With the holidays on the way, now is the perfect time to don sequins. Sometimes, we find shiny and sparkly garments tough to wear throughout the rest of the year but the festive season gives us a good reason. Whether it’s for cocktails, holiday season parties, or new year’s eve bashes are all a great way to celebrate. I’ve decided to share a few of my great looks from some of my favorite fashionistas.
Here is Wendy Nguyen from Wendy’s Lookbook.
Laura Narayansingh is an architect and Monday Wear designer who has not disappointed since her first Monday Wear collection debut. HER – the LNMW19 debuted two nights ago and some of the pieces have already sold out. Can you believe that? I would definitely consider that a sign of a successful designer!
The Classic LN
Let’s be honest, some trends we love, and just cannot get enough of and others we loathe and wonder why anyone thought it was a good idea. Sometimes, my mind changes though. For one, I used to hate skinny jeans and peep toe pumps as a teenager. I also couldn’t understand why anyone thought leggings were suitable bottoms. Today, I own countless pairs of skinny jeans and somewhere in my college partying life I owned quite a few pairs of peep toe pumps as well. And if you ask anyone that knows me personally, I own multiple pairs of leggings, and I find them to be extremely comfortable, and think they offer a wide range of motion.
- Matching sets –
at the beginning of this trend season I thought that matching sets were cute. Who wouldn’t love to wear high-waist paints with a flowing crop top in the same print? Now, I am so over it. After seeing pictures of almost ALL of the attendees at a soca event in varying palm and floral prints I definitely think I have seen every single fast fashion version of matching sets and they should all be burnt (except this is bad for the environment, a waste of fabric, and isn’t good sustainable fashion practice but you get my point.
While perusing Pinterest for a very specific style of garment, I went down a rabbit hole on contemporary wedding ensembles and of course I just had to share these with you. They almost make me wish I was walking down the aisle and had reason to wear one myself! They’re all a modern take on wedding ensembles that hold on to the traditional aspects of a full on gown. They’re pantsuits and they’re just as elegant and sophisticated as their traditional counterparts.
I have been super taken with high-waist, flow-y maxi skirts lately. You’ll probably be seeing a number of outfit posts with me in one. I like that they are feminine, offer coverage, and can create great peek-a-boo leg effects when slits are involved.
