This is why you need the slip dress…

Everyone wants to be ahead of the game when it comes to fashion trends. For some people it just comes naturally. These people set the trends, and other people follow along. If you’re not the kind of girl that knows what’s going to be in style beforehand, then I’m here for you babe. I’ve put together my predictions for Spring fashion trends and added where you can get the less expensive alternative. You’re welcome!

THE DRESS IS….THE SLIP DRESS

Ok, anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE dresses so that is why I am going to start with my spring dress prediction for 2016.huhkuhihi

This spring is all about the sexy, flirty slip dress. This dress makes you look and feel seductive and confident. It’s supposed to look like you effortlessly  just ‘rolled out of bed’ , (preferably with a smoking hot guy and simply went on with your day.) It’s like the classy walk of shame. My advice is to get one made out of silk, but you may have to fork out some money for a silk one. An Alexander Wang slip dress can cost anywhere from $700-$1,000!  Or you can get one with lace on it that is just as fashionable as one of the high end designer dresses. I found one at Forever 21 Canada for only $22.90. 00183403-02

This slip has the black lace on the top part of the dress, which makes it look more like a dress than a slip. (which is what it actually is.) If you think this dress is too short, you can always opt for a longer version or add a pair of knee high black socks or boots to complete this sexy look. Finish the look with a black leather jacket or blazer and you’re ready to go out on the town.

THE SHOE IS…THE SNEAKER

After dresses, my next favourite thing to purchase is shoes. This spring is going to be all about the comfortable sneaker and I am so happy about this!! Kanye West’s shoe line with Addidas ‘YEEZY BOOST 350’ designed by Kanye himself is the sneaker that is all the rage right now. However, they are mostly sold out except for some that are still available on eBay for over $1,000 a pop!  Luckily I found a pair of Nike sneakers that look somewhat similar and are only $155, so you don’t have to break the bank.

THE TOP IS…OFF THE SHOULDER

For spring it’s all about showing off those sexy shoulders with off the shoulder sweaters and tops.  It honestly doesn’t matter what colours you pick, but keep in mind some of the spring colour predictions are; beige brown, mustard yellow, light rose pink and grey.  I definitely recommend adding a necklace or a fabric choker around your neck for some extra style points. There is an American Apparel off the shoulder top for $46.00 that I love because it comes with a choker, and four different colours. (see below)rsa83140_prettyinpink

NOW LAST BUT NOT AT ALL LEAST…THE PANT IS…

THE JEAN!

To be for specific it is the retro, somewhat distressed, baggy jean. It’s the type of jean that you don’t have to get from an expensive, designer store. You can get this jean trend from vintage and thrift stores such as Value Village.  And BONUS once summer rolls around you can cut these jeans and turn them into high-waisted shorts.

The lighter colour jeans are more in style for spring/summer, and both distressed and non-distressed jeans are in style this year. And you can always add some rip’s and tears to your cheap, thrift store jeans that you got for like $7!

Coachella Inspired Music Festival Trends

Whether it’s Coachella, Pemberton Music Festival or the Squamish Valley Music Festival, you have to push the envelope when it comes to fashion.
By blending bohemian-hippie style, rock & roll-punk,with a hint of girlie fashion trends, you can have the best outfit for the music festival you got tickets to this summer! It’s all about accessorizing with jewelry, head pieces, hats, etc.
With that being said, here are my tips and tricks to be the most fashionable girl at the festival!

The first thing I do when I put together an outfit, is I figure out what kind of theme I am generally going to be aiming for. Am I going for a more girly look with flowers? Or am I wanting more of a edgier look with combat boots perhaps? It is important to stick to somewhat of a theme when deciding on an outfit because if you don’t stick to one theme you can look like you are trying too hard.

For example this outfit below has too much going on.
She’s got bohemian-hippie patterns, mixed with a rocker shirt, with way too many accessories!
