A neutral ensemble has long been a favorite amongst fashion sophisticates. Winter whites, beiges, and cream hues compliment each other and simultaneously put the spotlight on the wearer. The luxurious result is an understated, yet powerful statement look.  Putting together a chic neutral look can be incredibly easy to do. The trick is to include a variety of textures - like faux fur, mohair, or cable knits - to keep the...

Bag | Skirt | Dress | Glasses Synonymous with American fashion, denim is a recession-proof style staple that, until now, has in large part consisted of blue jeans. Today, we are seeing denim in everything from drawstring backpacks to boho dresses, and even in sunglasses. Fashion "It Girl" Alexa Chung's new collection for Adriano Goldschmied spotlights quite a bit of the classic fabric, and spring runway shows were full of...

In order to stay on trend (and sane, for that matter) with the ever-changing fashion trends, it is critical to understand where to splurge and where to save, lest you empty your bank account each and every season with every new item you can get your hands on. Even if money is no object to you, being selective on what you buy is the key differentiator between the truly stylish set and the fashion victim. Hoarding stuff...

It feels like just yesterday we were lusting over the grandeur that is Fashion Week, and the dazzling garments that graced the runways of New York, London, Paris, and Milan. Now there's snow on the ground and holiday shopping has taken top priority for many of us. With spring fashion, we will see some current trends ongoing, as well as some exciting new takes on old ones. That in itself seems to be a big trend, maybe as a...

We all know that catching some z's is the secret to looking fabulous, particularly to keep away those pesky crows feet and even that stubborn extra five pounds that may or may not have been a result of a very festive holiday season. So if the answer is that simple - sleep more and look better - then why is it so incredibly hard to actually do it? As a society, we have all become busier than ever due to both an increase in...

If you follow me on Instagram (@zahra_sandberg), you know that I recently entered an Instagram contest and was chosen to walk in the Anthropologie fashion show held at Woodfield Mall. Even though it may seem like modeling would come naturally to me, seeing as how I take blog pictures constantly, I find modeling extremely difficult and anxiety-inducing. You might notice that I am looking down in the picture - I did that...

Here's is a clip of a Fall Coat Fashions segment I did this past weekend with NBC Chicago. I had so much fun styling these looks because fall is definitely my favorite fashion season. The models were so easy and fun to work with - I even got a really great shape tip from our conversations! If you go to bed wearing your workout gear, you are more likely to get up and work out. I think of how hard it is to get out of my...

A classic fall staple, the trench coat, is something I believe every girl needs in her wardrobe. I wear mine pretty much year round, adding and subtracting layers to accommodate for the weather. Below I am pictured in my favorite trench, paired with black suede pumps and boyfriend jeans for a comfortable and chic weekend look. My trench by Burberry was definitely an investment piece for me, but it has earned its value...

I've always had an affinity for the jumpsuit. The one piece outfit makes getting dressed a no-brainer, sort of like throwing on a dress. This season jumpsuits are hotter than ever with styles available in every color, including some fully embellished with sequins. The key is to find a fit that flatters your body. My preference is always one that is slightly loose with a nipped in waist. Wear it casual with a denim jacket...

The holidays are just around the corner, and pretty soon there will be soirees to attend and formal attire to don. Whether it's an office party, cocktail party with friends, or a fun family affair, why not try amping up your style with something a little bold? Try swapping your usual LBD for a bright or metallic hue. And if you are going for navy or black, try a dress with a little sheer panelling detail. Below are a few...
