  • Fashion Friday: Jumpsuits for Women

    There were a multitude of trends to hit us the Summer 2014 season, from bold Brazilian hues to feminine shapes and geometric prints. However, there was one trend that seemed manifest in every category from casual wear to more formal and daytime to night...the jumpsuit. The jumpsuit or romper (short version) has transitioned into fashion's biggest staple right before our eyes as it is so versatile, easy to wear, and the most trendy item in your closet right now. For this Fashion Friday: The Jumpsuit, we recognize this one piece wonder as fashion's biggest asset this Summer and into the Fall 2014 season.

    We love jumpers and rompers because they can be worn anywhere and you can do just about anything in one depending on the style. If you get a comfortable style for lounging, you can wear it around the house, to the beach or shopping. Put a jacket on, add some accessories, and you have a casual nighttime outfit.  If you have a special occasion or a more formal event to go to, opt for an embellished design like Shail K style 3494. Black, with sequin detail, a v-neckline, and a stunning silver beaded waist, this outfit is glamorous but not over the top. Perfect with a classic black heel, this jumpsuit is the modern spin on the perfect black dress.

    Maybe you have a weekend brunch,  birthday dinner, or a date with a special someone and you want to look fabulous, but you are sick of wearing dresses. Put on a jumper that sparkles like Shail K style 3495 in blush. The bold sequins balance the neutral color and allow the piece to be easily accessorized with some silver or platinum colored heels and jewelry! This jumper displays modern fun and classic elegance in one great outfit that can be worn time and time again. Each compliment you receive will be another reason to wear this dynamic ensemble!

    We love jumpsuits for women, and the trend has steadily grown over the last few years, even mading its way to the top of most celebrities and stylists "must have" lists. We are totally loving this craze and embrace it for Summer, Homecoming, and Fall 2014. How do you feel about this fashion forward trend? Share how you wear yours with us!

  • Fashion Friday: Printed Ankle Pants And Crop Tops

    Spring is in full swing and we are having so much fun with the Spring/Summer 2014 trends! What are we loving for this week's "Fashion Friday?" Flowy printed pants and an elegant crop top! The crop top is a difficult shirt to wear without looking overly provocative or sloppy, but the right top for your body plus the perfect pair of printed pants can make this an outfit to wear all weekend from afternoon shopping to an evening out to dinner with friends. A sleek jacket and an awesome pair of heels pull the outfit together for a surely show stopping look.

    Start with the perfect pair of printed pants! Even though the loose casual styles are trending, these pants can be more fitting as long as you feel confident and comfortable. With so many prints and lengths, the options are endless. We love this spring trend!

    Classic Solid Crop Top

    Crop tops are all the rage for Spring/Summer 2014! We love how versatile they are, whether paired with pants for a casual look, a nice skirt for something more formal, or even to the beach over your bathing suit, crop tops are here to stay! For a simple look that can be paired with any outfit, try something like the Dolce Vita "Romilda" crop top above. To rock the look at prom or homecoming, Dave & Johnny style 10003 is one of our favorite 2-piece dress looks to rock the crop top style.

    Light Casual Jacket And Funky High Heels

    Don't forget: summer isn't here yet, so the weather is still fluctuating from warm to cool. So, to make sure you're not showing off too much skin when the cold air comes through, we suggest bringing a light casual jacket or blazer to tie the look together, especially after the sun goes down. Also, add a pair of fun high heels like the Night Moves by Allure Rihanna to lengthen your body and give this outfit an edge. What fashion piece are you obsessing over for the weekend?

  • Makeup Monday: the Must Have Orange Trend for Spring 2014

    From the runways of Paris to the streets of New York City, there is a fabulously bold makeup trend that is written (painted) on every girls face! Although soft pinks and ethereal silvers are also big for Spring/Summer 2014, it seems like shades of orange and coral are all the rage. This orange craze isn't just the new classic red lip either, as it has become a beauty staple on eyes and cheeks, too!

    Orange Makeup Runway ModelThis popping hue is so versatile and fun, it can be worn from morning to-night! Many girls have the misconception that these orange and coral shades can only be worn with certain skin tones, but the truth of the matter is they can be put on every face as long as the proper color is chosen and applied correctly. We recommend girls with warmer skin tones try something bright, perhaps with more tangerine notes. If you have cooler skin, try for something more bold and on the stronger coral/red side. Also, if choosing a matte orange lipstick, avoid adding anything extra like gloss and liner. Let the lips do all the talking!

    When adding this shade to cheeks and eyes, it will give a bright hint of sunshine. If you are tan it will give you the right amount of glow, while if you are more fair-skinned, it will give cheeks and eyes a beautiful, unique pop.

    Orange Eye MakeupJust remember when using these shades to try not to over-do it. Allow your face's natural beauty to add to the color, not the other way around. Try this trend for prom or any special occasion (Graduation, perhaps?) and I am sure everyone will be amazed how awesome you look!

  • Trend Alert! Embellished Sneakers for Spring and...Prom?

    There is a fabulous foot trend that has everyone talking! From the runways to the streets, designers and celebs are opting for some fancy footwork...and they're not high heals. They're rocking embellished sneakers! With Spring 2014 just around the corner, it's the perfect time to try new trends out, and ditching your typical cross trainers to add instant glam to any outfit is certainly a great way to start! Designers like Christian Dior and Chanel flaunted their pumped up kicks adorned with sequins, pearls, and other embellishments on the runways of fashion week, and the runway looks are already hitting the streets. We are loving this trend and can't wait to see how it continues to grow!

    Dior Couture Sneakers Dior Couture Sneakers

    The designers at Christian Dior had models in athletic mesh shoes adorned with multicolored sequins. Chanel also took a bold fashion choice by dressing models in chunky sneakers embellished with tweed, shiny leather, and sheer laces giving the shoes an ultra feminine look.

    Chanel Sneakers Chanel Sneakers

    We are loving these designs and think this fun footwear trend will not only be popular on the streets, but will carry into prom. Many prom dress designers are photographing models wearing high-tops embellished with crystals, interesting textures, and zippers. Even though the Chanel version can cost up to $4,000, you can still get the look with other inexpensive designers and can even make a pair yourself with some time and creativity!

    Of course, if you love high heels, it doesn't mean you have to lose your pumps to rock sneakers at prom. Wear your heels to the dance, but bring the sneakers as your go-to comfy option once your feet start to get tired. Or, keep the heels on all night and rock the sparkly shoes for after-prom!

    Lots of rule-breaking trends this season, including the always infamous no white after Labor Day rule. These rebellious celebs are going against the rules of fashion by keeping white throughout the fall and winter. It's all about how you accessorize and the type of fabric.

  • Rock the Black and White Fashion Trend

    Black and White is a classic combination that never goes out of style, no matter the year or season. It's a style that adds elegance to any look. Lately, it's been a trend that's been getting a lot more attention, so we wanted to give it a special spotlight and make it our Trend of the Week.

    You better believe that celebrities have been all over this trend lately. It’s a great color trend to play around because you can so easily go from day to night in a black and white outfit, just by changing your accessories and makeup. Not only that, but it's appropriate for any occasion and any age group, so it's of course a great choice for Homecoming or Prom!

    Below are our favorite black and white looks for Homecoming, Prom, and any other formal event that you may have soon!

  • Trends That Work For Every Season!

    Before you start packing up your summer clothes and start making room for fall fashion trends (and Homecoming, of course), make sure you're not storing something that can be used for any season! There's so many different staple trends, from handbags to your nails, that you shouldn't be afraid to wear and re-wear, no matter what the season may be. So, read on to learn what trends you can easily transition from your Summer wardrobe into Fall...and even Winter and Spring!

    Crossbody Bags

    Why pack away your favorite crossbody bag? Crossbody bags fit perfectly with the over-sized sweater trend for Fall! They're also perfect to hold any little items you need for class, such as pens, pencils, and highlighters. The best part, though, is that since they're cross body, the weight is more evenly distributed, making them not super heavy to carry. Perfect for walking around campus! All of the bags listed above are from dELiA's and they're $19.90 each; such a great price!

    Neon Accented Nails:

Mix your favorite natural color with your favorite neon shade, and bam! The bright and bold neon is the perfect design to make those nails pop!

    Graphic Tees:

Well, this #ManicureMonday we're combining those two trends, because it doesn't get much better than a look with both neon AND ombre in it! We've been loving all of the ways you can rock neon in your outfits and on your nails, but with ombre being such a big hit lately, too, we asked...why separate the trends??
