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.

FashionShoe Steal: Pink Duchess Vickys

This just in! Lulus.com is now home to the Pink Duchess Vicky Black Zippered and Collared Bootie [sold out!].

If this hip little bootie looks familar, then you’ve probably seen it on the runway or on the many celebs sporting the Faithful Bootie by Alexander McQueen. This designer shoe runs for a pretty penny of $1,155!

At LuLu*s, you can get the same great look for less than $50 with the bootie by Pink Duchess. Not a bad deal if I say so myself.

NewsUrban Warriors Run This Town

I learned a new vocabulary word this week while reading the Rolling Stone article about the new trio of Jay Z, Rihanna, & Kanye West: triumvirate.

According to Wikipedia: a triumvirate (from Latin, “of three men”) is a political regime dominated by three powerful individuals, each a triumvir (pl. triumviri). The arrangement can be formal or informal, and though the three are usually equal on paper, in reality this is rarely the case. The term can also be used to describe a state with three different military leaders who all claim to be the sole leader.

The music video for the song Run This Town couldn’t demonstrate triumvirate better. You have Jay-Z crowned king (by popular demand) of hip hop running the town with Kanye West (self-proclaimed king of the world of both music and fashion) and the most beautiful siren of late, Rihanna. Not to mention that this video meets all of your style questions about the up-coming season’s look to the “urban warrior”.

This “urban warrior” will be embracing layers of textured black vests, shirts, knits, tights, leggings, boots, leather, metallic studs, chains, and crazy glasses in the next year or so. And the triumviri will lead this trend towards inevitable success.

 

FashionHot Trend: Banded Skirts

Skin tight and ultra form fitting, these banded skirts are all about sex appeal and showing plenty of leg.

With its inherent flirtiness, one might go thinking that such a skirt is only suitable for a wild gal’s night out on the town. The truth is quite the opposite, as these skirts transition seamlessly from nightlife to daytime. Pair one with a loose blouse, a tasteful belt and sandals for a casual look with a hint of va va voom!

Whether dressed up or dressed down, this look can create a stunning silhouette if you get it right. Take it from the stars like Rihanna and Mary Kate Olsen if you need a little inspiration. Now, at Lulus.com you can get the look for a steal of only $23 with our Body Language Skirt [sold out!] in a bold black and white stripe print (pictured below)!
