12 Must-Have Wardrobe Staples


Even if you’re not able to own each one of these items by the time you’re 30, we doubt you can argue with the necessity in having a versatile little black dress and a perfectly fit blazer. The idea of having timeless wardrobe staples is that you can better mix and match your wardrobe, leaving you without those “I have nothing to wear!” moments we’ve all experienced. Of course, this list will differ slightly based on everyone so tailor it to yourself. If you don’t love black, make your classic trousers in a bold blue or if you don’t feel comfortable in a pencil skirt, go for a pleated, skater skirt style.

Buy vs. Make: New Years Eve Edition


New Year’s Eve is one of the most fun fashion nights of the whole year, in my opinion. Sparkly sequins, red lips, metallic stilettos are all key pieces that make me think of a fun way to ring in the new year. If you haven’t quite decided on an outfit to wear on December 31st, here is some high fashion inspiration that you can make on a much more modest budget with your creative craftiness. Don’t worry, we know you aren’t buying four thousand dollar dress and neither are we, but sometimes it’s fun to get inspired by fashion and see what we can come up with ourselves.

Fall Coat Trends


While we are still enjoying the fall temperatures here in Colorado, we know that serious cold weather is just around the corner and now is the time to sewing for it. Back in February, fashion designers sent coats down their runways that set the trends for our approaching weather and we’ve rounded up our favorites along with patterns to make them your own. If you’re looking to keep things classic, opt for minimalist coats with interest, grown-up toggles and pea coats with a modern shape. To make a statement, patchwork faux fur for optimal warmth and style, add shearling to points of interest on your topper or forgo fitted for an oversized silhouette. Read the article to see the six coat trends you should have on your fall sewing list.

DIY Maternity Style


In just a few months I’ll be turning the big 3-0 and while I’m still busy planning my upcoming wedding, many of my friends are planning their baby nurseries. The phrase “maternity style” may make most fashionistas shudder but in recent years I think with the help of celebrities, we’ve seen that not all style has to be thrown out the window while expecting. I think it’s important to look your best and of course yourself, even while you’re carrying a little one. Here are some of our favorite sewing, fashion and DIY bloggers showing just how stylish one can be during those challenging yet rewarding nine months.

Best Selling Wrap Dress Sewing Patterns


Diane Von Furstenburg has said of her iconic wrap dress, “The wrap dress made women feel what they wanted to feel like…free and sexy… It also fitted in with the sexual revolution: A woman who chose to could be out of it in less than a minute!” In 1974 she created the iconic wrap dress, which has stood the test of time and continues to be her best selling style. It flatters nearly every figure and can be made in a variety of styles and fabrics, worn to nearly any occasion. We’ve gathered six of BurdaStyle’s best selling wrap dresses for your shopping pleasure.

We’re getting married next summer on June 17th and I’m about to embark on the exciting journey of picking out my wedding dress. I never had a definite idea of exactly what I wanted to wear on my big day but over the past year, thanks to Instagram and Pinterest, I have some great inspiration.
