Inspired By: Pop Brights

If the saying rings true and fortune really does befriend the bold, then it’s in our good fortune that this season’s brightest and boldest hues are the hottest thing on the block!

There are so many ways to wear bright colors, even if you’re not as forward or bold in your sartorial tastes.  Adding in pops of bold hues through your accessories allows you to indulge in the “Neo Rio” trend without fear of going overboard.

Today’s street style inspiration, however, is all about embracing bold, bright colors while tempering them with a couple of well-chosen basics (in this case, a denim jacket). See our take on this vivid outfit below!

Inspired By: Sunny Side Up

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then street style replication is fashion flattery at its finest.

Today’s street style inspiration is our way of thinking bright, sunny spring colors despite cold temperatures in the last days of winter. This lively transitional look is bundled up but still manages to infuse some fun colors to perk up a neutral coat.

Check out our version of this bold yet bundled up ensemble:

4 Denim Brands You Need to Know in 2014

With the start of every new year comes a certain longing for renewal, and sometimes this manifests itself to a return to basics—a simple decluttering of the closet perhaps, or investing in wardrobe pieces that serve a multitude of options. Jeans definitely fit into this “indispensable staples” category, and are truly worth spending a little more time and money on to get that perfect fit for your body.

Today, we’re highlighting four of our denim superstars that we think you (and your wardrobe) should get acquainted with this year:

Hudson is a company that lives and breathes creativity and a passion for denim at every stage of its inception—from the drawing board to the very last stitch. You can really feel the love and great attention to detail behind each and every pair which is carefully crafted by expert hands.

To inspire people is Hudson’s ultimate goal. Their mantra “Let Yourself Go” isn’t just a catch phrase, it’s something that every person behind the brand lives and breathes every day. It’s summarizes ever so simply how Hudson strives not only to make quality denim but also to inspire others to “let go” of inhibitions and let their creativity soar to its full potential.

Founder Paige Adams-Geller created Paige Denim back in 2004 with a strong background in the denim industry spanning over a decade.

I’m a firm believer that a good fall wardrobe needs a solid foundation. These timeless pieces become the building blocks for the rest of your outfits season after season.  Having go-to staples that defy fads and trends is the key to having a truly versatile wardrobe.

Here are my top 5 fall essentials that are worthy of investing in:

CLASSIC COATS:

You can’t go wrong with a classic belted trench coat and a tailored peacoat. They’re both timeless and instantly pull together your entire look.

BLACK ANKLE BOOTS:

The equivalent to a little black dress in the footwear department, black ankle boots are a must-have for every woman.

Right: ALDO Elks

COZY SCARVES:

Scarves are a great way to add color, pattern and/or texture to any outfit. I like to stock up in them to change up outfits throughout the season.

STRUCTURED HANDBAGS:

A structured bag adds a classic, ladylike feel to even casual ensembles!

DARK WASH JEANS:

Jeans are an obvious staple all year round, but when done in a clean dark wash, it gives any outfit a more polished, pulled-together appearance. Invest in great-fitting dark wash jeans in a variety of cuts like bootcut, skinny and flare.
