Need help creating the perfect outfit? Here's some AMAZING looks put together by our resident Fashion Expert, Bjorn Nasett. Each month Bjorn chooses two great ensembles (created from items found at Goodwill) and explains exactly how he went about pulling them together!

 

Robert - Modern & Stylish

Posted by Jamie Klinger-Krebs on Feb 1, 2015 12:00:00 AM

Robert, our teenage model, is another example of just how easy it is to dress up a rather casual pair of slacks with a blazer. The Covington brand blue-gray chinos were a great start to build the look with. Because this young man is already quite the fashionable guy, we utilized a few pieces from his own wardrobe to pull it all together, including the short-sleeved blue checked-pattern button down, AND his own blue-gray windowpane patterned blazer!  Where Goodwill came in was with some cool accessories like the black-and-blue pinstripe vest from Carbon Black, and two versions of classic neckties, the Marco Polo multicolored tie, and the black-and-white polka dotted bow tie! Like I said before, Robert knows his style so we co-opted his ultra-cool Converse All Star lace ups, in a light and dark brown canvas, which kept the look fun and accessible as well. We also slipped on a pair of Bjorn’s own sunglasses to emulate a high-fashion feeling. Dressed up, but not stuffy is how I would describe this modern and stylish look for a modern and stylish young man!

Robert's Favorite Item: Marco Polo tie

Rachel - Trendy Layered Look

Posted by Jamie Klinger-Krebs on Feb 1, 2015 12:00:00 AM

Rachel is our model this month, and at the time of the photo shoot she was just about to have her second child! This month our focus in on blazers, so we did a trendy layered look for this lovely mom that looks fashionable, yet fun. When it comes to clothing, we all know nothing fits like, or feels better, than a great pair of jeans! So here we started by using Rachel’s own dark-wash jeans as a base. From there we added a black, white, and tan print blouse from Lane Bryant which adds some contrast and texture to our bohemian look. Next up is a terrific black blazer with an easy fit that can accommodate her changing figure in just the right ways. This one is a high-quality piece from JH Collectible, and the cut of it worked so well with the lovely blouse! The lengths of both were perfect for allowing us to leave the blouse untucked! Now on to the fun part ... the accessories. A cool, vintage-style medallion necklace draws the eye up and the cool sunglasses, as well as an awesome vintage straw hat help frame her radiant face. Some small drop earrings with pearls and a beaded bracelet are all we needed to complete this daytime look. The tan flats are a wardrobe staple that Rachel brought with her to the shoot. FYI, neutral color shoes such black, nude and brown should always be the backbone of your footwear collection. These colors can be combined effortlessly with almost anything you might wear, so make sure to have a wide variety!  Rachel comes across here as comfortable, funky, and above all, happy!
