New artists pop up almost daily. And although the discover category on Spotify is  e v e r y t h i n g  for staying on top of new music, it’s still hard to always keep up. Here I have five unforgettable artists that I’m dying to share. They cover the gammit of new hit music that will keep you groovin’ for days and nights to come.

 ALLAN KINGDOM

Allan Kyariga, better known as Allan Kingdom, is a Canadian born rapper who moved to Minnesota as a young boy. Kingdom first hit the scene when after dropping his mixtape “Trucker Music” in 2011. However, his abilities didn’t make a huge debut until appearing out of nowhere in Kanye West’s hit song “All day.” The song not only puts him on the radar but lands him a spot in City Pages as best hip hop artist of 2014. Kingdom’s sound is not only refreshing, but the best part is that he actually has something to say. The rapper’s lyrics run deep and every song holds a story. Kingdom’s most recent album drop, “Northern Lights” shows how truly talented he is. This album is the next step in showing the world that he’s not one to look past. With his unique rhythm and killer beats, Allan Kingdom is one to keep a close eye on.

DYLAN DUNLAP

Dylan Dunlap, a Los angeles based Indie rock singer, found his love for music at a young age. He grew up pursuing the industry in any and every way he could. For the past three years, Dunlap has been performing his original songs on the of streets downtown Burbank for hours at a time. Dylan first made a debut performing on season 8 of The Voice. He has gone on to open for various artists including icons like Molly Ringwald and is set to open for Phil Wickham and Howie Day. Dylan’s first major release was his single “Ella” in 2015. This release lead up to his latest album “Thoughts Become Things” which was dropped February of this year. The 20 year old singer has a passion that is almost palpable when he performs. Not to mention his distinctive tone will also have you hanging on his every last word. You’ve been fairly warned now to keep an eye out because Dylan Dunlap is taking the industry by storm.

ABRA

Abra, the Atlanta retro r&b singer, combines vintage vibes and synthesizers to create a sound unlike anything the industry has heard in quite some time. Abra has a voice that is smooth and sultry, completely enveloping you in her music. This is probably why I find myself listening to her 2015 song “Fruit” on repeat. The hit song is one of many on her album “Rose” which released June of last year. According to Billboard Magazine the album has the idea of “loss of innocence” strewn in between the lines. Abra’s latest project, “Princess”, holds similar 80’s qualities and her hit, straight from the EP, “Cry Baby” does not disappoint. Abra not only has a knack for music but one for fashion. The artist continually makes a statement in her appearance whether she is performing or filming a music video. Abra is on the verge of becoming a sensation and is an influential woman to keep an eye out for as she is already making major waves.

AURORA

Aurora, a 20 year old norwegian singer, is bringing a new creative light to music as we know it. Her songs are haunting and poetic with a dash of edge. Aurora first released her EP “Running With the Wolves” in May of 2015 which first captured the public and landed her an award at the Spelleman Awards in Norway. From the unique sound of her voice to her editorial music videos, it’s hard not obsess over Aurora. Her latest album “All My Demons Greeting Me As A Friend”  is an absolutely magnificent work of art that entraps you in a world of what seems to be make believe. This year Aurora is on the U.S. billboards top 200 and that’s only the beginning. Expect to see a lot more of this quirky, bleach blonde, lyrical genius.

RAURY

There are folk artists and rappers but what about a folk rapper? Well do I have something for you. Raury is a 20 year old alternative folk rapper from Stone Mountain, Georgia and to say he has talent is an under statement. Raury’s album “All We Need” is a testament to his unique style and distinct vision of music. If you know what is good for you, you will go and watch the music video for his single “Devils Whisper.” The piece has you entranced from beginning to end and will give you a new appreciation for alternative music. Raury continues to rise in notoriety and is working to make a big impact on the music industry. His idiosyncrasy and fearlessness when it comes to being different is exactly why he is on the road to success.

trends-20

Denim is a timeless staple in everyone’s closet. And by everyone I mean EVERYONE, Men, women, teens, young adults, even little toddlers in teeny tiny denim. What makes denims so timeless is that it come in all types of clothing. It is also so versatile you can either go sophisticated or edgy with the right denim piece. Even celebrities like Rihanna or Beyoncé rock denim on their days off; Walking busy streets and treating them like their own catwalk. Where denim came from as a necessity during blue collar work has transformed into one of the most long-running fundamentals in the fashion history.

With autumn arriving, that means school’s back in session. For this season, denim is heavily emphasized onto ’60s and ’70s style. This means we are seeing denim that ranges from classy, vintage, and a splash of bohemian, giving women a chic and mature look.

To keep you glamorous people on trend, here’s some of the top leading denim trends for this Fall/Winter season 2016/2017.

Flare Jeans

Flare jeans are back and here to stay a while. Used in both casual and professional wear, this style of jean can be used on anyone and worn anywhere. You can dress up your denim with a classy pair of wide leg jeans with heels, or for a more casual look go for a at the knee flare. Another young and hip spin on the flare jean is the kick-flare trend which shows a bit of the ankle. Even though this a slightly bold route, you can still opt to make kick flares sophisticated.

 

Two-toned Jeans

Worn by Kendall Jenner for this past summer, these two toned jeans add dimension to any outfit. Don’t be wary of this “Canadian Tuxedo” in a single pair of pants. I promise you’ll be on point while rocking these jeans. To my dedicated trendsetters, I highly recommend investing in a pair of these jeans to play with during this fall season.

 

Patchwork Denim

Another trendsetter for this season is the patchwork denim wear. Much like the two toned denim, patchwork allows a denim spin on the technique of color blocking. This array of mix-matched patterns of different denim tones provides dimension to the wearer. Through this dimension, you get to show off your fabulous personality and fun style.

Boyfriend Jeans

Just like the flares and the ever famous skinny jean, boyfriend jeans go with any outfit with more emphasis on a casual tone. (Not to mention how extremely comfortable they are too!)

 

Skinny Jeans

Last but not least, a classic denim look that is always back in season, the skinny jean. A favorite for a majority of people, skinny denim is seen, worn, and adored everywhere.

Floor length skirts are a breezy, comfortable alternative to pants during a warm spring day. Hitting just at the tops of your feet is the perfect length, especially if you want to show off some adorable sandals! To make this look even more effortlessly cool, pair the skirt with a plain tee and knot it just at the waistline. So chic!

Rompers are always in style, but especially during the spring and summer months. They scream casual chic and go with everything from strappy heels, to wedges, to flat sandals. Pick a romper with a cute design or pattern for added edge, and pair it with an oversized tote like this one to balance the short hemline.

Fun, colorful pants become work appropriate when paired with neutral, structured elements like this chic blazer and nude shoes. Keep the pants professional by tucking in your top and ensuring that they’re well tailored – hitting just at the ankle is the perfect length. Pushing up the sleeves adds a cool edge to an already trendy look.

Bring spring into your office with a full, floral skirt like this beauty. It’s simple, sweet, and perfect for work. Keep the colors neutral for a sleek look and to allow the pretty pattern of the skirt to be the star of the show. With a full skirt like this, knee-length or midi length is the most flattering.

4dff115dffb25fcae9bc2d69906a7e28Black and white doesn’t have to be boring! Pair high-waisted pants with a geometric shirt for a fun, but work appropriate outfit. I love the pattern of this top; alternating stripes add trendiness and edginess while staying neutral enough for a more conservative work environment. This would also work with wide-legged pants!

When you want to look amazing but simply don’t have the time or energy to create a special outfit, use this as a guide! Throwing on a pair of booties, jeans, and tucking in a patterned shirt will immediately look stylish and put together. When I lived in Paris, I noticed that all the women cuffed their jeans over their booties. It not only makes your legs look better, but it adds a unique touch to your outfit.

All white always looks both classic and sexy, especially in a baby doll dress. Keep the style simple to allow the color and the chicness of the heels and dress speak for themselves. Take the outfit up a notch with a sleek leather jacket! It will toughen up the dress and make you look super cool, whether you’re out for drinks or just strolling through the shops. If you’re craving color, add an accessory like a necklace or belt or a colored leather jacket.

Neon done right! An adorably simple dress in a bright color like neon pink will make you stand out no matter where you go this weekend. To keep the boldness in check, pair the dress with a darker purse, like this blue clutch, and nude heels. The neon color will make you appear tanner and will ensure that you turn heads! If neon is too crazy for you, try a dress in a jewel tone like emerald green or sapphire blue.
