How to: Dress for a Super Bowl Party

In case you don’t follow sports, Super Bowl Sunday is this weekend. Naturally, we’ve been preparing by picking out the perfect cute and casual outfits to rock at all the amazing parties. And of course, we picked a color scheme that reflects the two teams playing (The SF 49rs who are red and gold and the Baltimore Ravens who are purple and black, so you can impress your friends).

The second we put the team colors on two of our models, they started to hash it out to decide who would win beforehand. Don’t worry, no one was actually hurt. We called it a tie between the two models, so you’ll just have to tune into the Bowl on Sunday to find out who really wins!

2013 SAG Awards: Red Carpet Fashion and Memorable Moments

Sunday night’s Screen Actors Guild Awards was full of fun, fashion, and heartfelt speeches from award-winning actors. Jennifer Lawrence’s wardrobe malfunction aside, everyone pretty much looked amazing. In case you missed the show, here are a few of our favorite looks and hilarious moments!

Who do you think was best dressed at the SAG Awards this year?

Inspiration Gallery: Creepers

There are plenty of 90s trends we’d love to leave in the past, but these funky shoes have crept right back into our hearts and onto our feet. Paired with other current trends like printed sweaters and feminine skirts, these totally rad shoes are given an updated look. We also think they are pretty awesome paired with reruns of 90s sitcoms. They might be making us a little bit nostalgic, but some things just never get old.

Here’s a little inspiration for styling your favorite retro shoes with modern trends!

How do you style creepers?

Happy Birthday, Alicia Keys!

If you looked up the definition of cool in the dictionary, you’d probably find a picture of Alicia Keys. The singer/songwriter has had us hooked on her catchy melodies, empowering lyrics, and fashion-forward sense of style for years. Needless to say, we were pretty excited to hear that she’ll be singing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl this year.

So happy 32nd birthday, Alicia! Here’s to 32 more years of amazing performances and smooth style.

Microtrend: Galaxy Prints

If you were a fan of the hit 80’s/90’s fantasy sitcom, Out Of This World, you’re gonna love this trend! We started seeing these galaxy printed pieces a few months ago. But what started off as a few sprinkles of cosmic-coolness has recently gone mainstream. This totally nebular celebration of the universe is a great way to play with colors and add a little (extraterrestrial) life to your look. Take a look at our collection of all things galaxy and get ready to lose your mind!

1. mesh accent galaxy bodysuit 2. distressed graphic galaxy tank 3. galaxy leggings 4. galaxy print shorts 5. camo print tee 6. graphic tiger sweater

Have you tried the galaxy trend? Do you love it as much as we do?

Remix: Faux Leather Skirt Edition

You know when you completely fall in love with something, but you just don’t know how to wear it? It happens to all of us. We’re here to help you out, though. We’ve taken one of our favorite pieces right now, a faux leather mini, and styled it for a casual day of shopping and for a dressy date night. Since we’ve been totally loving big cat graphics and mint lately, we decided they should be incorporated, too.

Here are the deets:

Outfit 1: faux leather studded skirt, big cat sweatshirt, textured faux leather handbag, faux suede ankle boots, embellished leopard hinge bracelet, layered geometric necklace

Do you remix your wardrobe staples to create different looks?

Microtrend: The Return of Mint

Last spring, all things minty fresh emerged onto the fashion scene with a big, pastel bang. This year, mint is making its return in every shape and size imaginable. From shoes to watches to bags, we plan on being completely decked out in the cool hue this spring. Here are a few of our favorite minty picks.

1. wedge sneakers, 2. two-tone purse, 3. cut-out polka dot dress, 4. zigzag face watch, 5. textured triangle earrings, 6. slip closure clutch, 7. studded loafers

What hues have you been loving lately?

Happy Birthday, Kate Moss!

Today, Kate Moss is celebrating her 39th birthday. Although looking at her, you’d never know it. Here’s to many more years of style and beauty from one of our all-time favorite models!

Behind the Scenes + Sneak Peek: Leopard, Tiger, and Peplum (oh my!)

We know you’re totally ready to start shedding layers and rocking florals, so we’ve got a little peek of spring pastels for you. And a little leopard and a ferocious tiger, just to keep you looking extra fierce. Or to help you blend in with any wildcats you may encounter while following a certain yellow brick road. So check out a few of our Behind the Scenes shots, and be sure to tell us what outfits you’re loving.

How to: Color Chain Link Jewelry

We’ve been loving rocking chain link jewelry with everything lately, but after a while, simple silver and gold links can leave us wanting more. More color, that is! We decided it was time to give new life to some of our favorite bracelets with a little colored Plasti Dip. After a few minutes of dipping and drying, we had a bold and colorful new trendy bracelet.

Here’s our finished look.

What you’ll need: Create Your Color Plasti Dip, Plasti Dip tint, an aluminum can, chain link metal jewelry, and a plastic spoon.

Tip: You can find Plasti Dip at most hardware, auto, and home stores.

Pour enough Plasti Dip to cover half of your jewelry into an aluminum can. This will allow you to save the rest for another project since you don’t need very much for this one. It should be about three inches high.

We decided to color our bracelet seafoam, but you can do whatever color you want. Whatever color you choose, pour the lightest tint you’ll need into the mixture first. Stir with a plastic spoon.

Mix in the next color, but only pour in a small amount at a time so your color doesn’t get too dark too quickly.

Mix in your final color. If you only need two colors, skip this. If the mixture isn’t quite the shade you want it to be, play with the colors a little always adding the lightest first. Stir the mixture thoroughly so you don’t see any streaks.

Slowly dip your bracelet into the Plasti Dip, lowering it a little more every 5 seconds. Then, slowly lift the bracelet out of the Plasti Dip in 5 second increments.

Hold your bracelet over the can for at least a minute to let the excess Plasti Dip drip off.

Hold your bracelet for a couple minutes to make sure it isn’t dripping anymore. It should start to solidify, but won’t be dry yet. If you plan to do a second coat, let your bracelet dry for 30 minutes before you dip it again. Once finished, hang your bracelet to dry for at least four hours (preferably more) before wearing.

Wear your bright, new jewelry!

Trendy Celebrities are Layering Up

Summer may be long gone, but several celebrities and fashionistas have figured out how to wear their favorite summer styles in cooler temperatures. Of course, you could always add a coat, but that would cover up your pretty dress! Instead, try layering a button-up shirt, blouse, or tee under your favorite frocks. It will give your dress a cool-weather vibe that will keep you feeling warm and looking stylish. Here are a few of our favorite celebs rocking the layered trend.

How do you layer your dresses for cooler weather?

How to: Glitter Sole Heels

Do you ever feel the need to just cover everything you own in glitter? We, admittedly, have often thought things would look better with a little extra sparkle. And lately, we’ve been noticing that tons of high fashion designers agree. Which is why we are so obsessed with this DIY project. It’s easy, fun, subtle yet glamorous, and it involves a whole lot of glitter. Plus, you already have most of the supplies at home. So grab your favorite heels, and get ready to get your sparkle on.

Our Finished Look.

What you’ll need: Heels, Mod Podge Glue, a paintbrush, fine glitter (any color), painter’s tape, and sandpaper

Clean off the soles of your heels (if they’ve been worn), and sand down any uneven parts. Then, put tape around the edges of the sole so as to avoid getting glue and glitter on the actual shoe. Tape off the ball of the sole to avoid actually walking on the glitter.

Tip: Glue and glitter will adhere better to smooth soles, so be careful to choose a pair of heels that isn’t textured.

Pour Mod Podge onto a disposable surface (like a paper plate or shoebox lid), and mix in some glitter with your paintbrush.

Paint the the soles of your heels evenly with the glitter and glue mixture. Make sure to keep the glue thin so it doesn’t dry too chunky.

Pour glitter directly onto the soles immediately before the glue has a chance to start drying. Don’t worry about using too much, excess glitter will come off with a little shake of the shoe.

The glitter should completely cover the glue, like this:

Wait at least a half an hour for the glue to dry. Once you’re sure it has dried, paint another thin coat of the glitter and glue mixture on the sole to seal it.

Let your shoes dry soles up for at least an hour. They may need to sit a little longer if the glue is thick. When they are dry to the touch, and there is no more visible glue, carefully peel the tape off of your shoes.

Rock your sparkly new heels everywhere you go! And get ready for a slew of compliments.

What wardrobe staples do you love to spice up with a little glitter?

P.S. You can find the perfect heels for this project on the GoJane site.

How to: Bleached Tie-Dye Jeans

So your absolute favorite jeans finally wore through the knee and got a mustard stain on them. Devastating, we know. But rather than toss them aside and mourn their loss, give your trusty jeans new life! Tie-dying jeans with bleach is a cinch, and it won’t even cost you a penny. You’ll likely have most of the supplies just sitting around your house. Bleach dying jeans also doesn’t have to be limited to worn out jeans. It’s perfect for jeans with a simple wash that just need a little more character. And the best part about this DIY is that no two pair will look alike! So pull out some grubby clothes you don’t mind getting messy, and get ready to get your craft on.

Our Finished Look.


Love the kicks? Get ’em here!

Here’s what you’ll need: Jeans, rubber or plastic gloves, a plastic bucket, rubber bands, bleach, and water/sink

Make knots in the jeans with the rubber bands. There is really no wrong way to do this, just use as many as you want. The thicker the rubber bands, the heavier the dark spots. If you want sparse spots, use less rubber bands. It’s up to you!

Place rubber bands all the way around your denim ball so it doesn’t open up during its bath.

Rinse your denim ball so it’s thoroughly wet. Then pour 50/50 bleach and water into a bucket.

Gently place your jeans into the bucket. If they aren’t covered, either pour in more water/bleach or rotate every few minutes.

Let jeans sit for 20-60 minutes depending on the thickness of the denim and the desired color. The longer you leave them, the lighter they’ll get.

Tip: Don’t leave jeans soaking for too long or the bleach will start to eat away at the fabric. Just keep an eye on them!

When jeans have lightened up sufficiently, rinse them out and remove the rubber bands.

Note: Jeans will also get lighter as they dry.

Ring out excess water, and let jeans hang to dry. You can make this process shorter by tossing them in the dryer after they’ve sat for a little while.

Pair you new jeans with you favorite kicks, and wear them everywhere!

Have you ever tried a makeover on your favorite jeans?

P.S. You can find the jeans we used for this DIY on the GoJane site.

Celebrity Style: Bond Girl Inspiration

The other day, while chatting with one of our current boy toys and sipping a vodka martini (shaken, not stirred), we started discussing the latest and greatest in cinema. While we admittedly spend a great deal of time drooling with the excitement of seeing Daniel Craig on the big screen in Skyfall this weekend, we’re also super excited to check out the newest badass Bond Girls. We all know Bond has some serious style, but his leading ladies still manage to look fierce when bombs are exploding and they’re being chased by maniacal doctors. And that takes real style. From the fiercely independent Honey Ryder to the gorgeous Vesper Lynd, we’ve compiled a few of our favorite Bond Girls for some fashion inspiration.

What Bond Girl do you think had the best style?

GoJane’s BFF: Meg of “Bow Ties Are Cool”

If it were physically possible (and legal) to shrink someone down to the size of a baby carrot and carry her around with us all day…this lil’ lady would be our first choice! Meet GoJane’s latest BFF, Meg of “Bow Ties Are Cool.” She’s probably the only blogger we’ve met that had as much quirk as she has style! The crazy little voices she speaks in during her haul videos are more entertaining than a box full of drunk kittens (and drunk kittens are pretty high up there on our list of Saturday night entertainment). We love the way she styled our studded lace-up wedge sneakers with a flirty skirt covered in bow ties. Why bow ties? Because they’re cool, duh!

How to: Tie a Scarf 3 Ways

The temperatures are finally starting to drop, pumpkins are taking over empty lots, and the GoJane writers have been spending all their free time jumping in leaves. What does all of this mean? It’s scarf weather! Whether you prefer chunky knit scarves or lightweight printed scarves, we’re  showing you a few stylish ways to tie our favorite cold weather accessory. Get ready to get knotty!

Here are the three final looks.

Look 1:

Fold your scarf in half and drape it around your neck.

Slide one hand through the folded loop, and grab one of the loose ends.

Pull the end through the folded loop. The other end should still be hanging off your shoulder.

Grab the folded loop and twist it 90 degrees.

Slide your other hand through the loop again, and grab the end that is still hanging loose off your shoulder.

Pull the end through the twisted loop and adjust the knot so everything is even.

Rock the knot with your favorite top!

Look 2:

Drape a scarf around your neck so that each end is hanging loose.

Grab your favorite skinny belt, and buckle it around the scarf at your waist.

Tuck in the end of the belt so that it doesn’t hang.

Look 3:

Drape a scarf around your neck unfolded, and leave one end hanging long. There should be about 16 inches hanging on the shorter end.

Wrap the longer end around your neck twice. Both ends should be about the same length now.

Tie the ends that are hanging together in a regular knot. Adjust so ends are still hanging evenly.

What’s your favorite way to tie a scarf?

Luxe For Less: Kim Kardashian’s Varsity Jacket

Only Kim Kardashian could look like a smoking hot fox in a varsity jacket. Kimmy was spotted at Louise Goldin’s Spring 2013 show, rocking the mess out of a sexy, second-skin pencil skirt, some strappy sandals and a delightful black and white, cropped varsity jacket. Her jock-inspired look was one of her most talked about outfits during NYFW and was definitely our favorite. But hold up gurl! If you’re trying to pin down that cool topper for yourself, you’re gonna have to fork over a crazy $1,000 for Kim’s Simone version. Ouch! But as usual, GoJane has got your back! Our entire outfit rings up to $85! Yeah, you’re welcome!

leather contrast varsity jacket, high waist pencil bow skirt, velvet ankle strap platforms, wraparound leather spike bracelet (worn as a necklace)

Why this look works: It’s a bit nostalgic of a 50’s schoolgirl. Replace the poodle skirt with Kim’s modern body con skirt and kick off the oxford flats for a pair of sky-high heels and you’ve gone from sweet schoolgirl in love with her athlete beau to vivacious starlet in lust with her musician lover.

Inspiration Gallery: Polka Dots

Polka dots are the ultimate girly trend. Every lovely lady from Marilyn Monroe to Katy Perry has been spotted (get it?) frequently rocking the classic print. GoJane has been getting in loads of polka dots recently, so naturally, we thought it was time for a little styling inspiration. We compiled a few of our favorite looks from super-stylish bloggers to get you your fashion fix for the day. But be careful not to stare too long, you may start seeing spots.

How do you style this spotty trend?

Follow Miss Nikki for some great fashion, and stay for the hair and makeup artistry. She’s a Jack Jill Jane of all trades, and we love every stylish bit of her.

Behind the Scenes + Sneak Peek: Leopard, Leather, and Hats

Even though temperatures are still pretty hot here, we’re getting super excited about fall fashion. This week, we got in tons of chilly weather accessories including hats, legwarmers, and scarves. We’re also loving all the (vegan) leather goods we’ve been getting in lately. Leather is perfect for any season, but we are especially excited about moto jackets for fall. And just to perfectly top off our collection of new goods this week, we got a bunch of gorgeous leopard pieces. And kitty ear hair clips. They’re seriously almost too cute for words.

It seems like the internet is littered with personal style blogs and it would take a lifetime to get through them all to decide on your faves.

We’ve hand selected the cream of the crop and we’re bringing these blogging babes to you dressed in some of GoJane’s hottest items. We’re calling these stylish GoJane loving’ ladies our BFFs…Blogger Friends Forever! Que cute, huh?

Meet Iria! She’s a hip little sweetie from Spain who just recently featured a pair of our microstud buckle booties on her blog My Blueberry Nights. I know it’s hard to focus on the fashion when there is an ADORABLE puppy in the picture, but do your best.

How to: Wear White After Labor Day

Over 100 years ago, it was decided by some wealthy fashionistas that white should not be worn after Labor Day. The trend, which was vaguely practical, then trickled down to fashion magazines. (We’ll spare you the historical details, but you can read more here if you’re interested.) To this day, many people let out a little groan when Labor Day rolls around, and begrudgingly put away their white summer clothes. At GoJane, we’re all about breaking traditional fashion rules, and wearing whatever prints or colors we think work for each season. And we just so happen to think white works year round. After all, Coco Chanel rocked white whenever she wanted.

Just to get you in the ‘wear white all year’ mindset, we’ve put together a few affordable outfits that feature white without screaming ‘summer vacation!’

four pocket distressed denim shorts, studded leather sweater, single buckle boots

asymmetrical peplum mini skirt, caged back tank, houndstooth cap toe platforms, layered pearl necklace set, quilted metal hinge bracelet, leather reptile wallet

high-waist skinny jeans, floral printed chambray shirt, flyaway cardigan, leather braid belt, rhinestone trim watch, leather buckle strap satchel
 

How do you wear white after Labor Day?

Name This Outfit & Win This Dress!

Update 9/10/12: Congratulations Natacia! Her title…

“Black Widow”

was chosen as this week’s best title. Thanks to everyone who participated. There were a ton of responses. You ladies must have really liked the dress! We’ll see you this Friday for the next giveaway!

What do we mean by name it? Well every week we add three new outfits to our Shop By Outfits page. After some quick brainstorming, we writers decide on a phrase that best represents each outfit. We know we’ve got a winner when a suggestion is met with high-fives and self-proclaimed outbursts of self praise. You too can experience the high of being an “Outfit naming SOB!”

Tips for naming the outfit:

  • keep it short (a few words)
  • the clever-er the better-er
  • song titles/lyrics are cool (if relevant to the outfit)
  • the quirkier the more attractive
  • making us laugh is always appreciated
  • get inspired by visiting our Shop By Outfits page

Comment below with your titles. Comment as many times as you’d like, with as many titles as you’d like. Or include a list of all your titles in one comment. We don’t care how you do it, just as long as it gets done. Good luck!

Note: A winner will be chosen on Monday, September 10, 2012 @ 6pm (PST). You have until then to comment. Please leave a valid email address. We can’t contact you as a winner if your email is ILoveCats@Potato.com (although that would be an awesome email address). After a winner is chosen, s/he will have until Friday, September 14, 2012 to claim their prize. **International winners will receive store credit in the amount of the prize. **Please be advised that we do not ship to all  countries. If a winner is chosen from said country we can only offer them a shout out on our blog. Sorry, but no prize or store credit will be awarded. Click here to see if you qualify for a prize/store credit…

GoJane Lookbook: August 2012

Style Crush: Rachel Bilson

Rachel Bilson has been on our style radar since she showed up on The O.C. back  in 2003, and we’ve loved watching her wardrobe grow and evolve over the last decade. In fact, if we could raid her entire closet, we totally would. Bilson’s style is a little girly, a little edgy, sometimes boyish, and always on trend. Plus, she tops every outfit off with a gorgeous head of hair and a perfect smokey eye. Really, what’s not to love? In case you haven’t been obsessing following Bilson’s outfit choices as closely as we have, we’ve compiled a few of our favorite looks for a little fashion-forward inspiration. And, of course, we couldn’t resist putting together our own version of a look inspired by the SoCal native.



Our version:

scalloped lace tulle dress, leather jacket, lace-up suede booties

What do you think of Rachel Bilson’s style? What celebrities have you been style crushing on lately?

Update 8/20/2012: Congrats Alexa! Her title…

“Knock Out”

…was chosen as this week’s winner. We like the fact that she didn’t the state the obvious, but totally captured the theme of the outfit. I mean, doesn’t the mode look like a little scrapper in this outfit. She looks like she’s about to whip her hair into a tight bun and take care of some street style business.
