LOTS OF LOVELY LEGGINGS

multiple-leggings-styles

Never since this years controversial debates between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton has there been such a hotly debated topic as whether or not leggings are pants. The parties on each side of this controversy are passionate about their position but we are hoping through this post we can prove to the naysayers that leggings are indeed worthy of being placed in the category of pants. What I ask you is more comfortable to wear then a pair of leggings? They allow the ease of movement of a dress or skirt without the risk of being exposed. They provide the coverage of a jean or pant without feeling binding and restrictive on the body. There are days when I have thrown on a pair of leggings and a sweater and actually forgotten I have anything on (perhaps that’s just me). If styled well they can be dressed up or down and worn for literally any occasion.

This week we celebrate the legging (as pant) with a presentation of our favorite styles which enhance the basic legging with luxurious fabrics and unique flair.

THE LEATHER LEGGING
black-leather-leggings

Leather leggings elevate any style. They can make an outfit look sophisticated or just a little edgy depending on your personal styling. Some of our favorite combos for the leather legging are a beautiful oversized cashmere sweater with a pair of killer leopard print stilettos or dress them down with a cute army jacket, t-shirt and pair of motorcycle boots.

Vegan Leather Leggings:
Marlina Coated Leggings
Rugged Faux Leather Leggings
Kate Embossed Leggings

Black Leather Pants + Grey Sweater

THE SUEDE LEGGING

brown-suede-leggings
Who doesn’t love suede? Suede always looks so rich, smooth and inviting like your favorite vanilla latte. It is almost impossible to resist reaching out and touching this fabric (albeit not always socially acceptable). To me suede equals luxury and it can be worn with everything from a t-shirt (instant chic) to a very tailored jacket with tall boots for the office but our favorite look is paired with a very romantic spun cotton and lace peasant blouse. Date night awaits, there is no way he can resist this look.

suede-leggings
Another derivation of this look is the classic suede patch leggings. A touch of the luxe without being to bold at work.

Sensational Suede Picks
Pascalla Suede Leggings
Joe Ivory Ultra Suede Leggings

CARGO PANT LEGGING
cargo-pocket-leggings-3

At first thought these leggings may seem a little counter intuitive to the main point of what a legging is supposed to be; simple, streamlined, smooth and they can be a little more challenging to wear if you have wider hips but if paired properly with a light over-sized shirt or fitted jacket they can make for a great addition to your legging collection. WARNING: avoid any chunky, heavy, over-sized sweaters which can make the whole outfit look frumpy.

Leggings for the utilitarian:
Black Ponte Cargo Leggings
Silver Ponte Cargo Leggings
Rowan Cargo Skinnies

THE PRINTED LEGGING
printed-leggins-2

These might be the hardest leggings to pull off but they are soooo cute! You see them at the store, you can not resist the impulse buy and then you get home an wonder, now what? Where am I ever going to wear these? The key to pulling off the printed legging is making sure that the entire outfit does not get to busy. The best way to achieve this is with a simple, solid-colored top, avoid a lot of embellishment with jewelry or scarves, let your leggings speak for themselves and supply the pop of color and interest to your outfit without looking garish. Keep it simple!

Perfect printed leggings:
Floral Jersey Leggings
Purple Printed Leggings
Taylor Jersey Leggings

So, showcase your legs a little this season and find the perfect comfort and fashion balance that best fits you. Because, we here at Posh At Play always encourage you to
BE YOU, BE FABULOUS, AND ALWAYS BE FEMININE.

FUNCTIONAL FASHION: MAXIMIZING YOUR WARDROBE

ugg-spring-classics

We’d all like to make our lives a little easier and functional, spending less yet gaining a little more. Whether you’re an “on the go” girl who’s looking for transitional clothing to go from morning to evening, a traveler who needs to pack light, or you are just looking to simplify your wardrobe, take a look at our “Functional Fashion” picks that are a must have for this season.

ITEMS YOU CAN WEAR MORNING TO EVENING

6e7c87701eda63631f1460e7b4372bb6

We all have busy lives to lead and who wants to think about packing a bunch of clothes for the entire day? Why not grab a great versatile piece that can carry you from morning to evening? Go with a chic black jumpsuit, demure enough for the office, yet spiced up in the evening with a quick change of shoes and a cozy feather or sequined jacket.

c264fcc34311079f1fad690f57b3d704

0c8a8efcb52fca5871fbb54458b9df5a

Make like Kendall Jenner and have your jumpsuit work with you in your favorite comfy boat shoes or sneakers to keep you moving all day long. Your streamlined outfit might not come fashioned with enough pockets to hold all your necessities throughout all your activities.

THERE’S NO SHAME IN COMFY SHOES

1474384734775

Let your comfy shoes take you places this Season. While we love a good heel now and again, there’s no problem with taking a “lower” road this year. When you are on the go, the last thing you want is for your feet to give out mid-day. We are loving the “ballerina” flat for Fall. Comfy and chic, this shoe can pair easily with your favorite skinnies, leggings, or midi skirts throughout the Season.

bfa661e9adbb0a53b70a2f196d30a36d

AND bonus points: we love these “foldable” flats that can slip easily into your purse for a quick change throughout the day. Slip off your work heels and pull out your flats when you need to dash around town for a few errands or activities with the kids feeling fab and fashionable this Season.

4b065bc004c5d555a1be9d1808e7fb59

And you MUST include the ankle boot into your Autumn wardrobe. Warm, comfy, and stylish, the ankle boot is perfect to pair with everything from your favorite cropped jeans, to leggings, to even a maxi dress or skirt.

OMG! Ugg boots are still in style for Fall? Of course they are. These are the perfect comfy functional shoe to fit into your daily routine. Able to pair with anything, these boots will keep you warm and stylish all Season long.

Celebs from Sarah Jessica Parker, to Ashley Greene, to Kendall Jenner have been spotted sporting the trend. So what’s keeping you from pulling out your comfy Uggs? OR go ahead and buy some new ones for the current Season.

GO MODERN WITH REVERSIBLE CLOTHING

Jai Collection

Clothing is having an era of re-birth with the reversible fashion trend. The simplest way to switch your outfit in an instant is with “reversible clothing,”an item that can be turned inside out to completely change the look, feel, and color. We are crushing on Jia Collection’s branding style. Now you can have several different styling options with just one simple garment.

Jai Collection

With their wide variety of dresses, knits, and jackets, you can go from morning at work to lunch with the girls to date night in the evening wearing a completely different look, but the same item all day long.

helene-clarkson

We also like Helene Clarkson’s clean yet flattering line suitable to take you all over the world with just a few key pieces tucked into your carry-on. From business to pleasure, you’ll only have to pack a few items with her reversible skirts, blouses, and jackets.

reversible-travel-jacket_zpsiqb63nby

Don’t just stop at your daytime wardrobe. Why not try reversible active wear for your daily workout routine. No need to spend a fortune on sports attire- make your fitness fashion go double duty by investing in reversible sports bras, leggings, or jackets.

A comfy pair of leggings can work for you day or night, paired with a blazer for work, a Tee for daytime, your reversible crop for workouts, and a sequined top for nighttime activities.

Check out our favorite legging options here:
“Pascalla” Black Ultra Suede Leggings
“Jepson” Ponte Stretch Leggings
“Taylor” Blue Print Jersey Leggings

While you are on the go, consider clever travel pieces which include built in pockets that allow you to stay moving without the need of a purse or extra baggage. Check out the Clever Travel Companion fashion line suitable for workouts, travel, and active days. Not only are money belts, fanny packs, and vests the opposite of fashionable, but they can also make you more of a target for scams and crime, especially when traveling.

CONVERTIBLE CLOTHING 

elizabeth-and-james-convertible-trench-coat-parchment

You can also make one item work for you without it being “reversible.” Why not try the convertible clothing option using one item in a variety of different ways. We are loving Elizabeth and James’s convertible trench and the multitude of different ways you can fashion one item of clothing. Traveling has never been easier and your closet will thank you. Wear as trench for cooler days, take off the sleeves for a cute shirt dress effect, then take away the bottom for a chic cropped jacket.

WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS THE ONESIE IS YOUR GO-TO

573a2fa8-2950-4fb0-8791-44b96fce3bc3-1_637x637

beyonce-x-college-jumpsuit-1

It’s an expression of the need to disconnect from the pre-scheduled daily routines. Inspired by the ones who come alive when the shift ends, living life on an inverted schedule, as kings and queens of the moment, the onesie is a huge trend this Season. From celebs like Beyonce to Kylie Jenner, everyone is getting on board the newest fully functional wardrobe necessity.

Check out the site “Onepiece” who’s setting the mark on this Season’s latest trend. Whether you have a long flight ahead of you, pair with a jacket for errands around town, or snuggle up for a cozy night in, the onesie is a fashion statement that can travel with you wherever you go.

57e90b91-bfe0-4142-8cc1-4513af4f34e6-1_637x637

On the go all day, flying through the airport, or just don’t have time to make it home, functional fashion can be your friend this Season. If you choose to slip a sweater over that maxi, switch out your handbag for a wristlet, pair your summer shorts with a cozy pair of tight, or take on the “onesie,” there are limitless ways to stay stylish while cozy this Season.

No matter how you decide to stay “functional,” remember:
Be YOU, Be Fashionable, and ALWAYS Be Feminine.

OLYMPICS 2016: GET INSPIRED

gigi-hadid-ashton-eaton-august-2016-vogue-cover-10

The Olympic 2016 Games are upon us and it’s time to get to know the US athletes and be inspired by their dedication, enthusiasm, and patriotism. And why not take a few tips from our top athletes at the same time on how they maintain body and mental health, strength, and endurance.

2014 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships - Day 4

SIMONE BILES, WOMEN’S GYMNASTICS

Expected to bring home the gold, Simone Biles is set to dominate the women’s gymnastic competition this year. Raised by her grandparents, she’s always had a natural “spunk” and athletic ability, and now she’s ready to show the world her amazing talent. Not only must athletes stay mentally strong to handle the pressure, they must also maintain a balanced diet and exercise plan to allow their muscles full potential. At only 4’9″ and 105lbs, how does she maintain a strong, trim physique? On training as well as off season, she likes to stay disciplined with her diet with no greasy, salty, sugary or all-around heavy meals. She says,“Pre-workout I love drinking Core Power; it’s a recovery drink. And then a banana and peanut butter because bananas have potassium, which helps with muscle cramps. And then afterwards, I like having a good fish, like salmon, and rice and carrots.”

Check out our favorite healthy recipe that’ll keep you in tip top shape just like Simone:

Baked Grouper with Chunky Tomato Sauce

What you’ll need:
3 1/2 cups chopped seeded tomato (about 4 medium)
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup dry white wine
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
1 teaspoon capers
1 teaspoon bottled minced garlic
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons olive oil
4 (6-ounce) grouper fillets

Directions:
(1) Preheat oven to 425°.
(2) Combine first 10 ingredients in a medium bowl.
(3) Heat oil in a large heavy skillet over high heat. Place fish, skin sides up, in pan; cook 2 minutes.
(4) Turn fish over; top with tomato mixture. Bring to a boil. Place pan in oven; bake at 425° for 8 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

KRISTIN ARMSTRONG, WOMEN’S CYCLING

No one knows dedication more than this year’s women’s cycling team. Comprised of 4 unique individuals, each of the US women is strong enough in their own right to medal. One to watch is 43-year-old Kristin Armstrong, already a 2 time Olympic medalist and favored to place at the Games. When asked why she would want to come back for her fourth Olympics after retiring she states, “Simply because I can.” But how does she balance work, career, and family? By maintaining an exercise regime, eating healthy, enjoying nature, and scheduling in quality time with her son and husband. You really CAN do it all; it’s just a matter of planning and maintaining a positive attitude. When you feel life start to bog you down, take our handy tips for relieving stress and regaining balance:

(1) Yoga: It combines the practices of several other stress management techniques such as breathing, meditation, imagery and movement, giving you a lot of benefit for the amount of time and energy required. Check your local listing for a Yoga studio near you.
(2) Breathing: Deep breathing is an easy stress reliever that has numerous benefits for the body, including relaxing muscles and quieting the mind. Breathing exercises are especially helpful because you can do them anywhere, and they work quickly so you can de-stress in a flash.

KERRI WALSH JENNINGS, BEACH VOLLEYBALL

One to watch this week is Kerri Walsh Jennings on the US Beach Volleyball Team. Gold medalist in the 2004 and 2008 Olympics, she seeks to regain her title and beat out the host country’s record 11 medal Olympic Beach Volleyball win. We’ll be rooting her on, but how does she keep those incredible abs and picture perfect tan? Says Kerri, “I do Pilates three times a week—twice in the studio and once on the beach, I lift weights twice a week, I do physical therapy, and I do brain training and meet with my sports psychiatrist, so I’m really taken care of from head to toe. I eat a lot of oatmeal and drink a lot of shakes—anything I can put in a cup and take with me!” On maintaining a picture perfect tan: “I’m a little bigger than normal and really pale! When you have a tan, everything seems a little tighter, so I’m a big fan of organic spray tans, like Chocolate Sun.” Check out our Facebook for a perfect DIY Tanning lotion you can use today to get Kerri’s sun kissed look.

Show off your tan with the perfect bright bold Summer bikini:

U.S. WOMEN’S WATER POLO

Mix swimming, basketball, and soccer, toss in some wrestling for good measure, and you have a pretty good description of the exciting, fast-paced sport of water polo. The U.S. women’s water polo team is ranked No. 1 in the world and is considered the favorite to bring home the gold medal at the Rio Olympics. To watch water polo is to see a frenzy of churn and motion.

That’s what you see on the surface. What you don’t see are the players’ legs, circling constantly underwater. The players aren’t allowed to touch the bottom of the pool. They’re treading water the whole time, each leg circling in an opposite direction. It’s a motion that has an excellent name: eggbeater.

Just how do these women stay in shape to maintain that type of stamina? Take our three step exercise regime to stay “Olympic” ready:

(1) Jumping Jacks: Simple yet to the point, this exercise builds strength and stamina. Hold 3-5lb weights for extra muscle tone. Do 3 sets of 20 reps and build from there.
(2) Planks: Builds core strength and abdomen muscle tone. Descend onto elbows and hold body in a “plank” position for 1 minute, maintaining straight back and elongating neckline. Turn sideways onto right elbow, tucking left leg under right for a sideways “plank” extending left arm up, holding for 30 seconds. Repeat on the other side. Repeat entire set 3x.
(3) Resistance Band: You will need an exercise resistance band. Secure band behind you by tying to a door or bar. Position body away from the band. Grab the band from behind and pull extending your arm as far in front of you as you can, maintaining a 90 degree angle with the elbow.
NOTE: Check out our Posh at Play Facebook Page for more exercises you can do.

WOMEN’S SOCCER TEAM

Defeating New Zealand 2-0 in its debut at the Rio Games on Wednesday, the US Women’s soccer team is already off to a solid start in its attempt to win a fourth straight Olympic gold medal. Up against the host country team favored to win, the US women will have an uphill battle to win but are confident based on camaraderie and team spirit. Get in the “game” and try a little one-on-one with a friend or family. Soccer is a great way to build stamina and coordination with the fast foot work and cardio, and you’ll have so much fun you will forget you are exercising.

Try out our favorite lightweight Summer shorts perfect for playing the game:

WOMEN’S SWIMMING TEAM

Veterans mixed with novices make up this year’s US Women’s Swimming Team. Ones to watch are Missy Franklin who scored 4 golds in 2012’s London Olympics and Katie Ledecky, who might just be the best swimmer in this year’s Rio Olympics. Though these athletes appear poised, calm, and confident, female swimmers talk about the pressures of basically being half naked your entire life and not fitting in with your peers at an early age.

Said five-time Olympic medalist Missy Franklin: “There’s so much that’s coming at you from so many different angles. You’re impressed upon really, really easily. When I was 13, I had size 13 feet. I was very different, and it made me stand out. It makes you feel a little uncomfortable when you’re so different from your peers — and from what you’re seeing.”

But these athletes used their differences in a positive way- something we can all learn from. That’s why we here at Posh at Play are always encouraging you to be YOU and embrace who you are from within, while wearing the fashion that expresses your individuality.

Be inspired by the bright colors of the Swimmer’s leggings with our top choices:
“Taylor” Bright Blue Patterned Leggings
“Fire” Red Printed Jersey Leggings
“Royal” Purple Patterned Leggings

And finally, how can YOU support our Olympic Team and feel a part of The Games? Why not show your Patriotic pride and wear red, white, and blue. While the athletes march in the Opening Ceremonies Friday evening donning custom made Ralph Lauren gear, shop your own “USA” wear here:
Citizen’s of Humanity’s “Thompson” Skinny Jean
“Manic” White Cheeky Shorts
“Chain Reaction” Blue Washed Silk Jacket
“Kiss and Tell” Red Lace Tunic

No matter which sport or which athlete is your favorite, show your patriotic pride for the good old USA by watching this year’s 2016 Rio Olympics. Cheer on your favorites and be inspired by our athletes’ dedication and passion.

And remember our mantra here at Posh at Play:
Be YOU, be fashionable, and always be feminine.

WHITE IS RIGHT THIS SPRING

kate-bosworth-white-lace-chloe-dress-net-a-porter-the-edit-main

From Alexander McQueen to Chloe to Miu Miu, white is right this Season. Usher in Spring 2016 with a pure, clean head to toe white outfit. Flattering on all skin tones, you’re sure to be the talk of the town this year. Take a peek at our favorite fashion outfits and start shopping the trends today.

BOHO LACE DRESS

Get groovy in this Season’s trendiest fashion blast from the past. From Chloe to Zimmermann to Rachel Zoe, designers have brought back the 70’s “Boho Chic” style from last year with new and updated silhouettes and adornments for 2016. Start your collection with Hale Bob’s embroidered mesh long sleeve lace dress paired with sandal clogs from MIA and crossbody bag NEW from Rebecca Minkoff. Accessorize with a silk scarf “head band” from Free People , or pull your hair into a high pony for a sleek look. Carry your look to the office in Hale Bob’s classic long sleeve A line lace dress combined with matching lace pumps from Benjamin Adams London, a white Bolero jacket, and croco-embossed leather mini case from L.A.P.A. On your next evening out, get in on one of this Season’s trendiest silhouettes in Hale Bob’s off the shoulder lace dress complete with a snug fit to show off those curves. Casual to formal, the white Boho lace dress can be incorporated into any event or activity this Spring.

6cf45bab6d03f3d72efe3d46fd66f80e

LACE MAXI DRESS

Another favorite “Boho” look to try this Spring is the flowy longer lace maxi dress. Cool and carefree, this style is perfect for days at the beach, errands out, lunch with the girls, or a hot night on the town. NEW from Liberty Garden, we like the sleeveless white lace crochet maxi or the charming vintage empire waist dress paired perfectly with matching flat gladiator sandals from Free People, straw floppy hat by Helen Kaminski, and Lucky Brand’s fringe crossbody for perfect “Boho Chic” style. If you prefer a more classic look, you can still get on the trend with Hale Bob’s sleek sleeveless long lace dress accessorized with gold floral flat sandals from Kate Spade on casual days and ankle strap satin heels from Menbur for dressier occasions. No matter your personal style, there is a white lace maxi dress to suit everyone this Spring.

OFF THE SHOULDER BLOUSE + SKINNIES

As we mentioned in last week’s blog, off the shoulder is one of this Spring’s most popular blouse styles. Flattering on any body type, this silhouette elongates the neckline and hides “trouble” spots like a thick waist or bigger arms. We suggest pairing your billowy top with skinny pants to avoid a bulky or “heavy” appearance. Get the look pictured above with Marques Almeida’s gauzy white blouse combined with Citizen’s of Humanity’s mid rise skinny jeans, leather handbag from Vince Camuto, and classic heels from Christian Louboutin. If your day calls for a “no jeans” rule, simply swap out the denim for Hale Bob’s cotton sateen skinny pants or sleek ultra suede leggings for elegant Springtime style.

WIDE LEG PANTS

In contract to the skinny, the second favorite pant style among designers on the runway this Spring is the wide leg. Suitable for any body type, the wide leg pant is easily adaptable for any occasion casual to dressy. For slimmer body shapes, you have the freedom to pair your pants with anything from a snug cami to a loose fit sweater to a “Boho” crop top. For fuller figures, avoid appearing too bulky by combining your look with a tucked in tee or a tailored crop jacket. On thinner silhouettes, try Hale Bob’s white studded satin wide leg pants accessorized with Liberty Garden’s pleated swing tank , short sleeve lace back swing tee, or crochet silk cotton halter by Hale Bob. On stocky figures, emphasize a smaller waistline by pairing your wide leg pants with Hale Bob’s fitted cotton lace tank top or a crop stretch Bolero jacket. You can also wear this look combined with your favorite swimsuit at the pool or beach. Swap out the dressier satin pants for Hale Bob’s crepe de chine wide leg palazzos with smocked waist for perfect all day comfort.

TOP + SHORTS

As Spring’s weather warms, switch out the white pants outfit for much cooler shorts. Not just reserved for casual outings, this fashion style can also be worn in more formal occasions if paired with the correct accessories. Look for a “dress short” such as Liberty Garden’s loose fitting lace skort or go with a longer version in Marni’s Bermuda style knee length shorts. Keep it classy by accessorizing with Hale Bob’s silk satin burnout blouse or go a little “Boho” in Liberty Garden’s lace trimmed chiffon top combined with a matching tote from Michael Kors and trendy clear suede toed heels from Gianvito Rossi. On more casual days swap out the dress shorts for Hale Bob’s lace crochet  or  Citizen’s of Humanity’s white denim distressed shorts and switch the heels for Jeffrey Campbell’s clear platform oxfords. Remember our tips on how you can look classy not trashy this Season in a head to toe white shorts outfit and you’re sure to turn heads wherever you go.

a0e12aa2be607a3a585789dd8b21ff63

ROMPER

A second shorts outfit to try this Season is the romper, connecting a blouse and bottoms together in one. Though this fashion was popular last Spring and Summer, designers have updated the look for 2016 by loosening up the silhouette and adding a “cold shoulder” neckline. Try this outfit today with the white lace crochet romper NEW from Liberty Garden paired with Castaner’s wedge sandals and rag + bone’s Panama hat for daytime fun. Segue into the evening hours by switching out the wedges and hat for lace up ankle strap heels from Aldo and matching white crystal trim clutch from Whiting & Davis. If your style is a bit more traditional, go with the long sleeve lace trimmed twill romper from Liberty Garden accessorized with flat sandals or even a pair of your favorite comfy white sneakers for the perfect “athleisure” look.

fc17020e82498b73bbd6b068ab035a35

STRUCTURED DRESS

And finally, for those who prefer a more structured silhouette, the all white style can still work for you this Season. In addition to all the suggestions we’ve listed above on how to turn the “Boho” style into a classic look, you can also include the trendy solid color sheath or shift dress into your daily wardrobe. Popularized by Jackie Kennedy and Audrey Hepburn in the 1950’s, the shift is characterized as a usually sleeveless short dress featuring little to no detailed shaping. We like Hale Bob’s ultra suede filigree short sleeve dress, perfect for work, play, or your next Springtime party. In contrast, the sheath dress fits snuggly, emphasizing the curvy female form. For this style, go with Liberty Garden’s long sleeve mixed media sheath dress paired with your favorite booties or strappy heels for nighttime fun. As mentioned above, don’t forget that you can also accessorize your dress with sneakers or flat sandals for a casual, comfy style.

a8c0a8e254f41ae42ef0cae3c402c128

From dresses to pants, casual to dressy, Boho to classic, head to toe white is a “must do” this Spring. With all of our fashion tips listed above, there is a perfect style to suit any taste and flatter every figure. Start your Spring off right with a clean, bright new Season.

 

 

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.

fa8afd58c8b492a47d768c7f375217b7

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.

With Springtime nearly upon us, now is the perfect time to try out this year’s pretty pastel pinks, blues, yellows, and greens.

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.”

BALLET IS FASHION

Cole Haan ballet inspired fashion

In celebration of last weekend’s National Dance Day across America, this week we focus our blog on how dance is infiltrating fashion and social media. While dance has always had a strong presence in the European culture, the U.S. has lagged behind when it comes to infusing the performing arts into mainstream media. With Vogue’s recent article on the rise of ballet in fashion as well as the trending crop of “Ballet Barre” and “Bar Method” workout programs, perhaps our country is ready to embrace the mixture of this cultured art form with everyday living. Take a look at our favorite “ballet” inspired fashion finds and start incorporating a little classical ballet into your everyday wardrobe.

PINK LEGGINGS

If the idea of chiffon and tulle are little too much for you, start your collection with the colors of ballet. From Altuzarra to Oscar de la Renta, the runways this year were filled with ballet’s favorite colors: blush, pale pink, and ivory. Part of a ballet dancer’s required performance wear includes pink tights, in order to lengthen the line of the leg in her pointe shoes. Take a tip from the stage, and grab a pair of pale pink leggings to add to your Summer collection. We love Hale Bob’s newest pink suede leggings now available at our online store Posh at Play. Pair with a cami and ivory lace Kimono from Liberty Garden for a sweet Summer style. Carry the look into the Fall months by topping with a cozy powder pink sweatshirt from Liberty Garden and low ankle boots.

black ballet unitard  black jumpsuit ballet inspired fashion

ALL BLACK 

One of the simplest ways to achieve a dancer’s sleek figure is to dress head-to-toe in all black. In order to achieve the longest lines possible and a perfect shape, a dancer’s “go to” class wear outfit will always be either a solid black unitard or a black leotard and black stirrup tights. Get the look with this Season’s popular jumpsuit trend. From Giuliana Rancic at this year’s Grammys to Monica Potter at the People’s Choice Awards, celebrities are embracing the jumpsuit trend not only for everyday wear but also on the Red Carpet as well. Get your own sleek ballerina look with Liberty Garden’s black lace jumpsuit paired with your favorite black pumps for extra length. Or go “Athleisure” with Hale Bob’s black stretch Ponte leggings paired with a fitted black laser cut cami or stretch black lace bodysuit from Hale Bob for cooler Fall days.

TWO TONED

Maybe it’s the years of disciplined training as a student wearing the same boring black leotard and pink tights everyday to class. Maybe it’s not being able to afford a lot of new dancewear on a dancer’s tight budget. Or maybe it’s the drafty theaters that teach dancers to layer up. Whatever the reason, step into a professional ballet class and you will see an array of mismatched colors and layers on each dancer. Pictured above, professional ballerina Svetlana Zakharova of the Kirov Ballet nails the trending “two toned” look by layering her basic black unitard with a bright cap sleeve leotard and white practice tutu as she rehearses her role in “Swan Lake.” Get a similar style this Season with Liberty Garden’s two-toned Terry knit short sleeve shirt paired with Hale Bob’s black mixed media leggings. Complete your “ballerina style” with Ballet Beautiful’s newest satin ballet flats in pale pink or hot red, featured in this week’s Vogue.

GRAY SWEATER

Speaking of layers, if it’s one thing all dancers know, it’s to always bring along a sweater or sweatshirt. In order to prevent injury throughout the long day of rehearsals, a dancer’s muscles must stay warm and stretched. In every dancer’s bag, you will find an array of leg warmers, back warmers, baggy sweatshirts, ballet sweaters, knit shorts, insulated pants, and more. Get your own dancer style with a loose fit soft gray sweater and black leggings. We like Hale Bob’s Gray Ombre knit sweater paired with black faux leather leggings and ankle boots. For warmer days, layer your sweater with Liberty Garden’s cool ivory lace skort and Cole Haan’s Stagedoor Ballet flats specially designed by 3 New York City Ballet dancers combining functionality, form, and fit.

BALLET PINK DRESS

Channel your inner ballerina this Season with the epitome of elegance and grace in a pale pink dress. Since the color pink is trending this year on the runways, there is no better time than now to bring out this luscious and feminine color in style. You can go classic in a pale pink shift dress paired with tailored heels and a simple clutch. Or, modernize the look with your favorite comfy sneakers, a crossbody bag, and oversized sunglasses for an “Athleisure” style. If you can’t decide which look you like best, go with Hale Bob’s blush pink ultra suede shift dress perfect for work or play, dressy or casual. No matter what the occasion, you’ll look pretty in pink this Summer and Fall Season.

Svetlana Zakharova Carmen red dress red lace long sleeve dress

“CARMEN” RED

Another common color used in the ballet world is bright red. In ballets like “Carmen,” “Don Quixote,” and “The Nutcracker,” the color red is used to depict the playful or “fiery” personality of the character. What better way to express your inner “diva” this Season than with bright red. Get a similar look to Russian ballerina Svetlana Zakharova’s “Carmen” in Hale Bob’s long sleeve red lace dress with a slight flare skirt for extra sass. If red from head to toe is a bit much for you, try just a touch with Hale Bob’s red suede leggings paired with Liberty Garden’s lace back swing Tee or Hale Bob’s flowy long sleeve red silk blouse paired with your favorite jeans, perfect for now through the Winter holidays.

CLASSIC WHITE

Finally, if all the pinks and flowy fabrics are too “girly” for your taste, no need to fear. You can still get in on the “ballet” trend with a classic white A line dress, flattering on any size and figure. Go a la “The Red Shoes” by pairing your dress with bright red flats for a pop of color, adding a belt and handbag for perfect street style. We love Hale Bob’s classic ivory floral lace A line dress accessorized with Sam Edelman ballerina flats or “get on pointe” with Topshop’s NEW Pointy toe lace up shoes. We also love Hale Bob’s “Cinderella” tank A line dress with a perfectly fit “ballerina” bodice for a flattering figure.

One of the most demanding art forms, a ballerina’s goal is always to achieve the perfect balance of form, grace, beauty, pose, strength, and confidence with an air of calm and ease. Become your own ballerina this Summer and Fall with our great fashion tips. Whether you choose to wear blush pink or a tulle skirt or the newest lace up ballerina flats, you are sure to exude your graceful yet confident presence this Season wherever you go. Remember our Posh at Play motto and you can do no wrong this year: Be You, Be Fabulous, and always Be Feminine.

New Year. New You. It’s time to kick start the New Year with a fitness routine to fit your lifestyle. Whether a jog in the park, a dance class at your local ballet studio, or an intense workout at the gym, now is the time to get in shape. And why not stay fashionable while you are staying fit?

COLORFUL PATTERNED LEGGINGS

We love the colorful patterns trending for Spring in all areas of fashion but particularly with leggings. Look for a mixed patterned legging to brighten your daytime activities and workout routine. Pair your colorful leggings for daytime with a basic tee and blazer, accessorized with chic tall boots for a Winter to Spring transition. Later in the day, shed your blazer, tee, and boots, and pair your leggings with a sports bra and running shoes, and you are ready for your workout. We love Hale Bob’s stretch printed jersey leggings in a variety of colorful patterns perfect to mix and match a variety of wardrobe staples already in your closet.

COLOR BLOCKED LEGGINGS

As we mentioned in our previous blog “Trending Prints in Fashion for 2015,” color blocking is a popular trend this Season, juxtaposing two or more colors together in a whimsical pattern. We love actress Blake Lively’s color blocked leggings paired with heeled boots and an oversized jacket for work or daytime errands. Transition into your workout easily by slipping into your Sketchers GOMeb Speed 3 running shoes, just released for 2015 with a better fit and durability for long distance running and racing. We love Hale Bob’s color block suede leggings for a chic daytime look and an insulated warmth for your workout. No one will suspect that you’ve just come from your morning run with these fashionable leggings.

LEATHER TRIMMED LEGGINGS

For a sleek modern style, we love the leather trimmed leggings. Try Hale Bob’s black quilted faux leather leggings for fashionable style. With leather trimmed leggings you can rock out your daytime look with chic booties and a light sweater for Spring’s chilly winds and amp things up at night by layering a fuchsia blouse with a cute cashmere polka dotted sweater from Saks Fifth Avenue, paired with chic Steve Madden Maarla heels. Squeeze in an afternoon workout on your lunch break by tossing off your sweater and grabbing your running shoes stashed in your car. With chic, easy style, now there’s no excuse NOT to exercise.

BOLD STRIPED LEGGINGS

As we mentioned in “Trending Patterns in Fashion for 2015,” big, bold stripes are IN for Spring and where better to make a fashion forward statement than in the gym? We love Hale Bob’s black and white stretch Ponte leggings, a perfect new addition to your wardrobe this Spring. For daytime, pair your striped leggings with an Alexander Wang sheer black blouse and booties, and transition to your workout wear by pairing with trendy Chuck Taylor All Star leather converse and a plain white Tee. Throw on a leather jacket afterwards for a chic street style on your way home.

SWEATSHIRT

No need to reserve your favorite sweatshirt for only your workouts this Season. Spotted on the streets during Fashion Week from New York to Paris, designers and models are pairing their favorite sweatshirt, whether fitted or baggy, with feminine skirts and sleek leggings. We love Liberty Garden’s collection of sweatshirts, from the faux leather embossed sweatshirt to the crochet lace sweatshirt. For daytime, pair your favorite sweatshirt with 7 For All Mankind black skinny jeans and chic booties. Plan your workout during lunch hour, and pair your sweatshirt with gym shorts or exercise pants. After your workout, spruce up for evening by pairing your sweatshirt with Hale Bob’s sheer lace pencil skirt and Jimmy Choo ivory satin strappy sandals for a chic night on the town.

CARGO LEGGINGS

A new legging trend is mixing cargo pants with a sleek finished style. We love Hale Bob’s black stretch Ponte cargo leggings, for a little distinction from all the rest. The side pockets are perfect to hold your keys and phone as you start your workout. Transition to workday wear easily by pairing your cargo leggings with a white Tee, Hale Bob’s black bolero blazer, and black flats. Add strings of necklaces or try Hale Bob’s colorful scarves for that perfect polished touch.

BASIC GRAY LEGGINGS

Instead of reaching for the common black leggings, go lighter this Spring and try cool gray leggings for your daytime fun and workout wear. We love Hale Bob’s basic 5 pocket Ponte silver gray leggings perfectly paired with a gray pullover from Liberty Garden, and Jimmy Choo’s “London” trainers, new for 2015. After your workout, forgo the sweatshirt and sneakers for a bright fuchsia sweater by designer Trina Turk and checkered Sergio Rossi pointy toe pumps for a chic, classic look perfect for daytime errands, lunch with friends, or evening cocktails.

BRIGHT SNEAKERS

A trending fashion style seen all over the runways and at the Fashion Shows from Milan to New York last Season and for Spring 2015, is wearing your sneakers for everyday wear. Designers are pairing the everyday running sneaker with skirts, dresses, and pantsuits for a fun, unique look. No need to toss your sneakers aside after your workout; simply pair them with your favorite dress for daytime fun or skirt for the office. We love New Balance’s 890 V3 for whimsical fun, Mizuno Wave’s Creation 15 in a fun summer pattern, or Gola’s “Libery art Fabrics- Spirit” sneaker in a flirty floral pattern, perfect for Spring.

You can easily fit in a walk around the block, a bike ride in the park, a quick gym workout, a dance class into each day, and with a quick change of shoes and top, you are ready for the rest of the day.

PASSIONATE ABOUT PONTE

It seems that everywhere you look these days the word Ponte keeps popping up, but if you are not a committed fashionista or in the garment industry it is very likely that this is word that you, like me, just skip over without giving it much thought. Big mistake. It turns out when a designer lists an item with the term Ponte they are trying to communicate some very important pieces of information to us about the wear, fit and durability of the fabric. Ponte has become so popular because it can overcome a lot of challenges for us ladies in the traditional problem areas; curious? Let me explain. 

BEADED PONTE MILITARY JACKET

BEADED PONTE MILITARY JACKET

PURCHASE JACKET

The word Ponte is derived from the phrase “Ponte Di Roma” which means “Roman Bridge.” It refers to the double knit design of this fabric which creates a mirror image so that the fabric looks the same on both sides. As a result of its double knit construction it resists wrinkles and creases, is very durable, it is soft and flexible while still holding its shape (it does not stretch out) and is firm enough to hold in and hide all of your extra baggage (if you get my drift). All in all it is the perfect fabric for fall and winter. Shop Posh at Play where we always have a great selection of women’s clothing.
