Style Icon: Rihanna

My personal Style Icon has to be Robyn Rihanna Fenty, this woman has been a trail blazer in the music, fashion and beauty industry. After a successful career in music she decided to enter the fashion world by collaborating with Puma and creating her own shoe line, she debuted her first clothing collection with Puma in 2016 and it’s been a hit ever since. She later released Fenty Beauty in 2017 which was a riot in the beauty community because of her iconic “Trophy Wife” highlighter and wide range of foundations, 40 to be exact. Rihanna is an unapologetic risk taker, this translates and influences her fashion sense, her style is definitely out of the box with bold colors, different silhouettes and overall sex appeal, she doesn’t care about the critics, she wears whatever she wants whenever and where ever, and that’s why we love Rihanna. Her confidence and attitude carry these bold outfits tremendously, she can talk the talk and walk the walk…fiercely. Here are some of my favorite outfits from the iconic Miss Rihanna..

Now Trending: Flared Jeans

Flared Jeans are making a comeback this spring/summer 2016 thanks to the revival of the 70’s. So you know what that means? Yes, time to put away those skinny jeans for a while and get yourself a brand new pair of flared jeans. For the ultimate trendy boho/hippie look pair them with a loose printed shirt, if you want to stay true to the 70’s look pair the trousers with a bold printed fitting shirt and some outrageous platforms. Another thing you can wear with your flared jeans is stripped shirts, either ribbed or a basic knit. If you’re looking for a more modern vibe to your jeans try a leotard (bodysuit), these will hug your every curve and seem like a regular tank-top. Here are some ways to style your 70’s flared jeans..

Summer is Coming

Summer is around the corner and you know what that means: Bathing-Suit Season! Don’t you worry you’re not the only one who’s going hard at the gym for that summer beach-bod, we all are. Wondering which bathing suit to get? Don’t worry I got you. If you’re a curvy gal like me I recommend you get the trendy high-waisted bikini, it covers the belly and any trouble area. The one-piece bathing-suit is back with a boom, I myself have been looking into getting one in black, they’re so slimming, they accentuate and glorify a woman’s curves; why wouldn’t you want that? Another bathing-suit that’s trending is the high-neck, this high-neck is a modern twist to the bikini that allows room for cool designs but just watch out for the tan lines. Here are some bathing-suits to look out for this Summer 2017..

The Art of Androgyny

Gender fluidity is starting to trend and isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. The art of Androgyny is the beautiful form of being able to embody female and male characteristics and traits, something not all of us can pull off. This look is fierce, bold, daring and it’s dominating the runway and fashion industry. So don’t be surprised if next season you see men wearing skirts because thanks to celebrities like Jayden Smith and models like Willy Cartier who are normalizing these pieces to be gender fluid. The women are also taking part of this trend, every time wearing more loose, boxy silhouettes and trousers. What a time to be alive, living without gender labels in the Fashion Industry! Here are some bold people rocking that androgynous look..

Now Trending: Vegan Leather

Nowadays people are more conscious about what they’re wearing and how it affects the environment, weather it’s cruelty free and the fair trade behind it. “Vegan leather” or “faux leather” is now trending  because it’s 100% cruelty free, sustainable and eco-friendly. It has the same texture, feel, look and use as regular leather, you won’t even notice. It’s the ethical way to look fashion forward without breaking the bank! There are purses, skirts, shirts, pants, shoes and even wallets out there made of vegan leather. Here are some vegan fashion finds..

Trend Alert: Denim on Denim

So Spring is coming, and you know what that means? We can finally shed our heavy winter coats and start using lighter clothes. Just yesterday I went to the mall and noticed a sense of peaceful spring arriving to the stores which brings me to today’s topic: Denim. Denim jeans are a must in every human beings closet so why not pair those jeans with a denim shirt? Too much? No! It’s about matching each piece with the other by taking into consideration the shade of the denim, and of course the style you’re going for. For Spring I suggest light shades of denim, tears in the denim and even bleach stains. Button down shirts are most common for this denim look but don’t be afraid to experiment with different silhouettes and fits. Skinny jeans at ankle length are super in, as well as the boyfriend jean and the bold denim skirt; the denim possibilities are endless! Here are some of my favorite Denim on Denim looks..
