With awards season in full swing, we are used to seeing the men of Hollywood dressed to the nines in dapper suits. But let’s face it, we know most of the men would much rather be kicking back in their favorite jeans and sneakers. So let’s take a look at men’s hot casual style while braving the freezing temps!
Men, take note of our favorite werewolf’s shearling lined coat, fitted jeans and boots. Aviators finish off his look. This is a simple way to appear like you put in more effort into your attire than you actually did.
Just when you thought denim couldn’t get more laid back, Wes Bentley shows us that it can. His mix of distressed denim and dark denim are a rugged dude’s dream duds.
Elijah Wood has perfected hipster style with cuffed jeans over boots, a sweater over a button up and a peacoat. Round sunnies are the finishing touch.
Black jeans and a cable knit sweater are the key to staying warm while still being on trend. Notice the button down underneath for cool layering. This is such an easy look for a guy to pull off and requires minimal effort. Headband is most definitely optional.
Whose Sundance cold weather style do you want your guy to steal?
Got numerous amount of split ends? Styling your hair with heat everyday can dry and stress out your luscious locks. But don’t you worry, there are ways to get perfect waves without the use of heat!
Every girl’s dream is to have long, flowy, healthy waves but perms can be expensive and curling iron can be damaging. So ditch the curling iron ladies, because these steps will help you get the natural waves you’ve been wishing for.
Start with damp hair & add curling mousse (any brand is fine).
Wait til your hair is a bit dried. Remember no blow drying! Drying naturally is better for your hair & scalp.
Take a plain headband. If you don’t have one, you can purchase them at your local drug store for a cheap price. Comb your hair nicely & simply wear it around your head like a hippie.
Take about 1 inch section of your hair from the front & wrap it around the band. Repeat the same process on the other side. Make sure its wrapped pretty tight.
This is the easy part, playing the waiting game. You can relax & wait for couple hours or just sleep. Once you take out your curls, you will be breathless about how beautiful your hair is & you did it without using heat.
Here is a picture of the whole process & the result.
For more than 20 years, Pantone, the global authority on color, has surveyed the designers of New York Fashion Week and beyond to bring you the season’s most important color trends. This year, Pantone declares Radiant Orchid to be the color of 2014. Check out Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman’s remarks on the color in the video above and then read up on Trina Turk and Tracy Reese’s interviews with Pantone below.
I love Cyan Blue mixed with Scarlet. It’s classic and always works. Mint Green is mixing beautifully with Lapis Blue and is a wonderful accent to a primary palette. I also like Ochre mixed with all shades of Pink from dusty to shocking.
Tribal cultures from Africa to the Caribbean and South America.
Many different shades of Blue, from Indigo to Lapis and Cyan to Sea and Ocean Blues. They anchor every delivery. Our customer is always drawn to warm Blues – they look good on everyone.
Must-have items for 2014
A tropical-print slip dress in a moody Pink floral print.
What color would you repaint a room or accent piece in your home?
I would wallpaper an accent wall in my bedroom with one of our large floral placement prints in shades of Pink and Ochre. It’s bright and melancholy at the same time – very emotional and expressive.
Pops of bold color, including Ultramarine, Clementine and Azalea, back to a stark Black and White graphic mix. Also sun-bleached, washed-down brights, mixed with Chambray, Black and White.
A road trip down the California coastline.
Grapefruit. As you are driving down the California coastline, you might see this sun-bleached, softer hue in a sunset.
Must-have item for Spring 2014
A fabric-mixed sweatshirt.
Hollywood is obsessed with dynamic newcomer Lupita Nyongo and so are we! I mean what is there not to love about the “12 Years A Slave” actress? She’s extremely talented, intelligent and gorgeous with a killer sense of style to boot. To confirm our fashion obsession with the budding starlet, we’ve compiled a mini fashion diary for you all to marvel at. Check it out.
One of my favorite shoes to wear are thigh high boots. I believe every woman should own at least one pair to make a fashion statement.
Imagine a biker chick with long brunette hair, white tank top, black jeans and thigh high boots, getting off her motorcycle in a supermarket parking lot. Now, that’s sexy. I absolutely love thigh high boots and good thing about them is that you can wear them with literally ANYTHING!
Simply wear your favorite dress and pair it with thigh high boots and BAM! You’re finished getting ready and looking gorgeous.
I love this “tough girl” look on Cassie. I also like the fact that instead of wearing black jeans, she wore white which compliments her boots very well.
Wearing shorts with thigh highs is another way to look good on a casual day or night.
Make the night muy caliente with just a pair of lingerie and black pair of thigh high boots. I bet you will feel sizzling too!
Unless you live in Hawaii or California (jealous if you are) stateside, we’re pretty sure you have found out that it is blustering cold outside. This is something serious, an Arctic Epidemic if you will. Well don’t worry if you’re not stocked for the chilling to your bones! We have pieces that can fit all of your needs to bravely venture out in the sub-degree weather.
All too often the fun, glitter shadows get passed over in our makeup pallets. But it’s that time of year where we can experiment with glitz, glam and shimmer and over the top beauty looks are welcomed.
Take a look at a few of our favorites to ring in the New Year!
What is more glamorous than a dramatic cat-eye and a red pout? Or bold and berry if you prefer. Take note of Emmy Rossum’s take on Old Hollywood glam, she is a pro at rocking this look. Check out Coco Rocha’s sleek ponytail for a modern twist on Old Hollywood.
AMP UP YOUR LINER
Amp up your cat eye with a glittery version—a metallic hue or bold purple, blue or green will step up your New Year’s game. Definitely do a rest run the day before the big night, some glitter liner is not dark enough so you may need black liner underneath to make it pop like it does in the photo above.
A metallic shadow in silver, gold, peach or copper with full lashes and a neutral lip is the perfect combination. A nude lip will balance out the statement making shadow. Shimmery peach or silver are so pretty and festive.

Love, LOVE glitter nail polish–they’re in my daily polish rotation, and are especially fabulous when celebrating the New Year. If you want to be a bit more subtle than all out glitz, brush a layer of sparkle over a solid color.
Cheers to a beauty-ful New Year!
Amongst the tree decorating and cookie baking, how’s a girl supposed to have time to look their best? Quick, Easy, and Gorgeous Holiday Hair styles. This is for the girls who have a million tasks to do and for the girls like myself who are laid back with their mane and fully believe that sea salt spray and dry shampoo is her hair’s best friend.
THE MESSY PLAIT
The Messy Plait is laid back but still fun look to pair with a modern classic top (like the Kenneth Cole Teagan Sheer Tunic). Start with the basics: a sea salt spritz and a quick blow dry. Pull hair to one side and fishtail away (here’s a quick refresher). Volume up the braid by gently pulling at pieces to look fuller.
THE TEASED PONY
The Teased Pony is a variation of a daily ‘do but bigger and better. Dry Shampoo it up for extra volume and texture. Jo suggests a deep side part, but do what you fancy. Tease your crown (or top quarter of your hair) for volume. Wrangle in the mess by softly brushing the top layer of hair. Take the teased section and pin it in place. Make a low pony at the nape, wrap a thin piece of hair to hide the hair tie. Add some volume to the tie by back combing with your fingers, throw on a patterned wrap frock (like The Geri Dress by T Tahari), and off you go.
BLITZEN & GLITZIN
Now here is something the ladies with the short hair can get behind. Accessories are always a girls best friend. From a pixie to luscious locks, Metallic Hairpieces and Bedazzled Headbands go with everything.
