Dress up your sneakers

Nothing gets between our loves with towering high heels for a little more confidence except for the letter painful with a capital P. Luckily, sneakers are trending strongly right now and we’ve noticed that they’re being worn with literally everything from skirts, tutu skirts and dresses.

If you spent your childhood in a pair of Converse or even Nike, you are no stranger to the idea that sneakers can be more than just comfort wear as they can make a style statement. But, melding the feminine look of a flirty dress with a knock-around pair of trainers has been a no-no until now. We bet you never expected that pairing sporty shoes and skirt or dress was actually a big NO!! But surprise, it’s a very big YES right now ladies!

Feminine frocks, sexy sheaths, and sporty skirts can all work when paired with just the right footwear. And not only will you earn major style points for thinking outside the box, but your feet will be blister free. (sigh of relief!!!)

One of the more popular looks if you opting for the very girly-girly look is pairing your sneakers with a tutu skirt, yes a tutu skirt! It’s not just for ballerinas as this fashion trend has finally come out of the studio and hit the streets!

Ok ladies, you may be gasping right now and think WHAT?? But just hold on… Tutu skirts were made famous by non-other than Carrie Bradshaw from the infamous movie Sex and The City.

5 ways to style your boyfriend jeans

Cover

The thing about boyfriend jeans is that, more often than not, they seem pretty one-dimensional. No matter what you pair them with, the effect seems largely the same which is a bit masculine, a bit undone, slouchy, and not very stylish. Which is great but no matter how much we love them they can start to become a little bit (dare we say it)… boring?

But all hope is not lost ladies! There are ways to recreate the wheel here. In fact, we’ve come up with five totally genius ways to wear boyfriend jean that we guarantee you haven’t thought of. It takes a bit more innovation to pull off these styling tricks.

Just like an outfit doesn’t need sky-high heels to be sexy, a pair of appropriately styled boyfriend jeans can look just as hot as skinny jeans do. In other words ladies, you can opt for comfort, and still look like a total babe.

Here are some ensembles that show just how easy it is to make your boyfriend jeans look attractive.

1. DENIM ON DENIM:

You can’t go wrong with pairing your denim boyfriend jeans with a denim top. It doesn’t have to completely match depending on the shade/wash of your jeans you can opt for either lighter wash tone tops or darker or even two toned. You can style your top by tucking it in loosely or completely tucked in with a thin belt. Some boyfriend jeans are ripped and cut, so you can style it with a plain denim top or t-shirt so that your focal point remains on the jeans. See which style you fancy most and feel comfy with.

1.WRAP UP A BLANKET SCARF:

Are you in with the latest scarf trend? Blanket scarves are my favourite scarf trend yet. They are chunky, cozy, crazy cute and they make a great pick me up on any basic outfit ladies. A massive scarf bundled around your face and neck plus a statement accessory is a sure-fire way to liven up your tired basic look with a major dose of print and colour. I mean, wearing a giant blanket in public and still look stylish sounds like a pretty fabulous idea.

There are quite a few ways to wear these expansive scarves, and I will highlight a few of my favourites

  • The “normal” way: This is just your average every-day way to wear a scarf. Because blanket scarves are a bit thicker than normal scarves ladies, it will take a bit getting used to and can be a bit tricky to tie at first
