Gearing up for a Super Bowl party this weekend?  You’re going to want to be comfortable in whatever you wear! Start by choosing a chill pair of jeans.  Whether you like the relaxed boyfriend fit or the skinny jean, choose a pair that are relaxed.  If you don’t have a sports jersey to wear, there are so many sporty shirt options.  Throw a warm, puffy jacket overtop, lace up your sneakers and you’re ready to go!

If you want a look that’s a little more dressy, wear your jeans with your cute low-heel black booties.  Take off your jacket to reveal a stylish poncho and matching scarf for a stylish, casual look.  Last but not least, don’t forget to cheer for your team when they score their touchdowns!

Nasty Gal also knows how to rework our modern day jeans.  A bit of acid-washing combined with some minor rips or a wide-legged silhouette makes these three jeans refreshingly innovative and a touch rocker!

The snow won’t seem so bad when you’re covered up in layers starting with a t-shirt under a button-down plaid shirt, and a leather jacket to top it off!

This week’s outfit of the week goes to a casual look featured on the Cella Jane blog. Becky put together a great winter look with a comfy and warm poncho overtop of a white long sleeve shirt. To get a casual and chic vibe she pairs the poncho with a pair of edgy ripped skinny jeans. Her accessories and shoes take this look to the next level! We love the black knee-high boots paired with the oversized black sunglasses. Her small, grey handbag complements the heather grey poncho perfectly because it’s not too flamboyant.  Looking to step up your street style?

You can never go wrong wearing a little black dress to your holiday parties. However, shopping for a little black dress can be a daunting task when there are so many different styles available. Although there are so many options, we’ve narrowed it down to six common styles to help you figure out which one best suits your taste! There’s the cut-out dress, the simple high-neck with a flare skirt, the spaghetti strap dress, the long-sleeve bodycon, the strapless bodycon, and the halter.

The cut-out dress is for the woman who’s fearless in her fashion choices. On the other end of the spectrum is the simple high-neck dress with a playful flare A-line skirt. A plain black cocktail dress can be dulled up with a fancy chunky necklace or a bold handbag to give it that extra bit of flavor you’re craving!

The spaghetti strap dress is a great option when you want to look sexy but you want a dress that won’t fall down when you’re dancing the night away! The halter dress will also keep you looking sexy on the dance floor. Ready to show off your beautiful shoulders and strong arms? The halter dress will do wonders making your upper body look great!

If you’re looking for more coverage and don’t want to bare it all in the cold weather, there are lots of long-sleeve dresses to choose from this winter. The one in the featured image is great because it incorporates one of the hottest trends this season: the tie-up plunge neckline.

While all of these styles are flattering in their own way, you can never go wrong with the classic strapless bandage dress. This kind of dress will show off your shoulders and accentuate your beautiful curves. Choose the classic strapless bodycon if you want to look effortlessly sexy!
