You may not have occasion to walk a red carpet any time soon, but you also have a need to feel your red carpet best! Whether you are planning to attend a formal event for work or you just want to look like a glam goddess for your next anniversary celebration, some inspiration from the red carpet can help you to look your best.

Here are a few of the hottest red carpet looks this season to help inspire you:

Jewel Tones
From the Met Gala to the Emmys, stars have been dazzling in jewel tones like sapphire, emerald and canary. While you may not be wearing a ball gown to the office, this is a look you can definitely incorporate into your every day style. If a full outfit in bold colors is too much, try pairing a sapphire skirt with a white blouse or a canary top with a charcoal skirt or pant. The pop of color will enliven your day.

Side-Swept Hair
Side-swept hair creates an interesting twist on an everyday look while adding a bit of glamour. The great thing about this trend is you can wear it with almost any hair style or type. Create a deep side bang for an updo, or pull your hair to rest on one shoulder for a casual, every day look. The look is as flexible as your style.

All Black
Stars like Anne Hathaway, Beyonce, and Jennifer Lawrence have been wowing in all-black ensembles on the red carpet for the recent awards circuit. The all-black look creates a bold, yet sophisticated statement that can work in just about any scenario. Try it at the office, or wow for your next date night.

Yes! The dresses are head to toe red from neck to shoe, but red lips are THE hue for the pout. Stars from Taylor Swift to Angelina are sporting this lush, rich red look – not just bright red, but deep tones of red. This trend is spreading and gaining steam as award shows continue this year – especially for fall, the red lip is the look of the moment, straight from the runways of Milan. This fad is beginning to sneak into daytime looks, pairing well with dark jeans, striped boat neck shirts and midi heels.

From Trashy to Classy
We are seeing less skin and more peek-a-boo styles on the red carpet this season. The days of short dresses are being replaced with elegant, long and flowy fashions that Old Hollywood would be proud of! Creams and lace, fitted long sleeved numbers and classic high neck, low back cuts are back. Take notes Miley! Diamonds and pearls are dripping from celebs once again as they grace the carpet as well as vintage brooches and pins, which a making a huge resurgence.
