Spring: The Time for Bling

I am SO happy that the days are actually starting to get warmer, sunnier, and lovelier. Another fashion trend for spring is bling. You might think of bling as chains or a very blatant piece of accessory but that’s not what I’m thinking. The new trend suggests that you should: take a break from the recession and wear a whimsicality of gold, glitter, and crystals (not bejewels though…).

Burberry Prorsum

Think simple and subtle, rather than showy and obvious. Here are some ways you can wear this trend:

All tops are vintage

Places to find these types of tops include: Beacon’s Closet, Zachary’s Smile, and Topshop, and any other little boutiques/thrift shops.

Exceptional Exposure

Until the current season thaws, this trend won’t be wearable until spring! Lingerie looks has made its way through the many trends and is a huge hit! Bustiers, corsets, suspender belts, sheer layers, and bra tops make up what is now a trend-to-be during Spring 2010!

(in descending order: Jasmine Di Milo, Sophia Kokosalaki, and YSL)

So, will you be wearing your innerwear as outerwear? If so, check Topshop for colorful & cheaper versions of lingerie wear.

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

Tying Your Wrists?

Not literally, but what do you think of bows? While some people enjoy putting bows in their hair, many are now hopping aboard the trend train of the season: bow cuffs. There are designer ones and cheap plastic ones, but in the end, are they a trend you would want to try? Bows are adorable, but I’d rather not put them on my wrists. They deserve to be on gift boxes, headbands, shoes, and dresses.
