Post Oscar Trends

Post Oscar time is all about dishing on the most fashionable red carpet looks, who got it way right and who got it all wrong! We're sure you have your best dressed list just as we do, however we thought it'd be much more fun to feature a few key trends we spotted being showcased on the red carpet. Whether your award show worthy or just looking for a way to jazz up your current ensembles, here are a few ideas to help get you looking camera ready.

Statement Wrists
In the past its been all about the neckline and ears being adorned with major statement pieces. This year it was sans neck and major wrist. Huge cuffs and stacked bracelets were by far the biggest statement in all things jeweled.

Unexpected Print
Amongst all the blush, pinks, purples and blues, it was refreshing to see a small dose of print. Whether its done pretty in pastels or in bold graphics, keep it fresh and modern by opting for pops of print featuring painterly-like brush strokes.

Bright Lip
Within a season ruled by neutral color palettes for the face, we were happy to see a few bright lips make an appearance. Switching up your lip color can be one of the easiest ways to freshen up your look. This spring try one of the newer bright pink hues which works perfect for many skin tones and coloring. It also happens to look quite chic with many of springs new naturals and metallics.
