Fall Trends 2017

Nicole Couch

With the start of fall on Friday, a new season of trends as started. While you might be thinking ‘I know the trends. Wear burgundy, boots, and have a pumpkin spice latte in my hand,’ you would be wrong. Well, not entirely wrong, but this season brings about a whole new set of trends that are so cute, you’ll throw the burgundy sweater to the side (but don’t throw it too far. You’ll want it back).

 

One trend seen all over runways and in stores is fringe. And fringe can come on a lot of vintage clothing, like from CHC Vintage. It’s a fun way to look dressed up while wearing a comfortable jacket or shirt. Having the fringe hang from the sleeves of your shirt or even on an understated bag and liven up any look this fall.

Another big trend is fur. Right now, the humid weather wouldn’t allow everyone to go out and wear a cumbersome fur coat. However, as we digress into colder months, fur will be everywhere. Have it plain or liven it up with some color. Just be sure to double check that it’s fake!

Thank goodness for this next one - lounge wear! Grab those leggings, a comfortable t-shirt and throw your hair in a messy bun. Keep it classy or make it grunge (there are really cute vintage tees from CHC Vintage to help with this look). Have a more leisurewear look with some workout pants and a pair of sneakers. Comfortable will be your favorite look this fall season.

Last but not least, keep a lookout for anything shiny. Metallics, glitters, and anything that sparkles is a must have this fall. Rock a full metallic outfit or keep it simple with some sequins on your favorite shirt, pants, or dress. Tis the season to be shiny!

Summer 2016: How to Travel and Pack like a Pro

Nicole Couch

As we start the summer off, I’m sure many of us are planning a weekend away from our jobs and our everyday hectic lives. Whether you might be planning a vacation across the country or a place a couple of hours away, we can probably all agree that packing might be one of the hardest parts of traveling. I had an amazing opportunity to travel all around Europe last semester, and since the summer holidays are upon us, here are a couple tips on how to travel stylishly and comfortably.

     A cute pair of flats is one of the best ways to travel and be comfortable and chic. If you’re flying to your summer destination, they are perfect for going through security while carrying your bags and personal items. Stick to neutral colors such as tan, black, and brown to match almost anything in your wardrobe.

  Athleisure is currently one trend that is dominating the house of fashion. Fashion forward pieces in Jersey, Lycra, and Cotton/Poly blends will keep you comfortable and well ready for a plane ride. Many celebrities such as Nicole Richie, Taylor Swift, and Vanessa Hudgens are strutting this style this summer.

     While packing light will help you save room for souvenirs on the way home, be sure to pack at least a couple of statement necklaces or scarves to update your look. These are perfect to pair with a t-shirt, cardigan, and a pair of jeans!
