Sophisticated Tie Dye

Off the high fashion runway and into our lives! Tie-dye has had a reputation of being hippie and tacky, but it has proved it can be sophisticated and edgy! Tie-dye represents carefree energy, which in the fashion world translates into beautiful loose fit rompers, flowy maxi dresses, effortless chic tops and more.  Why not take more inspiration from the 70’s and go for a comb over soft, long wavy hairstyle? Keep it fun and fashionable with gladiator sandals, platform heels and lace up sandals. Watch out, tie-dye is making an electrifying comeback.

Sport in Tie-Dye

Start the morning off in high spirits with exciting tie-dye! Incorporate this trend in your everyday wear even down to your active wear. It’s sure to bring great energy and fun to not only your closet, but also to your mood. To pull off an everyday casual tie-dye wear without looking too goofy, we suggest pairing it with neutral pieces. Any additional color, print or patterns with your tie-dye should be incorporated in accessories like bags or sneakers. This way, you can accent your outfit without looking too distracting in the wrong way. Other ways to sport this trend are through swimwear, beach towels and socks!

Be free to comfortably express yourself in tie-dye maxi dresses, rompers and tank tops to keep cool this hot season. Rock this effortless sweet laid-back look.

Loving the tie-dye trend? Why not try making your own tie-dye pattern? This fun project has infinite ways of creating awesome patterns. You’ll probably find all the materials you need around your house like rubber bands, rope, clamps and more! Feel free to venture out using other materials in creating your own pattern. Begin by taking your shirt or whatever apparel you have chosen and wrapping around a wooden board or pipe with the materials you have found. Make sure it’s securely wrapped and dip them in your desired dye color! Let it dry then unravel to see your gorgeous tie-dye pattern!

Groovy Tie Die Nails

Be adventurous this summer and let your nails go wild! Tie-dye was popular and alive in the 70’s era, a groovy time that adored this trend. What better way than to bring its groove back, but to paint your nails tie-dye? One way to create your tie-dye nails is by painting a couple of colors onto a sponge and dabbing onto your nails. Simple as that! Layer more coats for your desired opacity. Another technique you can use is water marbling. Get a cup of water and drop one color at a time in the center of the cup. Once you have a ripple of beautiful colors, use a thin stick like a toothpick and create your desired pattern. Place your nail on top of your design, lift up your finger and there you have a gorgeous colorful print. Paint a layer of topcoat for a quick dry and shine. Summer is the perfect time to have loud tie-dye nails with your outfit.

Style Spotlight: Fringe Skirts

Looking to make a statement this summer? See what’s all the rage with fringe benefits! You’re sure to make a splash with the oh-so-versatile fringe skirt.

The Everyday Fringe Skirt

Fringe skirts are not just for special occasions or festivals! Wear this trend for your everyday wear! Paired with a collared shirt creates a sophisticated clean look but combined with a soft cardigan at the waist makes the look cool, modern and relevant. Wear with a clutch for a put together, sleek look. Whether at the library, office, or your internship- you will be radiating ‘it’ girl vibes.

The Weekend Fringe Skirt

Sexy skirts are just not for body con skirts anymore! Weekends call for mini hemlines. And fringe is no exception to the rule. For a daytime fringe mini skirt look, keep hair casual, with big waves or a messy bun. Contrastingly, when the sun sets, opt for a bright lip, solid accessories and animal print high heel shoes for a va-va- voom moment this Saturday night! Feeling chilly in that little mini? No worries, with a vintage leather jacket, you’ll be warm all night to enjoy the summer fireworks all while rocking retro 70s chic.

The Monochromatic Tassel Skirt

Word from the wise, if there’s a will, there’s a way. We know you love fringe trimming and can’t get enough of it so, if a skirt just isn’t enough fringe for you, try wearing fringe on top as well. These trendy fringe shirts and tops are the perfect match to your skirt. And for the hesitant- don’t worry, you won’t be walking around like Cousin Itt! The secret is in using a monochromatic palette! Having separate fringe pieces breaks up the monotony but keeping a neutral color scheme will allow you to wear even more fringe without making it overbearing. Wear your hair in a low messy ‘do with face framing layers for natural “i-woke-up-like-this” glam.

Color Block Fringe

Don’t be afraid of combining the colorblock trend with fringe. With the right complementing pieces, this look will be dangerously chic.  Wear casually with a neutral toned tee to keep the spotlight on the fringe skirt statement piece. Colorblocking this look with bright, solid accessories will tie in this look together for a perfect take on the fringe skirt trend.

Mama’s 70′s Fringe Skirt

Everyone knows that flared jeans are back but if you are looking for a 70s alternative, the sexy fringe skirt will definitely be your key to taking on the 70s look without being too costume-y. An ode to your mother’s closet, embrace the hippie fringe style skirt! For a day out with the girls, be sure to keep the sun out of your face with round frames and a floppy hat! If you’d like to carry the 70s trend into night, platforms would be just the right touch. A little disco, a little boho – platform heels would not only elongate your legs but keep you on your feet to boogie all night! Just like how mama did it, keep those flower child locks long and wavy and finish it off with the 70s “no makeup” makeup look.

Co-ordinates and Matching Sets 2015

They say that new fashion trends come and go and are often flashbacks from the past- and this season’s hottest trend is no exception! Matching sets are back and it seems that they are here to stay- at least for quite some time! This 70s trend has been so successful because it has been adapted to fit all seasons. If you love getting matchy-matchy for their ease and comfort (and not to mention oh-so-cool vintage look), you’re not alone! We do too! And this is why we’ve compiled a list of ways to wear matching co-ord set all year round.

Summer Matching Sets

Summer is all about relaxing and enjoying the heat while staying cool. What better way to do that than with a sporty mesh matching set outfit? The lightweight mesh material is perfect to let a little breeze in to maintain your effortless sporty look. This trend combines sportswear and retro chic for an overall refreshing take on what it means to be a jock! Thanks to pioneer designer, Alexander Wang, this trend has fully taken off and has shown up not only on the runways but in everyday stores and boutiques as well! To take the look even further, try pairing your mesh matching top and skirt with your favorite sneakers or even sporty lug sole sandals! Still think you’re not sporty enough to rock this trend this summer? Never fear, tropical and tribal prints have got your back. Co-Ordinates - Summer Matching Sets Photo Credit: TheFashionTag.com

College Co-ordinates

For the fall time or for any fashionistas experiencing cooler temperatures right now, these matched sets are for you! Although the popular combo that seem to be gracing women’s fashion clothing are matching crop tops with shorts or skirts, co-ordinates that include a pant make a bold statement. Show the world you mean business with this combo. For an even more collegiate look, try this look with plaid or stripes! Matching Sets - College Co-ordinates Photo Credit: juliacoejj.blogspot.com

Winter Winning Co-ord Sets

The days of sunshine are gone but your days of style and comfort are not! Stay warm with a cable knit matching two piece! To ensure maximum coverage, try pairing your look with thigh high boots. For a night out on the town, long sleeve and midi skirt co-ordinates are sure to provide more coverage all while channeling your inner glam à la Kim Kardashian.

Spring Says…Matched Sets!

After months of hibernating indoors, the sun is finally creeping out which only means one thing- time for skirts! Spring is the perfect time for full skirts and to show off your feminine side! Of course, Spring means none other than – florals! In the hysterical words of Miranda Priestly (The Devil Wears Prada), “Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.” We know, we know, florals for spring is nothing new, but in co-ords? It is quite refreshing! When was the last time you wore florals from head to toe and it was not your kindergarten picture day? If you can’t stand the thought of florals for the spring, other adorable alternatives include lace and pastel. To amp up your spring look even more, make it a 70s outfit with some platforms and some oversized sunnies and you will make lasting impressions everywhere. Your mom’s closet just may be just your secret weapon this year! Matching Sets 2015 - Spring Matched Sets Photo Credit: TheFashionTag.com

Fringe Fashion Trend 2015

 

Fringe Fashion - Boho Fashion Trend

Photo Credit: thefashiontag.com

Summer is here and so is fringe fashion! Fringe has made its fair share of appearances at so many music festivals in recent years, – just ask Vanessa Hudgens! But fringe has been around since the days of groovy patterns and disco weekends. The classic trend is continually being reinvented in unconventional ways as seen on affordable handbags, chain necklaces, heels, swim suits, and even on kimonos. This timeless trend has been underestimated and can be incorporated into so many other summer looks for a refreshing take on fringe.

Not So Basic Fringe

Want to be part of the fringe movement but don’t want to look like you’re trying too hard? Fringe accessories will be your best friend this season. Rather than your usual boho fringe handbag, opt for perhaps a fringe bib necklace! Paired with a plain tee, skinny jeans and booties, it creates an effortlessly cool look.  Want to be even more daring? Fringe earrings may be your holy grail. Not too much yet just enough to take the spotlight, fringe earrings will not only give you just the right touch of bling to your outfit but also highlight your facial features! They are an easy choice if you are on the go and need that perfect touch of rugged sparkle.

Office Fringe

For a more put together feel, incorporate some polished pieces with a fringe skirt, such as high heel pumps or stilettos.  If heels aren’t your thing, closed toe pointed flats would do just the trick in still achieving that calm, cool, collected career woman vibe. Keep your hair flowy to keep the casual vibe of the boho look or take it up a notch with a sophisticated top knot.

Fringe Swim

Think fringe fashion is for only earthy Coachella-esque fashion? Think again. Fringe has taken over swimwear this season! Think tie dye, dip dye, solids, printed,-you name it, and it’s been fringed! How to stand out from the crowd this summer with your fringe swimsuit you ask? Top off your poolside ensemble with a floppy hat, layered statement necklace, or even an arm cuff. Any of these combos are sure to be shoo-ins for success whether you’re hitting the day clubs or chilling by the pool for your weekly mimosa date.

Fancy Fringe

Last not but least, if daytime fringe makes you yawn, never fear- fringe has taken over the night life as well. Sure, we’re used to seeing fringe on moccasin boots and booties but who would’ve thought fringe could look ever so good on a pair of high heel shoes? The secret lies in the metallics! Style tip: Pair your fringe heels with a blazer with crisp edges for a Gaga inspired ensemble! Fringe fashion has changed women’s fashion apparel forever!

Slide Into Summer with Sandals

Slide Into Summer with Sandals

The Best Sandal Styles Spring 2015

Summer is just around the corner and you know what that means: time to flash your awesome pedicure! What better way to do that than wearing your favorite pair of strappy sandals? I’m here to give you the low down on the hottest sandal styles this season. From comfortable lounging sandals to ones you can dress up for a date, Makemechic has it all. So what are you waiting for? Let’s check it out.

Flip Flop Fun

What I love about spring and summer is that you can play up fun colors and designs, especially with flip flops. Perfect for the beach or even just a casual day out, flip flops are so comfortable. They are great shoes to throw into a tote and take on-the-go if you ever need to switch out your shoes because they are so lightweight. You can even lounge around the house with these because they are so easy to slip on and off. Rock some flip flops with neon tones for a more eye-catching look!

Flatform Heaven

Flatform Sandals for Summer

Another hot trend this spring is the flatform sandal. Basically a hybrid between a sandal and wedge, flatforms give you the comfort of a sandal with the elevation of a heel. You can totally wear these for a casual day out or dress it up for a date. On a casual day, you can pair flatforms with some denim jeans; roll up the cuff to highlight your shoes even more! For a date outfit, wear your flatforms with a dress to give it a feminine touch.

Footbed Frenzy

The ever popular Birkenstock sandal is back again this season! These types of sandals are raved about due to their extremely cushioned, cork-filled sole and roomy toe area. It also has a thick leatherette body that makes it much easier to wear for long periods compared to flat sandals. Perfect for everyday wear, these sandals will definitely stay long into summer. Slip into some footbed sandals and your feet will thank you.

Give your stiletto pumps a break and slip into some stylish sandals!
