Two weeks ago I attended NYFW for the first time!  I was so excited when I received an invitation to view Yuna Yang’s F/W 2017 collection.  The show took place at the Gotham Comedy Club in Chelsea, Manhattan.  The clothes were absolutely stunning and it was so thrilling to be a part of the experience.  The feeling of walking down the street and seeing tons and tons of other bloggers and fashion lovers coming together in one place is indescribable.  Possibly just as beautiful as the runway ensembles were those of the attendees.  Many showed up having had their hair and makeup professionally done and the outfits were GORGEOUS.

The collection itself was titled ‘Lights in the Shadow’ and the clothes were really on point with my personal style.  There were lots of feminine pieces with lace and velvet including some printed dresses, beaded camisoles and floral bombers.  Light pieces were mixed with darker ones for a concept that “light shines brighter than darkness”.  One of my favorite looks featured a lace trench coat with matching lace pants.

You can see the full show in the video below!

Confession: I’ve really never met a pair of ripped jeans that I didn’t like.  Frayed denim is fun and eye-catching, and with the right pairings, can take any blah outfit from ordinary to exciting.  That’s why I’ve rounded up a few of the best style tips for wearing distressed denim.  There are no set in stone rules ever when it comes to fashion, but this is how I personally like to wear them and I hope that it gives you some ideas.  Get ready to get the most out of your not-so-basic jeans!

Tip #1: Add some contrast.

Soften the ruggedness with some feminine pieces.  In this particular look I chose to wear my pointed heels to give it that girly touch.

Tip #2: Wear a non-flowy top.

Distressed denim tends to have a slouchy look so I usually like to wear a tight top with it.  I find this makes the look appear more put together.  This one I’m wearing is actually just an inexpensive thermal from Old Navy.  They are SO cheap, look great with everything and are really warm in the winter.

Tip #3: Layer on more textures.

In this case I chose to add my faux shearling vest.  Layering different types of fabric to an already textured look gives it that instant glam factor (and is perfect for the fall and winter months).

Tip #4: Accessorize.

For even more glam add some sparkly accessories.  In this look my accessories were very minimal with simple rhinestone studs and a crossbody bag, but adding a statement necklace or some other bold pieces would really take it to the next level!

Tip #5: Don’t forget a bright lipstick!

I love to further accessorize with makeup.  Wearing a fun lipstick can add color where you are lacking (such as in this look where everything was very muted).  It’s often understandable that you don’t want to go color crazy with already crazy looking jeans (although sometimes I do).  A lipstick is a great way to add color without going overboard.

I’ve linked a whole bunch of really inexpensive distressed boyfriend jeans similar to the ones I’m wearing below like this one and this one so grab a pair for yourself!

What are your favorite style tips for distressed jeans?

Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend!  I’m so excited about today’s post because it marks the start of a new series here on the blog.  I don’t know about you guys, but I have always been obsessed with “Get the Look” and “Look for Less” posts.  I think they are so much fun and a great way to recreate emerging trends and celebrity looks when you don’t have a lot of $ to spend.  I truly believe that you don’t have to wear expensive things to look/be fashionable and I think these kind of posts are proof of that.  Not only so, but I think trying a different look out can be so inspiring and really helps to push you out of your comfort zone.  I want this series to be something a little different for you guys and that’s why I don’t want to limit it to just trends and celebrity looks.  If you like a character’s look from a particular t.v. show, movie, music video, really anything you can think of I would love to hear your ideas!  🙂

Now on to this particular look – When I saw this picture of Zendaya wearing denim on denim, I instantly fell in love.  It’s so effortlessly chic and takes me back to Britney Spears circa 2001 in the best kind of way.  What I really like about this style is that it almost looks like the top and bottom are one piece like a jumpsuit.  Add some black accessories and a red lip and you’re good to go!  As I was mentioned before, you don’t have to break the bank to recreate this look.  This top was $15 at Forever 21!

Happy Tuesday!  Now that it’s spring and the weather is finally warming up I’m taking any and every excuse to get out of the house and in the sun.  With all of the pretty lattes and fancy donut excursions that I’ve been on recently (see on my Instagram @theinspirationcloset​), I’ve needed some fun outfits to go with them.  That’s why I’m allover this leopard and hot pink combo right now.  The blazer is so fun and bright, while the pants and top are muted for a nice contrast.  Hope everyone is having a good week so far!

Happy Monday!  Things are finally starting to warm up around here which means that it’s time to break out the trench coat!  I got this one from Zara during one of their big sales and I love the way it curves to your figure rather than being boxy like some others that I’ve tried.

Tip: A quick fix for a trench coat with a long belt is to tuck it under itself.  it’s both functional and looks fashion forward!  Have a great week everyone!
