While you might be asking yourself who would want to wear a Beatrice-esque fascinator, there are actually a lot of pretty, and more subtle, versions on the market in muted colors and smaller accents. In fact, we're going to suggest you wear one. They're the season's hottest new trend in hats and hair accessories. Plus, we have six more great looks to consider for your summer dates.
From the moment I saw Kate Middleton step out of that car and make her way into Westminster Abbey, I knew I was witnessing an iconic style moment. Looking every bit as elegant and poised as Grace Kelly, the new princess was exquisite as she made the long walk down the aisle, donning an Alexander McQueen confection with lace sleeves and a ten-foot train, to meet her prince at the altar... OK, if the royal-wedding fashion didn't make you swoon, then we so need to find you a sense of sartorial romanticism. If you need a little help, allow me. Even beyond Princess Catherine's obvious trend-setting gown, there was a lot to love about the fashion at Friday's nuptials.
Like the rest of the fashion universe, I am dying to see Kate Middleton arrive at Westminster Abbey on Friday. The anticipation and speculation has been swirling since November: What will her gown look like? Who will design it? Will she sport a train? A veil? Lace sleeves? I'm beyond glad the wedding is this week, because I'm not sure I can wait much longer! No one knows for sure what Kate will wear. Her style choices have been kept under lock and key. But it's wedding week, so let's celebrate by furthering the speculation. I've compiled a few predictions for Kate's wedding-day look. In just a few days, we'll know if I'm spot-on or if I've totally missed the mark (finally!).
I don't know that a formal survey's been done, but I think it's safe to say that in the eyes of most straight men in America, turbans on a women's head aren't hot. Neither are ostrich-feather miniskirts, utility pants, or capes. To many guys, tight, form-fitting, and revealing fashions constitute "sexy." And isn't that what fashion is supposed to be all about? Getting us to look at one woman rather than another?
Some trendy pieces seem like they come with "Runway Only" signs plastered across the fronts. Or at least completely covered in WARNING tape. They're tricky. And scary. Basically, they're intimidating to the point where no matter how pretty you think they are, you tend to throw them back on the shelf at the store and walk away feeling like you dodged a bullet: Phew! I almost wasted money on that thing I'd never wear! Well, no more, ladies. You can wear trendy items. You just need to learn how to avoid a few pitfalls along the way. We're about to get you so hooked on the spring season's hottest looks, you'll want to take them for a whirl the next time you have a date. We apologize to your wallet in advance, since you'll now be plucking new clothes off shelves like mad.
Bold lips were all over the spring runways. Red, orange, fuchsia, watermelon—you name it, that lipstick color was probably present. In fact, it was one of my favorite looks for the season. Now, I may not be taking the bright-orange lipstick leap, but I'm also not necessarily opposed to injecting a little bit of high fashion into my beauty routine. It's fun to work a smoldering red pout or statement deep pink now and then, right? Well, I think so, but I wondered if guys would be quite as crazy about this bold beauty trend. So, I asked a few.
We rely on our first-date outfits to do many things: to seduce, create confidence, make a killer first impression. But we've never relied on a dress to make a phone call. It may sounds like an April Fools' joke, but the cell-phone dress is real. And shockingly, it's kind of sexy.
Single women, rejoice: The New York Times has confirmed that you aren't actually like Carrie Bradshaw. While pop culture's single women have a reputation bankrupting themselves on shopping sprees, the typical single woman actually spends her money on practical ventures like housing and transportation. In fact, single women spend less than 5 percent of their income on clothing, haircuts, manicures, and the like.
Some people look like their dogs, but even stranger? People who look like their significant others. It's one of those things you sometimes don't notice at first, until you do and then it's all you can think about. Well, turns out, those lookalike couples might be on to something: the secret to relationship success.
Whether your favourite pair of shoes is a sexy stiletto or sporty sneakers; your shoes speak volumes about your personality. Girls love to buy new shoes for a hot date, but many are unaware of the importance of shoes in sending out messages about themselves. All shoes convey some sort of message about our personalities and tendencies. When women are going on a first date they often pay far more attention to what designer clothing they are going to wear whithout realising what huge difference a well selected pair of shoes can make. The stats show that the average woman has approximately 25 pairs, and each can send a different signal.
Do You Dress Up For Your Significant Other?: Yes No
Ladies, where did things go so wrong that we’re giving up food, sex, and lolcats in exchange for a man who knows his Kors from his Klein? A study shows women really, really want men to learn how to dress better.
We know men aren't always on board with the fashion and beauty items women love. (Yeah, we thought those harem pants were cool and trendy too. Our guys weren't quite as sure.)

You might have something that makes you truly, charmingly unique, or you may have a combination of all of these.
