I’ve felt unrepresented by my size/shape on the highstreet for years, and it was reassuring to see on twitter that I wasn’t the only one who felt this way after a short convo with some …

Getting Inspired the ‘Bright’ Way

 

bright-wrong

Take notice ladies! Bright colors are more versatile than you think. Whether you’re trying to be colorful all over, or just looking for a little extra pizzaz, there are many fashionable ways to achieve the perfect blend of colors. Launch yourself into fall the right way with bright colors as your statement transitional pieces.

A great way to keep your favorite summer styles in your wardrobe a little longer is to mix them with fall’s traditional subdued colors to create a trendy look that makes your unique style pop. Try layering mini dresses or shift dresses over darker tights or under a knitted sweater. Styling with high boots, oversize scarves and darker outerwear can also help shift your summer looks into fall fashion statements.

Faux fur vests can also be a great accessory to a bright dress or top. It’ll keep you cozy in cooler weather while adding a little texture to your style.

Keep an eye out for patterns as well! Sometimes adding a neutral pattern over a bright piece can bring the whole outfit together in a unique and interesting way.

If you’re looking to stand out even more, try pairing a bright top or dress with a contrasting and equally bright jacket. There’s no need to dull yourself down for cooler weather. Show off those colors with pride!

Graduation Day Outfits – Our top picks for your big day!

As students cram for their upcoming finals, we know this means one thing: Graduation season is right around the corner!

For most people, graduation tends to be a major event, as it celebrates the achievement of earning a diploma and the start of the next chapter in life. Celebrating this day with classmates, friends and family, we all know there will be many pictures taken, and below are some of our top pick to make sure your outfit is photo album (and Instagram) ready!

When it comes to graduation dresses, people tend to lean towards demure styles, ranging from casual to semi-formal looks. We don’t recommend micro mini dresses or lavish sequined ball gowns, but the range of dresses in between gives you many options. Most importantly you want to pick something you’re comfortable and confident wearing.

THE CLASSIC LOOK: BLACK & WHITE

Black and white are great go-to colors. White has a clean fresh look to it and black is sleek & classy. Both are timeless, elegant and sophisticated.

FLIRTY & FEM: THE FIT & FLARE

The fit & flare is modest, yet highlights your natural curves. It is fitted on top and then flares out at the waist, creating a universally flattering silhouette.Fitnflare.png

RETRO CHIC: THE SHIFT DRESS

Shift dresses have no defined waist or structure, but can also be extremely flattering. These dresses draw the attention away from your mid section while also elongating your legs.

LASTLY, LETS TALK ACCESSORIES!

They can vary depending on several factors such as the style, color, and neckline of your dress but here are some items you may want to consider for your big day.Access-2.jpg

Wedges: Swap out your heels for wedges. These will add some height, pair lovely with your dress and offer longer lasting comfort.
*If your are attending an outdoor graduation these will also be a fantastic choice because they will prevent you from sinking into the grass.

Sunglasses: Protect your eyes from the glare with your favorite stylish sunglasses.

Wristwatch: Keep time with this classic, yet functional accessory.

Earrings: If you will be wearing a gown during the ceremony, show your style with some decorative earrings!
