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 tradition 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:

Simple. Hats are perfect for those 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!

 Transitioning Your Bralette for Fall

Burgundy Piko with braletteLook by M Cardigan with braletteRaise your hand if you’re obsessed with bralettes? I know I am! I own them in about 5 different colors and layer them under all my basic tops. I’m a bralette junkie!

The bralettes started with the original basic racerback and now they are expanding with multiple different necklines and back details. Over the summer, these bralettes were layered under tanks or our favorite Piko tops showing off the lace and criss cross cage detailing. Being a huge supporter of this trend, we want to see it continue into fall. Check out the different ways we have layered our bralettes for fall.

The Halter Bralette

We have styled our halter lace bralette in a beautiful blush color under a burgundy V-neck Piko sweater. The lace on this halter pops out just around the neckline of this sweater giving it an elegant look that everyone will love.  This is the perfect look for those cozy Sundays when you want to look cute but don’t feel like getting out of bed!

The Racerback Bralette

We took our olive racerback bralette and layered it under a black Z Supply tee. This is a trend we saw a lot over the summer. To transition this look for fall, we layered it with a chunky cardigan from Look by M. Again, an effortless look that is perfect for those lazy days that you just want to stay warm and be cozy.

Moto Leggings: Trend to Try

These bottoms fit like leggings, but give the illusion of real pants. Yes, please.

Both comfortable and on-trend, moto leggings pass the leggings-as-pants test because of one thing: the details. There are ribbed panels above each knee and zippers at the ankles, giving these pants an edgy but still very wearable look.

Moto pants will elevate any outfit, no matter how casual. Keep scrolling to see how we’re wearing moto-inspired leggings this season.

Moto Pants + Z Supply

We paired our olive green moto pants with a faux suede Z Supply tee and black ankle bootswomens moto pantsHitting right about the ankle, these pants are the perfect length to wear with short boots.

Moto Leggings + Freeloader

This is the outfit you’ll never want to take off (and I don’t blame you). This Freeloader clothing cardigan is made with a tiger brush fabric that is cozier than cozy. We had to throw another Z Supply tee underneath because they are just that comfy.

Trend Alert: Frayed Jeans

Western Bootie
Fray is the New Fringe

The past few seasons the fringe trend has been a huge hit! Adding a twist to the fringe world, they have added fringe denim, which is known as released hem, raw hem, or even frayed jeans.  The frayed hem doesn’t stop at the jeans. We are seeing frayed shorts, skirts and tops too. The released hem trend isn’t just made on a skinny jean either, but also on a flared denim. One of our favorite brands, Flying Monkey, came out with a cropped skinny jean that features a raw hem and are a must have staple piece for this season!

Rules of the Frayed Jeans:

  1. The frayed hem should hit right at or above the ankle.
  2. Wear your raw hem jeans with pointy pumps, strappy sandals, ballet flats, casual sneakers, or ankle boots.
  3. Only wear one or two raw hem peices at a time, too much fraying could be an overkill.

Frayed Jeans

We paired our released hem Flying Monkey Jeans with an Elan Fringe Sweater giving this outfit the double fray look. Keeping up with all of the trends this season, we layered our sweater over a Criss-Cross Neck Tee. And topping off our look, we paired our raw hem jeans with our Volatile Haisley Western Ankle Bootie to show off that frayed hem.

Fall Fashion Finds Under $50

fall fashion under $50

Another season, another chance to vamp up your wardrobe!

With the official beginning of fall coming in a few short weeks, it’s time to find pieces you’ll want to wear all season long. Thankfully, bringing new life to your closet doesn’t mean you have to break the bank. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite must-have pieces that are all under $50. Feel free to do a little happy dance.

It’s time to bust out the booties! There are two major factors to consider when buying a new pair of ankle boots: color and comfort. Taupe, black, and brown are three colors that you’ll get a ton of wear out of this season and next.

As the temperatures drop, you’ll need a good pair of jeans in your rotation. KanCan Jeans are not only affordable, but they also fit like a dream! At only $39 for most styles, consider adding a pair of mid-rise and low-rise  skinnies to your denim collection.

Nothing says fall fashion like a Piko top! There are so many colors and styles to choose from at Glik’s, but this burgundy tunic is one of my favorites for autumn.

Is it really even fall if you’re not wearing a vest? My all time favorite quilted vests are from Thread and Supply. The quality of these vests is amazing for the price point and the selection of colors makes it impossible to choose just one!

 It’s not all about bundling up this season, especially at the start. I love this olive green dress from Blu Pepper. The lace up neckline is perfectly on-trend, plus it’s a style steal at only $39.

Lastly, accessories are just as important as your outfit itself. My favorites for fall include CC Beanies, a cute plaid scarf, a lace bralette, and a black choker necklace. Any of of theses pieces will instantly elevate your #ootd.

How to Style Your Piko Dresses for Fall

As the weather changes so will your wardrobe. It’s time to pack up the tank tops and shorts, and pull out the sweaters and boots. One thing I don’t want to pack up though are my dresses! I love dresses and I am always trying to find ways to style them for the fall. I’ve taken our favorite Piko Swing Dress and styled it three different ways for fall.

Layer it with a blanket scarf

If you don’t have a Piko dress in your closet, I recommend changing that immediately. Piko dresses are so simple and go perfectly with just about anything. When it comes to layering, Piko dresses will be your go to item. Throw a jacket or vest over your dress for a comfortable but yet flattering look. I’ve layered my striped Piko dress with a plaid blanket scarf. Don’t be afraid to mix your prints!

Tie it together with a plaid shirt

Plaid is the must have staple piece for fall. You can never have too many plaid button down shirts!  There are many different ways to wear a plaid shirt, you can layer it under a vest, wear it open with a V-neck tee or tie it around your waist with a dress. I took a solid color Piko Dress and tied a plaid shirt around my waist to add a pop of color to my outfit. Some would call this outfit the tomboy look, but I’ve paired it with peep toed booties for a sassier look. Trade out those booties for a pair of Converse to rock the Tomboy look!

Accessories can really make an outfit pop! I’ve taken one of my Piko Tops, this time Army Green, and added some of my favorite accessories to compete the perfect outfit for a Saturday night! Top this Piko Dress off with a hat, a long necklace, and booties for a simple look that everyone will love.Army Green Piko Dress
