This look of the day, is dedicated not only to one season trend, but to two: the color yellow and the lemon print. They are both huge summer trends, and I actually love them so I wanted to create a look around them. I built the whole outfit around this lemon printed swimsuit which could also be worn as a bodysuit. Since it’s a very bold piece, I chose to pair it with simple oversized white shorts, a white cross body bag, gold accessories, and matching yellow heeled sandals. The combination is very summery, and it’s my recommendation for not only the week, but the whole summer season. You can trade the heels for a pair of flat sandals, and you can party at beach bars or summer clubs all night long, or even travel around the island you’ll be visiting, looking fresh and stylish. You should try it!
You can forget contouring; spring’s new makeup trend is called draping and it’s all about the blush. It’s a makeup technique that is having a comeback from the 80s and 90s. It’s basically like contouring, using different shades of blush and a highlighter to make your good features stand out. Starting just under your cheekbones, use the darker shade of blush in your palettes to define the area, and then mix the lighter shades of blush and work upwards. You can use bold or more natural colors, depending on your likings, and you can create a V shape with the blush going past your temples and over your eyelids (like in the pictures above), working as an eye shadow as well. Use a highlighter product as you would with contouring, and don’t forget to blend everything well for a more natural but glowing result.
As you might know, yellow is having a comeback this spring/summer. Primrose yellow is actually one of the colors Pantone announced in their Spring 2017 Fashion Report. We don’t usually see it in clothes and accessories much, but this has to change, because look how nice it looks on them; it makes any outfit brighter. It goes perfectly well with black or white, but of course you can combine it with other colors as well, like orange, blue, pink, red, to create a nice colorblock outfit. Or you can even wear it head to toe to create a total monochrome yellow look. That would also look amazing. No matter the combinations, it will definitely make your outfits stand out, and we totally recommend you try it!

I recently saw a picture of a Gucci bag from the Cruise 2017 collection and suddenly I couldn’t stop thinking about it. Of course I could only make it mine in my dreams, because it costs an arm and a leg, but let’s dream that we have an endless flow of cash. What would you do with it, apart from the usual necessities? I wouldn’t mind giving some of that cash for one of the bags below, with my first choice being the light blue embroidered number you can see in the first photo. Isn’t she a beauty? But all these bags below wouldn’t go unnoticed either. Definitely not… So which one would be YOUR choice for spring/summer 2017?
I’m sure that by now you have already noticed that bell sleeves are having a comeback. I was reluctant to give in to this trend again at first, but it didn’t take me long to surrender. If you combine this trend with the whole blush/dusty/powder pink frenzy that surrounds us lately then you can say that I’ve given in completely. Combine your bell sleeved top/sweater/blouse with a pair of skinny jeans, or a pencil skirt, something fitted in general and then you will surely look very stylish. Since bell sleeves are making a statement by themselves, try to keep the rest of the outfit as minimal as possible. You can pair your tops and dresses with sneakers for stylish casual looks, or with a pair of killer heels for a night out. Are your ready to give in to this trend yet? Here are some items that may help your decision!
