Plus-Size Blogger Marie Denee on Trying Spring's Trickiest Trends: 'Don't Knock it Until You Rock it'

Apr/10/2014 at 03:19 PM ET

Spring is officially here, coats are parked in the closet and hemlines are rising. And we’re beyond excited about the spring trends heading our way: brights, florals, prints and so many good shoes. Many of the trends are tricky to try, but just-relaunched plus size line Eloquii teamed up with Curvy Fashionista blogger Marie Denee to show just how wearable — and fun! — these styles can be.

Like our new blogger Allison Teng, Denee’s approach to fashion is fearless. “I stare at it,” Denee tells PEOPLE when asked how she approaches a trend that she finds challenging. “I am no longer afraid and have learned to ‘Don’t Knock It Until You Rock It.’ You will never know how it will really look and feel until you give it a whirl. Then you can say, ‘You know what, it wasn’t for me.’ Until then, give it a shot!”

Reese Witherspoon's Golden Globes Look Came to Her Stylist In a Dream - and More Amazing Scoop on Her Style!

We like Reese Witherspoon‘s sweet style, but we love when she goes sexy, and she did just that at the Golden Globes Sunday night in custom Calvin Klein Collection and $3.7 million worth of Harry Winston jewelry. Her stylists gave PEOPLE the rundown from start to finish.

THE DRESS. Stylist Leslie Fremar came up with the color for Witherspoon’s gown in a dream, then tasked Calvin Klein with making it happen — and it certainly didn’t come together overnight. The collaboration began about a month ago and ended with one final fitting Sunday morning, culminating in a result Fremar was thrilled with. “I love the color. I love the fit. I felt like it was very modern. It was moving forward for her in terms of fashion,” Fremar tells PEOPLE. “I feel like it all came together like I wanted it to.”

Witherspoon herself contributed some design elements, like the striking racerback, and loved the dress enough to share a sketch on Instagram (below). “You could see it in her face, that she just felt really good in it,” Fremar says. “It was a collaboration and it really came together. Everyone was happy.”

One more fun element Fremar shared: The shoes were custom Christian Louboutins dyed perfectly to match. “I had them dyed the color of her dress, because I didn’t want any break in color,” Fremar says. “I sent them [a swatch] and they made the shoes to match.” Now that’s service.

Confessions of a Celeb Stylist: Leslie Fremar Shares Exactly How to Make Your Wardrobe Summer-Perfect (Stress Free!)

Jun/26/2013 at 09:00 AM ET

Summer Shopping All Courtesy

Leslie Fremar is Hollywood’s top stylist (literally — The Hollywood Reporter just said so!) with clients from Julianne Moore to Reese Witherspoon. And now she’s bringing her considerable talents to our site to share behind-the-scenes scoop, styling tips and much more. This week, she shares how to change over your wardrobe from winter to summer like a celeb — without spending a fortune or stressing out. Read on, and shop her top picks for the season below.

After what felt like the longest winter of all time, I still cannot believe summer is here. Even though I am so ready for the heat, I am still holding on to my winter clothes and just can’t seem to let go.

I don’t know about the rest of the country, but in N.Y.C., it feels like it goes straight from winter to summer. Spring and fall have disappeared overnight and it confuses my body — and my closet. So how do we make this transition from winter heavy clothes, coats and boots to summer dresses, sandals and bathing suits? I am going to try and break it down to help those that feel just as caught off-guard as I do.

First, move all of your heavy coats, sweaters and boots to the back of your closet. If you are lucky enough to have storage room, get them out altogether! Out of sight, out of mind. So even if it is your favorite shoe or boot, remove it and you will be happy to see it again in September. This is a great way to appreciate your clothes so when you “find” it again you will feel like you just went shopping. We all love that feeling.

Keep all the things that work year round. For example, your t-shirts, jeans, leggings, cardigan and accessories. Maybe your favorite undershirt will become your key piece, and that black cardigan can act as a light jacket on a cool summer night.

Tabatha's Takeover: Katie Holmes's Dress Is a Bit Too 'Craft Project' For Me

We all know Tabatha Coffey, Bravo’s sharp-tongued Aussie style pro, from her stint on Shear Genius and her latest hit, Tabatha Takes Over. And now, she’s bringing her talents online, joining us at PEOPLE StyleWatch once weekly to dish on some of the best – and worst – celebrity looks of the week. Keep in mind the opinions below belong solely to the stylist … though she’s probably saying what lots of you are thinking, anyway!

Today, she takes on Katie Holmes, who was going for “breezy and effortless” at a summer bash — though Tabatha doesn’t think she achieved it.

Hey Katie, the invitation to Coach’s party at High Line said it was a “summer party,” not a “toga party.”

Seriously folks, what the hell is she wearing? It looks like she swiped some white table bunting from a banquet hall and got dressed in a taxi cab. Strike that. Actually, Katie looks like she is wearing her first assignment from the “Sewing for Beginners” class she took at Francine’s Craft World.
