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.

We love hosting events, especially when it is a trunk show for one of our designers! We had an incredible time last week at our Aplinestars by Denise Focil and ASTARS spring trunk show! Shopping, socializing, sipping on champagne and snacking on delicious treats made for a memorable night at The Grove. Trunk shows are always an ideal time for us to catch up with everyone and to do what we love to do best— styling! Our CEO Marina Monroe and Kym Johnson played dressed up in one of our new high-waisted pants and crop tops (a perfect outfit for spring) while other party goers previewed our new merchandise by some of our favorite designers! Celebrities such as Kym Johnson of Dancing with the Stars, Olesya Rulin, Ingo Rademacher, Fallon Goodson and Daphne Blunt attended our event!
