Stunning Vintage Fashion Trends That You Need To Try Right Now!



vintage fashion

Okay, two words: Vintage and Fashion! If this doesn’t get you all excited for the winter season ahead, then we don’t know what will. Gone are the days when vintage fashion was considered outdated and shabby. Now, all thanks to the fashion-gurus and err, The Kardashians may be, we have an endless array of vintage wardrobe designs for our everyday fashion needs.

If you don’t have much know-how about vintage fashion trends, then worry no further because if you keep reading this piece, by the end of this, you will have a pretty solid grasp of vintage fashion trends that you can incorporate into your everyday style. So without further ado, let’s begin:

1.     Fanny packs

Oh my god! Did we just say fanny packs? You bet, we did! Back when Fanny packs were introduced, if there was anyone to whom they were important, they were the athletes. However now, people from the fashion realm are also beginning to loosen up to this particular fashion trend. Fanny packs were considered hideous, but now they are considered as a ‘bold’ fashion statement. Just wear it along your waist or across your body, and look fabulous in no time!

2.     Oversized Blazers

Nothing can bring back the old John Travolta vibe better than some oversized blazers! Although, this style was an 80’s essential, but turns out 2019 has warmed up to it just the same. You can pair your skinny jeans with a buttoned-down oversized blazer and rock this minimally iconic fashion trend at work. Plus, if you are looking for newer options to flaunt oversized blazers, then put that high-speed internet connection of yours to a proper use. You will be surprised at how many options you can find over there!

3.     Mom Jeans

Although, the term started off as a mere SNL joke, but who knew it would end up becoming this iconic? Now, jeans with a high waistband and baggy fit are known as mom jeans. The good thing about this trend is how versatile it is. You can pair it with a loose jacket or a fitted t-shirt, either way, you are going to set a pretty awesome fashion statement and that’s for sure.

4.     Hair Scrunchies

If you like tying your hair into ponytails or hair buns, then good news! Scrunchies are back and we all can die in peace now! With the aesthetically gnarly look and feel of this hair tie, you can create a funky and vintage fashion look. You can tie your hair into a half hair bun, or you can make a high ponytail. Anything you do, one thing is for sure that we will dig it!

5.     Hair clips

If you like keeping your wardrobe minimal all while rocking a nice and funky hairdo, then hair clips are here and they’re not going anywhere! Either make a nice braid or leave your hair untied with hairclips anointed on your hair, and you will certainly pull off both an elegant and funky look at the same time.

6.     Stripes!

If there is one fashion trend that we are here for, then that has got to be ‘striped’ everything! Whether it is a striped jumper or pants, one thing is for sure, nothing speaks ‘chic’ more than a striped outfit. Doesn’t matter if you like your stripes vertical or horizontal, your fashion statements are going to be packed with an oomph, that’s for sure.

7.     Puffy Sleeves

If there is one trend that has gotten us particularly excited, then that is definitely the one with puffy sleeves. Wear them during any season of the year, either formally or occasionally, nothing speaks volume of trendiness, than this. You can pair your puffy sleeved top with a frilly skirt or with a pair of skinny jeans. Not to mention, you can even raise your puffy-sleeved game by throwing a nice hat on top.

8.     Everything Neon!

This trend might make you cringe, but as long as it’s out there, we’re going to appreciate it, period! Neon colored clothes have been in the spotlight for a pretty noticeable period and if paired thoughtfully, they can actually look really good instead of turning out to be a total disaster. Ideally, we’d suggest you go for a neon sweatsuit or a fitted t-shirt with loosely fitting baggy jeans. Just keep one thing in mind while playing with a Neon wardrobe and that is you can’t afford to make mistakes.

So Which One is Our Pick?

When it comes to playing with different trendy outfits, all you must remember is that ‘sky is the limit.’ All the trendy vintage outfits that we have mentioned above are just a little teaser. The rest is up to you. You can pair two of the above-mentioned trends together, or you can play with them however you like, the possibilities are just endless.

Trends can be surprising. One time it can promote beige and simple whites and earthy tones, another moment it can go all glittering and glistening. The best part about indulging in fashion is that nothing is ever over, you never know when shoulder pads might become a trend again. However, there are some constants, some all-time favorites that can never go out of style anywhere in the world. One of them being, the much-loved, Hoodies!

These iconic, humble masterpieces of the fashion industry are in for the long haul because they have been through eras and ages. They are here to stay as they are no new-day invention. These garments have had many forms since a whopping three-thousand years.

A hoodie has many forms which can be found everywhere. If you take a look in the printed recollections of the Ancient Greece and Rome, you can see scholars donning them. In the middle age, monks used to wear cape-like garments with hoods attached to them. By the 17th century, women, trying to stay anonymous would wear them. They are so popular that the infamous, grim reaper is also seen with a hood.

The hoodie finally in the modern day world was reincarnated as a sweatshirt with a hood with a drawstring. Some came with a pouched pocket. They were first introduced by Knickerbocker Knitting Company in the 1930s, they were mainly manufactured to keep the athletes warm. Later it was rather speedily adopted by the working-class, considering their comfort and durability. Then came the fashionable 80’s, the era of pop, hip hop, the original Walkman and the original street style urban looks. This is exactly when the youth adopted the hoodie culture and it has remained this way ever since.

The hoodie has changed the course of fashion. They are no longer just garments you wear in the winters and fall. They have evolved to be worn any time of the year. Many popular business associates and entrepreneurs are seen wearing it, defying convention and changing the monotonous office culture. Hoodie can entered and changed the way the world perceives power. The higher the authority the more casual they dress.

What makes Hoodie a perfect piece of garment? May be it’s the warmth or the protected feel of it. Mostly because of the sense of anonymity it gives. Once you have the hood on, you are in your zone. Psychologically, people might be feeling strong and confident because of it. One of the major reasons people love it is because of the feeling of oneness it gives. You can call it your group, your clan or your crew. No wonder it is a matter of a much heated debate about its origin.

Partying in tuxedos, long-sleeved shirts or collared Polos are outdated now. This is also because a hoodie is a perfect blend of casual and upbeat style. It is the new cool. But there are some things that you need to know when opting for a hoodie at a party.

  • Go for a pullover hoodie, not a zip-up one.
  • Unless it is a party with a bunch of close friends at a not-so-exclusive club, do not go for printed hoodies.
  • Be aware of the kind of party you are about to attend. Dress accordingly.

Of course this means, there is an added pressure to look the best while you are in a hoodie. One needs to look stylish and the fashion sense should be on point. Here are ways to look your best in a hoodie this New Year’s party-

The Casual Look

Never underestimate the power of an understated look. It’s a given that a hoodie will make you look different and really cool. Pair it with a denim jacket. Just pick your blue and pair it with a perfect grey hoodie and black skinny jeans and sneakers. It can never go wrong.

The Star of the Party Look

It is a New Year’s party, start your fresh year with a dapper look. The one that takes risk. Carefully color co-ordinate and pick a fabulous hoodie and pair it with an uber-cool bomber jacket. Wear denim jeans and sneakers with a hint of bling. This look has Hit written all over it.

Back to the Classics Look

You can always be what a hoodie originally represents. The early street-grunge style. Wear a baggy hoodie and jeans. Keep your hair ruffled. Think of yourself a free-style graffiti artist. Add some bling to your look. If you carry the look, add a cap. Pair it with casual white sneakers and you are good to rock the party.

Classic Look Hoodie

The Formal yet Informal Look

It is totally understandable that you are at a party and you have your seniors with you. It is a casual party but you don’t want to go overboard with your fashion sense. Play safe and go for the neutral colors. Black is perfect for both the moods. Wear a quality black branded hoodie. Pair it with an overcoat or a leather jacket, good pair of dark-colored jeans and earthy-toned ankle boots. Wear a watch. The best of both worlds is right here in this look.

“Making a statement” Look

You can either make a statement by dressing yourself well or quite literally make a statement. There is something better than a hoodie. A hoodie with words! Speak your mind with custom-made hoodies with words or dialogues written all over it. If you like bling, there are words sewed with sequins.

The world of fashion has so much to offer. Have fun with your look.

A Guide to Choosing Your First Designer Bag



Courtesy of Zumer Sport

Whether you’ve been saving up for several years or money is no object, finding your first designer bag can be a daunting experience, especially if you don’t know where to look or what to consider beforehand. There are so many emotions that are wrapped up in money and how it is used, so taking the leap and buying a bag that suits your personality and style should never be taken lightly. 

Whether you want a designer bag to take with you to work or you’re wanting something fancy to go with your outfit for a date night, here are a few factors to consider before splashing out on your first designer bag.

Set Your Budget

Even if you have your heart set on a particular designer bag, that doesn’t mean you have the funds to afford it. With so many different brands on the market to pick from, it can be hard to know where to start, so to ensure you’re confident with your purchase, you will need to set a budget from the get-go, which will mean you are spending within your means. The last thing you want to do is find yourself in tons of debt or unable to pay the rent at the end of the month. When splashing out on a luxury item like a designer bag, you will want to have peace of mind that you can afford it.

Define the Purpose

Once you’ve worked out a budget, you will need to have a think about the purpose of the bag and how it can benefit you in day to day life. Getting good use out of your designer bag is important, as there’s no point splurging out on something that’s going to collect dust in your closet. Whether you want a bag to take with you to work or you’re off on vacation, there are several questions that you should ask yourself before making your final decision. 

There are more difficult questions that you will need to face too, such as how much care you take of your bags, and whether you plan to take your bag with you through all the elements. Durability should be at the top of your priority list, especially as you will be investing in a designer bag that’s built to last. Having a bag that fits into your lifestyle perfectly and is functional will mean you’ve made the right decision.

Size and Silhouette

If you have decided that you will use your designer bag for work purposes, the cost per wear will give you less anxiety. You may have had to save up for the bag for a number of years, so it’s only natural that you will want to get good use out of it. When finding a bag that fits into a more corporate environment, you will want to select a bag that has structure, as well as a bit of room to store your day-to-day essentials. If your bag will be used for special events, you will still want to pick a bag that comfortably accommodates all your essentials. While a small designer bag may look cute and go well with an outfit, if it’s unable to fit everything you want in it, the chances are it’s not right for you.

Color, Texture, and Material of Your Bag

After establishing how and where you will be using your bag, it’s time to have a think about the nitty-gritty side of things. The color, texture, and material of the bag are all huge factors to think about before making your purchase. For example, if you’re after a smooth leather designer bag, while they look sophisticated and beautiful, they can show up scratches more easily, whereas textured leathers are known to last longer, meaning they can be perfect for travel or work.

When it comes to finding the right color designer bag, you will want to select one that goes with many of your outfits. While a bag may look eye-catching and striking on the shelf, if you’re unable to team it well with your clothing, you may find it best to stick with neutral colors. Black is likely to be your best bet, however, gray and navy can be just as complementary. If you do want a pop of color, you may be able to get away with a vibrant red.

Finding Your Bag

Now you have an idea of some of the things to look out for when picking a designer bag, the last step is to do your research into the different brands available. To start, you should hit the internet and visit sites like SSENSE that sell a range of designer brands. If you’re after saint Laurent bags, for example, you can check out their wide selection. SSENSE also sells a variety of clothing, accessories, and shoes.

We all want to look and feel good with a designer bag on our shoulder, so it’s important that you’re confident with your final choice. As long as you take all the factors listed into consideration, you are bound to find a bag that suits your personality and lifestyle.

5 Best Outfits for Staying Warm All Winters



winter fashion clothes

Flaunt your trench coats, scarves, and furs this winter. As compared to summers, winters give us a lot more options and freedom to dress up. Layers become almost mandatory when those chilly winds hit. When it is freezing cold outside, no matter how many clothes you already have in your wardrobe, they seem to run out pretty quick!

You become more creative when it comes to mixing and matching in winters. I love to experiment with layering options. Since I’m a huge fan of ethnic wear, I was looking up Pakistani dresses online USA. And not only I discovered quality winter fabric, but also a great range of shawls and scarves.

Even in the darkest and the coldest days, pulling off great looks and styles is possible. Let’s help you with that!

Top 5 Pro Dressing Hacks for winters

  1. Become a Pro at Layering.
  2. Give a New Life to Your Coats by Belting Them Up.
  3. Steal the Show with the Right Boots.
  4. Embrace Furs.
  5. Invest in Gloves, Scarves, and Show-Stopping Hats.

Become a Pro at Layering

Doesn’t layering always trend in the winter! That’s because it is immensely practical when it’s freezing outside. Don’t hesitate from experimenting with layers. Let your creativity work and you will end up looking amazing. Wearing a turtleneck under a jacket, sweater, or coat will keep you warm and trendy. You can also pair a dress or skirt with pants instead of tights. You can experiment with unusual clothing items while layering. And it can end up in some amazing combos.

If you live in a place that is really really cold, then you will probably have to add more layers. adding stocking or tights under your jeans should work. You can also curl up scarves around your neck along with a long coat. Go for practical colors, which can be worn easily in matching or contrast.

Give a New Life to Your Coats by Belting Them Up

No one has enough number of coats in winter. By the middle of the season, you will already be bored with the coat options you have. That’s where you should let your creativity kick in! Start belting up your coats. We usually prefer wearing coats casually without buttoning or belting them up. But when that starts looking monotonous, you can perk up your look by belting them up. You can even invest in some quality belts to spice up your look. Cinch your waist with a contrasting belt to make it look brand new. This styling hack will work for your short coats, blazers, trench coats, and any type of coats you may have!

Take inspiration from how fashionistas on social media belt their puffer coats!

Steal the Show with the Right Boots

You cannot pull off a catchy winter look without a pair of great boots! Invest in a few pairs to go with most of your outfit options. Get your hands on one of the over-the-knee ones too. They look classy and timeless. You can flaunt them with a nice short dress. Go for ankle boots with a dress or cuffed jeans. Dressing stylishly is all about how you carry it. If you do it right, people are going to notice!

Embrace Furs

Furs are perhaps the best thing about those freezing months! Furs or even faux furs are expensive and we don’t get to wear them around the year except for these few months. Don’t just wear furs in a clichéd, The Great Gatsby’s way! Those are a little too formal. Since you have invested a lot in it, experiment with casual styling options too!

You can instantly upgrade your outfit, even if it is too casual, by throwing a fur. Invest in statement fur toppers and accent pieces to liven up the winter outfits. You can even buy coats with fur collars. The possibilities are endless!

Invest in Gloves, Scarves, and Show-Stopping Hats

Don’t just finish your budget splurging on coats and boots this year! Spare some to invest in the hats of your dreams!

You are going to be in this season for a good two months. You can break the monotony with a statement hat. Also, it’s perhaps the first thing that someone notices about you, so make sure it is something that grasps the attention!

In addition, you can also wear scarves in a number of ways. Don’t settle for wrapping it around your neck every time. Check out those retro looks of tying a scarf around the head or belting it on your jacket.  Wearing waterproof gloves is another interesting idea. Invest in fun accessories like winter headbands and earmuffs. They will add a pop of color. I usually buy women dresses online but when it comes to scarves and hats, the online options are endless. You get to choose from an extensive range of stuff. And guess what. They are not even expensive!
