fitted tuxedo pants are big this fall. let’s be honest; they’re basically chic skinny pants with thick stripes down both sides. either way, these four celebrity examples are easy to translate and pull off!
new york fashion is so inspiring. as i walk around the city during this visit, i’m taken back by how lovingly everyone embraces the creativity and eccentricity of personal style. at any point on a street corner, you could see a prim woman dripping in luxurious brands (yet not one logo being flashed), a group of hipsters in all their unique thrift store finds, a drag queen wearing the most fabulous sequence dress ever made, a couple of guidos sportin’ their tanks with chains, and a homeless person. the mix of fashion and personalities makes this city a spectacular place to be. and the best part? no one seems to be ridiculed for representing themselves. everyone is free to look however they desire and seeing that is invigorating.
the general assumption made by the masses about new york is that it’s scary, big, and expensive. while i’ll 100% agree with everything listed, it’s also where millions of people feel like they’re part of a community. i would have never guessed that any individual could feel “at home” in a crazy, non-stop, loud, and oh-so-busy city. however, as i walk the streets, i can feel the sense of commonality. people know each other. people are comfortable walking the streets at two in the morning. people recognize their friends as they’re crossing an insane street full of traffic.
i started to recognize how new york city residents truly have a love affair with this place. there’s so much more to it than popular tourist hot spots. it’s where 8,244,910 people call home and, by “home”, they really, really mean it.
tribal is a hot trend for summer. if you’re like me, sprinkling in new, bold trends is the best way to try them out.
let’s start with a classic outfit. this outfit happens to pull in another hot trend, the 70′s.
now let’s add some subtle tribal pieces to try out our trend
these three pieces are all from forever 21. doesn’t hurt to try a trend for under $8, right? if you’re thinking of committing to the trend, try these necklaces for $80 and over…
House of Harlow $80
Jen’s Pirate Booty $145
Brandy Pham $148 (great way to tie in this summer’s geometric shape trend, too!)
another simple way to try tribal is with an easy-to-wear skirt…
