Too Shy to Try the Head to Toe Look?

With a bright color like orange, sometimes it’s best to just simply add a pop! A little goes a long way, so no matter how you decide to tie in this trend, a lovely shade of orange will instantly brighten up your look! Luxury accessory brand, Hermès presented an array of orange handbags and accessories in their Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Not only is that a subtle way to tie this trendy color into your look, it’s easy and chic! Wearing a belt, handbag, a scarf, and even something as simple as a really cute cocktail ring will effortlessly keep you in style. When it comes to beauty, little touches such as nail polish or lipstick would be a really cool way to incorporate this trend. Member in the orange family such as Tomato, Pumpkin, Carrot, Tangerine and Papaya, are a few colors (fruits and vegetables) that work well when paired with neutrals.

 

Tangerine is a really cool orange! It’s fun, fresh, and vibrant! You can pretty much wear this color with anything. If you want to go head to toe in tangerine, definitely do so! Most of the Spring/Summer 2012 collections have specifically used this color for a head to toe look because of its beautiful hue!



Tomato is the darkest shade of orange, also known as red-orange. In most cases, when choosing a lip color in the orange family, this is it! If you’re going to do an orange lip you either have to go for a pretty pale hue of orange or go bright and bold! It would be best to go with this look if your ensemble is toned down with a neutral color pallete of white, nude, or tan. Over doing the color with be too much.

 
Pumpkin is one of the more common shades of orange. Popular amongst leather goods and handbags, this color is definitely a go for accessories! With its warm hue and hint of a neutral tone, pairing this color with pieces in your closet makes it easier to follow this trend and complete you're look!


Carrot is also one of the more common shades of orange! Not only does this make a great nail polish color, it looks awesome with everything. As we mentioned before, orange looks amzing on almost every skin tone, so if your looking for a color that brings out your complexion the most, this is the orange to go for!



Neon Orange is a very bright shade of orange which is usually found in sportswear. This color also makes for a great for a nail color! Be fun and daring in the brightest shade of orange. Pairing this color with others of the neon family such as neon pink, green yellow, and electric blue creates a super fun retro look, while remaining current with the latest trend!



Papaya is a pale tint of orange, which can be considered as a pastel. This is definitely a great color to wear during Spring and Summer! Wearing papaya with any other shade of orange is really an amazing way to cover so many trends! From rocking a pastel, color blocking with other shades in this color family, and by simply being orange, if done the right way, this color can cover three trends in one!

TREND ALERT: COLOR BLOCKING

Next season, spring instantly becomes alive with another major trend, color blocking! Color blocking has resurfaced from the iconic 60’s and has be seen in colorful designer collections for Spring/Summer 2012. Designers and fashion brands such as Oscar De La Renta, Peter Som, and Preen have presented this trend, leaving runways flooded with a mix of mild to vibrant hues!

There are a few key factors to take into consideration when putting together your look. First, choose colors that work best for you, then choose colors that complement each other and lastly, choose what pieces you’re going to color block! With a wide spread of colors, there are so many ways you can incorporate this color blocking trend into your look! One of the easiest ways to follow this trend would be to wear a color-blocked dress. Choosing a color blocked dress that works great with your personal style, gives you the confidence to pull of this look effortlessly!

Here are a few Jovani color-blocked dresses that will work for you!

Bold and Bright
Go bold with this bright and electrifying multicolored striped Jovani dress! (Jovani style 171907) This dress is young, fun, and flashy! Paring this dress with different color accessories (as seen on the model above) is a great way to fully embrace this trend!


Classic and Chic!
For a basic color-blocking look, this Black, White, and Pink embellished dress 
(Jovani style 171677) is an easy and classic way to wear this trend. Basic neutral colors like black and white allows you to add a pop of color and excitement to your look!



Simple and Subtle!
This coral, yellow, pink, and metallic beaded dress (Jovani style 71313) is a very sleek way to wear this color blocking trend! The dress is easy, simple, and incorporates three simple colors which works well with every skin tone. Along with the colors, the metallic beading of this dress naturally gives you a glowing effect adding even more color to you aura!



Dark and Daring
This multicolored short sleeved sequins cocktail party dress (Jovani style 171471) works great if you want to incorporate just a little color but still remain daring. This Jovani cocktail dress will be sure to turn heads with the daring length and gleaming colors!

Elegant and Easy!
This Jovani one shoulder sequins dress (Jovani style 9397) is your classic little black dress with a twist! With two shades of pink on one side and two shades of purple on the other, along with the touch of green, instantly adds fun to this look. This full length sequins gown is definitely the go to dress if you want to look elegant and follow this trend.



Monochromatically Color Blocking
You can follow this trend by wearing items that are tints and shades of the same color. You could build your whole outfit from shades of pink! If you are feeling more adventurous, you could mix colors that are in the same family. Pinks and reds or blues and greens work well too. Whether the hues are different shades of the same color, or colors in the same color family, this monochromatic look creates a powerful statement! You can even color block with denim going from the lightest shade to the darkest shade! If you prefer a sleek and chic way of dressing, then this would be perfect for you!

Color Blocking with Accessories
Jovani "Bailey" Shoe
Once you've got your main hues presented in your outfit, take color-blocking to the next level with accessories! If you've got a deep-hued top, skirt or dress, pair it with bright accessories and vice-versa. A bright yellow top looks great with dark blue bracelets, and a bright pink skirt pairs nicely with a deep purple shoe. This works well if you already have a colorful wardrobe and have the slightest idea how to put some of your pieces together. Look around in your closet and play with what you’ve got!


Color Blocking with Separates
When it comes to color-blocking with separates, the easiest way to pull off this look would be to pair a bright hue with a neutral hue. Once you've gotten the hang of it, pair two bold colors. If you’ve already gotten the hang of it and you’re actually daring enough, wear a bright colored Jovani cocktail dress with a bright colored pair of tights and shoes! If you want to get retro, rev up the look with colorful accessories as we mentioned above. However, if you’re a beginner, try starting with a neutral top in either nude, black, or white and a bright colored bottom! Those neutral colors will work well with bright colors, allowing you to have fun with your look!


If you come to the point where you are unsure as to what colors to put together, take a look at a fashionistas best friend, the color wheel!

Colors opposite from each other, usually work the best when worn together. Red & green and yellow & blue are basic primary colors that works well! Whether it’s tied together within a dress, with a mixture of accessories, or  paired with separates, it works!


Take a look in your closet, and play dress up with a bunch of your colorful clothes. See what works, and see what doesn't! When you figure it out, try incorporating this color blocking trend into your look.

When it comes to fashion, reinventing yourself is probably one of the best things you can do to update your style! A few accessories, and maybe a little make up can help, but going for a dress you can wear two ways will instantly give you a whole new look! These type of dresses are usually very popular in wedding dresses, however, Jovani has these convertible fashions in prom dresses and cocktail dresses too! 

These Jovani dresses start off as long beautiful evening dresses, but when the skirt is removed, it instantly turns into a very fun and fabulous short dress! So let's say you have an event, you can make an entrance one way,  and enjoy the rest of your night in another! This would not only "wow" your guests, but it will give you a new look and a new attitude! 
 
Photographed wearing the dress already? Wear it another way and no one would even know! When going to an event or party, it's more than likely that you will be photographed, and everyone knows, you couldn't possibly be seen wearing the same dress again. For this reason, you will benefit entirely from purchasing one of these Jovani dresses, simply because you can wear it again! Even after you've made the photo of you in the dress your Facebook "profile pic!"

The thing about a Jovani convertible dress is, you're able to switch up your style without having to purchase another dress, because you're getting two dresses in one! This is very beneficial for the fashionably frugal! If you wore this dress to an event one way, by all means, show your inner fashion goddess and wear it again, in a complete different way. Switch up the accessories and there you go! Just by changing your shoes and accessories, that one of a kind Jovani dress, now has another opportunity to shine!

These dresses are perfect for proms and after party dresses, and ideal for birthdays. Switching up your look is more than saving money, being photographed a bunch of times, and making an entrance, its about having fun!

2012 Miss America Pageant

Like many of the fans of Jovani Fashions, "Miss America represents the highest ideals. She is a real combination of beauty, grace, and intelligence, artistic and refined. She is a type which the American Girl might well emulate." This was said by the Atlantic City Chamber of Commerce President Frederick Hickma.


This Saturday, January 14th, live on abc, Miss America of 2011, Teresa Scanlan, will be crowning this years winner in a beautiful Jovani evening dress


At the pageant, everyone in the audience will receive the 2012 issue of Miss America Magazine! The magazine features 2011 Miss America, Teresa Scanlan wearing a number of beautiful Jovani dresses, along with features of the former Miss Americas, this year's 53 contestants, the 2012 Miss America preliminary hosts, national judges, and more!


Embellished one Shoulder Evening Gown (Style 8102)





Terri Polo (Left) Dena Blizzard (Right)
Also, be sure to tune in to see Jovani Fashions worn by Meet the Parents actress, Teri Polo, and Former Miss America, Dena Blizzard!
As we know, besides the personal interview, talent, swimsuit, evening wear, and onstage question portion, these Miss America Pageants aren't entirely judged, based on the contestants beauty and brains, you've got to have the entire package! 

Although we personally think a fabulous Jovani dress is more than enough to win the judges over, Miss Americas 2012 panel of judges may think otherwise. According to Polo, "judge from the field of talent," its not about becoming a pop icon on a reality show. Which is a bit contrary to the fact that the daughters of Kris Jenner, "judge from the Field of beauty" are just that! Polo also states, "it’s about her being accepted as an all-around package of being a sensational woman with brains, talent -- and beauty. All 53 of these girls qualify for that criteria. It’s very difficult to choose.“ 

With Polo, Blizzard, and Kris Jenner as hosts and judges, this years Miss America pageant should be very interesting; and with beautiful Jovani dresses worn by Miss America, the host, and judge, just makes it all worth watching!
