The Hottest Quarantine Pastime and Fashion Trend

People are obsessed with tie-dying their clothes

Article by Darcy Schild of Insider

There might be a shortage of jigsaw puzzles on Amazon, but for many people, purchasing a tie-dye kit and transforming an otherwise plain outfit into a rainbow masterpiece is the next best way to unwind and find joy while stuck at home.

Search terms like “DIY tie-dye” and “tie-dye sweatsuit” surged in popularity on Google and YouTube the last week of March, and tie-dye kits are among Amazon’s current best sellers in Arts, Crafts, & Sewing.

The process for creating the vibrant print isn’t anything new, but the nostalgia factor of tie-dying, plus the ease and ability to find tutorials online, is making it a popular quarantine past time.

The tie-dye craze is being fueled by YouTube and TikTok creators

Several YouTube creators have recently leaned into tie-dying, pegging the colorful activity as the ultimate social distancing boredom cure.

For example, “Tie Dyeing Everything In My Closet Cuz I’m Stuck At Home” by YouTube creator Lauren Riihimaki, also known as LaurDIY, has received more than half a million views in a little over a week.

Other YouTube hosts, such as Kristee Vetter, Jordyn Rebecca, and Brooke Miccio, have shown thousands of viewers how they transformed plain sweatsuits purchased from Amazon for $20 or less into Urban Outfitters-worthy loungewear sets – which can retail for hundreds of dollars – using tie-dye kits and bleach.

TikTok is also a tie-dye treasure trove in its own right, with tons of tutorials that show users how different techniques and supplies, like bleach (and even toilet cleaner that contains bleach), can be used to achieve certain patterns or effects.

Dressy Shorts for Summer

As a public service to my readers, I must inform you of a variety of fashion trends sweeping the country.  Therefore, I feel it my duty to submit an article that does just that-informs you of a fashion trend.  Pay no attention to the beautiful models as they are just showcasing the apparel.  That’s my story and I’m sticking to it !  Read on:

An article by Maison de Cinq

Dressy shorts. A contradiction in terms, right? However, I have seen them more and more in the last few years, and I must say, I’m a convert!

Previously, I always thought of shorts as casual, and I really only wore them with flip flops or Converse sneakers. However, dressy shorts worn out at night with heels can be such a cute look! I admit, I am not a skirt wearing person for the most part, so I guess they speak to me. They are short (like a skirt) but way, way more comfortable. And sexy!

They look great with a blouse, a blazer or a loose tank top. Heels are the way to go if it’s an evening out, but for a dressy lunch or day event, they are really cute with flats as well. I think they are a great option when you are not sure how dressy an event will be and you are torn between a dress and pants. Obviously, they are not appropriate for some events (a wedding is one that comes to mind) but for dinners out, drinks with friends, or a summer party, I think they are a great choice. I’m even seeing them on the red carpet! And for those of you who aren’t comfortable in shorts, just go a little longer. Knee length or almost-to-the-knee shorts are adorable with heels, and no different than a skirt – only cuter!

These Hair Colors Will Be Everywhere This Spring

By Jennifer Aldrich and BH&G

As a new season nears, it’s time to revitalize your hair with a fresh color (and maybe a healthy trim, depending on the state of your tresses). Although it can be tempting to go as light as possible when the warmer months roll around, professional colorist Elle Hegarty from Ian McCabe Studio in Washington D.C. says it’s time embrace lower-maintenance colors and healthy hair. And she’s not the only one who loves well taken care of locks: Google searches for “natural hair color” have remained consistently high in the past five years, and queries peak right before springtime.

Hegarty, a graduate of Paul Mitchell Academy, has spent the last five years mastering her technique at salons and barbershops, as well as high-end beauty brands Butter London and Cover FX. She exclusively uses the balayage technique on her clients, which involves hand-painting highlights on the hair. The end result is a natural look that maintains the hair’s integrity. The best part: it doesn’t need to be maintained as often as foil highlights since it doesn’t have the harsh start-line highlights are notorious for having. Plus, the grow-out is beautiful. “I don’t think it’s healthy to highlight too frequently,” Hegarty explains. “The longer you can go, the healthier your hair will be.” Hegarty, who shows off her expertise on her Instagram page, reveals her five favorite spring hair color trends to try this year.

For warm-toned blondes, playing on the golds can result in a gorgeous rosy hue. “It looks more like ‘I go to the beach all summer’ as opposed to ‘I go to the salon all the time,'” Hegarty explains. She says her clients with this color come in once every four months and also stop in for gloss treatments in between colorings.

For those with dark hair, brunette highlights are the way to go because they cause minimal harm to the hair and are fairly low-maintenance. Hegarty says she doesn’t like putting blonde highlights on darker tresses. “It doesn’t look believable and is very damaging.” This look only requires highlights twice per year, but she does ask clients to stop in every six to eight weeks for a gloss treatment to tone the color and gives strands a healthy shine.

Icy blonde is breathtaking for those who like to be bold, but this subtler side of the spectrum is ideal for a more natural look. As far as blondes highlights go, Hegarty says this option is relatively low-maintenance and only requires a salon trip once every three to four months. However, a good at-home regimen is essential to keeping blonde hair healthy between visits. She recommends Milbon hair products, such as the Plarmia Hairserum Shampoo, $23 on Amazon.

Spring isn’t always about going super light. Dark brunette highlights on black hair are both beautiful and easy to maintain. Hegarty says this look only requires color once per year (yes, really) and a gloss every four months. “I love this for my clients who are such a dark level,” Hegarty says. “It’s just so pretty.”

If you tried pumpkin spice hair for fall, this red might be the next hue for you. For blondes, this color requires root touch-ups and a gloss treatment roughly every eight weeks, but only needs a full painting once per year. Brunettes should get colored two to three times per year with a gloss treatment every eight weeks. Hegarty loves this rich auburn on clients with fair complexions that have a pink undertone, but be aware that it’s long-lasting. “Red is one of the hardest colors to remove,” Hegarty explains. “If someone decides they want red, that’s what they’re going to be for the foreseeable future.” The process of going back to the original color is time-consuming and, if rushed, can damage the strands.

Thanks to Jennifer for this dose of springtime dreaming.

The Top 5 Fashion Trends That Will Rule 2020

If nothing else, I am all about fashion. Right ?  Well, maybe you are.  And if you are, you’ll want to read all about this year’s fashion trend because that’s the kind of person you are.  So dive into this year’s predictions courtesy of stylecaster.com:

“Without further adieu, here are the top fashion trends we’re sure will hit big in 2020—and how to shop them now and be ahead of the curve.”

1. Western Wear

Fashion stylist Courtney Sharp wants us to know that the western trend can’t stop, won’t stop in 2020. “Especially cowboy boots,” she tells StyleCaster. “I think we’re going to see that a lot more, especially in the summer.”

2. Power Suits

Maybe it’s because the 2020 presidential election is here or perhaps we just love a good co-ord set—either way, the power suit is back, and we couldn’t be more excited. The key is to keep it monochromatic. Shirts are optional. And you win extra points if your suit is oversized and slouchy.

3. Voluminous Silhouettes

According to Sharp, there’s a high chance that we’re going to see a lot of puffy sleeves and architectural silhouettes. She tells StyleCaster that there will be “a lot of volume in the kind of material—like organza and tulle—and tiered, floofy bits.”

 

4. Marabou & Ostrich Feathers

The early 2000s are back, and I’m so ready for it. First, I’d like to start by saying thank you to Maddy Perez from the HBO drama “Euphoria” and her glittery homecoming outfit for this ostrich feather revival.

5. Not Your Average Leather

Tired: black leather jackets. Wired: Literally any other color and style of leather. Leather will be big in 2020, but as an earth-toned overshirt, jumpsuit, or even trousers.

Well that’s it from me.  Oh there’s much more at this web site, for those who are more adventure-minded:

The Trendiest Hair Colors for Winter

Slide 2 of 23: This ultra-flattering warm blonde, seen on the likes of Gigi Hadid, is “an ashy golden beige,” according to Stephanie Brown, Master Colorist at IGK Salon Soho in New York City.

 

Slide 16 of 23: You don't need to dye your hair purple to make a dramatic statement this winter. Long, black hair like Kim Kardashian's stands out, yet looks natural with all skin tones.

Slide 21 of 23: Amy Adams's glossy auburn is exactly what your winter hair Pinterest was missing. Why? Her red is vibrant, yet not brassy.

Slide 13 of 23: Already blonde or platinum blonde? Try an icy hue  like Cara Delevingne's for winter. Bonus: The rigorous upkeep means more time spent indoors at a warm and cozy hair salon.

Slide 10 of 23: If you're stuck between blonde and brunette, get the best of both worlds with a soft fade from dark roots to blonde hair. To brighten your look on dark winter days, frame your face with blonde pieces like Margot Robbie.

Slide 8 of 23: Take red hair a few notches warmer for winter with a dusky crimson shade. Zendaya's shade has hints of chardonnay red with onyx and auburn accents for dimension.

Slide 6 of 23: “For brunettes with almost black hair, like Lizzo or Shay Mitchell, look for an almost gold undertone for the hair,” Brown suggests. “It should almost be like gold flecks are reflecting off of it.”

Slide 4 of 23: Billie Eilish’s signature look may be daring, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be trending. “I think people will like to play around with a version of this look by starting out with platinum hair, dying the roots one color, and leaving the ends either platinum or dying it another,” predicts Brown. “Pastel colors would be ideal for this look,” she adds.
