What's New at Nouveaux
A single item of your ensemble in power red can transform it. Bold colors are great to draw strength from and make you feel every bit the confident woman you are. This Moshino Jeans blazer with the embroidered rose detail is in line with both the power red and embroidery trends.
'All any girl needs, at any time in history, is simple velvet and basic diamonds.'
This Giorgio Armani blazer is something out of a dream. I love velvet as much as the next girl, but this jacket is next level amazing. You can adjust the zipper and wear it a multitude of ways.
Most people have a love/hate relationship with nylon. I for one love it. It can be lightweight and easy to manage as well as bulked up in heavier jackets. The blue Burberry number shown above is a delightful mid-weight jacket, while its Luii companion on the right is a great lightweight early fall option.
For me, a western trend can be over-done very easily, but by making just one item of your outfit on par with the western trend you can't go wrong. This Elizabeth & James lambskin jacket is alluringly soft and in such a great cognac color!
Plaids?! For Fall?! SHOCKING. Neutral plaids are the tartan target this fall, and a a great plaid blazer is great for both work and play paired with a pair of jeans.
Other trends we'll be seeing this fall include midi skirts, sequins, fall florals as well as statement faux furs!
Fun & Fantastic Booties
The wonderful thing about these booties is that they have have the ability to be dressed up & down! Throw them on with a pair of cuffed jeans, a dress or skirt. The options are endless!
Badass Babe Boots
There's nothing like a good leather boot and some hardware to make you feel like a chíc biker chick, and these beauties do just that. Wear them with your fav moto jacket and some distressed jeans to complete the look.
These Calleen Cordero lace up wedge booties adorned with gunmetal get a special shoutout. They are a styling dream! Wear them with jeans, camo, leather skirts, dresses, literally anything, and you'll no doubt have everyone asking who makes your boots.
These rustic booties are begging for an outdoor concert or a night sitting around a bonfire. Wear them with distressed jeans, a jean skirt or a boho chíc dress to complete the look.
No matter your style, chances are there are a pair of riding boots that suit you. My favorite part about tall boots are their versatility. You can wear them with practically any item of clothing and achieve the look your going for. Fancy or casual, jeans or dresses, riding boots are here to stay (for now) and I am here for it!
Stay tuned for next week's post where we'll go over ways to style jeans with every style of boot! Cuffed? Un-cuffed? Rolled under? Tucked in? We'll show you how we're styling boots & jeans this season!
I don't know about you all, but I blinked in May and now it's suddenly August?! August means Fall is coming and its time to start thinking about those summer to fall transition outfits! Long sleeves (& dare I say pants?!) can be hard to wrap your head around when temps here in the Queen City will hover around 80 degrees until September, alas fall fashion doesn't care how hot it is.
The key to the early fall transition is LAYERS! It may be 85-90 degrees outside but everyone has the a/c cranked indoors and with fluctuating temps, layers are your best friend. We aren't re-inventing the wheel here, layers are the key to any seasonal transition, its more about how creative you can get with your styling. Seasonal transitions allow you to play with a myriad of textures and lengths and still look purposeful.
Check out a few of the looks below for some inspiration! All items featured are currently available for purchase in store & online! Check out the 'Shop the Blog' Collection on the homepage.
Mixing Layers & Patterns
Invest in a good chambray button down, there's so much you can do with it! This Cloth & Stone two tone top is a size XS and just $20.80!
These Citizen of Humanity coated denim in a subtle camo pattern are the PERFECT pant to pair with a fun patterned shoe or bag.
Playing with Textures
I am really loving the raw hem denim trend right now. We've paired these McGuire crops (size 27, $85) with a short sleeve thick knit Banana Republic crop top (size small, $15) that breathes so you won't die of heat stroke. And we can't forget to mention these FABULOUS Valentino leather rockstud espadrilles can we?! Size 38 $400
Sporty & Put Together
A comfy jersey knit dress is a must have in every woman's closet. It can look comfy & relaxed, but when paired with a button down, there is a sense of structure added to the look. The Adidas Superstars (size 10, $20) maintain a playful on trend look.
This Elizabeth & James button down has the most playful & fun tie-back! Size XS $32.50
Tanks & Joggers
The joggers trend is here to stay and I for one am here for it. These Michael by Michael Kors chambray beauties (size 2, $25) can be worn with heels, flats, wedges, or sneakers. There is no wrong answer.
Tying a knot in any top & layering with a tank adds so many new options within your exsting closet. The best part? If you get too hot, just take the t-shirt off! This NWT Free People top (Size Small, ($18 Retail $48)) is the perfect material to tie up, because it will maintain its original shape after washing.
Though summer is coming to an end, Fall fashion is just beginning.
