Popular Fashion Designs From 2015

With 2015, we saw a lot of fascinating fashion designs. Today’s modern fashion has embraced comfort, style, and confidence all at once. No longer are women confined to wear only certain colors. Today’s color is more vibrant and expresses not only personal taste, but also a confidence that exudes from within.

Women of all walks of life are focusing on not only the basics, but also on a few well-chosen accessories that can lend themselves well to move from one outfit to the next. Additionally, these items are so versatile that the woman can even move from daytime office wear to evening club wear with a few simple tweaks.

Fashion has never been more fun nor as easy as it has been in 2015. From vintage clothing to modern twists, there is something for everyone out there. 2015 was the year where elegance and functionality met head on. Women demanded more versatility and focused more on practicality while still adding in a bit of whimsy and fun to their wardrobes. Vibrant colors that stood out from the crowd took a basic staple of the wardrobe to new heights without so much as a glance backward.

Here is a quick video from Neiman Marcus about their handbag and shoe designs and trends:

Top fashion designers focused on a variety of basics and styles and brought them to life with a complex merging of vintage and style. Women from all walks of life flocked to designers by the droves in an effort to keep up with the trends and make a statement at work, clubs and in all walks of life. Vibrant colors stole the show and nothing was too far fetched for most designers. Accessories tended to lead and pave the way for fashion with chunky necklaces and bracelets to the delicate versions of yesteryear. Some celebrities have even taken to using super cute umbrellas to accessorize their outfits.

From pinks to neon oranges and greens, fashion was a bold eclectic statement of what many believed to be the most exciting year ever. Additional colors were thrown in from gun metal and dove gray to nude and camel. Rich tones helped to bring it all together with cinched satin mini skirts to the ever versatile shirt dress and tank dress. A military tone was also pulled in with military styled jackets that would pave the road for even more versatility. Silk versions kept things light and easy to wear and focused on brilliant details that stood out from the crowd.

As a whole, 2015 was a year of change in the fashion industry.

My favorite SEO company website

I see TONS of websites and sometimes I’ll come across one that looks really neat. According to DailyMail, as of September 2014, more than one billion websites existed. That’s CRAZY! In the past couple years, the growth of the number of websites online has skyrocketed and continues to grow, especially with new domains available.

Given those stats, it’s not surprising that you can see TONS of websites when you are searching online. I tend to search for web design and marketing sites, and I often run into SEO companies. SEO stands for search engine optimization. Basically, those companies work to get websites ranked higher in search engines so they can get more exposure and generate more leads and business from their website. Really interesting stuff!

For more information, here’s a short video outlining and explaining SEO.

What types of SEO sites I tend to like

I tend to like sites that are more simple and basic, yet have enough content to get the point across. While I do see some super design-heavy sites I like, I tend to favor the sites with a more minimalist look and feel. Something about cleanliness and organization makes me happy.

The best sites have a clean organizational structure that allow me (and other users) to find what they need quickly and easily. On top of that, they make it easy for me to contact them if I need to. Also, they’ll have some general details about what they do and what makes them unique, some details about their process and how they help, and probably some results or proof. After all, in a performance industry, it’s always about results.

The other thing I like to see on SEO company websites is some kind of testimonials. It gives a sense of realism and community when you can see what their previous clients have said about them.

My favorite SEO site is…

I found this site doing research for a friend of mine and I found they have a Chicago division. They have a lot of content about that division and make it really easy to get more information about them. The other thing I found was some detail about their Miami division. If you need SEO help, this looks like a proven company with previous clients and proof of their services. You can see detailed case studies with results and rankings as well.

While many websites are now using themes or other template-styles, it’s nice to see them customized from the original theme they use. In this case, it definitely involved some customization of the layout, backgrounds, colors, and buttons. It’s nice to have a flare of uniqueness and originality, especially in the overly-duplicated design industry online.

If you have any inspiration or ideas for sites you like, send them to me and I’ll be happy to take a look. I’m always excited to look at new designs and examples. Plus, maybe I can even write a feature post about a new site I like – if I actually like it!

Welcome to my site!

Hey everyone, welcome to my site. My name is Julie and I love design of all kinds – web design, print design, even marketing design. I plan to talk a bit about my design ideas and provide my thoughts and reviews of other websites or designs I think are awesome. In the meantime, here’s a SUPER helpful video if you are interested in creating a website.

If you watch that video, let me know if you have any questions. I have a lot of experience with WordPress (heck, even my site here is on WP) and can help you out.

The most important thing you need to remember is to follow the basics and make it easy for your users to find their answers when they’re on your site.

That’s all for now, have a great day!
