what's trending with tara: Off-The-Shoulder Tops And Dresses

by Tara Blumenthal

Summer is approaching and there is no denying that when it comes to the fashion of the season, it is all about showing some skin to win. Whether it be a skirt with a high slit, a deep plunging neckline or a see-through overlay, displaying some flesh will instantly spring you into the now. This is a tricky notion to execute with grace, as you must create a delicate balance between skin and fabric. My advice is to choose only one area to flaunt and keep the rest of you under wraps. This is why I am all over the off-the-shoulder designs that are in stores now. There is nothing sexier than baring your décolletage and the tops of your shoulders with an otherwise conservative silhouette, while maintaining that ladylike poise.

April 29th was #DenimDay, a campaign run for the past 16 years in Los Angeles and New York to encourage people to wear denim with a purpose: to support survivors of sexual assault and raise awareness (visit Denim Day for more info). Since this spring has been all about denim, I thought no better time than now to hit one of my favorite ways to wear denim: A great denim dress or a-line skirt.

what's trending with tara: winter white out

by Tara Blumenthal

Are you as bored as I am looking through your closet during this seemingly never-ending winter? I’ve been looking for ways to hit the streets feeling warm but still rocking a fresh ensemble. In an attempt to brighten up these cold, dark days, I decided to bypass my go-to black leather leggings and distressed denim and instead pull out my white jeans. I have to admit, I’ve never been much of a rule follower. I hope at this point we all know to just ignore the old adage about wearing white after Labor Day — that taboo is over!
