Peplum forever

Peplum, my latest obsession is so wonderful, because it creates the most flattering silhouette and literally works with all body types!  Another reason I love peplum is because it is so versatile.  Not only can it be dressed up or down, but you can have a peplum top, dress, skirt or pants!  There are so many ways for you to integrate this trend into your wardrobe the list is endless and fabulous!

Black and White

Black and White was all over the Spring 2013 runways and I am beyond obsessed!  I already shared my spring uniform with you, and I have a sneaking suspicion that a lot of my spring looks will consist of this unbeatable duo.  I think one of the reasons I am so in love with black and white is because it is unexpected for spring.  It is a welcome departure from pastels and bright colors and instead introduces a visually mesmerizing contrast of opposites.  This trend is also wonderful because all the ingredients for a successful ensemble are in your closet already!

Leather is another huge (and slightly unexpected) trend for spring and I could not be more obsessed.

Best Dressed of the Golden Globes Red Carpet

Finally, awards season has arrived! Between the red carpet and the big show, it’s definitely a toss up for what I enjoy most.  This season these A-listers brought their A-game, delivering high glitz and drama on the red carpet, with high slits, red, black, sequins and cleavage stealing the show.

Nude

Nude, creams, and neutrals can now be worn year round adding a much needed lightness to your fall and winder wardrobe!  This palette is so wonderful because it truly allows you to take your ensemble in any direction allowing the focus to be on the accessories, the details of the clothes or most importantly you.  Scroll for subtle sophistication and show stopping splendor.

Light fall look successfully achieved by mixing nude and white. I also love the wide leg trouser and the embellished collar.

The piping elevates the dress, which is already perfect for any occasion and would look fabulous with thick tights as it starts to get chilly.

Peplum, nude, sequins, need I say more

Another successful white and nude combination. The gold clutch also adds a subtle splash of excitement.

Emmy’s Best Dressed

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love awards season!  There is just something so magical about the glitz and glamour of the evening making it is easy to forget the hours/days of preparation the lovely starts endure just to make it on a best dressed list–Garden of Glam’s obviously being the most coveted.  The 2012 Emmy’s did not disappoint with very clear (and somewhat contradicting) trends emerging.  From mermaid to structure to neutral to neon this year’s red carpet delivered!

Julie Bowen simply glowed in this neon Monique Lhullier show stopper. She looked fresh and fabulous!

Jessica Pare looked fantastic in Jason Wu’s straightforward and classic silhouette. And as you know, black and white is the perfect combination.

Morena Baccarin is stunning in this demur Basil Soda pewter gown. The plunging neckline is perfectly complemented by the structural pleats.

Padma Lakshmi oozes confidence in this ultra feminine Monique Lhullier gown. I also commend her on the bold choice of color.

Kat Dennings looks incredible in this red J. Mendel gown that perfectly highlights her voluptuous figure.

Allison Williams dominates her first Emmy appearance in this structural peplum Oscar de la Renta stunner!

Favorite look of the night! January Jones is awe inspiring with her bold sartorial choices! She is looks modern and feminine in this edgy Zac Posen gown.

Black & White

Black and white is a timeless color combination.  Donning this classic duo, not only allows you to exude ease and class, but putting the look together is actually easy.  Color blocking is very on trend, but can be tricky and can quickly end in disaster if you don’t have an eye for color.  Black and white is the original color block and oozes sophistication.  And because this is such an effortless pairing it allows you to mix fabric textures more freely.

perfect for way to transition your wardrobe to cooler weather. i love the intricate cropped top paired with a classic black maxi.

my approach to fall is just throwing a jacket over lighter weight garments and Poppy Delevigne executes this flawlessly
