As spring and summer rolls around, it’s all about light weight materials. And as much as I love denim, sometimes it can be a little too heavy for the warmer weather. That’s why the chambray trend is always an awesome alternative. And like any basic, it’s a blank slate. It’s really easy to accessorize and style.
Trends come and go. We know that. But, I can tell you I appreciate the trends that cater to the simplistic side of my personal style. You know I’m not one to overdo it in that department. That’s I why I totally love the plus size minimalist trend that seems to be gaining some speed. I mean, it’s always been around, but the minute spring and summer comes a long, it seems to jump out at me.
Tropical prints are always popular this time of the season. Actually, wrote this post around this time last year. I’ve been wanting to write about it, but I’m barely getting to it now. And the last few couple of days, I’ve been in a planning mode for a special weekend I’m helping to put together in Miami. Which means, I definitely have tropical thoughts in my heart and on my mind. So, I had to put this style trend post together.
I know half of the country is covered in ice and snow right now. Don’t worry my loves. Spring is coming and soon you’ll be running around in your favorite spring trends. Right now I’m all about dresses. Normally, I’m not a dress kind of girl, but today it’s all I can think about. Here are my 10 favorite spring dress trends.
When I look back and realize how far the plus-size fashion industry has come, I can’t help but think of those who fought and helped it evolve. Emme, known as the “first plus-size supermodel,” is one of those people. And she is far from finished. I don’t normally share interviews that I don’t do myself, but I felt like this is one you should read. She opens up about how she got started, her views on the plus-size fashion industry, and what she’s working on.
We all know I’m not the boldest one in the room. But, that’s definitely something I’m working on. And I couldn’t do it with a little help from my friends. It’s a good idea to have some amazing supporters on your side, who are well-versed in creating their own personal style. So, when I have an event to attend, need last-minute styling advice, and am considering mixing prints—who did I call?
It’s no secret that L.A. doesn’t really have crisp fall days or chilly winters. That’s why I can get away with dressing like this in the middle of December. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not really complaining…OK maybe just a little bit. I’m that girl who loves cold winter days. But, I also love being able to wear long kimonos with short dresses and ankle boots. Living Doll Los Angeles sent me their Breezy Kimono (sold out), which I was drooling over since the moment I laid eyes on it.
Shopping online has never been easy, especially when it comes to fit. How many times have your ordered something only to be worried until you try it on? Yeah, probably the story of your lives right? Well, if you haven’t discovered eShakti then you’re missing out! It’s time to talk custom sizing and ready to wear for sizes 0-36W.
