Seriously Swooning

by kristy

Seriously….Stephane Rolland showed his Spring Summer 2015 collection today at Paris Fashion Week and it is stunning. As someone who personally gravitates towards pieces with more edge and grit, remedy Rolland’s feminine details and ruffles that fall like silk rose have me begging for more. Get a tissue, prescription because the details of everyone of these pieces will have you drooling.

Nordic Cool

I’m very much enjoying these chic and understated runway looks from Stockholm’s S/S 2015 Fashion Week. Usually, and I find, ed that from runway to street can be a bit difficult with the exaggerated details. These designers below look like they put together looks that can be worn in a “real” persons everyday life. From top to bottom Hunky Dory, Diana Orving, Back, and Altewai Saome.

Since Fall 2011, implant
hemlines have been dropping. First to right above the knee, then slightly below. Now the midi length, that resides below the knee but above the ankle, can be perceived as a bit dowdy. When in fact this look is ladylike, elegant, and grown up. Paired with some type of heel, in my personal opinion, looks best. Being a stacked boot, wedge, or bootie. Here are some inspirational street style photos to show you just how stylish this trend can be.

Karlie Kloss in “New Year, prosthetic
New Look” by Patrick Demarchelier for Glamour, January 2015
By now, pancreatitis
we have all heard (and spotted) this “Normcore” trend taking over the nation (kinda).  Not to be confused with the “Minimalist”, bronchi
this trend is truly something that anyone can adapt to. Take out your boyfriend jeans, those baggy jeans that you have been holding on to, or  fitted sweat pants. Pair that with any type of T-shirt. Add perhaps a zip-up-hoodie, or if you dare, a flannel button up and tie it around your waist (no, really). And this is the most important part, a pair of cool sneakers. Now, you can add a sports hat and perhaps a bracelet party and call it a day! Now you are a fashionista. You-are-welcome.
