Although, thus far, we have experienced very mild fall weather, we have had to wave goodbye to the days of summer dresses and sandals as we welcome socks and sweaters to our wardrobe. This is not to say, however, that we are sad about this--fall fashion is possibly the most fabulous of all the seasons. Filled with cute bomber jackets, chunky sweaters, high socks, and adorable booties, fall fashion is versatile, creative, fun, and easy to piece together. And lucky for you, we have scoured the web and found a few knockout pieces that are affordable, eye-catching, and able to withstand the test of time of trends come and gone. Get your game face on, and have your credit card ready, because you do not want to miss out on these finds!
As summer begins, we start to spend more and more time at the beach or poolside. For this reason, it’s crucial that we rock bathing suits we love to show off. However, sometimes teeny weenie bikinis come with big fat price tags. Some are great investments, but in reality, do we really want to be spending over $100 on two small pieces of fabric that will be getting wet and soaked with chlorine or salt water? Spend that extra cash towards another piece for your summer wardrobe and check out one of these hot bikinis we love that are right on trend and even better, under $50!
A big trend for spring and summer is colorful denim with prints and patterns. We love this look because it can be incorporated into multiple styles. Here are a few of our favorites to get your fashionable hands on this season! Check them out and see which style suits you best. Spice up your wardrobe with a fun and vibrant pair of denim this season!
Vertically striped pants look great on anyone because of their slimming and elongating effect. We also love the bright colors that pump up an otherwise simple look. Find them in high-end brands like Current/Elliot, or for more affordable prices like the Moto Tapered Stripe Jeans from Topshop.
Big bangles are the latest fun accessories hitting the streets for this spring and summer. We saw them on the runways during SS ’12 FW, as designers everywhere decorated their models with big, bold, bulky bangles. From Fendi, to Yves Saint Laurent, to Chanel and Donna Karan, big bangles were a themed accessory. Chanel opted for gold gemmed cuffs, while Donna Karan chose bulky wooden bangles.
As the weather warms, bangles are appearing everywhere. This accessory really makes a bold statement with striking colors and daring patterns. Wear them alone, or pile them up to create a fierce look.
Spring is finally here, and with it comes spring-cleaning. Going through our wardrobes from last spring and summer and detangling the good, the bad, and the ugly is a crucial must as not all of our looks from last year are in style for this season. Yes, we know, staying on trend can be tough and a bit pricey at times. That is why we have provided a list of our top 10 favorite spring dresses for under $50 to keep all of you looking stylish without breaking your budget!
The sheer maxi dress is a big trend right now, and we love Zara’s rendition. The cut is very casual, and the simplicity of the fabric and color makes this a perfect piece to take from day-to-night.
It is no secret that our society is obsessed with the animal kingdom. Animals serve as symbols and icons for everything from ancient history to economics to pop culture to fashion. The owl is commonly known as the symbol of Athena, the Goddess of wisdom and warfare. A bat flashed across the night sky is instantly recognized as the mark of Batman. A horse strategically placed on the left-side of a polo ensures it is that of Ralph Lauren. A bunny wearing a bowtie will inevitably be identified with Playboy. Even a little blue bird has come to be recognized solely with Twitter.
Season after season, animal print has been a recurring trend proving that it's (almost) impossible to go wrong when paying homage to our furry friends. Signature Christian Louboutin leopard print heels look perfect with any LBD, a DKNY python tote will undoubtedly please your inner wild-child, and a Rachel Zoe faux fur vest and some hot chocolate are all you need to make it through a hard winter. Animal prints have left their tracks on everything from couture to runway to vintage to personal accessories to home decor. But this season, the feral trend has been taken one paw-print further. Now, instead of just animal spots, stripes, and prints here and there, ensembles are swarming with entire critters.
The phenomenon of mixing insanely expensive designer pieces with label-less bargain duds began when Sharon Stone appeared on the red carpet of the 1996 Oscars wearing a Valentino skirt paired with a plain black t-shirt from the Gap. It's been fifteen years (105 in fashion years) since the birth of the High/Low craze, yet it is still going strong. Quickly evolving from a trend to a necessity, High/Low fashion has come to mean that mixing a $3 tank top with a $300 skirt is more than acceptable. In fact, it's highly encouraged. Celebs and commoners alike are balancing their wardrobes with high-end designer pieces and cheap-o trendy clothes and accessories.
