Fit-wear has been growing in the fashion world, as you can see in our Athleisure post. Now, your workout gear can be a designer brand name and you can be the most stylish one on the treadmill.

Brands such as Under Armour, Nike, Ellie, and Fabletics have all succeeded in adding a touch of style to the wonderful world of workouts.

When purchasing workout gear, keep in mind that it is the quality and practicality of the garments, not simply color, pattern, or brand name. While many higher end brands are great quality, some things may not really be necessary for the actual workout itself.

Summer footwear is plenty varied and always fun, yet sometime we have a hard time straying from our trustworthy flip flops or running sneakers.

Espadrilles are a comfy and cute alternative to your everyday flip flop style that are just as casual as you would like for them to be. They come in wedge or flat form, allowing them to be worn in any location, for any occasion.

imagesAccording to wisegeek.com, “Espadrilles or alpargatas are normally casual, flat, but sometimes high-heeled shoes originating in the Pyrenees. They usually have a canvas or cotton fabric upper and a flexible sole made of jute rope. The jute rope sole is the defining characteristic of an espadrille; the uppers vary widely in style.”

I attribute their start of popularity in the US with Lauren Bacall’s wearing them in the 1948 film Key Largo.

Braids have come a long way from the classic and simple braid straight down one’s back. Now there’s quite a few different ways to twist and weave your hair into streamlined and woven perfection.

Return of the Farm Girl

hmprodOveralls have made yet another comeback for this warm weather season. Just when we think we have seen the last of them they make yet another return, yes it appears that 90’s style is coming back full swing.

Whether you are wearing them over a swimsuit or just for a day of adventure in the sun, overall shorts are a fun way to add some variety to your summer wardrobe.

rsacs308_whiteStyling these is as simple or as difficult as you make it. Any style can be pulled off with this one staple piece of clothing: boho-chic, skater, preppy, etc. It all depends on what you pair your overalls with. 00080596-01

Have fun sporting this ever-recurring style, and make sure to hold onto your pair for future pop ups of overall fun for the warmer seasons and trends.

Culottes: Friend or Foe?

Culottes, also known as Gaucho pants, or wide leg trousers, are making a serious comeback this year, at least on the runway.  But the question is: can regular women wear this trend without looking frumpy and dumpy?  The jury is still out…but it would be a fun trend to experiment with.

The key to styling culottes is to show some skin above the belt.  A pretty top which accentuates the shoulders and arms will help offset the straightness of the culottes.

Wedding Wear

Spring is traditionally the most popular wedding season. Depending on the style and location of the wedding, the dress code may differ greatly. For example, the attire worn to a laid-back beach wedding is very different then a ballroom formal wedding.

For a more casual outdoor wedding, a fancy jumpsuit dressed up with some jewels would do. Here are a few ideas of classy, spring-casual wedding outfits.

 

Last Resort: White + Denim

If we counted how many times we say, “I have nothing to wear,” while staring into a fully stocked closet, we would probably be appalled at the number. But yet, it happens on a regular basis to the best of us. That’s why it is essential to have a go-to look in the closet that is comfortable and fashionable. One of those outfits can be as simple as a white shirt paired with well-fitted denim. This look is a classic; and best of all, anyone with any body shape or style can wear it!

Let’s Get Waisted

Summer fun in the sun can be difficult to be had when you’re uncomfortable with your barely-there swimwear.

For smaller girls, it can sometimes be difficult to find a modern bikini that has more than 4 square inches of body coverage. I know that I personally can’t find anything more modest looking below a size 4.

34136341_049_bHigh-waisted bikinis may be the absolute perfect solution. While masking some potential discomfort with your tummy showing, they give off a trendy, fashionable, and vintage vibe that is perfect for some beach hangouts.

These bikini bottoms are cut to accentuate and highlight the best of our curves, while still remaining somewhat modest and covering up more skin than a bikini normally would. arjx403044_highwaisted,w_mkz6_frt1

Though high quality bikinis may be expensive, investing the added money in one that makes you feel comfortable and will last you a few summers is definitely worth it in the long run.

High-waisted bikinis are fun for the adventurous. It is comforting to know that while swimming, diving, climbing, playing, and exploring, she won’t have to worry about anything coming untied or exposed.
