Menswear Inspired Casual Workwear

Menswear Trend, Top Atlanta Blogger, Atlanta Personal Stylist

There’s just something swagalicious about a stylish man. I mean what’s not to like about a man who takes pride in how he looks. It’s eye catching to see a guy who is fashion forward and not afraid to show it.  So for today’s look I’m totally borrowing a little style inspo from the boys, again.

Typically when I’m putting a look together, I start with one item I want to wear, then build the rest of the look from that item.  What inspired this look and what happens to be the centerpiece is the necktie.  It just pulls the whole ensemble together. 

About four years ago I thrifted this blue blazer and it may or may not be too small.  Either way I’m going to continue to wear it until I burst out of it like I’m the incredible hulk. Finding such a blazer with the perfect cut for me ain’t easy (on account that I have short arms).  I’m also digging the vintage vibes this blazer gives off. 

In keeping with the theme of the look, I paired this tri-colored striped tie with a light blue/white striped button down shirt.  Wanting to maintain the lady factor to this look, I decided on a pair of fitted distressed jeans (I could have also gone with a solid or printed pair of trousers) to show off my slim-thick curves and thangs. 

To complete the look, after playing around with what shoes to wear I ended up going with these burgundy oxfords I scored many moons ago.  And last but not least, I finally got a chance to wear this vintage messenger bag (although the only thing in it for this pic was my phone and mine and Kaylin’s keys – Ha).

Now go forth and dress amazingly!!!

If I Were Going To NYFW, I'd Wear These JustFab Booties

Melodie Stewart, The Style Klazit, NYFW, New York Fashion Week, Atlanta style blogger, Justfab shoes, Silver booties, thrifted fashion

Part of me is thinking, it's Wednesday already!  But the other part is thinking, 'What do you mean it's only Wednesday!' I guess I shouldn't complain since I didn't have to set my alarm this past Monday.  But still...

Guess what starts tomorrow?  New York Fashion Week.  I know this because up and down my Instagram feed I'm seeing a few of my fave style bloggers prepping for this major fashion event.  While I'm not attending this year, that doesn't mean that I can't dress as if I were.

New York is a fabulous city, which is why I was wonderstruck on my first visit.  For starters it is just like it is on TV.  The coolest part was that on any given corner, subway ride, restaurant visit or cross walk you are bound to encounter a walking fashion statement.  These people are serious about style.  

Most intriguing was that a lot of women wore heels.  I'm not talking about the little kitten heels that's trying to make a comeback, I'm talking about 3+ inch heels.  So when JustFab sent me these Madelina BootiesI was like heck yeah!  These would be perfect for NYFW

Right on trend, metallics are in my friend.  And with fall right on our backs, these booties are perfect to help you transition into the next season.  They are surprisingly comfy and fierce all at the same time.  Since I can't make it to NY this time, I can not wait to walk the streets of Atlanta in these silver beauties.    

*Quick story... When I was shooting this look a mom and dad with their young son walked by and the little guy was like, "Mommy look at those cool shoes!  Can wear those?!?!"

The Madelina Bootie in silver is definitely worth adding to your shoe collection.  Also linked (HERE) are other trendy metallic options from JustFab

5 Simple, Yet Cool Ways To Nail The White-T Trend

If you don't have a white tee in your wardrobe, shame on you!  It's hands down one of the easiest item of clothing to keep in your closet.  It's literally a classic and super comfortable.  To date I probably have at least 10 different white tee's.  While I'm only giving you 5 really easy ways to style this closet staple, the possibilities are endless.

Pairing a slightly longer tee over some distressed denim with a colorful blazer and a killer pair of heels for a street glam look is everything, right?  And if you want to be super cool, try tucking in the front of your shirt.    

In some cases a V-neck tee is so much better than a regular crew neck.  Why?  They make you look a lot cooler - wink, wink!  But really it's only a matter of personal preference.  V-necks can give your look a little sex appeal.  

Dressing down a fancy bottom with a white tee is not as hard as it may seem.  Whether you're sashaying around town in a shiny gold sequin skirt or an all black leather mini; with your statement accessories and a bad girl attitude... You've now become the IT girl! 

While I'm not a huge fan of crop tops, they are so cute.  They can be worn with so many different pieces in an array of styles.  And before you completely write off not wearing them, give it a try.  I'm pretty sure there's a way for you to shine in a crop.   

Graphic tee's can directly express who you are without you even having to open your month.  What better way to make a statement then to "say it with ya chest" - Kevin Hart  Don't be afraid to sub out a plain white tee and go for the way cooler graphic tee.

Distressed Jeans + Embroidered Sailor Blazer

Melodie Stewart, The Style Klazit, Atlanta blogger, Atlanta Stylist, Atlanta street style

Hey! hey! hey!  I dropped two posts in one day, ayyeee!  Read the other one here.

As a thrifter, I often times struggle with paying regular price for new items.  Not that I'm cheap or frugal as I'd like to call it.  It's just that I've found so many unique pieces at the thrift stop for little to nothing, I've been spoiled by resale price points.  But every now and then, I come across a piece that I'm willing to stretch my pockets to get.  When one of my fave Atlanta style bloggers Monica of AwedbyMonica debuted her look here , I had to have it.  I won't lie, when I first saw the price I was like - heck no!  Guys, it was only like $45.  I know, I know! And to think, I pay more than that for shoes.  Needless to say, I bought it.

Men's Inspiration + Silver Oxfords

Melodie Stewart, The Style Klazit, Atlanta style blogger, Atlanta stylist, Men's inspired look

Have you ever stood in your closet and asked yourself "What Am I Going To Wear?" Can I tell you this is my question most mornings?  Whenever I'm indecisive about what to wear, I start from the bottom.  Since I have a fairly decent shoe collection, I head to my shoe closet and let the shoes decide for me.  So the silver oxfords decided to make an appearance.  What I love most about these shoes is that they have the ability to completely change the style of anything I wear with them.  Today I'm biting from the guys in this men's inspired look.  I love a good andro look every now and again.  If you got my 30 Day Outfit Guide, you'll see I talk about the power of a blazer.  I could have stopped with the sweater but the blazer is what brought the entire look together.  

What's your method for pulling a look together when you're clueless about what to wear?

Navy Blazer + Distressed Jeans

The Style Klazit, Melodie Stewart, Atlanta style blogger, Shoedazzle, Atlanta fashion, street style

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!! I hope your day is filled with food, fun and family fellowship.  So we all know what happens after thanksgiving; the infamous Black Friday shopping.  I've participated in Black Friday shopping twice and I'll never do it again.  But for those of you who are willing to fight the good fight of a bang'n sale, why not do it in style.  Today's outfit is perfect for the shopping season.  Blazers give almost any outfit an effortless look and you should have at least one in your wardrobe; it's a staple.  Denim jeans are timeless and distressed denim just makes you look even cooler.  I went with this floral print button down because plain ol' white was just to easy.  Heels and shopping don't go together, so these men inspired oxfords give this look the flare it needed.
