If you love bright colors you can knock yourself out. Colors are well represented on the catwalk this year. You can say a lot but this year’s spring/summer fashion is far from boring!
For the ones that want to keep it more neutral, no worries, because also black and white are all over the runway this year! I’ve selected 5 quick fashion trends for you. I have used catwalk proof items from H&M as an example for those who have a lower budget! I mean common, just because we’re not millionaires doesn’t mean we can’t be a fashionista right?!
Tip #1 Dress blue
Blue is a real eye catcher this year. With this lovely fresh color you can’t go wrong! Colors vary from cobalt to aquamarine.
Tip #2 Go bold
Bold prints are all over the catwalk this year ranging from Japanese prints to colorful leopard prints.
Tip #3 Black & white
For a sophisticated and sleek look dress black & white. The minimalist trend is well represented in the collections this year including Chanel, Gucci, Marc Jacobs and Roland Mouret.
Tip #4 Go Minimalistic
For those who would like to keep things more simple this year’s trend is also to keep things very simple and minimalistic. To get the minimalistic look you can go black and white or use simple colors like beige. Also watch out with accessories and your hair style. Keep it simple.
Tip #5 Choose Graphic and Digi prints
Apart from Japanese prints and colorful leopard prints, graphic and digi prints are also totally hot this year.

One of the nail trends of this year is the caviar manicure!
The caviar comes in all kinds of colors so you can make it as bold as you want.

As you can see it’s super easy and it won’t take more time than when you paint your nails regularly. The good part is that the caviar (ball beads) is super cheap and easy to purchase. Amazon offers 12 colors for just 5.53 dollar. Check it out!
One of the hottest hair trends for this spring/summer is the Ombre hair effect. Litterally ‘ombre’ means shadow. It is a coloring effect in which the bottom portion of your hair looks lighter than the top portion. This creates a shadow and if it’s done well it gives you this amazing fresh summer look.
There are different ways to ombre your hair. Some ombre looks mimic the effect of dark roots showing through a light hair dye, while others take a more purposeful approach by simply dyeing the tips of the hair in a lighter shade.
You can make the contrast as strong as you want. To avoid the panther effect I personally prefer a more subtle look. I looked up some examples of celebs that did the ombre look. Some are subtle, others wear ombre looks that are too strong in my opinion. Have a look and see for yourself which look you like.
If you want to get the ombre effect done properly I advise you let a hair specialist do the job. But of course the cheapest solution would be to do it yourself. Therefore I looked up a nice tutorial video that explains how to do it. Enjoy! And let me know in the comment box below how it worked out for you!

Yesterday the Dutch celebrated the inauguration of their new King Willem-Alexander and his wife Queen Maxima (Please note her title is unofficial and is not laid down in a law). As mentioned before one of my questions were what she would be wearing that day. In the morning when former Queen Beatrix handed the thrown over to her son, Maxima wore a dress of the Belgian brand Natan, designed by the owner Edouard Vermeulen.
During the oath in the church, Maxima made her entrance with a completely different dress. Not just a dress, no it was mind blowing and maybe the best dress she ever wore in her entire life. The royal blue dress is designed by Dutch designer Jan Taminiau (http://www.jantaminiau.com/) Check out this picture and judge for yourself.
In the evening Queen Maxima wore another gorgeous ruby colored design also by Jan Taminiau.
For me personally the blue dress is the most outstanding of the three. It makes her look so incredibly royal she almost seems untouchable and she looks so powerful in it. Which dress do you think is the best? Let me know in the comment box below.
