March 25th, 2019 by Samantha Furno Spring Trend Alert: Tie-Dye Is Officially Back

Springtime always brings about brighter and cheery hues in the fashion world, but how do you feel about adding some groovy tie-dye to your wardrobe line-up this season? It is no secret that tie-dye is a major trend right now! We’ve been seeing a revival of this 70’s pattern on and off the runways, proving that tie dye is no longer a blast from the past. Tie-dye in 2019 is definitely more elevated; think sophisticated fabrics, modern silhouettes and chic color combos! Bold colors and carefree patterns make tie dye the perfect way to switch up those spring pastels in your wardrobe. Whether you opt to incorporate this trend in an accessory or even an entire frock, there is no denying that tie dye will add a hint of childhood nostalgia to your outfits.

The beautiful thing about this trend is that it is totally obtainable. We are seeing tie-dye in spring and summer lookbooks across the board, making it a simple pattern to shop around for, but you can also head to your local craft store, purchase some dye and rubber bands and try your hand at creating your own tie dyed styles as well. I’ve rounded up some awesome ways we have seen the tie-dye trend styled for spring that will make you want to try this psychedelic trend for yourself!

Elevated but Fun

High-end designers can’t get enough of the tie-dye trend this spring either! This gorgeous Proenza Schouler turtleneck is not for the faint of heart, but it is definitely enough to make any fashionista swoon!

Move Over Spring Florals

Tie-Dye is the perfect pattern to wear in place of spring’s typical patterns! Just look at how feminine and fun this dreamy pastel-hued dress is!

As Classic as this Trend Gets!

March 19th, 2019 by Jennifer Beile Round-Up: How to Pull Off the Neon Trend

Now that the weather has begun to heat up, it’s time to talk about the hottest and more daring trend of the season: neon. I’ve typically shied away from vibrant and saturated colors, but in the last year,  I have found myself experimenting with more colors that I’ve probably worn in my life; From neutrals to pastels and neon! Adding bold colors can have an empowering effect and wearing it with confidence will boost your mood and prevent you from feeling like a fluorescent highlighter.

Be Subtly Brazen

Subtle neon details and accents are an easy way to test the waters of the loud color trend.

Pair With Muted Shades

Tone down the volume of a neon piece by pairing it with a neutral, muted color like beige or brown.

Bold Basics

Incorporate neon into your staple outfits with basic pieces, such as tees or pullovers, excluding print if it’s too loud for you.

Dare to go Head to Toe

Feeling especially vivacious? Combine complementary neon colors into one outfit for a head turning look.

Focus on Prints

The print of a neon piece will split the focus of the bold color and create a calmer look without erasing the excitement.

March 18th, 2019 by Samantha Furno Transitional Styling 101: Winter to Spring

After those long and polarizing winter months we’ve just experienced, I couldn’t be more excited that sunny days are up ahead! Mark your calendars because next week, March 20th to be exact, marks the first day of spring!
Spring sure is beautiful with its fresh blooms and bright skies; however the weather is still quite unpredictable at times, making it a bit difficult to whip out those sundresses and tank tops just yet. That’s why I’ve come up with a simple list of wardrobe essentials that will help make the transition between the seasons both an easy and stylish one for your wardrobe!

 

Knee-High Boots

Those knee-high boots that you wore all winter long with skinny jeans are perfect for throwing on with a short and flirty dress this spring season. They will instantly elevate any outfit you pair them with, not to mention they are an innovative way to keep your legs warm too!

The Classic Blazer

Blazers are great for adding a hint of sophistication to your outfits, plus they are typically pretty lightweight making them ideal for springtime layering. I am just loving how Celeste paired her Crossroads blazer over a feminine maxi dress for the perfect transitional look! Talk about a #Crossroadsfind!

Wide-Leg Denim

70’s inspired and totally chic, wide leg denim is a transitional staple you can count on for year-round wear. These jeans are great for throwing on with a simple tee and heels for a spring outing with friends!

Cozy Sweaters

Don’t put away your cozy winter sweaters just yet! Switch things up and try wearing your favorite sweater with a lightweight and an a-line spring skirt for a chic and romantic flair! Just add a pair of cute heels and fun jewelry and you’ll be set!
