How to... Wear Your Cutoffs this Summer!

Every season is the newest, the most exciting, and filled with endless possibilities. Your next bold and trendy outfit featuring super sexy cutoffs could be: gorgeous, unconventional or wildly sporty.

Jessica's look is Glam but still very outdoorsy! We decided to put on a leggy display (and it's never a bad idea to show a little leg!) in edgy True Religion denim shorts and a red, stripy shirt as she stepped out for an AFP photoshoot, shot by John Rounds. 
We love anything that's feminine so we gave this look a feminine twist thanks to the denim blazer and subtle details.

Ladylike blazer?

What's making our hearts go pitter-patter? As fancy as it looks, this season's denim blazer by J.Crew is wear-everywhere (day or night), with-everything (jeans or satin).

How can we look good in a blazer? It's easy! Just remember these three simple rules: Think curvy, not corporate; girly, not giant; and fun, not frumpy.

Short Shorts

It's almost Summer, so naturally that certain adventurous freedom is in the air. When it comes to fashion, that means the perfect excuse to act on a style crush- a piece so utterly cool, pretty or just right that resisting it is simply out of the question.Distressed denim shorts give summer's new look a street-wise vibe that's not so innocent. Been a while since you had shorts this short? Try these slightly longer versions:

Tops

New infatuations: This Summer's tops are a little dressier than the standards you've seen before and stripes will send your style in the right direction.

Getting dressed up like this doesn't have to be such a major production - just jazz up what you wear during the day.

Jessica is very natural and very feminine. She makes this outfit look effortless.

To compliment and make this look even more classic Jessica wears nude pumps by Franco Sarto and crossbody bag by Ted Baker.

This is what I call preppy, hip and sexy!

What kind of jacket should you wear with a snap front mini skirt?

I recommend a short quilted zip front jacket option. All you need now: a fun crop top and hot wedge platform sandals.

On the bottom, wide skirts complement a short, boxy jackets: this front snaps skirt gets an update with an adorable scalloped hem.

Adding texture- in Burberry Brit fall jacket- lifts the look into multiple-compliment territory. To look dapper keep the jewelry accessories minimal. Squared-off flat handbag or clutch should telegraph smart elegance. Low heel mules would be another great option but with a skirt, stick to higher wedge platforms.

For Jamie's make up: Definitely less is more! And our precious model gets away with using very little. Because of her luminous skin, we stick with earthy tones: gold, brown, caramel, bronze.

With each shoot, she just gets prettier.

Don't you agree that these Loewe sunglasses make this look noticeably more interesting? Black and blue make wonderful wardrobe builders; they're easy to mix and match, and they're especially stylish when you stir in a little rusty gold details or a touch of darker metallic blue like the Whistles clutch.

Splurge only on standouts since you'll be using them all season long.

Crisp white sweaters, dresses and jackets are the ultimate winter signature wear this season. I love white paired with gray and silver. Here I decided to go for a little bit of Aspen chic meets Anthropologie boho.

WEEKLY PLANNER

It’s easy to fall into a regularity of wearing the same thing every day. To revive up our melancholy for this week, I looked to the street and newest trends for elegant, easy style inspiration. Consider the seven looks below my pre-planned, hassle-free attires for the week.  When I decide what to wear I first pick one inspirational piece- a T-Shirt, shoes, bag or earrings, I style around it my entire outfit. It can be a very creative and fun process...
