{ Earring Evolution } Double-Sided Earrings, Cuffs, Climbers + Crawlers

Ear accessories have evolved. Now there are double-side earrings, ear cuffs that hook onto your ear, and even ear jewelry that seems to climb up your ear.  I hung out this AM at Fox29‘s Good Day (love them!) to share some of the hot new earring trends. Linked below are some of my favorites that we showed on TV today along with a little breakdown on the styles. Read on, as this is one versatile trend, fit for any age and taste. Whether you’re a boho babe, glam goddess, or prefer some understated style, there’s something that may please your palette.

{ Cool Cuffs }

When I first started noticing ear cuffs the styles were often big and almost bulky. Now there are a lot more options now and small and dainty seems to be where the ear-cuff trend is going. Add edge by wearing a few at once or go understated and cool by just wearing one little cuff.

{ Double-Sided Details }

There are two main styles I’ve seen out of the double-side duos. There’s the ear jacket, which typically has a detail on the back that hangs a little and peeks out below your ear. Then there’s the popular double-sided studs. These often have a back that’s the same size or a little bigger than the front of the earring. Hair pulled back is preferred to really show off these babies.

{ Climbers + Crawlers }

Okay, these might be my favorite. The look of these starts at your earlobe and then details start climbing up the ear. Some require pierced ears, but many don’t and clip on gently. QVC has a slew of styles, but the ones below are on my must-order list. So many of the ladies around QVC have them and they just look so great on. I wore them today for the Fox segment and wow are they comfy. I couldn’t even feel them on!

{ The Loop-Through Look }

The tamest of the new earring trends, these hoops go through your pierced ears so that some of the design is peeking out the back. These tend to have a hand-made look, as they’re composed mainly with  one piece.

{ Trend Hungry Tuesday } Mirrored Sunnies

The unofficial start of summer was this past weekend and some celebs got reflective with their fashion. Yup, mirrored sunglasses are trending and this weekend alone Reese Witherspoon, Kate Hudson, Kesha and Kylie Jenner were spotted rocking the eyewear style.

Miss Witherspoon opted for a pair with fruity embellishments over the holiday, while the youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan donned an oversized aviator style with an orange tint to the mirrored lenses.

Some people prefer to drop serious cash on sunnies (sometimes you just need a little designer treat), but this is one trend you don’t have to spend on. Cheap sunglasses are totally cool for trying out a fun fashion. If you often lose or sit on your shades then trendy over spendy may be best. Lulus.com has a slew of cute mirrored sunglass styles for around $12. So good, so cute, and so not gonna break the bank. So which pair of mirrored sunnies suit your style? Do tell in the comment section below or tweet me at @JessieHoleva using the hashtag #TrendHungryTuesday!

{ Photo Diary } Summer Trendspotting with QVC’s Amy Stran

I am LOVING my new job with LOGO by Lori Goldstein on QVC! It’s a blast getting to do what you love and I am so thrilled for all that’s to come! I’ve been on QVC a lot lately (more than a handful of times just last week!) and have been getting to share style tips and fab fashions.

A few weeks ago I met up with QVC host Amy Stran to do some trendspotting around the Rittenhouse Square area of Philadelphia for Amy’s show Inspired Style. We walked around, checked out what people were wearing, and of course talked all about our favorite styles and trends for these warm-weather months. I’m so not sure when the footage from our fun day will air, but Amy’s blog already recapped the looks we love.

Here’s a few pics from our fashionable day out and here’s the link to Amy’s blog featuring the fashions we favored.

The chiffon trim on the top fit perfectly with one of the trends we were spotting, cool hemlines. As for the floral pants, I am OBSESSED with them and just ordered a pair in the pink hue called Henne — so comfy + chic.

I’ll be sure to link to the segments when they’re available. Want to know when I’m on next? Follow me over on Instagram + Twitter for updates.

Thanks + stay tuned for more photo diaries. I think this is a blog feature I want to grow so I can share more of a peek behind the stylist / TV personality / blogger curtain.  Special thanks to Meg, who helps Amy with social media. She took these pics and was sweet enough to send my way.

{ DIY } Bridesmaid Gift Bags

Woohoo! This girl right here (typing away on this blog post) is going to be a bridesmaid! It will be a first and I’m pretty darn excited. Not just because I was asked in the cutest way ever, and it really was and I’ll get to that in one sec. More importantly, I’m so honored to have such great friends and want to put the spotlight on one of my favorites & the bride-to-be, Kate.

Girls are tough. I’ve got a whole lot of people I’m friendly with but very few people in the inner circle. My Valentine Kate (we ditched our boyfriends a few year years ago for NYFW on heart day) is such a sweetheart who’s chill and creative and awesome and supportive and real and we are just on the same vibe. I love her and couldn’t be more excited for her and to be a part of her big day and life! Like I mentioned, she’s creative and she asked me to be a bridesmaid in the most adorable way, which is what this post is all about. It’s so cute that I wanted to take a picture before even opening it so I could capture how she wrapped it.

Steal the idea, use it as inspiration, or heck, if you want it made for you contact me and I’ll get you in touch with her.

The card says “I’d be lost without you” and she handmade it with her new calligraphy skills. I’m in awe that this card was DIYed. The glitter name tag, also hand done.

Inside the bag: bubbly (she knows I’ve got a Prosecco weakness), a compass necklace, a cute striped straw, and that super-sweet card.

will you be my bridesmaid gift idea

To DIY it, check out the full blog post Kate composed over at the Widell Designs blog.

Hope this inspires you to let your inner DIY diva come out. It’s a great way to make something feel personal and special and I feel so loved to have received it. So thoughtful! Love ya Kate!! xoxo

{ Trend Hungry Tuesday } Sexy Slits

So the Billboard Music Awards were this past Sunday and celebs were showing skin, some more than others. One way to expose a little flesh is with a slit, and that’s what Meghan Trainor,  Rita Ora,  and even Celine Dion donned at the big night in music.

They’re not the only celebs rocking slits. Kylie Jenner & big sister Khloe Kardashian opted for dresses with slits recently to an event. Selena Gomez also rocks the slit trend as does Beyonce, who wore a slit top to Coachella earlier this year.

Slits aren’t just for fancy gowns and skirts. Try a slit top like Queen Bey.  A top with slits gives it extra movement and you may get more wear out of a top than a dress or skirt.

Forever 21 has tons of styles for around $20 & under! Here are a few slit tops that I’m loving from this budget-friendly retailer.
