Frayed Hem Jeans Trend

  You must have seen the frayed hem jeans trend before now especially on the popular street style babes. Everyday i open my Pinterest feed, there’s always a diy infographic on the frayed hem jeans trend or a street style photo of a pair of frayed hem jeans.   Frayed hem shorts have been popular especially during summer holidays but now the frayed hem trend has been taken over by trousers and other clothing items. Two of the most repinned and liked images on pinterest are these ones below featuring cropped frayed hem jeans and the popular Gucci Peyton midi heels and the Gucci …

The Circle Bag Trend

  The circle bag trend is the hottest bag trend of the year. Forget the saddle bags and the mini bag trend that I discussed on this blog previously, round shaped bags are the “It” bags of the season pushing those other bag trends all the way to the back seat. Although there are quite a number of half circle bags gaining popularity too like this bohemian half-circle “ark” bag, this post is focused on the full circle-shaped handbags like the popular Mansur Gavriel circle bags.   For some months, I kept seeing a lot of circle bags on Instagram especially on top …

What Your Fall Outfits Are Missing: Velvet Shoes

  It’s officially the first day of Fall/Autumn and this season’s fall outfits won’t be complete without Velvet shoes. The Velvet trend has manifested in different forms this year but Velvet shoes remain the most popular amongst fashion lovers.   From Velvet slingback sandals, Velvet sneakers to Velvet thigh high boots, we’ve seen them all especially during Autumn/Fall 2015 and 2016 fashion weeks.    I like that there are different styles to choose from even though there seems to be a lot of Velvet ankle boots. For those of us currently living in the tropics, we can opt for Velvet …

Sleeves Have Trends Too! Fluted Sleeve Tops aka Bell Sleeve Tops

  Fluted sleeve tops a.k.a Bell sleeve tops are the latest going-out tops: dramatic, fun and perfect for making a fashion statement. These structured tops were initially mentioned briefly in my post on Ways To Spice Up Your All Black Outfits as one of the ways to switch up an all black outfit.   Though there are slight variations in structure and style: from ribbed knits with thick belled cuffs, clean lines of a flared sleeve, ruffles and cascading shapes; these tops definitely make a statement however they are worn.   Fluted sleeve tops can be called bell sleeve tops or flare sleeves …

A lot of celebrities, fashionistas, style influencers and streetstylers have rocked the pyjamas fashion trend. Is this night wear trend worn outside the bedroom truly stylish or merely comfortable?   Just a few weeks ago we discussed 7 comfortable weekend outfit ideas for lazy girls on the blog.

Stoles – Will Get You Noticed But Keep You Warm

 When you hear stole, think of the well trimmed graduation scarf worn by graduates while receiving their diplomas! For the purpose of this post, forget that and lets talk about the women’s fashion aspect.   A stole is a long scarf or shawl, especially of fur or similar material, worn loosely over the shoulders. From my little research, a stole is typically narrower than a shawl and of simpler construction than a cape; being a length of a quality material wrapped and carried about the shoulders or arms.   Lighter materials like silk and chiffon are simply finished that is, cropped, hemmed and …

Saddle Bags – The It Bags For Fall

 Every now and then an It bag floods the fashion scene and becomes the number one item on every fashionista’s wish list, first it was the bucket bags then the fancy leather backpacks and now the cross body saddle bags. These saddle bags got really obvious when the Chloe drew bags were seen on lots of fashionista’s shoulders. One would think these bags are affordable because of their popularity among bloggers, well think again!  The good thing is, almost every high street brand now stock similar styled versions so, if you are obsessed with the drew bags but can’t and/or …

Pom Pom Shoe Trend

  One thing about fashion weeks each year is that they always bring certain fashion trends to the limelight especially tricky ones like the pom pom shoe trend or the culottes trend or any other trend the cool kids are wearing these days.  When a certain trend surfaces on the runways, we see them on a couple of fashion A-listers, bloggers, street stylers, then the obsession begins and continues for months till the next big trend knocks it off the top spot. I’ve been seeing fashionistas add pom poms to their outfits in form of accessories, some looking a bit over …

  If you paid close attention to Aw14 fashion trends, then you would have first spotted blanket scarves otherwise known as the blanket stitch cape trend at the Burberry autumn/winter 2014 catwalk show on a selection of models led by Cara Delevingne. These blanket scarves and capes are wrap stars! – Vogue’s catwalk edit and i couldn’t agree more.   This trend would be needed more during autumn/winter season.
