He’s red, white and blue too

Everything- He's red white and blue too S 15

Alright guys, let’s kick up the color.  Sticking with the patriotic theme, today is all about the menswear pieces for your 4th of July festivities.  This humidity makes it too hot for sleeves, so I’m loving the idea of a casual tank top.  The stripes in the shirt set the tone for the look, allowing the rest of the items the ability to be simple and color-infused.  The abundance of red, white and blue is bold yet subtle throughout the entire look.  I also love how the brown leather creates a sophisticated feeling.  Grab your festive koozie and let’s get ready to celebrate!

What are you wearing for the 4th of July?

Tank: H&M
Shorts: Jack Spade
Watch: Fossil
Koozie: Cotton On
Loafers: Cole Haan

The patriotic beauty

Everything- the patriotic beauty S 15

The red, white and blue countdown continues.  Patriotic style doesn’t just come in the form of fashion.  Liven  up your beauty routine with a dose of color.  I love a bold, playful red lip.  It’s the easiest of bold-colored beauty trends to rock.  A red lip perfectly accentuates a neutral palette.  For the more daring girl, I love the idea of swapping out black liner for a bold blue.  The rich blue liner will make your eyes pop.  For the most versatile of options, I like to create a fun splash of color on my nails.  Mix together metallics with solid colors for textural play on the eyes.  Ready, set, let’s play with color.

What patriotic beauty products will you be wearing this 4th of July?

Eye Liner: Sephora
Lip Gloss: Artistry
Red Nail Polish: OCC Makeup
White Nail Polish: OCC Makeup

Schiaparelli

Runway- Schiaparelli S C 15

It’s time for couture fashion to channel their red, white and blue palettes.  Without intension, Schiaparelli‘s Spring 2015 Couture collection was richly saturated in patriotic colors.  With the 4th of July on my mind, I’m pulling inspiration from the chicest of places– cue the couture runways.  I love how each color is captivating, while creating a clean, refreshing look.  The beading, prints and trim-work hone into the essence of couture lines– the intricate, hand-made details that mold the pieces into true couture fashion.  Take on the couture side of life when styling your 4th of July look this weekend.

With the 4th of July holiday just a week away, it’s time to get patriotic.  Red, white and blue pieces are popping up in stores and it’s time to nail down your perfect patriotic style.  Typically, I’ll go straight for a striped piece, but this year I’m mixing it up.  I love the abundance of color in this dress.  Patriotic style can come in any combination of red, white and blue.  To complete this look, drape yourself in white and blue accessories.  Happy patriotic-color shopping this weekend.

Colorful work week

A1

Rock the color.  This week’s look is all about wearing color to work.  Going through the weekly grind kind sometimes put our wardrobe in auto-mode, wearing the same outfit combinations as they come easily and thoughtlessly to us at the crack of dawn before the rush hour morning commute.  Snap out of it– give your work outfit some love too!  When getting dressed in the morning, from bra to coat, your outfit even if you don’t realize it sets the tone for your day.  If the fit isn’t right, the color is uninspiring or whatever it may be, this dictates your mood and confidence for your day ahead.  Summer calls for color, fun and spontaneity.  Take your colorful and/or printed sundress and make it work for work.  I chose a light-weight sweater that pulled together a more sophisticated feel, paired with black heels, to my playful sundress.  The simple act of wearing a color and playful print really brightened up my mood for the day.  Try it, you’ll be surprised at your change in confidence and the compliments you’ll get for livening up your office.

How do you incorporate color and print into your work week style?

Dress: Old Navy, Sweater: Target
Heels: Jessica Simpson, Sunglasses: Oakley
Earrings: PJ Designs (custom)

Trussardi

Runway- Trussardi M S 16

From head-to-toe!  Trussardi‘s menswear Spring 2016 collection was revealed within the rows of books at Milan’s Braidense Library.  There was a strong emphasis on the man behind the clothes– his intellectual whit is paired with a relaxed sense of stability– the modern family man enters the scene.  Each look was draped in monochromatic layers, building upon an assortment of rich textures and details.  Contrasting fabrics lined the lapels of jackets, while finishing details popped with style on cuffs and hems of pants.  This new Trussardi man is the true definition of effortlessly cool.
