I can't wait to get my hands on a pair of pastel jeans. Why, you ask? Because blue jeans have had their hurrah and it's time for something new. You might be feeling some resistance but think of all the pretty hues you can choose from. Light lavender, pink, sky blue, orange — the list goes on and on. Oh, by the way, they're pretty cheap, too!
Jumpers usually emit a flirty, schoolgirl appeal but this Sass & Bide Reason For Living Jumper ($408) is quite the opposite. The muted, wrinkly fabric reminds me of The Matrix and the billowy sleeves are questionable. Don't get me wrong, there might be some futurists out there who would consider this as dark and lovely. Are you jumpin' for joy or is this creation a bust?
Visiting TRL with filming buddy Kristen Bell, Mila Kunis looked fetching in a Sass & Bide minidress and vertiginous black platform heels. The overall effect is sexy, but the dress's demure neckline and wee amount of volume keep it from crossing over into tarty. The dress is sold out on Shopbop but here's to hoping there's a restocking in the future, or you can just try contacting Sass & Bide directly. Hopefully we'll be seeing more Mila around, especially if she's going to be looking this good!
I have a blonde bombshell of a friend who is a self-proclaimed broad-shouldered gal. We recently went shopping together because she needed tops and dresses and I'm here to help! We ended up scoring her some new fun and feminine pieces that helped proportion her shoulder with the rest of her bodacious bod.
I'm sure broad-shouldered broad Jessica Biel faces this challenge everyday and you can see such a difference between when she wears something ultra femme (left) and something not so femme (right). Not to say gals with broad shoulders can't wear a tee shirt when going casual, but here are some tips and items to trick the eye into thinking you have perfectly proportionate shoulders. Hope they help!
- Loose deep v-neck sweaters, and v-necks in general, are your best friend.
- Slouchy, menswearish trousers create more volume on the bottom therefore balancing out the shoulders.
- Shrunken blazers with a nipped in waist make the upper half appear more compact.
- A long, swingy top plays up the curve of the hips.
- Contrary to what you may think, suspenders cut the shoulders down the middle and elongate the torso.
- A feminine, flirty blouse softens an angular frame.
