Hello fashionistas!! This chilly, winter weather has me wishing for those warm summer evenings and beautiful sunsets. Good thing JE has just what we need for spring and summer 2011!

As I’ve written before, the bohemian style is one my favorite styles out there…and it brings me great joy to report that the “Boho” fashion is back in for spring/summer 2011! Designers all across the board are bringing out theBoho in their lines with 60s and 70s inspired colors and patterns.

TIP: For Boho inspired looks, turn to celebs like Sienna Miller, Nicole Richie, Mischa Barton and Kate Moss for some cool styles!

Here's Sienna Miller in a cropped Boho blouse with a great pattern! And check out that awesome belt! Boho styles look great with distressed jeans and gladiator sandals!

The best thing about Boho style is how easy it is to look naturally and simply beautiful in the clothes. It brings a much laid back look to fashion and Boho is NOT afraid of color. So be sure to mix and match those wild and crazy colors for spring and summer!

The great thing about Boho style is the ability to pair your more expensive staples in your wardrobe with cheaper blouses and accessories to create a great look. Such as a great leather jacket with a simple, colorful tunic and tons of jewelry.

This tunic soon to be sold at Joey Eric displays a great pattern and detail perfect for the Boho style! Could be worn with leggings or even great skinny jeans!

This Boho chic tunic shown above is a perfect start to your Spring Boho wardrobe! So be sure to check it out once JE gets them in! They are TOO cute!¬†And don’t forget to hop on that Boho train before it quickly leaves the Fashion Station!

Until next time…LOVES

Trend Alert!: Black is the new….Black? November 15, 2010

Hello lovelies!

So, last week I had the opportunity to leave the boring town of Muncie, In. and venture to a place where fashion is at the forefront and the wind blows in every which direction….that’s right, the windy city itself, Chicago, Il.! Even though I’m studying to be a journalist, my minor just happens to be fashion, which allowed me to participate in the fashion department’s annual trip to Chicago to attend seminars on all things fashion at the Art Institute of Illinois, all courtesy of the Fashion Group International.

Included were seminars on the design and fashion merchandising business, even a class on fashion reporting and how important fashion magazines are. The events of the day were all followed up by a student fashion show! Now, the seminars weren’t the only interesting thing to come up during the two-day conference; the abundance of unique fashions of the girls (and guys) there was just as inspiring, and may I add jaw-dropping!

Aside from the plethora of girls fighting to walk in their “too small” and “too high” heels, a fashion trend that was recurring throughout the conference was black, black, and more black! I know black is sophisticated and chic, but apparently it’s fall’s new color!

Many of the outfits included things like black patterned tights, black heels or boots, black high-waisted skirt mixed with a colored top and then topped off with a black leather Bomber jacket or blazer. I couldn’t help but be inspired by the different styles that could come from one simple color.

Check out these celebrities adding sophistication and edgyness with their high-waisted skirts. The Olson twins are the queens of black in the fashion world!

Between the pairings of chunky jewelry and fabulous handbags, most of these girls looked runway ready with a little edge to them. I can honestly say I have been wearing more black now and like the simplicity of it all. Because it’s so easy to pair that crazy colorful necklace you have sitting at the bottom of your jewelry container, or even wear that handbag that will go with nothing else.

With black, possibilities are endless! It’s slimming, looks chic, and you can add the craziest colors for a little something fun….and apparantly is the new trend for fall! So don’t miss out and open up your closest and go experiment with different edgy styles!!

Until next time…LOVES
