I would like to say that the band tee (a t-shirt representing a band … usually from the 70’s) is a trend right now but I think this look has become a staple in many wardrobes. It’s an easy way to take a casual outfit and make it cool. You could style the simple T with jeans, skirts or even take the look to the office by adding a blazer (see below outfit.) I will say, be mindful of prices when shopping for this item as they can run from as low as $15 to as high as $100! Best places to shop for this look? Women’s options, Urban Outfitters, H&M & Anthropologie and for Men Lucky Brand and John Varvatos.
You will notice Animal print fabric trends just about everywhere these days, and it’s here to stay right through 2019. I’m sure this won’t be my first outfit post on this theme, more to come for fall!
T-shirts, cardigans, dresses, shoes in zebra, cheetah and snake prints and many more animal designs are being shown from low fashion H&M, mid range Nili Lotan to top designers like Gucci. I’m thinking this may not be just a trend but is now considered forever chic.
I have a couple of cheetah print tops circulating in my wardrobe but I wanted to try something new that was a little out of my comfort zone. I purchased a snake print skirt from Mango, which to be honest, reminded me of something I would have worn in the 90’s. It’s midi length, satin feeling with a soft snake print. I will say I’m pleasantly surprised how often I’ve had it on rotation throughout my wardrobe this season, as well as the numerous ways it could be styled!
Look 1 – I put the (I like to call them the Meghan Markle heal) Stuart Weitzman and a casual denim shirt from one my my favorite brands Rails. The thought of making a heel feel more casual with denim is a personal style I like to go for.
Look 2 – Printed band t’s are fun pieces to mix with other different styles including a printed snake skin skirt! This is my fave of the three looks with the classic Gucci slide. It’s casual but fun and very Vancouver.
Look 3 – Dressing up a skirt using a snake print is pretty easy by just adding some black accessories – you can wear any black top and black heel. I went for a cropped knotted-T as it’s cute with the subtle detail. Two key points from this look are: black is an easy go-to for dressing up with heals which really change the look!
