Back-to-School Fall Fashion Trends

Wide Leg Pants Make a Comeback

Don’t want to look like a loser on your first day of school? If you got out of the fashion loop this summer, I invite you back in for back to school.

Here are five fall fashion trends that are sure to get you noticed on campus:

60s Chic: Don’t think hippie, think of Jackie Kennedy or one of the leading ladies from Mad Men when trying to pull off this hot trend. Women in the late 50s and early 60s dressed lady-like with pencil skirts, short-boxy jackets and shift dresses. Wear kitten heels and double-stranded pearls to complete the look.

70s Boho: Fill your closet with floaty skirts and embroidered tunics to get this look. Roman sandals and cowboy boots are the perfect footwear. Going bohemian is all about loose-fitted clothing, mis-matched prints and accessories. It sounds like an easy style to pull off, but if you’re not careful, you can look like a bag lady instead of a free-spirited fashionista. So, before you step out of the house, be sure that your outfit makes some sense.

Top Summer Fashion Trends for 2011

Use just a hint of neon to avoid going overboard

Hot temperatures mean hot fashion trends for the summer. While 80s fashion trends are still in, the 70s are making a huge comeback. 2010 was all about military coats, but this year is all about chic-biker jackets.

Spring fashion week inspired these summer fads, and if you don’t want to be stuck in 2010, I suggest you update your wardrobe with these must-have styles:

Neon colors: The brighter the better, baby. Neon pinks and oranges were a hit this spring fashion week, and they are here to stay at least through the summer. Wear hints of neon colors to keep you from looking like a rainbow and giving others a headache. Wear some bright ballet flats or a neon cami underneath a dark cardigan or blazer.

Five Prom Dress No-No’s

Well, Prom season is upon us! For many young ladies, picking out their prom dress is the second most important shopping experience of their lives, second only to picking out their wedding dress. The trends change every year: different lengths, colors, hemlines, and details come in and out of style. For example, in the 1980s, bright colors and short skirts were definitely in style. I went to my senior prom in 2007 in a floor length, strapless number that reminded me of Cinderella. This year, the trends seem to favor a short dress in softer hues.

Going with the trend is a safe bet for prom. However, many girls like to stand out from the crowd in their prom dresses. Unfortunately, this can lead to disaster if you end up picking a dress that is a fashion faux-pas. If you do not want to go with the standard dresses that everyone else will be wearing this year, but want to avoid a “what was I thinking?” moment, make sure to avoid these five disaster zones:

Jenni Farley is an Italian American who is best known for appearing on MTV’s hit reality television show, Jersey Shore. Farley is also known as “JWOWW,” a nickname based on her physical appearance.

JWOWW became interested in computer programming when she was 17-years old. She studied the subject for three years until she became a master.

Winter Fashion Trend Report For Girls

Made on Polyvore! Click the image to shop the looks!

Winter can be a very expensive time for the fashionistas roaming the northern college campuses across America, but a great opportunity to buy some trendy, staple pieces that will get you through the cold gloomy days. Here is the EDU In Review winter trend report for women:

Girls’ nails are short, square, shimmering and not fake, because acrylic is so last season. Pick up some dark, bold colors and a little secret to success is dry oil, two minute dry time and you’re out the door.

Sequin shorts (layered over tights) and shirts are a must have for the season. Don’t underestimate the power of sparkling: shining bright is not reserved solely for New Years Eve parties any longer.

Combining silver and gold for your jewelry pieces is a great way to get a better bang for your buck because the combination pieces will match every look.

Calvin Klein Education Background

calvin kleinCalvin Klein was born on November 19, 1942 in the Bronx. During his formative years, he taught himself to sketch and sew, and enjoyed those things so much that he went to the High School of Art and Design in New York, and then entered the prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology.

Upon graduation, he interned for five years in a Seventh Avenue fashion house, often spending nights working on designs of his own. His close friend Barry Schwartz helped him to create his first business in 1968. It was a line of coats, and Klein’s first large order magically happened when a Bonwit Teller buyer got off the elevator on the wrong floor and came upon Klein’s design studio. With store owner feedback and additional orders, Klein realized it was time to expand his line. Read the rest of this entry »

Teen Shot After Sporting Sagging Shorts

sagging shorts styleOne commonality parents have across the nation is how much they detest when their sons walk out of the house with their pants half way down their thighs, belted and exposing their boxer shorts (or briefs).

Described as classless and trashy, yet trendy and hip, many schools have strict dress codes that prohibit the style.

But in Tennessee, 45-year-old Kenneth Bonds, decided to take matters into his own hands, giving an almost too dangerous literal meaning to the phrase “if looks could kill.”

Bonds, according to local law enforcement, was angry and offended when two teenage boys walked into a house in Southeast Memphis, Tennessee to buy candy with their sagging shorts. Read the rest of this entry »

September 9-16, 2010 in Manhattan the infamous Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week shows were held at the event’s new venue location, Lincoln Center, and designers didn’t disappoint with the gorgeous dresses they showcased at the world’s most talked about fashion event.

While most of the gowns will be worn by Hollywood starlets to the Grammys and the Oscars, there will be a substantially high number of teenage girls wanting the looks for their homecoming dances this coming fall.

This year, “less is more” seemed to be a common theme, as the dresses were shorter in length but bigger in designs. It was apparent that bright and bold colors were the biggest trends, followed by textured dresses and sharp tailoring. Read the rest of this entry »
