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.. 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.

Torpad’s Look

“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.

Anahita’s Look

“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.

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.

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.

“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.

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.

“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.

“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”.
