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.
