Styles

Cardigans

The cardigan is a great casual sweater that can be thrown over any ensemble with ease. From layering a lightweight cardigan, to bundling up in a cozy knit, this sweater comes in a variety of styles and materials. 

Check out some of our cardigans available in-store and online.

Oversized

The bigger the better. A sophisticated boho-chic oversized sweater can be paired with anything, especially skinny pants, jeans, or skirts is a to-die-for fall trend.

Oversized sweaters are self-explanatory and incredibly chic. Try our Paper Crown Vancouver Sweater paired with our Philadelphia Wash High Rise Skinny Jeans and our Jahida Booties to create a simple, chic look, perfect for the fall season. 

Knits

 Cashmere

Though not exactly a "knit type", any sweater guide would not be complete without a mention of cashmere. This timeless material is not only extremely soft, but also keeps the wearer warm while not adding any additional bulk. 

Knit

Knit fabric is one of the most standard variations there is. The stretchiness of the fabric is ideal for sweaters and knitted garments, making it easy to wear and maintain. 

Cable Knit

                                                                                                For extra warmth, a cable knit sweater is the way to go. The knit's distinctive cable adds texture to an ensemble, making it instantly chic and trendy. These sweaters tend to be more chunky than other knits, and they complement skinny jeans or any fitted bottoms nicely.

Ribbed

 

For a more subtle look than cable knit, you can opt for a ribbed sweater, which has just the right texture without the excess bulk.

The Power of White

Tracy BrentComment

White on White: How to style this white hot look!

Forget the antiquated no-white-before-Memorial-Day rule, and swap out your dark winter hues for this season's all-white trend. This look instantly adds and elegant and sophisticated vibe to any outfit. 

 

Pairing a fancy top with a pair of jeans instantly makes the outfit more casual and wearable. Pair the outfit with your favorite sunglasses, and you're ready to face the season in a fresh way. Purchase a similar look with our LAmade "Ero" muscle tee paired with our Ecru "Buckley" skinny ankle jean, for a look that is instantly chic and incredibly unique.

 

It is undeniable that an all-white outfit is an incredibly bold look. To successfully follow the trend in a more subtle manner, look to add a pop of color.  A pop of color in an all-white ensemble always adds a bit of a spark. Incorporating color through jewelry, shoes, or a handbag is a perfect way to add a pop of excitement to your all-white outfit, and make it all the more wearable. 

 

 

 

Wearing a colorful shoe, paired with our reversible, magenta Tote  and bold, colorful jewelry such as our Happy necklace, you'll make your all-white ensemble more put together, sophisticated, and incredibly chic. 

 

The white-on-white look may seem intimidating to some. However, there are ways to incorporate this fresh trend into your wardrobe, without taking a huge fashion risk!

Wearing a light, predominantly white dress, top, or skirt paired with subtle accessories embraces the all-white trend in a more subtle manner. Wearing a dress like our Paper Crown Danbury Dress, pictured below, with our Raine Clutch embraces the light, airy trend without going overboard. 

 

Similarly, pairing a white-based, patterned top with a pair of white jeans creates a summery, playful ensemble. Experiment with this look with our Ecru Troubadour Blouse  paired with a pair of  our James Jeans Twiggy Frost Leggings. Accessorize  lightly, and let the power of white do the talking.

Obviously, the white-on-white look is not as intimidating as it looks. Grab your favorite white jeans, and get matching! 

The Cuban Effect

Tracy BrentComment

Bold colors and patterns are having a moment. Energize your wardrobe with the eccentricity of Cuban flare!

Greetings from Havana

Wondering where these unique stylistic choices found their inspiration? Click on the images below to take a tour through Cuba to understand the origins of the trend.

Vibrant pastels, textile patterns, and flowing frills can be traced back to Cuban history. 

Note the architectural design setting the tone in Havana. The heat of the tropics gives way to flowing materials and lightweight garments. Look back on the historic members who set the iconic look into motion, such as Cuban religious heroine, Our Lady of Regla (pictured above in traditional wear). 


Think this look is too bold for everyday wear? Think again!

Trends influenced directly from the "Paris of the Caribbean" can be incorporated into everyday wear, and we'll show you how Cuba's inspired us!

 Vibrant colors make a statement for themselves. In cases like these, let the dress do the talking. When wearing a bold color or print, it should be the focus of the outfit. Pair with contrasting colors to let it stand out, as shown with our  neon pink dress , a basic white scarf and subtle accessories.   Or, draw a color out of the look and let that be the centerpiece. This ties the pieces together to create a statement. Try the look with our  multipatterned flare dress  and matching  pink overcoat . A more subtle look can be achieved through matching smaller accessroies, such as statement earrings or a clutch.

Experiment with Colors

Tracy BrentComment

Fall can be so predictable and yet such a great season to experiment with new and old trends. Use the foliage as an inspiration to incorporate some surprisingly fashionable colors into your outfit. Bright colors are always a fun way to express yourself and as we move closer to winter you're resisting the urge to be consumed by dark colors. Here are some ideas to get you started.

Neon Yellow & Navy

Take your navy jackets and give them a pop with a neon color undershirt.

Hot Pink & Grey

You'll make a bold and yet feminine statement.

Teal & Black

Pink isn't your thing? Try a making your outfit pop with a cooler shade of color like teal.

Cream & Red

Don't forget about the shoes! If you're a shoe lover you might want to switch into a bright colored pair you'd normally wear in the summer.
