THE PERFECT GIFT FOR EVERY WOMAN IN YOUR LIFE

christmas-gift-guide

This year we thought instead of coming up with a generic list of gift giving ideas we would capitalize on the rich variety of women we have on our staff and have them share a few of their favorite things that would make perfect gifts for women with their unique areas of interest.

GIFT GUIDE FOR FOOD LOVERS

Lauren who joined us in 2015 has studied at the Cordon Bleu Culinary Academy and worked in the restaurant industry as a chef; once the reality of the rigors of the restaurant business set-in she decided to switch gears and leave the culinary creativity for home. She offered up her gift suggestions that even the novice home chef or food lover will be delighted to receive.

ART INSPIRED CUSTOM KNIVES:
middleton-made-knives

This item is definitely a splurge, each knife is handmade and designed not only to work well but to be a work of art in and of itself. This is a dream gift for me but I have added it to my list for Santa.

Middleton Knives

THE WINE WAND:wine-wand-christmas-giftGenerally, if you love food you love wine; this rule definitely applies to me but I hate dealing with the allergic reaction I can sometimes have to sulfites and histamines in wine, a headache and stuffy nose can really rob this indulgence of its enjoyment. The Wine Wand allows you to enjoy your favorite wine with no down-side. This amazing filter aerates the wine, absorbs histamines and removes sulfites so you can enjoy every glass with no regrets. Pure genius!

Wine Wand

HEIRLOOM CUTTING BOARD:
jacob-may-heirloom-cutting-board

This item is also on the pricey side but I feel so inspired by its beauty every time I use it, definitely worth the splurge.

Heirloom Cutting Board

MCCONNELL’S ICE CREAM PINT-OF-THE-MONTH CLUB:
mcconnells-ice-cream-pint-of-month-club-gift
Even the most experienced chef or home cook really doesn’t want to go through the effort to make ice cream, so this is the perfect treat. McConnell’s makes all of their ice cream in small batches with raw unpasteurized grass-grazed cows. All of their gourmet blends include raw, local, sustainable, organic ingredients.

Pint of The Month Club

STRAPLESS MAXI DRESS:
hale-bob-white-maxi-dressOne of the most important things when I am in the kitchen prepping food or entertaining guests is to look good and be comfortable. I love this simple strapless maxi dress by Hale Bob; I can move around easily, no worrying about flashing someone if I have to bend over to take something out of the oven and there is plenty of room if I decide to have a second helping of dessert.

Braxton Maxi Dress

SEXY LINGERIE:

adore-me-norah-bra-panty

I like getting something personal and feminine from my significant other that makes me feel like I am still his babe. Personally I love wearing sexy lingerie under everything, even jeans and a sweatshirt, It just makes me feel like a woman.

Adore Me Noreh Bra and Panties

 

GIFT GUIDE FOR THE OUTDOORSY WOMAN

Alexis is the outdoors woman of the group. When she is not working she spends her time training horses and teaching horse back riding lessons to the youth in her area. Here are a few of her favorite things.

SMITH OPTICS SERPICO SUNGLASSES:
smith-optics-serpico-sunglasses
I am always in need of new sunglasses. Being outside all the time means lots of sun protection. I have had several pairs of these glasses they fit good and they last. A definite favorite.

Serpico Sunglasses

CUSTOM COWGIRL HAT:
cowgirls-for-christ-hat

Cowgirls For Christ is a company I discovered last year at Cowboy Christmas. I got one of these last year and I absolutely love it. It provides great shade from the sun, fits great and is unique to me.

BOGS RAIN/SNOW BOOTS:
bogs-winterplaid-boots
I spend a lot of time in the mud and snow, a good pair of boots goes a long way. I love these because there are not laces so they are easy to slip on and off. They are dry, warm and cute; of course it is important to look cute even if you are cleaning out stalls.

Bogs Plaid Boots

STRETCH PONTE LEGGINGS:
stretch-ponte-leggings
Let me just say, I love leggings! They are so comfortable and easy to move around in, you can dress them up or down, they fit nicely inside of a pair of riding boots and can be worn as riding britches. The Ponte fabric on these keeps them from stretching out so they hold their shape.

Ponte Leggings

CLASSIC COMFORTABLE UNDIES:

adore-me-sportsbra-set

Okay, so I know undies for Christmas is not usually high on the list or is the classic gift from grandma no, no but when they are this cute I think any woman would be happy to receive them.

Adore Me Rosalia Bralette and Panty

GIFT GUIDE FOR THE WORKING MOM

Hannah is our working mom in the group. As all working mom’s know finding the right work life balance is challenging to say the least. Below is her wish list this year. Oh hubby, are you listening?

SEND A MEAL:
send-a-meal-caribbean-chicken
This company delivers gourmet meals right to your door. Having dinner covered every once in a while is at the top of my list for gifts I would love to receive because that means when the kiddos get home from school I could actually give them my undivided attention with homework or play a board game.

Send A Meal

PORTABLE PHOTO PRINTER:
hp-sprocket-photo-printer
I love capturing moments on my phone but never get those photos printed and they end up staying in this supposedly smartphone instead of on my wall, so a photo printer that can print image directly from the phone is the perfect solution. Not to mention when we are at Grandma and Grandpa’s house I can live them with a printed photo of the kids on the spot.

Sprocket Photo Printer

HOME THERAPY:
aveda-home-therapy
No not the psychological kind but I have to admit some days I feel like I need that as well. Some evenings I just need to wind down and I feel bad even thinking about going to the spa so this home spa retreat set is my choice, it definitely helps me keep my sanity.

Invigorating Retreat

CHARM BRACELET:
sterling-silver-charm-bracelets

I’m sentimental but not to big on crazy knick knack’s to remind me of special times with my family (dusting is not my favorite chore). Solution, I’ve always loved charm bracelets but have never felt great about purchasing one for myself because I’ve always felt that something like that should be a gift.

Charms

LEATHER EMBOSSED SWEATSHIRT:
leather-embossed-sweatershirt

I like being fashionable but with kids acticality and comfort normally come first, I love this sweatshirt because it is comfortable and the leather detail gives it that fashionable edge so I can wear it without looking frumpy.

Alma Embossed Sweatshirt
LUXURIOUS JAMMIES:

adore-me-jogger-pj

With kids around lingerie is not really practical but I still want to feel feminine and sexy in a toned down sort of way, of course. I love this Adore Me Fallon knit jogger set, it is comfortable but still makes me feel really feminine.

BOOK-OF-THE-MONTH-CLUB:
book-of-month-club
I love to read. I strongly believe that by reading regularly it keeps your mind fluid and very imaginative. Whether random articles about the fluctuation of bird populations in the Northwest of the United States, fun tips on how to be more energetic every day or a great mystery novel; you can never go wrong getting me a book. I love this book of the month club because you pick the genre and your interest and then a knew literary adventure shows up at your door once a month.

Book of The Month Club

FASHIONABLE SNUGGIE:
one-piece-jumpsuitWhat better to cover up under while you’re studying or reading than a One Piece? Especially when you are forced to sit at a desk, a One Piece is a sure way to keep your entire body warm and still have easy arm access. This is totally what I look like at my desk, LOL.

One Piece Onesie

PIZZA CUTTING PROTRACTOR:

I am sure this is an amazing two-fer that is definitely a students dream!

WACKY COFFEE MUGS:

It can also be customized to your light and music preferences for a gentle wake-up experience.

Aura Connected Alarm Clock

MASSAGE ENVY GIFT CARD:
massage-envy-gift-card
One of the bests gifts I ever received was a massage. I had never done anything to pamper myself before and this was a novelty that I always considered outside my usual time and expense. However, once I did take advantage of this amazing gift, I was completely hooked. Thereafter, I made time and set aside the finance to make this special occasion part of my routine every few months. Each time I went in for pampering I felt more and more rested. An added perk is that I got to develop a friendship with my massage therapist.

Massage Envy

RUFFLE NECK BLOUSE:
ruffle-neck-blouse-ann-taylor
There is a revival of the ruffle neck blouse and my Christmas List is not immune to its attraction. I am in love with this trend as it lends femininity to what is usually a stiff, buttoned down tradition. So this year I am wishing for Ann Taylor’s Tie Neck Ruffle.

One of our top holiday looks trending this Season is winter white from head to toe. Stay with the Season, and look for luscious ivory and off-white colors rather than Summer’s crisp white hue. For your next holiday party, we love Liberty Garden’s NEW long sleeve mixed media ivory sheath dress paired with Menbur’s matching ivory ankle strap sandals and Topshop’s “Polar Bear” faux fur ivory overcoat. We also like Hale Bob’s romantic ivory embroidered mesh lace dress or the ivory floral A line dress, flattering on “Apple” shaped figures. Or, go maxi style in Liberty Garden’s “Boho” ivory embroidered strapless dress or Hale Bob’s classic stretch lace dress with half slip. For more casual occasions, go with Hale Bob’s ivory ultra suede leggings and ivory lace sweater knit long sleeve shirt, topped with Liberty Garden’s ivory terry knit lace jacket.

Our second favorite holiday party style trending this Season is plaid. Go with a fresh, updated look for 2015 with a sleek plaid midi pencil skirt, or bundle up in a cozy plaid wool jacket. You can even accessorize with tiny plaid stud earrings or a chic plaid crossbody bag. Get a similar look as above with Topshop’s wool blend midi length skirt paired with Hale Bob’s black long sleeve embroidered top and black ankle strap heels from Steve Madden. Bundle up against Winter’s chilliest weather in Ann Taylor’s brushed wool blend plaid coat or go for holiday cheer in Trina Turk’s double breasted emerald green plaid jacket. If plaid isn’t quite your clothing style, simply accessorize with Coach’s mini red plaid crossbody bag or go for just a hint with plaid stud earrings or classic plaid watch from Burberry. Bold or subtle. Be sure to include a little plaid in your Winter wardrobe this year.

WINTER FLORALS

Not just for Spring anymore, Winter is the perfect time to let the flowers come out and play. The key to fashioning florals for Winter is to look for darker prints and longer sleeves, or accessorize your dress with heavier coats, scarves, furs and boots. For a day party with the girls, try  Hale Bob’s pink and white bold floral print maxi dress topped with a red rabbit fur vest and black booties from Via Spiga. At your next holiday office party, wow them in style with Betsey Johnson’s floral print stretch midi dress accessorized with emerald green satin T-strap sandals and a “Fall Follies” embellished flower bangle all from the designer herself. Dance the night away at your next holiday cocktail party with Hale Bob’s flattering gold sleeveless floral sequin dress paired with a matching copper sequin jacket and Topshop’s laser cut gold sandalsMaxi or mini. Sequined or satin. Add a lovely floral dress to your holiday party style this Season.

A SHORTS STORY

Even though Winter is upon us, don’t rule out your favorite pair of shorts at your next holiday party. As with florals, the key is to layer your pair of shorts with heavier knits, wools, and furs, and on extra cold days, a pair of wool tights. Get a similar “Winter White” look as pictured above with Liberty Garden’s NEW ivory lace skort paired with Hale Bob’s ivory lace sweater knit blouse classic ivory jacket from Shopbop, and a “Boho” floppy hat from Eugenia Kim. Or go with our other favorite “Mad for Plaid” look in a frosty blue plaid romper from Soft Joie layered with soft wool blend tights from Falke and trendy suede fringe booties from Sam Edelman. If lace and plaid don’t please you, take a look at our wide range of shorts in all patterns and styles at our online store Posh at Play. There’s one to suit you perfectly at your next holiday gathering.

TANGERINE IS THE NEW RED

From Elie Saab to Alice + Olivia, designers this year brought us a new shade of red – bright tangerine. What better time than the holidays to try on one of this Season’s top trending colors. Stand out from among the rest at your next office party in a Phillip Lim sleeveless silk ruffle dress or go for a more tailored look in Black Halo’s tangerine shift dress. Off set the bright color with nude ankle strap sandals from Suart Weitzman and a bead and crystal clutch by Natasha Couture, or head to toe color with tangerine suede pumps from Gianvito Rossi and a matching leather clutch from Rag and Bone.

DENIM AND LACE

Lastly, as featured in Harper’s Bazaar magazine’s top party picks, we couldn’t agree more with unexpected dynamic lace paired with denim. Suitable and chic for any holiday gathering, what better way to spruce up durable denim this Season than with an elegant, vintage Victorian lace blouse. We like this updated look with pencil skirt and lace up booties, perfect for the office party, dinner with the parents, or the annual holiday get together. Our top picks include Hale Bob’s supple satin and sultry black lace blouse or go with black stretch floral lace tunic paired with AC Collection’s faded denim pencil skirt and Alexandre Birman black lace up booties. Change up your style at another holiday occasion with a trendy midi length denim skirt from Frame Denim or go with relaxed cropped denim pants from Citizen’s of Humanity. And you could always switch things up by topping Hale Bob’s ivory or grey lace midi skirt with a tie back denim top from Nicholas. However you choose to style, try the denim and lace combo this year.

SWEATER AND BUTTON DOWN

SWEATER DRESS

Another “no brainer” classic look to return this Winter is the sweater dress. On your busiest days, simply throw on your favorite sweater dress style, pair with an oversized bag and your favorite boots, and you are ready for any occasion morning, noon, and night. We love Current/Elliot’s soft gray wool and cashmere blend dress accessorized with booties from Jeffrey Campbell,  chunky gold bangles from Kendra Scottand a black leather bag from Kate Spade. Sweep your hair into a chic topknot and segue into the evening hours by combining your sweater dress with Vince Camuto’s “Sugar Plum” suede pumps and a sparkling gold clutch from Loeffler Randall.

510285cdf24380672332c1eb01ada747

Make your sweater dress go “double duty” and combine with your favorite leather leggings or skinny jeans for a completely different look. This is also a great style for chillier Winter days when the weather is at it’s snowiest. Try pairing with Hale Bob’s black quilted faux leather or go with the mixed media leggings. Spread a bit of cheer at your next holiday party by combining with Hale Bob’s red ultra suede leggings or go “Winter Wonderland” in the soft ivory suede. If leggings aren’t your style, go with your favorite pair of skinny pants like Hudson’s black super skinny jeans or go matching with Citizen’s of Humanity’s grey stretch skinnies. At your next holiday event, arrive in the colors of the Season’s by pairing your sweater dress with Hudson’s deep red skinny jeans or go bright in Hale Bob’s green cotton sateen pants. However you choose to style, the sweater dress is definitely a versatile choice to add to your wardrobe collection this Winter.

STRIPED SWEATER AND MIDI SKIRT

From Valentino to Miu Miu to Isabel Marant, stripes are definitely one of this Season’s trendiest patterns. Echoing the iconic candy cane, what better time to try a striped sweater than during the holidays. Update the look for Winter 2015 by pairing with your favorite midi length skirt, one of this Season’s trendiest skirt lengths. We like Madewell’s cable knit striped sweater or go with Philosophy’s cozy cashmere striped sweater with star detailing, perfect on your next party or event. Who says you have to stick to black and white only? Get colorful this Season in Rag and Bone’s orange and red toned sweater or change things up and go with Tory Burch’s asymmetrical striped fitted sweater. For a perfectly polished office look, pair your striped sweater with Hale Bob’s lace midi length pencil skirt in basic black or soft grey.

e2e717c0e28bf6bd9c9ee4781ea7e3d7

Bring a bit of vintage classic 50’s style to your next holiday party in your favorite striped sweater and A-line midi skirt. Get a similar look as pictured above with Theory’s solid black A line skirt accessorized with a beige suede jacket, Vivienne Westwood’s legendary mini Yasmine black handbag, and leopard ankle strap heels from Brooks Brothers. If you are feeling especially festive and daring, go with this Season’s popular runway “mixed print” look in your striped sweater and red plaid midi skirt from Kate Spade. Work or play. Parties or errands. You are sure to look stylish and trendy in your sweater and midi skirt combo this year.

SWEATER AND OVERALLS

With the revival of 90’s fashion this Season, the return of the overalls is inevitable. What better way to try out one of this year’s trending pant styles than to pair with your favorite cozy turtleneck or chunky knit sweater. For an updated style, look for overalls in different colors and patterns such as navy, rust, or striped, and unique material such as leather, cotton, or knit. For dressier occasions, we like Topshop’s cropped faux leather overalls paired with Hale Bob’s ivory sweater knit lace top or the black faux leather long sleeve shirt and Michael Kors’ jeweled ankle strap pumps. On casual Winter days, try wide leg steel gray overall pants from YOOX topped with DKNY’s ivory chunky knit turtleneck and Rag & Bone’s cozy Shearling lined clog booties. You’ll definitely stand out from among the rest this year in your overall pant style. And, your purchase will go double duty for you as designers from Nicole Miller to Adam Lippes keep overalls trending on the runway for Spring Fashion 2016.

LOTS OF LAYERS

It’s easy to stay warm yet fashionable with this Season’s trending poncho and sweater “robe” coat options. Stay warm with ponchos made from wool and cashmere and stay fashionable with plaid, striped, and jewel toned color patterns. Choose a perfect Winter outfit with Luisa Brini’s navy plaid poncho paired with Hale Bob’s rust colored turtleneck top layered over Hudson’s Nico super skinny navy jeans tucked into knee high leather boots from Tory Burch. Opt for the striped look with MIH Jeans’ oversized reversible wool blend poncho, and segue into the evening hours by topping your favorite cocktail dress with Halston Heritage’s elegant black mock-neck ribbed poncho. Casual or dressy, be sure to add the poncho into your Winter wardrobe this year.

53705ed8e6e765453545a0d77245037c

The sweater robe coat is another favorite trending sweater find this year. Warmer than a sweater yet lighter than a coat, this jacket is a perfect layering option and also great to wear on warmer Winter days. We love Hale Bob’s teal wool sweater coat or go with the longer “robe” style in the Birdseye knit sweater coat in teal, purple, and beige from Hale Bob. Paired with your skinny jeans for daytime activities, and thrown over your favorite cocktail dress for evening, the sweater robe coat is your perfect styling option this Season.

SWEATER SCARF

One of the simplest ways to stay warm yet fashionable throughout the Winter season is to make your favorite sweater double as a chic scarf by day and warm outerwear by night. Take your favorite sweater such as Hale Bob’s fur trimmed sweatshirt and cable knit sweater or the terry knit pullover with cable knit sleeves and tie around your shoulders for perfect Winter style. As the sun sets, pull over your evening outfit to stay warm against the night air. No matter which sweater style you choose, try this simple yet chic “sweater scarf” style this Season.

Karlie-Kloss-photographed-Craig-McDean

No matter which sweater style you prefer, there are many creative ways to style your outfit this Season rather than relying on the predictable sweater and jeans combo. Pair with a midi skirt for your next holiday party. Or combine with slacks and a button down on your way to the office. Or go back in time and style under your new pair of vintage 90’s overalls. Think out of the box this Winter and try a few new fashion creations all your own. We’d love to hear your ideas on how you will style your favorite cozy sweaters this year. Comment below and give us your feedback.

FALL’S FAVORITE COLOR COMBOS

Fall colors

When we think of the changing of the Season, we all pull out our heavier fabrics and darker colors.This year, forgo the usual blacks, navys, and browns and add a little color into your Fall and Winter wardrobe. Fresh from the runways, we have the top color combinations trending across the globe for 2015. Some color combinations might seem “taboo,” but take a chance and try something new. You may surprise yourself in discovering a new and different YOU this Season. Take a look at our favorite styles below, and choose which color combos you like best.

red and orange color combos for Fall

RED AND ORANGE

Just in time for Halloween, now’s the time to bring out your favorite bright orange and coral colored clothing. Instead of playing it safe and pairing with the usual darker brown or black, be daring and combine with red, its partnering primary color. Get a similar look as featured above with Vince Camuto’s chic red cropped pants topped with Hale Bob’s orange short sleeve fringe shirt and red opened toed platform booties from Jessica Simpson. If the weather turns chilly, go with Hale Bob’s warm ultra suede coral leggings paired with the red silk button down blouseEileen Fisher’s burnt orange colored knit cardigan, and handmade dangle pumpkin earrings from DRae Designs. By combining orange and red, you’ll look smashing in Halloween’s iconic colors all Season long.

PINK AND YELLOW

All shades of pink, from blush to fuchsia, are trending for this Fall’s fashion collection. Straight off the runways of Christian Dior and Oscar de la Renta, stand out in style by pairing your favorite hue with a bright yellow. Start with our favorite trending blush pink long sleeve tee from Liberty Garden combined with Hale Bob’s bright yellow sateen skinny pants and Jimmy Choo powder pink leather kitten heels. Wow them with a pop of color in Hale Bob’s bright fuchsia pink Mayan tribal print tunic accessorized with bright pink suede ankle booties from YOOX.

pink dress with yellow accessories for Fall 2015

If yellow is not a flattering color on you, get in on this year’s trend by choosing your favorite shade of pink dress and simply accessorizing with a few key yellow pieces. We love Hale Bob’s blush pink ultra suede shift dress, suitable for any shape and figure. Complete your outfit with Pelle Moda’s NEW lemon colored strappy sandals and a Comme des Garcons canary yellow wallet inside your Marc Jacobs crossbody bag. Whichever tint you prefer and however you choose to style, be sure to include the pink and yellow color combo into your Fall fashion wardrobe this Season.

blue jacket and green skinny pants for Fall 2015

BLUE AND GREEN

Our third favorite color combination for Fall is blue and green. From designer Ulises Merida in Madrid to Hayley Elsaesser in Toronto, the runways were filled with the sea’s two favorite colors this Season. Spruce up your look at the office and shop Citizen’s of Humanity’s bright green Thompson skinny jeans or Hale Bob’s green Sateen skinny pants paired with Hale Bob’s blue washed silk jacket. Accessorize with Steve Madden’s blue leather pumps and Hayden-Hartnett’s all day green leather satchel for a perfectly trendy workday style. If you prefer more muted shades, substitute Citizen’s of Humanity’s olive green skinny jeans topped with Hale Bob’s long teal Boucle coat instead.

 green sweater with blue skinny pants

Reverse the color combo by selecting a green sweater and blue cropped pants. Perfect for lunch with the girls, a holiday party, or evening out, get a similar look as pictured above with Citizen’s of Humanity’s dark wash cropped blue jeans, Caslon’s green cashmere sweater, a Lauren Merkin leather clutch, and classic nude colored pumps from Stuart Weitzman. Carry Summer’s ocean waves and warm sea breezes with you into the cooler months of Fall by combining the colors of blue and green this Season.

sand sweater paired with an ivory pencil skirt

SAND AND CREAM

Take a break from all the brights, and go with a softer look for Fall with a sand and cream color combo. You’ll look luscious at the office in a sand colored funnel neck sweater from Banjo and Matilda paired with Hale Bob’s ivory pencil skirt and cream colored pumps from Charles David. For a night on the town or holiday party, we like the sand and cream color mixture on Liberty Garden’s mixed media high low maxi dress combined with embellished peep toe pumps from Badgley Mischka and a Tory Burch mini crossbody bag.

sand sweater and ivory leggings

On your next trip to the pumpkin patch or coffee with the girls, slip into Hale Bob’s ivory ultra suede leggings paired with Topshop’s comfy oversized knitted tunic top or go with Equipment’s NEW sand colored cashmere sweater. Switch up the color combo and shop suede leggings from Elie Tahari or try sand leather leggings from Helmut Lang. Top your outfit with Liberty Garden’s NEW ivory knit lace jacket or go with the ultra suede long sleeve sweater combined with Rebecca Minkoff’s Bowery leather tote, Sam Edelman’s knee high boots, and snug beige cashmere scarf from Halogen. Casual or dressy, show your softer side this Fall with a sand and cream color outfit.

wine and mauve color combo for Fall

WINE AND MAUVE

Finally, our last favorite color combination for Fall 2015 is wine and mauve. In “Fall Style: Top Hair, Makeup, Color and Accessory Trends,” we mentioned that “Marsala” is one of the hottest colors trending this Season so what better way to try it out than blending with a lighter tone of the same color palette. Start with Hale Bob’s wine colored ultra suede leggings paired with Currrent/Elliot’s mauve muscle tee, Hale Bob’s black stretch bolero jacket, and suede knee high boots from Chinese Laundry. Or jump on one of this year’s trendiest patterns with Lucky Brand’s cozy NEW mauve and ivory plaid shirt. If leggings aren’t quite your style, substitute Hudson’s wine colored skinny jeans or go with Hale Bob’s ultra suede mini shift dress accessorized with a cute mauve crossbody bag from Kate Spade and matching mauve faux fur coat from Donna Salyer

HOW TO ROCK FALL’S DENIM TRENDS

fall denim jeans

We all love our denim and as the weather chills with the changing Seasons. This Fall, look for new ways to rock the denim trend. From skirts to dresses to overalls, there is a new jean style to suit every fashion taste and body shape. Take a look at our favorite denim trends for 2015 and start shopping your favorites today.

wide leg denim jeans for Fall

WIDE LEG DENIM JEANS

This Season, forgo your skinnies and try Fall’s trendiest pant leg style. With the 70’s trending on the runway, you’ll feel groovy in your wide leg denim pants this year. Start with AC Collection’s “Selma” wide leg jeans or the “Rihanna” pant and pair with a chic high neck striped poncho from Zara. Complete your 70’s “Boho” look with Free People’s wool wide brimmed floppy hat, Steve Madden’s fringed booties, and a fringe bag from McFadin Handbags, as seen on celebrities Taylor Swift and Kendall Jenner. Carry the look to the office with Goldsign’s dark wash Seville wide leg jeans topped with Hale Bob’s black silk Charmeuse button down blouse with necktie and Jeffrey Campbell’s ankle booties for all day comfort and style. For evening fun, swap out your boots for chic T-strap pumps from Nine West and you are ready to dance the night away.

wide leg rolled cropped jeans

WIDE LEG CROPPED JEANS

Another favorite denim pant trend to try for Fall is the wide leg cropped jean. Easily adaptable for any occasion, with just the right styling you can make your cropped leg look go from the office to lunch with the girls to cocktail hour. Start with our favorite Citizen’s of Humanity’s relaxed “Dylan” cropped jeans and pair with your favorite comfy sweater, Sam Edelman ankle strap heels, and a cross body bag from Micheal Kors. For the office, throw on a black bolero blazer from Hale Bob, and segue into the evening hours by forgoing the sweater and adding Hale Bob’s black studded silk tank, copper sequined jacket, and dazzling crystal peep toe pumps from Lauren Lorraine. From casual to dressy, let your wide leg cropped jeans work for you this Season.

denim midi skirt and knee high boots

DENIM MIDI SKIRT

From Stella McCartney to Saint Laurent, the trendiest skirt style to hit the runways this Season is the denim midi skirt. Flattering on most figures, we like Free People’s button down A-line denim midi skirt paired with Hale Bob’s floral lace crochet sweater and leather knee high boots from Calvin Klein. For hourglass shapes, go with Rachel Comey’s high waisted denim pencil skirt with flounce topped with a form fitting “Utilitarian” chic turtleneck from Hale Bob and suede ankle booties from Michael Kors. The athletic body would do best with Anthroplogie’s front split denim surplice midi skirt and Hale Bob’s snug black lace bodysuit, accessorized with Burberry’s classic crossbody bag and Vince Camuto’s slouchy black suede booties.

Denim shirt dress

DENIM SHIRT DRESS

Short or long, loose or fitted, be sure to include one of Fall’s favorite denim styles. Dressed up or down, the denim shirt dress will carry you through every holiday occasion and Seasonal event this year. For casual affairs, we love the Gat Rimon Agata longline denim shirt dress from Asos paired with Heidi Klein’s wide brim hat and fringe ankle boots from Sam Edelman. For holiday parties or a night out on the town, go with 7 For All Mankind’s fitted dark wash denim shirtdress accessorized with trendy peep toe booties from BCBGMAXAZRIA and a glam clutch from Betsey Johnson. If long is more your style, choose the denim maxi shirt dress from Nordstrom cinched with Isabel Marant’s black leather tie belt and chunky Stuart Weitzman suede wedge booties. However you choose to style, be sure to include the denim shirt dress into your Fall wardrobe this Season.

denim overall dress for Fall

DENIM OVERALLS

From Sonia Rykiel to Moschino to Philip Lim, designers this Season are bringing back retro 90’s overalls. Look for an updated overall style on A-line dresses, wide leg culottes, and flare pants. For casual days, we like Levi’s classic relaxed fit denim overalls with “distressed” fabric for a “lived in” comfy feel. Go “boho” 70’s with Madewell’s dark wash sleek “legs for days” flare denim paired with your favorite long sleeved Tee, chunky wedge booties, and floppy hat. Or forgo the pants and try Current/Elliot’s denim overall dress topped with Liberty Garden’s powder pink long sleeve Tee or the long sleeve Menswear pullover on chillier days. Switch up your work day look and go with Shopbop’s black denim midi overall dress and classic pumps, then easily segue into the cocktail hour by layering Hale Bob’s chiffon and leather long sleeve blouse accessorized with Steve Madden’s pointy toe pumps.

denim shirt for the office

DENIM LONG SLEEVE BLOUSE

Finally, the last denim trend to get a re-boot this Season is the classic denim button down. This Season, go big and bold with Nordstrom’s oversized Chambray denim shirt. Look chic in the office with Hudson’s Nico black skinny jeans or Hale Bob’s faux leather leggings, ivory Bolero jacket, and Nicole Miller tote and leopard wedge booties.

denim blouse and knit sweater for Fall

Top your work day look with a chunky sweater, crossbody bag, and comfy sneakers for a trip to the pumpkin patch, errand day, or lunch out. We like Liberty Garden’s layered ultra suede long sleeve sweater. Accessorize with Rebecca Minkoff’s crossbody bag and Adidas’ “Superstars” and you are ready to rock the perfect “Athleisure” look.

denim blouse and gray Tee and skirt combo

The denim shirt is also a great layering piece, keeping you warm yet chic against Fall and Winter’s chilly breezes. Simply tie your denim top around your favorite outfit in the daytime sun, and pull around your shoulders as the sun sets for an instant winter “jacket”. If oversized is not quite your style, you can also try Free People’s slim fit denim shirt, Topshop’s western styled blouse, or Marc Jacobs’ studded cropped denim top.

OUTFITS TO FIT EVERY FALL OCCASION

Fall outfit

Festivals. Parties. Events. Dinners. Autumn always seems to fly by with a plethora of holiday activities. Don’t let your fashion style go with the hectic pace of the Season. Your wardrobe can work for you this year with just the right accessories and a little advanced planning. We’ve selected our favorite outfits to fit every Fall occasion or event you have planned in the coming weeks. So peruse our fashion tips below and get to planning your Winter style.

fall outfit in the pumpkin patch

A TRIP TO THE PUMPKIN PATCH

It wouldn’t be Fall without a trip to a  pumpkin patch to pick out your favorite size, shape, and color. Today’s pumpkin patches have expanded to include carnival attractions, pony rides, and fair food to keep you and the family entertained for an entire day’s outing. If you are really feeling festive, plan a trip to visit one of Fodor’s Top Pumpkin Festivals across the US or check your local listings for pumpkin patches in your area. Since weather can be uncertain at this time of the year, be sure to include a snug scarf or oversized poncho trending for Fall 2015. We love Hale Bob’s olive lace trimmed satin shift dress paired with a purple printed scarf or a cozy gray fringe poncho from Zara and your favorite low heeled ankle booties for all day comfort and style.

Sweater and floral skirt for apple picking

APPLE PICKING

After you’ve picked out your favorite pumpkins for the Season, head to an apple orchard to harvest Fall’s sweetest and most versatile snack. Check out Huffington Post’s 10 best places to go apple picking or take a look at the Old Farmer’s Almanac for tips on planting your own apple tree. Look hip while harvesting in a flowy floral print skirt and cozy knit sweater paired with suede ankle boots perfect for all day picking. We like Bergdorf Goodman’s “Haute Hippie” floral skirt topped with Liberty Garden’s oversized gray knit sweatshirt and matching gray suede booties from Sam Edelman.

fall denim outfit for apple picking

If skirts aren’t really your style, go with a pair of skinny jeans tucked into knee high boots and a simple Tee topped with a leather jacket and scarf. We like the slightly faded wash “Chelsea” skinny jeans from Joe’s Jeans combined with your favorite loose Tee, a cool camel colored leather jacket from YOOX, accessorized with waterproof red knee high boots from Hunter and a warm cashmere red plaid scarf from Nordstrom. Whichever look you choose, show off your chic Autumn style picking apples in the orchard this Season.

midi length plaid skirt and sweater for wine tasting

WINE TASTING

Looking for adventure this Fall? Consider making a trip to California, known for some of the best wineries across the US. From the Navarro Vineyards in Mendocino to Beckman Vineyards near Santa Barbara, California’s wine makers hope you will stay awhile with updated tasting rooms, tours to the vineyards, wine and dinner pairings, and personal tastings with the owners themselves. If travel isn’t ideal this Season, make your own little “tour” to your city’s top restaurant wine offerings. Either way, you’ll look chic without trying too hard in a midi length plaid skirt, soft blush pink sweater, and classy ankle strap heels. We like the A line plaid midi skirt from Anthropologie paired with Liberty Garden’s soft powder pink pleated sweater and Sam Edelman’s round toed suede ankle strap heels. You are sure to shine with comfort, confidence, and class as you sip your way through your own wine taste outing.

little black dress for a Halloween party

HALLOWEEN PARTY

Not all Halloween parties call for outlandish costumes or hours of preparation. Say “yes” to your next Halloween event with confidence knowing we have you covered if “costumes are required.” Our simple solution is the go-to “Little Black Dress” paired with your favorite party shoes, elegant jewelry, and classic masquerade mask. We love Hale Bob’s beautiful black beaded silk velvet cocktail dress or the beaded stretch lace dress, both flattering and suitable for the occasion. If you like a little more “bling,” choose Hale Bob’s black sleeveless sequined cocktail dress accessorized with Betsey Johnson’s rhinestone enhanced black lace pumps, handmade vintage pumpkin necklace, and a Gothic crystal studded masquerade mask from the Victoria Trading Company. A fourth option is to go a la “Morticia” from The Addams Family with Hale Bob’s floor length solid black jersey halter knit dress. Don’t be “scared” away by your next party invite. Take our simple dress up tips and you’ll be the “Queen of the night.”

black blouse and floral midi skirt for Fall weddings

FALL WEDDING

While Summer weddings are easy to dress for with strapless sundresses and sheer fabrics, Fall can be a little tricky due to the chillier weather. For the cooler months, look for heavier skirt fabrics and long sleeve dress sweaters to keep you warm yet fabulous. We like Hale Bob’s floral print maxi skirt paired with the black chiffon and faux leather long sleeve blouse or go with Hale Bob’s black novelty floral lace crochet sweater, accessorized with Louise et Cie classic black pumps and elegant envelope clutch from Rebecca Minkoff.

floral maxi dress and leather jacket for Fall

For a simple Fall and Winter wedding style, sweep your hair into a low classic ballerina bun and pair you favorite Summer sundress with a black leather jacket or fur stole, black chunky heels,and black clutch. Get a similar look as picture above with Hale Bob’s mint floral maxi dress, black leather jacket from Halogen, Opening Ceremony’s black suede chunky heels, and classic Saint Laurent “Monogram” clutch. However you choose to style your next wedding outfit, don’t shy away from florals for Fall.

denim and plaid for Fall

AUTUMN PICNIC

No need to stay indoors just because the weather gets chilly. Browse the web for your city’s favorite hiking and picnic areas, pack a blanket and lunch, and spend the day with Nature. The most essential fashion necessities when outdoors include comfortable hiking boots and warm layers when the temperatures drop. Start your style with Hudson’s snug “Collin” skinny jeans, ivory mixed media flyaway top from Liberty Garden, red long sleeve plaid shirt from Rails, and complete with UGG’s water resistant black ankle boots. Change up your denim style with Citizen’s of Humanity’s variety of different Autumn colors from Lunchbag to Astro turf to Poison, appropriate for the Season.

Lauren Conrad fall outfit syle

Another fun Fall picnic idea is to rent a boat and spend the day on the sea. Visit your local lake or beach front for boat options and daily rates. We love celebrity Lauren Conrad’s chic sailing style with a warm sweater paired with skinny pants and comfy knee high boots topped with a sailor’s cap. Shop her look here with black “jeggings” from Joe’s Jeans, Liberty Garden’s cozy ultra suede sweatshirt, black knee highs from Barney’s New York, and wool sailor’s cap from Gucci, borrowed from the guys.

black maxi dress for Fall occasions

Take a little time off this Season, and plan to do something you love to refresh your soul and create lasting memories with your loved ones. Whether it’s romping around in a pumpkin patch, wine tasting through the hillside, or picnicking in Nature, these are the moments we most cherish and remember. No need to forgo style and class at each one of your holiday events. Take our simple tips and remember to… be you, be fabulous, and always be feminine.

HOW TO WEAR WHITE AFTER LABOR DAY

Mango Designer Clothes Women Fashion White Outfits

Now that Labor Day has passed, is it time to put away all of our favorite white fashion outfits? No. This Season is all about re-imagining your fashion style and ingenuity. The old adage of “no whites after labor Day” is passé.  This week, we will show how to keep your Summer whites alive throughout the cooler Fall and Winter months with just the right accessories. As the weather chills, you can keep the fresh breezy bright whites of Summer by adding heavier layers and Fall accessories, and you can also begin to add Winter’s favorite off-white and ivory colors to your wardrobe collection. Scroll down for our favorite ways to incorporate white into your everyday fashion style this Season.

white skinny jeans for Fall

WHITE SKINNY JEANS

One of our favorite versatile looks for Fall Fashion is the skinny white jean. Though wide leg and boyfriend jeans are having a moment on the fashion scene, you can’t go wrong with this always trendy denim style. Update your look for 2015 by choosing a white skinny in a cropped fit. We like Joe’s Jeans high water cropped jeans in white leopard print for perfect texture and style. Pair with Liberty Garden’s short sleeve gray knit sweatshirt and layer with your favorite denim blouse. Complete your outfit with MTNG Orginials’ suede ankle boots and a trendy cross body bag from Ivanka Trump and you are ready to head into the Fall Season in style. No need to throw your white skinnies to the back of the closet. With a little creative pairing, your white jeans can rock the cooler months too.

White lounge pants street style

WHITE LOUNGE PANTS

Chillier Autumn months make us yearn for pumpkin spice lattes, cozy cashmere sweaters, and comfy knit pants. Bring your lounge pants out to the streets this fall in an “Athleisure” style all your own. For a unique and updated look, try Liberty Garden’s new distressed white lounge pants paired with your favorite Tee and chic ballerina flats. As the weather cools, top your pants with Liberty Garden’s ivory color block sweatshirt or try the gray ombre knit sweater for a dressier look. Let your white lounge pants go beyond the comfort of your home this Fall and bring them out to lunch with the girls, errands out on the town, or a trip to your favorite coffee shop.

WIDE LEG TROUSERS

Though flowy white wide leg trousers usually cry “summer style,” we’ll show you how to style your favorite pants for Fall. No need to throw them to the back of the closet as the weather cools. Simply pair with your coziest chunky knit sweater or contrast with the trending colors for Fall. Start with Hale Bob’s white studded wide leg pants and top with Hale Bob’s cozy floral lace crochet sweater or white sequined embroidered lace top for an evening out on the town. Choose a completely different look by pairing with the contrasting colors of Fall. Try Liberty Garden’s black fur shoulder long sleeve shirt or the tattered long sleeve top in Cashmere Rose, one of this Season’s trendiest colors. Don’t forget to include your white wide leg pants for perfect Fall style.

white leggings for Fall

WHITE LEGGINGS

Our final favorite white pant style to carry with you into the Fall months are leggings. On those busy Fall days when you don’t have time to think about what to wear, throw on your favorite white leggings and shine in style. Easily pair with your favorite loose white Tee and ankle booties for a carefree stylish look, or combine with your favorite silky blouse, tailored jacket and strappy heels for an evening out. We love Hale Bob’s ivory leggings with ultra suede with extra warmth during the coming months. On casual days out, top with Liberty Garden’s ivory lace back swing Tee and cozy gray ankle boots from Esseutesse. Stay warm on a cold night out in your suede leggings paired with Hale Bob’s ivory camisole, copper sequined jacket, Sam Edelman’s white open toed booties, and complete with Rebecca Minkoff’s ivory leather envelope clutch.

white lace maxi dress for Fall

WHITE LACE MAXI DRESS

No need to throw your Summer “Boho” style out the window this Fall Season. With the perfect Fall accessories, you can keep your Summer “chill” and still stay stylish for the cooler months ahead. Pair your favorite white lace dresses so perfect for the beach with chunkier ankle boots, knee high boots, or trendy classic oxfords accessorized with a warmer black leather jacket or your favorite cozy suede fringe jacket. If you missed out on Summer’s “Boho” style, get started today with Hale Bob’s sleeveless long lace dress with half slip. Complete your Fall look by adding a black leather fringe jacket from Free People, black fringe ankle booties from Steve Madden, and a matching black fringe cross body bag NEW from Ash. For a night out on the town, accessorize your lace dress with Hale Bob’s white washed silk jacket, white lace booties from Lauren Lorraine, and a Rebecca Minkoff evening clutch. Boho or Classic. Casual or dressy. Don’t exclude the white lace dress from your Fall Fashion wardrobe this year.

WHITE MAXI SKIRT

Our final favorite Summer trend you don’t have to let go of for Fall is the white maxi skirt. A perfect Summer staple, segue into cooler weather by adding a cozy sweater, or wool jacket, and accessorizing with warm winter knee high boots or ankle booties. Pull out Hale Bob’s white studded satin maxi skirt from Summer and pair with your favorite fitted black tee, black bolero jacket from Hale Bob, and black fringe ankle booties from Sam Edelman for perfect workplace style. Or sweep your hair into a messy topknot and go “Athleisure” with Liberty Garden’s ivory ultra suede long sleeve shirt and your favorite comfy white sneakers.

90’s STYLE REVISITED

90's style plaid fashion campaign

Wondering why the 90’s are suddenly trending again? Fashion’s hottest creative designers behind Gucci, Stella McCartney, Raf Simons and others lived their young adult lives throughout the iconic decade and are now reviving their favorite nostalgic styles on the Runways. Look for a nod to the slip dress, Doc Marten’s, denim overalls, and beanie hats for Fall 2015. Designers this Season have taken the 90’s iconic fashions and trends, and have updated the looks to fit today’s modern woman. So crank up some NSYNC and start shopping this year’s latest fashion craze.

90's floral maxi skirt

FLORAL MAXI SKIRT

Channel a little Winona Ryder in “Reality Bites” with an flowy floral maxi skirt this Fall. Not only perfect paired with a plain white Tee and sandals, the floral maxi also easily segues into the cooler months of the Season. We love Liberty Garden’s white floral printed maxi skirt paired with an ivory lace jersey tank and Vince Camuto black maxi cardigan. Update the iconic 90’s Doc Martens style with this year’s trendy “Indica” Mary Jane shoe and complete your look with rag & bone’s NEW wool brim hat. You are ready to rock the streets in your updated 90’s style fashion.

baggy denim jeans and crop top with plaid shirt

BAGGY JEANS

Push your skinnies and your boot cuts to the back and make way for this Fall’s most popular denim trend- baggy jeans. Fashion is easy with the baggy jean. Grab a pair out of your brother or husband’s closet, roll the cuffs, throw on a Tee and you are ready to go. Or shop a pair of your favorite “boyfriend” jeans in cropped, distressed, or low rise. We love AC Collection’s Mystique boyfriend jeans or go for a darker wash with the Frenzy denim. If you prefer the cropped style, we love Citizen’s of Humanity’s dark wash relaxed cropped jeans paired with Hale Bob’s black leather cami and Calvin Klein’s ankle strap heels or your favorite cozy booties. Throw on Saint Laurent’s NEW black beaded beanie, tie on your favorite flannel, and your updated 90’s look is complete.

90's flannel with leggings

LEGGINGS & PLAID SHIRT

Nothing says “90’s” more than the classic flannel shirt. Back in the day, the flannel shirt was paired with everything from shorts to jeans to slip dresses to workout wear. This Season, update the 90’s flannel by combining with your favorite sleek leggings or “jeggings,” slouchy Tee, and flat ankle boots. Accessorize with this Season’s most popular cross body bag, cozy wool beanie, and your look is complete. Try Hale Bob’s black stretch Ponte leggings or opt for trendy Joe’s Jeans’ “jeggings,” a cross between jeans and leggings. Add a comfy ivory Tee from Liberty Garden, a matching gray scarf and beanie from Halogen, and a Vince Camuto cross body bag for a perfect updated casual 90’s style.

90's floral dress

BABYDOLL DRESS

One of the most popular dress silhouettes of the 90’s was the “Babydoll” dress, characterized by a fitted empire bodice and a dropped waistline. Popular T.V. shows like “Friends” and “Beverly Hills 90210” made this frock famous for street wear fashion. Flashback a few decades in your own dress, updated for 2015. We love Hale Bob’s long sleeve Chevron print shift dress or go with a similar dropped waist style in Hale Bob’s silk Charmeuse shirt dress. Go true 90’s style and pair with over-the-knee stocking socks and Mary Jane’s or update your look with trendy knee high boots from Guess and a floppy hat from Calvin Klein as featured above. Whichever way you choose to style your look, add the comfy yet always fashionable Babydoll dress to your wardrobe collection this Fall.

90's jean overalls

DENIM OVERALLS

From Sonia Rykiel to Rebecca Minkoff, the denim overall is making a huge comeback for 2015. Designers this Season are re-imagining the overall look by adding a skinny jean fit or a cropped leg or a distressed wear. You can fit overalls into your everyday wardrobe by pairing with a tank and your favorite sneakers, or glam it up with your favorite heels and clutch. We like the slim fit faded Blank denim overalls from Shopbop accessorized with your favorite long sleeved blouse, silver ankle strap heels from Fendi and Vince Camuto colorblock envelope clutch. If you are looking for a new denim look this Fall, include overalls into your wardrobe this year.

cable knit sweater and plaid skirt

CABLE KNIT SWEATER AND PLAID SKIRT

Get cozy this Fall in a chunky cable knit sweater and chic plaid skirt a la “Cher” from 1995’s Clueless. Update the look for 2015 by accessorizing with your favorite Fall items such as ankle boots and a floppy hat. You can even go “Athleisure” with the style in your favorite sneakers and baseball cap. Or dress it up for a night on the town with your “go to” evening heels and sequined clutch. We love Liberty Garden’s “mixed media” fur trimmed cable knit sweater paired with a Fred Perry A-line plaid skirt from Asos and gray ankle booties from Free People. Go with a longer skirt option for the workplace in Brooks Brothers’ Signature plaid midi skirt, a trending length for Fall 2015.

90's style midi skirt and slouchy sweater

MIDI SKIRT

Our final top choice for 90’s style revisited is the midi length skirt. From designer Amy Smilovic for Tibi to Michael Kors to Dolce & Gabbana, Fall’s Fashion Runways were filled with the midi skirt and dress length style. You can choose from patterned or solid, A-line or pencil, cotton or wool, mixed media or plain. There are no limits to how you can style the midi skirt. We love Liberty Garden’s NEW black lace midi skirt paired perfectly with the ivory ultra suede tank and suede ankle booties from Ivanka Trump. Or cozy up to Liberty Garden’s gray ombre knit sweater on chillier Autumn days. For a night on the town, dress up your midi skirt with Hale Bob’s black lace bodysuit, Loeffler Randall’s black lace-up sandals, and Whiting & Davis’ NEW black crystal clutch. Your midi skirt can go with you wherever your activities take you this Season.

90's grunge street wearBefore Google and the iPhone craze, the 90’s were characterized by individuality, spontaneity, and the freedom of expressing yourself. It was cool to peruse thrift stores in search of the perfect flannel. Or head to the mall for a new pair of Doc Martens. Though media was a part of daily life, people were not as “glued” to technology as we are today. So step back in time this Season, and take the time to put away your phone and have lunch with the girls. Go for a walk in the park on your next lunch break instead of staring at the walls of your gym. Take the time to enjoy the world, talk not text, be yourself, and live life. Remember our motto here at Posh at Play: Be You, Be fabulous, and always be Feminine.

WINTER CHIC

What’s not to love about winter? It’s time to brave the frosty cold outside for fun with family and friends, and then defrost inside by the crackling fireplace with a cup of hot cider.

Every year around this time I look forward to pulling out my favorite items which typically are my wool sweater coat, black cardigan, or… even my black fur vest!
