High-Low Hemlines: In or Out?

High-Low hemlines are popping up everywhere! Tanks, skirts, and dresses are incorporating this style in  many silhouettes .

Tops: High-low tops are easy to pair with a simple pair of jeans, or leggings. Remember the top itself is a statement, so try not to overbear it with loads of jewelry. Contrasting the top with a bright or a dark bottom will be sure to enhance your asymmetrical style.

Skirts: High-low skirts are a great way to show a little leg. This trend works on ALL body types, for instance for petite women, this style can elongate your frame, and for curvy girls, colors and different cuts of the skirt can highlight and flatter you in the right places.

The Ombre Effect

Spring is here, and Summer is just around the corner!

Bright colors ranging from pastels to neons seem to be sweeping the nation, not just by color blocking though. But by the Ombré effect that is. What is ombré?  Ombré is a dye technique in which articles of clothing are suspended  or dipped a pool of dye, allowing the color to slowly make its way up into the fabric.  The result is a soft, natural look with hues fading from dark to light… and a great way to add some gorgeous color to your wardrobe.

Here are some great examples:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Don’t be afraid to mix dark and light colors to your ombré effect! Adding some pretty chic studs or spikes would be the perfect finishing touch.

 

 

Kanye West to Move to the UK to Focus on Fashion Career?

Rumor has it, rapper, Kanye West is planning on moving to London, England to concentrate on his fashion career. If you didn’t know, Kanye has released a clothing line called DW*. He made his collection debut at Paris Fashion Week earlier this year.

* West named his line DW after his late mother Donda West.

Apparently Kanye held a party in the UK for his line just before he returned back to the states for Christmas. A source tells the UK tabloid, The Sun “He’s close to the lecturers and students at the Central Saint Martins College and being in London means he can stop by for advice any time … He’ll be over here preparing his Paris Fashion Week show, due in March. He’s also been looking for a studio.”

If these rumors turn out to be true, would we be seeing a lot more of Kanye the designer than Kanye the rapper?

New York Fashion Week: New Trends

This year’s fashion week seemed more popular than compared to the years before. There was so much hype and excitement in the air that it caused NYC to get plagued with a bomb threat! But that didn’t stop the shows from going on.

There were a few styles that caught my eye this season.

1. Seafoam! I started to obsess over this color this summer and there was a reason why. This year’s Spring/Summer shows oozed seafoam shades. Whether it was a seafoam accent, print, or used as a contrast it was somehow worked into the garments of many designers such as Rachel Comey, Diane von Furstenberg, Richard Chai and many more.

2. High-waisted shorts another one of my summer obsession brought to the catwalk. Silk, printed, spandex or solid shorts are something that you all will see alot of next summer.

3. Peplum tops- didn’t see this coming. Peplum is a short gathered, flared, or pleated fabric attached to the end of a womans garments: dresses, tops, jackets, etc. A great influence from the 40s.

Those are my top 3 trend watches for Spring/Summer ’12. What do you think? Would you be sporting any of these looks next summer?
