Blank Stares

At Minx we love embracing a little kitsch into our style – it’s important to not take yourself or your style so seriously. When we are investing into our style and into the image we are creating for ourself each day, it can feel like every move we make must be perfect. Truth is – what’s most important is to have fun. Fun is one of our shop’s values and it’s an important one. There are subtle ways to incorporate fun into your wardrobe, perhaps with some hidden details or an unpredictable color or fabric. On the other hand, there are hamburger sweaters that are an obvious statement of joy. We hope you can find some joy in your creative fashion expression!

Oui, Oui!

With the first day of Fall just a few days ago, it’s time now to start considering what sweaters you already have in your wardrobe and what new trends and staples you’re wanting to add this season. This “OUI” sweater is the perfect blend of a cool-weather slogan tee and a 50s letterman style sweater. It has a vintage feel with a more modern and trend-driven color pallet. We decided to pair this with white skinny jeans to help the texture and color of the knit really stand out. Plus, that whole “don’t wear white after Labor Day” rule is for the birds! Fashion rules, as you know, are meant to be broken, friends!

When adding a go-to piece, like a floral dress, to your closet it’s important to notice what details set it apart and make it special. The sleeve detail definitely sets this dress apart.

In Your Dreams

Minx has been built on not only a love of and deep connection to fashion and visual expression, but also to music. Connection to live performance, music history and trends, and melody are all foundational to who Minx is. We recognize that music and fashion are sides of the same coin of expression – it would be hard for us to have one without the other. As music trends and taste change and return, so, we find, does fashion. We hope you find that these inexplicable forces are serving you well in how you navigate your world and that Minx is able to help join them together. Imagine the music throughout your life that has shaped who you are and how you see the world. If you were to visualize it – what colors would you see? We see this process similarly with fashion. What tune do you hear in your head when you wear a floral print? How about a leather moto jacket? Does the rhythm of your steps change with the change of your attire? We hope you will explore these ideas within yourself and as you step outside of your fashion comfort zone, maybe let your new favorite song lead the way? Sure, maybe you’ve never worn a crop top. But something about blasting the new Beyonce album kind of makes you wanna give it a try. Go with that! And we’ll be here to give you compassionate and authentic guidance while you make those choices. You got this!

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!
