Constantly impressed with how impeccably put together celebrities are? Stylist to the stars Monica Rose is here to fill you in on all her secrets to building a perfect outfit.
Monica has dressed fashionistas like Gigi Hadid and Chrissy Teigen and knows all the tricks to making a look come together.
Check out some of her best tips and tricks below.
1. Great Accessories Take Athleisure To The Next Level
Models like Gigi Hadid and sister Bella Hadid have become known for their epic athleisure but it turns out it takes more than matching Adidas sets to create a look. Monica says the secret is a great jacket and handbag. She said,
“A standout jacket is always cool.”
“Reebok does great high-waisted gym leggings, which I pair with a more upscale jacket and a great handbag. I feel like that’s a good balance. And accessories always help to make something look less casual if you want to disguise the fact that you’ve been in gym clothes all day!”
2. Red Lipstick Can Pull Together Literally *Any* Outfit
According to Monica, you can never go wrong with a red lip when trying to take things up a notch.
“Red lipstick immediately dresses up a look. Or something unexpected like a statement earring.”
3. White Sneakers Are the Perfect Versatile Accessory
Monica’s favorite shoes? the classic white sneaker, of course! She said,
“I think the thing about the Classic Leather sneaker is that you can wear it with anything because it’s so versatile. So your look can be super modern and you can still keep your sneaker classic, white and timeless. Versatility is the key for pieces that never go out of style and there’s something nice about having an item that’s familiar to you and constant, even if you are experimenting with different looks, seasons, or evolving your style.”
4. All You Need is One Statement Item
Turns out you don’t have to own thousands of dollars worth of clothes to be a fashionista. According to Monica, you only need one or two statement-making pieces to bring it on home.
“I’m always into hats. I’m a hat girl. I styled Kendall in a great Saint Laurent fisherman hat as an airport look but you can get amazing versions just as great from vintage stores for a few dollars. That’s a nice touch that’s not too ‘out there’ or difficult to try.”
“Another one is statement earrings, which I’m working a lot with lately. You don’t need to be super experimental but putting on an over-sized earring either with a casual tee or a more dressy look is a great way to try something different.”
