Awards season has officially commenced. This weekend the Golden Globes opened up their red carpet and the A-listers came marching down in their Sunday best. It was a night to celebrate and honor some of Hollywood’s best work in television, film and music. With so many great shows on television, Amazon and Netflix the competition was fierce to say the least. For a few years now, the big screen is not the only option for great entertainment. Of course, there were some films that stood out for their numerous nominations like ‘La La Land’ and ‘Moonlight’. It will be an interesting race to the Oscars which will be held this year on Sunday, February 26th (Oscar nominations are announced on January 24th). The full list of awards season schedule can be found here.
Now on to why we are here, the red carpet fashion! It was a night of glitz and glamour as only Hollywood’s elite knows how to present. There were some very obvious trends like the always classic black, plunging and daring necklines, black and white but yellow was the winning bold color of the night. Metallics and silver were once again making waves among many actresses who wanted to bring their full on sparkle. The makeup was vampy and darker. There was definitely variety on Sunday night as some went lighter and natural with the makeup and others went with a bolder lip. It seemed like every shade of pink was also a fashion trend but our favorite of the night was Lily Collins (see below). We can’t wait to see what the rest of the award season red carpet will be like for 2017. Congratulations to all the winners. Fashionistas, what a way to start the new year. We want to hear from you and what were some of your favorite looks of the nights. Yes, there were also some bad ones (Nicole Kidman, Sophie Turner, Felicity Jones). Here are our fashion winners!

Is it a turtleneck? Does the choker piece come with the top or are they separate? Well, for all those that are lovers of the choker, that infamous 90s trend – here is something sliding up on the trending charts. We are seeing more of the choker tops making a big wave. This look is quite versatile since you can easily wear it to the office with slacks or a pencil skirt. On the weekends, all you need is your favorite pair of denim jeans and you are all set. Long sleeves or sleeveless, in jumpers or a dress the choker top automatically gives you that statement look without having to look for an additional accessory. To have the outfit already come with a neckpiece through the cooler fall months, well that’s a bonus in itself! Celebrities have already been seen everywhere donning this look and it’s caught the eye of top brands and stores. Are you ready to get on board with the choker top this season?

Another day, another Vogue cover, this time with ‘it’ model Gigi Hadid closing out the year as the cover girl for Vogue Japan’s December 2016 issue. The looks were retro with a perfect cat-eye eyeliner that could give Adele a run for her money. The bouffant is reminiscent of the hay days of french beauty Brigitte Bardot. A beautiful editorial most of which was done in black and white and with Gigi wearing lots of lace. It felt romantic and edgy and most of all timeless. The shoot was shot by Luigi and lango. The photos are seductive and sexy but with an elegant vibe. Gigi has definitely had a huge year with Vogue and many other magazines she’s covered including not one, but two Vogue Paris covers. When sharing her Vogue Japan shoot on Instagram she mentioned this was one of her favorites. Well, it definitely stands as one of our personal favorites too. It goes to show that September issues don’t necessarily produce the best, creative photographic stories. How do you like this photo spread?
October is not only the official month of fall and its fashion, but also National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. So today we combine both by telling you of a couple of ways you can combine shopping with a great cause. Back in February of 2016, designers presented so many trends together with some classic styles that we are all very familiar with. The color pink for autumn/winter was a big recurring color on the runway. That’s right, pastels and the color pink especially are no longer just fashionable for spring and summer. A polarized look that we saw was the use of romantic pale pink hues with dark black noir – think lace, ruffles and leather.
Now if you’re looking to shop for a cause, then we recommend the Angela Roi Sunday Mini Pink (limited edition) handbag. This fabulous mini crossbody is selling for $165 and 50% of the sales will be donated to Living Beyond Breast Cancer. The bag is made of vegan leather and is designed in a wing shape and a with a classic aesthetic making it easy to wear from day to night. With a pop of color this bag makes for a great year-round alternative.
Every season there are a few style details that may start on the runway but are trending all over the street style scene. This past summer it was the off the shoulder or cold shoulder trend that was quite popular with the ladies. At one point it was impossible not to see fashionistas showing off their shoulders with a 90s style choker. It’s no secret that the fall season brings with it some of the best fashion trends. What we are loving right now is the bell sleeve and what a statement it makes.

From modern to classic with a twist, if done right, it makes leaves quite an impression. Who said a sleeve can’t be sexy! If you find the right dress with a bell sleeve (long or three-quarter length) there goes your one fashion-forward detail. Yes, go ahead and find a top with a bell sleeve to wear with your favorite pair of jeans and accessorize it with your favorite fall accessories. We are obsessed and we recommend you try it! So today we leave you with some ideas and inspiration on how to use a bell sleeve as your statement piece for this fall. Any takers?
