Teen Fashion: Denim Weather

I love how there can be different shades and how they can come either in pant, shirt, or even shoe form! Last year I got these denim shoes and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve played around with them. Something else I love about denim is that they can go with just about anything. You can even do denim on denim as long as you play with it right. I looked into how the weather is going to be this week in Georgia and it ranges from sixty degrees to eighty degrees. You can never really tell how hot or cool it’s going to be so I thought back to this outfit. It will sure be convenient for the week because the skirt will keep you cool but the vest will keep you warm depending on the temperature. Something else I would like to point out in this outfit is pattern play. I always hear about people who are afraid to mix patterns such as polka dots and plaid but as you can see in this outfit it truly can work out as long as you do it right. I think it’s always best to push some boundaries and mix it up a little. Sometimes when you experiment with clothes a little you can end up with something super stylish and fun.

Today I created another outfit using one of the trends found on the catwalks of Fall/Winter Fashion Week 2014. One of the main patterns found among the clothing was plaid. As I have stated before I thought that Tommy Hilfiger did the best using the plaid pattern. The way he styled the clothing was just amazing and I loved every piece he put out there. I would definitely not mind wearing his pieces! I also decided to use leather in the outfit as well, the leather is found in the vest over the plaid long sleeve shirt. I made sure to use black, red, white, and blue in the outfit because they were the main colors found among the trends.

This outfit is very unusual and it has a grunge look. I decided to add the leather vest on top of the plaid shirt because it added a cool effect to the outfit. I used a rose cameo on top of the vest because it goes with the color scheme and I have been wanting to work with a cameo for a while. All of the other accessories are black as well. The shoes and purse are leathery like to go along with the vest. I decided to go with the blue and plaid gloves because it added an unexpected twist to the outfit. Who doesn’t like a surprise?

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.
