Maria Menounos’ Money-Saving Fashion Style Tip

Maria Menounos saves money by getting her cheapest clothes tailored to look expensive.

The host of Extra told our friends at The Cut, “The difference between high-end and low-end is literally fabric and fit, and fabric has come such a long way that you can get great fabric. So now we get to fit. What I’ll do is, I’ll go to Target and I’ll get a cute shirt, and it doesn’t really fit right. So I’ll take it to a tailor and for $ 4 or $ 5 they tailor it to my body and now it looks amazing, and people never know the difference.”

Will you be taking this tip from Maria and hit up a tailor to make low-end pieces look high-end with the right fit?

Get Bar Rafaeli and Minka Kelly Style and Look

Wear ‘em now. Wear ‘em later. Colored denim is as hot for winter as it is for spring and summer. Pair your colorful skinnies with a studious gray blazer and black booties for a streetwise and ladylike look, just like Bar Rafaeli. And when the temperatures rise, take a cue from Minka Kelly and pair the same pair, or a playful pastel pair, with a fresh white tee and nude flats. Another look we love? Colorblocking your denim with bold stripes of similar or contrasting colors and a colorful pair of pumps.

Now: Bar Rafaeli

1. Rich & Skinny Legacy Jeans in Rad Red ($121)
Go bold or go home. Take on the streets with a fire engine red pair of skinnies. These siren-worthy jeans pair perfectly with blacks and grays, just like Rafaeli wore them. Faux front pockets and super stretch denim ensure a second skin fit.

2. Pencey Warrior Blazer ($264)
Let your colored denim do the talking. This gray blazer pulls together your colorful look with sophistication and style. Two-tone blazer with black sleeves, collar, and stitching.

3. Rag & Bone Kenton Platform Booties ($550)
Finished with fierceness. These sleek black suede booties punctuate your colorful stems with confidence and class. Finished with exposed zippers and tassel pulls.

Later: Minka Kelly

4. Current/Elliott The Ankle Low Rise Skinny Jeans ($198)
Pastel perfection. Current/Elliott’s lovely lilac skinnies pair well with whites, cremes, grays, and nudes, making them a natural selection for springtime. Stretch denim gives a smooth, sultry silhouette.

5. WILT Slub Shrunken Banded Long Sleeve Top ($107)
Simple springtime. Pair this fresh white tee with your colored skinnies for Minka’s laid back celebrity style. Raw cut edges and extra seam detailing make this wardrobe staple anything but basic.

6. Chloe Crinkle Edge Cut Flat ($450)
For those times when bare feet aren’t an option, these nude flats are the next best thing. A completely neutral nude color is accented by a playful crinkle edge and ballerina-inspired round toe.

Get Olivia Palermo Look for Less and Steal Her Style

Actress, model, blogger, and all-around fashionista. Olivia Palermo knows her stuff, as well as her style. Walking the red carpet in an understated look, we decided to steal her celebrity style for our own…and we mean that quite literally. “Stealing” her style with affordable pieces, we’ve recreated this look that can walk right off the red carpet and onto the streets. Pair a sleek pair of dark, refined skinny denim with layers: a gold top, white cardi, fuzzy fur vest, and army jacket. Finish with a tidy tote and a killer pair of black bootie heels for a fabulously chic, yet accessible look.

1. Elizabeth and James Mercy Suede Platform Booties ($262)
Killer heels. These black booties are anything but basic, but they go with virtually everything in your closet. Pairing on-trend platforms with a classic suede bootie, these heels are finished with a lace-up strap and hidden back zipper.

2. Z Spoke Zac Posen Americana Satchel ($425)
A girl who’s got it all together needs a tote that shows off her with-it-ness. Clean lines in rich lamb leather, this satchel traverses the seasons with its seasonless gray color and timeless lines. Carry for work or play, its roomy interior works for all occasions.

3. DL1961 Kate Slim Straight Leg Jean ($168)
Red carpet-worthy denim, these DL1961 jeans are beyond basic…they are must-have! Their straight cigarette legs pair with pumps or booties, while their ultra dark wash works with as much versatility as a black pant.

4. Mongolian Shearling Vest ($99)
Jacket optional. For those days when a coat’s not necessary, a vest does double duty: warmth and style. This fur and leather combo works over anything from a maxi dress to a pair of flared denim…or pair under a jacket for an extra layered look like Palermo’s.

5. Urban Renewal Vintage French Combat Jacket ($59)
Military must. The combat coat, that little green jacket, has been spotted everywhere this year. It’s the perfect between seasons outerwear. Layer in a little neutral color while giving off a pleasantly vintage appeal. Zippers, pockets, and cuff-able hems for an authentic look.

Steal Jessica Alba’s Style

 

The freshness of spring, the sensibility of winter. Jessica Alba’s look is the perfect one for that transitional time between seasons. We’re longing for bright colors during the winter doldrums, so her striped tank and Kelly green blazer are a welcome burst of color on a gray day. And although Alba’s look is full of springtime color, the coverage of the blazer and dark wash of her flared denim ensure that her outfit is winter appropriate. Finished with a funky wedge, this outfit is a playful, yet mature take on streetwear. Steal Jessica Alba’s style with these transitional pieces:

1. Alice + Olivia Savannah Platform Wedge ($295)
Perhaps the only non-transitional piece, these sandal wedges are for West Coasters and Southerners now, but perfect for Northerners on spring break. Bring on the bling with these gold foil-covered platforms and patent leather straps.

2. J Brand Kiki Flare in Monaco ($127)
Fabulous flares. The dark, rich hue of this Monaco wash will take you through any season, but especially from winter to spring. J Brand’s Kiki jean is an amazing flare with a high rise to show off your curves and a long, belled leg for a true throwback vibe.

3. BB Dakota Auburn Striped Tank ($48)
Stunning stripes. Pair with cut-offs for summer, but layer it up now. This tank shines with its sateen finish and sexy crossover back panel. Laid-back luxe at its finest, this tank goes from beach to brunch.

4. Alice + Olivia Elysee Blazer ($367)
A bold blazer is a great way to liven up a winter wardrobe. Layer over a tank and jeans for Jessica Alba’s chic street look, or bring it to the office with a trouser and button up. Classic cut with notched collar, front flap pockets, and one-button closure.

Color Style: How To Create a Sexy Navy Look


 

As basic as black but with a fresh-faced edge for spring, navy is the new neutral. It’s nautical by nature, but navy is as modern as can be when paired with this season’s pieces. We love it as a topper: a cardigan or a classic peacoat keeps you warm as fashion transitions into spring. We bring it to the office: a grown-up blouse or sleek dress. We take it to the weekend: a glittery flat, a striped top. And we adore it for the beach, its home sweet home, in a striped espadrille and sleek pair of shades.

Outerwear:

1. Rag & Bone Navy V-neck Cardigan ($300)
Preppy, polished, and a wardrobe staple, this Rag & Bone cardigan will take you into spring. Cute cardigan style with a boyfriend flair. Wear over anything from work week to weekend.

2. Burberry London Navy Addiscombe Double-breasted Short Coat ($1200)
It doesn’t get any better than Burberry. An investment in style, this classic peacoat features logo buttons, a slim cut with trim shoulders, and deep envelope front pockets.

Office:

3. Alice + Olivia Victoria Peplum Dress ($264)
Can’t you see Victoria Beckham or Kate Middleton working this dress? Its crisp, classic lines are made modern with its deep blue hue, exposed back zipper, and ruffled peplum. Wear it by day and work it for drinks, too.

4. Vince Night Blue Silk Top ($340)
Tuck it into a pencil skirt for work, then layer it with skinnies for weekend. This deep navy silk top works so many ways, bringing elegance to life with its clean lines. Tunic length with slightly longer back hem for bum coverage.

Weekend:

5. Rag & Bone Red/Creme Navajo Striped T-shirt ($110)
They go hand-in-hand. Few things are as classic as navy and stripes. This one gets a dose of red, too, making it an all-American t-shirt. Short, cuffed sleeves and a slimming, long length. Pair with everything from a skirt to skinnies.

6. Marc by Marc Jacobs Silver and Navy Glitter Mouse Ballerina Flats:
Weekend adorable. It’ll be hard to leave these behind come Monday, but these mouse-embellished slippers don’t have to leave your feet all weekend long. Add some sparkle to a simple pair of jeans with these glitter flats.

Beach:

7. Soludos Barca Striped Flat Espadrilles ($36)
The espadrille is everywhere this season! Summer’s take on flats, these wide blue nautical stripes belong at the beach. Comfy canvas with raffia footbed and rubber sole.

8. Tory Burch T Logo Sunglasses ($149)
Shades worthy of a celebrity. Tory Burch brings her signature style to this pair of sunglasses with enameled logo accents at temples, two-tone construction, and gradient lenses.

Sidewalk Style – Lady Gaga In Vintage Chanel

Sidewalk Style – Lady Gaga In Vintage Chanel

After Lady Gaga’s performance in Times Square on New Year’s Eve, she was spotted leaving the stage wearing a Chanel suit.

The gold suit embroidered with multi-colour crystals is from the Chanel Prêt-à-Porter Autumn/Winter 1996-97 collection.

From the picture below, the suit was originally presented with a gold belt, but Gaga opted for a black suede Chanel belt with gold medallions.

Vintage Prada sunglasses, yet another pair of Christian Louboutin ‘Daffodile’ pumps, this time in gold, and a Chanel Mademoiselle bag completed her look.

I much prefer the original belt with this suit.

What do you think?

Rihanna was spotted leaving the Soirage hotel in Miami, Florida on New Year’s Eve working a luxe sporty look.

She paired a white sleeveless top with Alexander Wang Starter colour-block shorts from the Resort 2012 collection.

Her accessories included shades and perfectly colour co-ordinated Alexander Wang ‘Chloe’ colour-block sandals(AlexanderWang.com).

Aside from the shoes, the other signs that Rihanna wasn’t headed to the gym were her gold jewelry, red lips and nails.

I love how comfortable and easy this look is.
