This year’s hot fall trend is none other than the moto leggings. They are cool, edgy, and add some spice to that autumn wardrobe. I recently bought a pair of Spanx moto leggings, but haven’t found just the right thing to wear them with yet. I know others are facing trouble too so I thought I could share some of my favorite outfits.
1. Layer Layer Layer
No surprise that this fall staple is best worn with layers. Adding different cuts, lengths, and styles helps keep you warm and keep you stylish.
2. All Black + Pop of White
We all know that black goes with everything, but an outfit can be so boring without a little pop of color. To keep these leggings looking sleek and simple, add a white tee or blouse underneath a black jacket.
3. Dress It Down
Some leggings can be a little flashy for running errands or lounging around the house. Pair them with white sneakers and a jean jacket to dress them down for that #modeloffduty look.
5. Glammed Out
Don’t be afraid to show these leggings off- nothing is more glam than leather leggings and a pair of heels. Try it out next Saturday for a night out with the girls where you’ll look cool and stay comfy.
This summer trend too hot to escape? The classic overall. Although this throwback trend has bounced back for the last few seasons, I expected it to fade like the old denim its made of. To my surprise, it has seemed to grow rapidly– everywhere I turn there is a pair of overalls. I can’t help but envy the bold and creative outfits featuring edgy rips, corduroy fabrics, delicate embroidery, and playful shorts that I seem to find everywhere I go. These are the most stylish and rebellious ways to wear overalls in summer ’17.
1. The Classic Tee
Sometimes the simplest pieces look the most chic, and with a statement piece like washed denim overalls a clean black t-shirt is all you need.
2. Vintage Throwback
As we all probably noticed by now, the 70’s hues and prints are the hottest decade trend at the moment. Don’t be afraid to get a little groovy by layering a chunky sweater under some brown corduroy pant overalls.
3. Sexy Sheer
Glam up a pair of ripped overalls with a tight sheer shirt and a cute bralette.
4. Chic & Cozy
Throwing a light cardigan and fun jewelry always adds a level of chicness to your that will also keep you warm transitioning into fall.
5. Off the Shoulder Show-Off
Cool off long panted overalls with another hot trend- off the shoulder tops.
6. Boho Bliss
Add a loose button-up and tousled waves to give your outfit a relaxed and unique twist. You’ll make getting dressed in the morning look like a breeze.
The red carpet is always about sparkle and shine, but this year’s actresses brought it to a new level. Many appeared in head-to-toe shades of golds and silvers knowing just how to turn heads in the spotlight.
Open Chest Dress
A huge trend we have been seeing on the award show red carpet for years has been the plunging neckline. Each year celebrities have been a little more bold with this trend, but this might be the year for the farthest they can go.
Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake
With spring just around the corner, these celebrities have paved the way with pretty pastels and delicate appliqué details and a touch of drama. Some key elements of the trend are light and sheer fabrics, tight busts, and a long silhouette. Get ready for some spring flowers, because this trend has just bloomed.
Bold & Bright
Celebrities are always looking for ways to be inventive on the red carpet, and this year we saw some simple fabrics with bright colors that packed a bunch. Out with the classic reds and in with the hot pinks and vivid yellows.
Several stars appeared on the red carpet with gowns that made a big (and poofy) statement. This trend plays on the traditional ball gown but with an exciting modern twist, such as a high-low cut like Janelle Monae or a deep neckline like Zendaya.
For the 2016 Color of the Year, Pantone experts chose two colors that they felt truly represent the spirit of the times. Rose Quarts and Serenity- a dreamy duo seen throughout photography and fashion which has set new standards for modern art. Just as the pieces we see, these colors are simple yet hold a strong message behind them.
“In many parts of the world we are experiencing a gender blur as it relates to fashion, which has in turn impacted color trends throughout all other areas of design,” Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, stated in this year’s press release.
To summarize this year’s shining moments in the design world, here is a color mood board I have collected. What do you think- were these the right colors to choose for this year?
This year’s daring trend- open shirts revealing lacey details and flashing some skin. Scandalous, edgy, or a social statement? The choice is yours, but whatever you decide you can’t deny its catching on fast. My favorite way to wear this look is a low cut v-neck with a peek of a cute lacey black bra. Bras aren’t cheap, so why not show it off?
Although the trend seems new to this generation, lingerie made its break in the fashion world back in the 80’s. Starting with glam icons like Madonna, then moving through the decade to Gwen Stefani, and landing with Rihanna in 2007.
