My Top 20 H&M Picks

I  really love H&M. They carry amazing clothes that are, for the most part, very affordable.  What I love the most is that they have a lot of simple pieces that can be worn on numerous occasions as well as clothes that highlight the seasons’ biggest trends. I was admiring what they’re selling right now and picked some of my favorites to share with you.

For a night out when you want to show off your inner badass…

Messy Middle-parts

Why do we love middle parts? It’s probably because not everyone can pull them off, or so they think. A lot of people are just too afraid to try something so minor that makes such a drastic change, but that’s why I love it.

As each season goes by, more and more ladies are letting their locks flow freely and parting their hair right down the center of their heads. It completely changes your look. Middle parts can easily be formal with just a little styling, or for more casual outings you can go the easy route and wear your hair as-is.

With all the variations, the messy middle part won me over this season. It’s just so easy! Just part you hair, tousle it a little, use a beach spray, and add a few waves for texture. It  makes you look like a bohemian goddess from the seventies, and who doesn’t want that?

Lets take a look at some familiar faces rockin the middle part…

It’s an easy look, and there’s so many ways to wear it. If you’re afraid of changing it up, I highly recommend you step out of your comfort zone. A change in your part can completely change the styling of your outfit and could be that finishing touch you need.

Spring 2014 Trend: If You Liked It, Then You Shoulda Put a Print On It

Prints electrify your outfit. They give an exciting, eye-catching touch, which is probably why so many designers wanted it on their runways.

There were so many beautiful patterns and prints gracing the runway, that I just have to pay homage. Some of my favorite patterns are floral and the ever-so-popular marble print (at least popular this season). Geometrics, stripes, landscapes, randomness, I don’t care what print it is. Just wear it, because this season, you can.

Wild prints can be seen and worn everywhere. There’s endless ways to incorporate them into your outfit. Don’t be afraid to try something out of your comfort zone, because that’s where the magic happens.

Spring 2014 Trend: Fringe Frenzy

Fringe is one of my absolute favorites. Maybe it’s my inner flower child, but it’s just so free and flowing. I love everything about it. It just makes me want to move.

Luckily, I’m not the only one who loves it. Many variations of fringe were seen on the runways. Its flowing glory was showcased in all different fabrics, colors, and patterns.

You can never forget the accessories. Purses with fringe and/or tassels are one of my favorite ways to rock this look.

I apply this trend to my style a little differently, because I don’t live on a runway or on the pages of Vogue. I love the bohemian feel of fringe. I love it flowing long from my jackets and kimonos. I love a good a long fringe skirt that follows me as I walk, and I just love the movement of the tassels as the wind blows past me.

Whether you dress it up or dress it down, fringe can add so much personality to any outfit. If a lot of fringe is too much for you remember, accessories can always add a perfect little touch.

Get some fringe and “get on the bus.”

Spring 2014 Trend: Whiteout

It’s everywhere.

White.

All-white.

There’s something so clean and crisp about one of the most popular trends that hit the runway for Spring 2014.

This look brings three words to mind:

Clean, refined, and elegant.

Most of the all-white looks are combined with other popular trends like sheer material, cut outs, lace, and long skirts and dresses.

Let’s take a closer look at some all-white attire from some of my favorite collections for this season…

This has to be one of my favorite trends, because it’s simple yet so chic. Layers of all-white will have you feeling like a bride to be, without the commitment.

So bust out all that white you’ve kept stored since Labor Day, and bring some brightness back into your wardrobe.
