Style Crush: Kacie Cone

shy girl loud voiceAs the sun streaks across the Oregon forests, a girl is roaming over the moss-covered rocks and dried-up leaves. She’s something of a barefoot gyspy in the wind — ethereal, serene, beautiful. And she doesn’t care what you think about her loud prints or bare arms in the middle of winter.

We’re talking about Kacie Cone, the fashion-forward free thinker behind Shy Girl Loud Voice. Based out of Portland, her boho-chic style is accented by delicate duds, loose hair, and a bold smear of lipstick. Continue reading

Outfit of the Week: It’s a Girls’ Night

outfit of the day for work

>> Desigual top, Dex jeans, Lacoste bag, UGG Australia boots

Sometimes we simply need to have a relaxed girls’ night out. Hushed chit-chat between friends in the corner booth. Margaritas with extra lime. Loud belly laughs. The occasional dance intermission. This kind of celebration requires the right uniform.

Slip into this Desigual graphic top and feel edgy, sexy, and comfortable (at the same time)! The cute sequin details, seductive scoop neckline, and trendy oversized fit will make this an instant classic for happy hour. Accompanied by jeans that stretch to fit your body perfectly, you’ll feel carefree enough to stay out all night. Style these booties folded down to showcase the glitter speckles or standing up for a more structured look — it’s your choice. Either way, the chunky heel and smooth leather construction will do you no wrong.

Wear your hair in a messy braid, slick pony, or free falling across your shoulders, but don’t forget the pop of color on your lips. Any shade of red is classic and stunning against a dark palette, so don’t be afraid to be bold! Our model Raeshae executed this look flawlessly and with minimal effort. Let your clothes do the talking.

Best & Worst Dressed: Oscars 2015

The Oscar’s red carpet was filled with statement necklaces, bold colors, dresses decorated with an arsenal of embellishments, and a surprisingly natural makeup palette. For some, the resulting look was flawless. For others, well, their ensembles didn’t come together quite so effortlessly.

THE BEST:

7. Naomi Watts

This racerback Armani number is edgy, unexpected, and simply unforgettable. The printed silk features sequin details that give it a textured appearance, creating photographic gold. And hints of icy blue on a silhouette that dips low at the sides and back are an original element. Naomi’s disheleved hair and dark lip complete the impeccable styling.

Outfit of the Week: Tough and Feminine

>> Kenneth Cole jacket, Dex top, Parasuco jeans, UGG Australia boots, Lacoste bag

Tough does not mean masculine, so don’t be afraid to incorporate menswear-inspired pieces into your look. A quilted leather jacket is timeless and effortlessly cool on top of any outfit, especially a loose-fitting top and the perfect skinnies. Embrace your curves and your womanly edge. Accessorize with rugged buckled boots and a smart crossbody bag to create a look that’s boiling over with confidence. Keep it neutral with a black-grey-white color palette, but make a loud statement at the same time, like British model Cara Delevingne, who really doesn’t care what anyone thinks of her. Refreshingly authentic.

Outfit of the Week: Pale Blue Precision

outfit of the day

>> K-Way jacket, 7 Diamonds shirt, Diesel beanie, Ben Sherman wallet, Buffalo David Bitton jeans, Lacoste shoes

It’s difficult to get out of bed in the winter, never mind feeling inspired to dress well. Instead, we tend to wear things that resemble the gloom and the grey skies. To veer away from that, go for a blue color palette. Navy, powder blue, and cobalt are all stunning colors that can blend together for one cohesive look when done right. Accessorize with a cozy beanie and insulated jacket for the ultimate in warmth. Top your outfit off with stark white sneakers and you’ll be one step closer to David Beckham’s chic style. Effortlessly cool.
