Style trend: tie waist dress

Tie waist dress - see all the picks at

The tie front dress is quite a popular look and for good reason: the addition of the “tie” around the waist gives dimension and completely changes the feel of an otherwise usual dress. It helps to add some definition to the waist. Also, it’s perfect for the upcoming warmer weather: no need for an extra layer since the dresses have a built-in faux shirt/sweater sleeve tied around the waist. I’m love this one for a more formal look and this one for a more sporty look (just add a baseball cap and sneakers!). Which one is your favorite?

Style trend: colorblock dress

Style trend: colorblock dress |

Black and white is always a classic color combination, and an easy go-to choice on those days where you simply “can’t find anything to wear”. And, what’s better than having something as easy as a dress that combines both colors into it? Put it on, find your favorite pair of colored shoes, and voilà: instant chic and polished outfit. I found this to be the case with my most recent colorblock dress purchase. This is a piece that I’m sure you’ll find yourself reaching for during the fall as many fashion designers have incorporated this into their 2014 line. How about this contrasting black and white dress that gives the illusion of a two-piece crop top and skirt outfit? Or, this cute sweetheart neckline illusion colorblock dress? Are you wearing incorporating colorblock into your outfits?
