A vest can seem to be a useless garment, specially to be used as a coat but, don't be wrong, it can also be a perfect accesory, the perfect tool to play with overlays, giving a different touch to apply to any combination. In addition, it's an item that can be transformed depending on the current trend: denim, leather, studs, army, boho, crochet... And we can keep counting the materials and patterns that make every vest look unique. Same thing happens in Trendtation, where every look wearing a vest is so different. So don't forget when looking into your closet, vests also exist!

But wait! here's the latest scoop: Chanel have just introduced this kinds of shoes in their cruise collection 2013. So, now is the right time to choose from 13 models that we simply love.

When the weather turns warmer, we start to wear more jewellery than usual, and if it is shiny and colourfull even better. For the last two summers the main fashionable items were the bracelets (like friendship ones), but this time we focus on necklaces and collars.

These trendy necklaces have catched fashion blogger's attention. You can try to build one if you are good at crafts but if not, here you have 12 beautiful models you will like, go for them!
Many designers have shown them on catwalks, like Miuccia Prada, but "real people" have always seen vinyls and methacrylates as an oddity, a fantasy that was part of the fashion show and that's all. Untill now. Why not wearing see-though shoes? Some types seem to be brought back from the future, but maybe this future has arrived and we have to start building it from the bottom. The question is that, for the first time, plastic is used in shoes by most important mass market brands. Would it be the next material to conquer fashion?
Is easy to ignore this, but only seeing some pics taken around fashion weeks we start thinking... This jacket, this blazer, this biker have something special, and this special thing is not about what but how. Wearing jackets over shoulders is the last trending pose in streets. Very feminine and chic, this new fashion has seduced us. Perhaps some years ago we'd laugh at people wearing this, thinking about how "grandma" it could be... we will never know. The truth is we are in love with "over the shoulder style", and you? Observe these looks we've found exploring Trendtation and judge it for yourself.

One of the hottest prints of upcoming season is called dip dye, and what doest it mean? It's simply a deying effect from one colour to another from the same cromatic family, although you can find infinite combinations and mixtures between tones. Some brands that have followed this trend are Topshop or Zara, inspired by Dries Van Noten's last year creations. If you dare, you can do your own dip dye clothing at home, only if you deal with bleach. Overall, the experiment can be successful in denim fabric because is the most resistant. But if you do not want to risk, which is understandable, just above the text you'll find many dyed proposals. Check it out!
