  • - I am about to change your life, yes.
  • I am sharing five awesome style hacks today
  • that are a game changer for sure.
  • (mellow techno music)
  • Hi ladies, it's Erin, and welcome back to my channel.
  • Today I wanna share five life-changing style hacks.
  • These are style tips that I use all the time, daily,
  • and I feel like once you understand
  • how to do each of these, it just makes your day-to-day
  • life and existence so much easier.
  • Hence, the life-changing part.
  • Maybe that's a little dramatic,
  • but they really do change your life, for real, not kidding.
  • Let's get started.
  • (upbeat techno music)
  • The first style hack that I wanna talk to you about
  • is cuffing your sleeves and the art of the cuff.
  • So there's one fail-safe, go-to cuffing formula
  • that I use, that I love, that I think is so good looking
  • and always looks neat and polished.
  • I'm gonna explain to you how to do it.
  • I don't have a name for it,
  • I'm just gonna call it The Best Cuff, okay?
  • So the first thing you do is you roll up your sleeve,
  • and you do one long cuff, like six inches.
  • And then go to the bottom of the shirt,
  • or the bottom of the cuff, and you cuff again.
  • This time your cuff is half the size,
  • it's about two and a half inches.
  • And you have a little bit of extra shirt
  • peeping out of the top.
  • With that little bit of extra shirt,
  • you then fold it down over the second cuff.
  • So it sounds complicated, but I promise you it's not.
  • And this is a game changer, so you're like,
  • I have a blouse, I have a button-down,
  • I have this white shirt that I wanna cuff
  • but I'm not sure how to do it.
  • That is how you cuff your sleeve.
  • It oh looks good every single time.
  • Now, if the shirt is too tight in the arm,
  • it doesn't enable you to cuff,
  • then you probably can't do the cuff.
  • But most shirts, if they fit you the right way,
  • are not gonna be that tight in the arm,
  • and will enable you to do this cuff.
  • Which again, I feel like it's a fail-safe.
  • It's my go-to, it's what I do every time
  • when I'm wearing a button-down shirt
  • or a blouse that I wanna cuff.
  • And you guys will find, I think, it's a go-to as well.
  • So this one's a game changer, life-changer.
  • It may seem a little complicated in the beginning,
  • but once you get it down, it's really simple.
  • (upbeat techno music)
  • Okay, the second life-changing style hack is
  • the half-tuck and the Half-Tuck I did a whole video on,
  • so if you want even more half tuck in your life
  • I will put a link to that video below.
  • But the half-tuck is basically just tucking in
  • a little bit of your shirt, but not the whole shirt.
  • What I traditionally do is I take a small section
  • of the shirt in the front and then I tuck it into
  • the front of my pants and I like this half-tuck because you
  • have that coverage from the shirt all the way around,
  • except for where you did the half-tuck.
  • The other reason I love the half-tuck is
  • because it has an effortlessness about it.
  • It looks like you're stylish, you're pulled-together,
  • but you're not, like, too buttoned-up.
  • There's a whole thing around the half-tuck.
  • If you're having trouble with the half-tuck,
  • I've seen this time and time again,
  • so if you're having trouble it is most likely
  • because you have a little bit of extra in the tummy area.
  • That might be why.
  • And what I would suggest doing if that's the case
  • is to wear a higher rise pant or jean
  • and then the stomach area is all
  • (vocal sucking)
  • sucked in and you can do your half-tuck a little higher
  • and there's no reason why you can't do that
  • and so with a button-down when you have two flaps
  • your half-tuck is a little tricker than, let's say,
  • like a t-shirt and what I traditionally do in that situation
  • is I will really just tuck in one of the sides a little bit.
  • So I'll pick the side, I'll tuck it in
  • in the front, and then leave the rest out.
  • And you can even take the two sides and tuck the two sides
  • in the front in the middle if you like that look
  • to highlight the waist and then leave the rest out.
  • Those are the two ways that I would go about it
  • with a button-down shirt.
  • I think with a t-shirt or a blouse it's a lot easier.
  • You just take one hand, you stick a little fabric
  • in the front of your jean or your pant and you're good.
  • But again if you want more on the half-tuck
  • there is a video below so you can watch that.
  • (upbeat techno music)
  • Okay, the next style hack that is life-changing
  • is the art of the jean cuff.
  • So I have talked a lot about, you know,
  • how to wear your skinny jeans with your ankle boots,
  • how to wear your crop jeans with
  • your ankle boots or your shoes.
  • Essentially a jean cuff will enable you
  • to wear any shoe that you want to wear.
  • It gives you power and control.
  • (laughs)
  • Here's one example.
  • You don't want to take your jeans to the tailor.
  • They're too long on you.
  • Cuff 'em, that's it.
  • I do this all the time.
  • So here is an example of a pair of jeans
  • I have by Rag & Bone.
  • I love them so much.
  • I wear them all the time.
  • THey're way too long on me, like six inches
  • too long on me and I just cuff 'em.
  • That's it.
  • And what I will do is often either double cuff 'em,
  • so that they're above the bootie, or I just tuck
  • that whole cuff into the bootie and it looks great.
  • You don't have to worry about that.
  • But if your jeans are a little bit shorter
  • than what the cuff does is it enables you
  • to wear your jeans at a height that will allow
  • you to wear whatever height ankle boot
  • or strappy heal that you want to wear.
  • So if the jeans and the ankle bootie aren't quite lining up,
  • like the jeans over the ankle bootie
  • a little bit but they are not long enough
  • to tuck into the ankle bootie cuff 'em.
  • And you'll know pretty quickly whether you're wearing
  • a pair of jeans that's truly cuffable.
  • Some of them just, they look sloppy cuffed
  • and some of 'em look like really crisp and clean cuffed.
  • It depends on the type of denim
  • and you'll know, again, pretty quickly.
  • So you just try it, play around with it, and see.
  • So with the cuff of the jean you could do
  • a double cuff or you can do one big, long cuff.
  • So I do both.
  • I kind of mix it up and try both
  • and you can try both too now that you know how to do it.
  • So you do that double cuff or you do that long, single cuff.
  • And again, that's gonna enable you to wear whatever shoe
  • you want no matter what length your jeans are.
  • It gives you power and control and, better still, style.
  • (upbeat techno music)
  • Okay the next life-changing style hack
  • is to add a third layer.
  • I have talked about this in other videos.
  • I know that I have.
  • And if you've missed those videos I will put
  • a link to some of my styling tip videos below.
  • But the third layer is a game changer
  • in terms of your overall look.
  • It pulls it all together.
  • It makes it look like you're really, like,
  • an expert at layering and you've got it goin' on
  • and everything looks a little bit more buttoned-up.
  • So let's just say you have
  • a plain t-shirt and a pair of jeans.
  • You throw on that third layer, whether it's a blazer,
  • whether it's a cardigan, whether it's a moto jacket,
  • whether it's a vest or a long duster vest,
  • you instantly elevate your look.
  • You instantly look more stylish.
  • And adding that third layer will really
  • transform the way your outfit looks.
  • Like, more than anything else that third layer will do that.
  • And if you're in a super hot climate and you're like,
  • "But wait, I live in Florida."
  • The third layer can be a really lightweight,
  • white blazer or a white moto jacket or a really thin,
  • white cardigan, or a vest that's super lightweight.
  • You can kind of get creative with a third layer.
  • Third layer's not a must, it's just an option
  • that you have to really pull your whole look together.
  • (upbeat techno music)
  • The next tip I wanna talk about is your belt.
  • A lot of times you put on a belt, whether it's around
  • a dress or a skirt or a pair of jeans or a pair of pants,
  • and there is this excess to the belt hanging over
  • and you're like, "What do I do with that extra belt?"
  • So there's a couple of ways you can go about it.
  • Number one, you could try double-sided tape
  • and you could tape down the excess.
  • The trouble with the double-sided tape is it often will ruin
  • your belts and you don't wanna do that.
  • So what's very stylish and even better
  • and won't ruin your belt is to loop it
  • in a very stylish way and I'm gonna show you.
  • So basically you fasten the belt,
  • then you take the excess and you run
  • the excess up through the back of your belt
  • towards your head, so it's like under and up.
  • Then you put it back down through this loop
  • you just created, because you've created a loop.
  • So you put the top part down back through the loop and pull.
  • That creates a very elegant, very shiek,
  • very stylish loop which is what you do with that extra belt.
  • Another thing to think about is what about with, like,
  • belted trench coats or, like, a dress with a sash waistband.
  • How do you tie those?
  • And this is a bonus tip by the way.
  • It's a bonus tip.
  • I'm throwin' this one in for you.
  • The bonus tip is, for your trench coats
  • and for your dresses with sashes,
  • what you're going to do, and this is how I tie mine
  • pretty much every time, you tie a regular knot,
  • just like, you know, you normally would.
  • I usually cheat it over to one side,
  • whether it's the left or the right, totally up to you.
  • And then instead of making a bow
  • what I do is I just loop one side.
  • You have to be a little strategic about this
  • and trying to make sure that the side you're looping
  • is a longer than the side you're not looping
  • and then that way doesn't look totally uneven,
  • but actually a little uneven is perfect.
  • So that's how I tie all of my sashes
  • for trench coats, for dresses.
  • You could do that in the back of your trench coat too,
  • if you wanna just leave it open.
  • You can use that a bunch.
  • Okay, so those are my five life-changing style hacks.
  • Did I just, like, (vocal explosion) blow your mind there?
  • (laughs)
  • I'm cracking myself up, clearly.
  • So anyway, I hope that was helpful to you guys.
