Beyond the Bell Curve

This sweatshirt, friends. THIS. SWEATSHIRT. I can’t recall a time that a black sweatshirt triggered such feelings of joy and intrigue than when I borrowed (did not steal) my sister’s black NKOTB sweatshirt from her drawer. This bell-sleeved, cropped sweatshirt from Levi’s is about a hundred times softer and must less previously owned (as in, not at all) than my sister’s sweatshirt. It conjures up effortless magic! We kept this look overall in a neutral & monochromatic pallet to help fully embody the magic elements of the sweatshirt. My heart actually skipped a beat as I imagined styling this piece under a pair of overalls and sneakers, so let me just take a deep breath here. The midi-length skirt pairs sweetly with this stripped mules from Intentionally Blank. If a mule is a shape that you love (and we’re betting you do!) be sure to give this new shape a try. It has a round toe and doesn’t come up as high on the sides as most mules, giving an overall softer look. It’s got the tiniest heal which is perfect for any event. So whether you’re “hangin’ tough” (had to bring the NKOTB reference back around) or laying low, we love everything about this look for you.

Traffic People and their brand, designs, fits, and silhouettes never fail to absolutely blow us away. We appreciate how they effortlessly throw an edgy spin on an otherwise semi-predictable classic. Take the LBD (little black dress) for example. Classic and timeless. You can embody all the wonderful qualities of the LBD by incorporating an all-black color palette with the added interest of this beautiful bow detail and leather midi skirt. Leave it to Traffic People to challenge your style staples while still being completely approachable and chic. And what goes better with black head-to-toe than gold statement jewelry? When your outfit is all the same color or shade, you can really add some dimension with your accessories. Alexandra Scarlett utilizes shapes, patterns, and angles beautifully in her pieces which makes them stand-out. From the office to a night out – these elevate your look for any occasion.
