Little White Dress

I can’t believe I waited so long to talk about the little white dress for summer!!  I love this trend!!!  A much needed break from the little black dress and so season appropriate.  There is no shortage of white dresses in different fabrics and lengths.  Gone are the days when we only associate white with weddings for summer time (though I still think wearing white to weddings is very inappropriate & rude, so wear it anywhere except a wedding) .  Celebs are wearing it to death on most red carpets and in their daily lives; it’s so easy to dress up and down and you can definitely mix it with colors.  White  is universally flattering on all skin tones and you will surely find a cut in a dress that will suit your beautiful body; a trend we can all rock!!  See below all the celebs in white and I also added my pics to show you how I wear this trend.

This week trendy report is on something that I am not really feeling – crop tops! Celebs of all ages are wearing crop tops from red carpets to everyday errand runs. But are crop tops a trend that’s suitable for all of us? In my humble opinion, it’s not. While there is nothing really wrong with the trend in itself, you can definitely rock it if you have the body and confidence to pull it off; it’s not something that is universally flattering and you have to be very careful with the fabric and cuts you choose to wear on the bottom while wearing the tops. Curvier or a little older women, in real life not in Hollywood (cause if you are there, you can basically get away with anything, lol), can’t really wear this trend. I think this is one trend that I will leave for the teenagers and skinny minis.

Below are pics of Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Gwyneth Paltrow, Rihanna and Zoe Saldana looking hot in their crop tops; Miley & Selena even wears it during the day. I also added pics of Leona Lewis, Megan Good and Kim Kardashian (Kimmy wearing the same piece as Gweny) looking not so great in their crop tops; as you can see even though these are beautiful ladies, the cuts or fabrics they choose are simply not flattering. What is your opinion on crop tops? Love it or leave it?

Trendy news of the week is one of my favorite COLOR-BLOCK!! What a great excuse to wear all the colored items in your closet for this summer – clothes, shoes and jewelry!! If you haven’t been color-blocking, then what are you waiting for? You need to start ASAP. Color-blocking doesn’t mean you can only do it with bright colors; it applies to all the colors of the rainbow.

If you are someone who isn’t into brights or have to wear more neutrals for work, then you can still color-block with white, black, grey, brown/nude and blue. For the rest of us color fanatics, the combinations are endless.

But just for good measure, I always consult the color wheel (yes that one that you probably haven’t seen since your tiny tots school days). It helps to see what opposites are complimentary or how you can color-block using colors in the same range for that minimum effect.

Take a cue from all the celebs that are trending in color-block and below are some of my pics showing how I wear this trend.

This week’s trendy topic is on spring/summer’s biggest splash – NEON! From clothes, shoes, jewelry to make up and even hair, we are seeing neon everywhere. Though I am not afraid of wearing colors, I am very cautious of wearing neon. It’s just so “look at me” bright that I feel like it points out all my flaws, lol. So, I decided to try out this trend little by little; I started with jewelry first, then to tops, and finally to a dress (yes, the orange dress below is my only neon dress). I am still on the fence about wearing neon shoes (I like my shoes and bags to be neutral colors) but I am definitely not going to try neon make up (too bold for me, lol). Below are some of my favorite celebs rocking the neon trend and also two of my pictures to show you how I wore my neon.

First picture is a daytime look of me wearing an eyelet dress with neon pink necklace and I paired that with bright (not neon) yellow and pink bracelets. I think the neon adds some sass to the plain white dress.

Second picture is my version of doing neon at night; it’s me wearing my neon orange dress with black accessories and shoes. Since the dress is so bright, I decided to wear it with simple, understated jewelry and plain black belt and shoes to tame the outfit a little.

Let me know in the comments below what you think about wearing neon and how you styled it. Is there any other trend that you are currently obsessed with or would like me to talk about?

Below are some places where you can get neon:

Charlotte Russe dress
Forever 21 top
Rocks Paper Metal earrings
ColorblocksShop necklace
Target shoes (a steal!!)
Aldo purse

 

Monday Madness

Mad about denim shirts!!  Denim is the only item in my closet that I can wear year round in NY; from freezing cold to hot melting in the sun summer days, it never fails and is always fashionable.  So, why not add a denim shirt to your collection of must have staples?  I am pretty sure most of you have this item in your closet, or have been wearing it for years, and you must think it’s not really a staple if you can only wear it casually, since its denim. However, recent celeb outings will make you think otherwise.  Denim shirts have been showing up from red carpets to night out on the town.  It’s pretty much a neutral piece and can be dressed up or down depending on what you wear it with.

Night out:

Dress it up for night out by pairing it with fitted pencil skirt and sky high heels, like my fav fashionista Rihanna, or switch the pencil skirt with fitted leather pants/leggings like Kristin Cavallari for a girls night out. Another great night time option is tucking it in colored pants, (choose cotton sateen pants) like Rachel Roy for a dinner date.

Daytime:

Denim on denim is a great look for daytime, as long as you pair it light & dark (light shirt with dark denim or vice versa).  See how Ashley Olsen wears it with dark denim skinny jeans and Katie Holmes wears it with dark denim bell-bottoms (you can switch the bell-bottoms with denim trousers for a more dressed up daytime look).  Wear it with any type of shorts or mini skirts (denim on denim & I know you fash lovers have worn it with shorts/minis before) for running errands like Vanessa Hudgens and Anne Hathaway respectively.

Trends:

Colored and floral printed denim are very trendy now.  See how Khloe K. wears her fiery red jeans with denim shirt (and leopard, I love leopard).  Rihanna & Katie Holmes are back again showing us how they paired their floral pants with denim shirt.  Maxi skirts are also another summer fav and trendy now; see how Drew Barrymore styled her shirt with long, ruffled skirt, totally casual chic (a dressy option for daytime)!!  Lastly, we have Jenna Dewan-Tatum who is wearing her denim shirt with printed maxi skirt for very casual look great for running errands or strolling hand in hand with your love enjoying a great summer day.

Let me know how you guys style your denim shirts in the comments below.

Here are few retailers where you can get your denim on:

Asos

Levi’s

Gap

Urban Outfitters (has tons more in different price range)

Today’s trendy report is about Peter Pan Collar.  I thought this one was a little young when I first saw it and that I would look ridiculous wearing this trend.  But then I saw celebs of all ages wearing it (from Hailey Steinfield 15, Naya Rivera 25, to Natalie Portman 31) and realized it’s something I can def try, w/out looking like I am trying to be 12.  So, I decided to give it a shot and was surprised at how much I liked it!!  I bought two different type of shirts, first is a light pink chiffon (yes, of course, I bought chiffon, lol, I am obsessed with it!!!) and the second one is a dressy nudey/taupey color with silver spots on it.  I have yet to buy a Peter Pan collared dress since I already bought 2 tops, trying to save some $$$; let’s see may be soon I can get one.

Below you will see pictures of how I styled each shirt:

The pink one I wore with black dressy shorts for work and paired it with pastel colored earrings, bangles, patent skinny belt and shoes (a little black against black contrast, I thought the patent would stand out more than leather since the pants were black).  If your work has a stricter dress policy, you can switch the shorts with pencil skirt or long cotton sateen pants and a black linen blazer (cotton sateen and linen will keep you cool but they are still dressy enough for work). I also wore this same shirt to a BBQ recently (not pictured, I didn’t take any, big oops) with light blue jeans shorts and matching pink flats with bows (yes I like bows too, lol, so girly, it always makes me happy), and same jewelry.  So, it’s a very versatile top, probably because it’s made of Chiffon, ha!!

The nude/taupe one is a little dressier so I wore it with darker washed skinny jeans for a casual date night with the hubby or a girls night out.  Paired it with black satin pumps for extra shot of hotness and kept the jewelry silver matching with the silver spots (I wore a rounder shaped earrings to mimic the shape of the silver spots on the shirt).

Let me know what you guys think about this trend, if you have tried or will try.  Are there any other trends now that you are loving/hating or want me to talk about?
