Best Colors to Wear this Summer 2015

CARLY-1CARLY-3+CARLY-4+CARLY-6+CARLYI am a huge believer that bright personalities are attracted to bright color schemes, which is definitely useful when deciding what to wear this summer season. I have noticed an obvious emerging style of pairing secondary colors together in outfits as well as prints. Prada’s summer line showcases this exact trend by highlighting the color orange in numerous outfits while keeping colors like purple and green strung minimally throughout.

If secondary colors are not much of an adventurous leap for you, perhaps you need to look towards On57NewYork for some iridescent inspiration. I love this collection since it combines the various bold colors, classic silhouettes and simple styles of the summer.  It blends everything into one easy stylish and colorful fashionista trend. Perfect summer colors this season seem to be cooler and warmer hues, which are somewhat reminiscent of nature. Many clothing lines have adopted a more ethereal look this summer, using understated brights and pale pastels to achieve that dreamlike hazy aura.

I personally gravitate towards the brighter tones of turquoise blues and yellows, most likely because they remind me of water and evoke a feeling of tranquility. At the end of the day, regardless of which colors seem to be in style or trending in the fashion world, you need to feel comfortable and fearless in whichever shade you decide to sport. If your heart is telling you one color but Vogue is pushing for the opposite, choose what looks best on you. The greatest accessory this summer besides your colorful exploration will be the confidence and attitude that comes along with it!

This year Oscars – Academy Awards is very special to me. There were 5 film nominations for my native country Poland. I was co closely crossing my fingers for Ida to win and was so ecstatic to see Director Pawel Pawlikowski on the stage receiving the honors of golden Oscar statue from the hands of Nicole Kidman. This is a historic moment for Poland honoring for the first time Polish cinematography.  Pawel Pawlikowski with his eloquent speech and sense of humor had the audience in his pocket within minutes. Hollywood stars were laughing and applauding him. Even signs of wrapping up his speech with disturbing music didn’t intimidate to rush him off the stage. I was so proud for my native country man to be so honored by the Academy.

Each year there is a big focus on what stars are wearing on the red carpet.  If you happened to tune in this past weekend for the 87th Academy Awards then you are well aware that the fashion was at an all time high. Here are a few of my favorite looks:

Julianne Moore won best actress for her film, “Still Alice.” And according to many, she may have won best dressed too. Who was the designer, you ask? It was the infamous Karl Lagerfeld. After approving his very first sketch, Moore entrusted Lagerfeld for her big night. 987 hours and 80,000 hand-painted sequins later, Lagerfeld proved with the one-of-a-kind gown that he always pulls through. And to top it all off, Moore’s win earned her an extra five years of life! Yes, you heard that right. According to her winning speech, if you win an Oscar you gain five years of life. Wouldn’t that be nice!

One of my personal favorite dresses of the night was the black and silver metallic Armani Privé gown worn by the amazing Naomi Watts. Watts starred in the film that won best picture, “Birdman,” and she was clearly ready for the win. I’m not always won for too much glitz but this long, chic look with the sequined band and dark lip color was nothing short of glamorous. That’s two wins for Watts! Check out her look here:

Another honorable mention, Lupita Nyong’o and her Calvin Klein pearls. Reportedly her dress had over 6,000 pearls. It was stunning to say the least but if you’ve ever worn pearls, a necklace perhaps, you must be wondering what we all are: how heavy was that dress? According to an interview on the red carpet, the gown was surprisingly comfortable, even to sit in.  Let’s hope so, because I can only assume that gown cost her quite the pretty penny. Comfort or not, Nyong’o was easily one of the most talked about looks of the night. You must see it here:
