Studio 54-inspired details for guys and girls add extra edginess to a look. Get glammed up with a silver sequin skirt and top combo. Layered bracelets for guys and a guitar-printed tee are date night worthy when paired with a sport coat.
Brightly Colored Bottoms
Real men wear brights! Step up your game like a champ with red, slim-cut pants and a plaid, short-sleeved shirt. Add diversity and interest to your wardrobe with navy suede driving loafers and a navy fedora hat. There is nothing like a well-dressed man to turn heads!
The floral trend is in full bloom! It is an easy way to add feminine style to your look. This printed maxi wrap dress is universally flattering and gives the appearance of legs for days.
White linen pants and a matching vest for guys is a fresh look when paired with street sneakers. Add a boldly-printed shirt for contrast and you will be ready for a special occasion or night out.
For both men and women, denim on denim is a hot trend that comes to life with layered accessories. Dress up skinny jeans with a bold printed kimono wrap and silk head scarf. Long fabric necklaces add interest and flair with colorful tassels. Guys can have fun with accessories, too, from leather lariats to skinny scarves.
Be bold with color and a fabulous bell sleeve. This flirty yellow top comes to life when paired with high-waisted, red gaucho pants and bright red booties. The long, beaded necklaces and hoop earrings pull the entire look together, from head to toe.
