Who wore it best!

Wednesday, September 16th, 2009

The tropical print on this T-Bags Yasmin maxidress is playful on both celebrities, but Tori Spelling’s fair skin and blond hair blend in a little too much with the girlie color palette. Jenna Dewan’s brunette waves pop against the pattern, while the fitted one-shouldered bodice flaunts the actress’ curves and dresses up the beachy style.  Dress it up with fashion gold bangles to sparkle it up.

Celebs & classic pearl necklaces

Friday, September 11th, 2009

The classic string of pearls is getting an instant update this season. Layer long pearl necklaces with metal chains or with even more pearl strands of different sizes for a funky mix-and-match vibe. A single strand of pearls livens up Ciara’s combo of chain necklaces. Rihanna takes pearls to the edge by piling them on in varying sizes and lengths. Just remember to avoid pairing pearls with other traditionally preppy picks, like a pastel cardigan.
