Wardrobe Necessity: The Leather Jacket

As the Winter days were finally coming to an end a couple of weeks ago, I finally decided to start my hunt for the perfect leather jacket. Late, I know. Looking at all the different varieties on the web was cool and all but there’s nothing like physically walking into a store and trying it on. (There are just somethings you cannot buy online without worrying about how it’ll fit.)

Now when I say I went on a hunt, I went on a hunt. I tried three different malls and finally found the perfect one as I was just about to give up. Wandering into American Eagle with the look of defeat, I rummaged through the racks to find not one leather jacket. The store manager could tell I was on a serious mission and asked if I needed help. I told him what I needed and went to the back. I prayed that this jacket wasn’t two things: hideous and/or super expensive.  He came back and said this was the last one and it was on clearance! *cue the choir of angels*  It was perfect! 

So I scored this baby for just $35, originally priced at $99.95 .

DIY | No Sew Cardigan

Spring is coming to an end and Summer will be here in a few short weeks. Looking for quick and easy ways to spruce up your wardrobe? Check out this quick and easy DIY cardigan, best part about it… No sewing required!

Step 1: Find fabric, preferably a knit for stretch. Width wise any thing 60″+ works well. For the length, if you are looking for a short, just above the knee cardi, go for 26″ or if you’d prefer something long and dramatic maybe 41″ works best. Also you’ll need a pair of scissors and a measuring tape.

Step 2: After making sure your fabric is 60″ across, fold it in half. Measure 6 inches in from the fold and make a mark, and measure 5.5″ or 6″ down from the top of the fabric, and make another mark. This is for where you are going to cut out your arm holes.

Step 3: At this time your marks should overlap or have a common center point. Find that center and cut a slit 8 inches long, then give it a nice tug and that’s it!

Be sure to pull on the raw edges of your fabric. This way the ends curl for a nice finish.

Style tip: Pair with a belt just around the waist for a nice gathered look.

The Ombre Effect

Spring is here, and Summer is just around the corner!

Bright colors ranging from pastels to neons seem to be sweeping the nation, not just by color blocking though. But by the Ombré effect that is. What is ombré?  Ombré is a dye technique in which articles of clothing are suspended  or dipped a pool of dye, allowing the color to slowly make its way up into the fabric.  The result is a soft, natural look with hues fading from dark to light… and a great way to add some gorgeous color to your wardrobe.

Here are some great examples:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Don’t be afraid to mix dark and light colors to your ombré effect! Adding some pretty chic studs or spikes would be the perfect finishing touch.
