This week’s celebrity street style includes a few outfits that made the cut and a few that did not. Sometimes, something that may look good on a hanger should stay there and sometimes just one wrong choice can move a look from a great style to a bad one.
The first to make it to the A list is Actor Andrew Garfield, who was spotted on the streets of Berlin, wearing Burberry. Andrew is rocking the chocolate brown suit and mixing in a crisp white button-down shirt, topped with a double-breasted, tan trench coat with shoulder epaulets and a turned up collar. (more…)
For women's fashion.
Have you ever noticed that certain colors go in and out of style. Maybe you thought it was a coincidence that the racks of your favorite store were all filled with similar hues. Just like people predict the newest sound in music, the next hot color was already decided for you before you even got to the store. There was Emerald Green, Tangerine, Honeysuckle and now Pantone, the authority on color, has called Dazzling Blue the color of Spring 2014. Expect to see it featured everywhere from dresses to bags to probably even cheap spinner suitcases! And fortunately, as spring colors go, this shade of blue can outlast the season.

Pantone, which began as a printing company in 1950, is a New Jersey company who is well known for their color matching system. It uses a standardization for reproducing colors. How Pantone is related to fashion is that they release a “Color of the Year”, which prompts clothing designers to use this color in their fashion creations for the up-coming year. For 2013, the color was Emerald Green and for 2014, the color is Dazzling Blue. You may recognize this particular tone of blue if you happen to be a Facebook user.
While I was taking a look at what the menswear designers had for 2014, I found a few items that were Pantone inspired. The first one is from the Canali Spring/Summer Collection at the Milan Fashion Week. It is a slim-fitting suite jacket and cuffed trousers in a tonal stripe done in “dazzling blue”. The brightness of the suit is contrasted by a darker blue polka dot tie, a white and blue polka dot dress shirt, and navy leather slip-ons.
The next menswear item in the color of the year with “dazzling blue” is a pair of blue and white floral slip-on shoes by Giorgio Armani, in the Spring 2014 collection. This particular pattern and color is a bold look in a shoe and may not be for everyone.
Another menswear item with the same color is done by Iceburg. It is a combination of trends with one being the vintage style baseball jacket and the other one is the color blocking with the gold, blue, and black asymmetrical design. The blue color makes the jacket pop.
Lastly, is an infusion of a brighter tone of Dazzling Blue with the crew neck, raglan sleeve sweater by Burberry. They keep the blue tone going with the blue suede lace-up shoes. However, if you are a guy who leans more towards the neutral colors, then the “Pantone Color of the Year” may not be for you.
