 Ways to wear LEATHER in summer!


Leather is a staple of winter and florals are a staple of spring and summer-stereotypical-,when you tell someone otherwise their jaw drops,Risking a fly to be swallowed.

Well fashion breaks it's own rules! Recently many celebrities have been rocking leather in summer,surely it looks good on the red carpet on models and movie stars and you wanna rock it like your favourite rockstar but OH the sweat!!
Well F&M TO THE RESCUE! Here are ways to wear summer leather!


1-Light,airy yet leather-Y!


It's obviously hot in summer and you don't wanna be sweating, Ain't nobody got time for that!
You can wear any type of leather pant/jacket without feeling too hot and thats by pairing your leather with breezy,fresh looking pieces

Demi is pretty known for wearing leather in summer,especially with cute little dresses!
That yellow dress adds colour to the outfit,but the leather detailing on the neckline and slightly messy bun add to the edginess of the outfit which is what you're looking for when wearing the opposite dress code of the season!



Jason Woo 
The pants are a bit too hot for summer since they're black leather,but the light coral lace top adds that summer element.This outfit is now fresher since you'll be able to feel the summer breeze on your arms!




2-Coloured leather

This is an even MORE daring option,Since you're going with this head turning trend…might as well go all the way!

Blake Lively in Mustard Leather?
BREATHTAKING…
you see that guy on the left kind of clapping? That was me when I found this photo,the dress has flawless lines and the shape of the corset is what gives this dress a fun summer feel.




Iris Van Herpen
This is a kind of a silver grey kinda colour.whatever it is….it's cooler and lighter than black!



3-Shorter Leather

Wearing pieces like skirts and crop tops in the form of leather can be slightly less hot than wearing full pants or a long sleeved top!

Leather Skirts

They add a hint of sophistication but they can also be SO fun to style!




Leather Shorts

Leather shorts are so chic yet very edgy and can be styled in many ways.


Leather Crop tops

The crop tops call for special attention when worn,it's pretty unusual but extremely classy. 





4-Accessorising with leather

This is the easiest way to wear leather in summer,you can wear leather belts,shoes,purses or a jewellery item!
And none of these would make you feel like you're boiling in June while wearing tin-foil.
Also this is a great way if you're just not daring enough for a leather jacket,top or pants but still want to rock this trend.









           






            



That was my take on how to wear leather in summer! I have been LOVING this trend and I know you do too,and now you know how to rock it through your own personal style!
I hope I helped in a way or another and if I didn't -yet- here are some outfits worn with leather! Just to inspire you a little bit :) Follow me on Twitter and Instagram -rahaf_fashion- and on here so you can keep up with my blogposts!

Charles James:Beyond Fashion

Met Gala 2014

Best dressed list

If you didn't know the Met Gala event is exclusive only to the best fashion icons and movie stars in the business,also the ticket is $25,000 per person…so not anyone can attend anyways.
This event was just too good and fancy to pass up , last year, the theme of the met gala was punk and this year it's Charles James! Which meant the stars chose to either go BIG or go home , although a lot of them were a disappoint (maybe they went too big) some of them looked outstanding.  
These are the stars that I thought were FABULOUS!


1- Blake Lively in Gucci

Speachless,I think she was THE BEST DRESSED celeb of the entire night for me,It screams Hollywood glamour,I think champagne is such a luxrious colour-maybe her colour to me-I don't know how she's gonna top this look ever!



2- Taylor Swift in Oscar De La Renta

So it's obvious that trains and pinks were huge for the night,T-Swift looks angelic in this gorgeous light pink number,definitely the opposite of last years punk rock look she had,also the train from the back is the most adorable thing other than her face <3 <3

3-Selena Gomez in Diane Von Furstenberg

The two besties definitely rocked it! Selena looked just as gorgeous as her BFF T-Swift,in this breathtaking Burgundy gown,it's simple but well tailored which is the most important thing to look for in such a big event,the huge Lorraine Schwartz earrings are GORGEOUS and they really put the outfit over the top.


4-Rihanna in Stella McCartney

Bad yet classy RiRi is my favourite! She looked Splendid in a two piece dress,her hair up,stunning.Also what about the tattoos peeking out from under there?


5-Kendall Jenner in Top shop

Yes,it's hard to believe that such a big name would wear such a not-so big name.Kendall looked  STUNNING and even though you can tell she tried not to overshadow her sister,she sure did! Her flawless model figure in this tightish number *lifts three finger* and the affordable brand really attracted all sights to her.




7-Karolina Kurkova in Marchesa

Um,breathtakingly gorgeous much? The supermodel was indeed one of the most jaw dropping looks of the night,that dress is something I want in my closet,it fits perfectly on her stunning body shape.



So these are the celebs who I thought took advantage of fashion's biggest night to show that they can be over the top without being too-Lady Gaga- crazy! Many summer BDL coming up,hope you enjoyed this,follow me on instagram and twitter to be notified whenever I have a new post here!
@rahaf_fashion
have a nice day or night!

Color Report

spring/summer 2014


IT'S SPRINGGGG!!!! YAY! well that took FOREVER to shake off but winter howled away and spring flew in…..(get it? as in winter wind howls and in spring butterflies fly??ok.)
Soo since spring has arrived I thought , something I could do that's useful and opens up our spring/summer spirit to da world

So together we are gonna go through all the colours I saw on the runway and in shops or are hot and WILL be in shops for this next fun , bright season of spring and summer…..


Radiant  Orchid

Of Course if you follow fashion shows you know that this is COLOUR OF THE YEAR and that it was most popular , lucky for me , my entire room is designed around the shades of purple,so thats good! Anyways , this colour is so damn gorgeous , I can't even! From everything pumps to tops , all in this colour! Just focus on the 'radiant' part , cause that's what makes it irresistible..!


Electric Blue

Electric blue is my favourite neon colour ever! Even though orchid is the COTY , this colour has appeared ALOT on runway shows , so hyper and fun! And it goes with almost every colour for this spring/summer. Electric Blue is my new black!


Salmon

 It's a more calm , mature neon orange to me…..I guess.But its a very nice change from the typical orange we go for every single year,really excited to wear this colour!

Emerald

Emerald is such a luxurious colour,I feel like it's a royalty colour , I kind of see all the important people in it at some point , Clinton , The first ladies , Beyonce….
Also it's a dark but not so dark colour that woman who prefer darker colours could wear….even to the beach… *flip dat hair B!*
                                

Ice Blue

One of my favourites , honestly I have been wearing this colour for about a week with different garments…..maybe I should do an IceBlue #OOTW! totally coming up…..
Anyways , maybe I love it because it reminds me of Frozen or something? It's a great colour on everyone…..



Illuminate yellow

This yellow is not quite neon yellow but it's definitely not a regular yellow , it's the perfect sun summer colour <3 ALL KINDS of yellow are in this year , almost ,yeah.


Orange , orange

That actually original orange colour never gets old , when you wear it and go out in the sun , you attract vitamin c to your body and its all fun and hot summer and stuff like that…….(it's just the colour of an orange , you get it)



Sand

This is a colour that I think would be perfect for business women to wear instead of black and plain beige this summer , it will also look awesome on a gorgeously tanned glowing skin , it gives that beachy vibe….(even in a business suit!)




Mint Green 

And Finally one of my favs! Mint green is HUGE and has been huge for a long time , it so chic and  , gorgeously energetic!





So these are the colours of SPRING/SUMMER 2014 , took me a long time cause I was working on other things for my blog as I wrote this long awaited post , better late than never!
Hope this was helpful , make sure you're following on the social media Twitter and Instagram

@rahaf_fashion


more posts coming up and I'm happy to announce that I'm going to be doing an OOTD everyday during summer , (which my summer vacation starts on the 23rd….long way to go…)

Kids Choice awards

Best Dressed List


This award show might not be that big of a deal for most people , but first off:
 It's a great and funny (slime part) and also the most innocent award show 

Second: As usual , fashion is a huge part of award shows and this is no exception..

It's usually hard for the stars to be dressed approprietly for this occasion , especially the older ones , but a lot of them have a great sense of style and make it work, even if it doesn't completely cover up everything!
So this is my best dressed list for the KCA's:



1- Bella Thorne


Bella looked gorgeous in a Valentino emerald green play-suite kinda outfit , her orange fiery hair goes beautifully against it. Love her , She's gorgeous!




2-Ariana Grande


 She looked so fun with that little yellow dress! She wore Aiisha Ramadan and added white pumps which complemented her radiant skin colour  and a Chanel quilted purse which she decorated with different Nickelodeon characters , unique , different and totes adobes!


3-Victoria Justice


I think she is my favourite! She walked the orange carpet in a beautiful Atelier Versace dress which went great with the background and made her look sophisticated but fun at the same time!


4-Jayma Mays


She looked awesome in this gorgeous printed dress by Timo Weiland , I love how the prints are mixed through the neckline and the belt part..and it looks incredible with her orange hair.


5-Lea Michelle

She looked pretty in pink wearing Elie Saab on the Orange carpet , she defs looked like a modern day princess in her dainty lace dress.


6-Sydney Park


She rocked the classy black and white look looking flirty and indeed stole the spotlight with her cute Timmy Woods box purse , also her hair and makeup rocked!


7-Lia Marie Johnson


She looked gorgeous as usual in that bright yellow dress , and the cutouts look awesome and make the dress and Lia more fun than they already are! Love Lia <3


8-Laura Marano


She looked so petite in that crop top and skirt combo! Classy yet ready to play , stunning hair and great personality…




These are the stars that I personally thought were the best dressed at the KCA's my Teen choice awards  BDL will possibly be the last one to go up for this year , and we will continue the rest of it with many fashion tips and tricks and all fun things!

Oscars 2014

Best Dressed


Yay!! The Oscars finally came around and they were the funniest and most amazing Oscars I have ever seen! Like ever! Ellen was HILARIOUS (as expected) ordered pizza , took a history making selfie (which i'm proud to say I was one of the first to tweet…. *clears throat*)
But as usual it's the fashion that gets most people talking…..not the BEST year….nothing made me go OH MY GOD!! Which kind of disappointing….but,there was hardly any badly dressed stars ,, I mean its the Oscars , you have to pay a lot of attention to what you wear!
Anyway,here is my BDL for the Oscars 2014


Jennifer Lawrence in Christian Dior


Who would have thought Jennifer would pick Dior??? Unpredictable you say?? I AGREE!! (For those who are reading my blog for the first time or not that often…… you should know sarcasm is my thing…) But as usual ,  she looked gorgeous , classy and that hair looks beautiful on her! the best hair goes to her for the night because I mean…. COME ON!! With the simple necklace hanging in the back as well , she definitely looked classy and modern. Plus…what a spirit when Lopita won!




Lupita Nyong'o in Prada


Of course everyone was SO excited to see what she was gonna wear , well let me tell you… she wore an Oscar! And a breathtaking dress she designed with the help of Prada , I mean no one with dark skin would have ever thought to wear such and icy shade of blue….but she sure pulled it off and I LOVE HER AND IT!!



Julia Roberts in Givenchy

Well , no one could tell she was the mother of 6 when she walked out in that dress! I mean the lace detailing and the peplum? Outstandingly Classy….. And the kind of messy hair adds to the relaxed Julia we know and love…..


Anne Hathaway in Gucci


She looked stunning in this silver and black column dress…. I'm loving the short hair everyone has been rocking lately! Looks especially good on her…. and when she presented I was kind of blinded by all the mirrors but you know , still gorgeous



Cate Blanchet in Armani Prive'

Gorgeous nude coloured dress makes Cate look angelic! Especially that she has a beautiful
body but doesn't look like a skeleton , it really brings out the shape of her body without being over the top. Classy , Glamorous 




Many more exciting outfits but these are the ones that caught my eye the most , love the Oscars and already excited for next year!
