Omiru Poll Results: 3/4 Length Jackets are In

Omiru Poll Result: 3/4 Length Jackets are In

3/4 Length CoatWe asked: Are 3/4 Length Jackets In or Out?

You said:
They’re In!  A full 73% are for the 3/4 length style.   Only a handful (16%) believe 3/4 length jackets are Out, and even fewer (11%) think they’re on their way out.

Omiru’s take: What’s not to love about this classic silhouette?  It’s flattering on most body types, and in a lightweight fabric, it can take you from Spring to Summer with ease.  To punch up this classic look, try a jacket with a little more personality.  Look for oversized lapels, oversized buttons, or a bright color (orange, anyone?) for a jacket whose style does your personality justice.

Next Question: At the ExPosure fashion show, you wrote down Stunner Shades/Aviator Sunglasses on the In List.  While we like the drama of these shades, we also appreciate the other extreme: Small and Square Sunglasses.  Tell us, what do you
think about Oversized Sunglasses?  Are they In, or are they Out?  Cast your vote on

Trendscape: LBD (aka the Little Blue Dress)

Sure, the little black dress will always be a classic, but why not turn classic into classy with a little (navy) blue dress? The new LBD (little blue dress) is still dark enough to hide any imperfections, but it also has a hint of color so as to liven up your look.

So throw on one of the following styles, add a pair of eye-catching heels (perhaps off-white, camel-hue, or gold), and layer on some chunky accessories (say a long, gold-chain necklace).  You’ll take the little black dress to whole new (and blue) level.

Thanks, Smashingly Fabulous, for the tip!

Peacock Feather Pendant

Peacock Feather Pendant
Peacock feathers, turquoise and new jade are paired in a deliciously chic combination. 

Design inspiration?  Designer Kara Gingras says, "The bold yet delicate nature of the peacock feather.  When worn, the peacock feather flutters with the body’s movement, creating a subtly flirty feel."

Gingras also shares some outfit suggestions: "Pair this piece with one of this summer’s simple white sundresses for a hip and casual daytime look or with a deep plunging top for a more sultry evening look."

$110 at RedRoomStyle.
