Fashion trends have made marks on the fashion world, and just when we think there can’t be any other ideas, out comes a fresh new one. I never imagined menswear ever crossing over and becoming a trend for women, but it is something have been seeing lately. Designers have been inspired by menswear, and I must say, a fashionista can pull anything off.
The suit look has made crossover as women’s business wear, and was seen on the runway presented by Tommy Hilfiger in 2011. This may be a look that made a debut in 2011, but fashionistas in the office LOVE this look.
The idea for blazers originally came from the tuxedo, as well!
And for a more relaxed look, the boyfriend pant trend has climbed its way up the fashionable ladder, and celebs are all over it.
From hoola-hoop bags, mink heels, and an outpour of camo, we’ve sort of seen it all this year, leaving us on the edge of our seats for what the Resort 2014 season will bring us. So far, we’ve seen lots of texture, a continuation of punk from the 2013 Met Gala, and garden-fever from our favorite fashion front-runners. Take a peak at some of the most coveted looks from this years Resort 2014 collections.
Chanel gaves us a largely black and white affair, with rich influences from the Southeastern Asian city-state, Singapore- where the show was held. While the clothes were the antithesis of punk (ie: pearls, tweed, and high-waisted silhouettes), it was the beauty look that left the fashion world smelling like teen spirit. Exaggerated cat-eyes, and rough and tough pixie cuts juxtaposed the super-fem collection, making these punk princesses a force to be reckoned with.
Oscar de la Renta presented a collection that was in full bloom for 2014. Floral prints, and fit-and-flare silhouettes inspired by Oscars own garden proved to be a true testament to the famous designers craft. Ladylike details, peplum tops, and exquisite embroidery are perfect for Oscars number 1 client- the ladies who lunch.
Raf Simons gave us a punch of color in his dynamic cruise collection for Christian Dior. Bold and bright is back, and with full force. From the looks of this show, Raf is keeping with tradition combining casual couture in one complete package. Maj.
Our radar is alert! Super chic, ultra modern lucite heels have undeniably captured our hearts as each see-through heel is our own take of the modern glass slipper. We’re currently seeing lucite heels from crowd favorites: Jeffery Campbell, Miu Miu, Diane Von Furstenburg, and Lanvin. And while for a few decades we’ve categorized clear heels under “stripper shoes”, the current lucite anything trend has been dubbed a must have for your closet!
Celebrities are shaking things up a bit this Spring, by embracing the sunny season with crazy prints- and we’re not talking pretty little floral dresses. After a surge of pastel gowns, and one safe red carpet look after another, I think it’s okay to state that we’re ready for some sartorial drama. Say goodbye to monochromatic pieces, and hello to geometric, kaleidoscope prints- a trend that has taken over the wardrobes of hollywoods top fashionista’s. From mix-matched fun, to downright insane, check out our roundup of trippy celebrity prints!

Let us know what you think of the crazy print trend!
As we enter the month of May, I’d like to think it’s safe to assume that we made it through the wrath of Winter (you can never be so sure with Mother Nature). And although the saying, “April flowers, brings May showers” could still hold some truth, that’s not to say we shouldn’t be prepared for those scorching hot Summer days that are peaking through the storms. Here are a few Summer Essentials to get you prepared!
The Bright Bag: With so many different bags on the market, there is often the inquisitive questions of what kind to get, each season. This Spring/Summer the answer is easy: you need a bright bag. Weather it’s PVC, neon, or studded, just make sure you’re carrying something in a stand-out shade! (Orange Satchel: nastygal.com)
Classic Eyewear: Having the proper sunnies per season is so crucial to proving ones style. But why not invest a small chunk of your wallet into shades that will last you forever? Save the funky glasses for a cheap price at Urban Outfitters, and splurge on a pair of classic Ray-Bans that never go out of style! You’ll totally get your money’s worth.
Swinging Fringe: This boho-chic bikini is making major moves onto the pool party scene. So be sure to get your shimmy detailing on this Summer! (Yellow Bikini: nelly.com)
Crop-top/Maxi: I’m never totally sure whether or not I like crop-tops. I guess it’s the notion of college girls slicing their shirts in half, and pairing them with tight, black, mini’s that has me thrown. But thanks to OscarPRGirl, I finally found the light when I saw her pair a polished mid-riff, with a floor-length maxi-skirt. The combination is flawless, and perfect for a BBQ with friends!
Turbonator: We’ve seen the ever-so-chic head piece make it’s way through the years now, but 2013 is bringing the ancient turban to new heights. Fancy cut-outs, and saturated tones are adding a fresh take on the hair accessory this summer, and I’m totally digging it. Thoughts? (nastygal.com)
P.S. An amazing way to protect your skin, while hanging on tight to your sun-kissed glow is with the Dior Bronze Sun Protection Body Care! The product offers unique SPF30 protection, combined with a faster tan!
So for all the east-coasters out there, dust off your open-toed shoes, and update your wardrobe this season with these fresh new pieces! Summer is just around the corner.
Fashion has made so many twists and turns in the years that I have been alive, that some of the trends I LOVE now are trends I told myself, years ago, that I would never follow. Mixing and matching is one of them! I used to make sure that everything I wore matched perfectly. I never used to do the print on print look, or put a bold color with an outfit, but now it’s something I do all the time. In today’s fashion world, it is so easy to pick a few things out of your closet, and no matter what color or print it is, putting them together will still make a great outfit for the day.
I love to mix n’ match, and there is no better time to mix n’ match than during Spring and Summer. Hot weather brings out the fun fashion side out of everyone, and the trend is even something that we all love to do with our bikinis, whether it be with mixing prints, or colors.
This is a trend I can see staying around for quite some time, and I’m not complaining!
One of my favorite Spring fashion trends that we have seen up and down the runway is the classic crop top with a skirt. Personally, I prefer the a long, ankle length skirt, because it gives it that beach-y, Summer feel, but this trend looks great with any type of skirt, or even shorts! Top the look off with a cute pair of wedges if wearing something short, or a stylish pair of sandals or flats if wearing something a little longer.
I am absolutely obsessed with the outfit by Emilio Pucci in the photo above. The black crop top paired with, not only a long skirt, but a high waisted long skirt! Now that is perfection.
Here are a few #StreetStyle looks:
This trend is loved by many, and is a trend that many Coachella-goers are obsessed with! I may not have been at Coachella this weekend, but if I were to have gone, this is definitely a trend I would have been sporting the entire weekend. This style can be dressed up or dressed down. The street style photo above is a perfect example of a dressed up version of it. Pairing it with a set of heels, a blazer, and the pulled back hair in a bun, the outfit was given a classy look with a hint of sass.
(Excuse me while I shop online for replicas of these outfits.)
Spring is surely here and it’s time to whip out your old denims to create contrasting light and dark blue hues for that effortless denim on denim look! Denim jeans and jackets are timeless pieces you’ll always have in your closets so what better way to make use of them for the simplicity of the perfect denim duo outfit! Skinny jeans are taking their exits so take your boyfriend jeans and light chambray shirts to create a clean, crisp, classic look paired with bold statement jewelry and colorful espadrilles or your favorite pair of pointy toed heels!
Spring break season has officially hatched, and fashion is taking a whimsical vacation off to the Island of Hawaii. Proenza Schouler, Isabel Marant, and Kenzo have dipped into tropical prints for the Spring/Summer 2013 season, which means we should all follow suit!
Now, I know what your thinking- Hawaiian Print? At least all I can think of when I hear about hibiscus florals, palm leaves, and hummingbirds on clothing items, is the Beach Boys episode from Full House when the fun-loving family shares the stage with the 80′s group singing, “Aruba, Jamaica ooo I wanna take ya. Bermuda, Bahama come on pretty mama.” Okay- maybe I went too far, but if you don’t remember the episode, I know you all have an Uncle, or a male figure in your life who cannot resist the thought of busting our their Hawaiian print shirt on family vacations (Danny Tanner chic?). The thought is just disastrous when it comes to fashion, but designers are proving that the exuberant print is back with a modern, and sexy twist. Say Aloha to the new and improved tropical print. I’d totally rock it this Summer!
