COZY TURTLENECKS ~ FALL 2010

Every season come with new spirit and new trends. For the  upcoming Fall 2010 season, we will  witness a lot of new fashion trends in womenswear, one  being the Turtleneck trend. This trend is extremely versatile, easy to wear and chic. Layering your outfit with a bold turtleneck will definitely give you a high impact.  Turtleneck dresses are a key piece to have during fall/winter months as they provide protection from cold yet pose and exquisite look.

ONE-SHOULDER TREND

 One-shoulder is definitely better than two this season! According to Moriamo Oshodi, Womenswear Head Buyer at Asos.com, the look’s “funky-meets-classic edge, translates for seasons to come.” Runways were awash with sassy styles, from Versace’s many bold, colorful pieces in everything from leopard print to huge shoulder bows, to Alexander McQueen’s short sharp shapes. Balmain, Balenciaga, Issa, Ungaro, Sophia Kokosalaki and Calvin Klein also embraced the trend. Shout out to my fashionistas below for rocking this trend proper.

PS – Did you get your ticket to our May 27th Sex & The City Party yet? If not, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!?!

This is a super cute outfit for a nice summer day on the patio. The shorts are from American Eagle paired with a Steven Alan Heddy Shirt and these killer MAJE suede cutout wedges.  Throw on your sun shades and a cute fedora and you are good to go! Pictured below is Shannae looking as cute as ever…you worked this one out girl 🙂

SATC2: THE WARDROBE

Costume vixen Patricia Fields returns to dress the ladies for SATC2. Every time I see new photos surface my heart leaps and it’s definitely because of the accessories but more specifically the SHOES. Pat has this amazing art to make clothes and the characters come to life by pairing them with the appropriate shoes & bags. I’m in love with Charlotte’s pink skirt suit, it’s like Business Woman meets Barbie.

The fashion in this year’s movie is like Disney’s Aladdin meets Manhattan … Turbans,hammer pants, gladiator heels etc…

I love the fact that they recycled Carrie’s Dior newspaper dress from season 3 but the Louboutins that Pat paired with this dress is like make-up to the feet. Sex and the City 2 Cast Wearing 80’s inspired Costumes.

UP CLOSE & PERSONAL WITH SARAH JESSICA PARKER

Elle’s fabulous creative director Joe Zee sits down with SJP to discuss  her fragrance (which smells really wonderful BTW), but also her beauty routine (au naturale) and Twitter (she thinks it’s changing people’s attention spans). After watching this interview with SJP, I realized that she is just a normal woman (really down to earth), not some otherworldly fashion faun. I love SATC and I love her as Carrie but knowing that she’s who she is day-to-day makes me love the series and all its blockbuster glory, even more 😉 SATC 2 is out on May 28th in the UK / May 27th in Canada & USA ,  can’t wait to see it!

THE STRAW FEDORA

With summer just around the corner, ladies it’s time to get your hat game on point. Summer hats are both practical and stylish. We often see models and socialites flaunting new range of summer hats in parties however with the hat trends changing every year the one hat which is the undisputed leader are the straw fedoras. (My personal fav!) This Hat can be worn with everything from destroyed denim & a tank to a ruffled bikini. Shout out to my girl Adee (pictured above) & Desire for being true stylistas.  Pictured below (from left to right) is Beyonce, Eva L & RiRi rocking this trend. It is a summer accessory that a true fashionista must have ;-D

MAN UP & PUT YOUR BEST FOOT FORWARD

Still think your ballet slippers are the perfect pair of flats? Think again. For spring 2010 we’re putting away our dancing shoes for the super trendy Brogues also known as oxford shoes. Brogues are a quintessential piece in mens’ shoe closets but they aren’t just for men. Women are embracing this menswear classic, pairing them with anything from cuffed jeans, to skirts  and dresses. They are comfortable and will add a touch of masculinity to your style giving you a vintage look thats adds character. Celebrity fashionistas Sienna Miller (pictured top left) and RiRi (pictured top right) have been photographed sporting this look. I personally adore these classics.
