Over the weekend Khloe Kardashian hit the town in LA and everyone wondering how they can recreate her look. The reality star posted a photo on her Instagram stating that she has a “slight fedora obsession.” Fedoras never go out of style, however it seems like everyone has gotten their hands on one ever since Beyoncé dropped her “Formation” video February 6, 2016. She was seen leaving Casa Vega in LA wearing a beige fedora hat, nude bodysuit, distressed jeans, and a pair of $375 Jennifer Le Razor Heels. The silver pumps are handmade with Austrian crystals, with silver spikes. Now if you can afford these fabulous shoes then go ahead and purchase them when they restock. However, if you are a college student and is balling on a budget, no worries because you can still get this look. Below is some similar item from different stores for an affordable price. You can purchase them items from Fashion Nova, LolaShoetique and Forever 21. Enjoy Ladies!

Plus Size Jean Guide

I am hoping that some of our Kontrol Girl readers are just like me, “Cute in the face, but chubby in the waist with thick thighs that save lives.” Let me hear it for all my plus size cuties one time (all the plus size ladies SCREAM)!

One thing though that can be stressful for any woman and plus-size ladies (especially due to limited selection) is finding the perfect pair of jeans. For years now I have kinda given up the fight to try and  find the perfect pair of jeans. Instead I opted for the ever-present legging and jegging phenomena that has overtaken fashion for at least the last 5 years.

Finally, my legs have decided to break up with tight-fitting pants…well not completely, but for the most part they are ready for flares and wide-legged pants. So I have taken the time to do a little research and give you my list of plus-size and curvy-girl friendly jeans brands.

Poetic Justice Jeans –  These are jeans made for the fashionable lady who is looking for quality and great fit.

PZI Jeans– They only go up to a size 18 unfortunately, but they are perfect for curvy girls who experience the dreaded gapping at the waist.

Oooo Neon…. how we have a LOVE/ HATE relationship. The loud and extremely bright trend can sometimes cause a wave of confusion and a tad bit of blindness if done incorrect. On the bright side of things neon colors are fun and make any boring snob into the life of the party. We wouldn’t suggest you get any examples on how to put together a polished neon ensemble from Nicki Minaj, but instead fashion sites like Kontrol Magazine, Vogue and Elle who always have key points on how to style this over the top trend. Here is a beginners, intermediate, and expert way to wear Neon.

Beginners – Pair neon colors with solids pants, skirts, shirts, and shoes. If you’re a Goth girl or mostly shy to advance in any color, try only adding accessories with neon colors.

Intermediate– Colors are probably not as hard for you to assemble together. Try having at least two different neon colors. Personally neon colors like yellow and blue match pretty nice together. If you’re feeling daring add a purse with a neon color that can blend the other two well: Orange or Green would fit well with the yellow or blue.

Expert– Honey I’m sure you know what you’re doing, but if not try every color neon girl. Just make sure to coordinate. 🙂

Places to find Neon right now:
1. H&M
2. Forever 21
3. Zara
4. Topshop.com
5. Nastygal.com
6. Asos.com
7. Macys
8. Target

To fit in with the electric feeling you get when wearing the burst of colors trend. Here is one of my favorite songs to match the fun side of neon.
