Tuesday Ten: Favorite Fash Trends of All Time

It is fun to dress up and play with the trend. However, fashion trends come and go, so the real challenge here is how you can follow the trend while still enabling your own personal style to shine through. That is always my main thing when buying trendy items. Here are some of my favorite trends over the past decade or so and ways that I've styled them (or styling ideas I found on the web).

10. Oversized sunglasses

I love it because... it draws more attention to the face while providing maximum protection from the sun.

9. Boyfriend Blazers

I love it because... it is chic, comfortable, and versatile. You can pair it with denim, leggings, dress, or shorts.

8. Color blocking

I love it because... it offers unlimited styling possibilities.

7. Colored denim

I love it because... the pop of color helps to add more fierceness to a basic denim look.

6. Lace

I love it because... it is feminine and sexy. 


5. Pumps

I love it because... it's fun and fashionable, even though my feet hates me sometimes for it. lol

4. Ballet flats

I love it because... it allows you to be comfy without being sloppy with fashion.

3. Sheer tops

I love it because... the fabric is lightweight, comfortable, and effortlessly easy to style.

2. Leggings

I love it because...it goes well with anything and incorporates a chic vibe into your look. It is also perfect for day or night wear.

1. Skinny Jeans

I love it because... the fit makes the skin appear longer and it can make any outfit a step above in fashion.

Missing Summer

The holiday season is already on the horizon and I can feel the weather start to get a bit more colder. Also, I am more than ready to begin my holiday shopping. But aside from the holiday season, summer has got to be my favorite season of the year. I am a true-blue beach bum. I can spend my days along the beach just reading a good book, having a dip, or just to lay in the sand. 

The idea of summer brings back to me my favorite vacation so far - Boracay. The beach is extremely beautiful and since I got back I haven't stopped dreaming of my return trip. Have I mentioned I love sundresses? Hence, this season and being near a body of water gives me the perfect opportunity to sport my flowy fabrics and floral dresses. Summer is clearly the most fashionable season in my book.

Check out below for a photo diary of my Summer '12, as well as my birthday trip to Pearl Farm, to get a glimpse into my summer style.

Stripes & Blazer

Trends come and go, as they say. That is why I am cautious when buying something with the trend, making sure to buy pieces with a classic touch so I can still wear that item even when it is no longer in trend. 

One trend that I am currently loving is the blazer. When I spotted this cream textured blazer on my recent trip to the mall, I just knew right there and then that my closet needs it. The color is one thing that drew me in. It is neutral so I can pair it with any piece or color without making myself look like a total mess. And yet, the cut perfectly fits me like it was tailor-made.

Style Tips for Chandelier Earrings

Chandelier earrings offer a feminine yet beautiful accessory to your outfit. By wearing one, it will turn a simple outfit into a luxurious one. You can find a variety of styles and gemstones used for making them, which makes it flexible no matter what your taste for style or the specific look you are aiming for. But wearing it can also be tricky. Here's a major problem for every fashion-conscious woman out there: how do you style it in such a way that you don’t seem overdone?

No need to feel intimidated by chandelier earrings. I had come up with various style ideas that you can use to make the look work.

Sexy Glamour

You can pick a glittery dress to go with your chandelier earrings. If possible, go with a dress with a basic cut to keep it from being too loud given the statement coming off of the earrings and the glitter from your dress. You can go with gold bangles, if you want, and a simple clutch to complete the ensemble. Black heels are the perfect way to top off this getup as you already have too much going on above and you would not want your shoes to add some more to that.

City Casual

Believe it or not, chandelier earrings go well with shorts. If you can, you may even match the color of your earrings with the shorts for added dash of fash. For your top, keep it simple and basic because casual should still be comfortable, after all. Don’t forget to bring a leather tote bag and you’re good to go!

Corporate Chic

Who says you can’t be corporate and chic at the same time? These pants would really work well with these chandelier earrings because they both evoke major style statement. A layered top will add volume to your upper body. But if you find it too colorful for your taste, you can always neutralize it with a blazer. But I totally dig the color combination going on here – dressing up for work has never been this fun!

Choose bold colors to wear for a formal or evening soiree to further accentuate the use of chandelier earrings. Classic pumps and a clutch is set to complete your look. If you want to go a step further, wearing cufflinks or bracelet is going to bring your fashion level up a notch. Make sure you bring cardigan or military jacket to warm up at night.
