It’s that time of year again! The time when proud Americans gather far and wide adorned in Red, White and Blue apparel , gathering around Backyards and Beaches proclaiming how proud they are to be American or just to show off their trendy Stars and Striped outfits. Well, this year keep in mind , you can be patriotic without being corny. Here are some style ideas that may bring out your inner Fashionista.
Try pairing polka dots with solids.
We all know Stars and Stripes are a thing of forever. But you don’t have to be so literal. Try this look on for size. Pair a top much like this Dorthy Perkins cutback top with nicely taliored Burberry London pants and a Blzaer. Add accessories like a stylish Michael Kors bag and Cesare Paciotti shoes. Heels too high? Opt out for a solid colored flat or sandal. If these designers are a little pricey for your budget, Stores like Forever21, Bakers, New York and Co may suit you.
Keep the flag design to a minimum.
If you can not shake the urge to wear ” The Grande Ole Flag” please refrain from going overborad. Since the new fashion trend is “All White”, try wearing an all white outfit with a Patriotic shoe like the classic Converse All Stars, Jeffery Campbell Heels or to spruce up your look to match up with the traditional fireworks, the glow in the dark American flag kicks by Adidas ft. Jeremy Scott.
So for this Fourth of July , don’t forget to be sleek, creative and ready to look your best and stand out! Mix and match patterns, play with different shades of Red, White and Blue. Try Burgundy, Sky Blue, Cremes or Beiges. Whichever you decide, do it well and own it. Remember, less is more. Have fun!
Just when you thought you wanted Summer to last forever, HM gives us a reason to wish for fall. The brand director of Balmain Paris, Oliver Rousteing and models Jourdan Dunn and Kendall Jenner gave us a sneak peek at the red carpet of the Billboard awards dressed head-to-toe in pieces of the upcoming collection.
HM has had an amazing past collaborating with designers such as Versace (twice!), Alexander Wang, Roberto Cavalli and Maison Martin Margiela. The collection won’t be available until November 5, 2015 at select HM shops in 250 countries. Skipping the Summer doesn’t sound too bad!

Memorial Day weekend is quickly approaching and that means it’s the (unofficial) beginning of summer! Time for barbecues, festivals, street fairs and good vibes!

The next time you walk into your favorite clothing store, chances are you’ll find loud prints, flared leg pants and airy delicate textures. Fashion has been feeling groovy lately! The latest trends have had a lot of influence from the 1970s – a huge difference from the camo/leather trend we had last Summer. Instead of bold and structured, we’ve got soft, ribbed, and rugged which is perfect for summer festivals.
Move over skinny jeans! I can finally walk around in my bell bottoms without getting side eyes! I’ve always loved styles from the 70s because they were comfortable more than anything. Clothing was either loose fitting, or tailored during the decade of post-Woodstock, protest and change. Ways that cool cats like you you can transition comfortably into this trend is to start off with a pair of wide leg pants. The difference between wide leg and flare leg pants is that flare leg slims along your thigh then billows out around your calves. Wide leg pants are wide fitting from hip to ankle. If you dont have lots of height for a flare leg, you can opt for culottes. Culottes are the newest trend this season. While a few might remember them as gauchos, these wide leg shorts can be dressed up with pumps or dressed down with sneakers, so they match anyone’s style!
Can you dig it?

Summertime in New York is known for the hottest temperatures, hottest events and the hottest street fashion. Every year there’s a brand that takes over the Summer. Nike has been on top for as long as I can remember with their classic Air Force 1, and they kept consumers light on their feet last year with their Roshe Runs. But this Summer, Adidas is giving everyone a run for their money!
Adidas has the streets looking like a scene out of the 80s again! School kids are dressed head to toe in stripes and trefoil and I know some 80s babies who never stopped rocking their shell-toes! I think they owe a lot of their recent popularity to their amazing collaborations. Pusha-T, Teyana Taylor, Raf Simons, and Kanye West are just a few of the big names Adidas has been worked with. Adidas’ most recent collab, the Originals Superstar Supercolor Pack with Pharrell Williams featured their classic ‘Superstar’ made available in 50 different colors from “Semi Solar Pink”, to “Collegiate Gold” to “Sharp Blue”. On Adidas.com, only “Brown” remains out of all 50 colors that were released at the end of March.
My personal Adidas favorite is the Stan Smith. Minimal logo, great comfort and effortless style. Adidas has always been a leader in the game especially these past several months and the I can tell heat won’t be the only thing hot in the streets this Summer!
Do you have a staple pair of Adidas? Comment below!

Bucket Bag: The bucket bag is a core silhouette continued this season with Louis Vuitton making a strong statement with their appliques, embossing and metal accents giving a new look to the bag. The bucket bag also reduces its shape, becoming a more condensed version of what has previously been seen, with the exception of Dior and Moschino, who drift toward a much larger carryall shape.
Vertical Drop Pendant: A newcomer for spring 2015 is the vertical drop pendant. It creates a longer neckline while the extended silhouette greatens the potential for creativity; the possibilities are endless.
Braided Belt: The braided belt goes beyond the norm with metal accents and touches like utility buckles. The tuck through is all the rage for belts this season, allowing for extra-long tab to tuck through the belt itself.
Neck Scarf: The neck scarf, though simple, allows for a bold statement with material choice and details, including fringes, scalloped trims and wired edges. It opens the door to all types of creativity and opportunity for self-expression.
Bomber Jacket: The bomber jacket is the number one must have item in outerwear this season. So much material diversity, including mesh, sheer, satin and quilted applications. It’s a perfect cross to turn any outfit from Sporty to Edgy and Classy.
There is no doubt that the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion show is the sexiest fashion show of the year!
