Trend of the Week: Bandage Skirts

This week we are loving these body-con bandage skirts in black. Love you butt and legs? Want to show them off? These skirts are the perfect way. The slim silhouette works best on straighter figures, but pairing these skirts with lose fitting tops makes them more forgiving for curvier bodies. Pair these skirts with killer heels for a perkier bottom.

What are you wearing tonight?

Friday's new feature is "What are you wearing tonight?" Here, we will address the question that every girl asks her friends, every weekend. Today we have picked this brand new silk dress by Haven, $102. This photo doesn't do the colors justice. It's deep chocolate brown with punches of deep coral and bright pops of white. The cut is universally flattering and it has a thin racerback for added sex appeal. Perfect to wear to work with a cardigan and ballet flats; even better to wear to happy hour with nothing but a pair of flip flops and a big silver cuff!

Don't forget to stop by the store this weekend to receive 20% off your entire purchase!

Trend of the Week: Bib Necklaces

Here at Jupe, we are currently loving bib necklaces. We aren't picky, but here are two of our favorites.

I love this star burst necklace ($18). It also comes in silver and it's definitely a piece that will take last summer's dress and make it new again. This red seed bead necklace ($17) seems so summery and casual to me. It also comes in turquoise or green. It would be a great punch of color to complement this season's neutrals. Just watch out for tanlines with these necklaces!

What to Wear by Erin: Wedding Season

So you're not a bridesmaid…What the heck do you wear now?
Here are some Do’s and Don’ts on what to wear when invited to a wedding.
  • Don't wear white because it competes with the bride. It’s her day to shine; you can surely find another color to wear.
  • Don’t worry about wearing the same colors as the bridesmaids or mothers.
  • Don’t wear something overly sexy, such as club wear or anything see through. Also, try and stay clear of minis and too much cleavage.
  • Do pay close attention to the style of invitation, if the invitation does not say the formality of the event you can usually tell how formal to dress by the style of the invitation and by the location listed. A simple floral sun dress in a bright color may be appropriate for a day time outdoor wedding or a little black dress is appropriate for any event after 6 p.m.

Versatility is key...

There is nothing that I love more than a versatile piece of clothing. This skirt is one of those pieces. It has an elastic waist, stained glass print, and full cut.

by Hazel, $80

It can be dressed up or dressed down by changing the top and adding a few accessories. To dress it up I added a chiffon ruffle top by Plastic Island, $124, and a brown belt. This outfit is perfect for a summer date or a garden wedding. Throw on a grey cardigan and this outfit could even take you to work!

To dress it down, try pairing it with a v-neck tee or a simple tank. I chose this grey burnout tee by Alternative Apparel, $24, and added a owl pendant necklace, $18.75. Perfect for a day of Saturday shopping in the Strip.Try these shoes to complete each look. The royal blue, open toe pumps by Seychelles will add a punch of color to the formal outfit for only $19. Fringed sandals by Dolce Vita, $71, will add a bit of fun and funk to the casual outfit.
