One accessories trend most of us have come to love is that of a good statement necklace or piece of jewelry; be it a bib style choker or even larger than life cocktail rings, the jewelry department is definitely leaving the ‘less is more’ mentality in the dust. It seems as though high fashion designers are taking this to heart…on their clothes! Summer runways were dominated with highly embellished tee shirts and prints from the likes of Versace and Preen; that’s right, statement tees are now a thing!
We are loving this look because not only does it give us a nice little throwback vibe to the days of disco(!), wearing one of these conversational prints is as easy as combining with a pair of jean shorts, for a cheeky kind of ensemble, you might wear to an outdoor cocktail party. Also try them on for size with a body con or pencil silhouette on the bottom to put yourself in a serious state of glamor! What is really the cat’s pajamas about these edgy yet sweet tees, is that we no longer have to sacrifice glamour for comfort, they now go hand in hand!
Every lady loves a bit of sparkle in her life, from our make up to our tee shirts and all the way back to our fingers and toes, so why leave our ‘pinkies’ high and dry? Give them some shimmer to match your new favorite outfit with some embellishments of their own and shine on!
Wearing brightly colored jeans has become an official summer style statement lately. From the runways to celebs to the streets and back again, this colorful trend is safe to to say, the go to style of the season! Since summer is usually synonymous with colorful dresses and maxi skirts, the jeans trend is a nice option to have without sacrificing the long awaited color factor into your wardrobe. So, how does one take this look from brightly blinding to just plain eye catching? Simple!
No, seriously, keep it simple! Your bottoms are quite literally the focal point of your ensemble, so best to build the rest of your outfit around them. A simple tee or chambray shirt would work wonders here, leaving you looking effortless and chic! Your shoes can really give extra flair to the look as well; flats for running around during the day or at work are ever so practical, while the transition to night is as easy as switching over to a pair of wedges or flats. Voila, instantly polished!
But wait, we haven’t even gotten to the best part yet! What could be more fun and season appropriate than picking your best and brightest pair of pants with some polish to match! Yes you heard right, matching fingers and toes, talk about a cute color statement! We really cannot think of anything more darling than a wonderfully hued pair of pants, a great pair of open toed sandals and one of our brilliantly bright OPI or Essie colors to match! Anyone care to make a color blocking statement?!
Curious about what could very well be your new favorite wardrobe staple? Well look no further ladies, the fishtail skirt is just what you need to get your summer style just right! The fact that this trend hasn’t surfaced much before is quite surprising, considering how flattering the cut and trendy the style is. This adorable little number is a great example of style symmetry, it shows off your gorgeous gams without being a full on mini skirt, and is proportioned perfectly for us petite gals whose frame might get a bit overwhelmed in a maxi dress, win win!
The fishtail is sure seeing a resurgence in popularity right now, and with good reason we might add, who wouldn’t want their own personal train following them around? While you can certainly find these skirts virtually anywhere right now, it is even easier to make your own! Whether you have a tailor or a sewing machine and an old skirt, you can get in on this trend in a matter of hours! Now this is something we would sure love to DIY!
What we couldn’t help but notice about the ‘tail is that it is so darn versatile. No really it is! You can translate it to office wear in a cinch just by adding something as simple as a blazer and a cute pair of kitten heels. On the other hand, say you are waxing nostalgic for the 90′s, go grunge with the addition of a graphic tee and your best pair of boots (so San Francisco right now). Add a wide stretch belt and tank for a bohemian on the weekends vibe, or color block to your hearts desire and play a ‘lady who lunches’. Case in point right? So much styling, so little time!
