Day to Night Cheetah trend!

Animal prints are all over the place this season, and we know you ladies are on the prowl for the perfect piece. Here’s how we paired this fierce animal print jacket into day and night time looks:

(Style IJ7990, $70)


Stick to light colors; chunky, casual sweaters and your favorite Miss Me boot cut jeans are the best pieces to keep this cheetah print looking day time purrrrfect.


Have some fun and show your wild side! Darker colors and lace are great ways to keep the style fun and playful and evening appropriate for any event.

Just a Material Girl in the Working World

As working women we have a million decisions to make during the day, and sometimes our personal style can get lost in the shuffle. Don’t lose yourself in the hustle and bustle. Instead, take some time out to indulge in your passion for fashion; make power statements and be noticed. You can easily express yourself and individual style while still being work appropriate. Mix together layers of basics and one or two key trend pieces to create that “wow” factor.

An embellished cardigan can spice up a pencil skirt and basic button down blouse. Add a cute nude flat, and you’re good to go; comfort never looked so good!

Have a high-fashion mindset? No problem, it doesn’t have to conflict with a work wardrobe. We love the idea of a silk blouse tucked into high-waisted trousers and an AMAZING jacket and red pumps to set it off.

We recently just received an adorable and trendy skirt and jacket set by Tulle, here’s how we used the pieces together and as separates in totally fashion-forward and appropriate work styles:

Fashion made easy with Monochromatic colors

Dressing in a solid color doesn’t have to be boring or one-dimensional. To the contrary it’s becoming a huge trend on the runway. Add texture and different shades to your look to create depth and interesting style. Here’s how top fashion designers style the trend paired with our Sage picks:

TREND ALERT: Bib Necklaces

Finally, a jewelry inspired post! A great necklace can make an outfit. We are loving the statement that the bib necklace is giving us this season. These layered and chunky beauties can make the blandest outfit stand out -- but don’t go overboard. The key to this trend is to keep the neckline simple and let the “bib” style do the rest.

Keeping an Equal Balance

Keeping an equal balance in most aspects of our lives is extremely important, and it is no different for fashion. So many trends can become overwhelming so the main rule is; don’t over do it! Mixing too many trends in one outfit could be fashion suicide, so here are a few little tips on how to balance out the latest silhouette trends:

What NOT to do: (kidding! We know our Sagettes wouldn’t do this)

*Leather jackets: Something fun and flirty works best with the leather jacket because it’s a great contrast of soft and hard. The print and silk material of the dress doesn’t compete with the dark leather. Add a clutch and some heeled booties and you’re good to go

*Leggings: Keep a balance of fitted and loose when trying out the legging trend. Pair with longer tops that fall below your rear to provide enough coverage so you will feel comfortable. Add a layer with an oversized or chunky sweater to equal out the silhouette (if you opt for a chunky sweater for layering, keep unbuttoned if possible so you don’t get swallowed up by the fabric).

*Oversized tops: Similar rule to the leggings…you will want to keep an equal balance of fitted and loose. Let the flowy tops hang over skinny jeans or leggings, or tuck into a fitted skirt.

*Wide-leg pants: Let the pants be the star of the show and down-play the rest of your outfit. A Fitted top tucked in and layered with a thin cardigan is your best bet. Add a platform heel to lengthen and show off the silhouette.
