Metallic and iridescent pieces are going to be hot this spring and summer. If you’re not ready to go all out on the statement piece, it’s easy to incorporate this trend into your shoe collection. “Loafers” weren’t necessarily an item that I would reach for while shopping. However, designers are revamping the look of loafers with a modern minimalistic design. These puppies are definitely a staple every wardrobe should have! Embracing this trend will definitely vamp up your work wardrobe and will translate well during nightlife as well. I’m obsessed with this trend because it’s so easy to embrace and it’s super fun. I purchased the forever 21 rose gold loafers and I love them!! They bring so much personality to a look, whether it’s casual or professional. Below are some options and different designs that will help you embrace this trend. When reaching for a metallic or iridescent shoe you don’t always have to go with the typical gold, rose gold or silver. This trend also comes in super fun shades like magenta and teal, so it’s easy to choose something your comfortable with and something that will compliment your style. Below are two options on how to style your new funky loafers.

Corner Collection by Warby Parker

Sunglasses and glasses are always a staple no matter what season you’re in. Maybe you want to buy sunnies for the fall or ditch your contacts for the new school year. If you’re someone like me, I have a hard time finding a sleek and chic pair of sunnies that are absolutely perfect and flexible to wear year round. Finding the perfect pair of sunnies or everyday glasses lies in the shape in the frame and if it’s flattering for your face shape. If you fall into that category, I am pleased to announce that Warby Parker has released the Corner Collection today.

The Corner Collection experiments with traditional shapes with unique shades of horn-inspired acetate and stainless steel. The collection consists of five new frames—Hutton, Topper, Goodney, Teddy, and Quentin. Each of these frames have a really cool aesthetic, yet gives a classic and effortless vibe. Each of the styles come in two new hues as well—Rhubarb and Quartz. These two colors are perfect and flattering for the warm and cooler months as well.

I’ve recently come to terms that a lovely classic cat eye looks great on me. The Goodney has a cat eye shape, yet it is revamped in a way. This frame will bring together and polish any look. The Goodney readers would look amazing for someone who’s going back to school or for someone who wants to revamp their look. A stylish pair of readers or everyday glasses will start your school year or a job on the right foot. I centered this look around the Goodney glasses, keeping it simple, yet classic and trendy. I’m in love with the oversized coat trend, so I thought this grey Purity coat from Weekday was perfect. To complete the look I also opted for a white Slit Blouse from Weekday, Paisie Peg Leg Trousers from John Lewis, Miu Miu sneakers, and a Mulberry Mini Cara Delevingne Nappa backpack.

Three Irresistible Summer Trends

Summer is the perfect time to try your favorite looks from Fashion Week. Some of the biggest trends for summer range from all white and crop tops to pinstripes and shiny fabrics. There are some repeat offenders, but then there are also some trends that will take your style to the next level. Instead of splurging on summer trends that tend to repeat, take a chance with some trends that are out of your comfort zone and trends that will elevate your personal style.

When I first saw the Slip Dress trend on the runway I fell in love. I love that there are so many different styles and lengths to this look. It can truly vamp up the sex appeal and femininity of a look. This slinky dress can also give a beautiful silhouette that can be complimented with bold earrings or a statement necklace. In this look I loved the structure of this blush T by Alexander Wang silk slip dress. I loved the neckline, which added some additional coverage for the shorter hemline.   To keep the dress the main focal point, I kept the rest of the look very simple. I loved the rose gold detail and deep sapphire gems in these Anton Heunis spike ear cuffs. To add a little more color I paired the look with a navy Foley + Corinna framed flap cross body bag; it looked beautiful and complimented the deep navy in the earrings. To finish off the look I paired a basic nude/vanilla patent flat sandal.

I’ve always been a fan of bold prints, especially because bold prints have the potential to elevate your whole look and wardrobe. As a person who wears black frequently, including a bold print in a look can add some color and personality. A bold print is a trend that can be easily incorporated into a look or wardrobe. This trend gives to the flexibility to wear a bright and bold dress or sport a bright clutch as your focal point. As said before I love black, so I decided to take baby steps with this look. The focal point of this look is a TOPSHOP leaf print crop top. I liked this piece because the palm tree styled leaves were a perfect fit especially for the summer. I also loved the brightness of the leaves that contrasted against the black base of the top. To play along with the green in the top I paired this look with green leather Clare V. Maison clutch. I thought it went well with the top since the rest of the look is black. To complete the look I paired the top and clutch with a black L.K. Bennett Jodie pencil skirt, black Schutz Fiorenza heels, black Miu Miu round-frame sunnies, and a pair of  EF Collection diamond earrings.

Shiny Fabrics-GoldOne of my favorite trends for this season is shiny fabric. Wearing garments that sparkle and shine are great for a night out on the town with your girls, a fabulous date, or even a casual everyday look. It’s easy to incorporate a shiny garment into your look when you’re dressing up, yet it can be a little more difficult picking something for an everyday look. Toning down that statement garment can be done with a sweatshirt or t-shirt paired along with sneakers, flats or sandals. When I saw this Givenchy gold silk skirt I fell in love. I loved the structure and volume it created while flattering your shape with the clinched waist and belt. I thought it would be the perfect foundation for a casual look. To give this glam skirt the perfect casual vibe, I paired it with a white Kenzo Paris cropped t-shirt. The hint of yellow in the t-shirt went well it with the bold skirt. To finish off the look I paired this outfit with a pair of black Acne pascal sunnies, a black 3.1 Phillip Lim lambskin clutch, and black Common Project t-strap sandals.
