The biggest night in Hollywood has finally come and gone. With so much fashion on one red carpet, so many trends emerged on the biggest stars. Spring/Summer looks from the hottest designers strutted down the runway, and got us in the mood to go shopping. With Spring right around the corner, the trendsetters of the night can help you pick what you’ll be wearing for the next few months.
White Is Right:
If you’re looking for a fresh start, take a cue from some of the night’s biggest stars. Charlize Theron and Jennifer Lawrence, both in Dior Haute Couture, show that white can be even more versatile than black and so much more stylish too! Work with silhouettes that flatter your figure. For a clean chic look, work with simple lines and uncomplicated geometrics. Charlize polishes the look with studded earrings and her pixie cut.
For a softer look, try Jennifer’s take on white. The romantic ruffle brings the drama without being overpowering. Her gown is probably more dramatic than you’re PTA meeting dress code, but by picking something bold and unconventional, all eyes will be on you. Be sure not to over style, and opt for the fresh up-do and minimal accessories to finish off the look.
Shimmer Like A Star:
Oscar Night showed all of us that a little shimmer go a long way. Jessica’s sweet and sophisticated Armani Privé is enhanced by her clean and fresh personal style with uncomplicated makeup and an easy hair curl.
If you are more daring, try to harness the untamed spirit that Naomi embodies. In custom Giorgio Armani, her attitude commands attention. Pairing her great gown with simple statement jewelry and a messy updo, her look makes her look comfortable and in charge. You can take style tips from both of these women, no matter where you are in the style spectrum. By adding a little dazzle into your wardrobe, you can be the show stopper the minute you walk on the scene.
Blue is Beautiful:

Girls just want to have fun, and who knows that better than Quvenzhané Wallis and Reese Witherspoon? Picking eye-catching shades of blue, they were the belles of the ball. While Quven (in Giorgio Armani!) showed us that every little girl deserves to be a princess, Reese gave us the grown-up version wearing head to toe Louis Vuitton. By deciding on a dress that helps accentuate your best qualities, people will be sure to notice your spunk and individual style. Pair it with fabulous jewelry or a princess dog purse, and watch your party dreams come true.
Silver Lining’s Playbook:

Every girl has a LBD, but every girl needs a knockout gown. Why not take a cue from any of these stellar gowns we saw walking down the carpet? Silver can be a flattering on many skin tones and the options are endless. Using strong lines to accentuate your body’s natural shape can add svelte movement to any look. Add to the look with the chic up-do and wear minimal jewels to your next outing. You’re sure to get a standing ovation just for arriving.
If you are looking to stand out from the crowd, try a resort look! Bright cruise colors can look good on almost anyone. When you know what works for you, people will be asking you for fashion tips. Jane Fonda in Versace proves you can still work a room at any age. Working with her proportions and the mixing of trends, Jane works canary yellow to get our full attention. If shoulder pads and gold boning is too bold for you, try something like Kerry Washington’s Miu Miu gown. A simple sheath dress can go a long way, especially paired with jeweled beading. Picking bright yet flattering shades to your skin tone will add that extra pop that you need to work a room. Make sure to wear it with complimentary jewels and hair that you feel comfortable in.
Whatever your style may be, our Oscar Red Carpet shows us that it’s never too late to play dress up. Take any of these ladies style cues and you’ll be in the running for ‘Best Dressed’ of your next office party.
