Tip Tuesday – Accessorizing 2 of the Season’s Hottest Trends

Metallics, fringe, and ruffles are a must-have this season! Whether it’s in clothing or purses, these design elements are seen everywhere.

Out of these three trends, ruffles and metallics are our favorite so today we, at Le Chic wanted to showcase how some of our classic accessories are not always great all year round, but how they also fit some of the current trends.

Neutral colored ruffled accessories are the most ideal due to the subtle color toning down the ruffle designs. This way, you won’t overdue it with the structured look of ruffles or pleated ruffles yet you will add a feminine edge to your look. Our Iman, Fiona, and Fiorella purses are perfect for this trend yet will still be fabulous for the upcoming seasons.

Metallics have been a hot trend for a while but this season we are seeing more structured metallics that resemble real metal. This is another trend that is ideal with neutral toned outfits as they will tone down the hard structure of the accessories. In contrast, a flowy skirt or pants compliment the structured metallic trend as well as they are opposites and level each other out when styled together. Le Chic carries an abundance of metallic accessories but some of our favorites are the Jezebel, Clea, and Estrella styles.

Which trend is your favorite?

Media Monday – The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

The annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, that aired last Tuesday night, started off with an all-star performance by Fall Out Boy accompanied by Taylor Swift, who was decked out in a Union Jack ensemble, singing “My Songs Know What You Did In the Dark.”  Swift walked the Runway and danced around with the other models. This was such a fun way to start off the show!   This year, Candace Swanepoel rocked the glamorous 2013 Fantasy Bra. It was encrusted with diamonds, rubies, and sapphires and will retail for $10 million!!  The Fantasy Bra is always the best piece in the show. If you haven’t seen the show yet, watch it here:  http://vsallaccess.victoriassecret.com/fashionshow/

The Victoria’s Secret fashion show has been a highly anticipated event in recent years. Everyone wants to see what will happen at the next VS Fashion Show because each year there is always crazy new designs  This year there were six segments that divided the show: British Invasion, Shipwrecked, Birds of Paradise, Parisian Nights, PINK Nation, and Snow Angels.  Each segment brought new and imaginative designs to the VS Runway, but our favorite was the Birds of Paradise section. We loved all the feathered pieces, especially this one!

Throwback Thursday – Emerald

The color theme of emerald has never been too far away from the focus of the hottest fashion trends. The emerald color is bold, yet elegant and classic and always has been.

Back in the 195os, it was Elizabeth Taylor’s favorite color during her Golden Age at the Hollywood. She had the most beautiful emerald eyes and she loved to wear everything emerald, from her fit-and-flare dress to that pair of sparkling earrings, except for her flawless red lips. Emerald composed the unforgettable moments of her charming style. Our Objet d’Art Earrings with rustic silver finishing would be your go-to jewelry for a vintage emerald look inspired by Elizabeth Taylor.

Today, emerald still keeps it’s presence everywhere from the runway to the streets. This color works great as a statement in any part of your outfit – a flowing dress, a necklace, or even a bold eye makeup. We also adore the appearance of emerald when it marries lace and is accessorized with gold. In the collage below, you can experience how our Distinct Sage Ring revitalizes a black dress with delicate lace detail. While having emerald being the theme, you can opt for our Fall Terrace Ring in case you desire more sparkles or our 4-Leaf Clover Ring for a slightly exotic feeling.

On December 12th, more of Le Chic emerald accessories will be on sale at Shoplately where you can get your favorite styles at up to 45% off with free shipping!

World Wednesday – Streets of Tokyo

A couple weeks ago, we introduced our fans to the very playful street styles of Tokyo where we found layers of bright colors and exotic prints. Today, you can discover a different side of the fashion in Tokyo which is very modern and more structured.

The ultra-sleek cuts and fittings remain to be the symbols of Japanese fashion. While the stylish figures on the streets of Tokyo continue to embrace the layering of unique pieces, we see a more neutral color palette implemented in the outfits shown below. The colors tune down the edgy pieces in order to make them fit together.

To utilize these style languages, we would suggest picking up a black shirt dress with drapes as the core of your outfit. Then you can add a structural grey or off-white leather jacket and a pair of wedge sneakers which will make the look cool and neutral. A pair of black leggings here would be a very simple way to link all the shades of black and white in this outfit. The last yet the most crucial step for you would be to accessorize it with your personal accent. A bright color envelope clutch along with our Archaic Crystal Cuff will brighten everything up!

Tip Tuesday – Embellished Accessories

Hello fans! As the holiday season is coming along, we find all sorts of embellishments starting to claim their presence in street styles. Today we are going to share fashion finds on some stunning details and introduce guides to our embellished accessories. With the ability to carry the look from day to night, these make the perfect investments.

The styling strategy here would be to keep your clothing simple, makeup subtle, and let your accessories do the talking. Like the example below, we are implementing the basic stripe top, white skirt and a wool cape as the ‘canvas’ for the gold floral embellished sunglasses and our Becca clutch. Putting on a pair of leather gloves, you will be ready to go to work. At  night, you can simply add a splash of hot pink to your lips for that extra accent.

If you are looking for more glamour, we would suggest adding some sparkle to one part of your outfit which should go along with the accessories. Below we matched a black skirt with gem embellishments with our Ursula clutch, Hellenic stretch bracelet and black faux suede pumps. At the end, a well-crafted fur coat will help you tie everything together to finish this lavish statement.
