It’s no secret; when it comes to major moments for the President and First Lady, everyone wants to know what designer Michelle Obama is wearing.  During the 2012 Democratic National Convention fashionistas everywhere raved about FLOTUS’ custom made Tracy Reese Pink Wallpaper Combo Dress she effortlessly paired with pink J.Crew heels and Artistic Nail Deisgn’s Colour Gloss Soak-Off Gel in Vogue nail polish.

After receiving great reviews about the dress, Tracy Reese immediately began working on making the dress for the mass market. After a few months, the dress is finally available!

Spring 2011 Trend Report

April is a few days away which means it’s time for us to all make sure our wardrobe is ready for the new season!

With so many trends this season, it’s hard to keep up! So to help you look your best, I compiled a list of the most popular trends you’ll want to incorporate into your wardrobe. And what’s nice about these trends is that they won’t ever go out of style!

Trouser Jeans

Every woman should own a pair of trouser jeans. They are classic and very flattering, elongating the leg of any woman who wears them.  They are a great options for casual Friday work days.

Nude Pumps

Nude Pumps Spring 2011 Trend Report

One of my favorite trends of the season. Nude pumps come in multiple shades and also elongate the leg of women who wear them.  Because they are neutral, they look great with any color; pair them with rich colors like coral, red, purple and navy for a nice contrast.

Bold Colors

Don’t worry, you don’t have to wear a bold color from head to toe. Instead incorporate bright colors into your wardrobe by wearing a bright top with neutral pants/skirt or use accessories (scarves, bracelets, rings, handbags) to add a pop of color.

Prints

Contrary to many beliefs, you can mix prints!! The key is to keep one constant color between the two prints and one print should be more dominant than the other.

Wedges

Wedges this year seem to be a lot more popular than past seasons. They are available in a variety of colors, fabrics and height. Wedges look great with full skirts and shorts.

Lace

Expect to see lace dresses and skirts this season (I saw one at The Limited this past weekend) in multiple colors.  Lace adds femininity and sex appeal without being over the top. Lace is a great alternative to wearing satin dresses for evening. 

Jumpsuits

Jumpsuits are another trend this season that add verticality to the women who wear them. They are a great alternative to dresses for day and especially an evening event (an all black jumpsuit with heels and fabulous accessories screams “CHIC”).

Full Skirts

Full skirts take A-line skirts to the next level! They are fun and flirty and are available in a varity of clothers and patterns for a variety of occassions. Remember, A-line skirts should help balance out a women’s proportion; if she is bottom heavy they slim a woman’s hips and if you’re aren’t bottom heavy they add flattering volume (not the same as bulk).

Peasant Tops

70s style is back this season so you can expect to see lots of peasant tops.  They will look great with trouser jeans, linen pants or shorts this season with wedges.
