Luxe for Less: Shine On

February 16, 2012 | 1:00 PM | Her | By Staff

Spring is nearly in fling and pretty pastels and whites make for lovely Spring evening wear. Of course, adding a touch of shine gives a pale dress a little something extra special for a big date, a fancy charity event or even an at home Oscar Party. The Louis Vuitton version may be a bit too much when prancing around your house, watching your favorite stars on the red carpet with your besties on Sunday, February 26th. However, I think this Ted Baker “Hasse” Sequin Panel dress at just $275 is the perfect everyday runway option for a little bit of lovely this Spring 2012.

Tangerine and shades of bright orange are popping up for Spring / Summer 2012. The Hermes Spring Summer 2012 runway show with new designer Christophe Lemaire featured a hot orange pocket-sized bag against copper and lighter shades of the primary color. We found this Crossbody Structured bag at Forever 21 for just $19.80. But if you’ve got it, flaunt it for the Hermes.

As mentioned in our trend report this morning, the 90s are officially back. That’s right. Pop in your copy of Clueless for a refresher on Cher and Dionne’s ensemble fashions. Or add just an on trend touch of 90s to a little black dress or a pair of cut off shorts with these $14 floral leggings from Urban Outfitters. Cynthia Rowley showcased floral covered stems at her Spring 2012 runway show in New York this past fall. Now, everything’s is coming up roses in lesser-priced trend stores.

A bomber jacket is a classic men’s piece adding both an edge and an air of sophistication to any cool weather outfit. A classic black can be worn over all black, head to toe, for a chic evening out or a warmer brown tone is great for day. The Dolce & Gabanna Worn Leather Bomber is an investment even at the current sale price of $1,277. Or opt for the Obey Rapture Bomber Jacket from Urban Outfitters for just $128. With use, it will wear into a chic worn leather piece.

Adding a festive on-trend skinny belt, creates a bit of glamour and of course, a desirable curve in the middle over any bulky sweater, jacket or sweater vest. Cinch in your waist with a wintry, yet sparkly skinny metallic belt like the one from Oscar de la Renta for $195 at Neiman Marcus or opt for the equally glamourous $34 Perfect Skinny Glitter Belt from Ann Taylor, available in the pictured silver and in gold. Though trendy for the season, skinny belts are an incognito way to keep your trousers in place under longer tunics or tops.
