La Marinière Top

The very French marinière top is a really cute and versatile item to add to your closet, giving your look a casual Frenchy vibe.

Structured Blazer

This item is in every chic French girl's wardrobe. It's not just for formal settings; match it with a t-shirt underneath and a pair of jeans for an easy, elegant look.

Flats

This is a very classic and easy to wear shoe that won't take too much attention away from the rest of your outfit. Parisian girls wear flats all year round, weather permitting of course.

Trench Coat

The trench coat will be your best friend in spring and early winter. Throw it on for an instant upgrade, and feel free to stray from the classic beige color.

Black Leather Bag

A leather bag is elegant, practical and convenient. It never goes out of style and you can wear it every day of the year. A must have!

Straight Leg Jeans

You won't often find a French woman in skinny, tight clothing and jeans are no exception. Straight leg jeans are the popular choice, preferably a pair of Levi's 501s. They're comfortable and casual, and flatter in all the right ways. Luckily we have found a variety of cheaper alternatives!

Kylie Jenner is one of the most popular social media influencers of our time. You might know her from "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," or from seeing her cosmetics company Kylie Cosmetics all over Instagram and YouTube. Kylie has also been labeled as somewhat of a style icon for millennials as she embraces her curvy figure with form fitting, sexy clothing. While Kylie has access to many luxury brands, you don't need thousands of dollars to get her look for yourself. Here are several alternatives more suitable for someone on a budget!

1. Street Style

Kylie really know how to give all of her day-to-day looks a sexy element. A slim bodysuit and hip hop style trousers make for a very sporty vibe, but she decided to finish the look with a neon green heels from Balenciaga and one of her Birkin bags. Here's how to rock the sporty yet sexy look for yourself.

2. Work Apparel

For this look, Kylie has styled an extra long blazer with a pair of tight bermuda short,s and use a waist bag as a belt. If your office allows more work apparel alternatives, try your own version for an exciting upgrade of your typical day at the office.

3. Punk Rock Chic

This is an expensive look that is very achievable without having to splurge on any luxury brand items. A black jacket, short leather skirt and basic white tank top will do the trick. Style it with your favorite accessories, some fierce make-up and you're going to rock it!

4. Night Out

Kylie obviously loves latex material, and we don't have any problem with that. This dress complements her figure and her hair color makes the look even more memorable.

Graduate in Style with These 8 Outfits

Con-GRAD-ulations, you've finally made it! All those late-night study sessions, early morning classes, and marathons at the library have finally paid off and it's time put on that cap and gown. The dress code for a commencement ceremony is definitely a lot different from typical student attire (which probably consists of more sweatpants and sneakers than you'd like to admit), so coming up with the right outfit to wear for your big day might be a bit of a challenge. If you're debating on what to wear, we've got you with this round-up of 8 graduation outfits that capture 4 different styles you can wear to properly celebrate finishing school!

Fancy Looks

Win graduation with these fancier looks! This red dress not only goes well with a graduation gown, but will also make you a standout with its gorgeous arm detailing. You'll also be turning some heads with this black dress, thanks to the added white sash that accents and flatters the waist.

Classy Looks

These two outfits are definitely keepin' it classy without overdoing it. White is definitely a graduation go-to, but cute lacy patterns will definitely keep you standing out in the crowd. You can also never go wrong with florals, like this sleeveless dress that is as cute as it is stylish. Pair with some accessories and comfortable (but still dressy!) shoes, and you're all set.

Mature Looks

Planning on a less traditional look that doesn't involve a skirt or dress? A cute yet comfortable two-piece suit might do the trick, like this G.Shero set. Or, go smart casual with a sleeveless blouse and straight trousers. Finish it off with a pair of cute flats for maximum comfort, or your favorite heels.

Girly Looks

Want to pull off something on the girlier side? Go bohemian chic with this light and flowy dress that will add some playful patterns under your grad gown. Or, opt for this gorgeous bell-sleeve dress. Both these outfits go great with chunkier or lower heels, which will be a lot more comfortable than most other fancy shoes (your feet will thank you!).

It can be difficult to put together a nice outfit for work when it's hot and humid outside. We recommend stocking up your wardrobe with these 100% work-appropriate items and you will never be out of ideas for what to wear everyday! It'll save you time in the morning, too.

Wide Legged Trousers

Tight pants are not your friend during the summer. Wide legged trousers are super comfy and keep you cool while not showing too much of your skin.

Long Shirt Dress

This fashionable, yet formal dress will carry you through the summer. Just slip it on, throw on some nice shoes and you're ready to go!

V-Neck Jumpsuit

Three words: onesies for grown-ups! You can layer a t-shirt inside, or quickly throw on a blazer and your outfit will be ready for your next big meeting.

Off-Shoulder Blouse

They show just the right amount of skin, and you can keep it on for your hot date right after work!

Formal Shorts

If shorts are allowed in your office, then don't be afraid to wear a conservative option that flatters your figure but doesn't reveal too much.

Blazer

A blazer can make a lot of your non-work clothing ready for the office! Just style a structured blazer on top, and you'll be grateful that you have it when the AC is blasting all day inside.

High-Heeled Sandals

The heel is high enough to demand respect, but not so high that your feet will hurt. Sounds pretty great to us!

Midi Dress/Skirt

The length of a midi dress or skirt allows you to wear it all year round! Choose a fun pattern if you dare, and you'll find that you've brightened up an otherwise drab office space.
