With the Academy Awards just around the corner, otherwise known as the crown jewel of awards season, fashionistas will be glued to the red carpet action, captivated by all the jaw-dropping outfits.
While we’re dreaming of events where we can pack on the bling and walk the red carpet, let’s face it, they’re not exactly looks that we can rock every day. Or is it? Luckily for you, we can help you translate the hottest trends seen on the red carpet into wearable looks for any occasion
The Upgraded LBD
Red Carpet look: As seen on Beyonce, Ciara, and Jessie J., the classic little black dress made a statement in a big way with lace, tulle and plunging necklines.
Everyday look: You too can make a statement with strategic inspiration from this trend. Make any dress a standout by playing with cutouts, textures, and embellishment. Want a more demure look? Look for a dress that has sheer cutouts, for just a hint of skin and sex appeal.

The Statement Piece
Red Carpet look: Bling, Bling and more bling. At this year’s Grammys, celebrities were quick to show off all that glitters. The most notable trend was the eye-catching emerald jewelry seen on Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga and, once again, Beyonce.
Everyday look: Don’t fret Poshers! You do NOT have to refinance your house to fund your sparkling obsession. (Believe us, we’ve thought about it.) Instead, find that perfect statement piece on Poshmark at a fraction of the price. Add a pop of color to your workday outfit with pretty emerald studs, or add a touch of allure with dangling earrings. Want to be a showstopper? Top off your outfit with an emerald necklace and people will definitely stop and stare, for all the right reasons.

Shiny and Slinky Dresses
Red Carpet look: From 2014 to 2015, sleek and stylish dresses have been a staple on the red carpet. Seen on stars like Angelina Jolie and Kate Hudson in 2014 and on stars like Katy Perry at this year’s Grammys, dresses embellished withbeading or a slinky material add a sense of luxury that we love.
Everyday look: Shine like a diamond! Wear an embellished dress in a shorter hemline to have the same sparkle without looking like a disco ball. Or wear a sparkly skirt with a casual top to add dimension and glam that will transform your everyday outfit. Don’t think you can wear sparkly clothes to the office? Look for pieces with an accent of metallic threads woven into the dress.
