Graphic tees

I think they are one of the best items you can have in your closet. They are simple and fun and show off your personality! But they should never be worn alone (and no I'm not meaning with jeans! those are a permanent accessory!) I mean a tee and jeans. Not cool. If you still want the low maintenance look try these simple tips (you can mix and match or use 1 @ a time):

# layer a few necklaces

# a vest is always awesome to wear (nothing overly tight. Their is a difference between fitted and looking like you stole your little brothers vest)

# add a cute tie (if done right can be kinda sexy)

# a stack of bracelets and long earrings

# cute belt (skinny or wide)

# layer a cute Lacey Cami under to poke out at the bottom

# a thick scarf and blazer

(Remember that this is just my fashion view not a rule book so it may not apply/work for you)

Denim - jeans

   It's winter so most likely you are wearing denim (or sweats, cords, etc.) Now for a few Seasons the whole skinny jean thing has been "IN". (I personally think they are horrible) But here is my guide to jeans for your body type:

You are curvy (awesome hips, bum, etc) = bootcut (shows your womanly curves! and looks ah-mazing with heels and boots) = All look awesome on you go for it! (role model: Tyra banks has all the curves and seems to always wear bootcut)
Where to get: Levi, See thru soul, south pole, dkny, apple bottom (practically anywhere!)

You are long legged and have a nice tush = straight leg (shows off your long legs and bum and looks awesome with heels or flats or even awesome tennies like (DC)  ) = Darker wash for a more evening sexy look and light for a more casual lounge(y) look  (role model: Beyonce' always show off her tush and long gates her legs well)
Where to get: delias, true religion,  gap, hollister, a & f, Earnest I am, Quick silver, Lucky brand jeans, 7 for all mankind, madewell,

You are a little on the heavy side or really wide hips , legs, bum, etc. (not judging!) = flare leg (draws attention away from where you don't want to be noticed and makes a good line, long-gating you)  = darker washes slim you, try to stay away from lighter washes  medium washes are OK (role model: J-Lo has the big bum and knows how to slim it well with flare leg) 
Where to get: lee jeans, YMI jeans, Gap, Union bay, jordache, joe's jeans,

You have a boy body like a ruler  = I can't believe I'm writing this but I guess it makes since: Skinny jeans are the only way to go for you (otherwise everything Else hangs of your body and looks well, BAD! ) = all work, even purple, blue, and red (role model: Carmen Diaz wears skinny well,  And selena gomez) 
Where to get: Mavi, J brand, levi's, Bluenotch jeans, forever 21, exspress 

(Please remember that this is just my fashion advice not a rule book so it may not apply/work  for you.)
