SPRING TREND ALERTS

Can you believe spring is quickly approaching! If you live in Southern California you are definitely getting a feel for the heat today… so with it being 83 degrees out I though no better day then to share some of the SPRING TRENDS for 2014.

NUDE: If you were one of the millions watching the Oscars this trend should be no surprise to you! Nude dresses where a main attraction on the red carpet! Before you go out buying your new nude ensemble make sure you don’t fall into the dont’s of nude!

  • Dont’s: Don’t go for something so revealing that it exposes your butt, boobs and belly button…its ok to leave some to the imagination. 🙂
  • Do’s: Do find a nude that compliments your skin tone and that shows off those lovely curves.

OXFORD: Hopefully you kept your oxford from last season because it is back again! Try mixing it up with a pencil skirt for the office, or tucked into a strapless dress to give it some flare! There really is no wrong way to wear this button down because it goes with everything.

MODERN FLORALS: Feeling flirty? Wear this trend to work, out on a date or even to the beach! Try pairing with a sassy pair of shoes and cool accessories!

BOHO: Loving everything crafty? Are you one to put on all your accessories and add on one more? If so this is totally the trend for you! Pile on all the embellished stuff and rock it! My favorite place to shop for this trend is Free People they are boho year around!

SHEER: Try a sheer hem line or a sheer back! And yes silver accessories are perfectly acceptable with this look!

PASTELS: Consider these colors your new neutrals for spring! Pair back to back or wear them monotone! The soft pinks and blues are my favorite!

These shoes are made for walking…

This Fall is all about the shoes. So ladies and gentlemen if you are shoeaholics you are in for a special treat this season!

Let the shoes make your outfit.  We all know that Carrie Bradshaw from “Sex In The City” had a total shoe obsession. If it was a new pair of jeans or a pair of Manolo Blahniks… it was definitely the Manolo’s! So if you are going to buy a few things to style up your closet for Fall b-line for the shoe section first! From oxford booties to pointed toe pumps to over-the-knee boots to your outrageously glamorous stiletto there is something for everyone to love!

So now the question you probably all are pondering is how do you allow your shoes to speak in every outfit! Usually we get dressed by first picking out either a pair of pants (skirt/shorts) or the top and then once we have decided on that pairing we then chose the shoes. However, being that outrageous, fun, textured and colored shoes are the biggest trend this Fall try picking out the shoes first and then finding the rest of the outfit to pair with it!! Trust me you might be surprised what chic outfits you come up with! It almost reinvents your closet into something totally different. This can sometimes be tricky but also really fun. So my fellow styled right fashionistas go on and try it! Can’t wait to see what you all come up with…

How to dress for YOUR body…

20130718-022220.jpg

With hot weather brings out some interesting outfits to say the least and with this heat wave the outfits have become more unbearable than the actual heat. I have seen this first hand more than ever living in California. And I have heard my friends say time and time again “what is she wearing” and this is usually referring to someone wearing a garment that is not suiting to their body type. So I figured this was a good time to give some guidelines as well as tips and tricks on how to dress for YOUR body type!

GUIDELINES:

1. Understand your body: If you are a size 12 stop trying to be a size 6. Wearing garments that actually fit your body properly will make you look smaller. For example, if you know you have a large chest don’t squeeze into that dress that smothers them find something that compliments them.

2. Know your best body assets: This is my favorite trick when it comes to dressing different bodies! Did you ever notice in Destinys Child that each girl wore a different garment and it always showed off their best assets.

For example, have you ever noticed Beyonce wears mostly outfits that show off her legs to the max? Well that is done on purpose to give her butt the perfect look and show her other great asset her legs! Knowing your best asset(s) allows you to hunt for pieces that show off that asset.

So to figure this out stand naked in a full length mirror and look to see what looks good naked…

  • Arms: Wear a tank top or short sleeve garments and stop covering up those nice arms!!
  • Butt: Find dresses or jeans that make that butt look plump not flat. And just because you have a nice butt does not mean wear short shorts to literally show it off. Show it off with the right garment over the top.
  • Chest: If appropriate where those plunging necklines and be more conservative below.
  • Legs: Go conservative up top and show off those legs with a great pair of heels
  • Back: Go for those backless dresses and open back tops.
  • Stomach: Wear those cute mid drift tips that are such a big trend right now!

3. Know your troubled areas: Just like you stood in the mirror to find your best assets do the same to find your troubled areas. Knowing these areas will help to find garments that will disguise these. For example, your trouble area is your thighs. Even though it is hot resist the urge to buy those short shorts and purchase a pair of capris or a flowy long skirt and disguise the thighs. Wear a more light weight shirt since you will be wearing a long covered garment below.
4. Just because they make it in your size does not mean you should buy it: Not every garment is meant for you just because it comes in your size. This goes back to knowing your body and finding the best garments that show it off appropriately.
5. Being able to zip up that garment does not mean it looks good on you and fits you properly: Sometimes it’s not even the women squeezing into the dress that is too tight making their chest spill over… it can also be the skinny girl who puts on the jeans that are so tight she literally has a pancake butt.

6. Undergarments are the key: It is so important to wear the appropriate undergarments with your ensemble. I can not stress this enough that a well fitting bra and the correct underwear will make your garments fit ten times better. That means no panty lines and no rolls seen through shirts. Panty lines can be avoided with the famous “seamless panties”! And no rolls can be created by using tummy controlling garments. You would be surprised how many celebrities that have great bodies wear spanks and other body controlling garments!

7. Less is more: I’m sure many of you have heard this before! Many women have the misconstrued conception that showing off more skin makes them more sexy. But in fact it has been proven that men like a little left to the imagination.

Ok ladies… you now have all the tips and guidelines to successfully dress for your body. So remember your best assets and troubled areas and dress accordingly! I guarantee you will get more compliments than ever before and may even meet Mr. Right instead of always Mr. Wrong!!

Until next time my fashionistas! Stay styled right! xoxo FSR
