I’d go with the green or imperial purple, colors that compliment dark skin nicely.
I actually love taupe on darker skin tones because of the contrast. I would just suggest getting what color you feel the most comfortable wearing & will get the most use out of. I’m not big on certain colors on me so I don’t wear them often & that would be a waste of money if you bought pants and rarely wore them. Kill it doll!
I’m not encouraging you to think that because you’re dark skin you have a select set of colors to wear. HEY…. wear whatever color appeals to you the most.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with lip colors but I dont see wearing glasses as a set back. You can do all the things someone without glasses can do. Stay chic!!
I have to agree with Tima 100%. Do you see your glasses as a set back? Coming from someone who has worn glasses since the 4th grade, that’s going to be something you’re going to have to come to terms with (and you will) on your own time. Personally, I love glasses (now), one more accessory you have to play with; a funky frame can be a signature look. In addition to lip colors, experiment with different hairstyles and earrings.
I wash all my colored clothing in cold water to keep them from bleeding color onto other items. It also keeps my clothes from fading as fast. I also hang up thin shirts instead of putting them in the dryer. It keeps them from shrinking and getting holes in them. Those are the only things I do to help preserve my clothes.
Best thing in my opinion that keeps clothes and shoes looking new is leaving them in the store. I’m just teasing try buying some Silica packets, they keep shoes from dry rotting. Also a good thing that keeps clothes looking like new is when washing, turn them on the wrong side and handwash.
First let me just say I LIVE for Dorothy Dandridge. She was the epitome of style, grace, class, and sophistication. Watching her movies as a little black girl truly inspired me.. Ok Im done lol. You can totally achieve that retro 1950’s look without ever wearing a skirt or heels. I mean just google celebs from that era in the their down time and most of them wore high waisted slacks, cute button up blouses showing a bit of mid driff, with flats. Peg leg slacks, polo shirts, cropped cardigans, and a cute neck tie scarf would all look fab!! Add a cat eye with a red lip and you’re a hot rockabilly chick!! Stay chic!!
Hii Jordann!! Maybe your parents wouldnt mind if you experimented with your nails. Plus once you learn to give yourself mani/pedi’s you’ll be saving plenty of cash. Once a week pick up a new polish. If you live near a CVS there is a brand called Spoiled and those are only 99 cents. Mix and match, create nail art, and hopefully the rents will approve. Stat chic!!
Start with something small like your nails as Tima suggested. You could also try funky accessories. Maybe some accessories with a print or in a bright color. It won’t be as noticeable as a complete change in style.
The words “parents”, “cool” and “approve” do not appear anywhere in the online universe, I googled it. Saying that though, take a look at our tutorial page and see if there’s anything there you can try.
There is nothing I love more than an all white ensemble! I feel like it makes a statement all on its own and you will never go unnoticed. Maybe you can do a nice sheer white top, with white shorts, and an out toe gold shoe, with gold accessories. Or go for a Miami vibe with a sexy dress or cute and fun dress. Stay chic!!
Honestly it comes with time. At least that’s what happened with me. I realized that if I’m happy with the way I look then that’s all that’s important. You can’t please everyone so please the person that matters the most YOU! Keep killing it doll!
Over the years(Im not that old lol)Ive come to realize when people have mean and negative things to say about others its usually how they feel about themselves. Those girls were really just upset because they feel as if they couldnt pull off your 60’s inspired look. Continue to be who you are and love every moment of it girl, and never let a soul tell youre not FIERCE!! Stay chic!!
Anything bright and sparkly lol. Vegas is all about the bold, adventurous, and being over the top so a cute, tight, mini, sequin dress would be great but if you want to go a different route why not try a black or red cat suit with spiked Litas. Stay chic!!
I agree with Tima. A sequin dress would be gorgeous. If you can’t find a sequin dress then anything dramatic would be great. Kill it doll!
I understand what youre saying. Stars like Diana Ross, Patti Labelle, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, and Rihanna all have a “look” its as if they were born to be stars when you see them. I think you should really think about what you see for yourself. For instance if you see yourself as a glamour girl then find new and inventive ways to take it to the next level. Or if you’re more of the hot chick with an edge maybe something like this would work for you and help you stand out from the crowd. Stay chic!!
When it comes to creating an image as an artist, the most important factor, is your music. What kind of music do you want to sing? You want an image that can appeal to the masses, but you have to remain true to your craft, and your fan base, that’s where the loyalty and support is. You can do colorful in different ways, you can keep it monochromatic or do color blocking.
I think when it comes to reinventing your style you should choose things that accent your figure. We have answered a lot of questions about about how to style different body types so check out our previous responses for some insight on where to start. Kill it doll!
That good ol’ Texas heat! I understand, first hand, Houston, TX born and raised! For a professional interview, you always want to keep it simple and look professional. A black or navy pants suit would be ideal, with a white button down. Your shoes should be a heel of a modest length, and closed. Another option would be a pair of slacks and a light weight cardigan. Your top doesn’t have to be a button down, but no cleavage should be visible at all. If you choose to go for a cardigan, go for a black, gray, or pastel color. When it comes to jewelry; earrings, should be studs, and only one pair should be worn, no facial piercings, a simple necklace (a strand of pearls or thin chain), one ring (wedding band, class ring…) no statement pieces. If you opt for a skirt instead of the slacks, make sure that when you sit down, your skirt covers your knees, and that you have on flesh tone stockings. Good luck!
I got all mine from Forever21 and Walmart. You can order them pretty much anywhere that sells scarves. Kill it doll & make sure you check out our video 8 Ways to Kill It with a Scarf
I think loose waves or big curly hair would be cute. If you’re going to swim then just go for something simple like a ninja bun. As far as an outfit why not show a little skin with an oversized crop top & denim cutoffs or a brightly colored or printed maxi dress. I also would love a romper and a fedora. Kill it doll!
I say keep it easy, breezy and rock out with a maxi dress. You can wear your swim suit underneather so theres no hassle about changing. As far as your hair I agree with Danni, a nice bun will do. Stay chic!!
Whats up Wisconsin!!! Lol I love combat boots too just because theyre perfect for harsh NYC winters. I found a few pairs that are cool and edgy that are in your price range. Style #1 and style #2. You can also check out eBay to see if there are any vintage or never worn boots listed up there. Stay chic!!
Blazers look great with just about everything. They look cute with dresses, skirts, shorts. You can dress them up with a pencil skirt, tank, pumps, and pearls or you can dress them down with shorts, a graphic tee, and combat boots. Have fun trying some different styles. Kill it doll!
