5 things you should STEAL from your Boyfriend’s closet

So we all know how sexy women find androgyny, and menswear becomes a “must” in our closets. We love boyfriend jeans, suits, bow ties etc. Unfortunately, our counter parts tend to think… well “Eww”. Here are a couple of guy clothes you can pull off all the while looking hot for your man.

1. His Tees and shirts

2. His Jacket

3. His Hats and his watch

I personally love men’s watches. All women should wear them because they make such a statement.

5. His perfume

OK this isn’t a clothing item, but the chemicals react differently with your skin, and the musky scents are very sexy.

Summer-Fall Transition

The end of August: the end of summer vacation; a bitter sweet time for everyone, but for any Fashionista, the beginning of Fall Fashion! Goodbye shorts and sandals, and hello scarves and leather jackets!

While some of us head back to school up north, the rest of us in our tropical island can enjoy the perks of Fall Fashion with these universal Fall Fashion Dos this year:

– WARMER COLORS
As September approaches, dress up in warmer colors. See Fall 2013 color palette:

– GLAM MAKEUP
Dare to wear deeper lip color such as burgundy or tomato red; And add drama to your eyes with a classic cat eye, or try a copper eye shadow.

Wardrobe Essentials

“I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR!”

Yes we’re all guilty, so don’t try to hide it. It’s very true that we buy nice clothes, but after a couple of wears, they feel old and you can’t match them with anything (neon prints??? laced bustiers? WTH?)

The key, as I have found, is to have your basics down. If you have durable, timeless pieces that go with absolutely everything, you always look put together and chic. Who cares if you wore that Proenza leather jacket to death? It looks even more amazing as it ages. “Didn’t she wear that pair of jeans last week?” Uh yeah, because it gives her a “Cul d’enfer”. Listen up people, you want to always look like you know what your doing when it comes to fashion? Well, get down with your basics and build around those key pieces.

– A white shirt that compliments your body shape.

Colors, Confettis and Carnaval

When we were younger, Carnaval or Kanaval was mostly associated with costumes, bals masqués and such … Now, all the hype of getting ready for Carnaval goes into styling T-shirts.

Commercial T-shirts in different bright colors and neons, are worn in various styles: fringes, holes, sleeveless, strapless, deep Vs and open backs … to each it’s own according to their individual style:
