Diversity Chic | Looking Back on 2016

I honestly cannot believe it has been 2 full years since we started the Diversity Chic journey. It has been such a joy showcasing various trends with some of my favorite people. I don’t really know if it has had an effect on anyone outside of our Diversity Chic group, but putting a body positive spin on trends is soooooo important. The world is improving in terms of what is deemed “acceptable” for various body types to wear and I’d like to think we have had the teeniest tiniest part in that. Here’s what Diversity Chic means to us:

I have to tell you guys, I’ve been struggling to write this post. I have so much to say but at the same time, I can’t find the words. You know the feeling, when there’s so much bubbling up inside that you think if you start to let it out, you won’t be able to stop it? I think my friend Cady Heron described it as word vomit.

Diversity Chic | 70s Edition – Can You Dig It?

The 70s are alive and well in 2016! We’re working some of our favorite 70s trends in a modern way that’s perfect for ushering in fall fashion. Take a look at how the four of us channeled the 70s without looking like we’re heading to a costume party. I’ve always been a throwback kind of girl – growing up on the Beatles and the Stones will do that to you, I suppose. That being said…the 70s was never really my jam (besides 70s classic rock, of course). For some reason, I loved the 60s and then glossed over the 70s to focus on the big hair and bright colors of the 80s.

I really only have one memory of trying to relive the 70s and it’s Halloween 1999 – that’s right, the year after my iconic Dana Scully costume. My friend Tally and I (the same friend who was Mulder the previous year) decided to dress up as Sonny and Cher for Halloween. Why? I honestly have no idea because we weren’t fans and neither were our parents, really. I blame Britney Spears for covering “The Beat Goes On” on her first album. ANYWAY after lots of looking through books and magazines from the 70s, I landed on an iconic Cher look – bell bottoms with a white fur vest. Sadly, I don’t have photos but it was hilarious. Also, no one knew who we were.

Diversity Chic | Spring has Sprung

diversity-chic-spring-4784It’s spring and I feel like I’ve been soaking up every minute of spring weather before the triple digit Texas summer hits! (Although last year we had a pretty mild summer so…fingers crossed).

You know the drill for spring fashion – pastels, floral, lace, etc. While those are all fine and dandy, at this particular moment they’re just not my thing. Now that doesn’t mean in two months I won’t be rocking some floral but at this particular moment, it’s not what I’m gravitating towards. I’ve been pulling out more neutrals from my closet in comfortable but chic silhouettes – which is exactly what this look is. Then to make it more seasonally appropriate, I just accessorize! Also spring makeup…which I might’ve gone a little crazy with here. I blame the Vice 4 palette.
