The year is quickly coming to a close. We're not really sure where the time went, but we do have the closets to prove it happened. LOL! Let's take a look back at the fashions that rocked our sartorial world! From summer styles to homecoming glamour, it's been another amazing year of style. 

Homecoming

HOMECOMING: This year, it was all about granny-chic maxis and stunning all over sequins. In fact, sequins have been so hot you will definitely be seeing more of them in 2015. 

Sequins

Celeb-fashion

CELEB STYLE: Who can resist looking to celebs for style inspo? We can’t, that’s for sure! This year, Lauren Conrad showed us a midi done right. We also super love Ashley Madekwe's matchy matchy look. It's all over cute!

Denim

DENIM TRENDS: This year we saw denim get patched and destroyed on a whole new level. And dark raw denim continues to get stronger and stronger.

SUMMER TRENDS: Floral prints were huge for guys over the summer, not to mention camo and preppy looks. For girls, it was all about the crop top, rompers, and fringe!

Girls_03

PROM TRENDS: Short party dresses reigned supreme for prom, along with luxe pantsuits! Each year, Fashion Club mentors FIDM Fashion Design Students in upcycling thrift store finds into picture perfect prom looks inspired by celebs. How amazing is Sania Josiah's design inspired by Janelle Monáe, and this Lucy Hale look by Blake Patterson.

Hey Fashion Girl!!

I'm getting prettty tired of my look. I wear a tank top, cardigan, and leggings practically every day. I'm looking to spice up my outfits a little bit, however I don't have much money to buy new clothes. I am definitely open to upcycling some of my older clothes but I need advice on how to do it. 

Thank you!!

~Rachel 

Hi Rachel!

I love the cardigan/leggings look, but I know what you mean. Sometimes, we just need to change it up, and hit the reset button on our look. Everyday outfits need to be versatile and comfy, right? So, why not try wearing a dress or skirt over your leggings. It's kinda like substituting your cardi with a dress for a completely different look. You could also pair your cardi with shorts, tights, and boots. How cute would that be.

I found these looks on Forever 21 that I absolutely love. Here's what you do. Dig through your closet for your cutest graphic tee, then style it with a casual skirt and sneakers. Throw on a statement jacket like this moto, and you're all set for a totally new look.

Why not try wearing your cardigan with a sequin shift dress, utility boots, and a beanie. Or sequin leggings with a graphic tee and a casual coat. The whole dressy/casual mixup is so cute. It shows that you're chic and totally chill at the same time.

One last suggestion. Accessorize! Never underestimate how different your look can be if you just throw on a hat, like this fedora. Adorbs! A totally simple dress gets a whole new life when you wear it with a fedora and boots.

Anyway, let me know what you come up with. Would love to see pics. Send them to fashiongirl@fidm.com.

201411-dress4less-raglan

It's finally feeling like fall in LA. The temperature has dipped a few degrees below blazing, the air is super dry, and giant leaves are beginning to litter the sidewalks—and we love it! It's time for fall fashion at long last!!

Images of collegiate tailgate parties and bike rides at dusk come to mind. And guess what—sporty raglans are just the thing to wear. Even if you're not a football fan (and who are we kidding, we're not!), get cozy in the t-shirt of the season. Throw on a scarf and take your pooch for a walk in the park, and why not kick some dried leaves around while you're at it.
