Rocker Chic!

As per a request from one of my readers, I have put together a look inspired by Rock and Roll. But I put a sexy spin on it. Nothing says "Rock" like a sexy black shirt and some sexy red heels. This outfit is front row worthy! I love the accessories here. I feel like they really jazz up the outfit! If you are attending a show and anticipate that you will be mostly standing, you can exchange the shoes shown for some wedges or flats. But try to find some with a little color.

A Fashionably Simple Look

Here is a great look filled with designer pieces you will wear over and over again. It is a great look for the office and for meetings, but you still won’t look to corporate if you wear it on the weekends or out for dinner or drinks after work. To further accessorize, pair it with some simple stud earrings and a simple necklace. I think both gold and silver would work with this look. The wide leg pants are a must, as you probably already own a bunch of shirts, blouses, and sweaters that would match.

Blouse and High Waist Skirt

A great look right now is a plain, cute, white blouse being tucked into a high waist skirt. And pairing the outfit with HOT shoes is a must! This look here is a great way to get started with this trend. its simple, yet chic and girly. The colors are pretty neutral and toned down, so I added a funky orange bracelet to spice it up.
