Trends that should end

Throughout the years, some trends have been brought back into your daily wardrobe (i.e. leggings, chunky jewelry, mod print, etc). When you flip through any fashion magazine, there lie the ‘Do's’ and ‘Don’t's' of trends. Below are just some of the ‘don’t's.’ Not even the A- or D-listers of Hollywood can pull these off.

Inspiring design

The visual and textual appeal created through the collaboration of designer Daniel Vosovic and photographer Michael Turek is apparent on every page of "Fashion Inside Out: Daniel V’s Guide to How Style Happens from Inspiration to Runway & Beyond." From the first touch of the soft, felt cover to the stylistically, scripted signature on the last page, the reader experiences inspiring images through form, color and language. Vosovic’s narration is supported by Turek’s visual story, as they explain how a garment moves through the design process from the moment of inspiration to the hands of the consumer.

The essentials to every girl's wardrobe

A motto to live by: Classic is chic and chic is classic! How does one go about creating a wardrobe that can last a lifetime? Picture Audrey Hepburn’s character, Holly Golightly, strolling the New York City streets in the movie "Breakfast at Tiffany’s." She gracefully wears a simple white button up, a fitted trench coat, that little black dress, fabulous shoes and big sunglasses. To me she is an icon, and she illustrates a fabulous wardrobe that every woman should have.

Redefining "it": A quest for personal style

It has been almost ten months since I made my last purchase as a fashion victim. Last summer, I decided that I needed an It bag. I saved my money, bought it, and loved how It felt effortlessly draped over my shoulder. The initial excitement gradually faded, like feelings for a handsome man with a boring personality. It no longer felt special when I saw similar versions of mine on the shoulders of women everywhere. I disliked that the designer’s emblem was printed over every square inch of the bag, too. Finally, I decided I was no longer going to be a walking billboard carrying the same bag everyone else had. But I was puzzled by the question: Why do I no longer want to have It?
