Trends: Velvet

I’ve recently noticed a lot of velvet items appearing on my insta, being worn by bloggers and on the street.
While it may be more of a winter fabric, it can definitely be worked into summer, a floral dress teamed with a velvet boot/bag or a velvet cami dress worn over a white tee.
It’s also the perfect fabric for the changing Melbourne weather!

I am totally OBSESSING over these on trend blush shades at the moment.
Which is very unlike me as I am strictly a black, white and grey girl, but I guess there is nothing wrong with stepping out of my comfort zone once in a while…

DIY Frayed Denim

I recently fell in love with the frayed denim trend that has been featured heavily in street style pictures and on fashion blogs.

I found a few pairs online for $100+, and while that is not mega expensive for a pair of jeans, I felt that I could DIY a pair of jeans myself.

2016-05-29 15.49.08

So I chose a pair of Men’s Regular Fit Jeans for a slightly baggier fit, cut them to the length that I wanted and ta-da! Frayed jeans for less than $20!

2016-05-29 15.51.53-4

I also plan to give them a wash to loosen up the threads for more of a frayed look and sew a few cm’s above the fray to stop it unravelling too much!

NYFW 2016 Street Style

New York Fashion Week…. 4 little words that can quicken the pulse, make a fashionista’s heart beat pitter patter and drain the wallet.

Take a look at my pick of this year’s Street Style. Overall, I feel that the stylings were more casual than the years before, think slip dresses, elongated/flared sleeves, toned down colours, and sneakers.

What are your thoughts?

Trends I love

I am really lovin’ a few trends that are floating around the fashion scene as of late.

Lace up Detail

I am currently on the search for a shirt (or a jumper for winter) with this amazing lace up detail.
It adds interest to any outfit and I can see it becoming a staple in my wardrobe-that’s what I tell myself anyway!

NAKED VICE 4

THEY ALL HATE US

NAKED VICE 2

Frayed Denim

I have loved this trend for a long time now, but I have never found the perfect frayed denim… until I found these and what do you know! they are sold out! ugh.
So the search continues, I may even have to go DIY!

THE ALL HATE US 6

Frayed Denim

 Flared Sleeves

This trend was a hit during the recent fashion weeks. Similar to an Ellery flare, but wider and more elongated.
Kinda like wearing your boyfriends shirt!

THEY ALL HATE US 5

THEY ALL HATE US 3

Neck Ties

This is a trend I am keen to try out.. one day when I am game!
I love that a wider silk tie, a bandanna or a leather string can be used in similar way, but giving a totally different look each time

THEY ALL HATE US 2

NAKED VICE

BECAUSE I NEED IT

Off the Shoulder

A perfect trend for summer, even better if its part of an all white ensemble.
Sara of Harper & Harley demonstrates the look perfectly here.

HARPER AND HARLEY

Cropped/Flared Pants

If you knew me well, you would know that I am ADDICTED to culottes. I have several pairs on rotation.
So it seems a bit of a no brainer to try their slimmer cousin. If they are as easy as culottes then sign me up!

 

Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 preset

I love to try out new trends, but I always try to keep my wardrobe simple and full of things that I would wear on a regular basis rather than a one off wear item. Otherwise I find that I end up with a full wardrobe of crap that I don’t wear and an empty wallet!

Know where I can find one of these items or just wanna show some love? Leave a comment above 🙂 <3
