Waterproof Converse Sneakers: It’s A Beautiful Thing

Puddles, snow, mud and blinding blizzards all require proper shoes and boots, ones that maintain dry feet. Iconic brand Converse is launching its gorgeous new Counter Climate collection of waterproof trainers. It’s exciting news, and the look is a good one. Why didn’t anyone think of that years ago?

 

Some of the tough and enduring materials for the new sneakers include water-repellent canvas, rubber and leather and waterproof neoprene. The styles offer a great variety in unisex and also men’s and women’s waterproof Converses. In addition, the sneakers really do keep your toes dry and “snuggly.” The proof is in the pudding.

 

Take a peek at this YouTube video by SneakerTalk. They put a pair of white Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star 2 Lows to the test. In fact, the demonstrator runs an open faucet of water all over these new waterproof Converses and watches in glee, as water just keeps rolling off the sneakers. Yes, the sneakers are dry to the touch, and it’s quite incredible to see.

 

The Counter Climate collection can be purchase through Nike online. The colors are also quite appealing. For instance, the Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star Rubber Chelsee is available in shades like Polar, Red, Bitter Lemon and Black.

 

The new Converse waterproof sneakers are rugged and able to withstand any kind of nasty weather your travels take you. These beauties also offer unique heat reflective barriers to help keep feet warm.

 

Everyone needs at least one pair of waterproof sneakers.

 

 

Put The Pom Pom Atop Your Head and Stay Warm This Fall/Winter

You’re either going to love this fashion trend or probably despise it, but whatever you think, consider the pom pom, ladies.

 

That’s right; the cute fluffy ball was all over the runways, adding a classic whimsy to the fall/winter fashion trends. Knitwear hats adorned with pom poms are really big this season and best of all, affordable.

 

Shops like Forever21 are wild about the look. We found 32 adorable pom pom hats in several styles at the popular fashion site.

 

At Forever21, the most expensive pom pom hat was $17.90 in an elegant, burgundy floppy felt style. The cheapest one was just $5.99 on sale. As you can see, these are super affordable and super adorbs.

 

Some of the other styles we found were colorful pom pom knit hats in beanie style, faux leather cap, French beret, owl trapper and veiled beanie. There are also cable knits, stripes, sequins, ribbed and marled knits and graphic, too.

 

Pom Pom hats seem to invoke a youthful playfulness and are perfect for when the weather gets cold, windy and crazy. The trend started picking up steam last autumn, and now it’s even more popular with bigger pom poms to boot. Other shopping sites that are featuring the hat trend include Asos, Topshop, Urban Outfitters and Zara.

 

Celebrities also dig wearing a cute and sometimes goofy pom pom hat. Stars like Kendall Jenner, Beyonce, Jessica Biel, Ellie Goulding, Cheryl Cole, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Rihanna are just a few who like to snuggle under some pom pom knitwear.

 

Even if the style looks kind of silly, the right attitude wears the trend so well. Think of beautiful Ali MacGraw from the famous movie “Love Story” with Ryan O’Neal. The model wore a beanie pom pom hat and looked so stylish. It’s a 70s vibe that has a cozy, sentimental appeal and feel to it. Designers like Anna Sui, Lanvin and Agnes B. are showing it big time for Fall 2016, according to VogueItalia.com.

 

Don’t worry, because you can wear a pom pom hat. We can all wear one, because they define cuteness.

Women in Politics have Become Forceful Fashion Models

Fashion and clothing has taken its place of pride in political parlance, going by the recent developments in American politics. The women in politics or those close to the men in politics have become automatic fashion models. The dressing they have chosen to wear to occasions both private and public, the people that design it, and its label have become the points of discussion, creating both protests and tensions.

 

Sources of Fashion Models

 

The white pantsuits that Hillary Clinton adorned during campaign evoked the memory of suffragettes. Besides, the rainbow of matching ensembles that she dressed also inspired her fans into flashy mob dances. Her arch supporter, Mitchell Obama has also played the role of the First Model during her time at the White House, often drawing curious eyes to her designers and what they meant to portray through her dressing. Talk of what cloth her dresses were made of and how it suited her build and persona have been a point of discourse amongst many fashion conscious analysts.

 

Sources of Fashion Protests

 

Fashion analysts have closely followed the accessory and clothing that Melania Trump and her step-daughter Ivanka Trump have adorned. Their clothing inspired the distaste amongst the minorities, immigrants and women who have been the subjects of derogatory statements that Donald Trump issued during the recent campaigns. But the same clothing have been fully embraced by Trump supporters who have seen him as the champion of their voices.

 

The women in power have turned the red carpet as their moment of fashion show. Their dressing is currently given political undertones, serving as both the point of inspiration or derision based on the side of the political divide that the fashion analyst belongs. What cannot be taken away from these women in power is the new significant role that they are playing to promote fashion ideas not just in America but also around the world.

 

 

 

Artist “Grows” Mushroom Leather to Sprout Beautiful Fashion and Accessories

This might sound like the craziest idea ever, but darn it, it is real and authentic and might just become your next ostrich-like leather wallet.

 

The world has always been in love with the softness, beauty and durability of real cow’s leather. However, there is the cruelty factor when you consider the eventual slaughter of these magnificent creatures. So, artist Phil Ross has found a better way which is kinder to animals and the environment.

 

Ross’ company is called Mycoworks, and what they basically do is grow leather-like material from the dense root structure of mushrooms. It’s an unbelievable process that will yield stunning works of fashion for clothing and accessories in the near future. The mushroom skins can be created or manipulated to mimic expensive leathers like ostrich, cow and snake, and no animals were harmed during the procedure.

 

Even more fascinating is the organic incubation technology itself. For instance, while the mushroom skin is growing, one could add zippers or other hardware right into the hide. Because mushroom skin is an organic fiber, it also breathes like conventional leathers and feels great with a similar texture.

 

It’s pretty genius and a cool example of a simple fungus found in the dirt coupled with the advancement of science and technology. The company explains it like this:

 

“MycoWorks is building a better world with nature’s best tools.”

 

Mycoworks designed their first mushroom leather wallet, and it is quite a handsome accessory. No one would ever guess that it weren’t real leather, except for maybe the artist himself Phil Ross.

 

Mycoworks is definitely a brand to keep watching in the fashion future.

 

How Shopping And Fashion Can Improve Self Image

If there is one thing that is underrated, it is the effect that fashion has on the person’s feelings towards him or herself. This goes beyond the conventional ideas of dressing well. The more important aspect of fashion for the person is in buying what that one person wants for his or herself. There are a lot of unconventional items that could actually help people feel better about themselves and their lives. They could also find something unique that people will also enjoy. They will then be encouraged to live a happier life with their fashionable choices.

 

The best way that one could feel better about himself is that he does not worry about what others think about him and what he wears. This opens up all possibilities for him to find some new items that he could enjoy throughout the day. As he experiments with the different styles available, he will also get to feel the fabric of the clothes that he tries on in order to help him determine what he likes. As a result, he will get to feel like he is worth something when he finds an outfit that fits him well and brings out all of his best attributes.

 

He doesn’t have to worry about trends. Trends come and go. Also, he could start a new trend with the type of clothes that he wears. One thing that could help with fashion is the confidence that comes with it. At the same time, fashion can also boost one’s confidence when he makes sure that he is wearing the clothes that he likes and not allow people to dictate the trends that he should follow. This allows a lot of room for creativity. With the right clothes, one is going to find himself able to take on different aspects of life.

 

The Plus Size Industry is Growing Substantially

The average American woman is a size 14, so it makes sense that a lot of clothing manufacturers and fashion companies are finally recognizing this and providing the necessary products to meet these needs. Two decades ago, it might have been practically impossible to go into the mall and find cute, trendy clothing for larger sizes that didn’t cost a fortune. Nowadays, you can go into virtually any store, both online and off, and find an array of gorgeous clothes that range in size from XXS to 5X. Having the same styles as thinner women helps curvier girls feel better about themselves, giving them a chance to be just as fashion forward as the models you see on the runway.

 

In fact, there has been a recent resurgence in fashion bloggers who are plus sized. Women like Darlene Lebron Lopez, Kate London James and Sawsan are all popular fashion bloggers who have thousands of followers staying updated on all the latest looks and trends. You don’t have to be a size zero to look good, and the fashion industry is realizing this and making it possible for larger women to find clothing they actually want to wear.

 

Despite jeans and blouses being made in larger sizes, you can now find knee-high boots made with a wider calf to support plus sized gals. Plus size clothing stores like Torrid and Dia are bringing gorgeous fabrics in lingerie to keep you feeling sexy. Let’s face it, many of us can diet until the cows come home and still be in a larger size, so it’s nice to know that we can still look just as good now than we did when we were smaller. There is no size limit in the world of fashion, opening the doors to a plethora of styles for women wanting to look their best.

VillageLuxe Transforming the High-End Fashion Industry

Julia Gudish Krieger is the brilliant mind behind VillageLuxe, an Airbnb of sorts, only this time it has clothes, accessories and shoes that are for rent and not houses. It is based in New York and women gladly welcomed this brilliant idea. VillageLuxe deals with designer fashion items and the application and site enable women to borrow these items from other women at a small fee.

 

It is an invite-only affair and therefore not everyone gets to enjoy these services. Many women would like to be part of the network and many have signed up and are hoping to be accepted to join the network. These include the likes of Alexandra Wilkis Wilson and Leandra Medine, who are big names in the fashion industry.

 

Julia has always had a passion for entrepreneurship and investment. What inspired her to start VillageLuxe was the realization that renting fashion items is an untapped business opportunity as it would be a cheaper option for women and they would therefore gladly embrace the concept. She got the idea from what Uber and Airbnb are already doing with taxis and houses respectively.

 

Julia had no prior experience running a business and therefore faced a few challenges along the way. Her biggest challenge has been being responsible for the wellbeing of the people working for her and ensuring that they are working in good conditions and being compensated well enough for their services. But all in all, the experience has been a rewarding one and she would not have it any other way.

 

Julia is proud of herself and is very impressed with how far she has come with VillageLuxe. She is a hardworking lady who is committed to excellence and looks forward to a successful future for VillageLuxe. Her love for fashion drove her to do what she loves and she has no regrets whatsoever.
