How To: Skinny Cargos

the skinny CARGO


A wardrobe staple, the skinny cargo can take on quite a few roles. She can be the rock & roll scenester or the trend conscious sophisticate. Dress her down with a dolman top, heavy metal jewelry and distressed boots. Or dress her up in a top with draped detailing, wedges that WOW and delicate accessories.

I completely embraced the combat boot trend of Fall 2010/Winter 2011. For me this is a look that will never die… so I keep buying BOOTS! I came up with a day and night look for combat boots, both stylish and suitable for warmer weather. Enjoy!

How to: The Classic Collared Shirt

Remember that white collared shirt you bought for a last minute interview? Our resident “how to” girl Karina Sama gives us 3 different takes on the classic white collared shirt, one for every type of stylista.

Look 1 can go from day to night easily. For a casual look go for the combat boot and to dress it up without being too fussy, throw on a simple black pump. This look is all about the accessories.

Look 2 is very casual but very clean. A boyfriend cut jean, a bit destroyed, adds the perfect edge to this classic look. Perfect for a mid-day shopping trip or lunch with some friends.

Look 3 is a very tribal-inspired look. For a more relaxed feel, leave the shirt outside of the pant; to make it more polished, tuck it in and add an eye-catching waist belt.

Jeggings, sequins, native prints, and skinny cargos are a select few of Fall’s most popular trends. Paying homage to the 1970s with the faux fur vest, the 1990s with the grunge-cool combat boot and the iconic Chanel quilted handbag, these pieces were the power players from the runway to the streets thanks to designers like Micheal Kors, labels like J Brand and stores like H&M and Forever 21. Stay tuned for how to rework these items for the Winter season with the help of our style council.
