STRIPES+SNEAKERS

I have suddenly fell in love with the idea of stripes and sneakers. I am a true believer of being comfortable above all things, but doing it with style. Most people think of the idea of sneakers as athletic and too casual. But what if I told you to throw that statement out the window and dress them up. Depending on your special occasion of course, you would want to see which one would best fit your style.  Mixing athletic performance gear with fashion forward pieces can result in an effortless and wonderful look. And I will show you how amazing it can look with our second trend in just a second.

The second trend that I am in love with are stripes and believe it or not anyone can pull them off. I have heard so many ladies complain that because they are plus size that they can’t wear stripes cause it makes them look bigger. Ladies, that its a lie from the Devil himself do not fall for that trick. Of course that with every trend and style you should follow what is more suitable for your silhouette but that doesn’t mean you can’t follow or be afraid of trying that trend out.  A tip I have learned from myself is that you should wear the stripes on the smallest part of your body and match your body size to the size of the stripes. Meaning if you have more to love on top then wear a striped pattern on the bottom half like a skirt, shorts, or jeans. If its vice versa then try on the top and play around the pattern of the stripes. Also looking for different patterns and styles like vertical, horizontal, chevron, princess cut, and etc. If you are more full figured then wear bigger stripes or if you are more petite wear smaller stripes. Its also about how good you are at layering remember  its all about balancing your outfit or making a bold statement. Depending on which one you decide to go for at the end less is more so if you feel like stripes are all ready bold enough then minimize the amount of accessories.

That’s great so how can I now combine these two awesome trends into one without looking too casual? or how can I make it work for a date, work, or etc?  Let me show you a few easy, and simple staples that you probably already own within these two trends for a great outfits. Here are some examples I’ve made for you.

The “Beauty” Series with MBerri Photography

During the last two months Evetzie of Evetzie’s Repertoire and FX Styling has partnered once again with Melissa Berrios of MBerri Photography for Melissa’s new photography “Beauty” series. Her inspiration for the shoot was a fairytale like session. As a MUA and wardrobe stylist there is nothing more exciting than having an open platform where you can run all your creative ideas and try them out. As a team between the model Daniela Beatriz, the photographer Melissa, and I together we came up with the best artistic direction on makeup, hair, and wardrobe styling to make sure we capture all of Melissa’s vision in a cohesive form to the fullest. First we ran three in studio photography sessions to play around with various looks all different from each one but still keeping the vision in mind.

After three days of hard work, communication, and collaboration Melissa found an amazing location which went flawlessly with her series and this is how the shoot came out. Against all odds we defeated all amount heat, humidity, and pouring rain so basically all kinds of weathers to make this shoot come to life. Here is a preview of behind the scenes and final photos.
