Denim Trends 2014: Cool distressed details are still hot this year, but there are a few finer points that are making a presence in 2014.

Anything with straps: This includes overalls (long and short), plus overall skirts, and suspender shorts. This super-cute style will set you apart from the masses of shorty-shorts sure to be on every block this summer.

Light Wash: Nothing says summer sun like the bleached-out look of light wash denim, but don’t be afraid to rock this look well into fall and winter!

Super Seventies: Get your fix of 1976-inspired denim with bell-bottoms, but it doesn’t stop there. Combine trends by layering a cute retro crop top under those overalls, or reaching for those light-wash flares.

FashionThe Strong and Stylish Ladies of Iron Man 2

Scarlett Johansson in Iron Man 2When I went to see the new blockbuster hit, Iron Man 2, this weekend, I expected plenty of action packed scenes and stunning graphics to go with it. The last thing I expected was to be struck by the amazing wardrobe choices of the film’s two hot leading ladies.

Gwyneth Paltrow returns as Pepper Potts, the smart and faithful assistant to Tony Stark, played by Robert Downey Jr. Scarlett Johansson also joins the cast as Natasha Rushman, Tony’s mysterious new assistant who’s not only beautiful but kicks major butt.

 

Scarlett’s character is definitely meant to be the sultry type. Her sharp business attire accentuates her feminine features with the utmost of confidence. Her wardrobe also seems to borrow from 1940′s retro style with its high waistlines, polished pumps and one leopard print dress to die for!

Gwyneth’s wardrobe is a bit more conservative. Black, grey and navy dresses pair with a tasteful boat neckline to keep her look focused on business while remaining both simplistic and lovely.

Have you seen the film? If so, who wore your favorite look?
