New trend alert – Embellished leggings and tights

September 24th // Comment Here

As demonstrated by Gwen Stefani in her latest L.A.M.B. collection, lattice-work tights and tie-dye leggings vibrate with cool. Just remember that statement legwear is built to be worn with something simple and monochromatic – otherwise, it’s overkill. Here, a preview of what you’ll be seeing at stores like Piperlime, Heels.com and Shoes.com this spring.

Can you see these on your shopping list?

40s style – with modern flourishes

September 22nd // 1 Comment

The top-notch spring collection of designer Derek Lam, the fashion world darling, is filled with fun takes on classic, retro silhouettes. It’s also dipped in the kinds of colors that make you long for spring. I’m already craving one of Lam’s crisp striped belts – a vibrant, playful accessory that showed up on more than one runway.

Tell us: Are you loving the colors, the shoes and the nipped-in waists as much as we do?

Beauty trends we love: the ripple effect

September 22nd // Comment Here

One of the prettiest trends to take away from the shows: the cool mermaid waves shown on Diane von Furstenberg’s runway. It’s easy to replicate the effect: Simply braid your hair and let it set for an hour; then release the braids, comb your hair through with your fingers, and smooth the ends with styling lotion.

Tip: The secret to pulling off this type of deconstructed hairstyle is to make sure that the rest of your look stays perfectly polished. (A little Motives® pressed power keeps things natural and elegant.)
