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.

Our textile-inspired knit dress brings the style of Cuban architecture into a practical lifestyle. Want to accentuate tropical flare? Pair with our beaded tassel necklaces, inspired with native orange beads. A complimentary orange wallet further emphasizes the bright orange color so commonly associated with Cuban flare.

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.
