Street Style Icons

Who do you look to for your day-to-day fashion inspiration? I constantly am searching for the newest and freshest faces in the entertainment business, who know what to wear and when to wear it.

Every person’s fashion icons are unique to themselves, as you try to develop your own sense of style. Bouncing ideas off of style icons, as well as regular people, can help you form your fashion identity.

My fashion icons include:

  1. Kendall Jenner – Casual, clean lines, minimalist, comfortable and cool are words I would use to describe Kendall Jenner’s style. She always is switching up her looks, often using basics, while including a statement piece to each and every one of her looks. As a model, it is her job to look good and sport pieces that make us all drool with envy. The more beautiful thing about Jenner’s style is that it’s an attainable look for everyone. She sports relatable pieces, such as basic crop tops and high-waisted jeans, that the average American can afford and feel comfortable in. It’s definitely no secret that Jenner loves her crop-tops and high-waisted apparel!

  2. Gigi Hadid – Cool and chic go hand-in-hand with Hadid’s style. She’s often seen sporting lots of chic clothes, and shares a similar style to that of Jenner’s. Both models are friends and bounce ideas off of each other. Hadid’s looks are elegant, and often, attainable for the average American, as well. Clean cut lines are also relevant in Hadid’s style, as she is often caught sporting basics, cool denim, and statement jackets and pieces. Hadid often goes out with a bang!
  3. Vanessa Hudgens – BOHO CHIC. Hudgens can make the best of the best look even more best. Her bohemian vibe and her ability to make things look effortless is a skill that not all can attain. Her style and fashion has adapted into a mature look that everyone can appreciate. Her street style is killer and she does not go unnoticed in my book. She loves her big, flowy pants and I can’t say I disagree with her insane obsession with flowy pants and skirts.
  4. Cara Delevigne – It is so hard for me not to rant and rave about Delevigne’s style, but she’s just so cool. Not only is her personality cool, but her style is absolutely rad. Delevigne is not afraid to take risks and she can always be seen sporting the most in-style items. Everything she owns, everyone else wants to own. Her style is unique, cool, chic, and classic. Delevigne is often caught sporting over-the-top, daring outfits, but somehow these outrageously cool items all seem to make themselves look good on her. Unique is the best way to describe this girl’s ever changing style.

How To Sneaker 101

Timeless, chic, yet effortless is the idea going into this Spring and Summer 2017 season.

Sneakers are in, for both males and females, worldwide. Sneaker corporations, such as Adidas, Vans, Nike, and Puma, have made an epic new comeback as sneakers have become a fashion statement for everyone, males and females included.

The effortless look of a sneaker will be a great way to dress down a rather chic, more nighttime look. Sneakers with jeans, sneakers with dresses, sneakers with trench coats…basically sneakers with everything goes this season!

Sneakers have become a fashion staple, as comfortability is also in this season.

Fashion icons, such as the Kardashians, Gigi Hadid, Rihanna, Blake Lively, Miranda Kerr, and Karlie Kloss have been spotted utilizing their sneakers to freshen up their looks.

celebrity-favorite-sneakers-00 Similarly, for all you guys out there, rapper Jay-Z, actor Chris Pine, fashion-mogul Kanye West and actor Robert Pattinson have also been caught sporting this trend. This trend is huge for not only women’s fashion, but is a fashion-forward statement for men as well.

Kill two birds with one stone, when purchasing your next pair of sneakers, as you can wear your sneakers to class or to the nearest gym. They serve more than one purpose, as reusable basics are in as well this season. You can find sneakers at your nearest retailer or online for a reasonable price, depending on how much you are willing to spend.

Be comfortable and chic at the same time, and take advantage of this season’s laidback look. You can throw away those uncomfortable dressy heels and trade them in for a pair of straight comfort.

New Merch, New Shopping Trip

This last week I spent shopping and endlessly spending my paycheck in useless places, even though you can never have too many clothes. This shopping trip I stopped by Ragstock, Crossroads Trading Company, Urban Outfitters, & Buffalo Exchange.

I generally can find items at these stores for reasonably priced. As you can tell below, rompers and overalls are perfect transitional pieces, as we transition from winter to spring. Florals and lace are also making a statement this season, especially on the runway. Girly accents, such as lace and floral, are a great way to make a cute statement this season.

Similarly, t-shirt dresses and slip dresses are also in this season. T-shirt dresses and slip dresses are easy to layer, and work as great layering pieces for the colder Spring days.

Additionally, platform shoes are taking the stages of many runway shows and are being manufactured by brands, such as DIVIDED and Steve Madden. Puma and Rihanna even teamed up recently, creating a brand of platform creeper sneakers.

A bomber jacket is an absolute must this season. Bomber jackets are sold everywhere currently, and you do not want to skip out on a chance to miss out on this amazing, timeless trend.

Sweaters and jackets are always a must-have, as we transition. Similarly, fringe is making a comeback this season and you would be silly not to find yourself a fringe jacket. A simple fringe jacket can make such a statement, even paired with a simple outfit.

Of course, nude tones are in, explaining the nude baseball cap and nude sweater. This season focuses on minimalist street wear, all while simultaneously making a subtle statement. Nude and flesh tones are great, as you can pair them with just about anything.

Lastly, embellished vintage belts are sold online and off-line in stores nationwide. The embellishment and vintage feel of the belts provide a casual, yet chic statement. It does not matter whether or not your outfit is bland, embellished belts will assist in dressing up many outfits, while making a subtle statement. Wearing embellished belts with basics, such as my black high-waisted pants, creates a timeless look that can be completed with any basics.

Basics are also making a great comeback, still insinuating the idea behind a minimalist look this season. This can be easy achieved with basics that with cutouts, distressing, etc. Basic tees are essential this season, as this season focuses on a relaxed, yet put together look.

Look below for pictures of my recent purchases.

What’s Your Nude Tone?

Tonal nudes are making an epic comeback this Spring. Whether you dress it up or dress it down, flesh tones are making appearances in fashion outlets everywhere and magazines, such as NYLON. NYLON’s March 2017 issue celebrates the “diversity of flesh-tone fashion” (NYLON).

Flesh-tones can be worn up or down, making it one of the most versatile color palette for designer labels, such as, Hood By Air, Stella McCartney, Prada, and Simone Rocha. All these designers featured nude tones in their most recent collections.

Nude tones are some of the most used colors this season for all pieces of clothing and accessories, including jumpsuits, bomber jackets, slip dresses, pant suits, shoes and trench coats. Adding a simple, tonal flesh-tones are a great way to accent your next outfit. Flesh-tone colors can also be worn by all skin tones, which is remarkable, making it versatile for all individuals.

In 2012, nude tones became such a hit that Christian Louboutin even released a whole line of nude pumps for every skin tone. In addition, flesh-tones were featured all over runways during 2012, especially during autumn and winter.

Nudal tones serve as a timeless color palette, always featured on runways every season. There is something about these tonal hues that makes it flattering on all skin tones and for all seasons. This season’s street wear should feature lots of nude tones, which is a perfect way for one to achieve a timeless, chic look, with an effortless, subtle vibe.

Lilly Sarti did an excellent job, featuring nude tones and earthy all over her Spring and Summer 2017 collection. Sarti featured nudal tones in jumpsuits, dresses, etc., emphasizing how versatile this up-and-coming trend is.

 

The whole Kardashian-Jenner clan has jumped on this trend, often sporting nude two-piece dresses and midi-length body fitting dresses.

At La Peria’s Fall 2017 ready-to-wear collection party in Milan, model and fashion icon Kendall Jenner was caught busting out her nudes, wearing a plunging nude bodysuit, with silk satin nude tone skinny jeans and a nude tone cropped fur jacket.

 

Quit hiding your nudes and break them out this season! There’s nothing to be ashamed of.
