What exactly do we look for in a stylish getup? Every day millions and millions of women around the world rack their brains for ideas, novel and revived, and garner piles and piles of compilations of what we like to call "outfit inspirations," may it be in the form of Pinterest boards, screen-captures, and whatnot. Today, we do not question the need to dress up but instead the need to dress up fashionably. The drive and the thirst for the pleasure and sometimes the prestige that comes from looking and being stylish cannot be denied. Not only do we question, but more importantly, today we also seek to uncover simple yet effective ways we can apply in everyday sartorial selections to meet the said need, drive, and thirst to be perceived as fashionable and stylish.
What To Wear Wednesday: Spring Casual Outfits
Even though we all love the Spring sunshine, flowers, and the days of Summer rapidly approaching, Spring can be a tricky time of year to dress because of its "in between" weather stage. However, for this same reason, this is one of our favorite times to mix it up with unique combinations of clothing and accessories. Due to the warmer weather, you can pair jeans with a crop top, or a dress with a sleek leather jacket. The options are endless, making us obsessed with Spring/Summer 2014 fashion. This week, we are all about Spring casual outfits. Our 'What To Wear Wednesday' is a casual, yet cute outfit that can be worn any day (night) of the week!
A Fun Romper
Rompers are a great way to get a dress look, while feeling a little more casual in shorts. This trend is so in right now, and it's one that you can easily take from day to night just by adding some accessories (and heels) to dress it up. We especially love the Shail K. 3468 Sleeveless Short Romper -
A Classic Denim Jacket
A classic denim jacket is a must-have accessory for the Spring, and even the Summer, months. It's a classy way to throw an extra layer on top of any outfit during times when it's a little cooler out.
The Modern Sunhat
Sun hats are so fun! They're also perfect for keeping the rays out of your eyes once you're hitting the beach in the Summer.
Shades are a must, of course. You might as well make sure you look stylish while you keep the sun out of your eyes!
Ultra Mod Booties
The Spring months are your last chance to wear booties before Summer comes and you're in sandals all the time, so live up your last days! We are especially loving the new cutout bootie trend - a great one to try out for Spring.
That's it! The perfect casual spring outfit that is still fun and flirty enough to be worn to a party or lunch, yet casual enough for a shopping trip! Like what you see? Comment below and tell us about your casual Spring day outfit!

Designer Fashion Lines for Discount Retailers
Who doesn’t love a good deal? That’s what major designers must have been thinking when they started partnering with discount retailers to offer “capsule collections” at low prices to the masses. These high fashion lines at affordable prices have become the most popular clothing collections for the style savvy that are short on spare change. The Marni Collection for H&M sold out from stores in hours this March, while the Missoni for Target line crashed the store’s website with record breaking sales during Fall Fashion Week last year. These popular lines have been causing a stir in department stores and discount retailers for years, but some fashion lovers are starting to question how similar the low-price products really are to their designer counterparts.
Capsule collections, aimed to highlight popular fashion designers in the mainstream, are part of a long line of collaborations that discount retailers have embarked on. Target has showcased lines by Jean Paul Gaultier, Zac Posenhas, and has an ongoing relationship with designer Michael Graves. Similar stores are getting in on the action of this idea too. Kohls released a line by Jennifer Lopez, Sears unveiled a Kardashian Collection, and H&M offered a limited run of Versache dresses and accessories last winter. These less expensive versions of high-end apparel seem to be the latest trend for thrifty shoppers, but the low-prices are becoming noticeably relative to low-quality.
Fall 2012 Trends – Back to School Beauty
Geometry 101 – Eyeliner Styles
Geometric shaping around the eyes will be all the rage this Fall, says Elle magazine. Get creative with your eyeliner and try out something more risqué like long wings at the corners, thick lines, and dots. Adding something more to your basic eyeliner and shadow will bring a new shape and feeling to your entire look. Also in style for the season are bold, full colors along the eyelid. Mixing in some bold eye shadow colors to your pallet can additionally bring more attention to your beautiful eyes!
History Lesson – Fall Hairstyles
Daniel at Fashioning says that this season, hairstyles are getting Vintage. The 1960s ponytail, side braid, and classic wavy bob from the 40s are taking over. These hair trends are bringing us back in time and making it a little easier to style our hair each morning. This Vintage mix is really about comfort and staying casual. Any straight hair will look fab in a long, low ponytail, while those with curly locks are in luck too with manageable braids or a bob look.
Biology Class – Boxy Bangs
Everyone will be adding prim and proper bangs to their hairstyle this Fall 2012 season. Straight, boxy, full bangs can completely change your style. Bangs bring an edgy look and can be a super stylish addition to hairstyles this Fall. All year at Fall 2012 runway fashion shows and previews, the boxy bang has been dominant for models wearing the latest trends. There are so many different styles of bangs so you’re bound to find a style that suits you. If you’re not sure what will look good with your face shape just ask your hairstylist for a suggestion.
Drama Club – Red Lips
Makeup trends seem to be all about the shock factor this Fall. If you’re looking to liven up your makeup style, pick up a luscious stick of red lipstick on your next shopping trip. Deep and bright red lips are totally Vintage, fitting in with the Hairstyles this Fall, and add another burst of color to compliment your geometric eyeliner techniques. Red is the ideal color for Fall, fitting in well with the season change. The great thing about red lips, they’re classic and will go with anything you wear!
Find Your Hi-Lo Dress
Last week we mentioned how popular Hi-Lo dresses have become this year. There are so many different hi-lo styles to choose from for casual or formal wear. If you want to show some leg in a hi-lo dress style, make sure you check out all of the different options available first. There are hi-lo dresses with large ruffled skirts, slim flowy skirts, and separate train skirts. Make sure you have a chance to see all of the different Hi-Lo styles before you pick your Homecoming or Prom dress!
Trend Setter – The Hourglass Dress
This Fall there’s a new shape to fashion: The Hourglass. Dresses this season are taking a step back in time to the prim fit that used to rule the world. No longer just a vintage style from the 40s and 50s, The Hourglass Dress is hitting the mainstream.
The Hourglass Dress accentuates the bust and hips. This fashion is known as the woman’s best friend, allowing you to show off your natural curves. While there are stick thin models walking the runways, the real trend is feeling confident and comfortable in whatever shape you’re in.

The 50’s fit gets an update this Fall with new modern prints and accessories. Even if you don’t have an hourglass figure, like most of us, you can still pull off the Hourglass Dress. Wear a blazer, jacket, or cardigan with your dress to give it a more modern feel, and add on a belt to your outfit for a cinched waist look. Thick or thin belts worn at the waist will give you the hourglass look.
