Trend: Where and What

The Backless Shirt/Dress

I do not know what that type of backless shirt is
called. However, it is definitely the edgiest and my favorite.

On the red carpet the backless trend is often seen 

An otherwise boring outfit made intriguing
and pretty just by subtracting a back.
My version showcases a drip of back. I would pair with
Flair jeans, brown wedges, and peacock feather earrings.
I recently bought a shirt from Free People with a hint of a backless style, and I realized this is a trend that has been popping up everywhere. I just saw recently in my own friends closet a backless blouse and I realized that I actually have been seeing that style of shirt everywhere. Mostly on celebrities not so much on runways.  However, if I do see a backless style on runway it looks like a backwards cowl-neck.  The reason I love the backless trend is because you could be wearing a long sleeve, lengthy, turtle neck dress with no back and it would look incredibly classy, luxe, and sultry.  A mixture of elegance, grace, and subtile hint of lust is very hard to achieve but the backless dress or shirt help you achieve that look so you can receive a feeling of cool confidence. And now for the pictures.

Outfit of the Day: First day of School

A floral Shirt with cut out shoulders from LF and a feather
necklace from Forever 21 look appropriate for school
yet flirty and edgy.
A close up of the cut out shoulder

My perfect fit of skinny dark denim also from LF. Balance
out the flowiness of the floral top and lengthy necklacr.
The brand is Carmar from LF

For the first day of school you just need a a folder and
a notebook so take advantage of that
and carry a cute purse. Mines from LF and I like the effect
the silver gromets have with the rust necklace

Gladiator Sandals by Dulce Vita just finish off the look.

Style Watch: Chanel Iman

To the left she looks grunge but the black heels and sillhuette of the pants make it classy
To the right she wears a tie dye dress with an oversize purplehandbag
and looks very trendy.

In both looks she is sporting statement jackets. She pairs them
with skinny pants. She looks professional, yet trendy
Maybe it's the way she looks flawless in everything or maybe it's the way she mixes grungy pieces with classic items.  Chanel Iman always looks put together.  She always has that fresh off the runway look.  She wears one statement item whether its a pair of patterned pants, oversized blazer, or a chunky necklace. She wears fashion that is never too much, yet never too little.  It's the way that everything is the right balance that makes you gravitate towards Chanel's fashion.  And let's not forget she is an amazing model. She has been featured in  Teen Vogue, TIME, i-D, Muse ,POP, Lula, Elle (UK)(Italy), Flare (Italy)(Canada) and Vogue (Korea) among others and has been featured in American Vogue, Italian Vogue, Allure, Harper’s Bazaar, Interview and V, which is just a few. She has also worked with a multitude of designers.
