Hey Guys, I decided to update my 'Get The Look' section of my blog and decided to make a spring lookbook and incorporated different styles.
Sometimes we all want to look classy and chic but don't want to look like a complete wannabee and look like we tried really hard. So I paired some high-waisted denim jeans with a white pussy-bow chiffon shirt and an oversized wool jacket. Very classy right? But then again we want to make this look a little more casual and hip therefore we just added some rad black platform converse. Cool right? So whenever you are feeling a little classy and don't want to look overdressed, just throw on your dirty pair of coverse or sneakers and you will totally transform your look.

2.Laid back Denim
This second look is a very casual but pretty look. I paired two different types of light washed denim with a pastel embelished sequinned top. Alexandra pulled off a messy high ponytail to make the look effortless and casual. I kind of got inspired with the Coachella trend, so I stacked some beaded bracelets and chose high waisted shorts. I really do think that this is an easy look to pull off day or night and it's a perfect look to rock Spring.

So this is the second look, definitely more trendy and hip. Now I kind of took a risk and paired the denim overalls with a vintage crochet collar, now this could have looked farmer like but turned out quirky, especially when paired with rad wedges. Alexandra's hair was just left down natural to make the look easy-going but on trend. If you want to go out in the evening or have a special but casual occasion to go to, this is a spot-on look to pull off this season.

Wow, Alexandra looks flawless. This is a great outfit for a more fancy occasion, you can pull off this look with a skater skirt or pleated skirt and a cropped top or cami. Make sure that you have a statement piece of jewelry such as earrings, a necklace or a be-jewelled rings. Here Alexandra's hair is done with two twisted braids that I pulled black to ensure that we see those gorgeous earrings. A little heal made the look fancier, wedges are perfect for a little hight boost (not that Alex needs it haha) and teen appropriate. This is an easy and fancy outfit to pull off.

Now, if you are a rebel and feel a little cheeky and sassy this look has your name all over it. Have to go to a prom or a fancy occasion? Well, pair a fancy puffy dress with some layered chains and sneakers... yes I paired converse with a prom dress! What a rebel right?! I put Alexandra's hair in a sort of messy twist braid, this makes the outfit look younger and fresh. What do you think about this look? Original right? You can all pull of this look with the right clothes and a rad attitude.

Retro : is a culturally outdated or aged style, trend, mode, or fashion, from the overall postmodern past, that has since that time become functionally or superficially the norm once again. It generally implies a vintage of at least 15 or 20 years. For example clothing from the 1980s or 1990s could be retro.
1)Makeup: To achieve a vintage, feminine look, try a pastel color palette with different shades of purple (for instance, violet, lilac, lavender, light pink, blue and cream). Then, go with a neutral lip-shade for daytime (a shade lighter than your natural lip-color) and a darker color for the evening (a shade darker than your natural lip-color, depending on what color your skin is, different shades of red). A common vintage look is to match your eyeshadow with you dress for the day and bring in gold and silver shimmer tones for evening wear.
2)Clothing: Tank tops are great, especially when layered and in various shades of pastel colors like purple, pink, blue and cream. Lot's of cardigans (cozy, sleek and classic). Light scarves are nice and can add a pop of color to any outfit. Dresses with ruffles or lace details are pretty and great for spring and summer. Look for clothing with vintage looking patterns, silhouettes, and trim. Buying vintage inspired clothing is one very easy way to achieve a vintage look with new clothing.
3)Shoes : Ballet flats are both vintage and modern too.
4)Jewelry and Accessories: Pearls are beautiful, feminine and always a good choice. Pearl stud earrings make for a classy everyday wear and scream sophisticated. Amulets are interesting and give a vintage effect as well (try getting one with your birth-stone in it). As far as bags and purses are concerned, messenger bags in leather are a great choice for everyday. Clutches in light pink or embellished with glitter or beads are very feminine and glamorous. If clutches bother you then attach a strap and sling over your shoulder. This is nice evening wear.
5)Hair: Go for waves or curls when trying out the vintage look. It's a classic and sophisticated hairstyle that looks quite feminine. Another great hairstyle is the messy bun. With any hairstyle, however, you can always add a little bling! Pin and braid you hair back with cute clips.
Preppy : The term preppy is particularly well-known amongst American teenagers, but high school and college preps differ from traditional, East Coast preps. Preppy fashion came back into style when designers like Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Marc Jacobs, and Luella Bartley added the preppy style into their clothes. FashionPreppy fashion started in the late 1940s and 1950s as the Ivy League style of dress.Preppy fashion, had stores on Ivy League school campuses, such as Harvard, Princeton, and Yale, during the mid-twentieth century. Ralph Lauren, J. Crew, Vineyard Vines, and Elizabeth McKay are also frequently perceived as having preppy styles. New York City maintains itself as the headquarters for most preppy clothing lines, such as J. Press, J. Crew, Brooks Brothers, and Ralph Lauren, reflecting the impact of East Coast culture on preppy lifestyle.

Harajuki : is a fashion style which rarely conforms to one particular style it is usually a mesh of many "Unique Street Fashion"
1. If your'e more of a girly girl and you're into make-up you can try a bright red lipstick, dab a little pink blush and a thin stoke of liquid eye-liner (asian style)
2. For those of you with gorgeous long hair : leave it down, divide your'e hair, then grab a handfull of hair and twist into two little buns on each side. if you really want the whole look, add some colourful hair-extensions in both the buns
3. To complete the look...add some geometrical or quirky bangels on your wrists, if you don't have the right bagels add any type of jewelry you have
4. Now the clothing : you don't need the "versace designed h&m dress" or any haute couture label, just wear some really colourful but geometrical patterned top, dress, shirt and team with a simple pair of pants, anything really but make sure that you don't mix it up with the hippy look
