Latest Fashion Trends Spotted on NYFW

Tuesday, September 27, 2016

Every September, designers, fashionistas, and other A-listers gather in New York to agree what's hot and what's not, show off their style, and dictate trends for the upcoming season. While designers presented spring 2017 collection, fashion-lovers, journalists and editors showed us what’s wearable and trendy for this autumn. Here are the latest fashion trends spotted this September in New York.

All eyes on sleeves

This fashion week was all about statement sleeves. Flared sleeves were a huge trend last season, but now the designers presented sleeve slits and we've seen them on various shows – from Phillip Lim and Lacoste to Michael Kors and Prabal Gurung. Beside the Flashdance shoulder trend, which is a timeless classic, a single shoulder cutout drew attention and settled as a must-have statement for the upcoming spring season.

Michael Kors added ruffles to his sleeves, while Proenza Schouler played with the well-constructed looks. If you're skeptical about this trend, just have a look at fashion journalist Anna Dello Russo rocking it in a Saint Laurent dress with sleeves resembling a black swan.

A white shirt taken to another level

A bit over-sized, simple white shirt never really goes out of style, but this season, designers gave it a somewhat modern twist. Alexander Wang added tie details to a traditional shirt as well as asymmetrical sleeves and collars. The Banana Republic and DKNY presented white shirt dresses making it a perfect addition to anyone's work-wear wardrobe.

In spring 2017, it's all going to be about unexpected hemlines, loose cuts, and interesting embroideries – as seen on Anya Ziurova, Jillian Davidson, and Camille Charriere.

Modern twist on old-fashioned jewelry

Old-fashioned jewelry inspired by baroque and ancient pieces was a big hit on many shows in 2016 and continued to dominate the runways in New York, as well. Tiaras, body chains, brooches - it all looks very luxurious with chunky gemstones and golden details. Brides-to-be should look forward to this trend since it’s something that can easily be transformed into beautiful bridal jewelry.

Check out Alexander McQueen’s head jewelry and body chains, Gucci’s oversized pearls, or Balenciaga’s striking mix of crystals and pigments. The best thing about old-fashioned accessories is that they can easily be morphed into modern attire and still appear quite sophisticated.

White boots made for strutting

Fashionistas like Alexa Chung and Megan Gray stunned the street style photographers with a comeback of a long-forgotten trend - white ankle booties. They dominated street fashion in the ‘90s, but we’ve seen fashion repeating itself many times, so white boots are rather the rule than the exception.

With a pointed toe and small heel, they make a perfect addition to any outfit - from jeans to midi skirts. We’ve seen Kendall Jenner wear one of those earlier - she styled them with mom jeans and cut out Metallica T-shirt, so there’s an idea for you.

Exotic vibe of tribal necklaces

From Roberto Cavalli’s lucky charms earrings to Prada’s fetish objects, tribal accessories ruled the runway shows in New York this autumn. Heavy, oversized, opulent necklaces are going to be a big fashion yes for the upcoming season, especially those made of big hoops and hammered metal that we’ve seen on Tom Ford’s models. They match perfectly with boho style that’s been trending for the last few season, but it can also work with minimalist wardrobe as a single statement piece to complete the outfit.

Some of the trends have been already embraced, while for the others we’ll wait and see if they’re going to stick around. The best thing about this NYFW is the diversity - there’s really something for every taste. It doesn’t matter if you’re into minimalist clothing or you like to flaunt in various cuts and colors - you’ll certainly find inspiration for your everyday and special occasions outfits.

2016 Top Wedding Fashion Trends

Sunday, September 25, 2016

Planning and organizing your wedding day can be somewhat stressful, but picking out your wedding dress can make all the worries go away because it’s one of the most enjoyable tasks you’ll have to do. Finding your perfect wedding gown requires some patience, but as long as you feel confident with your own body shape, you’ll definitely find something that will make you look stunning. Wedding trends are always changing and the year 2016 has brought some of the more interesting variations of the traditional wedding dress. Take a look and you just might find your perfect style among the following trends.
Go pastel
White and ivory will always be timeless when it comes to wedding dresses. But for those who would like to spice their look up and refine their appearance even more, pale pastel colours like pink and blue are very popular this year. By going with the palest shade of the mentioned pastel colors, the hue can make your bridal look even more special and dazzling.
Crop tops rule
It seems that the trend of crop tops is here to stay because it found its way to the wedding dresses as well. This trend is both casual and chic, and with just a bit of skin showing, it can make a world of difference regarding the whole bridal look. Romantic lace or sweetheart necklines look great on a crop top and when chosen right, this kind of dress - with separated top and skirt - can elongate your figure.
The wonder of sleeves
Sleeveless wedding gowns with straps or bodices are still very popular but this year’s trend of long sleeves got equal attention. Plain, straight-cut sleeves look very elegant while see-through ones that are embellished with lace details can add an additional touch of romance to your look. Moreover, wide sleeves can look great with a specific theme, be it mythology or fairy tale.
Make room for feathers
Again, artificial flower details can be considered a timeless trend when it comes to wedding gowns, but this year there has been a burst of feathery details that threaten to take the flower's spotlight, detail-wise. Feather-embellished wedding gowns look both very elegant and edgy, so, in that respect, they might be a perfect choice for you.
Suit up
This year has welcomed classy two-piece bridal suits to the mainstream aisles of wedding stores as well. The variety of cuts and luxurious materials can easily put bridal pants and tops on the same level as a traditional wedding dress. These are perfect for a more casual wedding, for a bride who values practicality, freedom of movement and fashionable classy style above all else.
Pop of colour
When pop of colour is mentioned for a wedding day, most brides-to-be will think about colourful flower patterns or feather details, but this year, wedding shoes in striking bold colours were very trendy. Of course, bridal shoes can be an effective accessory on its own regardless of their colour, but the trend that incorporates vivid brights to decorate the bride’s feet has blown up instantly.
Capes and veils
There was a time when veils lost their popularity even though they’re a traditional part of a wedding celebration. As a complete opposite, 2016 has not only brought the veils back, but flowy and lace capes as well. These add a touch of romantic look to any dress style and perfectly match a fairy tale wedding theme.
Make sure you enjoy your wedding prep as much as possible. Choosing your wedding gown and thinking up your whole look for the wedding are definitely the most amusing parts of pre-wedding chaos, so take this chance to really go all out and take a breather from some other, more tedious tasks.

If you've been following me since I started blogging March of this year then, you know that my favorite season is Autumn. I look forward to this season all year round. The weather is much cooler and there's an over abundance of pumpkin spice everywhere you go. 

I just can't wait for Summer to end! I don't like feeling like I have to shower five times a day. I don't like sweating my hair out! I don't like runny makeup! I can't take it! I can't wait to look cute all day and not wonder if I am staring at the same person who left the house in the morning. Come on! You know you hate when you look cute when you leave home and then towards the evening you're like what the heck happened to my hair.

One of my many reasons I love this season is FASHION. I like to believe that this is the time we get to see who really has style. You pretty much have to put together well thought out looks. I love layering! I love mixed prints and patterns! I love the transition from light colors to cool/warm colors.  I LOVE Autumn! I get to wear knit scarves, boots, chunky sweaters, denim and moto jackets. I have been digging the minimalist style lately. I am sort of obsessed. It's true when they say less is more! I will be putting together a capsule wardrobe this year.  I can't wait to share some of the looks I come up with. 

Are you excited for Autumn? Please tell me I am not the only one!

DIY: Makeup Brush Holder

Sunday, September 04, 2016

Hey guys! I have a new DIY for you! It's super easy! 
This week I stopped by Ikea. I went to look for some things to use around the house but I picked up some other items that I found useful. You know how us women are! 
I saw this glass vase & these little crushed particles that look like real broken glass. I thought it would perfect to use to make a brush holder.

Kulort Decorative Crushed Glass $2.99
Rektangel Vase $3.99

Pour the crushed glass into the vase

Place your makeup brushes inside & there you have it! 

 Simple & Cost effective :P
