Neutral shades of fashion

A dress in neutral shades makes for a clean and classy look…

Nude pumps look great with any outfit, since they are neutral, but what about other fashion in nude?! Dresses in nude have a romantic feel to them, especially if they also incorporate lace. Accessories, jewelry, purses and sunglasses also make a great statement in nude. Check out a few pieces in this classic shade below.  Which is your favorite?!

Floral inspiration outfit

Floral prints make a beautiful addition to any wardrobe…

Pink and blue floral dress available @ Target

Besides the fact that floral prints are a perfect harmony between color and feminine style, they can also easily be matched with neutral colors to create an outfit suitable for any occasion. Flowers are a symbol of beauty and elegance, so it’s pretty explanatory why floral print makes a lovely choice. Floral dresses are a nice option, especially around warm weather. Though not all floral print fashion is bright, it still adds a feminine touch to any outfit. Black and white floral print dresses and tops look ultra chic and can easily be worn around winter time or when too much color is not your style. Shoes and purses in bright floral prints can also be the perfect accessory to contrast a neutral outfit.

Coach’s Poppy handbags are the perfect example of a feminine and floral purse. Cute around summertime and just the right amount of color to brighten a cold winter day. Coach also makes neutral colored handbags with floral accents, if that’s the style you prefer.

This Dolce & Gabbana pump has pleats and a silk floral pattern in neutral colors. It’s a great option when you want to balance a bright outfit, and add a feminine touch with these classic-shaped pumps. These heels will look stunning with a little black dress, and add to an already chic look with their feminine appeal.

These dresses are a nice option for a fancy dinner, or when you want a casual look. The Elle dress is comfortable enough for a relaxing summer day, but can easily be glammed up a bit by pairing it with a nice pair of boots or stilettos. My favorite’s gotta be the Jessica Simpson one because of it’s ultra feminine silhouette and sweet floral pattern. Which is yours?!

Say hello to my Twilight dress!


I received this lovely dress courtesy of Stop Staring, and it has already become one of my favorites. The bengaline stretch material makes it very comfortable, and the sophisticated feminine look make it perfect for pretty much any occasion. I love the dotted sheer fabric which compliments the sweetheart neckline. It includes a black leather belt for your waist, with a fitted pencil skirt design that adds to the classic style of vintage fashion. Looks great paired with open-toe lace heels, or red pumps for a nice punch of color. This dress requires no accessories since the retro-glam feel to it gives it more than enough personality.

Vintage inspired dresses

Spring is the perfect season to flaunt a stylish and comfy dress.

Vintage inspired dresses define femininity with lace, floral and cinched waists. This weeks outfit features two stylish and sexy options. The floral print dress is perfect for day with ruffles and button detailing at the bust. Adding a brown heel neutralizes the look, since there is already so much color going on! Add a simple yet classic pearl pendant to complete the look. The black lace trim dress is a nice option for an evening event. It’s also cinched at the waist and the lace trim detail is just an added bonus of feminine flair! Pair it with an elegant pair of lace heels, and turquoise and gold jewelry if you want to add a touch of color.

How to style a casual dress

This warm weather has me looking forward to casual summer dresses! Maxi dresses scream femininity with a relaxed feel, usually paired with sandals or flip flops and keeping accessories to a minimum. This outfit features a floral print  cape maxi dress with a tie waist and uneven hem. It looks very laid back, but can easily be dressed up with an elegant pair of boots and eye catching bracelet; just as the model did with a print maxi dress, peep-toe heels and simple yet attractive bracelet.

Or you can keep the look a bit more relaxed by pairing a nice, crisp white maxi dress with neutral accessories and cute, yet comfy wedges.
