Express Fashion Star's Big Finale


The nail-biting season finale of Fashion Star went down on Friday when Cassandra, Daniel and Hunter all presented their final capsule collections. After taking into account all the hard work, sweat and tears that went into this season, the buyers agreed that Hunter was the big winner. She totally got the modern, cool vibe of the Express brand and we just couldn’t resist her designs for our women’s collection. Hunter, congrats—we love you!

According to Louise: Night on the Town

Time to paint the town red and get your dancing shoes on! This week’s Fashion Star episode is all about partying in style, and what I love most about Erika’s buys is how diverse they were. Whether you’re into a sexy mini skirt and an urban biker jacket combo (check out Sylvia’s look) or a sophisticated, chic vibe inspired by Studio 54 (Jesse Ray and Garrett’s palazzo pants) – there is a totally different option for everyone.

Spring’s nightlife looks are all about being bold, so leave the black and grey at home and think stand-out prints and vivid colors. My top tip for styling those statement pieces: pair them with a warm neutral like Sylvia’s taupe, or with a soft sapphire like Jesse Ray and Garrett’s silk look. This looks more elegant and refined than mixing brights with black and white. Finally, try out a midi heel with your night-out look this season. Until now, platforms and stilettos have been sky-high, but 2013 is the year of the comfy heel – two or three inches is all you need. See? Size doesn’t always matter.
