Giada De Laurentiis who loves to wear vibrant colors has been seen wearing turquoise dresses on many occasions. She was seen wearing a great turquoise dress in Greece and recently wearing a turquoise shift dress in The Next Food Network Star previews on the Food Network. The color is great for summer and shows off nice tanned skin. Giada knows the colors that look great on her and the color turquoise is especially a good color on her. This season turquoise is a big color and there are many choices for turquoise dresses so you can channel your own Giada De Laurentiis look with some of my favorite choices for this season.
One of my favorites is the Phoebe Couture turquoise cap sleeve dress for $330. The jersey dress with horizontal pleating gives the dress just the right amount of detail so that you can throw on a great pair of metallic heels and be on your way for a night out.
For a look at that is closer to the preview video of the Next Food Network Star’s turquoise shift dress Giada De Laurentiis was seen in this year’s 2012 previews check out the Victoria Beckham silk and wool shift dress for $2,135 from Net-a-Porter.
One of my favorites in the turquoise dress category is one by Diane Von Furstenberg that looks like a short sleeve shirt dress with a belt. The dress is $365 and is a dress that can be dressed up with heels or dressed down with thong sandals for the weekend. Get the dress at Net-a-Porter.
When you think of springtime purses, you typically think of pastel or sherbet bags that beckon the floral colors of spring. Weâ€™ve searched for the top handbag trends for spring and found five handbags that express different styles that might not be in your typical spring accessories closet, but ones that will put you ahead of the rest for the new season. The first hot trend for spring is raffia. Raffia is a palm-like material that we are starting to see in tons of shoes, accessories, and now bags.
Our favorite one is the Burberry leather and raffia shoulder bag for $1,295. Its tan raffia base combined with caramel leather detailing give it an exotic yet modern feel. Because of the combinations of two neutrals, this bag goes great with almost any outfit and screams â€œfashion-forward.
The next handbag trend for spring is a spin on the typical evening clutch â€“ the envelope clutch. Our choice is the ChloÃ© color-block leather envelope clutch for $450. This clutch in particular embodies a traditional trend, color blocking, and a more contemporary trend, the envelope style. The lime green has a springy punch against two different shades of brown, creating a very vintage vibe. The soft leather elements and clean distinction in color blocking allow it to be able to have a more casual appearance than the usual purse youâ€™d bring out with you on a Saturday night. The next change for handbags in spring is the textured tote. Whether itâ€™s woven or embossed, spring will bring about tons of texture in oversized bags like totes.
Our pick is the Miu Miuâ€™s MatelassÃ© leather tote for $2,200. Its soft rose pink color acts a neutral but gives a bit more vibrancy than just a classic beige. The subtly ruffled exterior adds an element to the overly structured and tailored bags weâ€™ve been so used to seeing in the past. The partially silver linked handles create an additional form of texture that ties everything together in a gorgeous, sophisticated bag.
The fourth spring handbag that we desperately need is the Victoria Beckham Victoria leather tote for $3,250. This beautifully crafted tote makes a statement with a bold pop or orange with black sides and handles. The geometric shape and expertly chosen hues make it not only chic and elegant, but also sultry and edgy. The last handbag look for spring is carrying a bright satchel.
Our pick is the Proenza Schouler small leather satchel for $1,225. The neon-coral color gives it a fashionable pop of color that will stand out against any outfit. The belt buckle straps and gold hardware are sleek additions to this fabulous bag. Whatever your style is, these five bags are the top choices for spring and utterly amazing.
Take your pick or get all 5 and stay ahead in style for spring. All bags can be purchased at Net-a-Porter.com.
The strapless dress is one of summer’s strongest trends. It’s a perfectly pretty way to keep cool this summer and still maintain a stunning sense of style. The strapless mini dress is not just for formal occasions anymore. The strapless frock now comes in many fabrics and designs suitable for office dressing when shrouded in a coordinating cardigan or blazer. Toss of the jacket and add some colorful accessories and you’re set for a summer evening on the town. One of our favorite looks for strapless summer dresses is bright and bold. Besides bright colors will heighten the glowing effect of your fresh from the weekend (ahem, newly applied self tanner) tan.
We are loving these styles that are total stunners and look great with towering espadrille wedges as they do with a pair of flip-flops. The Thread silk twill dress is whimsical design layering brightly colored scalloped silk off set by a bright yellow bow. Coral looks especially pretty on a tan. This is the perfect frock for an aprÃ¨s beach alfresco dinner. Tibi’s daring ethnic inspired prints offset a bold primary palette and are enhanced by a black contrast waistband. Donna Morgan’s circle dress oozes retro glamour in the shade of our favorite summer beverage, yellow lemonade! Morgan’s belted yellow and white dress is definitely the most demure of the trio. This cotton sateen number would also work for a bridal shower or brunch with the in-laws. Add a bit of whimsy with bright colorful accessories such as a set of colorful plastic bangles and a colorful clutch.
