Printed Dressespatterne

Another way to go bold for fall? Pretty printed dresses! Go for a busy pattern for a fun look, or a plain dress with a bit of print if you want to stay more reserved. Again, make sure that when one piece that you wear is busy or has a lot going on that the rest of your outfit is toned down. Go for solid-colored shoes and bags, and go easy on the jewelry.

Trend Alert: Bare Those Bellies

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you would have witnessed the midriff trend that swooped in and took the spotlight for the spring/summer 2014 season. Celebrities on the red carpet,  celebrities on the street and even up-and-coming Instagram fashionistas are all jumping on the bandwagon when it comes to this style that seems to casually saunter in-and-out of fashion when it feels like it (think Britney Spears in her prime). Here are some of our favorite recent belly-baring looks.

Wedding Wednesday: Bridal Headpieces

Most brides spend a lot of time thinking about their dress – the cut, style, if it will be pure white or cream – the list goes on and on. But another choice, one that is arguably just as important, is what you will wear on your head.

First – veil or no veil?

If you picked veil:


Pick your veil based on the look of your dress:

Longer veils are better suited to floor-length gowns or gowns with a train. Conversely, shorter dresses look better with shorter veils. If your dress has a high neck or is a more eclectic style, a very short visor veil is a good option.

The most popular veil length is the fingertip length which goes down to (you guessed it!) your fingertips.

If you said no veil:


Many modern brides are choosing head adornments other than the traditional veil. Some wear elaborate headbands, tiaras, or pins, while others simply leave their heads bare.

Brides with long faces look better with headbands or decorative flowers pinned on the side. Brides with rounder faces are more suited to tiaras or bridal hats pinned near the top.

~~~

Whether you choose to wear a veil or a different type of head-wear, make sure it doesn’t take away from an intricately designed dress. But if your dress is simpler, your head-wear can be more elaborate!

What kind of veil or headpiece do you want to wear at your wedding? Show us pictures of your ideas in the comments!

Wedding Wednesday: A Colorful Bride

There’s no argument—a bride should be the center of attention on her wedding day. This is usually achieved by being the only person at the ceremony who is wearing a bright white dress, but lots of modern brides are choosing to stand out in a different way. With a pop of color! In this week’s post you’ll see some fantastic options for colorful brides.

These days, brides (and grooms!) are incorporating their creativity into their weddings in lots of different ways—DIY décor, fun photo booths, wacky socks or neckties, funky shoes or bright jewelry. Wearing items with a pop of color allows a bride to showcase her sense of style and get creative on her big day.

Wearing a wedding gown that’s in color is a daring choice; if you’re not fully committed to donning a colored dress, no need to worry! Try starting small; colorful wedding wraps, jewelry, shoes or handbags are all fabulous choices. With all the amazing options out there these days, you’ll have no problem finding the right colorful accessory for you!

Fashion Friday: Sexy Sleeves


Even though the weather is warming up and spring is here full force, you don’t have to resort to tank tops and short shorts just yet! You can transition easily from season to season with this new trend—long sleeves! Here you’ll see some hot fashions with sexy sleeves that are sure to make you look cool!

This is a trend we’ve been seeing on celebrities everywhere, from the red carpet to everyday life! The key to making long sleeves work for you is to make sure the silhouette of the dress flatters you. Make sure the neckline fits and the shoulders are not too broad or too tight. Since a dress or blouse with long sleeves is a statement piece, you want it to fit you perfectly!

If you’re still not sold on the virtues of wearing long sleeves in the warmer months, all you need to do is find a piece made of light material. A dress with thick, sequined sleeves is obviously more appropriate for colder weather, but anything with mesh, chiffon or lace sleeves will keep you cool in the summertime!

To check out more items with sexy long sleeves, visit our LightInTheBox Fashion Collection!
