Follow Suit

Have you ever seen an outfit and immediately Rihanna comes on in your mind singing, “where have you been all my li-li-li-life?!” Because this is it for us. This top + bottom set from Very J encompasses everything we are loving this summer: resort-wear, tropical patterns, two-piece set, bow detail. Its got it all! Sometimes rompers can be tough in the summer and doesn’t always work for every body type and proportions. A two-piece set is a great alternative with similar vibes. Not feeling the sneakers? This would pair perfectly with gladiator sandals, or slip on flats. We recommend keeping the shoes and accessories minimal so that this set can shine! So when you think to yourself, W.W.R.D (What Would Rihanna Do?), she would most definitely get her hands on this set.

Tunnel Vision

The sneakers + dress trend: we officially are OBSESSED! This combo is perfect for summer and getting you from place to place without a lot of fuss. It appears that the “athleisure” trend is here to stay and while that doesn’t always translate to working at a boutique, for us this means finding ways to incorporate casual/athletic pieces with dresses and boutique fashion. This Paige dress perfectly fits into this trend. And we love simply changing up your shoes can create an entirely different vibe without having to put forth a lot of effort. Effortless is what we’re going for here. Have a dress you love and feel like it’s only good for weddings? Throw that on and pair it with your worn out sneakers, ankle socks, a denim jacket, some lapel pins and a backwards baseball cap and you are good-to-go! There’s your look. Have you experimented with the athleisure trend? We hope its here to stay!

Bye, Bye, Miss American Pie

Summertime is all about cookouts, lakeside vacations, fireworks, and a little USA pride! Memorial Day was earlier this week so why not continue the spirit and toss on some red, white, and blue?! Subtlety is key for holiday fashion. A red scarf or bandana is a classic homage to Americana imagery, while stall remaining on-trend! For maximum comfort, and staying on the classics theme, these vintage-inspired, denim skinnies from Neuw are absolutely perfect. And better yet, their fit and shape will last for many Summer celebrations to come!

Take a Bow

The floral shift dress is (or definitely should be!) a staple in every gals’ wardrobe. Its flirty and girly while still being adaptable to everyone’s personal style and flair. They can be dressed up with heels, or down with a denim jacket and sneakers. Its no secret the millions of wardrobe variations you can create with a floral dress and a little creativity. Feeling tired of your classic combos? Try different textures in the same color family. We love these velvet belt that can be tied in many different ways to suit the occasion. Adding some statement shoes, with some unexpected texture like faux fur or metal hardware, adds interest and changes up the entire vibe without my effort. Accessorizing is key for putting a new spin on your most beloved go-to pieces.

Seal the Deal

May has arrived! Summer is fast approaching, but we love getting to sit still and breathe in the Spring breeze just as much. Perfect for these transitional months are classic staples like this striped midi-dress from Monteau. Not only do we love the price point, but we love how effortlessly it can be incorporated into any style + look. This dress really is the perfect pallet for fine-tuning to your personal tastes. While these red Seychelles sandals add an element of drama and color to the look – we can totally see this with some great high top sneakers, classic black loafers, and anything in between.

Sea of Love

There’s something magical about mixing classic pieces into unexpected outfits. Here we put an edgy spin on your typical button-down blouse by pairing it with a mustard yellow crop-top and suede pencil skirt. Needing some wardrobe refresh? Take pieces that you already know flatter your shape and personal style, and find them in bright colors and patterns. This helps you to push the fashion envelope without completely abandoning your style identity. Texture is the name of the game this Spring, so we combined a knitted crop-top with a suede skirt, and finished it off with some furry slip-ons. Feeling daring with your color choices? Pick one piece to experiment with and keep the rest of the outfit neutral – this will help add drama without completely overwhelming you. Happy experimenting, friends!

Darling, So It Goes

Hi Minxies! We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend! We certainly did. We are soaking up every ounce of sunshine we can get and experimenting with different looks as we transition from colder months to a much warmer season. We love pairing this cropped leather jacket from Neuw with this breezy, easy-going floral shift dress. Having transitional looks and layering options are important while the weather is still unpredictable. And just because it’s Spring, it doesn’t mean that black and dark tones of our wardrobe are banished to the back of our closets to wait until October! Black is still an incredibly wearable color even in the hotter seasons. Bright florals, neons, and patterns stand out strikingly against a black fabrics. At Minx we hope to prepare you for even the most drastic weather shifts, with comfort and style being at the top of the priority list. XOXO!
