trending now: comfy bralettes that double as micro crop tops

With the days getting longer and the air getting warmer, summer fashion trends are officially on the radar. If previous summers have taught me anything, it’s that the classic crop top isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. We knew crop tops were going to play a big role in 2021, and we knew they were going to be tiny. Many trends are redefined season after season, but with the crop top it is more like reinvented. Designs may come and go, but the crop top is here to stay. The perk: they’re casual, cool and one of the most versatile pieces in your wardrobe. What’s new in crop top trends for 2021 One statement: they just keep getting shorter. Dare to go bare? The bra top (aka micro crop top) is the new crop top for 2021. Skin is in, and body positivity is here to stay. Crops have evolved from showing a hint of mid-drift to downright running out in your skivvies. And truthfully, something about it feels quite liberating. Plus, there’s a style for …

b.tempt’d review | intimates for every woman and every occasion

Wispy laces, modern silhouettes. I had been in need of an intimates refresh, and this season’s updates came with all of the upgrades one could desire. While fashion selects are often redefined each season, one must never forget to keep their underthings in order. There’s something empowering in being completely put together. For me, that starts from body to soul, and each layer that we choose to dress ourselves in. In this b.tempt’d review, I will touch on an assortment of essential pieces that I’ve integrated into my lingerie collection, and how each serves a different purpose in my personal and professional lifestyle. First, let’s talk about some key elements every woman should consider when selecting their delicates – fashion and function When wearing bras, both comfort and style must be considered.

minimal style capsule wardrobe essentials

items from my wardrobe I always re-wear over and over

The absolute chaos, hangers pressed so tightly together you could get blisters from pulling them apart – we all know what it feels like to have too many pieces crammed in our wardrobe. And, as much as we like the idea of a truly minimalist wardrobe, sometimes it’s not as easy as it sounds. If you’re trying to create some extra space, I’ve shared a few of my hacks for minimizing to a capsule wardrobe. But one of the most important factors we often overlook, is: Don’t purchase items you’ll rarely wear in the first place. Let’s be honest. Most of us only wear our favorite 20 or so items, and the rest of our clothes sits untouched month after month… sometimes longer. What if you only purchased those reworn items? With dozens of pieces arriving every month for features on Day in my Dreams fashion blog, I’ve had the opportunity to wear new outfits just about every day.
