Summer Lemonade Edition

This summer I see a yellow mellow being the next hit. This is how I would rock this style and that’s all. “Drops Mic to the sound of slaying in formation.”
My rebel instincts are giving off of a rebellious lemonade taste. One way to describe my style is boldness either it is in my walk on the wild side or the way how I dress. This rebel at heart knows the ways of Beyonce’s slay moments of formation. Now let’s get into formation to slay.

Cropped Flaired Jeans Trend: To Flood or not Flood

When I was in middle school I dreaded the feeling to never have my pants flood, but now we have a new trend out: Cropped Flaired Jeans. Is this something you rebels would rock or naw?

It is interesting beacause this trend is very much stylized. Take Alexa Chung’s look below. Chung has that ability and is known to be able to wear whatever and make it work. But how is she able to pull this look off you must ask? Well it is in the way how she styles her outfits with close attention to be proportionate throughout her cropped flaired jeans. What she pairs with these is a slimming tailored jacket with a normcore blouse and a small cute bunny rabbit pocket book this gives the allusion of long legs even though she is already tall. Basically the jeans allow her to look long and lean. So keeping your look simple and letting your strong assests show will accomplish your true mission to making this work for you. Some trends need a little personalilization to work. Don’t follow the trends if it doesn’t make sense.

The moral of the story rebels is follow what works with your body type and use porportion as a tool to get what you want. 

Until next time my lovely rebels. Keep rebeling with your style.

Blow Them Out of the Water And Rock in Style: Ruby Rose Rebel Style Icon in my Eyes

In three days I noticed how I binge watched Ruby Rose, in Orange is the New Black. She took my attention away and I had to google who she was. Model, DJ, and actor Rose have captivated me and other people as well. It has to be her gaze and how she is able to interact with Piper to point she is hooked. There have been talks of women crushing all over her. She has a great sense of style, knows who she is and doesn’t give two cents what others think of her.

On my search on Rose I found this lovely video from YouTube on gender fluidity. In a past article on Elle.com Rose explains what it means to be gender fluid. “I’m not a guy; I don’t really feel like a woman, but obviously I was born one,” says Rose. “So, I’m somewhere in the middle, which – in my perfect imagination – is like having the best of both sexes.”  

For Rose she is able to move into two identities that she is content with. Rose adds,”I have a lot of characteristics that would normally be present in a guy and then less that would be present in a woman.” So look at this video that questions this notion:
