If there’s one thing the holidays are for, it’s dressing outside the box. Put away those work trousers and stuff those boyfriend jeans back in the drawer, ladies! We want drama! Color! Shine! Crazy 3-D flowers covering two-thirds of your body! That’s right–this dress is just the thing we need to get in the festive mindset required for numerous nights of holiday merriment. In our dreams we’re wearing this fantastic frock while serving a perfectly Kinfolk-worthy brunch on our farm table. Or, feel free to waltz around your house in it with a bottle of champagne all to yourself, marveling at your fabulousness. We don’t judge.

Wear it Now Wednesday: Day After Thanksgiving Decorate or Dash

The turkey is eaten. The stretchy pants are in full effect. Now it’s time for some serious shopping and/or decking of the halls/tree/porch/house plant. Regardless of where your post-Turkey Day allegiances lie, we’re here to make sure you’re dressed for either scenario.

For decorating, nothing beats a festive sweater and cozy slippers (except maybe those incredible micro-fleece jogging pants–we need!) Make sure to complete your ensemble with a hot cup of cocoa.

For die-hard deal hunters, easy dressing is the name of the game. A warm layer and loose tee are easy to shed in packed fitting rooms and slip-off flats make trying on those 50% off boots a breeze.

Have a wonderful Turkey Day, darlings!

Wear it Now Wednesday: Seasonal Rebellion

Sometimes we just can’t be bothered to wear black. Yea, we said it. Fall may be all about moody, sultry shades but a girl’s got to have some whimsy in her life (and also pattern and sparkle and even the color pink). Save those fab powder blue shoes for spring? We refuse! Store away our favorite bright frock and super sparkly baubles? We would never! We mustn’t be afraid to be a little daring, darlings. And with that, we give you this little dose of happy dressing.

Wear It Now Wednesday: Layer Love

October 23, 2013 at 9:00 am , by

It’s an age old question–once the temperatures get truly chilly, how do you stay chic and warm at the same time? The key is layers, my friends! While your bulkiest pieces can leave you looking like a marshmallow if you layer up, strategic piling on of thinner pieces can look super stylish. Take the above, a loose turtleneck is decidedly unstuffy with a cozy flannel layered underneath. Add some gray denim and chic, textured flats and you’ve got a go-to look for any cold-weather wanderings. If the temps get really low, add a cocoon coat in a complimentary color and a red beanie to finish the look.

Wear it Now Wednesday: Flippy Skirts and Cozy Knits

October 16, 2013 at 9:00 am , by

Around the LHJ offices we’ve seen a trend developing. Staffers have been pairing flippy skirts of all colors, textures, and lengths with chunky, cozy sweaters. It’s a look that creates interest through contrast. After all, wearing your girliest skirt with a heavy, loose knit is the best of both worlds — sexy and alluringly tomboyish all at once. Whether you prefer a mini or longer length, this combo will become your new go-to fall outfit.

Wear it Now Wednesday: Get Cozy

Apple picking, visits to the pumpkin patch, leaf gazing, and chilly nights by a campfire — these are a few of our favorite fall things — along with boyfriend jeans, beanies, and booties. Dressing for fall is all about being cozy-yet-chic and this outfit is our idea of a perfect fall ensemble. A jacket cardigan is a softer, more casual choice than a standard boyfriend blazer and distressed jeans with a rolled cuff will give the look a little something special. Don’t even get us started on that leather tote! Buttery perfection!

Wear it Now Wednesday: She’s a Lady

We love a good moto jacket around here and luck for us, they’re a hit for fall/winter this year. Our favorite styles are tailored and a little tough with eye-catching details. Whether you prefer vegan leather (like the one above) or the real deal, there are infinite ways to style your new topper. We love the contrast in this look. The ladylike accessories and full skirt keep things feminine and allow the edgy jacket to shine.
