Summer Fashion Update

June 17, 2015

Now that the weather has officially changed, we are searching our closets for the perfect items to look modern, fashionable and cool as a cucumber in the humidity.

This season, there are a few “must haves” that we are lusting for. Early adopters may have them already, but for the rest of us, these items are becoming this season’s go-tos.

Jumpsuits: These have been floating around for a couple of seasons now, but this year, they are primed to take over for the maxi dress.Look for one with ease and fluidity that can be dressed up or down. Add a jacket for polish, and you can take this trend all the way to the office. Instead of shorts on the weekend, opt for a printed one piece romper.

Culottes: This one is a bit controvertial, since people either love them or hate them. For us, it is about finding the right proportion for your body that suits your personal style.

Flare leg jeans: We posted about these recently, but the skinny jean is taking a back seat to this new shape, reminiscent of the 1970’s. Wear them full length with a chunky heel, or crop them a bit and wear a flat sandal.

Fringed flats that lace up the leg

A little fringe: The 70’s were the biggest influence on the runways, and fringe showed up everywhere. While fringed suede skirts and jackets were prevelent, as was the long fringed shoulder bag, we are looking to be a little more subtle. We love the idea of a fringed shoe to take our look to the next level.

Fringe Benefits

September 8, 2014

It’s only been a few days since New York Fashion Week began, but already some trends are starting to emerge.

Fringe showed up on many catwalks, ranging from long fringe, to “eyelash” treatments and frayed edges.

Creatures of Comfort layered fringed knits over crisp cotton shirts:3fc3c6d72d660d7086482d6af6d9d427

Ulla Johnson also fringed her sweaters, worn atop easy wide legged pants:

Tibi added placed fringe to their lean pencil skirt:

Can’t wait to add this look to your wardrobe? No worries! Do as Rachel Comey and Ulla Johnson did, and fray the edges of your pants to get a jumpstart on the trend.

DIY: Cut off the hem of your jeans or heavy weight cotton bottoms. For a more refined look, stitch along the edge about 3/8″ up from the bottom to prevent the fabric from unravelling further during wear. Toss them in the washing machine, and trim the edges to take off the super long pieces and you’re good to go!
