Criss Cross Tops and Dresses |All about that Neck(line)|

The terms “lace up” or “criss cross” may cause you to immediately think of lingerie or a risqué Halloween costume, but a strappy neckline doesn’t have to be intimidating (or a look reserved for night time). This trend is something you can work into your every day wardrobe. In some cases, it’s even suitable for work.

Criss Cross Tops

criss cross tops

A criss cross neckline add a subtle, slightly rebellious, detail that elevates even the most basic pieces. One of our favorite criss cross tees is available here in multiple colorways and sleeve lengths.

You’ll want to add a few (or three or four) to your wardrobe ASAP.

Bralettes

criss cross bralettesA criss cross bralette can be paired with a v-neck or lower scoop neck top so the strappy piece peeks out at the neck and amps up the overall look.

Criss cross bralettes also work well with off the shoulder shirts. Not only do they add a little extra coverage if you don’t want to completely bare your shoulder, but it also adds an element of edge to your outfit.

 

LACE UP DRESSES

lace up dressesAnother way to rock a detailed neckline is a lace up or criss cross dress. A dress with a trendy neckline eliminates the need for a necklace, but can be paired with a choker necklace for extra style points.

How will you wear criss cross tops and lace up dresses this season?

It’s Sweater Weather Y’all

elan-cold-shoulder-sweater-gray-sw1506There is something about fall and the weather changing that just makes us want to dress for the season. Maybe it’s the leaves on the ground or the chili mornings that makes us wake up and sip on our hot coffee. Either way, we will most likely be wearing a sweater!

This year it is all about the chunky, oversized sweaters. Stay trendy this season by trying different necklines with your sweaters. Some of our favorite necklines this year include cowl, turtleneck, keyhole, and crisscross. Another trend that is hot this season is the cold shoulder and off the shoulder look. Although it’s not ideal for the colder weather, it is an adorable look that you just can’t pass up!

The Chunky Sweaterunspecified

The bigger the better! We all have our favorite sweaters and a chunky sweater is mine! Something about the oversized fit that just makes wearing chunky cable knit sweaters that much more comfortable. These oversized sweaters are perfect for pairing with your favorite skinny jeans. Take comfy to an extreme and wear it with leggings this season! Stay trendy and try a little half tuck in the front of your skinny jeans for a chic look that shows off the waist definition.

The Cowl Neck Sweatercarys-fringe-sweater

Sometimes the big chunky sweaters aren’t for everyone! You can always try a lightweight sweater that features different necklines. One of my favorite necklines is the cowl neck. The cowl neck is loose and breathable which is the perfect mix of laid-back and trendy.

The Cold Shoulder Sweaterelan-cold-shoulder-life-sw1210-charcoal

Don’t let the cold stop you from being trendy this season! Cold shoulder tops are a hot item this year and they have now made it in a sweater. My favorite cold shoulder sweater this year is from Elan. It features a lightweight knit material that is flowy making the perfect fit for anyone! Cold shoulder sweaters are perfect for the transition from season to season. Add one to your closet TODAY!

Trend Alert: Sherpa Pullovers and Vests

Sherpa for men and womenFALL IN LOVE WITH SHERPA

Dylan by True Grit

Introducing the item of the year from True Grit Clothing: sherpa Pullovers and Vests! These pullovers and vests are to die for! The ultra-plush fabric is perfect for the colder weather heading our way. The main question we receive about these hot items are regarding the sizing and the difference between True Grit and Dylan.

True Grit:

Built for men. True Grit pullovers are crafted with a squared hem and side slits. These men’s pullovers have an oversized fit and are perfect for layering. When men purchase True Grit pullovers, we recommend ordering their true size. For women ordering a True Grit pullover, we recommend ordering down one size for the perfect, slightly oversized fit.

Dylan by True Grit:

Dylan is the women’s brand made by True Grit clothing. The women’s Dylan pullovers have a slimmer fit and also feature side slits. Made in U.S. women’s sizing instead of junior’s, these pullovers are cut with an oversized construction. We recommend ordering your true size in these pullovers to receive the desired fit.

Trend Alert | Women’s Baseball Hats

The baseball hat trend for women is on fire! We are seeing women’s baseball hats everywhere and in many different styles. Ditch the traditional baseball hat! It’s time to pick up a leather or suede baseball hat!

Kaitlyn Bristowe Baseball Hat
A few weeks ago Kaitlyn Bristowe from the Bachelorette posted a picture of herself in a leather baseball hat and I instantly thought to myself “I HAVE to get one of those!”

How to wear your baseball hats:

It’s simple. Hats are perfect for bad hair days or days that you are just running late! Pull your hair back into a low pony, throw on a hat and call it a day!  Some days, you just wake up feeling a little bit trendier than the day before and want to wear a leather or suede hat! Add some soft curls under your hat, put on your favorite color of lipstick and show the day who’s boss!

What to wear with your baseball hats:

Honestly, anything! There aren’t rules to wearing a baseball hat. Dress your baseball hat up or down, either way you will make that hat look good 😉

I have taken my faux leather and faux suede baseball hats and paired them with a few of my favorite outfits.

Simple baseball hats look

The simple look:

You can’t go wrong adding a black suede baseball hat to your hat collection. This hat will match just about anything. I’ve paired it with one of my favorite Z Supply Faux Suede Pocket Tees and Kancan Jeans. To top this outfit off, I added a pair of heeled booties.

The edgy baseball hats look

The CHIC look:

This leather hat will add a little bit of glam to your outfits. I paired my faux leather hat with a  black and floral bomber jacket. To complete this chic look, I paired it with classic Converse shoes.

The comfy baseball hats look

The comfy look:

An easy outfit that never fails: jeans, a graphic tee, a baseball a hat and sneakers. Adding a braid under your hat is always a good option. This casual outfit and hair combo is perfect for those relaxing evenings with your besties!
