Art of Henri Body Chain – Summer Trend

One look that’s seems to be here to stay this summer are…body chains. They first appeared on sexy celebrities like Rihanna and Miley Cyrus in 2012, but now have turned up in the Louis Vuitton’s 2015 Cruise collection. No matter what your thoughts are on a wisp of gold to wrap around your core, looks like they’ll be a staple this summer.

A body chain is the best way to secure jewelry to your body at the beach, decorate your mid-drift when you wear a crop top (demonstrated by Kate Hudson on the streets of New York) or add a little edge and sparkle to a LWD or LBD at night. LA-based jewelry house, Art of Henri, has some fantastic options to add to your jewelry closet. Known for their belief in the energy of metals and stones, these body chains would seem to provide a certain armor in an everyday or night look. The chain is decorated with Cubic Zirconium stones, said to promote spirituality, self-confidence and physical strength and victory, set in sterling silver plated in Black Rhodium or 24 karat yellow gold ($234.00; www.artofhenri.com).

NYE 2012 Recap: New York, Washington DC, and Baltimore

NYE is a time to celebrate “new” beginnings with family and friends! This is also a significant holiday because we create resolutions that will inspire us for the upcoming year.

Although 2012 was dynamic year, I think it’s universal to say that we’re (all) striving towards individual change, personal growth, and a closer spiritual connection for the 2013 year.

Check out our New Year’s Eve {2012} Recap from Style Life Fashion.com

NEW YEAR’S EVE 2012 

From New York, Washington DC, and Baltimore the socialites were out having a good time.  Cheers (raise your champagne flute) to the New Year!

 

Tyrice Johnson from The Belvedere Agency in New York

 

Celebrating in the New York: New year, new trend! Among the number of new trends this new year in the Big Apple, many New Yorkers and celebs, opted to attend small intimate house parties rather than foot the bill for a lavish night out. Low-key parties were attended by socialites and trendsetters throughout the city. Despite the smaller venues attended this New Year’s Eve, fashion was in full swing! Tuxedo jackets adorned or paired with heavy jewelry was a consistent trend.

Celebrating in Washington DC: I celebrated New Year’s Eve in DC at Alero’s Restaurant and Bar Nine. I purchased my dress and coat from H&M and wore Zara Shoes. My New Year’s Resolution is continue to work on me in becoming a better person!

Kimmie West from Style Life Fashion.com in Baltimore, Maryland

Celebrating in Baltimore: We celebrated at the Pisces Lounge, at the Hyatt Place Baltimore (where we also made a reservation for the evening.) I wore a black lace dress purchased from H&M along with black, leather knee boots (from Guess.) I also carried a black fur coat, just in case we stepped outside for the fireworks. The ADIDAS snapback cap was a gift to my hubby, who thought “this” would make a “fly” picture! {wink}

Color Blocking: The Guidelines

Color Blocking is the latest trend for Spring/Summer 2012.  Ladies everywhere are mixing and matching their favorite shades to create a chic look.

But color can affect you in a variety of ways.  For example, color can change your mood, style, and even your complexion!

And although we are eager to partake in the latest trend, there are certain guidelines that we should follow for selecting colors.  Most importantly, your selection of color will largely depend on your body shape and personality.

GUIDELINES for CHOOSING COLORS

*  Choose a neutral or basic color that could be worn often (black, beige, navy blue.)

*  Light and bright colors are great to play up your best features.  Example, a yellow blouse can be worn to accentuate bronzed skin.

* Any color can be worn with black!

*  Use a color wheel to help figure what shades are monochromatic and complimentary.

*  If you want to look tall and slimmer wear a contrast of one color; to appear heavier in one area wear bold, bright colors.

*  Remember, colors provoke feelings.  For example, red represents power while blue is calming.

Also, don’t just color block with your clothing but it can also be done with your make up/cosmetics.  How many times have we seen a great manicure with a variety of fun hues?

Ultimately, color blocking is the mixing of colors within the same family but with the right touch anyone can look like a star!

T.I. – Hip-Hop Artist {Fashionable} Breakthrough with AKOO Clothing

Female hip-hop artist and athletes have held it down when it comes to being fashionable, for example Nicki Minaj, Queen Latifia, Venus and Serena Williams to name a few. But, when you consider male hip-hop artist and athletes, a number of things come to mind and one must add fashionably conscious to that list!

 

Now, more and more male rappers and athletes are becoming more concerned with their image and a few are becoming the go-to-guides for what to wear and what not to wear. Hip Hop mogul T.I. and Grand Hustle Entertainment CEO, Jason Geter, founders of AKOO, are the perfect examples of artist moving towards a more polished, refined and overall debonair look.

 

The brand is loved and worn by many a-list celebrities to include New York Giant, Ramses Barden, and breakout artist Chester Gregory, who was spotted most recently performing in the brand. To find out more information about the latest collection from AKOO, click on the link AKOO.com
