Wondering how to dress up the sweatshirt trend for special occasions? Kate Bosworth, seen here at the Fashion and Beauty Blog conference in NYC, shows us how in pieces from her capsule collection for Top Shop (in stores now). Kate pairs a simple cream oversize leather sweatshirt with a silver asymmetrical metallic pencil skirt, for an ensemble that is sure to earn you an A+from fashionistas everywhere. Stella McCartney awesome shooties completes this fab look!
Eva Mendes, in New York & Co. jeans and top, shows a different side of the denim on denim look by forgoing black ankle boots, and pairing them with slim fitting, to-the-calf Prada boots. Could Eva be starting a new trend! Expect to see this new silhouette in boots everywhere. They’re so chic!
Greys and blacks are a big color combo this fall. You can’t go wrong with a jeans & tee combo in those colors, but to take this look to the next uber-chic level, add pointy toe pumps and a blazer to your look (try double-breasted for a change of silhouettes). Top it off with a warm and rich color tote that will take you through fall, like Rosie Hunnington-Whiteley’s (in Balmain Jacket and Adriano Goldschmied Jeans) olive-green, Givenchy bag.
Since the holidays will be here in the blink of an eye, here are a few looks that are sure to be eye-catching!
Think you need a slight tan to carry off yellow? Think again. This holiday season try a vibrant yellow dress (looks stunning with even the ivoriest of skin) with a red lip and black pointy toe heel. With such a bold color the dress silhouette needs to be kept minimal, like Carry Mulligan’s silk strapless Christian Dior. I love how she used color as her accessories! Carry is seen here, looking tres chic, at the premiere of Inside Llewyn Davis in London.
Sheer fabrics are all the rage in Paris, and holiday events are the perfect time to sport the sheerest of sheer fabrics (see through lace and chiffon). The trick is in knowing that a little goes a long way! Victoria Beckham, looking sleek and sexy in her own designs at the LA Vogue Event, confines the sheer fabric to her sleeves and upper back. It is always wise to leave a little to his imagination.
One usually thinks of spring and summer as the time to indulge in floral prints. But this fall they are against a black background, and the effect is elegant and sophisticated. Case in point; Emmy Rossum at the Vogue LA Event, looking divine in Oscar De LA Renta. To make her dress day wear ready, Emmy adds a a touch of playfulness with a kelly green Christian Louboutin clutch in lieu of black.
Leave it to Alexa Chung, seen here at the 30th Annual Night Of Stars event in NYC, to start off with a sophisticated black Christopher Kane suit, add 2 vintage diamond brooches, and end up with a smashing, unique evening ensemble. The asymmetry of her blazer makes the look that much more novel and noteworthy.
