An ii Style Tip on Dressing Up Cutoffs

I live in cutoffs these days.While more times than not it's to hit the beach or the pool there are times when I'm running out to meet friends for an afternoon happy hour on a Summer Friday and steaming out a dress just isn't in the books. Enter the elevated cutoff outfit suitable for drinks, dinner and not at a dive bar. Pair it with a silky tank, a slightly oversized blazer (I love this Zoa ...

What to Wear: Summer Wedding Guest Edition

With summer wedding season in full swing finding a versatile dress fit to be worn for an evening ceremony and dancing or a beachside sunset wedding can be a tedious task.

That fete is damn near impossible. Dinner dates are the hardest. You could find yourself at that cool underground Ramen spot that’s only open from midnight to 4 am or maybe it’s carb and wine filled romantic ...

Not Your Average Basic B White Shirt

Wardrobe essentials such as a white shirt don't have to be so mind numbingly basic. Just because they are a necessity to round out your wardrobe does not mean that you need to sacrifice your own personal style to fit this mold.
