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. 🙂

For the Love of Fashion Series: Valentine’s Day School Outfits

Valentine's day teen outfits teen fashion blog
Next week a well-known holiday is coming around, Valentine’s Day. Some people dread this holiday and others take the day to appreciate the people they love. I love Valentine’s Day because I’m a lover not a hater. Today I’m kicking off my Valentine’s Day series For the Love of Fashion and will continue to add Valentine’s day related posts throughout the week. This series will give you ideas on what to get for your special person, what to do that day, and of course tips on what to wear. Something that I struggle on every year is what I will be wearing to school that day. I always try to look special on Valentine’s Day, I have never had a boyfriend but I do like giving a good impression. I decided to help out you guys as well, I know girls have the same problem with trying to find something appropriate to wear to school. I came up with four different outfits to give each type of girl a choice. For girls who want to dress more elegant that day, the light pink outfit on the far left is perfect. The soft color palate used and modest clothing screams elegance. Girls that want to dress romantic and flirty can go with the magenta dress with the polka dot shirt under as that bow shouts “I’m girly”. Some girls have a more sporty personality and want to dress comfortably so I created an outfit with the green and orange sweater to keep that comfort. For girls that prefer a more grunge look, I created the outfit on the far right so that they can stay in their comfort zone, yet dress appropriately for that day. I know that if I were to pick an outfit out of these choices I would either go for the elegant one because I like to dress modest, or the romantic one for the spirit of the holiday. Which outfit would you choose, and why?
