Step Your Wardrobe Game Up In 2018 With These Dope Trends

Resolutions are now a thing of the past. Now, it’s all about setting goals for the new year. So why not begin with some dope outfits for 2018? While it may sometimes be difficult to step outside your (fashion) comfort zone, but I definitely encourage you to switch up your wardrobe by trying a new trend (or a few…) this year.

1. Get inspired by the ’90s — From logomania to the return of fanny pack, ’90s-inspired fashion is definitely having a moment for 2018. Wear your favorite designer’s name on your sleeve (or everywhere for that matter) this year, and consider swapping your crossbody bag for a belt bag (a.k.a. fanny pack.)

2. Get a suit — Whether you work in a corporate environment that requires you to dress up each day or not, this year is the perfect time to buy a suit. A number of designers also sent chic suits down the runway for Spring 2018.

3. Go sheer — While you may normally think of lingerie when you think of transparent clothing, designers have incorporated the fabric into ready-to-wear for this year. When worn with the right amount of coverage underneath or on top, you can try everything from sheer blouses to mesh skirts this year.

Yaya DaCosta Calls Out ‘ANTM’ On Its Problems In The Past With Blackness

America’s Next Top Model should probably thank the heavens that Twitter wasn’t around when it started in 2003.

On Saturday, actress Yaya DaCosta shared videos on Instagram after viewers of Love & Hip Hop Miami sent her clips from the show. Musician, Amara La Negra has been struggling to get her message across. In the episode, the singer is criticised for her big afro and black pride

DaCosta had a similar incident on season three of America’s Next Top Model when she proudly wore her hair natural and dressed in an Ankara-print top.

“Every once in a while (more and more often these days), we are reminded of how far we still have to go surrounding issues of tolerance and ethnic sensitivity,” DaCosta said in her Instagram post acknowledging her time on the Tyra Banks’ produced competition show.

Every once in a while (more and more often these days), we are reminded of how far we still have to go surrounding issues of tolerance and ethnic sensitivity. . Trump’s latest comments about immigrants are a fresh example of that, but it is NOTHING NEW. He’s been expressing bigotry and protecting other racists since day one. . Same hate, new day… . I know that this might seem trivial next to the serious threat our country is currently facing, but people keep sending me videos of Love & HipHop Miami, saying that it reminded them of me as a young girl, learning to navigate the new phenomenon of reality TV. . Unfortunately, 14 years later, nothing has changed. . Same ignorance, new show… . It took a lot of work to heal from that experience, and looking back, I feel so much for that eager, vulnerable young version of myself. There are so many things I would whisper in her ear… . @amaralanegraaln I truly applaud your strength. As another brown-skinned, curly-headed woman with African roots and Latin branches, I stand with you. . Yes, we are all human, but the myth that we live in a post-racial society is a falsehood and, frankly, a dangerous state of denial. . May all little girls and boys everywhere feel safe and may they trust that their experiences are valid. . May we celebrate humankind’s diversity and hold one another up as worthy and deserving of respect. . #Respeito . (p.s. I think Viola Davis looked pretty damn glamorous and elegant at the Golden Globes… in her ‘fro! 😜✊🏽)

We all know nothing about DaCosta and Amara’s stories are new. But in a new world of social media putting peoples’ face in their shit, maybe some people will think before making ignorant remarks about black pride.

Kelis Selling LA Mansion And Buying A Farm To “Grow Everything She Eats”

You can always count on Kelis (My WCE) to be a trendsetter, whether its in hair, fashion, food, and now, farming.

The 38-year-old mother of two announced in Architectural Digest that she is selling her 1920s home in Glendale to buy a farm. She’s doing this in the hopes of taking part in sustainable agriculture and having better control of what her family, son Knight (8) and Shepherd(2), with husband and real estate agent Mike Mora, consume.

“Now that I’ve got these two boys, I want to control a little bit more how we eat,” she said. “We’re buying a farm, so that’s why we’re moving: so that we can grow everything and sustain everything that way.”

 The star has put her mansion on the market for $1.885 million. It’s 3,850 square feet and features five bedrooms, two fireplaces, a heated saltwater pool and, of course, a gorgeous kitchen broken in by the singer and Le Cordon Bleu-educated chef. She released a cookbook called My Life on a Plate in 2015 and has a line of sauces called Bounty & Full.

“We smoke meat, so we have a BBQ smoker,” she said. “We can do great grilled vegetables and steaks and sit outside with a glass of wine. It’s so nice.”

This desire to bring the healthiest of foods to the table through farming grew from a love of cooking. It developed during childhood but became a passion while she was studying at Le Corden Bleu in Paris.

“It was life changing,” she told Esquire in 2014. “Not because I learned to cook there, but because I was able to focus on something new. I was able to realize that I make music because I love it, not because I have to, and that there are other things that I do just as well, if not better, that bring me as much passion and joy and satisfaction.”
