Mood Change: Dress(es) by Personality

BLG-1386 Boutique-Support--Dresses-by-PersonalityPersonal style? It’s about more than being trendy. I’m a firm believer it should mirror your personality, too. So whether you’re a hopeless romantic or a go-with-the-flow type, peep the best prints, colors, and shapes that will convey your character at first (stylish) glance.

The Total Classic: They’re called classics for a reason. LBDs, seamed sheaths, and asymmetrical silhouettes can carry you from day to night effortlessly.

The Romantic: Soft tones, sweetheart necklines, and floral prints? Just style with a simple clutch and classic flat sandal, then let date night commence.

The Modernist: Chevron prints, colorblocked minis, and bold stripes will put you on the fashion front lines.

The Queen of the Evening: Floor-length gowns, intricate detailing, and dress-up fabrics like silk and chiffon will have you red-carpet ready in no time.

The Glamour Girl: For your next night on the town, break out the fitted, the sequined, and the (oh-so-sultry) bold hues. Paint the town red.

The Free Spirit: All you need to achieve the hippie-chic look? A high-low hem, breezy maxi, or tie-dyed print.

Our It’s a Match: Dresses by Personality Boutique opens Friday, April 5, at 11AM ET.

5 Style Bytes You May Have Missed

@thecoveteur: “Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants.” – Karl Lagerfeld instagr.am/p/V7To6sRBeq/
If you call the sign of defeat not moving from the couch on Sundays, then yes. Guilty.

@ManRepeller: Not sure if you’re wondering, but I am listening to The Black Eyed Peas under bed covers in a plaid onesie.
WWKLD What would Karl Lagerfeld do (or say)?

@elementstyle: Cake. I wish I had cake.
Things that would make Wednesday infinitely better.

@mindykaling: Thanks about my WGA dress, guys. It’s Saint Laurent and shoes, too. The sleeves covered a burn on my arm I got last week.
When long sleeves come in handy.

@HotelFoxtrot: Leaving the gym, purple yoga pants and purple winter coat, not a well planned out outfit, I kinda look like Grimace.
Or a really fit Barney.

Red Hot: Stylish Celebrity Couples We Love

iStock_000003951574SmallWhile we love to hypothesize about the romances of our favorite celebrities (looking at you, Taylor Swift), there’s one thing better than the cycle of makeups and breakups in the spotlight – the fashion. These stylish lovebirds are always on our best-dressed list:

Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen: A Brazilian supermodel and an NFL superstar with runway good looks? Okay, fine. You guys win.

David and Victoria Beckham: Celebrity designer meets (and marries) hunky athlete. Every date night is a fashion statement for these two.

Jay-Z and Queen Bey: Because – she’s Beyoncé.

Barack and Michelle Obama: The First Couple are the new Kennedys. Michelle has become a fashion icon in her own right, and her signature style – pairing designer labels with brands like J.Crew – continuously stuns.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge: Kate Middleton’s fashion influence has a near-global reach. From the Alexander McQueen wedding dress to her grocery-store attire, Kate’s style has morphed into a cult-like obsession. (And the Prince in Irish Guards? Yes, please.)

Which celebrity couple do you think is the most stylish?

Going, Going, Gone Viral: Marc Jacobs Loves Diet Coke

As the new Creative Director for Diet Coke, Marc Jacobs has been tasked with celebrating the company’s 30th birthday in Europe. And based on this video, “celebrating” means Marc stripping down in a photo booth (don’t worry, it’s still SFW). For a man who’s almost 50, we say: if you’ve got it, flaunt it.

Do you have other videos that must be seen? Share them in the comments below, or tweet us @ruelala.
