Trend Report Tuesday- Denim Skirts

I remember when I was in 3rd grade, mini denim skirts were so popular for girls. Now the trend is back but re-amped. I’m really love in this trend because for me, it gives off this boho/western vibe. I’ve seen some people at Coachella and other music festivals wear this look with a big studded belt and crop top. You can also make it a edgier look by adding a blazer and a pair of stilettos. I think a denim skirt is a perfect staple to have in your wardrobe for the late summer/early fall season. Here are a few of my favorite denim skirts:

Trend Report Tuesday- Baseball Caps

I’m finally glad that baseball caps are in style now because I’ve been wearing them for a long while whenever I was a having a bad hair day or if I hadn’t washed my hair that day. Baseball caps are so fun and versatile to wear, they spice up any old casual outfit. You can wear a vintage cap with a pair of ripped jeans and a t-shirt or a pink cap with a casual t-shirt dress and some vans sneakers. Here are some of my personal favorite baseball caps:

Trend Report Tuesday- Birkenstock

The Birkenstocks are back from the past! I wasn’t actually alive during the last trend but I am now. When I first saw people at my school wearing these shoes, I thought they weren’t that cute with their nature-looking style. I totally thought this trend wouldn’t spread because the shoes are just not that cute, but it turns out people LOVE them. It’s like every single girl at my school wears them. Birkenstocks have definitely grown on me but I just haven’t had the time to go out and by myself a pair.

The thing I really like about these shoes are that they’re very versatile. They work with both socks and no socks. They’re perfect for a casual summer day with a simple t-shirt and jean shorts. They add a more casual and trendy look to the outfit. Birkenstocks are also great for the fall. The most famous way at my school to wear Birkenstocks is with a thick pair of wool socks. Wool socks are what give the Birkenstocks that nature vibe. Of course, you can wear just regular ankle socks or some funky polka dot socks. That’s what makes these shoes so versatile. The other thing I love about these shoes is the type of vibe they give off. They’re more suited for a bohemian look which I am totally into this year. They look great with a pair of ripped up jeans and a floral lace kimono or even a simple maxi dress.

Here are some great places to find Birkenstocks and even some knock off brands for the people who don’t want to pay as much:

Trend Report Tuesday- High Waisted Pants

This week’s trend is one of my favorites, high waisted pants. High waisted items have become SUPER popular in the world of fashion and I’m so glad they have. I hate hate HATE wearing jeans that hang at your waist. I just felt that they were too short and I could never wear crop tops with them. I’ve always wanted a pair of high waisted for years now but they weren’t really the cute thing to wear. People thought of high waisted pants as “granny pants”. But one magical day when I went shopping at American Eagle, my favorite place to buy jeans, they had high waisted jeans! And the best part? THEY WERE JEGGINGS!! I love jeggings so much because they are just so much more comfortable than normal, tight jeans. Jeggings also fit and flatter your body better which is a plus. I currently 2 pairs of high waisted pants from AE and I also have a black pair of jeggings from H&M. High waisted pants also allow people to wear crop tops without showing their stomach. My go-to outfit are my high waisted jeggings, a crop top, and a nice fuzzy flannel. I honestly think everyone should own a pair and they have become one of my essentials.

These are the exact high waisted pants I own and where I bought them at:

H&M black high waisted

Here are some great clothing stores to buy some affordable high waisted pants:

Trend Report Tuesday: Kimonos

When I first heard about this trend, I didn’t exactly like it. I thought that kimonos were very unflattering and didn’t fit into my style, but they eventually grew on me. What I love about them is that they are very versatile and is a perfect “sweater” to wear in the summer. It’s very light and flowy and kind of makes you look like a hipster which is always a plus. Kimonos come in all styles and lengths to match your own personal style.

I currently have 2 kimonos that I purchased from TJ Maxx. They are currently my favorite styles. The black one is all lace in the back and has some fringe on the bottom which gives so flare to the outfit. I love to wear it on top of a crop top and high waisted shorts because its nice and long to cover up your back. It’s also very bohemian looking which is a perfect addition to my style.

BLACK KIMONO

 

My other kimono is a rich cream color with some lace trimming. I like to wear this one on fancier occasions since it’s a little bit more elegant looking, in my opinion. I usually wear this with a nice top and jeans or a on top of a basic romper.

PINK KIMONO

Here are a few kimonos that I really like:

trac cream lace kimono

Nordstrom has some good quality kimonos for a little bit pricier than what I would pay for, but I love this lace one because it’s perfect for dressing up an outfit.

la hearts floral kimono

PacSun is a great place to buy bohemian clothing. I’m really into the longer kimonos because they give off a better vibe, if that makes any sense.I like the dark floral and the fringe at the bottom.

black lace kimono

 

Forever21 has a great variety of clothing for any fashion style. I like the lace detailing and I also love the affordable price of this kimono. Another place to get some deals for kimonos is TJ Maxx. They aren’t guaranteed to have any, but you’d be surprise at what clothing items you can find there.

band of gypsies kimonoUrban Outfitters has very beautiful printed kimonos. This happens to be my favorite print from that store because I like the earth tones in it. If you’re willing to pay a little more to get a fancier kimono, I would definitely get one from here.
