Rock This Look: Nadia G Takes On Hipster Style

Calling someone a “hipster” seems like more of an insult than a compliment these days. But if we can look past bulky fedoras, black thick-rimmed glasses and the insistence that a Pabst in hand is an accessory, there is some fun to be had with this fashion trend. Check out G’s look from “Hipster Brunch,” and you’ll be rocking plaid, but avoiding lumberjack comments, in no time!

Dress

Plaid can’t be left to only the devices of school uniform designers — or farmers. Rather than decking out head to toe in the trendy print, choose one great piece, like G’s Boy by Band of Outsiders dress in blue plaid. It says “I know what’s cool,” but it doesn’t leave you dealing with sweating in flannel.

Rock This Look: Nadia G.’s PMS Fashion Tips

When it comes to the touchy topic of PMS, we could all do with a little less mood swings and a little more food cravings. But when we’re feeling our worst, and our attitude reflects it, we don’t have to turn to robes and sweatpants to feel better. Put down the chocolate, and pick up these fashion tips for a playful summer look that’s sure to put a smile back on your face.

Outfit

We know the call of the Snuggie is strong at this time, but there are comfy clothes that still show off the benefits of being a woman, instead of just hiding the negatives. G looks absolutely dashing in her Hello Sailor playsuit by Traffic People.  Get yours, and get back to feeling playful — that’s what candy stripes do to you!

Rock This Look: How Nadia G. Stays Stunning With a Hangover

We understand how you may not look your best after a night of partying. But once you’ve had a mean lookin’ breakfast and showered, we suggest going light on the makeup with some neutrals, slapping on a trendy (and comfy) outfit and heading back out there! G shows you how you can go from morning mess to afternoon A-lister with a plaid shirt and the right attitude (or heels, wtv).

Rock This Look: Nadia G.’s Wedding Style

Nadia G. Rock This Look Bridezilla Bites

With all the fuss that comes with weddings, it’s always nice to chill out and wear something that isn’t made of taffeta. But simple doesn’t mean you have to skimp out on looking good — or settle for wearing I’m-painfully-single stained sweats. G shows us how you can take a laid-back dress and make it pop — with color and accessories, of course! The added bonus? The majority of this outfit is vintage, allowing you to splurge on other more-luxurious items (like shews).

Dress & Belt

Finding your soulmate might not be easy, but finding a wicked one-of-a-kind piece in a vintage shop can be! One of the crew’s favorite spots in L.A., Wasteland, has all sorts of goodies like this retro Patterson J. Kincaid blue dress. G accessorizes hers with another vintage item: a simple crystal belt. You don’t need to spend a fortune to look like a million bucks. Seriously, we’ve bought entire outfits for less than $60 (much less than you’ll be forced to spend on your BFF’s wedding). Browse for similar belts here.

Rock This Look: Nadia G.’s Timeless Trendy Style

Nadia G. Rock This Look Trends

When it comes to trends, some things are better decisions than others. Unlike the photos tagged all over Facebook of you “rocking” Crocs, food trends are between you and your plate (or maybe the restaurateur you’re visiting for the third time this week). Wanna look as good as that hyped meal tastes? Then take a look at G’s outfit for a timelessly cool look. Then, put down the thick-rimmed black glasses and back away slowly.

Shirt

Don’t spend your time worrying about what color is in season. Rock ‘em all like G does in this slick and colorful Mark McNairy men’s floral shirt. Yup, masculine pieces can pair with a feminine look! Check out McNairy’s stuff here, and listen to what he’s got to say about fashion — or just do your best impression with a Hawaiian shirt.

Rock This Look: Nadia G. Gets Happy

It’s hard to feel “happy” when you’re looking frumpy and/or chunky. In this week’s Rock This Look, we’ll show you how you can brighten your day (and night) with fun prints, bold colors and a dress so cute, it’ll even put a smile on ‘Grumpy Cat’.

Peplum Dress

The latest in trendy dresses, peplum styles give you the sexiness of a skin tight number with the added cuteness of ruffles around the waist. It comes in a few different variations, but we love the retro one Nads’ is sporting. G’s is a Betsey Johnson design that’s sadly no longer available (bummer), but there are loads popping up all over the place (scores!). Check out these styles and be on your way to a happier, much cuter Saturday night.

Rock This Look: How Nadia G. Would Look Good as a Mom

Nadia G Rock This Look Parenthood

Some seriously bad fashions are associated with being a parent: think mom jeans, Baby Bjorns and wearing whatever you just fed your kids. We might not be parents, but it doesn’t take much more than a night of babysitting to understand the woes of unexpected spitup or kids that have gotten ahold of our makeup (RIP, M.A.C Red lipstick). Let Nadia G. and the color purple inspire you to reclaim your style and become an all-out “momshell.” Get it?

Hair
With kids around, the usual hair concern is that it’s out of tugging reach. And since there’s no time for fancy updo’s, check out these tutorials for getting adorable braids like the ones Nads is rockin’. Bonus: they totally make you look younger (that’s something moms worry about, right?).

Rock This Look: How Nadia G. Decks Out for the Holidays

Rock This LookThis Christmas, Nadia G. is breaking all the fashion rules! She ditches that itchy holiday sweater with skiing snowmen for something a little more form-fitting! From a shiny red catsuit to a festive dress with a bejeweled bunny, the G-Star shows that holiday wear doesn’t have to be boring!

Green Manoush Dress
A little bit Alice in Wonderland and a lot bit glam, this dress has everything you could ask for: jewels, crowns and a bunny — because no dress is complete without a bunny … made of diamonds!

Femme Jolie Bodysuit
You might want to put that cookie down if you plan to rock this vinyl catsuit! Okay, so that’s a little harsh but, really, vinyl isn’t most people’s friend. Rock a catsuit the easy way with this totally flattering version.

Dolce & Gabanna Gold Shoes
These pumps scream superstar. They’re luxe-looking but the heels, compared to the Louboutins that Nadia usually rocks, are down-right doable! Unfortunately, these shoes are so awesome they’re sold out pretty much everywhere, but you can rock the look for less with these babies.

Rings
During holiday season you’ve usually got a tree full of shiny ornaments and lights to compete with, so don’t shy away from rockin’ your own sparkly accessories. A fistful of silver rings capped off by this regal-inspired crystal ring will give that little sapling a run for its money! Here’s a less pricey version.

Rock This Look: Nadia G.’s ’50s Style

Rock This Look

In the ’50s, you had the choice between looking sharp and looking square. Women rocked swing dresses or pencil skirts and acted totally proper (never opting for Uggs over heels). And while we won’t be switching up our leopard print for soft pastels anytime soon, we wouldn’t mind adopting the end-of-day drinking tradition…

Makeup
Re-creating Nadia’s flawless face for a night of back-seat bingo is easy. “Nylon” M.A.C eye shadow for your lids and “Embark” and “Carbon” M.A.C eye shadows for your crease create one out-of-this-world look. Then, “Dolly Mix” M.A.C blush & “Golden” M.A.C bronzer, G’s go-to products, will have all the daddy-os taking a second peek.
