Graphic tees and cardigans are all the talk this season. It is the perfect mix of laid-back and trendy, and so versatile!   Start this outfit with the Charlie Southern Santa Tee in Red.  We are all about sayings tees during the holidays, so you don’t want to miss out on this super cute t-shirt.  The graphic tee is layered under the ever-stylish Miracle Clothing Duster Cardigan in Beige.  The best part about oversized cardigans is that you feel as if you are wrapped up in a warm blanket, but it is perfectly acceptable and stylish to go out in public!  Next up, you will need to grab a pair of classic denim jeans.  We chose the Cello High Rise Skinny Jeans that provide comfort and practicality. Finish off this look with the Soda Shoes Toasty Combat Boots and a CC Beanie PomPom Hat!

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.

3 Reasons to Love Cold Shoulder Tops

Get your finger on the pulse of one of spring’s hottest fashions: cold shoulder tops.

You’ve probably been noticing exposed shoulders popping up in all of your favorite stores and while you may still be on the fence about why you should dare to bare, here are three reasons why you should take the risk.

3 Reasons to Love Cold Shoulder Tops

  1. You don’t have to bare it all.

Open shoulder tops are a happy medium between completely baring your shoulders and keeping covered up all spring. Plus, this style of top doesn’t require fussing with a strapless bra and you can still comfortably wear a cami underneath.

  1. It’s a high fashion trend that translates into real life.

There are times when Fashion Week hits, insanely hot styles are shown on the runway, and then we all think to ourselves, “How the heck (or where on earth) would I wear that?” Cold shoulders are a welcomed exception to this fashion conundrum.

  1. This silhouette has staying power.

Trends come and go but that is no reason to shy away from buying a cold shoulder shirt. If you’re focused on building a better wardrobe and shying away from fast fashion pieces, a cold shoulder top is still a piece to consider investing in because they have been (and will continue) to show up season after season.

Denim Fit Guide- Finding the Perfect Fit

Raise your hand if you dread shopping for jeans!

If you could see me now, you’d see that I have both hands up. Don’t get me wrong, I love shopping but shopping for jeans is my least favorite thing to do. With so many different fits and washes, a girl can easily get overwhelmed and feel defeated. However, blue jeans will always remain a yearlong wardrobe staple, so finding a pair that flatters your figure is definitely important. To lessen your frustration when shopping this season, I’ve put together a denim fit guide.

If you’re petite…

Denim Fit Guide Jeans for Petite Body

If you have a small frame and shorter legs, I suggest that you invest in a pair of skinny jeans. A skinny cut will not only flatter your shape, but it will give the illusion of lengthening your legs! Bonus! I love the Flying Monkey Premium Medium Wash Skinny for petite girls. I personally deal with the short girl struggle, and I love that these Flying Monkeys can be easily rolled and cuffed to my liking.

If you’re curvy…

Curvy girls should rock jeans that show off their curves in all the right places. Don’t shy away from jeans that hug your figure, just make sure that they highlight your best assets and flatter your not-so-favorite features. For a curvy girl, Silver Suki jeans are the way to go. Personally, I love the Silver Jeans Suki Mid Rise Skinny. These Silver jeans have a well-defined curve from the waist to the hip and the dark wash provides a slimming effect.

If you’re athletic…

Denim Fit Guide Jeans for Athletic Body Type

It’s all about creating curves! Girls with toned, athletic bodies are a lucky bunch but when choosing a flattering pair of jeans, it is important to balance out a boyish silhouette. This balance can be found by choosing a pair of flared jeans. I’m slightly obsessed with the Flying Monkey Jeans Dark Wash Flare. These jeans will be fitted around your thighs and rear, but more relaxed in the calf and ankle areas.

Your best bet for finding a pair of jeans that you love, and look good on you, is to try on different styles and see what you feel most comfortable in. No matter your body type, I hope that after reading my denim fit guide you can now confidently shop for denim without second guessing yourself. Honestly girls, a pair of jeans that legitimately flatters your figure will always be in style, even while other trends come and go.

How to Wear a Shirt Tied Around Your Waist

The 90’s called. And they had some great fashion advice! Who knew that part of the grunge trend would be revived in fashion trends we see today? We always hear that fashion repeats itself, and it is obvious that 90’s fashions are coming back in a big way. This summer we saw crop tops, high-waisted shorts, and plaid apparel integrating their way into our wardrobes. One of the hottest 90’s grunge-inspired trends this season is the shirt tied around the waist.

Button-up shirt

Shirt tied around your waist

There are not too many rules when it comes to wearing the around-the-waist shirt wrap. However, we have some tips and guidelines that will allow you to look your best. The first rule of thumb when sporting this look is to choose a button-down shirt with arms long enough to tie around your waist. This is when your boyfriend’s wardrobe could come in handy! An oversized button-down plaid or flannel shirt works best.

The button-up shirt doesn’t always have to be flannel or plaid. The shirt-around-the-waist look doesn’t have to portray a super casual look either. If you look, you will see celebrities wearing everything from plaid shirts to leather jackets around their waists. They also do a great job of bringing otherwise casual wear to effortless chic and polished looks. Celebrities and other fashionistas have been spotted pairing leather and heels with button-up shirts.

Since the 90’s revival of fashion first appeared on the runway, celebrities had the upper hand with jumping on this trend first. Here are some celebrity spottings:

How to Wear Flats in the Fall

The weather may be getting cooler, but there are many different ways to wear flats year round. Let us show you how to wear flats in the fall.

Jessica Simpson Flats

Flats are fun and totally acceptable to wear in autumn. You can pair your flats with your casual outfits and look stunning. We have styled our Jessica Simpson Mikia flats with a graphic sweatshirt and destructed skinny jeans. The studded flats and style of clothing give off a rocker chick vibe. This outfit would be fun to wear to work, school, or during your weekend outings.

If you want to boost the style of a casual outfit, try cuffing the bottom hem of your jeans. Here we have paired another casual layered ensemble with the Jessica Simpson Mandalaye Ballet Flats. These flats are not a typical pair of flats because they resemble actual Ballet Pointe Shoes. Wearing these Jessica Simpson shoes will definitely put a very stylish, yet feminine twist on your casual fall outfit.

Summer may be over, but don’t put away your decorated flats! They can also be worn into the fall. For example, these Jessica Simpson Milee Flats have a lovely bow that adds a soft touch to an outfit. Bow flats or other decorated flats are easy to dress up, so they pair nicely with dresses or other dressy attire. Too chilly for a dress? Add leggings to transition both your flats and dresses to a cooler season.

Other styles of bottoms that can be worn with flats include colored denim and flared or bell bottom pants. If you wear colored denim jeans or pants, make sure you choose a pair of flats that will compliment the jean color. If you have busy patterns and prints on your pants, you will want to avoid flats that will clash with the patterns.
