#Oscars2016 was a night unlike any of the 87 Academy Awards ceremonies before it! In addition to the incredible nominated talent, important spotlighted issues, and outstanding performances, the fashion on the red carpet this year (for those on trend patrol!) was nothing short of newsworthy. If you looked toward LA from Santa Barbara, you could almost see the cameras flashing. It was Hollywood’s biggest night and the stars’ stylists showed-up to show-off. With all of Paseo Nuevo’s shops and national retailers rolling out their spring collections (with sales now popping up for last season!), there’s a few spring trends from Sunday that we already have our eye on. Check out this powerful girl crew in a few of our favorite looks from the weekend! Then #ShopPaseNuevo and #GetTheLook!
POP OF CITRUS This citrus is so spring! It’s a tone that says fresh, fiery, and fun all in one. These flirty fringy heels from Nine West and new Puebla handbag from Aldo both have us orange with envy.
Olivia Munn in Stella McCartney
Nine West Hustle Open Toe Suede Sandals in red/orange. $119.00
ALDO New! Puebla Handbag in turquoise and orange. $12.00
NECK HIGH IN JEWELS The plunge neckline was major showstopper all over Oscars night! (Victoria’s Secret knows the secret to mastering this trend with no slip ups). In addition to nailing the neckline, Olivia’s jeweled clutch and necklace were equally breathtaking! Have you embraced the reborn choker trend? Express has a necklace on sale now that hits the mark while keeping it daywear ready.
Olivia Wilde in Valetino Haute Couture, Neil Lane jewelry, and Roger Vivier bag

ALDO Trawick Clutch in light pink. $50.00
FULL-SLEEVED CUT OUTS The cutouts continue, spotlighting new hot spots every week. We love this angular waist cut-out on Rooney. Sleeves keep these cut-out dresses cool and ladylike – plus, the style practicality of going from afternoon wine in the Funk Zone to late night dinner on State Street just can’t be beat with this one. Our ANGL look is actually two pieces, ready to be mixed-and-matched with your other go-to crops, and this cutout clutch is a Givenchy gown look alike!
