Style File: Assistant Graphic Designer

Our Assistant Graphic Designer is fairly new to the company. She came on the scene with a giant smile and quirky style. To my experience, she showed up in a meeting one day with bright points to contribute and a dress that was to die. Graphically, her designs feel fresh. Fashion-wise, she has a cool vintage look and sticks too it. It’s full of tough to replicate, one-of-a-kind items that always come together perfectly. In Free People terms – the Molly style with its own spin – of this tiny, beautiful, and full-of-light character are freshly inspirational. Read on and see what I mean… Read More

Office Style: Shorts vs. Dresses

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….

Style File: Senior Graphic Designer

I’ve always thought that our Senior Graphic Designer has amazing style, but for some reason I was under the impression that she was one of those who aren’t a big fan of having their photo taken. I’ve since discovered that I was wrong, and so to make up for lack of showcasing this woman’s amazing style, I decided to feature her as this week’s Style File.

One great aspect to our Graphic Designer’s fashion is her keen eye for texture and pattern. She understands pieces, and how to show off their interesting features. For example, she’ll layer a fun color underneath to show off a top layer’s loose knit, or she’ll call attention to a bold, retro-inspired pattern by stacking it up with basics. Either way, she’s great at creating a balance so that her looks never look like too much.

I’m also a HUGE fan of this woman’s ring collection. She has a great assortment of chunky knuckle decoration full of cute animals and edgy cuts. She’s not afraid to pile on the rings, and will often pair them back to a sweet choker.

Equally as impressive, is her awesome shoe collection. She’s a big heel girl, and her shoes always have attitude. The good sturdy heel gives her look a nicely confident spin.

Overall, her wardrobe of fun pieces is gutsy and playful. It never gets boring seeing what this girl is going to wear to the office.

The Polka Dot Blouse pops perfectly with her bright red booties







Get the look with a large gauge knit like this and the a fun colored buttondown like our Sheer Buttondown Tunic in Mint Julep.






Here she updates the poncho by wearing it in a totally modern way layered over a basic button up and shorts.




Try a great choker with a collared shirt to get the look. The Tribal Triangle Collar is a great option to do it with at an easy price .








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?
