4 Must-Read Fashion Magazines

  • Vogue: This magazine is probably the most popular read among other fashion magazines. Vogue usually contains the hottest fashion and makeup trends while also advertising products. There are different versions of Vogue all over the world. For Example, Teen Vogue, Vogue Paris, Vogue Italy, etc. If you happen to enjoy this magazine, make sure to get the September issue of Vogue. The September issue is the highlight of the year for Vogue. It is not so much a magazine but more like a book. You can spend hours reading this issue and gather inspiration. 
  • Harper’s Bazaar: This magazine is also a popular read among many people with different interests. Harper’s Bazaar has celebrity news, beauty trends, and of course, fashion. This magazine is slightly different from Vogue because it has tea on the major celebrities scandals. I like searching on the home page to find the latest news on celebrities and throwing every last bit of my dignity out the window.
  • Marie Claire: This magazine has a little bit of everything. You can find information about fashion, health, travel, culture, etc. This magazine is good at having aspects that appeal to a large crowd of people. Its is a good read for somebody who has many passions. 
  • Glamour: Glamour magazine has a lot of women empowerment packed in it. They recognize different women for making a difference and defying what society says. The articles packed in the pages are filled with style tips, beauty tricks, and inspiration to make a difference. 

Fashion Eras: Explained

1920’s to 1940’s: Men wore suits with big blazers during this time period. Turtlenecks with big coats were also seen frequently. Women wore button up shirt dresses and fitted blazers.

1950’s to 1960’s: Audrey Hepburn made a huge impact during this time. Her elegant tea dresses and classic style was charming to many people. Men wore cardigan sweaters and vests on casual days, however, most of the time they wore suits.

1970’s to 1980’s: This time period for style was downright confusing. From bright colors and patterns, to BIG hair and cakey makeup, it was a time people will never forget. One person that helped this time period’s reputation was Princess Diana. In the 80’s, Diana was all anyone could talk about. She had everyone swooning over her fabulous gowns, and who could blame them! She really was the people’s princess.

1990’s: Rachel Green was the style icon of the 90’s. Everyone wanted her layered hair and cute everyday outfits. This time has many trends that came back in 2018 and 2019. Hair clips, mom jeans, and graphic tee’s are all coming back in millennial and Gen z outfits.

early 2000’s: I cringe at the sight of anyone’s style from the early 2000’s, from low- waist jeans and frosted lip gloss. Any red carpet picture of Ashley Tisdale from 2006 to 2010 should be removed from the internet. Also another fashion mishap: SKIRTS OVER JEANS! Jade west said skirts over jeans among many other things were   Something that she hated.

2010’s: People have been copying outfits from celebrities such as Ariana Grande and the youtuber Emma Chamberlain.

5 Color Combinations That Will Spice Up Your Wardrobe

  1. Navy blue and coral give off almost royal vibes. The bright coral works in harmony with the subtle blue. An outfit you can combine these colors is a coral sweater or t-shirt over a navy blue midi dress. Silver or gold jewelry pair nicely with this color combination.
  2. Seafoam green and black. Again, pairing a bright color with a neutral always works well. A stylish outfit you can make with these colors is a black slip dress with a seafoam green t-shirt or turtleneck underneath.
  3. Violet and yellow. These colors are striking when put together and make a statement. One outfit could be violet jeans and a yellow off shoulder top.
  4. Maroon and pale purple. This combination is one of my favorites of all time because there is so much that can be done with it. Maroon jeans with a pale purple long-sleeve shirt is a comfortable and timeless outfit.
  5. Black, white, and red. Some may think this combination looks like a deck of cards, but when put together right, it makes a show-stopping outfit. black and white patterned pants with a red turtleneck would look so cute walking down the street in Chagrin Falls.
