SUMMER TRENDS 2017

Summer is finally here and it’s HOT AF. Below are a few of my favorite trendy pieces that can be wore from season to season. From the runways to A-list celebrities then right into our closets, fashion lovers can’t get enough of these popular trends. My favorite trends for the season are off the shoulder silhouettes, anything gingham, wrap dresses, sliders, and of course the dramatic exaggerated sleeve.

EXAGGERATED SLEEVE

Exaggerated over the top sleeves are a must have this season. Extra wide, ruffled, or extremely long sleeves gives any outfit a fashionable vibe. Whom would have thought that covering up some skin could be so sexy?

THE​ REAPPEARANCE OF SPORTSWEAR BRANDS

CHAMPION, NIKE, & ADIDAS are some of the popular sportswear brands that I’ve been seeing all over my newsfeeds. Do Y’all know that track pants are now acceptable in the workplace? Yup, it is, with the proper styling of course. The sudden appearance of oversized hoodies, track pants, sports bra and logo tops is a little overwhelming to me. Sportswear brands have been in heavy circulation since the 90’s, and as we know, history has a way of repeating its self.

Entertainers & Designers have collaborated with many popular sports brands which created an immense amount of popularity throughout the years. Take Rihanna’s collections with Puma. The Fenty collection by Rihanna has elevated the brand in a phenomenal way. I know theres a few critics out there that didn’t care for Puma before the “Creeper,” were created. Let’s not forget what Kanye West did for Adidas with his Yeezy collections. Still can’t get my hands on a pair of Yeezy sneakers.

Track Pants Craze

Since when could you rock track pants to your corporate job??? Well now it’s totally okay! This street driven fashion trend is taking runways by storm. Comfort & style normally doesn’t always go hand & hand but when it happens it’s marvelous! Known as a gym must have, track pants have been around for decades, only change is the cut & styling. Every fashion house is creating track pants, and we the people are going head over heels for them. High end brands such as Gucci, Givenchy, 3.1 Philllip Lim & Chole have some great tracks pants out. So much to love about this old school classic gym style, turned into a cultivated trouser. How would you rock them? Stay tune for more post of this trend.



2016 Trends

WHOA! Time really comes and pass just like that. 2016 is coming to an end and we’ve seen many fashionable trends. We seen lots of embroidery on denim, off the shoulder silhouettes perplex boots, Gucci logos everywhere, and the pajama street-wear craze. The real question is which trends will reoccur next year and what should stay in 2016? I vote those clear boots should stay in 201 6, those where one of the biggest trend that I loath. I can just imagine how sweaty your leg will be in those boots ! Below are some trends that I loved and hated this year.

Gucci, Gucci & more Gucci. Creative director Alessandro Michele sure did some amazing work this year by revamping the brand. Everyone and I mean everyone was seen rocking embroidered denim jeans and jackets by Gucci.

Next up is the infamous sexy lingerie trend. I would say Kim K is the leader of this trend, she was seen everywhere from the Givenchy fashion show in Paris to the corner store. Okay maybe not the corner store but you get my point. You name it she was somewhere causing a scene. I love this sexy look, I definitely want to see this in 2017.

The trend I hated the most was these clear perspex boots!!!!!!!!!!!!! Kim Kardashian made me hate these even more….The booties are okay but the boots……..how does it feel to have your sweat trickling down to your calf?

 

One of my favorite trends was the off the shoulder look. I love the elegance that this silhouette gave every outfit. You can be rocking sneakers and still look like a Princess.  Only issue I had is when I had to raise up…..but how offered do we really need to go through that.

Rihanna Killed every off the shoulder look!!!! This is really My Bish!!!!!!!!!! Style Innovator!  Definitely want to see this trend in 2017.

Who doesn’t like a fashionable comfy look, I’ll take sweats over a tight dress any day. Love this look especially with heels!

Patches were very trendy this year. They were seen on shirts, bags, jackets You Name It *Shirley Cease voice* I love this trend! You can find some cool patches and DIY your favorite items. 

Fashion Nova

Everyone & I mean EVERYONE loves Fashion Nova. What’s not to love about to trendy fast fashion brand. With ambassadors like Blac Chyna, Amber Rose, Cardi B, India Love & many other notable celebs, of  course I’m going to shop there too. Both Nikki Baby & Teyana Taylor rocked this fiji cover up by Fashion Nova, retailing for only $37.99. Who do you think rocked it best?
