Tag Archives: Fall
Now that fall is almost over, you are seeing what is trending in fashion for the colder weather. Celebrities have access to all the “hot” new fashion and you will see them wearing both well known autumn designers, as well as those who are new on the fashion scene.
This particular “trio” of celebrity men all have their own styles, but you can see certain trends in their looks. Rapper Kanye West is sporting more of the slouchy, casual chic style with his rolled-up waist olive sweatshirt, black trousers that are distressed at the knees, taupe/grey lace-up suede boots, and a complimentary long overcoat to pull it all together. Soccer superstar David Beckham is posing for a photo op with his new book in a very fashionable minimalist look. David’s simple black, long-sleeve t-shirt, his skinny grey distressed jeans, and grey leather boots make him look put together, without any frills. Last, but not least is Pop singer Harry Styles from the boy-band One Direction. Harry is definitely living up to his name with his dark teal suede trench coat with the shoulder epaulets and double-breasted closure. The trench is a coat that never goes out of style, and with this great teal suede fabric it brings it into 2015. Harry keeps the rest of his outfit simple with his monochromatic look of a dark shirt, slim dark pants, and black leather boots, which also lets the trench coat be the center of attention.
For the ladies, actress and singer Laura Marano is combining the worded graphic t-shirt with the new version of the jean jacket that has the same body, but adds sleeves done in a fabulous fleecy plaid fabric for a modern twist. Laura is also sporting the shredded jean look and finishes off the look with a pair of mid-calf black suede boots.
Fashion icon and former “Spice Girl” Victoria Beckham is the polar opposite of husband David is her grey plaid overcoat with hints of red, white button-down blouse, and neon red creased trousers. I am curious what Victoria is wearing for shoes and how she can possibly manage not to trip over the length of her pants.
For women's fashion.
With Fashion Week kicking off in New York City, it is time to consider what the most popular fashion trends for women in 2014 will be. This is an exciting time of year for many women. Whether the trends are experimental, retro, or bold, the possibilities are positively thrilling.
What’s hot and what’s not in 2014
Every year, the fashion season brings forth a new decade from which it draws inspiration. In 2014, that decade happens to be the 1960s. In fact, the 60s are back in a big way with miniskirts, knee-high boots, and clunky jewelry reminiscent of Edie Sedgwick and Twiggy. However, retro chic isn’t the only theme this season.
Just in time for the fall, knits are paving the way for fashionistas that want to look good and stay warm. Designers such as Stella McCartney and Marc Jacobs are going the distance with the sweater – it’s not just for your top half anymore. Look for sweater pants, skirts, and dresses in simple colors as well as intricate Fair Isle prints. Remember that this season, nothing is too big or too detailed. The extreme turtleneck is going to be what’s hot – say goodbye to tight-fitting turtlenecks this year.
Thought your little black dress would never go out of style? It probably won’t, but wearing dresses by themselves is a fading trend. Think dresses over pants for a more rugged look with just the right touch of femininity. If you want to look hot this season, go for your favorite pants and dress!
Saving money on the top trends
If you splurged every season on the latest styles and trends, you might quickly run out of money – especially if you think you’ve got to order straight off the runway. Don’t break the bank, especially on duds that might not be so hot next season. Instead of heading to the big retailers and department stores, why not consider discount chains?
Another great way to save big bucks on fashion is to check online. Sign up for newsletters and notifications from your favorite retailers, designers, and brands and you’ll find out about their secret sales, get coupons, and save on your next purchase. You can also look for online discount codes before checking out – you might be surprised at what you find and how much you can save.
Shopping out of season is also a good way to get great fashion accessories and clothing at a discount. Shop for spring and summer in the fall months, then look for your summer garb during the winter. Pay attention to Fashion Week previews and trends to get the most of your bargains on styles that will likely last more than one season.
Clothing, shoes and accessories aren’t the only trends to keep an eye out for this year. If you want to look good in your dazzling duds, you will need to watch your weight and stay as healthy as possible. Every year it seems that there are several fad diets that come out – so be careful! Often, these fads are just that – fads – and won’t do much for your weight loss efforts or stylish figure.
Stick to the tried-and-true diet tips such as eating a well-balanced diet, getting plenty of exercise and sleep – and drinking lots of water. You can also add herbal teas – Jasmine Tea in particular – to your daily routine. Herbal teas are rich in antioxidants, those nifty little compounds that fight the free radicals in your body to prevent certain types of cancer, heart disease, weight gain, and aging.
Wearing one color head to toe is a very flattering concept. You look taller and leaner, streamlining your appearance. So how can you take one color dressing from blasé to chic? Follow our do’s and don’ts and you can’t go wrong!
Do introduce another color with fun and interesting accessories to add a touch of pizzaz. Try a fun statement bag or an interesting pair of shoes. This is a great time to focus on the details, as the single color will act as a great canvas to really make them stand out!
Don’t introduce a whole rainbow of colors in your accessories. Not only does that take away from the monochromatic concept, it also takes away from you!
Do play with different shades. No reason to go too matchy-matchy, play up light and dark shades in the same family. Try jewel tones and pastels or rich and soft neutrals.
Don’t get colors that are close together but not exact. While you can wear head to toe in the exact same shade and look like you stepped out of a magazine, you can’t really achieve that effect with colors that look similar but aren’t the same. It just gives the impression that you tried too hard to make it work, but probably didn’t. Think of a suit you bought separately- while the pants may be navy and the jacket might also be navy, each designer plays with a slightly different shade so pairing two different pieces together isn’t a great idea.
Do concentrate on fit. The slimming concept is lost if your garments are ill-fitting. We’re not suggesting it needs to be tight, just that fit you perfectly.
Don’t worry so much about what everyone else is wearing, wear what looks good on you!
Having a bun in the oven doesn’t mean you need to compromise on style. We show you how to wear fall’s hottest trends.
Black and White
In the fall we love long sleeved dresses and this Long Sleeve Wrap Maternity Dress from apeainthepod.com is just what the doctor ordered. It’s high-low seems show off a little leg while showcasing fall’s fun black and white trend. Pair it with a leather jacket and you’re ready for a night on the town.
For women's fashion.
There is nothing more in now than leather, sorry vegans (there’s always faux!). Leather purses, leather boots, leather jackets, etc etc.
Don’t pack up your warm weather wardrobe just yet. Adding leather allows you to wear your favorite spring looks right into autumn. Toughen up a sweet summer dress with a leather jacket like this Michael Kors snap-tab collar jacket. Or add some knee-high boots and a structured blazer to your favorite cotton dress for instant fall glamour.
Now that my last runway article highlighted some of the unique and obscure designer looks, it is only fair that I also discuss the tamer, more wearable looks for Fall 2013. One of the items that is trending big this year in men’s fashion is the “overcoat”. Created from such luxurious fabrics as Merino Wool and Cashmere, overcoats can be a fashionably versatile piece to add to your Fall/Winter wardrobe. Given these choices of fabric, expect upcoming coats to be quite expensive – using a basic bank account, which typically doesn’t include an overdraft option, isn’t the best way to go.
