Lounge In Luxury

Last month’s Spring 2015 fashion week is likely to set the styles we’ll be sporting by mid-Winter. I’m happy to announce that for once, labels are designing high-end garments with comfort in mind.

Runways were packed with long, lean looks that read like the marriage of loungewear and black tie. Stand out looks included Rag & Bone’s loose leather tunic and trousers and Calvin Klein’s spacious matching tank top/long skirt sets.

Marc Jacobs sent out models in massive floor length skirts topped by a navy zip up hoodie that made an interesting mix of accessible streetwear and creative couture creation.

DKNY and The Row sent out models in all white, two piece ensembles that looked casually modern and faintly futuristic.

Models at Stella McCartney strutted in deliciously delicate, ultra luxe pieces straight from your dream pajama party.

If you’re not on the runway, I’d suggest pairing loose bottoms with a matching (or simply complementary) fitted top. All white is my favorite color scheme for this look, but if you’re not down with wearing so much of such a stark hue, go for your favorite neutral.

If you do dare, head to toe white was one of Spring 2015 Fashion Week’s biggest hues and you’re likely to start spotting a crazy amount of starlets and street style bloggers rocking all white everything.

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.

New Year's Eve Outfit Inspiration

We would argue that New Year’s Eve is fashion’s biggest holiday.  Thanksgiving calls for something comfortable, Christmas calls for something family-appropriate, the 4th of July calls for specific colors…but New Year’s Eve is a fashionista’s chance to go all-out!  With this is mind, you’d have thought we had our outfits picked out weeks ago- but of course we don’t.  We do have tons of inspiration for the big night, though. Now we just have to figure out the specifics!

Kate Moss is killing it in her sparkly dress and black and white fur coat.  Something like this would be classic but not too predictable for tonight!

 

sequins-and-leopard-print

Sequin dress + leopard print coat would be fun too for a more in-your-face combo!  (And isn’t NYE all about being in-your-face?)

 

leandra-medine-sequin-pants

A sequined dress might be too commonplace though, and that’s where our sequined pants come in!  With a tee and blazer, we’d end 2013 super comfy .

On the other hand, we love a good jumpsuit, despite how hard they make it to use the bathroom.  Maybe not the most practical choice for a night of drinking, but how cool does Stella McCartney look in her gold one-piece??  We just might have to break out our vintage 70s version.

 

new-years-eve-outfit-2013

On the other other hand, playing with texture is so much fun!  We are LOVING Atlantic-Pacific blogger Blaire Edie’s feathers-and-sweater mix; it look simultaneously comfortable and celebratory.  We’d even wear our sunglasses at night.

We’ll probably be picking out our outfit at the last minute.  What are you wearing??  Whatever you choose, have a safe & happy New Year’s Eve!

Flowers are blooming and birds are chirping: spring is finally here! While we’ve been anticipating this for months, spring is finally upon us and we couldn’t be happier. Although we love the colored pants trend, we’re ready to incorporate some fun skin-showing skirts into our warm-weathered wardrobe! These designers were spring-inspired as they added bright, colorful flowers, fruits, and patterns to their pieces. Not sure how to pair them? Any of these skirts would look fabulous with a blouse or tank top, and you can transition from day-to-night with a more structured jacket to complete your look. Spring skirts also look great with almost any shoe: pair with leather sandals, wedges, or flats for a chic, springtime vibe. We paired this yellow high-waisted floral skirt with this black crop top, vintage necklace, and booties for a boho-chic look for our take on the trend!
