September 30th, 2019 by Samantha Furno 5 Fall Trends that are Totally 90’s

There is no denying that the 90’s were a decade in fashion that will truly never be forgotten. This past summer, we saw quite a few nostalgic trends popping up (i.e. bucket hats & singlet tanks) and now that fall is in full swing, we can fully expect to see even more trends inspired by this eclectic decade! I, for one, am super excited to add some 90’s inspired pieces and trends to my cooler weather wardrobe! I’ve rounded up some of my favorite 90’s inspired trends that I have been seeing on Instagram lately and I have a feeling that these looks will inspire you to add some throwback flair to your fall fits!

Longline Jacket

From head to toe, this look is totally reminiscent of the 90’s! Longline leather jackets were a must-have layering piece back then and this chic and functional silhouette is definitely making a comeback for fall 2019.woman wearing 90's style long printed jacket.

September 16th, 2019 by Samantha Furno Could Leather be the Textile of the Season?

When it comes to seasonal textiles, leather is sure to come to mind for the fall season. Let’s be honest; could it get more classic than a moto jacket?! Although this textile itself may not be entirely groundbreaking, what is groundbreaking is the many ways in which we are seeing leather worn this fall season! Leather jackets will always be a cooler weather staple and a quick way to step up the chic-factor of any outfit, but this F/W19 is all about incorporating other, unique, silhouettes into your wardrobe! Whether you like to keep it faux or prefer the real thing, here are a few ways to to try the trend out yourself and instantly elevate your style game, one leather piece at a time!

Not-so-Basic Button Down

Leather is a great way to add structure to your fits, so why not swap out your go-to, tailored button down for something a bit bolder in style!

Feminine, yet Edgy

Colored faux leather is already eye-catching, but wearing a sweet minidress in this textile is a sure fire way to kick your style up a notch!

Bye Bye, Denim

I love a good denim alternative and these tailored to take you from the desk to dinner!

September 10th, 2019 by Jennifer Beile 7 Street Style Trends to Adopt From NYFW

Due to the power and influence of social media, street style has become the upmost authority on fashion trends. New York Fashion Week is the epitome of influencers, models, and industry insiders showcasing their personal style, and in some ways, has become more affluent than the runways themselves. I personally look forward to the street style photos more than the designer collections during fashion week. It may be because seeing trends in action, on real people, and styled in a more approachable everyday way helps me to visualize how I might wear it, whereas the runway is more of a fantasy. See all the best street style trends to adopt that have come out of NYFW Spring 2020.

Feminine Details

Lace, ruffles and other feminine details are being seen as accents across all a range of styles.

Matching Sets

Matching sets, whether it suiting or separates, have been a popular choice lately, from vibrant colors to traditional prints.

Monochromatic From Head to Toe

From bold colors to minimalistic and neutral, monochromatic outfits from head to toe have been seen all over the streets of New York.

Comfort Friendly Footwear

Sneakers continue to reign supreme and show no signs of stopping. From completing glam looks to pulling together a casual chic look, a pair of sneakers will be your most versatile footwear this season.

Baby Doll Dresses
