A new trend I have noticed is polka dot apparel, specifically pants. These polka dot provisions are quite nifty if you want to add a touch of whimsy to your summer ensembles. You can dress them up with a blazer and pumps or make them edgy with a pair of biker boots and a graphic tee. I have yet to get my hands on a pair but I am frantically searching the stores!
Kimono dresses are an asian inspired trend and have been altered to meet the fashion world's needs. Dolce and Gabbana recently made a red and white striped kimono dress that I absolutely LOVE. The style of these dresses are very modern and beautiful. You can pair these dresses with gladiator shoes and a chunky necklace for a fun, modern take on this trend.
I really don't know if I understand this trend just because I have bad experience with floral boots. Let's just say I wore floral boots to school and I got made fun of because of them! But yeah, I think they are beautiful just because I love anything floral!
These crazy cool shoes can be paired with a white lace skirt, and a cute denim vest for a laid back country feel. You can even dress them up with black high waisted shorts, a collared sheer blouse and a blazer
Okay corset dresses are kind of a miracle to me because I love vintage clothing and I know back in the day women wore corsets everywhere. So therefore I love corset dresses.
They are incredibly sexy because they make your body look shapely and can make your curves stand out.
These types of dresses are so fantastic they beg to be looked at, "Look at me! Look at me!"
Corset dresses are just spectacular because they can make you look unbelievably fancy and elegant but also smokin hot! Definitely try this hot trend with some subtle kitten heels or wedge sneakers!
Ok, I know most people are probably like, "say whaaaat????" But this trend is actually really cool! I'm not sure who started this weird trend but I am totally on board! This crazy style has been seen put onto pumps, sneakers, hi- tops, Mary Janes, flats, etc. You can find almost any type of shoe in this eccentric style! And many A- listers have been seen in them, check out Anna Sophia Robb!
Skater skirts have kind of been trending for the past, i don't know, year-ish. So I don't quite know if the trend died down and it's now powering itself back up or something...
Anyways, I love skater skirts because of the way they can make any girl with no figure look curvy and stand out even more! I have some experience with being a ruler straight body type so I know how hard it is to find anything that makes my "curves" pop. Skater skirts are an ideal must have for anyone looking to accentuate their body style or just to try something new! My favorite kind of skater skirt is probably one with a super loud and obnoxious print!
These wardrobe staples can be dressed up or dressed down, for instance:
If you paired a bright orange skater skirt with a black leather vest and some studded wedge sneakers you'd have a very edgy and trendy outfit!
But if you paired a chambray skater skirt with a crop tee and some lazy day sandals you would get a very casual, but cute outfit! Skater skirts are extremely versatile and they come in all different shapes and sizes, have fun shopping for one now!
A huge trend from down under coming up right now is leather vests! They are super edgy and can give any sweet dress a punch of style! These must haves are sooo versatile and I love them<3
Satchels! These accessories are staples in your wardrobe and can be paired with just about anything! I am really in love with this trend and I really can't wait to see how long this trend lasts!
Jumpsuits! Jumpsuits are a bit of a fashion risk in my opinion but so far, what i have seen of them, I like. Graphic and tribal prints are the hottest kind of jumpsuits and I am even starting to see them on the streets! Fashion designers have even made leather jumpsuits which are a HUGE risk because they give off quite the "black widow-esque" costume-y feel but other fashion bloggers have named them "sexy suits".... I don't approve of them but what am I supposed to do?
New year, new wardrobe. If you don't know what the hottest trends are for 2013 then you're in the right place. I have rounded up the best looks from the runway's spring/summer 2013 trend round up.
From bold graphic prints to oriental styling and monochrome color play this is set to be a vintage year for must-try trends.
I have been craving jumbo statement stripes and faux flower florals - so read on to discover your fave new trend for spring/summer.
Floral! Florals are HUGE right now, and I have to say, I am loving it. the floral trend isn't just subject to dresses. Fashion designers have done blazers, pants, jump suits and even floral headbands featured on the runway!
I really love Lauren Conrad's look!!<3 (she's the one on the right in the strapless floral dress)
Tulip skirts! They're totally versatile and can dress up any outfit. Pair a tulip skirt with a fitted tank, a chic blazer, or an over sized sweater and you're ready to go!
Gladiator sandals! I seriously can not go ANYWHERE without seeing a pair of funky gladiator sandals! I really have fallen in love with the beaded kind of gladiator flats. You can wear them with virtually anything! They have also been seen on the red carpet as shown here:
