By the end of every weekend, there’s usually a pile of clothes on the floor and a stack of jewelry on the dresser.  Yes, you probably know exactly what I mean.  When preparing for fun nights out, a closet can get exponentially messier as you sift through the good, the bad, and the beautiful.

This weekend it’s time to make your life simpler.  Start by picking out your very chic little black dress.  Step 2: Accessorize with gold rings and gold earrings and pull out the purse that matches!

While a little black dress and stilettos are really all you need to look glamorous, adding a touch of pink lipgloss won’t hurt!

To design your own stylish look for the weekend, download the StyleChat app and create looks with items from your closet or online!  Trying to pick out your outfits alone can be frustrating.  Share your looks with friends on the app.  We all know you have great style, but it never hurts to get a friend’s opinion! Style, share, then wear! StyleChat makes looking chic easy!

Happy Friday!

Back to School Style Inspirations

It’s that time of year again: the time when you slowly transition from summer vacation to your studies. Whether you’re in high school, undergrad, or graduate school, September is your month to get your mind back in the game! Why not do it in style? Teen Vogue and Refinery 29 have given us some back to school style inspirations to guide our looks!

The consensus reveals that preppy looks are still in style! Whether you like casual or dressy, here’s how you can achieve a stylish and preppy back to school look! Throw on your favorite blue-washed flare jeans, your bright-colored t-shirt and your favorite flat metallic loafers.

If you’d rather dazzle your friends and professors with a fancier look, we’re all for rocking a frilly and/or pleated mini-skirt! Pair the miniskirt with a button-down blouse to give your look a professional touch.

If you really want to turn some heads as you’re walking down the hallways, add a cropped moto jacket to your outfit. Whether you’re wearing jeans or a skirt, a colorful moto jacket will take your look to the next level by adding that extra touch of chicness!

For a book bag, stay away from the typical multi-colored knapsacks. Instead, opt for a cool solid-colored leather knapsack purse with a cool buckle or drawstring. These smaller, stylish bags can double as a book bag and a purse!

For shoes, we’re seeing so many hot trends surfacing this fall, including the metallic loafer, the patent oxford, and the pointed-toe mini high heel pump. Take your pick! Try silver, gold, black, or beige if you want versatile shoes that will match with a variety of your outfits!

Wearing White in Winter

A great Refinery 29 article talks about the pro’s and con’s of wearing white in the winter.  Sure, it probably looks great when you see models wearing it in the magazines, or people wearing it on Instagram, but is it really practical?

Ana Colon, writer for Refinery 29 points out the stress that a spilled coffee or dinner date at an Italian restaurant could cause you when you’re sporting a white outfit.  However, there’s nothing like a great white dress or a pair of white skinny jeans to freshen up your day.  Don’t wait until the spring season to wear your favorite white apparel.

Whether you’re hanging out with friends on the weekend, or going to work, white can enhance your look in so many ways.  In the image featured below Aimee Song rocks a white fringe lace dress.

If you’re more into a fun layered look, try wearing white overtop of a colored bralette with a jacket thrown overtop.

Last but not least, try creating a business casual look by combining a white blouse with a black skirt or a pair of black pants.

If you’re going to experiment with white apparel, have fun adding colored accessories into the mix.  A bold-colored handbag or a chunky necklace can be perfect additions to a white outfit.  Check out the StyleChat app to search for the hottest white garments in stores now.
