I Took A Sneak Peek Inside NAIE’s Little Closet And So Should You

Support US female-owned small businesses
 No matter if you are a shoe lover, a jacket hoarder, or simply love to enjoy everyday styles that perfectly match pretty much all your outfits, surely there is a small indie brand ready to deliver some well-packaged goodies to your doorstep. With the rise of social media and the always effective word of mouth, we see more and more creative and talented individuals diving into the world of entrepreneurship. There is no need to continually invest in the same old industry giants, especially when there are so many lesser-known small businesses that deserve your trust and recognition.

Unfortunately, some of these female-owned small businesses cannot flourish without the help of all of you, fashion fanatics. So, in case you need yet another persuading reason to spend some cash during the holidays, consider this as your sign. I dedicated the end-of-the-month shopping list to these amazing independent brands, and so should you.

I am a huge advocate for seasonless fashion, especially during the current crises. You know, those styles you can wear all year long on their own or under your warmest coats- who can say no to layering, am I right? Look no further cause today I took a sneak peek inside "NAIE's little closet" and let me tell you, she has everything your wardrobe needs right now.

Why did I decide to dedicate one of my end-of-the-year posts to this newly founded online boutique - I hear you ask. Let me tell you that Naie Store is a breath of fresh air in an industry so obsessed with photoshop, perfectly curated backgrounds, and unrealistic expectations. She portraits her beautiful selection of everyday, casual styles in the most natural way. Think of her as the girl next door, who has a passion for fashion and all things chic and flattering. You won't have to guess how a piece of clothing is going to look up close, because you already know by looking at her all-natural product snaps.

I know that some of you are tightening the purse strings right now, it is after all the end of December but, this shopping spree won't break your bank, I promise. Even though the prices may vary from item to item, you will be able to score an always-in-style long sleeve bardot crop top for under $20 or my all-time favorite faux leather black bomber jacket for only $29.99.

Where To Buy Japanese Streetwear Within Your Budget

Where To Buy Japanese Streetwear
Streetwear culture has exploded over the last few years and we can't get enough of it. From the leading high fashion brands to small, independent creators with a strong passion for unique, out of the box designs, we surely have a lot to choose from. As much as I love wearing pieces from the industry giants, I am more intrigued by the creativity and unique ideas of emerging designers and independent brands.

On KmeetsStyle we often talk about the most inspiring, up and coming fashion brands out there. I think one of the most amazing things about being a self-proclaimed streetwear enthusiast is to bring awareness to on-the-rise talent and lend support to small brands that have a lot to offer. One thing is certain, Streetwear is not the subversive subculture it once was. No matter if you get your influence from your favorite celebrities, hip hop artists, skateboarders or simply love to feel comfy in your everyday looks, I got you covered.
Where To Buy Japanese Streetwear

Today we are touching on a whole different streetwear genre- one that I absolutely love. Japanese fashion has always influenced the industry. The demand for the perfect mix between urban style and the traditional Japanese culture is undoubtedly huge. Blame it on the beautiful illustrations, the need for self-expression, or on the eye-catchy patterns and silhouettes- the outcome is still the same. Don't think that just because I already have a Japanese style tattoo, I am biased (well, I am), take a look for yourself.

OniTakai is a new and upcoming brand with a dope aesthetic. They carry an entire streetwear collection that includes your much-needed everyday staples. From slogan tees and crop tops to winter essential hoodies, leggings, and some of the best face mask styles I have seen in a long time, it's all there for you to grab. You can also find a section dedicated to custom apparel, which is amazing if you have a ton of ideas but not the time or means to execute them yourself.

I don't know about you but personally, I would love to enhance my beach look with a Red dragon Oni swimsuit right now-even in the middle of winter. In all seriousness, Japanese inspired streetwear is a huge trend right now, one you simply cannot miss. The mainstream fashion industry is definitely a crowded one, we all feel the need to explore other options and try out something new.

2021's Top Jewelry Trends Are All About Making A Statement

2021's Top Jewelry Trends

 This is not the first time I am saying this, and it definitely won't be the last. The best 2021 jewelry trends are all about drama and attention. This year requires you to over-accessories your daily looks but, in a good way. After spending quite a great amount of time wrapped in our coziest blankets and loungewear for most of 2020, we all need to dress up a bit-even if masks are now a part of our everyday styling choices. When we do manage to go out in public, we surely want to make sure that we look and feel our best.

Easy to wear jewelry trends for winter

Don't feel sad about spending your quarantine money on 2020's jewelry must-haves a few months back, because most of these trends are rolling over into the new year. Yes, I am not ready to leave all my unworn jewelry behind either. As it seems our old-time favorite gold and silver chains never left the spotlight, and we couldn't be happier with that. Layer up, ladies!

So, is it all about chains? Heck no! Pearls are once again prominent but this time we celebrate uniqueness with every shape imaginable. Say goodbye to classic round pearls and welcome the fresh look of all the different silhouettes. They are definitely show-stoppers if you ask me. Delicate little charms and pedant necklaces are very in right now- or maybe both if you mastered the art of layering.

Are you eager to use the #armcandy once more? Luckily beads made a huge comeback this year in every color and size. From tiny, flat, and discrete to big, bold, and colorful there is definitely something for you. Don't be afraid to go with the most dramatic styles available.

This Swedish Streetwear Brand Brought Nature And Fashion Together In One Snapback Hat

 To me, the discovery of new, innovative styles is definitely something that has always drawn me to fashion. Growing up I would spend hours of the day reading magazines, only to tear up my favorite pages, turning them into a mood board- even though my parents were totally against sticking things on our freshly painted walls. Not much has changed now that I am an editor. Handmade mood boards turned into Pinterest boards and physical magazines became online, multi-topic websites-which I absolutely love.

So, why am I taking you on a trip down memory lane? Well, you need to understand how much I have always been interested in having an eye out for emerging designers. I am inspired by what's happening in the fashion world, even if I keep choosing gender-neutral streetwear styles that will definitely pass the test of time. I think one of the most amazing things about being a self-proclaimed urban fashion enthusiast is to bring awareness to on-the-rise talent and lend support to small brands that have a lot to offer. So, here I am, highlighting a fantastic brand that has me excited right now.

Custom snapback hats with unique details

Let's talk about Rawkly, the independent Swedish label that managed to bring nature and fashion together in one snapback hat for men & women. This brand takes a whole new, super fresh, and modern approach to classic snapback hats, adding earth-inspired details to an already popular fashion accessory. Aiming to appeal to the uniqueness of each individual person, the designers behind Rawkly came up with the idea of a 6-panel snapback hat with 3d embroidered logo AND the wooden brim.

Rawkly fashion

The surface of the brim is covered with wooden veneers that offer a truly unique and raw look to every design. So what's the inspiration behind the innovative idea of the wooden snapback hat? The designers wanted to highlight the beauty of the Swedish forests. Sweden is covered with more than 69% forest land so, what's a better way to showcase the beauty of nature than to incorporate it into your designs? Every tree is unique, the same applies to every brim. The Attitude fo Sweden Rawkly collection is the perfect balance between the old-time classic skater look and fresh, unique 2020 streetwear we all love to wear. 

Join the Kickstarted Campaign


At this point you might be as invested in Rawkly's vision as I am but, as most indie brands they need some help raising funds for their upcoming collections. Both the Raw Attitude and Attitude of Sweden collections will only be available during the Kickstarted project. The Upcoming Rawkly collection (based on the brand name obviously) is the main goal of the crowdfunding campaign starting on January 15, 2021. Some of their future goals include wooden temple sunglasses and (my personal favorite) the Rawky bracelet featuring leather and real wood. @rawklyfashion posts the latest updates, behind the scenes AND giveaways.
