Color-blocking was the central theme at Milly by Michelle Smith’s Fall 2011 collection. The colors were vibrant and cheerful in tangerine, orange, fuchsia, green and purple. These pieces were so gorgeous, we will be counting down the days to autumn. I loved how the jackets were cut away from the body, and the sleeve lengths fell at the elbows. The designer added bold prints in subtle colors, and they worked well alongside the vivid pi
The 4th of July is a celebration of our nation’s independence, but that does not mean we have to abandon our sense of style. Here are three looks that varies in price and style personality.
We’ll start from left to right. First we have the mid-priced outfit. It is a striped silk-blend camisole from Armand Basi, and is paired with a white skirt with navy blue embellishments and double stripes by ModCloth. Christian Louboutin white leather wedge sandals, and a red Diesel bag accessorize this look.
The second look is the lower-priced outfit, and it can be easily replicated. You might already have similar pieces in your wardrobe. It starts with a pair of Burberry oversized sunglasses, a Heritage 1981 strapless denim romper and a Wild Diva wedge sandal. The romper is the must have piece this season, and denim is right on trend.
Finally we have the third outfit, and the pricier of the three looks. Here we have an Emilio Pucci print top, and it’s accompanied by a pair of Milly sailor shorts and Miss L- Fire sailor wedge heels with stripe print designs. It has a detachable nautical corsage that is removable. The print in the blouse is perfectly contrasted with the stripes in the heel of the shoes. Stripes are also big this summer.
Hopefully you will get inspired by these style ideas. Happy 4th of July Weekend!!!
Striped tops are all the rage this season, and one of the must have trends for summer. It’s not a one style fits all proposition, you can go from sexy strapless to sporty, trendy or classic stripes to suit your mood. They are all very Parisian chic. Pair them with blue denim shorts, white jeans or a white a-line skirt. Red accessories would go perfectly if you want to go the classic route or turquoise to keep up with the color of the year in a great bag, shoe or belt. The striped trend made our Rollcall list because this nautical look is not just for sailors; civilians are ready to come on-board. If you’re not heavily into stripes but want to remain trendy, try getting the look with a scarf to accent your outfit.
