November 13th, 2015 by Samantha Weaver Get the “Cool Girl” Look

This season, it’s all about that effortless “cool girl” look and we really dig it. That means pile on all the plaid, fringe, hats (beanies or fedoras, please) and dark denim you can find.

Our Dark Denim Dress ($38.50) pairs perfectly with our Two-Tone Fedora ($20) and your favorite Chelsea boots. I’m getting a Jaglever vibe from this whole outfit.

You can never go wrong with plaid. Our Reversible Plaid & Herringbone Shawl ($25) is so versatile! Not only does it have two fall-ready prints, you can wear it as a scarf or button it down into a poncho. Amazing.

Fringe is a great way to add texture to any outfit. Try our Fringed Poncho Sweater ($26.50) paired with your favorite leather jacket.

Paired with all black accessories, our Cut-Out Midi Dress ($25) is the epitome of effortless cool. Add your favorite boots, a plaid scarf and that trendy suede jacket you just picked up.

September 25th, 2015 by Samantha Weaver Why We’re Wearing Dresses Over Pants This Fall

This week in fashion, a once not-so-loved trend came back to life—only this time, we can’t help but love it. Everyone from bloggers at LFW to celebrities at the Emmys picked up on wearing dresses over pants, and boy, are we glad they did. As far as we’re concerned, dresses over pants are rising to the top of our “must try” list for fall.

Channel Nicole’s matching set by pairing our Striped Shirt Dress ($32.50) with your favorite gingham trousers. Tip: Belting your dress is a great way to create a silhouette on shift or smock dresses.

Kiernan Shipka’s Dior ensemble rocked the red carpet at last week’s Emmy Awards. Dior’s youthful take on the dress over pants look is fun both in its choice of color and length. To recreate Kiernan’s look, we chose a shorter herringbone dress and paired it with leather-paneled trousers.

The look I want to try most is a dress over flared denim. Here, I’ve paired our Floral Bell-Sleeved Mini Dress ($32.50) with my favorite pair of bell bottoms for an instant ’70s vibe.

The dress over pants movement looks especially good in monochromatic tones. White on white has been a big player in this trend (made famous by Kendall Jenner in The Row), so here I chose light-washed denim pieces in oversized cuts to create a casual weekend look.

Do you think you’ll try this trend this fall?
