Summer Must-Have Trends

on July 10, 2019

Summer is at its peak and so is the fashion that falls behind the hot weather. We have been on the hunt for the most popular trends that have been circulating this season and we have found them. We have similar styles here at Fashom that you can easily try out in your own box. These styles are perfect for ALL body types and look amazing on everyone. Read below for a quick little recap on what trends are skyrocketing this summer:

1. Palazzo Pants

The ultimate summer bottoms… next to shorts. Slouchy trousers are super comfortable. You can dress them up for work, wear them to a party, and even stroll on the boardwalk in these. They’re super versatile and are the best cover ups for the warmer seasons. Palazzo pants give you room to breathe and are not restricting at all.

2. Maxi Dresses

The maxi dress. It’s the staple piece for the summer and almost everyone needs to have one in their wardrobe. It’s aerated, gives you room to grow, and is super stylish for all occasions. For the summertime, you need something versatile and the maxi dress is that option.

3. Bucket Hats

Seemingly and surprisingly, the bucket hat is making a comeback. What used to be known as the “fisherman’s” hat is now branching off into the fashion world. Bucket hats have been the reigning supreme in accessories for this summer and it is an ultimate must-have to complete your summer look.

4. 80’s Flare

Similar to the 90’s making an appearance in 2019, the 80’s are also pulling through. It’s not necessarily the baggy pants or loose fitted blouses, but just the colors and silhouettes in general have been super popular. Tucking your shirt into your pants and pulling off complimentary and primary colors in one outfit has been super popular. Also, denim on denim as well as mini skirts/dresses are creeping their way through this summer. Wearing different shades of denim all throughout your outfit is a great way to blend the 80’s into your style. As for mini skirts and dresses, the shorter the better. During the summer it gets blazing hot, so women have been getting away with bringing “mini’s” back.

5. Knit Tank

The ultimate summer style is boho. Crochet pants, knit tops, and kimonos have always been making appearances through the summertime. Knit tops are a must have and they work perfectly for all body types. Pair them with palazzo pants, a bucket hat, and a pineapple and you’re good to go!

The Best Winter Styles for Curvy & Plus Sized Figures

on February 11, 2019

Curvy women are killing it in the styling game! Body positivity is one of the most important qualities that a woman can have. You were born with the perfect body, so you might as well flaunt it! One of Fashom’s main mottos within the brand is body positivity and self love, and we aspire to share this with every woman. Before winter comes to an end, catch the styles that are trending and perfect for plus sized women.

1. Faux Fur

Faux fur is everywhere, AND it is cruelty free, which is even better. Fur vests, fur coats, fur scarves, and fur cardigans have been strutted across all street styles, and they specifically look flawless on curvy women. It is a well-rounded piece that can easily dress up an outfit or dress down an outfit. Shown above, there are so many different ways to wear fur.

2. Long Dresses

Long dresses elongate the figure, and hides all of the spots that us curvy women want to keep hidden. They also give that curvature silhouette that extenuates the parts of the body we don’t like. Long dresses are fun and come all the way down to the ankles where you can pair your favorite booties or heels with the outfit.  They make curvy and plus sized women stand out.

3. Trenchies

Trench coats are long, stylish, and fashionable – they never go out of season and will always be in style. These beauties look amazing on plus sized women and also keep you warm throughout these brutal cold seasons. Monochromatic, color blocking, patterns, and different tie-ups are many ways to show off these classic coats.

4. Monochromatic

Monochromatic colors sound boring, but not when they are used correctly. Monochromatic colors keep the silhouette elongated and the figure nice and fitted. Like long dresses, monochromatic outfits hide what you wish to cover up, and induces a lovely shape to the body.

5. Knee High Boots

Knee high boots will always be sexy, sophisticated, and fun all in one. They are seductive enough to make a statement, but professional enough to stay relevant in the workplace. Knee high boots spice up ANY outfit and bring confidence to the figure of the look. Anyone would agree that walking in knee high boots would make them feel more sensual, proud, and confident.

6. Plaids, Prints, and Patches, Oh My!

Stripes elongate the body, plaid brings curvature, and prints bring a fun and snarky look to the appearance. Plaids, prints, and patches are so fun to mix and match with and they seemingly keep repeating throughout each season. A nice plaid poncho, elongated striped jumpsuit, and spotted tench coat are fun ways to discover your printed style.

7. Hats

Fedora’s, berets, or cloche’s, hats are a staple piece and put together the whole outfit. Hats are amazing because there’s one for every occasion and they definitely stand out among other accessories. Whether it be a baseball cap, sunhat, or knit hat, if you think about it, hats can go with any type of outfit. Once you find the right hat for your face, you’ll know.

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.
