Burgundy – If you don’t know it by now, you need this hue. Although the name has gone from traditional burgundy to oxblood to merlot to whatever is coming next, it’s worth it to invest in a few pieces. One of the benefits of a rich tone like burgundy is it can make an inexpensive dress look very luxe.
Shimmer – Shimmer and shine aren’t only reserved just for special occasions. Bring the glam into the New Year with a gold metallic cocktail dress or a casual black shimmer dress that’s sure to start a conversation. Wear your shimmer looks with knits and neutrals during the off season to extend the life of those party dresses.
Monochromatic – Monochromatic doesn’t have to be boring. Step your color game up, or lack thereof with structured pieces that complement one another.
Velvet – Velvet was once only available around the holidays and expensive as all hell. The fashion gods have blessed us and velvet dresses, blazers and skirts are making their debut with a vengeance in never before seen colors and hues. Don’t sleep on this trend, I have a feeling once it’s gone, it’s gone, and if you play your cards right you’ll be the lucky lady with a few must-have pieces in her closet.
Knits – Knits are always in style, but statement knits are all the rage. Instead of opting for the status quo knit sweater, reach for a relaxed fit cold shoulder one instead, soft Angora mid-calf knit midi dress or oversized turtleneck sweater dress to switch it up a little.
These four looks are classy and timeless, how many of these do you have in your winter wardrobe? Let us know your favorites below.
I love crop tops, but the length of time that you can show off those abs in a belly top is just to short. With all the hard work we invest in searching far and wide for the perfect crop top and high-waisted shorts we ought to be able to get a few more months of wear out of them beyond just summer. How ever you love to wear your short shirts, we are going to show you how to wear them a little bit longer.
1. Choose crop tops in Fall hues.
2. Pair your tops with high-waisted anything to eliminate the gap and to keep your midsection warm.
3. Wear your crop top as a vest. Layer your favorite short shirt over a basic long sleeve Oxford shirt to add dimension.
4. Do denim, tie it at the waist or wear your denim shirt as a light jacket.
Do you wear your crop tops through the fall or do you tuck them away at the first sign of chilly weather? Tag us in your crop top outfit looks on Instagram and give us a follow @ShopUnitedFront
Orange you glad it’s Autumn?!
No really, orange you? Ok, that was corny, but all jokes aside, whats your thoughts on orange? The great thing about the color, that is especially reserved for Halloween is that there are so many shades. There is literally an orange shade for every single tone.
How to choose your orange? The right orange will complement your rich complexion, but deciding on the right tone can be intimidating. If you don’t have the time to delve into color theory and find your shade, here is a little guide line.
Fair skin– True orange, peachy orange
Olive skin – Bright and bold
Deep – Red orange, or blood orange
Once you find your tone, what then?
Color block it: Orange can be very vibrant, so reserve it for certain sections to keep it simple
Balance it out: Pair it with nudes and grays to tone the beautiful hue down if you feel its to vivid.
Put it on blast: Wear it loud and proud, high contrast is the way to go. Pair it with black and rock it out.
Is orange a common color in your wardrobe arsenal?
Keep your LBD demure, it shouldn’t be so memorable that the next time you wear it people remember it.
Very stylish people from Rita Ora to Michelle Obama have pulled off this trend quite successfully. Wearing a dress over pants or pants under a dress for that matter is not as hard as you think.
There are some key factors that must be adhered to before attempting this trend; If not, is can go from FABULOUS to FRUMPY real quick!
First things first. Complimentary fabrics are a must. You cannot put a chiffon dress over a wool pair of pants. Similar fabrics will make the look appear light weight and effortless.
Now that you have your fabrics down, the look must have a silhouette. You can’t just put on any old dress, a-line dresses or shift dresses are most flattering with this trend. Both looks create lines which are appealing to the eye and will flatter your figure. Empire waist dresses can work on rare occasions, but they have a tendency to come off a little to hippy-ish for my taste, but if you can make it work go for it!
Dress jumpers are also great for pulling off this look. A sleek pair of wide leg pants and a satin or silk like blouse with the proper jumper dress will give the retro look a modern flare.
Feel free to play with prints and belts with this look, keep it fun, but not too busy. This look in itself is a statement.
