WHAT TO WEAR: Grab’n’Go

College Fashionista

Grab’n’Go

nunez012717-3College consists of late night studying and grabbing anything that we can jump right into the morning after in order to make it in time for class. With this, it can be so easy to spot the students that like to put a little makeup on and take their time getting ready for the day, which is how I found this cute Fashionista walking to class.

nunez012717-5Her outfit wasn’t anything drastic, as if she had to score a New York Fashion Week look to grab any photographer’s attention. It was something casual to where any girl can look her best for an everyday look. On the days when we have no inspiration or motivation to get up and get ready, it’s so easy to follow this three piece formula when deciding what to wear to class when you still want to look presentable. A laid-back blazer, booties, and jeans—that’s it! So simple.

The thing that made the outfit stand out so significantly were the details on her blazer. The cheetah collar and buttons went so perfectly went with the green cover up. What outfit would be complete without a set of jewelry? Gold is the perfect for dark colors like the green and light brown details on this Fashionista’s blazer (which she claimed was her mother’s when she was in college–OH. EM. GEE). She matched her outfit with a simple gold watch to add some color.

When in doubt, grab a light cover up to switch up your everyday jeans and a cute blouse combo. School doesn’t always have to seem like a drag when you see it as a place to score your best outfits. Dressing up for class can give off this good sense of feeling like that post-workout feeling can. If you don’t think presentation matters, think twice!

ALL IN THE DETAILS: Leopard Love

Leopard Love

nunez010117-3Living in Austin, Texas, we receive the best of both worlds. During the hot summer days, we face the central Texas humidity, but we also face the bundle up temperatures during the cold winter nights. It can be hard to dress up for an occasion when we’re faced with constant unpredictable weather.

Since Texas doesn’t encounter cold weather for a long period of time, it is interesting to see how people take on the season. As I was walking across campus, I came across this Fashionista that simply stood out amongst her peers.

nunez010117-4The leopard coat is what caught my attention. A leopard coat makes almost every winter outfit look cool and chic. From top to bottom, she paired the coat with cool, dark tones to complement her bangs and dark lip.

Underneath the coat, she wore a simple polka-dot top with dark jeans and strappy ankle boots. Usually it’s safe to stay away from too much pattern play, but the polka-dot top was the perfect non-clashing combo to the leopard print.

nunez010117-2Since the coat and top are statement pieces, she kept it simple by adding a small, dainty gold and black choker. It is the perfect outfit for a day out on the town and a dinner with some friends.

If you’re going for more of a date night or going out type of look, you can style the leopard coat with a black dress, black knee-high boots and gold statement earrings. With animal print being a winter staple, what would you wear with the bold piece?

STYLE GURU BIO: Xyclali Nunez

Hi! I’m Xyclali (See- Claw- Lee) Nuñez. I am a third year public relations major with a Certificate in Business Foundations at The University of Texas at Austin. I am originally from El Paso, Texas, a city right at the edge of Texas. My dream is to live in New York City, work in a PR agency, and to cover the latest lifestyle and fashion brands.

My best friend and I own a lifestyle blog, called the suneyedgirls.com, that covers everything fashion, beauty, books, local and music. The name, “Sun Eyed Girls” came from a Beck song about a girl that is blinded by the brilliance of someone else. Not only do we want to inspire others, but we are also inspired by others to be ourselves in a social media world where girls might feel insecure to look/act a certain way.

After coming across a TED Talk about people who have many interests, I like to describe myself as a “multi-potentialite.”  With my curiosity, I have found some of the best locations to grab some food, to get your sweat on, the cutest little hole-in-the-wall boutiques and vintage stores to find the best clothing, and my favorite part of it all, I have met some of the best people. I love to go out and connect with others because I love to meet different people. It’s one of the main reasons why I am pursuing a PR degree.

My desire to work and be the best at it aspires the #girlboss I aim to be (pantsuit included). After reaching my dream job, I hope to open up my own little boutique or restaurant. I am learning more about myself every day, and I am still trying to find out what my true purpose is, but once I discover it, I hope I love it so much it drives me crazy.

Fashion for me has always been close to my heart. For a girl who sometimes has nothing to say at all, I usually let my clothes do all the talking. After focusing on dance for about 10 years, I decided to use my style as a creative outlet. It allows me to feel comfortable with who I am and it’s something that I am very interested in. If I am able to pursue a career around fashion, I would not complain at all.

For this outfit, I kept it very simple with jeans and cheetah flats since the white ruffle blouse was a bit dramatic, but I would describe my style as ’80s inspired with a bit of street style. If I had the wardrobe of Kendall Jenner and Nicole Richie with a mix of Audrey Hepburn, I would die! My style is fun and comfortable with a bit of an edge. I am very inspired by what women would wear to Studio 54. I love all the glitter, fur, and dramatic makeup. The way people wore clothes in the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s is very inspiring because they dressed the way they felt expressed who they were as a person. Another reason why I am obsessed with vintage anything and everything.

Some of my favorite things: little black French Bulldogs, sleeping, coffee shops, rainy days, books, walking around urban areas, Fridays night movie nights with my roommate, black and white photos, traveling, and spending time with my BFF, Zoe.

Some things I cannot stand: being very indecisive, Austin traffic, country music, iPhone Storage reminders, any food that ends with the word cream, having a habit of waking up early (even on weekends), and never knowing what I want to eat.

The 90s Trends That Will Be Huge This Fall

To those who devote their time looking up outfit inspiration and spend money to keep their closets on trend, fashion has become another way of expressing our creative outlet. This past week was full on focus mode, catching every outfit in sight on the streets of New York. Fashion week came, conquered and left our little hearts wanting more.

Fashion bloggers and big celebrity names that attended the exciting week walked around the concrete jungle in fall’s upcoming trends. To keep our wardrobes on point and on trend this season, we rounded up some fashion must-haves that will be seen everywhere as fall approaches.

With the winter season approaching, the most fashionable ladies, such as Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, have brought back some of the most coveted 90s styles and we’re not complaining one bit. It is bringing back memories on the most coveted fashion outfits to date, like the matching double denim debut held by Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears at the American Music Awards. The choker trend dominated the Spring and Summer months and we’re happy to say it’s here to stay for this winter as well.

From long, formal gowns to an everyday jean and a simple bodysuit outfit, the choker is the perfect go-to to spice up your look. Lace, diamond-studded, leather, velvet, pearls, you name it. There is something about accentuating your neckline that can transform an outfit if thick chokers appeared all over runway shows for Oscar De La Renta, Balmain and Alexander Wang for their Fall/Winter 2016 line.

Chokers are not the only thing making a comeback this season. Expect some raw hems hanging from the knees, ankles or almost anywhere on denim jeans to be seen all over social media. Bloggers like Danielle Bernstein from WeWoreWhat paired the jean trend with simple black boots and a white T-shirt to keep the focus on the undone hems hanging around her ankles.

One last over-the-top 90s revival piece to stay on trend is the T-shirt under a thin strap dress combo. Just when you thought the 90s were over, celebrities like Kylie Jenner, who wore the adorned duo to the Coachella Music and Arts Festival, worked the look into various ways from grunge-cool to work appropriate.

With the temperatures getting a bit chilly, the t-shirt and thin strap dress combo will not be leaving us just yet. Trade the original white tee for a long sleeve turtleneck or an edgy vintage tee to spruce up a summer favorite. It is a simple and easy day-to-night outfit when you can’t find anything to wear.

Many trends come and go but clearly, the 90s are back and we’re obsessed. Start stocking up on statement chokers, ordering distressed denim and trading your t-shirts for some turtleneck and slip dress action to prepare for the cooler temperatures. Our brands, House of Harlow and LPA, recently stocked up on fall and winter wear that pair up with this season’s major go-to’s.

Of course, all the ways to perfect these styles are endless and revolve around the way a person wears them. All in all, from the streets to the dinner parties, these top styles are a way to start off the season.
