Trend: Mom Jeans

The term “Mom jeans” makes me cringe because it makes a generalization about moms and what they wear. These so-called mom jeans were thought of as dowdy, unattractive and unflattering for the longest time. But silhouettes and combinations are frumpy right up until they’re fashionable. And now, the very same fashion industry that judged the silhouette unfashionable is putting it on a pedestal. Mom jeans are currently very trendy and hip. Fashion can be very fickle so laugh a lot, and don’t take it too seriously.

Mom jeans are an ‘80s inspired silhouette. Sometimes they’re described as high-rise ankle jeans or high-rise classic jeans. They are very high in the rise, fitted on the waist, hips and bottom, have ease through the thighs, taper to the hem, and are cropped in length (about two inches above the ankle bone.) They are not boyfriend jeans because the waistband of mom jeans finishes on the natural waist in line with the belly button, and the crotch point is in the regular position. The ease through the thighs varies depending on the fit. Slightly tapered hem widths are not skintight and can be rolled to create shorter lengths. The collection below shows a good assortment of mom jeans silhouettes.

What I like best about the mom jeans trend is that it has thrown yet another look into the melting pot of fashion. This reinforces the notion that there’s no such thing as a fad, that items take a long time to date, and that almost anything goes. The power lies with us and not the fashion industry, as we pick and choose from the vast assortment of silhouettes that is today’s fashion.

This is how I see the good and not-so-good of the mom jeans trend:

The Good

  • It’s a good fit on a curvy body type with a narrow waist and fuller hips and thighs
  • It’s a fabulous fit on a long rise and regular-to-long waist
  • It showcases the waist and adds structure to an outfit, thereby creating conventionally flattering proportions
  • It showcases the curves of your bottom
  • The high-rise and tailored fit is comfortable and girdling
  • The silhouette looks fresh in a sea of sausage-casing skinnies
  • It’s a trendy look and a fun flashback to the glorious ‘80s

The Not-So-Good

  • It’s not the best fit for a short rise and short waist
  • The point is to tuck or semi-tuck tops to showcase the rise and midsection, which might be an area you prefer to conceal
  • High rises can be uncomfortable on the midsection and accentuate the bulge on the belly, especially when seated
  • It’s not very streamlined on the thighs, despite the ease in fit
  • It can create a wedgie
  • The past stigma of the style might be too strong for you

I like the mom jeans trend for a few reasons. I enjoy showcasing my waist with a full or semi-tuck. I adore ‘80s fashion, and feel that the silhouette looks fresh and Modern Retro. I’m also sick of stretchy, tight jeggings and would much rather wear mom jeans.

I’m set for jeans for Spring and Summer, but I’ll look for a pair in the Autumn. I’ll need to be careful with the length of the rise because although I have a regular length waist, I am relatively short in the rise. I’ll have fun finding the perfect pair.

Over to you. What do you think of mom jeans, and will you wear the trend?

Mindy Kaling has some very Kelly Kapoor thoughts on the tiny sunglasses trend

’90s nostalgia has essentially taken over the fashion world these days, and that includes eyewear. Celebs’ sunglasses have gotten so small, it’s like they stepped out of The Matrix (or your favorite Mary-Kate and Ashley straight-to-VHS movie). The tiny sunglasses have been seen on the faces of the famously fashionable like Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner and of course Kim Kardashian West — by request of Kanye, who famously told her “You cannot wear big glasses anymore,” via email. But, one star has had enough of this trend, and she’s started a Twitter debate for the ages.

Mindy Kaling took to Twitter to denounce the trend, stating simply “I think we will regret this tiny sunglasses look.” The tweet was met with both support and opposition, leading to some hilarious responses.

One user in support of the look says, “Never regret something that made you feel good.”

One user took Kaling’s side and said, “They violate every rule of what I believe sunglasses should do and be.”

Another user said she hopes Kaling is wrong, because she’s already committed to the trend: “I hope not I’ve already bought like 7 pairs”

Even celebs weighed in on the debate. Kathy Griffin tweeted a picture of herself in large-frame sunnies with the caption, “Couldn’t agree more.”

And sunglasses afficionado Busy Philipps threw in her two cents, tweeting “I’m flat out refusing (ok I bought one pair but mostly [my daughter] Birdie wears them).”

For what it’s worth, Jennifer Aniston is not a huge fan of the look either, telling Glamour that she’s “not a fan” of the style. “I just think they’re ridiculous. I’m a fan of classic sunglasses.”

The question remains: Will Kanye West respond to Kaling’s position? The rapper, who has had a series of out-there tweets as of late, predicted the whole trend would take off, instructing Kim in an email to stop wearing big sunglasses because “it’s all about tiny little glasses.” He even hand selected a couple of pairs for her. “He sent me like, millions of ’90s photos with tiny little glasses like this,” she said on an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

This jewellery trend is definitive proof that mermaids are cool AF

Who knew Ariel was such an icon?

There’s no denying the influence of fairytale icons in our sartorial choices. But while we appreciate the more obvious Disney t-shirts, we generally prefer a more subtle approach.

Which is why the latest jewellery craze to take over Instagram is right up our street. You could say it’s more or less inspired by the Little Mermaid, as it involves shell-shaped statement earrings. The likes of Pandora Sykes and Dutch blogger Lizzy Vdligt are already converts, and we’re so there for it.

Scallop shells + side burns = lethal combination, amirite 🥟 🥟🥟@annaninanl

A post shared by P A N D O R A S Y K E S (@pandorasykes) on

The Venus shell earrings are part of the Stranger Tides collection by Dutch jewellery brand Anna + Nina, and come in both gold and silver plated and hit that sweet spot between vintage and contemporary, making them ideal to elevate the most basic of outfits, like a white t-shirt and cropped jeans.

Shop now: Venus Earring brass silver-plated for £118 from Anna + Nina

It’s also the perfect finishing touch to a pastel trouser suit or floral dress for a wedding.

This sweater though 🥐

A post shared by Lizzy (@lizzyvdligt) on

They are prices at a reasonable £118, plus you’ve got the added bonus that the brand is relatively niche, so you’ll be ahead of the style game here. And really, can you put a price on that? Ariel wouldn’t.

Meghan Markle’s White Dress Features a Trend That Isn’t Going Anywhere

The world is anxiously awaiting the reveal of her wedding dress next month, but in the meantime, Meghan Markle just stepped out in a white dress that’s perfect for daytime spring and summer occasions that are a little more low-key than a royal wedding. After months of cold weather in the UK, we’ve gotten used to seeing Markle bundled up in sweaters, trousers, and coats, but since spring is in full swing, we’re finally getting a glimpse of the future royal’s warm-weather style.

The dress that Markle stepped out in today for a reception with Prince Harry is by Altuzarra, and she accessorized it with a crossbody bag, pumps, and a blazer draped over her shoulders. The pinstriped and belted dress features a trend that we think is classic enough to ensure that it’ll be around for awhile: big buttons. (For context, this detail is currently adorning tons of tops, dresses, outerwear, skirts, and even swimwear on the market, but it was Khaite that really set the trend in motion.) We love that Markle certainly isn’t a slave to trends, but she does seem to want to embrace ones that are more subtle and timeless than, say, the vinyl and PVC trend.

See Meghan Markle’s latest look and shop the trend below.

On Meghan Markle: Camilla and Marc Marguerite Blazer ($ 700); Altuzarra Audrey Dress ($ 1995); Oroton Avalon Zip Top Crossbody Bag ($ 221)
Available in sizes FR 34 to 46.

Trend: Wrap Tops

The classic wrap top is back with a vengeance. They were very popular ten to twelve years ago, but fell away when fashion favoured the fluid and oversized vibe. The sisterly version that followed the wrap top was the draped blouse, or wrap-front top. Wrapped in front but voluminous on the midsection, creating a different look to the traditional tailored “ballerina” wrap top. 

I’m happy to report that the tailored wrap top is on trend. I love when modern classic items make a trendy statement and become the hip contender. It sends a message that fashion fads are a dated concept, that trends have a higher longevity factor than they used to, and that it’s how you incorporate an item into an outfit that makes it look current and fabulous.

Wrap tops are tailored at the waist most of the time, thereby creating conventionally flattering outfit proportions. To my eye, this looks fresh amidst the sea of unstructured tops of our fashion era. The wrapped front can be real or “faux” depending on the style. Either way, the silhouette narrows at the waist creating a streamlined effect. Wrap tops can be woven or knitted, sleeved or sleeveless, long or short, and patterned or solid.

Here’s a collection of wrap top variations.

Sometimes, wrap tops aren’t tailored at the waist, as these examples show. Some do narrow at the hem with a welt or tie creating structure that way. Some look wide and straight. These tops are suited to those who don’t want to define the waist, but like the visual effect of the wrap.

Wrap tops that define the waist are a slam dunk on a curvy hourglass and pear-shaped body type. The wrapped fronts create a V-neckline that works extremely well on a larger bust and/or shorter neck and broader shoulder line. The tops work well with the high-rise bottoms trend because the waist tie and waistband are in the same position on the body.

Real and faux wrap tops can be slightly odd on the wrap section when they aren’t cut properly, thereby fighting with the bustline. But when the cut is good, a wrap top flatters the bustline and waist beautifully. The knitted versions fit particularly well over a larger bust because they stretch and mould to the contour of the body. They can also be quite forgiving of midsection “extra bits” when they don’t cling on that part of the body.

Simple and sleek faux wrap tops layer extremely well under blazers and jackets. The jersey versions are an easy item to travel with, especially for business wear capsules. The maximal versions with gigantic ties and bows on the waist make a fabulous statement on their own. They are hard to layer under a topper, but fun for Summer.

I generally steer away from wrap tops because the necklines are too wide for my body type. My narrow shoulders, long neck, and regular size bust battle to fill them out. That said, about twelve years ago I had a few AMAZING gauzy and delicate faux wrap tops that worked well for my body type. The neckline created a shawl collar effect on my shoulder neck points and the V-shape in front was very narrow. These specific design details provided ample structure around my shoulders, and shortened my neck. I wore them with a pretty lace camisole that peeked out from under the narrow V-neckline, and layered them under jackets. I am open to wearing that type of wrap top because it provides structure where I need it most. I also enjoy defining the waist.

Over to you. What’s your take on wrap tops? Many of my clients are back to wearing the silhouette because they enjoy the streamlined effect.

Trend: Slingback Pumps & Flats

There’s an incredibly rich list of ingredients simmering in the melting pot of fashion right now. Fashion has moved on from fads, and trends now have more longevity. The range of colours, silhouettes and outfit combinations in fashion is greater than ever, and keeps growing. We are at the point where almost anything goes. 

For the last few seasons, fashion has been bringing back classic and iconic looks. In fact, the bringing back of the looks is a trend in itself. This is FABULOUS because it increases variety and diversity, and celebrates the “personal” in personal style. Items also don’t date as easily as they used to.

A great example of all of this is the return of the closed-toe slingback shoe. Slingback pumps and flats look like regular closed-toe pumps, loafers and flats in front, but have open backs to expose the heel and ankle. A strap that “slings back” keeps the shoe on the foot and is what differentiates it from a backless mule. The collection below showcases a variety of examples.

The pointy-toe flat and stiletto-heeled versions look particularly modern classic to me. The block-heeled, wedged-heel, loafer, and mule versions look a little “newer”. The versions with vamp straps have a Mary-Jane vibe and look more Modern Retro.

Where closed-back pumps and flats without straps can slide off your feet, the strap of the slingback can make it a very secure style of shoe. That said, you need a little luck with the strap so that it doesn’t slide down the heel (very annoying). Another annoying thing with slingback styles is when the hems of regular length wide hemmed pants or jeans slide under the heel as you stride because the heel is exposed.

I like slingback pumps and flats because they create a breezy, yet closed-toe look. I prefer to keep my toes covered, but exposing my heels gives the shoe a sandal vibe. I feel a little ahead of the curve because I wore my low block-heeled white slingback pumps into the ground last year. I tried to duplicate them, but they were gone in my size. I LOVE how dainty and dressy they look. The extra strap across the vamp cleverly prevents the strap around the back of the ankle to slide down the heel. It also gives the pump more of a ‘60s Modern Retro vibe.

I bat for Team Slingback Pumps and Flats. How about you?

Trend: Emerald Green

As I mentioned in a recent Spring and Summer trends report, emerald green is having its fashion moment. You can see it come down the runways in full force on my Pinterest board. Some call it jade, Kelly or grass green. It’s brighter and warmer than an earthy forest green, but less warm and bright than a sour apple and lime green. It’s darker than a pastel mint, and less muddy than sea foam and sage green.

Emerald green has hit US retail across a range of wardrobe items. I saw even more green in Dutch stores a few weeks ago. Emerald green can have blue or yellow undertones, making it colder or warmer respectively. The collection shows a range of new-season emerald items, items with emerald trim, and emerald patterns.

Emerald isn’t that popular with my friends, family members and clients, although it is represented in their wardrobes. Clients tend to wear bright purple, pink, cobalt and poppy before they wear emerald green. They’re also more likely to wear it in a pattern, as a trim, or as an accessory rather than a solid clothing item. That said, some brunette, auburn and red-headed clients love the shade of green, and wear it with pride and panache.

I like emerald green and think of it as a preppy ‘80s colour, an Irish colour, and a colour with a sporty integrity. I wore a lot of it in the mid and late ‘80s. I don’t have anything emerald green in my wardrobe at the moment, but that might change. I like it best in a pattern, but am open to wearing it again as a solid. I prefer apple and lime green, and usually choose those over emerald green, but I’m definitely open to emerald green. How about you?

Are Bramis The Next Big Lingerie Trend?

Earlier this week I shared the lingerie trend that weirdly made me happier and since then, it’s safe to say I’m on a lingerie-induced shopping spree at the moment. During my lingerie browsing-bender, I came across the below item on Free People’s site which intrigued me. (Side note: If you haven’t already checked out FP’s lingerie selection, it’s where you’ll find comfortable, affordable, and the prettiest options). Back to bramis though, I love a good fashion hybrid so the idea of a bra and cami merging to one already had me sold. As I digged a little deeper I learned the pieces comes in 25 different colors and an array of different styles. I also perused the customer reviews where shoppers shared how much they loved the item and own it in several different colors. For me, I own the sparkly clay and it’s great mainly because I’m small chested and am into the idea of not having to wear a bra, so if you’re on the same page as I am then I suggest stocking up on the below $ 20 brami.

Trend: Paper-Bag Waists

As I mentioned recently, the ‘80s continue to be a significant influence on fashion. Paper-bag waist detailing is one of the ways, and a trend that has gone mainstream. A paper-bag waist has extra fabric that accumulates high or very high on the waistline, but is cinched in with darts, pleats, drawstring, and tie belt. The top of the waist extends beyond the tie belt and can “ruffle” when the excess fabric is extreme. The point is to fully or semi-tuck tops over a paper-bag waist to showcase the detail. In some instances you can remove the belt and sport a cropped top with the silhouette.

You’ll find paper-bags waists on pants, jeans, skirts and shorts of varying lengths. The collection below shows multiple examples of each.

The paper-bag waist has an interesting visual effect. The excess fabric at the waist and tummy creates volume and widens the midsection, yet the waist definition and tie belt slims the silhouette back down. There is lots of textural interest and plenty of room for movement. The tummy area poufs out when seated, which is the nature of the beast.

The ruffle at the waistline can be extreme or subtle, depending on the style. Most of the versions have front pleats although some have darts and drawstrings instead. Softer fabrics create less bulk at the waist and are a better way to maintain a slimmer effect. The versions with darts or very small pleats and tie belts create a “paper-bag-lite” effect and are another way to go if reducing the volume of fabric is a concern.

The long torso’d hourglass or pretty pear shaped body type was made for a paper-bag waist because the high rise shortens the length of the waist, and draws more attention to an already defined waist. It’s a harder design detail to feel fab in when you’re short in the waist and larger in the bust because the high rise further shortens the length of the waist and accentuates the size of the bust, making you feel less than streamlined. It’s usually not a popular style for very apple shaped body types because it draws attention and bulk to the midsection.

Please don’t think that you have to be tall or very narrow to wear this look. You really don’t. It’s more a question of being proportionally longer in the waist, and adhering to your figure flattering priorities. I’ve dressed apple shaped body types and plus sizes in paper-bag waists who have looked and felt fab because they had long torsos. The paper-bag waist can also camouflage midsection lumpage and bumpage.

I have an old pair of cold weather pleated tweed trousers with a streamlined paper-bag waist and built-in belt. I love these pants despite them billowing out when seated. They are VERY comfortable, beautifully made, and a grand nod to the fabulous ‘80s. I’ve ordered a Summer version from Boden in red because I love to wear pants that are not jeans. I’m a yay for the trend.

Over to you. How do you feel about paper-bag waists, and would you wear the look?

The £120 H&M Conscious dress that ticks ALL the trend boxes for spring

Add your name to the waiting list

Whenever someone tells me that ethical fashion is ugly, I point them right in the direction of H&M Conscious Exclusive – and trust me when I say they change their tune pretty much instantly.

You see the sustainable offering by high street fave H&M is nothing short of beautiful, offering premium pieces exquisitely crafted from recycled fabrics and plastics, such as polyester and linen.

Now in its seventh offering, the H&M Conscious Exclusive 2018 collection has introduced ECONYL® and recycled silver to the line. ECONYL® has been woven into a delicate sheer fabric with dramatic embroidery, which features on a lace wedding dress and dark blue mini dress, while the recycled silver appears in the delicate Arts and Crafts jewellery designed to go with the collection.

‘The innovation behind sustainable materials never ceases to amaze. Recycled silver is made from scrap metal with minimal environmental impact and ECONYL® is a 100% regenerated nylon fibre from nylon waste that support clean oceans. The way the materials feature in our Conscious Exclusive collection shows how the latest technology can be incorporated with time-honoured techniques for spectacular results,’ says Ann-Sofie Johansson, creative advisor at H&M.

The stand out piece and my personal favourite though is this floaty printed maxi dress which is pure #ootd perfection. It’s green for starters, and the print is a modern twist on the floral trend (it was inspired by from the creative home of 19th and early 20th-century Swedish artists Karin and Carl Larsson).

And at £120, it looks so much more expensive than it is. Also in the collection are a pair of go-with-everything black mules and a printed midi dress in the colour of the new season: green.

Here is also a sneak peek of the campaign, shot by fashion photographer Mikael Jansson and starring Aamito Lagum, Giedrė Dukauskaitė and Christy Turlington Burns, model and founder of the maternal health organisation Every Mother Counts.

The collection launches on 19th April.

I’ll see you there.

Fringe Trend: Modern Retro Track Pants

I remember how popular these wide leg and nasty synthetic track pants were back in the ‘70s. Unisex, sporty, and very Adidas. My Dad had a green pair and my brother a blue pair. I wanted a bright red pair with white stripes down the side when I was six or seven years old. Instead I got a blue pair that formed part of my phys-ed capsule for school, and was not impressed.

The Modern Retro track pant has been a fringe trend for five years, and is quite the acquired taste. It’s gaining a bit of momentum with sports brands like Adidas bringing back the look, and mainstream retailers like Anne Taylor incorporating the vibe their own way. 

These athletic pants are beyond body type because they’re baggy with an elastic and drawstring waist, hanging straight without much shape. If you’re curvy on the lower half, you’ll fill them out a little more, but they won’t look structured. Most of the styles are full-length, but some are cropped. Many have studs down the side seams that create interesting slits on the hems.

I think they look too athletic for this leg of my style journey, although I reserve the right to change my mind. I like the idea, and the look on others. I LOVE that they remind me of the ‘70s. I like that they aren’t knitted like joggers and leggings, and have some room. I love them combined with dressy pieces for a Sporty Luxe effect. They look fresh.

Here are three fun ways of styling them with casual and dressy items to create interesting outfit juxtapositions. Choose any colour palette.

LA Casual

Combine retro track pants with a semi-tucked hoodie or tee, denim jacket, and white sneakers. Finish off the look with a structured handbag and some bling.

AMIRI Leather-trimmed Washed-silk Track Pants

Relaxed Tuxedo

Combine retro track pants — cropped or full-length — with a graphic tee and dressy blazer like a tuxedo jacket. Finish off the look with dressy flats or heels, and a structured chain strap bag for glitz. Add a bit of bling. Throw the sneakers back into this combination if you like.

ISABEL MARANT ETOILE Dobbs Striped Knitted Track Pants

Easy Glam

Fashion blogger Veronica from Bittersweet Colours wore retro track pants to perfection fives years ago, the first time we featured her on YLF. She combined them with a relaxed pullover, but the rest of the outfit components were dressy. Formal coat, structured bag, and pretty wedged pumps. A very creative combination and way ahead of the time.

Would You Wear This Daring Bag Trend?

We love testing out the weirdest, most whimsical and out-there trends of the moment. We saw fanny packs come sprinting back into the fashion spotlight last year, confirming that “dad” style and anything with a loose tie to ’90s nostalgia is going nowhere. But while the sporty bag achieved major popularity, it’s the fanny pack’s sleeker cousin we’re looking at: the belt bag. Daring, yes. Doable? Debateable. If you’re still hesitant about trying out belt bags for yourself, let these stylish women teach you a lesson in making the “out-there” bag so cool and wearable.

This stylish Norwegian makes a strong case for a polished belt bag, wearing hers over her trench coat.
Play up the whimsical nature of this fun bag trend by opting for an opulent color palette. Obviously, a fuschia velvet-finished Gucci version does this impeccably well. Shop similar: Gucci GG Marmont Matelassé Velvet Belt Bag ($ 980)
Of course, the reigning queen of cool style can make an artful belt bag the statement piece of her award show look. Solange styled the rest of her look around the eclectic bag shape, opting for a pared-back black jumpsuit and equally standout earrings. On Solange: Vere Verto Deco Bag in Black ($ 340)
Still wondering how to make belt bags actually wearable? Hanna Stefansson’s particular brand of Swedish pragmatism is a great example of how it can be done. On Hanna Stefansson: COS Belted Pocket Bag ($ 69)
And now, the Italian-girl way to wear a belt bag, which involves luxurious pieces like a silk robe and pretty flats.
We can’t get enough of this super-sleek look and double wraparound belt bag.
Yes, you can wear a belt bag casually too. Opt for a cool graphic T-shirt and relaxed-fit or deconstructed jeans.
Double up on bags—whoever said one was enough never witnessed this chic look.
This fashion trifecta is a must-try for the trend-forward women among us: beret + blazer + belt bag.
Minimalists everywhere, take a cue from Canadian blogger Elif Filyos and wear your belt bag just like this. On Elif Filyos: Urban Outfitters Lera Croc Convertible Belt Bag ($ 34)
Ever the trendsetter, KJ opted for an oversize denim jacket and tiny sunglasses with her Prada bag, giving us all ’90s-era style envy.
Mark our words: Girls with a bit of grunge style will all be wearing this Bella Hadid look in no time.
Let your pretty belt bag take center stage by using it to cinch your waist over a longer midi dress. Shop the style: Gucci GG Marmont Matelassé Leather Belt Bag ($ 1100)
Man Repellers are all going crazy over Leandra’s use of mixed prints and traditionally clashing colors. As usual, the unexpected works on her.
A business casual look with a belt bag? You’re not alone if you thought the previous sentence was an oxymoron. Yet this look is all the proof we need that elevated belt bags (this one is a previous season Loewe style) can be office-approved, too.
It’s no surprise Kim Kardashian West’s Alexander Wang leather fanny pack sold out the moment she wore it out in public. (Okay, we’re exaggerating a tad there, but the celeb-loved bag is basically nowhere to be found on the internet.)
An updated suit will surely balance out the bag’s forward style. But no matter how you plan to try out this daring bag trend, keeping it consistent with your own personal style will help it all seem wearable. And now, shop our editors’ selection of belt bags that you’ll actually be able to pull off.

Is This The Next Going Out Top Trend?

The off-the-shoulder top has transcended from a seasonal item into a timeless must-have, but like any trend sometimes we’re in need of a revamp. Feast your eyes on the one-shoulder top—this season’s answer to the romantic staple. Keeping with the shoulder-baring theme, this style is just as flirtatious as its more seasoned precedent, yet creates all the more the visual interest.

One-shoulder tops have proven to be not only versatile but also unexpected, making the perfect transitional piece. Dress them down with a pair of classic skinny jeans, or even pair them with a matching skirt to create the illusion of an elegant dress. Either way, this style will become a regular in your wardrobe rotation this year. 

Ready to ditch the off-the-shoulder look? To get you started, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite takes on the updated piece.

The #1 Trend That Will Be Around for the Next 20 Years

When you think of classic trends, what comes to mind? Chances are you think of items like black ankle boots, trench coats, dark-wash jeans, and so on. Well, there’s one trend that should also be added to this list: leopard print. When you think about it, the spotted print has never really gone away. Though the pattern may seem more prominent in various seasons (FYI—it’s trending this fall and was seen at the runway shows of Isabel Marant and Saint Laurent), it’s always around in a variety of iterations.

This winter, we’re spotting a slew of women in bold leopard-print finds, including gorgeous coats, skirts, scarves, ankle boots, and everything in between. To be honest, if you invest in one of these items now, chances are it will still be in style in 20 years—given the trend’s perennial nature.

Interested in how fashion girls are wearing leopard print this season? Go on to check out our favorite outfits of the moment, then shop our favorite spotted finds.

While a basic neutral skirt is great, elevate your look by choosing one in a leopard print.
Sure, the print may seem bold, but if you pair the look with a solid-colored top and simple shoes, it will look effortlessly cool.
Don’t want to go all out? Try the print on a fun accessory like a scarf.
You can’t go wrong with a leopard-print coat—especially when paired with a T-shirt, trousers, and cool flats.
A leopard-print bag is a simple (and chic) way to test out the print. 
We love how these printed booties pop against the black tights and fringe skirt.
While you could go for a full-on leopard-print coat, an iteration with an accent is a subtle, chic way to test it out.
Here’s another chic example of opting for a pop of leopard. We love how she paired her statement coat with a simple sweater, jeans, and heels.
Meet your new favorite office blouse.  Available in sizes XS to L. 
Want to test out the look with statement shoes? Try this gorgeous pair. Available in sizes 34 IT to 42 IT. 
You’ll want to wear this cozy coat all winter.  Available in sizes 2 to 12. 
A clutch is the perfect way to test-drive the trend in a subtle way. 
Copenhagen-based brand Ganni is getting cooler by the minute.  Available in sizes 4 to 10. 
Team this minidress up with tights and ankle boots for the perfect night-out look.  Available in sizes 0 to 12. 
We’ve found the perfect leopard ankle boots for under $ 200. You’re welcome.  Available in sizes 5 to 11. 
Admit it: Your old leather jacket could use an update. Available in sizes XS to L. 
Because faux-fur bags are a thing.
This is guaranteed to get you tons of compliments.  Available in sizes XXS to XL.

How to wear the velvet trend IRL and always look chic

Definitely not OTT

velvet trend

Let’s be honest, the velvet trend is not an easy one to pull off. It might look good on the catwalk at TIBI, Altazurra and Jason Wu, but when it comes to executing it in real life, it’s an entirely different scenario altogether.

During Fashion Month, more was more, with models layering jewel-coloured velvet suit over embellished sheer blouses, teaming draped velvet gowns with velvet boots… you get the gist. Even on the street, fashion editors like Giovanna Battaglia went next level OTT (in a good way, don’t get me wrong) with layer upon layer of velvet in bright colours and bold shapes, right down to the velvet Gucci bag.

But now back to real life. Rocking up to work in a pink co-ord isn’t for everyone I get it, though it’s a pretty jazzy option for the Christmas party. The key to ease into it, and more importantly not have an entire wardrobe that’ll be outdated as soon as the trend is over, is to invest in one or two key pieces that’ll blend in with your current wardrobe.

Personally, I’m a big fan of the smoking jacket, in classic black. I wear it with a pair of cropped mum jeans and sock boots at work, and if I want to dress it up a bit, over a silk slip dress with velvet mules. If you’re feeling brave, try a colour like deep red or rusty orange, which you can mix in with more neutral shades.

Obviously it’s party season, and velvet dresses are literally everywhere at the moment, so you might as well embrace them. Wraparound styles are flattering on almost every shape. Go for a khaki or navy option that’ll be a tad chicer than the obvious red.

Then of course, there’s tonnes of gorgeous velvet accessories, starting with the aforementioned Gucci bag, which is is a subtle nod to the trend that will really elevate your look. Or, if you’re partial to a kitten heel like me, then Zara and M&S have some excellent slipper mule options.

This Classic Trend Is Ageless, and Zendaya Can Prove It

Suiting separates are a perennially chic option for men and women alike—and while some might find the look specific to a certain age bracket, there are plenty of modern style stars refuting that notion. Take Zendaya, for example. The 21-year-old actress and singer recently stepped out in a totally unique tuxedo look that proves the style suits everyone (quite literally).

Her jacket and pants are by Dutch designer Ronald van der Kemp and feature unexpected details at the lapels that give it a cool vintage effect. While we’ll always appreciate a classic suit, we love that Zendaya chose an iteration that incorporates a bit of unexpected edge. When it comes to dressing to impress, a well-tailored pairing as seen here is always a great option, whether you’re 19 or 99.

Scroll to see and shop her look.

On Zendaya: Ronald van der Kemp suit; Casadei shoes. Similar Styles: Zara Crossed Blazer ($ 90) and Trousers With Vertical Ruffle ($ 50); Prada Leather Pointed-Toe Pumps ($ 670)

Taylor Swift Can’t Stop Wearing This Perfect Winter Shoe Trend

While her new album has been toppling sales records, Taylor Swift has been busy promoting it with a slew of performances and appearances. Although she’s worn everything from bomber jackets to sequined dresses, all of her recent looks have one common element: combat boots. Since debuting Reputation, Swift has worn the trend with nearly every single outfit, both on stage and off.

So what does her covetable boot collection consist of? Most recently, she wore the Fendi Logo Biker Boots ($ 1150) for a performance in London this weekend, though she’s worn versions by Michael Kors and Prada for other outings. If these looks are any indication, we think we know exactly what to expect for her upcoming stadium tour costumes: a lot more combat boots.

Pippa and Kate Middleton’s Coat Trend Will Never Go Out of Style

With Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s impending wedding and Kate Middleton’s pregnancy, there are more eyes on the British royal family’s personal lives than ever before. Of course, there’s one thing we’ll always focus on: their impeccable style. This week, both Kate Middleton and her sister, Pippa, stepped out in the same timeless trend: black-and-white houndstooth coats.

Believe It: This Is the Trend That Will Replace Leggings for Millennials

The athleisure trend, in all its sneaker-filled glory, has had a grip on the fashion industry for a while now, with scores of brands capitalizing on the demand. But as Business of Fashion reports, there’s a different market that’s growing more quickly than athleisure for the first time in several years: denim.

The numbers prove it. “According to data from retail technology company Edited, the first half of 2017 saw the women’s jeans market grow by 79 percent compared to the first half of 2016,” BoF reports. “Athleisure leggings, by comparison, grew just 35 percent.”

For more insight, Business of Fashion tapped Dio Kurazawa, the denim director at trend-forecasting company WGSN. “It’s not that athleisure is going away,” he told BoF. “It just means that folks are choosing not to have six different pairs of Lululemon tights and they’re opting to settle back into their denim. Millennials are driving the changes.”

Specifically, millennials are gravitating toward the vintage denim trend. Massimo Ferrucci, the jeanswear president of VF Corporation (which owns Wrangler and Lee), explained the trend to BoF: “The younger consumer is attracted very much by Americana, by originality and authenticity, by product that comes from the archive.” In fact, the trend is so huge that it prompted the launch of the new Levi’s Authorized Vintage collection, consisting of 50,000 old jeans that the brand purchased from the resale market. With that said, are you ready to swap your leggings for vintage jeans?

New Wedding Trend Alert: Are “V-Vites” the New Way to Get Your Guests to Say Yes?

engaging invites

It’s safe to say that weddings have a come a long way since our parents said “I do.” Even the details that lead to the big day, are a big deal. Invites included.

Introducing Engaging Invites — the interactive stationary and video invites that are picking up major popularity amongst newlyweds. Not to be confused with e-vites (videos sent through email), the interactive stationary is the very mashup of when something old meets something new.

invite2

With some of the more luxury options including an embedded 7-inch LCD screen, built-in speakers and up to 3 minutes of video, these unique invites are not only a formal way to save the date, but they’re also good to save for years to come, as the LCD component is rechargeable and doubles over as a keepsake for guests.

invite5
Newlyweds to be, Mecca Moore and Antoine Henson, are gearing up to surprise guests with interactive invites. Slated to tie the knot in March 2018, the future Hensons and “soonlyweds,” want to gift guests with a keepsake they can cherish a long after they exchange I Do’s.

“In my line of work, I’ve helped plan and curate many high end events,” said the future bride to be. “So it’s important that I include more than a few, key elements for my wedding I feel are unique, and apart from the events I’ve had in the past.”

The best part about video invites is that they still boast traditional details, mimicking a card-like exterior for the perfect wedding nostalgia. As founder Dearrick Knupp said, “We’re not selling invitations. What we’re really selling is surprise and joy.”

And if you think they’re are limited to just weddings- think again. Like all other “Répondez S’il Vous Plaît,” Engaging Invites extends to everything from Weddings, to birthdays and holiday parties. Find out more by visiting their site!

Roaching is the latest dating trend we all need to watch out for

Are you being roached?

There are terms for everything nowadays and it has got to the point where in order to navigate the modern dating game, you’re going to need a millennial dictionary.

There was stashing, submarining, ghosting, haunting, and let’s not forget – kitten fishing – something that we’ve all been victims to. But if you thought that was it, you can think again because there’s a new dating term that you need to be very aware of.

Introducing ‘roaching’ – the latest dating move that we all need to watch out for, usually occurring early on in a relationship.

Roaching – a term coined by AskMen – comes about when a new partner hides the fact that they are sleeping around.

We have all had the new relationship ‘talk’ – you know, the one where one party tentatively brings up the exclusive chat, and it emerges that the other party has actually been dating multiple people, something that they have either covered up or refuse to apologise for, insisting that there was never any implication of monogamy.

That is roaching.

If you think that’s depressing, wait till you hear how the name came about. ‘Roaching’ comes from the theory that when you see a cockroach, there are lots more that you don’t see. Yes, we told you it was disgusting.

We’ll be keeping our eyes out for this dating move!

This Is the Prettiest Way to Do the Naked Trend

We’ve seen the naked trend take on new forms this year: from nude leggings to sheer maxi skirts, it turns out there are a surprising number of ways to do barely there style. But Gigi Hadid’s latest take may just be the prettiest we’ve seen. The model stepped out in a head-to-toe sheer pink ensemble that felt surprisingly polished.

For an appearance on the Today showHadid braved rainy NYC weather wearing a sheer lace bodysuit and coordinating sequin skirt by Nina Ricci. The see-through bodysuit, though not appropriate in all professional settings, worked well when styled with demure add-ons, like Hadid’s midi skirt and dainty Prada heels. One final tip: As much as we love this pretty pink ensemble, if you do try something similar, we might recommend adding a blazer before strolling past the HR department.

This new trend is proof we still look to Diana for fashion inspiration

It’s everywhere for party season

diana dynasty trend

You really don’t have to be a genius to know Princess Diana was a style icon way before the term ‘influencer’ was a thing. Remember those trainers she wore that Kate Middleton later brought back in fashion?

From power suits to Sloane ranger-esque checked jackets, I literally can’t count how many fashion trends she championed which are coming back in force this season.

Case in point: Dynasty-style dresses that are everywhere for party season (and handily just in time for the reboot of the show on Netflix. You know the ones. Shoulder pads, a bit of ruching, perhaps some velvet, a healthy dose of sequins and pretty much anything that shimmers.

diana dynasty trend

Now obviously, this isn’t a trend for the fainthearted, and more importantly, you don’t want to look like you’re an extra from Pretty in Pink. However, it is possible to nail the trend, the classy way, and obviously Diana knew how. Which is why she was dubbed Dynasty Di at the time.

diana dynasty trend

At the Shirley film premiere in 1989. Image: Rex

Fun fact for you: She got the nickname from the British press after she wore a white one-sleeved beaded Hachi dress to the James Bond Octopussy premiere in 1983. But it was really in the late 1980s that she went all out with the look, with a little help from designer Bruce Oldfield.

The key, as you might have guessed by these pictures, is to avoid contrasting accessories. Note how Diana always had shoes and bags in the same colour-way, and avoided any embellishments? They also matched the dress most of the time. You also want to wear minimal jewellery. Because of course, you want to let the dress do all the talking.

Fall/Winter 2017 Accessories Trend Report

We’ve rounded up the top ten accessories trends for Fall/Winter 2017. From the stand-out color to the hosiery of choice, this list will whip your wardrobe into shape for the season.

28-runway-red.w710.h473

Power Red

It’s official, we’re seeing red for fall 2017. Last season’s millennial pink has been bumped by its outspoken mama. But don’t limit yourself, thinking you have got to go full scarlet. Experiment with the spectrum of these haute hues that deliver the same fiery flavor. May we suggest HENNA.

810

Western Fronts

Why choose good cop or bad cop when you can just be a cowboy? Western influenced footwear returns for F/W17. Pointier silhouettes and Cuban heels feel fresh and ready for a sartorial stand-off.  Try these sharp shooters.

81617nyc8755ig

Cross Your Heart

Life doesn’t seem to be slowing down, so it’s no surprise that cross-bodies are a perennial fave, allowing for freedom of movement.  Keeping essentials close, it’s a must-have in every accessory wardrobe. Hands up, those in agreement!

New York, NYFW FW 2015 day 7

2 for 1

Belt bags are back with a bang this season. We’re attributing it to a growing trend for functional fashion. This accessory is a calling card to cool but also oh, practical – keeping you go-tos close at hand. An added bonus? Creating a dynamic focal point for even the most casual outfit.

Major-Earrings

Hear Me Out

Debatably, the most playful and easiest trend of the moment is one that appeared in S/S17.  From statement hoops to fringed danglers and everything in between – your lobes are two little canvases just waiting to be adorned. Bad hair days be damned, with embellished ears – no one will notice.

Fishnet-Stockings

Fishing for Compliments 

Those of you with a sharp eye saw this one coming. Fishnets made an appearance last year paired with ripped jeans and sneaks and they migrated into fall. This holey look is anything but innocent, dialling up the drama for day. If you’re timid to go full net, toe the trend with fishnet socks. Ground your look with a chunkier shoe to take the edge off.

Baseball-Caps

Fall/Winter 2017 Accessories Trend Report

We’ve rounded up the top ten accessories trends for Fall/Winter 2017. From the stand-out color to the hosiery of choice, this list will whip your wardrobe into shape for the season.

28-runway-red.w710.h473

Power Red

It’s official, we’re seeing red for fall 2017. Last season’s millennial pink has been bumped by its outspoken mama. But don’t limit yourself, thinking you have got to go full scarlet. Experiment with the spectrum of these haute hues that deliver the same fiery flavor. May we suggest HENNA.

810

Western Fronts

Why choose good cop or bad cop when you can just be a cowboy? Western influenced footwear returns for F/W17. Pointier silhouettes and Cuban heels feel fresh and ready for a sartorial stand-off.  Try these sharp shooters.

81617nyc8755ig

Cross Your Heart

Life doesn’t seem to be slowing down, so it’s no surprise that cross-bodies are a perennial fave, allowing for freedom of movement.  Keeping essentials close, it’s a must-have in every accessory wardrobe. Hands up, those in agreement!

New York, NYFW FW 2015 day 7

2 for 1

Belt bags are back with a bang this season. We’re attributing it to a growing trend for functional fashion. This accessory is a calling card to cool but also oh, practical – keeping you go-tos close at hand. An added bonus? Creating a dynamic focal point for even the most casual outfit.

Major-Earrings

Hear Me Out

Debatably, the most playful and easiest trend of the moment is one that appeared in S/S17.  From statement hoops to fringed danglers and everything in between – your lobes are two little canvases just waiting to be adorned. Bad hair days be damned, with embellished ears – no one will notice.

Fishnet-Stockings

Fishing for Compliments 

Those of you with a sharp eye saw this one coming. Fishnets made an appearance last year paired with ripped jeans and sneaks and they migrated into fall. This holey look is anything but innocent, dialling up the drama for day. If you’re timid to go full net, toe the trend with fishnet socks. Ground your look with a chunkier shoe to take the edge off.

Baseball-Caps

The Top Off

Keep a cool head this fall, taking a note from the boys. Baseball caps are the it-silhouette for F/W17. Branded, textured or rocking a bold color – these hats deliver a big bonus cutting hair prep in half on hectic mornings!

Get the Look: Track Pant Nails, NYFW’s Breakout Mani Trend

Track pant nails at Kith Spring 2018.

When comfort and style come together, enduring trends are born. It follows that haute track pants — sleek and chic, with elastic waistbands for optimal abdominal delight — have been a runway and street style staple for many, many moons now.

In fact, so pervasive is the track pant’s cool factor that the trend has officially transcended the fashion realm. For Spring 2018, the athletic bottoms not only hit the runways of Fenty x Puma, Monse and Public School — among others — their signature stripe motif inspired the season’s breakout mani trend.

Behold, racing stripe nails:

Track pant-inspired nails at Tibi Spring 2018; Image: Courtesy of Jin Soon

At Tibi, Kith and the aforementioned Monse, nail artists Jin Soon Choi, Alicia Torello and Rita Remark (respectively) looked to athleticwear for inspiration. Choi referenced “the street style scene during the 1980s in New York City, when style was born out of curiosity, functionality and individuality.” Torello played off of iconic sportswear brand Champion’s distinctive C logo. Remark paid homage to the varsity letter jacket.

…Basically, they drew track pants on nails — to really cute effect.

Ready to try these chic, clean, easy-to-recreate mani at home? Scroll down for three nail art how-tos, courtesy of our friends at Essie and Jin Soon.

3. On the ring fingers, using red polish, paint a half circle with the flat edge going across the middle of the nail and the curved section dipping toward the nailbed.
4. With a striping brush, add blue polish along the flat edge of the red semi-circle. Then, apply blue polish in an elongated “C” shape around the border of the nail, tapering in at the tips.
5. On the remaining fingers, paint a vertical line of red slightly to the right of the middle of the nail. Then apply another stripe of blue to the left side of the red line
6. Finish with top coat.

Link Love: The Tall Boot Trend

One of the F/W 2017 trends I’m super excited about is the return of knee-high boots. I’ve been browsing Angie’s pinboard, and thought these were particularly fun:

Finding great-fitting tall boots when you have larger calves can be tricky. The Huffington Post has some suggestions.

If you’d like to give over-the-knee boots a try, then PopSugar’s round-up is worth a look.

Fab Links from Our Members

Nordstrom is opening a new concept store in West California that won’t stock clothes: “Nordstrom Local will focus on free consultations with personal stylists, who will advise customers and then have the merchandise brought in. People can also get manicures and curbside pickup.” Aquamarine thinks the concept is interesting, but can’t quite believe this will ever really take off.

LadyNIB found this article about how Forever21 and other retailers avoid liability for factories that underpay workers to sew their clothes thought-provoking.

These Besties Put A Hilarious Spin On The #FollowMeTo Instagram Trend

These days, the #followmeto vacation pic trend is ubiquitous on Instagram. The trend took off in 2013, when photographer Murad Osmann began posting images of his girlfriend-turned wife Natalia Zakharova holding his hand in breathtaking locations all around the world. Here’s one of them in Jordan:

#followmeto the amazing Petra in Jordan with @yourleo. One of my favorite pictures. #shareyourjordan

A post shared by Murad Osmann (@muradosmann) on

Now, a ton of couples do it: 

I feel it coming #followmeto #ялoвлютвоеloveyou

A post shared by T S Y M B A (@tsymbavlad) on

The photos look effortlessly beautiful but as two best friends from Montreal are proving in a viral Instagram post, a lot of hard work goes into staging one.

In the first pic, 19-year-old Instagrammer Claudia Tihan gives us the classic #followmeto pose:

what she see's vs. what i see #swiperight

A post shared by Claudia Tihan (@claudiatihan) on

In the next photo, the perspective is flipped and we see Tihan’s bestie Elisabeth Rioux, also 19, really struggling to get that perfect, Instagram-worthy shot:

If that’s not the ultimate look of concentration, we don’t know what is. 

Since sharing the hilarious comparison pics two weeks ago, Tihan’s post has received over 183,000 “likes.” In an interview with The Huffington Post, the 19-year-old model said the pics were taken all in good fun on a recent vacation in Hawaii.

“When Elisabeth was taking the pics, all I could see was her bending in crazy angles to get the perfect shot,” she said. “It was so great, I needed to snap it. It shows what nobody sees on Instagram in all these stunning shots!”

Yep, clearly, behind every great Instagram is a friend or S.O. willing to contort, squat and bend to make it happen.

Top Beauty Trend 2015: Be Unapologetically You

It’s been an exciting season in the world of beauty. In this past month, Caitlyn Jenner graced the cover of Vanity Fair as her identified gender and Tess Holliday was named the first plus-sized supermodel by People Magazine. The non-traditional, but ever-so-gorgeous Amy Schumer is starring in the new romantic comedy, Trainwreck (on the heels of absolutely killing it in the media for her sketch with Tina Fey, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Patricia Arquette that shamelessly kicks Hollywood’s ass about age discrimination).

It appears we’re making some great strides in eliminating the narrow, cookie-cutter ideal of women in America. And while we are, it’s important to avoid sneaky pitfalls along the way.

“Curvy” women were shamed for so long for not being waif-like – which resulted in low self-esteem, amongst many other internal struggles. Now in this body revolution, the tables have turned and media figures frequently slam skinny women with phrases like “REAL women have curves.” This is not okay either.

Some very thin women are naturally that way (and agonize over not having curves!). Some very buff women enjoy working out and are subjected to questions of ridicule like “Why do you want to look like a man?” That needs to stop. It’s fantastic that body types that were not accepted in the past are finally being recognized as amazing, but we need celebrate ourselves without demeaning anyone else.

The truth is, real beauty radiates out of who we are as individuals; even the modeling industry is taking note!

“The modeling industry is currently focusing on diversity – which I believe is a positive change!” says former Ford Model and owner of TRUE Model Management, Dale Noelle. “We’re seeing transgendered and differently abled models, as well as all body types. Everyone can have a voice now.”

Noelle’s agency (which is CRUSHING it) has been lauded as one of the top agencies for curvy models, though TRUE represents all body types. The attributes Noelle seeks in models are based on more than just the basic requests for specific size, race, or gender.

Here are her top four beauty tips for models and civilians alike:

1. Be Physically Healthy. Everyone’s body is different, but having a healthy body is most desirable. Treat your body with respect by eating nutritious food and exercising. You will rock whatever body type you have, if you have a strong foundation!

2. Be Emotionally Healthy and Have a Positive Attitude. In a judgmental industry (and world in general), it is imperative to remain positive and emotionally stable. Positivity can work wonders when a person faces adversity. Stay true to yourself and make sure your emotional health is always a priority. Stability and positivity starts within and you will receive all that you radiate. Real confidence comes from knowing who you are and truly loving that person. There is nothing more breath-taking than a confident person who shares who they are with the world.

3. Show Your Personality. The most successful models (and the most attractive people in general) are those who are unapologetically themselves.

4. Be Resilient and Stay Grounded. Stand strong in your morals and beliefs. Do not compromise yourself for any reason. As a model, one client might think one of your physical features is attractive and another will hate it – and that’s okay. Same is true for life. You won’t be shaken if you love who you are. And of course, always remember to stay humble!

The fashion industry is evolving into a more open forum for all types of people. As individuals, it is essential to capitalize on your uniqueness. Rid yourself of all thoughts of inadequacy. Make strides towards treating yourself with proper care and recognition; beauty will emerge from your good self-treatment. Always be true to you.

Deborah Lindquist: The Metallic Wedding Gown: A Regal Wedding Trend

By Deborah Lindquist

One of the most glamorous trends in weddings today is metallic wedding gowns. While the thought of considering a metallic wedding gown may bring up visions of bad disco dressing back in the Studio 54 days or blinding pageant dresses, the high fashion/glamorous version of today is a subtle metallic sheen.

Even more beautiful as the days shorten and the less intense fall/winter sun is upon us, the subtle shimmer of a metallic gown is glamorous and romantic. And just as a woman’s preferences of wedding rings and jewelry range from choices of platinum, yellow gold, or rose gold, so can her choice of metallics in her wedding gown.

A Gold Gown
The subtle gold sheen in this two-piece vintage metallic lace and metallic silk organza mermaid gown is an elegant yet understated option. Just a hint of pale gold makes this gown unique. Worn with gold jewelry and a simple, sophisticated updo, the result is a beautifully romantic and body conscious wedding look.

2014-08-01-1goldgown.jpg

A Pewter Gown
Should your preferences in jewelry tend toward the coolness of white gold and platinum, a grey-toned gown may be the perfect choice. With the grandness of a ballgown, this labradorite beaded, vintage metallic lace and pewter silk taffeta gown has a subtle, cool silvery sheen. Complimented by a dramatic take on the traditional bridal veil, the asymmetric headpiece/veil can be worn wrapped around the shoulders or left trailing down the back. And carrying a vintage brooch bouquet is a creative way to incorporate sentimental pieces of jewelry into your wedding day look.

2014-08-01-2pewtergown.jpg

A Rose Gold Gown
If you see the world through rose-colored glasses, a rose gold or copper-toned gown is a perhaps unusual but perfect choice. The pink hue of rose gold is not only pretty, it’s a new standout in wedding rings and jewelry, and flattering on many skin tones. As brides veer away from the traditional white gown to their own choices reflecting their personality and lifestyle, a rose gold gown is a beautiful option for an autumn-themed wedding. Reflecting the colors of the fall season, the metallic sequins and beads on this vintage lace and silk taffeta gown are what give this bustle-back gown its shimmer. Wear rose gold jewelry, keep the hair understated and sophisticated, and you have an unusually elegant wedding look.

2014-08-01-3rosegold.jpg

For a glamorously regal take on wedding gowns, consider dressing in the subtle sheen of gold, pewter, or rose gold on your wedding day.

Deborah Lindquist: The New Summer Trend: Pattern Play

By Deborah Lindquist

While last year was the year of the stripe, spring/summer 2014 has introduced a new trend, the year of the print.

As we know, sometimes trends appear, flutter round a bit and die, while others seem to take the world by storm. If you hadn’t already noticed, prints are everywhere. Graphic, retro, artistic, romantic, you name it. They are all here, sometimes worn in combination with each other, and creating a big stir.

With so many options, where to start and what to choose? Your personality, color of your skin and hair, your lifestyle are certainly factors. Pale girls might choose a subtle print that doesn’t overpower their complexion and hair color while girls with a darker skin tone and/or vivid hair colors can rock a print with more pop. Choosing the right print is about balance. The print should enhance your beauty, not distract from it.

Subtle tones
A feminine retro girl with pale skin might choose a floral pattern such as the 1040’s romantic floral on this bustier. The subtle tones compliment her skin tone while offering a pop of color to make the print interesting and fun. Pairing a colorful print with a neutral toned skirt such as this vintage parachute skirt keeps the look unique and on trend without becoming overwhelming.

Big versus allover prints
If an allover print is just not your thing, a larger artistic image or an applique such as the lilies on this applique cashmere sweater could be a great choice. Prints can found as big as you can imagine or small, mellow and subtle. With that in mind, the sweater with the spaced- out lilies would look great worn with a dress made of a fabric similar to the curtain fabric behind it, just in case you change your mind about the allover idea.

In mixing prints, keep in mind the mix needs to be relatable in some way, (such as similar colors) to keep your look from becoming too busy. Or crazy.

2014-06-21-patternplay21.jpg

Graphic prints
The race for space in the 1960s brought us not only the technology for space travel, but a new and inspiring influence in textile design. Graphic prints such as the vintage 1960s print on this bustier were abundant at that time and are today translated into the current graphic pattern trend we’re seeing in fashion. With a print as bold, colorful and vivid as this, the best way to wear it is with something black, maybe easy black trousers. I’m sure we an all have those in our closets!
