I don’t know if you have been following the shows and trends lately, but there seems to be some kind of clash going on between the 90s and the 70s. Some of you favorite styles-and many that you hated- from the 90s are coming back full force, but coming in neck in neck with them is the 70s. Culottes in various lengths of short are back, suedes and animal prints, platforms, and even bell bottoms are coming back. Are you ready for the 70s trend? Is it something you are going to attempt come this fall? I might. We shall see how it goes. Photos from the Georgine PR reps and Style.com.

Bad Bish- NYFW Street Style Edition

 nyfw street style

I love street style photos. They give me outfit inspiration. I saw a bunch of jeans that had the bottom cut off of them last season, so I just cut the bottom off of my jeans as well. This look right here is perfect for those crisp, cold days. There is something very 70s about it. 70s style trends were all over the NYFW runways. Now I need to find a blanket, so I can get my 70s on. Photo by Tommy Ton for Style.com.

The Women’s Meridian Buckle Sandal is one of the hottest gladiator pumps from Payless. They have a whole slew of gladiator styles from flats to heels, but this pair from their Brash line are my favorite. They come in black and cognac and only cost $39.99, but they are on sale this week for $29.99! Get this trendy shoe for less while it lasts. Photo from Payless.

Shoe of the Week- Mules Are Coming Back

mules
Do you remember mules? Those weird, yet cute shoes that look… well weird, yet cute on everyone’s feet and were popular in the 90s. Yeah. As with all things 90s, this too is seeing a comeback. This trend is definitely one of those hit or miss trends like the the recent Birkenstock craze. Also is there really a wrong or right way to wear these awkward looking shoes?

I think the best way to wear these are with midi skirts and cropped pants or jeans. They might look good with a rolled cuff skinny jean or a boyfriend jean too. I put a few high and low priced options below. Spring is a great time to explore with new trends. I think I may try one of the Forever 21 mules down below. I like the black one with the brown heel that also has a strap. I feel like the strap gives the shoe a less naked feel. As much as I am loving this resurgence in 90s, I really hope dial-up doesn’t come back. Picture from Nordstrom.

The Not So Basic Tee

I love basic tees, but there is really something special about a t-shirt that has a cut-out, is cropped, hangs off the side, or dips in the back that speaks to me. Those are the not so basic tees, and every girl should have one! You can wear them just about anywhere with just about anything. Try them with jeans and leggings, short or long skirts, and underneath blazers and vests. These tees from ASOS are perfect! Click on them for more information.

TREND Report: corals

In case you haven’t noticed, the color of the summer was coral!  And, for all of those who rushed out early this year to stock up on the bright color, you have nothing to worry about because it will continue trending all through fall.  Try colorblocking with a deep wine hue or chocolate brown.  Or add a pop of color to any monochrome outfit with the perfect peach shoes.  Whatever way you decide to wear it, you know you’ll be chic!

TREND Report: leather

For many people, wearing leather in a place other than your belt loops, around your wrist or on your feet is a strange concept.  For fashionistas, however, it’s a completely different story.  The Fall ready-to-wear 2011 collections offered up the best in all-over leather: skirts, leggings, jackets, vests and even dresses!  The effect: Amelia Earhart meets fashion editor.  Mixing a leather skirt with a casual sweater screams effortless chic, while a loose vest is the perfect extra layer as the weather starts to cool down into fall.  And, for those of you less inclined to wear the real thing, never fear!  There are plenty of faux options available from some of your favorite designers including Stella McCartney.

TREND Report: tropical prints

Floral prints have been a statement trend all summer, but now you can channel the vacation spirit a while longer with tropical prints.  Featured in the Resort 2012 collections of Stella McCartney, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Givenchy among many others, these bright florals will hopefully keep beautiful summer weather around for a few more months!  Try pairing your favorite tropical print with a chunky wedge sandal as seen at Marc by Marc Jacobs or throw on an old school visor to channel Givenchy.

TREND Report: colorblocked

Images via Style.

At the beginning of the summer, I featured colorblocking as a trend, so you’re probably wondering why I decided to do it again.  Well, as summer slowly (or too quickly for some of us) winds down, although the thermometer refuses to, I’d like to present to you the pre-fall trend of toned-down colorblocking.  Colorblocking at the beginning of the summer was all about brights and neons, but for pre-fall, cool down the colors and go for deep reds, yellows and blushes.

TREND Report: mustard

One of the best things about fall is the changing of the leaves from green to the most amazing bright reds, oranges and yellows.  To embody the spirit of seasonal change this fall, try adding to your outfit one piece in a mustard yellow color as seen on many Fall 2011 runways including Isaac Mizrahi, Fendi, Giambattista Valli and Hermes among others.  The darker brownish tone of the mustard is the perfect way to add a bright color to your outfit, while not being as in-your-face as the sunshine-y yellows of summer.  If you think a yellow skirt just isn’t you, try adding a mustard clutch to any basic outfit to add interest and style.

TREND Report: tribal prints

Images via Style.

The tribal trend has been a staple over the past few seasons but was especially popular this Resort season and will continue to be a trend through the fall.  With easy-to-wear tribal printed pieces like maxi skirts and structured dresses, this trend has never been easier to work.  If you’re feeling a little less adventurous and aren’t too keen on rocking a large print, try pairing skinny jeans and a white t-shirt with a pair of ethnic-inspired heels like those from Tory Burch or Proenza Schouler.  Accessories are also a great way to work the tribal trend and designers like Tom Binns have put out amazing designs that work great with any outfit, tribal or otherwise.

TREND Report: sleepwear-inspired

This latest trend was a big hit on Resort 2012 runways as well Fall/Winter 2011 and will have you dreaming all day.  While this trend may not be for everyone (particularly those who looove the snooze button), the pajama-inspired trend can look chic when done right.  Pair a sleepwear-inspired top with brightly-colored denim and structural heels for a modern day look.  Or try printed PJ-inspired pants with a tucked-in white button down and brogues for a cool work look.

TREND Report: metallics

This fall, take metallics from a night on the town to a day at the office with ready-to-wear pieces that are anything but 70’s club girl.  With Tory Burch, Thakoon, and Donna Karan, you’ll be carrying the summer sun with you when the weather starts cooling down.  Pair a metallic skirt with a chambray shirt for a Southwestern-vibe as seen at Ralph Lauren or try a pair of gold lamé wide-leg trousers with a tee and leather jacket a la Michael Kors.

TREND Report: tailored pants

If maxis, shifts or sheaths aren’t your thing, never fear.  Tailored trousers are a must-have for this coming fall season and can be dressed up or down, for any occasion.  A pair of classic khaki is updated chic when paired with a jersey top and leather jacket.  Or, if you’re in the mood, try a pair in a bright, bold color for a stunning effect. If brights aren’t your style, try a pair of subdued pink paired with animal-print accessories.  Any way you like them, tailored pants are the perfect go-to piece for this fall.
