8 Spring Style Trends You Need In Your Wardrobe

We know you find fashion lady’s love your designers, wardrobe, and trends. We’re not exactly mind readers, but thanks to the designers’ Spring ’17 runways, we can paint a pretty clear picture of the coming months in fashion. These looks set the pace for a new season, and it’s going to look a little different from the style world as you know it. Prepare for bolder prints, more frills, and some serious wardrobe disruption. While minimalism has ruled, 2017 is poised to bring some big change to our closets. We did our homework and watched our fashion weeks very carefully to come up with the perfect eight spring trends that are not just perfect for spring, but for every season. If you can rock all eight trends for spring, you are going to be set with your wardrobe for the rest of the year, and let me tell you they are absolutely worth it to take a peak at and try out.

ISN’T IT ROMANTIC // 1

Ruffles, voluminous sleeves, and nods to the Victorian era made Spring’s most covetable dresses decidedly romantic, and a touch more dramatic than your average day dresses.

(1)Erdem Spring 2017, (2)Oscar de la Renta Spring 2017, (3)Fenty x Puma by Rihanna Spring 2017, (4)Alexander McQueen Spring 2017, (5)Preen Spring 2017, (6)Rodarte Spring 2017.

VACATION PRINTS // 2

Spring’s florals are bright, splashy, and on vacation. The saturated, tropical-feeling motifs find their way onto everything, giving you those getaway vibes, even when you’re trapped at home.

(1)Peter Pilotto Spring 2017, (2)House of Holland Spring 2017, (3)Rosie Assoulin Spring 2017, (4)Tibi Spring 2017, (5)Ports 1961 Spring 2017, (6)Altuzarra Spring 2017.

TRACK HAPPY // 3

Fashion’s obsession with athleisure is a staple for Spring, delivering a riff on your favorite sweatpants and track pants. Dress them up or wear them right to the gym; either way, you’ll be right on trend.

(1)Vetements Spring 2017, (2)Fenty x Puma by Rihanna Spring 2017, (3)Markus Lupfer Spring 2017, (4)Isabel Marant Spring 2017, (5)Paul Smith Spring 2017, (6)Versace Spring 2017.

OVEREXPOSED // 4

Come Spring, overexposure will be the new norm, thanks to bra tops and bandeaus putting midriffs on full display. Opt for a little modesty with a sheer top draped over top or a jacket left wide open to show off everything.

(1)Dior Spring 2017, (2)Prada Spring 2017, (3)Bottega Veneta Spring 2017, (4)Fendi Spring 2017, (5)Gucci Spring 2017, (6)Anya Hindmarch Spring 2017.

EARN YOUR STRIPES // 5

The classic print rules for Spring, but it’s got a contemporary update in knits, sheer fabrics, and even asymmetrical cuts. And if you prefer a more traditional look, you might just want to snag new suit separates with the must-have pattern.

(1)Chanel Spring 2017, (2)Monse Spring 2017, (3)Chloé Spring 2017, (4)Erdem Spring 2017, (5)Fendi Spring 2017, (6)Lanvin Spring 2017.

WARDROBE RENEGADE // 6

Rules are meant to be broken, so why wear a button-down tucked in and buttoned up or a bra top underneath your blouse? Designers are begging you to push the envelope with clothes that are meant to be layered unexpectedly and outfits that come deconstructed.

(1)Monse Spring 2017, (2)Carven Spring 2017, (3)Céline Spring 2017, (4)Marni Spring 2017, (5)Ports 1961 Spring 2017, (6)Giambattista Valli Spring 2017.

80’S GLAM // 7

Full sleeves, high shine, and body-conscious fit signal the return of ’80s glam on the runway, ready to pump up the volume in your closet.

(1)Gucci Spring 2017, (2)Tom Ford Spring 2017, (3)Balmain Spring 2017, (4)Elie Saab Spring 2017, (5)Isabel Marant Spring 2017, (6)Preen Spring 2017.

PUNCTUATED IN PINK // 8

Pretty and soft isn’t the way you’ll think of Spring’s pink palette. The color was a designer favorite, punctuating runways with its ironic sweetness or, sometimes, bold, saturated fuchsias.

(1)Givenchy Spring 2017, (2)Bottega Veneta Spring 2017, (3)Céline Spring 2017, (4)Prabal Gurung Spring 2017, (5)Chanel Spring 2017, (6)Delpozo Spring 2017.

Hope you enjoyed our Spring savy trends!

Winter Wardrobe, 5 Pieces For the Season

You know what we love about the seasons changing, and the cold weather coming in? Its not just the holiday spirit, pumpkin spice lattes, and getting to eat as much comfort food as you want. Its also the fall and winter style, our fashionista’s here at Find Fashion conform to a formula of moody colors and a classic coat as our everyday uniforms. However, this year we have noticed a trend. One that us even ready to change up our cold-weather wardrobes a bit. We have been pulling inspiration from the season’s biggest trends, and the bloggers styled fresh new looks using pieces that are not so typical for your everyday winter wear. We wanted to add these trends into our already loved formula to create a new and improved winter wardrobe our readers. So, with the help of some extra trendy bloggers and one of our favorite, Who What Wear Collections, we are showcasing two fun easy-to-wear outfits that you will have on repeat this season, all you need is five simple pieces.

The best thing about these outfits, you’ll probably already have some pieces lined up in your closet. We’re thinking new silhouettes and transformed metallics to really spice up your latte’s, as well as fall inspired florals and of course the beauty of the entire operation, yep you guess it: Velvet. If you haven’t already noticed, velvet is back and in full force. Dark ivory greens, and nocturnal deep blues are the perfect velvet colors to complete your snow season outfits. But don’t take our word for it, here are some babes that are already digging into these trends and exploring there five pieces to wonderland.

VELVET SLIP DRESS

If there’s one item you should be wearing this season, it should be a slip dress, specifically a velvet one. Not only is it on trend and versatile, the luxe fabric makes it super cozy too.

BELL SLEEVE TOPS

Give the term “arm party” a whole new meaning with one of the season’s most playful trends. When your basic top-and-denim combo needs an upgrade, take a cue from the runways and opt for a top with bell sleeves. The silhouette is right in step with the industry’s current obsession with all things ’70s-inspired.

METALLIC SKIRTS

During the holiday season, Find Fashion gravitates toward pieces that are equal parts versatile and festive. A metallic skirt can sometimes be over the top, but do your best to find one that is silver and only has a hint of sparkle, it has potential to be worn year-round.

RE-IMAGINED CARDIGANS

When you think winter fashion, you automatically think of coats. This season, however, we’re leaning on re-imagined styles like long cardigans that mimic details of a traditional coat but has a slimmer silhouette. We are really into layering, but sometimes it’s hard to do so when wearing something more bulky like a coat. An oversize cardigan gives you the same effect and more flexibility when styling a head-to-toe look and layering. Not to mention, you probably already have one of these cardigans laying around in your closet.

FLORAL MIDI DRESSES

Florals don’t have to be relegated to the back of your closet during the winter, just opt for a moodier hue and a longer hemline. Florals in the winter are usually of the forbidden fruit, however a more fall emphasized floral can seriously take the spotlight at your annual holiday party! A darker palette, many even some gold accents and BAM welcome to fall floral season.

We hope you are as into these five pieces for your seasonal wardrobe as we are. Spice up your classic go-to winter look with some of these pieces and be ready to make heads turn at your holiday shenanigans.

An Applause for the Queen B

Thats right, its another winner for the Queen B’s books. Beyoncé is releasing not an album but active wear this coming April 14. Beyoncé’s new active wear brand is one to seriously watch out for. The global superstar teamed up with Tycoon Sir Phillip Green to launch an active wear line better than ever. The stand-alone brand comes in 200 different styles, and will hit 50 countries worldwide, including Topshop, net-a-porter.com, and Hudson Bay. The collection is aimed at women who love to sweat, and equate physical strength with emotional well-being happiness. The collection is said to fit like “a second skin” with tons of built-in support and wicking fabrics that are designed for the long run. The collection is also aimed to perform in and outside of the sports arena, and for any kind of active activities such as yoga stretching or kickboxing. The collection is designed for all body types with sized ranging from XXS-XXL. Though, the team has not publicly spoken out on price points, the collection will be aimed at a high bracket.

Beyoncè released the annoucement with tons of social media posting on Instagram and Twitter, as well as released the youtube video with already millions of views. The video features Beyoncé working out in a park and a gym, with a voiceover by the singer talking about how her daily workouts help her stay balanced, feel good, and kick stress.

“I would wake up in the morning and my dad would come knocking on my door, telling me it’s time to go running,” she says in the video. “I remember wanting to stop, but I would push myself to keep going. “It taught me discipline, and I would think about my dreams. I would think about the sacrifices my parents made for me. I would think about my little sister and how I was her hero. I would look at the beauty around me, the sunshine through the trees. I would keep breathing.” She talks about her fears and that her neighborhood park was the place she could always put them to rest. “Before I hit the stage, I go back to that park. When it was time for me to give birth, I went back to that park. The park became a state of mind. The park became my strength. The park made me who I am. Where’s your park?”

There are three legging shapes, made from a sweat-wicking, non-pilling, double-faced polyamide elastane. The three shapes — identified as the I, the V and the Y — have been designed to enhance a range of body types with signature seaming on each, all meant to elongate and flatter the leg. The core leggings feature inner contour shorts to smooth and support and each rise appears in three lengths, just under the knee; on the calf, and to the ankle. There are tank tops with built-in sports bras, seamless knits and bodysuits — fitted with fishnet sleeves for a glam touch — as well as logo sweatshirts, basketball mesh oversize T-shirts and vests, and three-quarter length parkas. The outerwear pieces have heat-sealed tape bonded holes for headphone wires. The color palette is neutral and slimming, and features cobalt, gray marl and black. There are also digital and reflective prints and embossed patterns in a honeycomb shape. In addition to the Ivy Park logo, the clothing features the number four — the date of Beyoncé, her mother and her husband’s birthdays, as well as the couple’s wedding anniversary. She is married to Shawn Carter, aka Jay Z. The “iv” in ivy is a reference to the Roman numeral four and also to the couple’s daughter’s name, Blue Ivy Carter. WWD broke the news of the collection in October 2014, and it was clear from the start the two partners had much more than a collaboration in mind. They immediately formed a 50-50 joint venture, stand-alone company, Parkwood Topshop Athletic Ltd., with its own staff and design team based in London.

We are so excited to see what this collection has in store, and what it will bring to the fashion world, and for that We Applaud You Mrs. Queen B.

A Rainbow of Fashion

Rainbow

While scanning my favorite fashion forecasting websites, I came across an article from WGSN that inspired me to discuss the importance of color in fashion. As we ready ourselves for a fabulous fashionable summer, it’s vital we pay attention to color. Whether that means knowing what’s trending, what shades compliment each other, or what hues make you stand out in the best way possible, color plays an enormous part in our wardrobe.

If you’ve ever seen a color wheel you’ll know that there is such a thing as complimentary colors. These are colors that are essentially opposites and when paired together, they help to compliment each other. A few examples of these pairings are; red and green, yellow and purple, and blue and orange. Many advertorials use complimentary colors to draw in attention, and create a visually pleasing  picture that people are naturally more likely to stop and read.

In terms of fashion, this can help to create visually stimulating outfits, and style colorful pieces. Summer is the perfect time to play with color and bright patterns. Try pairing bright blue jean shorts with a neon orange sweater, or pick a patterned dress covered in yellow and purple.

In addition to paying attention to complimentary colors, there are color families or groups that you should be familiar with. The two I find the most helpful when it comes to fashion and styling myself, are cold and warm hues. Knowing how to differentiate these two color groups is extremely helpful and can even make or break an outfit. Colder hues include, blues, purples, some greens, greys, and black. Warmer hues are reds, yellows, browns, and white. Although black and white can be switched around, pairing like colors can easily turn a confused outfit into a fashionable one. For example, say you are wearing an orange dress and can’t decide between black or brown boots. Determine what color group the dress is in, then choose your shoes accordingly. (Hopefully you picked brown) This can also be compared to dressing for your natural coloring. Darker skin, eyes, and hair will usually look best in warmer colors such as bright pinks, reds, and greens; whereas a lighter toned person might look better in colder tones such as blues, greys, and purples.

Keeping these few tips in mind, have fun this summer dressing up in bold colors and enjoy standing out from the crowd. The rainbow was meant to be celebrated!

Fashion Myths Busted – Winter Edition

fashionmyths

There are A LOT of fashion faux pas floating around out there… you can’t wear black and navy, no white after labor day, don’t mix your metals…this week we are tackling some of the most common (and most absurd) fashion myths and busting them wide open. Let’s take a gander…

“YOU CAN’T WEAR BLACK AND NAVY”

False! You can absolutely wear black and navy, and in fact it’s one of the most elegant color combinations of all time! The thing you want to steer clear of is looking too dark and flat. Add texture with different fabrics to differentiate the black and navy and try adding an additional color to break it up. Also accessorizing with bold pieces is a great way to add dimension to this dark chic look. Try a metallic belt or some great layering necklaces.

“NO WHITE AFTER LABOR DAY”

This is probably the most absurd myth of all time and though it’s been cleared up for the most part, there are still a few who stubbornly feel the need to follow this “rule”. (ahem, you know who you are) This concept originated in the 1950’s when it was seen as inappropriate to wear white dress shoes after labor day-aka the fall and winter months. Somehow this evolved to clothes as well and now here we are, unable to wear out favorite white button up because it’s December.

Well ladies and gents, this is so not the case. You can wear any color you want all year round, it’s fabrics you need to pay close attention to. In fall in winter, stick with heavier fabrics such as wool, cashmere, velvet because well frankly it’s cold outside. Add texture to a white piece by layering scarves, chunky cardigans, and a great winter hat. The easiest way to wear white is to play with black and white pieces. You can never go wrong with a black and white outfit.

“FLORALS ARE ONLY FOR SPRING AND SUMMER”

Um, no. Florals are for all year round so don’t you worry. This pattern is super easy to incorporate into your fall and winter wardrobe, you just got to pick the darker florals. This means background colors like navy, grey, brown, black, purple etc.. My personal favorite is monochrome florals in shades of grey. This can add a fun pattern to an otherwise dull outfit but still sticks to the “fall color palette”.
