Celebrity Stylist Shares How to Wash Swimsuits the Right Way

How can one make sure their bathing suits look beautiful all summer long? Unfortunately, essential summer items like sunscreen, deodorant, and tanning oils are the arch nemesis of bathing suits because it can cause colors to fade and increase the likelihood of normal wear and tear.

Celebrity stylist and fashion consultant in NYC, Amanda Sanders, recommends putting the bathing suit in a mesh bag and using a bleach-free detergent when you throw it in the wash.

Update Your Spring 2021 Wardrobe with These Essentials

It’s not that much longer now – spring is upon us and with that comes a rise in temperatures and the inevitable change of the wardrobe. Those heavy layers are no longer needed, and you may be looking for ways to integrate some lovely spring colours into your look. So, before you hit the shops and pick up some new items, here’s a look at what will be hot and trending in terms of a spring 2021 wardrobe.

Embrace Spring Dresses

One of the hottest trends for spring 2021 is spring dresses in all styles, colours, prints, and lengths. What this means is that you have a lot of freedom to choose the ones that speak to you. Dresses with full skirts are particularly hot for spring so you can keep your eyes open for that style.

If it’s still a bit chilly to break out your new spring dress, try layering a cardigan or blazer on top and wear a pair of tall boots rather than more traditional warm weather shoes like sandals.

Time to Get Rid of the Skinny Jeans

If you’ve been sporting skinny jeans for the past few years, it’s time to embrace the latest denim trend which is loose denim. Look for wide legged denim that has more of a vintage and lived-in quality to it.

Beach Wear Vibes – Bring Elements of the Look into Your Wardrobe

Picture yourself sunbathing on the beach, relaxing, and enjoying the summer heat. Now it’s time to take those vibes and that beachwear style and integrate it into your spring wardrobe. This can be done with nautical prints, beach-type images and patterns, soft natural colours you’d find on the beach, and of course, casual style clothing.

Pink Is the Colour of Spring

Traditionally, there are colours that emerge for each season that prove to be trendy and, right now, pink is shaping up to be that colour for spring 2021. All shades of pink will be trending, including bright fuchsia pink that can really add a bright and youthful pop to your complexion.

It’s All About the Proper Fit

As you shop for your new spring wardrobe, the key to looking great is finding the right fit. The right fit ensures that you look put together, the garment hangs and fits as it should, and that you feel confident and comfortable. Designers are now catering to a much broader range of body sizes and shapes, which means finding your proper size has never been easier. If you’re looking for a selection of plus sized items, check out froxx.

If you prefer shopping online rather than in-person, make sure you take your body measurements to use with the website’s sizing guide. The majority of online retailers will have a sizing guide posted.

All of these wardrobe essentials will make it possible for you to step into spring with style and confidence. And what’s great is that so many of these pieces can be mixed and matched with your existing wardrobe.

Aim High With Style Expert Sydney Sadick: 5 Different Ways To Wear Black Leggings This Fall

As a national TV correspondent (TODAY, E!, Inside Edition), fashion editor and style expert, NYC it girl Sydney Sadick has perfected the art of dressing for the part you want in life. In her new book Aim High: How to Style Your Life and Achieve Your Goals, Sydney shares her ethos on how to live fearlessly, achieve your dreams, and use fashion as a tool to ignite goal-getting confidence.

Not even a pandemic can stop her; as the nation-wide quarantine halted her industry, Sydney launched the ‘Lunchtime with Sydney’ Instagram Live show where 125,000+ viewers tune in weekly to watch her interview fashion and beauty icons like Bobbi Brown, Steve Madden, Lele Sadoughi, Alana Hadid, and some of today’s hottest reality celebrities.

The art of pivoting is just one of the many tricks Sydney has picked up over the years that drives her success. Now, she shares her story in her book to help others find their inner voice/style (and look fabulous in the process).

Black leggings are essential to our quarantine wardrobes this fall. They’re comfortable, look great on all women of any age and body type, and are the perfect canvas for dressing up or down. Here are 5 different ways I suggest wearing them.

 

1. Zoom Meetings: Make a statement in the upper portion of your outfit since this is where people will be seeing you. A puff-shoulder cardigan or a blazer in a flexible fabric with a bodysuit or t-shirt underneath paired with a gold hoop earring a bold lip will give your favorite bottoms a professional upgrade. 

2. Socially-Distanced Lunch: If you’re meeting a friend for a socially distanced lunch outside you want to make sure you’re dressed warm! This is where layering comes into play. Pair your leggings first with a t-shirt, then a chunky knit sweater in a fall–approved color (deep burgundy, forest green), and a chic puffer coat. A pair of biker boots is also a fun way to add a little edge to your chilly-weather outfit. Your leggings allow you to mix textures, colors, and patterns, so have fun with it. 

3. Comfy and Cozy: Netflix and chill calls for leggings and hoodies. Tie-dye is here to stay but in fall colors. Throw it on with your pair of leggings and a furry slipper and you’ll still look put together even if you have no plans on moving

4. Virtual Date: You don’t want to look like you tried too hard, but you still want to look put together. Your leggings will complement any top. Show off a little skin with an off the shoulder top paired with a chain choker necklace. It’s not too much but just enough. 

5. At-Home Workout: Pair your leggings to a fun graphic t-shirt or colorful sports bra with a zip-up hoodie over it. The way you dress affects your mood so even bringing out some color to your leggings will make you a little more motivated to head to that online workout class.
