Neutrals 2

As fahionista’s, we’re always searching for the new, hottest trends that are grazing fashion covers and blog sites everywhere. We won’t get caught dead wearing white after Labor Day or peep-toe pumps in winter. But what about the classic trends like pastels and florals that seem to be missed? Or my all-time favorite—neutrals! These are almost always the perfect go-to for a trendy night out, depending on the season.

Personally, I wear neutrals year-long because it grants such a luxe and simple look. Not to mention the fact that you can rock these swatches any season—day or night. But it can be difficult to remain neutral in such a bold world where everyone is fighting to stand out.  I am here to tell you, you can still own a room in your chic shades!

The greatest thing about neutral colors is they all pair very nicely together. I usually like to mix and match the warmer colors like tan and camel with the off-whites and cream colors. With camel being such a big color this season, you can almost find it in every variation. You usually can get a little cray with your lip color or opt for a printed neutral bag to bring a new flare to your neutrals. Trust me, you’ll never have a dull moment again! Here’s a little outfit inspiration for your next night out.

It’s a new year, which means it’s time for a new you (whatever that really means)! In addition to making over your closet and beauty repertoire, you might want to think about revamping your abode.

Now don’t get us wrong; we do love a good damask print every now and then, and openly coo for beautiful crystal chandeliers, but 2015 seems to be about loving all things black white with minimalist and sleek influences. Therefore, instead of glamming up your decor via an abundance of girlish touches, try paring things down and opting for a more modern-chic aesthetic.

Need some help getting started? Well, after gawking at the above image from CB2′s latest catalog, swap floral patterns for anything Mojave-inspired. And then trade Lucite and crystal for metal and wood. Finally, top it all off with sophisticated artsy tomes and ceramic trinkets. Think less boudoir and more study, and you’ll be there in no time. Plus, check out the key pieces we’ve suggested for you and don’t forget to have some fun! Happy decorating.

I’m not a denim expert; more like a denim hoarder, really. It’s kind of a problem. I just can’t toss away a pair of jeans because they aren’t ‘cool’—they aren’t like middle school friends…kidding! I’m just saying: I know my bleached-out, Marky Mark mega-pipes from 8th grade are going to make a comeback, and when they do, I’ll be ready.

 

Until that happens, let’s focus on current denim, modern washes, and, more importantly, what your choices say about you, now.

 

Deconstructed: Ok, it’s not really a wash, but when the ravaged sections aren’t a hue of blue, it counts. You’re a hot mess…emphasis on ‘hot’. You don’t give a fuss, yet your look is always fashionably put-together. Check out Shay.

 

Ombre: From one color to the next, you love a good transition or–better yet—transformation. That’s ok. Some might say, “all over the place”; others will say, “Life of the party.” Change into Meagan.

 

Color Blast: Usually you have a bright and endearing personality, but you need to go a little dark now and then. This treatment is primed for your shady/chic looks. Try on Carsen for the night.

 

Acid Wash: You know your stuff…is vintage—but that’s why you love it. Combined with pieces you bought at the mall yesterday, your acidic look, like you, is incomparably original.

 

White: Outwardly, you’re all dainty, but the truth is that you’re ready to rumble—not tumble, though, because you don’t want to get THAT dirty.

 

Richy T. – …owns all of these washes.

When the cooler months come upon us, it’s hard to part with summer basics. I find this to be especially true when it comes to footwear; and if you’re familiar with Southern California you know we love our sandals rain or shine. Although I’m personally wont to trade my slip-ons in for something a bit cozier when the weather gets crisp, I’m willing to add an extra layer for the sake of fashion. Luckily, sandals are sticking around with furry, sporty, and printed elements. If you can’t get your hands on that coveted furry sandal pictured above, try the sandal and sock combination. Whether you rock a heel or flat you’re going to get the best of the comfortable chic tomboy look and I’m not sure if it gets any better than that.

Bare shoulders made an appearance on streets around the globe during fashion week and I have to say I don’t mind this trend at all. The demure reveal highlights delicate collarbones while providing the perfect skin to fabric ratio for subtle sex appeal.  I particularly love the look on Australian rapper Iggy Azalea. Her Viktor Ralph dress actually forgoes exposed skin, but the contrast of the sheer and opaque  fabric work together to create the same effect. I can’t wait to test this trend out, after all I think my shoulders deserve some spotlight.

Full Skirt

Full skirts are on my radar. The genteel vibe that accompanies them brings a much needed feminine mystique to my closet full of minis and pencil skirts. Although they are known for their connection to the 50’s; they are quite versatile and are not limited to the girlish ensembles that were worn years ago. Full skirts look great with a modern edge, specifically menswear. A tailored blazer, letterman jacket, or sweatshirt adds necessary roughness without diminishing the ladylike panache of a low hemline.
