Something must be in the water in Hollywood because celebs are popping up (or should we say out?) on talk shows, concerts, newspapers, and magazines announcing that a baby is on board. And celebrities know better than anybody that pregnancy is not the time to deny themselves fashionable clothing and even sexy attire. They know that the paparazzi are out in full force trying to snap pics of baby bumps. It happens so often that it becomes more routine for these starlets than their gynecological appointments. We here at The Style Duo believe that all women from Hollywood and beyond should embrace this happy time and flaunt their growing bellies. So what’s in style for this Spring/Summer for expectant mommies? We are seeing lots of bright colors and fun bold prints for tops and dresses. Body hugging clothing is a fun way to show off the muffin in the oven. Paired with fitted blazers that cinch high at the waist, form fitting options look polished, simple and fun. Designer jeans are also super popular for pregnant women and top denim designers such as AG, JBrand, and Joes are showing comfy but trendy skinnies and boot cut styles at A Pea In the Pod and other well known maternity boutiques. Fitted tanks, halters and v necks look great with jeans and even denim shorts. We all know shoes can be tricky during pregnancy with swollen feet and fears of falling. Sneaker wedges and flat embellished sandals are great choices for staying on trend this season. As for bathing suits, wearing regular bikinis with the belly out for all the world to see, is the way to go. Of course most women go up a size or two on top so opting for swim separates is the best choice during this time. Most of all, preggos should wear extra sun screen and a happy glow! Congrats from The Style Duo!
We at The Style Duo often preach how confidence is the best style choice one can make! But after this Thursday we may have changed our minds. While confidence can make a girl look her best, we now realize the best style choice is charitable style. And that means giving back to a good cause, a family in need, a town devasted by a hurricane, etc. There has been alot of tragedy recently in the news and we are so humbled hearing about our friends forming groups to help those who are suffering. We can’t tell you how many of our facebook friends and close pals are doing their best to devote their time and money to those who really need the help. We at The Style Duo say that you all are “DUO’s” for reaching out and doing your part.
This week we were asked to help style a fashion show for a wonderful cause, The Epilepsy Foundation of NJ. The event was called “I Love Lulu” and we had beautiful mommies and teens model fun clothes from the boutique Femebot in Ridgewood NJ. Many local business took part in the event and it was great to see how people could come together for a common goal. The night was fun, fashionable and fulfilling! And we were so glad to be a part of it. Check out the pics with the link below and remember to get out there and do some good. You will feel more beautiful than ever!
The 42nd Super Bowl is here and football fanatics all over are as psyched for the game as fashionistas are for fashion week in New York City. And while fashion might be the last thing on the minds of the most loyal Ravens and 49ers fans, we here at The Style Duo can’t help but think about cute outfits tailgaters and ticketholders should don while attending the biggest game of the year.
Well of course wearing team jerseys are probably the best way to show support and spirit on game day, but why not choose trendy skinnies and wedge colored sneakers that are all the rage now to go with the team apparel. Since the weather is going to be beautiful in New Orleans and the game is inside the Super Dome anyway, you can even wear a team tee shirt with a very light leather jacket over it , cute denim shorts, and ankle booties. Just because the day is supposed to be about sports, why forget about being fabulously fashionable?
And for those who don’t care about wearing team clothing, cashmere hoodies, light flannels and bright colored casual dresses with a denim jacket on top are cute and comfy options. Guys too can get fashionably football ready with graphic tees or henleys , worn in slim jeans and neon sneakers.
Although we are not placing any bets on the game, we are certainly betting on a stylish halftime celebration and we can hardly wait to see the celebs and their outfit choices. Three cheers for Football and fashion!!!!
