Today is Tuesday which means it’s time for another Trendy Tuesday feature!  Today’s trend is one that I’m not sure I can follow but would love to try.  Graphic prints on pants.  I’m seeing these everywhere but I don’t know that’s it is one I can manage.  My hips and thighs aren’t exactly my favorite body parts and pants with highly visible graphics that draw the eye to those exact parts isn’t typically what I go for.  But, let’s focus on these nonetheless.  A lot of the common designs that I have seen are floral patterns.  But there are also polka dots, animal print and other swirly designs.

Now if I were to try this trend, I found a pair at Target that I think I would be able to handle.

Snake Print Denim from Target.com

Yes, it is basically a black pair of denim with a slight gray snake print design.  Baby steps, people.  Baby steps.

Do you like printed denim?  Was it something you jumped into all the way or did you just dip a toe in the shallow end?

Happy Trending!

After taking a short break from this topic, it’s time to return to one of my favorite segments, “Trendy Tuesdays.”  Today’s topic is a fun one in my opinion…  College style fun.

I’m not talking about sweatpants and hoodies (although that may be what I spend a good majority of my time in while on campus); I’m talking letterman jackets and other school-inspired looks.  I’ve seen this look in a few different fashion magazines and websites and even while shopping in my local mall, and we aren’t exactly a fashion hotbed around here.

So what exactly does this look entail?  Let’s take a closer look.

One of the big looks I’ve noticed, that I mentioned above, is the letterman jacket.

This is a fun and easy way to incorporate the look into your wardrobe without really having to change or invest in a lot of new pieces.  You can throw it on over anything you already own:  jeans and a t-shirt for a casual look, a flowy dress for a feminine/tomboy look or with mixed prints (as seen above) to really show your fashionista prowess.

You can also skip the jacket and do the preppy, school sweater instead for cooler days.  Again, you can dress it up or dress it down, either way you will be on trend.

Even celebrities are getting in on this look!

Here’s a spiked Lady Gaga version found on retromaniafw.

Rhianna, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift are all fans. *celebstyle.com*

 

Even Kim K is getting in on the fun.

So what about you?  Are you ready to go back to school or are you too cool for school?

Also, I bought my fur vest over the weekend!!!  I will post pictures in an outfit post soon.
