Fishnets

January 9, 2017

Everything old becomes new again, and one of the latest styling trends is no exception.

Fishnet stockings have been around for decades, taking on personas from sexy-sleazy (Fredericks of Hollywood) to grunge (Madonna’s Material Girl). This time around, the look is much cleaner, less overt, and in some cases downright sporty. No garter belt necessary here!

Pair them with old school sneakers and rolled up pants for casual take on the trend.

Dress Over Pants

August 3, 2016

Just when we think there isn’t a new way to style jeans, or layer, we spot something new that elevates our everyday items to high fashion status.

Suddenly, chic women are wearing ultra girlie dresses with slim jeans or trousers underneath for a new play on proportion and quirky femininity.

At DKNY, a crimson slip dress layers over slouchy trousers.

Are you ready to pull this look off ? The secret is clearly in the mix…be sure to balance a dres that is uber feminine with pants that are more casual ( you can’t go wrong with skinny jeans!) and have fun with your footwear. It’s the perfect way to breathe life into those girlie dresses relegated to the back of the closet!

 

Hemming and Hawing

October 16, 2015

Jeans are a staple in everyone’s wardrobe. These days, they can go almost anywhere depending on what they are paired with. Rolled or frayed hems add a unique and authentic air to jeans. While some of these ideas we created in the “wet processing” of the jeans ( a term used in the industry which refers to the washing and treatment processes used to emulate the look of natural wear and fading,) some you can achieve at home.
Here are a few of our favorite hem treatments, and a little DIY inspo for leveling up your denim game:

WTF

Honestly, WTF

Unevenly cut raw hems highlight footwear in a casual way. To do this yourself, cut your jeans higher in the front and longer in the back, and simply let them fray. Trim any super long fringe after washing so you don’t trip!

FASHIONISTA

Fashionista.com

Denim hems are generally double rolled and topstitched. The part that is folded deeply inside the hem stays darker than the more exposed areas after washing and wearing. When you let the hem down, you get a multihued effect, as well as a raw edge. Bonus points for tall girls, who also gain about 3/4″ or more in the length of their jeans when they let the hem down. To achieve this look, carefully pick the stitching from the bottom and unroll the hem. Toss them in the wash to relax the fabric and press the bottom to get them to lay flat.

VOGUE

Vogue.com

Don’t try this one at home kids… This multi-hued and distressed look happened at the factory, and took some mad technique to execute! Best to buy these from the pros that created them; Genetic Denim Los Angeles.

HWTF

Honestly, WTF

This technique is hard to achieve yourself, as the darker part was likely either protected from fading during the manufacturing process, or the bottom of the jeans were dipped in pure indigo after they were made. To fake it, cut a few inches off the bottom of a pair of dark jeans, and sew it a pair of lighter colored jeans. Be sure that the leg shape of the jeans are the same, so that the piece you are sewing on matches up perfectly. Leave the bottom raw to get the perfect fray.

The cuffed jean is the easiest look to re-create. The newest cuff is wider, and turned up only once. Fold your straight leg jeans up and make a wide cuff. Feel free to mess it up a bit, for a more relaxed, authentic look.

The Hair Tuck

October 20, 2014

It’s the season for chunky turtlenecks and scarves. There is something I love about letting my long hair stay partially tucked into whatever  is wrapping my neck, that adds a little style to a simple look.

Let the front tendrils fall as they may, and try this look that says “long hair, don’t care” in the chicest of ways…

Festival Style: LACE

April 16, 2014

It’s music festival time, kicking off with Coachella last weekend. Festival dressing has a style all it’s own, with sexy, boho looks ruling the day. While flower crowns and hippie inspired dresses may not fit into most of our day to day lives, there are some trends to be extracted. Such is the case with lace. Textural cotton laces and crochet add a feminine, yet casual twist to any look. Why not try a lace trimmed blouse with your jeans this weekend, and embrace a little festival chic!

Here a just a few of our favorites:

Softly tiered cotton with insets of rustic lace give this dress a sweet, yet edgy vibe. Add a sheer floral top to complete the look.

Pretty in Punk

May 9, 2013

Monday night marked the annual “Met Ball,” honoring the opening of the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s latest exhibition entitled Punk: From Chaos to Couture.

Much speculation lead up to the event, as to how the theme would be handled by the revelers, hand selected by Vogue’s high priestess herself, Anna Wintour.

Well, today we have the answer, and in most cases, it was handled poorly.

While a few went all out, (Madonna you go girl!) many opted for odd choices that left them looking awkward and uncomfortable. Below are some of our favorites, who embraced the movement and looked pretty in punk:

The grande dame of the evening may have inadvertently been the most punk of all. While others tried to conform to societal expectations, Ms.Wintour bucked the norm, and showed up in a demure floral Chanel gown. What looked the least in keeping with the theme,may just have out- punked everyone.

Tie One On

March 8, 2013

From the modernist to the retro-couture inspired, scarf tied necklines made a statement on the catwalks this season. Wide swaths of fabric draped and wrapped the necklines of coats of jackets, framing the faces of some the world’s most beautiful women.

Curses, Foiled Again

February 18, 2013

Fall 2013 Fashion Week has moved onto London, where the trends continue to evolve.

While metallic has been a big idea for a few seasons now, we are seeing a slicker version. These foil finishes take the metals to a whole new level of shine.
