Microtrend: Garter Accents

Garters have forever been a staple of intimate apparel. But someone decided it was time for garters to get out of bed and join the rest of the cool kids in becoming one with everyday streetwear. We’ve experienced a recent surge of garter-like accents on unexpected pieces and we’re loving it. We’re talking garter accent leggings, dresses, and jumpsuits. The best way to describe this microtrend? Daring! Something we love about garter-inspired pieces? Versatility! The garter dresses are essentially two pieces, in one. With the simple undoing of a buckle or button, you can wear the top and skirt separately. A microtrend that is not only cool, but also economical? We’ll take it!

How to: Newsprint Nails

We all know newspapers have become a bit obsolete (thanks to the internet), but we’ve decided to re-purpose them for a fun mani. It just so happens that the ink used for newspapers is perfect for giving your nail a little text tattoo. Just make sure your parents are finished reading their favorite sections before you steal borrow their paper.

Inspiration Gallery: Creepers

There are plenty of 90s trends we’d love to leave in the past, but these funky shoes have crept right back into our hearts and onto our feet. Paired with other current trends like printed sweaters and feminine skirts, these totally rad shoes are given an updated look. We also think they are pretty awesome paired with reruns of 90s sitcoms. They might be making us a little bit nostalgic, but some things just never get old.

Here’s a little inspiration for styling your favorite retro shoes with modern trends!

How do you style creepers?

Microtrend: Galaxy Prints

If you were a fan of the hit 80’s/90’s fantasy sitcom, Out Of This World, you’re gonna love this trend! We started seeing these galaxy printed pieces a few months ago. But what started off as a few sprinkles of cosmic-coolness has recently gone mainstream. This totally nebular celebration of the universe is a great way to play with colors and add a little (extraterrestrial) life to your look. Take a look at our collection of all things galaxy and get ready to lose your mind!

1. mesh accent galaxy bodysuit 2. distressed graphic galaxy tank 3. galaxy leggings 4. galaxy print shorts 5. camo print tee 6. graphic tiger sweater

Have you tried the galaxy trend? Do you love it as much as we do?

Remix: Faux Leather Skirt Edition

You know when you completely fall in love with something, but you just don’t know how to wear it? It happens to all of us. We’re here to help you out, though. We’ve taken one of our favorite pieces right now, a faux leather mini, and styled it for a casual day of shopping and for a dressy date night. Since we’ve been totally loving big cat graphics and mint lately, we decided they should be incorporated, too.

Here are the deets:

Microtrend: The Return of Mint

Last spring, all things minty fresh emerged onto the fashion scene with a big, pastel bang. This year, mint is making its return in every shape and size imaginable. From shoes to watches to bags, we plan on being completely decked out in the cool hue this spring. Here are a few of our favorite minty picks.

1. wedge sneakers, 2. two-tone purse, 3. cut-out polka dot dress, 4. zigzag face watch, 5. textured triangle earrings, 6. slip closure clutch, 7. studded loafers

What hues have you been loving lately?

How to: Color Chain Link Jewelry

We’ve been loving rocking chain link jewelry with everything lately, but after a while, simple silver and gold links can leave us wanting more. More color, that is! We decided it was time to give new life to some of our favorite bracelets with a little colored Plasti Dip. After a few minutes of dipping and drying, we had a bold and colorful new trendy bracelet.

Here’s our finished look.

What you’ll need: Create Your Color Plasti Dip, Plasti Dip tint, an aluminum can, chain link metal jewelry, and a plastic spoon.

Tip: You can find Plasti Dip at most hardware, auto, and home stores.

Pour enough Plasti Dip to cover half of your jewelry into an aluminum can. This will allow you to save the rest for another project since you don’t need very much for this one. It should be about three inches high.

We decided to color our bracelet seafoam, but you can do whatever color you want. Whatever color you choose, pour the lightest tint you’ll need into the mixture first. Stir with a plastic spoon.

Mix in the next color, but only pour in a small amount at a time so your color doesn’t get too dark too quickly.

Mix in your final color. If you only need two colors, skip this. If the mixture isn’t quite the shade you want it to be, play with the colors a little always adding the lightest first. Stir the mixture thoroughly so you don’t see any streaks.

Slowly dip your bracelet into the Plasti Dip, lowering it a little more every 5 seconds. Then, slowly lift the bracelet out of the Plasti Dip in 5 second increments.

Hold your bracelet over the can for at least a minute to let the excess Plasti Dip drip off.

Hold your bracelet for a couple minutes to make sure it isn’t dripping anymore. It should start to solidify, but won’t be dry yet. If you plan to do a second coat, let your bracelet dry for 30 minutes before you dip it again. Once finished, hang your bracelet to dry for at least four hours (preferably more) before wearing.

Wear your bright, new jewelry!

How do you liven up your favorite jewelry?

Trendy Celebrities are Layering Up

Summer may be long gone, but several celebrities and fashionistas have figured out how to wear their favorite summer styles in cooler temperatures. Of course, you could always add a coat, but that would cover up your pretty dress! Instead, try layering a button-up shirt, blouse, or tee under your favorite frocks. It will give your dress a cool-weather vibe that will keep you feeling warm and looking stylish. Here are a few of our favorite celebs rocking the layered trend.

How do you layer your dresses for cooler weather?

P.S. You can shop for the perfect layering shirts on the GoJane site!

2013 Trends: What to Keep from Last Year

2012 may be over, but don’t clean out your closet just yet! Several of this year’s trends are going to carry you right into next year. And they’re going to be big. From 90’s nostalgia to nautical jewelry, you’ll be ahead of the curve for 2013.

tribal print two-fer dress, studded pumps, high-waisted skinny jeans, embellished chain link bracelet, striped polka dot mixed blouse

1. Leather: We know leather will always be around in shoe, purse, and jacket form, but this year, we’ve been loving all the leather in unusual places. Whether it’s used as an accent on a flirty dress or a pair of comfy leggings, we’re excited that leather has gone from the everyday to the unexpected.

2. Pointy toe shoes: As much as we love platforms, we’re excited pointy toe shoes are here to stay. Whether you love flats or heels, the sleek line of a pointed toe will help elongate your legs and add an extra dose of sophistication to your outfit.

3. High-waisted pants: We have a soft spot for all things 90s, so we’re pretty excited high-waisted jeans are going to stick around for a while. Plus, the retro cut is both flattering and fuss-free.

4. Chain Link: Chances are, most of the jewelry you own sits on a chain. But chains are no longer just for holding charms. Chain link jewelry has taken center stage as a statement piece all of its own. From necklaces to belts to bold prints, we’re glad this glamorous trend won’t be going anywhere soon.

5. Mixed Prints: Bold prints are perfect for making a statement, but mixed prints? Even better. We’ve been loving pairing unexpected pieces together this year, and we’re expecting to go even bigger, brighter, and bolder in 2013.

What was your favorite trend of 2012?
