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: Fall Fashion Fix!

So we totally have you covered when it comes to your fall transition wardrobe (check out our new arrivals must-haves from Bobi, below), but if you’re anything like us, sometimes it feels like your hairstyle is always stuck in last season. Before you go for something drastic, try out a look we LOVE and that is super simple to replicate at home, the Fishtail Halo Braid. We love updos in the winter because it pulls your hair up and away from the dramatic collars and statement necklaces. It will also spare you a trip to the salon and months of waiting for your hair to grow back ;)

Check out the super-easy tutorial for this fishtail halo braid and let us know what you think!

Just back from PROJECT and MAGIC!!

So I am soo excited! I had a very successful buying trip earlier this week! I have to say…. that is one of the most fun parts of my job! I get the great opportunity to view the new spring collections and make good (hopefully! Lol) decisions for my store so that I get cute, reasonable pieces in that can make a wardrobe. And man.. I did good this time! In fact, I think it was one of my best buying trips I have done.. so.. for spring trends:

Versace, Pucci and Missoni- inspired trend: This spring, everyone is coming out with a return to the basic, elegant and inspired clothing of the designers from the 60-70s.. I saw lots of Missoni, Pucci and Versace-inspired prints and I am bringing them in for you! The colors are to die for.. and the patterns show up in unexpected places such as pants, shorts and long jackets…watch our FB page for future pics!

Bohemian Chic: still a big trend but reinterpreted with more crochet, slouchy tops and headbands.. this is a look that we can all do (but maybe in limited pieces lol).. Elan will be heading that trend with easy, breezy crochets and beautiful lightweight skirts and tops.. boho chic at its best!

Plus, we are getting in more jeans.. like Miss Me but more inexpensive and super cute. Think $69-74!!! Great washes and bodies!!

Well enough for now.. stop in soon.. have a great start to Spring!!!
