Few looks capture the crispness of spring than the simple little white dress. This season, designers are taking this fair weather fave to new heights, mixing sheer and solid fabrics for breezy, billowing layers that say goodbye to winter’s buttoned-down, all-business attitude for good. This full-length sleeveless frock from Band of Outsiders is the perfect balance of elegance and playfulness—just the trick for breathing new life into your wardrobe.
Some time ago, we ran a story on Pantone’s 2012 color of the year: Tangerine Tango. Now, we get to see this vivid, vivacious shade in action—everywhere from blouses and blazers to skirts and shoes. While not quite a neon shade itself, it pairs wonderfully with that other hot spring trend, as seen in this electric combo from Nanette Lapore. Just be sure you keep your makeup safely toned down to keep from overdoing it.
This spring, designers couldn’t get enough flare (and no, we’re not talking about the type that drove Jennifer Aniston over the edge in Office Space). From Armani to Yves Saint Laurent, hips were shaking down the runway in arguably one of this season’s coolest fashion revivals: the peplum. We love this vintage inspired, two-toned number from Jason Wu with super skinny black waistband. It’s Mad Men meets Beverly Hills.
It’s hard to believe that Valentine’s Day is—gulp—tomorrow. Admit it—sometimes we procrastinate when shopping for that special someone (no matter how many flower ads and candygrams remind us what time it is). Life is busy, and we don’t always have the time to search for that jaw-dropping gift. Fear not, last-minute shoppers. This is the digital age, where no one has to settle for the scraps of Valentine’s Day eve.
Ever wish you could see how a product would look on you before you buy it? Well, with Pür’s new app for iPad and iPhone, you can do just that. It might just be the next best thing to your own personal makeup artist.
It’s no secret that Pϋr’s multitasking makeup can do a lot—condition the skin, correct common concerns, fight free radicals—all while delivering flawless coverage. But did you know your favorite 4-in-1, Correcting Primer and more can also help hydrate your skin? You’d better believe it.
With all the promise, wonder and excitement befitting a Hollywood movie, there really is no night like New Year’s Eve. Fireworks, champagne and that infamous midnight kiss all add to the mystery and magic of that final countdown. With a celebration this big, you’ll need a look that’s equally as explosive. Get ready to make sparks fly.
It may be the most wonderful time of year to you, but as far as your skin’s concerned, the holiday season means drier, colder days ripe for cracking and chapping. Instead of spending your days slathering on cream after cream, simplify your life with a multipurpose mist that hydrates from head to toe instantly—Fulvic Mineral Mist.
