Trends

Last night was the 2012 American Music Awards. While I didn’t get a chance to catch the full show, I was definitely tuned in for the Red Carpet. With the exception of the Grammy’s, for most music award shows celebs are less formal and traditional. Because music of the creativity that one is allowed to express through music, here is the chance to do the same thing with your style. Take a look at a few of the looks from last night.

Kelly Rowland, Jordin Sparks, Brandy Norwood

  • Kelly looked amazing in this printed dress. The design is so intricate and definitely a show stopper. Her shoe choice was perfect. She kept it simple and let the dress do the talking
  • Jordin Sparks has an amazing weight loss story. Although I am not crazy about the design on the dress, the fit is amazing
  • Brandy’s black and gold look made a lot of noise on twitter. Many people were on the fence about the entire look. I think the dress paired with different boots, or the boots paired with a different dress, she would have knocked the look out of the park

Christina Augilera, Gwen Stefani, Taylor Swift, Heidi Klum

  • It appears to be the year of the bangs. Christina showed off her curves in this very feminine ombre gown. I must say I love her hair. On the voice, the multicolored tips were a little distracting. This blunt bob is definitely a better choice
  • Gwen Stefani graced the red carpet in this amazing printed jacket and black leather pants. The leather definitely shows that Gwen Stefani has a little edge, but the jacket is what pulls the look together.
  • Taylor and Heidi both showed a lot of leg in gold/lace mini dresses. If you got flaunt it!

Kerry Washington and Nicki Minaj

  • Kerry Washington can do no wrong in my eyes. While this dress may be a little to elegant and sophisticated for this music event, she definitely stays true to her style
  • I’m glad that Nicki Minaj was not in drag or some other strange costume. While I wish she did another pose and smiled, this is the best that she has looked in a very long time. It is toned down, but because of the vibrant color you still get a feel of her personality.

Who rocked the 2012 American Music Awards Red Carpet for you?

The name alone makes people faces go :/ but many fashionistas and celebs alike love this trend. It is the perfect cold weather accessory for layering. Because of the thickness of the fur and even the length (most hit at the hip and can go even longer) fashionistas pair this with their favorite denim jackets, trench coats, and even maxi dresses. This is definitely a luxury item, even the faux fur vests can be a bit pricey.

I love how Rachel Roy and Blogger Kela Walker styled their vests perfectly!

So Rock It or Drop It? 

Here are some affordable options to rock this look

 

Wax On, Wax Off! Waxed Denim

What was that? What are waxed jeans? I’m glad you asked! Waxed jeans are just regular denim pants with a wax coating to add a different shine and texture to the material. Waxed jeans go by other names such as waterproof jeans, painted jeans, or black coated jeans as well. Waxed jeans are also very similar to leather pants. So if you want a more affordable option that allows your skin to breathe easier, then waxed jeans are definitely for you. They come in a variety of colors and I think the perfect cut would be a skinny jean or slim leg/straight leg jeans. To try the trend check out the options below.

 

There are also a number of DIY (Do It Yourself) tutorials on YouTube so check those out as well if you are in a creative mood!

 

Hello my loves! I hope you all are having a fabulous summer. It is not totally over yet, we still have a few weeks left of fun in the sun, but if you hit any of your local malls or retail stores, you will see huge clearance and sale signs because it is time to get rid of the summer merchandise and usher in new items for the fall. So my previous post focused on the Fall Trends that you can expect for 2012 but now it is time to get more in depth with a few of the trends.

One of my favorite trends this season is prints, but not just for blouses and dresses, pants as well. I have a few pairs of printed pants, but the material is incredibly thin for all Fall/Winter. One pair I can easily transition, because of the color, by pairing them with opaque tights, but the others, not so much.

The key to wearing printed pants is to pair them with a solid color top for a clean look. You can take your look up a notch by mixing prints. Make sure the prints have complimentary colors. That is key! For other accessories try a boyfriend blazer for more sophistication, or a denim jacket for a casual feel.

Will you partake in this trend?

Socialites and business women Angela and Vanessa Simmons were spotted at The Sugar Factory out in Las Vegas celebrating Vanessa’s 29th birthday.

The birthday girl paired a purple skater skirt with a black bustier, black and grey printed cardigan, and Giuseppe Zanotti heel-less wedges. Angela paired a white see-through crocheted dress with a black bra and boy shorts and black Christian Louboutin pumps.

What do you think about their looks? Should they rock it or drop it?
