Red Carpet Style: SAG Awards

The Screen Actors Guild Awards seem like so much fun,
actors supporting actors, food and drinks during the show, and lots of great fashion...
What more could you want?!

The SAG red carpet is more casual relative to other awards shows.
A few trends of the night were bright colors, such as green, blue, fuchsia, and red. 
Classic black is always a fave on the red carpet. (if it ain't broke, don't fix it)

The fashion risk taker of night, Rose Byrne, wore an Elie Saab couture 
ivory jumpsuit that looked not only fresh and new, but incredibly chic. 

My picks for Best Dressed below.




The Best Dressed Male of the night goes to John Krasinski in a midnight blue suit.

Must-Have: Statement Necklace

Everything from your favorite white tee to your sexy LBD needs a little extra something. 
Take it to the next level by accessorizing with a bright and bold statement necklace

Gold & Turquoise is my fave pairing for a basic white top. 
A pop of Red pumps up a little black dress for date night.  
Play up sundresses with Coral and Yellow stones this spring. 

Below are a few statement necklaces from Piperlime.

Style Trend: Color Blocking

A huge trend on the red carpet is color blocking. 
Whether you're wearing a dress designed with different colors strategically placed 
or wearing a bright top in one shade and another bold tone on the bottom, 
it's easy to incorporate this trend into your wardrobe. 

Although color blocking is in fashion now, this trend is forecasted to be 
even bigger for the upcoming spring season.  
I can't wait to see pastel color blocking in the next few months. 


Below are some color blocking ensembles seen on celebrities.

When playing up one feature, keep the rest neutral.

Complexion:
instead of blush, try a luminizer to create a fresh face

Lips:
