Star style: Kerry Washington

Star style: Kerry Washington (BET Awards 2014) |


Kerry Washington always seems to nail her looks whether it’s on Scandal or in real life. She attended the 2014 BET Awards show a few weeks ago and looked absolutely stunning. Can you believe she just had a baby in April?

Kerry wowed everyone on the red carpet with her strapless fit-and-flare Dolce & Gabbana dress featuring an on-trend floral print. The vivid and vibrant print was on full display as she had minimal accessories: a green and gold snap clutch from Amanda Pearl, simplistic gold Roseark rings, and bright white Jimmy Choo Anouk heels .

Inspired by Mrs. Washington? You can get this summer-ready look, too! Try this steal of a floral dress that’s perfect for attendance at a wedding or even date night. This green clutch will fit the look (and bill) perfectly. Accent the gold detailing of the clutch with a duo of rings and top off the outfit with neutral white pumps. Are you donning the floral print this season?

The look for less: Eva Longoria

The look for less: Eva Longoria |


I have been a longtime fan of Eva Longoria’s style. She has a petite frame but that doesn’t stop her from styling her outfits well to maximize stature. Her recent outfit on a dinner outing at the infamous LA hotspot, Mr. Chow, is no exception. She keeps it casual but also dressed up by pairing this blush pink silk top with some white skinny jeans. She accentuates her 5’2″ frame by defining the waistline with a skinny belt and elongating her legs with her T-strap nude colored heels. Her Dolce & Gabbana handbag adds a fun pop of color to the entire look. Liking this look? It would be perfect for a daytime or nighttime outing – think business casual meeting or after work drinks! Try pairing this silk blouse with these summer must-have white denim jeans. Add a golden brown belt and these fun heels and pair it with a studded purse to achieve this sophisticated look!

Save or splurge: lace dress

save or splurge comment

Lace is the go-to fabric for this Spring’s fashion trends. Be on the lookout this season for lace to be used as an accent piece or as an entire outfit. It conveys a very sophisticated, romantic, and elegant feel. So you don’t have any pieces in your wardrobe? How about a lace dress?

I love both of these dresses! A lace dress can be surprisingly, very versatile ‐ you can dress it up or down, and actually make it into an entirely different outfit. Try pairing this designer dress with heels, flats, or sandals and that already can the mood of the outfit entirely. This saver option could be worn for either a work or social occasion ‐ simply put on a blazer or a cardigan. How about a pullover sweater? Change the dress into a skirt easily! How else would you style a lace dress?
