#Ask_Bianca: What to Wear with my Navy Stripe Blazer?

Hello, good Morning! Another great day to answer a style question. Today we are helping Alicia with what to pair with Her navy striped blazer.

 She purchased this blazer and wanted some ideas on what would be good colors to pair with it besides the basic black she normally wears. Check out the looks below I gave her for her cute navy striped jacket..

Navy and green. One of my absolute favorite color combinations. In either a dress like above or a skirt or pants, you can’t go wrong with this color pairing.

Another option we talked about was keeping it neutral on the bottom and adding color up top. For this look we paired dark denim jeans with a bright yellow top and browns edges. 

For a more classic look, pair with black pants and a classic white woven. Because navy is also a neutral, it is ok to pair with black for a cool look that doesn’t require all black. Finish with a shoe in a bright color to complete your look.

I love this look. Sill paired with a colored pant but this time a more subdued, soft color. Very feminine and very chic, this pastel pink pant looks super stylish paired with a cream shell and navy stripe jacket. Pair with a nude heel and you are ready.

So, as you can see, the possibilities are endless! With this striped blazer, in a neutral color, you are free to experiment. Have fun, try something new! 

Let me know your thoughts and send me pics of your looks! Until next time…

#Ask_Bianca: How do I style a tulle skirt?

As promised, I’m back and I can’t wait to bring you tips and inspiration for this week’s style question. This week we are taking a look at the tulle skirt. 

I know traditionally when you think of a tulle skirt you think little girls and ballerina shoes. Well, the tulle skirt has come a long way and it’s not just for little girls or solely for ballet class anymore.The skirt has made its way to the closets of big girls and some in new, modern form. Check out the looks below inspired by the modern tulle skirt above.  Go for a modern take or if you are bold enough, try the more traditional skirt, the inspiration below works for both!

A twist on traditional casual, pair your tulle skirt with a classic denim jacket, white tee and cute sandals. 

Looking for something a little more? Take the concept of the casual look above and amp it up a little. Instead of a jean jacket, chose a dark colored cardigan and instead of a casual tee, pair with a classic white woven. For a little more interest, pair with leopard print flats.

A chambray button front shirt is a closet staple and will make for a chic, stylish look when paired with your tulle skirt. Dress up your chambray  inspired look by pairing with a t-strap heel.

So, what do you think? How did I do  my first post back? I hop you found some inspiration and learned some tips if you want to try out this look.

 Can you, or should I say, would you try the tulle skirt? Let me know your thoughts and if you have or will ty this look.Until next time…

#ASKTHESTYLIST: How To: bridge the gap, modern and retro

So this week, our style question came from a male looking for a more sophisticated look that doesn’t require he give up his retro aesthetic.

I must say this is one that really made me stretch a little. To achieve a look that would be pleasing to Lonnie, I had to find just the right balance between modern and nostalgic.

Let’s hope I didn’t miss the mark. Check out what I came up with below…

Some of the retro aspects Lonnie told me he liked were the patterns of the past and he loved the coats. The suspenders lend a cool throwback vibe that is balanced with the modern feel of the shoe and coat pairings.

The paperboy cap is a classic old school staple. This is paired with a cool plaid blazer and a basic white tee and dark denim for a more current look.

Classic and certainly sophisticated. This time there are plaid windowpane print trousers paired with a soft colored, modern button up and vest. 

So what do you think? Did I find the sweet spot between the two worlds? Let’s hope so, I hope I have something that Lonnie will love…Until the next #ASKTHESTYLIST
