Style Spotting: Nicole Scherzinger

asbydfpants

Last week, Nicole Scherzinger was spotted looking fierce in AsbyDF Sam Stretch Leather Pants. The Pussy Cat Doll, multiplatinum solo artist, and X-Factor judge practically purred in this deliciously decadent pair of ribbed, 100% stretch lambskin pants.

Flexible for comfort and form-fitting for major sex appeal, these beauties rest easy with a mid-low rise. What takes these leather pants to the next level is distinctive detailing: accordion moto paneling over the left pocket and knees and gold zippers over left knee, at front leg bottoms & on back pockets. 

Saunter into stylehaus and try on a pair stat!

Weekly Pull: Amazing Autumn

1. Modern Monarch

Clover Canyon pants, $300; AS by DF top, $148; Jared Jamin Necklace, Price Upon Request

Sidewalks might as well be runways now a days. The heat wave is set to break this weekend, and with it roll in Fall’s wonderfully mild embrace. Prints are major and pants are a must, so strike a post and strut down Santa Monica in this sumptuous Clover Canyon piece. The dark yet rich colors of one of Clover Canyon’s mod-Scottish patterns for F/W are precisely on trend with the Season’s major hues. We paired the pants with an ASbyDF tank that’s on trend in not one, but two ways: zipper details and halter neckline. Dark and light weave together wonderfully, and a glamorous Jared Jamin necklace adds the finishing touch on an ensemble fit for LA’s modern monarch. 

2. Elegant Edge

Clover Canyon Top, $260, & Skirt, $240. 

NYFW may be over, but in LA, the parties are just getting good. No one commands attention like a gorgeous girl in a sophisticated and sleek set. Matching tops and bottoms littered the runways during last weeks shows, so we’re loving the contrast between this bold Clover Canyon print and prim cut of ultra light and incredibly flattering dream fabric neoprene. 

3. Pajama Party Posh

Lauren Stucky top, $273; Clover Canyon pants, $300. 

Don’t we all wish we could roll out of bed in our pajamas? Well you can but you have to do it the right way. These silky, menswear-inspired pants are just tight enough to hug your assets and just loose enough to wear on a flight to Tokyo. The stand out striped pattern gives you the freedom to pair these pants with just about any cut and fabric!  We chose our favorite velvet tank top by Lauren Stucky because no other fabric reminds us more of Fall than luxurious and oh-so-feminine velvet.

Weekly Pull: Anything But Basic Black

Black is by far the boldest neutral, and all black ensembles have long been a staple of fashion elite for a very real reason. No other hue holds such a sophistication cache as effortless ebony, with icons like Coco Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld lauding it’s slimming, timeless, and fantastically flexible virtue.

California may be the most colorful Coast, but LA’s regal residents can be spotted in head to toe black during every Season and occasion. Here are two stylehaüs outfits that put a modern, breezy twist on all black. Playful, flirtatious, and impeccably suited for late Summer heat waves, these looks effortlessly combine timeless sophistication, lightweight luxury, and 2014’s biggest trends.

Tight Knit

Knits so good your Grandma can’t deal

Summer might be in full force, but style slows for no Season.

The Fall/Winter 2014 Collections recently debuted, and fashionistas are already scrambling to integrate key details into their warm weather wardrobe. One particularly wearable textile making appearances on many a runway? Knits.

From the Row, where Olsen twins continued their brave pioneering of old lady chic with luxe (if highly over the top) knitwear, to Alexander Wang’s neon take on mod knit mini dresses to Stella McCartney’s sophisticated head to toe knit suit, knits have never held less kitsch or more chic.

Vogue reports:

The polar vortex may have subconsciously worked to make knits the story of New York Fashion Week, from ribbed leggings and sweater tanks at Marc Jacobs and Edun to all-in-ones at Michael Kors, and, at the Row, a bear suit of sorts: essentially, all the clothes you’ve always wished you could venture out of the house in, but never dared to try. There were dressed-up knits, too, like Calvin Klein Collections’s elegant mohair skirts and tops and the handspun details on Rodarte’s dresses. Layered looks went next-level with sweaters of multiple lengths and varied silhouettes piled on, topped with a very, very, very long scarf—all techniques that the lingering cold temperatures offer plenty of time to incorporate in wardrobes now.

The last result you might expect from layering knit upon knit might be a lithe, lean, and sleek silhouette, but the Fall 2014 shows blew our respective hive minds with piled on knits that accentuated, not disguised, our feminine curves.

Look for long & spacious knits in neutral shades, in particular Fall’s subtly sexy it-hue: soft grey. In order to attain that coveted look of long and lean, it’s imperative to select a form-fitting and light weight knit.

Repeat after me: bulk is bad, bulk is bad, bulk is bad.
