Cobalt blue was no doubt one of the hottest fall colors and from what we saw at last month’s New York fashion week, this hot color is not going anywhere come fall 2011. This spring, we’re going a little bit lighter on the cobalt blue color scale and Stars like Blake Lively and Jessica Alba are already in on this trend. The allure of this shade lies in the color’s richness. It’s elegant, regal and it makes a statement. It’s also a beautiful alternative to the usual turquoise we always see come spring/summer season.
Share your thoughts on this gorgeous color…are you willing to give it a try?
We’ve already established that prints are in this season. From tribal prints to stripes and polka dots, it’s all about going bold. For those that are a little hesitant about these statement prints, no need to worry, you can always go soft. The switch to softer colors came over year ago and this trend completely dominated the red carpet at premières and during the awards season.
With designers taking inspiration from the 70s, get ready for an influx of pastel prints. The beauty of this trend actually lies in it’s timelessness – it’s why it seems to pop up every few years. The look is incredibly soft and light as air….the fact that it almost creates a floating illusion on the wearer is just the cherry on top. Share your thoughts on pastel prints below…loving it or willing to pass on it?
This spring, it’s all about tapping into your animal instincts. Cocktail rings are getting an edgy make over. From panthers to snakes, owls and tarantulas, it’s bound to be a wild, wild season. What do you think of this trend? Too much or just edgy enough? Love this trend? Get your fix below!
You can never go wrong with the little black dress. It’s a fool proof way to looking elegant, sexy and stylish. Once in a while however, we come across the classic LBD with a modern twist. Check out Blake Lively in her figure hugging Antonio Berardi number. The talented Kate Winslet knows what works on her and she’s constantly shown this with her fashion choices. This time around, she’s taken a risk and incorporated one of Spring’s hottest trends – polka dots and it works because it’s unexpected. What do you think of Kate Winslet’s LBD? Hot or Not?
Amanda Seyfried captivates audiences in her latest movie Red Riding Hood. Thanks to Director Catherine Hardwicke (of Twilight fame), we also get to enjoy equally rich cinematography. The stand out piece in the movie of course is the Red Hood. Get a modernized version of the famous cape below.
The maxi-dress has been a spring/summer staple for the past few seasons due mainly to its casual chic and comfort appeal. This spring however is pointing towards the return of the proper dress. Looks like the lady-like allure of the 50s style dress is hard to ignore. When you think of elegance, this dress style always comes to mind and thanks to designers like Oscar de la Renta, Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana, Monique Lhuillier and Muiccia Prada, it’s no doubt ready to make a statement again this season.
Style Tip: It’s all about the cut when it comes to a 50s style dress. The focal points of this style are the cinched waist and full skirt. They’re also easy to wear in the day time and can be as fancy/glam as you want them to be for going out at night. For the daytime, go for fun colors like deep orange and fun prints like floral, tribal or polka dots. For fancy evenings, try metallic colors, black or lace.
What do you think of the return of the proper dress? Are you ready to let go of the maxi-dress in exchange for an elegant frock?
We’re continuing our week of spring’s hottest trends with a little animal print action. So far this week, we’ve covered polka dots, floral print and pastel leather. With animal print, there’s always a very thin line between trendy and tacky. We’re excited that this spring, this trend is getting a fun, light and flirty make-over. Thanks to designers like Dolce and Gabbana and Monique Lhuillier, you can add some chic animal print pieces to your wardrobe that are sure to stand the test of time.
Tell us what you think of the animal print look? Would you rock it or pass on it?
We’ve covered polka dots and the floral print. As we continue this week’s coverage of spring’s hottest trends, we’re moving on to a very prominent material that has not only dominated the past 2-3 seasons but also shows no sign of cooling down any time soon – leather. It’s been all over the runways, the red carpet and the stylish streets of New York, L.A, Milan, London and Paris and from the view of things at the most recent Fall 2011 shows, it is most definitely here to stay. It started with black and brown and then interesting shades of red and green…it was only a matter of time for the season’s hottest material to merge with it’s hottest shades. You can now find your leather in pastel colors like tan, blush and light gray. It’s the perfect soft, feminine look with an edge.

We’re continuing our week of featuring spring’s hottest trends and today, it’s all about the full bloom. The floral print is HUGE for spring. This is a trend that started last summer and has continued to make a stylish and consistent showing since. Who could forget Jessica Alba’s rosy Dolce and Gabbana or Sarah Jessica Parker’s floral Vivienne Westwood number.
The floral print is such a fun and feminine print and is the absolute perfect way to bring in the warm weather. It’s also a great alternative for those who don’t want a print as bold as the tribal print trend that’s also prominent this season. Everyone from the First Lady, Michelle Obama to Kate Bosworth, Kerry Washington, Mila Kunis and Brooklyn Decker has tried this trend.
