3 WAYS TO STYLE A GRAPHIC TEE THIS SUMMER

HI GUYS ! Wow….it’s been a while since my last post & time just seems to keep flying by! 

Just recently I’ve been so busy because I launched the new Rock Paper Sequins T-Shirt Line (Yay!!) and the first few styles are now available on The Rock Paper Sequins Online Boutique. It’s been so much fun to work on a new collection & I really like the idea of creating something simple, chic, fun & accessible. So….on that note, I’ve really been getting more into wearing graphic tees on a regular basis & incorporating them into my everyday wardrobe.

Here are 3 Chic ways to style a Graphic Tee this season:


Casual Friday
– You’ve been dressing up all week but now Friday’s finally here….throw on a cute Graphic Tee and your most sleek and polished jeans & top with a blazer & an abundance of layered jewelry for a pulled together day look that easily transitions into dinner & drinks…..

Weekend Workout
– Weekends are for unwinding & also for working out! Squeeze in your workout or yoga class with on-the-go style….start with a cute Graphic Tee + a sleek pair of Workout Leggings, your sneakers, a water bottle & you’re good to go……

Sunday Brunch-
Brunch is my favorite & such relaxing meal…. wether you are meeting up with the girls or spending quality time with family, dress up your chic Graphic Tee with a cool denim skirt & some espadrilles for an effortless look that’s sexy & fun but not trying to hard…..

The Look #19-“Ruffled & Ripped” White Tops & Dresses with Denim & Bright Handbags…. #Outfitinspo for Spring ’17

It’s been so warm and sunny the past few days in NYC!

4de87daf09e2b502b3ecbb7b597f0306

I’m getting so excited for the NEW SPRING SEASON & thinking about all the fun tops and pretty dresses to wear when the weather stays warm for good. I know everyone has their “go-to” looks and special timeless favorites that they come back to time & time again….For me it’s always been the pretty white tops & dresses paired with denim that really sets the mood for me for early spring. My closet seems to be filled with cotton, chiffon & lacy little white dresses and tops that I never seem to tire of & I always LOVE to pull them out again at the first signs of spring. I think this is such a classic and feminine look that always looks fantastic & perfectly accessorized with gold jewelry and edgy leather accessories mixed with pops of color.

The off the shoulder trend is still going strong this season….as well as bell sleeves, ruffles and one shoulder style tops and dresses. Pair your ruffled tops with ripped denim & cool leather with soft lace….

Here is a recent #OOTD I wore for a lunch date that I posted on INSTAGRAM.

CHEETAH DRESS & FAUX FUR JACKET IN BROOKLYN

img_6558new

Fall is here! It’s been such a long time since I’ve been on the East Coast during the fall season & I’m so excited about all the pretty leaves changing color & the cooler temperatures here in NYC. I’ve also really been loving the latest new wave/ rock n’ roll/ 80’s MTV inspired collections from Marc Jacobs & Isabel Marant, so when I  found this dress on one of my recent vintage shopping adventures I was really excited because it reminded me of these emerging trends. I’ve always been a leopard & cheetah print kinda girl, but I really liked how this dress has bright pops of color in blue and purple to contrast with black.

Even though it’s fall I still like a bit of color to brighten things up. I like to style my unique vintage and thrift shop finds with whatever I’m currently wearing that’s new or on repeat.

I wore this vintage dress with my favorite faux fur jacket. I found this cozy jacket last year from Nasty Gal, but you can find similar ones here & here. I added my new black Sam Edelman suede boots, favorite pink suede Monserat de Luca fringe bag, Prada sunglasses, Topshop velvet choker & Calleen Cordero leather bracelets.

I always love wearing simple boots with dresses and also like the feeling of throwing on a furry & cozy jacket to give the outfit a bit of texture and edge. This is a fun & playful look that will take you from day into night….

XO,

Zoe

Rose Bouquet Print Dress & Moto Jacket

img_6600

I’ve been loving wine, berry & pink tones this season. They are the perfect colors to wear now to brighten up your wardrobe while still feeling like you are dressing for fall. I was so excited to find this printed chiffon dress in exactly the color I was looking for and also love the pretty floral print, ruffles & overall retro vibe. It’s a great dress for layering and would also look good worn over jeans or high boots.

I wore this Band Of Gypsies long sleeve dress with my Zara moto jacket & added my new black Sam Edelman suede boots, pink suede Monserat de Luca fringe bag, Prada sunglasses & a Topshop velvet choker.

I love wearing boots with dresses and these have a great block heel that is really comfortable for stomping around the city and would also look great with either jeans or dresses. I like how the jacket and boots add a bit of toughness to an otherwise feminine look.

Zoe

I hope you find some great style inspiration for what to wear this fall!

THE LOOK  #10- Pretty Edgy-Rockin’ Romance

Fall always seems like a good time to get a little tougher with what you are wearing…..think boots, leather jackets & heavy metal details on your accessories. But there’s another side to this fall season that’s just simply romantic. If you are like me and still holding on to that summer mood, you might want to make that transition to an autumn look filled with feminine details, ruffled blouses, lace fabrics and long flowing dresses……

These are the perfect looks to mix with some tougher pieces you probably already have in your closet. Go pretty and edgy by mixing a ruffled blouse with a motorcyle jacket, ripped jeans and boots. Or pair a long flowing dress with a studded jacket. Think leather and lace……and spiked metal with pink…….

I love this romantic but rock n roll feeling for creating an effortless personal style for the fall season.

I’m so looking forward to wearing silver studs, motorcycle jackets & washed out denim this fall. Also loving the look of dreamy flowing chiffon print dresses & tops with motorcycle boots.

I hope you like this outfit inspiration for a Romantic Rock n Roll inspired look for the Fall season…………..
