Men’s Summer 2018 Style Guide

Summer is only 17 days away! Don’t panic, we’ve got you covered with the up and coming fashion trends to prepare you for this summer. Seasons come and go, but people fail to realize their clothes need to come and go too. It’s time to stock up on the hottest summer essentials and throw your jeans and cardigans to the back of your closet. We know it’s tough to let go of your favorite fall outfits, but someone needed to tell you!

5 MUST HAVES FOR YOUR EVERYDAY OUTFIT

Adidas Superstar Vulv in White, AreaTrend

You can’t go into this summer without a pair of reliable shoes for every outfit. These Adidas are a casual white shoe that elevates every casual outfit! Pair these with a plain tee and some shorts, and you’re ready to meet your buddies out for brews and burgers.

 

Loose Cotton T-shirt, H&M

Remember that plain tee I was talking about? Well here it is! We’re not talking about any plain white t-shirt from Walmart. Loose fitting tees are in this summer, maybe to hide the summer body you forgot to prepare for? But no matter, stock up on multiple colors of loose fitting cotton shirts to interchange with your outfits!

 

Straight Fit Denim Shorts, H&M

That’s right, jorts. Jorts might seem like a far stretch, but be the person that people are admiring for making them work this summer. This pair from H&M has the perfect amount of distress to look trendy, and not trashy. Throw out the over sized cargo’s, and get yourself a pair (or two) of jean shorts to rock this summer!

 

Skagen’s Jorn Silver Leather Watch, AreaTrend

Everyone should have a watch that they refer to as ‘ole reliable. Grab a styled watch like this you can throw on with any outfit! You’re never fully dressed without a.. smile? No, watch. And a watch like this is sure to go with almost every outfit and add a sense of style.

 

Persol Polarized Brown Round Sunglasses, AreaTrend

Summer is coming, whether you believe it or not. Nobody wants to be stuck outside in the bright sunlight without a pair of sunglasses! These are the kind of sunglasses you can keep in your car for any occasion. They look good and get the job done, and will go well paired with some of your new threads.

 

5 MUST HAVES FOR A NIGHT ON THE TOWN

Kenneth Cole Leather Loafer in Sand, AreaTrend

A pair of loafers that aren’t too constricting are perfect for this summer! These shoes can dress up any outfit while still feeling comfortable and casual. These versatile shoes can be used when dressing up, and when you want to add a little flair to your casual outfit.

 

Skinny Silver Gray Chinos, Banana Republic

Sure chinos are always in style, but we suggest pairing them with this summer’s fashion trends to complete the perfect look. Chinos are casual, but not as casual as jeans. Throw a pair of these on to look and feel good while heading out to meet some friends for drinks!

 

One-colored Short Sleeve Button-ups, Urban Outfitters

We’re into the neutrals this summer, but you can’t let your outfits get too boring! Plain colored shirts are perfect for this upcoming season, and last season. Spice it up with a little flair to your button-ups like this shirt from Urban Outfitters! The colored buttons add a trendy look to an otherwise basic shirt.

 

Fossil Stainless-Steel Quartz Fashion Watch, AreaTrend

While we all need an ‘ole reliable watch, we also need to show off sometimes. We believe strongly everyone needs to add a sense of “boujee” to their outfit once in a while. This Fossil watch works perfectly as the flashy and classy asset to “boujee” up your summer styles.

 

Ray Bans Gradient Black Aviator Sunglasses, AreaTrend

These Ray Bans are perfect for an evening out, giving you a more dark and mysterious look. These will give you the pseudo “tall, dark, and mysterious” persona, at least while you’re wearing them.

 

ADDITIONAL PIECES YOU MIGHT NEED THIS SUMMER

Birkenstock Arizona Oiled Leather Sandal, AreaTrend

Birkenstocks are a hit or miss. Not everyone can wear them the right way, but we encourage you all to try. Throw out your destroyed Nike slides and buy a pair of Birkenstocks whether they’re for trips to the beach, or to let your feet breathe with your casual outfits!

 

Ray-Ban Gatsby Tortoiseshell Round Sunglasses, AreaTrend


These here aren’t your everyday kind of sunglasses. We think everyone should have a pair of quirky sunglasses for when they’re feeling more fun than usual. You’ll definitely have people noticing you in these!

 

Herschel Little America Backpack, AreaTrend

Summer means traveling. Lots and lots of traveling if you’re lucky! Herschel supplies the perfect travel bags for a getaway weekend, and they do it with incredible style.

Fashion Trend: Minimalist Gold Watches

Watches are a simple yet elegant fashion statement, offering a functional and attractive accessory for both men and women. Even with the popularity of cellphones and their built-in time capabilities, watches continue to be popular – especially with today’s hot minimalist trends. The great news is that the world’s top designers continue to make gorgeous luxury watches for women, and lately we have been all over the simple, streamlined look.

This subtle look is all about quality. It recognizes the fact that well-made pieces speak for themselves. When you choose quality craftsmanship and simple detailing, you don’t need a lot of flash. Just one gorgeous piece can turn your look from ordinary into extraordinary. That’s where minimalist gold women’s watches can truly steal the show.

Gold watches never go out of fashion, and when you combine the beauty of gold with the utility of a minimalist watch, the result is the perfect timeless style upgrade. Check out some of our favorite minimalist gold watches for women from some of the world’s top designers below.

 

One of our new favorites is this Marc by Marc Jacobs Women’s Rose-Gold Stainless-Steel Quartz Fashion Watch. Marc Jacobs women’s watches are always popular due to their quality craftsmanship and unrivaled style. This particular style is especially lovely: It features a white face with the letters M, A, R, and C occupying the 12, 1, 2, and 3 spots on the dial. The gorgeous rose-gold hue looks beautiful when paired with any skin tone. The face is protected by heavy-duty mineral crystal, and the watch is water-resistant up to 50 meters. Though this is the perfect everyday watch, it also pairs perfectly with formal attire. This unique rose gold beauty will take you from day to night with ease.

Another incredible option is this Marc by Marc Jacobs Women’s Dinky MBM3434 Gold Tone Stainless Steel Quartz Fashion Watch.  As with any Marc by Marc Jacobs piece, you know that you are investing in quality and beauty which are sure to last a lifetime. Marc Jacobs has been a key driver behind the minimalist trend, giving us gorgeous pieces which are also incredibly understated. The “dinky” is an incredibly light, feminine design that pairs the form of dainty jewelry with the utility of a watch. With the iconic “MARC” serving as the numbers on this miniature face, this watch makes a lovely addition to any wardrobe. From jeans and a sweater to a feminine dress, this watch pairs with everything. If you’re considering adding some luxury to your life, this rose-gold watch from the incomparable Marc Jacobs is the perfect choice.

Finally, no fashion trend discussion would be complete without including the inimitable Michael Kors. Michael Kors accessories, and especially Michael Kors women’s watches, have been everywhere lately, from the runways of Paris to the wrists of the most fashionable of soccer moms. This incredible Michael Kors Women’s Runway Brown Leather Quartz Dress Watch is the latest in a long line of gorgeous fashion accents. This watch features a gold stainless steel case with a brown leather band. Speaking of the band, in this instance the band truly steals the spotlight. This extra-long criss-crossing band adds an extra loop to your wrist, turning a traditional timepiece into a work of art. The classic gold face is a perfectly sized 42mm, ensuring that this watch will be noticed without overpowering your look. Pair it with jeans and a top for a weekend in the country, or with a power suit for your next business meeting. This watch is an absolute must-have addition to any fashionista’s wardrobe.

If you are considering adding a watch to your wardrobe, AreaTrend has the options you’re looking for – from luxury designs like those above to sport watches, diving watches, and standard dress watches. And from luxury designers including Gucci and Burberry to standards such as Bulova and Invicta, you are sure to find something you’ll love. We have the best prices around, and great watches for women are on sale year-round. We are proud to carry the women’s designer watches you need to keep you looking your best. We also carry shoes, sunglasses and other accessories to keep you looking great whether you’re heading to the office or enjoying a night on the town!

PANTONE Fashion Color Report for Fall 2016

With the fall season is underway, many of us may have noticed the popular colors that are trending in the fashion industry. PANTONE, the most well-known fashion color reporter, has an interesting color palette for Fall 2016. Many of these colors have already hit the floors at numerous retailers.

The idea for fall 2016 colors were to represent the unity of strength, confidence and optimism – which is led by the blue family.  The colors consist of Riverside, Airy Blue, Sharkskin, Aurora Red, Warm Taupe, Dusty Cedar, Lush Meadow, Spicy Mustard, Potter’s Clay, and Bodacious.

PANTONE Riverside

Riverside is a new blue shade that displays a subtle vibrancy and sophistication. This color is cool and calming, as well as strong and stable. Riverside borders on exciting, yet manages to maintain a sense of consistance.

PANTONE Airy Blue

The Airy Blue color sparks a feeling of lightness and freedom.  Airy blue indicates serenity where designers are seeking to show weightlessness in a world of conflict.

PANTONE Sharkskin

Sharkskin is a grey toned color with some edge but still neutral. This color is pairable with almost any fall brights or mutes. Sharkskin is a color that the rest of the palette can depend on.

Aurora Red adds a punch of color to the color palette. This color is a bold red that is warm, sensual, and very pleasing to the eye. This color produces dynamic confidence and excitement.

Makeup Trends for Fall 2016

So according to astrological seasons, fall is officially here! ? Although…it’s been fall since September 1st for me. ha

And of course, a new season means switching up your look! Time to welcome the ever-popular smokey eyes and vampy lips. Some of you may have seen reports on new makeup trends for Fall 2016, but if not, I’m here to fill you in – makeup trends for this season: straight from the runways!

 

1) Dark, Vampy Lips

Okay, sure. We’ve seen oxblood and berry shades countless times before. But this year, the colors go even darker – plums and reds that border on black. In fact, black is in. And actually, so is dark blue! (Who saw that coming?!) To pull off these gothy pouts, be sure to keep your blush light and your brows dark to add balance to the face.

Check out Lily Collins who consistently pulls this trend off like a pro.

2) Heavily Lined Eyes

This fall it looks like everyone is embracing a little bit of that inner goth, as another popular trend right now is heavy, smudged eyeliner. And I mean all around the eyes – that’s right, just like you did during your middle school emo phase. ? Only now, you should be able to do it with a bit more polish. To keep the focus on your gaze, keep your cheeks and lips a soft nude or pink.

Check out Kendall Jenner modeling for Elie Saab with intense MAC eye makeup (on left).

If that’s a bit too rocker-glam for you, try a softer, smudgy look like Hailee Steinfeld (on right).

3) Glitter!

Yep, that’s right. Glitter has broken away from the holidays and leaked into autumn. There are so many ways to rock this trend, from drenching the lids in glittering shadow to adding a touch of shimmer to the inner corners. If you feel like you need more precision, opt for a glitter liner to add that pop of shine just above your lashes.

On the left we see the glittery cheekbones that caught everyone’s attention at the Burberry Autumn-Winter show.

However, as cool as it looks, it may be a bit out of many people’s comfort zones. On the right is Keiko Lynn sporting a glittery pink look. (Check out her tutorial on how to apply glitter eye makeup! It’s fabulous!) To make it even more fall/winter appropriate, opt for gold or some cooler tones, like lilac and blue.

4) Spider Lashes

Super defined, borderline chunky eyelashes are the norm this fall. And this time, the focus is on the top and bottom lashes – a la Twiggy . Apply multiple layers of mascara to achieve this doll-like look that will make your eyes really pop!

See Kristen Stewart rocking the look below:

5) The “Non-tour” 

I think we’ve all become pretty used to the wide array of “Contouring 101” tutorials out there on the Internet. But after all the seasons of chiseling those cheekbones and jawlines, it is finally time to take a step back to the simpler way of things. The goal for this season should be a complexion that falls somewhere between dewy and matte, with effortlessly flushed cheeks and subtle highlights (no “glowing to the gods” strobing this time). Great news for those who shrink away from the daunting puzzle that is contouring!

Lupita Nyong’o (on left) always looks radiant with her fresh-faced makeup! Note the way the light bounces naturally off the high points of her face.

Blake Lively also sported a natural look at the Michael Kors NYFW show back in February. It just goes to show that you don’t need to “re-shape” your face in order to look stunning!

6) Natural Brows

Full brows continue to be on trend, but this time it’s all about embracing what mother nature gave you. No overdrawing the arches or creating a totally new shape. They should still be groomed, yes, but the look should remain soft and feathery. Below you see Cara Delevingne, who arguably has some of the best brows in the universe as we know it. ?  If your brows are naturally thick and full like hers, then all that’s really needed is to brush them  up with a bit of gel for hold. However, if you don’t have super-thick brows, no worries! You can still fill them in with a light brow powder – just keep them looking soft and don’t overdraw your natural shape.

7) Metallics & Brights

This fall seems to be all about going bold or going natural with very little in between. Metallic hues for both the lips and lids make a strong statement for autumn 2016 – with bronze being the shade that really steals the show. And to top everything off, brights, particularly graphic bright eyeliner, continue into the realm of more daring trends. Basically, it’s time to break the rules that say color is for spring and summer and experiment with the craziest looks you can think of!

Okay, so there are obviously more trends I could talk about. But I think these seven give a pretty well-rounded look at the fall 2016 makeup scene. I’m always playing with makeup, and I’m definitely looking forward to trying out some of these trends (those Nyx Cosmic Metals pictured above……I need to get my hands on some of those). Hopefully you have gained some awesome inspiration as well! ❤
