no makeup

The “No-Makeup Make-up Look”

Obviously we all want to look flawless the minute we wake up. Re-create this look use your favorite foundation or cc/bb cream, apply concealer only where needed and curl those lashes! Finish the look with a light berry lipstick or a soft nude and you are ready to go 😉

orange lips

Orange Lip

Orange is the hue of the season, replacing the red and the dark lip colors we saw designers ranging from Chanel to Fendi opting for this amazing color in various shades.

white liner

Big Eyes

Another trend that makes your eyes look bigger without actually trying. Revive this look all you have to do is apply a white liner to your bottom lids, for a more enhanced look add white liner to your top lid as the base for your eye shadow.

green blue

A Pop of Green & Blue

We are all about a natural look these days; however with spring in our hands it’s only right to add a pop of color and catch the kind of attention you deserve.

decorated eyebrows

Bold Eyebrows

Perfectly shaped and groomed eyebrows are NOT the eyebrows of the season, thick luxury brows are in style! Add at little decor and you’ve got yourself a fun funky look for spring!

What She Should Have Worn…All Along!

Pamela

Who would’ve ever thought that the words “Pamela Anderson” and “chic” would ever be together in the same sentence?Well, it seems that a lot more has changed recently than just Pam’s hair, she’s had an entire style make-over!

After chopping her long blond locks into a chic pixie cut, Pamela’s seemingly gone from trashy to classy overnight. Gone are the penciled on eyebrows, too-tight clothes, and fake-orange tan; instead, she’s swapped them for a more natural look complete with a new wardrobe of classic cardigans and tasteful dresses.

This is past October, while out and about in L.A., Pamela appeared to be channeling Mia Farrow in a striped dress, cream colored cardigan, and black ballet flats. This is a great, fresh look for spring, and perfect for keeping off the chill from that early spring weather.

Pink Fiesta

Following the knit sweaters and pencil skirts were chic cropped-jackets and sexy dresses with lovely pink shades that screamed “Fabulous!” Pastel is definitely the “IT” family of colors this season.

Graphic Print

These graphics combinations of hues and colors contrasted by lines going in different variations, giving your outfit an edgy yet sophisticated look.

See Through Apparel

It was never a sin to show a bit more skin. Breaking the rules, designers play with floral embroideries, lace and chiffon prints- alluring aesthetic of the women’s femininity as a fashion weapon

Shirt Trend

Oxford Come-on

Ranging from button down jackets to dress shirts, designers took the meaning of casual to a whole new level, by incorporating embellishments and embroidery to shirtdresses and shirts.

Shoes

The Winklepicker

Like it or not the pointy toe shoes have made a huge comeback! From comfortable flats to stilettos, they have added a hint of perfection to every look on the runway.

Opposites Attract: Jackie O Meets Sci-Fi

Sci-Fi

It is a universal truth that opposites attract, and this is especially true when it comes to fashion. Sticking with one look or style can make for a simple, clean look, but it can also be incredibly boring. Mixing two opposite styles together can make for a look that is both interesting and unique. For this look we’re going to mix together two styles that most people think would probably never go together: Jackie O and Sci-Fi.

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis is probably the person that automatically comes to mind when the words ‘classic style’ are mentioned, she was known for her love of clean lines and impeccable fit when it came to style. Luckily, classic looks are a great foundation for the building blocks of style, and adding a bit of irony to an otherwise classic look can make for an original and conversation-starting ensemble. The irony in this particular look comes from the fantastical world of sci-fi. Sci-fi clothing is known for its ‘anything goes’ aesthetic, where it’s not abnormal to see sky-high hairdos, outrageous shoulder pads, and cage-wrapped dresses; sometimes all at once!

To achieve this look without it going too costume-y, try to keep the underlying layers clean and simple, with futuristic accents thrown in throughout. Start with a simple black sheath dress and pair it with a cool shrunken blazer, very Jackie! The blazer brings in a hint of sci-fi with its unusual proportions and strong shoulders. Nothing says Jackie O more than a pair of classic pumps, but for a twist try pumps with interesting details, such as this pair with its clear panels and silver capped toes.  Finally, throw in some cool accessories for that ultimate sci-fi look; this chain necklace and diamond studs are classic enough to channel Jackie O, but the unusual shapes and materials keeps them looking futuristic. Lastly, throw on a pair of Jackie’s signature oversized sunglasses and you’re ready to go.  Aren’t you a futuristic fashionista!
