Over the Top with Taupe

I wore black Chanel before going goth became cool again. I painted with green at the same time Kate Moss did. When it comes to nail polish, I'll try just about any colour. But this season I'm sticking to just one, Over the Taupe.

Part of the OPI Bright Pair Collection, Over the Taupe has been spotted on the hands of Hollywood's fashion junkies such as Sandra Bullock, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Beckinsale and Lily Allen. So if you aren't sporting it already, now is the time to go Taupe.

So In It's Out

This next trend is so in it's out. Underwear as outwear brings a hint of the bedroom onto the street. Worn under a sheer blouse or chunky cardigan, 2010's pastel lingerie looks will bring unexpected sass to any outfit.

If you aren't yet ready to ditch your pants entirely in true Lady Gaga form, try this trend with Phillip Lim. This champagne silk-satin soft-cup bra with black polka dots is made of 97% silk and 7% elastane. With a stitched trim on top and adjustable lilac back, the 3.1 by Phillip Lim Polka-dot silk-satin bra is available at Net-A-Porter for $85.

Wear yours today and watch heads turn. If it feels good why keep it hidden?

Alexander Wang Wear

When dressing, I always consider balance. Done well, it's the right amount of effortless chic combined with unexpected details. For such a perfectly styled cool look, Alexander Wang is all that and then some.

Straight from Alexander Wang's 2010 runway is this grey cinched sweatshirt with leather shoulder cap accents in tawny. Complete with belt, the sweatshirt is lined in 100% silk. Pair it with your favourite pair of skinny jeans, and your hair in a messy braid like that worn by every Wang model. Get yours now at Nordstrom's stores for $595.
