An Ode to Kate Spade

A push notification from The Hollywood Reporter slid onto the top of my screen with the simple headline of Kate Spade, 55, Has Died. Not even five seconds later, E! News and Buzzfeed News all showed up on my phone with similar headlines and I honestly didn’t believe it at first. As soon as I got into the office, I read countless articles on her death and perused the tweets that poured in on Twitter and truthfully -- I was devastated.

Things That Happen When You're 30...

I don’t know about you, but I am always trying to find a unique way to do something that has already been done, and baby showers are no exception to that rule of mine. While I do not want children myself, I’ve been a part of putting together a coupe of baby showers and really the first impression of whether or not the baby shower going to be a good one is the invitation isn’t it?

Summer Is All About Dresses

While I was browsing the Urban Outfitters website, as I frequently do, I came across a red plaid dress that looked suspiciously like a Vivienne Westwood suit Harry wore back in May 2017 lovingly dubbed “the tea towel suit.” As we can see below, it is a bit on the tea towel side, but I actually really like this suit -- it fits him amazingly well

The London Guide (Plus a 4-Day Itinerary!)

Before I left for my little holiday in London, I mentioned possibly putting together a roundup post of my time there because I was there for quite awhile (10 days!), but then I had the brilliant idea of doing a travel guide rather than a roundup post. Whilst I was researching for London I found a travel guide hard to come by, so this post is basically what I did in London, where I stayed, what I think is worth it and not worth it, and everything in between!

A Modern Take On A Classic Print

Every so often, I skim through photos of Harry looking at his choice of clothes and seeing what strikes my fancy as something to recreate and honestly, this one wasn’t on my list. It’s not that I didn’t like the suit, I did, I just tend to steer clear of shades of brown. I was actually quite surprised when I saw this suit -- it’s Gucci and double-breasted, two things Harry wears a lot, but it’s not a flashy a suit as we’re used to seeing from him which kind of made me overlook it honestly.

Harry Styles' 5 Best Suits From His European Dates

Anywho, because I am on vacation this week’s post is the (weird) favorites that I promised -- I call it weird, but I actually think this is kind of a genius idea (toot, toot) because --as I reminded you all in my last post-- if it wasn’t for Harry Styles, I wouldn’t have this blog. He’s wrapped up the European leg of his 2018 tour, as well as the Oceania stint. With him currently in Asia, I thought I’d choose my five favorite suits of his from his European stops.

Don't Be Scared To Rock A Bold Print

I thought of doing a pink shirt with white polka dots and black jeans just as Harry Styles did; but A -- it was difficult trying to find the shirt and B -- the more I thought about it, the more I decided that I wanted this one to be something of a loose interpretation and started the hunt for a blazer or a dress instead.

5 Beauty and Skincare Favorites for April

Favorites posts are some of my favorite (mind the pun) to read -- it’s where I find fashion pieces to purchase, new beauty products to try, and new music to listen to. I’ve toyed with the idea of posting favorites on this blog before and I have some ideas for some Harry Styles-centric ones but I first wanted to try my hand at a more traditional Favorite post.

Cool, Calm, and Casual

I'm of the persuasion that London is a place where I have to show up kind of already put together. Usually when I fly I look like I’ve just rolled out of bed because it’s important to be comfortable on planes -- but there is something London that is bringing out the fashionista in me and I want to look a little stylish on the flight. (Yes, I'm that person -- can you believe it?) What better place to look for airport fashion than the airport fashion of Harry Styles?!

The Perfect Day to Night Outfit

Since we are in spring and Los Angeles tends to heat up pretty quickly (it’s supposed to be 91 degrees tomorrow!) I wanted to bring you a fun outfit inspired by this look that is perfect for any outdoor occasion; rooftop movies, picnics, festivals, farmer’s markets -- this Kendall + Kylie romper is perfect! I love it because it’s a cute outfit that you can throw on and easily look put-together. If you are anything like me and you want to look cute but you don’t want to put in all that effort to look cute, then this look is literally calling your name.

How to Add A Pop of Color to Your Office Wardrobe

I thought maybe this would be one of the look I basically did a carbon copy of, because yellow suits are really awesome and very spring and I would wear a yellow suit in my everyday life tbh -- but would everyone else? So instead of doing head to toe banana (totes not opposed to that look though), I decided to do a bit of a loose interpretation of the Calvin Klein suit Harry Styles wore on the Jonathan Ross Show back in August 2017.

7 Topshop Pieces I'm Lusting After

Topshop has an amazing petite range and nearly everything that I’ve bought from Topshop fits like a glove. I also love Topshop because their clothes aren’t ridiculously expensive, they’re trendy, and they last a long time. 

Here are 7 pieces that are currently on my wishlist that will soon make it into my closet. 

The Sunshine Blogger Award

The Sunshine Blogger Award is an award given to bloggers by bloggers to those they believe bring happiness and sunshine to the blogging community, and I am so happy to be nominated. The inception of this blog came when I was bored at work one day and had long since been frustrated with the fact that I wasn’t doing anything creative in my spare time -- and thus, Dressing With Style(s) was born in November of 2017 and it’s been a rollercoaster. And while I am not a big fan of actual rollercoasters, I have thoroughly enjoyed the one that is this blog.

All Black Everything (Kind Of!)

Harry is no stranger to wearing all black (the pap pictures from New York City in January of this year come to mind immediately 🔥) and I myself love a good all black outfit; I think it looks very chic and like you're seconds away from saying "f*ck everything" and that is always the look I'm going for. This outfit, however, had a little something extra -- the “Styles” embroidered on it.

The Perfect Transitional Spring Outfit

The outfit that is the inspiration for today’s blog post is from circa 2014 (a Harry era I am not overly familiar with) I love it because it’s simple; striped shirt, faded black jeans, and boots. It’s easy to make this a “I’m going for coffee and to the mall outfit” -- which is what I am going for in my rendition. But, it could also be a “we’re going on a date to a dinner in a movie” kind of outfit -- just throw on some heeled booties and the hat and voilà, it just became a bit more dressy.

Joining Up the Dots

While it would be rather easy to find a black button-down with white polka dots, I sometimes like to choose pieces that still have the essence of what he is wearing, but with my own stylish flare. Which is why I instead opted for a round neck top that is unfortunately not sold anymore but I gave you two options of different styles. I, like Harry, also had on ripped black jeans and booties -- although mine are a different color and have a bit of a heel.

Pink Is the Only True Rock & Roll Color

I am totally not kidding when I say I have been dying to write this blog post because this outfit is literally my favorite. I’d venture to say that this outfit was the catalyst for the blog. Harry Styles wore a drool-worthy pink suit at his performance on The Today Show in May of 2017 and I lusted after that pink suit with the same desire I harbor for cake and sweets and a well-made gin and tonic. I wanted a pink suit. I had to have one.

You Flower, You Feast

This outfit was kind of difficult for a number of reasons: it took me ages to find out where this outfit was worn. I knew it was a One Direction concert and I knew it was 2015 and I was expecting the world wide web to fill in the blanks… it’s called world wide for a reason. However, it led to to many an article about how much Harry likes wearing floral print. Which, I assure you, I've read all of these articles multiple times.
