Be trendy in a lace up way


Dare the inner rebel in you by trying the lace-up vogue, which happens to be this year’s underrated trend. This is big on spring runways and carried well enough, even during fashion galas and awards night.

Who can ever forget the buzz Kate Hudson’s gown made during this year’s Golden Globes? That is a flawless translation of how the lace-up trend can give a seductive vibe to every outfit.


The lace-up trend might not be as big on off-the-street fashion, but look closely into this trend and realize that this is actually a double tap style. I can’t help but remember corsets whenever this style is shown.

It is like getting a bit of corset on any lace-up garment and accessories that emanate sexiness and class. Imagine yourself exuding the sultry Latina vibe that’s well translated in the movie Zorro.

Essentially, lace-up fashion brings us to certain places and memories that speak subtle allure and explicit forms.

With the prevalence of music festivals, people who consider themselves young and the general fest-going populace have been noisy all over Instagram and Twitter with a makeshift fad that would soon and inevitably hit the realm of fashion.

Aside from the fact that music festivals are also treated as venues for fashion extravaganzas, the youth have always expressed their creativity and style whenever there’s an opportunity for them to.


We have witnessed it all–from the obfuscating hair styles, noticeable contrasts in color, the larger-than-life fashion sense and the sheer megalomania; all of these we eagerly wait for whenever a huge music festival finishes. Just recently, hordes of Instagram posts have been circulating online about a hair trend that’s becoming more famous as time goes by.

Are we really ready to play with the use of metals and the like? Behold as you witness hair metal braids come to life, and yes, you’d definitely be hooked. The hair-metal trend is as simple as incorporating metal pieces or trinkets into your usual braids. Normally hash-tagged as ‘hair metal’, more and more girls are supporting the trend by posting photos of them wearing the fad.

With the recent FYF Festival held in California, hair metal has all been abloom as hairstyle and hair care outfit Bleach London weaved a couple of metal trinkets onto the hairs of female fest goers.


Hair metal braiding involves metal, first and foremost, injected with creativity by putting on other types of materials such as colorful ribbons, hair yarns, cutesy metal charms and even assortments of small jewelry.

The resulting effect is definitely worth the risk as youth look even better with all these chunks of metal weaved onto their heads. True enough, kids would always be kids and it’s a good way of channeling their creativity.


Some of the known materials used for this fad are hair rings and hair twisters, which are rather accessible and affordable for everyone to purchase.

One of the many ways of incorporating metal into your hairstyle is to style your hair in a ginger coil, and cover it in gold-plated yarn which defies the usual braiding system that everyone remembered.

The hair tapestry under this latest trend has seen promise in being used by the fashion industry in general, and are rumored to be used for fashion shows and runways this coming autumn.

The edgy and creative resulting look of hair metal braiding is something that youth should be proud of, and it is with high hopes that we’d be seeing this specific craze in many music festivals to come.

Pantone’s Spring Colors and the Concept of Disconnect

pantone spring colors (2)

To succinctly quote Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, an established company which is notorious for trendsetting specific colors or sets of hues every year, “Colors this season transport us to a happier, sunnier place where we feel free to express a wittier version of our real selves,” in relation to the recently released palettes that would dominate the world of style and fashion for 2016.

Pantone Color Institute gravitated towards colors that speak of disconnection from the seemingly addictive world of, and they wanted fashion authorities to lean on hues that are pleasing and calming to the eye. This institute has never failed in revealing trends that people should follow, and this year, the world of fashion will be rocked with a wide array of choices that are contrasting, mild and natural.

pantone spring colors (1)

Fashion-savvy individuals should look for colors that are unisex in concept. Colors for 2016 would break borders and go beyond societal norms on sex and gender partition.

The chosen colors of Pantone would definitely be a wild mix of reds, greens and blues, which will definitely shout creativity, optimism, comfort and downright curiosity.

Huge fashion brands and clothing companies take color seriously, as this is a vital component in ensuring that their proposed type of garment would be a success to their buyers. Color trends should be strictly met, and this has been an on-going phenomenon since time knows when.

pantone spring colors (4)

Some of the colors that will be prevalent this coming spring would lean on rose quartz, peach echo and serenity. These colors are soft to the vision, reminiscent of a serene sunset, a reddened cheek or a calming luminescence.

This set of colors is nominated since the colors want to provoke human beings to always go back to nature when they are tired of the chaotic present time. Serenity, specifically, would direct people into experiencing a void that would soothe the mind and calm the spirit.

On to more exciting palettes come snorkel blue, buttercup and limpet shell. Snorkel blue and limpet shell are both derived from the blue family, just revamped with more energy and life. The striking quality of the aforementioned colors would transport you to a dream vacation and being in touch with the sea.

It exudes both a very playful vibe that knows no rest, and this can definitely result in a finished fashion ensemble that’s bold yet reserved at the same time. Buttercup, on the other hand, reminds us of bright, sunny days and the refreshing heat that summer brings. Definitely a head-turning color, buttercup will give designers a joyous time of using the palette for a more exciting feel and usability.

pantone spring colors (3)

Some other colors that the Pantone Color Institute released include the neutral color lilac gray, which is a distinct member of the gray shade. Lilac gray will evoke the free-spirited aura that’s been lurking within you and channel out a fashion ensemble that’s plump, sleek and sharp.

Though playing within the limits of black and white, the lilac gray shades will come-off as strong and weak at the same time, certainly turning heads as you walk by. Colors iced coffee and green flash would be Pantone’s homage to nature as these colors speak of wood and flora.

The openness and risk found in both of the colors would be something that a fashion addict would be delighted to play with.

Push Thy Elegance by Donning Turquoise


Yes, girls have been acquainted with accessorizing using gems of all kinds. Pearls have been known to be the most fashionable of all as we have witnessed this precious stone adorning the best brands, not just as an accessory, but infused on dresses, bags, wallets and even shoes.

But occasionally, the frequent use of this vintage stone can look boring or tiresome, and girls’ inner desire to always stand-out makes them lean onto alternatives that will definitely work, one way or another.

Nowadays, one of the most famous stones beautifying a bland formal outfit, or bringing out a pop of color to a seemingly plain ensemble is the mesmerizing power of turquoise, a gem that’s just emanating a spunk of attitude and fashionable character.

Donning Turquoise

Turquoise is commonly bluish-green in color and unlike other stones, is something that exudes regalia and sophistication. It is never difficult to acquire accessories made up of turquoise as more and more jewelers and fashion designers incorporate it the same way as its gem kin.

We can now purchase turquoise as the core material for earrings; headbands, necklaces, rings and armbands, and women don’t seem to be complaining.

The fashion planet has associated turquoise as a part of some of today’s style icons’ mantra such as Cher and singer Jimi Hendrix.

Fashion experts have concluded that turquoise is something that all girls, and even boys, should possess in the event that there will be a dire need to pump up a style or put excitement in one’s failing decisions in styling.

Definitively, the turquoise gem has found its way to the upper echelons of the fashion pyramid, and is now being regarded as a versatile and refreshing tool to bring out the fashionable alter ego in you.

Turquoise shouts of color and usually, this is a huge issue to women wearing it incorrectly. Fashion gurus have come to conclude that if you want a turquoise fancy, keeping it to a minimum is always best.


In an office setting, you must remember that turquoise should be accompanied with the most minuscule pieces and contrasting hues for you to avoid looking like you seek too much attention.

Play turquoise as your main color core, wearing a simple necklace with this gem over a white top can already give you a stylish finish.

The sheer eye-grabbing hue of turquoise is something that you need to invest your clothes’ colors on—always pick a shade that would make the accessory float, such as blacks, whites, neutrals and dark blues.

While it is your prerogative to play around with whatever colors you wants to pair it with, doing it safely is still the best bet.


Textures would also be of great value when turquoise is added to them, so don’t ever be afraid of pairing it with denims and cashmeres.

While there’s a rule for using dark-toned colors with turquoise, you can wear it smartly by picking the correct lighter shade and staying within the limits of neons.

Turquoise can also be worn adeptly with wedding gowns and formal dresses as it gives you that feeling of elegance, but remembers to wear just one piece at a time.

If ever you want to emulate celebrities like Eva Mendes, Sofia Vergara, Cate Blanchett and Heidi Klum with that turquoise bangle, bracelet or ear drop earrings, just go ahead and wear it with confidence using the tips stated above.

Style crushing Jenners

LAS VEGAS, NV - MAY 17: Models Kendall Jenner (L) and Kylie Jenner speak onstage during the 2015 Billboard Music Awards at MGM Grand Garden Arena on May 17, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada. (Photo by Larry Busacca/BMA2015/Getty Images for dcp)

We have seen them blossom into wonderful ladies right in front of our very eyes. These two young ladies together with their equally gorgeous family have graced our television screens via shaped reality shows like never before. From being adorable little girls to stylish grown-ups, these members of the Kardashian clan are two of the most followed stars of their generation.

“Blame it on the genes,” as what they say. Or their surname maybe? In the world of the rich and the famous, breaking through the walls will not be as hard. Or would it? There’s no denying that these sisters are already out there, making names of their own and moving past the initial identity their hit show has given to them.

Girls their age have been following every step and every turn these two take. Who wouldn’t be captivated when these Jenners offer nothing but stylish treats and fashionable blowouts every time they set their feet on every place they go. Mind you, they just recently opened their own fashion line, and the buying classes, especially young maidens, have been excited ever since it was launched. Imagine wearing something similar to Kylie and Kendall. Not everyone may be as lucky as these two, but wearing a piece from their line gives the feeling of being like them as well.

Be it street wear or the red carpet, these young ladies are two of the most anticipated and watched when it comes to their wardrobe. Some of their styles are brow-raising because of the sexiness, but they do have bodies to flaunt and curves to show. They might get dressed in a risky manner at times, but this only defines them as budding style moguls the world is anticipating to flourish one day.
