With Valentine’s Day just a week away, we got to thinking about our different fp girls and how they’d style their Valentine’s Day outfits and spend their evening! We asked five girls from around the office who embody Molly, Ginger, Candy, Meadow and Lou to be our models for some Valentine styling and imagined what their ideal night might hold… Read More
This week’s Style File always manages to look cute, but is never too fussy or over the top. Overall her looks have a simple beauty to them. There’s a definite Lou vibe coming through in the practical and cozy looks she gravitates towards. The look is usually centered around one knockout piece – a scarf, an awesome dress, or a pretty slip. She’ll then through the Lou vibe for a loop with some Candy thrown in there in either a feminine print or flirty lace and ruffles.
Throw a cozy sock on under your boots to live out the rest of the winter season.
We love colorful bracelets!

There’s a distinct trend in fashion that has been extremely noticeable around the office these past few months. Employees are embracing their feminine side with a look marked by retro-inspired blouses, peter pan collars, and oxford shoes. The flouncy shirts of the 40’s and 50’s are getting their second life – coming back styled with the coolness of inspirations like Alexa Chung. The retro look couldn’t be more refined and sophisticated, yet adventurous and hip at the same time. We like to pair the lady-like retro pieces back to jumpers and floppy hats for a look that we love so much, we’ve launched a new FP Girl inspired by the trend. Stay tuned next week to learn all about her, but for now, here’s a bit of ladylike and cool inspiration from around the Free People home offices…

It feels like spring today, and even if it’s just for one day, I’m rolling with it… I blame the weather for the fact that my eye went immediately to anything colorful and springlike in the office.
The amazing Atlantic Neon Rope Bracelet.
We love floral crowns for spring and summer!

I love quirky little details… today I kept noticing little things that made an outfit unique, like a little bit of leather on a denim shirt, pairing a vintage tee with a sequin vest, adding suspenders to the basic denim and tee, statement collar necklaces, striped denim and leopard, neon bracelets – you name it, our FP girls are rocking it.
You can find the neon bracelets in our stores!

This week’s style file is our Associate Buyer for accessories, who traveled to the US from England to work at Free People. Her style is quirky and avant garde. It’s full of color and pattern – often with a theme like neon or turquoise. I love the risks she takes. There’s no fear, and nothing is too outrageous. It is, however, always inspiring.

The skull bracelet is available in FP stores!
Psst… there are some April catalog sneak peeks in there! Can you guess the location??
We’re getting sick of pants. All winter long its pants, pants, pants. Now, in the name of fashion, we’re rebelling. We’re pulling on tights for an extra layer, and getting out stowed away women’s shorts, skirts and dresses. For the last week in January “vs.” office style, I want to know – which winter rebellion look do you like best? It’s the shorts vs. the dresses….
You can never go wrong with a good thermal.
The Cropped Stripes Pullover looks great with this sparkly maxi skirt!
So in love with the Costas Striped Maxi Dress Look!
It was so fun photographing our Assistant Stylist for this week’s Style File. Her carefree spirit just communicates through photographs so well. Living up to her aura, she has some of the best boho pieces around. Getting up close, you notice all of details she piles on, and sneaks in there. There’s no such thing as less is more with her, but she makes it work. She’s a true modern day hippie – loaded with fringe, feathers, and bangles. There’s something about this girl that makes you feel peaceful and smiley.

The Striped Burnout Top is the ultimate layering piece.
How cute are the T-Strap Flats? These shoes can be styled so many different ways.
This week’s StyleFile is an effortless beauty who’s style has a laid back California beach vibe. I don’t know if it’s her long, wavy blonde locks, the colorful friendship bracelets, or the heart tattoo on her wrist that scream Cali, but it’s definitely there. She wears a lot of stellar grunge pieces – ripped and splattered jeans, a slouchy knit hat, baggy tees, and kicks. She’ll then mix it up with an awesome Native American inspired necklace or poncho. There’s no doubt, she looks like your quintessential American girl – active and full of life. Her vivacity can’t be restricted with pompous or tailored clothing – she has no time for that.
This photo makes me want Summer. And colorful bracelets…

In this cold Winter weather, everyone needs a good throw on poncho to stay warm.
…and floral button up shirts…
…and doc martens!
pretty little details…
Great layering basics: the peter pan lace top (looks great on its own or under other tops and dresses!), the super-comfy laguna coast pullover, model Pania Rose in her favorite, the crafty cuff thermal, and the awesome Pink Floyd tee.
Cute glasses and hair :)
The embroidered midtown jacket looks so cool with a plaid shirt and slouchy jeans!
In line with our catalog theme this month, I thought I would do some fun vs. themed office styles. Our home office has a surprisingly bountiful population of Brits who’ve crossed the big pond to work for Free People. They all have great style, so I thought that for this week I would do British vs. American style. I love them both, but tell us, which do you relate to more??
