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!

Ah, Lazybones dresses. If you’re unfamiliar with this line, we suggest you run (not walk!) to the nearest computer and get to browsing! Lazybones is one of our favorite designers here @ Minx for obvious reasons. They are designed in Australia and use the most beautiful and soft fabrics for their dresses, slips, blouses, and textiles. The dresses we featured here marry illustrative fabrics with beautifully draped silhouettes that would suit any occasion + mood. Wearing a piece from Lazybones instantly transports you to a dreamy land far, far away – so come along for the ride!

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.

This maxi dress from Cotton Candy LA is perfect for an outdoor wedding – a simple ceremony at dusk and then dancing the night away.

Connect the Dots

The name of the game this is Spring is… wait for it!…RUFFLES!! This trend has been popping up everywhere and we are loving it! The ruffle trend hasn’t ever really fall off the grid – it just goes in and out of subtlety throughout the seasons. This detail stands out nicely with the Bardot-style or peasant top or even as some added interest on a pair of socks. Traffic People incorporates this ruffle trend beautifully in sleeves this maxi dress. This piece is a total show stopper and conversation starter, while still not being completely over the top. At Minx, we love on-trend pieces and even more when trends are used in a way that makes them totally timeless.
