Grace Bay Club Welcomes Designer Trina Turk

Trina Turk, the prominent fashion designer behind the Southern California lifestyle label, recently visited Grace Bay Club in Turks and Caicos to celebrate the success of the Trina Turks & Caicos collection. Known for her bold use of color and chic designs, Trina created a print and limited edition capsule collection inspired by and exclusively for the resort.

“I was thrilled when Grace Bay Club contacted me to design an exclusive print for the resort, and the success of the collection is a testament to the terrific synergy between the two brands,” says Trina Turk, CEO, Trina Turk. “Spending time at the resort and getting to know the team strengthened my view that Trina Turk and Grace Bay Club are a perfect pair: both embody effortless and sophisticated style.”

“We absolutely love hosting Trina. The collection has been such a hit, and we are honored to have her call Grace Bay Club home when she travels to Turks and Caicos”, says Nikheel Advani, COO, Grace Bay Resorts. “Not to mention, there is no better place than Turks and Caicos to get some much needed R&R!”

Trina Turks & Caicos marks the first designer collaboration for Grace Bay Club, and the first time Trina has created a limited edition, signature print and capsule collection for a resort.

With prices ranging from $76 - $204, the nine piece capsule collection features mix-and-match bikini separates, including halter and bandeau styles, and a wrap one-piece swimsuit, as well as a kimono-sleeve tunic and ankle-length maxi dress. The print blends vibrant shades of coral and turquoise that complement both the California and Caribbean style sense, and evokes the tropical color ways found on the resort’s famous 13-mile Grace Bay beach. All swimwear styles in the collection also showcase the Trina Turk brand’s iconic block hardware in gold and white. The collection is available at the Boutique at Grace Bay Club, Trina Turk namesake boutiques and online at Trina Turk.

Thinking About Prom Dresses? Try a Unique Silhouette!

Prom season is right around the corner – are you ready? With so many colors, styles, lengths, and more to choose from, picking the perfect dress can seem like a real challenge. However, a great on-trend design for spring that you may have overlooked is the one-shoulder style. A happy medium between straps and strapless, the one-shoulder look gives you the comfort and confidence of a dress with straps with a unique architectural twist. Instead of tugging up your strapless dress all night, or worrying about slim spaghetti straps slipping, you can rock these frocks for hours without worrying about how they’re holding up.

Check out this great style with a few unique prom dresses from David’s Bridal. Pictured below are some great options, perfect for every body type!

This gorgeous ombre design is eye-catching and dramatic; it’s sure to be a scene-stealer! It features beads and glitter to keep you shimmering all night long.

Romantic and wistful, their flower-adorned one-shoulder is perfect for those looking to capture simple, stately beauty.

Orange is an extremely popular color for the season, and coupled with the one-shoulder design you are sure to turn heads and set trends. The illusion waist and cut-out back on this dress add perfect details to make it a one-of-a-kind style.

How to Wear Spring's Hottest Trends Mor​e Than Once

Saturday, March 24, 2012

From the west to east coast — it’s quite apparent that early spring has sprung. With temperatures on the rise, early this year, it’s that time of year again. Time to rid your closet of bulky winter clothing and decorate it with your favorite seasonal red carpet and runway-inspired trends. When shopping for your spring wardrobe, how do you pick versatile items that can last through the season? Fashion Stylist and Designer Claudia Patel and Tamasha Knit Designer Haesu Kwon break down this year’s spring versatile must-have items that can be worn throughout the season in a number of ways.

Bold and Bright Accessories

Press Play Orange Bangle Set $22 at LuLus

Bold colors and accessories are big for spring this year. “It’s time to purchase pieces reflecting colors of the rainbow; neon orange or tangerine are great colors for the coming season,” touts Haesu. This spring it’s all about making a statement—in color. Large floral patterns, futuristic prints and color-blocking are just a few of the many colorful trends you will want to purchase for the spring when it comes to clothing. What about when it comes to your accessories? “A statement belt is a great piece to purchase,” explains Claudia. “Liven up your outfit with a neon belt or a bold bag. Be bold and daring with your accessories. You can easily wear them in the summertime for a fun summer look as well. Same goes for your flats. Experiment with different colors and patterns to spring your basic outfit to a whole new level.”

Spring Cardigans/Shirts

Betsey Johnson Flower Intarsia Cropped Cardigan $248

Dress your closet up with cardigans, pastel colored shirts and feather-weight sweaters in shades of mint and peach. “Though bold colors are in for the spring, you should make some extra closet space for pastels for the season,” suggests Haesu. This is a look you can take with you into early summer. Wear your pastel shirt with a simple pencil skirt. Add some bold or tribal jewelry to make a statement. Versatile cardigans are a must this spring. And if the temperature starts to rise — wear your cardigan as an accessory. Simply wrap your cardigan around your shoulders. “Cardigans are great for layering and can be worn in number of ways, adds Claudia Patel. “Throw on a cardigan over your dress to add a pop of color. Take your look from day-to-night—dress your look down with a cardigan and remove for a night out with friends. Experiment with different patterns and shades. If a cardigan is not your style, try light spring blazers. Same guidelines, different look!”

Spring Dress

With talk of pastel cardigans and bold accessories — you will need the perfect spring dress. Try a basic neutral dress or a bold simple one. What better versatile piece to use as this year’s spring fashion canvas? “A neutral dress is a fashion staple that can be transformed into a number of looks, ranging from classic to fun,” says Claudia Patel. Basic neutral tones are big this spring. “Pair a basic nude dress with a pop of color, bold colored flats or bright jewelry,” adds Haesu. “There is nothing boring about neutral. Add metallic hardware to make a statement without being too bold. Don’t stick to one trend or restrict yourself. Pair a bold dress with metallic accessories. Mix two bold complimentary colors. Mix trends or change them up with your personal style. It’s all about feeling confident and being you.” Though basics are great, floral prints are also a hot trend this spring. “Wear a floral short dress with metallic pumps, says Claudia. “Pick complimentary and contrasting colors to change up your look from week to week. You can wear the same dress and transform your look each time. Throw on a blazer to make your outfit work appropriate. Spice it up with heels and wear it to a dinner with friends.”

Get Your Kicks

With some serious advancements in recent years, trainers aren’t just for the gym anymore. Official makers of the English rugby kit, Nike – for those of you who’ve been scrummaging against the Six Nations for your guy’s attention in recent weeks – has some incredibly stylish designs this season that will not only lend you some serious sport credibility, but have you running ahead of spring’s hottest trend.

Follow in the Footsteps of the King of Street Style

First on the wish list of any sporty fashionista is, of course, Nike footwear, and in particular Nike Air Max 90s. A favorite of the legendary, late Alexander McQueen – British fashion royalty – these trainers are at the very top of their game. When picking out of pair of 90s, you’ll have a rainbow of color combinations to choose from – they have, after all, been designing these iconic kicks for over 20 years – but for spring/summer 2012, the brighter the better. Throw them on with a pair of skinnies and one of spring’s cropped biker jackets for laid-back super-chic.

Channel the Vintage Vibe

If a vintage approach is more your style, invest in some high top trainers for a full-on blast from the past. Taking the fashion world by storm, high-tops are a huge hit this season, with celebrities such as Nikki Reed being spotted sporting rainbow brights. This summer, add an instant air of casual cool to a dressy mini or playsuit by ditching the heels and stepping out in a pair of Nike Blazers. A sporty twist on the classic plimsoll – with oversized laces and a metallic swoosh – Nike’s Flash Mtr trainers are also a standout style. Channel country club chic with a white pair, or style up black Flashes with a tuxedo jacket for a night out.

Shop Attik Review

Shop Attik offers the latest styles in fashion for those who have champagne taste on a beer budget. They stay fashion-forward by offering the latest in clothing and accessory trends. Be sure to check their site often since they update it on a weekly basis.

I'm in love with the Cowl Neck Sweater Dress (Regularly: $42 Sale Price: $25.20) that I received. It's ultra feminine and flattering on the figure, and looks even better with the Silver Hook Belt that I also received. They no longer have that particular belt in stock, but their White Clasp Belt ($9) or Leaf Brooch Trim Stretch Belt ($20) would look just as good!

We haven't really experienced much of a Winter for me to wear this dress out and about, but I will definitely be donning this dress when the weather calls for it. For an an even classier look, I suggest pairing this dress with twinkling earrings, solid leggings, and high boots.

I also love the Twist Knot Maxi Dress ($40.50), Trench Coat with Ruffles and Belt ($61.10), and Black and White Sleeveless Belted Top ($30).

It's time to let yourself unwind, so you leave the ocean's warm waters, wringing out the skirt of your sweet, ladylike suit as you walk. You locate your strappy sandals on the beach, just where you left them, and slip them on to protect your tootsies from the toasty sand before taking off toward a palm-shaded hammock that hangs picturesquely in the distance.
