Night Styler: Queen for a Day

702cleopatra1.jpg[In early adulthood there is an activity that plays a large role in most of our lives; nights out on the town. And with those nights out always comes the question: “What am I gonna wear?!?”

Each week I’ll be putting together a cute and affordable “going out” ensemble guide (that you can tweak to your own personal style and body type, of course) so that maybe that age-old question can be answered a little quicker than usual. And your friends aren’t waiting – for hours – for you to emerge from your room. Just consider me your own (free) personal Rachel Zoe. Only I weigh more than 88 pounds.]

It’s hard to believe we’ve already hit the middle of March (where DOES the time go?!?) and that before we know it, we’ll be complaining about the heat rather than the cold. But for now it’s time to enjoy the warmer days and the ability to wear cuter clothes without having to layer on the sweaters, jackets, scarves and ear muffs.

This spring promises to bring in loads of new and recycled trends and one of those is the Cleopatra-inspired look (which includes asymmetrical tops & dresses, harem pants, and jeweled necklines). Being that we’re all queens deep down, I thought I’d base this week’s Night Styler on this sassy trend. Don’t worry; there are no harem pants here. I’m not down with looking like MC Hammer either.

This adorable top really plays up the jeweled neckline with a beautiful and unique design, and the navy color and pleating mean it’ll also slim you down.

Skinny, boot leg and boyfriend jeans will all be making appearances this season, but you can never go wrong with a cute pair of straight leg jeans. These puppies look fantastic with heels.

A sexy pair of platform sandals will do the trick when it comes to shoes and I am loving these ones from Forever 21. Even more fabulous? The under-$25 price tag.

The beading on the neckline is an accessory in itself, so there’s no need to over-accessorize…a simple pair of gold hoops, a couple small bangles and a cute handbag’ll do the trick.

Now all you have to do is get out there and enjoy the warm(er) weather while lookin’ damn hot.
