5 Spring Trends To Try

on April 16, 2018

Now that warmer temps and longer, sunnier days are here for good, Spring trends are in full bloom! Even if you stick with traditional styles and trusty basics, we think each season’s trends are fun to watch and try out if one piques your interest.

We rounded up five spring trends we’ve noticed recently. And just for fun, let us know what you think of them in the comment section below.

Rainbow Prints. We’re seeing rainbows everywhere this season! From big bursts of color, like the pencil skirt pictured above, to subtle but cheerful pins (like this one), we think anyone can give this colorful trend a try!

Velvet Sandals. A block heel or flat velvet sandal is great for the office or daytime activities and perfect for parties and nights out! Versatility is key when incorporating new trends into your wardrobe so you get the most wear out of your new pieces.

Button-Down Dresses (with new details). Whether it’s off-center buttons or off-the-shoulder necklines, these subtle and beautiful updates to the button-down dress have caught our attention lately.

Statement Earrings. Get ready to make a statement…with your earrings! Some are colorful and funky. Some come in super fun shapes and sizes. Don’t say we didn’t warn you when everyone wants to know where you scored your newest pair of statement earrings.

Dad Sneakers. They are The Ugly Shoe Trend’s latest star, and maybe you whispered, “But why?” when you set eyes on these chunky sneakers, but they’ve gained more and more popularity over the past year or so. While we’re certainly not strangers to The Ugly Shoe Trend—shout out to our dear old friends, Birkenstocks—we’re still questioning if a pair of dad sneakers deserve a spot in our closet. What do you think? Do you have a pair of dad sneakers?!

Ok, now it’s your turn to let us know what you think of these trends. Curious to hear your thoughts!

The Power of Pants (A Grammy’s Tale)

on February 1, 2018

Did any of our Fashomistas catch the Grammys?! There was a lot controversy, a lot of talent, a lot to celebrate, but most importantly there was a lot of fashion and personal style! We love gorgeous evening gown, but there is just something powerful about a pants suit! There were several women on the red carpet this year that ditched the traditional dress routine and decided to embrace the powerful statement that pants or the lack thereof make!

Some of my favorite looks of the night included Eve, Anna Kendrick, Cyndi Lauper, Rapsody, Ava Max, Alessia Cara, Andra Day, Janelle Monae, Sibley Scoles and Erin Lim. Most of these women hail from the music world so it stands to reason that they would march to the beat of their own drum with their personal style! The fashion statements ladies made ranged from neutral to monochrome to patterns.

Now maybe you’re thinking, “Yes these looks are nice, but how do I bring these looks to life in my everyday life?” Fashom is here to help you with that. Here are some great trends and tips that you can follow in your everyday life whether you are a corporate woman, a fashionista, or a stay at home mom.

  1. Keep it neutral. You can’t go wrong with a neutral color. Neutrals are the backbone of every woman’s wardrobe. Take it from Alessia Cara. She looks like quite the casual chic chick in her Chucks and Chinos. If you’re a corporate woman you may want to keep it neutral, but don’t let it take away your style like Alessia.
  2. Ditch the pants. If you’re a stay at home mom you might like this next one. Check out Andra Day and Erin Lim. The suit jacket is there and we are loving it, but where are their pants?! Suit jackets as dresses! Talk about a life hack! Rushing to get ready for your date with the hubby? Forget the pants because you’re going to be styling and profiling tonight!

 

  1. 3. Monochrome head to toe. This was the style in the early 2000s, and it’s been making its way back for the last couple of years. Rapsody and Sibley Scoles did it right. They are in colors that fit their complexions, and they are popping! This style could work for the corporate woman, the fashionista, as well as the stay at home mom!

4. Patterns, patterns, and you guessed it more patterns! Eve, Anna Kendrick, Ava Max, Cyndi Lauper, and Janelle Monae all rocked different patterns on their pants and rocked it oh so well! If you are a fashionista and want to make a statement, then this is the look for you!

Not so traditional? Love to make a statement? You may find the power in pants! Need help finding a style that’s right for you? Download Fashom App, and check out our new stylist feature! Our stylists will personally style you and have the pieces sent to your doorstep!

Now that’s powerful!

Golden Globe MeToo Statement

on January 10, 2018

If you’re a Fashomista you already know that fashion says, “Me too!” (I like that too) whereas style says “Only me!” (Only I like this) Fashion makes a statement before you ever even open your mouth. The celebrities of the Golden Globes made both a fashion and political statement, by wearing all black everything to stand in solidarity bringing awareness to sexual harassment and assault in the Hollywood community and scene.

In October of 2017, the hashtag #MeToo went viral in the wake of allegations of sexual assault allegations against the infamous Harvey Weinstein. The hashtag was utilized in efforts to show just how rampant misogynistic behavior and tendencies are everywhere; it was meant to make everyone aware that sexual assault is a problem and can happen to anyone (women and even men too!) Celebrities shared their Hollywood horror stories of sexual misconduct and encouraged the everyday woman to share as well. Tarana Burke, a woman of color and civil rights activist, is the creator of the hashtag and wanted it to be a source of empathy for women who had been survivors of an assault. Alyssa Milano popularized the hashtag via Twitter when the Weinstein allegations first came to light. Oprah included in her Cecil B. de Mille Award acceptance speech that she wanted to honor the women that had endured years of abuse. Oprah’s speech moved the audience to many rounds of applause and a standing ovation. I’m sure it touched the hearts of little girls and women of color around the world.

Fashion again is a statement. Style is YOUR statement. Celebrities donned some decadent pieces at this year’s 75th annual Golden Globes. The red carpet seemed draped in black. Black is the new statement color. Black is the new black. Black says here I am. Black says strength. Black says unity. The celebrities of the Golden Globes made their fashion statement, but each individual made their statement with their own style. All kinds of trends were relevant for this red carpet scene: sheer, pantsuits, lace, princess gowns, sleek and simple, above the ankle/knee dresses, pops of color, sparkle, texture, and of course none other than statements.

Here are some outfits that we created from the inspiration the celebrities of the Golden Globes gave us here at Fashom.

Bare it all with sheer black, but keep it fun with a little sparkle in your heels and accessories.

Get your shine on and add a little pop of color to it too. If you want to be extra fab add a little fur and a statement heel.

Keep it sleek and simple with a pantsuit or jumpsuit and a single sole heel. Add a little bling to some balance.

Be edgy with this leather look. The fur heels add a little luxe to the look. Break up the monotony with a color blocked clutch.

If all black everything is just up your alley, and if you like to make a statement download the Fashom App (www.fashom.com) for more outfit inspo. Check out our new stylist feature if you want a style that makes YOUR statement.
