Stripes, Wide Leg Trousers and Loose Waves

I must say, I've really been adoring stripes lately. Pair it with classic skinny pants and ballet flats and you'll have the perfect outfit for gallivanting around town, lunch with the ladies or running errands. To vamp up your look for the evening add a fitted black blazer, a flouncy skirt and ankle booties.

I am also loving the wide leg trouser. Whether denim or traditional pant, this sophisticated look pays homage to the seventies. I know that I have practically worn holes in my skinny jeans, though the wide leg is stylish, sexy and elongating.

Lastly, nothing says sexy more than loose waves. Sultry, voluminous waves are coveted and you can have it too! It is like icing on the cake. I like looks from Blake Lively, Demi Moore, Heidi Klum and Sarah Jessica Parker. It truly adds va va voom without looking too overdone.
