WTT: Rose Colored Glasses On

Hey everyone! Welcome back to What The Trend!  If you’re new to this, intro: I’m Amanda, and we’re gonna talk about things that are trendy and gab like besties.  If you’ve been following, welcome back!

So let’s just get right into things.  This year, it seems like reminiscing about the 90’s has been a trend in and of itself.  Being a born and raised in the 90’s child myself, I can’t help but feel by nostalgic heartstrings tinge seeing pops of this style all around.  BUT one style from another era seems to have taken on the street style of 2017. COLOR tinted sunglasses.  Not to immediately diss these statement making accessories, I suppose I’ve just always took a more logical approach to eye wear.  I can’t help but picture watching “Billboard Dad” with a young Mary Kate and Ashley( a 1998 classic where the trend is also V prevalent to those days) sporting these trendy items and thinking to my 7 year old self….don’t their eyes hurt? Is everything changed to pink when you wear those?

Nonetheless, celebs and style experts alike are bringing this trend back to life.  Let’s open the portal to the past; the 70’s to 2017:

Okay so for starters, some of your fave celebrity icons from today have been rocking these in various shades.  Hailey Baldwin has been seen shading herself from the sun (get it, SHADE(s)…pun.)  in this trend and color coordinating it properly. A positive about this trend and what makes it appealing for me at least, is the opportunity to add even more vibrancy to a look with a minimal effort. Minimal effort in the summer heat, AND still looking cute to boot? I’m in.

As we take this away from the starlight of the celebrity life, back down to the streets in the sunlight, style expert Chronicles of Her amplifies her french girl chic vibe with a rose-colored tone.  She also explains in her post here, that she found a yellow pair at Ebay for just $2!! Affordable fashion? YES please!

Bringing this trend into a relate-able everyday look, style blogger Isabella Leyva shows how to work the yellow glow pairing it with yet a second trend with her sheer floral top. I love how she makes her style look like any one of us can look as adorable as she does.  She brought this trend back down to basic, which is exactly what I like to live for at Eat Your Glitter. Basic, but not boring!

Okay so after seeing this trend working in different situations, I think it is totally doable! BUT, I also think it’s not worth splurging half your paycheck on.  Let’s look into some more affordable options.

MIRROR-OR-TINTED-AVIATOR-STYLE-SUNGLASSES-MEN-WOMEN-NEW-LENS-FRAME-100-UVGuys, don’t discount Ebay.  It has the power to your cheap trends.  These are only $6.99!! And if you feel inspired by that $2 find I mentioned previously, I’m sure with some further diving you can find yourself a great deal at this site.  Shop them!

Ugh maybe I’m a sucker for a fun novelty item, but come on. These are PRIME summer vibes, and I found them on Amazon so pun #2 for this post!!  Although these could be for the more ambitious style seeker, they would be the talk of any pool party you attend this summer.  Luau theme anyone? Find them on Amazon for only $2.46!!

Looking for a more sophisticated shape? These are from the motherland of surprising fashion finds, Target.  They are $16.99 which seems steep compared to those amazon finds, but they are slightly more refined in style if you’re looking for a more subtle try at the trend.

So, What The Trend do we think? I’m Sold.  Especially after finding this trend for super affordable prices, I am all in for rocking color tinted eye wear adding a super fun, and bold statement to your looks!  I would even venture to say I wouldn’t need to wear concealer to hide my under eye bags because they will be all ~*jazzed~* up through the magic of color.

I hope you enjoyed this edition of WTT! I’ll be keeping an extra EYE out for more! (I did it, 3 puns, 3 strikes, I’m outta here 😉 )

WTT White Jeans in the Winter?

Welcome back to What The Trend!  I know it’s been quite a while since I’ve posted, but what better time to reconnect with old friends than around the holidays?!  

So today’s topic is something that I have been noticing that has been breaking the fashion rules. Wearing white jeans in the winter.  So like any fashion loving styling abiding citizen, my initial reaction to seeing this was “WHATTT in the style world are you doing! The style gods are shunning you!…..or are they?”  After letting this trend settle in, my eyes adjusted.  Seeing many bloggers and style icons pull of this look with a classic pair of OTK boots, my style rule book readjusted.

Check out this babe rocking winter white like a pro!  Winter white can be one of the hardest looks to pull off.  I believe this look takes some serious pre-planning.  Finding just the right shade of white to complement the outfit is the key to this trend.

Blogger, Sydne Style, is rocking this look.  The monochrome blend of black and white becomes a classic look rather than an off season faux pas!

And finally A Southern Drawl blogger, Grace Wainwright, found the perfect shade of suade to pair with this transitional look into the colder months.  

Feeling style inspired? Me too, until I attempted this look and felt my fashion genes (see what I did there? 😉 ) had betrayed all my trendy knows.

So, if you are thinking of attempting this trend, here are my final tips on rocking the winter white jean:

  1. Find the Perfect white jean for YOU.  Finding jeans can already be a daunting process so if you don’t already own a pair that you know look killer on you, maybe this trend isn’t worth spending the money on the 2-3 times you may be wearing it this winter. 
  2. TRY IT ON BEFORE you are rushing around with 5 minutes in the morning and decide this is the time to explore your trend setter side.  This could lead to panic and late Monday morning havoc. 
  3. If you don’t have the pairings, this look could easily look like a mistake.  Tall boots, suede materials, a cozy sweater are all things that pull this look into a winter vibe.  Without these things put together, the jeans will stand out and begin to look out of season, making the style gods right….and I sure hate when other people are right. 
  4. Have fun & follow your inspiration!  If you see a blogger, friend or style icon rock this trend follow what they do! Observe how they pulled the look together and then compare it to your own closet.  If you don’t own those excessively expensive Stewart Weitzman OTK boots, don’t kill yourself forcing the trend.  

Okay so to sum things up, this trend is a style RISK!  I am all for supporting breaking the style rules, but be true to you and your closet!  I can say as a babe on a budget that this one isn’t worth breaking the bank for.  

So, if the jeans fit, rock ’em!

xxo,

Amanda
