Neon Fox: A Minimalistic Approach to Fall Fashion

Alicia Nicholls, a Brooklyn-based fashion blogger, is the face behind, Neon Fox. Nicholls’ blog focuses on beauty, fashion, and lifestyle. It’s the culmination of Brooklynite style meets Manhattanite, the embracing of natural hair, and the autonomy of one’s mood in dictating style. She describes her personal style as, “Cool girl vibez with lots of edge!” Noting the latest trends of 2016, she allows her style to portray it all from incorporating Pantone’s Color of the Year, rose quartz, in a recent blog post to donning a slip dress over everything inspired by Valentino’s Fall 2016 Ready-to-Wear collection. Here, Nicholls is sporting a simple, black slip over a short sleeved, mock neck shirt–from Tobi with cotton canvas high-tops by Converse. With this look, Nicholls can revel in the beauty of layering for the chilly weather. The dark hues coalesce with the ambience of autumn and everything it comes with. The basic slip is made edgier with a mock neck zip-up shirt. Converse high-tops are a classic for a reason. They add instant cool to any outfit. Nicholls takes advantage of this fact and keeps …

Tanesha Awasthi: A Girl With Curves, Positive Vibes, & Style

Tanesha Awasthi; if that name doesn’t ring a bell, then you’re clearly missing out on major style trends and some serious body-positive-attitude! Awasthi is a dominant force in the influencer realm with Old Navy, WhoWhatWear.com, Cosmopolitan, and Vogue in her top ranking of press time. She has gained quite the popularity since her blog, formerly known as Girl With Curves, was conceptualized in 2011, but the full-time mommy, wife, and entrepreneur has her super supportive husband, Dave Awasthi, and fan base to thank for her success which she counts as a brave move. “I think sharing who I am and sharing my life online with strangers is fearless, especially considering the person I used to be, painfully shy and insecure about my body, my height, big feet, the list goes on.” Awasthi breaks down her journey, most memorable moments – thus far, and her next chapter in life. YHM: How did you make the transition from a tech-savvy woman to a style influencer? TA: My husband suggested I start the blog back in 2011 when …

Toni & Katrina of Under The Sweater Talk Goals, Blogging & Feminism

Throughout the years, I’ve learned that women supporting other women is one of the greatest things to ever occur. When we go through adolescence, we see girls fighting each other rather than standing next to each other. As we get older and grow more confident with ourselves, we realize that pitting ourselves against other women is a waste of time and energy. With March being Women’s History Month, I hope we can appreciate and value ourselves and also the friendships we’ve made with other women. Don’t pay attention to those glossy magazines that say only one actress can look good in a designer dress. And forget about the “Squad goals”, which ultimately exclude others. It’s 2016 and I say it’s time we join forces with one another. That should be the ultimate goal. On that same note, we’re happy to introduce two amazing women, Toni Esteban and Katrina Bartolome. They are co-founders and writers of the blog, Under The Sweater. They were happy to speak about women’s issues, share their goals, and describe their ideal …

Viktoriya Sener: How to Step Outside of Your Comfort Zone

Viktoriya Sener’s lifestyle is all fashion from her blog Tie Bow-Tie to doubling as a photographer and social media specialist throughout the week. “If you truly have a passion for something, it’s not that boring kind of work anymore. You’re in the process 24 hours,” Sener explains. Originally from the Ukraine, the colorful and confident blogger calls Istanbul, Turkey home and shares with us how she found confidence by taking risks. YHM: What has traveling to and living in different countries taught you about yourself and the world? Viktoriya Sener: Well, let’s say there are no bad nations. There are good and not so good people anywhere in the world. Living in different cultures brings unforgettable experiences and teaches you how to be more patient towards each other. YHM: How does someone with a Masters in Finance Management end up in the fashion industry? VS: It actually helps very much with my blog, if you treat it like a business, such education is a godsend. When I moved to Istanbul, I had a lot of …

Travel & Style with Elle-May Leckenby

We are always on a mission to curate the best of the best in style, culture, and inspiration. Elle-May Leckenby, a lifestyle influencer and period-drama lover, is our latest obsession. The 22-year-old Australian native has the carefree demeanor of an artist and radiates total humility in style. Although she described her fashion sense as flowy and chill, a statement of elegant boho comes to the tip of our tongues. Her laid-back daily schedule is complemented with bike rides, dips in sunny waters off the coast, and rounds of artistic ventures. We took some time to catch-up with the trendsetter who is quick to mention painting as a possible new hobby. YHM: Have you ever traveled outside of Australia and did it have any cultural impact on you? EL: Oh goodness yes! I have been so fortunate to have traveled to many lands. I went to Africa when I was 17 and recently Samoa last year. Both of these cultures were the most different I had experienced. I guess getting out of your comfort zone while …

Her Donsje Amsterdam and Fab. By Fabienne fashion collections are just two of the many highlights Groeneveld has shared with us all. She admits the design world was not for her, but doesn’t rule it out completely. What’s her dream collaboration? “I’m living my dream right now!” YHM Magazine: You’re originally from The Netherlands, but you lived in other major fashion areas. What are some of the fashion differences of living in New York City and London versus back home? Charlotte Groeneveld: Biggest difference is that in London and New York fashion actually lives. People do dress in the latest collections, and there are more fashionable women out there than I …
