Trends come and go…and come again, and then go again. Some stay for a long period of time, while others have their 15 minutes of fame. Regardless, trends in fashion are the most powerful pieces of knowledge one can hone in order to get their cred in the industry, which is why all fashion enthusiasts will agree, it’s crucial to know what will be coming into style next, and what is oh-so-out of season- god forbid we wear a style that has been officially dubbed as out of style by fashion experts and then get caught in the act! That is why we here at Glam Damn It have found a few popular trends that have taken over the style world for one, two, even four seasons, and are predicted to finally retire come fall 2012. Take a peek at these looks and be ‘in the know’ for the seasons to come!
Runway shows are ushering in new trends reaching far beyond just clothing and accessories, thanks to the insurgence of backstage beauty coverage gaining almost as much popularity as the shows themselves. Hair and makeup, as seen on models from your favorite shows, are gaining space in the limelight and quickly setting trends for the season. Nails too are no exception, and direct re-iterations of clothing trends have been popping up on fingers and toes everywhere.
We’ve rounded up our favorite nail trends taken straight from the Spring 2012 runways, and let you know how to get the look with the same shades used backstage:
Dressing for the weather is always a daunting task this time of year, especially given the erratic weather patterns experienced as of late.
80 degrees and not a cloud in the sky one week, dreary and cold the next...it’s enough to give a girl a true case of Seasonal Affect Disorder.
The good news?
Spring is finally here and the temperatures will only rise from here, so chase away what’s left of those bad weather blues with a pair of bright, punchy rain boots. Not only will these make facing the inevitable downpours that much more tolerable, but you’ll look stylish and have fun while doing it!
After discovering house music in 2010, I dabbled in the different sects of electronica and found myself in love. In March of 2011, I made my official crossover from rap-enthusiast to househead when I attended Ultra Music Festival. Nearly a year later, I cannot wait to return to my stomping grounds and once again bask in the harmonious music and beating sunshine.
Last year’s festival was an incredible experience, but as a newbie, I had a lot to learn. The low-point of my weekend was when my ticket was ripped off of the lanyard strewn around my neck by a drunken fool. The maniac grabbed the ticket that was hanging above my chest, and ran. Luckily, my mother had always instilled within me the importance of self-defense, so I lunged at the crazy kid who attempted to steal the $275 ticket and returned the item to its rightful owner... me.
Neon is making a victory lap and a successful comeback this spring in all sorts of ways. It made an appearance a few seasons ago, and of course we all remember its big hit in the electric eighties, but is it possible that this somewhat tacky look has come to our spring 2012 making a classy third appearance?
We here at Joonbug have found a few neon favs for this spring that could definitely make the once-was cheap trend, turn into a fashion forward chic look.
Check out our favorite bright pieces that made the Not Your Typical Neon list in the slideshow!
Las Vegas is famous for it's gambling, flashy clubs, and neon lights. To some, it's hideous. To others, it's beautiful- especially when you consider how much of an impact it has on fashion! Just think Gucci Fall 2011 at Milan Fashion Week (left). The bright aqua and violet shown throughout the line wouldn't work anywhere else, but this season, it'll be all over Vegas! Here are some options for any budget:
1. Betsey Bowie Tote in Magenta ($268). We absolutely love this oversized bag by Betsey Johnson! It's bright color makes it stand out against other bags, and the small details like studs and fringe will be present all throughout spring! Plus, the mini lips keychain is far beyond adorable!
