  • Best and Worst Dressed at the 2017 American Music Awards

    With the year coming to a close, another 2017 awards ceremony is now but memory. The 45th Annual American Music Awards took place on November 19, 2017 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California. It was hosted by Tracee Ellis Ross.

    With the 2017 AMAs being the last awards show of the year, the pressure was on for celebrities to make best dressed lists. Outfits had to be on-point and paired perfectly with accessories, hair, and makeup. With the pressure so high, celebs either end up succeeding with flying colors or totally missing the mark. See our picks for best and worst dressed below, and even how you can snag those best dressed styles yourself!

    With Tracee Ellis Ross hosting the event, of course she is number one on our AMAs Best Dressed list. Our favorite look of hers for the night was the gorgeous burgundy sequined gown she wore on the red carpet.

    Grab Tracee's AMAs style with Primavera 9713, a glamorous sequined gown that comes in burgundy just like her dress. This magnificent fitted gown is covered in a lively sequin print, from start to finish. Our favorite part of this dress has to be the mesmerizing illusion cutouts on the back of the dress.

    Corinne Foxx

    Corrine Foxx is taking the fashion scene head-on this year! If you haven't heard this name yet, she is actor Jamie Foxx's daughter. Earlier this year, she walked the Sherri Hill runway to show off the designer's new Spring/Summer 2018 collection. Now, she's walking award show red carpets... right next to her big-time celebrity dad, of course.Jovani 50908

    Do you recognize the jumpsuit she's wearing? If so, that's because she's rocking another one of your favorite dress designers: Jovani! The halter jersey jumpsuit she's wearing is Jovani 50908. It's a stylish and sexy choice that still oozes with elegance for any event, whether the red carpet or the prom dance floor.

    Selena Gomez

    Selena went for full-on rock star at the 2017 American Music Awards. We loved her leather jacket inspired dress, and her brand new blonde hair! The black stilettos and clutch and red lips were the perfect way to finish off her rocker-chic look.

    While this is a totally original dress that's hard to duplicate, there are plenty of faux leather dresses you can choose from that are perfect for holiday parties, winter formals, or even prom.

    Selena showed off her badass side on the stage, too, debuting her latest single, "Wolves," a collaboration with Marshmellow. Check it out below!

    Lea Michele

    When does Lea Michele not look totally chic? Basically never. She chose a light pink gown that has us so ready for prom season! She kept her makeup and accessories simple to really let the sparkles on her dress stand out. Watch her twirl down the red carpet in her gown in the below video.

    Get Lea's AMAs style with Faviana 10006, and off-the-shoulder dress that features a lace bodice and chiffon skirt. It's a soft and sultry look that's sure to have you twirling around the prom dance floor just like Lea down the AMAs red carpet!

    Faviana 10006

    Jenna Dewan Tatum

    With Channing Tatum by you're side, we're pretty sure there's no way to look bad. Jenna's got a style all her own, though, and she looked so gorgeous at the 2017 AMAs! She wore a sparkly nude color dress and couldn't have looked sexier. She even said on her Instagram account that this dress is one of her favorites ever!

    Shameless dress pic. Because it’s one of my favorites ever. Thank you @julienmacdonald ⭐️❤️

    To get Jenna Dewan Tatum's look for prom, go with Jovani 58506. This dress makes for a sexy choice with its all-over sparkles, side cutouts, and open back. It's a look perfect for a black tie New Year's Eve event or prom!Jovani 58506

    Worst Dressed at the 2017 AMAs

    Yara Shahidi

    While we love all that sparkles, actress Yara Shahidi has a lot going on with her AMAs look. The combination of collared shirt, dressy shorts, trench coat, and knee-high socks with heels looks more like a totally funky day-out-with-the-girls outfit, rather than a red carpet outfit.

    Madeleine Petsch

    Black dresses are perfect for any event, but there's a little too much going on with Madeleine Petsch's black dress. A black dress is all about classic elegance; keep it simple, rather than trying to fit every trend, like feathers, lace, illusion, deep v-neck, etc, all into one dress.

    Sabrina Carpenter

    We love Girl Meets World star Sabrina Carpenter, and she usually has such great style! But, she may have gone a little overboard with taking a cue from the funky styles she wears on Girl Meets World with her AMAs looks. While it's always fun to add a touch of uniqueness to your looks, keep it within limits for semi-formal and formal events.

    Julia Michaels

    We're not sure if Julia Michaels is trying to dress up as Lydia in her wedding dress from the Beetlejuice movie, a Christmas present, or a loofa Halloween costume! Either way, while bold red is a totally great color choice, the excessive layers of tulle are a little much.

    Rene Bargh

    We love army green, but it may be misplaced at a formal event, especially when paired with a statement belt like on Rene Bargh's AMA dress.

    Remember, whether on the best or worst dressed list, there are always style cues you can take and incorporate into your own outfits. So, even if there are certain elements of the worst dressed looks you loved, don't be afraid to incorporate them into your next outfit! After all, the most important thing in dressing up is choosing something you're comfortable and confident in.

  • Watch The Sherri Hill Spring/Summer 2018 Runway Show

    We may be going into the cooler fall and winter months, but dress designer Sherri Hill is in full Prom 2018 mode with steaming hot new looks. While the new Sherri Hill Spring/Summer 2018 Collection isn't available yet, the designer held their runway show on Tuesday, September 13, 2017 as a preview of what's to come.

    The entire show was streamed live on Facebook, and we are obsessing over all of the new styles! If you missed the live stream, watch the entire Sherri Hill Spring/Summer 2018 Runway Show below.

    It looks like fringe is coming back in full-force with Sherri Hill for the upcoming season. So many looks featured chic fringe detail that we can't wait to get our hands on. Other than fringe, there were lots of bold colors, unique patterns and embellishments, florals, jumpsuits, dresses with capes, and lots of sparkles.

    The gorgeous new Sherri Hill dresses are not the only reason that we loved what we saw on the Sherri Hill Spring/Summer 2018 runway. We also loved who we saw on the runway! In case you missed it, actor Jamie Foxx's daughter, Corinne Foxx, was one of Sherri Hill's models. InStyle went behind the scenes to show the 23-year-old transforming into a bonafide supermodel. Watch the video below.  Continue reading

  • Miss America 2018 Cara Mund Wins In JOVANI!

    Another year has gone by, and a new Miss America has been crowned! Sunday, September 10, 2017 marked the Miss America 2018 pageant, held in our hometown of Atlantic City, NJ. The 91st Miss America crown was given to a first-time state winner. The history-making Miss America is Miss North Dakota, Cara Mund!

    Not only is this the first time North Dakota has won the crown, but it's also the first time that a woman from her state has placed in the top five. Cara Mund did an amazing job, from being judged in categories like talent, evening wear, lifestyle, fitness, and their answer to an onstage question. During the talent portion of the pageant, Cara wowed the judges with a jazz dance performance to Michael Jackson's "The Way You Make Me Feel." Our favorite part of Cara winning the Miss America crown, though, was what she was wearing when crowned. She won in a Jovani dress!

    Miss North Dakota Cara Mund

    Cara represented North Dakota in a beautiful chic and sophisticated black velvet Jovani gown that featured a unique keyhole detail on both the front and back. It's style 27462, and is available for custom order.

    With summer on its way out and fall 2017 almost here, it's time to update that wardrobe with new looks to take you into the cooler months. Of course, our favorite fall dress-up day is Homecoming, and there are six trends that we are obsessing over for Homecoming 2017. Check them out below for some great ideas to ensure you're totally on-trend for your back to school homecoming dance.

    Trend #1: Lace Dresses

    Homecoming 2017 Trend Lace Dresses

    The most in-demand Homecoming 2017 styles starts with a trend that's been a staple over a few years now, for both Homecoming and Prom. That trend is lace! A dress embellished with lace details makes for such a timeless romantic look, and can easily be dressed up or down.

    The dress shown in the picture above is Alyce 2646. This cocktail dress not only features lace, but also another Homecoming 2017 top trend, velvet. This romantic two-piece party dress features a velvet halter top with a high neckline, sleek side cut outs, and an open lower back. The short A-line skirt features not only lace, but a beautifully beaded waistband, opaque underlay, and a scalloped hem.

    Trend #2: Green Dresses

    Homecoming 2017 Trend Green Dresses

    Still trying to figure out what color to rock for Homecoming? Green is the color of choice for fall 2017! The reason that green is such a popular color this year is because Pantone named "Greenery" as the 2017 Pantone Color of the Year! Whether you rock a bright green color like the Color of the Year, or a darker hue, you'll be totally on-point with a green dress this fall.

    The dresses shown above are: Sherri Hill 51289 and JVN by Jovani JVN42635. Both of these dresses are perfect for showing off your figure. Sherri Hill 51289 is a lively cocktail dress that's covered in a wild sequin pattern. Jovani JVN42635 is a lovely lace pattern with botanical hints of flowers and leaves throughout the dress, all placed over a nude lining.  Continue reading

  • Easy Dresses for Every Season

    Summer has just begun, but we must look forward to the upcoming seasons in order to make our wardrobe work overtime. In your closet, you may already have some easy dresses for every season that you've overlooked. Like that favorite summer dress you just can’t live without? If you could wear it all year long you would, right? With a bit of creative styling, you can! Layer and combine texture and pattern in an artful way to extend the life of your most cherished pieces.

    The key to carrying over lightweight dresses into the colder months is to keep things simple. This can also work with heavily beaded dresses or cut-out dresses. To have the greatest success, a short body hugging dress works best as a base for your cooler weather accessories. Keep casual cocktail dresses, either in prints or in solid colors, in mind for this application. Easy dresses cut in simple forms and light fabrics make versatile additions to your closet.

    Mixing it Up With Some Hot New Styles

    Easy Dresses - Sherri Hill 50146 Strapless Floral Black and Pink Print Cocktail Style Sherri Hill 50146 Strapless Floral Print Cocktail Dress

    Sherri Hill 50146 is a great example to illustrate how to pull this off. A bold graphic floral print doesn’t have to be confined to summer or spring. Since this dress has a strapless sweetheart bodice, it would go well with a solid color cardigan, solid knit stockings, and a pair of biker boots that hit just below the calf. This gives off a look that says sweet but edgy. Playing with contrasting textures is a great way to emphasize the best of each piece. The satin-like finish on the dress against a knit fabric can look sumptuous and rich. Depending on the color cardigan you chose, you can pop one color out of the floral pattern. A pale pink or a bold fuchsia makes for an interesting statement. Putting leather boots with this look makes it feel like fall, but keep them simple. The main focus is the pattern design on the dress. Neutral earth tones go well with this look. Deep blues or slate grays are colors that could pair well with this cocktail dress. Continue reading

  • Jodie Sweetin Looked So Sweet in Sherri Hill on the 2017 People's Choice Awards Red Carpet

    January 2017 is here, and Awards Season is in full swing! Last week, it was all princess vibes at the 2017 Golden Globes, with both Lily Collins and Lola Kirke wearing pretty, soft pink gowns on the red carpet. This week, it's People's Choice Awards time!

    The 43rd People's Choice Awards, which honored the best in popular culture for 2016, was held this past Wednesday, January 18, 2017 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California. The awards show was so much fun to watch, and of course the red carpet was full of fabulous looks!

    While there were so many celebrities in pretty dresses on the 2017 People's Choice Awards red carpet, our eye was on one celeb: Jodie Sweetin. If you don't recognize the name, you'll certainly recognize the character she place on TV. Jodie plays Stephanie Tanner on the sitcoms Full House and Fuller House! Of course, everyone loves Full House. Netflix has brought it back in such style with the new TV show Fuller House, and everyone has fallen in love with Stephanie and DJ Tanner all over again.

    While we love watching Jodie on Fuller House, we couldn't believe how sweet (pun intended) she looked on the People's Choice Awards red carpet! Partly because she always looks so stunning, and partly because she was wearing one of our favorite dress designers: Sherri HillContinue reading

  • The 2017 Pantone Color of the Year is Greenery

    The year 2016 was all about balance, with Pantone naming two colors as the Color of the Year, Rose Quartz and Serenity. Now, with 2017 upon us, it's time for a brand new Color of the Year. This year is all about new beginnings, with Pantone announcing Greenery as the 2017 Color of the Year.


    In the announcement, Pantone explained that Greenery (PANTONE 15-0343) is a yellow-green shade, "that evokes the first days of spring when nature's greens revive, restore and renew." The hope is that it reminds consumers to, "take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate." With a contentious election that just ended a few weeks ago, and a new president taking office in January, this is certainly an important message to remember and take to heart.  Continue reading
