This funky geometric has been around since the first World War. First appearing in England before it made it’s appearance around the world.
The argylepattern is based on geometric shapes and lines. It’s intended to give the pattern a 3 dimensional feel to it, and also make the design look like it’s moving.
With it’s unique look, Argyle has showed us the reason it has lasted so long today. It’s a fun pattern to wear out, and can suit any uptown event nicely.
Sweaters and argyle certainly go hand in hand. Which is why the most commonly seen article is an argyle sweater.
You can certainly find other argyle items like socks, coats, and maybe even pants. But sweater and shirts are definitely the easiest to find, and wear.
This long-lasting design will still work wonders today, and give a bit of a classic look to any outfit you wear this season.

Ombre: Not Just For Your Hair
Ombre: the graduated variation in the saturation of monochromatic color. You could say it’s the tie dye of the new millennium. While this term may bring to mind the new trendy hairstyle, ombre has made recent appearance in art, accessories, home design, food, and of course, fashion. More subtle than color blocking and less boring than a single colored garment, ombre is the perfect option for anyone looking to experiment with color in their wardrobe.
A colored ombre garment is a statement piece; so let it speak for itself in the outfit. Any ombre garment simply needs to be paired with black jeans and neutral shoes. Try a flowy ombre dress or skirt for a night uptown with a black tank and a black leather jacket. Buy an ombre piece now, because it will easily transition to spring when the weather warms up.

A Pale Attraction
It’s true. For those of you readers who may always worry about having too fair of a skin tone, fret no more.
You can always resort to a self tanning lotion like the most popular one used, Jergens. However, why go through all of the trouble to make yourself look like someone you’re not when there is an even better alternative? Add to your wardrobe and embrace your natural tone with soft pinks and milky whites to highlight your feminine glow.
In the accessory world, go beyond the pale, and add volume with soft color pallets. Look for various types of accessories to add to an outfit from the array that Forever21 has to offer. Don’t be afraid to add in an accented color such as gold or tope for an extra pop to a particular piece. Adding pink allows you to be playful with your choices.
Incorporate the pale trend with your clothing as well. NastyGal is a great place to check for a pinky flirty bottom or a sassy winter white top.
Just because you may have fairer skin than most, doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t utilize this trend. Make the end of the winter season worth your while and prove that fare tones are not a minority. Here’s to the return of natural beauty.
