It's a Trend Thing / Sneakers

It should be pretty apparent to you by now that sportswear has been the leading trend for me and it's not just because wearing sneakers gets me out of wearing high heels! As much as I love spending time creating my stylish little outfits this trend is quick and easy and can look so effortless. Now, when I say athletic wear ladies I am not condoning wearing your Lululemon attire from head-to-toe, that does NOT mean you are on trend! There is a time and place for that and it's while you are working out or on your way to or from that workout. However, wearing elements worked into your style can pass the test although I don't tend to take that literal of an approach when I suit up. For example I love wearing sneakers day-to-day but in reality those aren't the ones I'm wearing at the gym and that adidas tee I own that in the past I would have run in I wouldn't even dare to today - I will handle that piece with care! Keep the clothing loose fitted or try working in those branded tees with a blazer and experiment with what can work with a pair of sneakers.

The Look / Thigh High Slits

fall trends, 2014 fashion trends, fall fashion, shop for jayu necklace, brave leather belt, rebecca minkoff heels
Oh Angelina, you really started something at the Oscars back in 2012 with that super risqué high slit that everyone couldn't stop talking about. It took some time but social acceptance is here and it's a trend that is about to go as rampant as crop tops! I don't know about you but I'm pumped to rock this trend, in several styled ways of course. Plus, mom always told me I had great legs so why not show them off - or I guess one of the two! This also takes me to another bonus of the look: with the length you get more coverage and with more coverage means more warmth for fall which sounds better than a mini to me. I don't know about you but I become a complete wimp in the colder months. I'll take whatever coverage I can get so count me in! This piece just like many other skirts has the versatile to be styled the way you wish. Don't get caught up thinking this is only a piece for formal occasions because it's not. Get cozy this season and throw a chunky knit up top to create a mashup of glam vs casual! 
Share with me your thoughts: is this trend to0 sexy for your style or are you looking forward to wearing the thigh high slit as much as I am...if you haven't already.

Three Way Tie / Shop for Jayu Giveaway

Photographer: Artiese

It's time for another Trend Struck giveaway!! In the summer you may recall I did a post on Shop for Jayu where I modelled with two other bloggers for their fall collection lookbook. Well, today I'm giving away my personal favourite from this seasons collection, the Florence necklace. When I was first shown the new collection I was immediately drawn to this piece. I knew I needed to have it, I knew I needed to be the one wearing it for the lookbook and I knew it needed to be the piece for my giveaway. Aside from my love for wearing silver that came back with a vengeance last spring, I also loved this pieces versatility. You should be familiar with my Three Way Tie segments by now that usually focus on a clothing piece, so this time I switched it up a bit by featuring the necklace I'm giving away and how you can wear it three completely different ways. 

ENTERING THE GIVEAWAY: To do a quick entry just follow one or more of the steps at the end of this post. HOWEVER I want to challenge you! For an additional 5 entries I want you to share with me how YOU would style this piece in the comment section below if you won it. If you want it REALY BAD you can get an additional 10 entries by showing me! If you already own a Shop for Jayu piece take a selfie showing how you are wearing your piece 3 ways again using #3WayJayuChallenge. You have one week to enter so get to it and enjoy my looks!

LOOK 1: The main statement
Big pieces like this already speak volumes on it's own but I thought I would style it with a trend I have been seeing all over the red carpets lately: bare chesting it with just a blazer. Risqué I know but the necklace grabs most of the attention anyway. Dare to go bare?

LOOK 2: Layer it up
Heavily layering necklaces is a trend that is still going strong and this necklace is a perfect foundation to build upon. Layering is great when you feel like wearing a more basic outfit like wearing all one colour like I did too. Going bold with necklace layers is a simple way to add some punch. Play with different lengths, different metals, different styles until you've achieved a nice balance.

LOOK 3: Foot accessories
Hands down my favourite! I have been seeing foot jewelry pop up everywhere lately and I have been Trend Struck by it. When I saw this necklace I knew it would be just as natural to wear in on my foot as it was around my neck. With summer at it's end this wouldn't be the most ideal way to where it at the moment but who else is planning trips down south to break up this terrible winter that's on its way? Grab a second and accessorize in this unexpected way while you hit the beach, but don't forget my invite!
