Fashion Blitz — How to rock colored denim

Written by admin. Posted in The Blitz

Ashley’s pick:

Some may think bright green pants are a splurge and unpractical, but they’re actually very wearable and easy to coordinate into different ensembles as long as you have a little creativity.

The outfit I styled this week is bold from head to toe. I wanted the green pants to be the center of focus, so I kept the rest of the palette strictly black and white.

The striped top over the polka dot blouse keeps a black and white combination interesting and not so predictable. I added the oversize blazer to complete the look and for some additional warmth.

The bright colored pants make a big statement without trying too hard. They’re also a fit flattering for nearly all body types and at a price point that is budget-friendly.

I finished off the look with some chunky suede wedges that compliment the other bold pieces.

Editor’s pick — SAG Awards fashion

Awards show season is one of my favorite times of year. Not only do my favorite actors and actresses get recognized for their amazing work, but I get to experience the red carpet through their fashion.

Last night was the 18th annual SAG Awards. While I didn’t get to watch the entire show, I did catch up on my red carpet fashion afterward. Here are some of my favorites of the night:

Viola Davis in Marchesa

First off, “The Help” star Viola Davis has a near perfect body. This cream gown with gold embroidered bodice shows off her glowing skin and makes her look like a goddess.

She mixed it up with the hair, too, and ditched her usual straight locks for a curly look.

 

Michelle Williams in Valentino

The “My Week with Marilyn” star always brings effortless class to her outfits, and it was the same for with the beautiful lace one-shouldered dress.

I’m usually not a fan of perfectly matching your shoes to your dress, but she offsets it well with gold jewelry and a black clutch.

 

Ariel Winter in Collette Dinnigan

“Modern Family” star shined in this amazing tea-length dress. (I wish I had been this fashionable at age 14.) I think she looks immensely grown up, without it being “too mature” of a look for her.

My favorite part? The glittery Miu Miu shoes!

 

Jayma Mays in Reem Acra

Mays left behind her shy “Glee” character in this glittery ensemble. Not one to usually be too edgy, she was (obviously) one of my favorite looks of the night.

It’s so different from how I’m used to seeing her on the show, and the dress fits her beyond perfectly.

I feel like she could’ve done something a little more glamourous with her hair, though.

 

What were your favorite looks of the night?
