Are Blanks Back? Is Fashion Moving Back to Basics?

Courtesy of E! Online

Throughout the past few years we have seen lots of prints.  Stripes, animal prints, text on tees and more.  Recently while flipping through E! Online’s photo gallery, I was struck by how many celebrities were out and about in “blanks” or plain t-shirts.  Men, women and children were all wearing basic tees and tanks.

There were a lot of people in white. Granted it’s a hot summer and white is a great color for keeping cool.  However, I saw pinks, purples and blues, too!  Click here to check out the full photo gallery.  If you want to dress like these celebs, we have some similar styles like Lindsay Lohan’s turquoise tank, Keira Knightley’s pink sleeveless tee and Jennifer Lopez’s black basic tee with some blinged out shoulders (which you could easily add on your own!).

What do you think?  Are Blanks Back?  Is Fashion Moving Back to Basics?  Comment below or post on our Facebook page and tell us what you think!

And if  blank tees are your must-have for the summer, head on over to Rock Bottom T-Shirts where we have over 150 styles to meet your needs.

How to Give Your Royal Blues a Fashion Edge

According to Polyvore, a fashion community website (think Pinterest with an editorial staff and completely focused on fashion), Royal Blue is a trending color.  The reason for this trend, according to the editorial staff at Polyvore, is

“Royal blue is instantly sophisticated and almost universally flattering. Whether you wear it head-to-toe, or add a pop of color with a royal blue shoe or handbag, you’re bound to be on-trend!” See more at Polyvore.com.

While I love Royal, sometimes I feel like I’m going to a baseball game or college basketball game when I wear it.  The color screams “sports” to me.  However, there are variations on Royal that allow you to get the fashion benefits while giving it a more girlish flair or brightening it up!   Read on to see Royal alternatives to give you a fashion edge.

How to Choose Great Colors to go with Grey Pants

Grey Pants

I love grey pants!  Every time I go clothes shopping, I try on at least three pairs.  They are slimming, fun and cooler to wear in the summer than black pants.  However, as much as I love grey pants, after looking longingly in the mirror, I always leave them at the store.

Why?  Because I have four pairs at home gaining dust because I never know what to wear with them.  I know that a white blouse will go nicely with my darker pairs, but that’s a work lunchtime disaster waiting to happen.  Black will go great with my lighter pairs, but in the summer time heat, wearing a black top can be tough.

But now my grey pants will stay on the hanger no longer because I have found some great color coordination ideas from Women’s Fashion @ Suite 101, Yahoo Answers and the Made Man blog.  So keep reading on how to color coordinate your wardrobe with this awesome fashion basic! Continue reading

Summer Fashion Trends Alert – What to Wear this Summer

Summer Fashion Trend Alert

Summer Fashion Trend Alert

On June 20,2012 spring will be over and summer will officially be here.  We can expect this time of year to have plenty of sunshine as well as our fair share of new fashions.

However, as much fun as summer wear brings, it’s still important that your summer wardrobe reflects the current summer fashion trends.  Fortunately, summer fashion experiences more of a gradual change, with last year’s styles slowing fading in popularity instead of winking out of existence.

Likewise, it’s also good to know that some trends just never go out of style.  Here’s a look at what to wear from now until fall.

Summertime means sunshine, fun and… of course – new fashion.  Few seasons excite fashion lovers as much as summer, due in large part to its combination of style, comfort and fun.  And while it’s easy to only focus on summer clothing fashion, don’t overlook the importance of great summer fashion accessories.

Even the best summer dress can be made better by the right accessories.  But since not all accessories are created equally, knowing which work the best with summer fashion is critical. Continue reading
