Posts for January 3rd 2011
It's a new year, it's a new Fab! I already shared my fashion resolutions for 2011, and now I divulge my most current obsessions. As you can see, I'm feeling bright, citrus hues, earthy tones, utilitarian touches, and still a bit ladylike, of course. I have a brand-new bag love — hint: Vanessa Bruno — and I'm planning on wearing lots of ribbed pencil skirts this year. Click through to check out my latest January must haves and feel free to shop!
Go Whitney! The reality star-cum-fashion designer donned a bit more than sexy lingerie for a New Year's Eve party. She showed us her styling chops with a downtown glam outfit, pairing a body-conscious green minidress with a statement bib necklace ($50), then finishing the look with a chic gray Lauren Merkin clutch and strappy nude heels ($190).
They say if you love something to let it go — if it comes back to you on sale, then it's yours to keep. So, I figured when these pretty pairs of ankle boots resurfaced at a discount, it was fate. These were the season's standouts for me — lace-up details, some with a wedge or a femme peep-toe. They're ideal for keeping things casual and chic in cold weather, and when the sun starts to shine, I'm lacing them up with a floral-printed dress or skirt. Just click the items above to shop the sales!
Since the New Year has got us revamping our wardrobes, we love that J.Crew is offering a few updates of their own. Giving us 11 new classics to try on for the year ahead, the label we love has all of our favorite pieces with a few minor tweaks: a white button-down in a silky finish, a fresh pair of kicks to wear with everything we own, and a pearl necklace on the edgier side of things. It's the mix-and-match-up stylings to reboot and refresh for a chic 2011!
I'm loving how Fab reader Neekoh brightened up a drab LA day with her colorful look. She layered a button-down top and chunky sweater in two shades of green, and styled them with a chic pair of Citizens of Humanity wide-legged jeans ($198) — her cute and cozy Winter ensemble has me totally green with envy.
Congrats to Neekoh!
Everyone else, submit your looks, and I might feature you on FabSugar!
A new year means it's time to freshen up your wardrobe. Picking New Year's resolutions can be tough, so we went ahead and selected four fashion resolutions for 2011 that you'll have no problem sticking to. Colorblocking brights and long, loose trousers are just two easy ways to amp up your style this year. Watch to see more!
On dark, cold days, a little color injection is the best medicine for drab wardrobes. Gucci and Preen showed us how it's done in their Pre-Fall 2011 collections, mixing bright doses of color with neutrals like gray and tan. The radiant result proves that color needn't be worn only in the warmer months. Want to add color to your wardrobe? Check out five of our Fab looks, styled out just for you. It's time to break out that lemon yellow top and brighten your day (and ours).
