We thought this would be the perfect week to treat you to some of our ideas for maximizing fall fun, while at the same time giving you some tricks for staying stylish during every activity.

VISIT A FALL FESTIVAL 

8a8e73cc5880c37d0176c8b2d160bfad

Fall festivals are always a fun way to expose yourself to some down home, local flavor and an excellent excuse to indulge in those carbohydrate rich treats we do not allow ourselves anywhere else; can you say funnel cakes and deep fried oreo’s? When venturing into a haunted house, perusing a pumpkin patch, or opting for amusement park pandemonium one thing is for sure; comfort is key. You can’t go wrong in a chic pair of skinnies, a cozy sweater, and ankle boots to keep you warm, also this outfit makes it easy to outrun any ghosts or ghouls that may cross your path.

ROMPER

Our first item of choice for your vacation is the romper, Spring’s most popular fashion statement. From strapless to long sleeve, from cotton to silk, from floral print to pale pastel, this shorts set is your “go to” item this year. Start with Liberty Garden’s off the shoulder breezy white lace romper accessorized with matching white wedge sandals from Clarks with a plush OrthoLite footbed for all day comfort. Flatter a tiny waistline by cinching with Ralph Lauren’s braided leather belt and complete your look with Mango’s chic fringe bag. If you prefer a little color, go with Hale Bob’s multi-color tribal print shorts set or go neutral in the ivory printed strapless romper. While you’re at it why not grab Liberty Garden’s black gauze romper for your girl friend, and you two will be traveling together in style.

PRINTED PANTSUIT

Our second favorite travel “must have” is the printed jumpsuit, perfect in the car, at a rest stop, or even on your first night out on the town. We like Hale Bob’s strapless tribal print pantsuit or go with the fuchsia printed viscose crepe jumpsuit, suitable for all your planned events on your vacation. Pair your look with Tory Burch’s wedge sandals as you travel cross country. Switch to Boho chic tassel lace up flats from Dolce Vita as you peruse around town. As the sun sets, you’ll be ready to dance the night away in your rhinestone embellished cage heels from Vince Camuto. Casual or dressy, the printed pantsuit is perfect to fit all your vacation activities.

TUNIC DRESS

Don’t leave home without a cool, breezy tunic dress, perfect for easy, carefree styling and comfortable enough for all day wear. From patterned, to pastel, to embellished, there’s a perfect dress to suit your style. Go with this year’s Boho chic craze in Liberty Garden’s long sleeve white lace tunic shift dress or sleeveless lace frock,  paired with Free People’s “road trip” tall gladiator sandals, True Religion’s straw floppy hat, and Ran Ban’s round “hippie” sunglasses. If classic is more your style, you’ll love Hale Bob’s olive lace trimmed satin dress accessorized with Sam Edelman’s crystal flower flat sandals,  sleek envelope clutch from Diane von Furstenberg, and basic bowtie watch from Betsey Johnson. If simple and unfussy is what you’d prefer, select Hale Bob’s flowy blue chiffon shift dress for “no nonsense” style. This dress is perfect for long travel days when you don’t want anything too constricting yet it’s also great for a day at the beach or a night out to dinner. Playtime or travel time, the tunic dress is one to include into your suitcase this year.

MAXI DRESS

Another favorite dress option to pack in your suitcase is the maxi dress. Suitable for any occasion and flattering on all body types, the maxi dress is flowy enough to keep you comfortable in the car ride yet dressy enough to take out to dinner. We love Hale Bob’s teal printed jersey maxi dress paired perfectly with your Clark’s cork wedges already packed to go with your romper. Get your “Boho” on with Hale Bob’s tie dye print maxi, accessorized with your gladiators, or go classic in Liberty Garden’s black gauze strapless dress. No matter which style you prefer, each look will go perfectly with your gold metallic strappy sandals NEW from Badgley Mischka for your girl’s night out.

TIE DYE SKINNIES

From Altuzarra to BCBG Max Azria, designers are throwing it back to the groovy 70’s. Appearing on jeans, to shorts, to tunics, tie dye print is having a huge comeback this Season. Why not get in on this year’s trend with Hudson Jeans’ mid rise super skinny jeans, perfect for your road trip with the girls. Pair your look with Liberty Garden’s lace peasant blouse, your gladiator sandals, floppy hat, and fringe bag for the perfect Boho chic style. Even if vintage 70’s is not quite your style, you can still have fun in your skinnies by combining with your favorite slouchy tee and sneakers for a casual cool look. We like Liberty Garden’s ivory swing back tee or go with some color in the pink jeweled jersey short sleeved shirt. Be sure to stick in Liberty Garden’s long sleeve loose pink tee for those days when the weather turns chilly. You can also pair this top over your romper and pantsuit for extra warmth.

53e9c84ddf9f4c3b876a29180f712551

PEASANT BLOUSE

If there’s only room for one top in your suitcase, let it be the flowy peasant blouse. Perfect paired with your favorite jeans or shorts, or layered over your romper and sleeveless maxi, this top will keep you cool yet trendy all Season long. Flattering on all body types and suitable for any occasion, you can pair your peasant top with your tie dye skinnies from Hudson , as mentioned above. For Boho chic princesses, go with Liberty Garden’s white lace gauze tunicor the ivory white crepe empire top with navy embroidered rose embellishment. For the hopeless romantic, get  Hale Bob’s floral print silk chiffon blouse with flutter sleeves. And for the classy gal, try Hale Bob’s black long sleeve embroidered lace blouse. Whichever style you like best, be sure to include the peasant top into your travel essentials this Spring.

MUSIC FESTIVAL STYLE ICONS YOU CAN COPY

David-Jones-Spring-Summer-2015-Featuring-Daniel-Johns-Music

With Coachella kicking off this past weekend, Spring’s hottest music festivals are now upon us and what better way to be a part of the festivities than to get some fashion inspiration from music’s favorite style icons. Even if you can’t attend the festivals, you can still feel like you are there with our top looks. Peruse our favorite fashion finds spotted at music festivals across the country and start sporting your top choices today.

SELENA GOMEZ’S WHITE LACE ROMPER

One of this Season’s trendiest looks, Selena Gomez rocks a romantic white lace romper at this year’s Coachella Music Festival. We love the feminine feel of the frilly lace paired with the easy breezy shorts set to keep you cool and fresh throughout all of Spring’s activities. Grab Liberty Garden’s NEW long sleeve romper or go with this Season’s popular off shoulder silhouette in the white crochet shorts set from Liberty Garden.  Accessorize your look like Selena with Kenneth Cole’s gold metallic ankle strap sandals and classic Ray Ban aviators and you are “Hollywood” ready. When the party’s over, kick off your heels, whip up your hair into a relaxed topknot, and slip on Tory Birch’s nude slide on sandals or your favorite sneakers from New Balance. Don’t forget to add a delicate tiered  anklet from Free People for a little “festival” fun this Spring. Dressy or casual, your white lace romper is perfect for any occasion.

SHAKIRA’S WHITE MAXI DRESS

Our second favorite “Boho” chic look spotted at this year’s music festivals is Pop star Shakira’s white gauze maxi. Perfect for days at the beach over your favorite swimsuit or nights out on the town, the white maxi is your “go to” dress for Spring. Go “shabby chic” like Shakira and pair Liberty Garden’s white lace maxi with a bright resort tote from John Robshaw and your favorite flat sandals for all day comfort and style. Segue into the evening hours by tousling your hair with Kerastase Spray a Porter for beach wave style and accessorizing with Vince Camuto’s embellished ankle strap flat sandals and matching crystal clutch from Sondra Roberts. Don’t forget to keep those toes in tip top shape with Yves Saint Laurents’ “quartz rose” nail lacquer, Pantone’s color of the year. From daytime to nighttime, you’ll shine just like your favorite Pop star in your own long white maxi dress.

CARRIE UNDERWOOD’S PEASANT BLOUSE

Our third favorite “Boho” chic style for Spring is the peasant blouse. Started in the sixties with the hippy movement and popularized in the seventies by music icons like Cher and Karen Carpenter, the peasant blouse gets an update this year. Whether you decide to rock the oversized look like Carrie Underwood, a crop fit, or high low hemline, the peasant blouse is definitely a “must have” for Spring. We like Liberty Garden’s black and white long sleeve 70’s style blouse paired with your favorite skinny jeans or shorts. Accessorize your outfit with BCBGMAXAZARIA ‘s floppy hat and gladiator sandals from Aldo for quintessential “Boho” style or go with hair in a high bun and wedges from Chloe for a classic look. Go with an embroidered ivory empire waist top to soften a broad shoulder, or a white lace gauze blouse to accentuate a long neckline, all NEW from Liberty Garden. Flattering on any body type and suitable for every style, the peasant blouse is one you’ll want to include into your wardrobe staples this year.

JENNIFER LOPEZ’S SKINNIES AND KNEE HIGH BOOTS

For those who prefer to be a little less “trendy” and a bit more on the “classic” side, we love Jennifer Lopez’s simple yet high fashion style. By combining wardrobe staples in just the right way, she definitely makes a statement without trying too hard. You can do the same by pairing your favorite skinny denim with a snug lightweight turtleneck, knee high boots from winter, and a chic fringe handbag. Slick your hair into a sleek topknot, and you’ll look like you just walked off the runway. Get “Jenny from the block’s” rocking style with Hudson’s super skinny jeans or go with Citizen’s of Humanity’s straight leg denim if you prefer a little room to breathe. Top your outfit with Hale Bob’s navy blue knit turtleneck, or choose the skin tight lace bodysuit to hug your every curve. Complete your look with knee high suede boots from William Rast and fringe hobo bag from Muche et Muchette and you are ready to step out in style no matter what the occasion.  

RIHANNA’S JERSEY DRESS

For the “sport” in all of us, we love Rihanna’s chic “athleisure” Spring style. Play with the boys but retain your femininity with this fun sporty look by letting your hair down and accessorizing with your favorite jewelry. We like the trefoil tank dress from adidas or go with the comfy heather grey sport jersey from Revolve. For daytime fun, tie a bandana around your head, take a tip from Rihanna, and pair your look with texturized embellished sneakers from Puma, classic sunnies from Tom Ford, and a whimsical rainbow watch from Betsey Johnson. Simply segue into the evening hours by switching to Stuart Weitzman’s classic black ankle strap heels and grabbing Diane Von Furstenberg’s large ready-to-go bag so you’re ready for whatever the night may bring.

TAYLOR SWIFT’S PRINTED MAXI

Lastly, the reigning queen of pop and one of music’s most popular fashion icons, we love Taylor Swift’s bright new crop cut for Spring to match her edgy style overhaul. Taking a cue from the Naeem Khan Spring 2016 runway, the star looks smashing in a double slit printed maxi complete with chunky boots for a sweet but sassy fashion statement. Get her similar style with one of Hale Bob’s lovely printed maxi dresses in all colors and silhouettes. We like the classic pink and white floral maxi, or the ivory strapless dress for a more muted tone. Spring’s breezes leaving you chilled? No need to sacrifice beauty. Go with the long sleeve teal printed frock to keep you warm yet stylish all Season long. Though we all can’t be young again like the icon, we can copy her determination to not to let loose, be a bit daring, and take chances.

penneys_81121995136445

From Selena Gomez to Taylor Swift to Jennifer Lopez, these style icons show us that beauty has no age and it’s never too late to try something new. Take a tip from our fashion music favorites and try one different fashion look this Season. Whether it’s wearing a unique dress style that you normally wouldn’t, or sporting a new haircut, or wearing heels instead of sneakers, promise yourself to take a chance this Spring. We guarantee you will feel and look more beautiful on the inside and out for having tried something new.

Be You. Be Fabulous. And always be feminine.

From Michael Kors to Naeem Khan to Gucci, flowy “Boho” is back in a big way this Season with flouncy floral print dresses, cropped wide leg pants, off-the-shoulder peasant tops, gladiator sandals, and floppy hats.

FLORAL DRESS AND MILITARY JACKET

No need to wait to bring out your favorite floral Springtime dress this year. Even if the weather proves too cold for your sheerest of dresses, there are many tips to stay warm against the elements without cramping your style. We like Hale Bob’s ruffled silk chiffon sundress contrasted with this Season’s trendy utilitarian military jacket, and accessorized with bright caged heels from Donald J Pliner and a neutral oversized handbag from Vince Camuto. Or start showing off your “beach body” curves with Hale Bob’s snug pink floral sheath dress paired with Jill Sander suede ankle booties when the weather is chilly and metallic triple strap sandals NEW from VANELi for warmer Spring days. Your military style jacket also looks great on your way to the office over the sleeveless jacquard floral dress from Hale Bob. From home to work to party time, go ahead and bring your flowery Springtime dress out to play.

FLOUNCY FLUTTER DRESS AND CROPPED JACKET

Our second favorite dress and jacket combo is the fluttery flounce dress and cropped jacket look. Even if this year’s Easter proves rainy or cold, don’t let that stop you from wearing your favorite Springtime style. We like Hale Bob’s satin floral print silk sundress paired with the black Bolero jacket and black ultra suede leggings in case the weather is extra chilly. If the day becomes warmer, simply remove the leggings and swap out your heels for slip on wedge sandals from Jimmy Choo. You could also accessorize your look with a classic leather jacket as pictured above for a “rockin'” Spring style. Go neutral with Trouve’s classic black, Halogen’s pale pink cropped, or spice things up in Rag & Bone’s bright red. Whichever jacket style you choose, you’ll definitely be able to wear your flouncy Spring dress sooner rather than later this Season.

MAXI DRESS AND SWEATER

Don’t leave your favorite maxi dress out of the mix either. With “Boho” trending now more than ever, it’s time to let your hair down and start feeling Summer’s carefree days to come. Start with Liberty Garden’s ivory embroidered strapless maxi and top with a simple ivory gauze button down also from Liberty Garden and flat gladiator sandals from Rebecca Minkoff. On chilly days, stay warmer in Hale Bob’s ivory cropped jacket or Liberty Garden’s terry knit lace. If you’d rather go with some color, shop Posh at Play’s wide selection of Hale Bob print maxi dresses from colorful coral to bright green to rosy red. Perfect the “Boho” style by accessorizing your look with Free People’s straw wide brim hat, hobo bag from Elliot Lucca, and fringe sandals from Diane von Furstenberg. On Spring’s colder days, swap out the sandals for fringe booties from Sam Edelman, and layer with suede leggings from Hale Bob. Warm or cold, either way, you can start wearing Spring’s favorite “Boho”trend now.

TURTLENECK LAYERING

Another favorite way we love to style the maxi dress for now is by layering a sleek turtleneck underneath. The key to pulling off this look is to be sure that the material of your top is super thin with no embellishments to prevent your silhouette from looking too bunchy or bulky. If needed, you can also add a cropped coat or leather jacket over your outfit for added warmth. Turn heads this Season in Hale Bob’s teal printed silk maxi paired with the black knit long sleeve turtleneck, buckled ankle booties from Free People, and shoulder strap purse from Zac Posen. You can also use the turtleneck to pair under other trending Springtime fashions like Hale Bob’s silk floral blouse, the off the shoulder velvet top, or Liberty Garden’s black sheer lace chiffon. This versatile turtleneck can even be topped with rompers like Liberty Garden’s lace trimmed twill shorts set or any of the tank dress selections from Hale Bob and Liberty Garden. Don’t let cold weather dampen your Spring style. Simply grab a turtleneck to keep you warm underneath your favorite Spring trends.

CAMI AND SEQUINED CARDIGAN

Give your favorite snug winter sweater a Springtime update by pairing with a loose gauzy cami and lightweight skinny jeans or leggings. As the weather warms, you can tie the sweater around your waist for instant style. Grab Hale Bob’s grey sequin cardigan and top with AC Collection’s silver metallic skinny jeans and a rose quartz colored silk and lace tank, Pantone’s color of the year. We also like Hale Bob’s ivory silk tank with flounce or the mixed media flyaway cami from Liberty Garden accessorized with Hale Bob’s cool silver cargo leggings and glam round sunglasses from Tory Burch as seen across the runways this Season. Look ahead to warmer weather and start wearing your favorite flouncy tanks and camis now.

SHORTS AND LEGGINGS

And lastly, what says “Summer” more than your favorite pair of shorts? Though the last of winter’s weather may leave your legs too chilly to wear alone, we’ll show you how you can still wear your favorite Seasonal style right now. Start with a pair of basic blue denim shorts and layer snug knit or suede leggings underneath, accessorizing with a cropped coat, oversized sweater, or wool scarf depending on how cold your climate is. We like Citizen’s of Humanity’s “distressed” denim shorts with Hale Bob’s matching ultra suede leggings , silk washed cami from Equipment, and Liberty Garden’s lace Kimono for a clean, streamlined look. Usher in Spring’s florals in flower print denim shorts from Joe’s Jeans paired over Hale Bob’s gray ultra suede leggings, cozy gray knit sweater from Shabby & Chic, and ankle booties from BP. If shorts are not quite your style, you might find Citizen’s of Humanity’s loose fit long denim shorts a more comfortable option, or if you are looking to take a few inches off your waistline, get AC Collection’s vintage high waisted denim. Whichever silhouette suits you best, you can start wearing your favorite Summer staple now.

IMG_8392

There’s no need to wait to wear all your favorite Spring and Summer trends. Go ahead and shop your favorite looks and use our layering tips to keep warm until the weather changes. If your city is still chilly, layer your outfit with your favorite winter jacket or overcoat and warm leggings or skinny jeans. If you happen to live in a warmer climate, forgo the leggings and skinny jeans and layer with lightweight fabrics to segue into cooler evening hours. Enjoy Spring today!

For work, pair your skirt with a crisp button down from Liberty Garden and matching low heeled red pumps from Trotters for all day comfort. Mid-afternoon lunch beak with the girls? Swap out your heels with a chic pair of leopard print slip ons from Just Cavalli for a “sneakers and skirt” style trending this Spring.

BOYFRIEND JEANS AND BLAZER

No need to stress this holiday season. Dress comfortably yet stylishly in your favorite boyfriend jeans topped with a bush pink blazer and simple white Tee. Polish the look off with your favorite pair of pumps and you are ready for Valentine’s Day fun. We like AC Collection’s distressed light wash “Mystique” boyfriend jeans paired with Liberty Garden’s ivory lace swing back tee, blush pink blazer from BCBG, and strappy floral heels from Sam Edelman. Whip your hair into a sleek pony, and segue into the evening hours by topping your jeans with Hale Bob’s black lace bodysuit and Betsey Johnson’s matching rose sandals for a “hot without trying too hard” nighttime style.

BLACK JEANS AND POLKA DOTS

Another comfy yet classy Valentine’s Day look this year is your favorite black jeans paired with a fun polka dot printed blouse. Easily adaptable for any event you have planned this weekend, the jeans keep you comfortable while the top shows your girly side. Start with Hudson’s cropped skinny jeans paired with Hale Bob’s polka dot blouse and classic pumps from Jimmy Choo. Since we’ve heard from fashion expert Rachel Zoe that the skinny pant may be on it’s way out for Spring 2016, get ahead of the trend and grab a pair of AC Collection’s “Boho” black flare dress pants or go flowy in the black wide leg pants. Whichever way you choose to style, you can’t go wrong with this comfy classic outfit on Valentine’s Day.

WHITE LACE SHORTS AND CROP TOP

Who says you have to reserve shorts only for summer time? Now is the perfect time to get ahead of the Season and show off those toned legs you’ve been working on at the gym. Start with Hale Bob’s white cotton floral embroidered shorts paired with Liberty Garden’s black lace crochet tank top, and accessorized with Ylang23’s black leather cuff, black lace pumps by Charles David, and studded clutch from Diane von Furstenberg. Or sparkle in style with Hale Bob’s NEW black sequined lace short sleeve shirt topped with Liberty Garden’s ivory lace skort. If neither of these looks suit you, try one of this Season’s hottest trends with Liberty Garden’s ivory lace romper seen all over Spring 2016’s runways this year. On Valentine’s Day, don’t be afraid to show off those gams and shine in style.

HOT PINK SUNDRESS

Another great silhouette you can go ahead and bring out to wear is Summer’s favorite sun dress. It’s not too early to try some of the Season’s newest trends, colors, and styles. Start with Hale Bob’s strapless fuchsia silk ruffle dress paired with nude ankle strap sandals from Gucci, gold cuff from Vita Fede, and matching clutch from Kate Spade. When the weather turns chilly, throw on a chic cropped Bolero jacket from Hale Bob or go “Boho” in Liberty Garden’s faux suede trimmed lace poncho. If strapless doesn’t suit your style, try Hale Bob’s magenta short sleeve lace dress accessorized with your favorite booties, pumps, or sandals. Whichever dress type you choose, let it be pink, let it be pretty, and let it be you!

MARSALA COLORED DRESS

Continuing as one of this Season’s most popular colors, Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to pull out this “wine colored” number. You’ll have your honey ready to pour you the first glass as you strut the streets in style. Go sleek in Hale Bob’s long sleeve lace dress with peplum, perfectly accentuating an hourglass figure. Structured more your style? Then go with Milly’s sleeveless crepe mini dress with oversized belt to emphasize a trim waistline. Planning a night of dinner and dancing? Shimmer away in Parker Black’s sequined silk dress perfect for any body type. No matter which dress silhouette you decide on, fashion experts agree that the best shoe to pair with a marsala dress and also to lengthen the leg line is a nude colored heel. Our classic favorite is Christian Louboutin’s nude pointy toe pump, but if you can’t quite indulge that much then, go with a similar leather pump from Schutz. Perfect for whatever your holiday plans might entail, a marsala hued gown is just right for you.

1bd6293ea88b84fc7b45c2c63870dd3a

BLUSH PINK MAXI

Our final top pick for Valentine’s Day 2016 ends with a luscious blush pink and ivory maxi dress. Reminiscent of the romantic days of old yet re-designed for a new century, this maxi dress is one you’ll want to keep wearing all Season long. We like Liberty Garden’s pale pink embroidered crinkle cami dress paired with Free People’s gladiator sandals for a “Boho” look, wedge sandals from Corso Como for a moonlight walk on the beach, or Topshop’s feather sandals for a candlelit dinner for two. Since the dress makes enough of a statement, you don’t have to accessorize with much else. Just grab your favorite clutch, toss your hair back, and you are ready for a romantic night on the town.

o-VALENTINES-DAY-COUPLE-AGE-facebook

From red hot pencil skirts to girlie polka dots to romantic maxi dresses, there is a perfect Valentine’s Day style to fit you this Season.

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.

THE NEW ATHLEISURE

Karlie Kloss athleisure white leggings and crop top

Originating a few years ago, the “Athleisure” trend shows no signs of slowing down as we head into the 2015 Fall Season. Characterized by athletic wear OUTSIDE of the gym, designers like Kate Spade, Alexander Wang, and Tory Burch have recently started delving into the current trend  by designing entire separate lines focused on athletic wear for the streets. With our busy lifestyles, women today need to be able to “do it all” yet still maintain style and class. This week, we focus on the current and continuing Athleisure trend and show you how to incorporate the look into your daily fashion style. Go beyond the simple leggings and white Tee and take our tips on how you can stay fit and fabulous this Fall Season.

Athleisure gray leggings and black leather jacket

AT THE OFFICE

A perfect place to try out your new “Athleisure” wear is at the office. Start with your favorite comfy jogger pants and layer with a tailored blouse, jacket and booties for a structured look. We love Liberty Garden’s new grey quilted jogger pants topped with a metallic faux suede detailed black long sleeve top and leather jacket from Barney’s. Accessorize with black suede ankle boots from Sam Edelman, bangles from Betsey Johnson, and a chic leather bag from Alexander Wang.

striped pants and black sweater

Make your track pants go the extra mile in our second favorite look for the office. No need to pack an extra outfit after your early morning run. Simply sweep your hair into a loose bun and pair your exercise pants with a comfy sweater and heels for a perfect workday outfit. Try the side stripe pants from Finders Keepers or go with black and white striped Ponte leggings from Hale Bob. Top with Liberty Garden’s black fur sleeved pullover and classic black pumps from Kate Spade and you are ready to rock the office place in style.

Athleisure gold shorts and sweater

LUNCH WITH THE GIRLS

Squeeze in a quick run around the block or a trip to the gym before lunching with the girls. This Season, look for running shorts in a variety of trendy metallic colors like copper, silver, or bronze. Segue into the lunch hour by forgoing your running sneakers and pairing your look with wedges, ankle boots, or even chic strappy heels accessorized with a zip-up sweater and long gold chain. We like the metallic nylon shorts from Luisviaroma topped with a matching metallic jacket from Just Cavalli and Chinese Laundry’s silver strappy heels or go prep school cool in Steve Madden’s the “Driller,” an updated take on the classic oxford. If copper is more your style, pair your metallic shorts with Hale Bob’s sequined copper jacket and sparkle in style this Season.

Athleisure white jeans and sweatshirt

As the weather cools, trade your running shorts for long leggings to fend off the chill and keep your muscles warm. No time to run home to change? No sweat. Just pair your leggings with a “sports inspired” fashion top and ankle strap heels for your mid-day meeting. We love Hale Bob’s ivory ultra suede leggings or try the newest color in pale powder pink. Pair your look with Liberty Garden’s loose white open shoulder sweatshirt or try the pink pleated long sleeve top. For chiller days, you can layer your sweatshirt over your favorite button down blouse for extra warmth against the elements. However you choose to style your shorts or leggings, your friends will never know you didn’t labor over your beauty routine.

Athleisure gray cargo leggings and black striped sweater

WEEKDAY ERRANDS

Drop the kids at school. Head to the gym. Shop at the market. Answer emails. Pick up the dry cleaning. Get dinner. With all the little worries each day brings, don’t let your fashion style be one of them. Make it easy on yourself this Season and opt for a morning to evening Athleisure look that will carry you through any occasion the day may bring. Start with Hale Bob’s comfy stretch silver Cargo Ponte leggings paired with Liberty Garden’s cozy black and white Menswear sweatshirt and Steve Madden’s brand new “Vexxed” black leather ankle strap pump for all day styling. No need to worry. You’ll still be able to squeeze in a mid-day Spin class or jog around the park with your favorite sneakers and Hale Bob’s ivory lace trimmed jersey tank.

gray and black lace sweatshirt

For another look, we also like Hale Bob’s floral lace crochet sweater or white lace top with gray sweater knit paired with Liberty Garden’s quilted skinny sweatpants and Isaac Mizrahi textured classic pumps. Slip into Sketchers’ newest GoWalk3 gray sneakers for perfect lift and support as you hit your workout regime. Dressing comfortable yet fashionable doesn’t have to be complicated this Season. Let your wardrobe work for you.

cropped pants and cropped top Athleisure style

DATE NIGHT

No time to head home before a night out on the town? No problem. Start with your favorite cropped yoga pants or striped leggings and add a chic cropped top. Celebrities from Taylor Swift to Jennifer Lawrence have been spotted this year sporting the crop top, so why not jump on one of this Season’s hottest trends. Nothing helps keep your Ab workout and healthy eating habits in check more than adding this wardrobe staple to your closet for Fall. We like Jill Stuart’s black silk cropped top paired with Hale Bob’s black and brown striped ultra suede leggings, Kenneth Cole’s black ankle strap heels, and White House Black Market oversize handbag.

 78e66fb41e2f7d111eeea67fb49cd992  black jeggings and black crop top for evening

Another easy daytime to evening look we love is the crop top paired with your favorite “go to” leggings. Top with a jean jacket and walking sneakers during the day, and segue into nightlife with your favorite heels and handbag. Try Joe’s Jeans’ black “jeggings,” a cross between jeans and leggings, trending for Fall to complete your look and you are sure to turn heads as you walk the streets in style.

WEEKEND COOL

As things wind down and you begin to look forward to the weekend, don’t let your fashion sense take a break. You can still stay trendy and fashionable while looking effortless and feeling relaxed. Spruce up your favorite lounge outfit and bring it to the streets by adding a chic pair of heels and a classic leather jacket. We love Liberty Garden’s white distressed lounge pants paired with an ivory lace swing back Tee, French Connection’s white studded pumps, and Vince Camuto black leather jacket.

gray knit dress and sneakers

Another cool casual weekend style we love is the comfy heather grey knit Tee shirt dress paired with a sweatshirt and white tennies. Get cozy with Current/Elliot’s short grey T-shirt dress or go maxi in Marc Jacobs’ sleeveless cotton dress. Complete your weekend look by tying Liberty Garden’s ivory layered ultra suede sweatshirt around your shoulders and stepping into a pair of classic Adidas “Superstar Foundation” white sneakers. You could also go with Liberty Garden’s “tuxedo-style” high low hemmed gray knit Tee paired with Hale Bob’s simple 5 pocket gray leggings.

80’S PREP FOR FALL

Though the weather is still ablaze with Summer’s heat, it is time to start thinking about Fall Fashion. As “Back to school” sales and Autumn’s holiday decor fill the stores, let’s take a look at one of our favorite Fall Fashion trends to hit this year’s Runways. You don’t have to be in school to try this Season’s “College Prep” style with a nod to bright colors from the 80’s. Scroll down to see how you can wear this look without appearing too “frumpy” or outdated. Get ahead on your Fall Fashion style by including some of our top picks below.

Taylor Swift A line Fall dressA LINE PREPPY DRESS

One of our favorite celebrity stylists, Taylor Swift rocks an “A line” pale blue dress last week on the streets of NYC. Since she is surrounded by her runway model bffs, Taylor is always one of the first celebrities to show us what is trending in Fashion. The “A line” dress is a perfect dress choice since the cut fits and flatters all ages and body types, and segues perfectly from Summer into Fall. Get Taylor’s similar style with Hale Bob’s blue A line Ponte lace dress. Pair the look with cute kitten heels and a handbag for warmer days, and accessorize with a button down sweater and chic booties as the weather cools. Either way, this is one of our top picks for Fall Fashion 2015.

boyfriend cropped jeans and blazer Fall fashion      BOYFRIEND CROPPED JEANS 

Our second favorite look to return for Fall is the cropped jean. This Season, forgo your skinnies, and go for a more relaxed style with the boyfriend cut. The cropped boyfriend jean is perfect paired with a simple white tank and sneakers for an “Athleisure” look. Or style with a flowy silk blouse, pumps, and clutch for an evening out on the town. We love Citizens of Humanity’s relaxed Dylan cropped jeans or Joe’s Jeans’ rolled classic cropped paired with Hale Bob’s white lace trimmed tank and classic white Converse. Top with a “military” style jacket for chillier Fall days. Try Hale Bob’s Taupe stretch Ponte jacket for perfect preppy style. Don’t foget to carry your jeans into the evening hours with Hale Bob’s flowy ivory silk blouse, Sam Edelman nude pumps and classic Rebecca Minkoff ivory clutch.

 

           CABLE KNIT SWEATER

Another classic look we are loving for Fall is the ever durable cable knit sweater. A style that never seems to go out of date, the cable knit sweater is having a renewed comeback for Fall 2015. Designers this Season have updated the look by combining the traditional style with fur, bright colors, or patterned prints. Get your own “cable knit” style with Liberty Garden’s fur trimmed sweatshirt and cable knit sweater paired with 7 For All Mankind’s dark wash bootcut jeans and oversized leather handbag from Fossil. For another “preppy” style look, pair your sweater with Hale Bob’s classic black A line skirt, perfect for the office or lunch out with the girls.

WHITE SKINNIES AND GINGHAM  

Carry a bit of Summer into Fall with your favorite white skinny jeans paired with trending gingham for 2015. We love Citizen’s of Humanity’s Thompson skinny white jeans or the high water cropped from Joe’s Jeans paired with Banana Republic’s comfy Boyfriend navy gingham button down shirt and Via Spiga ankle strap sandals. Carry your skinnies into the evening hours and complete your “preppy” Fall look by topping with Hale Bob’s polka dot silk blouse and accessorizing with trendy Kate Spade black ballerina flats and Michael Kors’ black leather cross body bag. Who says no white after Labor Day! Make your own rules this Fall and hit the streets in style.

camel coat with patterned button down and fitted jeans

CAMEL COAT AND PATTERNED BLOUSE

Go classic prep this Fall with a traditional camel overcoat and fitted denim jeans. Bring the look up to date with a uniquely printed patterned blouse and comfy ankle booties. When the weather warms, forgo the coat and wrap a snug sweater around your shoulders “preppy” style. We like Hudson’s Collin skinny jeans paired with Hale Bob’s patterned blouse topped with Diane Von Furstenberg’s warm camel wool blend overcoat and Ivanka Trump ankle boots. For warmer days, go with Bebe’s classic trench coat in blush champaign, a trending color for Fall. Or, wrap Liberty Garden’s cozy Ombre grey sweater around your shoulders for perfect preppy style.

white culottes and black sweater

CULOTTES

Before you cringe, don’t be afraid to include this iconic 80’s staple into your wardrobe for Fall 2015. Culottes were a huge trend in the 80’s and they are back in a new and improved style this Season. For an updated Fall evening look, pair your culottes with a comfy sweater, classic tailored heels and jeweled accessories. Go “Athleisure” casual with a comfy fitted Tee or cami and accessorize with your favorite sneakers. We love White House Black Market’s white soft drape culottes paired with Hale Bob’s floral lace black sweater and Stuart Weitzman’s classic black patent pumps for dressier occasions. Stay casual in your culottes with Hale Bob’s black laser cut tank top or black studded silk tank and favorite sneakers. Throw on a black trench or tie on Liberty Garden’s soft pink long sleeve sweater around your shoulders for extra warmth on cooler Fall days. However you choose to style them, be sure to include this staple into your closet this year.

COLORED DENIM

If “preppy” is not quite your style, you can still get in on the 80’s trend with a pair of brightly colored denim jeans. Change up your “jean routine” this Season and add a little color into your life. For an understated style, go with army green denim, trending for Fall, or go “pretty in pink” with a bright fuchsia look. We love Goldsign’s “Misfit” green straight leg jeans paired with a printed button down blouse under a cozy ivory sweater. Or glow bright in Citizen’s of Humanity’s “shocking pink” Thompson skinny jeans paired with a classic denim button down blouse and your favorite ballerina flats. Go beyond basic blue, black, and white jeans for Fall and go bold this Season.
