Hey fabs!

You know what we say about trends…they just keep on coming! This week, the fashion trend I’m feeling is the fit and flare trend popularly known as fluted hems. The first time I spotted this trend was on the Balmain spring 2014 runway. It came in feminine colors like baby pink and blue…I thought it was gorgeous! Clearly, I was right because this trend is taking over the streets in forms of dresses and skirts!

The fluted hem is kind of like a pencil skirt but it has a fluted hem. Think of it as another version of the peplum trend…get it? It has a very flattering and feminine silhouette. The trend can be dressed down when wearing a fluted hem skirt with a tank top and it can be equally dressed up with the right pair of killer heels. Another way to really kill this trend is add a belt  to your look. This helps to fully accentuate your hips. Call it FBY 101…Lol! Check out some of my fabs who have slayed this trend…Enjoy!

Trend Alert: Pretty Pastels

One thing about fashion trends is that they change so fast. One thing can be in this year and the next year, its outdated. Last year, we saw how neon was such a huge color trend. Neon was incorporated with a lot of clothing and accessories but this year, the trend setters (designers) are telling a different story.

The pretty shades are back this year. We saw shades of pastel colors on the runway off genius brands such as Burberry, Mary Katrantzou and Elie Saab.

I love this trend and as a matter of fact, I do have a lot of pastels in my wardrobe. Personally, when I’m trying to pull of a feminine and soft look, I do consider pastel colored piece first. To effortlessly rock this trend, try out colors like powder blue, peach, coral and cream. You can infuse pastel colors in your look by so many ways including a pastel clutch or a pastel colored lipstick. Pretty-Pastels-Spring-2014-Trends
