Hey all you Fashion Fanatics out there! This week I have decided to write about some clothing that I have noticed a lot of people wearing lately. Maybe you have noticed people wearing them too, and maybe you haven't. Either way, I hope you possibly consider buying some of these things for yourself, and I hope you enjoy my article!

The first thing I have seen a lot of people wearing lately is bermuda shorts! Bermuda shorts are shorts that come down just above your knee. I have a pair of them myself and personally prefer them over short shorts (though I have a few pairs of those too). You can find bermuda shorts pretty much anywhere. I got mine at Aeropostale for about 25 dollars, but I have also seen them at Old Navy, American Eagle, Forever 21, Urban Outfitters, Bebe, and Abercrombie. Since it is getting cooler, you might not want to wear shorts. If you find a pair of shorts you like before it is warm enough to wear them, buy them a little big so that you will be able to fit them next spring (or next time it is warm).

Another thing I have seen a lot of people wearing are gauchos. Gauchos are skirt looking capris. How can they look like a skirt too you ask? Well, they are very wide legged and flowy. These are very dressy looking so you may want to wear them formally. They come in many different colors, and I myself have a pair of brown gauchos from The Body Shop (not the cosmetic store) at my local mall. You can also find them at Old Navy, American Eagle, BeBe, and Urban Outfitters.

I've also seen a lot of people wearing leggings. Have you ever wanted to wear a short skirt or dress, but didn't want to expose your legs so much? Well, you can do just that with leggings. Leggings are kind of like footless stockings or tights. They come in different colors and designs, and some even have lace at the bottom. Unfortunately, I don't have any leggings of my own, but I do plan on getting some one day soon. You can find leggings at Claire's, American Eagle, Abercrombie, Hollister, Urban Outfitters, and Forever 21.

The fourth thing I am going to tell you about are these big belts I've seen people wearing. These belts are far too big to fit through any belt loops so what are they for? Have you ever seen those very long shirts that people wear (which is another thing I see a lot of people wearing and can be found at Hollister and American Eagle)? Well, they wear these huge belts over the long shirts right where you would usually find belt loops. I think this looks great and have never done it. In fact, I don't even own any huge belts, but regular sized belts would still look cool over a very long shirt. You can find nice belts at Aeropostale, American Eagle, Abercrombie, Buckle, Hollister, Gap, Old Navy, Forever 21, and Urban Outfitters.

The fifth and final thing I am going to tell you about is v-necks. I have many v-necks from lots of places and have seen several people wearing them. I love them so much because you get to wear more than one shirt in just one outfit. You can be wearing a plain and solid v-neck, but by wearing a nice lacy or different colored top (such as a small t-shirt or a cami) under your v-neck, your top will look fabulous. You can do the same with polo shirts that come down low (which can be found at Aeropostale, American Eagle, Abercrombie, and Hollister). You can find v-necks and camis or undershirts pretty much everywhere, but I find that American Eagle and Aeropostale have really nice camis. You can find great v-necks at American Eagle, Hollister, and Aeropostale.

Out of all of the different trends that have come and gone, I think these are some of the coolest. That is why I have written about them. Please realize that you can find these things at stores other than the ones I have listed. If I listed every store, it would take forever. I listed these because I am more familiar with them and know that they have nice clothes, but there are, of course, other stores that I'm sure have equally nice clothes or better. I hope you have enjoyed my article! By the way, I am running short on ideas. Please ymail me with your ideas on what I should write about. If I end up using your idea, I will probably pay you in some way! Thanks! I'm off to study for exams. Bleh.
