  • TeenNick Top 10 Styling Tips With Mary Kate Steinmiller

    Posted on 08/02/2013 by Rachel1016

    This week, TeenNick Top 10 and Macy's bring you the ultimate fusion of music and fashion. As a part of the TeenNick Top 10 Back To School special, we caught up with Teen Vogue's Senior Fashion Market Editor and resident trend-setter, Mary Kate Steinmiller, who teamed up with Macy's to bring us ten fabulous back to school trends! Check out all of the looks here


    TREND #1: GIRLS -- NEON
    Neon is great for adding a pop of bright color to your outfit, but you mentioned that it's also a good idea to offset the brightness with more muted pieces. How do you know you've found the right balance?
    Pick one statement neon piece, whether it be a top, jacket, jeans or an accessory and keep it at that. Neon works best in small doses and balanced with neutrals.

    TREND #2: GUYS -- CAMOUFLAGE
    For a look that is supposed to blend in, camouflage is great for making a statement. What are some accessories that complement this bold pattern?  
    Take the colors of classic camo and carry them out into your accessories. A solid army green baseball hat and tan colored worker boots make it cool.

    TREND #3: GIRLS & GUYS -- PATTERNED TOPS
    We see a lot of guys wearing patterned t-shirts, hoodies, and sneakers.  What tips would give a girl who wants to rock the trend?
    "Borrowed from the boys" is one of the greatest fashion "tricks." The key is picking your masculine item and keeping the rest of your look feminine. Colored sneakers look great with a floppy mini skirt and classic tee; a printed hoodie or tee looks cool with a colored skinny jean.

    TREND #4: GIRLS -- MOTORCYCLE JACKET
    A motorcycle jacket is a staple for any biker-chic look. How would you pair a leather jacket during the early fall months when temperatures are still high?
    A moto jacket is seasonless. I wear mine over a summer sundress when nights get cool, or I layer a faux fur vest under it in the cooler months. It's versatile, think of it as a layering piece, not just a jacket. I also love the look of a hoodie under a biker jacket. 

    TREND #5: GUYS -- DENIM/CHAMBRAY
    Chambray has been everywhere recently. What are your thoughts on wearing chambray with jeans?
    Denim on denim looks laid back cool when done right. Just remember not to match your denims perfectly. There should be a little hint of shade difference if you are wearing denim on the top and bottom, and if not the denim should be patchwork or embellished so you are not head to toe flat denim. I love a chambray shirt with white jeans.

    TREND #6: GIRLS -- GRUNGE 
    Grunge is a trend that comes straight from the 90s. Sartorially, do you think the 90s are here to stay?
    The exact grunge of the 90s stayed in the 90s, but the best elements of it may be here to stay. A worn-in plaid flannel, classic black combat boots and ripped up denim often return on the trend radar, especially this fall.

    TREND #7: GUYS & GIRLS -- PLAID FLANNELS 
    Plaid flannel shirts are a must-have for guys, but how else can guys (or girls) work plaid into their overall look?
    For girls I love a plaid flannel shirt over a floral baby doll dress and boys look cool in ripped worn in jeans and a classic white undershirt tee.

    TREND #8: GIRLS -- GREAT ROMANCE
    Great Romance is such a whimsical, delicate look. Could this trend be inspired by any historical eras or specific places around the world?
    Great romance has a bit of a fashion fairy tale but nothing too perfect or pristine. More like a princess who has run away. A beautiful dress, but worn with a dreamy oversize knit sweater and a beanie hat to make it look a bit tattered.

    TREND #9: GUYS -- AMERICAN FLAG
    Contrary to popular belief, stars and striped aren't just for the 4th of July! What would you say to someone who's never rocked the patriotic look as a fall trend before?
    Take it in small doses, showing your patriotism can mean star print denim or just a red and white stripe tee. As long as you are not head to toe Americana, a piece of patriotism works in any outfit.

    TREND #10: GIRLS -- SKIRTS
    Skirts come in all different lengths, shapes, and silhouettes. What is the go-to skirt style this fall?
    The two must haves for fall hit both sides of the spectrum. For the girl embracing her inner grunge, it's a long and languid maxi skirt, preferably in a floral. For the girl who wants to show some leg, it's a short and sporty floppy mini skirt. Both can be worn with another must-have for the season, a crew neck sweatshirt. With the long gypsy skirt it's best to keep it oversize, and for the mini, wear it with a cool color-block crew neck that has a tinier fit.

  • Degrassi Wrap-Up: 'All I Wanna Do'

    Posted on 07/19/2013 by Rachel1016

    "Paris, Maya. We are in Paris." This week, the jet-setting half of the gang took on their first day in The City of Light, while the homebound Degrassians visited a cancer-fighting, wig-rocking Clare at the hospital. The kids managed to keep some of the premiere drama at bay, but the plot is nonetheless starting to thicken in every direction! As always, if you haven't seen the episode, watch it here, because we've got spoilers! And let's be real, no one likes a spoiled child.



    NOBODY'S FOOL
    Tristan arrived in Paris loaded with his inimitable style and zingy one-liners (my new life motto might be "Find an amazing blazer, and then love"). But despite readying himself to relish in cappuccinos and charcuterie (that's *ahem* French for "cheese plate"), Tristan revealed a major insecurity about Miles finding out he's gay. He even went so far as to enlist Maya into pretending they were dating. But unsurprisingly, he almost gagged when they kissed, and Trist swiftly realized he wasn't fooling a soul.

    But here's what I didn't see coming: Miles approached Tristan about the whole situation, and reassured him that he didn't care. I mean, all previous concert/whiskey/pool hi-jinks aside, can we trust that Miles is being genuine and honest? Also, considering the fact that Tristan made eyes at Miles once (or maybe twice...), could Miles be the "he" to whom Tristan refers in his selfie confessional? Is there potential for Trist to take part in a, well, tryst? What does this mean for the potential Miles/Maya/Zoe love triangle? Am I brain dumping? Oh, Degrassi, you have your work cut out for you!



    BAGUETTE OR A BOY
    Armed with big plans of her own, Alli kicked off her Parisan journey by venturing off into the city solo. Wishing Clare was with her IRL, she toted around an amazing cardboard face kabob of her BFF presumably (obviously) to make sure Clare wasn't missing in any Instagram pictures. Alli quickly found herself doing less touring and more, erm, troubleshooting, though, as the language barrier, a broken heel, and a mugging attempt got the best of her. But then, a cute Parisian boy came to her rescue. Naturally! He saved her phone, he showed her the ways of the city, he fixed her cup of coffee (okay, adding sugar isn't that ground-breaking), and, oh, right, he was really CAYUTE. Guys, even though Alli got off to a rough start, she's already half-fulfilled every girl's Parisian dream. Thinks are looking up, am I right? Am I right.



    BRACING FOR CHANGES
    Clare and Eli started to navigate the changing circumstances of their relationship this episode. Clare's experience with cancer became more real with every moment, from the mundane triggers like watching Zoe on a stretcher in an episode of "West Drive," to courageously shaving her head, to insecurities about what Eli might think of the physical changes her body will start to go through. There was no sugar coating here, but Clare is doing her darndest to wade through it all. And despite that other patient's warning about fleeting boyfriends, Eli has been a dream, don't you think? Plus, Clare looked smokin' in that blonde wig and Eli seems to be all about it. Uh huh, honey!

    Phew, that's enough from me. What did you all think of this episode? Sound off in the comments!

  • Degrassi Wrap-Up: 'Summertime'

    Posted on 07/12/2013 by Rachel1016

    Degrassi fans, Season 13 is officially underway! It seems like just yesterday (and really, it wasn't that long ago) we were biting our nails over Fimogen's fate, assessing the strength of Jake and Mo's bromance, and generally crying our water weight in tears as Degrassi's class of 2013 said their goodbyes. BUT, it's a whole new Degrassi indeed, and between new characters, budding romances and feuds, and classic Degrassi drama, last night's premiere gave us ALL of the feels. If you haven't seen the episode yet, watch it 
    here first, because there are spoilers worse than a three-day old sandwich below! 



    Bon Voyage? Not So Fast.
    Maya's big summer plans to travel to Paris were put in major jeopardy this episode. Pretty much everything Maya touched turned to disaster when she started spending time with new-guy and TOTAL bad-boy Miles Hollingsworth III (yes, it is essential we refer to him by full name always). First there was the power outage at the concert, then her ROYALLY blown curfew, then that whole underage drinking thing� Even if we can spot the romantic tension from a mile away (or should we say 'Miles'), after being dangerously close to getting her Paris plans dashed, can Maya afford any more fiascos? 

    Also, Tristan deserved a total rude ticket for ditching Maya at the concert to be with Zoe. I'm wondering though, could this potential Zoe v. Maya feud be a bigger problem? Zoe definitely has her eyes on Miles too, and we ALL know Zoe and Maya haven't, well, clicked. Will Maya's bestie status with Tristan survive their trip to Paris? Will this potential feud with Zoe get bigger? Does Maya + Miles = Mayales? Pronounced Miles? Hm, we'll have to think about that one.





    No Good Time For Bad News.
    What began as Clare's slightly awkward attempt to keep her long-distance romance with Eli alive (*covers eyes in embarrassment at the thought of video chat sex*), quickly became a life-changing episode for her. My heart sank like a thousand blundering Titanics when Clare found out she was diagnosed with cancer. And even though she broke down after the news sunk in, I couldn't believe how composed she was throughout. :`) Can you even begin to imagine what it would be like to embark on what could be the fight of your life? I'm pretty sure she's going to kick cancer's batootie with the grace of a swan, though. Plus, when Eli showed up at the hospital even after Clare told him not to, it was a moment that rivaled all Eclare moments. I was totally verklempt! It might even beat the horse and carriage scene from "Time of My Life." What do you all think?




    Rock Solid Or Rocking The Boat?
    Over at Degrassi Summer Camp, Adam is trying to deal with the fact that Becky will be gone for the summer, and they're both trying to keep their jealousy at bay. It seemed a bit severe for Becky to insist that Adam not be friends with Imogen, even if she was maybe flirting a little. But Adam and Imogen were acting like children in the name-game circle. Which was full of actual children. I mean, DREW of all people had to come in and mediate! Thankfully, Imogen explained that she just has a hard time making friends, and coming off of a relationship with Fiona, I can understand why she might be in an adjustment phase, but OOF: You know there's something wrong when you make Drew look responsible. I'm also a little unsure how well their "secret friends" deal is going to turn out. It seems a little too sneaky to be a good solution. 

    Enough from me, what did you think of the Season 13 premiere? Sound off in the comments!
