Black and blue are so over — that’s if celebs have anything to say about it! This spring, celebs are getting loud – and we don’t mean dancing on tabletops Paris Hilton style!
In our last article
, we saw celebs getting funky with paisley prints and graphic gowns.
With summer quickly approaching (defined by 100-degree heat that’s
become a mainstay in the city) statement-making patterns are here to
stay. But if you’re into sultry, rather then sharp, you might want to trade up the paisley for floral and the graphic for geometric.
Everyone from Kelly Osbourne to Mischa Barton are rocking deep florals, while Eva Mendes never ceases to amaze with the way she wears art-deco.
But beware, you may have to tone it down. Perhaps only Paris herself
can wear bright watercolors and shirtdresses that scream graphic. Last
time we told you that you, too, can wear patterns properly — with a
twist. This time, SCS wants to support the subtle set – the celebs that
are quietly taking over the beauty of fashion with sass and
sophistication. Here’s how you can pull off the sleeker patterns.
How To Wear: Floral
Say the word summer and watch celebs immediately step out in the
brightest flowers. There’s something about the warm months that make
pulling together a frilly floral piece so fresh. Take Heidi Montag’s strapless watercolor floral dress for the Kentucky Derby
in the easiest eye-catching pinks, whites, and purples. The
self-proclaimed Hills’ strong woman is often see in sharp brights but
adding florals gives her a softer approach. New Paris princess Mischa Barton, who now lives in the fashion capital is often seen in tans, khakis, and bright blues, but this purple halter sweetens up her quirky look.
