Every summer, there’s one piece of accessory that sets our hearts aflutter. When we met Rumba Time’s SoHo Denim Watch, we thought it couldn’t get any better. Affordable and chic, it was destined to be our go-to watch of the summer. Well, it looks like this season is one that just keeps giving.

Our latest obsession is the “Cat Eyes” sunglasses from the brand Goêt and we’re officially nicknaming this piece the “Silver Fox”. Effortlessly melding a retro look (gorgeous cat-eye shape that was famous in the 50s & 60s) with a modern sensibility, this piece fits seamlessly in every fashionista’s chic closet. From dressing it down with a distressed denim jacket to glamming it up with an all white look paired with bright red lips, the possibilities are endless.

Lights, camera, red carpet : The best of Cannes 2015

Lupita Nyong'o worked the crowds and apparently mother nature in a gorgeous jade Gucci chiffon gown.

The way we decide that summer is officially here is when Hollywood descends on the sleepy little town of Cannes located in the gorgeous French Riviera. Gigantic movie posters go up and so does the red carpet. By the time the stars hit the famous festival steps at the Palais des festivals et des congrès de Cannes, it is officially show time.

Charlize Theron looked every inch the movie star and statuesque blond in canary yellow Dior.

This year, Boulevard de la Croisette hosted many familiar faces including the always gorgeous and elegant Cate Blanchett, Charlize Theron, Julianne Moore and Salma Hayek as well as newer faces like Lupita Nyong’o, Rooney Mara and Zoe Kravitz.

From photo calls to the actual film premieres, we’ve put together a list of our favorite looks from this year’s festival for your viewing pleasure. Share your thoughts on your top fashion moments below.

2015 Met Gala: Who was on trend and on point on fashion’s biggest night?

Fashion’s biggest night arrived to much fanfare again this evening. Stars from the music, fashion, television and movie realms fetted New York’s famous  Metropolitan Museum of Art.  The theme for this year? “China: Through the Looking Glass.” Every year, many stars adhere to the rules while others eschew them completely. This year was no different. Our thoughts on the topic are “why show up to a costume party dressed as yourself?” It’s no fun at all!

It's all in the details. Rihanna is on point and on trend.

That being said, we’re focusing on the most interesting, intriguing and fun looks from tonight’s gala. These gals not only came to have fun but they were right on trend. Here are their interesting takes on how Chinese aesthetics have influenced western fashion.

RumbaTime’s SoHo Denim Watch – The must-have accessory for spring

Every season, there’s that one item that catches the fashion lover’s eye –that one staple that you’re convinced you’ll be wearing over and over again until the poor thing falls apart. This season, that honor goes to the uber chic and fashionable RumbaTime SoHo Denim watch. Like its predecessors, this elegant number is named after the New York City locale that inspired its design.

The SoHo Denim Watch is perfect when paired with a bold print. Above, it perfectly accessorizes an H&M retro v-neck dress and wool hat.

Denim is huge this season, which makes the launch of the SoHo perfect for stylish trendsetters around the globe. Depending on your style and mood, you can go retro in the light wash color, modern in the indigo color or showstop in red. Each color can be easily styled for a casual day out or sexy night out.

Spring and summer are the perfect times to go bold in gorgeous color. The SoHo adds some extra sizzle to this lightweight tangerine sweater and striped pants from Zara.

My red number was a wardrobe staple during my recent trip to Spain.  From shopping trips along the Gran Via in Madrid to the gorgeous beaches of Valencia and people watching on La Rambla in Barcelona, the red SoHo Denim watch fit yet stood out with every outfit.

Spring and summer are also great times to sport your favorite white looks. The red SoHo adds a chic and colorful touch to this textured white dress from Zara.

The best thing about SoHo? Its super affordable price. At $50 a piece, there’s absolutely no reason not to snatch up all three colors (my mom already did). Get yours here.

A great piece always provides great inspiration for one's entire look. The red lipstick above (Wet n Wild Stoplight Red) was inspired by the gorgeous straps of the SoHo.

5 ‘Cinderella’ inspired looks for the spring bride

The tale of Cinderella is one that has been told over and over again to many little girls and adults alike, so it’s no surprise that the live action version of the story took the top spot at the movies this past weekend. Although we’re strong believers in creating our own happiness (instead of waiting for a mysterious prince to save us), we still loved the movie. The exquisite fashion, heralded by costume designer Sandy Powell was also beyond words.

Another thing we couldn’t get enough of was actress Lily James’ uber chic style while promoting the film. From Prada to Dior and Elie Saab couture, the starlet hit all the right notes in her first headlining stint.

Her style was so on point that we decided to pull together our favorite looks as inspiration for the spring bride. Whether you’re thinking of opting for a traditional princess ball gown or going for a minimalist and modern look, we have no doubt that each of ‘Cinderella’s’ looks will give you butterflies and inspiration.

Lily James sported another ice blue look --this time by Prada. If you're looking to go the goddess route with your dress, this look is elegant yet sexy. It shows the perfect amount of skin.

This rose colored ball gown is so feminine and light. If strapless is your thing, don't be afraid to play around with different interpretations. Opting for something with texture or less than conventional draping will make you stand out.

We love this rose colored Dior ball gown –even more because it’s so feminine and light. If strapless is your thing, don’t be afraid to play around with different interpretations. Opting for something with texture (taffeta in this case) or less than conventional draping will make you stand out.

When it works, it works. The actress called on another Elie Saab gown for a screening at Disneyland. The whimsy and fit of this dress is what makes it so appealing. We can see it on a bride looking to incorporate nature (gorgeous woods anyone?) into her wedding.

Lily opted for a teacup length Nicholas Oakwell couture dress at the film's Russian premiere. This length is hard to pull off but when it works, it's perfection. It's elegant  and reminiscent of the chic of such stars like Audrey Hepburn. Best part is that it doesn't seem to have lost it's femininity in all its understated glory.

Michelle Williams ushers in spring with a new platinum do

We have always adored actress, Michelle Williams. From her days as the resident bad girl Jen Lindley on Dawson’s Creek to her transformation into a bona fide red carpet style star, our girl crush on her has seriously grown over the years. The actress has not only found a way to cement her style status with slightly offbeat yet glamorous looks, when it comes to her personal life, she’s also retained a level of class that most actresses only dream of.

This month, she’s gracing the cover of Elle UK and discussing motherhood, ‘I feel like I’m so good at raising a kid when I’m not working…I don’t forget anything. I’ve got everything covered. It’s a real luxury to have a moment when I’m not scrambling. I feel like most of my life, I’m trying to do two things at once, both to the best of my abilities.’

She also discussed shunning social media for good old fashioned poetry, ‘I love poetry because it’s like a shot, like an attack, like a dose. And for a person who doesn’t have very much free time, it does its work very quickly. So I read poems on my phone when I wake up in the morning.’

She adds, ‘It opens you up for the rest of the day, and suddenly your life becomes a little more observed. And when it becomes more observed, it can’t help but start to become more beautiful.’

The actress looked stylish and at ease in a colorblocked Louis Vuitton number.

As the face of Louis Vuitton, it makes sense that she was outfitted in the brand’s latest and chicest looks. As gorgeous as the clothes look on her, the one thing we can’t get enough of is her uber stylish and newly dyed platinum locks. The length is perfectly chic and the tousled waves are a great way to usher in spring.

The April 2015 issue of ELLE UK is out on newsstands and available via Apple Newsstand on March 5th.
