Part 2: Colored Jeans

Colored jeans are a huge trend this spring and summer.  We can see these practical accessories on the runway, celebrities, and on the street.  The right pair can make an outfit fun and summery.   In this post I will give you my tips and tricks on how to style and find your perfect pair of colored jeans!

1. Less is More

My first tip would be to think of your jeans as your main accessory.  You don’t need a bunch of jewelry to make this piece fashionable.  The right watch or necklace is really all that you need in order to look cute and be comfy.

2. Roll it up!

Next,  cuff them!  Folding the base of your jean will make this bold statement much more casual and summer appropriate.

3. Up Top

Don’t just worry about the jeans themselves.  The right shirt will make your jeans pop and give you the look you are going for!  Try a bright shirt in a different color if you are trying your hand at the color blocking trend, a neutral top, or a patterned top with a color scheme that ties in with your pants.  DON’T: wear the same color shirt as your jeans.  You will look like a walking crayon.

4.  Find the right color!  I love coral, but it just doesn’t look good on my skin tone, so when I get a pair of colored jeans I want a light aqua color pair.  Meanwhile, Fiona totally pulls off this coral pair!

 

Here, I show how I would style colored jeans!  I love how fun colored jeans are, but you can also make them very casual!  This polyvore that I made shows you how you can style one pair of colored jeans so many different ways!

I love how in this video, Carly Cristman styles colored jeans!  All of her suggestions I totally agree with.  In general she has amazing style.

So that is how I would style colored jeans.  Here I give some links to my favorite jeans in a variety of price ranges.

This is the pair Fiona is wearing in the photo!  It comes in a ton of colors and is not too expensive:

This pair from jcrew is definitely expensive, but if you do have the money and would like to invest in a quality pair these are adorable:

If you are looking for a cute, inexpensive pair that will get you through the season then I love this pair from forever21.  I like all the colors, but the yellow I am a little iffy on.   However, I do this it could work with the right accessories and top!

Outfit of the Day!

Rompers are a great summer essential. From going to the beach or shopping around town, you can just slip on a romper and you’re good to go! You can dress them up or dress them down. They also make a great swim suit cover up! With this Romper, Fiona paired a light brown leather belt which brought out all of the colors in the romper.

Outfit of the Day!

It’s the first day of summer!! Now that the weather is clearing up, it’s time to start wearing those cute summer clothes you’ve been shopping for. We love this orange maxi dress from Nordstrom because it is so comfortable while still being fashionable! The color makes it fun so it is perfect to wear in the summer, while the length makes it appropriate for all sorts of events. All you need to accessorize is a cute belt and some plain colored sandals. If you want to dress it up a little more, try a necklace or some fun earrings!

Part 1: Colored Shorts

Hey everyone!

One of my favorite trends this year is colored shorts! I love how they can really make an outfit pop. They are also really easy to style. You can pair them with so many different things! What I really love about colorful shorts is that they can cover a wide range of styles. They can be edgy, girly, casual, preppy, anything! They are definitely a must-have for the summer.

With some small additions of rips and graded coloring, colored shorts can look very edgy. Paired with a denim shirt or an edgy sweatshirt, you can make colored shorts look super cool. Black vans are simple but still cool and edgy. Converse are a classic street style shoe, and you can dress up your edgy look with a pair of bright heels.

 

 

Colored shorts are super cute paired with a loose, flowing tank top. In the summer, you can pair them with a girly crop top or a light shirt and then dress up your look by wearing heels. To get a more relaxed look that is still cute and girly, a pair of pink vans are a great way to go! Simple black flats also give a girly vibe.

 

In the summer, a casual look is great for the beach or just hanging out with your friends. Colored shorts look great paired with sandals and a simple t-shirt. You can wear a cute graphic tee that is both comfortable and casual. You can make your look more interesting with bejeweled sandals or shoes with a cool detail like feathers or beads. For a more comfortable outfit, Toms are the way to go.

 

One of my favorite styles has always been preppy. Colored shorts are great paired with a collared shirt, or even a cute sweatshirt with an interesting detail. Oxfords are a classic preppy shoe, so they instantly add that little something to your outfit. Black flats make an outfit cute, but still comfortable. A simple pair of heels will instantly give you a preppy vibe with a collared shirt.

Shirts With Intricate Backs

Hi everyone:) Today, for my first post, I want to talk about one of my favorite types of shirts. I love shirts with an interesting back to them! Business in the front and party in the back anyone? 😉 The backs to these shirts may be crocheted, lace or anything really. Some of them have full intricate backs while others have a small or simpler pattern.

This Shirt Can Be Bought Here: http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/lush-eyelet-racerback-tank-juniors/3299922?origin=category&fashionColor=Pink&resultback=3453

What to Wear Underneath:

Bandeau: Bandeau’s are a strapless strip of fabric that covers the area over a girls chest. Below, I have a picture of a bandeau. The nice thing about bandeau’s is that you don’t have to wear a bra underneath at all depending on the type of bandeau! Some bandeaus even have padding or pushup instead of just plain cotton or some other fabric!

Bathing Suit: Bathing suits are great to wear under these shirts if you’re going to the beach or going swimming! This look appears super casual and effortless. Don’t wear a bathing suit underneath to school.  Below is a picture of girl we met on the beach wearing the shirt perfectly!

Where to Find Them:

Where can you find these fabulous shirts? You can find them anywhere if you keep your eyes open! I have found multiple shirts like these at Forever 21 and especially Nordstroms in the past. Where can you find these fabulous bandeaus? You can find them at American Apparel, Pac Sun, Forever 21 and Nordstrom or Nordstrom Rack. Currently, there are great bandeau’s on sale at Nordstrom Rack from around $5 to $15! For pushup bandeau’s, you can try Victoria’s Secret though they are expensive and their selection was small last time I checked. Bandeau’s can be slightly hard to find but they are worth it.

Brighter than the Sun

Bright colors are the colors of the summer! They put the pep in your step! 🙂 I love wearing bright colors, they put me in a good mood and they reflect my happiness. The great thing is, you don’t have to be brave or daring to wear bold colors! If you are a little shy, you can add a subtler touch of color with bright accessories, like earrings or bangles, or even just some cute, colorful pumps. If you need just the smallest touch of color in your outfit, you can wear some colorful eyeliner! You can also put color in your hair with a headband or a pretty clip. There are so many fun ways to add color to your outfit, I hope you guys enjoy these tips! 🙂

Bright colors brighten your day and get you in the mood for a beach party! 🙂

Let’s Get Waisted!

If you didn’t get the joke from the title well then I don’t know what else to say haha! In today’s fashion society, high waisted shorts are a big trend, especially for summer, my bestfriend Corrine and I are planning are getting some for the upcoming summer! They’re really cute, and they look good on about just anyone, the way they compliment a person is just amazing, the picture I chose of course was from tumblr. In order to rock these shorts you need to match it with a super cute top. You could wear high waisted shorts with a bandeau, a fringe shirt, a floral flowy shirt, cropped tops, a colorful tank top, just pull out anything from your summer closet and match to see what’s best and go! And to end your high waisted shorts look add a pair of vans shoes or sandals. It’s the perfect touch! High waisted shorts are definitely in style today, so I say yes get a pair for the summer!
