In the Spirit of Fashion Week…

Fashion Week is coming to an end (already !?) and there’s something I’ve got to show you. Current/Elliott has made itself famous because of their boyfriend jeans. That trend boat has sailed, but a new ship has arrived. Since last summer, a “sailor-boy” trend arose and it’s becoming something bigger than ever now! With the high-waisted shorts, sailor sweaters and tops, linen dresses, Current/Elliott has made me want summer even more! This ss10 collection has a very vintage, nautically-inspired feel.

I hope you’re all excited for this coldness to finally drift away. Things are getting exciting (fashion wise anyway)

New Season, New Trends

I’m sure I’m not the only one that is completely prepared and excited for the new season so to get you all pumped, I’m going to show you an upcoming trend. This trend, noted by Vogue, Style.com, and Elle, includes themes like military, tribal, and easy pragmatic… *What do you all think this trend should be called?

The trend is summed up by this season’s utilitarian footwear, earthy tones, opulence, hip-slung contour. Effectuating the style into your daily wear is not difficult by any means since this style is shown to be practical. To start, here’s what you should try: Lots of loose layering joined together by a leather belt bind around the waist and completed with a pair of sandals and a satchel. Accessorize with wristbands (easily buyable at boutiques and street markets).

Also, try different textures and pull the look together with straps on belts, sandals, wristbands, etc.)

By strappy and earthy, here’s what I mean
