Jerricka - Rocker Chic

Posted by Jamie Klinger-Krebs on Oct 1, 2013 12:00:00 AM

Jerricka, a new model in our Goodwill family LOVED this look when we tried it on during a fitting. This is early fall at its best. Texture, pattern, and monochromatic color palettes always work wonders. The leopard print skinny jeans from BDG combined so well with the black boots that our model already owned that we set a course to go for rocker chic as our final fashion destination. The key piece here was this awesome black fringe strapless top from Charlotte Russe, that when worn with the boots and jeans makes it more daytime playful than evening sexy.  Fortunately for our picture, Jerricka had a black leather motorcycle jacket that added the biker element and brings this tough-girl look together in a good way. To soften up all those rough edges we kept her styling super feminine, with coral red lipstick, pink nail polish, and a tousled curly hairstyle. TIP: Grooming is just as important as the clothes themselves! Last but not least, before this gal takes to the road are the pieces of jewelry that make a bold statement, like the gold necklace, tribal bracelet and oversize black earrings. Now, who’s ready to rumble with Jerricka as she rallies the flag of fun fall fashion?

Matt - Unforced Fashion

Posted by Jamie Klinger-Krebs on Oct 1, 2013 12:00:00 AM


Matt has been one of our favorite models for a while now.  He serves as an illustration, as well as an inspiration for guys that want to step up their style, but look comfortable doing it. Here we started off with a pair of jeans that Matt already owned and liked. TIP: A guy should have only a few pairs of good fitting jeans instead of a bunch of ill-fitting ones. Layering your clothes is ALWAYS the key to creating a cool outfit. A graphic print tee shirt by Sonoma in a blue/yellow design is a good start for this look. It adds just the right amount of color. The next layer is a vintage Town Craft button down dress shirt that has a subtle pinstripe in brown and black. It adds some contrast to the lightweight jacket that is the perfect topper for fall or early spring, too. This is another vintage piece from Lee in brown poly/cotton blend fabric. It has western detailing as well as topstitched seams that just make it more interesting. A brown leather belt and Matt’s own well-worn hiking boots keep it on trend, yet realistic. Unforced fashion is always the right thing to do.

Matt's Favorite Item: Boots or jeans
