Spring 2014 Style Inspiration: What to Wear to Attend a Conference, Panel, or Pageant
By Danielle Nicole

Happy Tuesday ladies!
This spring is all about conferences, pageants, and panels, and Fashion Bomb reader Rashida will be attending one very soon!

She wrote writes, “Hi FashionBomb! I will be in attendance at a pageant that celebrates natural hair and wanted to know what is a stylish yet comfortable outfit to wear since the contest runs 3 hours long?”

The key to pulling off a comfortably chic ensemble is to dress up casual pieces. Jazz up simple wardrobe staples with punchy prints and noteworthy accessories to create your desired look.

For look #1, pluck a pastel blue v neck jumpsuit (find similar style here) accented by a botanical print clutch, silver block heel sandals, and a beaded braided necklace in a peachy hue.

Cap off the look with a spring inspired beauty palette including a creamy coral-pink lip and a pastel green nail lacquer.

A knee length skirt in a playful print adds a stylish twist to black and white staples. Mix in a basket weave clutch, a beaded tassel pendant necklace, and sunburst button earrings.

Lastly, add a vibrant eyeshadow option and a bubble gum pink mani for an additional pop of color.

And one of my favorite wardrobe must haves this season is a chic pair of culottes. Give the look an unexpected spin with a lavender gingham print knitted sweater.

Add additional flare with a leather clutch bag in an etched print, a lace-up cutout bootie or a printed flat, and a statement jewelry piece. Complete the look with a sassy metallic lid.

 And that’ll do it! See even more conference style inspiration in our Real Style post from this weekend.

See anything that catches your eye?

Kate Moss For Topshop Collection Is Here! Let’s Go Through The Good, Bad, And Girl Bye Lewks

Kate Mossophiles rejoice: The full lookbook of the model’s collaborative collection with Topshop has arrived. You can begin planning that ‘throw-it-in-the-bag-spree’ that’ll cost you anywhere from $70 to $1,200 per item (side note: 1k? TOPSHOP, YOU’RE DRUNK) available in-store, and online at Topshop, ShopBAZAAR.com, Net-a-Porter and Nordstrom.

Kate Moss’ collection, inspired by her wardrobe, features lots of fringe. Is it official that fringe is happening? 

Top Shop Kate Moss Fringe

Like, even fringe as sleeves, which is really confusing. But really appropriate if you want to wear a chic straight jacket on Halloween.

Or if you wanna be a chic witch. 

Kate Moss Top Shop7

It’s hard not to be here for the pajama trend. Ditching jeans for silky bottoms – YES.

Wearing a scarecrow as a top. NO.

Nods to the ’90s are sprinkled throughout the collection, including the ankle length, black floral printed dress for the Clarissa Darling in you. (Please note that no one but Kate Moss could fit into the below)

 We’re not mad at this freakum dress embellished with tons of brocade. The freakum dress is essential for all the spring date nights you have planned. #TINDERWARDROBE

Spring 2014 Style Inspiration: Swimwear Trends For Your Next Vacation
By Danielle Nicole

Swimsuit season has arrived! Well, almost. And as the temperatures continue to rise and we embrace the warmer weather with open arms, I’m sure a number of you ladies are preparing for spring and summer vacations to beach front and tropical destinations. So, today’s style inspiration is right on time.

Tata writes, “I’m going on a vaca…I need new on-trend swimsuit ideas. What are the must-have bathing suit options according to body type?”
With a quick Google search, you can find any number of articles listing swimsuit options best fit for each specific body type. So instead of reinventing the wheel, I thought I would create a fun post focusing on how to style a few of the season’s most noteworthy swimwear trends. Without further ado, let’s dive in…
Swap your traditional one piece swimsuit for a sexy cutout number like this Agent Provocateur Mazzy Swimsuit for an updated take on a classic vacation go-to. Sass things up with a Eugenia Kim two-tone sun hat, a python quilted clutch, Alexander Wang sunglasses, and Giuseppe Zanotti Metal Ball Detail Flat Thong Sandals.

What to Wear on Vacation Agent Provocateur Mazzy Cutout Swimsuit Giuseppe Zanotti Leopard Wedge Sandal Topshop Palm Print Playsuit Malini Murjani Taupe Python Quilted ClutchWhen you’re done frolicking on the sands, slip into a palm print playsuit and a pair of leopard print wedge sandals for an ultra-tropical vibe.

Give your beach look a retro feel with a high-waist bikini bottom and a matching bandeau top.
What to Wear On Vacation Topshop Tropical High Waist Bikini Nasty Gal Shoe Cult Tease Wedge Nine West Cassie Straw Clutch Visconti &amp; Du Reau Suede Fringe Maui Thong SandalCat eye sunglasses and a woven straw clutch give the look a Copa Cabana feel while a fringe thong sandal or a sturdy nude wedge and a simple bar necklace add a stylish update. Throw in tropical shades for your beauty palette to give your vacation look a sizzling touch.

Bring your athletic side to the beach with a sporty chic inspired swimsuit like this Alexander Wang mesh-paneled racer-back bikini.What to Wear on Vacation Alexander Wang Mesh-Paneled Racer Back Bikini Chloe Perforated Medium Baylee Bag Saint Laurent Classic 13 Aviator Sunglasses Asos Fully Monty SunglassesStrap up a pair of comfy flat sandals and pluck a perforated carry-all to tote all of your needed essentials. With a few added accessories like a beaded tassel necklace and gold deco earrings, you’ll have this sporty look on lock.

And last but not least, ruffle things up in an aqua one-piece. Incorporate black and white elements for a sophisticated beach ready look.

Add a pop of color with a teal and gold beauty palette and throw in gold jewelry and a pair of sunglasses for the final touch.

What do you ladies think? Are you ready to hit the beach (or poolside) in one of today’s looks?

I went to target but I purposely didn't go to the women's section. I had too long a journey to embarrass myself like that on the train with all those bags. I should've checked it out tho, Im never in that area and there might be different things

code* I didn't look for that blazer epitome
