Heidi Klum Launches Swim Collection at Bloomingdales

by

A woman of many talents, it comes as no surprise that Heidi Klum is expanding her takeover in the design world as well. From supermodel to TV show host and everything in between, Klum is a leading lady in the fashion industry. Her new Heidi Klum Swim Collection is no different. The line features a wide variety of 48 styles and patterns, from bold prints to dainty lace for a more romantic look. The line is on the higher end, with tops going for $80-130 and swimsuit bottoms at $70-100.
 
One of Heidi Klum’s other well-known ventures is her role as host on Lifetime hit show Project Runway. Klum gave contestants the chance to compete to have their looks featured in the line and get their foot in the door as designers. Contestant Rik Villa won the challenge with his edgy geometric prints in a one piece suit and coverup. The bold prints and thigh-high slits in the coverup make it my personal favorite piece in the collection.   

In September, the Heidi Klum Swim photo shoot was released featuring none other than the supermodel herself – who better to debut her swimsuit line? The shoot drew attention to the upcoming line with the anticipation for its release.

On Wednesday, November 2, Klum hosted a cocktail party and shopping event at Bloomingdale’s in New York City to celebrate the launch of this first-ever collection. The launch also featured a VIP shopping event. Here, VIP clients were given the opportunity to meet Heidi Klum in person and be the first to shop the collection. As expected, the event was a major success, giving starstruck fans and shoppers the opportunity to meet the woman behind the cutting edge new swimsuit line.

Heidi Klum Swim is available at Bloomingdale’s stores nationwide, bloomingdales.com and HeidiKlumIntimates.com.

DIY Trends to Try This Season

by

This season, do-it-yourself (DIY) fashion has gone from a money-saving hobby to a high-fashion trend. Designers are emerging with collections that include DIY-inspired clothing made to look like fashionistas slaved away at home creating perfectly unique details on garments from denim jackets to pants and shoes. These embellishments include pop art patches and sparkling pins that make classic garments stand out. Check out some of the hottest DIY trends below!

 

Patchwork Pride

It comes as no surprise that the eclectic Alice+Olivia was one of the brands to popularize this trend in its ‘70s-inspired Fall 2016 Ready-to-Wear collection. Models stood tall in bell bottom jeans embroidered with bright designs in a patchwork style along the leg. This detailing was consistent throughout the collection, putting a quirky homemade spin on beautifully made garments.

For the naturally talented do-it-yourselfers, many designers also feature separate patches and pins to embellish garments at home with high-end details. Marc Jacobs recently promoted the DIY trend with #PatchMarc, a promo accompanied with an event hosted by Marc Jacobs and Nylon Magazine. Throughout the promotion, shoppers who bought a Marc Jacobs tee online received three patches for free. The #PatchMarc event was scattered with Marc Jacobs patches in designs such as MJ logos and Dorothy’s famous red slippers, channeling the fantasy world of The Wizard of Oz. These patches gave a high-fashion touch to DIY art.

Patchwork and embellishments aren’t the only two things setting off the pop art trend in fashion. London-based designer Anya Hindmarch is famous for her “sticker” handbags. The bags are famously created to look as though they are covered in pop art stickers, making simple bags stand out from other brands. Designers emulating a similar handbag style are Coach and Dolce & Gabbana. Coach’s Fall 2016 collection also featured sticker and patchwork style handbags, while D&G stayed true to its feminine look with sparkling jewel tone embellishments.             

All About Pop Style

The pop style trend may be featured on designer runways, but it is slowly making its way to the masses with DIY tutorials and a spot in larger chain stores. Get your own patches, pins, and stickers at Free People in true do-it-yourself fashion or buy pre-embellished pieces at stores such as ASOS and Etsy.

DIY pieces can go from trendy to tacky if not styled correctly. Be sure to choose just one embellished garment as a statement piece to pair with a simple outfit. Try patched jeans and jackets with a simple black or white tee, or even a LBD under an embellished jacket to wear out. The same goes for pop-inspired handbags. Opt for a simpler look without patterns to avoid visionary overload. Whether you choose to create these pieces at home or buy designer, the DIY style is one to adopt this fall.

These Trends Are Making A Comeback

by

Early 2000s trends have finally come full circle; we’ve fallen in love with them, cringed at the sight of them, and love them all over again! Fall 2016 runways were filled with jean skirts, shearling, and exposed lace and lingerie in perfect 2000s fashion. Designers modernized these trends by changing the silhouette and styling them for a new look. Denim skirts are largely made in A-line cuts and exposed lace is styled in a much more subtle and feminine way.

Celebrities like Selena Gomez and Hailey Baldwin have turned the jean skirt from a thing of the past to a chic wardrobe staple. Pair a jean skirt with over-the-knee boots in cooler months this fall or a strappy gladiator sandal as you transition out of the warmer summer months. The A-line cut of this new wave of jean skirts make them a trendier version of their 2000s counterparts. The A-line cut looks great with a crop top for a night out and can even be dressed down with a graphic tee for a more casual look. However you wear it, the denim skirt is a classic and versatile piece that belongs in every wardrobe.

Another throwback style taking the runways by storm is shearling. Burberry models sported exaggerated shearling trim on bomber jackets in the Fall/Winter 2016 runway shows. Shearling appeared on several other designer runways for the coming season, each designed with a different style. Chloé took an entirely new approach to this comeback trend with a shearling and leather pullover, a look that is sure to extend to the masses in no time. Upgrade old sweatshirts to a shearling outer layer for a luxe and comfortable look.

Exposed lace and lingerie are rising from the ashes of the Britney/Christina era classier than ever. For Love and Lemons offers high-quality bralettes and lace pieces that perfectly embody the romantic clothing style. A lace bralette works under virtually any garment, particularly shirts with a low neckline or exposed back for a taste of femininity with exposed lace.  For Love and Lemons also features dainty lingerie-inspired dresses that look best paired with a classic pump for a night out or ankle booties and a jacket for a daytime look. This season in particular, opt for black lace pieces inspired by Alexander McQueen, Dolce & Gabbana, and Valentino for a darker, more gothic look. Whether you’re sporting a lace dress, denim skirt, or shearling pullover, make your 2002-self proud this fall with these comeback trends.

Business Professional Fashion: Nailing Your New 9-5 Look

by

Starting a new job is nerve-racking for people of all ages, but it is especially difficult for a recent college grad entering “the real world.” It’s not easy trying to find ourselves in this realm after living in the sheltered little college bubble for the last 4+ years. We go from bumming it to class in the sweats we slept in to having to pull ourselves together for our first full-time jobs. As if this were not difficult enough, making a good first impression adds more pressure to the mix. We’re battling with wanting to stay youthful and fashionable while having to remain professional for the workplace. Follow these tips on business professional fashion: nailing your new 9-5 look.

The Straight Fit: This is the perfect middle ground between fitted and conservative. Whether it is with pants or dresses, a straight, slim fit in garments show off just a hint of your figure to avoid looking dowdy in a new suit or business casual look.

Patterns: Patterns are a great yet subtle way to add to an office look. Patterned blouses underneath a blazer feminize an outfit instantly. Brands like Joie and Vince Camuto feature girly, romantic patterns in conservative but fashionable styles. A pop of color is another great route to take to amp up the business casual fashion. J.Crew is famous for its neon details that add a fun touch to classic pieces. Try a skirt with neon trim or a brightly colored blouse beneath a neutral suit.

The Ankle Crop: This is a trend popular in denim and dress pants alike. Pants cropped at the ankle add an unexpected amount of youth to suits especially when paired with feminine heels. A popular look on runways, cropped slim pants with a simple ankle strap heel is the start to the ultimate business casual outfit.

Accessorize: If the dress code permits, statement jewelry is a great way to stand out among a sea of similar workwear attire each day. This is another staple at J.Crew and stores like Anthropologie. Adding a large sparkling necklace or earrings does wonders to a business look. A fun clutch or bag is another great way to accessorize your outfit!

The Best Festival Looks So Far

by

We all know festivals are about so much more than the legendary music performances.  The real entertainment is among the crowd, which turns out to be its own fashion show filled with crop top-clad celebrities and style gurus sashaying about in the world’s best Instagram sceneries.

Coachella, one of the country’s largest music festivals, kicks off the summer each year in late April. Its eclectic, psychedelic décor is a show of its own with decorations like a giant butterfly built perfectly in the middle of the crowd.  Following Coachella on the East Coast is the Governor’s Ball, a music festival that takes over New York City for a weekend in June.  While New Yorkers treat every day like a fashion show, this weekend brings in visitors from all over the country sporting their chicest crochet bikini tops and graphic tees.  Summer music festivals allow us to embody an entirely new persona for the night (or weekend) and take fashion risks that are only acceptable in the chic, ‘70s-inspired environment of these outdoor music shows.  So far, these celebs have showed us the best festival looks so far.

Kendall Jenner: Kendall is on her festival fashion A game each year from head to toe.  This year she successfully took a fashion risk sporting a lace bralette and finishing the look off with a hat and layered statement necklaces, her signature festival pieces.  Kendall’s bralette and high-waisted shorts statement is a trend to try at home this summer.

Alessandra Ambrosio: Alessandra put a classier twist on the crochet bikini top with a piece that resembled a dress with cutouts at Coachella. Pairing this with denim cutoffs, boots, and a fringe vest, she nailed the summer layering trend for a boho chic look.  On day two of the festival, Ambrosio rocked the flower crown, denim cutoffs and kimono combo, embodying the look of a typical festival goer — as “typical” as a beautiful, famous super model can be, that is.

Kylie Jenner: Making a statement like her older sister, this year Kylie continued her signature festival look in her wigs, one made up of rainbow hues to go along with her Discount Universe evil eye bikini.  Jenner featured a bright orange ‘do as well, the statement accessory for her simpler look with high waisted denim cutoffs, a boxy white crop top, and sparkling silver choker.  While her outlandish hair color/bikini combo may not catch on as a street style trend anytime soon, Jenner’s ‘90s inspired festival look is an easy and fashionable outfit to try at home.

Ellie Goulding: Goulding sported a different look than most of her celebrity counterparts this year, bringing light to the athleisure trend.  With her metallic silver shorts and technicolor windbreaker jacket and sneakers at Coachella, she had the perfect sporty chic look.  Metallic garments are a great way to brighten up looks this summer and into fall!

by

Chambray Romper: There’s nothing more American than denim in every type of garment.  This season go for chambray, a lighter, softer material with a denim look.  The romper is the ultimate effortless outfit choice.  Dress it down with white Converse or pair your romper with red sandals or heels for upscale cookouts.

Bandanas: Rosie the Riveter with a twist.  Replace your necklaces with a tied bandana to make any outfit look more patriotic.  Make a bandana the statement piece of your outfit, pairing it with a simple white top and denim cutoffs.

Red Heels: Avoid stilettos on this fairly casual holiday.  Opt for a chunky heel in a bold red tone to pair with cutoffs, raw hem or white jeans, and dresses.  A versatile choice, your shoes can be the standout piece with a simple outfit or pair them with another small red accessory, such as a clutch, that pull the outfit together from head to toe.  Whatever you choose, red heels are sure to make your look patriotic.

Wide Leg Pants: This style is perfect for a classier look this weekend.  With a loose yet flattering fit, wide leg is the way to go for a summer pant.  Try a bold color or pattern to brighten your look like the royal blue style below, or a pinstripe to complete your patriotic look.  To avoid losing any height in these pants, pair them with a heel and fitted top.

Graphic Tee: The graphic t-shirt is a classic look for the Fourth of July.  This year, add style to the look by pairing a graphic tee with a jean skirt or tucked into white jeans with simple accessories.  Instead of an overdone flag print top, choose a more subtle look–a white shirt with bold red or blue lettering, a striped top, etc. Complete the look with Converse, strappy sandals or espadrille flats.

Havana Nights: Cuba-Inspired Island Fashions

by

This season, celebrities and fashion icons have set their travel itineraries for an entirely new destination: Cuba. This country is taking the fashion world by storm and drawing in a new wave of visionaries with an eye for culturally rich corners of the world. Everything from the architecture to the native dress has drawn in celebrities like the Kardashian clan and even made the cut as a venue for Karl Lagerfeld, who hosted the Chanel Resort 2017 show in Havana this May.

The brightly colored century-old buildings that line the streets of Havana, Cuba’s capital, are enough to inspire the latest fashion trends—top that with rhinestone-clad street performers sporting layers of eye-catching ruffles in the most flattering silhouettes and Cuba has suddenly become a fashion-lover’s dream. The aesthetically pleasing city has clearly had an impact on this season’s latest trends.  The following looks hail from the fashion world’s latest theme, Havana nights: Cuba-inspired island fashions.

A spring/summer trend that was featured in more than one Havana-themed fashion show is the brimmed fedora-style hat. A Cuban staple, this trend was spotted on the runways paired with light, airy sundresses and even evening gowns. For a more casual look that still captures these runway trends, fedoras can be paired with shorts and gladiator sandals to add flare.

Native Cuban fashion seems to follow a specific mantra that has been displayed in this season’s fashion: it’s all in the details. Clothing is uniquely embroidered with various patterns, a look that clearly inspired brands like Temperley London. Nearly every look in the Temperley London Spring 2016 Ready-to-Wear collection was embroidered with abstract floral patterns that gave each piece an island vibe. With Chanel’s Resort 2017 collection reflecting the same emphasis on details, we expect this trend to make its way to mainstream fashion in no time.

The most telltale sign of Havana-inspired fashion is ruffles. Models in this season’s fashion shows emulate the mambo-dancing women that embellish the streets in Havana with layers of ruffles that provide a fun, feminine texture on skirts, dresses, and sleeves. High-end designer brands like Chanel are not the only ones with island fever this season. Find bold, colorful prints with ruffled details at stores such as H&M, who featured more Cuban and tropical looks in their Studio Spring/Summer 2016 collection.

Whether you’re sporting a sundress with ruffles and intricate embroidery or simply reflecting Cuba’s unique architecture with clothing in bright, bold colors, transform your closet this summer into your own personal Havana.

Blogger Spotlight: Anastasia Souris

by

Anastasia Souris, rising blogger, stylist, and fashion enthusiast, combines her adventures through her twenties with her appreciation for life’s little details to create a fun, relatable, and visually drool-worthy social media presence. From Los Angeles to Cleveland and everywhere in-between, Souris provides entertainment and fashion advice inspired by good people, good cuisine, and of course, good style. Her blog and social media have not only been an inspiration to her followers but also a career platform leading to collaborations with brands like Victoria’s Secret PINK and Triangl. Someone I personally love to follow on her upward journey in the fashion world, Anastasia is one to watch. Stay up-to-date on her travels and brand collaborations through her Instagram and blog. Read on to learn more about this month’s blogger spotlight: Anastasia Souris.

Cliché: Have you always been interested in fashion? If not, what is the point in your life that really attracted you to this industry and lifestyle?
Anastasia Souris: Absolutely, fashion has forever been a part of my life. Even as a little girl I was cutting up dresses, having mini photo shoots in my backyard, and drawing designs in a sketchbook. I recently came across a bunch of old photos of my “photoshoots” from when I was little and the only thing I could think of was, “Wow, I have not changed one bit.” Super embarrassing but too funny to get rid of!

If I remember correctly, there was a point in your fashion career where you were active on the design path. Is fashion design something you’re pursuing or is it more of a hobby for you?
Design is so so interesting to me. I have made quite a few pieces for myself, and I love to take clothing I have thrifted and give them a little “face lift” adding some beading, lace or fringe, but I do not see a career path in design. It’s definitely fun to create my own things but I am not confident in my design abilities by any means.

Your website and social media sites, namely Instagram, are very aesthetically pleasing with a common color scheme.  What is your inspiration for the look of your media presence?
I think my ethnicity has to do with my aesthetic. I’m 100% Greek, growing up I would spend my summers in the house my grandmother grew up in. It’s a little island that is so amazingly beautiful I have always held it so close to me. I think the reason you see so much white and pastel on my feed stems from that. I love everything about that home so I think it definitely carries into the way I dress and perceive things.  

IMG_3038

Your travel destinations seem to be strongly tied to your artistic sense.  What is your favorite place you’ve traveled thus far?  The most inspiring?
My wanderlust sometimes gets out of hand but I am always wanting to collect new moments and memories. I think by far the most inspiring place I have been to has to be Australia. I have a lot of family in Melbourne so it was amazing to spend time with them and have my own tour guide. My favorite place has to be a tie between Palm Springs and Phoenix, I just thrive in the desert. The hotter the better!

You have very credible internship experience in the fashion industry (BCBG, Cejon Accessories for Steve Madden).  What is the biggest takeaway you gained from these internships?
Both of these internships were very important to me. They were my first roles in the fashion industry, so I learned so much about myself while in these positions. The biggest thing I took away from them was that this is not going to be an easy road. The fashion industry requires a lot of hard work, dedication, and a little tough skin.

Tell me a little bit about your collaborations. Are the connections made through social media, local interactions in your hometown, or otherwise? Your favorite collaboration?
My collaborations have been the most exciting part of starting a blog. It still gets exciting when a brand will reach out to you to work together! Majority of my connections are made through Instagram, and then my website. I have worked with brands like VSPINK, triangl swim (my personal favorite), and local brands like Blair Ritchey and Badass Tees.  

IMG_3883

Who is your biggest celebrity style inspiration and why?
This is the hardest question. I get the majority of my inspiration from Pinterest, but my blogger obsessions right now are Happily Grey, Sonya Esman, and the brand Chloe. I really love that free spirit boho girly look.

What is one wardrobe essential you can’t live without?
I cannot live without my black leather moto jacket from Urban Outfitters. I’ve had it for like 3 years and I wear it all year round; it’s my obsession.

What are your future plans, specifically in the fashion industry?
This point in my career has been the hardest but most important. I moved back to Cleveland from New York City and felt so lost. It was a major learning year for me, but I started my blog and I would love to continue it. My dream job right now would be to work in branding and social media. I definitely see myself out west so I am looking forward to seeing what the future has in store for me!

What is your biggest piece of advice for aspiring fashion bloggers?

Absolutely don’t give up! Stay true to who you are, it’s an easy place to get lost and self-conscious. Ignore the people who have an opinion and at the end of the day just have fun. It has been a whirlwind of an experience and I do not regret taking the leap one bit.

4 Pieces to Help You Transition from Spring to Summer

by

It’s no secret that the transitional period between seasons can take a toll on your sense of style – the constant debate about wearing a jacket, the inconsistent weather, and the daily battle between boots and sandals.  Luckily, this season’s latest trends have made our transition into summer a little easier, and may include pieces already in your closet that can be worn throughout both seasons.  Read on to find the 4 pieces to help you transition from spring to summer!

Shirts with cutout and exposed shoulders are the perfect piece that can not only be worn throughout spring and summer, but are also perfect for the moderate season in between.  Pair long sleeve exposed-shoulder tops with jeans and flats for cooler days or shorts and a gladiator sandal in the warmer summer months.  The exposed shoulder trend gives a subtle sexiness to the basic cap sleeve while remaining classy.  

Raw hem denim is another trend to look out for in the coming months; what started as a celebrity trend is quickly emerging to the masses.  The fray that takes the place of the sewn hem on these jeans (hence the name) is a detail that would be a sin to cover with boots, making it the perfect transitional piece between spring and summer.  This style is best paired with flats and sandals or dressed up with classic pumps, showing off the ankle, an underrated and slimming feature among all body types.

The leather jacket is a staple piece that belongs in every wardrobe.  This is a transitional piece for all seasons, but is often looked over as a summer garment.  A leather jacket adds the perfect amount of edge to nearly any outfit from jeans to shorts and even dresses.  Through the transitional period into summer, layer a leather jacket with a flowy tank for a feminine touch or a graphic tee to dress down your look.  Double up on trends and sport raw hem denim to complete your outfit!

It often seems like the most difficult garment to transition with from spring to summer is shoes.  We constantly struggle with it being too warm for boots and not quite warm enough for sandals.  This season I found that cutouts and partially enclosed shoes are the best transitional piece when it comes to footwear.  The lace-up shoe trend can be found in several different types of shoes and provide a bit more warmth than a sandal while still giving off a light, warm weather vibe.  Lace-up flats go great with jeans and shorts alike.  For a dressier look, lace-up open toe booties provide a smooth transition from spring to summer while staying on-trend.
