Spring & Summer Trends 2012- Leather Shorts

Warmer weather is almost here so get prepared and make sure your wardrobe is stocked-up with chic leather shorts! Leather shorts are the ideal choice to style up or down depending on the occasion. Leather gives your look a whole lot of attitude, making these shorts the the ultimate cool girl item of the season.

Opt for a pair of slim-fitting, mini cut shorts to accentuate your legs or a pair of high-rise shorts which are the alternative to the mini skirt.

Style Tip: Team up your leather shorts with a tunic top and lace-up booties for an edgy night time appeal, or go for a more casual look with gladiator sandals and a silk tank. Finish your looks with a stack of statement bracelets for a striking modern look.

Red Look of the Day

Spotted: Victoria Beckham in attendance at the 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar Party.  

Victoria looked ultra-elegant in her own signature design from her Fall 2012 Collection. The stylish grey column dress fit her to perfection. She accessorized the look with a double wrapped belt and an emerald ring. She opted for a simple updo, dark rimmed eyes and nude lips to polish of the look. She looked flawless.

Style Tip: The Column dress is an incredibly easy way to show sex appeal without showing too much. It can be very flattering when fitted correctly and accessorized proportionally. A belt is a very useful accessory used to enhance a waistline in a column dress. Make sure you have the height for such a dress or have it professionally hemmed so that it just ever-so-slightly touches the ground.

Spring & Summer Trends 2012- The High Slit

Heighten up your look and show off your figure in a high-slit skirt! This will be a huge trend this spring/summer. Slits add a sexy flare to any look but make sure to show some leg, not all, in a skirt or dress to ensure your look stays composed and classy.
