Red Denim

Colored denim is a hot trend this year, and red jeans are showing up everywhere. When I first saw them, I wanted to try it but I thought they might be too bold for me and my muscular legs.  But the second I put those red jeans on in the dressing room, I was in love. I bought the darker, muted color and can't seem to get enough of them.

Red jeans aren’t as scary as they might seem. After years of pretty much living in blue jeans, I’m enjoying having some variety in my wardrobe and am looking for as many colors as I can get my hands on.

If you’re considering the trend but haven’t decided to commit just yet, here are some tips for wearing red jeans so that you will be stylish and comfortable.  Tops that look best with red are neutrals. I often pair white with my red jeans. Black, navy, camel or gray will work too. I love navy and white with red jeans for a classy, nautical look.

Either silver or gold accessories work with red jeans. If you are wearing a scarf or other colorful accessory, stay away from red or any other bright colors. It’s probably best to stick with neutrals that play into the rest of the outfit. The red jeans are enough, you don’t want to do a lot of other red pieces.  If you aren't sure about colored denim, try cobalt blue - it's a color but its still close enough to natural denim.

Blouses, I love them… whether it’s patterned, sheer, printed, buttoned or bowed - I can’t seem to get enough.  There are so many new emerging style trends that take these pieces from classic to fashionably forward and fab. 

This fashion season it's all about the most daring, bold prints - from hypnotizing geometric prints to lovely cute flowery prints to panther and parrot prints.  I highly recommend you enrich your wardrobe with some stylish, trendy chic print outfits that will help you make your fashion statement and be right on trends this spring/summer. For some amazing inspiration check out my favorite online sights: Nasty Gal, ASOS and Top Shop.

I paired my neutral print blouse with my fav. skinny jeans and my current favorite boots by Steve Madden.  The look is effortless and clean and very comfortable for everyday.  Embrace your inner fashionista and sport a bold blouse.

Spring Fresh

The latest spring verdict is in. This season the trend continues with a high-octane dose of flower power, and FW is definitely okay with this. High fashion isn’t waiting for April showers to bring May flowers. Floral prints have been blooming all over the runways this spring in infinite colors which make this print even more eye-catching. It is bold and it is, indeed, beautiful. From soft, pastel bouquets to bright explosions of flowery delight, this is one trend that simply screams spring. Women everywhere are eager to sport this flattering, feminine style.

I have really been embracing this feminine movement by experimenting with different patterns, colors, fabrics, and accessories. I have picked up this cute frock from H & M and it fits to perfection. It can easily be dressed up or down, which is why I love the versatility of this fresh trend so much. Play up your favourite blossom with patterns of roses, tulips, or daffodils and join the floral love affair.

White Staple

There are certain items that are considered staples for our wardrobes because of their versatility. The crisp white button down has been a classic wardrobe item for a long time and can be styled in so many fabulous ways. This style of blouse has made endless appearances on the runway and will continue to grace the fashion world for years and years to come. I absolutely love this ultra chic and conservative look and took my own spin on things with flared denim and a tight white chemise.

I have invested in quite a few of these stark white dress shirts, because obviously, this closet staple will never go out of style. However, as of late, they are experiencing a heightened popularity, which greatly pleases the office diva in me.

Even though the concept of a crisp white top is very simple, you can showcase a huge assortment of styles through different designs, lengths and with accessories. The range of designs, plus their naturally unadorned state, makes it possible to wear them with an array of different bottoms.
