These fashion trends will have you coupling and twinning with your boyfriend or male friends this spring.

Tie dye

It is back and on trend forbeveryoneπŸ€—. This time around it gets a more comaflouge vide with heavy strikes and plenty of white space. This treatment lends a look of brush strokes.

Retro flowers

That 70’s retro floral style is back this spring. Think bright shades on a dark background.

Stripes

Even though not in the same direction, this trend gets a nod because of it’s similarities to each other while still looking different. While men have 1 hue mixed with a white background, women have thicker blocks of color.

As always if you try these looks, tag us on your image to be featured on our Instagram page!!

That yoga outfit is that the only way to look taller. Skip the leggings and skinny jeans and try these new looks.

By Yvette E

With so many silhouettes that landed this summer, there is no need to default to work out clothes for longer looking legs. Here we look at 3 outfits casual enough to wear all day and still add 4 inches to your look.

High waisted jeans with crop top

Wearing crop tops can always make you look taller but pairing them with a long jacket or leggings can look unkempt. Instead, add a high waist pair of jeans, a jacket the stops at the waist and some booties to pull the look together.

Culottes and platform shoes

We always think wearing pants that showcase the ankle can be tricky but in reality it’s easy. Remember don’t wear shoes higher then the hemline. Here you can pair these pant with a graphic tee to look less formal.

Midi skirt and heeled sandals

I don’t recommend getting a midi skirt that falls below the knee but if you must, stay away from booties and other shoes that take away space.

Remember the real trick of looking taller is space between shoes and clothes or just between clothes.

Happy Wednesday!!πŸ’‹

It’s not about skinny jeans anymore but it may be hard to style the looks. We break it down for you.

By Yvette E

The skinny jean has ruled our closets for seasons but this season opens up with so much more options and subsequently more body types.

THE LOW RISE

These jeans are not butt friendly or stomach for that matter but if you do spend all that time in the gym then why not?

Pair with crop tops and cool sandals.

WIDE LEG

These at waist jeans are not for those with short legs but great for those with robust thighs.

Pair with a tee or blouse and ankle boots for a cool girl vibe.

CULOTTES

These wide leg ankle length jeans land at the waist and show off the ankle.

The silhouette makes it easy to pair with long sleeve looks and ballet flats.

HIGH WAISTED WIDE LEG

Finally mom jeans have been de-throned with this versatile body fitting look.

Best paired with flats and crop tops but still hides the tummy and accents the butt.

EMBELLISHED

Embroidery, stripes and hem designs are making jeans more dressy and more acceptable to wear at work and nights out.

Animal print is resurging again but with more artsy mixes. Here are 3 reasons you should get into the trend and how to incorporate it into your style for seasons to come.

By Yvette E

Timeless

Animal print seems to jog in and out of fashion’s radar every couple of years and not always with a new twist. So here is the best animal print to add to your wardrobe for every style.

Classic

Abstract zebra print is classic and neutral in brown tones. It doesn’t look too wild and can easy be subtle.

Casual

Take a jog with Cheetahs and wear a dense print as a shirt and pair with jeans. If the traditional print seems a little dressy, try the black and white version.

Romance/Vintage

Animal print in colors and pastel hues gives a new meaning to the romance and vintage dressing a seen on this Asos top.

Punk/Goth

Snake print as been a fixture in the Punk community for several decades no matter it is in style or not. Most likely you already have this print in your closet. This fall ditch the traditional gray hue for a darker version.

It’s finally sweater weather but not time to dust off those ones you wore last year. We run thru 3 sweaters trends anyone would want to store for the next winter.

By Yvette E

Knitwear is still on the forefront of fashion and the love of comfort is sure to keep it there. We checked what’s in style right now and here are the trends we think you will love:

Say it with a sweater

Words on sweaters are now as popular as graphic tees for both men and women. The only difference is a women has a phrase while men only have a single word. Still, it’s a trend that spans both sexes.

Graphic Sweaters

Corner or all over prints have become a staple for both sexes with men sweaters more of a combination of neutral hues while women have a taste of the rainbow.

Textured Sweaters

Fringe details and 3d effects are making sweaters more interesting for both sexes. Ikat and braiding motifs seem fresh with a more haphazard placement then in previous years.

The motorcycle jacket has become a wardrobe staple but how to incorporate it into your personal style has still been a mystery. Till now..

by Yvette E

ORIGINS

The moto jacket has been synonymous with alternative cultures in the US and its recent entry into fashion. It started in 1928 when Irving Schott added a zipper (a novelty at the time) to a leather jacket and sold it in partnership through Harley Davidson. The company, Schott Bros NYC still exits today and has seen a resurgence of sales.

In any rate, the moto jacket started out and is still a rebel accessory so how does one add it to their wardrobe seamlessly? Your choice of fabric is key. This is a unisex post and alternative fashion will be excluded.

CASUAL

Who loves sweatpants more than you and wearing tracksuits? Take the moto jacket style and pick a denim moto jacket. It will be easy to pair with jeans and still have that edgy feel.

CLASSIC

You perfer pants to jeans and will not be caught in sweatpants but also you don’t have a rebel bone in your body, so why wear a moto jacket? There still is a bad ass element to not following the crowd and here is the solution. Look for the style in knits and softer fabrics.

Another option for men is a Military jacket that comes in different fabrics. I have yet to find a soft fabric moto jacket for men.

GLAM

Whether sequin is your first love or you look like your in a boardroom even on the weekends, a moto can add a relax look.

For men, look for quilted, fringe or zipper details to give your jacket a glam feel. (men’s jacket in pic from Eastbay)

For women, embroidery and sequin accents make the jacket luxe. (jacket from Loveculture).

Trends are crossing over more and more as designers are creating for both sexes and with this season’s multitude of choices, cross trending has become a thing.

by Yvette E

You heard of couple matching, and these trends will get you into shopping each others closets. The trick is in the details.

PLAID

Grab your sig other’s plaid shirt and rock on. Plaid for guys is still mostly the red and black variety while women have the full spectrum from gingham and beyond. Rock your Boyfriend’s fav plaid shirt with a corset belt and leggings while guys can snag that plaid scarf.

Leather everything

Leatherlike fabrics are having a moment and here guys have the advantage of the leather coat while women are seeing the trend mostly in skirts and pants. Leather hiking boots with rocker accents are also having a moment. Couple outfits are a go!!

Why the west was fun

Western styles are back and for both men and women with both getting their fair share. An entire outfit was showcased on multiple runways but we really love the patchwork on the shirt.

The stress of planning a wedding can be difficult and nothing is more stressful than finding that perfect wedding dress. In lu of going with the status quo or shopping at mass market store, why not try a new designer? The ethereal beaded dresses at lotus thread has all wishing we were brides to be.

By Yvette E

Inspired by the timeless elegance of old New York….

…..Lotus threads

Themes and styles

As the story unfolds, we found ourselves pretty far from the above statement of inspiration and instead transported to the brands namesake, an ethereal forest with far east themes. The decorations were beautiful but the concept seemed foreign to the 1920’s style of the wedding dresses themselves.

We can not say that the theme was a direct contradiction since there was elements of spiritual concepts throughout the collection including the use of sheer fabrics, and cape-like trains.

All in the details

I always thought the true nature of fashion is in the details and here we can see every single piece.Β  This dress is one of the simpler pieces since most were reminiscent of the beading of the 1920’s, this piece reminded us of the 1970’s flower child.

These are up close of the beaded dresses and the first thing that stuck out at us was the difficulty of adding such intricate beaded motifs to sheer fabric.Β 

of course, the show had some help with the atmosphere with the hair pieces from Erica Koesler, food by Petite B and the flower arrangements by Christopher Polizzoto.

Happy Monday, πŸ’‹

Pants seemed a thing of the past as a fall separate (the power suit still reins) so we compiled 5 skirt trends to wear now. The best part..they may already be in your closet.

By Yvette E

Wrap skirts

Once deemed a summer staple, wrap skirts have entered the fall as the next big thing. Season shifting has been a big part of fashion as a means towards innovation. Pair these styles with bright hue stockings which are also having a moment and ankle boots to show off your legs.

Maxis

These skirts have been on trend for sometime but this season, you will find them in leather, pleats and colorful patterns. For classic dressers, be daring and try them in suede.

High waisted

The maxi skirt that keeps going can hide your tummy and show off the waist but beware if you are busty. If you do happen to have ample busom go big with slouchy crop sweater.

Asymmetrical

We love something different and even though it’s not thigh friendly, you should own at least one this fall.

Patterned

Three patterns stuck out for everyday wear this fall: Animal, plaid (see our guide to plaid) and floral. All seem very style specific so we sugguest for classic dresser stick to herribone and other neutral plaids and for casual dressers try abstract floral prints or small floral prints.
