Look to the Stars!

Who better to look to for inspiration then the cast one of the most talked about shows on TV?  Dancing with the Stars is a live show that features well known celebrities who are paired with professional dancers. As the weeks go by dances get more complicated, the outfits more flashy and sadly couples are eliminated. Fortunately we can use the show to our advantage. By pulling key components from their looks we can find you the perfect dress for your night out!

Some of the biggest trends that we are seeing for this fall are featured on the show. Fringe is definitely back in as well as vibrant colors. Everyone knows that a little sparkle and shine goes a long way and sequins are always a must have. Another trend that comes and goes is animal print and we are seeing a lot of it this year. Sometimes it’s a full printed dress, but it can even be as eye-catching as a belt.

Both Dancing with the Stars competitors Bristol Palin and Jennifer Gray have used fringe to follow their quick movements on the dance floor. Want everyone to turn and look at you while you’re bustin’ a move? Then you need a dress that can move with you!

There are tons of options to pick from. You can go for the full on fringe like Jovani style 154375 or something a little more subtle like blush prom style C007 that offers that little bit of movement at the hemline. Sherri Hill Style 2336 is similar to the fringe but has a full ruffle skirt.

When looking for the perfect dress don’t be shy. Go for the wow factor! Look for a dress that is going to have everybody talking! Try a neckline with chunky gems or covered in sequins. You will draw the attention to your face and you won’t need a necklace! Audrina pulls this look off perfectly. She’s got a dramatic neckline that pops!

Jovani style 71903 is simple with a splash of sparkle. The sweetheart neckline and one should strap are hot this season. And what better way to wear it then with a bright color and dash of sequins. The loose skirt ensures you will turn heads with every move. Sherri Hill always gets it right! And style 2272 is no exception. Offered in an array of colors this neckline is impressive. Tons of sequins and stones arranged in an adorable key hole that continues over your shoulder and ends at your back! You don’t even have to think twice about this one.  Another bold choice is Blush Prom style 9129. Blush got it just right with this neckline. Chunky stones are strewn across the bust and carried over into a key hole halter. Simple but sassy!


There’s no doubt that Dancing with the Stars wouldn’t add sequins to their costumes! Nothing shimmers like sequins can. Always shining from any angle sequins catch the light and make you glow at all times!  Brandy and Florence Henderson are total opposite except for their fabulous choice in fashion! So why not add a little sparkle to your night with some of these great choices inspired by the stars?
