One Simple Reason to give your Skinny Jeans a Rest

Work with me ladies.  I know that skinny jeans are one of the most beloved women’s fashion item, and I know that they do wonders for a woman’s curves and make our behinds look exquisite, but they are not the only option.  Take a look at what you’re missing if you limit yourself to skinny jeans.

311229_2288135768152_1564243_nSay hello to flare jeans, your long lost friend! This style will emphasize your lovely thighs and make your legs look deliciously long!  Here’s a cool trick you’ll love: keep your jeans a few inches too long and wear them with high heels.  When your flare jeans are just an inch off the ground and they hide your high heels, it will give the impression that your legs are much longer!

Flared jeans will hug you in all the right places! Get ones that are fitted through the butt and thighs, and then pick your desired level of flare!  From slightly flared to hellooooo bohemian goddess, you can’t go wrong! Try a pair of super faded flare jeans and watch how much leaner your legs will look!

So when is the best time to pull out your flared jeans?  The answer is…anytime! Whether you’re heading to the bar, a park, a friend’s house, a date, a concert, a festival, you can rock your look with a touch of flare!  Go casual with a basic tee, dress up with a silky top and jewels, go grunge with a plaid shirt, or go bohemian by pairing your flare jeans with a floral crop top!  Flare jeans can open up a whole new world for you if you just open your mind to them!

My favorite stores to find the best flared jeans are Farfetch, Free People, and Nasty Gal!  Check ’em out, your legs will thank you!

Love,

Outfit of the Day: Colorful Accessories

Normally you probably wouldn’t think to put bright pink and orange together in the same look. But when you’ve got basic chic black pieces working together with a pair of casual flare jeans, adding two bold colors will help make your look stand out in a crowd. These sky-high orange patent stilettos are guaranteed to make your look a showstopper.  The pink handbag, draped on your shoulders far away from your feet, will give the top half of your look the feminine color you’ll adore.

Outfit of the Day: Comfortable and Cozy Classics with a Twist

Today’s look is inspired by warm, soft and comfortable tones of cream, grey, beige, and brown. Fall is the season to embrace bulky knit sweaters, flare jeans, and suede booties.  While a pair of plain high heels booties may be enough to make you look well put-together, I say that the more unique the shoe, the better.  The Salvatore Ferragamo booties from Farfetch in the look below will take any look into a conversational piece!

What to Wear on Canada Day

It’s Canada Day! Some of you may be headed to a Canada Day party and thinking to yourself, what should I wear? You could be a walking stereotype and wear red and white…or you could diverge out onto your own path.  Or you may be thinking, I live in America…the celebration isn’t for another four days.  But whether you’re Canadian or not, there’s no reason why you can’t celebrate.

So here’s your guide to celebrating in style.  Before choosing your shirt/pants/dress, choose the alcohol of your choice.  Now that the most important decision is out of the way, let’s get down to styling tips.  If you’re going to be standing outside watching fireworks, it’s best to cover up so you don’t get eaten alive by mosquitos.  Throw on a pair of your favorite medium wash jeans (skinny or flair…either will work) just make sure they are not too long for you (#shortgirlproblems) because chances are you could be standing on grass or dirt while watching the fireworks.

Second, choose your top.  Cleavage is great…unless you’re a guy…showing man boobs is definitely not a good idea.  Just remember to bring a sweater because Summer weather isn’t always predictable at night.

Next, it’s time to pick your shoes wisely.  Wearing a pair of skinny heels may not be the best idea if you’re walking on grass because you’ll either be sinking into the grass every step you take, or walking on your tippy toes.  Then again, if want to keep your look stylish, heels are the way to go.  Try a pair of wedges because they will let you walk smoothly across any kind of surface…(even a table surface…depending on how crazy your celebration gets!)

Keep the wine flowing, the firecrackers cracking, and the s’mores roasting, and you’ll be in for a good night!

Wishing all of you the very best Canada Day!

Decoding Your Style Choices

When a woman wears a long maxi skirt, it means shut up and leave me the fuck alone.  When we wear short skirts it means, I’m in no mood to compromise my fashion choices just because you can’t keep it in your pants.  And wearing a short black dress at a bar means…hellooooo gentlemen.

When a woman wears a ponytail it means, WE MEAN BUSINESS!

Wearing a hair scrunchie in your luscious locks means you’re just fucking awesome.  Continue doing exactly what you’re doing.

If women straighten their hair, it means their still stuck in 2007.  You should tell them to get the fuck out.

If you’re still wearing Uggs, you shouldn’t be.  In fact, you never should have worn them in the first place.

And don’t even get me started on crocs…

Now comes the commonly misinterpreted part.  When women wear high heels it does NOT mean that they are trying too hard to look sexy for guys.  In fact it is sometimes quite the opposite.  It simply means we, as women, like to wear high heels because they are cute, and they make almost any outfit look a million times better, and they help our posture, and they make short people look like they have long legs, and they give us stellar sculpted calves, and they’re all around just fucking awesome.

When people wear those low one-inch booties or sandals it’s basically just a pathetic attempt to wear high heels.  Now, I don’t mean this in a bad way…I’m just simply saying that your dedication could be better.  Why not really commit?

If you’re wearing flare jeans it means you understand that skinny jeans are way overdone! Now, if you combine those flare jeans with high heels then you should probably insure your legs for a million dollars cause honey…they gonna look like your best asset!  Pair your killer bottom half with a V-neck cleavage-bearing top and you’re basically a fucking beer commercial…screw the short shorts and cut-off tee.  You may just end up having guys walking down the street asking you for beer…or asking you OUT for a beer.

If a girl is wearing a baseball cap she is either a) a tomboy b) trying to appear like a tomboy or one of the guys when she’s with her boyfriend and his friends, c) hiding from the paparazzi (the less common reason) or d) trying to cover up her bad hair day.  If she’s blonde, she’s probably trying to cover up a bad hair day or convince guys that she’s not high maintenance.  If she’s brunette, she could very well be part tomboy.  But we all know that even tomboys have a pussycat doll somewhere deep within them…

If people seem to wear or not wear a certain color or style very often it could stem from a variety of reasons.  For example, I rarely wear white because I don’t want to have a white load of laundry to do.  If I stick to colors and darks, I can do just one load! I like to think of this choice as simply being practical and efficient…It could also stem from my extremely low tolerance for boring stuff.  Why spend more time doing laundry when it’s so unnecessary?  I make one little sacrifice…don’t wear white…and I’m golden!  I suddenly have all this time on my hands to do other stuff like…like… like…happy hour, writing articles for this blog, and watching 2 Broke Girls!

Drink, dance, laugh, and love.

And may you never ever misinterpret the signs.

Love,

J. Molly
