The Little Black Dress: Styled for 3 Occasions

Alicia here from Cheetah is the New Black! I'm a big fan of the drop-waist silhouette and thought it would be fun to style this little black dress multiple ways. This DVF number can easily be transformed from day to night, worn to the office as well as that special event, and will remain a favorite in your closet for years to come!

Bold or Elegant: 2 Looks for Your Bridal Shower

Hi, Shoptalk readers! I'm Nicole from Nicole's Guide To Style, and I am beyond thrilled to be collaborating with Shopbop on their blog today. Shopbop has always been the first site I browse in the morning and my go-to for on trend pieces, so this is a real treat!

The summer months seem to entail attending at least one engagement party, bridal shower, or wedding, and I've got all you brides covered with what to wear. Are you a bold and dramatic or an elegant and sweet bride? I'll show you how to work both looks with a simple swap of accessories. Better yet, get more mileage out of the dress, and rock both looks to different events! If you're not a bride this look would still work for a special occasion like a birthday or cocktail party. Just make sure you don't wear it to someone else's wedding event. White is a big fashion don't for a wedding guest!

The Dress:
Alice + Olivia Chiffon One Shoulder Dress

Bold & Dramatic Bride:
Diane Von Furstenberg Lytton Clutch
Dara Ettingner Lillian Earrings
Charles Albert Quartz Cuff
Jacquie Aiche Hand Chain
Boutique 9 Justine Pumps

Elegant & Sweet Bride:
Whiting & Davis Crystal Clutch
Shashi Pave Earrings
Maison Martin Margiela Ring
Jennifer Zeuner Love Bracelet
Alejandro Ingelmo Grace Pumps

XOXO, Nicole

I love dressing in festival style all summer. I go with something comfortable and loose, a bit hippie-ish, but still stylish. I'd wear this outfit to any festival. It's comfy and easy to move around in, and the vintage sunglasses and the tassel bag finish the look perfectly!

Hi, Shoptalk readers! This is Jen Ramos, founder and editor over at MadeByGirl blog, where I love sharing the latest on design, fashion, and food with all my readers! On top of that, I also own an online shop by the same name and manage to create bright and modern paintings for my latest venture, Cocoa & Hearts. Speaking of paintings, this series is all about how color palettes in a painting can inspire an outfit. For this post, I decided to bring you three of my own paintings from the COLORS series, and pair each of them up to an outfit resembling the colors. Neat, huh? Let me know what you think and which is your favorite.

Summer in the City: The Uniform

Happy Friday Shoptalk readers! It’s Nina Rand from The HSS Feed and I’m excited to share some of my summer style with you.

My summer in the hot city will be filled with casual days spent at the park or the pool followed by light dinners with friends out on the patio--either at home or one of our favorite restaurants. And during this crazy summer on-the-go, I’ll practically be living in my summer uniform: a bright maxi skirt with light, comfortable tops. I love this combination because it is so versatile, light and can go from day to night--you can lunch at the park in a light solid tank, flat sandals and a hat, then just switch up the top to add some color, throw on some wedges and an armful of bracelets and you’re set for a dinner out.

I love this bright silk skirt from 10 Crosby by Derek Lam paired with my favorite James Perse tank, Loeffler Randall flats, Maison Scotch hat, and a nice big Tory Burch bag for daytime. To change it up for the evening, this Tibi striped top with natural and gold accessories from Tory Burch, Bop Basics, and Dolce Vita make the perfect casual dinner outfit.
