Maxi Craze

I can't get over all the maxi's that are arriving here at Singer22. A maxi dress is a must have for the summer and thankfully Singer has a variety of options to choose from. Today we got in the Fighting Eel striped maxi dress which was amazing. The fabric was soft and cozy, and I love a great stripe. Then there is the Parker maxi, which I also loved because of the print. It was so different than anything I've seen, and also a really light material. My most recent purchase is the As Is asymmetrical dress. It is such a cool worn in black and I love the design the brand uses on all it's pieces we have in. It's also cool how on one side it's longer than the other, adds a little something to it. The best part is how affordable it is. If you haven't already done so, you should definitely invest into a long maxi – it's perfect for the beach and to walk around in style.

Playful Prints

Jump into summer with these fun, bright prints! Prints are a great way to add some flare and dimension to your look. A playful print in bright colors is a great way to wear brights. Dresses are a great way to show off this trend, Kim Kardashian looks stunning in this Mara Hoffman tribal print dress! I also love the look of fun printed shorts! These Sam & Lavi and Parker shorts are so cute with a solid top and platforms for a day to night look with some fun jewelry. If you just want a touch of these brightly colored prints incorporated into your outfits, try this fun Jen's Pirate Booty belt or a Theodora and Callum scarf!

Blue Life is the life!

Yesterday, we got in all the new Blue Life tops, the coziest things to shoot on a rainy day. What I love most about Blue Life is the fabric they use, but more so the colors. They always use the prettiest bold colors, on the softest worn in fabrics. They also tend to do a lot of asymmetrical cuts and tie dye. Asymmetrical and tie dye are my favorite because they always bring uniqueness to the table. Another great aspect of the Blue Life tops are that they are a greatoff the shoulder, worn in, bright colored t-shirt to wear over bathing suits and throw on with a pair of jean shorts. SINGER22 is the best place to find great tops, from comfy to chic, to comfy chic, it's always worth the purchase. I loved pairing the Blue Life with the same color Runway Dreamz short, I love mixing the same colors but different shades – I think it is such an awesome look. Since the shorts literally come in every single color, it's the perfect mix with Blue Life.

Heat things up this summer by pairing two pops of loud color.  I love how SomethingNavy paired her Wildfox graphic tee (casual) with Naven's more dressy shorts. The mix-match fits perfectly for an effortless look.

Who Wore It Best? Battle of Boulee

Actress, Jenna Dewan and E! News host, Giuliana Rancic both look uh-mazing in the Boulee Serena Dress. Giuliana opted for the blue version of the dress and added a black belt, long loose waves and dark nail polish to give her ensemble a bit of an edge. Jenna wore her Boulee dress while out in Vegas and accessorized her look with a nude clutch, a gold bangle and gold shoes. I am personally torn when it comes to picking a winner in this fashionista face off! So we turn to you and ask- who wore it best?

Who Wore It Best? Reese vs. Charlize

Chocolate and Peanut Butter, Chips and Salsa, Posh and Beckham. These are just some things that go incredibly well together. We can now add two new combos to this list! Reese Witherspoon and Charlize Theron in their J brand Houlihan Skinny Cargo Pants.

Reese paired her Skinny Cargos with a denim jacket, flat boots and a printed scarf for a dressed down look on the go. Charlize added a silk blazer, peep-toe booties an a cowl neck top to her J brand skinnys for a polished and pulled together look. I like both looks for different occasions but a small piece of me is partial to Charlize. However, this fashion face off is for you to decide- who wore it best??

Dark Demin RULES!

Dark Denim is the way to go. It can transition your look from casual to dressy. Versatility is key and they pretty much go with anything in your wardrobe.

We dig 7 For All Mankind, J Brand, Nudie, and AG.

Pair them with a top from Riviera Club or Vince to knock it out of the park.

LWD’s, please stand up…

There's no whiter's block when it comes to talking about these new and fabulous dresses! Not only do these dresses come back with a vengeance, but they also tell all of your "little black dresses" to take a seat. The time has come for your LWD.

White is the perfect color for spring (unless you're going to a wedding, in which case NO ONE but the bride should be wearing white!). This crisp and refreshing look goes well with any color and can be dressed up or down by simply using the perfect accessories.

The key to perfect white dresses is finding quality fabrics so it fits you well and lasts throughout weather conditions. For instance, the Kimberly Taylor Tyra Dress made out of 100% silk and the One Teaspoon Florence Dress in Vintage White made out of 100% cotton makes nice with mother nature for those perfect warm (and sometimes humid) spring and summer days ahead.

White isn't just for daytime either, the BOULEE Renee Dress, the Style Stalker Trust Fund Dress, and the Mark & James by Badgley Mischka One Shoulder Mini Dress are all examples of dresses that heat up the night. Keep it classic with black heels and accessories, or get creative and add a punch of springtime color, like a hot pink or lime green necklace. 

White is here to stay!

Blue Period

Reese Witherspoon is no newbie when it comes to setting style trends. I LOVED the blue hued frocks Reese wore to several of the premieres for her new film, Water For Elephants. Blue is a strong color that can be played up or down. As a fellow blonde I love mixing in cobalt blue dresses or tops into my wardrobe. Blue is very complementary against lighter hair colors. But for those of you with darker tresses, fear not! Blue looks lovely on you too! If you don't want your outfit to center around a big blue piece, try tying in some blue accessories this Summer. Below are some completely cravable blue pieces available now at Singer22.

RunwayDreamz

I have been waiting and waiting for these shorts to arrive in our studio to shoot. I have dreamt about them, there is a huge variety of colors and styles to choose from it's actually difficult to narrow it down. We are shooting every single one today so I get to see which one I love best. At first I wanted to do the denim split (two different color denims), but now that I see the pink and purple up close and personal, my mind is shifting. Perhaps I'll do both. I have been shooting all of them with the brand new Lita's that came in, that's officially the look for me. Lita's and mini ripped up denim shorts in different colors. I think that's just a blogger trend, but slowly turning into the Singer22 girl. As I've been working here, I feel as if I am really turning into the epitomy of a Singer22 girl. Our look is very edgy with a feminine twist/bohemian chic with a lot colors. A Singer22 girl will always stand out. These shorts are the perfect addition to anyone that shops on this websites wardrobe, however, if you don't already have a lita bootie, I suggest you get on that! Have you seen the Singer22 exclusives? Unreal.
