Read our list, check it twice, then grab a few friends and make your holiday season extra nice!
Following the luxury and sparkle of the November holiday book, our December catalog always feels like a breath of fresh air. It has a refreshing lightness to it, like a step in the direction of spring, but full of easy, comfortable looks that are all I want to wear this winter. Read More
Publications are always telling us which colors to wear. Are we calling it nude or blush this season? Open up a magazine, and you’ll see how neons are all the rage. We’re color obsessed! One of the most fun things to do is experiment with color. We’ve been doing exactly that here at Free People which has led us to settle on color POPS as our must have look this season. We love pairing these bright hues back to neutrals – dusty pinks, elephant grey, black and white –letting them make their statement, and grabbing the eye. My question for all of you is – which piece will you be popping?
The Cropped Lace Tube
Star Straw Fedora
Grand Master Long Sleeve Boy Top
Brighter Days Scarf
FP 5 Pocket Ankle Crop Skinny
Neon Terry Space Dye Sock
Lace-Up Cord Shorts
Grunge has been on our minds. It’s the cool revival of the 90’s with an “I don’t give an F” attitude. Washed and distressed pieces – leather and studs. We’re channeling Alice Dellal and Kurt Cobain as we layer it on.
Last week we invited some blogger friends down to help us interpret the look. We piled all of our latest cutoff shorts, leather jackets, grunge tees, boots, and washed pieces into a display – letting them go at it: styling and telling us which items they liked best.
First up: Christina Caradona of Trop Rouge
Christina (pictured above in our Long Sleeved Mixed Graphic Baseball Tee, Gilded Santorini Collar, and her own jeans) took on the grunge trend effortlessly. She looks like one tough chick you wouldn’t want to mess with. Perhaps, because she already has a lot of that come as you are, carelessly sexy look you need to pull it off. The clothes wore so naturally on her, making the trend surprisingly organic and hard feeling at the same time. Below she models in our We the Free Reverse it Kachow Thermal, Denim Cutoff Shorts, and Painted Distress Boot.
After trying on and experimenting with many items, Christina tells us what her top five picks are for grunge:
Before she left we asked Christina to fill out a questionnaire for you all. Time to let her speak for herself!
when our team returned from shooting our december catalog with photos of the incredible western landscape, memories of my own road trip out west came flooding back. utah, colorado, arizona and new mexico are home to some of the most beautiful land i’ve ever seen – national parks, forests, monuments, campgrounds, rivers, mountains and more. i put together a little map of the four corners region and some of the amazing places you’ll find there.
this trip would be meadow’s holiday getaway of choice- taking off on a road trip with friends to explore the western landscape. camping at zion, swimming in lake powell and picking up turquoise jewelry and dream catchers at old road stops along the way.

last week’s poll was very close but the winner was the fp one clara in lace dress with 35%.
our december catalog was shot at the amangiri resort in utah by photographer chrissy piper, featuring models martha hunt and izzy marshall. shades of brown and rust to highlight the earthy landscape with pops of turquoise, and delicate crochet and lace roughened up with biker boots and suede. the catalog was inspired by easy rider attitude and freedom of the open road and as i look through its pages i can’t help but hear the plucking of guitar strings and neil young’s voice…
“somewhere on a desert highway, she rides a harley davidson, her long blonde hair flyin’ in the wind, she’s been runnin’ half her life, the chrome and steel she rides, colliding with the very air she breathes…”
