With only a little over a month left to the summer season, Fashion Reverie has compiled a collection of red carpet looks that worked or didn’t work so well on some of your favorite celebrities. One thing stands out for summer 2017, celebrities adorned themselves in a lot of 2017 spring/summer trends and some carryover looks from summer 2016. And Fashion Reverie was front and center detailing all the great fashion from summer red carpets

Low-Cut Necklines

Celebrities can get away with fashion looks your average consumer could never pull off. And this late summer red-carpet season had lots of looks that only worked for celebs. That said; there were lots of celebs flaunting low-cut neckline. And those low cut neckline screamed, “Hey everybody look at my chest!” Taraji P. Henson makes this look work well … because she’s Taraji P Henson and she really is a bad ass. But I doubt many women are willing to risk having themselves on full display or be willing to endure the yards of double back tape necessary to keep a nip slip from happening.

Flat dress shoes

Okay Fashion Reverie is cheating a little bit since only two stars have done this, but every trend has to start somewhere! In recent years celebs have been leading the way to challenging unfair dress codes. Until now heels were mandatory at many functions. Who can forget an incident at Cannes in 2015 when two women were turned away from a red carpet screening because their shoes were flat?  Gal Gadot was repeatedly asked why she insisted on wearing flats during her Wonder Woman promotions to which she replied multiple times, “flats are more comfortable.”  Years of wearing high heels can injure your spine. Andie MacDowell has picked up the mantle of flat shoes and now it’s your turn.  Onward and upward!

Rock It!

Sequins

Many things that look fantastic on the red carpet just don’t translate well to most consumers. When celebs appears on the red carpet, they wants all eyes on them and fully sequined gowns is a great way to grab attention. (It’s also why drag queens wear lots of sequins.)  You need to be okay with having all eyes on you. Additionally, sequined gowns are very expensive and fragile—the tiniest bit of friction can cause the shiny discs to fall off.  And those shiny discs can make the garment very heavy. Bottom line, sequined gowns are just wildly impractical.

Embroidery

This trend began a couple of years ago but it’s still going strong and the best thing about this trend is you can do it yourself (DIY). Embroidery looks complicated but in truth if you can thread a needle you can embroider. It’s time consuming but you can do it while you clear out your out your closet of summer garments as the weather chills.  Denim is a perfect fabric for embroidery and very on trend now. You can find DIY tutorials online and the basic tools (thread, needles, and a embroidery hoop) are inexpensive. You can create anything you want!

Rock It!
