Styling Stripes

To many people, they dislike wearing stripes because it doesn't look good on them! My grandfather always tells me that wearing horizontal stripes makes you looks fatter & vertical stripes taller.
Many people believe that, or just avoid wearing stripes, it can be hard to style, for some people. But very easy for others!
But as long as you follow this one rule, stripes will look great!

Wear stripes with plain items.

& So what does that mean?
Well look below & browse through the sets below.

Do you see how the first one is so simple! When worn outside, it would be a normal everyday outfit, an outfit that doesn't look like it's taken a long time to style. In a sense, very plain.
How about the second one? Completely opposite right? This outfit could be worn at a party. Keep looking through the sets & try to think wear this outfit could be worn, & how with a few changes could be worn somewhere else!
Also look for fashion forward sets & sets that you think are just blah!
You'll see that stripes is one of the one styles that is so easy to wear & very multipurpose.

2011 Spring/Summer Trend Predictions

We've all started are shopping for the new year. Whether it's stocking up on the sales/clearances of this winter, or picking out styles from the new collections of our favorite stores.
It's hard to imagine, but Winter's almost over, even though right now, when I look out the window, I can see a blizzard of snow. The stores have revealed their new lines, helping us make our trend predictions of the new year!
As I browsed through the new arrivals of my favorite stores, I started noticing patterns.
1) All the clothes/outfits had a lot of bright color to them.
There were many outfits that fit pink, blue and orange as their main colors!
2) Floral prints were continuing, almost all the stores have some sort of clothing that has floral prints, whether it's soft pale colors, or big vibrant shades.
3) One of the main colors was pink. While many people have stopped wearing pink as much, it's peaking back. For example, if you looked at the dresses in the Golden Globes 2011, you'll see plenty of different beautiful shades of pink. After all, a women looks very pretty in pink ;)
4) Rompers are continuing, this trend uplifted last summer, and when I came back from my vacation, I desperately looked for my favorite one, maybe I'll find it this year, as they are showing in many stores & designers again.
5) Jeans jackets- who woulda thought. Sure you see some people still wear them, but they're officially back it style. I know I'm going to be pairing up my jeans jacket with a cute romper & gladiator sandals this spring!
