2015 Fashion Favorites and 2016 Spring trends
2015 was a fun year for fashion, we had feathers, flares, fur and fringe. Bohemian and 70's style was all the rage. I personally have to say I loved it all but I am a huge fan of 70's and boho fashion styles. I have always loved flare or bell bottom style jeans, I like a bit of a higher waist in jeans, versus the low cut that had been in style for many years. I don't like a dramatic high waist but a mid waist is a lot easier so you don't have to be constantly pulling up your pants or worrying about bending over. I adore fringe everything, from vests, jackets, tops, skirts, shoes and bags. I have been a huge fan of boho chic and tribal elements for many years so to have feathers become so popular was awesome for me, it gave me a chance to stock up on jewelry and clothing with one of my own personal favorite symbols for years to come. I can remember a few years back having to custom order items with a feather and now you can find them on just about everything. I personally have never been big into fur, sure I have had a faux fur rug or throw blanket but fashion wise I have never owned much on the faux fur front. I have a few jackets with some faux fur collars, and then a pair of faux fur lined uggs from 8 years ago, but I did love the looks that many of the designers came out with and hot bloggers were wearing. I did get a few pieces that were close in resemblance to the fur items like my shag vest and my 8 year old has the Target faux fur brown vest, which she loves. I think it was a great fashion accessory for sure and only really just don't care for it myself but I live in the hot climate maybe if it got colder here I would appreciate the warmth of faux fur more but for me in South Florida to wear a faux fur heavy vest or jacket just isn't practical, but I will never say it didn't like stylish and chic.
I loved all the amazing trends and styles of 2015 and I am really excited to see what 2016 has in store. I have my fingers crossed that the 70's vibe sticks around a little longer. I am absolutely loving Alice & Olivia's pre spring line. With high waisted A line skirts, vintage style bell bottom jeans, gaucho pants and the list could go on and on. I would love to see some gorgeous boho chic spring dresses and skirts, with some chic flats, strappy platform sandals and d'Orsay shoes are still a fave of mine. I would want to see some length on the shorts not a fan of daisy dukes, and love the mid waist. Layers with off the shoulder tops and tanks, maxi skirts with a lot of flow and loving slits. Full a line silhouettes are a must have whether it is a dress or mid length to mini skirts. That's just a few of my favorite fashion looks I am hoping for for spring. Be sure to check out Alice and Olivia's new spring collection they just debuted to see what I am talking about. I couldn't even resist it, I wish I had enough cash to buy half the collection for my own wardrobe, for now I am going to have to hit the Internet for similar looks that will work with my budget. Already I have purchased several gorgeous a line skirts from Forever 21 that have a similar look for under $30 and can't wait to style them with some new designers I am collaborating with for the new year as far as my graphic tee obsession goes. I have teamed up with s couple amazing smaller designers to bring you some amazing graphics and positive messages. My first collaborated blog shot will be in a couple weeks and will be featuring the photos in early Feb for you to see some of the changes I am working on for the blog. I am so excited to share and can't wait for an amazing year.
Hope everyone has had a great start to 2016 and I will post a few of my favorites below along with some comparable pieces as well. Xoxo
