  • 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

  • Winona Forever: A Fashion Flashback To The Style Icon

    Ninety's fashion has made a huge comeback this year, seeing celebs like Kendall and Kylie Jenner and Gigi Hadid rocking those ever famous 90s style chokers and goth inspired looks. We certainly can't complain, especially since the 1990s seem to be making a comeback in a huge way well beyond fashion. Just yesterday, sequels to 1990s popular movies The Blair Witch Project and Trainspotting were announced, and one of our all-time favorite actresses who we've been waiting patiently to take over the spotlight once again has done just that: Winona Ryder! The popular 1990s actress who was famous for Tim Burton movies like Edward Scissorhands and Beetlejuice, as well as Girl, Interrupted, is finally back in the limelight in a big way in Netflix's newest sci-fi series Stranger Things.

    With the comeback of both Winona and 90s fashion, we wanted to give a fashion flashback to some of the formal outfits that made Winona that 1990s fashion icon she's become known for. After all, as Vice noted in their article "The Timeless Appeal of Winona Ryder, Hollywood's Eternal Outsider," Winona was "the cult face of the 90s." See four of our favorite outfits below, and of course how you can take a cue from them for a perfect fall Homecoming look.

  • Prom 2015 Trends To Get Excited About!

    It's officially Prom Season again! All of the new Prom dresses are here, and this year's styles are just stunning. From sparkles to lace to two piece to ball gowns, there are so many gorgeous new looks to choose from that it almost makes it impossible to pick just one. While it can be hard to narrow it down to just one dress, there are certain things you can keep in mind and look out for to help narrow down your choices. One of those important 'check list' items is what's on-trend during a given season, which is what will be focused on here. There are five trends in particular that are set to be very popular for Prom 2015. If you want to ensure you're dressed just like celebrities and red carpet fashion this prom season, start your prom dress search by choosing from one of the below five trends!

    1. High Necklines

    Necklines can be overlooked at times, but they are are big contributor to framing your figure when it comes to choosing just about any outfit (from a prom dress to a work outfit to your causal every day clothes). When choosing a neckline, factor in your bust size, neck length, height, and even the shape of your face.

    High necklines have become popular lately because of their glamorous look and flattering attributes. For one, they make accessorizing easier since many have glitzy beading around the neck that mimics a necklace! In particular, look out for the high neckline halter tops that are gracing this year's prom dresses; they are considered a universally flattering neckline.

    Mori Lee 97052 High Neckline Halter Top Dress

    Mori Lee 97052 is an example of a high neckline halter top dress that would flatter just about any figure. It's a beautifully beaded high neck evening gown with a sexy open back and flowy chiffon skirt.

    2. Sheer Dresses

    Sheer dresses, also known as illusion dresses, were one of the hottest trends of 2014, and will continue to be at the top of the trends list for 2015. Sheer is all about showing off some skin in style and class, and this year's Spring 2015 dresses definitely achieve that.

    What's particularly great about the sheer trend is that you can rock the look as much or as little as you find comfortable. There are dresses that incorporate sheer from head to toe, and then there are dresses that only have sheer in certain areas, like on the bodice.

    Jovani 1255 Sheer Prom Dress

    Dress designer Jovani is all about sheer dresses this year; their Spring 2015 collection is full of a variety of sheer dresses. As an example, Jovani 1255 is a sheer dress that's great for just a little bit of sheer in a traditional ball gown prom dress look. This strapless ball gown features Continue reading
