SHADY SUMMER: 2015 SUNGLASSES

When you're putting together your summer look you know you can't go anywhere without your favorite pair of sunglasses. Of course, these days they are year round staples but during the longer days of summer you want great protection and of course a fashionable pair that makes a great statement. So what's trending with sunnies this season? The retro vibe continues going strong, from the very round frames to the popular cat eye. Now, if you want a bit of a more modern look then you will certainly enjoy frames with floral patterns, colored frames or tinted lenses. Over-sized and square sunglasses were also big on the runway for spring/summer 2015 as well as lenses with the ombre effect. The fan favorite cat eyes and aviators. So make sure you find a pair that you are comfortable with and have a little fun with your selection, remember the fourth of July is days away. You can always have a basic pair for all occasions and then a funky, fashionable pair to  just lounge by the beach or pool. Below we are showing you some of our favorite styles from the spring/summer 2015 campaigns and picks to check out when you go shopping. Don't forget to comment below and share what your favorite sunnies style or shape that you prefer. Come back later this week for a bonus blog post right here at One Style at a Time!

FASHION FLOWER POWER

Florals may not be groundbreaking material for spring and summer fashion (hello, does anyone remember Miranda Priestly's sarcastic comment about florals for spring in the movie,"The Devil Wears Prada"). Yet it seems that these bold prints are now more of a year round staples so expect so see more come autumn-winter. Fashion designers did not skimp on presenting some really feminine and versatile looks for the spring and summer that included some of the most beautiful garden picks. It seemed many design houses were inspired by so many of these flowers and many achieved a sleek, modern and chic style. Now many find large bold prints can be too busy or unflattering so if you are on the shorter height, its best to keep a balance, less is more. As you can see from some of the highlighted choices below even the mini fashionistas have options to match the adult ready to wear. Accessorizing with this trend might be a great alternative if you want to keep things subtle. So whether you are into roses, daisies, carnations, tulips or pansies the inspiration is fun and taken from a page of some of earth's most beautiful creations.

IN THE WORDS OF MARILYN MONROE

The allure of Marilyn Monroe is timeless and on the rise as the years go by. We kick off the month of June with this Hollywood beauty as today she would have been 89 years old. She stands as one of the most iconic women in beauty and fashion. So many books have been written about her and so many films have been produced based on her life. Although her life was surrounded by flashing lights and fame, their were so many underlinings of sadness, illness and mystery up until her very end. Yet she took the world by storm with her girlish charm and bombshell looks. Decades later women continue to look up to Marilyn for her unapologetic curves. Today we live in a time where thinner is believed to be healthier and desirable. Yet, beauties like Ms. Monroe are still admired today for that full womanly figure. Today we honor some of the many famous quotes by Marilyn Monroe. We hope you enjoy this small tribute to the enigmatic old Hollywood beauty. 

Happy Birthday Norma Jean!

“I want to grow old without facelifts. I want to have the courage to be loyal to the face I have made.”

MET GALA 2015 RED CARPET

The most talked about gala in fashion took place on Monday, May 4th at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This year the Costume Institute takes a closer look at centuries of Chinese fashion and its impact on western culture. The exhibit called 'China: Through the Looking Glass will open its doors to the public on May 7th. Now back to the Met Ball and all the interesting moments at tonights gala. It's always interesting to see how celebrities will incorporate their style and the high fashion theme of the night. This year the fashion powers that be stated that there were no selfies allowed inside the doors of the event and live streaming was not available this year either. Still every social media outlet had plenty of minute to minute coverage. Upon the clock hitting 6pm EST the arrivals began and leading the red carpet was Anna Wintour in a floral Chanel Couture gown. Followed by the lineup of who's Hollywood's elite. Everyone from Jennifer Lawrence, Madonna, SJP, Anne Hathaway, Katie Holmes, Jennifer Lopez, Kerry Washington and more. There were several gowns that really were quite beautiful and some of the trends were tones of green, red, gold and poppy inspired florals. Ornate headpieces were a big trend of the night and some of the ladies who 'headlined' (yes the pun is intended) this trend were SJP, Rihanna, Selena Gomez and Kate Hudson. It was nice to see some celebrities make an effort to carry through references of Chinese fashion in their gowns. However, it almost seemed like the main theme of the night was almost naked, barely there, sheer and wearing undergarments was well, almost not even an option. Some examples would be Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian and Miley Cyrus. What's ironic is that Rihanna who usually teases with provocative photo shoots and pushes the envelope on her social media was the one with the most fabric. Rumor has it she walked the red carpet in the end because they needed to clear the space for her gown. Enough said.

And so, we have rounded up our eight picks for best dressed, favorite fashion designer/celebrity duo, best dressed couple, top picks for hair and makeup. As you know, One Style at a Time doesn't highlight the worse dressed, BUT we did find the need to bring you some 'oh my gosh' over the top moments. So fashion readers who were your favorites at the Met Gala? Which starlets did you love and which did you dislike? How do you feel about all the barely there gowns? Tell us what you really think. Leave your comments and share your thoughts.
