Oscar Inspired Dress Styles: Pretty Elements to Apply to Your Outfits

With the Oscars arriving very soon on the 26th, this Sunday, it's time to get inspired and excited to see all of the stunning dresses! You'll be seeing sequins, sparkles, tulle, and other lovely materials that make the stars' dresses come alive with personality! Even though you may not have the opportunity to wear an Oscar type dress yourself very often, you can look at at the stylish elements and apply them to your own style.

Nude Colors, Tulle, and Sequins

Last year Halle Berry wore a nude Marchesa gown to the Oscars. As you can see this gown has a mermaid fit with tons of tulle and sequins. It also is a beautiful dress that's stunning against Halle's skin because of the gorgeous beige color.

But going back to tulle, this materials is still very much in style and in fact their are many tulle skirts available! Find a tulle skirt and accessorize it with a Free People top or a top from another favorite brand name. It's easy to create an outfit that's Oscar worthy without spending a ton of money.

Minty Green

Mint green is a lovely color that's very much in style right now. Even before this color became a hot commodity, it was seen on the lovely Jennifer Lopez at the Oscars in 2003 (back when their was a Bennifer.) Little did Jennifer know that she was ahead of her time because the one shoulder gown and minty green color is very much in today in 2012.

In fact, you can find gorgeous mint green accessories (such as a clutch or handbag,) that complements a color block outfit or if you're into pastels, mint green also will look lovely with a beautiful frock that comes in pastel shades. Use your imagination and you can make a gorgeous staple come alive. If Jennifer could make a dress look fabulous in 2003, you can make a minty green outfit look fab in 2012.

Hair Extensions

Of course the Oscars wouldn't be the Oscars without some celebs wearing hair extensions. You've seen it already on Reese Witherspoon last year during the Oscars. Even though we're not 100% sure that she's wearing a clip on hair ponytail, we're pretty sure just by how fabulous her hair looks.

So yes, hair extensions are a great element to apply to your fun Oscar inspired ensembles as well. In fact - you might see the stars wearing hair extensions of all different kinds, including custom clip ons and clip on bangs. Since clip ons seamlessly blend into an Oscar worthy look, why not incorporate them into your own style too?

So have fun creating an Oscar inspired look that can translate into your everyday style. Tulle, sequins, hair extensions and more look gorgeous applied to an everyday outfit. Instead of staring at the television on Sunday, during the Oscars, wishing you were in a fabulous dress - create this style as an everyday outfit that you're proud to wear!
