Monday Madness & Tuesday Trendy Super Combo: Velvet

monday-featured

Loving velvet outfits for winter season.  The colors on velvet look more vibrant and also the fabric is so soft to the touch, whats not to like?  This is the perfect way to add a little bit of posh to your winter festivities.  Definitely my must for holiday season; I am in the hunt now for a perfect red or green velvet dress to wear for Christmas but you can also incorporate this beauty to your everyday outfit by adding a velvet jacket or loafers.  See below some of my fav celebs rocking the trend.

The ‘it’ color for fall for sure is OXBLOOD!!  Though to me the name sounds a little grotesque (cause of the word blood it in, reminds of those slasher/horror flicks where blood is everywhere), the actual color is pretty fantastic.  The deep red (almost plumy) color is ideal for those who loves colors and also for those who are generally afraid to wear bright; easily switch black or navy to oxblood.  I normally wear this color as polish but I am thinking of getting a purse or boots this color.   Below are some of my fav celebs rocking the color and I also put some retailers where you can get your fix for oxblood.

Necklace (technically not oxblood but wine, you can still get away with it, lol) -

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.

LEOPARD PRINT!!

Yes, I know a lot of you associate leopard print with Jersey Shore’s Snooki and immediately get turned off. But it can be very classy if you dress it appropriately and can add some interesting textures in your house. Leopard print is very versatile; it can be used on jewelries, shoes, pants and dresses to home decors like pillows, throws, lampshades or photo frames.

If you are afraid that its too bold for you, try as accessory first like a clutch, bangles or shoes. It’s great way to jazz up boring, old LBD, LWD or add a bit more oomph to a bold, colorful outfit or add a little spice in your home . You can wear it 24 hours a day, casually for daytime and dress it up for night out.

See how Emma Watson, Olivia Palermo and Beyonce wears leopard in the daytime as accessories ( scarf, flats and sunglasses respectively).

Nicole Richie and Jessica Alba shows us how to dress up a casual daytime outfit with leopard print booties and jeans.

Finally, we have Brooklyn Decker, Paula Patton, Halle Berry wearing short leopard print dresses and Jennifer Lopez, Khloe Kardashian and Eva Mendez wearing long leopard dresses, all dressed it up for night out; also added a pic of a living room with some leopard pillows.

Below are some of my leopard collection and also retailers where you can get some for yourself.

Add some leopard in your life and unleash the wild animal in you!

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
