This Week's Style Trends

Checking in with this week's trend watches! I've found some great pieces for ya'll to check out this week, and you'll definitely be clicking away to get the good deals!

#1 Pura Vida Bracelets

Remember taking Spanish? The culture part of the tests were the least favorite besides audio. Well, do you remember the phrase "Pura Vida" from Costa Rica? It was a common saying that literally means 'pure life', but Costa Ricans use it as a greeting. This brand has reached out to help those in Costa Rica by selling Pura Vida bracelets. I actually recall hearing of them before back when they only had a couple of bracelets out. Now their website is full of bracelets, necklaces, and even anklets! They also have t-shirts as well if I'm not mistaken, so definitely check them out! You'll even feel better buying them because it goes to a great cause, and it's cheap! Win- win situation (:

#2 Loafers and Oxfords

Loafers and oxfords are a fall must have this season. Among the different styles, cheetah print and solid brown/khaki with a bold, colorful, line at the bottom are the most popular. I particularly like the ones with the colorful bottom line, but I don't have any yet. I saw a pair in TJ Maxx the other day, but unfortunately they weren't my size! & I also have had my eyes on a pair at Francessca's that are very similar. Not only are they perfect for fall weather, but schools like mine with a closed-toe shoe policy approve of them!

#3 Color watch: Jewel Tones
Jewel tones are on the rage this season. They're classy, sophisticated, and have deep meaning. I recently studies color theory in a class, and many advertisers, artists, writers, and designers use it in their careers. If you ever get a chance, research it! For example, purple means royalty, blue means peace/calm, and yellow means bright, cheerful.

#5 Striped Jeans
You heard it- striped jeans is the latest denim trend via NY Fashion Week! Teen Vogue confirmed this as one of the top 13 trends of 2012. I will definitely be checking out my local boutique soon for them! If not, I'll have to order a pair online.
