As parts of the world slowly reopen people are re-emerging from a year of self-isolation and social distancing. Everyone is eager to party and mingle like it’s 2019. With restaurants, events, and travel no longer off limits, now is the time for everyone to step out of the house in more than just sweats. As the second half of the year appears to be a salvageable one for most, it has been the perfect time to start dusting off some outfits that have been in storage since last year and show them off as you brunch with friends or catch a live concert. Here are some of the styles I plan on wearing throughout the rest of summer.Continue reading “Coming Out Of Fashion Hibernation: The Styles I’ll Be Sporting This Summer”
If you flip through fashion magazines or skim through the style section of a newspaper, you almost can’t help but feel a twinge of envy at seeing models and celebrities looking impeccably dressed, hair perfectly coiffed as if they rolled out of bed in the morning looking like they woke up that way every day. Many of us would be so lucky to manage to not even have one hair out of place before leaving the house. Or if you feel you’re completely hopeless at figuring out what will look good on you, afraid to take any sort of fashion risk that doesn’t include the tried and true but very safe basic T-shirt and jeans, then luckily there are online fashion services that are eager to help with all your fashion dilemmas.
How people define fashion and their own style choices will vary greatly from person to person. Some will make a conscious and deliberate effort to put together an outfit that feels as if it was tailor made for them, and others will reach for the nearest T-shirt and jeans that serves the purpose of looking decent enough to walk down the street to buy a carton of milk and eggs. No matter what your style preference may be, we all know which clothes we like and don’t like. Shopping for items that’s supposed to have one basic function, such as keeping you cool during hot summer months, can sometimes be tricky and a nuisance. Buying a good enough pair of shorts has been my biggest challenge year after year.
As we enter the late part of the spring season, and begin to ease into the hot, sticky summer months, there’s an eagerness to start shedding layers and putting those heavy winter jackets in storage until Jack Frost graces us with his presence another day. Spring and summer are the perfect time for bright colors and feminine dresses. Among the styles to re-emerge is the wrap dress.
Watching the seasonal trends year after year I’m always fascinated when certain styles come back in fashion. Styles, especially evergreen ones, never really disappear. They just sort of get tucked away in the closet until their time to shine comes once more. I march to the beat of my own drum when it comes to the clothes that I wear, though, I do keep a careful eye on what’s trending in fashion right now. One of the styles that never really go out of fashion, but is emerging more prominently this spring, is animal prints.
When particular style trends start dominating the fashion scene, sometimes there’s no choice other than to adapt to them and make them your own. ’90s fashion has been making a comeback in a huge way, and among the styles to return is the high waist jeans.
Shopping for a good pair of jeans can be tough. There are a lot of factors to consider from the color and style to the cut and fit. No one jeans are ever alike, and sometimes it’ll take time before you find a pair that’s just right. If finding your one perfect pair isn’t difficult enough, there’s a new trend I’m loathing even more than going jeans shopping and that’s fake front pockets.
When the weather starts heating up, everyone has their personal fashion preferences they like to wear to keep cool and stylish during those summer months. There’s a lot to choose from, like flirty dresses or shorts with just about any summer top that’ll go with it. But there’s some clothes you might not think would work well to beat the heat and that’s pants.
As someone who loves wearing a ton of feminine clothes with a lot of soft colors, lace trim, or flirty floral patterns, spring is the season these type of styles thrive best. Warmer days are drawing near and soon it’ll be time to throw back those closet doors and take those spring pieces out of hibernation. I like owning a little of everything, from the most current styles to the classic ones. Fashion being cyclical, there’s always at least one or two tops or bottoms that can easily be worn again. Long skirts, or maxi skirts, is another style that dominated much of ’90s fashion along with clogs and crop tops. Despite the resurgence of these long and flowy skirts, I seem to not be taking part in this trend again.
