CelebrityCelebrity Style Watch: Printed Shorts

Shorts are a major wardrobe staple this time of year and I think it’s time we all trade in our usual pair for a printed pair this season! The up-and-coming printed shorts trend is very versatile and you can style yours with patterned tees, crisp button-ups or colorful chiffon tops. Some major celebs have been out and about in their super cute printed shorts, and they’ve inspired us to put together some amazing LuLu*s outfits! 
Get these looks for yourself and rock the printed shorts trend! 
 

 

FashionTrend to Try: Mixed Prints

If you’re ready to mix things up this summer, why not try mixing your prints? Stars like Kristen Stewart rock this bold look with a punch of colors. Here she is (pictured left) in a Proenza Schouler Spring 2010 ensemble.

I’m very much a matchy matchy gal and was a little wary of trying out the trend myself. However, runway looks, celebrity fashions and recent street styles have really inspired me to give it a try.

Some general tips:
*Pair a large bold print with a smaller, subtle print.
*Mix up the textures of fabric.
*Stay within the same general, color palette.
*Also, a solid color belt can break up the look and keep it from overwhelming the eyes.
 
 
Pictured above, actress Leighton Meester mixes her preppy prints as Blair on the set of Gossip Girl. I love the color palette here, but I could do without the neck tie. Rachel Bilson and Rihanna stick with neutral blacks, greys and whites. My favorite is Rachel Bilson’s look, hands down.
 

Combining stripes and florals is also quite common. Our popular Mix Master Dress in Orange (pictured left) already does it for you! I love how the orange stripes really tie in with the bright orange flowers. Lulu*s stylist, Cara, took a fashion forward step by pairing the new Day at the Circus Top with the bright Pretty as a Poppy Skirt (pictured right). The look is rather striking, but it works!

So, what do you think? Are you inspired to mix up those prints? :)

Hey, ladies (and whatever gents happen upon our blog)! We have new interns, and they are going to be doing a weekly blog! They split up this week to explore the fashion trends at the GRAMMYS! Read below to see some of their favorite dresses, celebs, and trends. (You’ll even see how to find one for yourself!)

Hey guys, this is Torrey and Michelle and we are two of the new Lulus.com interns. We will both be posting weekly blogs covering topics we find interesting. Check out our blogs and comment to let us know what you think. Hope to hear any comments you have!

Any performer’s dream is to one day walk the red carpet of the Grammy Awards. The two most important things for any artist at the Grammys is their acceptance speech and their outfit.

Out of all the dresses that walked down the red carpet at the 2010 Grammy Awards, the elegant backless style worn by Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, and Rihanna were some of our favorites.  We feel that all three of these artists pulled their gowns off perfectly, showing their back but still showing class.

 

Like always, Taylor swift looks beautiful in an off the shoulder backless blue gown from Kaufman Franco.

Katy Perry shows off her elegance in a backless beige and gold gown from Zac Posen.


Rihanna looks stunning in a high neck, open back white gown detailed with feathers from Elie Saab Haute Couture.

Hey everyone! What’s up, my name is Lauren and I am a new intern at LuLus.com. I’ll be doing weekly blogs as well so I hope you guys enjoy!

I thought Keri Hilson looked amazing in this dress by Dolce & Gabbana, she definitely was my favorite of the night. Fergie also looked gorgeous wearing a design by Emilio Pucci.

Jennifer Hudson looked stunning on the red carpet in a dress from Victoria Beckham’s Spring 2010 collection. A similar look at Lulus, the Bye Bye Baby Dress [sold out!] makes a statement with a slim waistline and powerful shoulders.

FashionFashion in Flight

Ahhhh, the holidays. ‘Tis the season for families to reunite and exchange hugs and gifts. Long-lost sons and daughters will be returning home from college or out of town to enjoy a much appreciated home-cooked meal. This may be you, and this may mean you’ll be hopping on a plane in the weeks to come.

But what to wear?

The dress code for flying has changed over the years. Flying was once a special occasion that required formal attire. But with the stress of holiday travel, airport security, flight delays and cramped cabin seating, those high heels and nylons may loose their appeal when you start to blister and itch.

Courtesy of People Stylewatch, we’ve got some great pics of celebs who, though having to travel frequently, manage to maintain their star quality and style when everything’s up in the air. 

Above, I like how Ashlee Simpson’s look is so basic yet still a statement by topping it all off with a chic hat. Meanwhile, New Moon cutie Ashley Greene pairs an elegant faux fur jacket with skinny blue jeans for a warm and casual look. Rihanna keeps her cool with a stylin’ black cap and funky work boots.

Taking hints from all these styles, my most put-together outfit for air travel would have to be: an oversized top, like the Euclidean Space Top by Brandy Melville [sold out!], skinny Kill City Jeans with stylish detailing, and a cute ladies fedora to top it all off. All this paired with shades will have you fightin’ off the paparazzi like a star.

 

Now if you want to take flight the old-fashioned way, just take a look at Mad Men star John Hamm and burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese. These two take the cake when it comes to style. Go them!

FashionTrend to Try: Bold Shoulders

Seen first in the 1940′s and again in the 80′s, shoulder padding and accents are once again making a comeback. Ruffled, sequined and blazed shoulders are all over the place, especially on celebs like Victoria Beckham.

The look is not only bold and eye-catching, but it can do wonders for your frame. It gives the illusion of broad, straight shoulders, making you stand tall just like a model on the runway.

To get in on the look, give our Karen O Top [sold out!], Beautiful Voice Top and Disconnect Top a try.
