Last year during New York Fashion Week, we saw a ton of cropped sweatshirts and sweaters coming down the runway. Take a look at how GCDC did the trend! Spring is finally around the corner where we can rock this new look. I’ve actually have been wearing cropped sweaters most of the winter paired with high waisted jeans. They are cute, fun, and give a flattering shape to the body when styled the right way. You don’t need to go super short if you don’t want to show your midriff. You can always go with high waisted skirts and pants to gap the difference and make the entire look super chic.
With the first really beautiful day of the new year, we can’t help but to dream about warmer weather and wearing the latest Spring Trends. Here is what will be popular this season with a few pieces from Revolve to demonstrate. I hope you enjoy! Let me know in the comments what trend you are most excited to rock this Spring.
DESIGNER STELLA NOLASCO RETURNED TO NEW YORK FASHION WEEK, IN SUPPORT OF PUERTO RICO AND WITH A MESSAGE OF EQUALITY
Fashion, feminism, and politics have always been heated territory. This year, amidst political upheaval, social strife, and natural devastation (globally, but also locally on the sunny Island of Puerto Rico) perhaps we can say that Mother Nature and Women have had it. For 2018, Stella wishes to highlight the one positive movement which has been gaining much strength: the new wave of women’s rights. Stella’s Fall/Winter 2018 collection aims to give power to the phrase “FEMINIST BUT FEMININE.”
A hobby of mine is casually browse Asos and making dream wishlists. This season, Asos is coming in strong with some of the most beautiful Spring pieces. From new satin Puma Shoes, to cute one pieces for that so needed getaway. I’ve even spotted the latest Spring trend, Color Blocking, in a multiple of cool sweatshirts. There are incredible jaw-dropping dresses to be worn for date night or a cocktail reception. Have any weddings to attend? There are even a few accessories to help you look your best. Want to recreate that infamous Kylie Jenner over-sized striped shirt look? There is even a nearly identical match below.
Take a look for yourself and let me know which ones are your favorite:
You know I am a sucker for a great purse. Especially ones that stray away from the expected. Currently, color block bags are trending and I am obsessed! These timeless yet fun designs are a great way to add a bit of excitement into your daily outfit. Choose a design with a pop of color, or stay monotone with neutrals. Designers such as Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, and even J. Crew are playing with the color block bag trend. Meaning there is a piece for everyone within everyone’s budget.
New York Fashion Week is notoriously fast-paced, and offers an abundance of opportunities to shoot compelling photos. Capturing the essence of Fashion Week can be tricky, but I’ve mastered a few foolproof ways to get those perfect shots with the help of Google’s Pixel 2. Here’s how I capture runway trends, backstage beauty, street style, and everything in between.
A little well known fact about myself is that I am obsessed with sweatshirts. I tell friends all the time, if it was socially acceptable to wear sweats all the time I would. I’ve even contemplating designing my own line of sweatshirts out of the love and obsession I have for them.
So investing in beautiful, soft, well designed sweatshirts and sweatpants is my specialty. Here are the top 5 sweatshirt brands I can’t live without:
We are a few short days until February 1st, which means we are that much closer to the fall/winter New York Fashion Week. Designers will presenting their collection that will debut next winter, and some will be showcasing their spring collection that you can buy now. Rebecca Minkoff, being one of the first designers to incorporate the see now buy now phenomenon. I don’t know about you, but I am super excited to see what will be presented. I have a feeling the #metoo and Time’s Up movement will play an important role in what we will see.
If you live on the East coast, or the Midwest, we’re getting hit hard with snow. It’s been pretty relentless with low temperatures and mounds of white everywhere you look. It does make the city picturesque, but makes traveling a tad more challenging. It’s times like these, a great snow boot is necessary. Not only will they keep your toes warm, but also dry and slip free. If you commute or use public transportation like I do, having a insulated, waterproof boot makes all the difference in the world.
Here is a round up of trendy shoes as well as practical snow boots depending on where you’re heading that day. If you’re running errands, stick with more practical boots. The Sperry Duck Boot may not be the prettiest, but sure does get the job done trudging through puddles of snow. If you are heading out for brunch with the girls or a family function, check out some of these really cute snow boot options below. I was totally inspired by We Wore What’s Sigerson Morrison sheerling snow boots. Unfortunately, they are sold out, but I’ve linked some much more affordable options.
Let me know how you are planning to spend your snow days in the comments!
