You Go Gingham

Fall 2014 may be pushing plaid, but Spring 2015 will shout “tiny check please”! That’s right, gingham is not just for picnics, plucky orphan girls, or cheesy Italian restaurants.

The gingham of Spring has a sexy, swingy vibe, sans the faintest trace of that Little House on The Prairie meets Pollyanna pattern you were forced to read in Junior High.

Major designers such as Altuzarra and Diane Von Furstenberg exuded swinging 70’s with the cheeky geometric print splayed over dreamy dresses and posh twin sets.

Designers at Altuzarra told reporters that they were inspired by cult classics like Rosemary’s Baby to blend the sweetness of gingham with ultra sexy, half unbuttoned ensembles.

Here are 5 chic pieces to take gingham from the runway to the closet.

Sweatshirts: An On and Off Duty Trend

The sweatshirt…an all American staple that has become a worldwide fashion statement in the most comfortable way possible. With a collared button down, under a leather jacket, or strictly on its own, we can all agree that a crew neck sweatshirt is a piece we all need in our wardrobe for those days of not knowing what to wear. The look says “I want to be comfortable yet put together and fashion forward”.

From Balenciaga and Givenchy to Alexander Wang and 3.1 Phillip Lim, the runway was swarming with sweatshirts that everyone had to have. The Givenchy Bambi sweatshirt is a celebrity fashion yes and it’s versatility has been endless, paired with a long sheer dress on the red carpet even. If Bambi can do it, then so can this Clover Canyon “Smokin’ Granny” sweatshirt-like sweater.

With the in-between weather of spring, mixing winter and summer pieces creates new looks like this Avelon Hatchet Mesh Tank under the “Smokin’ Granny”. This outfit is great for running errands and lunch with friends but switches to night by removing the sweater and adding heels. Having a few go-to sweatshirts makes layering easy and effortlessly chic.

IT FACTOR FRIDAY: BIRDS

We don’t know how it happens, but every season a handful of designers happen to magically think up the same ideas.  Realistically, we know that each design team’s “trend forecaster” analyzes what will be popular for the coming seasons, and helps designers push out those pieces on the runway- but we’re still amazed by it!  For Fall 2014, a bunch of trends emerged- neon accents, fur sleeves, faux croptops, gloves- but one of our favorites was bird embroidery, seen everywhere from Cavalli to Valentino.  The look is a little retro and a lot romantic, and we want in on it ASAP.

Giles Fall 2014

Alberta Ferretti’s bird embroidery accented a moody-toned wool dress while flying over a skirted scene of greenery.  The look at Giles was a pop-art take on the same concept, with birds of neon orange and teal blue popping against solid backgrounds.

Just Cavalli Fall 2014

Valentino Fall 2014

Just Cavalli made the trend more majestic with a jacket that featured two phoenixes as jacket lapels, while Valentino’s take had all the glamour and romance of Old Hollywood.  Can’t you just see that flocked frock on the red carpet?

Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2014

Dolce & Gabbana’s creation not only featured birds, but cartoon flowers, branches, and bugs as well!

 

buy-trends-fall-2014

No need to wait for Fall 2014 to get in on this It Factor trend- the look is accessible right now!  Pixie Market is the place to go for affordable, trendy pieces:  their orange skirt is totally Giles (and only $34), while their crop top and black dress are a tad more wearable.   French Connection’s maxi dress recalls the romance of the runway for only $80, and Equipment’s embellished blouse ensures you’ll sparkle in the look.

Which one will you get?  We’re eyeing up the orange skirt, for sure.

 

THE LOOK FOR LESS: CELINE, 3.1 PHILLIP LIM, AND PRADA

While walking through Zara, we were stopped in our tracks by some oddly familiar designs.  Tops, skirts, and dresses reminiscent of the Spring runways were absolutely everywhere- not that we’re complaining.  We’ll never say no to a, ahem, derivative work of a runway piece at an affordable price!  No knock-offs here, though: while Zara’s designs are thisclose to looking like the real thing, they stop short of being blatant rip-offs.

We have a feeling we’ll get tons of, “Is that Celine?” questions.  If asked, we’ll just smile and say, “It’s Zara! Under $100!” with a smile.  Bragging about a great deal is the new black, you know.

 

zara-celine-knock-off

If you’re into Celine’s abstract art vibes, look no further than the racks of Zara.  This primary-color painted tee is your best bet; wear it with a black-and-white skirt that recalls Celine’s Spring 2014 opening look for an inspired outfit!

 

zara-phillip-lim-knock-off

More of a 3.1 Phillip Lim girl?  Zara’s got you covered.  The designers ode to geodes is available for under $60!  Lim paired his version with a yellow leather skirt, but we’re thinking of distressed denim instead.

 

zara-prada-knock-off

Prada’s crazy Spring runway show is hard to emulate- Miucca Prada’s pieces were so over-the-top that it’d be risky to recreate.  Zara found a way, though, with some of the simpler dresses that walked the catwalk.  Prada’s sporty shift dresses are some of the most inspiring pieces of the season, and Zara’s offering a pared-down version for about $70.  Add a giant statement necklace to replace Prada’s runway bling, and you’re good to go!

 

IT FACTOR FRIDAY: BUTTERFLIES

butterfly-print-trend

Valentino Spring 2014 Couture

If the designers at Valentino have anything to do with it, butterflies will be a huge trend for Spring and Fall.  Valentino’s runways were positively fluttering with butterfly wings for Spring 2014 Couture and Fall 2014!  However they involved the winged creatures- prints, 3D appliqués, or embroidered patches- the design duo behind Valentino made sure that there was no mistaking what would be the next big trend.  Here at stylehaus, our hears are aflutter for this look!

Valentino Fall 2014

While, of course, Valentino’s runway creations are a little too precious for real life, there is a way to incorporate the pretty little things into an outfit without coming off princess-y.  Our butterfly printed tank is just the thing!  In a classic palate of black and white, butterflies actually look pretty badass.

We love this tank worn with our white leather jacket, which is actually lined with butterfly-printed fabric!  If you want to try the trend, either of these pieces will satisfy your craving. Get them at stylehaus- 323-655-5900 to order.

Are you into this look?  How will you wear it?

 

GET THE LOOK: STREET STYLE FASHION WEEK 2014

We have a little bit of an obsession with scouring street style sites, and during Fashion Month we absolutely overdosed on the good stuff.  Seeing so many images in a short time frame is (of course) inspiring, but also a little confusing: there’s a crazy amount of outfit ideas bouncing around in our heads and it’s hard to decide which inspirations to pull from sometimes!  To help sort out our favorite street style snaps, we’ve dedicated ourselves to pinpointing our favorite pics and nailing the look.  Luckily, with stylehaus’ merch at our disposal, it’s pretty easy!  Exhibit A: Joanna Hillman in a black, blue, and fringed look.

 

joanna-hillman-street-style

Hillman was the epitome of effortless chic at Paris Fashion Week in a simple mix of black and blue.  Here, it’s the little details that make all the difference: the oversized fit of the blazer, the minimal gold chokers, the fringed purse.  Love!

 

joanna-hillman-street-style-outfit

A look like this is easy to emulate with a few key pieces, like a great pair of black pants and a boyfriend blazer.   We immediately thought of our fave stretch skinny jeans and threw them on with a high-necked black blouse.  On top, we layered our “Ex-Boyfriend” blazer in blue- 50% off!

The finishing touches were our newest gold necklace- we LOVE the minimal shapes- and our trusty fringed bucket bag.  If you want to get this look too, all pieces are available at stylehaus.

 

GET THE LOOK: LACY SUNDAY

coachella-fashion-2014

Is there anything better than a lace dress?  Lace is so versatile.  It can be classic (a la Audrey Hepburn), rocker-chic (like Stevie Nicks), bohemian, sexy…the list goes on.  Our favorite lace piece at the moment is our floor-sweeping sheer lace gown.  Completely see-through, the dress features a high neckline and long sleeves for the perfect mix of sexy and sweet.

 

coachella-outfit-ideas-2014

The best thing about this dress?  You can layer whatever you want underneath!  Stylist Jessica went with a plain black slip, but there are countless ways to mix it up.  For a racy look, layer a nude slip underneath.  Rocker?  Try a black slip with a leather jacket on top.  Boho girls might want to try a tank and cutoffs, and those who want to try out the high-fashion look should reach for black high-waisted booty shorts and a corset-like bra.

 

coachella-fashion-2014

We’re picturing this piece at Coachella, layered over a little bikini top and shorts!  Add a cross-body bag over top, and the look is festival ready.

How would you wear this piece?  If you want to grab it for yourself, it’s $510 at stylehaus (323-655-5900 to order).

 

GET THE LOOK: THE 3 BEST LOOKS OF PARIS FASHION WEEK

Paris Fashion Week is well underway, and we’re excited about the collections we’ve seen so far.  Most runway shows have nailed that effortlessly sexy vibe that the French are known for, whether it’s through tailored separates, oversized knits, or skin-tight leather.  Some of our favorite looks have more to do with proportions than pieces, which actually makes them super-easy to recreate right now!  Here are our top 3 looks from Paris Fashion Week and how to get them RIGHT NOW:

 

1.  Dior

 

paris-fashion-week-fall-2014

Dior’s show, which felt more Spring than Fall, was full of gorgeous colors, layered outerwear, and new proportions.  Our favorite look consisted of a long yellow vest worn over a plain white dress- so easy, yet totally fresh & exciting.  To get the look now, we’d wear this long white vest from Haute Hippie with a plain yellow tank dress from American Apparel.  Throw on some ankle-strap heels, like these from Forever 21, and you’re done!  Tres Dior.

 

2.  Jay Ahr

 

paris-fashion-week-fall-2014

This was the first time we’ve paid attention to designer Jay Ahr, and we’ve got to say that we loved his show!  The look that really struck us was this black and white number- the striped skirt, white fur jacket, and chic little booties are such a fierce combo.  Luckily, we were able to find some amazing pieces to recreate this vibe.  A Rachel Zoe striped skirt pairs perfectly with an affordable faux-fur jacket, and any black ankle booties will do.  See?  Easy!

 

3.  Isabel Marant

 

paris-fashion-week-fall-2014

Isabel Marant has made her name synonymous with “quintessential French style”, and her latest collection stayed true to that maxim.  The designer pairs overtly-sexy pieces with covered-up classics for a mix that’s understated and badass, and this look from Fall 2014 is our favorite.  Zara’s asymmetrically cut black leather skirt will help you nail the Paris vibe, and their oversized black sweater is a no-brainer.  We loved Isabel’s mesh “scarf” necklace, but this Allen Schwartz necklace is almost as cool.  Add some studded Steve Madden boots, and you’ve got a mix like Marant!
