Studio

The cold has arrived! It is here, friends, in a major way and while it may seem obvious that layering up is key to defending yourself against the winter-winds, we would also encourage you to play with textures as you layer! Taking a look in your closet, you can notice what kinda of knits and fabrics you may already gravitate towards: a chunkier knit sweater, a really fine cashmere, structured leather, – the list could go on and on. What we love about this look is it takes textures to the next level! This soft leather dress is the perfect juxtaposition for this fuzzy, furry pink sweater. Help keep your mixed-and-matched textures with something similar to tie it together. We love the zipper detail on the sleeves of the sweater and it ties in nicely with the hardware on the dress. So this winter, we hope you will not only step out of your layering box, but also go for it with the fabric textures you choose!

Sweater Weather

When you imagine winter-ware, and specifically sweaters, what sorts of words come to mind? Cuddly, yes. Oversized, perhaps. Knitted, yes of course. But there is so much more to these winter-weather staples! We are seeing sweaters in vastly different shapes, silhouettes, and styles. Cropped, leather accents, boat-neck, off the shoulder, tie-details. You name it and it’s probably on a sweater! Who says sweaters can’t be sexy, after all? Yes, they’re east to toss on and amazing to snuggle up in on a cold evening, but they can also be the star of your winter ensemble. Here we have a homage to old Hollywood, think: casual Marilyn Monroe with this off-the-shoulder black sweater from French Connection. Paired with dark, slimmed jeans, and a great, strappy heel, you are rocking a timeless look while also feeling comfortable for whatever the winter may bring. We hope you feel inspired to create a look with your sweaters as the main event rather than just another layering piece.

Set Up

It’s no secret: we LOVE sets! Maybe you’ll remember this wonderfully tropical two-piece set from the summer. Now we have a more weather appropriate sweater set that can easily take you from running errands to a nice dinner out without much restyling. Toss on your favorite, go-to sneakers with this look for the day, and when the evening rolls around add some tights and black booties and you’re ready! For added warmth, you could easily layer a chambray or flannel shirt underneath to add some additional color and interest to this look. If you love a sweater dress but also desire flexibility, this sweater set would be perfect. Wear these two pieces together, or combine them with your well-loved winter essentials and you are good to go! Also, quick moment of silent reverence for this velvet, embroidered bag from Johnny Was. Such a luscious and functional piece, we are beyond obsessed.

Unapologetic

Monochromatic. You may hear this word thrown around a lot when talking about an all-black outfit, or an all-neutrals look. We are here to show you the monochromatic looks don’t need to stop at neutrals! Whatever shade you are really digging this Winter can be translated into an amazing monochromatic look. To achieve this, we chose the purple/cool-toned-family and utilized different shades of purple to create a cohesive look. With the color-tone of your outfit consistent, feel free to play with textures and fabrics to add interest and elevation to your look. We hope you feel inspired to rock your favorite shade from head to toe!

Bending the Rules

Let’s be honest – the fun and creativity of fashion and self-expression can kind of get pushed aside by “rules” you hear about as your brought up. Things like: you cant wear white after Labor Day (where did that rule even come from?!), or you cant wear black and brown together, or this body shape can only wear this silhouette. These parameters probably originated with good intentions, but at this point we are ready to leave those in the past! No matter what the season, you shouldn’t feel obligated to banish some shades to the back of the closet. Pastel shades are a typically-found Spring and Summertime staple, but why not in winter? Winter white is a thing, after all! This beautiful lilac coat is the perfect winter jacket that isn’t your typical darker color shade. Everything around you may say to Go Dark this Winter, but don’t feel like you have to if those lilacs and pale yellows and creams are calling your name! Fashion rules are meant to be broken!

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?
