Make A Day of It

We hear it all the time – “I’m not a hat girl.” Or “I can ONLY wear skinny jeans.” Or “I just don’t want to draw attention to myself.” We understand having a reliable uniform and we understand the comforting feeling of wardrobe staples and go-to’s. In fact, they are an incredibly important part of building personal style. At the same time, its also easy to box ourselves into a comfort zone and start giving ourselves fashion rules that let us get away with self-deprecating thoughts and mantras. At Minx, we love gently encouraging our customers, and OURSELVES, to try something they never have (or have before and weren’t feeling at the time!) and start challenging these self-imposed fashion rules with empowerment being the ultimate goal. So –  toss on a hat, try out a bold print, or come grab that white button-down you’ve been eyeing that will always fit just right. Either way – we are here and we are in your corner!

From the Archives: Relax Into Boyfriend Jeans

We’ve pulled one of our favorite summer posts from the archives because a look this good deserves a second chance! Check out “Relax Into Boyfriend Jeans” from August 2014 below:

boyfriend_jean North Carolina’s summer spell is upon us. 

The past few days have been the hottest yet and we find ourselves desiring  our easiest outfits. As the temperature rises, comfort takes top spot on our priority list. Try pulling on skinny jeans in the late August heat, and you’ll agree, something more relaxed is calling your name.

So, we’re welcoming back our favorite boyfriend jeans from Level 99. The perfect (and oh so comfortable) alternative to your go-to skinnies. 

Level 99 Boyfriend JeansBoasting a vibe as relaxed as their fit, these boyfriend jeans are comfortable enough for the hottest days and cool enough for night. 

We like to offset the masculine feel of the denim with a pair of killer heels, like these Playtime Slingbacks from Seychelles. Pairing fancy footwear with casual jeans is an excellent and unexpected way to work dressier shoes into your day-to-day look.

boyfriend_jean-3Going for something more effortless? Try pairing them with one of our favorite recurring trends- a luxe sweatshirt top. Easy to style and comfortable to wear, this top from RD Style is just the thing to keep you feeling good from sunup to sundown.

boyfriend_jean-4There are still long summer days ahead, so dress to enjoy them. Stop traffic. Take that detour. With your trusty boyfriend jeans you’ll be ready for whatever awaits!
