We knew something was up with major blogger Bryan Boy attended Alexander Wang’s ultra hyped Spring 2015 show in EDM inspired attire: a neon-printed tee, stacked kandi bracelets, and a teddy bear pacifier.

But that was just the start of this rollicking rave party! Cool kid label MBMJ sent out a collection inspired by ‘80’s ravers, with models strutting to flashing club lights and classic house tracks.

Jeremy Scott teamed up with Miley Cyrus to create an over-the top spectacle, replete with mixed media decor and artwork made up of what might be found on the floor of any Skrillex show.

The Cyrus-designed accessories that Jeremy Scott’s models walked in were strikingly similar to ‘Kandi’, the colorful beaded bracelets that ravers trade with each other at shows as a gesture of friendship.

So leave your minimalism in Summer and go forth, go neon, and go hard!

 

Little Fashion: Style Comes in All Sizes

As we obsessed over photos of little fashionistas, we came across the Instagram account Fashion Kids. From there it was a black hole of mini gladiator sandals, beanies, sneakers and sunnies. To think fashion inspiration is coming from a well dressed three or five-year old is unbelievable but you know what….believe it! We think it’s safe to say that Suri Cruz started this whole kids of fashion trend and we fully support it. They may not be celebrity children, but they deserve the spotlight. Moms, you have done well and we salute you with this “mini” fashion tribute.

BEANIES

@miss_gabby_13@miss_gabby_13

Genesis and her little California style is keeping us on our A-game with beanie after beanie. If you’re not familiar, us Cali girls tend to rock this trend year round and this peanut sized hipster knows what style is all about.

@gavinduh@gavinduh

It’s obvious that four-year old Gavin has some mini swagger with his denim on denim look but we are obsessing over the hair. Need we say more? Not really. He speaks for himself on YouTube.

MENSWEAR INSPIRED

@ewkak@ewkak

Three years old never looked so adorable, especially when it’s menswear inspired. Side zip skinny khakis and Converse inspired kicks caught our eye on this fashion trend of girls rocking it just like the boys. Three year old Michelle shows us grown ladies how it’s done.

SUSPENDERS

@marioyannis@marioyannis

Mario and his suspenders. Ugh…you are a site to see little man. Is it us or does he have a David Beckham/European style going on? Three years old has treated you well. We can’t wait to see year four. Check him out on Twitter @YanisMario.

VESTS

@_heatherrl@_heatherrl

Ev knows street style and there is no question about it. An oversized camo vest shows off a little bit of rocker and we are completely convinced. Little lady, you wear it well.

SUNNIES

@olkafiolka@olkafiolka

A five-year old who loves beau hudson? Umm yes please. Little Liam is a boy with style and we are feelin’ the “Bruno Mars if he wore aviators” vibe he has going on.

TOP KNOT

@hails_world@hails_world

Haileigh is taking over the world at four years old and with this look and a killer top knot, we can see how she’s doing just that. This little fashionista knows when to keep it sleek and when to let her hair down.

Sweatshirts: An On and Off Duty Trend

The sweatshirt…an all American staple that has become a worldwide fashion statement in the most comfortable way possible. With a collared button down, under a leather jacket, or strictly on its own, we can all agree that a crew neck sweatshirt is a piece we all need in our wardrobe for those days of not knowing what to wear. The look says “I want to be comfortable yet put together and fashion forward”.

IMG_8202

From Balenciaga and Givenchy to Alexander Wang and 3.1 Phillip Lim, the runway was swarming with sweatshirts that everyone had to have. The Givenchy Bambi sweatshirt is a celebrity fashion yes and it’s versatility has been endless, paired with a long sheer dress on the red carpet even. If Bambi can do it, then so can this Clover Canyon “Smokin’ Granny” sweatshirt-like sweater.

IMG_8204

With the in-between weather of spring, mixing winter and summer pieces creates new looks like this Avelon Hatchet Mesh Tank under the “Smokin’ Granny”. This outfit is great for running errands and lunch with friends but switches to night by removing the sweater and adding heels. Having a few go-to sweatshirts makes layering easy and effortlessly chic.

Liking what you see? Of course you do. Get both of these tops at stylehaüs as well as other great sweatshirts and sweaters here!

Black & White: The Trend That Never Dies

It’s no secret that black & white will always be a forever trend. Neutrals are easy go-to colors that keep us on our toes when last-minute changes are necessary. Whether your style is runway chic, hipster, preppy or grunge, we all have a B&W look that we love and can count on. Two colors, such as these, not only look great when colorblocked but have the ability to create an unlimited amount of opportunity when it comes to mixing prints.

Spring 2014 was made for these gorgeous hues with looks from Balenciaga and Ralph Lauren.

A classic B&W menswear look never takes a back seat, even to the bold and over-the-top colorful style of Anna Dello Russo.

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.

 

TREND REPORT: TURTLENECKS

The recent street style during Fashion Month has made it clear that if there’s one thing your wardrobe needs right now, it’s a turtleneck.

 

London-Fashion-Week-2014-street-style

Turtlenecks were long relegated to conservative older women and Steve Jobs, but last year we saw a spike in turtlenecks at the Fall shows.  The trend continued through spring with shorter, sleeveless turtlenecks; and the latest round of runway shows and street style snaps prove that the look is here to stay!

 

london-fashion-week-street-style-2014

street-style-london-fashion-week-2014

Who would’ve thought a turtleneck could be so versatile?  Wear one under Spring’s strapless dresses until the weather gets warm enough to wear a dress on its own- extra point for layering a blazer on top!  Or, use a tight turtleneck to lend some coverage to a crop top-and-high-waisted-skirt set like Yasmin Sewell.  Olivia Palermo wears the trend well underneath a tough leather jacket and a leather skirt- the coziness of her turtleneck sweater softens up the look and brings attention to her beautiful face!

Convinced yet?  If you don’t have a turtleneck in your closet already, get movin’!

TREND REPORT: CUTE CLUTCHES

During Fashion Month, you can’t tear us away from style.com.  We’re constantly pouring over the newest runway shows, checking out Tommy Ton’s latest street style snaps, and keeping an eye out for emerging trends- both from the runway and from the streets.  One trend that we can’t deny is cutesy clutches.   From quirky to scholarly to puffy and furry, here are the clutches we can’t wait to get our hands on.

Erin Fetherson

Erin Fetherson Fall 2014

At Erin Fetherson, the clothes were sophisticated, feminine, and romantic.  The designer balanced the elegant dresses with something decidedly more kitschy: quirky clutches!  Piggybacking off of the HUGE book clutch trend, Fetherson threw her hat into the ring with a throwback “Etiquette Book” clutch.  We also loved her rounded “Charmed I’m Sure” purse- the shape is retro and modern all at once, the perfect accent to Fetherson’s modern-but-classic gowns.

Kate Spade is the queen of quirk, and her Fall 2014 collection was one of her best yet.  The clothes were great, yes, but we could keep our eyes off of the wealth of cute little clutches that accessorized every look!  From a fat cat to a Japanese fan, these purses would give even the most minimal outfits a punch of personality.  A Chinese take-out tote took us back to the early aughties, and a whimsical birdcage bag was our favorite of the bunch.  We’d wear it with Victorian-inspired lace!

Tanya Taylor Fall 2014

New-ish designer Tanya Taylor converted us to hardcore fans with her Fall 2014 collection.  Many of the pieces had a DIY vibe, including the fuzzy Mongolian fur clutches that she claims to have made from “pillows she picked up at West Elm over the weekend” and Manic Panicdye [style.com].  We LOVE these!  The fur is all winter, but the bright, look-at-me shades ensure that these bags will be wearable all through Spring as well.  We’ll take both, please!

 

Are you on board with the bags of the season?

 

STREET STYLE: NYFW LOVES PINK

New York Fashion Week is going strong, and this season’s crop of street stylers are doing their best to pull out all the style stops, despite the Polar Vortex.  From big furry coats to loads of layers, the emerging cold weather trends are positively inspirational!  Our fave street-style look to hit the blogs, though, is PINK!  A big trend for SS14, it’s safe to say the pink will still be an It color come Fall.  Here’s how the best of the best rock the soft hue:

1.  With basics

 

new-york-fashion-week-street-style-2014

Model Karolina Kurkova exited the shows in the pink blazer, collar popped.  Perfection!  She layered her pink piece over basic separates- a white button down, black pullover, and distressed boyfriend jeans.  Simple but still over-the-top stylish.

2.  Head-to-toe

 

new-york-fashion-week-street-style-2014

This pretty lady is rocking rose head-to-toe!  What makes this work is that she mixes up her shades: her a pale pink skirt, slightly darker hoodie, ombred coat, rose-petal purse, and black-contrasted oxfords all clash a little, which is good.  A pop of black (by way of her tights) ensures that this look is anything but overly-sweet!

3.  With pants

 

new-york-fashion-week-street-style-2014

Pink coats are all over the place and pink sweaters are everywhere, too- so the most out-of-the-box way to wear pink is with pants.  This lady’s wide-leg pair is super on-trend, especially when worn with a knee-length coat.  The oversized, menswearish proportions balance out the feminine hue.

4.  Layered up

 

street-style-new-york-fashion-week-2014

Don’t just count on your coat to make a statement- this style star made sure her pink coat was only one aspect of a well-thought-out outfit.  Her pale turtleneck topped with a graphic tunic, layered over leather pants and printed shoes would’ve been a hit by itself- but the pink coat adds another layer of intrigue!

5.  With a matching hat

 

street-style-new-york-fashion-week-2014

Don’t limit yourself to one pink piece.  If you love the color, go all out!  Match a rose-colored coat to a knit beanie for a hip spin on the trend.  Take a cue from this street styler and pair your pink with white- so classic and fresh!

6.  With powder blue

 

new-york-fashion-week-street-style-2014

One of our favorite color pairings is blush pink with powder blue.  Something about the mixture of soft pastel tones just works!  The easiest way to get the look?  Grab a pink coat and throw on a blue beanie.  Extra points for belting your coat!

How will you wear pink this season?

 

Trend Report: Red Carpet 2014

The Golden Globes ushered in a new era in Red Carpet dressing.  Gone were overly revealing, overly poufy gowns of 2013 and instead we saw classic, edgy, and covered-up red carpet fashions.  Classic colors- black, white, and red- made up the bulk of the ladies’ gowns, and Old Hollywood-esque cuts were the most popular, on the likes of Lena Dunham and Sofia Vergara.  The Critic’s Choice Awards and last night’s SAG Awards echoed much of the same:  starlets are leaning toward sophisticated silhouettes that are balanced and feminine- but they aren’t afraid to play around a little bit, either.  Here are some of 2014’s top red carpet trends so far:

 

Bright Red:

 

red-carpet-2014

Amy Adams, Emma Watson, Lupita Nyong’o, Elisabeth Moss

Amy Adams, Emma Watson, newcomer Lupita Nyong’o, and Taylor Swift (among others) all chose to wear a bold shade of red at the Globes.  Elisabeth Moss stole the SAG Awards red carpet in her perfectly classic red gown! The color of the year has  orange undertones, coming off brighter and fresher than vampy red and burgundy gowns that were popular for last awards season.

 

Classic Black:

 

red-carpet-2014

Cate Blanchett, Amy Poehler, Emma Roberts

The past few seasons have been very experimental, with prints and crazy cutouts making headlines- but stars are going back to basics this year.  Black was an overwhelmingly popular color choice for the Globes-  Cate Blanchett, a constant Best Dressed frontrunner, wore a black Armani gown, host Amy Poehler wore a black Stella McCartney sheath, and Emma Roberts, Hayden Panettiere, and Sofia Vegara all went for basic black as well.

 

White:

 

red-carpet-2014

Lupita Nyong’o, Margot Robbie, Kerry Washington, Gretchen Mohl

Less dramatic but more eye-catching, white was a popular dress color at the Golden Globes too.  Hollywood’s favorite red carpet girl Jennifer Lawrence wore a strapless white Dior gown, new girl Margot Robbie wore white Gucci with a plunging neckline, and Kerry Washington clothed her baby bump in custom white Balenciaga.  At the Critic’s Choice Awards, Lupita Nyong’o wore a stunning white column dress with cutouts.  Gretchen Mohl was our favorite white dress of the season, though- she wore a fishnetted J.Mendel number to the SAG Awards last night!

 

Conservative cuts:

 

red-carpet-2014

Uma Thurman, Olivia Wilde, Elisabeth Moss

Princess gowns made a few appearances on the carpet, but the most popular silhouette was body-conscious and covered-up.    Emma Thompson, Uma Thurman, Oliva Wilde, Elisabeth Moss, and Kristin Chenowith all went with gowns that feature a high neckline, floor-grazing skirt, and tight fit.  Fuss-free and modern!

 

Deep Vs:

 

red-carpet-2014

Kate Mara, Michelle Dockery

Plunging necklines will always have a place on the red carpet, though, and many actresses went for gowns in that classic shape.  Amy Adams’ Valentino gown and Kate Mara’s J. Mendel dress at the Globes both featured necklines that plunged all the way down to the rib cage!  Michelle Dockery wore her version of a plunging neckline at the SAG Awards.  The women balanced out the revealing nature of their top half with flowing, drapey skirts.

 

Asymmetrical:

 

red-carpet-2014

Julie Deply, Amber Heard, Kristen Bell

A new type of neckline emerged too: the asymmetrical neckline.  Many dresses featured an edgy one-shoulder fit and asymmetrically cut necklines at the Globes.  Julie Deply, Ariel Winter, Amber Heard, and Amy Poehler all chose dresses with this unique look, and Kristin Bell gave the trend a shot at the Critic’s Choice Awards too.

 

Playing with classics:

 

red-carpet-2014

Emma Watson, Julia Roberts, Margot Robbie, Jennifer Lawrence

It also seems that stars and their stylists are letting themselves be more experimental with their red carpet choices.  Emma Watson wore a stunning backless Dior dress featuring a high slit that showed off a slim pair of pants underneath!  Lupita Nyong’o’s Globes dress was a hybrid dress/cape, and Julia Roberts layered her strapless black gown over a crisp white button down.  At the Critic’s Choice Awards, Margot Robbie even pushed the boundaries with a lacy black jumpsuit!  Jennifer Lawrence updated her classicly-fit column gown (Dior, of course) at the SAG Awards with holographic sparkles- one of the biggest runway trends for Spring.  Clearly, the rules are being thrown out the window.

 
Belts:

 

red-carpet-2014

Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Jennifer Garner, Amy Adams

The Critic’s Choice Awards are decidedly more casual, and a big trend to emerge from the night was belted dresses.   Sandra Bullock added a metal belt to her ruffled column gown, Cate Blanchett cinched her waist with a wide black belt over her simple navy dress, and Oprah Winfrey streamlined her shape with a sweet bow-shaped belt. Jennifer Garner threw a simple patent belt over her classic black strapless gown at the SAG Awards, and Amy Adams livened up her blue SAG dress with a sparkly waist-cincher, too!

 

Appliques:        

 

red-carpet-2014

Drew Barrymore, Lupita Nyong’o

    

Floral appliqués made a few appearances at the awards shows, most notably on Drew Barrymore’s Globes dress (Monique Lhuillier) and Lupita Nyong’o’s custom Gucci gown at the SAG Awards.  This is such a fun look, but it DEFINITELY is not for everyone.

 

Crop Tops:

 

red-carpet-2014

Kerry Washington, Zooey Deschanel

Kerry Washington’s crop top/wide skirt outfit at last night’s SAG Awards polarized fashionistas- some hated it, some loved it.  We loved it!  Kerry bravely showed off her baby bump, and we think she’ll look back on this outfit and be glad she flaunted her goods.  Zooey Deschanel’s Oscar de la Renta dress for the Globes had the same effect on people.  While she didn’t pull it off quite as well as Washington (honestly, only because she’s not preggers!) we like the look and hope crop tops become more of a red carpet thing.

 

We predict that the rest of this awards season will see more of the same: a return to classics, dresses that are subtley sexy, edgier choices that push the boundaries, and bold colors.

 

It Factor Friday: Holographic Fashion

Designers took metallics a step further for Spring 2014 and presented pieces that were iridescent and holographic.  These pieces, a different color from every angle, are futuristic and fun and we can’t get enough.  The look reminds us of our Lisa Frank folders and stickers in the ‘90s, so how could we not love it?!

Everyone from Tom Ford to Cacherel put their own spin on the holographic trend.  Mr. Ford presented the sexiest version (of course) in the form of a body-con mini glowing like a disco ball.  3.1 Phillip Lim put gave a gritty edge to the look with light distressing and a dark base color; we love that Lim accessoried with futuristic frames too!  Lanvin’s irredescent dresses were vaugley 80s , while Marc Jacobs made the look modern with a silver bomber jacket.   Cacherel  mixed two trends in one: iridescence and matchy-matchy sets.  Our favorite version of the breakout trend, though, came from Christopher Kane.  His delicate dresses looked absolutely otherworldly and elegant, like something an alien queen would wear.

holographic-trend-2014-spring

Of course, stylehaus got in on the look too!  We gravitated towards this holographic clutch from MUGLER by Thierry Mugler for it’s simplicity.  Since head-to-to holographic wear is a hard look to pull off IRL, we’ll add the trend to our closets in bits and pieces.  Stylist Bethany paired it with jeans, white pumps, and a black top- sophisticated, playful, and pulled-together!

If you want to indulge in the holographic look, you can scoop up this clutch at stylehaus for $690.  Call 323-655-5900 to order!
