Every week, I scour the web to find inspiring outfits on your favorite celebs and help you recreate their looks! This week, I was inspired by Chrissy Teigen, Bailee Madison, and Elle Evans. Read on to see how you can get their looks for yourself.

Look 1: Chrissy Teigen’s Casual Cute

Photo Credit: Pacific Coast News

The ever-chic Chrissy Teigen stepped out for date night in NYC with hubby John Legend in a casual yet cute look. 

Chrissy kept her outfit laid-back by wearing a pair of light blue distressed skinny jeans with a simple white tank and a long beige cardigan. Long, open-front duster cardigans are trending this fall, and the cozy texture and neutral hue of Chrissy’s makes it perfect for the season. Her dark brown satchel-esque crossbody bag paired perfectly with her cardigan and added another fall fabric to the mix. 

Chrissy completed her ensemble with a pair of neutral slide sandals, adding to the relaxed vibe of her look, and accessorized with a trendy chain choker necklace. 

Outfit Inspired by Chrissy 

Products: Cardigan, Tank Top, Jeans, Choker, Bag, Slide Sandals

Chrissy’s outfit is awesome because it’s easy to throw on, but looks incredibly put-together. Plus, shades of brown and beige are perfect for fall, as are thick textures like suede and knit. Basically, this is the perfect autumn outfit.

To get this look, mix light wash distressed skinny jeans with a simple white tank top or tee. Then, give them a super cozy spin by adding a long knit beige cardigan over top. (Or wear yours slung off one shoulder, like Chrissy.) 

Now for the extras. For a casual vibe, throw on a pair of easygoing yet trendy slide sandals in a neutral hue, or if it’s too cold for sandals, try ankle booties or white low-top sneakers. Complete Chrissy’s ensemble with a chain choker necklace and a brown suede crossbody bag.

Look 2: Bailee Madison’s Day-to-Night Ensemble

Actress Bailee Madison got into the Halloween spirit by picking pumpkins in a fall look that could be worn day or night. Bailee wore a beige turtleneck sweater with a black asymmetrical wrap-front skort. She gave her ensemble a laid-back vibe by adding black thick-soled sneakers, a designer crossbody bag, and a simple necklace. 

Bailee’s outfit also demonstrates one of the tried and true “rules” of fashion: if you’re going to show off some skin on one half of your body (in this instance, the legs), opt for a more covered-up piece on the other half of your body (the turtleneck). It’s all about balance and proportions! 

Outfit Inspired by Bailee

Products: Skorts, Turtleneck, Necklace, Bag, Sneakers

While Bailee wore her outfit for a day of activities, I also love it for a night out on the town – plus, you could switch out the sneakers for black ankle booties and add tights, if need be.

A black, wrap-front skort will stand out when paired with a camel colored ribbed turtleneck. For a more casual look, wear some black, low-top sneakers with a chunky or platform sole. These sneakers look quite similar to Bailee’s, and are cool because their faux leather outsole gives them a sleek appearance. 

Pull the ensemble together by carrying an equally sleek crossbody bag, and wear a simple yet cute necklace, like this acrylic monogram necklace, over your turtleneck for eye-catching appeal.

Look 3: Elle Evans’s Laid-Back Cool

Photo Credit: Pacific Coast News

Model and actress Elle Evans rocked a cool, laid-back look while traveling through LAX airport this past week. Elle’s ensemble is ideal for traveling or for a casual day, as it features comfy, practical pieces that also happen to be quite trendy. 

Elle wore a black t-shirt with a graphic celestial print over some stretchy black pants, and tied a gray jacket around her waist to match her gray high-top sneakers. She accessorized with a structured black satchel and some fashion-forward round sunglasses with a brow bar. 

Outfit Inspired by Elle

Products: T-Shirt, Leggings, Bomber Jacket, Sunglasses, Bag, Sneakers

The black and gray color scheme of Elle’s ensemble is super cool, but the pieces themselves are all relaxed so that you will feel comfortable while looking trendy.

Wear some black jeggings or ponte leggings with an oversized black graphic print t-shirt; this one features a celestial print similar to Elle’s. The print helps to tie in the gray pieces in the outfit, like this cool satin bomber jacket – its silver hue makes it unique and its satin texture gives it a luxe feel. 

Rather than wearing running shoes, opt for some more refined high-top sneakers like these Vans Sk8-Hi sneakers, which make for a perfect dupe of Elle’s. Finish the look with a structured black satchel bag and some trendy round brow bar sunglasses.

TV Throwback Style: 4 Looks Inspired by Frasier

Goodnight, Seattle; hello, CF!

Credit: Official Promotional Image

When I wrote my first College Fashion piece on a TV show, the very first bit of feedback I got from a loved one was, “Can you do one for Frasier??”. Lo and behold, here it is, no more than three months late! (You’re welcome, Adam.)

For those of you who aren’t familiar with this highly prized sitcom, the premise of the show is as follows: Dr. Frasier Crane, a psychiatrist with highbrow tastes and his own Seattle-based radio talk show, navigates life’s little (and big) challenges. It’s a Cheers spin-off, and it’s probably the only TV spin-off I know of that’s actually rivaled its parent show for accolades and popular appeal.

Having just started binge watching Frasier recently, I can honestly say that I’m OBSESSED with this show. Alongside the sophisticated references scattered throughout its 11 seasons on-air, I’ve slowly grown to love the zany (and totally ’90s) fashion exhibited by each one of its characters. Daphne, of course, is my favorite to shadow, but Roz and Lilith’s wardrobes have always fascinated me as well.

For the purposes of this article, I’ve tried replicating four outfits worn by the fashionable ladies of Frasier — keep scrolling and see for yourself whether these casual looks can still be worn today!

Roz Doyle

Products: Denim Shirt | T-Shirt | Cargo Pants | Shoes | Watch | Belt

Roz Doyle is Frasier’s sardonic radio show producer and the yin to his yang (in a totally platonic way, of course). 

Where Frasier is a theorist and idealist, Roz is down-to-earth and quick on her feet. Though she and Frasier do have one brief slip-up in the way of romantic entanglements, they don’t end up together — instead, the focus is always on their professional and personal relationship. Eventually, she’s promoted to the station manager position at KACL, and becomes the OG #girlboss. Way to go, Roz!

To emulate Roz’s rugged businesswoman look, strap on some sturdy looking Oxfords and a metallic watch. Pair these with belted cargo pants, a lightweight grey shirt, and a long denim shirt to go over both. (It’s chilly at the station!)

Daphne Moon

Products: Layering Tee | Tights | Skirt | Vest | Pins | Earring | Tote Bag

Daphne Moon is the quirky, live-in physical therapist to Frasier’s dad, who ends up marrying into the family when she weds Frasier’s younger brother Niles.

Unlike the Crane clan, Daphne is spunky and pragmatic. A Manchester native, her English eccentricities are a running joke on Frasier, as is her obliviousness to Niles’ obvious infatuation with her. Daphne also claims to be “a bit psychic,” which is treated with a varying level of ambiguity throughout the show.

Dressing up like Daphne requires delving back into some ’90s trends, like chokers and floral mini skirts paired with black tights. Add on a white long-sleeve tee, a denim vest, and teardrop earrings to make the look more universal — then, stick some girly pins onto an “I’m Psychic” tote bag to look as bizarre and cute as Daphne herself!

Lilith Sternin

Products: Dress | Necklace | Pearl Earring | Bun Maker | Tight | Pump

Lilith Sternin is Frasier’s ex wife and the mother of his son, Frederick. 

As a highly analytical and cerebral (if somewhat awkwardly direct and cold in social circumstances) psychiatrist based in Boston, Lilith is a guest star on Frasier. Not coincidentally, the few episodes she stars in happen to be some of my favorite in the whole show — Lilith’s droll remarks and intellectual compatibility with Frasier make for an interesting viewing.

Apart from that, Lilith boasts a fabulous personal style. (Her regular wardrobe is very Audrey Hepburn meets Katherine Hepburn.) To imitate Lilith’s natural elegance, slip on an LBD of your own, accompanied with opaque tights and kitten heels. Slide on a pearl necklace and earrings, and finish the look up with a tan trench coat. Don’t forget to pin your hair back into a tight bun for that perfect ice queen vibe!

Bonus: Maris Crane

Products: Dress | Veil | Shoe

One of the funniest Frasier gags is the fact that you never once see Niles’ wife (later ex wife), Maris. Apparently, the producers had planned to cast her later on, but the none-too-subtle digs about her excessively tiny frame and inhuman qualities made her a subject too large (or, shall we say, too small) to be perfectly cast.

Still, when I do picture Maris, it’s either in an ill-fitting ballerina outfit or what she’s said to wear in Season 5’s “Voyage of the Damned” episode: a long black dress and veil. (Apart from having no personality and too much money, she has “virtually no pigmentation.”) To make that into a real-life look, put on some stylish shoes — black, of course — then slide on back out of the spotlight.


Did you watch a lot of Frasier growing up? Which character was your favorite? What outfit set did you like the most out of the bunch? Who are you most like: Roz, Daphne, Lilith…or Maris? Tell us this, and more, in the comments section below!

Fabulous Find of the Week: Forever 21 Lace-Up Booties

Fall = ankle bootie season.

If you’re anything like me, you really don’t need another pair of ankle booties in your closet. But, if you haven’t yet converted (or are still building your collection), be sure to check out this week’s Fabulous Find

These adorable booties from Forever 21 are a steal at under $30, and they’re so versatile that you’ll be able to wear them year round. 

The Booties

Faux Leather Lace-Up Booties – $27.90 at Forever 21

Outfit Inspiration

Wear these booties with all your favorite fall looks! Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Outfit #1

Products: Booties, Dress, Scarf, Bag, Watch

Want to carry your summery, boho style into fall? This is the way to do it. Pair a feminine dress with lace details with these lace-up booties, then throw on a classic plaid scarf for warmth. Add a tasseled suede bag for another trendy touch, but don’t forget to balance it out with a simple watch as well.

Outfit #2

Products: Booties, Skirt, Sweater, Lipstick, Nail Polish

Maxi skirt season isn’t over yet! Make yours work for fall by styling it with a drapey sweater and lace-up booties. For a pretty and polished look, put on some pink lipstick and sage-green nail polish, too.

Outfit #3

Products: Booties, Pants, Shirt, Hat, Earrings

Need a cute but casual look for your next football-watching party? Pair tomboyish pieces, like a plaid shirt and skinny cargo pants, for a laid-back vibe. Lace-up booties, a stylish baseball cap, and stud earrings will still show off your stylish side, however.

Would You Wear… Fishnet Socks?

Time to step up your sock game!

Product Information: Forever 21, Free People, ASOS

Fishnets have traditionally been associated with – and pretty much reserved for -punk/grunge styles. Now, however, people with a variety of fashion tastes are opting to wear fishnet socks to add some edginess to their look – and we certainly aren’t complaining! 

These are more simple to style than they look! Wear them with the shoes you already have in your closet. Basically, they work with anything that you’d wear with tights or socks. Voila! – instant cuteness. 

Product Information: ASOS, Topshop

Fishnet socks – yea or nay? 

Would you ever wear them or are they not for you? If you vote yet, how would you style this look? Comment below and let us know what you think!

6 Sweater Styling Tricks to Try ASAP (Sponsored)

Refinery29’s WEAR page has major #SweaterWeather inspo.

Are you feeling the mid-semester outfit slump? Already bored of your new fall clothes? We know the feeling – and we’ve got your solution. Refinery29’s landing page for street-style app WEAR on Refinery29.com is your go-to source for fashion inspo this fall.

The page is fantastic because it allows you to click on any look and find the exact source of each item. Additionally, all the looks are real life-wearable – no over-the-top editorial looks here.

While there are tons of hot trends on the page, we’re particularly loving the #R29SweaterWeather section. Here are six knitwear styling tips we picked up there:

1. Play with proportion.

As WEAR user Prettylittlefawn demonstrates, a super-slouchy sweater looks fab with fitted skinnies and a big hat. These three pieces, though simple, look crazy luxe when combined.

2. Belt it.

Give shape to a baggy, oversized cardigan by cinching it in at the waist. Here, Sheerstomping uses her cardi’s built-in tie, but any belt will work. (Bonus points for double sweater layering!)

3. Add edge with monochrome styling.

Knitwear usually leans more toward “cozy-cute” than edgy, but this look proves it’s all down to the styling. Rock head-to-toe black for a badass take on your fave fall sweater. (Leather gloves optional.)

4. Try a sweater coat.

Why limit yourself to traditional knitwear shapes? A coat-shaped sweater like Styleinfurno’s is cool and unexpected. You’re sure to stand out on campus.

5. Short sweater dress + long jacket = win.

This look is the perfect mix of sultry and cool. It’s super simple, too: Pick up a knit minidress, then add a long coat and boots. Done.

6. Rock a textured pullover and shorts.

Embrace what’s left of fall’s warm weather by mixing your favorite summer cutoffs with a lightweight knit like Shaunajacobs does. Perfection!

Greek Myth Fashion: Mythical Monsters

Fierce outfits inspired by the fearsome monsters of Greek mythology.

Odysseus and the Sirens by John William Waterhouse Photo credit

Hello and welcome back to Greek Myth Fashion, your fortnightly dose of Greek mythology-inspired style. After drawing fashion inspiration from gods, goddesses, muses, and heroes, it’s time to see how mythical creatures can influence our outfit choices.

In this article, I will show you three outfits inspired by three monsters from Greek mythology: the hydra, the cyclops, and the siren.

The Hydra

The Lernaean Hydra (or Hydra of Lerna) was a serpent-like water monster with multiple heads. When one head was cut, several would regrow, and its breath and blood were poisonous. The Hydra was eventually killed by Heracles as part of his Twelve Labors. 

Products: Bodysuit, Skirt, Choker, Boots, Bracelets, Tights, Bag

This Hydra-inspired outfit is a combination between dark tones and golden accents. Pair a black bodysuit with a dark green lace skirt, then add a pair of black Chelsea boots, some tights, and a green crossbody bag. As a nod to the serpentine qualities of the Hydra, accessorize with a snake chain choker and a set of bracelets with a scaly texture. 

The Cyclops

The Cyclops was part of a primordial race of giants, its defining characteristic being a single eye in the middle of the forehead. Greek authors described Cyclopses as builders and craftsmen, and the poet Callimachus wrote about them being Hephaestus’ helpers at the forge. 

Products: Top, Pants, Poncho, Bracelet, Boots

For the next time you need to craft an essay, here’s a suggestion for an effortlessly stylish outfit. Combine an eye print sweater top with a pair of dark blue pants, and suede boots. Layer a tasseled poncho over top, add a bangle bracelet, and now you’re ready for a productive day in the library.

The Siren

The Siren (not to be confused with a mermaid) was a creature that lured sailors with its enchanting voice and caused them to wreck their ships or drown. In early Greek art, the sirens were represented as a hybrid between women and birds. 

Products: Top, Pants, Blazer, Booties, Earrings

For an outfit inspired by the Siren, you don’t need actual feathers, because a ruffled blouse will suffice. Wear it with a pair of corduroy pants and ankle booties, and add a blue blazer as a tribute to all the sailors who met their end because of the Sirens. Accessorize with drop earrings for an elegant finish.

What do you think?

Stage-Inspired Fashion: Hedwig and the Angry Inch

Fashion from the internationally ignored rock band.

From the costumes to the set, from the words of the script to the movements of the actors, everything on stage tells a story. Stage-Inspired Fashion adds a little drama to everyday style.

Official Promotional Image

The national tour of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, starring Darren Criss and Lena Hall, just started in San Francisco! In celebration of this fantastic show, let’s get into some over-the-top fashion inspiration.

Behind the Scenes

Hedwig and the Angry Inch is presented as a concert played by genderqueer rocker Hedwig (usually played by a man), her husband/backup singer Yitzhak (usually played by a woman), and her band the Angry Inch. Through John Cameron Mitchell’s book and Stephen Trask’s music, Hedwig tells the audience her life story.

Formerly known as Hansel, Hedwig was forced to have a sex-change operation in order to marry an American man and escape from East Berlin. However, the operation went awry and left her with an “angry inch,” and although she made it to America, her husband left her for a man. She later became the girlfriend and musical mentor of shy teenager Tommy, but after finding out about her past, Tommy left her as well. He stole the songs she wrote and became a much more successful rockstar.

At the concert, Hedwig finds out that Tommy is playing next door. She becomes more and more angry and upset as the evening progresses, and has a breakdown onstage in an incredible, powerful moment of theatre.

The costumes in Hedwig can be described as rockstar glam at its finest. Read on to learn how to nail that vibe in your own look:


So when you’ve got no other choice,
You know you can follow my voice
Through the dark turns and noise
Of this wicked little town.

Products: Romper, Jacket, Patch, Fishnets, Boots, Eyeshadow, Blush

To get Hedwig’s glam-rocker style, put on a satin romper, fishnets, and glittery gold boots. Rather than replicate her wildly decorated denim, customize your own denim jacket with pins and patches that are important to you. Finish the look with Hedwig’s iconic makeup: bright blue eyeshadow and bold pink blush.


The love that had me in your grip
Was just a long, long grift.

Products: Shirt, Sweatshirt, Jacket, Jeans, Boots, Gloves

Hedwig forbids Yitzhak from doing drag while they’re together, so Yitzhak’s look for most of the show is very masculine. For a Yitzhak-inspired outfit, layer a leather jacket over a black hoodie and a white button-down shirt. Add loose boyfriend jeans, chunky combat boots, and fingerless gloves.


And you’re shining like the brightest stars,
A transmission on the midnight radio.

Products: Shirt, Shorts, Jacket, Boots, Eyeliner

By the end of the show, Hedwig and Yitzhak look like completely different people. Hedwig has taken off her flashy costume and stands onstage in a pair of black leather shorts; Yitzhak, returning to drag at last, puts on an even flashier costume. Combine their respective finale looks with a black tank top, Hedwig’s leather shorts and silver makeup, and Yitzhak’s over-the-knee boots and outrageous sequins.


Ultimately, Hedwig’s story is one of acceptance, forgiveness, and healing. Hedwig, Yitzhak, and their audience find their way there together through the power of their music. The fabulous costumes? Well, they’re just the icing on the cake.

5 Geek Chic Halloween Costumes To Try This Year

Who doesn’t love a good pop culture costume?

Silk, Eliza Schuyler, and Ty Lee! 

Halloween is definitely my favorite holiday of the year. I’m not big on spooks and scares, but I do love wearing costumes! While I go all out for my cosplays, I’m not as willing to spend time and money on my Halloween costumes: it’s more about having fun! 

With that in mind, most of these geeky Halloween costume ideas can be put together with pieces from your closet. (If not, try borrowing from a friend!) 

Love pop culture? Want to stand out in a crowd of black cats and princesses? (Not that those aren’t totally fun costumes!) Try out one of these easy, geeky costumes inspired by some of the biggest pop culture hits of the last couple years.   

Eleven from Stranger Things 

Products: Dress, Jacket, Socks, CollarShoes, Wig, Blood, Eggos

I know, I know, everyone and their mother is gonna be Eleven from Stranger Things this year. But I still felt like this list would be incomplete without everyone’s favorite telekinetic, Eggo-loving, Demogorgon-busting badass. 

To start your Stranger Things Eleven costume, you’ll need a pink dress and a blue jacket. If you want to get closer to her look, you can always add a detachable collar to any pink dress. Then, you just need tube socks, sneakers, and a dab of fake blood under your nose! Pick up a box of Eggos as a fun prop (but do pay for them). Blonde wig and/or shaved head are optional.   

Barb from Stranger Things

Products: Top, Jeans, Boots, Wig, Binder, Glasses, Watch

If you want to pay homage to Stranger Things but don’t want to go as Eleven, try dressing up as Barb! (Poor Barb. She deserved better.) 

Venture into the Upside-Down in your Barb costume with a ruffled plaid top and high waisted jeans. Next, add a short red wig and accessorize with retro glasses and a binder. And for the love of God, stay away from swimming pools.  

Pokemon Go Trainer 

Products: Jacket, Romper, Leggings, Sneakers, Backpack, Gloves, Hat

Not that big on Stranger Things? Pay tribute to another of the biggest hits of the summer: Pokemon Go

For a Pokemon Go trainer costume, pair a romper with a cropped hoodie (you can buy exact replicas of the Pokemon Go hoodies on Etsy) and layer it over leggings. Next, add a pair of fingerless gloves, some sneakers, and a trainer hat. Go forth and catch ’em all! 

Jessica Jones

Products: Jacket, Tank (similar), Scarf, Jeans, Boots, Bag 

I haven’t had the chance to watch Luke Cage yet (I have an exam coming up and I know that if I start, I’ll have to binge watch the whole season), but I loved last year’s Jessica Jones! Luckily, a Jessica Jones costume is super easy to put together! 

A leather jacket, distressed jeans, and moto boots are all you really need to capture Jessica Jones’s style, but a healthy dose of eyeliner and a paper bag (to hold your beverage of choice) will really pull this Halloween costume together.  

Alexander Hamilton 

Products: Coat, Shirt, Vest, Jeans, Belt, Boots, Buttons

Are you young, scrappy, and hungry? Make sure this founding father’s story gets told by dressing up as Hamilton from the hit musical!  

For your Alexander Hamilton costume, start with a ruffled white blouse, waistcoat, and jeans, and accessorize with a belt and riding boots. This costume will require a bit of DIY: sew gold buttons to a blue coat to mimic the look of Hamilton’s uniform. (Even if you can’t find a coat, the rest of the outfit is pretty much what the ensemble members wear!) Do not throw away your shot! 

Last but not least, here’s one more idea: wear a normal Han Solo outfit, but add a halo and angel wings.  (Too soon?!) 

What did you think? 

Would you wear these costumes? Do you have a pop culture costume in mind? Let us know in the comments!
