LWD: SHIRTDRESS + PLATFORMS SNEAKERS

0-1
A shirtdress is on my list of a well-rounded wardrobe, and I often recommend my clients add it to their dress rotation, (see my post on 6 essential summer dress styles here). While traveling in LA recently I picked a crisp white version at Cos in Beverly Hills. Please, please can SF get their own Cos soon! The Swedish brand is stocked with minimalist, chic pieces ideal for creating a daily uniform of updated classics.

The dress is a blank canvas that can be styled to read sporty, business, or even sexy, (just leave a few buttons open to let a black lacy bra peak out, and wear strappy heels).
I opted for platform sneaks in a dark flora print for a casual chic look. And added gold-tone star drop earrings and a glass cabochon white and black link bracelet to lend a subtle glamour to the clean cut-classic borrowed-from-the-boys style.

How will you style a shirtdress for summer? Please comment below.

STATEMENT MAXI DRESS: COMING UP POPPIES

Flower print maxi dress

Finding this vintage YSL jacket was a major coup. I love its utilitarian design, it’s a hero piece that can be paired with almost anything in my closet. And the burnt terracotta hue is truly unique! I’ve been wearing it primarily with all white ensembles, and at the last minute before this shoot threw it on over a maxi dress with an blown-up poppy flower print (this design would be fantastic as a print). I loved the combination both  are statement pieces but because each is spare in its line, I think they work together quite well.

I accessorized with a mix of bracelets in metal, wood and enamel. I wanted to complete the look with something around the face, but none of the earrings I tried seemed right. So I chose a vintage fascinator, the texture of the clustered beads has an organic aspect and echos the  flower motif of the dress. To ground this look I chose a wide strapped sandal.

Often my fave looks come together when trying new combinations on a whim.

SUMMER EDIT: SLIP DRESS + SLEEVELESS BLAZER

Summer Edit: Slip Dress + Sleeveless BlazerDress: Ralph Lauren | Blazer: Iris and Ink Skye | Necklace: Sasha Maks Vintage | Shoes: Aquazzura | Bag: The Row

My fave looks for a stylish summer are effortless, chic, with an eye toward the trends.  Two weeks ago I wrote about the six essential dress styles for summer and this week I show how I would style one of them.

I see my warm temps uniform as the perfect slinky slip dress, paired with a sleeveless blazer for a dose of sophistication, and a block heel sandal I an walk in all day.  Add an artfully mixed armful of bangles or a statement choker and this minimalist chic look will see me from 9 to 9 through the summer.

Share your go-to stylish summer looks in the comments.

MOVE OVER SKINNY JEANS: THE NEW SILHOUETTE EDIT

MOVE OVER SKINNY JEANS: THE HIGH-RISE STYLE EDIT

While my devotion to the skinny jeans has been formidable, lately I’ve been jonesing to expand my denim style palette. And I’ve added the boyfriend, and the high rise flares to my rotation. Recently,  I was fortunate to find two pairs of 9os Levi’s. They cinch me at near my true waist and have a slouchy fit from the hip down. Similar in fit to the mom style jeans all over street style blogs, these jeans have a wider leg.

Whatever the nomenclature–brother jean or high-rise boyfriend–it’s a much called for break from the tyranny of the sleek, hug-every-curve skinnies. Instead of  overemphasizing your bum, these styles will let you rediscover your waist, and lend an insouciant charm in their slouchy appeal. Check out my picks below and get ready for refresh your jeans wardrobe.

SUMMER DRESSES: 6 ESSENTIAL STYLES

 

Summer Dresses: 6 Essential Styles

 

What I love about summer is the ease of dressing, and one of the most chic ways to achieve it is by throwing on a dress. I’ve chosen six styles that will have all your sartorial trends covered during the warmer temps–the minimalist shirt dress, the gypset maxi, the 90s inspired slip dress, the retro shift, the sophisticated denim dress, and the effortless LWD (the little white dress). And by changing out a few accessories these versatile frocks will take you from day-to-night.

With so many different styles on offer you’re bound to find the perfect one, or two this summer!

MINI BAG SPRING PICKS

MINI BAG SPRING PICKS

While I love a large satchel, hobo or tote bag,  that offers the opportunity to haul your entire life around and be prepared for anything, the weight does get cumbersome, and I have the shoulder pain to prove it.

That’s why I’ve been delighted to see the mini bag trend going strong. The scaled down versions of our favorite bags offer the opportunity to assess what’s really essential to take with you. Do I need 3 lipsticks and 2 glosses? Probably not.  That’s why I’m embracing the mini bag trend and editing the contents of my bag without mercy. From buckets to satchels to flap bags, there’s a style for every taste. See my fave chic picks for spring below.

SPRING GINGHAM CHIC

Gingham pants

I’ve been on the look out for a gingham print piece, see my post on Spring Trend: How to Wear Gigham here,  expecting to find a vintage dress or top, but as luck would have it, spotted the perfect slim cropped pants at Zara.

A vintage embroidered Moroccan top and a enamel bead necklace with an intricate gold pattern add visual depth to the simple black and white palette. An off-white, straight cut blazer with leather lapels adds adds polish to the casual print.
Tasseled loafers and a drum shaped bag complete the retro chic vibe.

Are you ready to sport the retro-chic gingham trend for spring and summer?

EASY SPRING STYLE: LBD + DENIM

LBD and denim jacket

Originally published on Urban Darling.

An LBD is an obvious wardrobe essential, easy to dress up or down, and one of my fave is this vintage silk jersey dress with a turquoise floral trim, lending it a Pucciesque vibe. A denim jacket is another piece no modern closet can go without. To glam it up, just add statement jewelry, in this case arabesque shoulder dusters and chunky oval link bracelet.

How do you like to style your fave LBD? Please share in the comments.

70s REVIVAL: FLARES CHIC

Flare jeans for spring

Originally published on Urban Darling.

I’m thrilled to see the flare come back in such a big way! I must confess, though the skinny jeans silhouette will remain my go-to, I have been looking to more fuller styles to round out my jeans and pants rotation. I was lucky to find this medium light wash pair at first try at H&M, and even the length was perfect! And now I can put all my cropped and shorter length top to work with this high-waisted pair. To give the 70s style jeans a sophisticated twist, I topped off the ensemble with a fitted double-breasted blazer and added a hefty braided necklace for instant accessory drama.

Will you be rocking these trend for spring and summer? Please share in the comments.
