OMG – your lips are NAKED!

011912-Charlize-Jessica-400

Nude lips are the beauty style statement of our time. They’ve officially transcended from a trend into a new classic. Originally applied to downplay the rest of the face when a dramatic smoky eye, lengthy lashes or a major blush moment took center stage, they’ve now officially stolen the spotlight. And believe the hype: Whether you’re fair and blond like Charlize Theron or have a medium complexion like Jessica Alba, they really are universally flattering!

Leather – in the Summer?

So as the seasons transition we think of putting away all the heavy materials like your furs, cable knits, and leathers. But this season, that is all about to change.

Leather is becoming a huge part of this seasons summer must-haves. Shorts and skirts are turning towards a chic biker look and becoming a classic piece that is a must have. Now don’t be scared ladies, leather doesn’t always have to give off the appearance of a rough sexy biker. You can always pair leather with a chiffon top or light blouse and you can look very feminine and romantic. Leather is going to be very important so be on the lookout for a piece you can incorporate into your wardrobe.

Stripes, Ahoy!

This season, stripes are the talk of the town but I am not talking your traditional navy and white nautical stripes. While those are classic and chic, this season is all about mixing it up. Stripes are now used with sheer material and even in neons!

The same old horizontal stripes are going out the window because now we are seeing geometric slits that appear to be stripes. These stripes, if placed right, can have a slimming effect in appearance so don’t be afraid to try these new styles ladies. I have added a few pictures of different ways we are starting to see stripes for the summer!

 

The “Urban Jungle” Trend

 

This look is sweeping stores by storm this Spring, and I think it is going to be big in the fall as well. Michael Kors has evoked this look in his Fall 2011 as well as Spring 2012 designs and women all over have taken to this look very fast. Urban Jungle is a trend that pairs khaki, utilitarian styles that are perfect for trips and vacations. The look of urban jungle can be achieved many ways but you do not want to overdo it or you could end up looking like a big grocery bag! Keep this look simple. Add a khaki blazer with a deep colored bottom like a sage, brown, or even taupe colored bottom. Find one key piece that seems tribal and use simple concept pieces to build an urban jungle look that is perfect for you!

Boot Glams

 

As Summer quickly approaches I see more and more unique, strappy, fun heels. So I have been in search for the perfect pair but I cannot wear these really tall, sky high heels I have been seeing in EVERY STORE! I found the perfect solution to look unique but still have the heel you want and that is BOOT GLAMS!

I found this product through my granddaughter actually and it is funny because she had the CEO of Boot Glams come speak to her fashion trends class about their product and when she came home and I told me I was amazed at this product. It works for any woman, any age. The concept is you basically take any heel or boot that you already own and you tie this adornment of feathers or jewels around the ankle and you have created and ENTIRELY DIFFERENT SHOE!!! Here are some pictures of what they look like on and let me tell you ladies, this is perfect for any occasion and any season! You can even put these over a simple pair of flat sandals! So if you are like me and enjoy unique, sexy shoes but you like the idea of customizing your favorite pair then you must try these. You can go to their website and see the styles at bootglams.com.
