5 Trends from the Oscars You Can Wear Right Now
February 28th, 2017
The guys and gals of Hollywood slayed on the Red Carpet this season, but perhaps no awards show fashion parade was more highly anticipated than that of the Oscars.
For 2017, the Oscars Red Carpet lit up with trends ranging from a celebration of metallics and applique to vivid white, sexy velvet, shiny eyes and deep crimson lips.
Want to integrate these fabulous trends into your wardrobe now? Here are my top picks for bringing the Red Carpet to your very own closet.
The Trend: Bright White
As Seen On: Naomie Harris, Priyanka Chopra, Karlie Kloss
Why It’s Hot: The white dressed that rocked the Oscars were all about modern femininity. Think structure, unique cutouts, intricate beading and unexpected extras.
Get the Look: Diane von Furstenberg Asymmetrical Twig Lace Wrap Dress
The Trend: Crimson Lips
As Seen On: Brie Larson, Emma Roberts, Emma Stone
Why It’s Hot: The expected true red lip was replaced this awards season with a deeper tone of crimson red. It’s a great choice for fair skin tones, and a modern way to update the classic red lip for spring.

The Trend: Shimmer and Shine
As Seen On: Nicole Kidman, Jessica Biel, Emma Stone
Why It’s Hot: Simple gold beaded or sequined dresses were updated for the Oscars Red Carpet, thanks to intricately patterned applique, beaded fringe, a nod to champagne hues and even sheer fabric distressing.

Why It’s Hot: Velvet — both crushed and classic — saw a huge comeback this fall. From red to navy to black, the luxe fabric was seen on everything from dresses to camisoles, pants and jackets. Now, the trend is staying strong into spring with a sexy interpretation by Hollywood’s leading ladies.
