Fashion Trend Favorite: Hang Ten (Old Brand, New Style) ♥

I walked into one of my favorite stores (Kohl’s) and what do I see? My absolute favorite brand from the 1960’s has made an oh so fabulous comeback! Hang Ten first came out in the 60’s as a surf brand with comfortable and cute clothing perfect for going to the beach in. The brand began widening their selections with new winter items (one of which I own and will hopefully show you later), and the suddenly they disappeared with no more new items or collections. Well now I am pleased to announce this brand is back with some more modern pieces but still staying true to the comfortable fun in the sun feel.

With items ranging from crop tops to warm sweaters, the choices at Kohl’s are a wide range and all very cute. Even better, hang ten items are currently on sale. Let’s take a look at some of my favorites…

The above romper is a good option for those days when your going from place to place. It takes little thought to just slip on this comfortable outfit and go. I would pair this with a cute pair of gladiator sandles matching one of the colors found in the romper, and if your uncomfortable showing your shoulders and back (since it ties around) I would wear a gray bolero cardigan. This item is $22.80 and can be bought here.

This next Hang Ten outfit once again demonstrates the three things I love: cute, comfortable, and easy. You can just through this on with a pair of your favorite flip-flops and go. I like the fringe because it makes it more unique, and the crossed back is a really interesting touch. You can stand out from the crowd without really putting much thought into it.  This item is also $22.80 and can be bought here.

So go out to your nearest Kohl’s or shop online for these cute buys while they are still on sale!

Fashion Trend Favorite: Flashdance ♥

On trend this season more than ever is 80’s fashion, or more Flashdance fashion. Flashdance was a popular movie in the 80’s that brought trends like leggings, leg warmers, loose fitting sweaters, and off the shoulder tees. If your looking for a laid back but stylish look this is def the look for you…

The above outfit was styled with a relaxed afternoon in mind. You can be comfy and stylish all at once with this outfit, and seperate the pieces by incorporating them into other outfits. I chose the RonJon off the shoulder sweatshirt because of it’s comfiness but also versatility. This sweatshirt can be worn in this outfit or thrown over a tanktop and jeans when in a hurry. The added color from the logo adds just enough color to this otherwise basic outfit. Leggings are always a basic need in a closet and I buy mine at Walmart or Old Navy. The reason why I do this is because you get a good enough quality for the small price you pay. The black leg warmers could be bought anywhere but I  like these because they are cheap and black goes with everything 🙂

Above we have a coral off the shoulder crop top inspired by actual Flashdance fashion. If your uncomfortable showing too much skin you can always through a black tank top under the shirt but still have that subtle Flashdance feel. For the pant I went with a coral belted yoga capri which is not necessarily keeping on track with the Flashdance theme, but it will still compliment your top while still being comfortable. If your feeling really 80’s you can always go with a capri legging and some basic leg warmers. When you wear the leg warmers be sure to scrunch the warmer small enough to cover only your ankle and then stretch/style to your liking. Don’t forget to add your favorite tennis shoes and scrunchie your hair up 😉

Don’t have enough money to shell out for these outfits?

Here’s an easy way to turn that thrift store sweatshirt into an 80’s top: http://www.ehow.com/how_5507880_make-flashdance-costume-80s-party.html

Nix the leotard & spandex, and add a simple pair of workout pants or leggings. With the help of my styled outfits you’ll have yourself a Flashdance inspired outfit in no time.
