Trend Predictions for Spring/ Summer 2020

  1. Psychedelic Prints
Image result for psychedelic fashion
1. With the sudden comeback of 70’s hippie fashions: flowy bohemian tops and flare jeans, etc. I definitely predict that the psychedelic, mismatched prints and patterns characteristic of the 60’s, will become huge within the next year. This will also follow the trend of bold, neon colors and prints that has been growing at a fast pace this spring/summer 2019.

2. Graffiti Fashion

To go along with the theme of bold colors and daring fashion statements, graffiti fashion, prominent in street style with metropolitan areas, will make its way to the mainstream. Edgy individuals wishing to send a message with their style choices will sport, graffiti-styled denim, leather, hats, and even shoes.

3. 80’s Graphic Art

Image result for 80s art
My spring/summer predictions for 2020 are heavily influenced by the bold, abstract trends of the 80’s; therefore, I expect to see a revival of 80’s graphic art and symbols making appearances on: t-shirts, bags, dresses, and jewelry/accessories.

4. 70’s Disco Fashion

Image result for disco fashion
There has already been a 70’s revival for spring/summer 2019, with the prevalence of flare jeans, gaudy earrings, flowy bohemian tops, etc. so I think this trend will only progress and gain more momentum for spring/summer 2020. With bold colors and prints already making a statement, 70’s sequins and bedazzled ensembles will surely be seen on the red carpet and in metropolitan areas.

SheekChic Fall Looks 2018

Hey guys! So, now that October has rolled around, I can finally, finally say that we are officially in my favorite season of the whole entire year. Autumn just has such a warm, effortless aura about it, and I feel like fall fashion is both functional yet so exciting in colors and textures, so versatile in the different ways you can style say, a red sweater or a white jersey top, and the makeup, oh the dark vampy plum lippies and the orange coppery matte eyeshadow, the possibilities are endless!!!

Soak in the fall weather with these looks below!

 

Alright so I know this might not be the first thing you’d reach for in your closet to wear this fall, it’s quite glamorous and curve-hugging for school/work, etc. but, if you are ever in for a night on the town, this fall would be the absolute best time to break out this slinky cranberry slip dress. I love the simplicity behind Christy Turlington’s look, with minimal jewelry, soft waves in her hair, and a strawberry-colored lipstick; to wear this dress, I’d actually pair it with a mustard or camel-colored leather jacket and some black ankle booties for a complete sheekchic evening look.

First of all Niki Taylor everyone, literally amazing! Secondly, I’m loving the woolly texture of this ensemble, as well as the soft contrast, from the beautifully-knit wool sweater to the striped, pleated gray skirt; this outfit is playing with various different patterns without seeming overwhelming. Finally, I just want my arms in the comfort of this stylishly cozy sweater. The sweater is both eclectic in the knit patterns, while also being very sheekchic and fashion-forward with the v-neck, I’d just add some translucent black or gray tights and some Doc Marten style shoe and this outfit is a knockout!

Christy strikes again! She’s giving me a very glamorous international spy vibe as well as a casual “strolling the Parisian streets in my Christian Loubotin stilettos” vibe too. She’s donning a lovely Versace ensemble with more of a demure cat-like midnight color scheme and then, (pop!), a heavy contrast in color, pattern, and texture thanks to the introduction of a leopard-print bustier dress on top. This type of layering was a classic fashion staple in the 1990’s, and I’m so thankful it’s made a comeback today because it’s one of my top favorite fashion looks. *Also, animal prints are a huge trend this fall, so don’t be afraid to let your inner feline free.

The lovely Nicola Peltz in the perfect fall outfit for everyday casual wear, you could easily catch me in this edgy, yet soft outfit on multiple occasions in the future. I appreciate the juxtaposition between the blush pink top daintily-cut along the bottom, and the stark grey washed-out denim giving the look a more vintage feel. I personally need that short cross necklace and the chunky black belt ASAP. Also, props to Nicola for sporting a wing with brown eyeliner and the addition of a coral- red lipstick, these are just oozing in autumnal goodness.

This would be SO cute with black tights, some matte brown eyeshadow, and a coral lip, or you could do a dusty purple eyeshadow look with a violet lip for a more glamorous vibe with this outfit, I can see it now..ooh la la how sheekchic!

I’m just loving the layering once again, a beautifully-knit white sweater with a perfectly black set of overalls, simple, yet very fashion-forward thanks, Rachel!

SheekChic Favorite of the Day!

This was gorgeous autumnal ensemble was spotted during this year’s Paris Fashion Week and I’m on love with the monochromatic themes, varying shades of muted pink and brick red, the dainty ruffles at the bottom, and the very sheekchic touch of satin underneath. What a showstopper!

*The beauty of this ensemble actually led me to a hidden treasure, the ThriftsandThreads website owned and operated by the lovely fashionista, Brittany Xavier. Check out her website if you’re ever in need of some avant-garde, effortlessly cool fashion inspiration.

SheekChic Fashion Muses for the Week!

Hi guys! I’ve literally been gone forever but I’m back and I’m better, and I’ve been seeing many many inspirational styles from contemporary fashionistas as well as the vintage ones (we can never forget those who paved the way for us). I think I’m going to start doing more of these compilations because they are much more representative of how I think and the eclectic way I view fashion every day, so I truly hope you guys will enjoy!

 

 

Here are the people whose fashions have made me feel SheekChic:

Bella Hadid #MLbabe

Bella Hadid, my forever fashion muse sporting a very edgy ensemble with heavy necklaces, a simple black choker, biker-style rings, and the perfect L.B.J., “Little Black Jacket” (I’m definitely owning that term now). This is the perfect outfit when you’re feeling like a rockstar or simply want to look like one for the day. I’m obsessed!

Image Source

I found this on Andrea Pion’s page (@sliceofpi on Instagram) and this is such a beautifully cohesive look. I’m not sure if I love the layering of the gold necklaces or that very bold, leopard-print bodysuit more! Also, she definitely gets props for that daring purse choice, I honestly love the introduction of a textured accessory, it’s small and compact, yet it makes a statement.

I’ve never been more obsessed with such an amazing pair of earrings! I only wish I knew where to find them, because I truly am a mermaid at heart, and I love all things nautical that remind me of being at sea collecting seashells. I also appreciate that these earrings consist of more of a rose-gold-tone, which is not commonly found for accessories. Rose gold is my favorite tone, and it will enhance warm skin tones, while also giving some needed warmth to those with cool/neutral skin tones.

Drew Barrymore

DREW BARRYMORE!! Oh my goodness, one of my all-time favorites since I was 12 years old! She is completely rocking the denim on denim look with such ease. To make the look more contemporary, I’d give her a dainty gold necklace, and if I could change something about this ensemble, I’d merely add a circular silver choker to add some dazzle without overwhelming or changing the mood of the outfit.

I just love the effortlessness of this entire photo, and I appreciate how cohesive everything is, from the teased, tousled hair, to the lovely *L.B.J., and Julia Robert’s “Rebel Without a Cause” facial expression just completes the aesthetic, and I’m in love!

london fashion week celebrity looks

This is simply such a lovely ensemble! I’m a sucker for floral patterns and the lace is so perfectly arranged, that this outfit could be worn to any spring/summer outdoorsy event or even a fancy, candle-lit dinner. The outfit has drawn inspiration from many vintage trends like the early 20th-century silhouette emphasizing slimness, yet femininity with those lovely vintage sleeves, as well as, the 1970’s large frame, round lenses she’s sporting. You also can not forget the accessories, from the gold heart earrings all the way down to the gold “lockbox” purse with beautifully-intricate, engraved designs. This look is a SheekChic favorite all year-round for me.

SheekChic Favorite of the Day!

This is giving me a contemporary Alice in Wonderland vibe with the flared-out skirt, the dainty silhouette, use of silk material for the middle design, and finally, the beautiful, soft linen used for the rest of the dress. All of these work to make it a definite stand-out piece that I’d love to try out. The soft femininity of that round neckline would go absolutely perfect with a golden emerald necklace, which would help to add a nice pop of color. Not only is the dress so unique and so so beautiful, but those dazzlingly chic designer boots could be a star in anyone’s closet, talk about strutting in style on a rainy day (what a mood)! Also, another absolute favorite is that gorgeous Christian Dior bag, oh my goodness I’m just picturing all of the outfits that would go with that bag, you could rock it with a baggy Urban Outfitters tee and some denim shorts or even a chic Little Black Dress “L.B.D.”, and it would still be a cohesive look altogether. SheekChic APPROVED!

*Also, though the person’s head is not shown, I’m 95% sure this is Bella Hadid, I honestly wouldn’t expect anything less from her. Let me know who you think the mystery woman is! Hmmm.

SheekChic 2018 Trends: Ruffles!

I know I’m not the only one that has noticed the overabundance of ruffles this year ;from streetwear to online clothing stores like Princess Polly and Saboskirt, even to the  fashion runway, ruffled tops and dresses are seemingly here to stay, and I have to say that it has been my favorite trend to emerge this year. I’m usually not the type to dress in frilly, delicate attire, but it’s something about the way those ruffles spruce up your outfit, adding a bit of playfulness, yet still remaining demure and quite lovely!  I think having a ruffled ensemble in your closet is an essential piece because they’re perfect for day brunch, a light-hearted outing to the park, a downtown stroll, or even (my daydream) dancing in a sunflower field!

Enjoy the ruffled goodness below!

Grace Kelly the epitome of elegance and delicacy, shining in a such a beautiful and refined, ruffled dress. This number definitely has some Latin flavor giving it extra Va Va Voom; the open neckline lets the outfit breathe from the heaps of ruffles Grace is under, and the polka dots along the top are classy, yet whimsical additions. The floral headpiece replicating a pink rose is fit for a princess like Princess Grace Kelly, and my favorite items are, of course, those dangly earrings, clearly a must-have with any princess fit!

Filha Cindy Crawford, Kaia Gerber estreia em campanha da Chanel

The patterns on these ruffles are to-die-for! I love that Karl Lagerfeld added the black vest to give the outfit some edginess and that smoldering purple smoky eye adds the perfect amount of impact to the floral ensemble, without overpowering it. Again, I completely adore those earrings! *hint hint I have an affinity for earrings if you couldn’t tell

SheekChic Favorite of the Day:

I love the juxtaposition between the doily-like, elegance of the top, and some good-old classic denim, to make this the perfect streetwear ensemble! I’d definitely pair this look with a high ponytail or a very posh bun.

Hugs and Kisses!!

Question of the day: Exactly how many ruffled items do you currently have in your closet?

 

Trend Forecast for Spring/Summer 2019

  1. Feathers

Feathers are making a statement regarding fabric texture, by adding a fun and sophisticated twist to your favorite blouses and dressy ensembles!

2. Animal Prints

Image result for snakeskin outfits
Following a recent revival of the flashy early 2000’s fashion era, animal prints have made the ultimate comeback in full force, now seen on: hats, purses, pants, shirts, and shoes. This print is the perfect way to make a daring statement while still appearing chic!

3. Yellow

The BIGGEST color this season, and perhaps this year, is definitely yellow! It has seen a recent explosion on all fashion runways from Oscar de la Renta (as shown here) to Marc Jacobs and Givenchy, and it has also been widely accepted in street style as well, making it a permanent staple.

4. Neon

Related image
Along with the retro revival of animal prints and the wave of bright and vibrant yellow, we also have seen the comeback of neon shades: blues, pinks, oranges, and greens, reminiscent of the 80’s color explosion. This will be the trend I look most forward to seeing, because it’s such a bold fashion statement, and it is certain to turn heads wherever you go!
