The Vogue Verdict On Spring Fashion!

Hey guys!

Came up on a very nice article by Vogue on the hottest spring trends so I thought I would summarize a bit! The theme seems to be “edgy elegance”

Natural Skin

Natural, dewy skin is always in style. But this season keep your coverage to a minimum by taking care of your skin and letting it shine through all that makeup! Keep your skin healthy through proper hydration and of course nothing is better than a good diet and occasional exercise.

Undone Hair

One of my personal favourites: Easy, breezy, wind swept, low maintenance hair was seen on the likes of Chanel, Christian Dior and Chloe models.  Air-dried, undone waves are all you need. But make sure to keep your hair looking healthy with proper conditioning and occasional trimming.

Polished Ponytails & Slick back Hair

“Slick and glossy at Alexander Wang, scraped back low against the nape of the neck at Gucci, and softly crimped at Stella McCartney: Thanks to a quick play on texture, the classic ponytail managed to surprise and subvert on runways from New York to Paris.” (Vogue Beauty Guide)

Braids

pretty self explanatory I might add

LOVE the combination of two trends: A sleek ponytail with strong liner

Make a Statement:

Whether it be an edgy cut or jut a pop of glitter on the eyelids, bold liner or hair accessories it’s all about making a statement!

Decorative Hairpieces 

Fasten your hair or just add some chic glam to your undone hair by adding hair accessories seen from designers such as Céline, Lanvin, Valentino, or even fresh floral blooms from Dolce & Gabbana

Pretty Pouts!

“Spring’s painterly strokes of color ranged from the quietly understated to the high-impact” (Vogue Beauty Guide)

collections-beauty-guide-bold-lip-topshop-unique-rtw-ss-2015collections-beauty-guide-bold-lip-zac-posen-rtw-ss2015

Rich, supersaturated but still soft around the edges, almost as though been pressed on with a fingertip and stained, pops of colour – Pink lips are big!

Graphic Eyeliner 

From the runways of the likes of Prada and Louis Vuitton keep the drama for your liner! Whether you wear it straight or blended just wear it BOLD!

Fashion isn’t meant to be taken seriously! Remember to always have fun with it and pick and choose things that you feel comfortable with and that fit in with your own personal style!

Happy Easter!!

Cheers 🙂

Yellow Fever – 2015 Spring Trend Alert!

Hey guys, I wanted to start off a new series for spring. The theme will be how to “spring into spring!”

Let’s start with one of the hottest spring 2015 trends: YELLOW!

Yes yellow! Sometimes quite intimidating to pull off but you need not bathe yourself in it to be trendy.

Plus there are a TON of different shades of yellow. So there is something to suit everyone!

I personally love blazers and outerwear! They can make your outfit look put together instantly.

But if you are not looking to invest too much on a trendy colour, opt for some accessories instead. This is also a great way to wet your feet in current trends without breaking the bank.

Especially because not everyone has the means to finance a whole new wardrobe every season. You really don’t need to spend a lot to feel updated. 2015-spring-font-b-seris-b-font-designer-font-b-small-b-font-woman-tote-bag6-Colors-2015-Arrive-womens-flats-Spring-sapatilhas-femininas-casual-PU-leather-flat-shoes-For-womenA few accessories here and there can make you feel anew and refreshed for the spring time and will most likely carry you into the summer as well.

The cheapest and easiest way to add yellow: nails!

the-body-shop-color-crush-nail-polish-review-swatches-spring-2015-smoky-poppy-a-sunny-affairSONY DSCWays to wear yellow: White and yellow are classic together.

topshop-unique-spring-2015-ready-to-wear-23J-Crew-Ready-to-Wear-Screen-Shot-2015-02-25-at-12.48.59-PMYou can also combine yellow with a bold print or for a muted look with black and white prints. Solid pants will also do for a much more toned down look.

How to accessorize yellow:  I love metallics with yellow. Metallic shoes or metallic bag or even belts are a great way to accessorize yellow.

With jewellery you can go two ways: If you want to keep it simple then go with gold or silver.

For the more adventurous try blue with yellow! I love cobalt blue or even turquoise paired with yellow.

Red lips especially look good with a more mustard yellow. With baby yellow you can carry off hot pink.

There are no hard and fast rules as to what you should and shouldn’t wear.

I always opt for style that will keep me comfortable. The point is to have fun with it!

Cheers! 🙂
