TRENDS: Ombré nails and maxi skirts

Trend: Ombré nails

Inspiration: Rihanna

While everyone seems to be dying their hair ombré (where the colour gradually changes from dark to light), for those indecisive folk, try your hand at ombré nails. It’s a lot easier to change up nail colours rather than hair colour. There are varying nail tutorials on the Internet, but the sponge technique seems to the be the easiest. It may seem hard at first, but practice makes perfect!

Trend: Maxi skirts

Inspiration: Selena Gomez

The long and lean trend has evolved from full-on dresses to skirts, making it even easier to keep cool in the summer. Maxi skirts are especially great when trying to keep a summer look on the more conservative side, perfect for meeting the parents or casual date night. I tend to prefer pleated skirts over the draped styles because I like the way the fabric moves as you walk, especially if it’s tulle. For those who are more adventurous, try a long asymmetrical style, where the front shorter than the back, or a long tulle skirt with a short liner inside. You still get some skin, but not to much.


I know that I seem to talk about Ryan Gosling and his endless perfection a lot, but I’d rather think about that when considering my sartorial choices. Ergo, that is why I’d rather not have him, Pharell Williams, or Zac Efron on my nails despite how insanely attractive each individual is. Along with those mentioned above, the nail decal set also includes Joe Jonas and Robert Pattinson. Sorry kids, I’m going to keep my admiration on the Internet, not my nails.
