Elan Style: Fall Trends to Try!

Although lace and crochet may seem like a blast from the past, these two iconic trends are a must have this fall! From the runway to your wardrobe these feminine frocks can be dressed up or down.

Lace:

Lace speaks the language of love and romance. Check out our favorite lace lovelies available now at Elan Style. These dresses are sure to add a little sex appeal and sophistication to your wardrobe. Too ladylike for your tastebuds? Try toning down these frilly garments with a chunky Frye boot and a utilitarian jacket for a delicate-meets-durable look. Definitely fall worthy!

Crochet:

We know what you may be thinking…. Just because your grandmother knitted you a crochet afghan ten years ago for Christmas doesn’t mean this garment isn’t wardrobe worthy! Crochet offers up a hippy chic vibe inspired by the 70’s. Try pairing our favorite crochet cardigan with a loose print blouse, dark denim skinny jeans, and a knee-high boot for a 70’s inspired look that is oh-so-NOW!

Elan Style: Summer Accessories Report

This season is all about larger-than-life statement baubles, layers of thin and chunky rings, and glitzy earrings. When paired with high impact prints or this summer’s must-wear trend, black and white, these accessories make a chic impact.

Earrings are the cherry on top of any outfit! From a simple pair of studs to a crazy, colorful pair of dangling earrings, you really can’t go wrong — especially if you wear your hair up! Simply throw your hair into a top knot or braid it for a polished yet effortless summer style and add on statement earrings to finish off the look.

Who doesn’t love a fun necklace that completes your outfit? This summer, dress up your outfits with a cool bib necklace or a gorgeous gold, layered piece to really spice up an outfit! Try a chunky gold necklace with a boldly printed dress for a night out or a sparkly statement necklace with a mod black and white shift dress!

Haute Hues

Haute HuesWhat’s summer without a big hit of color? When the weather heats up, we’re ready to embrace a hot hues, plus, fiery red is a mood elevator and can boost confidence! And while these shades aren’t necessarily for the shy, these punchy colors can be incorporated into your outfit as little or as often as you want, making a them a perfect update for any wardrobe. Go with bluer reds if your complexion is fair; spicier orange-reds will flatter darker skin. Whatever you choose, keep hair sleek and lips neutral (red lips would be too matchy), and step out in black or nude shoes that won’t distract. And if you can, resist the urge to stop at just a pop–a long line of color is really visually slimming (not to mention completely stunning).
