Merging fall trends

Inspiration- Merging fall trends F 14

It’s official, we’re slowing moving away from summer sad day for everyone north of the equator.  As we start to think of what’s next for our personal style, I’m showing you how to merge Fall trends together into one look.  The trends we’re focusing on today are: fur, sixties and bright colors.  Instead of going for the easy fur stole or fur coat, go for an edgier look with a fur, fabric-blocking sweatshirt.  This is cool and different, giving you a foot forward on a fashionable way to wear the trend.  Next up are the sixties.  This skirt is retro and classy.  Throw on a modern-day Mary Jane and you’re really embracing the trend.  Lastly, the bright colors.  I love jewel tones in the fall.  These crushed ruby heels paired with a lemon yellow bag and crystalized pink earrings create a rich pop of color.  As you start putting together outfits for fall, don’t go for the obvious trendy pieces.  Create your own style by wearing multiple trends together.

Transitional wardrobe

Everything- Transitional wardrobe S 14

As we head into the Labor Day Weekend, I sit here and envision the cold weather coming more quickly than I’d like.  Until it’s time for full blown coats again in DC, I’m exited to wear transitional wardrobe pieces.  This is all about fabrics that work for winter but have a light, summery feel or vice-versa.  Neutral colors will be your base colors for the fall season.  Accessorize with a classy navy bag for a subtle pop of color, or a printed pair of flat for a more playful look.  Whatever your style, get ready for sales this weekend and remember to look for pieces that will work now and into the colder months to come.

Have a safe & happy Labor Day Weekend.  See you back here on Tuesday! XO

Oh so sunny

Inspiration- Oh so sunny S 14

The sun is out and I’m loving it, so what better color to wear than yellow!  I’ve always loved the color yellow but being a eehhhhemmm fake blonde you have to make sure the clothes don’t clash with your hair.  Style Tip: Break up the color.  This yellow skirt is broken apart from my hair by a denim shirt, still allowing me to be able to rock the color.  Another great way to incorporate yellow into your wardrobe is through accessories.  An amazing yellow bag or electric yellow pumps are perfect for a bright pop of color.  Keep the sunshine out this fall with a yellow infused look.

I see through you

Everything- Translucent Eyewear S 14

The ruling is in and translucent frames are trending for menswear.  This geeky-chic vibe is everything and more.  I love the subtle hint of metal details that show through the frames, giving the hinges an edgy touch.  If you’re going to rock the translucent trend go for the super round frames.  Here are a few of my favorite men’s glasses out right now.  If you’re a sucker for the semi-rimless look, go for a two-tone pair of glasses.  Find a pair of translucent frames that fits your face and rock ‘em.

2014 Emmys Red Carpet Fashion

Everything- Emmys 2014 Fashion Trends S 14

Thank you Hollywood for making my week with two days jam-packed of red carpet fashion.  Last night’s 66th Emmy Awards were nothing less than fabulous.  Let’s just start by saying, in contrast to the VMAs, the red carpet was covered in color.  The trending colors were hues of blue, orange and champagne.  Aside from the colors, you’ll notice a heavy play on two-tone gowns and boxy silhouettes.  Strapless necklines, high necklines and color blocking gave the looks the dramatic boxy feel, while still conforming beautifully against the celebrities natural curves.  The last womenswear trend was what I’d like to call, Textured in Shine.  From a velvet fabric to metallic and beaded details, the gowns were worthy of touching and glistening down the red carpet.  For menswear, black & blue looks were the dominating colors.  Aside from the classic tie vs bow tie accessorizing, translucent framed glasses were a hit.  They’re simple, sophisticated and perfect for a black-tie affair.  Take cue from these trends for your upcoming fall wardrobe.

2014 MTV VMAs

Everything- 2014 MTV VMAs S 14

Let’s discuss the red carpet arrivals at last night’s 2014 MTV VMAs.  There were more than a handful of questionable looks and for the sake of their stylists, we won’t even go there.  On to my favorite looks of the night, along with the key trends: plunging necklines, cutouts and a lack of color with black & white outfits.  The necklines were extremely low enough said.  The cutouts came in a variety of different forms.  Jennifer Lopez rocked the traditional skin-exposing cutout style gown, while Beyonce embraced the cutout trend with a layer of lace over the skin, giving her look a peekaboo feel.  The color trend on the red carpet was in classic black and white.  From head-to-toe, there was a crisp, clean feel without out any pop colors.  I love the minimalistic feel, especially with the natural makeup and simple, center-parted hair styles.  Take on these two revealing trends if you dare to bare some skin, otherwise just keep things classy with a black and white look.
