TAX RETURN SPLURGES WE LOVE

 

3d-abstract_hdwallpaper_woman-in-a-red-dress-shopping-in-nyc_32238By the time you are reading this, you’ll know how much money Uncle Sam will be rewarding you this Tax Season. Here’s hoping that you get a great return on last year’s hard work. Now, what to do with your extra money? Why not reward yourself with a little fashion splurge. Hey- you earned it! All of us have those key “wish list” items we secretly dream of buying someday, but can’t seem to budget in. Well now you don’t have to wait. Treat yourself to some of our favorite fashion finds we are loving this Spring.

GUCCI LOAFERS

What’s not to love about a shoe that can go from casual to formal, from the office to date night, and keep you comfortable all day long. We are loving Gucci’s black leather loafer NEW for Spring 2016. With a classic round toe and low heel, these are a perfect “shoe staple” that will be fashionable for quite some time. Pair with your favorite skinny jeans and Tee on casual days out. Top your look with Hale Bob’s black Bolero jacket for the office, and switch out your jeans for one of Hale Bob’s mini, midi, or maxi skirts in every print and style. Morning, noon, and night, you can’t go wrong with this classic foot fashion.

VICTORIA BECKHAM’S RAINBOW SUNGLASSES

The aviators get an update this Season with Victoria Beckham’s throwback 70’s rainbow glasses. Even if “Boho chic” is not really your style, you can get in on this year’s hottest trend with these groovy sunnies. We like them paired with Hale Bob’s tribal print crepe de chine shorts topped with a cool white embroidered cotton tank as pictured above. Accessorize with Free People’s rustic leather fedora and fringe crossbody for this Season’s “Boho chic” look, or fashion with Ralph Lauren’s color blocked espadrilles and raffia tote on relaxing days at the pool or beach. Sun up to sun down, walk the streets feeling like like your favorite “celeb” this Spring.

ALEXANDER WANG’S CROPPED DENIM

Our third favorite fashion splurge we are dying to try this Spring is Alexander Wang’s cropped denim, updated for 2016 with a slight flare. Another throwback to the 70’s, this jean silhouette fits and flatters any figure, with a fitted waistline to accentuate a tiny middle and wide leg cuffs to balance out shoulders and hips. We suggest pairing your pants with a snug top and minimal accessories to prevent a “bulky,” heavy appearance. We like Liberty Garden’s color blocked mixed media tank with suede detailing to fit and flatter the waistline. Dress things up a bit by switching into Hale Bob’s black laser cut cami, Vince Camuto’s lace up heels, and Betsey Johnson’s whimsical glitter gold rose bangle for a night out on the town. On casual days out, simply throw on Alice + Olivia’s short sleeved fitted tee, adidas’ “Superstar” sneakers, and bright oversized tote from Mm6 Maison Margiela for a perfectly “undone” Athleisure style.

COURREGUES’ LEATHER JACKET

Need a cover up to keep warm? You’ll stay in style year round with new label Courregues’ signature patent leather zip front jacket. Perfect to pair with jeans, leggings, shorts, skirts, and dresses, this versatile wrap will never go out of style and will keep you styling’ every Season of the year. For Springtime, accessorize your jacket over Citizen’s of Humanity’s black skinnies during the day, Hale Bob’s black ultra suede leggings on your next workout session, and Hale Bob’s sleeveless floral knit maxi dress for nighttime activities or your next garden party. The black leather jacket is perfect over Liberty Garden’s lace romper at this Summer’s outdoor music and arts festivals, and simply trade out your lightweight clothing for Liberty Garden’s cozy fur trimmed cable knit sweater as we segue into the cooler autumn and winter months. From Spring to Fall, casual to dressy, daytime to nighttime, this is one jacket option we’re definitely including into our wardrobe collection this year.

LIBERTY GARDEN’S OFF THE SHOULDER ROMPER

As mentioned above, the off the shoulder white lace romper is the perfect addition to your Spring and Summer wardrobe collection. From Dolce and Gabbana to Missoni, this shorts set dominated Spring 2016’s runways. An all-in-one outfit, the romper looks great on all body types and keeps you looking stylish without trying too hard. Start with our favorite white lace romper from Liberty Garden and pair with Benoit Missolin’s straw hat and matching tote from Michael Kors for an easy, breezy daytime Spring and Summer look. Segue into the evening hours by accessorizing your romper with Sam Edelman’s nude lace up heels to accentuate a long leg line and a dainty crystal mesh clutch from Glint. Daytime to nighttime, you are sure to turn heads as you strut your lace romper in style.

VETEMENTS’ HOODIE DRESS

Our final “wish list” fashion of choice this Spring is Vetements’ hoodie sweatshirt dress. Providing comfort and style, this versatile dress combines the casual sweatshirt top with a skirt for an updated take on “sweats” day. Get this model’s high fashion look by combining your dress over Hudson’s distressed boyfriend jeans, Topshop’s ankle booties, and oversized “Hollywood” sunnies from Karen Walker. As the weather warms, forgo the jeans and switch out your boots for Marc Fisher’s comfy wedge sandals or treat your feet to vegan ballerina flats from Tom’s . Got a dinner party planned this weekend? Your hoodie dress will be just perfect cinched with an embellished belt from BCBGMAXAZRIA and paired with embellished block heeled lace up sandals from Jeffrey Campbell or chunky leather sandals from Proenza Schouler. Perfect for any event this Spring, you don’t have to be a college student to rock the “hoodie” in style.

Holli Rogers of Net a Porter

TRENDING SPRING PRINTS AND STYLES YOU’LL WEAR ALL SEASON

Rene-Caovilla-SS14-1

With the clocks moving forward this weekend, Spring has finally sprung. With longer days and warmer nights, it’s time to start filling our closets with the Season’s favorite patterns, silhouettes, and styles. From off the shoulder, to slouchy pants, to groovy tie dye, designers this year focused on a laid back approach to beauty. Take a look at our top favorite looks on the runways and we’ll show you how you can incorporate the trends now and later into your wardrobe.

OFF THE SHOULDER BLOUSE

From Rebecca Minkoff to Stella McCartney to Michael Kors, the “cold shoulder” is one of the top trends to revive on the runways this Season. We love the flowy “Boho” casual yet put together off the shoulder silhouette. This Season, look for blouses, dresses, crop tops, and even vests with the cut out style. Ease into Spring with Hale Bob’s long sleeve floral silk blouse combined with your favorite skinny jeans or leggings. Go classic by accessorizing with wedge sandals or ankle booties and a reversible oversized tote from Urban Outfitters. Or go “Boho” chic with a floppy straw hat from Free People, a suede trimmed lace kimono from Liberty Garden, and fringe booties from JSlides . As the weather warms, try a black Chevron knit dress with trending gladiator sandals from Sam Edelman or take your bright pink tribal print blouse to the beach paired with your favorite swimsuit. Classic or Boho. Cool or warm. Curvy or boy shaped. The off the shoulder look fits every style, every climate, and every shape this Spring.

STATEMENT SLEEVES

Seen at the Milly Spring 2016 Spring runway shows, another blouse shape we love is the statement sleeve. From bell shaped, to flare, to flounce, add a little glamour to your style this Season. Wow them at work in Hale Bob’s black embroidered lace blouse paired with printed crepe de chine wide leg pants and sturdy black pumps from Charles David for all day wear. Or, go trendy with this year’s “Boho” chic craze and combine your top with Citizen’s of Humanity’s cropped rolled skinny jeans, suede booties from Vince Camuto, and a fringe crossbody from White House Black Market . Dazzle and delight on your next evening out with Hale Bob’s beaded cuff silk blouse accessorized with Current/Elliot’s sleek black leather leggings, bright pink clutch and embellished pumps from Betsey Johnson. A few of our other favorite looks we love are Hale Bob’s cherry red silk double georgette long sleeve dress and shimmy the night away in a black jeweled silk tunic cocktail dress. Make a statement without saying a word this Season in your own flouncy sleeved outfit.

TIE DYE PRINT

Get groovy! A throwback to 70’s fashion continues for Spring 2016. With designers like AltuzarraRachel Comey, and Raquel Allegra showing tie dye prints on everything from blouses to pants to cocktail dresses, 2016 is the time to tap into your inner “hippie” and vibe with the times. Go full on “Boho” in Hale Bob’s luscious mint green tie dye maxi dress paired with all the essential accessories: floppy hat, gladiator sandals, fringe bag, and crochet shawl. Or, choose the blue jersey knit maxi skirt topped with a comfy basic white tee and Urban Outfitters’ flat sandals for warm weather and Lucky Brand’s leather ankle booties for chiller days. You can also take this look to the office with Hale Bob’s quartz rose and serenity blue tie dye shirt dress, Pantone’s colors of the year. Simply switch out your conservative work heels for Loeffler Randall’s NEW ankle strap sandals and you are ready to hit the nightlife in style. From the workplace to the playground, you are sure to keep it groovin’ in the 70’s favorite print pattern.

SUBTLE FLORALS

We know, we know….”florals for Spring, groundbreaking.” But unlike last Spring’s bold flower pattern, designers this year are bringing a softer, more muted floral touch. Look for smaller shapes, delicate designs, and “watercolor” imaging. We like Hale Bob’s faux wrap sheath dress in soft pastels paired with Michael Kors’ “flex” pumps for the office and Lauren Lorraine’s embellished T-strap sandals for after work fun. We also like Hale Bob’s blush pink shift dress with a subtle floral pattern, perfect for any Springtime occasion. Looking for something a little more casual? Go with the floral pattern black cami paired with a matching ivory lace skort from Liberty Garden, comfy sneakers from NEW designer Ellen DeGeneres, and a straw hat from Eugenia Kim. Lastly, one of our favorites to suit any style, occasion, or figure, is Hale Bob’s flowy silk chiffon long sleeve blouse. Combine your delicate top with anything from ultra suede leggings to a white embroidered mini skirt to cropped boyfriend jeans from Citizen’s of Humanity. Get in touch with your feminine side this Spring, and add a hint of floral to your closet.

RUFFLES

Another favorite “feminine” style to walk down the runways this Season are ruffles everywhere. From Alexander McQueen’s delicate lace maxi skirts, to Balmain’s chiffon tops, to Giambattista’s retro dresses designers this year are re-inventing an age old style from decades ago. Spread a little romance this Spring, and shop Hale Bob’s flouncy ruffled floral sun dress paired with T-strap flat sandals from Diane von Furstenberg for everyday and the leather cage heels from Schutz for hot summer nights. Or put a little salsa in your step in Hale Bob’s black silk ruffled sleeveless mid length dress. If the climate is still a bit chilly, you can warm up by combining your dress with a cozy ivory fur jacket from Hale Bob and closed toed pumps from Kendall+Kylie. Ruffles aren’t just reserved for dresses. Slip into Hale Bob’s cool blue frilly washed silk top or the ruffled textured lace blouse accessorized with this Season’s trendy wide leg pants from AC Collection or black cotton eyelet shorts when the weather warms.

SLOUCHY PANTS

We finish with our favorite pants silhouette for Spring- the slouchy trousers. With designers taking a more casual and “no fuss” approach to Spring 2016 fashion, the slouchy pant is a perfect choice to keep you stylin’ all Season long. For casual days around the house or the perfect “athleisure” look, pair Liberty Garden’s grey embroidered terry lounge pants with Liberty Garden’s ivory swing back tee or grey draping sweatshirt on chillier Spring days. For the office or dressier occasions, switch to Hale Bob’s taupe or black satin cropped pants topped with a black laser cut cami, ivory pleated swing tank, or add a splash of color in a pink printed halter top. Accessorize your look with a taupe “military” jacket or black Bolero coat on cooler Spring days and nights. Wherever you choose to wear your slouchy pants, you will always appear casual, cool, confident, and completely in style.

Joie-Spring-Summer-2016-Campaign04

GREASE IS THE WORD: FLASHBACK TO FIFTIES STYLE

JC-CAMPAIGN-LANDSCAPE1-e1447860261250

Grease is STILL the word. Even if you didn’t catch FOX’s “Grease Live” last Sunday, you can still be inspired by one of this Season’s most popular throwback trends. From Louis Vitton’s “pink ladies” jackets to Marc Jacobs’ varsity-inspired coats to Oscar de la Renta’s pastel A-line skirts, designers this year are paying homage to the time period beloved by many. So what are you waiting for? Get “hopelessly devoted” to your favorite 50’s style trends updated for a new generation while still maintaining the nostalgia of the time period. Turn on the movie soundtrack or pop in a little Elvis, peruse our favorite finds, and pick one or all that’ll keep you “summer lovin'” all year long.

T-BIRDS LEATHER

If you have a little rebel in you, then you will relate to the story’s favorite “bad boy” Danny Zucko and the T-Bird gang. The great thing about this look is it’s simple yet sophisticated, and can easily be dressed up or down with the right accessories. Start with a pair of black faux leather leggings from Hale Bob, your favorite comfy white Tee, and a cool black leather biker jacket from Topshop. On casual days, pair your look with classic Converse sneakers updated for 2016 with a wedge heel high top or simple velvet ballerina flats from Sam Edelman. For more formal events, accessorize your outfit with Vince Camuto’s asymmetrical heeled booties or Michael Kors’ kitten heel pumps, a popular style from the 1950’s. Complete your silhouette with retro cat eye sunglasses from BCBGMAXAZRIA and a box purse from Heather Offord. You could also update the look by substituting the predictable leather jacket with Liberty Garden’s faux leather long sleeve shirt with ruffles for a feminine touch. Everyday or special occasion, you can’t go wrong with a black leather outfit this Spring.

PINK LADIES’ DENIM & LEATHER

Strut your style with ease this Season in a chic pairing of denim and leather a la the Pink Ladies. Grab the 50’s favorite pant silhouette and accessorize with a simple Tee, leather jacket, and cute ballerina flats. We like the dark blue super skinny jeans from Hudson or the Thompson cropped skinny jeans from Citizen’s of Humanity. If you prefer color, go with Citizen of Humanity’s sea green skinnies, Hudson Jeans’ marsala or white leopard from Joe’s Jeans. No matter which color combo you choose, complete your look with Liberty Garden’s comfy loose ivory T shirt, Michael Kors’ black leather jacket, and leopard print ballerina flats from Salvatore Ferragamo. You can still wear your skinnies to dressier events by pairing with Liberty Garden’s tailored ivory button down and swapping the flats for classic black pumps from French Connection or Vince Camuto’s “Frenchie” ankle strap sandals. “Rule the school” this Spring in your very own chic Pink Ladies style.

SANDY’S A LINE SILHOUETTE

With Springtime nearly upon us, now is the perfect time to try out this year’s pretty pastel pinks, blues, yellows, and greens. And what better way to usher in the Season than with a vintage A line shaped skirt or dress just like good girl Sandy. Update the 50’s styled skirt by adding trendy modern accessories like chunky booties or wedge heels and a crop top or fitted bodysuit. Segue from chilly winter into Spring’s warmth in Vince Camuto’s sea green faux suede A line skirt paired with a frilly leopard print top from Nanette Lepore or sleek black lace bodysuit from Hale Bob. Curl your locks and accessorize with ankle strap pumps NEW from the Kendall + Kylie collection, an elegant string of pearls from MyHabit, a studded leather clutch from Diane von Furstenberg and you are ready to hit the drive-in. For more formal affairs, sweep your hair into a high pony and don Hale Bob’s bright blue A line  or stick to basic black in the sleeveless color block dress topped with Free People’s cozy faux fur stole. “Hand jive” your way through the upcoming Season in a flattering A line silhouette perfect for any body type.

RIZZO’S HIGH WAISTED SHORT SHORTS

If girly Sandy isn’t quite you, play with the boys this Spring in high waisted short shorts just like bad girl Rizzo. No matter what body shape you have, the high waisted silhouette is perfect for slimming your waistline, lengthening your legs, and providing the perfect combination of cool yet classy. Start with AC Collection’s deep blue high waisted stretch denim shorts paired with Lulu’s teal backless sweater or a black crochet silk cotton halter from Hale Bob for sunnier Spring days. Finish off your vintage 50’s look with a colorful scarf tied around your hair, Jimmy Choo crochet wedges, and a swipe of red lipstick from MAC. Carry your short shorts into the evening hours by topping with a frilly faux leather tank from Liberty Garden, cherry red peep toes pumps from Jessica Simpson, and Hale Bob’s blue rayon knit cardigan if it turns chilly. Casual or dressy, you’ll stay cool and slender in your own pair of high waisted shorts this Season.

VARSITY JACKETS

We can’t leave out the athletic teams that Danny joins in order to impress his love Sandy. From G-Star RAW to Marc Jacobs, designers are bringing back the 1950’s iconic coat for Spring and Summer 2016. Jump on the style trend this Season and pair with anything from your black leggings on the way to the gym to your denim mini to your maxi skirt for a evening on the town. Start with Opening Ceremony’s black and white varsity style jacket  over Hale Bob’s black cargo leggings , Liberty Garden’s gray draping sweatshirt, and Nike’s NEW running sneaker. Swap your leggings and shoes for a denim mini from Mother  or AC Collection’s faded black pencil skirt and Topshop’s NEW black booties for lunch with the girls. Segue into the evening hours by accessorizing your varsity jacket with a blouse, Hale Bob’s black studded high low skirt, and ankle strap “Patti” heels from Sam Edelman. This season take Principal McGee’s advice:  “if you can’t be an athlete, be an athletic supporter.”

DENIM JEANS TO FIT YOUR FIGURE

denim jean fashion to fit your figure

The denim jean has always been Fall and Winter’s “go to” pant style. With this Season’s many different styles, lengths, and shapes, which jean fashion looks best on you? First, determine your body shape. Are you petite or tall? Curvy or athletic? Whilst there is no standard silhouette, you can choose a denim style that will fit and flatter your figure, accentuating your strengths and hiding your flaws to present the perfect you. We here at Posh at Play want you to start every day looking and feeling your best. So take a look at our top denim choices for each figure and start shopping your body shape’s style.

skinny jeans for petite figures

SKINNIES FOR PETITE FRAMES

Lengthen your legs and strut your style in a pair of skinnies for petite figures. Since shorter frames can sometimes appear stocky with too much embellishment, sleek skinny jeans will streamline your look. Go simple with Hudson’s Collin skinny jeans paired with your favorite button down blouse and sweater. Lengthen your line with Vince Camuto’s ankle strap pumps in “Sugar Plum” suede and a chic “blush” handbag from Kate Spade. Carry your skinnies into the evening hours with Hudson’s Nico skinny jeans topped with Hale Bob’s red silk button down and black leather sandals from Sam Edelman for perfect holiday style. Or go for a bit of Seasonal color in Hudson’s “Bordeaux” skinny jeans, a trending color this year. For petite figures, the full length skinny jean is your best “go to” denim look.

cropped wide leg jeans for boyish figures

CROPPED WIDE LEG FOR BOYISH FIGURES

Characterized by narrow waist and hips, boyish figures look great in this Season’s newest denim trend. The slouchy wide leg cropped jeans hang nicely on bodies that have straight hips and thighs, emphasizing your boyish shape. We like Citizen’s of Humanity’s relaxed Dylan cropped jeans paired with Liberty Garden’s cropped menswear sweater and Topshop’s bright red suede buckle booties. For a more streamlined look, we also like Rachel Comey’s high waisted light wash wide leg denim jeans paired with Hale Bob’s sleek Utilitarian turtleneck in jade or black and Michael Kors’ chic crossbody bag. Segue into the evening hours by accessorizing your jeans with Hale Bob’s sleek black lace bodysuit and bright red clutch from Hobo. However you choose to accessorize, boyish frames be sure to include this year’s trendy wide leg cropped style into your wardrobe collection.

bootcut jeans for tall figures

BOOTCUT JEANS FOR TALL FIGURES

For those lucky gals blessed with long limbs, a bootcut shape is your best bet. Snug through the hips and thighs, and opening into a bell shaped bottom, this jean style fits and flatters your lovely long silhouette. We love Hudson’s Signature bootcut jeans with a mid rise waistline perfect for any occasion. You will also love Hudson’s Beth Baby bootcut jeans as well with extra long cuffs. Pair your look with any of Hale Bob’s solid or printed sheer blouses, from the bright yellow floral print to the baby blue silk chiffon or the black satin lace to the ivory silk Charmeuse for dressier occasions.

rolled cropped jeans for tall women

Tall girls also have the option of rolling jean cuffs for a trendy modern look. The shorter cuffs extend the line and make legs look even longer. So don’t worry if you can’t find long enough jeans to fit your body. Simply roll the cuffs of your favorite pair of denim, throw on a classic trench from Ann Taylor, accessorize with a snug striped cashmere sweater from Burberry and step out in style this Winter.

flare jeans for curvy figures

FLARE JEANS FOR CURVY FIGURES

Curvy figures have no fear. We have the perfect jean cut to accentuate and flatter your feminine frame. Flare jeans with an open cuff below help balance out wider hips and thighs and are the perfect compliment to your physic. Go with this Season’s trendy “Boho” look in Hudson’s light wash Ferris flap pocket flare paired with Free People’s lace flyaway tunic or  Liberty Garden’s black lace babydoll shift dress. Complete your look with one of Hale Bob’s colorful rabbit fur vests, leather clogs from Steve Madden, Free People’s fringe Hobo bag, and rag & bone’s floppy brim fedora. If “Boho” isn’t quite your style, top your flares with Liberty Garden’s trendy blush pink long sleeve Tee and sneakers or go with the cozy fur trimmed cable knit sweater and Alfani’s fur lined ankle booties on chilly Winter nights.

wide leg jean style

WIDE LEG JEANS FOR ANY FIGURE

Lastly, our favorite denim trend this Season that fits and flatters any figure is the wide leg jean. Roomy enough to accommodate every waistline and versatile for any occasion, be sure to include this pant into your wardrobe collection for Winter. We love AC Collection’s variety of wide leg styles paired perfectly with one of Hale Bob’s silk chiffon blouses and UGG’s water resistant fur trimmed wedge booties for everyday style. Carry your look to the office and top with Hale Bob’s black Bolero jacket and black pumps from Charles David. For perfect holiday style, accessorize your wide leg jeans with Ralph Lauren’s Christmas red turtleneck sweater, Kate Spade’s pointy toe pump, and a vintage Christmas tree handbag from Boston Inventory.

denim jean style winter 2015

Petite or Tall. Curvy or boyish. Instead of fighting it, let your body work for you this Season.  Highlight your unique silhouette and don’t be afraid to let the real YOU shine bright this Season.

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.

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 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

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 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

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 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 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.

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.

Cool festival style “Boho” fringe is still trending into the Fall season. Forgo summer’s sheer lace and gladiators and update the look for the cooler months with suede, leather, and knee high boots. Start with Hale Bob’s orange short sleeve shirt with fringe paired with Joe’s Jeans’ black jeggings and Ralph Lauren’s fringe suede knee high boots. Update your outerwear with a chic black leather fringe jacket from Rebecca Minkoff for those crisp, chilly Fall days and accessorize with your fringe handbag and “Boho” floppy hat from summer.

RETRO 70’s

With Boho fringe still trending, retro 70’s style is grooving its way into the Fall and Winter Season. Look for wide leg jeans, flare overalls, peasant blouses, bold floral patterns and long sleeve maxi dresses. Get a similar “retro” look as pictured above at New York Fashion Week with Topshop’s floral print overalls paired with a sleek crop top from Blue Life and “70’s style” clogs from Steve Madden. We also like AC Collection’s wide leg jeans in a variety of washes to suit your “retro” style. Pair the dark blue color with Hale Bob’s ivory “peasant” style silk chiffon blouse for casual days out, the gray hue with Hale Bob’s red silk button down for the office and the sparkle tint with Hale Bob’s black satin blouse with lace detailing for cocktail hour.

CROPPED WIDE LEG

Following the trend of retro 70’s, the wide leg pant gets an update this Season with a shorter, cropped style. Spotted all over the streets of New York for Fashion Week, the wide leg cropped pant is one of this Fall’s trendiest fashion statements. From daytime to evening, let your cropped pant style work for you this year. Start with Citizen’s of Humanity’s dark wash wide leg cropped denim jeans and pair with your favorite white Tee and sneakers for an everyday “Athleisure” look. Segue into the evening hours by accessorizing your denim with Liberty Garden’s NEW black long sleeve mesh blouse and gold sparkle heels from Betsey Johnson. You can create your own cropped style by rolling the cuffs of any of your favorite wide leg pants in your closet for a new and updated silhouette this Fall. Go ahead and give it a try.

patterned maxi dress

MAXI DRESS

A third “retro” look continuing into the cooler months of Autumn is the flowy maxi dress. With careful styling and just the right accessories, you can continue wearing your favorite Summer maxi dress style throughout Fall and Winter. Forgo the flat sandals and straw hat and layer your maxi with a heavier knit sweater, suede jacket, ankle booties, or strappy heels. Choose maxi dresses and skirts with warmer colors and darker floral prints for Fall. Check out our great selection of maxi dresses from Hale Bob and Liberty Garden in a variety of styles, colors, and prints to fit any occasion. We like Liberty Garden’s newest black and white strapless embroidered maxi dress perfect for a night on the town, or go with Hale Bob’s black lace maxi for a classic look.

Don’t be afraid to keep your maxi dresses flowing for Fall.

SHIRTDRESS

Our final favorite street style trend spotted at last week’s NYFW is the shirtdress. Take a tip from celebrities Vanessa Hudgens, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, and Olivia Palermo and give this look a try for Fall. The simplest way to work the look is to grab your husband’s large button down shirt from the closet, cinch with a skinny belt, and pair with your favorite knee high boots. Or, shop the look now with our top choices from Hale Bob.
