RUNWAY WRAP UP BCBG…

BCBG NYFW FW14 Hero

 

While celebrating its twenty-fifth anniversary, BCBG Max Azria was definitely not about showing off the past but how they are looking to the future. With designs full of asymmetric hemlines, mixed materials and graphic color-blocking, the collection still stayed true to the brand’s roots but in a more evolved way.

Hemlines were longer, silhouettes relaxed and each outfit comprised of various layers.  Overall the collection appeared very wearable and we can already see many women coveting the range next season. Happy 25th BCBG!

The 2014 Golden Globes brought together the biggest and brightest talents from of television and film, so we expected nothing short of starlets’ dazzling in some seriously amazing ensembles. From the awards show to the post-party, the evening was filled with old and new fashion icons that showed off the biggest fashion moments and trends of the season.

Starting with some of the night’s best dressed, the stunner from Wall Street, Margot Robbie, continued to turned heads by wearing a flattering Gucci gown embellished with vintage Van Cleef jewels. Mom-to-be Kerry Washington and Olivia Wilde glowed on the red carpet, and proved that you can still look fabulous even with a bun in the oven! Amber Heard had the perfect mix of sexiness and elegance in a navy Versace gown, along with a perfectly messy up-do. Then last but not the least, there was the most inspirational woman of the night—Cate Blanchett, who donned a gorgeous, laced Armani Couture dress! Go Cate!

 

Celebs like Lupita Nyong’o, Hayden Panetierre, and Emma Roberts made strong statements with features that made their gowns the trendiest of the season. Some of the top trends were black and white, like Hayden’s Tom Ford masterpiece, vibrant reds, such as Lupita’s gown which made fashion headlines, and elegant mermaid gowns that added a touch of old world glam to the carpet.

From Taylor’s sexy see-through dress to Miranda’s daring gown, it was clear that the outfit changes meant that the stars were about to have actual fun. Which one of these dresses would you wear for a night to remember?

Suit Up…

Bluefly Mens Suit

 

Purchasing your next suit is always an important investment, you want to pick the right cut, color and fit that can easily transform from ‘boardroom ready’ to ‘client meeting mingling’. Here are our top three tips to getting your suit situation sorted:

 

1. THE FIT – a perfectly tailored suit can make all the difference! Baggy and oversize is out and a more fitted cut is in! Opt for a slimmer style suit and take it to your tailor to perfect the fit. Pay careful attention to your sleeve and pant leg length, no one wants to look like their suit shrunk in the wash!

 

2. THE COLOR & FABRIC – to ensure your suit goes the distance, look at a tone more inline with your shirt colors and accessories. We suggest going for a rich navy or dark charcoal as it’s hard to go wrong when teaming back colors with these! With the colder months lying ahead of us, invest wisely in a wool blend suit. This will cut the chill in winter but also see you through to the warmer months as the fabric can breath. Sometimes it’s worth spending that little bit extra for a suit you can wear year round!

 

3. THE STYLING – get comfortable with dressing up and dressing down your suit! Putting on a shirt and tie is a no brainer so think beyond this! For the winter months have fun with layering colorful cashmere sweaters and sleek puffer jackets! You’ll stay stylish and warm all at the same time! Also, think about additional finishing touches such as pocket squares, leather belts, cuff links,  tie pins and socks! It’s the attention to detail that could make the difference between sealing the deal or not!
