Trend Alert: Off the Shoulder

One of my favorite trends right now is the off the shoulder look. I find this look to be sophisticated yet edgy at the same time. Shoulders have been considered scandalous, mostly at my school, for the longest time and it is time to show some skin.

Burnt orange is a big color for the summer and this outfit reminds me of something that I would wear if I was visiting a beach in another country. I like adding a few pieces of jewelry so the focus is not taken away from the dress. I love the hat how it adds a bit of a bohemian touch to it so I decided to add a bag and shoes to match it.

This is a different type of style, known as the ‘cold shoulder’. I love the top of the dress it is quite different with unique colors. I like to match shoes with the bags. I imagine this dress being worn on the islands of Greece just enjoying the view. With a high ponytail, the hoop earrings will look amazing with the outfit.

 This look is a bit edgy with the ripped shorts and the black shoes. This is something that I might possibly wear to a music festival or just a night out to town. I love the top with the lacey details as it contrasts with the rest of the outfit to give it a soft touch.

 This outfit is also different as the off the shoulder trend is on a romper. I love the bright colors that are perfect for spring and summer, especially the blue is huge for the season. I love blue and to be able to add color to this outfit, it creates the perfect touch. Since the shoes have gold metal, I decided to add a few pieces of accessories that match the metals. The beach hat also adds a fun touch to it.

This a casual outfit where the floral top juxtaposes distressed boyfriend jeans. I added espadrilles because they are easy and fun to wear. Espadrilles are the perfect summer shoes because they do not have to horrible to wear in such hot conditions.
I absolutely love this trend and you will be able to find similar items at Urban Outfitters, Zara, Forever 21 and many more!

Trend Alert: Chokers

90’s are back baby! The grunge style has been my favorite a lot recently and I am so excited more than dark tees are making a comeback. Although I was born in the late 90’s (1997 to be specific) I do not say “Oh my gosh I used to wear that!” I wish I could but about 17 years later I can officially I can without looking like a total weirdo.
I love how chokers now a days are completely different. All I could remember when I was younger was the “tattoo” chokers and now I think about it, I thought it was rather odd. Now I see starlets and teenage girls (who knows maybe guys are sporting the trend) wear a dark piece of thread around their neck with charms, or a sequined neck-band (like a headband but for the neck) or completely going against the grunge and having a very pretty choker.
The name may seem rather violent, but I believe it is a fun item to wear back-to-school. It is a piece to accessorize or just a small piece to make an outfit.  Also if you are not willing to pay so much for a choker, a favorite Youtuber of mine has a video on how to make your own without spending so much.
