FLORALS: You Can Wear That!

June 6, 2014

Despite mother nature telling us otherwise, summer is officially here! This summer, designers everywhere are encouraging you to be one with nature and reflect the beauty of the blooming flowers in your wardrobe. That’s right, we’re going to show you how to don this summer’s hottest trend – FLORALS. Not to worry, these aren’t your grandmother’s florals…they’re flirtier, punchier, and sexier than you could ever imagine. And we’ll show you how to wear them from mimosa-filled Sunday Brunches to overcoming-the-Monday-blues Workdays. So keep an open mind, and let nature inspire your wardrobe with Florals galore!

FLORAL PANTS: You Can Wear That!
Floral Jeans are a great way to dip your toe, or leg, into this fabulous trend. You’ve already embraced skinny, blue jeans, so consider these just your favorite skinnies embellished with florals.  Pair with a not-so-cropped white sleeveless top and nude accessories to balance the floral. We love these rose gold spike stud earrings to give you a little edge, showing that you’re not all flirty and floral. These strong-lined rose gold stacked bangles will adorn your tan arms; the two-toned purse will take you from day to night; and last but not least, these updated wedges will show off your pedicure. So go ahead, slip into these Floral Pants because YOU CAN WEAR THAT!

FLORAL BLAZERS: You Can Wear That!
For those epic-ly long summer weekend brunches, you’ll want to be cool, comfortable, and dressed to impress WITHOUT looking like you tried too hard. This Floral Blazer does just that, by topping off a flowy summer and top and your favorite ripped skinny blue jeans. That’s the beauty of floral – you can mix and match it with edgier pieces to show off all sides of your personality.  For even more edge, we accessorized with studded earrings, rings, and even t-strapped sandals.  Top top it all off, we added a structured neutral-yet-metallic bag for all your must-have items for summer. So go ahead and swap that Chambray Blazer for this Floral Blazer because YOU CAN WEAR THAT!

FLORAL SKIRTS: You Can Wear That!

A pencil skirt gives you nice clean lines and is perfect for tucking in a great shirt.  This pencil skirt, however, will take you from corporate blaze to chic exec.  Embrace color by pairing this skirt with a pale orange silk top and blue suede pumps with gold trim to pull it all together.  Balance out all that color with a perfectly neutral summer cognac bag and some updated gold, drooping studs for some sophisticated bling.  So go ahead and show ‘em who’s boss with FLORAL SKIRTS!

FLORAL DRESSES: You Can Wear That!

Summer = Wedding Season.  We know this means needing a new outfit for each wedding since so many if your friend circle seem to be tying the not this summer!  Of course you don’t want to show up the bride, but you can definitely aim to be the “it” girl at the wedding in this floral cut-out number. The long maxi length balances out the sexiness of the cut-out detail, and the gold-tone accessories keep the focus on you and your dress.  We opted for a simple strappy sandal with a chunky gold heel – on trend, yes, but more importantly, grass-friendly.  As an ode to your friend’s marital bliss, why not sport a love ring for them and a bling-bling ring for you. That’s right, isn’t always about the bride.  So go dance your feet off at that wedding and look hot doing it in this Floral Dress!

FLORAL MIX-PRINTING: You Can Wear That!
Florals aren’t just for daylight hours – in fact, they are the perfect print that will easily take you from day to night.   This dress is the new take on the little black dress – it’s black on top, floral party on the bottom, and cropped in the middle – the perfect recipe for fashion success.  Since this dress is a statement all on its own, keep your jewelry light – simple stud earrings and a gold-link ring will do the trick. Tie it all together with these color-blocked black sandals and black crossbody clutch.  And now for the clincher – for those cool summer nights, top it all off with a black-and-white striped blazer because mix-and-matching prints are all the rage right now.  So go ahead, say yes to that date, if nothing else than to wear this fabulous Floral Mix-Print Dress!

WHY WEAR FLORALS?

    Florals make you one with nature,without having to go camping
    Florals are a nod to the little girl inside all of us,but celebrate the women we are
    Florals let you flirt, without actually flirting
    Florals may remind you of your Grandma,but will make you look like one hot mama

BOSTON STRONG T-SHIRTS: You Can Wear That!

April 22, 2013

Our hearts go out to the people of Boston and everyone who has been affected by this terrible tragedy. We wanted to show our support of the victims, and were inspired by two young Emerson College students, Nicholas Reynolds and Chris Dobens, who came up with the idea of a t-shirt fundraiser to help the people of Boston. The two students approached a Milwaukee custom t-shirt company, Ink to the People, to create t-shirts with the words “Boston Strong” emblazoned on them and chose the colors royal blue and yellow to mimic the colors of the Boston Marathon. Proceeds from the t-shirt sales will go to The One Fund Boston, the charity established by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino to help the people most affected by the tragic events that occurred in Boston on April 15, 2013.

These young students are such an inspiration. They did their part, now let’s do ours and rock these “Boston Strong” t-shirts!

BOSTON STRONG T-SHIRTS: You Can Wear That!
Support your fellow Americans and don this shirt proudly. As the Red Sox public address announcer put it – “We are one. We are strong. We are Boston. We are Boston strong.”

The T-shirts retail for $20 and $15 of each sale go to The One Boston Fund.

BOWS: You Can Wear That!

March 13, 2013

It’s that time of year again – Spring Forward! While none of us like losing an hour of sleep, especially on the weekend, we are very excited about that extra hour of daylight, the warm weather to come, and of course, Spring Fashion! Back in October, New York to Paris hosted Spring fashion weeks and teed up the Spring 2013 fashion trends. To get you excited for Spring, we’ll be bringing you the very latest wearable trends. On the runways, Kate Spade offered fun pops of color, 60′s silhouettes and bows, bows, bows. Kate Spade featured bow-ties, bow prints, bow appliqués, and bow accents on shoes, purses, you name it. Below is a sampling from Kate Spade’s Spring 2013 selection and a number of ways to embrace the bow trend yourselves! So have some fun and bow it up!

KATE SPADE SPRING 2013 BOW TREND: You Can Wear That!
From bow ties to bow appliqués, Kate Spade put a new spin on an old classic – the man’s bow-tie. Which interpretation of the bow-tie suits your fancy?

BOW TOPS: You Can Wear That!
These adorable bow tops put a playful spin on the traditional bow. From bow neck-ties to shoulder-ties, these bow tops add some interest to traditional feminine blouses. These blouses are sophisticated for work, but flirty enough for a date night. Any style works – what’s your favorite?

SIDE BOW TOPS: You Can Wear That!
If you prefer a subtle bow detail, these tops offer a trendy bow touch at the shoulder or even the hip. These tops are sweet and cute – perfect for brunch or a day of shopping.

BACK BOW TOPS: You Can Wear That!
Take the bow detail from cute to sexy with these back bow tops that show some skin with a bow-tie detail to finish the look. These tops are sexy enough for a night of dancing!

BOW DRESSES: You Can Wear That!
Sometimes bows aren’t as obvious as you would think. Choose a color-blocked bow detailed dress or a monochromatic look – these dresses add some interest to an otherwise simple dress. Mix it up a little with these dresses!

BOW EARRINGS: You Can Wear That!
Studs are a thing of the past. Bow it up with these stud bow earrings in a variety of metals and colors. If you prefer statement pieces, try on these chandelier stone earrings or these intricate silver bow detailed earrings. Put these on and we assure you – people will be looking in the right places, if you know what we mean.

BOW RINGS: You Can Wear That!
Who needs a diamond to tie the knot? These rings add bow details to stones, beads, or painted metal. In gold or silver, these rings will adorn your hand and show people you’re a gift.

BOW NECKLACES, CUFFS, & WATCHES: You Can Wear That!
If earrings or rings weren’t enough for ya, we have bow necklaces, cuffs, and even watches. Take your pick – bows are making a statement in every piece of jewelry.

BOW SHOES: You Can Wear That!
We saved the best for last – bow details are abound on shoes! Whether you like pumps, flats, or sandals, we have bow-detailed shoes for each of you! Our absolute favorite is the strappy red sandal with ankle bow detail. If we could wear these shoes everyday, we would. But, if red is not your color, try a navy satin sandal with bow detail. For some bling, we have a black sandal with gold ankle bow detail.

If strappy isn’t your style, try these gold bow or color-blocked peep-toe pumps. For a new twist on a classic pump, try these suede or patent leather pumps with ankle-back details. Last, but not least, we have flat options as well – bling bow flip-flops and ballet flats with ankle bow straps or toe detail.

We just love shoes, don’t you? There’s a reason Mr. Big proposed to Carrie with shoes. Nothing says love like shoes.

WHY WEAR BOWS?

    Bows are a new twist on the classic bow-tie
    Bows let you update your look in a fun new way
    Bows will take you back to your childhood
    Bows are a way of showing the world that you are a gift

SHOUT-OUT TO OUR READER: Yes, You Can Wear That!

March 9, 2013

YOU ASKED:

    “What type of shoe to wear with a plain black peplum dress to my brother wedding. I haven’t wore heels in a while.”

WE ANSWERED:

    Thanks for asking us if you can wear that! When it comes to a plain black peplum dress, treat it just like a little black dress! Regarding the type of shoe, it really depends on the length of the dress. And don’t worry if you haven’t worn heels in a while, there are plenty of options that will give you the height you need, without the pain!

HOW TO WEAR YOUR SHORT BLACK PEPLUM DRESS:
If you’re wearing a short black peplum dress, we would suggest a black pump vs. a black sandal. Since you’re showing some leg in a short dress, a pump better complements your look and gives you a polished look. For options, we pulled several shoes that range in heel height from 2.5″ to 4″. We’ve arranged the shoes by heel height below. Since it’s your brother’s wedding, we wanted to adorn your feet with some sophisticated bling with these crystal buckled pumps. The 2.5″ heels will give you a little height and add some sass to your step, without hurting your feet. If you want to push the envelope a bit, we also gave you a 3.5″ heel. If bling is not your thing, you can never go wrong with a classic black satin pump from Badgley Mischka. Lastly, we offered you a patent leather peep-toe pump from Cole Haan if you’re feeling frisky. While these do sport a 4″ heel, they have Cole Haan’s patented Nike AIR comfort insole and fully padded sockliner. So give it a try! You might surprise yourself.

HOW TO WEAR YOUR LONG BLACK PEPLUM DRESS:
Now if you’re wearing a long black peplum dress, you need to show some more skin with sexy black sandals! We offered you 3 different black sandal options, arranged by height. The first is a flirty black strappy slingback sandal with a 3 inch heel from Naturalizer, a shoe brand known for their comfort. The second is a color-blocked peep-toe slingback sandal with a 3.75″ heel from Bandolino. Bandolino is our brand of choice for a night of dancing! They offer great style and good comfort. These shoes have a cream heel for some pop and a little red detail at the toe for when you finally get so sit down and cross your legs to show off your shoes! Lastly, we have a black sandal with a very on-trend bow ankle strap. This sandal is from Stuart Weitzman’s bridal and evening collection. They say you can tell so much about a person from their shoes, so why not slip into these and give people something to talk about!

Remember – No matter what shoe you choose, you’ll look amazing! Have a wonderful time at your brother’s wedding!

It’s Super Bowl Sunday!!! The Baltimore Ravens vs. the San Fransisco 49ers. Brothers competing for a win. Parents on both sides of the game. It doesn’t get more exciting than this!

January 31, 2013

Award Show season is in full effect! And the red carpet is teeming with fashion. Sunday’s SAG Awards proved no different. The hot trends for the night were side parts and black dresses – it doesn’t get more chic than that. Then again, we did get some white, some navy, some color, and of course, some BLING! Take a look at the hottest looks of the night, and of course, how You Can Wear That!

BLACK SAG AWARDS DRESSES: You Can Wear That!
Tina Fey wore a timeless strapless black gown with a sweetheart neckline and a gold belt. And of course, the side part! We loved it and here’s how you can rock the look:

Julie Bowen pushed the envelope with this black leather dress with silver embellished capsleeves for a feminine touch. We loved the mixed media and contrasting detail. To get the look, but not the leather, try this dress on for size:

NAVY SAG AWARDS DRESSES: You Can Wear That!
Nicole Kidman is winning Best-Dressed for this sheer, navy lace dress with the high neckline and sexy slit. We couldn’t agree more. Navy is a nice alternative to black and really complements her skin and brings out her eyes. We found a look that is so close to the real thing that you ought to re-carpet your floors red:

Amanda Seyfried also blew us away in this gorgeous navy dress that fit like a glove and flared at the bottom for a dramatic look. Below is how you can wear the trend in 3 different ways:

Let’s not forget Jennifer Lawrence in this simple, chic navy strapless gown with layers of silky fabric. Try this look out in black – short or long:

Busy Philipps is preggers and rocking it! We love that she’s owning her pregnancy glow and showing off her sexy bump! Her look was simple, classy, and elegant with that touch of turquoise jewelry. To get the look, try on this long dress and jade necklace:

COBALT BLUE SAG AWARDS DRESSES: You Can Wear That!
Giuliana Rancic is our hero. Really, she is. We love her. She blew us away with this cobalt blue number with the side ruffle.

WHITE SAG AWARDS DRESSES: You Can Wear That!
While her co-star Julie Bowen wore black leather, Sofia Vergara wore a shimmery white dress for a classic good girl, bad girl look. For the key center strap look, try on these long and short versions:

Kerry Washington looked stunning as usual. To get the strapless white two-piece gown look, try on this dress:

BLING SAG AWARDS DRESSES: You Can Wear That!
It’s not an award show without some bling. Helen Hunt rocked a silver sequined strapless gown and Jennifer Garner sparkled like an award herself with a gold strapless gown. Now these gowns were only meant for the red carpet, so we figured you ladies could use a cocktail version. Sex it up in these mini versions:

Katrina Bowden of 30 Rock went a more subtle way with this silver embellished sheer dress. We loved the understated look of this dress and the sheer nature that lends itself some mystery. Get the look here:

FLORAL SAG AWARDS DRESSES: You Can Wear That!
Rose Byrne took a risk with a floral gown with a side ruffle that was very on trend for Spring 2013. Get a SAG Awards-inspired look with this flirty, flowy, ruffled floral dress. It’s oh-so-pretty, so give it a whirl:

SHOUT-OUT TO OUR READER OF THE WEEK!

December 29, 2012

YOU ASKED:

    “With denim, do you suggest wearing leather or suede pumps (or does it matter)? Can leather and suede pumps be interchangeable with various outfits OR do you suggest matching leather pumps with certain materials and suede pumps with other materials?”

WE ANSWERED:

    Thanks for asking us if you can wear that!

    Suede pumps are very hot right now. The soft texture of the suede complements any fabric, including denim. In fact, the only fabric that doesn’t complement suede is leather. The color of the suede, however, is important. For example, grey suede pumps match every denim wash, but black and burgundy suede pumps only match very dark denim. Shop the looks below for more ideas on how to wear suede pumps.

    Leather pumps, on the other hand, don’t match as many fabrics as suede pumps. Nude Leather pumps match every color and fabric, so go crazy with them! Leather Pumps in other colors go best with colored denim and black pants. While you can wear leather pumps in other colors with classic denim, suede pumps are much more in fashion at the moment and the soft texture of suede better complements denim than leather.

HOW TO WEAR BLACK SUEDE PUMPS:
Black Suede pumps look great with colored denim, black pants, and very dark washed denim.

HOW TO WEAR GREY SUEDE PUMPS:
Grey Suede pumps look great with colored denim, black pants and denim in any wash – whether it’s a light wash, dark wash, or anything in between.

HOW TO WEAR BURGUNDY OR OXBLOOD SUEDE PUMPS:
Burgundy or Oxblood Suede pumps look especially good with black pants and very dark denim.

HOW TO WEAR NUDE LEATHER PUMPS:
Nude Leather pumps go well with everything – colored denim, black pants, and denim in any wash.

Even if you’re not in the market for a new clutch, you may need a new sexy case for that iPad you got for the holidays. Now you can rock out your iPad in style with a color-blocked Envelope Clutch Case.

Let the countdown begin…The New Year is almost here! Are you making your resolutions? Want to start the year off fresh? We know just what you need: EMERALD GREEN. It’s bright and fresh, and the official color of 2013!

EMERALD GREEN ACCESSORIES: YOU CAN WEAR THAT!
When you think of Emerald Green, you might immediately think Emerald Jewels! Feel free to adorn yourself in the new year with Emerald Green jewelry – emerald colored stones are hot for 2013 and they’re already hitting stores. Swap your studs for emerald green studs, or add an emerald green chunky necklace to your chunky necklace collection. For a more subtle look, try on a green wrapped leather watch, a belt, or even a bangle.

EMERALD GREEN DRESSES: YOU CAN WEAR THAT!
Be bold in 2013 and rock out in a gorgeous Emerald Green dress. It’s the new little black dress with some spice. The Emerald Green dress comes in a variety of styles and shades to complement every body and skin type. Go bright Emerald Green for a fun, playful look. Or go for a deep, jewel-tone Emerald Green for a rich, sophisticated look. For a classic look, pair your dress with black heels – pumps or strappy and black jewelry to tie it all together. For a sexy look, pair your dress with nude pumps or even gold-tone pumps and coordinating gold-tone jewelry.

EMERALD GREEN TOPS: YOU CAN WEAR THAT!
To ease your way into the trend, try on an Emerald Green Top. They brighten everyone’s skin tone and really pop no matter what you pair it with. Try these tops on with your favorite skinny blue jeans, black pants, or even white if you’re fortunate enough to live in a warm climate. Go for a casual Emerald Green sweater or sass it up with a shirt made for a night out.

EMERALD GREEN BOTTOMS: YOU CAN WEAR THAT!
Color-blocking and colored pants are still very hot and will be, well into the Spring of 2013. So, if you haven’t bought a colored pant, or you want to add to your collection, Emerald Green pants and even skirts are now HOT HOT HOT. Rock these pants and skirts with your favorite white, black, or even navy shirt and you’ll look fantastic!!

SHOUT-OUT TO OUR READER: Yes, You Can Wear That!

November 28, 2012

YOU ASKED:

    “Hi, I just bought a burgundy lace dress from Dolce & Gabbana in their winter lace collection and I want to wear it to a night wedding…My options are Jimmy Choo strappy sandals in burgundy but sparkly and a Jimmy Choo very faint gold handbag or black closed Manolo Blahnik shoes with a black silk Prada bag”

WE ANSWERED:

    Thanks for asking us if you can wear that! First of all, congrats on merging two trends – lace dresses and burgundy. Secondly, your selections sound great! We love that you’re mixing materials and colors. As for how best to rock your Dolce & Gabbana burgundy lace dress, we put together two options for you to see it all come together:

HOW TO WEAR YOUR BURGUNDY LACE DRESS
For a sexy but subtle look, let your dress do all the talking by pairing your dress with your black Manolo pumps. Since the lace shows some skin, we like to keep the shoes close-toed, so good choice! Instead of going with a matching black clutch, we chose a gold and black purse with a black stone closure. As a nod to the black, we also suggest some black stone earrings to tie it all together.

OR

To spice things up, pair your sexy burgundy lace dress with Manolo Brocade pumps. Brocade is the latest trend and it is a nice nod to the detail of your lace dress. Since gold complements burgundy beautifully, wear some gold-plated crystal encrusted raindrop earrings to make you shine. Lastly, go with a silk-satin purse that can be worn on your shoulder or as a clutch with gold detail as a nod back to both your earrings and your shoes!
