Free People Capitalizes on Athleisure with Fall 2016 Good Sport Collection

Fashion

Is the athleisure trend ever going to stop? As far as we know, the answer is no! Free People has just capitalized on what could be dubbed as the athleisure movement, with a brand new fall 2016 line-up entitled as the ‘Good Sport’ collection that is already available for purchase at FreePeople.com.

Free People Fall 2016 Good Sport Collection

With more than 40 different styles that could be easily flaunted at any occasion, Free People’s Good Sport collection features go-to items especially for the pre-fall transitional season. That said, get ready for tons of cozy garments, warm colors and small details that are absolutely adorable.

As for the line-up’s main influences, aside from athleisure, most of the ensembles could be linked to Gucci’s iconic geek style, as well as Prada’s urban-chic attitude, the lines, cuts and silhouettes of which are perfectly in tune with these colder months’ Nineties-inspired vibes.

The most interesting part is, however, how incredibly harmonized the Nineties and late Seventies are throughout the collection, as it was during those decades that a similar, yet more vintage athleisure trend began to grow. That’s why we get comfy sweatpants combined with super-fancy aviator-style sunglasses, or even laced-up hoodies paired with urban-inspired biker ankle boots.

As for the overall color palette, Free People focused on grays, dark greens, burgundy and light-blue shades, leaving it up to the cheerful pops of red ochre and yellow to revamp the entire collection.

Following what is going to be one of fall’s leading trends, Free People will provide you with all the essentials you might need to stay warm, from knit beanies to cute socks. Other appealing accessories include sporty-chic watches, glittery headphones and holographic iPhone cases, which could easily become perfect birthday gifts as well.

Back to the clothing section, Free People’s fall 2016 Good Sport collection is not only perfect for those who love the athleisure trend, but for those who are indeed good at sports too. Besides sweatpants and joggers, the line-up also features super cozy pullovers, such as the Yo Yo Pullover, as well as edgy leggings and sports bras, the refined lines and rich colors of which make them perfect for transitioning from day to night just by adding the right accessory and jacket.

The outerwear section, which varies from coats to hoodies, features two of the collection’s must-haves: the Sedwick Peacot and the Nicholas K Farley Trench. Both are wintery and a perfect transitional season investment accordingly, and will please those who love clean-cut silhouettes, as well as those who prefer structured, airy figures.

Other It-items include the Loud and Proud mini dress with a plunging-V neckline and contrasting hems (which is the result of the perfect mixture of the Preppy and the grunge Nineties styles), and the sensual Nothing But Net bralette, which those who are truly fond of the Nineties could even dare to wear over a plain white t-shirt.

The Free People Good Sport collection is already available at the brand’s, with price tags ranging from below $ to $.

Greek Myth Fashion: Hestia, Hebe, & Demeter

Fashion

Hello, and welcome to another installment of Greek Myth Fashion, where we draw fashion inspiration from Greek mythology. 

In this article, I will complete the series of outfits inspired by the twelve Olympian gods by showing you three outfits inspired by Hestia, Hebe, and Demeter.

Hestia - Goddess of the Hearth

Hestia is the goddess of the hearth, home, domesticity, and architecture. She is a virgin goddess like Athena and Artemis, and she is known for her chastity, kindness, and non-confrontational nature.

Hestia's duty in Olympus is maintaining the fires of the Olympian hearth using the animal sacrifices made by mortals. She traditionally received the first offering during each sacrifice in the household. Failure to maintain the domestic hearth or the temple fires was considered a failure of domestic and religious care.

Products: DressEarringsBraceletsSandals

For a Hestia-inspired look, simplicity is key. And that can be achieved by pairing an orange maxi dress (reminiscent of the hearth) with a pair of gladiator sandals. Additional colors are introduced in the outfit through the set of bracelets and the earrings. 

Hebe - Goddess of Youth

Hebe is the goddess of eternal youth and the cupbearer of Olympus. She served nectar and ambrosia to the gods and goddesses, until she married Heracles after he gained immortality. (Sorry, Disney fans: The movie is very different from the original myths.)

Hebe was a popular art subject between the 18th and 19th centuries, as many royal ladies were portrayed as the goddess. In paintings, Hebe was often depicted alongside an eagle which was thought to either represent her father Zeus, or have the ability to rejuvenate like a phoenix.

Products: TopSkirtBagRing SetLoafers

To capture the youthfulness representative of Hebe, I put together a schoolgirl-with-a-twist outfit. A white blouse with a Peter Pan collar, pleated navy skirt, and black loafers might bring back memories if you had a school uniform. Now add a green crossbody bag with tassels (because green is the color of rejuvenation) and a set of rings, and you have a preppy look perfect for going to lectures.

Demeter - Goddess of Agriculture 

Demeter is the goddess of the harvest, agriculture, and fertility of the earth. She also presides over religious law and the cycle of life and death. And she is the mother of Persephone

Demeter taught mortals the secrets of agriculture, and is the one who determines how bountiful the annual harvest is. Her wrath would immediately lead to famine due to death of the crops.

Products: PantsTopHeelsNecklaceRing

Demeter's patronage over the harvest is best translated into an autumnal outfit. Transition from summer to fall by wearing a pair of yellow culottes and a rust-colored long-sleeved top. Add khaki block heels and accessorize with a leaf pendant necklace and a floral ring. Now you're ready to greet the end of August in style!

Next year, after Rita Ora fills her shoes at "ANTM," media and beautymogul Tyra Banks will help teach a business course for graduate students at Stanford University. The class, called "Project You: Building and Extending your Personal Brand," is run by management professor and former producer Allison Kluger, who tapped Banks as a co-lecturer after seeing the supermodel speak at an event for the university's Stanford Women in Business organization.

Banks, who graduated from Harvard Business School's Owner/President Management Program (OPM) in 2012, will teach up to 25 M.B.A. students for a span of two weeks, according to The Wall Street Journal. Upon completion of "Project You," students will create their own personal brand, know how to navigate on-air appearances and strategize long-term goals across several social media platforms.

Banks joins the ranks of a number of celebrities who have made a mark in academia: Kanye West has waxed poetic on art and design to students at Harvard, the Los Angeles Trade Technical College and the University of Oxford. Questlove has taught multiple courses on music at NYU — most recently, about PrinceJames Franco, who somehow managed to acquire a handful of college degrees alongside his acting career, has spread his wisdom on film and writing at UCLA, University of Southern California, as well as NYU. This year, Angelina Jolie was named a visiting professor at the London School of Economics.

For the first class, which kicks off in April 2017, Stanford students are required to create a minute-and-a-half video about themselves, their personal brand and goals. No pressure, folks, just don't forget to smize.

Dree Hemingway Stars in Accessorize Fall/Winter 2016 Campaign

Fashion

Dree Hemingway, actress, starlet and model with 33 thousand twitter followers and 107 thousand Instagram followers, is now starring in the Accessorize fall/winter 2016 campaign. With a variety of interesting looks, a multitude of deep colors and interesting textures, excellent styling and the use of Dree Hemingway, Accessorize has made quite an impact. The fashion impact is clear and the overall effect is stunning.

If you are not familiar with Accessorize, they are well-named providers of nearly any accessory you could want in a variety of styles at reasonable and affordable prices. They have everything from a kid’s section to an occasion and vacation section.

For those aware of Accessorize, they knew that you could certainly finish off an outfit with the products they offer, but now they want everyone to know they can complete a look. From hair accessories to shoes, Accessorize has got you covered.

The plethora of products and options shown throughout the Accessorize fall/winter 2016 campaign always revolve around Dree, never overwhelming her and that is something fantastic. In an effort to show off the accessories, many campaigns overdo it, making them look gaudy or piled on. Accessorize did the opposite. Everything is well appointed and looks fantastic in its place. Dree looks effortless and chic in many of the photos and studiously well put together in others.

Certain shots featured Dree beneath a lot of handbags and other showed her surrounded by products as though she opened a lot of gifts. All of these photos had more in common than Accessorize and Dree Hemingway – they look like fun.

She is surrounded by perfectly coordinated gifts that range from hats to shoes, or standing beneath a few bags that range in size and color, and yet they work well with each other and the background. There are no random fillers, no ugly items and no tackiness in the photos either on or around Dree. Everything is just fabulous.

Everything is fashionable and fun, which is what accessories should be. The Accessorize fall/winter 2016 collection features deep, rich colors in luxe settings. Dree Hemmingway looks stunning in a royal blue and gold suit with beautifully matching scarf, hat, shoes and bags.

Accessorize is intent on showing that they provide much more than just cute little accessories, but fully realized looks. The details have the perfect sort of matching elements to make them mesh together without continuing the same pattern, but not so different as to clash.

When dealing with accessories, it is a very difficult line to walk between perfect and too much or too little. Understated and overdone are common side effects of having too many options. While Accessorize can provide you with plenty of options, they wanted to show everyone that they can provide you with the right options.

With Dree Hemingway they showed that you can have a perfected, polished look with the products they provide, and fit into whatever environment you were aiming for.

If You Love Lipstick, This Is Going to Be Your New Favorite Instagram Account

Fashion



When you read sites like POPSUGAR and see features on the new lipstick shades launching, you may fall in love with the colors. But then you wonder, will this actually look flattering on me? Sure, a bold purple or electric blue seems great on paper, but once you put the hue to your pout, it may clash with your undertones.

Two women — Piaget Ventus and Michelle Meredith — are here to help answer that question. They created a brilliant beauty Instagram account called @willitlookgoodonmetho. Their mission:

"Different skintones to help answer the question: will it look good on you? A lipstick guide by amateurs for amateurs."

In it, they share photos of themselves wearing diverse cult lipsticks from Revlon, Nyx, ColourPop, Sonia Kashuk, and more. Piaget has dark skin while Michelle is fair, so you can really see how the color complements these two ranges.

Keep reading to see how gorgeous (and affordable) lipsticks look on their complexions.
