Hey guys!! I know it’s been a minute since I last updated the blog, but I really have a good excuse. This past weekend, I flew out to LA for BET Weekend to film a segment with Centric TV. We sat down and chatted about my life and growing up as a young entrepreneur. We talked most about my three companies: Style & Travel Girl, Superstar Nail Lacquer and Style Shoppe. It was such a great time on set and I pretty much Snapchat’d all the behind scenes action. That’s why you should follow me on there, because that’s where I’m able to share all the action and business in my life first. Follow me here!
Anyways, a lot has happened over the last couple of weeks. Not too long ago, I was featured in Life & Style magazine’s star style section, giving my take and style advice on the Eyelet trend. You’ve probably seen it everywhere and on some of your favorite celebs. One of the questions that keep coming up about this particular summer style is how to wear it without looking inappropriate. Well I shared a few of my fashion tips in the interview, but I also wanted to share them with you here.
Below you will find the conversation I had with Life & Style, which wasn’t all included in the article. So you are the first to get a closer look on how to really rock this beautiful trend all summer long!
What’s great about eyelet? Why is it so popular this season and what does it add to a look?
Ariana: What’s so great about eyelet is the feminine touch it adds to your look. This pattern screams spring and summer and can be worn sporty, casual or dressy.
How do you wear it right, and what should you avoid when styling eyelet?
Ariana: Eyelet patterns can come off schoolgirl-ish if not worn the right way. Mix this pattern with bold accessories like a statement necklace or a leather jacket to give it some edge. Avoid wearing eyelet from head to toe. White eyelet patterns have become very popular this season. Avoid wearing this with white shoes and accessories. Instead, break up the look with pastel colors or nudes to give it street style flair.
How might the size of the eyelets affect the look? When might it be helpful to go with a design that has smaller eyelets instead of larger ones and vice versa?
Ariana: The size of the eyelets affects the look depending upon if you want to go bold or soft with your style. You are able to play up your bold bangles and necklaces with a bigger pattern of eyelets. Go small for a more dressy, classic and dainty look.
How do you store, launder and care for an eyelet piece to keep it looking like new?
Ariana: For the most part, eyelet patterns can be machine washed and dried. I suggest creating a section in your closet for eyelet and lace patterned clothing so that they don’t snag on other clothing or hangers. Patterns like this should be treated with care!
