We find ourselves in the middle of awards season – when Hollywood’s elite hits the red carpet more frequently than any other time of the year. Coming off the heels of the Golden Globes, everyone is talking about the fashion hits, like Julianne Moore in a gorgeous custom Givenchy gown; and misses, like Tayrn Manning in ill-styled Oscar De La Renta (which some could argue looks like a bit like a trash bag – we’re not saying, we’re just saying).

Though you might not have back-to-back special occasions coming up, you can still incorporate some of the tips and trends seen on the red carpet into your everyday style. Here is our list of top 3 trends to take from the awards shows to the streets:

Jewel Tones – There were plenty of breathtaking jewel-toned gowns on the red carpet (think the deep turquoise hue of the Christian Dior gown on Felicity Jones), but how can you translate that into your every day? Think skinny jeans in emerald green, amethyst, or ruby, with a neutral top and accessories. Or switch it up with a sapphire blue scarf to add a shot of color to a variety of outfits.

Metallics – From previously mentioned Julianne Moore to Reese Witherspoon to Anna Farris, metallics were out in full-force (with an event called the Golden Globes what did you expect?) and we loved it. Metallics are great as accent pieces. A glitzy headband or blouse with shimmering elements can take any outfit to the next level.

Tasteful Design Details – Chrissy Teigen looked absolutely stunning in a very intricate pink Zuhair Murad gown. The everyday style takeaway isn’t to drown yourself in lace, but to use textures and patterns to give your outfits an edge. Mixing fabrics and including subtle patterns into your clothing choices create interesting contrast that make your style choices pop.
