HELOOOOOO anyone who is reading!!!
I'm back after much needed break and I have been gathering my thoughts and ready to spill the hot trends I have spotted over the season. Much to my wondering eye, I spotted much of color coming back! (Thank goodness!). As much as I love the whole, fall neutral somber look, I feel as much as probably others that it's time to bring back pastels and fun neons into the mix. One major trend I remember from fall fashion week which could be a good depiction of what could be seen much this year is color blocking. May I remind you that "color blocking" is bold, solid colors stacked onto each other. Such as, I spotted many shades such as teals and coral colors put together with non-fuss silhoettes (sorry for the spelling!). This is a very clean look and very put together but without the fuss and with the bright colors means none to little use for acessories. Let's say it together, (Less.is.more.). if you aren't quite sure about adding colors you can go for a small pop of color to light up something that has minimal color. if you feel ready for the trend, stick to three colors or less to avoid the "clown effect."
Another trend I have spotted coming from the models is bold bright lip shades with bold (yet shapen) eye brows. I adore this trend and I love a good bold brow to be honest. Also, the bright lip that strays from usual red and shows us colors such as fun pinks puts a modern twist on this trend. Models for the shows tend to bring the bold brow to the extreme for runway shows, so a simple everday wearable tip (if those of you aren't fortunate enough to have the genes for bold brows) is using an eyebrow pencil and shading in your eye brows to bring in more attention to the face. also to shape the brows, just tweeze or wax around the outside. Remember to keep the eye makeup mininal so it isn't competing for attention with your brows and keep this is mind if you are going for a bright lip. One important makeup tip I still remember to this day is pick one area of the face to accentuate and never more than one. Another tip with eye brows is to keep them looking natural. For example if you have light hair make sure to not make the brows too dark and likewise for those with dark hair.
One trend I am very partial to is layering acessories. One important advice that is said by the great Coco Chanel is, "always take one acessory off before leaving the house." Make sure that if you are going to layer is to make sure that the pieces are different lengths and one piece isnt overpowering the other. With jewelry trends, they are going beyond the simple silver and gold, and adding colored gems. These can be great with a simple outfit to "jazz it up." Much of the jewelry this year is going to have a tribal vibe with large bright gems and fun colors. With fun colors come bold prints that made a huge appearance in runway shows last fall. Much of the pieces were geometrical or floral and can add personality to a simple outfit. There were also prints that were pixelated and had a "futursitic feel" to them. remember when going for this trend to use one pattern and accentuate it! \
if you arent feeling the accessories, why not try clothes that have an accessory feel? metallic is not only for shoes or bags, anymore. The silvery material was found on pants and skirts and can brighten up something as simple as a blouse. Not only were they spotted in the usual metals, but fun bright colors such as emerald green were spotted.
Of course with spring comes pastel colors, but styles put a different turn on the usually candy egg bright colors. They lowered the hue a bit and gave a more mature feel to the trend which could be perfect for a garden party or spring outting in general. These were featured on many dresses that showed off the legs which is perfect for spring. With the prim and proper aspect of spring coming into the stores, were tops that had ruffle along the waist which added dimension and the illusion of curves to pencil skirts and cropped pants. This look will show off your best features in the most flattering way!
