Berets are back – will you adopt autumn 2017’s hottest accessory trend?

2017 has seen a resurgence of trends, we thought would never come back into style. The bum bag, choker necklaces and even corset tops were high on the agenda this summer.

Now another unexpected accessory has jumped on the ‘remember me from the 90s’ bandwagon – the beret.

Believe it or not, the Parisian-inspired hat has won over the stylish wardrobes of a number of celebs already.

Pop star Rhianna and model Winnie Harlow were both spotted earlier on in the year wearing leather style berets at the Dior A/W17 show in Paris – Ooh la la.

Kendall Jenner also rocked the head-wear, while out and about in New York, pairing autumn’s must have hat with a striped shirt dress and funky Burberry boots.

Bella Hadid , on the other hand, gave hers the true French treatment while posing in Paris. Teaming hers with an oversized dogtooth blazer and ladylike sling back heels, she certainly turned heads.

But if you thought the humble hat was only for casual occasions, then think again. British Actress Clare Paget proved the beret is evening worthy too, wearing her ‘respect’ logo design on the red carpet – très chic.

What is lampshading? The leggy fashion trend, explained

Have you been scrolling through celebrity street style photos lately and thought, ‘Hey, that shirt and boots combo looks strikingly like a lamp!’

No? Well, let us elaborate…

Lampshading is the pairing of boots with a large or oversized shirt or sweatshirt — and it has been blowing up our Insta-feeds recently. Although the term is less-than-attractive, the idea behind it makes sense — the oversized top is meant to make the silhouette of a lampshade in comparison to the wearer’s legs.

The Skimm was one of the first to report on the trend at the end of 2015, originating from the college-chic style of wearing oversized T-shirts over Nike shorts. PopSugarfollowed in 2016 with a gallery predominately of the Kardashian-Jenner clan in it’s evolved form of over-the-knee boots and shirt dresses. Since then, the trend has surged thanks in part to the popularity of thigh and hip-high boots.

Here’s a closer look:

Kylie Jenner, one of the O.G. lampshaders, wore the look to the PrettyLittleThing Campaign Launch on April 11, 2017.

The color-blocked look featured an oversized white shirt with embellished shoulders and purple spandex thigh-high Balenciaga boots.

Ariana Grande went even more casual, pairing her sparkly over-the-knee boots with an extra large sweatshirt by The Sweetest Language in a thank you post for her birthday on June 26, 2017.

Rihanna, queen of trends, has also sported the look while out on the town.

She paired an oversized graphic tee with black lace-up, thigh-high boots by Unravel in an Instagram she posted on May 4, 2017.

Beyoncé proved the look can work great for maternity fashion.

She paired a loose, flowing tan dress with matching beige boots to attend Kelly Rowland’s Whoa, Baby! book launch, posting a series of pics to Instagram on April 22, 2017.

Zendaya has also given the trend a try.

She topped her black leather boots with a collared shirt dress overlaid with a distressed sweater while attending We Day Toronto on October 19, 2016, posting the pic a day later.

Bella Hadid also rocked the look.

She posted an Instagram of her in a large flannel with white heeled boots on September 16, 2017 before hopping on a helicopter, or a “choppa” as she captioned her photo, while traveling for London and Milan fashion week

Lampshading has also been lighting up the runway.

Vetements was part of the trend early on, adding high boots to their typical oversized designs in their fall/winter 2016 collection.

Fendi filled the runway on Feb. 23, 2017 during Milan Fashion Week with models, like Hadid, in high crimson boots.

The ensemble also included a shirtdress and coat, hitting lampshading criteria.

Even more recently, Hailey Baldwin walked for Tommy Hilfiger on Sept. 19, 2017 during London Fashion Week, presenting a large flannel-styled, collar shirt.

Victoria Beckham took the sheer shirt trend and (literally) made it her own

Victoria Beckham knows a thing or two about adding some spice to her wardrobe, and it seems she’s found just the du jour item to do so: a sheer shirt. And whew, do we love Beckham’s sophisticated take on this otherwise sexy trend.

For her latest look out in London, Victoria slipped on a sheer baby-blue collared button-down blouse from her own eponymous line. The poplin-trimmed mesh shirt looks more like a pastel work of art than a mere top, which would explain its hefty $706 price tag. A tiered navy chiffon skirt provided a pop of personality for the look, adding swanky movement and a salsa-like flair. If it looks at all familiar to you, then you probably recognize it from the runway of VB’s latest Spring 2018 show at New York Fashion Week.

An oxblood square cross-body satchel bag and slouched boots in the same shade added a poised contrast to the blue-on-blue look. And in true Posh fashion, Victoria finished the look with a pair of oversized shades and her classic smileless smirk.

If you keep tabs on celebrity trends with laser focus (us!), then you’re well aware of the huge splash sheer ensembles have made both on the red carpet and on the street. And while “sheer” can quickly translate into “naked,” VB managed to put a truly ladylike twist on the sultry fabric. After all, this is the Victoria Beckham, singer-turned-high-end-fashion-designer extraordinaire. If she can’t tackle a daunting style challenge, then no one can.

Fashionistas will also note that Mrs. Beckham is wearing head-to-toe Victoria Beckham, all from her latest collection. Which is, of course, a genius move, as VB never fails to be her own best advertisement. Keep the stellar looks coming, lady!

Plastic surgery trend has people requesting to look like Ivanka Trump

Ivanka Trump is inspiring people to go under the knife.

The INSIDER Summary:

  • A New York plastic surgeon revealed that the newest plastic surgery trend is “the Ivanka look.”
  • The surgeon reports that people are requesting surgeries like cheek implants to look more like Ivanka Trump.
  • The look can cost anywhere from $30,000 to $50,000, according to the surgeon.
  • The next most requested look is inspired by Kylie Jenner.

Americans spent $8 million on plastic surgery in 2016 and had more surgeries in 2016 than any other country. Now, the President’s eldest daughter Ivanka Trump is inspiring plastic surgery trends.

New York plastic surgeon Dr. Norman Rowe revealed to The New York Post’s Page Six that since the 2016 primaries, women have been requesting “the Ivanka look” which he describes as, “widened cheekbones, a slender nose, and large eyes.”

It costs anywhere between $30,000 and $50,000 to get the look, according to Dr. Rowe. Depending on your price range, the procedures can include Botox, cheek implants, and rhinoplasty, the medical term for a nose job.

Dr. Rowe said that he now works with about four patients a month who are inspired by the 35-year-old first daughter. The only “rival” celebrity impacting people’s plastic surgery decisions would be Kylie Jenner, Dr. Rowe revealed, saying she is one of the “most sought-after celebrity faces.”

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard about people wanting to get surgery to look like Ivanka. In an episode of E!’s “Botched,” one woman claimed that she had 13 plastic surgeries to look like Ivanka Trump. she said that she had the surgeries over the course of only one year.

Ivanka Trump’s physical features are something people may want to copy, but her fashion sense and clothing are not: Her eponymous fashion line was dropped by Nordstrom this year and people petitioned Macy’s to do the same.

Although celebrities may inspire cosmetic trends, some indulge in surgeries of their own. Actress Courteney Cox, has spoken out about regretting her surgery and “Real Housewives of Orange County” star Tamra Judge has shared her entire procedural experience with the public.

Any surgery should be taken seriously, especially when it comes to your health.

How to get fall’s pale colored hair trend

On the title track of her newest album, “Rainbow,” Kesha belts, “Got kaleidoscopes in my hairdo.” The singer, who has been dyed nearly shade under the sun, recently traded her vibrant, saturated color for a more washed-out look that stylishly fades out, offering a new look with each shampoo.

Hair with streaks of pale pink, washed out blue and soft violet and green first bubbled up at music festivals as a mellow alternative to psychedelic hues, and it is now a statement on red carpets that goes beyond the pale — but, just barely.

With major brands like L’Oreal joining the party, it is easy to try the trend at home. The French beauty company is behind the new semi-permanent Colorista line, which comes in 11 shades, ranging from purple to aqua to tangerine. The colors are formulated to last 4-10 washes, making it possible to play around with different hues. L’Oreal says it is the perfect product for “the person who is nimble to trends and craves change and statement flair.”

Celebrity hair and makeup artist Vittorio Masecchia, who is responsible for some of the most iconic rainbow hairstyles, is excited to see this look take hold. “It’s a really fun trend!” the Los Angeles-based stylist says. “There are so many creative choices and a million different ways to mix colors.”

For those who decide to go the salon route, Masecchia encourages an initial consultation. “Ask to see if they have photos of their ‘pastel’ or ‘rainbow’ work,” he says. “Bring image inspiration so that you can communicate your ideas clearly.”

Chicago stylist Anthony Christiano also encourages clients to think about which colors look best with their eye and skin tones. “It’s a great way to express yourself, but you want to make sure the hair complements the face,” he says. Consider the cosmetics you regularly use and the color families in your wardrobe as well.

Darker hair will likely require bleach before bringing in the desired color. “These shades show up best on pre-lightened hair so bleach, from a pro, will help,” he says. “As for texture, anyone from straight hair to tight curls can try this trend out.”

Christiano says that this process will make the hair porous, which means that it will require frequent salon trips to keep the look going. He also recommends shampoos with a Ph at seven or below, as anything higher will open and close the hair cuticle too much and cause dryness. “You also want to avoid sulfates and silicones, which result in a harsher detergent.”

To further keep the color in good condition out side of the salon, Masecchia recommends a regular conditioning mask and minimal heat-styling. “Wash less, heat less, touch up more,” he instructs. “It’s going to be a little bit of work but you’ll feel like a magical unicorn so it’ll probably be worth it.”

But, Masecchia and L’Oreal embrace the fading process. “Personally, I love the look of faded colors,” says Masecchia, “but if pastels fade too quickly for you then it’s worth it to have some products to touch up with.”

While both he and Christiano recommend a trip tp the salon, Masecchia believes in some DIY homework. “You can always do little touch ups at home! For instance, if you have a pastel pink, it could be easy to tint it back in.”

Ultimately, it’s all about finding the line between polished and punk. “We talk the individual needs of the client and go from there,” says Christiano. “It needs to be tasteful, fun, and whimsical.”

And, if the salons and cosmetic companies are any indication, we won’t be over the faded rainbow look any time soon.

Flower Crowns Are The Newest Celebrity Beauty Trend

There are several previously-thought-to-be-naff fashion and beauty trends out there right now that we would happily align ourselves with. From the unexpected resurgence of the fanny pack, to wearing your sunglasses indoors and at night like a ’90s boyband god, we’re very into this ‘I don’t care about anything, except maybe I do’ vibe we’re getting.

Enter: the new-age flower crown.

A worthy departure from the bridal variety, or the Coachella-girl with a kaftan on variety, this newfangled flower is, more or less, the wood nymph incarnation we always hoped it would be.

And with star backers like Jennifer Lawrence and Kirsten Dunst (in beyond-heaven Rodarte, draped with a boa of baby’s breath like a goddamn queen), we’re hoping that we’re one day closer to it being socially acceptable to turn up to work adorned in floral wreaths like we stepped out of a woodland wedding Pinterest mood board.

Kim Kardashian Spring Blazer Suit Celebrity Trend

But lately, the suit has been getting more air time than normal. We’re not mad about it, though. That’s why we’ve compiled the hottest suits of late, just in case you’d like to take power dressing into summer, too. Whether it’s a full-blown pantsuit à la supermodel Aymeline Valade, or an oversized blazer that doubles as a dress like Rihanna’s Fashion Week look, power dressing is shaping up to be the trend we just can’t quit. But really, when it looks that cool, who would want to?

Squiggle eyebrows are a thing and it’s possibly the strangest beauty trend of 2017

It’s been a bit of an odd year in the beauty world. We’ve seen boob-emblazoned nails, unicorn make-up and holographic hair, but there’s a new eyebrow trend that’s hitting it big on social media at the moment, and it’s arguably the strangest of the lot.

Squiggle brows. What is it, you ask? For some reason, unbeknown to us, bloggers and amateur make-up artists have been painting their brows into waves above their eyes, and the finished look is, err, unique.

Though it might look a little silly, it takes quite a while and some form of skill to perfect this trend. First, you have to create the wavy shape using washable glue (because you don’t really want to permanently pluck them into squiggles!), colour them in, then intricately paint on concealer to give the squiggles defined edges. And, the look wouldn’t be complete without matching lips.

We’re not really sure if the look is wearable outside of Instagram, but one thing we’re certain of is that this won’t be last strange beauty craze of the year.

What do you think – a brave new beauty trend or just a cry for internet fame? We’ll let you decide.

Fake Instagram Makeup Beauty Trend Psychology

And why would it? After all, the crux of social media is that it’s reciprocal. You have the same tools – or so you think – as that A-lister or influencer who looks #flawless in their most recent selfie. So you take a photo, you crop it, you edit it (as 44% of us do, according to Ofcom) and you upload it. But it’s not the same – after all, you don’t have a glam squad, or a pro retoucher, or a surgeon’s bill that runs into triple digits. But that doesn’t stop it being aspirational. For every big name posting rough and ready photos and bragging about their DGAF attitude, there are three other women claiming their suddenly plumped pout or fuller bust is the work of makeup or hormones. As my friend Giselle, 27, put it: “I just assume now that most of what I see on there isn’t real, especially those body types that you just know aren’t the products of so-called gym gains, puberty or genetics.” Of course, retouching has existed for a long time, but the difference now is social media is interactive and gives you the agency and tools to fully customise your appearance – and with liking and sharing, we have the power to express approval or disapproval of someone’s looks. As academic Richard M. Perloff noted in a recent paper, on social media, users are the sources as well as the receivers; it’s not a one-way street.
