Spring 2013 Trend Alert: Black and White

24 Feb

The days are getting longer and the temperatures are rising, its that time of year again- Spring! One of the biggest trends that have hit the runways this Spring season is the back-to-basic black and white look. These two colours are classic  and staples for most women’s wardrobes and when paired together, it can be quite elegant.This trend has stormed runways in all cities and most recently during New York Fashion Week by top designers such as Michael Kors and Oscar Dela Renta. This trend has also appeared in almost all retail stores Spring 2013 collections including affordable fashion stores such as Zara, Forever 21,  H&M and Topshop.

Michael Kors

Oscar Dela Renta

Louis Vuitton  has also followed with the black and White contrast trend as well, however putting a different spin on it with a checkered pattern. Check mate?

My favourite piece that follows this trend can be found at Zara. It  this stripped blouse with pockets that can be paired with black trousers or leggings and a colorful shoe to make the outfit pop.

What are your thoughts on this trend? Yay or Nay?

Trend Alert: Military Chic!

26 Sep

Hey dolls,

First off, I would like to apologize for the lack of posts this past month! It has been crazy with back-to-school, but I promise we will be back with a ton of posts. Starting with this trend trend that has been popping up everywhere these past few weeks. Fall fashion is all about military chic! It’s combining the usual fall colours, like army green and brown but adding a bit of an edge with studs and camo. This trend can easily be incorporated into your fall wardrobe since all of the major stores are carrying this trend. I’ve already invested in a studded camo jacket and a studded army green vest… and I love them!

This is how I styled my army green studded vest from Zara:

My other favourite item is this Camo jacket with stud embellishments on the pockets (also from Zara):

To complete the perfect military chic look, pair your outfit with a pair of  cute combat boots (Found at Aldo).

Hope everyone enjoyed this quick post! Check back soon for more posts about beauty, fashion, and much more.
