Style Watch: Capes

Many designers showed their flare for Capes on the runways, and I must say I myself am completely intrigued. A cape worn the right way sends a message of chic pulled-upness( not a word but a word in my dictionary lol) A cape is so versatile and can be  dressed up or dolled down.  So if your looking for a different yet chic outwear option this Fall/Winter try out a cape!

Here is an everyday outfit idea with a cape :capes3

Booties are a must in every girls closet theses days. Booties help edge up a super girly outfit  or depnding on the bootie can girly up a super edgy outfit. If you’re searching for a new style to spice up your ankle boot game, lace-up booties are the fiercest footwear trend of the moment. 

There’s something slightly sexy about showing a little bit of skin between laces. Depending on your work/internship environment, this style may not be suitable for the workplace, but are perfect for slipping on for a happy hour after clocking out.

If you’re not sure how to wear these shoes, take some cues from the styles above. Pair them with skinny jeans, a skirt, or a dress. Think of all the killer looks in your closet just waiting to be paired with some laced-up ankle booties.

Nordstrom to Expand Partnership with Topshop

nordstrom-store

Last year,we shared that Nordstrom would be launching in-store Topshop departments, and now WWD is reporting that the brands’ partnership will be expanding significantly.

Currently, Nordstrom has Topshop departments at 14 of their U.S. locations, but this will expand to another 28 stores this fall, either in late September and October. By early 2014, the Topshop line will also be carried at an additional 30 Nordstrom locations.

Nordstrom’s President of Merchandising, Pete Nordstrom explained the reason behind the expansion:

“It behooves both Topshop and us to get it going as quickly as possible. I would say in general it’s been productive — more productive than the average department in women’s. So, when you combine that with the fact that it attracts a lot of new customers as well, it’s been a good thing

 

Style Watch: Crochet Shorts

Just like their lace counterparts, crochet shorts are a huge trend for spring and summer. Simultaneously girly and boho, these trendy shorts can elevate a casual look to fashion perfection. I suggest hitting the stores for this trend, these shores can be styled so many different ways.  Whether your style is hippie-chic, ultra-feminine, eclectic-boho, or somewhere in between these shirts are sure to add a girlish on trend flare.
