Dress Like a Celebrity in These Hot Summer Trends

Natalie Morello

Summer is coming (tomorrow!) and we have you covered for the hottest trends that both the celebrities and the Shoppe Pioneer girls are wearing. 

Camilla Belle, Em Ratajkowski, and Olivia Culpo are all rocking the gingham style this year. Top and pant set, mini dress or high waisted bikini - it all a staple for your summer wardrobe and we are a little obsessed with this trend and there is no such thing as going overboard with it. You can easily dress it up for a night out like Camilla, or it can be an easy street style look like Em.  Can't enough of it too? Check out our Off The Shoulder Gingham Dress by Capulet - $128.

Also, We are loving the recent trend of the midi dress and there are so many different styles to choose from; like Vanessa Hudgens in a casual light weight plaid, Sienna Miller in a striped knit bodycon, or even Jenny Walton in a vintage swing. So what exactly does midi mean? Its a length that is past your knees, and can be any style - there really is no limit to a midi. We think it's the best new dress trend for 2017, because it can fit any body type, any occasion, and again, any style. Shop our midi dress looks on our website! We have three great options to choose from:
1. Plaid Button Down Midi Dress by Doe & Rae - $78. 2. Multicolor Rib Knit Dress by Storm & Marie - $150. 3. Red Midi Dress by FRNCH - $88. 

 

Last but not least, stripes. Stripes are a classic. Everyone loves the look of a great striped shirt, like fashion icons Gigi Hadid and Lily Aldridge in the classic look. Even Emma Roberts and Ashley Tisdale in two different horizontal striped dresses. it's a look that can never go out of style, and will always be a crowd favorite. Shop our looks for the summer: 1. Striped Top with Tie in Front by FRNCH - $68. 2. Round Neckline Striped Top by Nümph - $58. 3. Striped/Floral Tunic Dress by Joh Apparel - $58.

What Bag Will You Be Seen Wearing in 2017?

A couple of weeks ago we discussed some of the most prominent highlights of this Fall 2016 Women's New York Fashion Week. We touched on the fact that some key style pieces such as the trench coat, made quite a modern and sophisticated comeback on the catwalks of NYC. On the other hand we also observed various new trends arise for example; wearing an outfit constructed entirely of nudes and neutral hues, is now what designers consider wearing the new black. As much as clothing excited us with the birth and resurrection of new and old styles, so did accessory handbags. Below, shots from London and Milan’s fall fashion weeks display an array of beautifully crafted handbags from various designers that will be red hot for 2017!

Small bags seem to be all the rage this season, however who can resist a bag that can fit an all in one! Jill Sander really went for an exaggerated look with her larger shoulder bag, displayed in a few differentiated seasonal colors for the fall.

Did we already say exaggerated? We can always count on Gucci to show us how to fashionably break out of our shell. Gucci featured this over the top handbag fastened by a muted metal chain and emerald leather strap to match the gorgeous green background of this masterpiece of a bag!

This fall, Fendi bestowed upon us a bag that will remind everyone of spring's beautiful and quaint colors we simply adore and look forward too all winter long.

Burberry once again revitalized something as old as a saddle bag and made it new again! Attached with a camera strap instead of a typical leather or chain band, this brand truly put an creative spin on your every day bag.

StyleWeek NorthEast - Forward Thinking

Natalie Morello

After our long day in NYC for Fashion Coterie, we were fortunate enough to sit front row of the opening night at SWNE. Last nights showcased wonderful designs from Evolue Apparel, Jeffrey Dickerson, Elan Rose and Susan Troy. While everyones designers carried their own unique spin on style, one designer in particular caught our eye. Elan Rose strives to merge fashion, functionality, quality & comfort. Every piece retains its own personality and is inspired by women who celebrate diversity and independence. In a world with so much controversy, Elan had her models head wrapped. Showcasing versatility and incorporating all ethnic backgrounds to show that we are all equal is the key to forward thinking. We applaud you, Elan. Check out her designs from last night.
