Pregnancy Looks for the In-Between Stages

on April 8, 2019

Your baby bump is starting to peak through! Pregnancy is such an exciting experience to share with your loved ones and it’s so thrilling to welcome a new little one into the world. However, your clothing is beginning to become a little snug and too tight to fit into. The next question is: how do I find my style for my in-between stages? Maternity options could be tricky because when you’ve reached the middle stages of pregnancy, some options end up being too big or too small. It all depends where you shop. Here are some styles that help for those not sure what to wear during their in-between stages of pregnancy.

1. Leggings

LEGGINGS! Perfect for lounge wear and lazy days. They’re simple and easy to style by dressing up or down – depending on your mood. Leggings are perfect for everybody, especially with a baby bump showing through. They stretch and mold perfectly to the shape of your body. They aren’t stiff like jeans but not too casual like yoga pants (although we do suggest yoga pants 100%). These are great for running errands and there is plenty of room to grow in them. There are smart leggings which look like work trousers, so basically leggings are a win-win.

2. Flowy Dresses

You need breathable clothing. Flowy dresses creates an illusion of hiding that baby bump while at the same time keeps you comfortable with room to breathe. These help you not look as pregnant as you really are. Dresses with either no waistbands or stretchy fabric helps you move freely when you’re on the go. They keep you and your little baby happy when you have no fabric squeezing your tummy. Flowy dresses come in all different types of styles and fabrics – such as cotton, linen, polyester, etc. – so you have so many options to choose from.

3. Kimonos

Kimonos are super bohemian and have been in-style for a while. Just like flowy dresses, these give you room to breathe without getting in the way of your daily tasks; and you look cute while doing them.  Kimonos are aerated and can be wrapped around your midsection or hung off to the sides from a draped and loose fitted appeal. These are so easy to handle while you are pregnant because they are long enough to cover your belly and leaves you room to keep growing.

4. Non-Lined Bralettes

No one talks about this too much, and I think we should address it. Finding the right pregnancy apparel doesn’t have to do with just outerwear. Bras are the most difficult transition because when you’re reaching your second and third trimester, lined and wired bras become so uncomfortable. Bralettes or unlined bras are super great to alleviate the soreness and stiffness you would feel with lined or wired bras. They’re also super cute! Most are laced and dainty, so they are very delicate on the body. These are so much nicer to wear.

5. Or, show off that bump!

There are no wrong turns showing off that bump. We’re aiming for comfortability and if you don’t have any of the symptoms related to the clothing up above, then wear the look that makes you happy. Tightened dresses, secured skirts, and bathing suits will definitely accentuate the curvy baby belly. Be proud of being a new mama, it’s exciting and thrilling all at the same time!

A Fashom Rainy Day Look

on March 29, 2019

a82f37334423fd3ed35449eb599c520d

It seems like many people don’t talk about what to wear on rainy days. Mostly because on rainy days, people choose to stay indoors (we don’t blame you). On separate occasions, some people have to venture out into the weather and run some errands, start the day at work, or celebrate a birthday party. While the rain is tricky to style around with, we have some solutions here at Fashom that will hopefully better your style on a mucky and gloomy day like so. April is approaching, and as we all know, it is prone to being the rainiest month. Let’s kick off our rainy day essentials to keep you stylish and dry. Photo  credit to @dresscoralynn above.

1. Striped Shirt

The simple striped shirt can never steer you in the wrong direction when it comes to casual wear in the rain. It’s the type of shirt that becomes your best friend when situations like this occur; it can get damaged, ripped, or drenched in the downpour, but it’ll always be the perfect choice for when it comes to rainy days. On top of all of this, it is super casual, fashionable and can literally go with any outfit. The casual striped shirt can never do you wrong. We have very similar picks at Fashom such as our Natural Life Striped Hi Lo Sweater or V-Neck Sweater and our Skies are Blue Striped Knit Top.

2. Vests Upon Vests

 

With your accessorized umbrella of course, vests are the best way to keep dry during the rainy seasons. April is a month of on and off downpours, and with vests you can look cute and fashionable as well as keep yourself warm and dry. Vests allow you to layer your outfit with a sweater, hoodie, or long sleeve tee underneath to create the ultimate rain shield. We have similar styles at Fashom such as our Skies are Blue Soft Corduroy Vest, which is also filled with cute polka dots all over!

3. Bomber/Rain Jacket

Instead of the bland and boring raincoats, try a bomber styled jacket with wick protection from the rain. These jackets are almost considered raincoats because when water hits them, it wicks right off. The silhouette is super flattering to any body type because with the jaw string waist, it can give a curvature to the look. Put on your favorite rain boots and strut in the rain with this stylish pick. We have very similar outerwear at Fashom such as our Staccato Draw String Utility Coat and our Fate Drape Parka Coat.

4. Signature Boots

Every fashion wearer needs a pair of nice rain boots. Firm fitted boots keep you looking sleek and chic in the rain. The signature red rain boots help keep your rain day ‘fit colorful and bold. If you want to stay fashionable while you have to run out in the rain, slim fitted and bright red rain boots are the way to go. A most recent trend are ankle length rain boots, which are also super stylish. This trend has surpassed throughout major cities such as New York, Philly, and Boston; and they’re super cute. They produce the illusion on booties so you can also pair these with an every day outfit.

5. Sleek Black Pants

So we have the rain boots,  a rain jacket, vests, and shirt, now it’s time to talk pants. The simplest way to finish your rainy day outfit is to add a pair of sleek black pants. Black is the easiest to tame when it rains because droplets are hidden in the material (if you spill something on you too, it’s not as noticeable as opposed to denim and brighter colors). Black pants are easy to deal with when it rains. We have some nice black pants at FASHOM such as our RD Style Black Leggings and our Faux Leather Panel Leggings. Easy to tame and stylish at the same time.

ARIES: This Months Picks for the Feisty Fire Sign

on March 25, 2019

It’s Aries month! Aries are known as a hardheaded, independent, direct, and energetic women. Aries move quickly, sometimes with the appearance of more haste and impulsiveness than thought, patience, or follow-through. You know what you want, and you will find a way to get it done. Your zodiac symbol is the Ram, so you approach life “head-on” in most scenarios. Your straight forward personality shows through your fashion and style, so Aries tend to be the chameleon of the fashion world and blend with what is “in,” however they always make it look even better. Here are this months picks for the iconic Aries woman:

1. Street Style & Boss Basics

 

Aries LOVE comfort, athleisure, and the NYC street lifestyle. Signature luxury pieces are added to the mix, but Aries don’t really need that to produce a statement. Their fiery red status evokes a mystery behind each piece and it’s shown in each fit. In a way, Aries don’t think too much into their clothing, however that’s what makes it so unique. Their bold characteristics are shown through their personality – not much their style. Here are some styles that represent that “boss” side to an Aries that many people desire to have.

2. Everyday Comfort, Work Flow, and Weekend Getaways

 

Everyday looks to work, to class, or just a general weekend stroll around the block to run errands all fall within the same wavelength. If an Aries could wear sweats all day, they would. They have a business professional side to them like all signs, but they embark it in their own casual flare. Check out the pieces above that enlist an ideal look for an Aries for work, everyday style, and weekend adventures.

3. Night Owl Rouge

 

The best part about an Aries fashion sense is the carelessness put into it. Not saying necessarily there is no effort, but the effortless aspect is what makes it so intriguing. Without even trying, an Aries pulls off the ultimate challenge that many people struggle with: statements. Aries need to unwind and have a night out once in a while, and while they do, their fashion sense ultimately pulls through.

4. Hats and Head-On Apparel

 

Aries are “head-on,” which can be taken literally in their sense of style. The Aries woman tends to embellish in beanies, head pieces, and head jewelry in their clothing. The way they incorporate this is by adding it in as their final touch to their wardrobe. The ultimate Aries fit is not complete without some sort of head piece accessory. This can come across as a very grunge look, as some might say. Band tees and rock apparel fall very closely to this trend. Above are some inspired picks of headpieces an Aries might be caught red handed in.

5. Badwood Take

 

Natalie Wood is an LA native with her own streetstyle brand that was established in 2013. Personally, her entire take has an Aries aura specifically with style and grunge. She is a Capricorn (shoutout to the workaholic sign) but one of her dear friends Gabriella Abutbol models for her clothing and she is an Aries. Above are some inspo divided toward the visual representation of a pure Aries woman.

Spring FEVER: 10 FASHOM Essentials for all Body Types

on March 19, 2019

Spring is right around the corner and it’s time to plan ahead on outfits as the days get longer. Pastels, florals, and a pop of bold colors have been our favorites while prepping for this upcoming season. Here at Fashom, we have put together our top ten must haves for this upcoming season that you too can enjoy.

Screen Shot 2019-03-14 at 12.30.33 PM

1. Naked Zebra off the Shoulder Ruffled Tie Dress in Mustard (also available in Deep Navy):

Mustard and yellows are great colors for warmer seasons, and look especially illuminating on darker skin. Whether you’re looking for something for the weekend or something to go to work in, we suggest the Ruffled Tie Dress. The tie can emphasize what you want to show off and covers what needs to be hidden. It’s flowiness isn’t too flowy yet also doesn’t cling. It’s super comfortable for the warmer seasons. Pair this with your favorite strapped sandals and you’re spring ready.

2. Articles of Society Carly Skinny Crop Pants in Tobago:

Pop of color is one thing, and for the springtime it completes the entire outfit. A pop of color can take a dull blank canvas and create an entire ensemble of an outfit. This is why we suggest the Articles of Society Skinny Jeans in a bright coral color. Jeans are usually predictable in fashion; denim, dark denim, distressed denim… usually the furthest people go with their pant color is white. We want you to branch out this season and try a bold color pair of jeans. You can pair these with your favorite sneakers, a white plain tee, and you’re ready to go.

3: Skies are Blue Lace Embroidered Printed Kimono in Blue/White:

Kimonos are the “it” factor of spring fashion. Too cold to wear them in the wintertime, but too clingy and hot to deal with in the summer. Our Blue Lace Embroidered Kimono is the perfect top layer to complete an outfit. Crochet detailing and embroidery adds a bohemian and contemporary fresh look to the piece, but also adds classical notes as well. This is paired adorably with espadrille flats or wedges.

4: Ivory Cupro Aztec Embroidered Top in Mint: 

Bright colors. Aztec embroidery. Tee Shirt Worthy. This is the top for you. This bright blue and mint top is perfect on its own; you really don’t want any other accessories to upstage it. You cannot go wrong with this top either, as it standing alone is enough. When the climate gets a little bit hotter, pair this with some denim distressed jeans and your favorite sneakers – then you’re good to go.

5: Staccato Floral Print Dress in Navy:

Staccato is a brand new vendor for us with Fashom. And, they do not disappoint. Their styles are so easy to pair and layer together. This Floral Print Dress has a touch of flirtiness as well as some cute cuts throughout. This dress is the perfect choice for vacation spots like cruises or visiting the shore in Miami, FL. It’s not constricting and there’s a self-tie along the waist, which adds curvature to your silhouette.

6: Staccato V-Neck Criss Cross Front Tank in Ivory:

Another Staccato piece! This one is the shirt you’ll be wearing all spring and summer long. It’s perfect for brunch, the beach, the boardwalk, work, the weekend… what isn’t it for!? It can be paired with classic white jeans, chic blazer, tassel shorts, or tucked in a denim skirt. Sneakers high wedges, or sandals are also suggested with this top; the top makes the outfit. You cannot go wrong with this palm tank.

7: Leto Bohemian Gypsy Tassel Scarf in Pink:

Spring is not all about warm weather, so we included one of our all time favorite scarves. Unsettled weather causes the need to carry a couple more warmer items. It’s pastel pink hues gives an Easter basket vibe and the gypsy embroidery adds a fresh bohemian look. It’s the type of color that stands out without taking away from the rest of your outfit. This is so cute paired with a denim jacket and some cropped jeans, or you can take the casual route and wear joggers with this. There’s no going wrong with this scarf.

8: Skies are Blue Waist String Belt Jumpsuit in Blue-Orange:

Jumpsuits… we need them. Jumpsuits could be tricky, but one of our favorites is the Skies are Blue Waist String Belt Jumpsuit. The color palette is filled with bright pastel stripes running along the suit to elongate the silhouette. It’s loose fitting so you can breathe but not too flowy where it bubbles out. This fits amazingly and this piece is an entire look itself. Wear your favorite flats or sandals to add the finishing touches.

9: Andreé by Unit Embroidery Suede Skirt in Black:

Fashion has been riding the bohemian wave right now, and crochet and embroidery is entirely apart of that. This Andreé by Unit Suede skirt is one of our boldest prints within this trend, so we definitely suggest that this is a must-have for your spring and summer wardrobe. You can pair this with a light sweater tucked in the front, plain tank, or a kimono and you would be set for this bohemian vibe. This skirt is one of many items at Fashom that bumps to that Coachella look.

10: Mittoshop Multi Stripe Button Down Tie Front Knit Top in Cranberry/Aqua (also available in Army/Mustard):

This top is amazingly colored in bright and pastel colors running along the shirt vertically to elongate the figure. The tie front knot is how we suggest this to be worn. When user’s receive this in their box, they get a bit confused on how to wear it. The knot is so cute to play around with. The colors in our Mittoshop Stripe Down Shirt are mixed with cranberry reds, aquas, and mint blues to coordinate with the transition of winter to spring. Pair this with your favorite dark jeans, crushed velvet heels, and you’re all set!

Coral: The Color of the Year

on March 12, 2019

Every single year there is a color that is “in,” primarily that lasts from Winter all the way to the end of Fall of the next year until a new color is “in.” Candles, lipsticks, bralettes, bathing suits, NYFW street style… it’s everywhere and is so beautiful; to some it might remind them of their favorite scent or hot summer beach day.

Which Color Tone Are You?

on February 19, 2019

 

Everyone knows that you either have a cool or warm undertone. But finding out how could be tricky and figuring out which colors on the color wheel look best on you is equally as difficult. Some people are in between and have neutral undertones that require more attention to detail in their everyday clothing. This article will produce a better understanding on how to figure out which color tone or undertone you are in order to pair outfits together using the correct color blocking techniques.

First and foremost, if we take a look at the color wheel we see that the warm colors are reds, oranges, and yellows, while cool colors are greens, blues, and purples. Someone with a warm undertone would usually stand out in those bright reds, oranges, and yellows while someone with a cool undertone would look best in deep greens, blues, and purples.

 

Neutral undertones is a bit more complicated. People with neutral undertones are also lucky in the sense that they primarily look great in any color. However, neutral colors is where a cool color has warm undertones or if a warm color has cool undertones. For example, green is a cool color, but an olive green brings warm qualities. Red is a warm color, but a cranberry red brings cool qualities. Olive green would be considered more of a warm color and cranberry red would be considered a cool color. Mixing warm qualities with cool undertones and vise versa creates a neutral dynamic. Pinks, pale blues, cranberry reds, and olive greens are examples of neutral undertones.

Color blocking is another technique that neutral undertone people can get away with, which is where two opposite colors of the color wheel are worn to compliment one another. Red and green are complimentary, blue and orange are complimentary, and purple and yellow are complimentary. Below are some examples of each scenario:

Cool Undertones:

 

Warm Undertones:

 

Neutral Undertones:

 

Silver, Gold, or Rose Gold?

The most common technique is seeing if silver jewelry looks best on you or if gold jewelry looks best on you. This usually is the first and only indicator to tell if you are a cool undertone or a warm undertone. Silver jewelry will bring out the cool undertones in your skin and pigmentation while gold will bring out the warm hues in your skin. Whichever stands out the most and looks best on you is which to abide by. This solves whether or not reds, oranges, or yellows look best or if greens, blues, and purples look best.

Silver:

 

Gold:

 

Rose Gold:

 

Rose Gold on the other hand stands neutrally between the other two metallics. It brings out all skin tones, the undertones, and beautiful pigmentation in skin. If you are the one of many who can’t seem to find whether silver or gold looks best on you, try rose gold. Rose gold is so beautiful, lustrous, and rich and it meets in the middle between both color tones.

Check Your Veins

Another odd, yet helpful technique is to check your veins on your wrist. Blue veins indicate that you have a cool undertone, while green veins indicate that you have an olive or warm undertone. Once you figure that out, you’ll start to notice that blues, purples, and violets look best on you and bring out your complexion if you have bluer veins, and yellows, reds, and oranges will look best if you have greener veins. If you think you are stuck in the middle or can’t tell, you might be a neutral undertone.

White or Off-White?

Another tactic is to compare white clothes. White is a blank canvas and allows the pigment of your skin to stand out amongst it. Look and compare if a pure white or an off-white looks better on you. If a pure white looks better, you have a cooler undertone. If an off-white or washed out white looks better on you, you most likely have a warm undertone.

 

Natural Hair Color and Eye Color

If you have blue, grey, or green eyes with blonde, brown, or black hair, chances are you’re a cool undertone. If your eye color is brown, hazel, or amber eyes with strawberry blonde, auburn, or black hair with golden tones, chances are you have a warmer undertone.

Do You Tan or Burn? Or Both?

People who have a tendency to burn or not tan at all in the sun have a less likely chance of being a warm undertone. When people tan, chances are you have higher levels of melatonin in the skin. Melatonin gives the skin that yellow to olive pigment, which incidentally means you’re warm toned. If you burn or don’t tan easily, chances are you have cooler undertones because of the lack of melatonin in the skin. If you’re a neutral undertone, chances are you burn first before it turns to tan.

 

There are not rules to this, please feel free to experiment however you’d like. This article isn’t telling you what you should and shouldn’t wear, it’s just to help figure out your undertones in order to see which colors of clothing compliment you best.

1. Vertical stripes add to your height. Ever wanted to look taller but didn’t feel like wearing heels? Try an outfit with vertical stripes! Your figure will definitely look elongated, and you won’t even have to wear high shoes to do it!

2. Try a smaller design such as polka dots or flowers. By wearing these kinds of patterns, you will bring more attention to your waist and other curves, instead of taking away from them by wearing larger, more distracting patterns.

For the love of Culry Hair

Two days ago a friend on Facebook added me to a group that gives some tips on how to take care of the curly hair. I loved the idea of the group. Most of the members of the group started to share their stories and struggle with curly hair and with how some people were very cruel toward them because of their hair.

Some societies put standards for hair and how it should be in order to be beautiful. One of the members shared her story about how she was bullied by people because of her curls starting from her mother, father, and siblings till her friends and her school. She said that she used to be ashamed of her hair and she used to straighten it all the time in order to fit in. When she finished her high school she got cancer and she was so scared of losing her hair. She said, ” being a girl with a curly hair was a nightmare, but imagining being bold is a horror movie”. When she shared her fears with family and friends they told her it’s not a big deal as her hair is bad anyway so losing it doesn’t cause a problem.

This cruelty made her feel insecure for so long then she decided that she will overcome that. She started to be better and heal from cancer and started to take care of her hair. She said, “I decided to be myself and love my hair, no more straitening my hair, no more letting anyone to makesme feel less of myself”.

We at Fashom wants to tell every girl that has a curly hair that curly hair is amazing and you should love it and be proud of it. Don’t let anyone makes you feel bad or that you have a problem.
