Oscar Style Tips

Oscars is one of the biggest nights in not only Hollywood film history but also in the fashion industry. All eyes were on who would get to take the little gold men home and who is wearing what. Since I believe that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, let's save the judgement for the fashion and TV critiques. Instead, let's look at the four style tips the ladies on the red carpet has taught us that can be applied to our next fancy soiree.


1. Sport a Bright Hue

Stand out from the ccrowd and show your personality with a bright-coloured frock. Kerry Washington does it well here in a coral gown and Reese Witherspoon hits it out of the ballpark with the gorgeous electric blue.

Even the man of the hour is doing it right.

2. Backwards Necklace

A touch of elegance and style. Don't over-do it with a large piece of jewelry . Instead do it right with a delicat, shimmery chain necklace so you can add some effortless glamour of your number. This would also go really well with a dress with a low-cut or v-cut back.

3. Razzle Bedazzle!

If you feel more comfortable in neutral and basic hues, then so be it. Add a little magic to your gown with some glitz and glamer. The dresses themselves will act as the statement piece. No jewelry or blings necessary.

4. "Cutting" Edge

There is a lot of unconventional crops and cut-outs happening on the runway this season. Naomi Watts wows with this stellar cut-out of a dress. The assymmetry cut-out shows off her body beautifully, but with class, and gives the gown an edgy feel. Everyone loves an element of surprise and all eyes will be on you when you walk across the red carpet (or sidewalk).

And a fun one...

With these style tips, we can all look like a million bucks while heading out to our commoner's version of a glam-worthy event. Good luck fellow fashionistas.

Fashionably Yours,
