wedding2

With Marina’s Wedding rapidly approaching, we’ve been stressing about looking perfect for the stylehaüs founder’s big day. You have to somehow pull off a chic, comfortable, and family friendly ensemble without sacrificing youthful charm and on trend details.  Here are our tips of what to wear and what not to wear when attending an ultra stylish wedding. 

1. Something Blue

Isshō dress $395, Jared Jamin Necklace

Do: 

It’s always fun to play off of the bridal superstitions of what you must wear on you’re wedding to have a decent marriage. Clean cuts and simple details is the way to go when picking out a wedding ensemble and this Isshō dress from Stylehaüs is a perfect option.

Screen Shot 2014-08-23 at 6.11.17 PMDon’t:

go crazy on the blue. This is not a blast from the past dress. Ruffles, glitter and strange hues of blue are a big no. You want to gracefully blend into the fashionable crowd. Not stick out and have everyone, including me, give the “what were you thinking” look.

2. Spring Fling

Do:

Outdoor wedding can get hot, sweaty, and bugs will be flying everywhere. Not my style, but, if you are the chosen one to attend such a wedding, here’s what i would choose to wear. The cut outs in this stylish dress will give you the chance to stay cool but it’s also covering up enough that you’re not going to be stealing the eyes of all the creepy single men.

3. New York Wedding

Do:

Put fashion on the most important list. Dresses that mimic art deco styles from 1920’s New York are usually chic and spectacular..

take the 20’s appreciation literally. It’s not Halloween just yet.

Boring work wear is the BANE of many a pretty young thing’s existance. Who doesn’t long to love the attire they’re wearing for 8 (or more) longgg hours? Say HELL NO to boring suits and ill-fitting blazers and DAMN STRAIGHT to flattering work wear that stays true to your personal style without sacrificing the respect of your coworkers. Mix leather leggings with a bright knit peplum tank top and subtle stilettos and you’ll be employee of the month in no time at all.

It’s sweltering outside and you’re dying to put aside fashion for just a day in pursuit of blissful, breezy comfort. STOP. You’re too good for tacky flip flops, ragged denim, or an unremarkable tank top. This look seems simple, and it is: just a beautiful blue tank top made on trend by a halter high neckline, high end denim shorts that make your butt look WHOA, and crazy cool kicks boys will envy and girls with lust. Simplicity doesn’t have to be basic, and comfort CAN be combined with cutting edge trends.

Tank Top: Alpine Stars, Shorts: Genetic Denim, Shoes: Supra, Handbag: Safi Miran

6. Cali Cocktail Hour

Cocktail parties are awesome, but many modern girls feel constrained by a classic cocktail dress. And that’s ok! This isn’t your mama’s cocktail hour, and you can dress up without losing that coveted cool factor. Be that IT GIRL by mixing a colorful and textured peplum skirt with an edgy leather crop top to look lady like and laid back.

Weekly Pull: Itty Bitty Bottoms

Is any sensation more deliciously simple than a cool summer breeze whipping against your long(enough), tan(ish), legs? Rocking the free leg walk is Summertime’s sweetest pleasure and the one thought that keeps us going during those frigid winter evenings spent slathered in bulky layers.

THROWBACK THURSDAY: LAUREN HUTTON’S WHITE BLOUSE

lauren-hutton-70s

There is literally nothing more classic than a white blouse.  A crisp white button down, a drape-y white silk top, a plain white tee- they go with anything and everything, and look great on anyone of any age.  No one has pushed the power of the white blouse more than ‘70s supermodel Lauren Hutton.

Known for her All-American charm and classic, preppy style, Lauren Hutton made a name for herself in the 70s and hasn’t stopped making headlines since.  She’s one of the world’s most revered style icons, and could give us all a lesson in “less is more.”  Her outfits typically included a white blouse, typically worn in a super-simple way: with a denim skirt, a blazer, or blue jeans.  Classic & chic!

 

lauren-hutton-style

Available at stylehaus!

Our newest white blouse reminds us of Lauren Hutton SO much!  The draped, v-neck fit is all Lauren, giving off a sexy-but-secretarial vibe.  The ¾ length sleeves, perfectly cuffed, absolutely make the shirt.  We’d wear this with everything:  a leather skirt, printed pants, cutoffs, you name it.

If you can’t get over the Lauren Hutton look, either, you can grab this blouse for $174 at stylehaus- just call 323-655-5900 to order!

 

TREND REPORT: SKORTS

Skorts hold a special place in our hearts here at stylehaus.  While we are totally over the now-ubiquitous Zara miniskort (you know the one…the piece that every blogger and her mom wore last season), skorts in and of themselves aren’t off-limits.  We actually LOVE the versastility of the hybrid piece: the femininity of a skirt with a comfort that only comes from knowing we won’t be flashing our undies if a breeze comes along.

 

fashion-trends-spring-2014

In fact, a skort is one must-have piece for the Spring season.  If you want in on the look, stylehaus has got you covered!  Stylist Janelle put together two street-style worthy looks with the “It” piece of the moment, all pieces courtesy of stylehaus.

Our yellow and black marble printed shorts have two free-flowing front panels, creating the illusion of a skirt.  The long length is so on-trend right now; remember our post on the popularity of Bermudas?  Janelle matched these edgy shorts with a distressed-looking sweater in black.  The result is an effortlessly cool outfit that Alexander Wang would be proud of.

Looking for something a little less dramatic?  Our neoprene skort with gold zipper detailing might be the skort for you!  We love the asymmetrical hemline, and the light color goes with absolutely everything.  Janelle opted for a blue suede tee shirt, making this look perfect for a Spring night out on the town.

All items (except for Janelle’s gorgeous boots) are available at stylehaus!  Call 323-655-5900 for pricing and sizing details.

 

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!
