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!)

Blooms

Now is the beloved time of year where we flirt with warmer weather and on most mornings you can hear a choir of birds from your window. Spring is definitely on its way, and what better way to welcome the season than with this gorgeous floral maxi dress! There’s not much better than a dress that can stand out on its own. We love the delicate floral pattern throughout- yet it still totally makes a statement! We juxtapose this colorful classic with this amazing fringe leather tote bag. Delicate, brass-toned jewelry really compliment the colorful print of this dress. With this look, you can effortlessly toss a little spring in your step (and your wardrobe)!

Draped

Do you ever feel like sometimes things just get complicated when they never really had to? Like making dentist appointments or getting our tires rotated, it’s actually so much simpler than we make it out to be with our procrastination and over-thinking. We say to ourselves, “it can’t be that easy!” Well, sometimes, it just is. Like in fashion and putting together an outfit for the day it’s easy to get lost in accessorizing or making the perfect combinations. Welcome the solution: the ROMPER! Yes! It’s comfortable, effortless, and completely eliminates any opportunity to over-complicate + over-think your outfit. These Everly Rompers are almost suspiciously comfortable (how can this be so easy?) and the neutral color and pattern allows you to add your own personal flare with shoes or jewelry. And it’s no secret that we love the Bardot off-the-shoulder trend right. Does anyone else think that the clavicle is one of the most underrated parts of the body? So pretty! So, how about just this once, you let it be this simple!

S.O.S

Sometimes with fashion and putting together an outfit outside of your routine uniform, it means putting together pieces you wouldn’t think would go together. Utilizing different textures and fabrics within the same look adds interest and depth. We are loving this look styled with a chunky knit sweater and lovely emerald skirt. While it may not be instinctual to have these two items together, you can see these opposites really play off each other in creating a cohesive look. If you’re trying out this trend for the first time, keeping each piece in the same color family may help add some comfort and congruence. Too cold for bare legs? Add some tights or a neutral sock and you are weather-ready!

Top Coat

Need a quick style elevation? Look no further than a little fur trim. The (Faux) fur trim trend is definitely one we can get behind. It is commonly thought that fashion tends to repeat itself, and fur accents + details are no exceptions. Find it on this luxurious Traffic People coat, dangling from your tote bag or purse, and even lining the hood of your favorite puffer jacket- this subtle statement helps with staying warm, adding interest, all while remaining classy.

Pretty in Mink Pink

As the winter chill unpredictably creeps in,  find clever ways to layer up without loading yourself down. Nobody likes to walk into the room and have to hold onto stacks of outer layers that are no longer necessary in heated space. Find a long sleeve crop top or your favorite sweater, and throw it on top of a dress to add some warmth without sacrificing your shape and silhouette. And when winter settles in for the season, say ‘good-bye’ to bare legs and seamlessly introduce some tights into this look.
