THREE WAYS TO WEAR: BLUE SUEDE

You might remember some of our new blue pieces from last week’s post on the perforation trend.  Bethany tried the blue suede shorts with a matching perforated jacket, and all of us here at stylehaus fell in love with the color.  Those two pieces actually arrived with another blue suede friend, a classic shift top, and the three can be mixed and matched in endless ways!  Here’s how all of our stylists are rocking the look:

Long blue shorts get an edgy update from a perforated biker jacket.  A neutral gray tank lets the cobalt blue pieces shine, and classic pumps are a simple finishing touch.

No need to mix things up too much!  The blue shorts look great paired with a matchy-matchy top, as seen on stylist Jessica.  A big black top-handle purse breaks up the all-over color, and hot pink lipstick pairs perfectly with blue!

Not a matchy-matchy girl?  No problem.  Stylist Janelle rocks the blue jacket with black skinny jeans and a purple and white striped top.  This look seamlessly mixes edgy & preppy, and we love it.

STREET STYLE: SPOTTED AT THE GROVE

We always see street style shots from New York, Paris, Milan, etc—but where are the LA street style photographers??  Googling “LA street style” leaves a lot to be desired, so we decided to snap some of our own street style shots here at the Grove!  We contribute these pics every week to The Grove App & the instagram account @spottedatthegrove- make sure you download/follow for the latest in LA street style!IMG_6942_result

Marina Monday: All American

Ever want to mix red, white, and blue- but find yourself looking a little too much like an American flag?  Marina shares how to rock the mix without going overboard in today’s installment of Marina Monday!

 

I try out a lot of different looks, but almost nothing (besides leather) beats out the classic-cool vibe of red, white, and blue- especially when “blue” is denim.  The colors feel fresh and clean together, and if worn the right way, they don’t have to look over-the-top patriotic!  I first wore this outfit during New York Fashion Week, but I’ve been coming back to it again and again lately.

When I found this vintage American Flag vest, I had to have it.  It feels very 70s-rock-and-roll to me, like Bruce Springsteen would wear it or something.   Putting together an outfit around it was challenging though, since I didn’t want to overload on the Americana vibe.  My method?  Mix in a healthy dose of neutrals!

 

marina-monroe-stylist

I started with a plain black tee, since adding black to a red, white, and blue look instantly toughens up the happy-go-lucky color combo.  After that I added my favorite vintage Levi’s (a must-have in every wardrobe), which I like because they’re a few shades darker than my vest.  That tonal contrast makes all the difference- no Texas Tuxedo here.

Red Giuseppe Zanotti sandals and a red, white, and brown Celine bag added some oomph to the mix, but I still felt like something was missing.  To add a super-trendy element to the look, I decided to tie a plaid top from Boy by Band Of Outsiders around my waist!  I LOVE this 90s comeback trend and want to incorporate it into my looks as much as possible before it gets old.

This outfit was super-comfortable, too, which is a top priority for the craziness of NYFW.  The best part about it, though, is that I can recreate the look with different pieces over and over again: next time, I’ll wear my vintage Levi’s with a rock tee and leather vest, or maybe try this vintage vest with leather shorts and a crop top.  I’ll be sure to share whatever I come up with next!

Trend Report: Bra-Over-Shirt

The inner-wear as outer-wear trend has gone through a lot of phases in the past few seasons.  Starting out with sheer tops that showed off pretty bras underneath, the exhibitionist trend progressed to cropped bralette tops worn with high-waisted skirts.  After seasons and seasons of see-through and skin, designers are finally pushing back with a new bra-inspired trend: the bra-over-the-shirt look.  It sounds a little crazy, and it is a little crazy- but that’s fashion, right?

The latest bra trend evolved out of a running joke- avant garde designers and fashion bloggers with a sense of humor wanted to pay tribute to the bra-top trend in a cheeky way.  Starting with Maison Martin Margiela’s line for H&M last year, the trend has evolved into a full-on runway hit!

We’re crediting the Man Repeller, Leandra Medine, with getting the ball rolling on this one.  This sassy blog post invited girls to wear their bras over a tee shirt as a new way to rock the “bra” boat.  For Spring 2014, Miuccia caught on and showcased giant, glittering bra shapes over almost every look in her show- genius!  We’re kinda obsessed with her bra coat.

Now, the Pre Fall 2014 look books are starting to come out and it’s clear that the look is here to stay.  Jean Paul Gaultier took some of the humor out of Prada’s SS14 look and offered sleek leather and silk bralettes styled over luxurious separates for the new season.

We’re a little skeptical- we LOVE the look of this trend on the runway, but we don’t know if we could pull it off IRL.  What about you?

 

Throwback Thursday: Edie Sedgwick

edie-sedgwick-11

Edie Sedgwick…the It Girl of the 60s, Andy Warhol’s muse, the reason girls think it’s OK to wear leggings as pants.  Unfortunately, Edie Sedgwick was only person in the world who could pull that look off and look stylish- though that hasn’t stopped us from trying to emulate her!

 

Pre-Pixie cut Edie

She came from the ultimate American family: her great-great-great grandfather signed the Declaration of Independence, but her American roots reach all the way back to 1635, when her seventh-great grandfather was the 1st Major General of one of the first settled colonies.  Edie got sick of being seeped in all that tradition though, and set out to make a totally unique name for herself in the early 60s.

In 1965 Edie met Andy Warhol and became his muse- she was an actress in many of his avant-garde films.  She was rumored to be dating Bob Dylan, and is widely thought to be the inspiration behind his hit song “Just Like A Woman”.  She quickly became one of the most famous socialites of the decade, although that took its toll: Edie was addicted to drugs and alcohol, and managed to spend her entire inheritance in just 6 months.  Her wardrobe during this time was positively inspirational, though!

Edie’s  short bottle-blond haircut, mod eye-makeup, and thick eyebrows have become iconic.  She was even known to draw on a mole a la Marilyn Monroe everyday!  Edie wasn’t fond of pants, and dared to wear black opaque tights or black hotpants in lieu of proper bottoms.  Graphic stripes, giant chandelier earrings, and big fur or feathered coats were staples in Sedwick’s wardrobe, and to this day these items scream “Edie!”

Since the Swingin’ 60s are back in full swing for Spring 2014, the signature Edie look is easy to recreate.  Our disco-ball statement earrings are 100% Sedgwick, and we know Edie would die over our perfect black leggings.  Paired with a striped top and black and white blazer, they’re right on trend.  Edie loved chunky sweaters, too- our neon knit mixes modern-day trendiness with 60s flair!

If you want to get Sedgwick’s style, minus the no-pants thing, try our green shift dress!  The cut is all 60s, but it offers a little more modestly that Edie’s traditional fare.  Want more Edie inspiration?  Check out the movie Factory Girl, starring Sienna Miller (with a cameo appearance by Mary Kate Olsen, for all you fangirls out there).

Get The Look: New Year’s Eve Part 2

New Year’s Eve is almost upon us!  If you’re still in need of an outfit for the night, you’re not alone.  We have so many ideas, but haven’t decided which direction we want to go in yet.  Stylist Janelle loved her black and gold looks from this blog post, but now she’s wondering if she should go in a more non-traditional direction.  Feeling the same way?  We’ve got you covered!  Here are two amazing NYE options from stylehaus:

IMG_6018_result

This romantic archived Lanvin dress is so dreamy- we love the way its silk and tulle materials languidly drape over the body.  Since this is an archived item, this dress is sure to be the only one of its kind out on New Year’s Eve!  A crystal clear statement necklace adds a little sparkle without distracting from the elegant dress, and black tights are a must if you’ll be out in the cold.  If you want a totally unique NYE outfit, this is your best bet!

 

IMG_6067_result

 

IMG_6066_result

Still, we can’t really consider “gray” a color.  If you want to add a little bit more intrigue to your NYE outfit, go for green!  As Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2013, this emerald green tone is totally appropriate for the last night of the year.  Its stretchy knit fabric hugs curves in all the right ways, and it’s the perfect backdrop for a badass leather jacket.  Every outfit needs some sparkle on New Year’s Eve, so add a statement necklace or two to the mix and voila- a fun NYE look that’s anything but basic.

If these looks are screaming your name, you can get them at stylehaus.  Stop by our location at the Grove, or call 323-655-5900 to order!

It’s time to start planning out those holiday outfits!  For us, New Year’s Eve is the ultimate fashion holiday- it’s the one night when you can drench yourself in sequins and sparkles and no one will bat an eye at your over-the-top get up.  Considering we incorporate glittery things into our outfits on a daily basis, NYE is a welcome excuse to go overboard!

A popular color combo for NYE, this year and always, is black and gold-  mixing a dark hue with something bright and brassy just makes for a perfect holiday pairing.   Today stylist Janelle shows you how to strike the perfect balance between black and gold for New Year’s Eve with stylehaus items!

This black and gold dress from stylehaus basically does all of the work for you.  Tiny sparkles of gold woven into the black knit give you an ethereal glow that’s subtle and appropriate for the occasion.  Pile on some silver and gold statement necklaces to up the festive factor, and incorporate another color into the mix if you’re feeling bold.  Janelle went with red- very dramatic- and matched her ruby slippers to a red snakeskin clutch.  Love this look!

If you’re going for a more in-your-face kind of sparkle, look no further than our gold sequined dress.  A total throwback to the disco-tastic ‘70s, this piece features a high neckline and a low scooped back- perfect for dancing in.  Add black tights to keep warm, and a black and gold fringe bag for more 70s vibes.

It Factor Friday: Pink

pink-fashion-4

We’re not sure if we can refer to a pastel tone as a “dark horse”…but pastel pink was definitely the dark horse trend of Fall 2013.  The It color of the season was seen on tons of the Fall 2013 runways, if not a little sparingly: most designers dipped their toes into pastel waters for the traditionally-dark season, but that little taste was enough to make fashion influencers dive head-first into the trend!

Pops of pink took the Carven, Paul Smith, and Mulberry AW13 collections to new heights, and regular high fashion heavy-hitters like Marc Jacobs, Prada, and Celine featured the girlish hue too.  Popular tones ranged from the bubblegum variety to a dusty rose shade, from ballerina blush to pastel pink.  While the color barely made a dent in the runway shows of Fall, it has dominated the street style world ever since!

If you want to add the It Factor to your look, your best bet is incorporating pink into your winter wardrobe.   You can do this pretty much however you want- a big pink coat is sure to make you an overnight style sensation, and pink fuzzy sweaters are a darling way to throw it back to the mod 60s.  A pink midi skirt is a sweet-as-pie take on the trend!

stylehaus makes getting the look a no-brainer:  swing by and try on our pale pink suit!  Wear the double breasted blazer and slim trousers together or separately.  However you wear them, you’re sure to be on-trend.

The one rule for wearing pink?  Make sure your look isn’t overly sweet.  Balance out the saccharine color with something a little off, like frayed cutoff shorts or sporty Nikes.
