Summer trend report: Orange

Summer is almost here and if you are feeling a little adventurous, how about rocking some orange gear this year. Orange has been labelled one of 2014’s hottest colors and this bright and fiery color was featured in numerous Spring fashion shows. 
Not sure how to rock this color, try pairing it with white or starting small with orange accessories like earrings, bags etc. The most important thing is to avoid wearing it from head to toe… too much!
Here are few of my fave orange pieces:

Will you be rocking a little orange this summer?

What I wore: Pink sheath dress

Some people don’t put much thought to their work attire as they do to their weekend attire which is fine but I am not one of those people. I love dressing up and work is no exception, a fashionista still wants to look good no matter were she is.
Sheath dresses are great for work because of their classic design.You can start with a simple black sheath dress and create different looks by layering it with blazers or cardigans on cool days.
Great stores to shop for sheath dresses are The LimitedLoft, J Crew, Banana republic and Gap. I found the pink sheath dress below from The Limited and it was on sale for 40 bucks!

I am not a big fan of the color pink but when I walked into the store this dress was calling my name. The moment I tried it on I forgot all about my hatred for pink.
What also attracted me to this dress was the the expert tailoring and fine details like the black pockets on the side.

What I wore: Black and White casual outfit

I have always wanted to do outfit posts but was a little apprehensive because I thought that it would make me appear self absorbed. My take on outfit posts has since changed since attending the Blog better Boston Style summit last weekend. I discovered that some of the most successful bloggers do outfit posts and they are far from self absorbed. I have come to realize that outfit posts are a great way to showcase one’s style and they are fun too!

My first outfit post will showcase a black and white casual outfit that I wore to the mall this weekend. The ensemble included my go to black skinny jeans, a white blouse and black and gold flats. Since it was a little cold I layered the outfit with a black boyfriend blazer.

Skinny jeans : The Limited $79
White blouse : Loft originally $49 – got it on sale for $29!
Boyfriend blazer : Club Monaco originally $249 – got it on sale for $100!

If you don’t like to wear tiny shorts I have great news for you “Bermuda shorts are in this season”
Bermuda shorts are also known as dress shorts or city shorts. They are basically short trousers that fit above the knee. Bermuda shorts are very versatile, they look great with floral blouses, white tees and even blazers for a more formal look.

Trend Alert : The pointy toe is back !

I am so glad pointy toes are back because I really could not stand the chunky platform heels. I find that pointy heels give a strong statement of elegance. To be honest with you I never stopped wearing the pointed toes even when they were out of style.
I love the way they can dress up even the most casual outfit for example a pair of jeans and a t shirt . Pointy heels go with almost everything from dresses to jeans making them a must have in any closet. My favorite way to wear pointy pumps is with a great pair of jeans and a blazer.

Below are a few good examples on how to wear pointed heels .

  • Wear your pointy heels with skinny jeans and a cardigan or blouse for a elegant daytime look. Miranda Kerr nailed it when she paired her black pumps with black skinny pants .

 

  • Pointed toes are great for short girls like myself . Notice how they make her legs look longer.

 

  • The oversize bag balances the look.
  • Pointy pumps look great with slacks and suits making them great for work.
  • I love the way Rihanna paired her pointy pumps with this off white outfit. I am not a big fan of Rihanna but I will give credit where it is due. She looks smashing in this ensemble!
  • Nude colored pumps give the illusion of long legs too.
  • Zoe Saldana paired her pointy pumps with a bright colored dress for a simple yet elegant look.

 

  • You can wear pumps with different styles of dresses from long , short, fitted and  loose.

 

  • For a more edgy look pair your little black dress with leopard print pumps.
