Do not let anything but your clothes be distressin’ you this season.
Distressed denim, jackets, tops, etc. are a way to jump into this summer season, with a fun statement. You can distress just about anything, from tops to bottoms, and they serve as a versatile look for both women and men.
Whether you debut light distressing or heavy distressing, it adds a more punk, grunge look to your outfit, which is certainly in this upcoming season. Distressed crop tops, distressed denim, distressed jackets, distressed dresses, you name it, they have it.
Distressed denim, in particular has found its’ way back into our beloved hearts, and style icons of every age have been engaging in the trend. Distressing is a fun trend that is great to wear for every day casual wear, as well as a statement piece for a night out.
This is an all ages inclusive trend, as well as an all inclusive gender trend, for both males and females. Best part about it is that it is completely gender neutral! Great for everyone.
Not to mention, distressing can update an old article of clothing you never really thought about and is an easy DIY project! It’s not very time consuming, and can really do a lot to an old pair of jeans, top, jacket, or dress you were trying to sell at the nearest Plato’s Closet.
Stop distressin’ about your life, and start distressing your closet. This is a universally awesome trend that you should hop on board for!
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.
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.
