The Utility Trend: Starring Boilersuits

I love jumpsuits, especially boilersuits. In my opinion the utility trend is never really out of season, as many of the colors and silhouettes are already wardrobe staples for many people. However, the military inspired trend is definitely back in full force this season. From belt strap and cargo pants, utilitarian style bags, waist belts, and khaki, green, and brown silhouette styles; almost every designer to fast fashions retailers have fantastic pieces to wear this season. Checkout some of my fav designers 2019 RTW runways looks filled with military inspired trends from belt bags seen at Fendi (which I'm absolutely obsessed with), co-ord looks at Sies Marjan, to boilersuits seen at Stella McCartney, Dries Van Noten, and many more.

I kept my look pretty simple with no accessories. I styled my Topshop jumpsuit with a pair of Manolo Blahnik brown suede booties I got from a sample sale a few years ago. I love boliersuits because it's a statement piece and not much is needed to make the look pop. Boilersuits are so easy and comfortable to wear; and can be paired with sneakers or heels, which makes for a perfect day to night look. There are so many great affordable options on the market right now, I may be grabbing a few different looks myself. Are you feeling the boilersuit or will you pass on this trend?

Runway Remix: Boss RTW Look 50...Sheer Tops and Bright Suits

Welcome to my first runway remix segment! My runway remix involves me recreating some of my favorite runways looks with similar head to toe styles at budget friendly prices. The look below is a recreation from Boss Spring 2019 RTW show, look 50. If you haven't noticed, I love a co-ord suit and this yellow is spot on for one of the biggest trends this season, neon. I loved the styling of this look and how it's paired with flat sandals, giving off chill vibes mixed with a bit of sexy as the top is sheer. This look isn't traditionally style how women's suit are usually wore, which is what I love most. A non-traditional color women's suit, a sheer top, and flat sandals, I'm definitely here for it. 

I remixed this runway look wearing a Zara double breasted blazer and matching flared pants, with a mustard color ruffle sheer top from Forever 21, and Acne Studio leather black sandals.

Welcome To Styling N Thangs: Golden Girl Vibes

Welcome to Styling N Thangs! My name is Mietta and though I'm not new to blogging, I haven't blogged in years. The below images are from my first time collaborating with a professional photographer to shoot images for the blog, and lets just say I'm learning a lot about blogging already lol. While I enjoyed the photo shoot, I must admit I felt quite awkward taking photos and having people watch me on the streets of NYC. All in all, I had fun and I'm very impressed with the outcome of the images thanks to Denton. See below for details on my look.

One of the "IT" colors trendy for spring 2019 is marigold yellow. This yellow-orange hue has been seen throughout the Spring 2019 runways and is the perfect pop of color to incorporate into your spring wardrobe. As someone who personally gravitates towards black, I love the way this marigold color compliments my complexion. I paired my monochromatic look with a co-ord top and pants look from Mango, along with my Apparis faux shearling coat (Apparis is a brand I discovered last year and loving), and a mini Topshop bag to complete the look. Will you be rocking marigold yellow this spring?
