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.

What-To-Do Wednesday – What to expect this Fall

wednesday071112

The other day I heard someone complaining on how HOT it is in New York. I had to tell that person to shut up because in a month or two it’s going to get cold again and then he/she is going to wish and pray for this hot weather. When you are in NY, you have to treat every warm day as a luxury; enjoying while it’s here and pining for it when it’s gone. This weather convo got me thinking about how fall season will be coming soon and I need to go shopping!!! So, I have been scouring the web trying to find out what kinds of great fashion to expect this fall and thought I share with you lovelies about what I think most of us can easily take from the runways to our closets. I broke it down to three categories, Tough Chic, Textures, and Colors. Ready, set, let’s go SHOPPING!!!

 

toughchic

  • Military – fall runways have seen this trend from most of the designers – two of my absolute favs showed it: Jason Wu and Victoria Beckham. Think hunter green (or navy) coat with brass buttons like or a structured sheath. A great parka with leather details is also a great way to incorporate this trend in your wardrobe.
  • Menswear – runways were showing models wearing pantsuit in all sorts of prints, patterns and colors with crop pants. I think I m going to keep mine a little conservative; however, I might try a suit with crop pants (look at how Emilio Pucci did it). I like the crop pants idea!!

 

textures

  • Shakespearean – think royal glamour and opulence like you would see in Shakespeare’s plays (like this Dolce & Gabbana coat or Jessica Biel’s Instyle cover look), its plush fabric and great detailing with gold or colored stones.
  • Velvet – this is not hard to pull off, a nice velvet coat or a dress can be easily added to your closet. It’s a great way to add a little glamour to any outfit (Marc by Marc Jacobs’ blue velvet dress).
  • Leather – this one seems to never be out of style. If you read Monday’s post, then you know how leather is becoming popular this summer. Well, great news, now you can take your leather shorts, top, and skirt into fall. Just add some tights under the shorts and skirt and wool pants with the top and you are good to go (like above Michael Kors). Runways not only showed matte leather but also glossy leather in colors (though I think the glossy one is hard to pull off in real life).

 

colors

  • Burgundy/Berry – it’s so season appropriate and is actually flattering on most skin colors. Berry colored soft sweater (like Tibi shown above with glossy leather skirt) or even a nice shearling jacket.
  • White – yes, you can wear white after Labor Day!! Think thick white sweater like Derek Lam is showing here or chiffon white blouse to wear under your pantsuit (two trends in one).
  • Red – you will also see lots of red this fall, which is great!! Because either you already have something in your closet in this color or you can easily find something at any price point. I like how Donna Karen is showing the red in a form fitting dress, so sexy!!
  • Gray – its not just any gray, its pale gray that was shown on the runway. One of my favorite colors and I have tons of gray in my closet already. See how beautifully Zac Posen presented this color in a dress.
