Three words that best describe NYC style are: Urban, Elegant, Unique

What is your favorite trend this season?

Some big NYC trends for this season are peter pan collars, embellishments (studding, eyelets, gems, etc.) and playing with sheer and matte fabrics in the same garment. I have to say right now I am really into the sheer/matte fabrics!! The sheer look goes GREAT with a FP lacey bandeau!

What do you love most about New York?

Everyone has a purpose in New York. The energy of the city is like no other place. Everyone is full of major drive and ambition; it is inspiring to be in NY.

How would you describe your personal style? Which free people girl are you?

I have to say I am a Lou girl! NYC might be disappointed in me! I love to get dressed up once in a while, but you will usually catch me in baggy rugged sweaters, tunics, chunky jewelry and boots (lots of layering!) My friends would definitely say I am the “boy girl.”

My 5 favorite FP items right now:

Meet our LA Style Contest Winner!

As you may recall, we had a little contest this month in conjunction with our January catalog and its NY vs. LA theme. We picked a winner for each city, and now its time to learn a little bit more about these stylish ladies – up first, our LA winner, Eva of Cathedral City, California!

Her winning photo, rocking our sheer printed romper with a belt and turquoise accessories.

I love the relaxed vibe of this outfit! Get the look with our fairisle pullover, feather headpiece and linen extreme flare.

Looking adorable in the floral woven pullover, ankle crop jean and saddle shoes.

What do you love most about Los Angeles?

I definitely love the diversity that exists in L.A.  It’s this huge melting pot of all kinds of people…mostly strange people [haha], but that is what makes L.A. interesting and unique.  It’s one of those cities where self expression is a must.

Three words that best describe California style are: Cool, chic, and trendy.

How would you describe your personal style? Which Free People girl  are you?

I would have to say I’m Meadow and Ginger mixed into one!!  I love the relaxed, carefree, bohemian look when I’m out during the day running errands, shopping, or having lunch/coffee with friends.  But I definitely appreciate a sexy mini dress paired with 5 inch platforms when I’m hitting the town!

What is your favorite trend this season?

Colorblocking seems very popular this season…haven’t tried it yet, but definitely something I would love to try.  Who knew that not matching could ever look so cute?!?!
