These thick soled shoes have resurfaced from the 1970s and are perfect for the spring time. Platforms come in a variety of styles such as sneakers, sandals, boots, and pumps. Platform shoes were all the rage in the 1970s and were primary worn for attention. These days, platform shoes are still worn to make fashion statements by bold fashionistas who wear them for their combination of added height, comfort, and trendy style. Check out how these ladies wore their platform shoes in the pictures below!
Fun and playful dresses in striking combinations are in. Celebrities are rocking vibrant colors like hot pink, emerald green, tangerine, sky blue, turquoise and many more hot colors. Be creative and try out color blocking on clothes, shoes, handbags and other fashion accessories for a fun-edgy look. When it comes to color-blocking with the right colors, make sure you only have one neon color. While it’s totally okay to rock three bold colors, only one of them should be super bright. If you are scared of color blocking by yourself then just cheat and buy a color block dress instead, its pretty simple. Pick one that works for your skin tone and personal style- and make sure all the colors flatter, not just one or two.
I really like how Shay wore sky blue shoes with her outfit. Notice how three colors should be the maximum amount of colors in your outfit. If you already have three colors on your dress, for example, then wear your dress with nude heels.
“Like any trend, color block requires care in its use. For his boldness does not become excessive, it is up to each of the choices that best matches your style.” (efashiontrend.net)
No longer are collars just a uniform part of a garment anymore, they are a important detail on dresses and blouses now. They have become an added detail to an outfit, rather than just supporting a classic white shirt. Statement collars don’t require a shirt or printed pants for definition; they’re an individual trend in the running.
The trend is focused especially on collars of the prim and polished variety (think rounded Peter Pan-style or simple and pointed) that are buttoned up all the way to the top. Celebrities such as Carey Mulligan and Alexa Chung are layering collared shirts under their crew neck sweaters. It’s part menswear-inspired, part schoolgirl chic, and the look popped up on fall 2011 runways as well as for spring 2012.
Look for lace, origami or floral printed collars for them to stand out and make a statement. So, whether you’re wearing the collar as a supporting accessory or as a statement piece in your outfit, this fabric around your collarbones will reinstate your personality.
