New York City Inspires A Twist On Menswear

New York City is not only one of the fashion capitals of the world, but it’s also a fashion world all on its own. Whether it’s the woman who bikes around Lafayette with her head held high, sunglasses on, with a pair of the sickest huarache sandals or the lady entrepreneur, sporting a black pencil skirt and a red blazer, waiting to get her coffee, New York City is a fashion world that will always attract twenty-year-old Jamie Lee Buhain. This Rutgers University business student talks to YHM about what inspires her sense of style and how she makes it her own. YHM: You said New York City is the fashion world that has greatly inspired you. How has it inspired/affected you and your style? JLB: Not only does the city itself have visual and emotional appeal, but the chic New Yorker who walks around its busy streets also conveys a story simply by how she is dressed. Fashion is essentially centered on culture and even if I have not been to many different fashion …

Breaking Trends In Men’s Fashion

Individuality — How is this viewed in terms of fashion? For New Jersey City University graphic design student Christian Valintino Rodriguez, inspiration for individuality and style comes from breaking trends and creating looks that are unique and timeless. In today’s society, hip-hop runs the fashion world. According to Rodriguez, rocking brand-named products is the norm. As young men idolize artists in the music industry, they tend to follow these fashion standards. At this age in fashion when everybody is wearing the same styles, Rodriguez aspires to be different. “In all honesty, I go to thrift shops, buy an old button-down from the 90s and wear it with pride even if I paid three dollars for it. People stare at me because I’m wearing something of good quality they can never wear,” Rodriguez said. Undoubtedly, artists and celebrities continuously inspire young people worldwide, but inspirations vary. Watching artists such as Kanye West taught Rodriguez that it’s not about the kind of product you’re wearing, it’s about how you wear it. In all honesty, Kanye West made …

Inspirations of a Fashion Blogger

Young girls rely on certain fashion blogs and fashion bloggers to give them inspiration and advice on daily ensembles. But what inspires fashion bloggers to constantly update their blogs? Twenty-one-year-old Lisa Lee talks with YHM to give us the scoop on what inspires her taste in fashion and her blog! YHM: What inspires you, fashion-wise? Everyone!! People that I see on the streets and online. Lisa Lee (LL): “Pieces of clothing inspire me in a great way as well. My followers on my blog and Instagram definitely inspire me and my style.

Where and how did that affect your sense of style? I feel like everywhere you go will affect your style. LL: “For example, if I’m in San Francisco, I will want to dress warm and have an urban street-style feel. Another example is if I go to a city like Berkeley. I will want to dress …

Amy Valentine: Timeless UK Fashion

Daily outfit inspirations vary with every woman. It can be as complex as fashion from other cultures or as simple as the weather outside. No matter where the inspiration comes from, it all comes down to the execution. For eighteen-year-old Amy Valentine Joslin, daily ensembles are inspired by her day-to-day mood or sometimes the music she is currently listening to. “I’d say that my style usually combines femininity with a touch of masculine grunge,” Joslin said. She may be inspired by simple things, but Joslin executes each style effortlessly with uniqueness and creativity–nothing like YHM has ever seen before on Timeless Fashion! “My favorite high street shops are Urban Outfitters, Topshop and Zara but I also like to shop online from independent businesses a lot,” Joslin said. The thing I like most about independent businesses is the originality and effort that goes into the products. The people that run them work so hard and really believe in the products. Young Hot and Modern Magazine has seen Timeless Fashion from Cali to New York City, but how …

Originality in Fashion

Originality–something every woman wants to achieve but often finds hard to attain. Whatever the season, almost every woman is wearing the same fashion trends, but what makes each style different for every person is how they make it their own. For Berkeley College Healthcare Administration student Jeanne (Salvador) Lanvin, inspiration for originality comes from various cultures across the world and meshing old trends with new ones! “My style is very free-spirited vintage with a dash of modernism. Styles from different cultures inspire me, particularly bohemian cultures. I make it my own style by accentuating an outfit with mostly metals and mixing together different trends from the past years,” Lanvin said. To be original, creating balance between seasonal trends and your own style is key! Just like for any other woman, high-waisted shorts are one of the essential items in Lanvin’s closet this summer. But by simply adding gold accents such as her belt and pair of heels, Lanvin creates a summer ensemble that is one of a kind! The one person Lanvin found inspiring when …

Versatility Saves the Day in Girl World

Versatility — How is this term viewed in the fashion world? For College of Southern Nevada business student Jacqui Manabat, style inspiration comes in the form of the urban, street style of men’s fashion with a focus on its comfortable and sporty aesthetic. “Versatility is my favorite word. If someone wants to go for a certain look, I say go for it! It doesn’t matter what others think, really. I strongly encourage a versatile wardrobe. It keeps things fresh and fun,” Manabat said. Women have proven their role in a man’s world for ages. In terms of fashion, sometimes a woman can rock men’s wear better than most men. As a tomboy growing up, Manabat always had a knack for choosing the perfect outfits that made her feel like one of the guys. “My go-to outfit for summer would have to be a 5 panel strap-back hat, a loose fitting top or sports jersey, shorts, a flannel around my waist, and my black high-top converse,” Manabat mentions. Some of us are afraid to be daring …
