Chillen with Chi; Your Guide to Bright Colors in Fall

When you think of fall fashion, bright pink probably isn’t a color that crosses your mind. However, a chunky sweater most likely will. Bright colors are unexpected during the autumn season, but they are not stopping style blogger and beauty queen Chinyere Adogu of Chillen with Chi from wearing over-sized sweaters that are simply ideal for the cold weather. For our latest Look Book feature, Adogu pairs a candy pink, cable knit sweater with a glossy, leather skirt. The mix of fabrics creates a fashion-forward outfit—who cares what the season is! The raven colored mini skirt makes the cozy sweater pop even more. Adogu explains that she loves experimenting with color. “My style is effortlessly chic! I love colors! Color-blocking, mixing prints, a pop of color or the same color head-to-toe.” Her off the shoulder top plus the geometric mini skirt definitely pushes the boundaries of fall fashion yet makes total sense. Her look is easily a summer to fall transition piece. Complementing her outfit is her choices in accessories; a brightly colored matching pink …

5 Ways Bloggers Changed the Entrepreneurial Game Forever

Typically, we think of an entrepreneur as a person who organizes and operates a business. But in the past decade, the Internet has challenged both meanings of “entrepreneurship” and “business.” With the rise of blogs, beauty, fashion, and food bloggers have turned into entrepreneurs, responsible for creating businesses out of their websites. Here are five ways digital influencers have changed the entrepreneurial game forever and how you can follow suit.

Speak Out, Speak Loud: Combating Campus Assault

It would be wrong to say violence ends when you turn the television off or act as if injustice didn’t exist anymore, but if you reflect back on 2016 so far, one of the biggest topics that often dominated the news and blogosphere was the high frequency of assaults on college campuses around the country. In a place where many young adults begin to learn who they are and who they want to be while enjoying a comfortable freedom and safety among their peers discovered freedom and safety could not always be guaranteed. One of the most discussed topics surrounding sexual assault has been the People v. Turner case. Brock Turner was an undergraduate student at Stanford University in Northern California when he was apprehended by two Swedish international students who witnessed Turner sexually assaulting an unconscious woman. The students who stopped Turner from continuing to assault the young woman stated that they intervened because they could tell that the woman was clearly unconscious. Turner was then subsequently arrested, charged and indicted on two counts of felony assault and …

A Styled Mind: Relaxed Autumn Vibes

New York City is a place where high fashion can turn into a buzzing street style trend in a minute. Our 2016 Blogger Look Book featured some of this fall’s most talked about trends: slip dresses, bomber jackets, a touch of velvet, metallic accents, sleek tops, and reconstructed jeans. It’s time to wrap up our feature with Ashley Weddington, an admirer of all things fashion, hence why she’s the face of A Styled Mind. Weddington’s focus on ASM is to showcase “different ways to put ensembles together while staying on trend all year round.” In our look book, Weddington’s outfit features a low cut, split-neck blouse with a tie-front. The blouse is black and geometrically patterned in orange and green hues. The burnt sienna and olive tones affirm the vibe of the season. She pairs the blouse with a pair of relaxed fit cropped denim cut-offs. The frayed ends at the bottom of the legs give the outfit a worn-in feel. On her feet, Weddington sports a pair of black strapped heels. Finally, she accessorizes with …

Stylophyle: A Little Edgy & A Little Sporty

Stylophile- n. A person who likes to dress up and seems to have a different outfit for every occasion. v. To dress up in fancy clothes whenever you go out because you don’t know who you’re going to meet, and you don’t want to get dressed down. Influenced by fashion, art, culture, and beauty around the world, Sabrina Poon describes herself as just that—a stylophile. Except, she stylized it into Stylophyle. Poon is a New York City-based blogger who loves traveling, food, fashion, and repeat! With beauty and brains, Poon’s full-time job isn’t a style consultant, but a neurology nurse. Surely she did not don scrubs for our fall look book; but instead, a pair of mesh drawstring pants and a light blue button down. Right now is the time when every cool girl (and guy) in NYC grabs their leather biker jacket and runs outside. The demure vibes in Poon’s look totally lets the biker jacket off the hook, but for added coolness—don’t hesitate grabbing it! She finishes up with pointy black leather heels, a black fringe bag, and sunglasses. Her ever-changing …
