NYFW

Want to know what summer 2016 fashion trends were absolute hits at New York Fashion Week?

Summer 2016 fashion trends NYFW

7 summer fashion trends straight out of NYFW.

 

1) Shoulders

One of the most-seen trends on the runway was exposed shoulders. So go ahead and pick out your favorite off-the-shoulder tops or shoulder cut-outs and let those shoulders do the talking!

2) Midi

Midi skirts continue popping up all over, and next summer will be no different. So go ahead and show those ankles with midi skirts, pants, dresses…

 3) Slits

I have yet to find a woman who doesn’t feel super sexy in a slitted skirt, so this is great news for us girls! Slits were see all over the NYFW runways, and will be showing legs all over town next summer.

4) Sheer

Sheer pieces mark their presence every season, and Summer 2016 is no different. From casual looks to party dresses, transparency was seen all over!

5) Round glasses

Round glasses have been gaining popularity over the last few seasons, and if the runway is any indication, they will continue to do so! Which is awesome, considering they’re super cool! So if you haven’t yet, go get yourself a pair!

6) Terninhos

Classic suits never go out of style, but for the summer they come in not-so-classic versions such as leather, satin, with out without buttons… WANT!

7) Vests

Expect to see vests all over next summer. On the runway, they were seen worn in a million ways – short, long, with fringes, with sparkles, in leather… Check your closet, I’m sure there’s one in there just waiting to see the light of day again!
NYFW was full of previews of what’s gonna be hot next summer, but the season is just getting started. We’ve still got London, Milan, Paris…. so stay tuned!

Trend alert! How to wear two bags at once

como usar duas bolsas ao mesmo tempoHave you ever thought of wearing two bags simultaneously??

If you haven’t, now’s a good time to start! Wearing two bags at once (the trend that has been given the unfortunate name of double bagging) is a rising fashion trend. And if we already love carrying one great bag, why not go ahead and do two, right? Hahaha!

But let’s get a few things clear: the idea isn’t necessarily throwing on two random bags, but coordinating a tote with a mini bag, mixing two shoulder bags, or maybe even wearing two identical ones. The possibilities are endless, so let’s check out how to do it!  👇

Where did the idea for wearing two bags simultaneously come from?

Double bagging has been a thing since it started showing up on the winter 2016 runways, with a few different brands bringing in their versions.

Chloé strutted two similar bags in different sizes, while Dolce & Gabbana put together a large, everyday bag in a neutral color with an ornamental mini bag. I found it super cute and can definitely picture using the mini bag for essentials like lipstick and iPhone. Mulberry mixed a maxi bag with a mini bag in the same color, and it looks awesome!

How to wear two bags at once?

Like I always say, let’s not get caught up with rules. There are a million ways to wear this trend, so what you see below is mere inspiration.

Two shoulder bags

Shoulder bags can be worn crossed over the chest or, like the name suggests, over one shoulder, and can be adjusted to various heights, which makes them super versatile and easy to mix and match. And you can get a result wearing two of the same bags or two different ones.

Two of the same bags in different colors

If you are like me, when you really like an item you go ahead and buy it in a bunch of different colors. and bags are no different! If you have two of the same bag in different colors, throw them on and be happy!

Two different bags in the same color

Mulberry gave a great example of how to wear two totally different style bags in the same color, and it looks GOOD. You can wear a really big one with a smaller shoulder bag, an everyday tote with a mini bag…

One big everyday bag and a mini bag

If you’re not exactly sure about this trend, starting slow is a good idea. Try wearing your normal everyday bag with a mini bag, which turns out to look more like an acessory than an extra bag.

A bag and a clutch

Another idea for those of you that aren’t exactly convinced: wear a bag and hold a clutch – its one of the most low-key way of wearing two bags!

But remember, we make our own style, so go ahead and try new ways of wearing to bags at once and show me either by e-mailing me or by using the #lucianalevy hashtag on Instagram!

So, what do you guys think? Are you gonna get into the double bagging trend? Leave your comments below and if you like this post, help me spread the love by sharing it!

Tattoo chokers, the 90s trend that’s back with a vengeance

tattoo chokers

Do you remember the hottest trends from your teenage years?

One of the hottest trend from when I was a teen was the tattoo choker, that plastic necklace that was all the rage! I remember being a wannabe-rebel in the 90s and wearing those to compose my misfit look, LOL!

Well, as it is not uncommon for past trends to come back, the tattoo choker is again a hot item! So let’s take a look at the different varieties, how to wear tattoo chokers and where to buy them! 👇

What are tattoo chokers?

Tattoo chokers are plastic necklaces worn tight around the middle of the neck. They are so close to the skin, in fact, that they look just like tattoos, hence the name!

The classic tattoo choker is black with interlacing designs, but we’re seeing all different kinds of versions, like leather, colored plastic and fabric:

Kylie Jenner and Lindsay Lohan chose to wear the accessory in casual looks, but Emma Stone showed us that tattoo chokers work even with red carpet looks. And she looks stunning, right?

How to wear tattoo chokers?

Tattoo chokers can be worn alone, with pendants or combined with other necklaces. I really like them worn like this!

I really love the fabric ones, but I confess that the classic black plastic ones made me all nostalgic and I really want to jump right into this trend.
