As everyone knows, tonight is Oscar night! For fashionistas like ourselves, we pay close attention to the glamorous gowns on all of the A listers. And as expected, tonight was nothing shy of extraordinary. However, most careers do not require extravagant gowns and an endless attire budget and so we are taking the top trends from the Oscars and transcending them into every day apparel (at a budget friendly price point).
The most common trend that was seen tonight was the strapless neckline, seen on Actresses such as Jessica Chastian, Amy Adams, Reese Witherspoon and Keri Washington. This trend is usually worn during the summer months but, can be paired with leggings, boots and a leather jacket for a fresh winter look. Here is a cute and casual strapless dress at Second Nature that can be worn in the day or dressed up at night.
Another prominent trend this year was the many shades of blue! Actresses like Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Hudson and Helen Hunt were beaming in blue gowns. This Escada jacket, now in Second Nature, is a great way to wear this trend during the winter months.
The third trend that was all over the red carpet was metal. The silver, sleek look were seen on A listers like Naomi Watts, Catherine Zeta Jones and Halle Berry in Donatelli’s vision of a “bond girl”. This trend can easily be transformed into every day outfits. It can be slowly introduced into your wardrobe through a small clutch or flats or if you are feeling bold try it in a sweater or jacket. At Second Nature, we have this gorgeous Armani Collezioni black and silver zip jacket that fits right in this season.
Pops of colour were seen everywhere this year. Jennifer Aniston was a vision in red! Other celebrities embraced the rainbow like Jane Fonda in bright yellow, Keri Washington in Fuchsia and Jennifer Garner in a hot purple Gucci number. At Second Nature, we welcome these bright hues no matter what the season! This Diane Von Furstenberg dress, now in store, is an easy and trendy way to look chic this season.
