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?

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

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!

Bratz Hair Extensions 101

Hello dollz—Sasha on the scene bringing you a quick lesson on hair extensions! Hair extensions are a fun and fabulous way to add some color to your hair without long-term commitment or causing damage to your gorgeous locks. I’ve seen some pretty crazy styles out there—from feathers to glowing fiber optic strands! Celebs always rock extensions to help them go from long luscious waves on the red carpet to an exciting colorful hairstyle on stage.

There are a few different types of hair extensions. You can either get clip-on, glue-in or weaved in extensions.

Clip-on hair extensions are super easy to wear and change. You just need to hide the clip under a layer of hair. This is best for one-day use or if you just like to change up your look a lot!

Glue-in extensions can last up to a month—if done right—and you’ll need a hair stylist or friend to help.  To remove them you need to use a special oil-conditioning remover. If you are patient and gentle you can take them off without damaging your hair.

Weaved in extensions stay on longer than glue in extensions and are pretty much “threaded” into your hair on hidden rows of braids. These extensions take a while for the hair stylist to put on your hair but the results are worth it if you want the extensions in for a long time. You can wash your hair and style it anyway you want!

If you need more detail on how to put on hair extensions, surf YouTube for great How-To videos—there are some good ones out there! What do you think about hair extensions?

Catch ya later!
