5 Bright Blogger Looks to Try This Week
We help you re-create five amazing looks we’ve bookmarked in the local blogosphere. By Sarah Zlotnick

Alison of Wardrobe Oxygen takes a page right out of J.Crew's holiday catalog, and we are definitely not hating it. In honor of the season change, we swapped out the cowlneck sweater for a silk blouse and opted for an extra-large turquoise satchel to hold all those weekday essentials.

Marc by Marc Jacobs satin top, $137.49; DKNY cropped pants, $255; Urban Expressions satchel, $68; Sam Edelman pumps, $115; House of Harlow 1960 spike bangle set, $139.



We love how Tammy of a Loyal Love popped a collared shirt under a structured sundress--it's one of our fave ways to incorporate something slightly dressier into our workplace wardrobe. If you're hoping to pull off a similar look, stick with dresses with a simple sheath top. The clean cuts of the arms and neck holes will keep you from looking frumpy.

JC Penney necklace, $12; Modcloth dress, $224.99; Paul Smith ballet flats, $375; Madewell shrunken oxford, $68; Modcloth cardigan, $34.99, Ralph Lauren cat-eye sunglasses, $160.


Helllooo, perfect Friday night outfit. Denisio of the Ravenous Creator pulls off one of the flirtiest looks we've seen in a while here, and we can wait to turn heads in our own version come the weekend. Now if only we were brave enough to rock a shaved head . . .

Topshop boyfriend blazer, $130; Delia's miniskirt, $29.50, Shakuhachi one-piece bustier, $200; Ivanka Trump pump, $125; Vince Camuto braided belt, $36.


Alison of Chain Strap Purse demonstrates a great way to do neon and neutrals on the weekend with her relaxed-fit tee and swingy skirt. We toughened things up a bit with a leather mini and knocked down the inches on the heel for extra walkability.

Otte leather skirt, $695; Christopher Kane shirt, $190; Boo & Boo Factory Necklace, $64; Aldo satchel, $50; Lulu's two-tone sandal, $19.



No one is nailing neapolitan stripes quite like designer Heidi Merrick right now, and we're glad to see Leslie of Fashion Needy is paying attention. Sport this look for on a chilly weekend day, and stick with simple accessories. Jackie O. sunglasses, nude pumps, and a simple ring will keep all eyes focused on the clean lines of your shirts and jeans.

Heidi Merrick shirt, $350; Mossimo skinny denim, $22.99, KORS Michael Kors patent pump, $195; Mango sunglasses, $24.99; Kendra Scott ring, $50.

    very much appreciate the intent of your article as well as the obvious abundant effort required to assemble each outfit, but what a sad, sad day for fashion - or the lack there-of. I love generous vibrant colors but this style looks like something my 4 year old would assemble.
    Of course no offense intended toward the bloggers preceeding me.

  • Haute off the Press

    All on point!

  • Jasmine // Web Haute Jas

    loooove this! well deserved features ladies! they look great!

  • I love all of these selections! I am a huge fan of color but I realize that I do not implement this enough in my looks. That gots to change this coming Spring season.
