Trendspotting: Leather

Hola my dears!

Today is a beautiful day and its actually starting to get cold in the South (whadya know?) And I’m  actually not a big fan of the cold but its still bearable out there, just cold enough that I can pull out a few cute cold-weather items. 🙂

This leads me to a spotlight on the perfect cold-weather trend for fall…LEATHER. Leather is a big trend for fall. I’m seeing it on celebs, runways, and everyday street fashionistas, and as it gets colder, this is definitely a trend to embrace. Leather is mostly worn in black, but there has been a rise of colored leather as well, as of late. Check out a couple of pictures I accrued below of the trend being put to best use…

The leather trend comes in various colors, shapes and styles so there is something leather out there that can flatter anyone. Gon’ get you some!!

Menswear Mondays: Bowties

Hello All, It’s Menswear Monday!

Today I want to focus on a simple way for my men to polish their look.

BOW TIES

Can’t go wrong with a bowtie! Well, ya can, but lets not go there  today. Bow ties are an easy way for my men out there to add a bit of polished flair to any outfit. Whether a formal occasion, a date, or just a day out and about, a bowtie done correctly is a great way to pull your look together in a way that’s sure to get you noticed. Take note from a few stylish men below and the way they rock their bowties…

These men almost always look phenomenal in their head turning styles. I won’t go as far as to attribute all their success to bowties, but I will say it seems they aren’t foolish enough to leave this tool out of their fashion arsenals. Be inspired by how these stylish celebs style their bowties and tweak it for a bowtie swag thats all your own. There are many styles and shapes of bowties, just shop around and let the bowtie itself inspire you. Get creative, have fun, and look sharp!

Until Next Time

Oh my Ombre’ !

Ombre’ is an artistic term defined as a color shaded or graduated in tone. The color gradients can move to dark to light or light to dark. We are seeing a lot of this trend in fashion these days, some of it in clothing, but mostly in hair. Many fashionable celebs have been rocking this sun-kissed hair-trend from Khloe Kardashian to Rachel Bilson. This is a trend I personally cannot wait to try myself, though I wouldn’t dare bleach the ends of my real hair. Next time I install extensions I will have a little DIY project on my hands! I plan to use the videos below as a guide to do my own ombre’ do.

Join me in the ombre’ adventure and let me know how it goes! if you’ve already done ombre’ show me pics of how it turned out and let me know your tips for achieving sun-kissed locks.
