Layer Love

on January 8, 2020

     Post-holiday winter season is finally here, which means you can finally put away all the extra glitter and sequins, and start focusing on your everyday looks as you slip into your everyday routine once again (even if we wish we still had at least another week off). If you’re like me, you definitely want to continue living your best, ‘Hot Girl Summer’ life all year long. However, there are many fun and unexpected ways to layer pieces for these cooler months of the year. Wearing layers doesn’t have to be as heavy or complex as it may sound, so here are a few tips from our stylists at FASHOM with easy yet stylish ways to layer this season (featuring some of our new arrivals!):

A colorful over-the-knee coat with pleather gloves and a printed scarf adds a pop of brightness to what can be a dreary ensemble after a while. This is an easy way to make a casual or work outfit feel fun and fresh while staying warm.

A solid-color jumpsuit layered under a coated jacket or textured cardigan, a pair of patterned booties, and a daring lip is the perfect transitional combination whether this look be for the office or an evening out with your best gal pals!

A trench coat and a bold knit sweater paired with a textured skirt under tights is an easy way to bring a hint of chic elegance to your everyday wardrobe this winter. Not only is this outfit fun, but it looks perfectly on-trend without needing the help of a glam squad!

How to Blend Seasons: The Distressed Sweater

on January 18, 2019

Merging seasons together with style can be tedious and tricky; one season is relatively warm while the other is relatively cold. So, you might ask: What do I wear? Moving into the Spring time while it’s still Winter is not all that difficult. Or, merging from the summertime into the Fall isn’t all that tricky. In fact, it’s quite fun because you get to mix warm clothing with Spring, bold colors, or Summer clothing with darker colors. I take this experience as a challenge to see which direction your different tastes and particular styles go in. 

1. Winter into Spring

We’re in that weird “in-between-seasons” season where it’s still freezing and relatively cold in some areas of the globe and beginning to get cool and warm in other parts. Merging from the depths of freezing Winter into the chill and relaxed Spring season is the hardest way to clean out your whole wardrobe between seasons. Sweaters keep you warm for the Winter, while pastel colors such as blues, pinks, and yellows can keep the Spring vibe ongoing throughout the outfit. The distressed hinges add a lightweight feel to the silhouette and roughens up the look, as opposed to the usual oversized Winter sweater that hangs low on the body and makes the look too baggy. This sweater adds a savage physique that can be fitted for every body type.

2. Spring to Summer

Sweaters in the Summer!? No way! I know what you’re thinking, but it’s how you wear it. Summer is scorching hot pretty much 24/7 (unless you live in Alaska), and you need something aerated or lightweight to keep you from dying. A lightweight, brightly colored distressed sweater is breezy and comfortable in the Spring and summertime. It’s edgy, bohemian, and chic, especially to wear along the shore or by the beach. Having it cropped by the waist allows that real summer look to sink in. Pairing this with shorts or bathing suit bottoms adds a stylistic flair and statement piece to your fit of choice.

3. Summer to Fall

One of many people’s favorite seasons: Fall. It’s the layering, the plaid, the boots and booties, the scarves, the vests… Fall is a fun season to individualize style and coziness. This is another tricky “in-between-seasons” season because we just came from really hot Summer, and now we’re drifting into breezy cool Fall. The distressed sweater is perfect for this occasion. Think about it, when it’s freezing in the mornings but really hot in the afternoons, the distressed sweater allows you to walk out of the house in just that and you’ll be fine for the rest of the day. It keeps you warm in the mornings and will leave you comfortable in the afternoons because you don’t have to wear any other heavy coats or vests for the rest of the day. Orange, cranberry red, and white are perfect colors for the October-December months. Orange for Halloween, cranberry red for Thanksgiving, and white representing purity for Christmas. Pair these outfits with slim jeans, your favorite booties, and a statement crossbody to finish the look.

4. Fall to Winter 

Cold, cold Winter is approaching. This is the time to break in the oversized sweaters because it is almost too cold to not to. Oversized sweaters are cute and homey for the wintertime and can be worn for any special occasion. Grays, reds, and taupes are perfect to match the cold season. Pairing the top with slim jeans, knee high boots, a knit hat, and turtle neck layers underneath keep you alive during this brutal season. When you aren’t too busy hibernating in the Winter, take on the new trend of the distressed sweater as your first pick when you strut outside.

1. Vertical stripes add to your height. Ever wanted to look taller but didn’t feel like wearing heels? Try an outfit with vertical stripes! Your figure will definitely look elongated, and you won’t even have to wear high shoes to do it!

2. Try a smaller design such as polka dots or flowers. By wearing these kinds of patterns, you will bring more attention to your waist and other curves, instead of taking away from them by wearing larger, more distracting patterns.

3. Color-blocking is great for your waist. Color-blocking is the use of a few different colors or shapes to create a very unique pattern on clothing. By wearing an outfit with this pattern, you’ll bring out your waist, and you’ll definitely rock any look you’re wearing!
