ArtHigh Contrast in Fashion Magazine’s May Issue

If you’re a devoted LuLu*s follower, you’ve probably noticed that we’re more than just a little bit obsessed with black and white at the moment… and it appears we are not alone. We’ve found a kindred spirit in Canada’s Fashion Magazine, as this eye-catching editorial spread can attest. Striking stripes of black and white mingle with bold pops of red for an absolutely mod-velous ode to our chromatic crush, shot by photographer Chris Nicholls. Add model Samantha Rayner’s bold, bowl-meets-bob cut by Greg Wencel, and we simply cannot look away. So take in the sights of this visually stunning spread, and once you’re through, why not indulge yourself in a little something striped?

FashionTrend Alert: J’Adore D’Orsay

As sexy as a bikini for your feet, these two-piece pumps and flats are equal parts classic and on-trend. This style has been around since the turn of the 19th century, but that doesn’t mean this arch-bearing archetype can’t have a major moment in the modern world. So air out those arches and make room for some delightful d’Orsay shoes!

FashionBlogger Roundup: Bold Contrasts & Proper Silhouettes

One of our favorite trends from the Spring 2013 runways was bold black and white contrast and combos. Whether it was stripes, patterns or colorblocking; crisp black and white exudes confidence and looks super polished and put together. Our bloggers took the trend and ran with it, each girl styling her look in an individual way!

Another one of our favorite trends was structured and proper ladylike dresses and separates! We absolutely love the prim and preppy trend we have seen for dresses and again, our girls are rocking it!

Simple silhouettes, intricate embellishments. These fuss-free, banded sandals provide the perfect backdrop to let the details, and your pedicure, truly shine. P.S.: Rihanna wears these ALL the time… Just sayin’!

FashionTrend Alert: Metal Plates

Step up to the “plates” and get in on this season’s hot new take on metallics. Studs have had their time in the limelight, but now metal is having a new moment, and it’s sleeker than ever. Hammered, shiny, or even old school jelly (seriously!), this embellishment is set to become a sandal staple, so stock up before everyone else catches on!
