Prom season brings excitement but it can also drag its annoying friend stress along, especially when you wait until the last minute to hit the racks! Before you go in full on panic mode, check a few tips to keep your vibes chill during your last minute search!
Body Type- Work your body, move your body! Okay, well you’re around yourself enough to know your body type and how clothes fit especially when it comes to the dance floor. Pick something that’s flattering as well as comfortable when you pick your all-star dress.
Crew Love- Time to ring up the crew and bring in their votes. You should always have the ultimate vote of what you wear but sometimes it helps to filter out bad options when your girls chime in.
Tailor, Gang!- We all deserved tailored clothes, right? Absolutely! Don’t be afraid of alterations or feel like only 40 year old businesswomen get it done to their suits. Alterations are great to get the perfect fit to an off the rack dress!
Ok, it’s second semester and you’re saving up for prom or if you’re a senior that means college is right around the corner! Between saving for your spring break or books for school, you still want to have a few extra coins to treat yourself on a mini shopping spree! Well, we have a hidden trick just for you and that’s called thrifting! Before you turn your nose up to the idea plenty of dope musicians, actresses and bloggers find some of their best pieces in the bins of their neighborhood thrift store! Trust us, you can look hot on a budget and no one will ever know if it cost you $2 or $20! Check out our thrifty tips!
Divide + Conquer- Just breathe. I know when you see racks and racks of clothes that aren’t color coordinated or specifically styled it can make you walk back to your car. Well, fight the urge and divide and conquer. Have what you’re looking for in mind and go section by section. Mentally section off each part you would like to hunt and start at one section an move on to the next. accessories, shoes, etc.
First Saturdays- First Saturdays aren’t just to kick off the fun of the month but don’t forget the sales too! Majority of thrift stores have half off of all items on the first of the month. Talk about the deal of the century, right!
Be Open-Okay so the store isn’t filled with tons of mannequins with ready to made outfits so you have to be open-minded to pieces. You might not fall in love with a top right away but take a moment and see what you can pair it or style it with. Style is your personal imagination running wild.
Stay dope on a budget!
Staying fall fresh is key this season! From cute accessories to edgy pieces, autumn style allows you to remix summer trends while giving your look a new twist! Take a glimpse at a few fun fashion picks that your fave celeb style stars are rockin’ this year!

Button Up- We know flannels are in every girls closet for fall but go the extra mile or should we say button? Less is more and femininity is not baring it all, it’s keeping it chic by your own persoanl style. So this trend is one that you and your parentals may agree on.

Happy Fashion Finds!
Summer style is here and so is the movie of our generation, DOPE. Style always repeats itself + of course makes a special appearance every 10 years or so. Well, there’s no surprise that the 90’s have been making a strong comeback for the past couple of years, right? Time to check into our style guide and see which 90’s trends we’re playing with this season—>
Box Braids- From Janet Jackson to Brandy, box braids are not only stylish but an easy way to protect your strands in the summer! Ok, so it takes like 6 hours to get done but you can enjoy an entire summer of care-free tresses!
Overalls – C’mon so you know overalls were going to make the list! Either the one or double strap, overalls are a key component of 90’s style and slowly creeping back…just saying.
Fresh Flannels- Either around the waist or turned into an updated cardigan, flannels have become a staple piece on today’s style.
High Top Sneakers- Stay comfortable, chill & chic! It’s all about being comfy especially in the summertime. Pull out those high tops and get to movin’ towards some good vibes!
Stay DOPE, babes.
szYes, spring is here and do you know what that means? It’s time to get your festival style ready to rock this season! No matter if it’s a free outdoor concert in your local city or Lollapalooza, it’s time to step up your threads. Now, we’re about hit you with the 5 C’s to help you nail your festival fashion. Check it out!
Cool- Of course, the first ‘C’ is cool. Not only do you want to be fly as you’re rockin’ your wide-brimmed hat but you also want to be physically cool too! Back-to-back shows going from stage to stage can have your body temp rising while you’re vibin’ to your favorite artists. So cut offs, loose fitting tanks and sun glasses are all great must-haves to keep the sweat down this year.
Chic- Yes, keeping it laid back chic is important too. Even if you’re going to keep it cool with some skin out make sure it’s still stylish and not over the top exposure. If you’re rockin’ a pair of cut-offs pair it with an off the shoulder shirt or if you’re wearing a crop top pair it with a longer flowing skirt. You get the drift, right?
Comfy- Grass, dirt + mud sometimes aren’t the best accessories with a fresh fit so make sure to keep it comfy. Footwear is key! A pair of gladiator sandals or combats (especially with toe stomping) are great go-to options. If you’re not comfy, how can you sing all the lyrics to your fave artist’s song?
Creative -Staying on trend is great but adding your on touch is what style is all about. Borrow your mom’s broach or vintage boots and remix them to fit your look. Take risks and have fun when festival hopping this year.
Chill- Let’s chill!!! Chill and enjoy the music. Whatever you put on make sure you can move, dance and have a ball with your friends with whatever you wear.
