As the year begins, we reflect on all the fashion trends that 2016 brought in. As for 2017, we are excited for new trends to appear! This month’s blog will cover the trends from last year that should die out, and the trends for this year to try out!

FASHION FOR THE HOLIDAYS

The holidays open many opportunities to dress up for the work holiday parties, family gatherings and travel. We want to make sure you know the do’s and don’ts for each occasion.

Thanksgiving is a time to spend with family, eat loads of food and take lots of pictures since the family is all together. You’ll want to wear something comfortable so you have room for all the pies!

REP THE RED AND BLUE

History was made, tears were shed and these boys played one hell of a game on November 2, 2016. The Chicago Cubs were long overdue for a World Series championship, and last night they played their hearts out. For all Chicago fans, you know it has been 108 years since they have won a championship and 71 years since they have even been to the series. We want you to represent your red and blue, but of course fashionably!

FALL AND WINTER MUST HAVE COLORS

It’s the time of year when the air gets crisp, the leaves change color and we add on a few layers to our wardrobe! Fall and winter is such a fun time to mix and match different styles. We are going to cover the colors to add to your closet and make-up trends for the changing seasons!

FASHION AROUND THE WORLD

Fashion is a language that everyone worldwide can understand. You can be in Italy or Australia and a certain dress or handbag  could make a different statement. With this being said, when traveling to different parts of the world, it is good to know what kind of style is popular in the place you are headed.

BOW DOWN TO THE BOW

Who said bows are just for little girls? Bows are making a statement in couture runway items for Fall 2016, especially oversized bows. It is one of the biggest fashion trends this year.

BHAVYJ TAKES ON MANUS X MACHINA

The Met Gala, a highly exclusive fashion event, takes place annually to raise funds for the exhibitions, acquisitions, publications and capital improvements for the Costume Institute.  It is one of the curatorial departments of the museum.   The gala originally created by publicist Eleanor Lambert, has been taking place since 1948.   Anna Wintour, editor of Vogue magazine, has been chair of the event since 1999.  It has been through her dedication and overseeing of the gala that has made it one of the most anticipated parties of the year.

4 HOT SUMMER NAIL SHADES

Summer 2016 is starting off with a bang of color! We have four beautiful colors to keep your nails looking hot and in style.  Along with the colors, we have the perfect outfits to wear accordingly.

Coral is by far my favorite shade for Spring and Summer. It looks great on any skin tone and adds a beautiful pop of color!

THE RISE OF ATHLEISURE WEAR

I’m sure you’ve all seen women out and about, wearing a pair of colored yoga pants or leggings, with a stylish hoodie and some brightly colored neon sneakers. You may be thinking that this is just the new trend for workout apparel, but it actually reflects a growing fashion phenomenon called “athleisure” wear.

WHAT IS THE “TRUE COST” OF FASHION?

Hi everyone! This week, I’m taking a different approach to my blog.  In addition to providing fashion tips, I want to explore other ways to make this blog more impactful for readers.  As a result, I’d like to discuss a terrific documentary I recently watched, entitled “The True Cost.” The film discusses the phenomenon of “fast fashion” and the negative impact it has had on human rights and the global environment.
