Oscars Fashion Crib Sheet

The Oscars red carpet is something fashionistas look forward to all year – it’s like the Superbowl of the fashion world. Favorite stars can exceed expectations and walk the carpet in the most beautiful gown you have ever seen. It is truly one of the greatest and most watched art shows on earth.

We’ve already made the case that the red carpet during awards season informs fashion trends for the rest of the year, and even Cape Cod will see the impact of the choices and styles seen on the Oscars red carpet in particular right here in our local boutiques.

Here are the trends that stood out in brief:

Color: white/cream and gold combination (and pops of red).
