What to Wear.. to a Blind/First Date

Samira's look

It’s a date night! What do you see yourselves wearing?

 

Dating in New York sucks, in fact it doesn’t just suck. It’s the worst. We’ve all met guys in bars who turn out to be hideous and thus have had to resort to blind dates set up by friends or even making an OkCupid account. We’ve been there. And to add to the stress of the whole situation it’s always hard to know what to wear. Casual, dressy, girlie, edgy. We decided to pull together our favorite date looks for you! Samira from Finland was kind enough to model our looks for us! Happy Sunday and we hope one of them works out for you!

Sasha’s Look

“Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak”

My number one rule for going out on dates is never to be too casual, you never know where the night is going to take you! My look for Samira is fun, girlie and a little bit edgy. An outfit than can progress from drinks at a wine bar to a dance party at the Blind Barbour. The over the knee boots and flirty dress are super sexy worn together and I edged it up with a soft and sleek fur gilet and the ultimate accessory any girl can own, a Balmain belt.

Torpad’s Look

“Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world”

Now this one is taking the most of my time to put together but first/blind date always does that to me anyway. Lately, I’m kinda into a masculine style and I hardly wear dress or skirt. So I give Samira a disco pants and a white flow-ey top that would look both casual and semi-hot together. I don’t really want to go over the top for the first time. The plaid blazer will tone down the sleekness of the look and give a little bit of a cool retro vibe, which I love to put here and there. I add the Alexander Wang bucket bag to give her little edge. Then throw in black Hermes heels (which is surprisingly comfy, you can dance all night with that!) and let her long wavy hair goes naturally messy to keep it simple, like “oh! I didn’t even put any effort into this look at all” kinda simple.

Anahita’s Look

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”

For a first date always remember not to look overdressed. Your style has to be simple yet polished, without looking like you’ve tried so hard to be hot. Samira is wearing skinny leather pants, giving her a sexy and feminine silhouette. Including some wedge sneakers and an oversized glitter top to the outfit breaks the sexiness brought by the leather pants and gives Samira an edgy feel. The studded headband adds a girly touch to the look and accessorizes perfectly Samira’s long poney-tail. The Balenciaga bag constitutes the ultimate rock & roll piece of the outfit, achieving the exquisite combination of femininity, edginess and sophistication.

What to Wear.. to a Christmas Party

style, fashion, christmas

Don’t know what to wear to a Christmas dinner/party?

 

Its the holiday season yet again, and everyones trying to pull together outfits for office parties or Christmas cocktails at friends place. It’s always hard to figure out what exactly you want to wear or what’s appropriate. We’ve come up with three different and unique looks, for you to take inspirations from for your next Christmas Party. Our model is Renata, from Mexico, we love her look and we hope you do too. Happy Holidays!!

Sasha’s Look

“I’m not addicted to drugs, I’m addicted to glamour”

  • Dress: All Saints
  • Coat: Vintage
  • Bracelet: SOHO
  • Clutch: YSL
  • Shoes: Boutique in Malaysia

I love glamor, glitter and everything dark so I decided to dress Renata in something fabulous and sultry, but kept it young by adding a neon yellow bracelet in. The fur collar of the coat is very old school New York winter, and goes perfectly with the All Saints fully embellished dress which I selected. The icing on the cake of the outfit is the deep plum lipstick, something daring, sexy and yet not over the top as I kept the rest of her face make up free.  Shoe wise Renata is wearing some chunky black heels that adds a nice contrast to the glamor of the outfit.

Torpad’s Look

“A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous”

For my look, I choose to go all girly and glittery but classy, it is a special occasion after all. Girls are allowed to have a little fun, right? I’m the kind of girl who love texture and volume, so I decide to mix it all for Renata. The peplum top and my vintage high waist skirt work well together to give me the volume that I desire. But with this kind of volume, I need to make sure that the shape is still there and belt does make all the different. To keep it together, I put her in the YSL tribute heels that has the same shiny inky blue tone to it. And what would be a better finishing touch than a rosy pink lipstick, some sparkling accessory pieces and a statement clutch that won’t break your wallet.

Anahita’s Look

“One is never overdressed or underdressed with The Little Black Dress”

Renata has a naturally classy and feminine silhouette. She is petite, therefore I favored a black tight dress to valorize her body. By always opting for a Little Black Dress at a party, you can never go wrong. To give a Christmassy yet refined feel to the outfit, I added a glitter belt and a studded waist coat. Waist coats can be matched with everything (pants, skirts, dresses) and dress up every outfit. The silver clutch gives Renata an elegant look while the Louboutin peep-toes sublimates the whole outfit into a symbol of class “a la Francaise”.

Hello and welcome to our world: The Cube!

3 Fashion Girls, 1 Big City, and countless amounts of ‘What do I wear?!’ texts led to a Corona filled night at raunchy downtown club, The Box where ‘Stylist Cubed’ was born! We are adopted Gothamists, coming from Bangkok, Paris and London – Owen Wilson called us the United Colors of Benetton at a vodka fueled night at Kenmare (RIP, you are missed). God knows how we all get along! But we do have one common love: Fashion. We spend our days working at 3.1 Phillip Lim, CHANEL and Saint Laurent, and our nights searching for different and cool restaurants and bars.We have fun, and love our lives even though we look different, dress different and definitely act different (although we all get hit on by the same weirdos, but that’s NYC).

We live in a weird and wonderful world which we have called The Cube, and we would like to invite you to come inside, check out our lives and see if you find our outfits interesting. Got an OkCupid date? We’ve been there, oh we’ve been there, and know exactly what to wear. Fashion interview? Follow our style tips to name it. And if you’ve been lusting after following the leather trend but don’t know how to avoid looking like a dominatrix biker, let us guide you in the right direction!

Check back soon for a new post with three unique takes on an event orientated outfit! And for now, strap on those stilettos and have fun!
