Style Watch: Printed Suits

runway-red-carpet-real-way-prada-nanette-lepore-warehouse-printed-suit

The printed suit is everywhere this season. Wear the blazer and pants together or separate and create many different looks! However, there are a few things to keep in mind when putting together a printed outfit to prevent looking like bad gift wrap.

The Printed Suit Styling Rules:

  1. Make sure the pants are fitted. This shouldn’t be too hard to stick by, since most printed pants in stores now are cut similarly.
  2. Choose a soft and sophisticated blouse in a solid neutral color to pair with the pants.
  3. Make sure the jacket fits well but isn’t too tight. It’s best to have a little room to move around.
  4. Keep accessories to a bare minimum and hair pulled back and out of the way. You want to give off a polished finish that offsets the wilder print of the suit.
  5. That goes for shoes and clutches as well, keep it really simple.

But absolutely, under no circumstances, forget to wear heels. OK, ready to steal this look from the runway?

Check out fashionista Olivia Munn, seems she follows my creed of ” it doesn’t matter were its from, if I like it, I will wear it and wear it well.”

The dress Olivia is wearing is from Kmart and less than 25$. Shirt dresses are cute and comfortable. They add a little more structure and polish to a look as opposed to maxi dresses. I love the print on this one and it can be wore so many ways.  If you want the look for yourself hit up Kmart get it and hey they may have some other item you like and the price wont make you guilty! lol

Style Watch: Printed Sunglasses

The #1 summer accessory is are the Shades! Lately, sunglasses are getting very unique and out of the box.  If your in the market to make your shades stand out you gotta pick up a pair of printed sunglasses! These sunglasses by no means are meant to replace your classic glasses  (wayfarers, cat-eye & aviators) but the would be a great addition to the family.

Don’t understand the printed sunglasses trend? Think of it like this: Sunglasses are an accessory and just like we have statement necklaces and rings… sunglasses are no exception!

Normally, food and drinks don’t inspire me to do a fashion post… but my boyfriend is a self proclaimed juice connoisseur and was so excited about Ocean Spays new cherry juice. While drinking it last night the rich red color inspired me to create a look. By the way the drink wasn’t that bad either.
