Every season there seems to be more and more shows, with more and more trends, touted by more and more designers. Even menswear is feeling the effects of the “commercialization” or rather popularization of fashion and because of this, the sector is being hit with more pieces, trends, and collections than ever before. But as dutiful writers we sift through all of this to bring you our favorites, and so the following are a few of my favorite shows from the Menswear Spring 2012 fashion weeks.
If you are a fan of street style blogs, then you’ve probably noticed this trend popping up quite a bit. Accessorizing in brights adds the perfect amount of color to any of your favorite outfits! This trend is especially chic when worked into an all-white or neutral outfit. Plus, it’s a complete mood-lifter and can come in the form of shoes, bags, jewelry, or hair accessories!
Get patriotic this Fourth of July with the Yachtt shoe by Steve Madden. It comes in five different colors and it priced at just $49.95. This cute shoe are cheaper than Sperry’s. Photo from Steve Madden.
Well, summer is officially a week old and with that comes the usual excitement over all the warm-weather activities we can now participate in. One of the most obvious summer activities and a favorite of mine…heading to the beach! And to get you completely beach-ready, I have put together some of the best beach attire just for you!
Fourteen year old actress Hailee Steinfeld’s Miu Miu ad looks great. Shot by Bruce Weber, it has a vintage feel to it. I love the ad and wish nothing for the best for Hailee. I saw True Grit with my dad and knew she was going to be a star. Her style choices are great too. All you have to do is Google her red carpet pics. I think it is great that teen actresses are getting into fashion these days. Remember when teen stars dressed like this. Yuck! Anywho, what do you think of the ad? Photo from BlackBook.
Katy B is one of my new favorite British singers. She is a mix of dubstep, dance, and R&B. I have downloaded a few of her songs to my summer playlist, so I can jam out while I drive around in my car. If you are a fan of Adele or Jessie J, definitely check out her music! Here is the video for one of her newest singles, Easy, Please Me. Thoughts?
This is by far one of my favorite TREND Report posts I’ve done. And the reason: Ajak Deng. Not only is she a street style goddess and fierce beauty on the runway, she is also a humble and gracious role model.
If there’s a perfect time for your hair to shine in its own natural glory, this is it. Having stick straight hair or tight curls with a lot of hairspray doesn’t look good and looks like you’re trying too hard when by the pool or beach. Plus, the heat from styling and the heat from the sun will be too much for your hair. A little shine serum will do.
If you’ve been able to keep up with the random releases of Resort 2012 collections, then you probably have noticed a nice mix of pastel thrown in between the intense neon and bold prints. Blush is the perfect summer color and when worn in light fabrics, it can create an easy yet beautiful I-just-threw-this-on look. Pairing pale pink with weapon-like accessories can add some edge to an otherwise extremely feminine ensemble. Bright pops of colors in your shoes and bag will take the classic lady-like color to an updated and chic level.
Today’s Of Note post is about The Clevelands. I love this mother-daughter modeling duo. I think they are wild, crazy, and fun in the best possible way. I love the great family dynamic and closeness that they seem to have. Check out this video between the two of them from Modelinia.
