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.

The Way To Go High Low: How To Do Plaid & Not Look Like a Lumberjack

There’s no denying that there’s a special bond between the autumn season and plaid. I mean, it’s not really officially fall until we have donned our favorite checkered scarf or sweater, right? Plaid is just a part of autumn as is apple picking, pumpkin patch explorations and the rustic changing of the foliage. However, the tartan pattern can be quite polarizing. One wrong move and you can go from style darling to lost lumberjack

The Way To Go High Low: The Office Is Your Runway

Five out of the seven days of the week, we are expected to head to the office and rule the world. Client meetings, boardrooms and conference calls are boring enough, but can you imagine doing it all in a drab black and beige suit? How boring!

Unfortunately, it’s not as easy to score fashionable work attire as it is to stock up on new spring trends. Finding that perfect balance of stylish yet sophisticated, trendy and still professional looks is harder than scoring Adele tickets. Fret not, we did the work for you!

The Way to Go High Low: Orange You Glad It’s Spring?

Pantone may swear by pastels like rose quartz and serenity for 2016, but if the runways are any clue, it’s pretty clear that orange is also going to be a major color trend for this spring. From Altuzarra’s floral prints to Karen Walker’s navy and tangerine color combo, all signs point to the fact that the citrusy hue will be big this season.

The Way To Go High Low: The 90s Are Back!

It is a well-known fact that in fashion, trends repeat themselves. The boho game came into existence in the 70s and has seen resurgence in the early 2000’s and once again last season. The 60s mod trend has died and come back to life more times than any of us cares to admit. This time around, it’s the 90s decade…
