What she’s wearing: Swift appeared in the land down under in this stunning white Elie Saab chiffon gown at the 2012 ARIA Awards in Sydney, Australia.
Why we love it: Just look at Swift, she looks GORGEOUS!! (I don’t caps lock a lot, so when I don you know I mean business!) I wanna hate Swift for living out the fairy tale dream and rubbing it in our peasant faces, but at the end of the day you got to give it to her for bringing her A game to everything (whether its her hit new record, her red carpet looks, or managing to snag a member from One Direction). Some might say this look is too dressy for the occasion but it’s usually always better to be overdressed than under-dressed. The dress is nice and sweet in the front, but the lace panelling on the side adds some major sex appeal.
Someone likes what they see!
Takeaway: Lace is a great way to show skin but still be covered at the same time, so if you find that some cutouts in dresses are too risqué try to cover those bare spots with a nice lace fabric. Make sure the lace works well with the rest of the fabrics on the dress so as to not make it look like a patchwork dress of random fabrics.
What she’s wearing: The Hunger Games actress stepped out in a graphic Prabal Gurung short-suit at the 2013 Miss Golden Globe Party in California.
Why we love it: Fuhrman was one of the standout stars in the first The Hunger Games film and its a shame she won’t be in any of the subsequent ones (sorry if this is too spolier-y for you). This chic three-piece silk suit has a matching printed blazer, shorts, and blouse but everything pops with solid accents and trimmings. The blazer has solid navy lapels and cuffs, the shorts have a bright red waist band, and the blouse has a lovely light blue statement collar.
She will cut you!
Takeaway: Menswear can be a tough arena to venture into but you shouldn’t worry because you can still show off your femininity even when wearing menswear inspired clothes. Take baby-steps like mixing menswear inspired cuts with feminine fabrics. Like you can buy a suit jacket but in silk, the silhouette might be menswear inspired but the fabric keeps it feminine.

Fashion works in cycles, so it’s no small wonder why this 90s trend is making a comeback. This time, though, it’s not all about baggy fluorescent T-shirts, unless you want it to be. Now, colour palettes are on the softer side as pastels are mixed together on just about everything — T-shirts, tank tops, shorts, etc. Tie dye also works as a great Pinterest-y, DIY project with friends and is on the wallet friendly side.
