Harem pant

Harem pants are very wide legged at the top and tapper down at the ankle that have the classic middle eastern style that is both unique and stylish. Harem pants usually have a relax feel about them, they are comfy and do not restrict your movement. You can still pull these pants and show an impression of elegance and high style. Harem pants might not be for everyone, and pretty much everyone will look like they are wearing a diaper while wearing these pants. Of course these pants work best with tall and slimmer figures,but if you are not, don't worry; done right with proper fitting, you can still pull off this exotic look.
Thicker, more structured fabrics like cotton or linen will flatter your body more than a thin fabric like silk or Lycra. Wear then with simple tops like tank tops or long button down shirts. If the weather gets colder, you can pair them with sweaters or cropped jacket. The main point is that the overall look will be more stylish if you are keeping it as simple as possible. Highlight your waist to balance out the bulk that comes from the harem pants. Tuck tops into your pants and wear thin belts to emphasize your small waist.

Heels are a must if you want to wear harem pants. Heels make your legs look longer, helping balance the harem pants tendency to make legs look short. I would suggest a high chunky heel for this pants. When the overall look is edgy and bulky, a thin pin heel might just be too light for the look. Lastly, simplify the jewelry. I chose a vintage gems necklace and that's all I needed.

Feeling exotic in Python Lita

Exotic animal-skin print has been very popular in these couple of seasons. For this Fall, I have to say snakeskin print is the must have to step out in high style. Don't get me wrong, I am not encouraging you to go buy anything made with real snakeskin that cost a fortune. I myself do not support using real animal skin on anything, it's too cruel! And why do we want to put something on our body that we know the previous "owner" of the skin had to suffer and die? I think man made imitations are the real thing in fashion. A lot of man made exotic prints are gorgeous and let alone they probably cost 10% of what the real skin costs. This is my new exotic man made sole python lita from Jeffrey Campbell. With the chunky and super high heels, these lita yells "Exotic and Sexy"! Hold your thought on how to walk in these high heels because they are super comfy and easy to walk. I even ran and chased my dog in this lita yesterday.

Maxi dress

I believe every girl or lady has at least one maxi dresses. They can be worn to formal or informal occasions. These romantic, flowing and printed dresses are chic, sexy, stylish and comfortable. By little changes of accessories, you can wear maxi dresses from day to evening. Oh, other than day to evening, formal to informal, they also go from hot weather to cold weather. On high temperature summer, wear it simple with no layer, a pair of flat sandals and you are good to go. When weather turns cold, layer with sweater, cardigan or coat and you can make it super stylish! This is my first maxi dress and I had it for years. I'm in love with the silhouette, the color of green and of course, the print! It's so pretty that any accessories are too much for it. Another great thing about maxi dress is that anyone will look good in it. No matter what kind of body shape, size you have, they will hide any "flaws" and make you look amazing.

Edgy + Preppy = Sunday Prep

What happens when preppy and edgy get combined? It becomes the most interesting style ever! Both styles are far apart from each other. One is traditional, classic, and formal; the other is fierce, cool yet different. Since I love both edgy and prep, I decided to combine both these awesome styles into one. Even though I want to combine these looks, having an equal number of items for both styles can confuse the look. Always have a main style in a look. I'm using prep as my basic look. Preppy attires I have on include button down shirt dress, argyle sweater, and puffy shoulder blazer. Now I'm ready to add some edgy into the outfit. I've put on an over knee high boot, and combine a pearl necklace with long multi-chains necklace for some edgy touch. The right accessories can really help show the style you want to accent. Wait, before I got ready to step out from the house, let's put on a wide-brimmed hat! Rain or shine, full coverage chapeaus are easily incorporated into a fall look. Moreover, it's super stylist and chic!

Lux Tux

The ladies Lux Tux, fashion borrowed from the men is on trend alert this Fall. This men inspiration trend has been making its come back for the last couple of years, but it is at an all time high this Fall because lots of designers have perfecting the cuts of the tux. A lot of people are talking about the fit and cut as being the key to pull this look of. Maybe a pair of statement heels will help you make a statement. But I also like the oversize men-inspired suit. The looseness of the suit is careless yet modern and chic. I've paired it with a statement trouser. Lux tux can be a little too masculine without some statement pieces, therefore I have this very eye-catching trouser on in order to light up the look.

I heard people tell me that they love the look but with several reasons they cannot buy the items I showed in my blog. Come on everybody, fashion blogs are not business websites that sell wardrobes! Maybe there's some with links that you are able to check out online and buy, but the main purpose of fashion blogs is to share ideas and hopefully to inspire you in how to wear certain pieces or certain looks. Most pieces on my outfits are old items in my closet and I am pretty sure you might have the same kind in yours too. There is no point to copy the look 100%, add some different print, different cutting. Put on your own idea and that's what fashion all about, rule over the trend!
