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!

Media Monday – Sandra Bullock’s New Film Gravity

If you had ever made a trip to the theater in the past few weeks you’d notice Gravity at the box office. With $31 million in ticket sales at North American theaters, Gravity had held the top spot for the third consecutive weekend as of Oct 21.

Audiences will be captivated by the fascinating recreation of outer-space environment as they get drawn into the theater for the reveal in the trailer. Yet the film doubles as a mediation on loss and is in fact so deeply emotional as indicated by the director Alfonso Cuarón, who succinctly describes Gravity as a film about “rebirth.”

The starring actress – Sandra Bullock – is again riding high with Oscar Buzz for her performance. But her powerful appeal resides in that quality so rare in Hollywood: ‘relatability’ – you see her like one of your old friends from school, or a cool girl you would meet in the café.

We appreciate her styles for the person she is. Nevertheless, once she steps in the gown, she turns up the heat on the red carpet with distinctive glamour. Take a look at our periodical of Sandra Bullock’s best red carpet looks below and inspirational Le Chic accessories by her characteristic.

Hey there Le Chic Fans!

Here at  Le Chic, we are always fashionably focused on the hottest trends and accessories. Aside from that, we also love movies – especially summer movies. In addition to the holidays, the summertime is the best time to see some of the biggest blockbusters of the year. If you’ve checked out the up and coming movie listings, then you know some great films are coming out out soon. No clue what to go see? Never fear, we’ve done some sifting through the hottest summer flicks and came up with the 5 that we think everyone should see. We’ve also added some of our accessories inspired by these movies, check them out below…. enjoy!

“The Lone Ranger” (July 3)

Some of us may be a little too young to remember when the Lone Ranger was on t.v., but everyone should have an idea that it’s mostly about cowboys and Native Americans. Most importantly, we get to have our Johnny Depp fix, who plays Tonto, the Lone Ranger’s notorious sidekick.

Our Free Spirit Necklace reminds us of Tonto’s rebel spirit

“Girl Most Likely” (July 19)

To our SNL Fans, watch Kristen Wiig play a playwright who’s having a mid-life crisis

This Blue Fleur ring is quirky and cute like Kristen’s character

“The Conjuring” (July 19)

Love scary movies? So do we. The Conjuring, a true story about a married couple that can communicate with the dead, is a perfect pick to scare your heels right off!

We think the Dark Stone Age Necklace helps capture the dark mood of the movie

“Kick-Ass 2” (Aug. 16)

This is the follow up to the first self-made super hero blockbuster Kick-Ass! Can’t wait to see Chloe Moretz aka Hit Girl kick some ace!

Purple Girlhood Ring is inspired by Hit Girl’s all purple look

“Man of Steel” (June 14)

Everyone has been waiting on this movie to come out and in a week and a half it will finally arrive. This is a new adaptation of the on going story of D.C. Comic’s most famous (and good-looking) superhero, Superman; played by the beautiful Henry Cavill.

Our Stella – Silver Clutch is as solid as the man of steel

Media Monday: The Met Ball

Around 7pm tonight, to help get us all in an elegant springy mood, the world of fashion is having  one of its biggest nights of the year, the Met Ball. The extravagant ball, that some say is as big as the Oscars, has Vogue as its hostess and is held every year to introduce celebrities and the fashion elite to the opening of the Metropolitan Museum of Art‘s ( or The Met) fashion exhibit at the Costume Institute. One of the most anticipated time of the night is the red carpet event where celebrities and fashion icons are dressed to the nines and show off plenty of glitz and glamor. 

Each year the Met Ball has a theme for the fashion exhibit and this years theme, is PUNK: Chaos to Couture. There will be seven galleries dedicated to the innovative fashion era, including garments worn by punk pioneers like The Sex Pistols, designer inspired collections and a punk D.I.Y on how to ‘punk’ your garments up!

So, if you’re on Anna Wintour’s guest list for the night or able to splurge around $5,000-$15,000 for a ticket, great…. and Le Chic is very envious of you. But if you’re more like the rest of us and need to save a few bucks, then you can watch the live stream of the event here.

Now for some of the best looks from last years Met Ball and some Met Ball inspired accessories from our collection, enjoy!
