So we have been saying it all year but in case you didn’t listen, now is officially time to wear white. And if you know us at all then you know how much we love rocking the white trend with a little self tanner and bold gold accessories. Now while we encourage our clients and friends to embrace white all year long, we do have one rule about when NOT to wear white. No, it is not after Labor Day and before Memorial Day ladies, it is when you are a guest at a wedding. This is the only time we say wearing white is a NoNo. This is the time for the bride to shine alone in white. And this year, the wide array of gorgeous wedding gowns they are showing for brides are simply stunning. The trend is a little more simplistic than in previous years but nonetheless fabulous and gorgeous. Sexy backs and streamlined silhouettes are very hot right now. As well as gowns with a fresh, and romantic vibe paired with a bold headpiece. And speaking of wedding gowns, WHOA BABY! Did ya check out Kim Kardashian’s gown this past weekend? More gorgeous than her last wedding gown and probably ten times as much with an estimated price tag of….. $500,000 DOLLARS!!!! Her Givenchy Haute Couture gown did not disappoint all her loyal fans who were waiting with baited breath for a glimpse of the reality star as if she were the Princess of Wales. So like we always say wearing white is always a “DO” except when it’s someone else’s time to say “I DO”!!!
Kim Kardashian as Kanye’s bride!
At the Billboard Awards this weekend there were a lot of style DOs (or DUOS as we like to call them) and a lot of DON’TS! Check out these pics and let us know your thoughts..
A simple but sexy LBD on Jordin Sparks is a DUO!
Carrie always has such great style, so one DON’T here and there is ok. This look is too overpowering, tacky and just wrong for her!
Kendall and Kylie were both DUOS last night. In just the right amount of sexy ensembles, they stunned on the red carpet!
Iggy Azalea’s red gown was a DON’t but JLo’s was a bit simpler which made it a DUO!
Sorry Shania Twain, it’s almost June! This gown looks way too wintery! DON’T!
Liz Hernandez looks cute, fresh and Summery in this great shorts ensemble “DUO”.
Nowadays a gal aims to be a stylish mom and “A GOOD WIFE”!
Growing up in the ‘70s and the ‘80s, we here at The Style Duo, were big fans of many of the sitcoms that ruled TV land back then. It was before reality shows took over and housewives and pregnant teens reigned supreme on the tube. And little fashionistas like ourselves, got inspired by the styles of the TV moms that dressed in ways so representative of their times. We can remember being in awe of the crazy wild tops and bell bottoms that Carol Brady (from The Brady Bunch) wore. And we were so impressed yet intimidated by the professional and heavily shoulder padded suits donned by Angela Bower (Who’s The Boss). Today, even though sitcoms are a fading phenomenon, shows like Modern Family and The Good Wife have mommy characters with fashion appeal. From soccer mom garbs to office chic attire, TV mom styles still run the gamut and we love to try to emulate many of their awesome looks. Of course, there are some that we try hard to forget! Check out our BEST and WORST LIST of TV mom styles.
- Mrs. Brady embraced the 70′s fashions like no other! Groovy!
- Angela Bower proved “Who’s The Boss’ in the 80′s with powerful shoulder pads and a perfectly coiffed hairdo!
- A perfectly prim, 90′s style mom! Sorry Mrs. Walsh but the high waisted trousers have got to go!
- A chic and fitted coral sweater is perfect for a “Modern” mom!
This past weekend was the Kentucky Derby, otherwise known as ‘the greatest two minutes in sports”! But what makes the Kentucky Derby so much fun and different from other sports and entertainment events? It’s all the amazing hats of course!! People watching is at it’s best because it is the chance for ladies to embrace their inner Southern Belles! Pastel dresses and bold hats are on the menu (as well as a tasty mint julip)! And this year’s Kentucky Derby did not disappoint. Check out these amazing ensembles, where the hats took center stage. Oh yeah… and the horse races too!
