Runway shows are ushering in new trends reaching far beyond just clothing and accessories, thanks to the insurgence of backstage beauty coverage gaining almost as much popularity as the shows themselves. Hair and makeup, as seen on models from your favorite shows, are gaining space in the limelight and quickly setting trends for the season. Nails too are no exception, and direct re-iterations of clothing trends have been popping up on fingers and toes everywhere.
These designers opted for bold, patterned looks on the nails of the models sent down the runway. From bright color-blocks to graphic creations, this trend runs the gamut with countless options for your creative pleasures.
It’s that time of year again! Spring has sprung and we are more than ready to revamp our wardrobes with the inspiring Spring 2012 fashion we saw on the runway last September. Fashion bloggers made it easy, Pinterest has made it impossible...not to get crafty with DIY updates to your spring looks. Inspired by our favorite designers, here are some recipes for getting irresistible style for less this season. These little projects also come with the added bonus of beaming pride every time you get a compliment on something you made yourself.
Season after season, Club Monaco has graced us with their flirty frocks and loose-fitting, laid-back styles. The use of neutral colors keeps the designs appealing to most, and the light silk and chiffon materials make them comfortable to wear. To no suprise, their spring/summer ‘12 collection is out and maintains the same chic style as its predecessors!
We love the easy-to-wear pieces in this collection and the day-to-night appeal. The inspiration behind the line was "road trip down California's coastline," which it brilliantly embodies. Each piece has that flowing fit that can be worn during the day with a blazer, or out at night with a leather jacket. The connection to west coast free spirit, and east coast city chic is spot on with silk, cropped pants, knee-length dresses, maxi skirts, scarves, and leather-trim totes and clutches.
We might not know how to change a flat tire or what to do when our i-Phone stops working, but when it comes to our wardrobes, a true fashionista is always prepared. Glam Damn It's list of favorite wardrobe must-haves for Spring 2012 will leave you ready to take over the world! (Or, at least your own closet.) There are so many great options this season, whether you're looking to reinvent your style or just update your handbag.
The keywords for right now are girly and bright. Soft lines, versatile pieces and low-maintenance fabrics combined with a color palette encompassing nearly every shade under the rainbow make dressing for Spring 2012 a breeze no matter what your sartorial preference is.
We are changing our clothes, our hair, and even our home décor for spring and summer. Next on the list: our warm weather fragrance. We here at Joonbug have made our top 8 favorite fragrance list for this spring/summer ’12 that we know you’ll love. Give them a test run! All will keep you feeling and smelling absolutely fresh!
1) Maison Martin Margiela- Untitled (1.7 oz/ $100)
2) Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue (.8 oz/$48)
We, like many of you sartorially concerned males, were caught off guard by last week’s summer-esque weather, so we’ve put together this helpful list to aid you with the upcoming warmer temperatures.
1: Colorful Bottoms: Black jeans may be your go to during the frigid months but Spring 2012 is all about the colorful bottom. From Phillip Lim to Zegna, colorful pants were a part of every runway show. From Phillip Lim’s dip-dyed canvas pants to Gap’s red skinny jeans, the trend takes on many variations meaning anyone can rock this spring look. For those on the timid side, you may want to warm up to this trend by experimenting with a green or beige color. Those of you who aren’t afraid to dive right into this trend should definitely go with a red pant, which can be found almost anywhere.
It was the fashion trend seen 'round the world during this past fashion week brigade. The bright, boxy bag made repeat appearances on the arms of fashionistas all over. Fashion bloggers in the know such as Emily from Cupcakes and Cashmere, Atlantic-Pacific’s Blair, and Carolina of Fashion Squad, have illustrated the many ways you can style this fun springtime accessory.
HONOR, the label by NYC-based designer Giovanna Randall, has officially launched their e-commerce site shop.honornyc.com. This marks an exciting time for Randall and her team (not to mention for shoppers!), as her creations, previously available solely at the Gansevoort Street flagship, are now available to the masses and only a mouse-click away.
Randall's beautifully feminine aesthetic and clean silhouettes combine just the right amount of sexy with sophistication, and the fashion world has certainly taken notice of this rising fashion star. The HONOR woman is young, stylish and not afraid to have fun. We're willing to bet she shares many of the same qualities as the designer herself.
From London, to Paris, to New York and Copenhagen, fashion enthusiasts, and trendsetters all stand apart and together at the same time due to their keen sense of style. This week, we found a common trend among the fashion street elite and the looks were a perfect transition into the spring weather we are looking forward to!
Prints, patterns and pastels seemed to be the hot style on the streets this week with fantastic spring patterns like floral and polka dot. We chose some of our favorite looks of the week from street style blogs like The Locals, FabSugar, Elle and of course, The Sartorialist to give you all a little inspiration and insight as to how you can incorporate pastels into your look. All of these women show the combination of pastels and prints in their own unique style and prove that there are multiple avenues you can take to wearing pastels.
Warm weather is finally coming our way, and with it, our warm weather clothes! Dresses, tanks, and most importantly, sandals and peep toe shoes are appearing slowly, but surely. As we have started to see, this spring’s trends encompass bright colors and crazy patterns, so it should come as no surprise that shoes have followed suit. The chunky, funky heels are definitely an interesting add to the mixture of chaos going on for spring ’12 styles. With wild colors, brilliant combos of fabrics and textures, and of course, the chunky heel or wedge, these funky shoes will be taking on the style scene by storm.
