FashionMVP Trend of the Week: Lavender

At the top of the must-have list for spring 2018 is lavender, which is basically this year’s answer to millennial pink, so prepare to see it everywhere. Ultra feminine and flattering on virtually everyone, this hue is already starting to make its mark, showing up on everything from dresses to jumpsuits to slides and beyond. So if you’re ready for a fashion refresh, add a shot of lavender or lilac into the mix for a pretty update. And get ready to watch (pastel) purple reign.

FashionNail the Shot – Tips and Tricks to Nail Your Instagram Poses

So you want to be an Instagram star? Well, so do we, so we talked with one of our very lovely models, Simone, to get some tips and tricks on posing for the perfect Insta-shot! Read on to learn how to nail your Instagram poses.

The Leg-Pop

Instagram poses

This is a pose we see over and over on the ‘gram. It’s the classic Insta-pose, probably because it’s cute and easy to pull off. It works so well because by popping one leg out, you slim and lengthen your body. It also gives you angles to show off your cute shoes! Simone recommends keeping your lips and face soft and to elongate your neck. She also told us that having your photographer–aka Insta-husband or willing friend–at a lower angle, which will help make your legs look longer and slimmer. You also want to pay attention to your hands; you want them to hang loose and natural, not stiff and awkwardly posed.

Look Back at It

Instagram poses - look back at it

We love how sassy this pose is! For this pose, Simone told us that it is important to arch your back and pull your shoulder back. This all helps to keep you looking elongated. Finding the lighting that works best for your features is an important step in nailing the shot too. She recommends playing with taking photos in different lighting to find the light that works best for you. And don’t forget about the golden hour! This is the time right before sunset when the light is softer and redder than when the sun is high in the sky. This is said to be the prettiest time to take pictures.

Find Some Movement

Instagram poses - movement

To keep your feed from looking too mundane, it’s important to find some movement in your pictures, ya know, spice it up a bit! For this pose Simone recommends walking forward on your tippy-toes–this will give you movement and elongate your legs. Don’t forget to keep your face soft! Simone also told us with movement, it’s important to just go for it! What may feel awkward in person while you’re posing might actually translate really well in the shot.

Have Fun!

Instagram poses - have fun!

The most important piece of advice we have is to have fun! Simone said it best, “Don’t be discouraged while looking at other people’s feeds! Yeah, they may have some really good shots, but it may have taken them 300 takes before they got the perfect one to post.”

So get out there and get posing! Don’t forget to tag us @lulus with #lovelulus for your chance to be featured on our feed, showing off your cute new poses!

Get the look! Simone is wearing our: Levi’s 501 Skinny Light Blue Distressed JeansZ Supply The Micro White Ribbed Tank Top, and Sole Society Matty Cream and Black Striped Slide Sandals. Shop the look and check out some of Simone’s expert poses from our site below!

FashionGraduation Dress Styles We Love!

Congratulations, graduates! You earned the cap, now let us help you find a gown! With commencement right around the corner, we decided to round up our favorite graduation dress trends of the season so you can spend more time on one last study sesh and less time wondering what to wear to the ceremony.

It’s no secret that sunny yellow has been everywhere this season! Even classic skater dresses, like our Darling Delight Yellow Skater Dress, have been brightened up with this cheerful hue. If you’re seeking a breezier shift style, the Sweet Little Lines Golden Yellow Striped Shift Dress and its classic striped pattern or the always sophisticated Perfect Time Mustard Yellow Shift Dress are perfectly appropriate!

A classic white dress never goes out of style, especially on a sunny day! Fluttery sleeves and a wrapping bodice make our Harbor Point White Wrap Dress a charming choice. If you’re looking for a more casual-cool vibe, the Groove Thing White Swing Dress and its swing bodice and breezy cutouts is equal parts comfy and cute. The Adore You White Pearl Skater Dress, with its strappy back and glamorous pearl details, is sure to be an unforgettable grad night look!

If you and your babe squad have one last G.N.O. planned, a lace bodycon midi is totally ceremony friendly but ready for wherever the after party may lead! Lavender has been giving us major heart eyes this season, so it’s no wonder we are all loving the  Magic of Love Lavender Lace Bodycon Dress. When it comes to chic details, the Divine Destiny Navy Blue Lace Midi Dress with its lace overlay and high neck pulls out all the stops. If your style is a little more showstopping, our Look at Me Wow Red Lace Two-Piece Dress is sure to wow the crowd!

The shoulder-baring look has officially made itself a style staple and this trend shows no signs of slowing down! Our Blushing Blooms Nude Floral Print Off-the-Shoulder Dress throws a fresh spin on this of-the-moment trend with its feminine floral print and long bell sleeves. For something on the sultrier side, we are absolutely adoring the Aurelia Black Off-the-Shoulder Bodycon Midi Dress. If you prefer a classic cut in a poised pink, the Season of Fun Blush Pink Off-the-Shoulder Skater Dress is sure to leave you swooning!

Celebrate your achievements in a springtime essential! The only thing that could make a lace-up skater dress better is by adding the darling floral print on our Cherished Moment Blush Pink Floral Print Lace-Up Skater Dress. From its trendy halter neckline to the breezy swing bodice, the Darling Dearest White Floral Print Swing Dress will check every box on your graduation dress checklist. Looking for a print that’s a little ditsier and daintier? We’ve got you covered with our By the Bouq Light Blue Floral Print Skater Dress!

No matter where the post-grad life may take you, these looks are the perfect way to pay tribute to your achievements and celebrate all your hard work in style. Congratulation to all the graduates! Let us know in the comments what fabulous ‘fits you’ll be wearing this spring!
