Yesterday I wrote about the trends I noticed on fashion week fall/winter 2014. I want you guys to be aware of the trends that are coming this next fall and winter, plus starting now allows some of you to stock up on clothing that you may need for those trends. It’s better to get them while they’re not on trend. Yesterday I talked about the top 5 repeated colors, patterns, and fabrics. I also decided to talk a bit about how I noticed that many designers used cropped tops in their collections.

Today I wanted to take the time to talk about capes because I noticed them a lot on the runways. I’m not talking about capes you might find on super heroes, but stylish ones that vary in all shapes and sizes. There were some capes that I looked at and thought of the show Reign. The women in that show are often found wearing capes, and some of the ones on the models looked like the ones you might find on the show. There were all sorts of lengths, there were some that touched the ground and there were others that barely passed the shoulders. All sorts of fabrics were used to create all these different capes. Some of the capes can be worn with a more casual outfit, others can be used for more formal events. How cool would it be to walk into a party with a nice dress and a cape that flows right behind you? Maybe people will start seeing capes as more of a way to style clothing instead of only being used for costumes. A girl with a teen fashion blog can only wish. 🙂

Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2014 Trends

Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2014 Color Trends

Fashion Week recently ended, so as a teen fashion blogger I feel I have to share the trends that came about among the designers. I looked for many things that might have been popular among all the collections shown. Today I’m going to talk about the three main categories that stood out to me. These categories are colors, patterns, and the main fabrics that they used.

This year’s fall colors are black, gray, white, red, and navy blue. The main color that was used among the designers was black. I made sure to include one example of each color at the top. I also wrote down the designers that created that certain outfit so that if you wanted to, you could go ahead and take a look at what else they made. I loved these colors and I believe that these outfits in those colors are just amazing.

Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2014 Pattern Trends

As for patterns, this Fashion Week I noticed a lot of plaid, among the collections. Tommy Hilfiger to me honestly did the best with plaid. I’m not usually into wearing sporty clothing, but I could make an exception for his line. All of his clothes were to die for. I also noticed a few different floral patterns, I thought that was pretty interesting for a fall collection. There were many different collections that had polka dots or stripes in them. Leopard print was pretty big among the clothing as well, I loved this dress by Badgley Mischka that’s at the top. Between the slit in the front and the leopard pattern, it was a fun dress yet elegant at the same time.

Fashion Week fall/Winter 2014 Fabric Trends

As for the fabrics, I’m really glad I have a good amount of faux leather clothing in my closet because I’m going to need it for the fall. It felt like there was leather in every show, it was a leather invasion! Fur was really big as well, there were all sorts of colors and prints on the catwalk which was really cool to see. I felt like Betsy Johnson did the best with the colored fur, the colors were so weird yet cool at the same time. Fur accessories were very big too, I can’t tell you all the times that I saw a model carrying around a fur purse. Shiny fabrics and metallic fabrics were really popular as well among the designers. Sheer was really big as well, I saw multiple dresses, skirts, and shirts that had sheer and they looked lovely. I’m honestly a fan of the sheer fabric, I think that as long as you have a tank top under it can add a cool look. Plus a lot of sheer clothing flows well and I like that.

Even though this gets a little out of the categories, I wanted to make sure that I mentioned that I saw a lot of the models wearing crop tops. They were styling them in all sorts of cool ways. There were models that wore crop tops under a nice sheer shirt, some wore them over shirts, under blazers, under shirts that have a lot of cut outs in them, and much more ways. I found it interesting to see how the designers styled the crop tops in weird ways that I have not seen before. I know that I’m not very comfortable with crop tops cause I’m not big on showing skin, yet I am open to try the different ways to use one.

For The Love of Fashion Series: LOL (Lots of Love)

Everyone has a different meaning of love, we all like to define it in different ways. On Dictionary.com love is defined as “a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person”. My definition for love is deeper than the meaning that Dictionary.com gives. Love to me is the biggest thing out there, without love you can’t live life to the fullest. Love can make a person, but it can also break one. Love is essential to my every day life, without it, I feel incomplete. No one can know the true definition of love unless they have experienced it themselves. You can’t go off what other people say because love may mean something different to them compared to your definition. I believe that love is shown through actions, these actions can be small or big.

Love can be small things that make you happy and feel special. I experience love from my parents when they kiss me good night every night. I experience love from my sister when she tries to make me laugh when I’m feeling down. Love is when you can make a person smile constantly. When you are willing to do anything just to cheer them up, even if it means that they have to make a fool of themselves. Love is when the person wants to make things easier for you and help you out with small tasks as much as possible. My mom told me that love is when my dad brings her coffee every morning. Love is when they wait to laugh when you fall down after they have helped you up and made sure you were ok. Love is when someone is willing to give up some of their food for you, I don’t know about you but I would feel super special if someone was willing to give me their last cookie. Some of these small actions may seem dumb, but it’s always the smaller things that make up bigger things.

Love can also include a lot of big things that may be performed among the people who love you, or things you do for the people you love. Love can be shown through trust. Trusting one another can show love because you know that the person is there for you . Love is when you can look at the person you love and thank the heavens that you have them. When I am apart from my parents for a long time, I start to miss them and want them by my side. Love is when you can’t go long periods of time without talking or seeing that one person. Love is when you can be yourself around that person because you know they won’t judge you. Love is when you will do anything to keep the other out of danger and harm. Love is what completes a human being.

I found this outfit at Marshall’s one day when I was shopping and thought this was a great dress for a Valentine’s Day date. I thought this dress was perfect because it wasn’t too much red and pink. People like to think that you need to go overboard with the red and pink in their outfits to create a Valentine’s Day outfit. I thought this dress was appropriate because it had red and pink roses (red and pink combos were all over F/W 2014 Fashion Week). I used a dark blue flat to attract more attention to the dress. I used pink gem hoop earrings and thin red bracelets. I didn’t want to over do it with the jewelry because I wanted all eyes on the dress. I used a darker lip color (appropriate for a teenager) because of all the dark colors going on the outfit. You don’t have to over do it on the typical Valentine’s Day colors, all you need to do is incorporate a little in and you have the perfect outfit.
