 { Trend Hungry Tuesday } Mixing Prints

Have fun with fashion. This trend requires it. It’s mixing prints together. So plaid and polka dots is a now a fashion DO as are stripes and floral designs. This is one trend you have to try to for yourself and a few celebs are showing us how it’s done.

Gwen Stefani always looks so put together but always with a cool, rocker edge. This past weekend she rocked striped sunnies with a dotted top and plaid pants. It might would like a lot going on, but it totally worked,

Beyoncé is another who’s been into pairing prints lately and posted a few different outfit pictures on Instagram.

Famous fashionistas that have been known to mix prints are Kourtney Kardashian and Jessica Alba.

{ Tips & Tricks To Pairing Patterns }

1. For easy pairing, try prints that are in the same color family.

2. Style a loud print with one that’s more subtle to balance the look. The subtle will act as a neutral.

3. Guess and test. It’s the only real way to find out what YOU like.

4. Go light on accessories. Let the prints do the talking.

As for snagging this trend on a budget, you can go pretty much anywhere, even your own closet. I found some stellar styles for a steal and Forever 21. They only look luxe.

There’s a Polka dot skirt for under $25,and striped top for under $10 and many more stylish finds. Scroll through the showroom and mix and match to your style preference.

{Trend Hungry Tuesday} Styled Sweats

Rihanna can add another title to her list of accomplishments. She’s now the Creative Director of Puma. Rihanna shared this big moment on social media and her outfit couldn’t have been more perfect for the occasion. She donned a white and cream sweatsuit styled with lots of jewelry, a corset top, and white Puma sneakers.

Jessica Alba has been known to rock the comfy-chic style and has paired loungewear with booties, while Jessica Simpson was spotted wearing her sweats with heels to add height to her petite frame.

This trend comes down to the styling, so layer on the necklaces, do your makeup to keep sweats from looking like you’re bumming around, or try a boot or heel. As for snag this trend on a budget, there are lots of affordable options. I’m loving this pair of stylish sweats from Target. They’re around $25, but use the code JOY30 for 30% off, but hurry as the discount ends tonight. Here’s more stylish sweats, all under $25.

{Trend Hungry Tuesday} White-Hot Winter

It looks like it’s going to be one white-hot winter. A number of celebrities have been seen rocking white outfits lately.

Nicole Kidman wore a white dress on the January cover of Elle. Ariana Grande opted for a white pencil skirt with a crop top  for her recent performance at the Disney Christmas Parade Taping. Taylor Swift also if loving the white-hot trend and was spotted in a long, all-white dress for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show After Party. And Solange Knowles, she too stepped out in an all-white outfit just this past weekend.

So why are stars opting for white well after Labor Day? Because white works. It’s versatile, chic, and never really goes out of style. It also has a way of making you look tanner.

Make a statement this holiday season with a little white dress. Pair with black tights and booties if you feel like it needs a little winterizing. I love this fit and flare style. It’s on sale, complements the figure, and has texture details that makes it feel more winter appropriate.

The accessories in their latest collection have a luxe feel, but all are extremely affordable, especially when you compare to one of their bags from The Row. Get ready to indulge and don’t wait, as past StyleMint jewelry collabs have sold out.

Another plus, the Olsens said they created “versatile pieces that transition easily from day to night”…can you say “Dare to Wear” worthy?
