Get the Look: Overalls

Overalls are one of my favorite street style trends for spring!
… But they can be tricky to pull off.  I suggest opting for a darker wash if you’re feeling a little unsure about the trend.  Pairing overalls with a classic stripe is an easy way to incorporate them into your wardrobe.  I chose to offset the classic stripes with pops of neon and a trendy stacked heel.  River Island has an amazing selection of these fun jeweled statement clutches!

A Toast To: The Guys of NYFW

This one’s for the guys!

So often we focus on the women’s street wear trends for fashion week instead of giving some of the world’s most fashionable men some credit.  I’ve compiled my favorite street style looks from New York Fashion Week Fall 2014.  Enjoy!

A (huge) Toast to: Miroslava Duma

I cannot get enough of Mira Duma’s style!!!!

Mira Duma

Every time her photo pops up on my Pinterest or in the fashion coverage of WWD, Vogue, and Harper’s Bazaar, I can’t help but to go crazy over her personal style.  The creativity and innovation that she puts into her outfits is rivaled by none.  She ceaselessly comes up with bold ideas that quickly turn into trends all over the world.

Mira Duma is the daughter of a Russian senator, previous editor for Russian Harper’s Bazaar,  and founder of Buro 24/7.  She is a spokeswoman for Chime for Change, a charity by Gucci that promotes education, heath, and justice for women everywhere.

Duma is also the founder of her own charity, Peace Planet, which focuses on culture and education through the organization of exhibitions, conferences, theatrical performances, opera performances, artistic activities, as well as through literary works and performing arts.

A Toast to the “It Bag” of Paris Couture Week

Spring 2014 Paris Couture Fashion Week is in full swing!

The Parisian couture shows can only be described as an impeccable showing of wearable art; however, they aren’t always the main attraction. My favorite part of the week isn’t what is on the runway, but what street-style photographers capture through their lenses on the world’s most fashionable women.

Although the week hasn’t ended yet, a definite favorite has been declared among fashion innovators. “It Bag” of Paris Couture Week: Chanel No. 5 perfume bottle-shaped evening bag.

The bag is reminiscent of styles once featured in Sex and the City, and comes in clear or black. It is a whimsical piece that adds a little playfulness to any look, no matter how chic. The bag has been seen on other celebrities including Alexa Chung, Miroslava Duma, and Rihanna.

One Trend from 2013 to Wear in 2014: Winter White

Monochromatic outfits have been trending all over the Street Style and Fashion Blogger scenes.  Wearing head to toe white, black, or denim has been one of my favorite trends of the season, which I’m sure will carry on into the Spring of 2014.

Head-to-toe monochromatic Winter White has been one of the most difficult trends from 2013 for people to incorporate into their every-day looks… Especially given the fact that old-fashioned rules have told us that white is not acceptable to wear after Labor Day.  Now more than ever is the time to break the rules, step out of your comfort zone,  and try wearing Winter White.

With Spring quickly approaching the trend will start to catch on within the general population, as it will seem more acceptable to break out the white pants.  The best way to dip into the trend is to wear different shades of cream throughout your outfit or to offset your winter white with a black accent.  This is a fool-proof way to incorporate the trend into your wardrobe without going all bright white.

If you’re feeling brave and want to try the all bright white look, as always, make sure your look is tailored, crisp, and proportional to your body.  Ill-fitting clothing is the quickest way for this trend to be a flop.

Take a look at these great examples of how to wear Winter White for some inspiration on how to put it all together!
