There will be something for everyone to fit their personal taste and style. So let’s take peek at the most modern trends for the future! Denim is one of the favored pieces for spring and summer 2013. The most trendy denim piece is the somewhat baggy jeans. Denim has made its way into many designers’ collection for this season; namely Rebecca Taylor and Dsquared2. The denim jacket is in a looser and trench coat version this season.
Fitted jeans are one piece of clothing that is worn by most people. In fact, you should find it in every woman’s wardrobe. For one, it is a comfortable fit and easy to put on. There is barely any woman that doesn’t love a nice pair of fitted jeans. Furthermore, denim is always trendy; no matter what season is in. Denim always returns each season with minor changes and some modernizing.

Choosing the right fitted jeans
It is sometimes difficult to find the exact fitted jeans. You have to know how to choose the right color, cut and style. The fashion rule is to choose darker colors if you want the slimming effect. If you choose brighter colored denim, it adds more volume to your figure. Every woman should have a pair of classic blue and black jeans in her collection. You can combine any of these with a variety of colored tops. With one or two pairs of these jeans, you have more options of creating a new, modern and fresh look when you add brightly colored tops.
Become street smart when it comes to your weekend attire with its suggestive and stimulating rehashing of blazers and denim skirts.

Chambray
Chambray is a spin-off when it comes to denim. This fabric has seen a real rebirth from its glory days when it used to be rocked as work attire in the early 1900s. Many designers such as Chris Peters have provided an updated style in the form of wide legged pants. Because of this, denim jeans won’t be the same ever again! The same designer has created a patchwork of different denim shades including chambray, which symbolizes a grungy and cool look to those who wear them.
Chambray dresses are also trendy and come in a combination of pockets, textures and straps. Chambray vests can be worn over a white top with black miniskirt. This will make a fashion statement this spring.

The Top Ten Fall Must-Haves!

Fall is Here!  The leaves are starting to fall, temperatures are dropping, and I am SHOPPING! hahahaha!

This is my favorite season of the year.  The clothes are classier, they are structured better, and we look SO expensive.  The colors for the season are autumn colors combined with pops of bright colors. Bordeaux, jade green, mustard, cobalt blues, OMG!  We are going to look fabulous ladies!

Every season my ladies always get confused on how to look trendy without overdoing it – so I thought I’d help you out today with a list of my Top Ten Must-Haves for Fall 2012. Enjoy!

Summer Sandals

Along with hot days and poolside fun, summer brings some of the sexiest styles, but some of those styles just don’t do everyone’s body justice. I love these summer flat sandals but a lot of the styles make our legs look large and stumpy and can create a really unflattering silhouette if worn wrong. I am here to help! I have a couple of tricks to keep in mind that you can stick to when picking out the perfect pair of sandals.

Watch what’s happening to the ankle: If there is too much action going on around the ankle, it can cut you off and give you the appearance of a larger leg, especially if you are short. Opt for a thin strap around the ankle if you have to have one at all.

Sling-backs are your friend: The most attractive sandal is a sling-back because it keeps that elongated look in the ankle but keeps the shoe from sliding off. When shopping, look for this style to be your “classic or go-to” sandal.

Platform problems: Most women don’t think about this very often but the heel of the sandal can have a major impact on the way a shoe will look on your leg. I have seen so many styles with a slight wedge and a thick strap up the front and around the ankle that will make even the leanest women look stocky, so please stick to flat sandals. If you would like a bit of a raised heel for comfort that is fine but keep in mind the shape and height.

Walk a while: When searching for the perfect summer sandal, walk around in them for a while – don’t just try it on and look in the mirror. If you spend some time in them you will start to get a feel for any areas that may rub or cause a blister. I can’t tell you how many times I buy a gorgeous shoe and this happens.

This style can be very sexy if done correctly, so do not be afraid to try new styles and designs!

6 Top Summer Sandal Trends

Just LOOK at these – and let me know what you think!

There’s nothing as electrifying as bright hues from head to toe. If you prefer just a pop of color, pair a vibrant shoe with neutrals.

Embrace the season’s tribal vibe with woven rope flats and bold ethnic prints. Slip on an earthy shift for effortless chic at weekend picnics or patio soirées.

Go for the gold—or the silver—with a metallic sandal. Just add sun-kissed skin and cool ivory shades to unleash your glam summer goddess.

Tall and naturally textured, these essentials add earthy elegance to everything—from jeans to high-powered suits. Ground an all-white outfit for a fresh, natural look.

Sky-high platforms with a sporty twist give preppy a posh edge. Reverse the effect and add playfulness to a prim-and-proper pleated skirt.

As versatile as your favorite blue jeans, denim-hued wedges do it all. Keep your cool with striped layers and a dark blazer, or be carefree in a boho maxi-dress.
