One of our favorite models, Cara Delevingne, has been walking the red carpet lately for a whole new reason: she’s acting in movies! She’s been all over the news lately for so many movies she’ll be staring in, from Suicide Squad to Pan. She even stared in Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood music video! The latest, though, is the film Paper Towns, which is all about a special road trip. She recently walked the red carpet for the Paper Towns premiere, and of course she did it in true style, bringing her innate sense of fashion into the movie industry.

Art Deco Inspired Looks for Homecoming

Homecoming Season is coming up! You can tailor your look for Homecoming in many ways, like the Gothic Lolita for example. It’s a stylized take on the turn of the century vintage vogue with exaggerated puffy materials. Big bold floral patterns and lace edges can be very 80s Madonna inspired. Especially if you do hard accessories like a leather cuff or short booties. You can put big lace and tulle skirts together with contrasting accessories, like cowboy boots for example. There is also the art deco look. A classic style with geometric designs and heavy embellishment. Girls are getting very creative at making these styles all their own. There is a dress out there for you. Whether you want to reveal or conceal, any way you are most comfortable, today there really are no rules.

One impression to consider is the polished mode of the art deco movement. The tendency for this look to reemerge time and again is expected. Designers thrive when they pull their creativity from art trends in history. Art Deco is  both new and old, modern and understated.

If you are looking to do something bold, classic and completely chic, think about the art deco style. Vintage is making a comeback. Artists and Designers from the Art Nouveau are serving as design inspiration for contemporary looks for formal dresses. Graphic prints and embellished details in the bodice and sleeve, these are ideas that come from the cusp between the bohemian and art deco eras. If you ever peruse an art history book, you may recognize styles of dress from the subjects featured in works by Degas, Klimt and Sargent.

Turn on your inner fashionista and think back to the quality dresses Carrie Bradshaw wore on Sex and the City: bold prints, soft neutrals and always some sparversace mille feuille dress gallery400×359kle. Seek out embroidered bodice, cap sleeve, flowing skirts and a mix of jewel tones and soft pastels. These elements come into play with today’s fashions for the first reception of the year. There is a fun mix of pieces that refer back to the deco period of the 1920s, and dress forms that harken back to the 1950s. There is a variety of styles available, but the classic forms of the Art Deco era keep coming back in sleek and stylized ways.

I’m Not Emo Anymore I’m Grunge

Artfully disheveled looks are making a comeback, reminiscent of the grunge trend of the 1990s. Both men and women find that grunge is a fun trend that is easy to wear. Stylists are going back to this concept in photo shoots and music videos. Even artists and actors on their days on and off the clock are rocking this trend on set and on the street. Most of the candid street style shots posted to social media lately are grunge inspired.

2015 Grunge Fashion Revival

Some simple fashion principles and key pieces can make this look underdone and effortless without looking a mess. Unless you do want to do a messy look, then you are still styled within this trend. Sometimes we follow trends without even knowing it. It might border on hipster style, but grunge has a less structured and more playful look. There are many retailers offering dresses and tops in this style. Not quite a hippie ethereal goddess, not quite hardcore punk, but those ideas come into play with modern grunge. From natural textiles and warm hues to stark graphic patterns and metallic accessories, a variety of elements make up what we call grunge.

What is “Modern Grunge” Anyway?

Grunge first emerged in the early 1990s as an amalgamation of all the things that came before it. Bohemian, hippie, punk, emo and goth elements came together in the perfect Continue reading
