all white dresses the new lbd?

Dresses, hats, lost scarves and bags littered the floor. It’s apparent music is playing loudly somewhere nearby, but it’s muffled by a few doorways between. A seemingly lost but determined girl dodges jagged heels and scattered garments in a maze formation. It’s closet cleaning day. An activity that commences in my home at least every few months, this is the time when ever item is pulled from its place (or misplacement), steamed, sorted and either refreshed back into place or discarded for the girlfriends to sort through in the upcoming days. This particular episode of wardrobe organization, I noted one distinct shift in the pieces hanging in my “keep” division: less are the little black dresses, and more are the little white dresses, which begs the question: are white dresses the new lbd? photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | little white dress c/o:DAVID LERNER | little black dress c/o:DAVID LERNER Sure, they both have their place in this world.

2 ways to wear joggers

Athleisure continues it’s dominance in mainstream fashion. And it’s no wonder. With active lifestyles on the go, we had been screaming for this one for years, “please, give us a fashion trend that’s cute and versatile.” Cramming in a full day’s work, errands, a few precious moments at the gym, and let’s not forget happy hour… no one has time to change a dozen times for each activity on the planner. Athliesure is sport activewear that transitions into day wear. So what’s the difference between your gym clothes and something appropriate to wear for a $7 beer and app combo with the girls? Consider your accessories, materials and overall presentation. To pull off the athleisure look flawlessly, opt for swapping your trainers for slides, or do the opposite and keep your trainers on with your suiting. The idea is to mix it up, keep it fresh, and don’t try too hard to follow the rules. One of the most comfortable elements of the trend: joggers. photography: KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | wool joggers …

white, nude, grey – spring fashion in neutrals

It’s starting to feel like spring… and that means breaking out the lighter colors from your wardrobes (not that they’ve been tucked away). We all know white in winter is no longer a cliche, but something about that warm seasonal sun makes the bright shades in fashion all the more glorious. Here are a few spring style tips and fashion forecasting tidbits for staying on trend this season. What to place on high-rotation this spring? Distressed jeans are the number-one spring fashion comeback of the season. Don’t miss out! From worn-in wear to raw-edge fray – it’s time to bring back the 90’s grunge in a whole new way. The more raw, the better. Look for unexpected hems with loose strings, ragged ends and high-low trim. Too fast for your pace? Try a classic skinny with some heavy distressing at the knee. And while casual has been all the rage, don’t be afraid to dress up your spring and summer fashion. Pumps are also on a comeback, and if you don’t have the essentials covered be …

new years resolutions 101 and how to stick with them

Just kidding, if I had the answer to that I’d have flat 6 pack abs from a rigorous active routine, be juicing every morning, and actually be taking the time to do my hair on weekdays. Let’s face it, we all struggle with meeting the expectations that are put on us by friends, family, coworkers and worse – ourselves. And there’s no other time that’s more apparent than New Years. Somehow inspired by the unmarked calendar, people gaze steadily forward. Sure that this time, they’re going to follow through. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not discouraging you. In fact, New Year’s is one of my favorite holidays as it represents a fresh start, new beginnings and yes – New Years resolutions. I quite savor the time of year to look forward with an untarnished canvas laying before me. But it’s important to remember amidst your ambitions, not to get lost in trying to become someone whom we are not, or becoming discouraged when we fail.
