Relaxed Style

Can you be relaxed, comfortable and stylish?
The answer is yes!
Here are a few ways to pull off that, “my style just happens on it’s own” look.

Slouchy vs. Baggy: You want your look to be relaxed not misshapen. This means picking pieces that have relaxed details that drape like the cowl neck and pockets on our tunic but still have shape. The faux wrap in crinkle hides your tummy but it emphasizes your waist and the flowey silk shirt has pin tucks that control the volume.

Don’t do loose fit everywhere: One way to keep a slouchy look flattering is to make sure that it’s not loose on top and bottom. Pair flowey tops with fitted bottoms like these straight leg ponte pants available at Fresh Ayer.

Long accessories: Pair the look with long accessories like our gold and black crystal layerable chain. A long necklace keeps you looking tall because it is a great vertical line that draws the eye straight up and down.

Free your digits!

In honor of our new accessories store, Kat Bradley, I am dedicating my first fall fashion post to one of my favorite cold weather accessories, fingerless gloves!

This fun item was has been around for a year or two and it was all over the Fall 2010 runway shows. This is a fabulous fashion invention for all of you texters, because fingerless gloves are great for keeping you warm while you use your favorite touch screen phone.

Here are a couple of ways to wear this fabulous look,

1. Keep it warm with layeres and a chunky coordinating scarf. (Rag & Bone)

2. For a more tailored look go for a thin knit, pair the look with fitted pieces and wear jewelry like your wrist watch on top . (Tory Burch)

3. Dress the look up with lace. This touch of Victorian era style is sexy and feminine. (Ralf Lauren)

The great thing about accessories is that curvy or slender any girl can wear this look. Where can you buy this fashion forward look? Check out Fresh Ayer and our sister store Kat Bradley Accessories!
