Trend Alert: Denim head-to-toe

Fashion is always evolving, changing, and making old trends new again. Double denim, or head-to-toe denim use to be a huge fashion faux pas, but designers and celebrities have started pairing denim with more and denim this spring. Celebrities and models have all been piling on shades of blue, but no worries you don’t have to be either of those to pull of this trend. Check out this model from the Ralph Lauren Spring/Summer 2010 runway show, notice the lighter colored shirt with darker jeans. That is key to making this look good for everyday wear. Matching denim head-to-toe can be a bit much if you ask me.

Cameron Diaz, who is always looking effortlessly chic switches it up with a darker shirt and lighter jeans. I also love the distressed details of these jeans, it helps to keep the look relaxed and comfortable. Many celebrities are pairing this look with riding boots, so your jeans are tucked in and that looks fabulous too!

If you are feeling bold and confidant you can try something a bit more matchy matchy, like on this model. And please don’t forget if the the whole jean and denim shirt look just isn’t for you, there are loads of other options right now in denim. I have seen everything from dresses, skirts, shoes, handbags, shorts, jackets and more in denim for spring, so try some different combinations and find something that works for you!

Trend Alert: Long Dresses are Back!!!

Maxi dresses and other long flowing dresses are going to be back in a big way for spring and summer this year, and we all should be glad they are.  Maxi dresses are comfortable and flattering, allowing you to look sexy and feminine without sucking it in or living in fear afraid of accidentally showing  your underwear.  While the perfect summer dress should be long (I recommend that the maxi dress should hit just at or a smidge below your ankle) and flowing it is also important to pick a dress that looks casual enough that you don’t look like you are prepping for prom in the middle of the afternoon.  Below are some of my favorite long dresses.

This adorable maxi dress designed by Ella Moss encompasses everything I love about this trend.  The Hollie Racerback Maxi Dress is made of ultra soft and ultra comfortable supima cotton.  I also love the detail around the neck. This dress with a perfectly designed empire waist manages to be flattering as well as flowing which will be the perfect look this spring and summer.

If you are looking for a little more color I  love the Odessa V Neck Maxi Dress also designed by Ella Moss.

One reason I would steer readers looking for the perfect maxi dress towards Ella Moss is the great fabric choices for these dresses.   This super soft v-neck  dress is something I can see myself wearing everyday this summer.  I also love how the large v-neck allows for some adorable accessorizing.  This blue color is called waterfall and will surely make a pop in your wardrobe this summer.

SPRING/SUMMER 2010 FASHION TRENDS

Fashion trends in the spring and summer, when the flowers begin to bloom and the weather gets a tad warmer are so much more fun than your winter fashion trends. While there are many, many trends this season, I will tell you my top picks and how to wear them. Let’s just say that skin is definitely in this season!

Neutrals

Get naked (no pun intended) this season! Try to incorporate a nude shade in your wardrobe for day as well as evening – think skin-tone. Best of all, neutral shades can be paired with everything and anything from brights and prints to basic black. You should especially splurge on a neutral accessory such as a handbag or cork wedge sandal. The shade is effortlessly classic and goes with everything.

Peek-A-Boo

This style is truly for the daring.  With material such as mesh and lace and strategically placed cut-outs, the look is undeniably edgy. Dark shades are incorporated into many Alexander Wang, Michael Kors, Rodarte and Preen pieces this season, which show off a bold and sexy silhouette.

Feathers

Feathers are a fun and feminine touch to both clothing and accessories. You could pair a funky headband with a bright feather as a nice touch to a boring outfit, or you could pair a feather print blouse with destroyed skinny jeans and a few bracelets for a bohemian look. Feathers are definitely springlike and are a great alternative to floral prints!   You can find several great feather patterns by Sweet Pea.
