Spring 2019 Fashion Goals
Is it cool if we get cheesy for a minute? So the saying goes, “New Year. New me”; but what if you want to remain exactly who you are this year? What if this year the only thing you want to change is a few statement pieces in your wardrobe collection? I’m with you and I say, “let’s do it girl!” How though? How in the world does one smoothly sort, select pieces, and slide out of 2018’s spring must-haves into all that Spring 2019 has to offer in women’s clothing? Simplicity is key! Follow the following and feel the freedom of style take over as you embrace the myriad trends rather than feeling overwhelmed by the highly influential and ever-changing fashion industry. Ladies, how about if our goal in 2019 is all about being our own personal stylist because who understands what you feel confident in better than you?
Lamade's Water Fall Cardigan
A brand who understands quality, functionality, and affordability while also finessing the aesthetics of their clothing is difficult to find, so search no more. Lamade’s contemporary fashion clothing is all of the above. For my laid back loves who feel at home in a pair of amazingly fitting blue jeans or a super chill top that feeds Cali vibes into the world, Lamade can dress you in their sleep. The store is based in Cali and the style of their clothing is influenced by the downtown L.A. fashion district. Take a look at this waterfall cardigan. A black swoop around the shoulders cardigan that can go from a sophisticated gala to a casual get-together, is the look the waterfall cardigan speaks to me. You can expect to feel good in it and feel good about it because it’s made here in the U.S. and Lamade was started by a Taiwanese couple who immigrated here in search of the American Dream. This is the cardigan of your dreams and you are a part of their dreams by supporting their business.
Okay so how about my ladies who look for uniqueness and quirkiness in their outfits because they want to create a look that instantly grabs people’s attention? Patchwork, patchwork, patchwork is all I can say. Women’s clothing is already interesting enough but patchwork doubles the detail with two or more opposing patterns. Have you ever thought of floral and plaid romantically uniting to create a soft yet rugged collared shirt? Yes! That’s a thing!
Lastly, I saved a sweet and sexy one for all of you personal stylists, who work for yourselves. This beautifully simple and effortlessly elegant striped dress from Gretchen Scott designs has the definition of a trend bow affixed to the waist. Think centerpiece and you’ll get the purpose of this particular trend which is appropriate being that Ms. Scott’s collections of clothing were created while she was creating floral baskets. With a mantra that says, “Laugh More, Gripe Less, Ignore Critics, Say Yes, Order Dessert, Love Life,” Gretchen Scott is reshaping women’s’ clothing by inspiring women to live the life they want and wear the clothes they want; be your own personal stylist.
Voila! With these tips on hand you are free to start your spring styling!
