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.

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.

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.

Spring and summer collections have hit the runway, set the trends and we are excited! Is time to step outside without the countless layers and finally show that summer body you have been working for all winter! Let’s start this spring the right way shall we?

For starters we saw flirty crop tops on every runway giving the 90’s a sweet comeback! The designers played with this tops by mixing them with high-wasted maxi-skirts, straight leg leather pants, cotton shorts and more.

Pink Trend

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.

Sheer

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.

Pantone Color Of The Year 2014: Radiant Orchid

Radiant Orchid, ever since Pantone released its 2014 color of the year it’s all everyone has been talking about. The color is a beautiful purple and has me wanting to be in a field of flowers. Unfortunately, it’s still a little chilly for that but incorporating it into your wardrobe is not a problem! & This trend is here to stay as spring approaches us. Now, here are a few tips I have on working this color into your office attire and making a statement when grabbing drinks with the girls.

Work: Just because its Monday doesn’t mean you should wear the same blazer you did last Monday. Nope –  it’s time to give your office style a boost. The key to this look is sticking to the basics while adding pops of color. I suggest wearing your favorite black slacks, a patterned blouse, and topping it off with a sand colored cape. Once you’ve got this classic look put together have some fun and brighten up your outfit with a bold pair of heels, oversized purse (for all of your must-haves) and a statement necklace.  If you are still craving more of this dazzling color, try adding a skinny belt and polish you nails.

Weekend: Radiant Orchid is going to be your new favorite staple for making the most of your weekends. This bright hue will have you making statements and keeping the energy high. I started this look with a classic structured blouse incorporating light rouging. Next, pair it with a Khaki colored circle skirt and a denim jacket. These neutral tones will help keep your outfit from being too overwhelming. I also chose to pair this look with a cheetah flat and bold dangling earrings to give it a little more spice. Keep your bag simple such as a black cross body or clutch and I always enjoy an arm party, so stack on those bangles!

7 Must Have Winter Fashion Trends

Long gone are the beach talks and the barbeque pool parties, your summer romance, and park-dates’ afternoons; when the sun starts to set a bit sooner than usual, and we obtain longer nights with colder evenings. With Winter in full swing, shopping and catching up with the latest fashion trends is a must. Putting away the short-shorts and the bathing suits, fall gives us a chance to explore the new trends and ideas.

This winter we experience shades of warmer tones like Burgundy, also known as Oxblood, Gray, and Pastels. We revive the feelings of the 90’s and let our style get a bit more rebellious. Keep reading for the Top 7 trends of the season, and items you must have in your closet. You don’t want to “fall” behind don’t you?

1.  Oxblood/ Burgundy

BB Final

This color exudes passion, and this fall is made even more dramatic with deeper, darker undertones.

2. The Riot Girl

Riot

The smell of youth from the 90’s is back, letting our style show a rebellious statement even if we can’t. From the runway to the street, oversized layered clothing, slip dresses, beanies, comeback boots to plaid across all markets.

3. Embellishments

Embellishment Finals

Exuding a “back-off” attitude with all the embellishments’ are alive in the runway, given the garments a bold yet luxurious look this fall. An embellishment detail added on to the pockets, hems, collars or anywhere in the garment will give it a personalized look and will make you unique and give you a distinct look from the rest of the crowd.

4. Mixed Textures 

mix up final

The most fun trend of all! Playing with fabrics never got easier; normally you must choose one novelty fabric and stick to the basics. It’s time to cheat and look fabulous while doing it! Play with your silks, metallic, leather, lace and many more textures to create a great look. Create combinations that take you from day to night if you’d wish, while keeping warm at the same time, just make sure they are all within the same color palette.

5. Gray for Black?

grey

Seems like gray has found its way home this season. Going broad from hair wear to wool cocktail dresses, gray has expanded the trend. Designers this season have found yet a new way to portray cool contemporary looks by using different shades of grays into their color scheme.

6. All Pastel

Pastel final
Stepping aside from the dark tones and shades, there is a more feminine look to the season.

7. Fur Coats

Fur Final

And our favorite trend of all… The FUR Coat!

So, hit the stores Lovelies and get your dose of winter style!
