Alex: Okay, so I love this dress. I wear it all the time in the summer. Can I make it work in the winter?
Nik: Definitely. Either throw on a black leather jacket and some booties with a messy bun or what about this…
Alex: Not gonna lie, you may need to be my full time stylist. I wore the outfit that you put together (above) and someone who works at a major label was at Warner for a meeting and said he liked my vibe and my style and was wondering if I was looking for a full-time job! He asked for my contact info! Not saying I got the gig, but it’s insane that it all happened over the look you picked out! How did you do that? Can I practice styling? Is there a book or a manual of how to have good style? Help a sista out!
Nik: I’m not sure, but I think anyone can have good style if they take the time. Now that football season is over, find a Sunday to shop your closet. Put looks together and then take pictures so that you have a library to access when you don’t know what to wear, are in a hurry, or heaven forbid both. If you’re not sure where to start, check out fashion blogs or retail sites for inspiration. Oh and if I have something random…say cherry red heels…I’ll google images for red heels to get ideas. Also, don’t be afraid to ask sales associates to put things together for you or give you suggestions before you buy something. Most importantly, if you feel really good in what you’re wearing, you’ll give off that vibe. I’m guessing it was more you and less the outfit I put together.
Alex: Oh stop it… (over exaggerated hair flip)
