Wearable Trends: 1940s Vintage-Inspired Dresses

It can be refreshing to revisit a simpler time when a feminine silhouette dominated and dressing down didn’t mean your favorite distressed weekend jeans. I’m talking about the chic silhouettes of 1940s vintage-inspired dresses.

Wearable Trends: Get Moving In Fashionable Activewear

Packing your life up in boxes forces you to take inventory on your wardrobe. I’ve come to realize I don’t have any decent pieces of “comfy clothes” or fashionable activewear.

Wearable Trends: Prairie Chic

Yes, you read that correctly, we are taking it to the countryside this month with the super-hot prairie chic trend for the spring. Yes this can be a difficult style to pull off if you are over 35 (frankly, I don’t think I’ll be sporting this trend this year). However, this trend does have a playful and comfortable vibe that can span all ages if you keep it classy.

Wearable Trends: The Classic Camel Coat

This month I want to get serious…. but keep it fun, because fashion is supposed to fun, right? This month I want to focus on a trend I wouldn’t necessarily call “trendy” but it’s a classic and it’s ALWAYS in style. You can wear it for a day look or an evening look, you can invest in an absolutely beautiful designer one or go mid-tier and still get a great bang for your buck. And either way, you’ll wear it until the end of the time. Let’s talk camel coats, shall we?

Wearable Trends: Stylish (Not Ugly!) Snow Boots

Now that we’ve rung in the New Year in our party dresses, sparkly shoes and bright baubles, the reality is starting to set in that there is nothing left to celebrate and the deep throes of winter are upon us. We’ve still got another three months of cold weather to get through and even though this time of year can be gloomy, that doesn’t mean we can’t look fabulous as we trudge through the inclement weather. Thankfully, we haven’t seen much snow or sleet so far this winter, but it’s bound to make an appearance any day now and when it does, you need to be ready with your stylish snow boots!

Wearable Trends: Fur-Lined Feet

One of my favorite things about fashion and style is when the unexpected becomes the norm. Trends come and go and some are pretty straightforward, but others will make you look twice and think, “Is that really for me?” So this time around, I want to talk about one of those trends: furry shoes. This trend has been around for the last couple of years but it wasn’t until fall 2016 it hit the mainstream. This holiday season, shoes are covered with fur. Whether it be just a dusting across the top, back or along the outsole, or fully covered in fur, furry shoes can make any outfit more exciting and fun.

Wearable Trends: Touches Of Fur

I am so ready for the holidays to arrive! Besides all of the presents, great food and spirited beverages, comes the sparkle and sass of the luxe party clothes I get to wear while celebrating with friends and family. Nothing says luxury more than a little fur draped over your shoulders or around your neck to provide both warmth and an aura of glam as you party the night away. Fur as an accent is everywhere this season so don’t miss the boat.

Wearable Trends: Following Florals Into Fall And Beyond

Fancy days are here again! And by fancy days, I mean the glitz and glamor that goes into holiday celebrations. With Thanksgiving just a few weeks away and Christmas just around the corner, it’s time to consider ways to spice up your winter wardrobe and I think winter florals are just the way to do it. I’ll be the first to admit that I almost immediately go to my black, gray and navy when the temperature turns, but this season there is no need (or want!) to be drab. Floral prints have migrated from the spring season and have thankfully popped up all over fall and winter wear.

Wearable Trends: Charming Capes For Changing Temps

As we are beginning to transition to that crisp fall weather (my favorite!) sometimes it can be rather difficult to figure out what kind of outwear to incorporate into your look. It’s not quite cool enough for your favorite parka or fur, but you still need something to keep you warm as you venture off to cocktail hour. Enter the perfect and stylish option: the cape! Regardless of the style, color or textile you decide to go with, the look of a cape draped over your shoulders is an instant elevation to your look.
