Hi everyone Happy Tuesday,and Happy TUESDAYSHOESDAY, so if you're reading this you probably already know about the weekly tuesdayshoesday deals we have and I thought what better idea than to talk about SHOES for this blog, specifically the Strut on Them Slouchy Thigh High Boots, because they are essentials in literally every woman's closet. Doesn't matter your style, they are so many ways to style these that there really isnt a reason to not have these... so without further a due, lets get into it...

Now if you don't like the Kardashians, then join the band wagon, but one thing I can say about them is they're stylist really comes through, you can always find inspiration from their style. I am going to feature two different ways and options of how to style these bad boys.. now the first option (below) is how to style olive thigh high boots and this is an easy and comfortable way to style these while looking completely put together. Just add your favorite jeans and your basic tee. Now the utility jacket goes perfect with these boots and scream FALL... would you wear this?

The next look is also VERY comfortable and as I like to think of it as a Yeezy/street style inspired look. Just by looking at it you can feel how comfortable it must be. All you would have to do is wear an oversized crewneck sweater or oversized shirt. I would honestly even recommend to go to walmart in the men's section and find a crewneck sweater there for under $10. How do you feel about this look, do you think its street style cute, or trying to make it happen lazy?

Here's some more inspo for you and remember there are so many ways to style these. Also if you want any of the thigh high boots, feel free to use the code TUESDAYSHOESDAY to get them for 25% OFF. I hope you enjoyed this post or if you got any inspiration. As always thank you for reading and don't forget to stay stylish - The Gia Monae Team

If you love the white ankle bootie look but aren't sure you can rock this, then here is some eye candy to get you excited, and I'm sure you're going to want the bootie right after you read this post.....

So the first GET THE LOOK, is something a bit daring as some would say because its an ALL WHITE outfit, but I mean it's not like youre going to be rolling in dirt right?.. This is a perfect example of Monochromatic and the perfect shoe for this look to come together.. would you wear this look?

I mean who doesn't love boots that look amazing with any pair of jeans, If you haven't noticed before the Hadid sisters, love rocking their white boots and they have worn them multiple ways, I mean who am I kidding, I'm buying a pair as soon as I'm done with this post ;) just look at all that potential girlfriend.....

Hi, So for this week's blog I  held a poll on our Instagram asking whether you wanted to see white boots styled or joggers styled.  Looks like 32% wanted to see white boot styles and 68% voted for Joggers so today I will be talking about joggers and maybe next week we can cover the white boot trend. So as you all can figure and its completely obvious joggers/sweats are soo comfy and as we know looking cute isn't always comfortable but how about if we told you that looking and feeling comfortable and put together is possible. See it for yourself here with a few jogger inspiration....

Now that we are on the same page and feeling the urge to go grab some joggers right now here is a few ideas on how to style joggers. The first look I want to talk about is this monochromatic look, sure its hard to find colors that match exactly but monochromatic color palettes are not meant to be all the exact same shade, you see they are actually suppose to be variations and different shades of the color. Here Kim is rocking this bold but extremely eye pleasing outfit. And we have just the right items to have you rocking this look. The outfits don't always have to be exactly the same that's why they are called inspiration but if you want a sleeveless top you can always crop the sleeves off, What do you ladies think, would you rock this amazing look?...

kim-monochromatic.png

Now that's a creative way to dress up these joggers, and I am loving the color palette, the joggers pictured are a maroon and the top is a burgundy, however this work on the eyes. Now let's talk about a more casual approach to the joggers, below are olive joggers paired with red sunnies for a very complimentary look. Pair with your favorite converse or vans for an everyday look.

It's always fun to rock joggers that aren't always a typical gray color, experimenting with different shades can really kick up the outfit. The Jhene Lace Up Lounge Jogger comes in 4 different colors so you can really play around with different outfits.

I hope you guys ehoyed this how to jogger looks and inspiration, Don't forget to check back every week for a new post and some more inspiration. As always you can snap us or DM us any styles you would like to see featured here and thank you for readig. Stay stylish! - GIA MONAE TEAM

Welcome back girl, today we are talking about fall accessories, right now we are loving corduroy jackets, backpack bags and paper boy hats. Here is some inspiration for what we are going to be talking about this week, so let's get right into it...

corduroy.png

if you couldn't tell we are getting a little bit of a 70's/ Vintage vibe from all these new items, but of course if you're not into that you can always add your own touch to this. So I'm totally obsessing over this look, all black (who doesn't love those outfits?) with a pop of color with that brown corduroy hat. So paper boy hats have been around for a while, a lot of celebrities wear these on the go or when they are having a bad hair day, but I'm here to tell you that you don't have to be having a bad hair day to rock one of these hats These caps will kick your style up a notch and you'll find thousands of outfits to pair them with.

I'm totally obsessed how these both outfits used the cap as a pop of color, and it works so good because its perfect for the fall color palette. Also wanted to mention that these backpacks bags are going to be everything for you this season, especially when you are on the go you can toss all your things and even your lunch in here and walk out with style. I actually currently use one and i love it!

Here is some fashion inspiration using a black paper boy hat, so would you wear this?

get-the-look-hat.png

OK.. NOW let's talk about this beautiful corduroy jacket we have (it's selling fast! and we just restocked) We fell in love with this jacket because you can style it up in so many different ways and it ALWAYS looks good, It's a light material and easy to move in. Style it up with a simple layered necklace like the Belief Layered Necklace. Here is some fashion inspiration using these two..

Let us know how we are doing and what you love seeing here on the blog, snap us inspiration photos or any photos of yourself if you've tried any of these styles.

It's finally October and what it seems like here in California, the weather is starting to feel more like actual fall, whether your from a colder city or warmer, you can all benefit from the Camo trend.  Today we are going to be talking all about CAMO, CAMOFLAUGE or ARMY PRINT, whatever you like to call this timeless print. This never goes out of style and there's hundreds of way to style around it. We just got in our "Camo Joggers" and I got a little inspo here that might make you wanna rock this trend all season long..

camo.png

Alright now that I got you asking for more, let's talk about camo joggers, you might be seeing them on instagram lately and that's because these are one of the hottest trend of the season for fall and winter. Whether you love or hate Kim Kardashian West, one thing we can admit is that her outfits are worth looking at, whether its her stylist or herself doing the style you can't help but gain some inspiration from it. Here she was seen wearing joggers with a basic tank and some stilettos. Along with other celebrites taking the more simple approach to styling this outfit that will make the camoflauge pants the statement piece. Here is how you can get the look at GIA...

get-the-look-honey.png

here's Kim's take on the camo pants wearing it with a simple white tank and 90's looking shades, it even seems she cut the pants for the bermuda look that was in the first picture ......

OK now lets talk CAMO JACKETS.. I love camo jackets and I think this is definately a wardrobe staple along with a moto leather jacket. They really do dress up or down an outfit they are a MUST HAVE, and here is some inspiration you can take with camo jackets and how to rock them!

Here's a way to turn up that camo jacket, just like riri taught us..

Hey Lovesl! Glad to see your back for another fashion and inspo post. Sooo we just got in this NEW Faux Fur Coat and let me tell you guys. I am in love with it! Sure, you may think its "boujee" but let's face it from time to time it doesn't hurt to feel that way. However I like to look at this piece as a VERY versatile piece that can dressed up or down and not necessarily "boujee"  at all.So let's get started, I'm excited to show you the different ways you can style this piece!

 Now if you love SEX AND THE CITY like me then you know this is a Carrie Bradshaw coat for sure! Here's some fashion inspo from the icon.

vintage-fur-coats-for-ladies-21.jpg

It isn't your typical thought to pair these two patterns together, but its easy on the eyes and somehow gives me major city girl vibes, pair this coat with a easy flowy floral dress  (which im sure you have in your closet already) and our On the Daily Taupe Heels for the perfect staple shoe that will just flow into this outfit so perfectly. Add your favorite nude lipstick and a our good as gold purse and youare set girlfriend, looking like you just came out of the SATC episode!

Now that I've covered a new take on the dressy outfit, lets talk about the less casual looks, so I know it SOUNDS kinda crazy to pair this "luxurious" looking coat with sneakers but wait till you see it together and you might change your mind about this! I see a lot of celebrities rocking their coats casually so lets see what I came up with...

 
sneakers-x-faux-fur.png
 

Of course, we ALL don't live our lives like KANYE but hey its called inspiration for a reason right? This street style is perfect for a chill day running errands or hanging in the city with friends especially if you live in cold cities. Not to mention this outfit is incredibly comfortable who doesn't love wearing sneakers?

Hope you guys enjoy this post and got some more ideas of how to style this coat this winter. See you next week for another blog post!Stay Stylish- Jeanette

Hello again! Today we are talking about Off Shoulder Jackets, because we just got in this Quinn off the Shoulder Jacket If you're like me then you wear leather jackets like crazy (faux leather) and you know that they completely make an outfit, even the simplest outfit will become instantly better with a leather jacket.

This is a  NEW take on the leather jacket because its off shoulder and its sexy especially while transitioning to fall and winter.  I took inspiration from this Cosmopolitan issue where Hilary Duff is seen wearing this off shoulder jacket with some denim shorts, creating a contrast that is easy on the eyes!

Wear this on cloudy days to school or work, you can even wear this out to a bar on cold nights with some pumps. Let alone this color is absolutely flattering to any skin and hair color. You will have so much fun playing with fall lip colors, imagine a dark ruby red lip with this... ughh yeah you need it... trust me!

-Our Fall Vibes Sweater is perfect for this especially because it adds little details that make it unique, offering side slits and that V cut just to add a touch of feminine and sexy.
