Oscars 2012: Trendspotting

Oscar weekend has come to an end, but that doesn’t mean we have to stop talking about it.  We thought we’d top off our Oscar coverage with a quick trend report on how you can inject a bit of A-list style into your everyday wardrobe this Spring.

Spotted Trend: Peplum

With the flirty style invading runways well into Fall 2012, we weren’t surprised when this one popped up on the red carpet.  Michelle Williams chose a gorgeous coral Louis Vuitton gown with tiered peplum detailing at the waist.   To bring a bit of peplum chic into our everyday wardrobe, we chose a simple red top with peplum detailing at the waist and paired it with sleek black trousers, black patent pumps and a contrasting gold fringe statement necklace.   To finish off the look, pull your hair into a chic top knot and don’t be afraid to dab on Chanel’s Coco Red Lipstick.

Spotted Trend: Pearly Whites & Conservatism

Two patterns that we also noticed making their way down the red carpet were simple white dresses and more conservative necklines.   With that being said, how could we not talk about Gwen again?  The world stopped breathing for a second when she stepped out in her beautiful white Tom Ford gown.  Its sleek, simple and conservative cut is surely being replicated by designers as we speak.  Here’s how you can get the look now.  It’s as simple as a fitted white sheath dress completed with nude pumps, a white envelope clutch and bejeweled cuff for glamour.  Keep your makeup light and primp your hair with soft curls.
