What look would you wear to a fashion interview?

 

 

One of the most nerve-wracking things that any of us can go through is a job interview. How to act what to say do I smile or laugh or remain serious???!!! Too many things going through our heads, and then on top of that stress is always the big question WHAT DO I WEAR???!! Well, since all three of us at Stylist Cubed are currently working in fashion we decided to give you our favorite interview outfits for job interviews in the fashion industry. All three are so different so in fact you could use all of them for different companies. We got our favorite California girl Mimi to model our looks for us!! Enjoy and vote for your favorite one!

Sasha’s Look

“Style is a simple way of saying complicated things.”

This is a simple, classy and put together look that says, I’m fashionable, chic, up to date, and can run around the city all day. Fashion is not as glam as everyone thinks it is, especially when you work in PR like I do. You are on your feet all day, running around to and from shoots and making sure Grace Coddington has 10 gold bracelets not 8. (LOL). I decided to dress Mimi in an outfit that showed fashion and realism of the job all in one. Peplum waist lines and leather are both huge trends of the moment and so I paired this peplum leather top with simple skinny black jeans for a sleek and modern silhouette. The Office driving boots I selected are great, they are really comfortable, go with everything and have a chunky 3.5″ heel. I decided to add some cute and flirty crystal neon earrings to show some color and personality into the outfit. The statement piece of this look is this AMAZING Burberry trench coat. Perfect length, perfect stone color and perfect leather detailing. It brings the look together, and makes Mimi look cool and polished all at the same time. If you really want to rock a fashion interview this is the perfect look for you!

Torpad’s Look

“Wherever you go, make sure you get there in style”

I am in love with my inspiration quote today and I am completely agree with it, especially if you going to an interview at a fashion company. I know it is a fashion world but I don’t want to go overboard like “I just walked out of the runway” (that could wait until you got the job lol) but at the same time, not too formal as well. They need to know who you are and that you actually into fashion. So I give Mimi a grey shirt with flow-ey detailed button-front and instead of putting regular blazer over it, I reach for a white vest with sheer detail instead. Showing a little bit of creativity couldn’t hurt, right? My focal point of this look is definitely the upper part, so I keep it simple on the bottom with black bandage skirt that fit Mimi perfectly. Neutral or black bag is a classic for an interview but with this metal parts, it spices the entire look up a notch. If that’s not enough instead of this black pumps, you could never go wrong with pointy toe heels. Now that you look professionally stylish, it’s time to nail that interview of yours! Wear you best confidence and Good Luck ;)

“A woman can be overdressed but never over elegant”

When looking at Mimi’s look you might think: why would someone be overdressed like this for an interview? Because this is not just ANY interview, this is a fashion interview! And some companies like Dior or Miu-Miu requires their employees to dress up like they are about to go to the fanciest party everyday. When interviewing for those companies, you wanna look your best, which involves showing your knowledge of the brand and if possible, wearing items from brand. In this look, Mimi is elegant, classy and refined. The fashionable detail is of course the gold CHANEL bag, which will be immediately noticed by your interviewer (you would preferably wanna wear it for an interview at CHANEL for example). High heels are mandatory in case of a fashion interview: you want to elongate and refine your silhouette to appear unreachable but smart. And needless to say, in the fashion world, even for an analytical or financial position, physical appearance DO count (sad I know) – so always be aware of this and

How to Wear … An Oversized White Shirt


image-2

 

An oversized white shirt is a sexy addition to any girls’ wardrobe. It looks like you spent the night at your boyfriend’s place and wore it to change up yesterdays’ outfit. Its not only sexy, but also classic and versatile. The problem is that it can sometimes be tough to come up with new and interesting ways to wear it. Most girls wear their favorite oversized white shirt with black leggings and ballet flats or over the knee boots. Cute, but a bit boring and unoriginal. So we decided to come up with three different ways to wear it. Mary from Paris was kind enough to model our looks for us. We love her long reddish brown hair and super long legs! Vote for your favorite look!

Sasha’s Look

“Like a girl gone wild, a good girl gone wild”

Wow, my outfit really looks like an advert for Urban Outfitters! Super unintentional! Although everything from there is so cute and wearable so I’m not that sorry! Anyway, my look for Mary is a bit kinky. The over the knee socks and bralette are pretty racey teamed together, especially with the sky high heels that I put her in! At first I got ALOT of complaints from our lovely but opinionated model. But after a few minutes of checking herself out she realized that she was in the perfect going out outfit. There isn’t actually that much skin on show. The little bit of thigh and tiny midriff make a new and funky way of showing a bit of flesh on a night out. The skirt I chose for this outfit is amazing. Its a super soft velvet, and the round skater shape makes the outfit flirty. I didn’t want to have too much jewelry so chose a statement necklace and a simple watch. Adding an oversized white shirt over the top makes the outfit chilled, with an ‘I don’t really give a **** attitude’. I really feel this is a great way to wear an oversized white shirt. Not many people use this item in their wardrobe as a sexy going out outfit, which is such a waste. Hopefully Mary wears this out soon because she looks awesome!!

Torpad’s Look

“Fashion fade, Style is eternal”

If you see me walking down the street, this is probably what you would see me in. Oversized white shirt is an essential to my wardrobe. I wear it to every place from fancy night out to regular day at work/class and I’ve got tons of them! Here is the simplest version of what I usually wear and I think it looks good on Mary too. I gave her navy printed cropped trouser because navy and white always look classy together. To pop some color into the outfit, I add orange lip, orange clutches and orange heels. Man! that’s a lot of orange. You could go by without any accessory and let the shirt be the centered-piece but today I don’t want it to be lonely so I give it a metal necklace as a company. Now we could grab coffee, go for a walk in the park, or just chill with my special guest model “Milo” the cat. Isn’t he so cute in this pic?????

“Fashion is not only to make women more beautiful, but also to reassure them, give them confidence”

It’s not because you’re wearing men’s oversized shirt that you cannot be feminine. Through Mary’s style, I wanted to prove this point. Accessorizing the oversized shirt with a black short renders it girly, sexy and smart at the same time – the look being a total throwback to Britney Spears in “Baby One More Time” haha. Privileging nude legs over tights give a provocative feel to the outfit, which is being de-emphasized  by the traditional black waist coat. The beanie renders the overall look more edgy while the  Muse oversized suede bag brings some class to the mix. What I like about this look is that it can be worn on multiple occasions, at work or school with black tights for example, at a party or for a dinner with friends. This look screams sexy & smart while being simple and easy to put together.

What to Wear.. to an NYU SCPS Party (Men Version)

howto, party, men

Will we see you in any of these looks at the party?

 

 

In collaboration with NYU’s School of Continuing and Professional Studies, we are happy to bring you today a ‘What to Wear’ special post for their annual end of year Holiday Party!! We already, did three great party outfits with our fantastic model Renata, so ladies please check that post out for some great ideas for the party. However, for all the guys out there who don’t want to just wear the same suit over again, we have got three fun and different party outfits for you to take inspiration from! Modeling today, is Glenn from Singapore. We had loads of fun raiding his closet, and picking out three unique looks just for you! Enjoy, and we hope to see you in your best outfits next week!

Sasha’s Look

“Wearing a bow tie is a statement. Almost an act of defiance”

Glenn has a personality, he’s loud and funny and everyone knows who he is. He’s a cool guy but can also be old fashioned at times. His outfit for the NYU SCPS party reflects this. It’s old school vs new school, it’s loud, it’s festive and he’s definitely going to attract a lot of attention (which he’ll love). I’ve paired a deep burgundy velvet blazer and a skinny bow tie with a beanie and black leather sneakers for a current and up to day look on a classicly british cocktail party look. His skinny black trousers and fitted white shirt are the perfect canvases for this combination, and he looks sleek and polished, ready for a night out on the town!

“Dress up your sportswear and dress down your formal wear”

I’ve been wanting to do a makeover for Glenn for ages and now today I finally got the chance! I always see him in sleek with a twist of hipster-ness look. So I want to give him something I’ve never seen him in before. I love to layer different pieces and texture together and I did exactly that for Glenn. Layered him up in formal blazer and sweater is an easy way to tone down any look, yet still stylist. To add to a rustic feel, I throw in the Timberland boots. I want the look to be comfortable, breathable and warmth, so I go with the beige and earthy tone. I know this is for a party, so if you feel like this style is too grudge-y for you, you can change it up with a slim khaki, cut short that would show off your colorful socks or a pair of roll-up jeans. Nothing like earth tones and denim together for a crisp look!

“Fashion is a constant challenge to balance comfort with luxe, the practical with the desirable.”

Glenn is the king of NYU SCPS. He notices everyone and likes to be noticed in return. Kings have to wear studs! Or crowns haha. Glenn has a thin and fit silhouette, therefore using slim cuts for blazers combined with skinny jeans emphasize his body shape and give him a “sculpted” aspect. To dress down the blazer, I decided to use ripped blue skinny jeans. I am a big fan of ripped jeans as they never go out of fashion and can be worn with everything. Styling ripped jeans with a blazer like for Glenn makes them look chic and cool; assorting them with a hoodie or tee-shirt makes them look hipsterish. The white and blue shirt contrasts nicely with the blazer to give Glenn a more casual yet trendy look. The whole idea was for Glenn to look effortlessly chic for the party while standing out from the crowd!

How to Wear.. a Leather Jacket

Lisha's look

How would you wear a leather jacket?

 

The ultimate item that any girl can own is the perfect leather jacket. The key to to find one that fits right, is the right thickness and has enough detail on it to make sure you are comfortable wearing it with everything. They go with everything, and can make a casual outfit instantly trendy and cool, and can dress down even the snazziest of dresses.

All three of us wear our leather jackets in different ways, and so we thought it would be fun to show you three distinct and unique ways to wear yours today! Modelling our three looks is Lisha from South Africa, we thought she looked great in all three looks !

Enjoy!

Sasha’s Look

“The woman is the most perfect doll that I have dressed with delight and admiration.”

As you have probably noticed from my previous posts, I really do love to dress up. So I took this opportunity to show how a well cut and suitably rock n roll leather jacket can dress down and make a dressy outfit have a cool, downtown vibe to it. Dresses and leather jackets are my favorite combo because I love feeling feminine yet cool and slightly more casual. The jacket which I chose for Lisha to model is a staple in my closet. I got it at Topshop two years ago, and it came with a detachable fur collar which I whip out whenever it gets too chilly. It’s quilted detailing is both chic and biker at the same time and the fit is perfect. Paired with a studded asymmetric dress (this hem line us the way forward – glam, sexy and flirty all in one) and some killer leopard boots, Lisha looks like the kind of girl you see on the street and notice.

“Unique and different is the next generation of beautiful”

I am a die hard fan of leather jacket! It goes well with everything, seriously. If you have a malfunction outfit day, just throw in a leather jacket and you will look so much better. Lisha is one of those people who looks amazing with leather jacket on. I give her a long lace skirt and a white sheer American Apparel top to contrast the rock-and-roll feel of the jacket. Button it all the way up and sneak an edgy knee boots to mix up with the feminine vibe. To make this outfit stand out more, I love to mix some colorful accessory and in this case, it is an ink 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli bag. To reinforce how much I love to contrast different style, I give her a bold red lip and a side pony tail. Who say you can’t be sweet and sexy at the same time! The end result: Lisha is chic effortlessly cool.

“Good girl gone bad”

Lisha has an elongated and androgynous silhouette. To contrast with her pale complexion and strengthen her traits, I decided to go for red top and red lipstick. When you have long and thin legs like Lisha, it’s best to adopt a flared skirt like this leather one from Zara, emphasizing the length of her legs while giving her a playful feel – also reinforced by the braided headband. Here, the leather jacket is used as a personality statement: “I am sexy AND confident!” and goes hand-in-hand with the leather skirt. Nothing works better than studded biker boots and a jumbo CHANEL bag to give a silhouette the perfect rock-chic look.

Today I’m Wearing.. Studded Biker Boots

IMG_0567

Hi everyone! So today is much colder than yesterday, therefore I decided to wear my biker boots! I’ve been wanting studded boots for several months now and finally found the perfect pair in a small boutique 2 weeks ago in Midtown. They are short, super comfy and go with basically everything! I love wearing them with leather pants like today, the leather combination gives a glam-rock overall look which I am a fan of. Studded boots also go perfectly with dresses and skirts, with a preference for flared and baby doll cuts. The boots break the innocent and little girl feel of the flared dress to give a more provocative tone to the outfit. I am looking forward to the spring to wear my studded boots with a white lace dress that I have. The opposition of styles (white lace vs. black studded leather) along with nude legs will create the ultimate balance between sexiness, purity and provocation!

Today I’m Wearing.. Fusion of Several Car Coats

coat mm6

I’m in love with Men’s clothes, is that crazy? I’ve been purchasing these menswear a lot lately which is kinda weird because that is not usually the case. My style has changed and transformed A LOT since I intern at 3.1 Phillip Lim. It is amazing how a place where you work has so much influence on you. Ok you might think, “Big deal!” but here is another reason to believe me: I just chopped off my beloved hair that I have been growing since… forever. This is all happens after I start working there. And I’m definitely not complaining.

Ok, enough about that and back to my love at first sight. I walked into H&M one day out of boredom and didn’t really looking to buy anything but something magical happened. It is love at first sight when I laid eyes on this MM6 for H&M coat. I went to the women section but nothing really caught my eyes but when I glided over to men section, this coat is actually screaming my name!!! I love how rustic and retro it looks. The style description on the tag said “Fusion of several car coats”, it is a re-edition of MM6 from various seasons and this one is Spring-Summer 2004. How could I resist that??? I love these little attention to details, it give clothes so much more meaning. This coat is exactly what I’ve been subconsciously looking for: oversized and unique with a vintage element. It can go with basically everything in my closet. But beware! oversized men’s coat is not for everyone, so I suggest trying it on before you swipe your credit card, just to be safe!

Today I’m Wearing … Leopard Print

NYC is boiling, it literally feels like we are in LA right now. I even have my AC on. It’s pretty crazy! It meant that I got to get my legs out for the second day in a row – what a treat!! Today I wore a leopard print skater dress from Topshop, it’s very fitted at the top and flares out gently. It’s the perfect cut for me, because unlike my co-bloggers I’m not a bean pole. It really flatters my waist and makes me feel a little bit like Marilyn Monroe, just not blonde or sultry or a good singer (I really can’t sing). Anyway, I paired it it with some great heels from Steve Madden that I bought just at the end of the summer. They’re the perfect fall color, burgundy and are so versatile I can wear them with almost anything. Plus they are so comfy I can walk in them all day. And on days like today, where I ran around NYC all day dropping off clothes for different magazines, it counted. (PS I almost saw Taylor Swift, almost.). Since it was pretty warm I paired it with a light black trench coat which I got from Massimo Dutti. They just opened in New York in October and I seriously recommend everyone check them out! Everything is amazing, an great quality and wearable. Tomorrow is going to be a lot colder, so check back in then for a completely different look. Good night!

What I’m Wearing.. On My Way To Work

IMG_0557

Today was warm and nice and I don’t know about you, but when it gets warmer I am way more inspired as what to wear! My motto: always dress according to the season and the weather. I stayed true to my rule in picking a white trench-coat, having the magical power to immediately give some allure and class to any outfit. Another thing which I LOVE wearing when it’s not too cold: ballet flats. I’m an unconditional fan of ballet flats, own like a hundred pair of them as they remain my favorite piece to buy no matter what…ok ok…along with bags I guess.

As I work at CHANEL and that basically everyone there wears CHANEL from head to toe, I kind of felt the need to wear my CHANEL flats today (my favs).  They go perfectly with the Burberry Trenchcoat as both items give the same classy-chic feel. I am also a big adept of burgundy which I believe to be THE color of the season, therefore I used my recently acquired burgundy skinny jeans from Zara to match with the black and violet ballerinas. The preppy black and white shirt reinforces the “smart” aspect of the look, the icing on the cake being obviously the Muse bag which to me is a pure symbol of elegance.

Today I’m Wearing.. Statement Headband

Happy Monday everyone! Sasha here! So as Torpad said, we are going to try and upload a photo each day of what we’re wearing to sort of give you an insight into our own personal styles and how they reflect into the outfits we have styled so far, and are going to style in the future! However, unlike Torpad I couldn’t find someone to take a photo of me today! My outfit was pretty simple though, i wore a black skater skirt, a black T and over the knee boots. No tights as it was super warm today so at times I had to ask myself if it was a little slutty or not. Anyway. The main focus of my outfit today was a super cute mermaid-esque headband that my friend Avalonne left at my place a few months ago. It’s been sitting in my apartment feeling lonely, and I felt a bit whimsical today so I decided to give it a day out. Statement headbands are super fun because they can make any simple outfit look fun and flirty immediately, whilst also make you feel like you are playing dress up. Also they always gain tones of attention! So my advice of the day is, you don’t always have to go all out with what you’re wearing. Keep it simple, all black always works, and add a statement piece in for a fun and chic outfit.photo-11

Today I’m Wearing.. Simple and Masculine

torpad dec3

Before the real Winter comes..

Ok this is exciting and a bit nerve-wracking because Sasha came up with an idea for us 3 to post our own everyday look. So you will be seeing a lot of us this week. It is one thing to dress others but ourself!! hmm.. that’s another level for me but anyhow, i will do my best : )

So what I have on today is just simple pieces that I put together. I love clothes that have a good but unique cut (and a bit masculine). My white Uniqlo shirt is oversized because it’s Mens and I pair it with navy flared 3.1 Phillip Lim shorts that look like a skirt to give some character to the look and not too stiff when I put on my favorite long black Uniqlo coat. The weather is quite nice today, so I can get by with a lighter coat, yayy!! I want to keep it tone down color-wise, so I throw in white 31 Hour bag and a black patented H&M oxford because I want the different texture to stand out from my black tight. Aiming for simple but stylish look, do you guys think I achieve it?
