Happy Memorial Day fashionistas! A three day weekend is a great chance to slow down and appreciate life's simple joys: family, sunshine, and that perfect cookout menu! At LuxCouture, we're celebrating the long weekend by getting back to basics too...back to basics in our closets! In the midst of wanting this trendy item and needing that must-have, sometimes we forget just how lovely a simple blouse and jeans can be. As always, LuxCouture strives to update classic combinations for the contemporary fashionista; when we go back to basics, it is always fashion forward! In this episode of Getting Dressed with LuxCouture, we are going to rediscover and redefine the unbeatable combo of your favorite pair of jeans with a timeless blouse.
Step One: The Blouse. If you've dropped by 9 Lincoln Street recently, you may have discovered the magic that is Pipsqueak Chapeau blouses! Upon trying on one of these blissfully soft blouses, any ideas you may have had about oxfords being inherently stiff and dowdy will instantly disappear. Pipsqueak Chapeau blouses bring an elegant sensibility to any outfit. Soft and comfortable without looking rumpled nor sloppy, Pipsqueak Chapeau redefines the traditional collared shirt!
For our Back to Basics outfit, we kept the season's necessities in mind; no fashionista can tolerate long sleeves in the New England humidity, so we chose one of our favorite Pipsqueak Chapeau tops for this outfit:
Practical and fashion-forward, how perfect! Not only is this top an ideal summer staple, but it also an example of how we are recreating the classics at LuxCouture; this sleeveless blouse gives you all the sophistication of a classic oxford, but a lot more comfort and style!
Step Two: The Jeans. Every woman has their go-to brand of jeans. Some LuxCouture fashionistas are die-hard Goldsign girls while others swear by PRPS Jeans. Whatever your brand, LuxCouture has the perfect pair of jeans waiting for you. Our current obsession is there silvery-gray jeans by Japanese denim designer, Chimala. These jeans are a modern take on those beat-up Levi's you've had since the early 90's. With a distinctive wash and loads of stretch, these Chimala straight-legs are destined to replace those beat-up old standbys!
That traditional combination of blue jeans and a white oxford is transforming before our eyes! By replacing classic blue jeans with a hip charcoal wash by one of fashion's hottest designers, any look is instantly updated.
Step Three: The Scarf. With our gallery of scarves at LuxCouture, you will have plenty of gorgeous scarves to choose from! A breathtaking scarf is an ideal outfit topper for any season. While some scarves are unequivocally winter or summer pieces, Athena Procopiou Scarves are ideal for any season. You may remember our sharing of these scarves with you back in January when they were available for preorder. If you did not preorder one of these highly sought-after scarves, never fear! We ordered several extras so one of these stunning Greek scarves can be yours too!
With a one-of-a-kind celestial print, these scarves are truly out of this world. Athena Procopiou's clever imagination and remarkable creative vision have produced scarves that have become the It-Scarf of the year! There is no better way to finish off this outfit than with an Athena scarf. By adding a pop of print, we are continuing to revamp the standard jeans-and-oxford outfit. There is really no wrong way to add print to a solid outfit, however adding a print that's in the same color family as the outfit itself adds an extra touch of elegance to the look.
We have so much fun creating new possibilities out of classic outfits! Stop by 9 Lincoln Street to discover how you can turn your favorite look into a subtle yet fabulous fashion statement!
