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.

Trendy Tuesday: The Sweatshirt

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

This past weekend I have been thinking of ways to post more content that you love. Since creating this blog, I have posted different topics and to say the least one of your favorites were complete trend looks. To keep my lovely readers happy, I’ve decided to do “Trendy Tuesday”. Every Tuesday I will create a post on how to style one trend. The post will include a luxury look and a look that’s affordable.

To kick off our first Trendy Tuesday, I will speak about an item everyone has in their closet. The stylish sweatshirt.

Even though this garment is usually associated with lounge clothes, it is definitely in this fall. This simple garment is super easy to style and is perfect because you should already have one in your wardrobe. If not, go and buy one NOW! The sweatshirt has been featured on the runway for Fall 2013, it is a great alternative if you’re tired of sporting knit sweaters. Using the sweatshirt as a large component of your wardrobe for the fall and winter will be easy. It’s a versatile garment and you can style it anyway you’d like. For this trend I have prepared two looks, one with a print and another with just a basic solid pullover sweatshirt.

Look #1: This outfit is perfect for a chilly day. The colors of this look make it easy to transition from day to night, and is perfect for a causal Friday look.

The first look I have created caters to everyone who has a bigger spending budget. This look features a sweater with a bold, yet neutral pattern as the main focus. I loved this sweater because it was a piece that stood out, however you could wear it more than once. I decided to pair this look with a simple pair of black jeans, black booties, and some sunglasses. I loved this outfit because it is an easy way to be casual and comfy, while remaining put together and chic.

Look #2: This look is a little more dressy. The white in this look is a perfect combo for a fall or winter look. This is definitely something you can wear to work or out for drinks with some friends.

The second look I created is perfect for a college student. While in school I understand we have a smaller budget and we need to look put together while staying super comfortable. I am in love with this look because even though it’s super casual and easy to put together, it’s a look that looks polished. For this look I paired a simple sweatshirt with a pair of white jeans and some black chunky boots. The accessories bring some color back into the outfit as well as completes the outfit.

Those are my two looks for todays Trendy Tuesday! After reading this post if you do not have a sweatshirt, go snag one! You will fall in love with how easy these outfits are and how comfortable they are. Any sweatshirt will definitely become a fall and winter essential! I hope you have enjoyed reading this post! Stay tuned for more posts!

Best, Jair xx
