Memorial Day Outfits Hotter Than The Bbq

The unofficial start of summer is right around the corner, and the only things we’re interested in are barbecue, beer and the best Memorial Day outfits.

Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start of summer because who has time to wait until June? As the days get longer and the temperatures reach scorching levels, it’s only right that we open up those pools, bust out those bikinis and make sure we start the season off right.

Whether you’re headed to the beach, out to a club or staying home for a family party, these Memorial Day outfits guide will have you feeling hotter than a rack of ribs.

Beach

Beach

Lying down on the soft sand while you sip a cool beer sounds like the perfect way to start the summer, but why not show off your figure and style while you’re at it?

If you’re headed to the beach this MDW, make sure you have this one essential item: a one-piece swimsuit. While bikinis were once thought to be the only sexy swim gear, one-pieces are steadily growing in their sex appeal.

Cut-out bathing suits are a crowd favorite, and if you’re a people pleaser, a cut-out one-piece swimsuit is just what you need for those appreciative glances.

Hitting the boardwalk for happy hour is one of the best plans for a day at the beach, but be sure to cover up before. While some might appreciate the extra skin, heading indoors is the perfect time to use a sexy cover up. This one-piece cover up duo doubles perfectly as a crop top and skirt outfit for the lax dress codes of the boardwalk.

BBQ

Like any normal human being, food and sleep might be some of your favorite things in the world, and while we don’t recommend sleeping your Memorial Day weekend away, eating is always a plan!

Everyone starts breaking out their rusty grills to fire up some burgers and ribs, and if you’re making an appearance by the BBQ, here’s how to make sure you’re sizzling more than the hot dogs.

Barbeque

Barbecues are almost always casual, but there’s nothing wrong with making yourself a bit more put together. In a look that could transport you right to the Fourth of July, put a patriotic spin on your outfit. Pair red cotton shorts with a sheer navy blouse and a bralette to wear underneath.

For a touch of casual, finish off your outfit with a pair of white vans or sneakers. If you’re still looking to show off your inner fashionista, accessorize with nude sunglasses and crossbody bag.

Clubbing

Clubbing

Dancing the night away on Memorial Day weekend is easier than you think. The hottest celebrities might be hosting an event at your favorite nightclub, and you’re going to want to dress like you belong right in Hollywood. Nightclubs get very hot very fast, so you’re going to need an outfit that can take the heat.

Ditch the overdone skirt or dress and go with a pair of distressed jeans. While the rips will give you some much-needed air, you won’t have to worry about a short hemline leading to a wardrobe malfunction.

In order to give this outfit some much-needed spice, go dark in a deep-v bodysuit with laced details and strappy black pumps. You can always change the heels for something shorter and thicker, but make sure the look is completed with a sleek red clutch to complete this Miami fever outfit.

Music Festival/Concert

Music Festival

After Coachella, there’s an abundance of outdoor music festivals and concerts, and if the mood strikes to sway to some tunes while the sun sets, make sure it’s with this outfit.

Dancing underneath the afternoon sun to the latest song by The Chainsmokers can be a great time until your sweat consumes your body and your clothes, so lightweight clothes are the way to go.

Lace, crochet, crop tops and high-waist shorts are big during the summer and festival seasons, so what would be better than one of these styles? All of these styles.

For your MDW look, go for a lace crop top and pair it with high-waist shorts and gladiator sandals. If you’re planning on dancing until the moon rises, throw a denim jacket around your waist to bear the night chills.

Parade

Parade

While Memorial Day weekend is the perfect time to kickstart the summer, you might find yourself spending Monday at a parade in honor of our fallen troops. MDW parades are definitely family friendly, so you might want to keep that in mind, but don’t let that stop you from looking good and appropriate.

You can show off your figure and those lean legs in a crop top, cut-off shorts and short gladiator-styled sandals. This will also be the perfect time to throw on a floral duster alongside your purse and sunglasses.

Memorial Day gives us the chance to remember our fallen soldiers, have some much-needed relaxation time and gear up our wardrobe for the summer months.

9 Winter Date Outfits To Keep Your Romance Hot

Who says your outfits can’t sizzle in the winter? Whether you’re going for a hot date or a warm night in, these winter date outfits will keep your romance hot.

During the winter, you and your significant other might be scrambling for date ideas to keep the romance alive, but the cold temperatures might be keeping them at bay.

One way to keep the fire going is with your outfits! It might be hard coming up with dates for the winter, and it might be even harder trying to deciding what to wear! For a few winter date outfit ideas, check out our tips below!

Winter Date Outfits … for Baking

If you’re going over to your guy’s house or expecting a visit from him, you could definitely make a night out of baking.

Not only do you both get to snack on something sweet afterward, but the whole baking process could be filled with flirting that could lead to other activities where biting and nibbling might be involved (wink wink).

If you’re not strict in the kitchen and you don’t mind making a little mess, your outfit needs to be simple and casual with a dash of sexiness thrown in there.

The perfect outfit for a baking date is a t-shirt and thigh-high socks. If you have an oversized t-shirt hanging around your room, that’s perfect! For an added touch, opt for one of his larger t-shirts.

Something about seeing their girl in their own t-shirt really gets a guy going and this will definitely add to the leg you’ll be showing from the socks!

Winter Date Outfits … for a Carriage Ride

Your date might be truly romantic and have a carriage ride planned out for you. If he does, definitely take advantage of this opportunity but make sure you bundle up! It’ll definitely be cold out there, especially if the temperatures drop to below freezing.

This outfit is perfect for a carriage ride. Jeans are always the best choice for dressing up what could’ve been a casual outfit. While pairing the look with booties could still make for a cute outfit, thigh-high boots are definitely sexier and warmer!

If you’re wearing booties the fashionable way, your ankles will be exposed and you don’t want that for a cold carriage ride. The black turtleneck is a great and warm look for the winter and the green trench lightens up the dark outfit and gives it a bit of character.

Don’t be afraid to add a hat, gloves, and a scarf to the wardrobe. You want to stay warm, but you and your date could definitely get warmer together underneath the blanket!

Winter Date Outfits … for Dinner

If you’re feeling less on the spontaneous side and just want to enjoy a nice meal together, this is a great outfit for a wintertime dinner. Like our previous look, we know that jeans work well with everything and it’s easy to throw an outfit together.

The black sweater is comfortable and casual enough for the winter temperatures, but it also works well as a piece to dress up. The statement necklace gives this look just what it needs to be dinner appropriate, but this outfit is nothing without the boots.

We’ve long given up the rounded front of boots and have traded them in for their sexier and pointier competition.

Winter Date Outfits … for a Football Game

You might find yourself on a date at a football game this winter, and if you do, our biggest advice to you is to bundle up! Rams and Chargers fans might find themselves in luck, but if you’re rooting for the Patriots or the Giants, you’ll definitely need the layers, but that doesn’t mean you can’t create a hot look!

Pick your favorite pair of jeans and match them with stylish flat boots. If there’s snow or ice around, you don’t want to be caught slipping – literally!

Long sleeve shirts will be your friend and go with pieces that work well with layering! Try styling a long sleeve white or black shirt underneath flannel or plaid. If you’re serious about showing off your outfit in the cold, pair a vest on top of it before throwing on a warm coat.

With these layers, you can still keep your jacket open to show off your outfit. Don’t forget the hat and gloves and your sunglasses are a must to block off the sun and your haters.

Winter Date Outfits … for a Hockey Game

If your date is a hockey fan versus a football fan, you can keep the same idea, but tweak your outfit slightly! You won’t need as many layers as you needed for the football game, but you’ll definitely still need to be bundled up. In this outfit, Hailey Baldwin creates a great outfit for a hockey game.

Leather leggings are an ideal way to create a sexy look while staying warm. The over the knee boots add to the appeal of the outfit without making her appear too dressy. She keeps her layers relatively simple with a Rangers jersey worn under a denim jacket.

Winter Date Outfits … for Ice Skating

One date that you can’t skip out on during the winter time is ice skating! Not only is it fun, but it’s definitely on the list of most romantic dates. For the perfect ice skating outfit, you can definitely start with the basics of either jeans or leggings.

While it might not seem important in any other outfit, you’ll definitely want to pay attention to your socks. Crew socks are better because they’ll stop the skates from chafing against your skin, but they also add to the look of your outfit.

For those of us who don’t feel like picking out a cute sweater or shirt, all you’ll need is a cute trench styled coat. Regardless of if you’re skating indoors or outside, it’ll be cold so don’t forget to bundle up with a cute hat and infinity scarf!

Winter Date Outfits … for New Year’s Eve

One of the hottest dates you’ll have all year will probably be for New Year’s Eve so you have to make your outfit count! Depending on your plans and the temperature, you probably won’t want to be dressed in a leg showing dress, and this pictured outfit is a great alternative.

High waist pants have definitely been trending for the past two years, so you can make use of a great pair of high waist trousers. Sequins or metallic looks are perfect for the New Year’s Eve festivities, so definitely incorporate this into your outfit.

Hippie Fashion: A Guide To Turning Hippie Into Hipster

When you think of Hippie fashion, do you not get it? Well, we’re here to change that. With these Hippie turned Hipster looks all you’ll be thinking is, give me!

Since the mid 1960’s, the term Hippie (Hippy) has been thrown around with a bunch of loose meanings as well as stereotypes. For most people, the first few thoughts that pop into mind are Woodstock, drugs, peace symbols, and for some, even dread locks.

Hippies are seen as people who just sit around a fire, listening to Jimi Hendrix, and singing Kumbaya. Back then, that may have been the case, however, the times have changed, and so has the meaning of the hippie fashion and dressing like a hippie.

What is Hippie fashion?

Lately, the ideas of ‘Hippie-ism’ have become more of a fashion statement as opposed to the ideas of doing drugs and listening to songs about your feelings. Back in the sixties, if you wanted to dress like a hippie, that meant over-size floral shirts, fringed vests, circled glasses, crazy hairstyles, flow-y jeans, and even flower pieces for women’s heads.

Now that it’s 2015, the ideas of the old Hippie style have since been thrown out the window. It has been reinvented as well as reincorporated into something that makes even the highest of fashion guru’s want a taste!

Now, I know what you’re thinking. Hippie fashion is just like Bohemian style… And if this is what you’re thinking, you’re wrong. To dress like a hippie is actually much different than dressing bohemian. In fact, the term Hippie isn’t even really the category for this day and age. It is actually now referred to as Hipster fashion! To explain exactly what I mean by Hipster, here are some examples. For starters, clothes.

What to wear and where to get it

Now, I know what you might be thinking. How and where can I buy something like this? This must cost a fortune! But actually, it is more likely than not that most people have outfits such as these in their closets without even realizing it!

The basic idea of your modern day hipster outfits include the following: ripped jeans, Converse or Vans sneakers, long shirts that are comfy yet stylish, some shirts could even include powerful sayings, patchwork, or even plain old woven tops, and leather jackets. These are the items you need in order to dress like a hippie.

As for dresses, you will typically need something flow-y with a lot of patterns. The cost of buying outfits such as these is surprisingly very cheap. You can go to places such as Forever 21, Charlotte Russe, Wetseal, PacSun, Debs, Quicksilver, or even Hot Topic and Spencers.

You need to accessorize

To sum up what your average Hipster fashion is – it’s flirty, it’s edgy, it’s cool, and also very fun. You can also doll up any outfit with a few of these accessories:

Duh! A flower headband! What screams Hippie fashion more than a floral headband!

Finally, for necklaces, a lot of pendants/crystals, medallions, or even a shell/Puka necklace should do the trick!

Remember, these are just a few ideas of accessory items, there are plenty more out there that follow the ideas of this trend. That’s the beauty of Hipster fashion and Hippie Fashion, it’s easy to play with as well as dress up!

You can find pieces such as these in shops such as Claire’s, Icing, Forever 21, Wetseal, and many more. There are plenty of stores that are modernizing forgotten eras and resurrecting them.

How to Hippie or Hipster up your hair

If you are looking for a more drastic and to the point idea of a Hippie, these few hairstyles are the ones for you! Some ladies took to the old yet modern idea of dreading their hair.

However, on top of dreading it, they even went to the lengths of adding many feather and bead extensions. This look hasn’t really caught on too much, yet it still beautifully portrays the idea of a re-birthed 1960’s era.

Then, there is the beautiful everyday look that just includes a thin head band followed by your hair, whether it’s wavy, straight, curly, dreaded – you name it!

Another big favorite is also braids. Braids will most likely be a fashion trend until the end of time! They can be used in multiple ways such as these.

girl-with-black-boho-braids

You can even do a fish tail braid, waterfall braids, or two thin braids on the sides of your head to create the half up/half down appearance. Remember, these are just a few suggestions to complete your look! Many more can be created.

A little makeup never hurt

To sum up your look, lets move on to makeup. Although the idea of a Hippie is to be more…’one with the earth,’ and very plain faced, the times have changed. Don’t get me wrong, people still follow this rule and stick to putting on only lip-gloss and flesh-tones, but the era of Hipster has moved a little beyond that.

Let’s begin with the eyes of a Hipster.

makeup-tones-for-hippie-look

Hipster eye makeup has moved on to become more noticeable. They use very vibrant and very exotic colors to accentuate their eyes and bring out the colors of their face as well as wardrobe. However, even though Hipster colors may be louder than they once were, that doesn’t mean that they’re not portraying the ideas of the earthy tones in the world.

Now, for my favorite part of the Hipster trend, the lipstick! The latest shades that have been on everybody’s mind since September! Raisin and Black Cherry! I don’t know what it is about these shades exactly; however, they just make practically every female look gorgeous. They leave your lips looking full, hydrated, and just down right beautiful!

These shades will surely go with any Hipster outfit as well as other vibrant shades of pink, red, and the ever-popular just plain nude lips.

dark-red-lipstick-for-hippie-look

The ideas of Hippie now turned Hipster will continue being a growing fashion trend! With the latest designs, merchandize, and freedom, this trend leaves today’s fashion lovers with a style we won’t soon forget! With its fun, flirty, gorgeous ideas of dressing up for a day at school, work, or a day out on the town, there is an outfit for everything.

So, instead of picturing your parents, aunts, and uncles at Woodstock whenever the word Hippie is mentioned, remember that it has altered into a more modern style that’s all its own.
