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!

Tea Time

There’s something magical about cool mornings, birds chirping and breezy afternoons that make Springtime so dreamy. If we were to write a fairytale, it would most definitely take place in a far-away land that is always in a state of Spring. We were able to harness that magical dreaminess in this Traffic People lace maxi dress. The sky blue slip is included so while this dress may look fragile and delicately placed, it’s a piece you can toss on and be transported to your favorite fairytale. Something about pastels and gold thread that sends you right into the pages of a storybook. We decided to compliment the airiness of the dress by keeping accessories and shoes in the same pastel color-family. For those chilly, Spring evenings, a soft knit cardigan or cropped denim jacket would fit in effortlessly with this look.

What Would Jane Do?

Hi Spring! The Minxies are thrilled you’ve arrived! The time has come for strolls in the park, outdoor picnics, riverside get-togethers, Easter celebrations, weddings galore- and so, so much more! And believe us, we are READY. Needing that staple piece to seamlessly guide you through all of your Springtime events? Two words: Susana Monaco. Now, if you’ve been with us for awhile this shouldn’t come as a surprise. We love the sturdy, yet extreme comfort of the fabric used in all her pieces. The fit is incomparable and these pieces are made to hold their shape through many, many wears. This lilac color is the epitome of Spring to us! Its pastel and bright, yet can still be styled as a neutral if that’s more of your color pallet. Grab a light layer for those crisp mornings and cooling breeze, and you’ll be totally set for whatever comes your way this season.

Red, Red Wall

Traffic People and their brand, designs, fits, and silhouettes never fail to absolutely blow us away. We appreciate how they effortlessly throw an edgy spin on an otherwise semi-predictable classic. Take the LBD (little black dress) for example. Classic and timeless. You can embody all the wonderful qualities of the LBD by incorporating an all-black color palette with the added interest of this beautiful bow detail and leather midi skirt. Leave it to Traffic People to challenge your style staples while still being completely approachable and chic. And what goes better with black head-to-toe than gold statement jewelry? When your outfit is all the same color or shade, you can really add some dimension with your accessories. Alexandra Scarlett utilizes shapes, patterns, and angles beautifully in her pieces which makes them stand-out. From the office to a night out – these elevate your look for any occasion.

Ark & WHOAH

Happy Spring! Monday was the official first day of Spring, but to be honest we have been enjoying the spring-like temperatures and showers for awhile. And with Spring officially among us comes Spring weddings, holidays, and special occasions. We love that this dress from Ark & Co seems to have the fresh buds of spring woven into every inch. This dress can stand alone at any outdoor get together and depending on shoes and accessories can easily be dressed up or down. We love the hint of metallic thread that catches the light (because trust us, you’re going to want to twirl in this one!)

Shift to Black

When in doubt, shifting back to those neutral tones and classic silhouettes can feel like the warm hug of familiarity and comfort! When using a neutral color pallet, feel free to experiment with new and different shapes and styles without feeling like you’re jumping too far out of the familiar. We fell in love with these square-toed slingback mules from Intentionally Blank, and while we no longer have them in store, this style is totally worth trying out! As much as we love trying new trends and styles, we appreciate Neuw Denim for keeping those classic looks in mind and we are thrilled to be getting more + more in the store from them (so keep your eyes peeled!)
