However much to my delight, this dress is actually from the Balmain x H&M collection, which is to be relased on November 5th, 2015.

I cannot wait! This has to be one of the most exciting collaborations and will surely sell out in moments.

Credit cards and purses at the ready ladies! Only a short few weeks left to wait!

5 STYLING HACKS EVERY GIRL NEEDS TO KNOW

Yves Saint Laurent “famously said, fashions fade, style is eternal” and so while it is simple enough to buy the latest It Bag or deisgner shoes, styling them is something that doesn’t come to everyone naturally.

Here are some of the styling hacks used by the fashionistas and the influencers of the fashion world.

  1. BELT UP

If Olivia Palermo has taught me anything, apart from the fact that a glorious eye roll is essential in life, it is that you are never fully dressed without a belt!

The socialite knows how to rock any outfit and accentuate her figure, by bringing in her outfit at the waist, with her latest belt.

2. Drape it

Drape your jacket over your shoulders once in awhile to change up your look. Not recommended for every day wear although I might add!

3. The Half Tuck

Tuck your shirt or top in to your pant. Not in geeky way, that brings your pants up really high; just half tuck the shirt in for a chic look.
