Electric Mix

This Fashionista boldly mixed and matched two spring trends: simple stripes and accent accessories–and the result is electric. She’s teamed a relaxed-fit, black and white Zara striped dress with  faux snakeskin wedges. These bright wedges bring some pop to the ensemble with the firey red stones, cool blue gems, and rocker studs.

For killer kicks like this Fashionista, try these similar hint of fuchsia wedges or these coral caged wedges.

Also try pairing a striped dancer dress with a lively three-tiered necklace or a striped knit cami with dangling turquoise earrings or stack on a few of these upbeat bangles.

Hint: Echo your daring accessories adventurous vibe in your beauty routine. Try a fierce red like Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour in Dragon or this Dior lipgloss in Hot Pink.

Style On,

I believe that Audrey Hepburn is one of the most beautiful, sophisticated, and stylish women who has  lived. This Fashionista has channeled the fashion icon’s classic style with a bit of a modern twist.

This Fashionista is wearing a sleek, cream-colored overcoat over opaque black tights with an adorable pair of schoolgirl ballet flats. Her classic overcoat has a stark, contrasting black ribbon, cinching the waist. This Fashionista’s spring trench has a surprising graphic pattern on the back. She has paired this black and white combo with a bold, mother-of-pearl pendent on a simple black cord.

To channel Audrey yourself, seek out feminine, youthful details like bows, large buttons, color-blocking, simple silhouettes, and high collars. Try:

As for makeup, keep your face simple, clean, and neutral with:

I have a major soft spot for the early Lady Gaga looks—midnight black, hooded leotardsDavid Bowie lightening bolt makeup, and those unmistakable banged, platinum blond tresses topped with a mini-mouse hair bow. Here are some of my favorite looks:

  • Pretty in (Hot) Pink: Gaga put her own twist on the feminine pretty in pink look in this bubblegum pink, structured cocktail dress for the 2007 Brit Awards. In true Gaga style, the dress boasts a super deep, daring V-neck and its accentuated hips make this girly ensemble a little bit more naughty than nice. Her neon pink lips and white-topped sunglasses also edge out this look.
