Interview with Jasmin Larian

Jasmin Larian talks about Bratz and her personal passion for fashion.

Hey Bratzies! We sat down with Jasmin Larian, designer and daughter of Bratz founder Isaac Larian, and asked her some of your fashion questions! Check out her answers below to find out more about her fashion inspirations!

Have you ever made any fashion mistakes? (From Kabillion Girls Rule)

I wouldn’t call any fashion faux pas mistakes…But I experimented with cornrows ala Bo Derek in high school. I loved them, my mom didn’t.  It was low maintenance and looked amazing to me at the time.

How would you describe your personal fashion passion? Are you as earthy as your doll Yasmin? (From Alex B.)

I am as earthy as Yasmin the doll! I love floral dresses and fringe, but as I’ve grown older my style has merged into a more bohemian sophisticated chic look — but most of the time no matter what I’m wearing you’ll see me with a flower crown!

If you could pick one of the Bratz girls to be for one day, which one would you be and why? (From Selena A.)

Other than Yasmin?! I would be Jade because I think her style is so rad and funky.  She can pull off looks that only stylists dream of.

Do you influence any of the doll designs now that you’re older?  (From Angeline B.)

Yes! I run my own line of accessories called CULT GAIA, but am still very much involved in the design process for the dolls. It’s my first passion!

Guest Post: Bratz Boyz Trends

Hey Bratzies! Super-fan Alex B here with some trendy tips for the boyz. If you know a guy with a passion for fashion who’s lookin’ to stay stylish this spring, you’re in luck ‘cuz I’ve got this season’s hottest trends for boyz to keep them fresh and fashionable!

NEON COLORS
One of this spring’s biggest trends for boys are neon colors. A touch of color adds major spark to any outfit! Pair plain skinny jeans with a bright graphic T and matching sneakers for a casual look that pops! If you’re a fan of colorful skinnies, go bold with the reverse look, using a black or white graphic T instead! Go-to colors that stand out on anyone are lime green, acid yellow, and electric blue. Neon colors aren’t just for clothes though! If your style is more toned down, adding a bright belt, colorful shades, or a rockin’ wristband will give your look electric accents that bring out the hue in you!

There are so many ways to rock neon colors! Step out in sizzling hues to make a spark in the streets, and at school!

WILD PRINTS
Also trending for guys are wild prints. Bold patterns are great for makin’ statements and stayin’ stylish! Most black & white patterns compliment neon colors nicely too, and many pieces are available in bright, colorful prints! For a laid-back look, try a printed T with jeans or shorts. For a sharper look, wear a patterned button-down instead! Everyone can pull off prints, but if you’re not totally convinced, start with basic geometrics. Be sure to avoid clashing too many patterns in one outfit too. It could mean the difference between looking your best, and looking a mess!

Peep these prints! Plaid, stripes, camo, and a funky floral too!

VINTAGE REVIVAL
Vintage-inspired looks are huge this spring too. Retro accessories are coming back big-time! Thick-rimmed glasses are awesome because they work with everything, and come in a variety of colors! Bowties are also great retro accessories because they too come in many colors and patterns, and look great with button-down shirts! Also making a comeback are suspenders. Suspenders are a cool way to add quirky style to any outfit, and also come in tons of colors! Retro accessories give your wardrobe a touch of timelessness, but don’t over-do it! Wear one at a time to give your outfits a vintage twist without looking obsolete ;)

Awesome eyewear makes the perfect accessory for any outfit!

Well dudes, that’s all for now. Stay stylin’!

Shoes! Shoes! Shoes!

Hey Lovelies – Cloe here! Want to know a secret? Some mornings I have fashion crises, too!  This morning I woke up and I couldn’t find a thing to wear in my closet FULL of clothes – nothing seemed to look right! Don’t you hate it when that happens? So I decided to first pick a pair of stylin’ shoes and then build my outfit around them. Pretty shoes somehow always make me feel better! Anyway, I slipped on my newest, and most rockin’, pair of heels and suddenly I felt like everything I wore looked super chic and glamorous. Check them out, aren’t they just fab?!?

This got me thinking, shoes are a very important essential in every girl’s closet so I’m going to share with you this spring/summer’s hottest shoe trends – with these five pairs you’re set for summer!

  • Ballet Flats are super cute and comfortable to wear out during the day when you’re having lunch with friends, shopping at the mall or running errands.
  • Fun and easy to wear tennis shoes in cool colors and designs are totally in this season. If you’re going to be doing a lot of walking these are definitely the shoes to choose.
  • Chunky espadrilles are a classic spring shoe. Wear them with a pretty floral sundress for a perfect match.
  • Bejeweled gladiator sandals are a great alternative for the average pair of flip-flops. They’re just as easy to wear but they come in super stylin’ varieties that you can dress up or down – and show off your latest pedicure!
  • Going out for a fancy occasion? Wear dark denim and pick up a pair of vampy heels to add a little glam but still keep a chic casual feel to your outfit.

What does your favorite pair of springtime shoes look like?

Prom Fashion Trends

It’s officially prom season, Bratzies! You know I’m all about trend setting and making a fashion statement, so this year I’m kicking it up to a whole new level with my light up dress! What better way to standout in a crowd than to light up the room, right?!

But just because I’ve got my look all picked out, doesn’t mean I haven’t been keeping my

Bratz Funk n Glow Jade

eye on the upcoming prom trends for you lovelies. Here are the top three fashion statements to look forward to this prom season:

Short feathered skirts are totally hot right now. Dresses with feathers look fun, fashionable and fierce!

Sequins! You can never have too much glitz! Just remember to keep the accessories to a minimum when wearing a fully blinged out dress.

Having trouble deciding on a short dress or long dress? The high-low hemline is so in right now! Show some leg in the front and keep it long and glam in the back. Some high-low hemline dresses even come with a fun pattern on the inside!

Tell me all about your prom fashion picks!

Luv,

How to Wear Statement Jewelry

Hey Bratzies! Want to know what’s better than jewelry? Bigger, bolder, look-at-me jewelry! My newest obsession is the statement necklace. Chunky jewels are fabulous if you’re lookin’ to get noticed… and they’re great for adding some sparkle to any outfit, even a simple t-shirt and jeans! There is only one trick to rockin’ this look and that’s to not overdo it! For example, if you’re already sporting a super sparkly statement necklace then make sure to go easy on the earrings. They may be fabulous but you don’t want to get lost in a sea of jewels. Remember the jewels are the accessories, not you!

A turquoise and blue statement necklace pops against bright coral!

If chunky necklaces aren’t your thing, try wearing earrings to add a little sparkle around your eyes. Try colorful floral studs for a pop of color — match the color of your earrings to your eyes for extra impact — or hang a pair of bejeweled teardrop earrings for a fierce new look! If you’re wearing a statement necklace then pair it with a pair of simple rhinestone studs to add just the right amount of extra sparkle around your face.

Orange teardrop earrings add a pop of color around your face!

Last but not least is a big, beautiful ring! Flowers and bows are very trendy right now – my favorite is the beautiful turquoise flower ring below that makes any outfit go from ordinary to super extraordinary! You really can wear these chunky rings with any outfit. But remember, only wear one bulky ring at a time – if you want to wear more than one ring then pair your big rings with simple bands. And if you are wearing multiple rings on one hand, avoid wearing statement bracelets and watches on the same hand.

Big turquoise flower ring makes a big statement!

Luv ya!
