    If you are looking to do something bold, classic and completely chic, think about the art deco style. Vintage is making a comeback. Artists and Designers from the Art Nouveau are serving as design inspiration for contemporary looks for formal dresses. Graphic prints and embellished details in the bodice and sleeve, these are ideas that come from the cusp between the bohemian and art deco eras. If you ever peruse an art history book, you may recognize styles of dress from the subjects featured in works by Degas, Klimt and Sargent.

    Turn on your inner fashionista and think back to the quality dresses Carrie Bradshaw wore on Sex and the City: bold prints, soft neutrals and always some sparkleversace mille feuille dress gallery art deco inspired look.

    Could there be a better combination than two-piece and white in one dress for the summer? After seeing Black by Blush C319, we're not sure there is! This chic and sleek two piece jersey knit features a tank style crop top that's encrusted with opaque color coordinating beadwork and a rouged pencil skirt accented with a belt of matching beading. Dresses like this can be extra fun because you can mix and match the skirt and top with other styles of your choosing over and over again. This two piece dress also features a cut-out open back.

    Black by Blush C310 is a sleek jersey knit sheath that features a beaded high neck, eye catching keyhole back, and a finished hem trimmed with matching metallic beading. This dress is especially great for a formal event. While it's featured in Off White/Gold above, it also comes in Coral Pink/Gold - both great colors for spring, summer, or fall!

    Black by Blush C320 is all about lovely lace! It's a strapless cocktail dress with a modified sweetheart neckline constructed of thick netting and overlaid all over with gently beaded lace appliques. This is also a great dress for a formal event, but could also easily be dressed down for a night out with friends, too.

    We hope you love these white dresses as much as we do! Whether for a summer party or Homecoming, these looks will have you looking on-trend, with all eyes on you.

  • Laura Marano's Guide to a Perfect Homecoming

    Homecoming Season is here! To ensure your special night goes perfectly, Twist Magazine recently chatted with Laura Marano, star of shows Without a Trace, Back to You, and Austin and Ally. Why did Twist catch up with Laura for a little Homecoming advice? Because she definitely knows a thing or two about getting dressed up for formal events!

    laura-marano-homecoming-style

    Here's the tips she revealed to the magazine to make sure your night is perfect:

    1. Be confident: "I think the most important tip is to wear what you feel comfortable in. If it's not 'in' — like the current trend or style — but you still love it, you should 100 percent wear it. I think if you love a dress and you feel comfortable in it, then that's the dress for you."

    2. Consider your dress' length: "I think homecoming and winter formal dances [call for] shorter dresses. Prom is a big long dress scenario," the Austin & Ally star explains. "At the same time, if you're like me and love to dance at parties, you want to make sure the length is appropriate. There's nothing like having a super-short dress and being uncomfortable all night in it — that's actually the worst thing ever. So even though homecoming dresses are fun and short, make sure you feel comfortable with the length."

    3. Have fun dressing up: "My school has a certain homecoming theme, and I think you can always have fun with a theme," Laura says. "For freshman year we had H2-Homecoming — it was a water theme. I wore a Betsy Johnson dress that reminded me of a mermaid. I thought it was awesome because it kind of went with the theme."

    We especially love the dress she's wearing in the above picture, because it's a perfect look and length for Homecoming, just as she recommends. For a similar dress for your Homecoming dance, try Tony Bowls TS21312. It's a chiffon short a-line cocktail dress with illusion cap sleeves and bateau neckline.

    Tony Bowls TS21312

    Why else are we loving Laura's look and advice? Because she's a Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF ambassador! What a great cause to support, and with Homecoming and Halloween season here, we're supporting her all the way!

  • Steal Nina Dobrev's Ombre Style!

    It's Fall, The Vampire Diaries Season Premiere was last night, and The Originals' had their show premiere earlier this week! We are most definitely back into the Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder, and Paul Wesley spirit!

    One thing that we're always loving is Nina's style. Not only does she wear some killer styles on The Vampire Diaries, but she never disappoints off-screen, either. Seventeen Magazine posted a picture of Nina all ready for the Fall months, wearing a leather jacket and purple ombre jeans that we're totally crushing over. She looked so chic, and we just can't get over the ombre look!

    Dave_and_Johnny_8725

    For a cute short purple ombre look for Homecoming, we love Dave & Johnny style 8725. The dress has spaghetti straps and an exaggerated sweetheart neckline. The jewels and elegant beadwork all throughout the bodice gives the dress such an opulent look.

    La Femme 17004

    For a deep to light purple bold look like Nina's jeans, it's all about La Femme style 17004! It's a gorgeous ombre chiffon gown with criss-cross designs across the sweetheart neckline. This simple and elegant dress lets the ombre speak for itself, the same way that Nina let her pants speak for themselves by pairing them with a plain black shirt and jacket.

    Jovani 6432

    For a fun and sparkly look, we're obsessed with Jovani style 6432. It's a strapless ball gown with a mirrored sequin bodice and ombre skirt. It's a perfect way to really have a stand-out look!

    Since the end of last year, hi-low dresses have been trending worldwide.  These flirtatious frocks feature a circular hemline that hangs low in the back and high (usually above knee level) in the front.  Since this style allows your legs some freedom, it’s perfect for a day strolling around town or a night on the dance floor.

    Hi-lo dresses have become a popular summer trend for casual wear and have been spotted on celebs walking the red carpet at formal events.  The hi-lo skirt is so versatile it seems wearable for any occasion.  A simple hi-lo dress with a belt can be worn with sandals and a floppy beach hat for a glamorous summer look, while a frivolous version with a bit more flair can be paired with sexy stilettos for any formal event.

    If you’re a fan of the hi-lo dress trend, there’s no doubt you’ll need the best style this Fall.  In order to rock this look for Homecoming 2012, make sure you find the perfect fit for you.  If you want to show off a lot of leg, aim for a hi-low dress with a ruffled skirt, which will act like an elaborate frame as you strut your stuff.  Going for a simpler, more classic look?  Check out an A-Line hi-lo dress that hangs delicately from your body.
