{Trend Hungry Tuesday} Rihanna’s Handy Accessory

By now you probably know, Rihanna has come back to Instagram. And what is she posting about? Her upcoming spread in Elle magazine’s December issue. It’s sounding like her interview drops some secrets, but the fashion is on full display. So what’s the one trend she rocked that caught our eye? The hand piece, also known as a hand chain. It’s a bracelet with a ring attached, creating a style statement on your hand.

 A number of celebs have been spotted wearing this handy accessory, including Vanessa Hudgens, Anne Hathaway, Miley Cyrus, and Alicia Keys. And of course, this is one trend that doesn’t make you break the bank. There are a slew of budget-friendly hand pieces on the market ( around $10 or under!) from Lauren Conrad’s line at Kohl’s.

{Trend Hungry Tuesday} Celebs Love Flash Tattoos

Flash Tattoos, they’re jewelry-inspired temporary tattoos in metallic designs that have swept the fashion scene. It sounds like something I dreamt up when I was 5 while wearing plastic high heels around the house. That’s a good thing! They’re fun and embrace our urge to be creative with style. And I’m not the only one to think so.

Here’s a pic Beyonce posted just two weeks ago rocking the Flash Tats, that compliment her monochromatic outfit.

Get your flash on. Flash Tattoos are available at boutiques and online. You get a pack of four sheets for $22 and tats stay on for up to a week. I had one on my arm that I ended up scrubbing off after a full week, but the also had some on my hands that came off in two days. Length of wear depends where you place since certain areas, like our hands, get more use and more scrubbing.

Thanks Social Media Style for linking to these celeb pics. It made my digging for celebs pics a ton easier!

{Celeb Style} Miranda Kerr & Kourtney Kardashian in Double Denim

Traditionally, double denim is seen as a giant fashion faux pas. But for the past three years, this trend has become more and popular.

Notice the two different ways these two famous fashionista are wearing this trend. Miranda Kerr has her top tucked in for a more polished look, while Kourtney Kardashian has hers untucked for a more casual style. Either way, their styles give off a softer look and vibe. Their simplistic choices make double denim look flawless.

This trend is super attainable with a skinny budget. We all probably have a favorite pair of jeans, so all we really need is a good top. Here’s some double-denim inspiration:

doubledenim

H&M Skinny Regular Jeans (Dark), $40 | H&M Skinny Regular Jeans, $30 | Halogen Long Sleeve Chambray, $68 now $39 | Forever 21 Collared Chambray Shirt, $29

There are a few rules to this trend, such as:

1. Mix your washes

For a more contrast, pair a light chambray top with darker bottoms. A darker wash on the bottom create an elongated  leg and & slimming effect.

2. Don’t go overboard

As a stretch, think of Justin Timberlake & Britney Spear’s infamous double-denim look, circa 2001.  That’s what not to wear.

3. Create a softer look

Add strappy heels or put on a neutral statement necklace. The style this look takes on really depends on how you choose to accessorize.

4. Tuck and roll

Take a cue for Ms. Kerr by cuffing your sleeves. Or tuck in the top to show your waist.

Whose look do you prefer – Miranda Kerr or Kourtney Kardashian?

{Trendy vs Spendy} Taylor Swift’s Laser-Cut Outfit

Taylor Swift looked as darling as ever on ABC’s Good Morning America and did you see what she was wearing? It’s okay if you didn’t. I’ll tell you. T. Swizzle donned a white, vegan-leather crop top with a laser cut-out design with matching skirt. So chic. So trendy. So tasteful yet youthful. She has a seriously good stylist. And she’s also not the only celebrity to love the laser cut-out trend or this outfit for that matter. While I was digging up other celebrity looks on the internet this popped up. It’s Reese Witherspoon rocking the style in July. This trend is too fab to turn down and I found a a polyester version of the look these two ladies rocked.

{Trendy vs Spendy} Taylor Swift’s Laid-back Look

A few weeks ago, Taylor Swift was seen in NYC wearing striped denim shorts, nude pumps, a blackless top, and a black handbag. Swift’s laid-back look is easy to obtain on a budget. The spendy striped shorts she picked are $79 and currently out of stock. No fear, our trendy version shorts are only $15. These pieces are so simple and chic to create a style perf for a summer day in the city. The color choice gives in a bit of a nautical feel too.

Forever 21 Striped Denim Shorts – $15 | boohoo.com Kacey Open Back Top – $16 | Charlotte Russe Pointed Toe Low-Platform Pumps – $32 | Target Merona Solid Tote Handbag with Top Handle – $40

I’m a big fan of creating a billion outfits with repeating pieces, and all of the pieces in this look are definitely dare-to-wear worthy. Remember Jessie’s Dare to Wear style tip – rework what ya got!

And, if you want to complete the  Swift look, apply red lipstick to get her signature pout.

{Name Necklaces} Steal this Star Style for Holiday Gifts

This celebrity trend is one that you can totally steal for holiday gifts. It’s name plate necklaces. Some of our favorite famous faces are wearing names of loved ones around their neck. Kim Kardashian & Kanye West have been rocking matching “Nori” necklaces to represent their little bundle of joy, North West, but they aren’t the only celebs in on names on their neck.

Others from the Kardashian clan wore “Penelope Loves Mason” necklaces after Kourtney Kardashian & Scott Disick welcomed baby number two. Hmm, think Kim stole the idea? Who cares, I would too – so cute!

Of course Carrie Bradshaw on Sex & the City made name necklaces infamous and rappers also rock names and initials on their chains.

Buy on a Budget

Get in on the name game. Check out this Etsy shop that will personalize for as low as $15. 

Opt for Initials

If the whole name ain’t your thing, try just an initial. Jessica Alba, Reese Witherspoon, Halle Berry, and Katie Holmes have all opted for an initial of a loved one. This also takes less planning for gift giving with keeping the personal touch. Snag an initial necklace for $14 at Urban Outfitters.

Trend Hungry Tuesday: How to Be Miley Cyrus for Halloween

We can’t stop, and we won’t stop talking about the Miley Cyrus VMA performance. As much as the fashions got a lot of hate, the stars are opting to to dare to wear Miley costumes.

Over the weekend a few celebrities dressed up as our favorite twerker. Joan Rivers took a comedic approach on Fashion Police, while Paris Hilton recreated Miley’s bear look (and she dropped $5k on her look!) and Hugh Hefner & wife Crystal Harris made it a couple costume, as Hef dressed up as Robin Thicke.

Wear your hair in pigtail buns, throw on a bear tee ($15) with skimpy shorts or opt for nude dress or slip ($17), and get ready to dance with your tongue out and foam finger ($10) flailing.
