Sultry Simple Style!

Even good girls can do it!

Sultry Olivia Swiadek

Rock stars made faux fur, edy look famous. But torn fishnets and battered six-string aren’t prerequisites for the sexy, rock glam look.

Winter White and Blush

Model Olivia Swiadek

Even the most clean-cut can simply tone down the color (do it in blush or pure white) and rein in the faux fur stardom and the attitude. This all-winter, light-glam look flatters almost everyone. The make up should look natural, and hair should be down and free. This is a perfect night out look so skip heavy boots and instead wear nude sandals or pumps to keep the mood soft.

Why did I pick this particular jacket? Just when I thought I had the hemline thing down and that I possessed a certain eye for proportion, a new, hot silhouette that I suddenly can’t live without had appeared: the half jacket. Half the coverage, double the exposure :) That is if you like bare midriffs of course! While it looks like a slashed jacket, it most definitely isn’t. And I am in love!

Check out BCBG faux fur jacket that Olivia is wearing, it makes the white cropped trousers look that much racier. It would also look fierce with a tight skirt and top. So flaunt your assets- but don’t think that just because half the jacket is missing, it will cost half the price.

An unexpected crowd is usually enough to pause or even shut down the photo shoot that requires a little bit of focusing, especially when you are working with limited space. But while photographing models in the warm, velvety Chocoloate Lab in Bethlehem we were greatful for the gorgeous backgrounds and managed to work around the frequent crowds. Place gets really busy quick and we’re not surprised!

The New Rules Of Wearing White Jeans

You've got the "white denim after labor day" thing down. Here's how to take it to the next level

Great sunglasses will boost your confidence.

Do a classic white, distressed, ankle skinny jeans. White denim can be timeless and can be worn all year round.

The magic is in the mix. Bring on the colors and textures and have fun!

Practice your stride. Build your off-duty wardrobe on rag & bone's laid-back high-top sneakers which sport whip-stitched laces for an old-school feel.

Go for it! Soft cotton denim gives this button-front shirt a laid-back, versatile ease perfect for the workweek and weekend alike.

What goes best with bright white skinny jeans? A bomber jacket of course!

Try accessories: forget what you've heard about over accessorizing! Accessories are fun and flattering!

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.

Jean Jacket Style and Six Ways of Fading to White in Style!

Some great jean jacket styles are out there for you to try. Remember to skip boxy styles and create curves with a cinched-waist jacket this is especially great if you have a boyish build.

Pair your jacket with a sexy t-shirt or camisole and flirty scarf for a look that's flattering, feminine and very 2015.

All you need are comfortable flat Vans to finish the look.

Every woman should have at least one jacket that's a teeny bit tight across the chest. Zip or button it to just under the bustline, and let the rest of your jacket frame your chest for instant va-va-voom appeal!

Say no to oversize square-cut styles (that only works for blazers and coats come this Fall). Trade in your shapeless denim numbers for a shorter, sleeker version that doesn't overwhelm your frame, especially if you're petite.

Make this look evening-ready by adding strappy sandals and chandelier earrings. (and loosing the scarf)

SIX WAYS OF FADING TO WHITE IN STYLE

Prepare for a white out. This summer, style reaches new heights of sophisticated simplicity with clean, crisp white. Shed some light on your look with these six simple solutions for staying in style.

1. WHITE BAG

There is something so retro about a white leather bag. Racy and demure all at once, it works at any hour. It's polished and lady-like by day, but ideal for evening when the white really pops.

2. WHITE SUNGLASSES

Think big this summer. Oversized sunglasses are shading eyes everywhere. Choose white plastic frames that look great with a tan and complement your smile.

Colder Spring Days. Pink Chic: 5 Pink Spring Trends You'll Love!

Yet, another option for colder spring days from our chilly March photo-shoot.

More and more women are mixing destroyed denim jeans with cropped tops, denim shirts and leather biker jackets. You can also cuddle up in an extra soft, oversize turtleneck poncho.  

With Jamie’s look I think we got the balance right. The key to this look are multipurpose items that will give your wardrobe more mileage. And mileage is what most women are looking for anyways. Classic pieces that never go out of style.

Then, lest we forget, there’s the jewelry. Today it’s gold hoops, leather bracelets and watch.

Bag amped with rock & roll details- fringe and studs- turns up the volume on gutsy glamour.
