After finally sifting through the piles & piles of magazines that I’ve been neglecting, I was so happy that spring is just around the corner (even though in New York, it feels like it’s here). To help usher in the new season, Selena Gomez is doing double duty this March on the covers of both People Style Watch & Cosmopolitan.
I kept my focus on the great style featured in PSW, one of my favorite style / fashion mags & loved these three looks worn by Selena, which are of course from some months back, but still show off her youthful & flirty side, perfect for preparing your wardrobe for the spring. First we see Selena in a white BCBG Max Azria Grecian-inspired mini dress with some major shoes by Sergio Rossi. She mixes professional with cute in a corset by Matthew Williamson under black trousers & a shrunken blazer with Giuseppe Zanotti Design pointed toe bowed shoes. Lastly, at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards, Selena looked refined, fresh, & glamorous in a top by Giambattista Valli with a two-tone mini skirt, Casadei silver shoes, & a clutch by Cecelia.
Some of my favorite pieces from PSW’s March issue include those pictured to the left. If you haven’t heard already, designer Jason Wu has created an amazing line of clothing & accessories for Target, including the flap satchel ($49.99). Michelle Obama, Diane Kruger, & Shailene Woodley are fans of the designer, who I wrote about on Culture Mob, in my column A Dash of Fashion.
Ditch the old frumpy cardigan & try a floral kimono cardigan ($24.80) like this one from Forever 21 to wear with your favorite white tee & jeans. The soft flowiness of the top is also perfect for wearing over a little black or white dress, if you’re looking to dress it down for a more casual, but stylish event. For more flowy jackets like this, check out some of my picks @Macy’s, Charlotte Russe, & Torrid.
I was also very excited to recently read about Ivanka Trump‘s latest collection, which is sold @Lord & Taylor & Macy’s. This includes the very chic ‘Ivana’ silk top ($115.00), which is out of my typical shopping budget’s price, but hopefully these styles will go on sale soon! The line includes very stylish, muted handbags which are perfectly neutral to match with any tailored suit or spring dress when the weather gets warmer. Also, the shoes are fabulous, including evening sandals, sexy pumps, casual flats, & classic boots.
Speaking of shoes, I couldn’t help buy gasp when I saw the Fioni ‘Kutzie’ knot pump ($29.99) in navy from Payless in the pages of the magazine since I’ve been eyeing them when I returned home from Italy a few weeks ago. If you’re not a fan of the navy with the stripes, have no fear, the shoes also come in luxe black patent leather, as well as a sexy nude with suede details at the peep toe. If you plan on buying these shoes online, use the coupon code 65634 for 20% off & it expires on 3/19/12.
