AT THE OFFICE

Start your week off right and carry the soft neutral trend to the office with you in style. Start with a neutral colored knit pencil skirt from St. John’s Collection paired with Hale Bob’s sleeveless draped satin blouse or  ivory long sleeve silk blouse and classic Christian Louboutin pumps, designed to accentuate and elongate the leg line. Or if you are feeling daring, go with a white embroidered mini skirt from Hale Bob.

ERRAND DAY

Your romantic side can shine through even on “run of the mill” casual errand days.  Air dry your hair, tousle, and lightly spritz with a touch of Bumble & Bumble’s surf foam spray for a “no nonsense,” easygoing style. Next, grab a pair of stretchy, comfortable taupe ultra suede pants from Hale Bob topped with Rag & Bone’s ivory sweatshirt and chic leopard print ballerina flats from Salvatore Ferragamo. Strap on your blush pink cross body bag, swipe on a drop of all natural lip balm from Grown Alchemist, and you are ready to step out on the streets in style.

LUNCH WITH THE GIRLS

Why not be trendy yet comfy in soft muted pastels on your next lunch out? Start with Spring’s trendy distressed look, updated for 2016 on the skinny leg silhouette. We like True Religion’s stretch white skinny jeans topped with Chloe’s luscious vintage Victorian pink chiffon blouse, trending on the runways through Fall 2016. For chillier days, accessorize with a soft beige shawl coat from Harris Wharf London, or BCBG’s lace trench for a more structured style. Top off your look with Kate Spade’s sweet pink bucket bag and matching lace up sandals from Steve Madden. You’re sure to get the girls gossiping this year with your “easy breezy” beautiful Spring style.

DATE NIGHT

Surprise him with a little romance as you include the soft colors of Spring into your nighttime activities. From Gucci to Caroline Herrera, get in on this Season’s pretty pleated skirt trend seen on this year’s runways. Get the above look with Tibi’s strappy pleated swing dress or go with Tahari’s fit and flare dress for a more classic silhouette. If you’re a “girly” gal, Hale Bob’s sweet sleeveless pleated tank dress will suit you to a “T” paired with your favorite strappy heels or gladiators. And finally, for the inner Hollywood “diva,” make a grand entrance in the luscious floor length ivory empire dress NEW from Liberty Garden. Simple, classic, Boho, or dramatic, there’s a perfect pleated dress style just waiting for you.

BEACH DAY

With lace and “Boho chic” all the rage, now is the time to add a few of Spring’s “essentials” to your wardrobe collection. Perfect for the beach topped over your favorite swimsuit or paired over your “go to” tee and shorts outfit, be sure to add this Season’s favorite lovely lace Kimono jacket. Light enough to prevent bulk yet thick enough to provide a little warmth from Spring’s fluctuating temperatures, Liberty Garden’s ivory lace Kimono is the perfect jacket option for you this Season. Another favorite Spring jacket option is the “Boho chic” poncho. Slip on Liberty Garden’s black or ivory laced fringed poncho over your favorite poolside attire, or pair over Citizen’s of Humanity’s ivory shorts, Hale Bob’s white lace tank , and Free People’s tall gladiators for the quintessential “festival girl” style. Or, complete your day of fun in sun with Liberty Garden’s long sleeve lace tunic on chilly Spring days or off the shoulder lace tunic from South Beach swimsuits during summer’s heat wave. Kimono, poncho, or tunic, there’s a lovely lacy cover up option to suit your Spring style.

GARDEN PARTY

Unsure of what to wear to your next garden party or Spring wedding? You can’t go wrong in a creamy ivory or peachy pink lace dress, suitable for any occasion casual to dressy. We like Hale Bob’s ivory lace pencil dress with this year’s off the shoulder trending silhouette style. Go with the long sleeve two-toned dress or white lace strapless maxi paired with Topshop’s lace up blush pink wedges for little “Boho chic” flare. If classic is more your style, grab Hale Bob’s ivory floral A line dress accessorized with Badgley Mischka’s floral embellished open toes pumps and matching leather clutch from Tory Burch. Classic or Boho, mini or maxi, you’ll look lovely in lace this year.

NEUTRAL NAIL COLOR

This Season is all about “do it yourself” beauty and what better way to usher in Spring’s neutral colors than with an at home manicure makeover. Our favorite is the Red Carpet Pro manicure starter set, featuring your own LED lights, nourishing cuticle cream, prep nail sanitizer, base coat and top coat enhancers, plus nail polish remover and application purifying cleanser. Grab Salon quality nail polish in soft peach cream and in minutes you can enjoy weeks worth of nail beauty. Invite the girls over, brew some detox tea, and relax for an afternoon of nourishment, fun, and style from the comfort of your own home.

NEUTRAL MAKE UP

Don’t just stop at nail beauty. Continue Spring’s neutral color scheme trend into your daily make up routine this Season. Start with Urban Decay’s weightless ultra definition foundation, add a blushing cheek stain from Tarte,  a swipe of bareMinerals’ natural volumizing mascara, and finish up with MAC’s soft sheer nude lipstick inspired by designer Zac Posen. To compliment this year’s carefree, “unfussy” style, treat your tresses to a little extra loving care with natural remedies for damage control. Two of our favorite “hair masks” can be found conveniently right in your kitchen. First is the Avocado and Peppermint hair mask, made by mixing one avocado, a tablespoon each of olive oil and honey, and sprinkled lightly with peppermint tea to stimulate your scalp and offer intense refreshment to your locks. Our second favorite, used to treat damaged follicles, is the Milk and Honey hair mask, made from one cup of whole milk and a teaspoon of honey. Let hair soak in the mixture for 15 minutes, and then rinse and shampoo. You’re sure to turn heads your way with your natural glow this Spring.

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.

FALL’S FAVORITE COLOR COMBOS

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.

yellow jeans and pink scarf and hat for Fall

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

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.

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 for Fall

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. Dress up the maxi skirt by layering Hale Bob’s warm black fur vest over a silky long sleeved white blouse and accessorize with deluxe Badgley Mischka white crystal heels and matching Menbur clutch. Whether dressy or casual, be sure to keep the white maxi skirt as a Fall staple this year.

No need to throw your Summer whites to the back of the closet. Bring them out to shine bright during the dreariest of Fall and Winter days. Remember to forgo your favorite sandals and cotton sweaters in favor of heavier knits and snug booties to reflect the changing Seasons. Layering with a black leather jacket, pairing with a “Marsala” colored knit sweater, or adding a suede cross body bag and booties can help transition your fresh Summer whites into the cooler months of Fall.

FALL DENIM TRENDS ACROSS THE U.S.A

Fal denim jean fashion

Northwest, West Coast, Southwest, South, Mid West, East Coast, New England. No matter which region of the United States you are living, there is a denim fashion trend for you. Our blog usually focuses on the most common global trending styles and fashions, but this week, we take a look at what YOU our readers are wearing. As we move into the cooler months of Fall, see what denim styles are trending in YOUR area of the country. Whether you choose to dress like the locals or another region of the U.S., scroll below to see what denim fashion fits YOUR personality and style.

Northwest style skinny jeans  Northwest style skinny rolled jeans and plaid shirt

NORTHWEST SKINNY JEANS

Characterized by its proximity to nature, the Pacific Northwest’s fashion favors comfortable casual and outdoor cool. Since the weather is usually cool and rainy, Northwesterners are always prepared with a light flannel, warm coat, scarf, or stocking cap to stay trendy through the elements. The denim fashion of choice seen street style throughout the region is the skinny jean, easy to slip underneath boots or cuff at the bottom. We love Hudson’s Marcy skinny leg jean or go skin tight with the Nico super skinny.  Instead of traditional blue, try AC Collection’s gray skinny jeans, as pictured above, or the distressed gray skinnies for a chic “rocker” look. If you want to add some color to your Fall denim wardrobe, be sure to include Citizen’s of Humanity’s Thompson mid-rise skinny jeans in “shocking pink,” paired easily with any of your favorite button down shirts or oversized sweaters. Grab your latte, hit the trails, and stay in fashion with the Pacific Northwest’s favorite skinny leg denim.

West Coast

WEST COAST “BOHO” FLARE

With mild temperatures and year-round sun and surf, the West Coast style leans toward California casual and “Boho” chic. Even throughout Fall and Winter, this region rarely requires heavy coats or warm boots. “Be like the cool kids” this Season and look for denim styles in wide leg and flare silhouettes. We love Hudson’s light wash Ferris flap jeans or try 1921’s distressed flare paired with Hale Bob’s ivory lace tunic and Free People’s wide brim floppy hat. For a dressier Cali cool style, go with AC Collection’s medium or black wash flare denim topped with Hale Bob’s white sequined lace sweater and accessorized with Sam Edelman fringe ankle booties and Free People’s fringe clutch. Keep Summer’s spirit all Season long with the West Coast’s carefree “Boho” chic flare style.

Southwest bootcut denim with fringe

SOUTHWEST BOOTCUT

Quintessential Southwest style includes silver, turquoise, fringe, and the bootcut jean. Designed to fit over your favorite boots while lengthening your line, this silhouette flatters most figures with a lower and wider cut on the hips and a snug fit through the legs and thighs. We like AC Collection’s medium wash bootcut jean or try Hudson’s signature mid-rise bootcut. If you prefer a darker wash, go with Citizen’s of Humanity’s Amber ultimate bootcuts or 7 For All Mankind’s “Cozumel” denim. Pair your pants with a simple tank or Tee topped with a Minnie Rose cozy Cashmere fringe shawl favored by celebrities. Or go with a “Southwestern” styled print in Hale Bob’s fuchsia Mayan tribal tunic or coral “cold-shoulder” blouse paired with Franco Sarto low heel ankle booties.

Southern denim dress and cowboy boots

SOUTHERN DENIM DRESS

Kick up your heels, dust off your boots, and grab your “pardner” in the South’s favorite denim style this Fall. Though Southerners do like their jean pants, the denim dress is a huge trend this Season. We love Ralph Lauren’s classic denim shirtdress as pictured above, or go with an updated look as found on this year’s Runway with 7 For All Mankind’s overall dress, Diane Von Furstenberg’s wrap dress, or Victoria Beckham’s A line shaped style. You could also try designer Tom Ford or Chloe’s Runway style with a chic denim skirt paired with your favorite button down blouse or sweater. Say “howdy y’all” and shop AC Collection’s Diana denim skirt accessorized with a chic pair of cowboy styled boots and you are ready for a “boot-scootin'” good time.

Midwest relaxed straight leg jeans

MIDWEST STRAIGHT LEG

Open fields, long walks, changing colors, a cool breeze. All these things signify Fall is in the air in the Midwest. Dress appropriately for the changing Season with the straight leg denim jean. Go classic in Hudson’s Carly dark wash straight leg jean paired with your favorite sweater, “puffer” vest, and cozy hiking boots from L.L. Bean. Dress up your look in Hale Bob’s black satin blouse with lace and Steve Madden’s traditional black pumps. Update the straight leg style with some color and go with Goldsign’s army green Misfit jeans paired with your favorite patterned blouse or Liberty Garden’s new gray ombre knit sweater. However you choose to style your look, be sure to include the straight leg denim style as a wardrobe staple this Fall.

East Coast cropped distressed denim cropped denim jeans Karlie Kloss NYC East Coast cropped denim jeans and white button down

EAST COAST CROPPED

Morning or Night. Casual or Dressy. Play day or work day. The East Coast has fallen in love with the rolled cropped denim jean. From Sarah Jessica Parker to Olivia Palermo, celebrities have been spotted all over NYC sporting the latest denim trend. Not just reserved for running errands, be bold and dress up your cropped jeans with a leather jacket and high heels for a night on the town. Make your jeans “work worthy” by pairing with a chic blazer and comfy all day pumps. We love Joe’s classic rolled jeans or Citizen’s of Humanity’s dark wash cropped jeans. For 2 looks in 1, start with AC Collection’s Mystique “distressed” boyfriend jeans and wear long for errand day or lunch with the girls. Change up the style and roll the cuffs to your desired “cropped” length, pairing with chic strappy heels and Hale Bob’s floral lace sweater. Skinny, relaxed, or distressed, bring a bit of “the big Apple” into your fashion closet this Season with the cropped denim pant.

New England preppy denim

NEW ENGLAND PREPPY

Home of our founding fathers, New England is characterized by patriotic pride, traditional values, and timeless classics. Styles tend towards the preppy look with denim and khakis, sweaters and polos, and oxfords and boaters. New Englanders change their denim fashion up to achieve a relaxed yet tailored style, so anything goes with jeans. Get in on New England’s favorite look with Citizen’s of Humanity’s dark wash straight leg jean or go darker with 7 For All Mankind’s black skinny jean, and pair with your favorite denim button down underneath Liberty Garden’s fur trimmed cable knit sweater. Switch things up and grab Joe’s Jeans ivory skinny high water crop jeans topped with a striped button down and cozy knit cardigan from Lacoste. Complete your look with updated patent leather Oxfords from Kate Spade or go casual with Vans’ classic white sneaker. Don’t forget to tie a snug sweater around your neck as the crisp cool air starts to settle in for Fall.

FRINGE

Yee-haw! Country and Western touches are all the rage this Season, from handbags to jackets to skirts to jewelry. For a subtle western touch this Season, we are loving this neutral colored fringed oversized tote from Tory Burch or chic fringe earrings from H & M. Embrace the trend in full force with Free People’s fringe suede jacket or  fringe dress which can be paired over sleek silky pants like Chrissy Teigen at an MYNY event in NYC, or go with fringe western styled boots from Nordstrom for a rollicking good time. If you are feeling really daring this Fall, go for a Fringe hairstyle, a blunt choppy cut like Rose Byrne or fringe bangs like Jessica Chastain.

over-knee-boots-tbKNEE HIGH BOOTS

With the sixties in full swing this Season, it is a perfect time to try out the knee high boot trend. This Fall, the flat heel knee hit boot paired with a short dress, mini-skirt, or skinny jeans will keep you feeling fresh, and chic all season long. We are loving these Tory Burch suede button back flat heel knee high boots paired with a chic Betsey Johnson plaid sweater mini-dress and a patterned Hale Bob scarf. Or try snug fitted  heeled knee high boots paired with Hudson skinny jeans and a cozy ribbed funnel neck sweater from Topshop for a casual look. Either way this Season’s knee high boots are a Fall accessory that will  have you feeling groovy all Season long.

 390af9ceddc02de4c7c6877e7f5c0926MATCHING COLORS

As we mentioned in our “Fall Fashion” blog in August, designers this season are going for a matching, monochromatic color scheme for Fall fashion and accessories. This season, you don’t have to question what color shoes or handbag to choose, just match with the same color scheme as your chosen outfit for an up-to-date look. Trending colors for Fall are hot red, bright yellow, gray on gray, bright orange, and neutral as well as soft beiges and pinks. Wearing a monochromatic look is not for the bashful, so go big and go bold this Fall for a hot evening out by paring an Anne Klein fit and flare dress with matching Valentino red boots and handbag from Ralph Lauren. For casual, try, hot red Citizens of Humanity skinny jeans, and a red chunky wool sweater. As fashion designer Harry Winston says, “People will always stare. Make it worth their while.”

EVERYTHING FUR

Fur. Fur. Fur. Though it isn’t a groundbreaking fashion statement to wear fur in Fall and Winter, this season, look for fur on the most unusual accessories, from heels, to boots, to handbags, to jewelry, to collars. Forgo the usual fur coat, and update your Fall wardrobe with a chic fur vest. Pair the look with Hudson skinny black jeans, a contrasting Rag & Bone striped top, embellished bangles from Forever 21, and chic Guess heeled booties trimmed with fur for a perfect Fall look. Our top picks for fur vests are Topshop’s grey faux fur vest, Zara’s fur waistcoat with belt, and Anthropologie’s fur shawl vest. We’re loving the fur trend so much, we had to snatch the NEW DKNY faux fur handbag we found at Macy’s.

ANIMAL PRINT

Roar! Beginning in the Spring of 2014 and continuing into the Fall season, animal print is definitely here to stay. For Fall, pair animal print accessories with basic wardrobe essentials to enhance the look. For a chic office style that can easily segue into cocktail hour, pair your favorite black midi skirt and crisp white button down with gold bangles and leopard print clutch and heels by Jennifer Lopez. You can also add little animal print touches with The Limited’s animal print belt paired with jeans, a leopard print watch by Betsey Johnson, or even an animal print wallet from Nine West for a quick trip to the market.

THE FLOPPY HAT

Gone is the stocking cap and the fedora. Say hello to this Season’s oversized floppy hat. Trending throughout the Summer season as a chic beach and festival-goer accessory, the floppy hat segues easily into Fall by pairing with your oversized sunglasses, AC Collection wide leg jeans, and comfy chunky sweater. Not just for casual, wear your floppy hat to work in style paired with a maxi skirt and sweater, accessorized with gold bangles. For a dinner out, pair your hat with a chic black belted dress and stockings. Our favorite floppy hat picks are Nordstrom’s two-toned floppy hat, Topshop’s burgundy felt floppy hat, and Urban Outfitters’ studded floppy hat. For a completely different look, don’t just wait for a bad hair day. Accessorize with a floppy hat to spice up your wardrobe this Fall.

BLANKET LENGTH PATTERNED SCARVES

The scarf is the new necklace this Fall season. The wonderful thing about scarves is that they are oftentimes less expensive than coats and jackets, allowing you to select several different fabric options for cooler or warmer days as the weather fluctuates. You also have the luxury of draping a scarf over your coat for extremely cold days, staying warm but fashionable at the same time. For warmer weather, drape a silky scarf over your favorite chunky sweater and grey AC Collection skinny jeans. Our favorites are Hale Bob’s neutral pattern scarf, Hale Bob’s bright purple scarf, and Etro’s muti-media print scarf with trendy fringe accents. Pair with Chinese Laundry’s knee high boots, combining two trendy Fall Fashion accessories into one. For colder winter weather, wrap a chunky wool scarf around your neckline and let it drape over your warm Kate Spade peacoat jacket, jeans, and boots. Our favorite wool cozy scarves this Season are Burberry’s Wool berry-colored scarf, Free People’s Boucle long scarf, or go longer with a soft, drapey shawl. Of all the wonderful accessory options this Fall, we choose the blanket length scarf as our first accessory buy of the Season.

From belts to jewelry to scarves to shoes, accessorizing this Fall can be fun and doesn’t have to break the bank. Even if you don’t have much time to shop or much money to spend, pursue your favorite online store and add a chic fur vest for after-hours dinner, or a leopard patterned clutch, or a long scarf to keep you warm in the chillier Fall weather. The choice is yours- fringe accent, knee length boots, monochromatic ensemble, fur vest, leopard print, or waist length scarf. Which accessory will YOU choose this Fall?

To prevent looking too “frumpy” in your baby bootcut jeans, look for a a skinny fit through the hip and thigh, and make sure the length of the leg hits right at your shoes, not shorter.
