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.

 

 

 

Denim Overalls And Jumpsuits Hot Trend And Celebs Showing Them Off

Even though leggings and active wear are outselling denim these days, we still find it hard to believe that jeans would ever go out of style. Denim is beautiful on everyone of all ages, and the sizzling trend of the moment are jeans designed in overalls and jumpsuits.

 

Before you scream, that is so 1970s, relax and read on.

 

Celebrities have been rockin’ this modern style for a few weeks now, and the fashion must is ideal for all shapes and sizes. Denim overalls and jumpsuits are casual chic, in addition to being super comfy and versatile for many occasions.

 

Model Christie Brinkley and model daughter Sailor Brinkley-Cook are loving denim overalls with their cute sneakers and simple white tees. Of course, the two look like sisters, as ageless Christie displays her amazing youthful looks in a pair of overalls from head-to toe, while Sailor sports the overall shorts version. Their coordinated denim ensembles look fresh and modern, from age 18 to 62, in this case.

 

Top Chef hostess Padma Lakshmi is also into the denim fashion trend, as she headed out the door in New York City holding hands with her adorable daughter Krishna. Both ladies were wearing sleeveless denim jumpsuits in the scorching city heat and looking absolutely chic and polished. Padma’s was a cropped version she teamed with green platform heels, while Krishna’s denim featured a onesie playsuit with cute ballerina flats.

 

Even Jennifer Lopez has been strutting her famous curves in the denim jumpsuit trend with a fitted, retro style and wide legs.

 

Denim overalls and jumpsuits elongate the body, letting every women look taller and sleeker.

 

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.

 

All Year Round Releases More High Quality and Affordable Women’s Wear

Maggie Winter and Jac Cameroon co-founded All Year Round (AYR) in 2014. AYR is an e-commerce clothing brand consisting of women’s wear with the major focus on denim. The company has its headquarters in New York City, and it lately opened a new store in Lafayette Street, Soho. The AYR, which is a brother company to Bonobos, launched Guideshop in April 2014. Later in September the same year, they collaborated with Shopbop in opening a wholesale shop.

 

 

Interview With Forbes

 

 

The two co-founders and co-CEOs started AYR with the aim of providing high-quality fashion brands at an affordable price. According to an interview with the Forbes magazine, Jac Cameroon stated that they are so many different brands in the market, but the challenge lies in the quality and pricing. The high-quality items are not affordable to everyone while the ones with a good price are not of high quality. Therefore, the two embarked on the journey to provide season-less quality women brands at fair prices.

 

 

Their bestselling items include the white poplin popover, the Robe that is a long Italian woolen coat, the powdery blues chambray shirts, and skinny jeans. The following essential covered all the seasons meaning that women will not have to spend more on getting different outfits with the change of seasons.

 

 

AYR as an Independent Company

 

 

When All Year Round began, they were operating under Bonobos. Before their launch, they had established some good contact with their manufacturing company in Los Angeles, which made them some pairs of jeans. Their first clients were friends who purchased the jeans from a lost in Garment District. In 2015, they had established their customer base, and they moved out of the incubation with Bonobos and started running independently.

 

 

Marketing the Brand

 

 

They have always relied on the press and word of mouth in marketing their brands. The Forbes fashion editor, their co-founder Max and expert in fashion PR, and the community have also played a vital role in the growth of their company. Their large client’s base includes some renowned figures such as Karlie Kloss, Crissy Teigen, and Leandra Medine. AYR intends to expand their business to include international shipping by 2017.

Don Ressler And The Purpose Of Fashion

Some people have a basic view of clothing. Clothing was meant to protect people from the elements and keep them warm. However, that does not mean that there is no room for any pleasure and beauty. People, especially women, love great looking clothing. They also like to find clothes that they personally like because it makes them feel special. A lot of women want to be able to find their own style, their own trademark, and their own look. Fortunately, a lot of clothing stores offer a lot of variety to fashion for women. However, not all categories are varied.

One example of a category that is not as varied as other categories in women’s clothing are the athletic clothing. Pretty much every store has the same products in the women’s clothing aisle with no room for differences outside of the pricing. Everywhere people would go, there is the same exact type of clothes. The designs are the same, and the material is the same. The stores seem to have been run with the mentality that athletic clothing is to be merely functional. However, one person stood up in the face of that tradition. His name is Don Ressler.

Don Ressler has understood the desire of people to feel special. He also understands that a lot of women love to work out. Therefore, Don Ressler has taken the time to come up with a way for women to feel more special while they are getting their workout. Also, he wanted to take the time to design clothes that have a different look, but are made of the same material as athletic clothes. As a result, The LA Times wrote that Fabletics was born. Also, with Fabletics, the concept of ‘athleisure‘ clothing has come into the spotlight.

With athleisure came the type of clothing that women could wear for any occasion. While some of the clothes can be worn for physical activities, there are some clothes that are designed more for socializing and meeting with others. Don Ressler’s creation has turned out to be a truly successful deal. This is because he has consulted with others in order to make sure that what he has created was not just different, but aesthetically pleasing.

Clothing: You Have Been Doing It Wrong

Clothing and fashion are not always great. New outfits lose their appeal before they are even worn, laundry days are few and far between, pieces become too tight, and fabric stains, unfortunate burdens in the world of fashion. Thankfully, there are countless hacks to make dressing yourself easier by saving you time, money, and a whole lot of patience.

 

Stretch Your Flats in a Flash

 

Though often cheap, new flats are difficult to break in. Chances are, you need these shoes the next day and do not want to deal with the pain that will come with wearing them so soon. The night before you plan on wearing them, put on your thickest socks, slip on the flats, and use a hairdryer to seal the deal.

 

Remove Pen Stains with Hairspray

 

If you have ever used a pen, you have gotten that pen on your clothing at one point or another. Instead of setting the stain in with water, pull out your hairspray.

 

Why Put Your Jeans in the Freezer?

 

Fashion gurus say that you should not wash your jeans after every use because they fade faster and the fabrics loosen. However, the thickness of the material results in some horrid odors being trapped in there from time to time. To put a stop to this nonsense, put your jeans into a ziplock bag and place them in the freezer overnight.

 

Save Your Old Tights

 

Have a deodorant stain? Use a pair of old tights to rub it away.

 

Add Something; Lose Something

 

Anytime you buy something new, consider donating something old. Chances are, you purchased this new piece to replace an old one and to spruce up your wardrobe, right?

 

Roll ‘Em Up

 

Rather than folding clothes, roll them before putting them into your drawers.

 

Vodka for Clothes

 

Again, laundry days are too far apart. If you need to pull something out of the hamper, spray it with vodka. This will destroy any odors and the vodka smell will not linger.

Secret Style, Zero Actual Effort

Being stylish does not come easy for everybody, but this gloriously modern time makes that quite alright. With so many designers understanding the need to produce affordable attire and accessories and that they must conform to fitting all body types, fashion is made simple. Surely some people are still fashion-impaired and do not know the first thing about dressing for their body type nor how to properly amp up their outfits, but BuzzFeed has compiled a concise list describing how you can trick the public into thinking that you know the difference between New York Fashion Week and Star Magazine.

 

There’s No Shame in Borrowing

 

The new trend is a subscription service that will send you new clothes each month for a fee. When you wear the outfit and receive your fill of compliments for the day, simply package it up, send it back, and wait for the next one.

 

Find the Perfect Jacket

 

A trendy jacket can make the most ridiculous outfit fashionable, specifically if it is leather. For the sake of being animal-friendly, opt for faux-leather.

 

Learn Your Prints and Patterns

 

Mixing prints and patterns is in, but only if you know how. Sure, polka dots do not necessarily work well with stripes, but they can if you balance it out correctly. Once you learn these fashion rules, you will immediately become fashionable.

 

Plan Ahead

 

Picking out your outfits the night before will make for a more put together ensemble the following morning directly because you will not cut corners to save time and patience.

 

Check the Weather

 

Be ahead of the crowd by checking the weather. While everyone is bundled up in preparation for forty degree weather, you can lessen the layers because you understand that today will be in the sixties.

 

Remove the Wrinkles

 

Ironing is out, but bringing your clothes into the bathroom as you shower is in. Removing the wrinkles from your clothes without investing any actual effort will make people think that you actually care about your attire, even if you do not.

 

Roll Your Sleeves Up

 

Learning how to roll your sleeves up can transform a professional outfit to casual; dressy to semi-sexy, too.
