Inspirations of Style : Color Block

Inspirations of Style

 Color Block

The newest trend for this spring is color blocking with bold color combinations such as red & hot pink or yellow & bright green. While this new fashion statement may be too bold for some or not appropriate for a conservative workplace, adding color-block accessories is a great alternative. Color blocking can be casual or elegant which is usually determined by the color scheme and styles.

Weekend entire is a great place to introduce a key piece or two using the bold color combinations of pink, orange and blue thru an accessory like shoes, bags, or jewelry.

CLICK HERE:  3-pack Color Block Necklaces, Marni for H&M $49.95

CLICK HERE: ZAHARA BIB NECKLACE, Stella & Dot $248

CLICK HERE: Colorblocked Tote, Forever 21 $19.80

 CLICK HERE: Silvana 2Bag Colorblock Tote, Fendi $2130

Another great way to stretch your money and versatility of your wardrobe is to color block different articles of clothing like a fuchsia skinny jeans with an orange blouse tucked in and nude wedges. You might not need to buy anything at all …just search the back of your closet!

 

If you want wearable work pieces I would stick to muted color blocking on a great tote or tailored dress keeping the rest as simple as possible.

CLICK HERE: DKNY Colorblock Sheath Dress, $345

CLICK HERE: The Color-Blocked Charmeuse Dress, Old Navy $32.94 

If you want a great color block article to keep in your closet for seasons to come stick to a great heel that you can wear to work or to dinner …my favorite is the Vince Camuto two-toned open-toe heels…. That color combination is classic!

CLICK HERE:  Vince Camuto Bello Grey Mint Combo , $129

CLICK HERE: Linya2 by Boutique, Piperlime $140

CLICK HERE:  Darcy by Loeffler Randall, Piperlime $395

I really love to hit affordable stores for fun accessories and great staple items that I can wear to work & on the weekend. New York & Company has some great pink & red color block options at affordable prices. Their simple and structures cuts really make this trend fun but not loud and these style inspirations show how to use accessories to compliment your outfit & add to the color block movement.

CLICK HERE: Tulip-Sleeve Top & Pink Pencil Skirt , New York & Company each $34.95

CLICK HERE:   Solid V-Neck Cardigan & The 7th Avenue Sateen Slim Crop & Patent Leather Skinny Belt, New York & Co.

Another great option that combines two fashion statements of the season: Yellow & Color Block… keeping the yellow toned down with white & black is the perfect way to add one bold color into this fashion trend & still look effortlessly chic!

CLICK HERE: Solid Charmeuse Keyhole Neck Blouse & Black & White Ponte Colorblock Skirt, New York & Co.

There are so many ways to color block you can’t go wrong! Have fun!!

Inspirations of Style: Bangles and Stackable Bracelets

Bangles & Stackable Bracelets

 

Stackable bracelets and bangles are very trendy right now and come in various textures, gems and colors that are usually the perfect finishing touches to any outfit. I love color and am never afraid to wear it but sometimes its more fun when your accessories pop and become the eye-catching item of your outfit. Every store, from the cheap & trendy to the expensive & luxurious, carries beautiful arm candy to fit your personality.  If you wear the right outfit, these trendy jewelry options below will look ten times more expensive than what you paid!

CLICK HERE: Etched Rhinestone Bangles, Forever 21 $7.80 

CLICK HERE: Enameled ram bangle, J.Crew $98

CLICK HERE: Vintage Crystal Bangle Bracelets, Target $19.99 each

CLICK HERE: KATE SPADE NEW YORK PUTTING ON THE RITZ HINGED BANGLE BRACELET, $99.19

There are excellent pricey options that will give that same fashionable look but will become collector items in your jewelry box and will one day be passed to your daughter like Chanel’s 2012 set of 4 glass stone cabochon bracelets that just might be worth that “mortgage payment” price tag.

CLICK HERE: Set of 4 Glass Stone Cabochon Bracelets, CHANEL 2012

Maybe your jewelry box already has some bracelets you can work with & you don’t even have to spend a dollar!!  Fashion is about using your imagination & digging thru your closet…not always your wallet!

 

Happy Jewelry-Box Hunting!!

Twenty Dollar Trendy March 2012

I love when Spring it just around the corner and color comes back into the mall and on us again! I know every girl can’t get enough of black, white & gray but after a dreary winter we need to cheer up & spruce up our wardrobe! I am loving the bold colors for this spring & summer but sometimes it is just too harsh without a pattern. This H&M dress for under $20 bucks is a great find & can easily transition you in style thru the spring and early summer with the 3/4 sleeves. Orange can be a hard color for many to wear, especially work appropriate without looking like Halloween…. this paisley pattern is the perfect way to bring you into spring!

 CLICK HERE: Orange Paisley dress, H&M $19.95

Maybe you are looking for a cute shoe to lighten up your outfit …. for less than twenty dollars you can have comfy cute pastel coral flats with the very fashionable ankle strap perfect for the office or weekend from Forever 21.

CLICK HERE: Linen Ankle Strap Flats, Forever 21 $19.80

 

Sometimes you just need a new clutch …wallet by day & purse by night. I love this orange croco pattern from Target.

CLICK HERE: Merona Orange Croco Clutch, Target $14.99

I know a great piece of jewelry can complete an outfit but spending too much on costume jewels doesn’t seem to always be the best way to stretch your dollar … I found a great pair of earrings from Bloomingdales for $20 … I love these so much I don’t know which color is better!?! Coral or Blue!!!! For $20 buy them both!!

CLICK HERE: Aqua Blue Crystal Button Studs, Bloomingdales $20

 

Ready… Set… Shop!

Stocking Obsessions

While we only have a few months left of the winter chill I thought I would showcase a few of my favorite stocking patterns that are now so fashionable. I find wearing patterned stocking with sweater dresses and boots to be the easiest combo without looking like you worked for hours on an outfit. Although the animal print tight is very hip I can see this trend a little harder to get away with at the office, or at least maybe my office, but it’s a great change-up to your weekend sweater dress and flats outfits! I know you might be thinking flats & footed stocking? Really? But my co-worker was wearing simple black tights, a dark sweater dress and gray flats… it really worked! In a way it is a different take on the color block craze that is very in-style for Spring/Summer 2012. Kick your style up a notch and wear your sexy stilettos with a crazy patterned stocking and party dress…. Don’t tell me you won’t go by unnoticed.

 CLICK HERE: Leopard Print Sheer Tights, ASOS $17.91

I personally love the open weave look…imagine dark brown open weave tights, knee high brown leather boots by Lucky Brand and a gorgeous amethyst purple sweater dress. Throw a belt onto that outfit and be ready for your 9AM meeting at work, shopping on the weekends of dinner at a chic Asian Fusion restaurant in the city with friends. I’ll Cheers to that!

CLICK HERE:    Traditional Open Weave Tights, Payless $7.99

Another way to wear the tights-craze, thanks to Princess Kate, is to wear a simple silhouette with stocking & stilettos! You can look very polished & posh by wearing nude sheers or opaque black stocking and classic closed toe heels.

Sometimes the best way to add a pattern to your tights to look edgy but still feminine is to do a bold lace pattern or a simple polka-dot.  Black, gray and nude have all been done…why not try a bold burgundy or refreshing navy? Just make sure you wear complementary colors and stick to solids or refined patterns …you’re stockings are making the statement …and so will you!

CLICK HERE: Floral Lace Tights, Forever 21 $10.80 

CLICK HERE:  Jukebox Tights in the Pony, $34.99 

I will let you in on a great secret… Spanx now makes various patterned tights so you stay skinny & seemless while still stylish…. An investment in 1 or 2 of these pairs can keep you going…without those rolls!

 

CLICK HERE: Patterned Tight-End Tights® Argyle Diamond, Spanx $28.00

CLICK HERE: ASSETS® Reversible Shaping Solid Tights, Spanx $18.00 

 

Reversible Tights… GENIUS!

I couldn’t leave this one out…. Maternity Shareware Tights!

 CLICK HERE: ASSETS® Marvelous Mama Opaque Stripe, Spanx $20

There are so many patterned tights, from polka dots & lace to fishnets & solids sold at almost every store that it will satisfy everyone’s taste. If you are like me and are afraid you’ll put a run in those pantyhose then I suggest 2 things:

  • get your patterned stockings at a low price from stores like Forever 21 & Payless
  •  carry clear nailpolish to prevent any runs from tearing any further!

 

Happy Stocking Shopping!
