December 17th, 2019 by Jennifer Beile Five Textures to Add to Your Winter Wardrobe

‘Tis the season to play with textures within your wardrobe. The extra layering pieces that are required during the colder weather allows us to experiment with mixing textures and fabrics more than the simple outfits we tend to put together in the heat. If you’re growing tired of throwing on the same sweater and jeans combo, add a bit of flair to your winter wardrobe with textures, whether mixed together or as an added element to your style, texture is an easy way to refresh your winter wardrobe blues.

Shearling, Sherpa, & Faux Fur

When those temperatures plummet, we yearn for comfort. A casual sherpa pullover or a luxurious faux fur coat will keep you toasty and stylish this winter.

Chunky Cable Knit Sweaters

It’s sweater weather and adding the cable knit variety to your collection adds just the right amount of edge to your otherwise traditional look.

Don’t Count out Corduroy

A blast from the past, corduroy is unapologetic and easier to wear than you may think. Style them like you would your favorite denim or trousers.

Smooth as Velvet

The luxe fabric has recently become more acceptable for not only day wear, but year around wear. Swap out your favorite LBD for a smooth velvet dress or reinvigorate your blazer collection with a velvet blazer over your favorite tee and jeans combo.

Sequins for Sparkle & Shine

If it’s tacky to love sequins, then call me tacky because I don’t think you should go through the holiday season without at least one dramatic sparkly and shiny look!

December 16th, 2019 by Samantha Furno Take These 5 Trends into the New Year

It’s crazy to think that another year is almost over and we are about to enter a whole new decade! 2020 will surely bring us a plethora of new trends, but there are quite a few trends from 2019 that will be easy to carry over into the new year as well! Whether you love them of hate them, here are five noteworthy style trends that have been relevant this past year and  that are worth incorporating into your 2020 style queue.

Neon

Bright and bold, neon colors are here to stay and will be more relevant than ever in 2020! Neon green made itself known in the wardrobes of many fashionistas this past year, but the new year brings an opportunity to explore other hues, such as an eye-catching orange or a flirty fuchsia!

Oversized Blazers

Personally I am very excited that this trend is being carried over into 2020. Oversized and tailored, your favorite suit jacket is going to continue to be your go-to layering piece!

Combat Boots

Combat boots began trending at the start of summer 2019 and this trend has been relevant ever since! 2020 proves that the chunkier the better when it comes to this utilitarian trend!

Puffy Sleeves

Puffy sleeves added a hint of romance and femininity to our 2019 wardrobes and this whimsical trend is going to be incredibly popular as winter changes to spring!

Leather

Leather has been an unlikely textile of choice this past year, especially for fall and winter, and it’s being forecasted that leather styles are a must-have for 2020!
