…by putting a great floral or multi-colored scarf in your hair. Dolce & Gabbana went completely for the trend this season and it fit perfectly within their Sicilia theme. If you don’t have ideas how to wear a scarf in your hair, you can opt for the easy style of D&G or check out this cool video I found with 12 styles on how to wrap a scarf.

For the frill of it

One of the summer trends 2013 is ruffles & frills. And who would have thought there are so many ways of wearing ruffles: from the dramatic black/white looks of Balenciaga, to the more romantic versions from Chloe and the very colourful bright frills on the Gucci runway. It’s definitely a way to add some frivolity and femininity to your look. But keep it moderate and keep the frills on top of your dress or blouse, unless you are a flamenco dancer…

Jason Wu at Hugo Boss

GREAT news for all the business women out there. Jason Wu is the new artistic director for Hugo Boss Womenswear. He will definitely bring the necessary focus and edge to the female side of the brand.
“With the state-of-the-art facilities that are unique to the Hugo Boss design labs, I plan to develop a strong, feminine womenswear collection that reciprocates the brand’s authority in menswear.”

The German brand, mainly known for its business attire, has been struggling lately and that has shown also in declining sales. With Jason Wu, they hope to give the brand a new fashion injection. The 30-year-old Taiwan-born, New York-based designer is a real fashion wiz kid, loved by a lot of fashion editors & journalists and… the first lady Michelle Obama. His most recent collection (fall 2013) got again a lot of good reviews for of the strong female looks he sent down the runway.

I am very excited to see the spin he will be giving to the Hugo Boss woman! His first collection for the brand will be shown at February 2014’s New York Fashion Week.
