Winter Options For That Fabulous Bodysuit

First off we must say we can not believe it is December 1st already! Where did this year go? Besides December,

We have been thinking a lot about bodysuits lately, I know weird right? This is just a how a fashionista’s brain works. However, the amazing one piece has gone to such great heights in the summertime, especially with some high-waisted shorts! However, what about the winter? And yes, we are talking about our California winter. So, maybe a few extra layers if you are on the east coast. We’ve found that bodysuits are the answer to our sartorial prayers. Not only do they stay in place when tucked into high-waisted pants and skirts, but they’re also thin enough that they don’t add any unnecessary bulk. Under pretty blouses, the extra layer will keep you oh so warm and extend the life of your favorite summery tops. We wanted to share with you, 13 ways to keep that bodysuit fresh on deck in your closet.

Give new life to your summery tops by layering a long sleeve-bodysuit underneath.

Fashion girls are all pairing their band tees with long sleeve-tops for winter.

Dress up your favorite jeans with a pretty lace bodysuit.

With a pencil skirt, this piece is super flattering.

A ribbed bodysuit is an ideal piece to tuck into high-waisted pants—it doesn’t budge.

Or this button-down option bodysuit, for some extra style points.

Give us all the mesh in the world, please! Loose-fitting trousers balance out a see-through bodysuit.

Swap out an average turtleneck for a turtleneck bodysuit, and never fuss with keeping it tucked in again.

Copy and paste this look for all your holiday party festivities.

An off-the-shoulder piece looks fun with jeans and heels.

Your next going-out outfit need a sheer piece.

Fashion girls are inspiring us to keep wearing our breezy summer tops all through the winter by layering them over a turtleneck bodysuit.

Turtlenecks again—under blouses and button-downs, they bring new life into our wardrobes (and add an extra layer of warmth).

Hope you enjoy these style options for that banging bodysuit!

Let us know some of your favorite pair up’s with that heavenly one piece in the comments below!

8 Spring Style Trends You Need In Your Wardrobe

We know you find fashion lady’s love your designers, wardrobe, and trends. We’re not exactly mind readers, but thanks to the designers’ Spring ’17 runways, we can paint a pretty clear picture of the coming months in fashion. These looks set the pace for a new season, and it’s going to look a little different from the style world as you know it. Prepare for bolder prints, more frills, and some serious wardrobe disruption. While minimalism has ruled, 2017 is poised to bring some big change to our closets. We did our homework and watched our fashion weeks very carefully to come up with the perfect eight spring trends that are not just perfect for spring, but for every season. If you can rock all eight trends for spring, you are going to be set with your wardrobe for the rest of the year, and let me tell you they are absolutely worth it to take a peak at and try out.

ISN’T IT ROMANTIC // 1

Ruffles, voluminous sleeves, and nods to the Victorian era made Spring’s most covetable dresses decidedly romantic, and a touch more dramatic than your average day dresses.

(1)Erdem Spring 2017, (2)Oscar de la Renta Spring 2017, (3)Fenty x Puma by Rihanna Spring 2017, (4)Alexander McQueen Spring 2017, (5)Preen Spring 2017, (6)Rodarte Spring 2017.

VACATION PRINTS // 2

Spring’s florals are bright, splashy, and on vacation. The saturated, tropical-feeling motifs find their way onto everything, giving you those getaway vibes, even when you’re trapped at home.

(1)Peter Pilotto Spring 2017, (2)House of Holland Spring 2017, (3)Rosie Assoulin Spring 2017, (4)Tibi Spring 2017, (5)Ports 1961 Spring 2017, (6)Altuzarra Spring 2017.

TRACK HAPPY // 3

Fashion’s obsession with athleisure is a staple for Spring, delivering a riff on your favorite sweatpants and track pants. Dress them up or wear them right to the gym; either way, you’ll be right on trend.

(1)Vetements Spring 2017, (2)Fenty x Puma by Rihanna Spring 2017, (3)Markus Lupfer Spring 2017, (4)Isabel Marant Spring 2017, (5)Paul Smith Spring 2017, (6)Versace Spring 2017.

OVEREXPOSED // 4

Come Spring, overexposure will be the new norm, thanks to bra tops and bandeaus putting midriffs on full display. Opt for a little modesty with a sheer top draped over top or a jacket left wide open to show off everything.

(1)Dior Spring 2017, (2)Prada Spring 2017, (3)Bottega Veneta Spring 2017, (4)Fendi Spring 2017, (5)Gucci Spring 2017, (6)Anya Hindmarch Spring 2017.

EARN YOUR STRIPES // 5

The classic print rules for Spring, but it’s got a contemporary update in knits, sheer fabrics, and even asymmetrical cuts. And if you prefer a more traditional look, you might just want to snag new suit separates with the must-have pattern.

(1)Chanel Spring 2017, (2)Monse Spring 2017, (3)Chloé Spring 2017, (4)Erdem Spring 2017, (5)Fendi Spring 2017, (6)Lanvin Spring 2017.

WARDROBE RENEGADE // 6

Rules are meant to be broken, so why wear a button-down tucked in and buttoned up or a bra top underneath your blouse? Designers are begging you to push the envelope with clothes that are meant to be layered unexpectedly and outfits that come deconstructed.

(1)Monse Spring 2017, (2)Carven Spring 2017, (3)Céline Spring 2017, (4)Marni Spring 2017, (5)Ports 1961 Spring 2017, (6)Giambattista Valli Spring 2017.

80’S GLAM // 7

Full sleeves, high shine, and body-conscious fit signal the return of ’80s glam on the runway, ready to pump up the volume in your closet.

(1)Gucci Spring 2017, (2)Tom Ford Spring 2017, (3)Balmain Spring 2017, (4)Elie Saab Spring 2017, (5)Isabel Marant Spring 2017, (6)Preen Spring 2017.

PUNCTUATED IN PINK // 8

Pretty and soft isn’t the way you’ll think of Spring’s pink palette. The color was a designer favorite, punctuating runways with its ironic sweetness or, sometimes, bold, saturated fuchsias.

(1)Givenchy Spring 2017, (2)Bottega Veneta Spring 2017, (3)Céline Spring 2017, (4)Prabal Gurung Spring 2017, (5)Chanel Spring 2017, (6)Delpozo Spring 2017.

Hope you enjoyed our Spring savy trends!

The Oscar’s After-Party Attire

We have been so busy! So many beautiful moments being captured lately from all spectrum’s of the universe. From the political moments of women that are beginning to take flight all over the United States, to Gigi and Bella Hadid’s up and coming photography professional, to Paris Fashion Week! We have been gathering some seriously great information for our Find Fashion Fans. Today, we wanted to start with the Oscar’s since we didn’t get to comment on our favorite after-party attire from the night.

The Oscar’s, a night of the stars who gathered at the 89th annual Academy Awards to celebrate the best in film. But when it comes time to go home with the gold, Hollywood heads to the biggest after-parties of the year. While the Oscars sees some of the most gorgeous gowns on the red carpet, the after-parties host a lineup of more playful looks—especially the Vanity Fair Oscar Party, where some of our favorite leading ladies stepped out in remarkable styles.

Diane Kruger wore a metallic Alexandre Vaulthier mini dress with a daring wrap construction. Rooney Mara was radiant in an airy ruffled and pleated chiffon number in a romantic blush tone that was none other than H&M. Emily Ratajkowski’s feather train stunned. Wearing everything from trumpet silhouettes to ball gowns, every actress below who walked the party’s green-and-white carpet was a head-turner. We obviously had to share these astonishing looks from our favorite’s in film!

Take a peak, and let us know what you think.

Some Serious Trends, Guys are secretly loving!

The best thing about fashion is being able to dress completely for yourself, putting on what makes you feel your absolute best. However, getting an outsider’s perspective never hurt either and that’s exactly what the fashionistas at Who Wore What did. Who Wore What completed a survey of a handful of men and women on their perspective of what looks great to them on the female body. We were pretty surprised at the responses… the current trends they liked on women included ones like “statement sweatshirts” and “pantsuits.” Shocking, we know!

Perhaps, we’d underestimated the opposite sex’s ability to appreciate the finer points of fashion. Duly impressed, Who Wore What compiled the best responses and we thought we would share these trends with you. We think that you should not only applaud young ladies and men on the streets for their trend savvy suggestions but also you should invest in these trends ASAP. So get ready to see the shocking opinions of what guys & your fellow femme’s secretly are loving on you!

“I mean who doesn’t love to see a sexy, mature women in a men’s button-down? Its just a perfect combination.” -Christian, polymer technician.

Of course fashion is about self representation and being able to dress for one’s self is the most important and influential part of the fashion industry, however we can not deny that hearing the perspectives of others helps determine some of our fashion statements. Maybe you weren’t too sure about wearing oversized sweaters or fitted sweatpants… but hearing that these trends are catching eyes might crack your shell to giving them a try. Either way its about what makes you comfortable, and what makes you feel good both inside and out. We hope you give these trends a go, and be careful not to break any necks on the way.

6 Female Designers You Have To Know About

We at Find Fashion are inspired my creativity, innovation, and design. We are absolutely filled with love and inspiration when we see designers revolutionize the fashion industry. Without constant re-engineering and re thinking what is already out there; the fashion world that we see today would not exist.Think about some of the most iconic names in fashion: Christian Dior, Louis Vuitton, Yves Saint Laurent. Each of these unprecedented brands delivers stunning pieces of couture that have redefined the fashion industry. They also share a common thread that may seem so obvious you’ve never given it a second thought: Each is named after its male founder. Although it might seem that an industry that creates products molded for women would be abundant in female leaders, the number of female heads at renowned brands has historically been lacking. However, the male-dominated fashion industry has rapidly changed in the 2000s. Thanks to the blue print layouts placed by trailblazers such as Coco Chanel, female heads are becoming more common, and with their ascendance, women are building brands of their own.

STELLA MCCARTNEY

Stella McCartney began her career in fashion as an intern for Christian Lacroix before rapidly landing the role of fashion director for Chloé, where she succeeded Karl Lagerfeld. In 2001, McCartney debuted her own eponymous named brand to critical acclaim. The Stella McCartney line is now admired for its colorful, lively designs that prove fashion is above all, a means to experiment and express yourself. The brand also separates itself by maintaining a cruelty-free policy that doesn’t utilize animal products in its designs.

RACHEL COMEY

screen-shot-2016-12-21-at-10-42-07-am

Rachel Comey’s career in fashion began not with womenswear, but with menswear in 2001. However, Comey had built a loyal following by 2004 and soon expanded her line to include womenswear and footwear. Since then, cult favorites like the Mars Bootie and Legion jeans have come to define the brand’s chic, laid-back style that is at once practical and daring. Manufactured and helmed in New York, Comey’s brand perfectly characterizes the glamour New York fashion is known for.

MARY-KATE AND ASHLEY OLSEN

screen-shot-2016-12-21-at-10-44-11-am

Twin sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen began their fashion career in 2006 with couture fashion label, The Row. After the brand’s success, the sisters established Elizabeth and James, a more moderately priced ready-to-wear line in 2007. In 2012, the sisters took home the coveted top prize at the CFDA Awards, cementing themselves as a force in fashion to be reckoned with.

MARIA GRAZIA CHIURI

screen-shot-2016-12-21-at-10-46-19-am

Italian fashion designer, Maria Grazia Chiuri currently has one of the most distinguished careers in the fashion industry, with a hand in some of the most legendary names in design. Chiuri, along with designer Pierpaolo Piccioli, headed Valentino from 1999 to 2016. In the fall of 2016, Chiuri took up the mantle as Dior’s fashion director, her first time alone as head of a brand. The historical appointment made Chiuri the first woman ever appointed as director in Dior’s history. Now that is some serious girl boss material.

JENNA LYONS

American designer Jenna Lyons has been working for J.Crew since she was 21 as an assistant designer for its menswear division. Since then, her career at the brand has skyrocketed at a tremendous pace. She was appointed vice president of women’s design in 2003, executive creative director in 2008, and, finally, president in 2010. Lyons is an inspiration not only to female designers, but to young people in every industry who strive to turn their wildest dreams into reality.

ALESSANDRA FACCHINETTI

screen-shot-2016-12-21-at-10-51-31-am

Alessandra Facchinetti has worked with some of the biggest names in fashion. She began at Prada, working mainly with Prada’s sister line, Miu Miu. She then worked with designer Tom Ford at Gucci for four years before being appointed creative director of Valentino in 2007. In 2013, Facchinetti became creative director for Tod’s, which she was the head of until May 2016. Having forged a blazing path in the world of fashion, Facchinetti’s keen eye for pushing trends is sure to lead her to continued success.

Women are continuing to change the role’s in designer fashion and we can’t wait to see what new designers arise in 2017 to create more commotion in the industry as a whole. Our note to inspiring designers is to just keep swimming, and let your creativity soar! Do not give up on your dreams, and let these women inspire you to keep pushing through the hard work.
