Fancy Friday: Easy Ways to Dress Up Your Casual Staples

TGIFF! If you were wondering…the extra “F” is for “Fancy”. Here at the Zappos HQ, office dress code leans a lot towards the casual side. However, there are certain days that just call for a dose of fancy…Why not Friday?

Think about it. You’ve survived a long workweek full of meetings, errands and day-to-day stresses. End the week with major style--or should we say, start the weekend off right by getting your fancy on! It’s all about dressing up and feeling confident as you head into the weekend! And believe us, a pair of fancy heels, a cute skirt or dapper loafers can do some amazing things to re-energizing your entire style outlook.

Below are just a few easy ways to dress up some of your favorite casual staples like jeans, t-shirts and sweatshirts.

Casual Fridays? We say break away from the usual and start your own Fancy Friday trend instead!

For Her:

Boyfriend Jeans

featured style: Levi’s® Women’s 501 Customized Jeans

+

Sky-High Heels

featured style: Nine West Tatiana Pumps

Pairing relaxed-fit denim with dressier heels adds up to such an effortlessly chic look for both day and night. We particularly love oversized boyfriend jeans paired with super sexy pumps. It just elevates the look and keeps the jeans from looking frumpy.

 

Basic Tees

featured style: Splendid Vintage Whisper V-Neck Tee

+

Skirts

featured style: kensie Ponte Skirt

The unsung hero of our closets, basic tees are surprisingly versatile for a lot of different occasions. To dress up a simple cotton t-shirt, pair it with a knee-length skirt for the office, and a sparkly mini skirt for a night out. You can even let a printed or sequined skirt shine by pairing it with a very basic tee. It’s all about striking that perfect balance of laidback and feminine.

 

Sweatshirts/Pullover

featured style: Free People In A Hurry Hoodie

+

Leggings

featured style: HUE Floral Gleam Denim Skimmer Legging

Comfy up top, party in the bottom. That’s sort of the vibe this combo achieves with a mix of relaxed and dressy all in one easy-to-wear outfit. Take your oversized grey sweaters and sweatshirts up a notch with printed or textured leggings. The great part is, you can really go all out with the leggings here since the sweater is the more subdued element in this equation. Who says a sweatshirt has to be frumpy? Not with this killer combo!

For Him:

Chino Pants

featured style: Volcom Frickin Modern Stretch Chino

Chino pants are a great wardrobe staple any day of the week. To dress them up for the office or date night, grab a pair of classic men’s loafers to instantly add some refined style.

 

Basic Tees

featured style:  Alternative Crew Tee

+ 

Tailored Trousers

Top Swimwear Styles for Spring & Summer

Summer is around the corner, but some of the season’s most fabulous swimwear is here now!

With pool season around the corner and resort season in full swing, finding that perfect swimsuit can be quite a source of anxiety. Finding that perfect look can be difficult when stores don’t even have their full size and style selection in stock. Lucky for you Zappos carries a wide assortment of swimsuits and I’m here to give you a peek at some of the amazing styles this season has to offer. No matter what shape you are or how much (or little) skin you want to show off, we have the perfect swimsuit for you!

If you are into the retro look, let me direct your attention to the brand Unique Vintage. They have an assortment of separates and one-piece suits that flatter the figure and bring that old Hollywood glamour. The classic lines and fuller coverage look great on curves and are sure to be a confidence booster when everyone is checking you out poolside.

swimwear, women's swimwear, bikinis, swimsuits, swim separates, bikini tops, bandeau tops, halter bikini tops, swimwear for your body type, Unique Vintage, Shoshanna Swimwear, Miraclesuit, Body Glove, Seafolly, BECCA by Rebecca Virtue, Seafolly, Vitamin A Swimwear, women's swim, Tommy Bahama Swimwear, L*Space Swimwear, L*Space,

If you prefer a more classic look, then a one-piece suit may be for you. There are plenty of options to choose from depending on your style and body type! If you want that one-piece look but still want to show off some skin, try one with an open back and plenty of sexy side cutouts.

If you prefer a little more coverage, look for a more classic cut with a figure-flattering front ruched detail. Check out a one-piece style by Miraclesuit as they offer suits that help create a slim silhouette. Try one that flaunts a wrap-style front with shirring that flatters your figure and creates the coveted hourglass silhouette.

Next, there is the tried-and-true bikini. There are a multitude of tops and bottoms to fit the look you want. There is always the classic triangle halter top that works well for smaller busts and petite ladies.

Ladies who need that extra support on top should look for thicker halter straps or tops with side boning and underwire support. Two great brands that  provide stylish options for bustier women are BECCA by Rebecca Virtue and Seafolly. No fear of wardrobe malfunctions here!

And unless you plan on going commando (which we wouldn’t suggest!), you will need a bikini bottom to match. If you want a more playful look, try a cheeky design that shows off your best assets. If you are looking for a little more coverage there are plenty of cute options as well! Brands like Carve Designs even offer reversible bikini bottoms for two unique looks for the price of one.

Top off your pool or beachside look with a cover-up you’ll be ready to strut your stuff with confidence! As the days get longer and the weather gets warmer, spending time by the water while you work on your tan will become all you can think about and I hope that this little swimwear guide helps you find some direction when you shop for your summer look. Don’t forget the sunscreen!

Lucky You: Great Looks to Make Them Green with Envy

St. Patrick’s Day is a celebration of Ireland’s unique history and culture celebrated by both the Irish (and those who wish they were!) all over the world. Revelers as far back as the 1680s believed that wearing green clothing made one invisible to leprechauns and fairy creatures, and thus they would be saved from the painful pinches these creatures would bestow on those they could see. In later years, revelers took it upon themselves to pinch those not wearing green, just in case there were no leprechauns around to do it!

These days, we celebrate being Irish (or wanting to be Irish) with green beer, good whiskey, parades, and if we’re really lucky, attending a good cèilidh where we can do all of the above while dancing and drumming the night away. Of course, you’ll want to have an amazing green outfit and gorgeous green accessories to keep those pinches away. Why not look fabulous while hiding from mischievous leprechauns!

I’ve gathered a few great pieces this week to hide you from the wee folk and maybe make a few Irish eyes smile upon ye. Here’s to an amazing and fun St. Patrick’s Day for all! Enjoy amazing company, great food and maybe even some good Irish whiskey. Sláinte!

Fresh Picks: Rebel, Rebel

Sometimes, a girl just has to embrace her rebellious side. Whether it’s wearing your hair a different way or breaking out a pair of totally show stopping heels for girls’ night out—there’s a little rebel in all of us!

Luckily, one of the hottest trends of the season involves a healthy helping of rebellious, punk-inspired style. From moto jackets to studded shoes to a plaid shirt borrowed from the boys, this trend throws caution to the wind and allows you really show off a sassier side to your style persona.

Have fun with this one! We’d suggest pairing any of these styles with a bold red lip, tousled hair and a spontaneous attitude to go along with it!
