Cinched tailored waists hit the runway hard this Fall/Winter season 2018. With women’s health awareness at a high, waist trainers get ditched for something less permanent and stylish to wear! Guys can even rock the trend too! Yes that’s right. See Dior double breasted sport coat below.
Designers like Jil Sander, Roberto Cavalli, Michael Kors, and Altuzarra showcased tailored waisted garments on the runway in power suit silhouettes to make their woman feel all the more feminine. It was the perfect juxtaposition of masculinity and femininity for the current trend of increasing percent of women starting their own businesses. This is a look for you boss lady!
This F/W season you can mostly find this trend on sport coats. A piece borrowed from the boys and chiseled away at the waistline. I adore this Cavalli leopard print blazer. It’s super chic and fun with a refined and structured shape. Based on your body type you can rock the trend with cigarette pants and skirts or a fluid trouser.
Any great fashion will speak to the zeitgeist. I think we are seeing this trend with many women who are finding out they can start their own business. They are no longer confined to the corporate office policies and so they want to dress the part but not sacrifice feeling sexy and feminine. Nothing makes a woman feel sexier than instantly shedding a few inches off your waistline by wearing something. I mean it almost sounds like magic but that is the power of a tailored garment.
Belts are a great idea to DIY your own tailored waist. I recently fell in love with the idea of a belt as an accessory for pretty much any piece. Try your favorite chunky cozy faux fur coat with this Free People leather belt to accentuate the waistline for a completely new feminine look.
How about this beauty from &Other Stories . It’s the perfect pop of color and sprinkle of glam. Pair it with an oversized cardigan to let the belt really shine as a statement piece but to not appear like you’re trying too hard.
Chain belts are another favorite of mine and have been around for years. This one from Asos combines the maximal trend with expressive wording across the belt. It’s a super fun piece and a great addition to any wardrobe.
So you see the cinched waist trend is super easy to wear. You can personalize the trend for your lifestyle and that is super important in fashion. How do you plan to rock the trend this season? Let me know your thoughts in the comments. Can’t wait to hear you guys feedback.
Leisure wear has been a symbol of luxury for some time. Not in the sense of high end or expensive, but a statement that “I don’t have to work and so I am wearing this extremely comfortable outfit and living my best life.” Okay maybe not best life but you definitely aren’t spending the day working for the man or taking orders from anyone. So one would say that’s a pretty amazing life.
Tracksuits have been around for decades, with the trend swaying from the hottest wardrobe addition to played the fck out. They always come back around and hit the fashion world heavy. This time track suits have re birthed in a very luxurious way. Fabrics have been carefully picked to give the trend a better quality. With fabrics like, silk, wool, and jersey woven with cotton, the tracksuit has gotten a high end update. Designers are even tailoring the tracksuit every so slightly for a more put together look.
Incredible how the old is reworked into the new. Tracksuits are still very versatile for travel, relaxed days, and even special occasions. They’re no longer a symbol of leisure but a full on badd ass moment. Celebs are even wearing the trend from NBA players, to runway models and African iconic artists who tell us if they can do it so can we. So let’s own this look and feel powerful and great and work hard all the same. I’m more than happy to drop a few gems on where to get the perfect tracksuit for you.

All the things that inspire you are the very things that will bring you success, if you stop and take the time to get inspired. Sometimes we get so caught up in the reality of things that we forget that faith and dreams are a huge part of creating the life we want to live. You’re working at your job that pays the bills, life’s problems occurring nonstop, and you are exhausted. Don’t forget to find your inner peace! A lot of times it’s so much easier to relish in your struggles than changing your mindset and searching for the light at the end of the tunnel.
Having the right mindset will make sure you are equipped for anything life brings you. Everyone goes through hardships in life, it’s a part of life. Focus on what you want out of life, what you need to do to get there over time, and surround yourself with a solid team. A solid team could be your roommates, friends who share your passion, your manager, or anyone who contributes to your growth on your journey of success.
Having a solid team is major when working towards accomplishing your dreams because there will be times when you want to give up and run as far as way as possible. Good friends are supportive, stimulating, and never pass judgement. They add to your ideas, and even inspire new ones.
With all these things, you are ready to step outside of your comfort zone and do all those things that keep you up at night. Go after what you want in this life. If you aren’t sure where to start make small strides. Everyone wants to be the best at what they do that sometimes being the best version of YOURSELF gets lost in translation. Stepping out of your comfort zone means asserting yourself, taking that extra mile on projects you come up with, and doing things that will put you ahead of the game. It isn’t easy doing such brave acts of professionalism but not doing so can keep you in the same place for the rest of your life. Don’t let your comfort zone kill you! Life has so much more to offer.
