Nordic Print Fashion Inspiration

5

As the weather gets colder, we take a fashion cue from Northern Europeans who are used to the blistering winter chill. We cuddle up in cozy sweaters and leggings in comforting Nordic prints. This festive print is characterized by wintery patterns of reindeer and snowflakes often seen on knits. We love combining a Nordic print sweater with a flannel underneath, a pair of jeans, and comfy boots. Or you can style Nordic leggings with a slouchy sweater! It’s the perfect print for a casual night spent with friends and family.

Color Story: Marsala

4

Pantone has spoken, and the color of the year is a far cry from last year’s Radiant Orchid! This year’s winning shade is described as “a naturally robust and earthy wine red color”, and has a fitting name to boot: Marsala. This beautiful color is a cross between a cool burgundy and a warm terracotta. We can’t wait to see how designers and decorators use this color in the coming year!
088832d0ba98346b98a7f9c75fac4a34We love this color paired with a light blue for an unexpected contrast.

Mad About Plaid Inspiration

8

Lumberjack style is so in right now, to the point that the phrase lumbersexual has been coined as a way of describing a man who dresses with an outdoorsy and rugged aesthetic. We’re wondering if the obsession with this new-era lumberjack has less to do with the actual man, and more to do with his pattern of choice: plaid. Well ladies can rock a plaid flannel just as well as men can! And here’s proof:
bold plaid coat = outfit-maker
