How to Style Leopard Print

Leopard is back. Well for some of us, myself included, it never left, but nevertheless it is back. I have flippin loved leopard print since 8th grade. I was obsessed then and I am obsessed now. Ha! Some things never change. After sporting the print for some, what, 20 plus years now, I consider myself a leopard print expert and have taken note of some flattering vs unflattering ways to sport the look over the years. Leopard print is a tough print to wear! It can easily cross over into the tacky side of things if you're not careful. Here are some of my tips for wearing leopard print:

- Don't match leopard with leopard. Leopard print is a diva, she doesn't need a co-star. Opt for matching the print with denim, black, neutral tones, or even red vs pairing it with another leopard print. There is such a thing as too much of a good thing:)

- Wear the print, don't let the print wear you. Leopard prints are best reserved for your most sassiest of days. Leopard is a print that has a presence, it has pizzazz so rockin it on days in which you've got some spunk does wonders!

- Opt for chic versions of the print vs cheap looking versions. Try to select the chicest of leopard prints with a classy look to them vs the cheaper less flattering leopard prints. Leopard print walks the fine line between fab and flop. Leopard prints with natural base tones look great and match with tons of other pieces!

Here are some of other ways I have styled leopard print in the past for some inspooooo:

Here are some awesome leopard pieces I found for under $50 :)

How To Make Money On Poshmark

For about 2 years now, I have been selling items on Poshmark, and at this point I have made thousands of dollars utilizing the fashion app doing what I love, styling clothes! I originally downloaded the app thinking 'what the heck, I can sell a few things I don't wear anymore and see what happens'. The first thing I uploaded for sale was a floral print kimono and it sold in 24 hours. I was hooked. I still am. The app offers users the ability to buy and sell clothing, jewelry, shoes, and beauty products. Users can buy from other users as well as sell their own new or preloved items. Personally, I started out selling items from my own closet that were literally collecting dust and then progressively moved on to buying to resell. Utilizing the fashion app has allowed me to become a Fashion Buyer, Stylist, and Boutique Owner! Do you currently have any items in your closet you haven't so much as touched in years? If you have yet to download the app, give it a try! You can also use my coupon code CLOSETOFJULES for $5 off of your first purchase!

Here are a few tid bids on how I have made money on Poshmark:

1) Post clear, well lit, product photos. Keep in mind when posting an item for sale, the item should be something that you yourself would stop scrolling for. When I post new products for sale, I try to keep this in mind! I utilize natural sunlight for most of my photos and then proceed to edit them on my phone with the 'exposure' setting to brighten them up if need be.

2) Post new items for sale frequently. I have had the most success in making sales on weeks I post more items for sale. Mathematically, this makes perfect sense. The more you have available, the more you will sell. Poshmark suggests 10+ listings to increase sales!

3) Include informative product descriptions. The more information you are able to give buyers about your items, the better. Giving measurements, item condition details, and even a styling/pairing suggestion to items, can help sway buyers to purchase. Items with no information leave potential customers with questions about the item that can deter them from buying.

4) Share fellow Poshers items. Poshmark is a social fashion app. Keep in mind the 'social' aspect in sharing other Poshers items. This is an important thing to do for many reasons: 1) users will, in return share your items too. 2) You never know when someone will buy, including someone you share items for. 3) sharing is caring, the app is a social based platform, the more you share, the more interactive you are as a user, it's only good for your analytics to share.

Happy Poshing! If you have any questions feel free to reach out to me on Instagram @JulesNichols_

Over The Moon For Over The Knee Boots

Okay over the knee boots, aka OTK boots, I see you. I dig ya. OTK boots have continued to stay on trend for quite a few seasons now and I am okay with this. Inspired by the original 1960's style boot, over the knee boots are a bit higher than the gogo boots of that era, revamping and modernizing the look for today. I'm all in. This recycled blast from the past look is the shizzz for a few different reasons:

1) They make your legs look longer. Yasss. It's true. Take it from me, Stubs McGee, over the knee boots flatter the figure by making your legs appear longer. 

2) They are versatile. Pull them up over some skinny jeans or with a mini dress and they look amazing either way. Talk about stretching out a wardrobe. Keep some of those summer dresses rolling by wearing tights with the over the knee boots for warmth and your golden!

3) They are timeless. OTK boots are proving to be a style staple Fall and Winter season after season. They make a great addition to your wardrobe you are able to get a great ROI on each year!

Here are some legit over the knee boots worth a peek:

That's A Wrap

That's a wrap! I love a good pun, like I love a good wrap dress. Wrap dresses fuse simplicity with beautiful detailing. They also dress up or down very well. With a good wrap dress, you can flow from day to night well by just changing what you pair with it. Versatility at its finest. I am a fan.

I am selling this exact dress on my Poshmark closet h e r e. And here are some similar pieces to snag my look for yourself!

Outfit Of The Day: Leopard & Pleats

October is here! To say I love Fall would be an understatement. I flippin love Fall and everything that comes with it. The weather, the clothes, the food, the holidays...ugh I could go on, but I won't. I'll spare you and get right to my outfit of the day. Here I styled my faux leather jacket via JUST FAB with a leopard print sweater via Saks Fifth Avenue with a pleated maxi skirt (that I am obsessed with).

Outfit Of The Day: Heavily Meditated

Today, in an effort to find some much needed peace of mind, my friend Kim and I, took to a hike. It was beautiful. Couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day or more pleasant company. 

For the hike I rocked a newly released tee via the company I work for, LIFEAID Bev Co that reads 'Heavily Meditated'. I love to meditate so it's only fitting. I paired the top with my favorite hat and favorite pair of lululemon yoga pants.
