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?

OFF THE SHOULDER

This trend is one of my favorites. Who doesn’t enjoy an exposed collarbone and shoulder? This is a very feminine and playful look that can easily be transitioned to the fall season.

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.

ROMPERS FOR MEN OTHERWISE KNOWN AS “ROMPHIM”

romphim-700x350.jpgHow do we feel about this latest ‘trend’ that just popped up all over social media last week…….

1. FYI, this isn’t a new trend! Men have been wearing jumpsuits/ all-in-ones, for some time now. Not sure why people were acting as such.

2. I’m all for this look! I do believe that it takes a certain type of man to rock this look. A man with style and pizzazz.

3. I understand the reasoning behind people thinking this is too “feminine” for a man to be wearing or in general it is ‘childish’. To me, there isn’t anything wrong with men wearing rompers. If you want to rock it try it out….and like Jay-Z said: “It ain’t for everybody.”

4.   For the homophobic out there, REALITY CHECK most gay men have created some of the best trends/garments that many of us love to run to the stores and stand in line for. This term “RomperHIM” needs not to be a term…….”Romper” is simple enough.

Closing Statment: I much rather see this on the streets than this…..

THIS👍🏾                         THAN                            THIS👎🏾
