Who Wears the Pants??

Feminine dressing doesn’t always need to be in skirt or dress form. Zuhair Murad’s Spring 2015 collection proves that pants can be just a ladylike as the best dresses.

The intricate beading, tribal prints, sleek cuts, and deep v necklines of the line’s jackets and pants evoke the most luxurious, dreamlike, powerful silhouettes I have seen in a while. I am really drawn to the idea of wearing pants to a red carpet event in lieu of a party dress. Why let the men have all the fun? The beauty of wearing pants is the sitting situation, exiting a car, and cold shoulder problems of wearing a skirt are instantly solved. There is also something so great about the fluid lines and length of a well tailored suit that adds stature and presence to your overall look. The illusion of height is an added bonus as well. The 90’s were filled with boxy suits and over stuffed shoulder pads, but this dress take on the suit, with the right embellishments is a look that is here to stay. The jackets can even be worn over a plain sheath dress or with a tank and jeans for a night out with the girls. The possibilities are endless when working with perfectly fitted items. I have included my two favorite looks of dress versus pants below. You decide what works for you. image

White On White

Even though the rule is no white after Labor Day, I love the look of white on white and will continue to wear it after this holiday. If you only try one trend, make this combination it. The result is flawless and classic. 

I love pairing white jeans, shorts and skirts with white tees and blouses for casual and dressy looks. There is something so beautiful about crisp white jeans and a white blouse. So classy and understated. Head to toe white is a modern way to makeover your closet.

I used to be so scared of spilling red wine on my all white look, that I rarely ventured out of the house in my outfits. I have since gotten more brave and have thrown caution to the wind to be able to rock this dreamy creamy look. And it is worth it. Every time I step out in this look I get so many compliments and feel elegant and confident.

This monochromatic look is sure to please for every occasion, so come up with different combinations to easily interchange. Play with textures and cuts to diversify your whites. White on white can easily transition from day to night. So keep it bright and rock your white!
