Office Style: Neons and Brights

Fresh neons and loud brights have been popping all over the office lately. We love a good statement neon top and fun bracelets. We’re even scooping up neon computer cases. How do we like it styled? We love pairing the shades back to black so they really pop. Check out how we’re wearing neon for spring. Read More

Style File: Associate Buyer – Accessories

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.

Thursday Poll: Volume and Print

The Free People girl is not one to shy away from a statement. She’s bold, she takes up a lot of room, and she’s not afraid of color. She likes to push the limits, and that’s exactly why we have the most amazing collection of printed voluminous pants on the site right now. These pieces flip the rules on their head, and draw attention to the bottom half of an outfit. A few, with their flower child bohemian vibe, live in the Nouveau Boho trend while others are funky and psychedelic. We’re loving the can’t-miss-it look. Which statement, printed bottoms do you like best? Read More

How to Style: Layering from Summer to Fall

Tomorrow is the first day of September! I can’t believe fall is almost upon us. But don’t put away your favorite summer shorts, skirts or tanks just yet! You can still layer with these items going into fall and create some really cute silhouettes that are right on trend. Jemma and I worked with our videographer to make this little video showing how to style your favorite summer outfit into fall!
Song is Jonathan Fire Eater “I’ve Changed Hotels”

Look One: Layering with Maxi Skirts
Start with a skirt or similar style like the floral gauchos, one of your favorite dressy tops and heels. Add a thermal, tall boots, leather jacket and scarf to transition to fall.

Look Two: Layering with Pants
Start with any style of bottoms and a tank top and ankle boots. Add a hat, light weight cardigan and jacket to transition to fall.

Look Three: Layering with Shorts
Start with your favorite pair of shorts, summery blouse and boots. Add tights, a loose knit and hat to transition to fall.

Which look is your favorite?

Thursday Poll: High Waisted Edition

One of our favorite trends here at Free People are high waisted pants. They’re great for mixing up those proportions, and can be worn with a variety of looks. Maybe you’re going for super polished, or perhaps you’d rather look like you stepped right out of Woodstock ’69. However you wear them, high waisted pants are extremely comfortable and flattering. We love them so much that we’ve have them in all different materials now at Free People. So which will you be wearing?

Vegan Leather Makes its Free People Debut

I am beyond excited about the fact that Free People is now launching its very own line of vegan leather pieces! As I mentioned in the video, I am a vegetarian and although it doesn’t bother me when other people wear leather products, it’s not something I can bring myself to do. Which is torture, because working here I see so many amazing leather items that I love – but it seemed only natural that we would do this, being a company that loves animals so much! After months of anticipation, vegan leather is here, and I’m happy to say that my search for the perfect vegan leather jacket has ended :)

In addition to the jacket, the other items online now are the vegan leather pants, vegan leather skirt and vegan leather shorts. I love that these items can be styled in a girly way, with pretty blouses and heels, or in a boyish rock n’ roll way:

And here’s how I styled the pants for the video – I paired them with the concert raglan and sandals for an easy casual look. Clearly the boyish look is more my style :)

Your response will help determine whether we’ll continue to design into this line, so I would love to hear your thoughts on vegan leather!
