3 Shoe Trends That Will Make Your Legs Look Longer

If you’ve been shoe shopping at all lately, you’ve probably noticed there are tons of shoes with ankle straps and wrap around (the leg/ankle) strap shoes.

How to Wear the Maximalism Trend

Have you been feeling maximal lately? Good! Today’s post is all about the new trend of maximalism. What it isn’t? Simple! But that doesn’t mean it’s difficult to achieve. The maximalism trend for spring 2017 is all about wearing bold colors, patterns and accessories in one outfit. The look is a bit whimsical and hectic.

What’s that?” Let me explain…I didn’t include this trend in my 2017 spring trend report, because the fashion gurus have been touting this trend for about 3 years now. A few other ways it’s been described is “khaki,” “the new trench coat,” “sleek utility,” and “street chic utilitarianism.” Quite honestly, utilitarianism in fashion is little vague (even to a wardrobe consultant and stylist,) and I’ve never written about it on my blog since on the runway the trend is so oversized and extreme, it seemed ridiculous, plus I never [..] read more
