FashionModel Moment: Bregje Heinen

Time for another model moment! Earlier this month, we traveled to the east coast to shoot our first ever lookbook on the streets of New York! It was an amazing day shooting around Soho and the West Village filled with the people, puppies, and the hustle and bustle of daily New York life! We invited iconic beauty, Bregje Heinen, to model our fave fall styles. With plush outerwear, classic jumpsuits, and our favorite fall dresses, we took to the streets to bring Lulus to the Big Apple!

We took a moment for a behind-the-scenes chat with model bae, Bregje for a quick Q&A! Read on for more!

5 things that people don’t know about you?

1) I’m obsessed with horror movies.
2) I love video games.
3) I don’t like alcohol.
4) I love hip hop.
5) I’m scared of snakes.

Craziest photo shoot experience?

There were many,  I can’t think of a specific one! One of the craziest ones was years and years ago a cosmetics brand where they put fake boobies and butt on me and a crazy wig. It was really cool!

You have 3 super cute french bulldogs! What are their names and your favorite thing to do with your pups?

Norma, Harry and Winston! I love cuddling and playing with them that’s really how I spend most of my days. They all sleep in bed with us.

What is Norma’s favorite people food?

She loves apples.

What is your guilty pleasure meal?

Jeeze, there are so many but I love Mcdonald’s, Ihop and Taco Bell :)

How did you and your fiance meet?

Through a mutual friend. I knew he had a crush on me but when we first met he wasn’t talking to me very much. But it worked cause I was like, “Hmmm, challenge accepted.”

What is your fave date night with your fiance?

We’re very easily pleased. Nothing too fancy, we love going out to get food but prefer a low key spot. Then we enjoy catching a horror movies in the theater!

Can’t live without beauty product?

I love Dr. Sturm and Tatcha everything! My must haves are Dr. Sturm SPF 50 drops to protect your skin against sun damage. It’s so so sooooo important! Another good one is COOLA self tanner. I try not to tan because it ages you so much so it’s a good alternative since nobody likes to be pale.  My good friend and amazing makeup artist Misha Shazada recommend these products and I can’t live without them!

Describe your teenage style.

A mess.

What are your fave trends for fall?

I honestly don’t really follow many trends. I kind of wear whatever I feel like but I’m really into the 90s vibe lately.

FashionFall Textures 2017

From the satin jacket you practically start living in come the first chilly day to the embellished leather jacket you’ve had tucked in the back of your closet since June to all suede everything, these are the trademarks of a fall wardrobe and their styling possibilities are limitless! We’re fully crushing on everything fall and can’t get enough of the luxe textures featured in our cool-weather staple outfits. Seriously, the only thing better than how these outfits look is how they feel! Check out our handpicked round up of our fave fall textures and shop your faves!

Satin

Satin is one of our very favorite trends for fall, but it is a look that can be particularly tough to pull off, especially at work.  However, the classic silhouette and rich burgundy hue of our High-Spirited Burgundy Satin Jacket makes it feel totally office-worthy, especially when paired with a little black satin dress and simple accessories for a sleek look. You can style a satin top or blazer with a great pair of jeans or pair a satin bomber with jeans and a white tee for a more casual take on this dressy fabric.

Embellishments

This season, we’re loving all kinds of embellishments to up the cool factor in cozy sweater season. Pretty embroidery adds subtle texture and interest to even the most basic pieces, keeping your go-tos fresh for 2017. This trend is a glamorous, but not too over-the-top look you might try if you’re aiming for statement making outfits without much effort. Try wearing our Rock ‘n’ Rose Black Embroidered Vegan Leather Moto Jacket with a pair of black ripped jeans and carry a clutch for a polished look that will contrast nicely with some chic black suede booties.

Suede

Incorporating suede into your wardrobe is V easy and it’s a quick way to elevate your look, not to mention how beautiful and soft the material is! Any suede jacket will give your entire fall wardrobe a winning upgrade. Need a go-to outfit? Try our Suede with Love Tan Suede Moto Jacket with an OTS black bodysuit and your fave pair of denim.

FashionBlogger Babes Show You How to Wear Moody Florals

As we all know, florals are not just for sunny days – they are here to stay through the chilly seasons! If you saw our 4 Ways to Rock Florals post, you know all the different ways you can rock florals and all the current moody floral trends.

We’ve rounded up a few looks we love from of our favorite blogger babes. Each of them flawlessly put together a moody floral ensemble, perfect for transitioning into fall days and nights…and are bound to give you major moody floral outfit inspo!

Is a Fall wedding in your near future? We love this off-the-shoulder floral dress worn by Alyssa. Its statement sleeves and flowy fabric make it the ideal wedding guest dress! Darker florals are a foolproof way to feel whimsical, yet seasonally appropriate for any special event this year.

While vacationing in the south of France, Diipa rocks our Simple Pleasure Burgundy Floral Maxi…giving us the ultimate travel bug! The burgundy and orange floral pattern makes this maxi a great transitioning piece for Fall. Throw on your favorite leather jacket and booties for a Fall night out!

Feeling elegant? Our Every Little Thing Black Maxi  is the epitome of moody elegance! We love the high neck detail and fluttery sleeves, making it appropriate for any event coming your way. We loved how Anna paired it with a statement metallic clutch and matching layered necklace to complete her feminine outfit.

Long sleeve dresses will always be one of our fave Fall staples! Lulus babe Monica is cocktail ready in our Picturesque Piece Black Long Sleeve Dress, which she styled to perfection. We love how she paired it with dainty ankle strap heels and statement bag, making it a foolproof outfit for transitioning into Fall.

Nude heels are a floral pattern’s best friend! Finding the perfect shoe can be a bit daunting whilst wearing a patterned outfit, but Olia made a chic choice by pairing her navy floral dress with a fall friendly closed toe nude pump. Nude pumps also brighten up deeper toned floral outfits, making your moody floral ensemble ready for everyday wear.

We’re obsessed with Monica’s floral frock for its rich color pallet and hemline detail. Don’t be afraid to bring spring and summer hemlines into fall! Pair shorter dresses with over-the-knee boots to warm up your outfit, and layer with one of our personal faves–the Suede With Love Moto Jacket.

How will you be wearing your moody florals this season? Show us how you rock your florals into fall by using #lovelulus!

FashionMVP Trend of the Week: Velvet

It’s a fabric typically reserved for holiday time but velvet is officially cutting the line this fall, meaning there’s no time like the present to get in on the trend. No longer the stuff of your pouf-sleeved childhood party dresses (white tights and maryjanes, anyone?), the plush pieces of today are decidedly stylish, sexy, and cool.

Try pairing this fancy fabric with denim, menswear suiting, leather or lace. From slip dresses to ankle boots, there’s a way to work the fabric for day or night – and well before winter rolls around. Because who wants to wait that long to add some luxe to their look anyway? Ahead, 10 ways to get that velvet vibe in your life ASAP.
