FashionHow To Slay The Corset Belt!

Corset belts are a new season essential we are totally crushin’ over. This trend is making a MAJOR statement this year and it’s the perfect accessory to add detail to a button up shirt or define your waist in an oversize jacket or simple shift dress! And in case you haven’t noticed, lace-up details are all the rage when it comes to fall fashion. This trend comes in a wide variety: dresses, blouses, shoes, swimwear, you name it. And we love how a lace up piece adds a bit of bohemian look to any outfit! Check out our lace-up detail collection below!

We love the lace up belts to wear over graphic tees and oversized collared shirts, as you can see from our roundup below on how to wear lace up belts with just about anything. The options are unlimited. What color? Lace up or buckle? Narrow or wide? Leather or fabric? The beauty of the belt is that it works over so many different pieces that you are likely to already have in your wardrobe, ranging from super casual to all dressed up!

It’s clearly an eyecatcher, and a simple way to spruce up a regular outfit with some style! Corset belts will do wonders when you need to have that waist snatched in an oversized tunic or a simple dress. Add a pair of black heels and round frame sunnies and the look is complete!

Whether you layer the belt over a floral summer dress or throw one on over a long dress with ankle boots for a transitional look, these belts can create some seriously cool outfits you’ll want to slip right into!

outfit 4

We especially love the way it looks with a baggier dress or t-shirt dress that wouldn’t normally highlight your waist, making it great for any babe who wants to show off her curves! Go for the Kylie Jenner inspired look and add some thigh high boots for a sexy vibe!

It’s a trend to be tried this season and it’s definitely the statement of the season! Would you wear a corset belt? Tell us in the comments or show us with #lovelulus on Instagram!

FashionFall Denim Trends for 2017

When summer fades away and you are ready to retire your cutoffs and short skirts (for now!), fall is the perfect time to explore new denim trends and add some updated staple pieces to your wardrobe rotation. You’ve caught up on our summer denim trends, now let’s explore four new fall denim looks we’re excited to add into our wardrobe. Be sure to check the bottom of the post for how to shop these fave finds!

Fall Trends - Black Denim

LITTLE BLACK DENIM
The LBD to your fall denim collection is much like your Little Black Dress – it’s a staple piece and an essential to your wardrobe. Dressed up or down, the little black denim pant is your best friend as it flatters your figure and never fails to make you look your best. Our Practice Makes Perfect Black High-Waisted Skinny Jean, Cheap Monday Mid Skin Black Skinny Jeans, and PAIGE Hoxton Black High-Waisted Skinny Jeans are all perfect choices to fit your price point.

Fall Trends - Two-Toned Denim

TWO-TONED
Can’t decide between two pairs of denim? Wear both! Look fashion forward this fall in two-toned denim and get the best of both worlds. Bold mixes and contrasting washes are the perfect details to play up an outfit. Try out this cool trend with our EVIDNT Malibu Blue Dip Dyed Two-Tone Cropped Jeans.

Fall Trends - Olive Denim

ALL ABOUT OLIVE
The cold weather doesn’t have to confine you to an all black wardrobe (although we do love it!). Add color back into your fall wardrobe with a pair of olive-colored denim. This staple fall color adds the right amount of pop without going over the top. Our Free People High Rise Busted Olive Green Distressed Skinny Jeans is the perfect pair to give your denim collection some colorful life.

Fall Trends - Center-Seamed Denim

CENTER SEAM
If you’re looking to mix up your denim collection without straying too far from your usual style, look no further. The center-seamed accent runs along the front of your jeans and adds an understated, yet cool detail to your wardrobe while elongating your legs. Explore the trend with our EVIDNT Hermosa Medium Wash Cropped Skinny Jeans.

Sock Boots

fall footwear - sock booties
One of the most coveted trends of the season so far has been the sock boot. Celebrities like Kendall Jenner and Beyoncé have been wearing this trend all summer long and there’s no sign of it going anywhere soon. Not only is this trend super flattering, it’s versatile as well! Whether you’re pairing sock boots with your favorite denim, or a sexy cocktail dress for a night out, the style is sure to become your go-to for fall.

Pointed Pumps

fall footwear - pointed pumps
One of fall’s most feminine shoe trends we’ve seen so far is the pointed pump. This season we’re updating the classic pump every fashion girl has in their closet by choosing styles with a sleek, pointed toe. Show off your sophisticated side in the Milan Black Nubuck Slingback Pumps and seamlessly transition from office to happy hour. Or add some drama to your wardrobe with a pointed pump in a metallic floral print or a rich fall shade with lace-up details.

Metallics

fall footwear - metallics
No matter what style of shoe you’re coveting this fall, there’s a metallic option out there that will elevate your fall wardrobe. From boots, loafers, pumps and beyond, there are endless options of how to wear this luxe trend.

FashionMust-Have Statement Sleeves For Fall!

Statement sleeves have become the staple shirt for every fashionista’s wardrobe and they are anything but a passing trend! Designed in a vast range of prints, patterns, and silhouettes, the statement sleeve is our number one must-have for the season. With so many exaggerated bell sleeves and stand out styles coming in daily, we hope this roundup of our faves inspires you to give this trend a try.

Sleeve Envy

It’s all about the exaggerated sleeve and there are so many options, from bell to billowy shaped, ruffled to extra long lengths – the list goes on and on! All these statement sleeve styles are making a bigger appearance in fashion this year, and we are OBSESSED!

1st set

There are so many fun ways you can add this trend into your daily wardrobe; one of our go-to looks is to pair it with your favorite denim jeans, accentuate with a timeless, bare-it-all ankle strap high heel sandal, and glam it up with gold hoop earrings like the ones shown above.

Whether you’re hitting the town with your girl group or on the hunt for the perfect date night outfit, this trend is just what your closet needs. Because the focus of the outfit should be on the sleeves, it looks fresh and chic to keep your accessories minimal and classic when you wear statement sleeve anything.

2nd set

Bell sleeves were popular back in the 70s and they’re finally making a comeback this season in a major way. If you’re looking for the easiest kind of statement sleeves to pull off, bell sleeves may just be what you are looking for. If you’re searching for the right sleeve, but aren’t into the flowing look, just look for structured materials. Updated for 2017, the new bell sleeve is chic and modern, which will give a sophisticated vibe, while still being so on trend!

3rd set

Flare and volume is what this fall is all about; the fussier the sleeve, the finer the outfit! While this post is all about the statement sleeves, the outfit below features two other major trends to know this season. The first are dramatic cat eye sunglasses, which have been popping up everywhere, and we LOVE the look.  The other trend we are calling out in this post is the black (vegan) leather skirt. We love the staple because it’s perfect for transitioning into fall. Complete the ensemble with a pair of cool, heeled ankle boots, and you’ve got a perfect outfit for the season.
