Try A Trend: Short Suits

The trend already has the celebrity seal of approval. Everyone from Beyoncé to Brandy have been rocking the look, and it’s a perfect way to look polished and stay cool this season.

I like to think of the short suit as the mullet of suits: all business up top, but a party on the bottom!
You can choose for a matched suit set, or if you’re feeling funky, mix colors and prints. Get inspired by these pieces here:

Style Inspiration: What To Wear To An Amusement Park

Okay guys, I know that you’re tired of Kim Kardashian. I want her to go have a seat–indefinitely, too. But, there is one thing that we have to give this woman, she gives good face. Even at an amusement park. And let’s have a round of applause for Mr. West. I’m so sure that he’s dressing her. She’s much more sophisticated looking. Wouldn’t you say?
But like I was saying, Kimmie is showing is that there are ways to look good, even when you’re on a roller coaster, screaming your lungs out. A few helpful hints, though: A crossbody bag, nothing that prevents you from sitting with your legs slightly open, and comfy shoes. Not necessarily sneakers, but something that can handle all the walking. An outfit like this:

Easy, breezy but still stylish and fun.
Below are more ideas that will have you looking cute for the scream cam. Shop ’til your heart’s content:

But seriously, doesn’t Kim look so much better now the ‘Ye is styling her? He clearly needs a Barbie.
Stay Stylish!

Who Wore It Better? Melanie B vs. Regina King One Shoulder Lace Dress

We gave you a look at Melanie B in a one-shoulder red lace dress at Greystone Manor in LA, Well it turns out that her sexy frock was the same Spring 2012 Romona Keveza dress that Regina King wore last month.

While Melanie paired hers with $775 Christian Louboutin Pigalle Glitter Pumps in gold, Regina went totally monochromatic in matching red satin peep-toe pumps and even a red lip.
Check out the dress on the Spring 2012 runway.

This is a tough one! Both ladies look fabulous. This is a tie for me!
What do you think? Who wore it better?

Hot! or Hmm… Eve’s Bib Necklace and Gio Diev Milo II Sandals

Eve was spotted at The MAC AIDS Fund’s $250 Million Milestone during The International AIDS Conference in Washington, D.C. She paired a sleeveless wrap jumpsuit with some bold accessories including a black obi belt, a $436 Dannijo Donatella Bib Necklace, and a pair of Gio Diev Milo II Sandals:

Her hair and makeup? Work Eve! I would have preferred a red or coral lip to play off the shades in her necklace, but she still looks hot.

Her bib necklace is definitely a statement piece, featuring red and coral beads and horn embellishment.
Her platform sandals are an expert study in colorblocking, also boasting leather cord detailing for a barbed-wire effect.

Hot! I think the obi belt is a little much with the necklace playing centerstage, but I don’t mind it here as I think cinching the waist was essential to the look. I also wish that the length was just a bit shorter to show off her amazing shoes.
If you’re feeling Eve’s look, get some ways to recreate it here.

All eyes where on Davido as he arrived at the venue for his album launch. The man of the day was guarded into the venue because of his ever loving fans who wanted to get hold of the music crooner. Davido kept his look simple in a red Adidas track suit jacket, grey jeans and black slippers.
