I love the silhouette of a peplum detail on a top, dress, or skirt because it instantly adds a vintage element while maintaining a very modern, clean cut. Just goes to show you that you can be feminine without the miles and miles of ruffles! – Tram @ Phi-Style.com

The material once reserved for scuba suits and laptop sleeves has more recently been seen everywhere from models on runways to your everyday fashionista at dinner. Neoprene, the material hybrid feeling like a cross between foam and rubber, lends itself to a variety of wardrobe-related uses since it can showcase bright colors in their truest form, while also maintaining the shape of clothing amazingly. If your modern tastes are less inclined to soft chiffons, and more drawn to avant garde structural shapes, neoprene fabrics are something worth considering! – Tram @ Phi-Style.com

Its been awhile since I’d checked out JCrew‘s wedding options, but they’re still kickin’ it with great designs! I love the shorter dresses for elopements or city hall, and the long ones are just chic for any kind of wedding!

With this minimalist Derek Lam, the dress is the main focus and you don’t need much else except a smiling face.
