White Dresses

Now that the warm weather is finally on its way, it is time to take your white dresses out of the closet (or go out and purchase a few!). White dresses are a spring essential and they can look good at any occasion from the beach to the club.

“White is more inviting than black. You can play it up any way you want. Plus,
it’s more feminine and girlie” – Kristin Cavallari

Here are some tips for wearing a white dress:
1. KEEP IT BASIC – avoid wearing a white dress with dark accessories. Keep it radiant and peaceful.
2. MIX IT UP – combine a variety of different accessories from vintage to luxury.
3. BARE IT ALL – let your makeup and hair be as natural as can be. If you overdo it, you may ruin the look.

How do you wear your white dresses?

Bleached Jeans

Bleached Jeans have become one of this seasons biggest trends, and the best part is you can even make them yourself! Bleached jeans have been spotted on many stars like Nicole Richie and they have quickly become one of this seasons must have jeans. Many different designers like J-Brand, Jet and Martin Margiela have designed their own bleached jeans and can be purchased in stores.

If you are looking for a low-priced alternative, you can always make your own! Follow these steps and you can make your own pair of bleached jeans:

1. Find an old pair of jeans you do not care to ruin
2. Decide where you want the bleach to go and how you want the jeans to look
3. Carefully use bleach with either a paint brush or just pour it on the jeans, depending on your desired look
4. Put them in the dryer for a bit
5. Enjoy your new jeans!

I have yet to try this but I plan on doing it very soon! What do you think of the look? Have any of you bleached your own jeans?

Layering Necklaces

Why only wear one necklace when you can wear two, three or maybe even ten? One of the biggest trends this season in accessories are layering necklaces! This is an extremely chic and stylish look, if you do it right that is. No matter how many layers you plan on wearing, they all MUST fall at different points; this is the most crucial point when it comes to layering your necklaces.

If you are looking for a more classic look then layering two or three necklaces would be your best bet. If you want to be over the top runway style with a variety of different necklaces then make sure they work well together and that you are wearing a basic outfit with solid colors.

What do you think of this trend? How do you layer your necklaces?

Usually the jumpsuit would be something one would associate with kids; this is not the case anymore. Jumpsuits have made their way into today’s fashion scene and are slowly being picked up by many celebrities and fashionistas. Jumpsuits are going to be one of this summers must have pieces. They can create a sophisticated and nicely put together look for the wearer, and the best part is it is only one piece of clothing!

The jumpsuit is also extremely versatile. You can find jumpsuits to wear to the beach or even to the Oscars. They also come in a variety of different styles, materials and patterns. For a more glamorous look, style it up with a pair of heels and jewelry. For an everyday look, style it up with some flats and a nice purse.

What do you think of the jumpsuit style? Do you have a jumpsuit?
