These shoes, once thought to be higher end flip flops, have finally hit the ground running this spring. Check out our style guide to learn how to wear it.

By Yvette E

Sometimes its hard to incorporate a trend into your wardrobe seamlessly so we created a style guide to help.

We picked a few styles and created outfits around each one.

Romance

Rather its a skirt or a dress, full width is a hit with these shoes. We added a boho romo look as well for all you festival babes.

Casual

The jean trend is really big this spring so pairing this look with the on trend shirt dress in denim is laid back and trendy.

Classic

Streamline the look with skinny jeans and the perfect jacket. Add accessories that are neutral for a comfy look.

Alternative

The only look which wears these shoes without socks, adding ripped jeans, and a moto jacket makes this look edgy.

Sneakers are always on trend but if you want some new looks, try these shoes that debuted on the runway for spring 2019.

By Yvette E

Dad sneakers have been the forefront of fashion for 3 seasons. Finally this year, we are shaking things up with a look at other laid back shoes.

Leather Espadrilles

These shoes are just as laid back as sneakers but have the ability to dress up an outfit, look for them in basket weave and lattice weaves for a more grown up laid back look.

Oxfords

Who doesn’t love these laced up shoes? I have several in my closet and so should you! For a shake up, look for them in clothe and leather hybrids or in colorful patchwork. Black oxfords are always in style as well.

Logo slides

These shoes are in trend for both sexes so they make a great coupling purchase. Make sure the logo is in neutral color as well as the slides to wear with more outfits.

As always, tag us if you try any of these looks with your own laid back style and you could be featured on our instagram page.

These fashion trends will have you coupling and twinning with your boyfriend or male friends this spring.

Tie dye

It is back and on trend forbeveryoneπŸ€—. This time around it gets a more comaflouge vide with heavy strikes and plenty of white space. This treatment lends a look of brush strokes.

Retro flowers

That 70’s retro floral style is back this spring. Think bright shades on a dark background.

Stripes

Even though not in the same direction, this trend gets a nod because of it’s similarities to each other while still looking different. While men have 1 hue mixed with a white background, women have thicker blocks of color.

As always if you try these looks, tag us on your image to be featured on our Instagram page!!

That yoga outfit is that the only way to look taller. Skip the leggings and skinny jeans and try these new looks.

By Yvette E

With so many silhouettes that landed this summer, there is no need to default to work out clothes for longer looking legs. Here we look at 3 outfits casual enough to wear all day and still add 4 inches to your look.

High waisted jeans with crop top

Wearing crop tops can always make you look taller but pairing them with a long jacket or leggings can look unkempt. Instead, add a high waist pair of jeans, a jacket the stops at the waist and some booties to pull the look together.

Culottes and platform shoes

We always think wearing pants that showcase the ankle can be tricky but in reality it’s easy. Remember don’t wear shoes higher then the hemline. Here you can pair these pant with a graphic tee to look less formal.

Midi skirt and heeled sandals

I don’t recommend getting a midi skirt that falls below the knee but if you must, stay away from booties and other shoes that take away space.

Remember the real trick of looking taller is space between shoes and clothes or just between clothes.

Happy Wednesday!!πŸ’‹

Hey guys, not every trend is worth your attention and we are nailing 5 to avoid this summer.

Who needs short shorts?

This look is not has leg friendly as it appears as well as other things in that area. We say skip this trend if your big in all the right places..😏

Bare chested and suited

Okay, if you can go pair chested then it’s too hot to wear a suit. Sweaty suit jackets are not attractive.

Army vest

Gillets should be left on the battle field and not in your closet.

Cowboy boots

Unless you live in the west, these boots won’t survive the tough streets of urbania nor the laughter of your friends.

Tight and Shiny

This look is half S&M and half studio 54 club kid and no longer cool. Skip this look just to not look dated or trying too hard.

It’s not about skinny jeans anymore but it may be hard to style the looks. We break it down for you.

By Yvette E

The skinny jean has ruled our closets for seasons but this season opens up with so much more options and subsequently more body types.

THE LOW RISE

These jeans are not butt friendly or stomach for that matter but if you do spend all that time in the gym then why not?

Pair with crop tops and cool sandals.

WIDE LEG

These at waist jeans are not for those with short legs but great for those with robust thighs.

Pair with a tee or blouse and ankle boots for a cool girl vibe.

CULOTTES

These wide leg ankle length jeans land at the waist and show off the ankle.

The silhouette makes it easy to pair with long sleeve looks and ballet flats.

HIGH WAISTED WIDE LEG

Finally mom jeans have been de-throned with this versatile body fitting look.

Best paired with flats and crop tops but still hides the tummy and accents the butt.

EMBELLISHED

Embroidery, stripes and hem designs are making jeans more dressy and more acceptable to wear at work and nights out.

Wearing cycling shorts causally is the latest trend but creating outfits can be tricky. We styled 3 outfits to pull off the trend without having to buy a bike.

By Yvette E

The cycling short has gone the way of causal sportswear and was seen all over the runway last year. We finally have a chance to rock the look IRL. We picked these 3 looks for guys to try that seemed street friendly right off the runway.

This look makes the shorts the vocal point of the outfit so pick a color that you are comfortable with wearing like red. Then match everything to it.

This was a fall look so remove the heavy jacket for something lighter but still hits at the waist.

We already coveted this blazer and cycle shorts look but we updated it with a logo, graphic or brightly colored tee to break up all the neutrals.

Just a couple of blocks from their SoHo location, Dermalogica open an instagram mecca to appeal to Millennials.

By Yvette E

Dermalogica was always to me a GenX brand that was on top of the beauty industry in paraben free and using science in skincare before any one else. Their lack of advertising though and little social media have them behind in the game.

Flash forward to their 2 day pop up which offers their new sunblock, free facials and a two Instagram booths, the brand may finally be reaching the next generation.

The product of the moment was the new Prism Spf30, a light-activated multitasking moisturizer provides broad spectrum defense while preventing future signs of skin damage.

We were unable to get down the stairs to fully appreciate the instagram pods but they were apologetic about it.

The price of the prism is $19 for the .4 oz and $65 for the 1.4 oz. A little goes along way.

Stop by the actual store to see more products in different sizes making the budget friendly.

Store: 110 Grand St #B, NY, NY 10013

They also offer facials with their products.

Happy Friyay! πŸ’‹

Companies trust their CEOs too much, having access to every point of the business but when is it too much?

The retail and fashion industry have been in shambles since 2000 reared its head and millenials became the most dominant shoppers.

To be fair, the problems are not with the changing consumer, its with the companies themselves.

Roberto Cavalli and Charolette Russe both closed this weekend but Roberto Cavalli was the biggest surprise because it was unexpected.

Roberto Cavalli’s rash decision to close all US stores and give only a week’s paycheck to his 93 employees says he knew little about what was happening in his own company and in fact relied on another to pull profit where he was just the face and designer (did he or was the clothes manufactured?).

And the corporate branch knew March 22 while employees were taken by surprise and escorted out by security!!

This is problem facing the fashion industry, too many collections based on too many trends…Do you need those 7 collections a year..or just 1 collection that spands all 2 seasons (basically cold and hot).

So why did he fail? Why is Gucci and Fendi the only Italian brands not fazed?

Cavalli only owns 10% of his namesake brand meaning he had little say in its direction. In 2015, he sold 90% to a private equity firm a mistake we see often…Toys R Us, Radio Shack and so many companies are using them as investors but as soon as the profit sinks, they are quick to file for bankruptcy.

Secondly, Cavalli was no longer designing…he resigned 4 years ago…and Peter Dunas took over for 19 months and then Paul Surridge…who resigned a week before the brand collapsed.

How could you sell your namesake brand and then someone else design for it? No wonder the pieces became so gaudy and unoriginal.
