Designing for the Future: Fashion and Beauty Trends We Need to Consider Now


Hi there my lovelies! Hope you are doing well. Lately, I cannot stop thinking about what step backward the US has taken by Trump pulling the country out of the Paris Climate Accord. Sadly this year the US has joined countries like Nicaragua and Syria as the only nations not to be proud of.

Though as a trained Epidemiologist all I could think of is what kind of message are we sending to the rest of the world? However, it was nice to see 175 US cities and 13 states vowed to continue their commitment to the Paris Accord. I think this is a good start but since our own leaders don’t our best interest in heart we all must work together. Businesses also showed their disagreement with the decision. However, more needs to be done.

Since I am a big fashion and beauty enthusiastic, I think that fashion design and beauty is another area where the future trend can tap into. The fashion industry is $1.2 trillion global industry. When we think of climate change we rarely think of how cotton production is responsible for 2.6% of global water use. It is the second most polluting industry in the world after oil. Additionally, dyeing, printing, and bleaching are one of the most energy and chemical intensive stages along the manufacturing line.

Similarly reducing your beauty footprint doesn’t simply mean stop buying new makeup products. You can take some simple steps and buy organic and green products to reduce your carbon footprint. We as consumer should start by

  • Turn off the tap running while brushing teeth, shaving, and washing face.
  • Reduce hot water use (25% of the energy the average family uses each year is for just heating water).
  • Try products that are vegan and not tested on animals.
  • Skip the daily shampoo
  • Look for Recyclable Packaging

However, some of these environmentally friendly designs are beyond affordable for many people. Designs by designers such as Kowtow offers organic fashion ranging from $89 to $349.  Amour Vert, on the other hand, creates clothes for a long life cycle since it will be able to withstand one hundred washes and still feels soft. As a result, we’ll buy less often and will be less likely to give it away or throw it away. Their prices range from upper $30s for their tees to $200s for their dressing and shoes. Most of all, for every tee you buy a tree will be planted in North America with their partner American Forest. We need more businesses who can bring eco-friendly sustainable fashion and beauty to mainstream market at reasonable price.

Global warming is not some hoax invented by the Chinese. It’s real. The climate change is real. Each of us need to play a role in reducing carbon emission. As the second most polluting industry, the future of fashion industry should include bringing eco-friendly sustainable fashion and beauty to mainstream market at reasonable price. We owe this to our future and future generation.

Where do you see the future trend of design based on the climate change? Please comment below. I would really love to hear your feedback.

The Created Co. To Go Coffee Mug: It’s nice to wake up in the morning and sip coffee in an inspirational coffee mug.

Manna Kadar Liplocked Priming Gloss Stain: This is a primer, lip stain, and gloss in one, it eliminates the need for a hefty makeup bag but ensures that your lips stay lusciously vibrant all day long.  It applies easily and doesn’t show many flaws in the lips. However, it does feather. While it’s moisturizing, you’ll have to reapply it a time or two during the day. A lot of it transfers to mugs and cups when you drink.

Marrakesh Argan and Hemp Hair Oil: This product provides long-lasting frizz control, and is safe for color-treated hair. It provides deep-moisturizing shine and conditioning to your hair and also protects while you heat-style or straighten. I find that it makes my hair look smooth and shiny even when I am not able to blow dry and flat iron. I also use it in my hand to keep it soft. Hemp seed oil improves moisture and elasticity to the skin by lubricating beneath the surface. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that are perfect for those with sensitive skin, eczema or rosacea.

fabfit8.jpg

O.R.G Skincare Mineral Peel Face: I am big fan face feel because it gets rid of dead skins, exfoliates, and reveals glowing skin. Hence, just spray it on, massage it on, and get ready to glow.

Jook & Nona Tag Necklace: This is beautiful 18k gold plated stainless necklace that will a chic look to any outfit. I especially love the “Inspire” word in it.

fabfit6.jpg

Anderson Lilley Beach Butter Body Cream: This cruelty-free cream is free of parabens, pegs, artificial colors, petrolatum and mineral oil. Just apply to hands and body as often as needed to hydrate and nourish your skin.

Zoya Nail Polish: I always love Zoya nail polish because they are vegan and cruelty-free. I can use this polish without having to worry about harmful chemicals. Every bottle of Zoya nail polish is “5-free,” meaning it is free of DBP, camphor, toluene, formaldehyde, and formaldehyde resin, and I love the color.

Style of the Day with Faux Fur Vest


style3

Hi There! Happy  Hump Day to all my lovelies! Today I want to talk to you about the style of the day featuring faux fur vest. As you know,  faux fur is the current trend of the season and you will find it everywhere. However, I don’t know if told you this before, I am not much of a trend follower. Growing up, I always liked to stand out in the crowd. I fell in love in faux fur back in the early 2000s when faux fur wasn’t a big trend. I used to wear it as a teenager everywhere and liked standing out in the crowd. I love the chic look it creates and the warmth I get from it as well. Additionally, do doesn’t like the glamorous look created by faux fur style?

inc

The Faux Far Jacket:  I absolutely love this Jacket. I got it from Ann Taylor Loft back in 2006/2007 and fell in love. The quality of the faux fur is amazing. I am always pleased with my purchase from the Loft. There is nothing similar to this available at the Loft, but you can get this Collared Faux Fur Vest from Inc, which is available at Macy’s on sale for $73.99. Like the Loft version, this vest also has a zipper closure and looks beautiful.

sweater

The  Baby Soft Sweater: I loved pairing my vest with my favorite baby soft crewneck sweater from French Connection. I got mine from Gilt. You can get the same sweater in Roxy Kiss color from Asos. It’s currently on sale for $55. One thing that I love so much about this sweater is that it’s really soft.

NYDJ3.JPG

The faux leather pant: I love my faux leather coated slim pant from NYDJ. It’s very soft and huggable and worth every penny. Wear yours with your favorite pair. I also love my Eva Longoria Faux Leather Pants (on sale for $49 at the Limited). l love how breathable and stretchable it is. Most of all, it looks amazing. I am so glad that I did because this beautiful item is currently sold out. You can get a more affordable version at Forever 21 for only $24.50. I actually like the NYDJ version available at Bloomingdales on sale for $110.68.

The Boot: In winter, no style is complete without the perfect pair of boots. I got my boots ages ago from DSW. They go great with the dress. I just love my tan suede boots. The tan boot combines comfort and style together and completes the look of this stylish and chic outfit. What is your favorite outfit to wear during the winter?

Style of the Day with Sweater Jacket


style3

Hi There my Lovelies! Hope you are having a wonderful day. Happy Friday everyone. Today I want go over a very simple style of the day for work for those days when you have to those big meetings. It’s winter now and in fact we just had our first snow of the year today. Specially, during these time of the year I really hate wearing suit for those very important work meetings. Hence, I try to keep it simple and chic with sweater jackets.

loft

Draped Fringed Tweed Jacket (On Sale for $24.99)

Jacket: I got my sweater jacket last from New York and Company and absolutely love it. It is like with faux leather creating a more chic edgy look to the outfit. I got a lot of complements for this sweater. I have also went to interviews and big presentation in Chicago, the Windy city (in November) wearing this sweater. If you don’t like wearing suits all the time but want to the chic look, get your favorite sweater jacket and face your meeting or any presentation with chic confidence. I have added some of my favorite examples to help you get started.

Turtleneck: As you know I always love layering, specially during the winter. Whether you layer to achieve a certain look or to just stay warm, it never hurts to have fresh combinations on hand. When I layer, my goal is to achieve both. Depending on the weather , I like my sweater jacket with either a turtleneck or or my favorite mock neck short sleeve blouse.  Whether, it’s turtleneck or just mock neck, I love how it add sophistication to any style.

Pant: You always have to complete your look with the perfect pair of pants. I have gotten my pants from everywhere and Ann Taylor and Loft has by far the perfect pairs. I remember sister first introduced me to Loft pants a decade ago when she worked there a summer during my undergraduate years. I absolutely fell in love with how it fit me. Back then I was very skinny but a curve and both Loft and Ann Taylor knew how to fit my size. I absolutely love the Kate all-season stretch trouser from Ann Taylor, because of its curvy fit.

What are you waiting for? If you are me and get tired of the same of suit, try these sweater jackets a try and let me know what you think. What are some of your favorite style for dressing up for the all important meetings and presentations?

The Dress (Coeur de Vague Purple & Rust Geometric A-Line Dress): This dress has bright patches of color lending artistic charm with a mock neckline and button front, offset by a full, feminine skirt. I got this dress from Zulily. However, it’s completely sold out now. They are sold in European size and run small, hence had to order a size bigger. Who doesn’t like burst of color.  The dress looks more like faux suede and I absolutely love the chic look in creates.

 

The Boot: I got my boots ages ago from DSW. They go great with the dress. I just love my tan suede boots. The tan boot combines comfort and style together and completes the look of the A-line dress.

Overall, I loved my dress and the way the boot completed the look. No matter what the shifting trends of the moment may be, a good pair of boots never goes out of style. They work with everything from skinny jeans to trousers to the classic LBD. I loved pairing my tan boots with this patch-work A-line dress.
