2021 is the year of fashion comebacks. Let’s look at some summer must-haves.

  • Claw Clips

Claw Clips have been around for a little bit now, but they are not going away anytime soon. There is a variety of colors and styles to choose to match anyone’s style. Especially during the hot summer months, these clips are perfect for keeping hair out of the way while looking super stylish.

  • Rectangle Style Sunglasses

Remember a couple of years ago when oversized sunglasses were in style? Well, things have changed. When it comes to the perfect pair of sunglasses for the summer, go with a rectangular shape. It is flattering for everyone, and gives off a very chic, celebrity look. It is an extremely accessible product to find. Stores like Quay Australia, Urban Outfitters, Amazon, and Ray-Ban all giving different varieties of pricing from only $15–160.

This is the perfect look for a beach or pool day this summer. Brands like Revolve and Frankies are showing off this new look, and all the celebrities are wearing it.

  • Rubber Sandles

Sandals are always a necessity for summer, but this specific shoe is life-changing for fashion lovers.

Macy’s and Steve Madden have a similar styles for much more affordable prices that still following this fun trend.

  • The Color GREEN

The color green has been so underrated throughout the years, but it is a show stopper this summer. Green is such a flattering color when it comes to showcasing your summer glow. It is so easy to find green accessories, which spruces up any outfit. Green clips, dresses, shirts, purses, shoes, and so much more add a pop to an otherwise plain outfit. It is a beautiful color to wear for a sunny day!

  • Bucket Hats

If someone were to wear a bucket hat and call it fashionable in 2017, I think we would all be a little confused. Now, bucket hats are in-style more than ever right . There are so many different styles from websites such as Aritzia, Amazon, Lack of Colors, and Zara. Only the trendiest men and women are wearing bucket hats this summer. It is time we all get on-board with this trend while it lasts.

This fabric is now being seen everywhere, and is going to be a summer hit. There are terry bathing suits, cover-ups, and loungewear. It is a super fun look to have for this summer.

  • Bra Tops

The smaller the better! Influencers and celebrities have made it the new trend to wear tiny mini tops paired with baggy jeans and jackets. It is perfect for hot summer days.

  • Side Cut-Outs

Side cut-out dresses are the perfect touch to spice up an outfit. It shows off some skin and is flattering to the body. This has been a huge trend this year, and will continue to become more popular as summertime approaches.

  • Linen Fabric

Nothing is better than linen during the summertime. Linen is breathable and highly absorbent– doesn’t that sound amazing for when the sun is beating on us in the summer months? Linen sheets especially from the brand Parachute, are a great option for a hotel luxury look. Linen button-up shirts have also been a favorite trend this year. Linen shorts are easy to throw over a bikini, to go to dinner, or even to wear for a beach wedding!

  • Over-Sized Blazers

The best way to have the off-duty model look. Over-sized blazers thrown over a mini top with denim shorts is a perfect way to dress up efforlesly while still looking like Hailey Bieber. Brands like H&M, Princess Polly, Vince, and Storets all sell this look, which will fit almost anyone.

  • Back-less Pieces

If it is 80 degrees out all summer long, it must be mandatory for everyone at least tries out a backless look. Back-less pieces make for the perfect fit to feel sexy and stay cool in the heat.

  • The Summer Boot

Boots in the summer? Absolutely. Celebrities and influencers have started this trend and it will be a hit this summer. Pair a short or tall boot with a classy summer dress for brunch.

  • Gold Hoops

Gold hoops have been a staple for some time will continue to be a staple this summer. Pair some gold hoops from Adina’s Jewelry, Madewell, Anthropologie, or Nordstrom with a fun swimsuit for an extra stylish flair.

  • Athleisure Sets

Seize the day with fun matching biker shorts and a sports bra. There are so many stunning colors that all flatter a summer tan. This looks takes zero effort, and is extremely easy to move around in.

Fayetteville Road and Nordstrom x Women of Color FashTech Brunch

Fayetteville Road, rising retail technology agency, just partnered with Nordstrom to host the Women of Color FashTech Brunch. Established due to the lack of community and limited opportunities for women of color in the intersection of creative and technical industries, the WOC FashTech Brunch will celebrate its first national collaboration with leading fashion retailer Nordstrom. Remaining true to its origin, the event series will celebrate the successes and accomplishments of the top women of color in the fashion and beauty industries all while creating a safe space for them to discuss their brands and personal experiences.

Founded in 2018 by Jessica Couch and Brittany Hicks, the WOC FashTech Brunch was first held during New York Fashion Week and has since grown 50x in the past few years.

The two entities are leaning on one another to curate a raw, uncut conversation between black beauty founders, gatekeepers and experts across the fashion and beauty industry – all while practicing social distancing. Key names in the beauty industry Autumne West (National Beauty Director – Nordstrom) and Misa Hylton (Celebrity Stylist & Global Creative Partner MCM), AJ Crimson (Founder/CEO AJ Crimson), Dominique Boseman (Founder, Spraise), Samantha Garvey (Designer, S. Garvey) and many more.

The virtual event will be syndicated across multiple platforms (later this week) and reach more than a million women of color who are beauty and fashion enthusiasts, featuring the women behind the scenes serving as gatekeepers in the beauty and fashion industry. This highly anticipated event will serve as a prelude to an exciting beauty launch at Nordstrom.

NORDSTROM NYC FLAGSHIP

By Armon Hayes × Vaughn Lowery

Co-President, Pete Nordstrom, along side of corporate partners hosted a tour for retailer’s newly largest single project investment in their history. On Oct 24th, Nordstrom will launch its first flagship in Manhattan since the 1920s. An exclusive onestop shop adjacent to the Nordstrom Men’s store located on West 57th street & Broadway. The seven-level flagship store, designed in collaboration with James Carpenter Design Associates, forms in the base of the ‘tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere.’ With 320,000 square feet, it will embody an experience which is responsive and reflective of its customers. After all, a great design encourages people to stay longer and shop more. And, with 19-foot ceilings, it’s an open canvas for an interchangeable yet flexible floor plan.

The new floor plan allows for discovery, with range to explore and transition through brands freely that they haven’t experienced before. The infrastructure is designed to funnel natural light through transparency with floor to ceiling glass, intertwining the shopping experience to the city’s skyline. The atrium possesses a waveform glass façade which allows for interaction from customers inside and out. Chain-mail veils and lighting installations lend character to the location, reflecting the city’s cultural events as well as major holidays. 

“A rapidly growing younger consumer who’s engaged has emerged,” asserts Pete Nordstrom. Instinctively creating a new culture and how we shop that’s relevant to life experiences. Today one-third of sales are e-commerce, which represents 30% of Nordstrom’s business.

For over 100 years, the retailer has stood the test of time. The climate of brick and mortar for many retailers have shrunk and/or has become nonexistent. Nordstrom understands as their customer evolves, their level of service and retail atmosphere should be elevated as well. Using technology and innovation, the new store’s communication system will allow employees to order beverages and/or garments throughout the location.

In addition, customers will have access to 24/7 buy online & pickup, in-store personal stylists and tailoring while you wait. The Vice President of Creative Projects, Olivia Kim, has fabricated initiatives like Pop-In@ Nordstrom – an exclusive space for emerging designers. Merchandising will include a curated depth of products (clothing, accessories, shoes, beauty, children’s, home etc) across price points.

Lastly, there will be 7 food and beverage options with 4 full-service restaurants, 2 bars and an innovative, gluten-free doughnut stand:

¤ Shoe Bar will feature handcrafted cocktails, speciality coffee drinks and a selection of small plates.

¤ 2 restaurants are in collaboration with Chef Tom Douglas.

¤ 1 restaurant is in collaboration with Chef Ethan Stowell.

For a mega metropolis that’s often explored while on foot, this fashion marquee’s newest residence seems to be long overdue.
