The diva who flaunts 90’s fashion as it’d never gone, Madison Martina’s love for fashion and modeling started when she was a little girl. Today, she is a famed fashion and swimsuit model, influencer, and blogger.

The Orlando native, in her early 20s, might still be young but holds a plethora of modeling experiences, having collaborated with fashion giants like Chanel, Guess, and TooFaced Cosmetics. But, it does not end there, as she sits right on top when it comes to influencing aspiring models through social media.

Martina treats her Instagram family of over 211,000 followers with regular fashion updates that include recent trends and ideas inspired from the 90’s. Just last month, on August 16, the University of Central Florida alum made a fashion statement when she dropped a couple of snaps spotting Jaded London’s ‘Spacedye Knit Crop Top with Matching Sleeves.’

In an exclusive interview with Glamour Buff, Martina talks about her humble beginning, supportive parents, and everything in between, including why she believes the 90’s inspired fashion is a big trend for the fall.

Yes, everything eventually comes back and a lot of fun 90’s fashion trends are coming back– Bucket hats, forearm/hand covers, velvet and velour!

You began modeling at an early age. How did that influence your love for fashion and modeling? When did it begin?

I began modeling at the age of 12 in Orlando, FL, and it was something I really enjoyed because it gave me access to meeting new people and working with all kinds of stylish fashion trends. Getting that early start in the fashion modeling world helped lay my foundation for loving and having a true passion for fashion and modeling.

What was your first modeling stint?

My first modeling gig was for a TV show called The Daily Buzz, and I was a fashion model highlighting different clothes and outfits…I was 10 years old and have loved fashion and modeling ever since!

Any memories from that first event? We would love to know that.

I just remember being a part of a show and wearing fun, new outfits was something that brought me joy, and I knew I could see myself doing this for the long term as a career if I was granted the opportunity.

Well, dreaming about getting into the fashion world might have come easy, but how did your parents, family think about that? Were they supportive?

My mom has always been so supportive and guided me on my modeling career journey since I was a little girl. She is my world and is the most amazing person I know.

Growing up watching her manage raising myself and my five siblings is something I will always appreciate and be grateful for. My mom is my biggest inspiration and without her, I am not sure where or who I would be. I have been lucky that she has always been so loving and supportive. My mom has the biggest heart and sweetest soul and that has been a guiding force throughout my entire fashion career.

The fashion industry is quite competitive and my mom has always been there for me through the ups and downs and has encouraged me every step of the way. I believe that having a solid support system is essential to making it in this industry. Everyone on my team calls her my momager and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

You have built a solid career for yourself, with numerous fashion shows, sponsors, events, thousands of Instagram followers, and all. Are you consciously looking to inspire younger generations?

Being a role model seems like a lot of pressure as I am a human being that is constantly learning new things about myself, life and the fashion world, but if I can help provide some positive inspiration for other younger models looking to pursue this as a career, that is awesome. Hard work, passion, dedication and commitment are aspects of my fashion modeling career that I hope little girls and boys will hopefully gather from my career.

In one of your Instagram posts, we also spotted you wearing hand/forearm covers by Jaded London. Can you talk about that?

Jaded London is a great brand that I have been fortunate enough to work with and they have a lot of fun, American 90’s themed styles that are becoming trendy again. I absolutely love the matching set I wore with the hard/forearms colors and would encourage everyone to check them out online.

Do you believe the 90’s inspired fashion is a big trend for the fall?

Yes, everything eventually comes back and a lot of fun 90’s fashion trends are coming back– Bucket hats, forearm/hand covers, velvet and velour! Fashion is supposed to be fun and inspiring so I encourage everyone to partake in it!

Any suggestions for aspiring fashion models?

My biggest advice for other models entering the fashion industry is to network a bunch, never give up, have faith and strong confidence in yourself and trust the process. Listen to your gut! It won’t be easy and you will face rejection many times– It’s just a part of the business that you’re in and it’s important to acknowledge and accept that early on. I want everyone to know that just about everyone starts at the bottom and with hard work and persistence, can achieve their goals.

I also believe it’s important to have people around you that are lifting you up, encouraging you, and protecting you at all times. Building a loyal, trustworthy, and hard-working team that encompasses the same positive mindset and morals is really a big key to succeeding in the fashion and influencer arenas. I got lucky because of the support I get from my family. It can be really hard finding the right people, but just know they are out there.

Thank you for sharing your story, Martina. Your life, your story is definitely inspiring! Hope it finds the right ears and helps someone trying their hands as a model.

The Right Loungewear For Kids To Roll Around In While Opening Holiday Gifts

Sherpa is the dream when it’s cold out and you don’t want your energy bills to skyrocket!

Published

You want to stay inside when Christmas rolls around, curl up beside the fire, and enjoy the tinsel and pine tree ambiance. When your kids are opening their presents or going to sleep waiting for Santa to make his delivery, they need to be warm, comfy, and cozy.

Are you ready to find the best comfy PJs and loungewear for your kids this Christmas?

Keep reading! Here, we will show you the best loungewear your kids can enjoy all winter.

Why Do You Need Loungewear?

Before we get down to the best loungewear buys, let’s talk about why your kids need loungewear this winter! Here are some top reasons why your kids need great cozy loungewear items:

  • For those stay-inside days – your kids have those weekends and holidays when they won’t leave the house. They’ll be baking with you, taking family photos, playing on their iPads, and playing board games. For these days, they’ll need comfortable clothes to wear that will keep them warm.
  • They’re half pajamas, half clothes – you can let your kids stay comfortable all day in their loungewear, or they can use their loungewear as pajamas. They’re highly versatile clothing items, and you’ll get your money’s worth.
  • They’ll keep your kids warm – if you opt for fuzzy loungewear for your kids, they’ll stay warm all day. And you won’t need to worry as much about your energy bills (it’s going to be an expensive winter for some!)

Best Loungewear For Kids

Here are some popular types to help you decide what kind of loungewear to get for your kids this Christmas! 

Sherpa Loungewear

Sherpa is the dream when it’s cold out and you don’t want your energy bills to skyrocket! Sherpa is like wearing a blanket all day, and getting your kids some sherpa loungewear will keep them from catching a chill while they’re getting up to no good this Christmas.

Sherpa material is soft and durable and will typically last your kids until they grow out of their loungewear. You should also know that you can get wool and polyester, so you don’t need to worry about your kids getting allergies – most retail stores stock polyester sherpa, as it’s cheaper!

Jersey Loungewear

Jersey fabric is the usual choice for loungewear, as it is soft, wearable, and easy to clean. Your kids can wear their jersey loungewear during summer or winter, depending on the thickness of the fabric. Tracksuit bottoms are typically made using jersey fabric. However, you can get jersey tracksuit bottoms with sherpa lining to ensure your kids stay warm during the festive season.

Onesies 

Although your kids may not want to wear their onesies and long johns in public, they can make for cute and cozy loungewear – suitable for bedtime and daytime!

You can opt for a onesie in a sherpa fabric and get your kids’ onesies designed to look like their favorite animals. Or, you can get onesies with colorful and festive prints for Christmas!

Warm Loungewear

Warm clothes are an excellent choice for those who will have chilly houses this winter. They can wear thick and warm loungewear on their own, or your kids can wear them underneath their ski wear or clothes when leaving the house. If you live in a particularly snowy area, warm and cozy loungewear allows your kids to layer up and layer down easily for their daily adventures!

The loungewear can help them to stay comfortable while lazing around on the couch, and when they need to go out – they can simply throw on their jumpers, coats, and more.

So, you can choose thick joggers, a thick hoodie, or thick and warm cotton leggings to ensure your child is warm during the chillier season!

Summary

If you want to warm up with your little kiddos this winter, you should consider gifting them some comfortable loungewear. They can wear these loungewear options while opening their presents, baking gingerbread, and enjoying their Christmas turkey! Warm loungewear can also be your savior while energy prices are so high this winter.

How To Style A Henley Shirt In Different Seasons

You don’t have to put your Henleys in the back of your closet just because winter is coming around.

How To Style A Henley Shirt In Different Seasons
How To Style A Henley Shirt In Different Seasons

If you’re looking for a shirt that you can rely on every season of the year, you won’t go wrong with a Henley. Nowadays, the Henley is a staple in most men’s wardrobes as they are comfortable, come in many colors, and can blend in with just about any outfit.

That said, wearing a Henley in the winter is very different from wearing a Henley in the summer. And if you don’t style the Henley for the season, you may end up looking out of place. So, let’s look at how you can style a Henley for every season of the year.

That way, you’ll always wear the Henley in a way that fits the season and event you’re attending!

When Is the Best Time to Wear a Henley?

You don’t have to worry about the season when wearing a Henley. These are evergreen pieces, meaning you can wear them whether winter, spring, summer, or fall. On top of that, you can wear Henleys from brands like Fresh Clean Threads with casual and semi-formal outfits, which is why it’s a men’s fashion favorite.

Wearing a Henley Shirt During Different Seasons

The way you wear a Henley is different depending on what season it is. And to make sure you style your Henley properly regardless of the season, here’s a quick guide to styling a Henley for different times of the year.

Summer

When summer comes around, you have the perfect opportunity to wear a Henley on its own. This is a great time to pull out a light-colored, short-sleeve Henley. You can wear the Henley tucked or untucked, depending on the event. On top of that, you can choose to wear it with shorts or your favorite pair of jeans.

Remember, summer is a warm season, and you will likely move around a lot when you go out. So, we recommend pairing your Henley with a nice pair of comfortable sneakers and sunglasses to really round out the look.

Autumn

While there’s no rule against wearing light colors during autumn, earth-toned and subdued Henleys work best during this season. So, it might be time to shop for green, brown, and beige Henleys if you want to wear them during autumn. And while you can wear jeans with these colors, you can also step it up by putting on a pair of chinos.

If the temperatures start to drop, you can wear your Henley as a base layer. Then, you can put a jacket, jumper, or even a cardigan on top of the shirt. This creates a professional, classy, and timeless look that perfectly matches the season.

For this season, you can still wear sneakers with your Henley. But if you want to elevate your style, you can add some class by wearing it with a nice pair of boots!

Winter

You don’t have to put your Henleys in the back of your closet just because winter is coming around. This is one of the best times of the year to wear long-sleeve Henleys to maintain a casual look while still staying warm. 

Winter is the season of layers, and that remains true even if you wear a Henley. Just like in autumn, you can wear your Henley with a nice flannel and another jacket on top of it. But if you need to keep warmer, feel free to wear a jumper over the Henley before your jacket.

That said, when layering a Henley, it’s best to stick to a maximum of three layers. That way, you don’t end up looking too bulky.

Spring

For Spring, you can wear both bright and dark-colored Henleys. Since this season isn’t too cold or warm, you wear either short or long-sleeved options with a nice pair of jeans and chinos. You can even wear loafers with your outfit to add some more style to your wardrobe.

How to Style Bracelets To Match Your Personality

There are limitless ways to style women’s bracelets.

Published

on

There’s no doubt about it, bracelets make a statement. They can be a great way to accessorize an outfit and add a pop of color or personality. But before you start shopping for a women’s bracelet, you need to decide what style will best reflect your personality.

Bold and Full of Color

If you’re the type of person who likes to make a statement, go for bold, colorful accessories that really stand out. If you’re looking to make a statement with your jewelry, there are a few things to consider. First, think about what colors you want to wear. If you want to brighten up a monochromatic outfit, try adding a few colorful stacks in different shades.

If you’re going for a bold, colorful look, try pairing different colors and textures together. Mix and match different styles and colors to create a look that’s all your own. You’ll also want to think about the style of jewelry you want to wear. If you want something flashy and eye-catching, try a stack of colorful beaded bracelets. If you’re looking for something a little more neutral but still has a pop of color, choose something like a gold cuff with iridescent blue goldstones or even a gold cuff with multiple colored gems.

Sophisticated and Subtle

Maybe you prefer to keep it a little more subtle and you prefer to keep your jewelry a little bit more understated. This is a great way to showcase your sophistication through subtle details that are still unique to you.

Try simple bangles in neutral colors. A thin gold chain or a simple leather one can add a touch of elegance to any outfit. There are some beautiful bracelets available on Kendra Scott. Opt for a delicate chain with white crystal.

Or choose a silver adjustable chain bracelet with ivory pearl. Diamond bracelets are also great options for those who want something a little more elegant.

Unique and Eclectic

There are limitless ways to style women’s bracelets, and if you want to add a unique and eclectic edge to your look, try some of these ideas. If you have a lot of accessories, try wearing them all on one arm. This can create a fun and colorful look.

Don’t be afraid to mix and match different styles; try pairing a delicate gold chain with a bold bangle. Create a stacked look or try wearing options with a few crystals or sequins. Another fun idea for those who enjoy something unique is to choose a friendship bracelet with silver cords and match with your best friend.

As you can see, options are endless. The best way to find something that you love is to browse a few different styles and see what really speaks to you.

Trendy and Fun

If you’re known as the trend setter in your group of friends, then you likely enjoy experimenting with the latest and most popular styles. Sets are a great way to get yourself a new bracelet but also be able to experiment with styling.

For example, you can get a set of two bracelets that both feature iridescent gems. This allows you to get two bracelets for the price of one, allowing you to style it multiple different ways as you switch from one type of look to another.

No matter what your style is or what your personality is like, there’s a bracelet out there that’s perfect for you. So, go ahead and experiment until you find the perfect combination of colors and styles to reflect your personality. You may be surprised at how much fun it can be to mix and match different bracelets from Kendra Scott!
