Chic at Coachella

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

The fashion rules at Coachella music festival are as follows: ANYTHING GOES!

What began as a chill, down to earth opportunity for ordinary people and celebrities to share a common ground and kick back, relax and enjoy a wide variety of musical entertainment, has slowly morphed into one of the biggest fashion events of the year. Designers fight to dress celebs for the festival (which falls over two weekends in April in Indio, California) and the trendy ladies attending are planning their Coachella wardrobes well in advance. It’s no longer about comfort and relaxation as it is about looking your absolute best, while still trying to pull off a hippie, flower child, one-with-the-earth vibe.

Over the years, certain trends have emerged as staples at the California festival. Anyone looking to fit in at the event will embrace one of the following Coachella clichés: tie dye, fringe (on anything and everything), a flower crown, crop top, cut off denim shorts and distressed band tees. Different forms of head gear were also prominent, including the obvious flower crown, to feathers, jeweled headbands, big floppy hats, fedoras, and even Native-American inspired headdresses. Photos taken at the event show increasingly experimental looks year by year, some of the more daring attendees opting for a full-on costume. One performer even donned a sheer mesh bodysuit with only pasties underneath. (Hey, I said anything goes…) A particularly popular statement emerging, seen all over Coachella, is the bindi (a jewel or series of jewels placed in the middle of the forehead), along with more elaborate facial gems. Those looking to stick with the simple boho-chic vibe might rock a flowing, printed maxi dress, a tie dye maxi skirt or palazzo pants with a fringed crop top. It’s all about self-expression, and any fearless fashionista will take these common looks and try to make it her own.

Daisy Crazy!

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

Spring has sprung! (Well, more so in Kelowna than in Saskatoon, but we haven’t lost hope yet!)

With a new season comes new trends, and at Frakas it’s all coming up daisies! Our buyers first noticed this common theme when on a spring buying trip in Las Vegas… it seemed this classic bloom was the flower of choice among the fashionistas. From daisy headbands to printed dresses, there is no escaping (not that we want to)! We are seeing daisies on jewelry, incorporated into lace patterns and printed on shorts, crop tops and sweaters. For the more timid lady, a simple and understated pair of daisy earrings would be just the right accessory to add to her spring wardrobe. Feeling brazen and not afraid to make a statement with your ensemble? Rock that lacy daisy crop with your daisy print maxi skirt and top it off with a flower crown to tell the world “hey! I’m ready to go frolicking through a meadow and I don’t care who knows it!” This is officially the season to embrace your inner flower child and we at Frakas are feeling the peace & love.

Who likes short shorts?

Friday, July 12th, 2013

Summer is in full swing and in the fashion world, that means it’s time to show a little skin and I am going to start from the bottom up! Shorts are an essential piece to your spring/summer wardrobe. There are so many options to choose from, but I’m going to show you just a few of my top picks! Lush Bold Aztec Shorts $59 There is no limit on how wild and fun your shorts can be! Take a step on the wild side, and embrace a crazy patterned short! If you want to be extra daring, pair it with  an equally daring printed top, or stay on the safe side and pair it with a neutral or a solid basic tee. Mink Pink Mint Studded Shorts $98 Black Sheep Crochet Detail Denim Shorts $72 Denim shorts are always a good piece to have. You can find denim shorts pretty much anywhere right now, but a pair with a feminine or edgy detail pushes the style rating over the top!
