Bad Kitty

The white t-shirt & jeans. This combo may be the most beloved in all of street style history. It seems like whenever we come across an accessory, piece of outerwear, or shoe that seems too outlandish to wear outside of a Fashion Week Runway, our go-to is to always try it with a t-shirt and pair of jeans. This practical pairing seems to make anything more realistic and approachable like magic. Maybe there was some subtle eyerolls there, and it’s okay, we get it! With such an accommodating outfit as the white tee/jeans, there does run the risk of it getting monotonous. But don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater! (Yikes, that phrase is intense) I just mean, before you swear off of the white tee/jeans look entirely, try adding some personal flare. It’s a great canvas, all it needs is some personal creativity! No need for couture – just a colorful neck scarf or layering piece can elevate this classic staple into something a bit more individualized.

Jet Set

There’s just somethin’ about Summer that makes wanna hit the open road! Maybe it’s the clear skies and great weather that gets your mind wandering during your work day. Whether you’re a frequent flyer or a stay-cation expert, having that perfect go-to dress that suits any destination is a must have for this travel season. As you begin packing, we recommend bringing a piece that lends itself to layering (as weather can be unpredictable!), is a clean pallet to go with whatever accessories you can bring, is made of a fabric that doesn’t wrinkle easily or hold onto all of those interesting travel smells, and is a classic shape and silhouette. This dress from Adeline is such a nice option! The pleats and sleeve detail make it special enough for a trip out of town, but is comfortable and effortless so it lends itself perfectly to wherever you find your sense of curiosity taking you! Bon Voyage!

The Cat’s Meow

Animal print! This timeless pattern has been represented and styled in hundreds of different ways throughout the decades. And here at Minx? We love it! We love it as a subtle pop of edge or as the main event of an outfit. It’s the magical pattern that, while it is very eye-catching, it can also read as a neutral. This means that although animal print is a wild pattern – you can still effortlessly add a pop of color, a red lip, or layers of accessories. Don’t let it scare you away, embrace the sass as the boss lady or rebel girl that you ARE!

Who Run The World

Sometimes you just toss on a mini skirt, some sparkle boots, and show the world what a bad ass chick you are! The demure, modest look of your typical LBD is nice but why not mix it up a bit for a night out? This mini moto skirt from Loveriche paired with this pin-up inspired top from Voodoo Vixen is the perfect combo for adding a bit of edge to the usual all-black look. We loved pairing this daring combo with our Levis Sherpa Jacket to add another nod to vintage fashion and some additional texture and color. This look is sure to turn heads and you’ll feel unstoppable in it!

Rockstar 101

The changing leaves, the hot cocoa, the holidays, the COATED DENIM – all things we look forward to in the cooler seasons. Coated denim is a really nice way to merge the comfort of your favorite pair of jeans with the interest and edginess of a shiny, leather-like, coating. These are just as effortless to style as jeans but instantly elevate your look. Here, we have styled a pair of Paige coated denim with some strappy heels from Chelsea Crew, but these pants could easily be paired with some booties or knee-high boots and transition easily into colder months. And this dark purple/wine color is an obsession of ours this season. Perhaps its the new millennial pink?

Think that all your light-toned florals are banished to the back of the closet now that Fall is here? Think again! The key to rocking your pastel patterns is to find them on fabrics that will keep you warm, are able to be layered, or that have some textural interest. All of these things you will find in this By Timo mini dress. The high neck and long sleeves make this dress completely Autumn appropriate without drowning you out in a sea of black and neutral-tones (not that we don’t LOVE neutrals, because whoah, we love ’em!) If bright colors are your thing – let that colorful flag fly all year ’round! These velvet Mary Janes from Chelsea Crew tie this look all together with the jewel-like velvet material – and how good would these shoes look over some black tights?!

Take a Bow

The floral shift dress is (or definitely should be!) a staple in every gals’ wardrobe. Its flirty and girly while still being adaptable to everyone’s personal style and flair. They can be dressed up with heels, or down with a denim jacket and sneakers. Its no secret the millions of wardrobe variations you can create with a floral dress and a little creativity. Feeling tired of your classic combos? Try different textures in the same color family. We love these velvet belt that can be tied in many different ways to suit the occasion. Adding some statement shoes, with some unexpected texture like faux fur or metal hardware, adds interest and changes up the entire vibe without my effort. Accessorizing is key for putting a new spin on your most beloved go-to pieces.
