Rap trio, Migos, has slowly risen in the ranks of celebrities who have become known for their sense of fashion.

Their use of designer fashion mixed with that hip hop flare has been emulated by the masses all looking to replicate that Migos aura. Hailing from Lawrenceville, GA the members Quavo, Offset, and Takeoff took the world by storm in 2013 with their debut single ‘Versace’. This possibly set the wheels in motion for fashion fame, since now the trio are regulars at fashion week as well as other fashion events including this year’s Met Gala where all three wore matching Versace suits. The group also brought the house down at the Los Angeles opening of Balmain’s flagship store, where guests like Kerry Washington and Hailee Steinfeld partied like rock stars to Migos music.

Their amazing style is a possible family trait seeing as how the trio is all related. Quavo is Takeoff’s uncle and Offset is Quavo’s cousin. After the release of ‘Versace’ from their Yung Rich Nation album, Migos had success with other singles such as Fight Night, Look at My Dab, and of course, Bad and Boujee which became the group’s first number one single in the US in 2016.

Not too shabby for this group of Georgia boys. Of course with the fame comes attention from Hollywood starlets all wanting a taste of that southern charm. Recently, Quavo was linked to Karreuche Tran, sparking rumors of beef between him and Chris Brown. Offset has reportedly been linked to Cardi B thanks to their recent collaborations and nightly excursions.

One thing that has always been true is that in order to stay relevant is to give the people something to talk about. Pure talent and dope fashion sense will guarantee Migos’ presence will always be felt.

How to Grieve Stylishly

Funeral fashion

Like many others I woke up Wednesday morning to the incredibly sad news of the passing of music icon Aretha Franklin.

It’s funny how you get so used to a certain presence that you never imagine what it would be like if they were no longer here.  As I began to reflect on all of my memories of Miss Franklin, another memory crept into my mind. Back in 2010, the world was saddened by the sudden suicide of legendary designer Alexander McQueen.  This sad occasion was memorialized at one of the most stylish and over the top funerals that I had ever seen. One by one, fashion icons like Naomi Campbell, Sarah Jessica Parker and Daphne Guiness strutted past photographers and thousands of grieving fans decked out in the latest McQueen designs.  It made such an impact on my psyche that I couldn’t help but fantasize about how i would style for a funeral. With the collections for fall 2018, there was no shortage of options.

It goes without saying that you shouldn’t be too sexy or flashy for a funeral.  Meaning anything that shows too much skin or over embellished with colorful sequins is completely out.

Now I’m not saying you can’t have a few accents. A subtle embroidery or print that isn’t too distracting is fine. After all, a true fashion lover isn’t going to change their whole style simply because of a sad occasion.

Any accessories should be minimal, however, they can still have some pizzazz. Nothing too over powering but with just enough detail to set yourself apart from the rest.

Something as sad as a funeral is stressful in itself, but maybe a stylish outlook will be a stepping stone to putting the pieces back together.

RIP Aretha Franklin

Pearls have always been a symbol of elegance, but until now, most women have had a rather conservatory approach towards them. This year, major fashion taken a modern approach to pearls with bold designs and refreshing collections.

In this article, we are going to show you 10 ways to style and wear your authentic pearls, proving that they are not only meant for formal events and can easily be incorporated into daily outfits.

  1. Black & White Rings with Monochrome Outfits

The inspiration for this outfit comes from none other than Beyoncé. Queen B stole the show during the 2013 Grammy Award’s with a minimalistic hot black-and-white jumpsuit. What can you take away from this outfit? Less is always more. Monochromatic outfits work very well for business casual and formal settings. They can also be styled easily with statement and pearl jewelry. We strongly recommend accessorizing real pearl rings, either Akoya or Tahitian, with classic studs, stilettos, and monochromatic jumpsuits or office ensembles.

2. Statement Pearl earrings with Bold Sequins

Statement earrings are big this season. Major fashion houses are incorporating over-sized pearl earrings into daring outfits. A perfect way to wear statement pearl earrings is by combining them with bold sequin blouses or dresses. Bam! You have not one, but two powerful accessories that complement each other perfectly. You need nothing else. Simply pull back your hair in a sleek hairdo to emphasize the earrings and neck-line and you’re set.

3. Turn your necklace into a bracelet

All you have to do is to wrap it around your wrist for a few times until it fits. Combine with a simple jumpsuit or a short dress for the perfect summer look.

4. Ribbons on Pearl Jewelry

Want to repurpose your pearl jewelry without damaging it? A simple ribbon is the answer. You can get a silk ribbon which will actually protect the pearls and wrap it around the necklace or a bracelet. Look for a colorful ribbon and combine it with black or white pearls. You can even create a set by adding ribbons to your pearl earrings. This type of necklace works extremely well with classic cut dresses and cocktail outfits.

5. Silver Necklace with Pearl Pendant

Silver necklaces are amazing because you can wear them with any outfit. Also, they are pretty easy to combine with other pieces of jewelry, especially with pearls. For this style you will need two or three long silver necklaces of different lengths and a simple pearl pendant. Choose a black pearl to add a bit of mystery to your outfit or combine with a velvet choker. We strongly recommend wearing this type of jewelry with simple V-cut blouses or dresses.

A pair of interesting pearl earrings can also be used as a brooch. You can place them on your favorite dress, t-shirt or jacket. Just use the pin and catch it on the material. Then close the pin with the special lock and your will have an amazing brooch that gives you a more feminine aura.

8. Reversed Long Pearl Necklace

The perfect look for a relaxed dinner date can be achieved with a maxi dress with flower prints and a backdrop pearl necklace. Get a backless dress and your favorite long pearl necklace and give your look a twist. Instead of wearing the necklace normally, let it swing on your back for a more dramatic appearance or purchase a backdrop necklace designed specifically for this purpose.

9. Black and White Jewelry

Another interesting way to style your pearl jewelry is to select two pieces of jewelry and combine them. Get a black necklace and a white one. Combine them, adjust strand sizes and you will get a special piece of jewelry for a classier occasion.

Pearls don’t just come in black and white, they can also be lavender, pink, or golden. As far as colored pearls are concerned, none are more fabulous then colored baroque pearls and golden south sea pearls. All baroque pearls have a unique shape and incredible luster. You can buy the most interesting colored baroque pearls and create your own long necklace to wear at work.
