You can tell a lot about a woman by the way she keeps up with the Kardashians…and the trendiest looks.  For the trend shy or just plain clueless, I asked local stylist Stephanie Kille to break down the must-haves of the moment and where to score them right in our own backyard. With frequent photo shoots to style and her own online boutique, Stephanie has the scoop on the here and now.

Stripes. The nautical look is one you may already have hiding in your closet. The new look for this year is stripes with color. These can be fun bright stripes like the orange, fuchsia and black dress that was shown on the Prada runway or something subtle, like heather grey with white stripes. This is an easy look that can be paired with jeans or a wide leg white dress trouser.  Find this look at Banana Republic for as little as $33.

Feathers. There are many different ways that you can wear this look. If you really want to go all out, you might buy one a beautiful feather gown, dress or skirt by Alexander McQueen or Zac Posen. Going for less drama? You might like to try feather extensions in your hair, or feather earrings that give you the option when to wear them. These look hip with capri jeans, a white tank top and chunky wood sandals. You can get your feather extensions ($40) at Hair Colour for the World, and those eye-catching feather earrings can be yours at Urban Outfitters.

Lace. Now when we think of lace, some of us think of Kate Middleton’s out of this world stunner of a wedding dress. Fit for a queen, Kate’s dress had two different styles of lace, beautiful French Chantilly and English Cluny. Fortunately for us commoners, there are many different varieties of lace that look fashionable at every price point. The lace dress is one that is especially hot right now, but never really goes out of style. Though a little girly, it can still be dead sexy, too. Lace looks lovely with strappy heels and your favorite clutch, but keep the accessories simple.  Madonna’s “Like a Virgin” wedding garb isn’t quite the look you’re going for. You can find a very nice selection at Nordstrom.
