This week’s outfit of the week goes to a sophisticated and professional look featured on the Damsel in Dior blog. Jacey pairs blue wash skinny jeans with a white buttoned down blouse and matching white pointed-toe pumps. The blazer adds the professional touch that could turn your pair of jeans into workplace-acceptable attire. The black cat-eye sunglasses make the look even more bold and chic!

This Saturday as you’re getting ready to head to your friend’s house, the beach, the bar, or the park for a fun Fourth of July celebration, your style choices will be crucial! Of course, you could opt for a t-shirt with the American Flag on it, but honestly there are other ways you can do your Fourth of July outfit justice! An article on Popsugar gives us some clothing ideas that are both festive and stylish!
Wearing a loose-fitting striped dress will give you the comfort and style you want to look effortlessly chic. The J. Crew blue-and-white striped dress featured below can be paired with oversized sunglasses, a small cross-body bag, and a pair of colorful wedges for a trendy and practical look.
If you want to wear an outfit that features all three of the patriotic colors, there are many stylish ways to do it. Popsugar features an image of Taylor Swift effortlessly rocking a red, white, and blue outfit in style. Taylor Swift wears a white and blue striped dress, and brings red into the look with her accessories and lipstick. Once you’ve got your white and blue striped dress, there are many different ways to accessorize with red. You could add a red bag and red shoes like Taylor did, or perhaps opt for a red belt and a cool pair of red sunglasses instead.
If stripes are not your style, try wearing an all-white outfit with a short or maxi-length dress. Just make sure that if you’re going to a picnic, you sit on a blanket, not the grass! We all know it’s great to wear white in the summer, but it’s definitely not an easy color to keep clean and stain-free!
This Saturday when you’re all dressed up, take a picture of your look and post it on Instagram and/or Twitter with #StyleChatMobile. We want to see all of your lovely creations, and who knows, maybe your outfit will get featured on one of our Outfit of the Week posts!
