Style 180: The Boyfriend Trend

Your boyfriend’s closet has had its 15 minutes… now it’s time to get some of your own stuff.

For a few seasons now, trend reports have encouraged “boyfriend” pieces in the form of jeans, shirts, watches and other incredibly comfortable items. At first it was an adorable ode to the boys we adore. But at some point we lost sight of this goal and became addicted to the allure of loose fitting clothing and it’s uncanny ability to hide our Sunday brunch.

Let this serve as our long-awaited wakeup call. Return the ginormous watch your boyfriend gave you when you started going steady and embrace the femininity that made him fall for you in the first place with mini watches and dainty jewelry.

Apart from Kanye’s leather jogging pants, designers aren’t making unflattering, baggy leather pieces for a reason. This fall, tap into your inner vixen and jump on the leather bandwagon. There’s no reason to spend your annual paycheck on a pair of pants, so get the same eye-catching effect with these leather-coated jeans:

If you can’t possibly part with the comfort of loose fitting clothing, take advantage of this season’s comfy crush: the cowl neck sweater. Chunky knits should be a staple in your fall wardrobe, but avoid looking like a member of a Scandinavian fishing village by pairing your cozy sweater with striking skinny jeans and statement boots.

July Obsessions.

 

July Obsessions

Overwhelming patriotism, fireworks and countless BBQs are just a few reasons why I love July summer nights.

Obviously when I think of July, I think of independence and fireworks (cue Katy Perry) – so here’s a few ways to show your love for the invention that got you in trouble with the homeowners’ association year after year!

1. Firecracker flower arrangements

2. Patriotic Blue accessories with gold accents

3. Firework inspired ombre and patterned dresses

What’s on your summer hot list for July?!

You Fancy, eh?

Ever feel like you’re neglecting your bottom half and rubbing it in it’s (um) face by wearing fun, eye-catching prints on top? Ok, maybe not. But whether or not you’ve realized it, you probably haven’t been giving your bottoms the same, spring print love you’ve showed your tops.

Let’s fix that with some Fancy Pants!

Monochrome.

Monochrome

One of the trends being thrown around like a hot potato this spring/summer is monochrome. While the definition of monochrome is pretty black and white [pun totally intended], actually wearing pieces on opposing sides of the grey scale can be super modern without having to actually try that hard.

Keep your outfit simple with a majority of either black or white and class it up with a pair of YSL ankle strap pumps. I love dressing up silky shorts for going out with a pair of heels and this pair by Prabal Gurung is so beautiful it’s borderline insulting.

Opposites Attract

Sometimes, opposites do not attract. Think oil and vinegar. Democrats and Republicans. Extroverts and introverts

Lucky for us, this optimistic cliche applies when it comes to mixing otherwise unrelated prints and textures! Let’s call it…

Can You Hear the Bells…

It’s impossible to ignore the endlessly scrolling pages of Pinterest images depicting every single girl’s dream wedding. People are obsessed… and I’m not sure why. I won’t pretend that I don’t have a page of my own (but it may or may not be set to “private” so I don’t totally freak my boyfriend out).

Regardless, there are a myriad of emotions that revolve around wedding season. For those that are blessed (or stressed) enough to be throwing their own, attending one, or are just utterly enthralled with the institution of marriage, here are some ideas on wedding fashion…
