Another Skirt Look – OOTD 10

I think I like wearing skirts more than jeans because I don’t have to worry about high waters lol (I am also obsessed with my jean jacket….

AHHH yes, fall is here, and so is my new revamped wardrobe (sike)…

There is seriously nothing like a black turtleneck with a Banana Republic skirt and a good ole jeans jacket. Another favorite outfit of mine that I just cannot stop thinking about. I felt so chic and feminine.

The colors in this outfit went so well. I was pulling solid colors from the skirt which had blue, black and white embellishments. What better way to make a matchy outfit than to add a black turtle neck and a jean jacket to bring an office look into a casual and sexy look!

Can’t wait to show you my next outfit !

11 Back to School Styles

I made a video showing some of my very simple and quick styles for class! Especially when you’re a commuter like me and have no time to be fancy-shmancy.

YouTube Channel : thickglitter

These styles were based on the weather in my area which is in between summer and fall 65-75 degrees. Most of my clothes came from stores like fashionova, forever21, macys, and marshalls.

Please enjoy the video :3

Cotton Breeze – OOTD 8

Top: 5 & Below | Bottoms: Uniqlo | Bag: Dot Reeder

Transition outfits are definitely coming into effect whether we like it or not.. (sigh), BUT style doesn’t stop there !

Styling Tips:

  1. When wearing pants towards the end of summer, try to go for all linen or 100% cotton. You won’t be too hot, however covered up enough to enjoy a semi-cool breeze.
  2. Meditate, because fall and winter is coming so I know you’re going to be stressing a bit.
  3. Wide cotton or linen pants pairs best with a t-shirt, crop top or ripped jean cropped jackets to off balance the wide pants size and show off your waist. The pants forces the “hour glass” shape.
  4. For shoes, a platform sandal, flat sandal, wedge or heel works best. Bulky heavy boots will show an off balance of textures and sneakers that are not high tops is another alternative.

Until next time, Ashadah Austin

Crop & Skirt – OOTD 4

Its the first day of summer ! Lets start with something bright, fresh and new..

One of my favorite outfits with a different take on crops and skirts. Bringing out a very cool and collected summer vibe, showing off some skin and a hint of brightness at the same time !

Top: Forever 21, Skirt: Michael Kors, Bag: Dot Reeder.

Styling Tips: Summer Time

  1. When styling a black & white stripe skirt, use colors that will also brighten or enhance the skirt. (red, burgundy, orange, yellow, light blue, green)
  2. Use a solid color with no designs to add a chic element to your outfit, and experiment on accessories: Long earrings, gold, silver, gemstones, etc.
  3. Neutral bags are always your best choice when pairing it to a color combo. You don’t want the accessories to over power the outfit, but add an extra element to be cohesive altogether.
  4. Since its summer time, shoes of choice would be a cute flip-flop or neutral colored sandals (clear, nude, skin toned, or matching the accessory colors).

keep it simple, keep it cool
