When it comes to weekend dressing I like to take a more relaxed approach, especially if I plan on walking around NYC all day. Creating an ‘Off-Duty’ look can be achieved in a range of ways.
Jeans and a plain shirt is a firm favorite when it comes to dressing for the weekend, nothing says off-duty to me more than faded denim with some rips. Give your feet a break on the weekends by opting for a pair of comfy but cute sneakers. I have a new found love and appreciation for sneakers. I used to only wear sneakers to the gym but now I incorporate them in my everyday style. For versatility purposes choose a pair in a mainly neutral color way. To finish off my look I added a fun belt, threw on a moto jacket and added a pair of ear muffs to stay warm.
We know that anything that gets dubbed “effortless” takes at least a little work. While it’s unfortunately not as simple as rolling out of bed and throwing on some clothes, nailing this off-duty look wasn’t as difficult as you might think. It all boils down to understanding that a cute outfit only needs a pair of jeans a shirt and your own personal touch to look killer.
So you’ve got a job interview, and you’re thinking what am I going to wear? Yes, it’s your personality and skills that matter, but your appearance is often what your interviewer will first notice- and it can go a long way in showing them that you’re professional, ambitious, and most importantly a great fit for the company.
There’s not one approach for what to wear. From your jacket to shoes to even your accessories, you’ll want to consider the culture of the place your applying to.
I’m a recent fashion graduate from FIT. I’ve been going on interviews a lot lately. It’s difficult to know what to wear when you’re gunning for a fashion industry job where the employees look more like gucci models than gap outfitted cubical dwellers. You’re going to have to dress the part, dressing too stuffy and corporate will not get you the job. You must dress polished and professional but still fun.
I decided to take a usual corporate look and make it more trendy. I found a basic white button down with a fun bow detail in the front. For my pants I went with a navy color instead of black that had a great flower detail on the hem. I stayed classic with nude pumps and trench coat and also added a cute pearl choker!
Above all you want to target the job you’re applying for. Having a killer look might not get you the job, but it’ll make sure you stay in the running.
It’s time to pull out that old concert shirt or that super soft graphic tee that’s been buried at the bottom of your drawer. The street style look is giving the beloved top new life with fresh styling tricks, like tucking it into high wasted denim. We’ve all been stuck in a style quandary once or twice, how many times have your thought “I have nothing to wear” A cool graphic tee can solve that problem with a little creativity! Here I decided to style mine with multiple layering. I chose a plaid shirt and a basic black bomber jacket, toping it off with moto jeans and classic white converse. My tee has the message “coffee loves me” written on it with a hole by the neck for an edgier look!
How do you style your old graphic tee?

I couldn’t get enough of off the shoulder tops throughout the summer and fall. I wanted to bring that style into the winter. While interning for Rebecca Minkoff I picked up this cozy off the shoulder sweater! This sweater is so versatile, I paired it with my favorite Rebecca Minkoff jeans and a pair of cute booties, an easy look for a day of shopping or lunch with the girls.
What are some of your favorite ways to wear an off-the-shoulder sweater?
