FashionPearl Embellishments are the New Way to Rock a Classic Trend

When it comes to fashion, you can hardly get more classic than pearls: they’re the kind of iconic fashion staple that gets handed down through the generations and never go out of style. So it’s kind of hard to imagine there’s a way to wear them that feels new, right? Well, hold that thought.

While we’ll never tire of Chanel-style strands, the freshest way to rock the ladylike bauble thing is on your clothing, shoes, accessories, and more as an embellishment. On your destroyed denim jacket? Sure. Trimming your block heels? Absolutely. Adorning your cool-girl beret? Yes, please. From all out to just a touch, there’s more than a handful of ways to get pearl details in your life — and your look — while staying true to your own unique vibe.  So whether you’re edgy or ultragirly, or somewhere in between, scroll on for our favorite pearly picks that will up your wardrobe game this season.

FashionThree Stylish Ways to Wear an Army Jacket

It’s hard to find a more instantly cool outfit-maker than an army jacket. Aside from the ultra flattering hue that looks good on everyone — and pairs well with almost any color — this topper just seems to have endless styling possibilities. One of our favorite ways to rock it? Using the opposites attract rule. Yes, in fashion, mixing pieces that are totally different almost always yields super stylish results. See what we mean ahead, with three unexpected army jacket outfits you’ll want to cop ASAP.

1. Shine On: A military inspired jacket is inherently rugged, so dress it up with sequins, then balance out the look with ankle booties. The result? A day/night mix that looks great at any hour.

2.  Punk Prep: When leopard meets plaid, you get instant It-Brit style. When you add an army jacket? Pure fashion magic.

3. Girlish Glam:  Offset the jacket’s masculine vibe with a bright, feminine floral. Complete with gold heels, a polished handbag, and sparkly earrings and you’ve totally mastered the boy-meets-girl thing.

FashionMVP Trend of the Week: Winter White

By now, you know the “No white after Labor Day” thing is a myth – and it’s a good thing, too, what with all of the fresh, stylish options available in the winter. After the holidays, it’s always nice to take a break from metallics and jewel tones and slip into some palette-cleansing, chic, snowy shades. The easiest way to do white the cold-weather way? Choose pieces with texture and detail and don’t be afraid to mix them. Try shades of stark white, cream, and ivory from head to toe for an ultra crisp, monochromatic look.  Or, add buff colored items like fringed knits and studded booties into your regular rotation to rejuvenate your look.  After all, rules were made to be broken, right? Ahead, all of the winter white stunners we are crushing on right now.

FashionAn Interview with Sinead Crowe: UK Fashion Blogger Extraordinaire

We finally got the chance to get the inside scoop from our fave fashion blogger from across the pond, and Lulus babe through and through, Sinead Crowe!

Read on for our exclusive interview and follow her on Instagram @sineadcrowe for more outfit envy!

What are the differences in personal style you notice between the US and the UK?

I feel like American style is way more laid back, not sure if that’s just the girls I follow though as I am a huge Insta-stalker of all the Cali girls like Sincerely Jules!

Perfect breakfast?

I love acai bowls! They’re my go-to breakfast right now, but for a treat I love a good eggs benedict!

Coffee order?

I’m the annoying customer, haha I order a large latte with half a shot of decaf coffee.

We’re loving your Instagram OOTD’s, what’s your everyday uniform?

I used to have a definite everyday uniform but I’ve definitely become more playful and experimental with my style! I would say right now I am living in fur coats and my grey Supergas from Lulus!

We love a girl’s night, what’s your go-to night out look?

I am a super casual dresser and always struggle with what to wear for an evening look because I have to be comfy! I’ll usually go for a skirt and a jumper (sweater) with heels!

What’s your beauty routine like?

My beauty routine definitely depends on my mood. Sometimes I’ll take ages over every detail, and sometimes I’ll slap on the closest thing in 5 minutes! I love cleansing balms right now and I swear by eye cream!

The Baker Boy hat is one of our fave fall accessories. What are some other trends you are excited for this winter?

I am obsessed with baker boy hats! I also love the beret, but I just don’t think it suits me! Fur coats are my weakness right now, I have around 7 and counting…

We’re obsessed with your pup Penelope, what’s her personality like?

She is SO independent! She’s got so much character, and she’s scared of NOTHING! She’s fearless!

Okay, we’re dying to know, what are some chic spots to visit in London for fashion girls?

My favorite places to visit are the Chiltern firehouse, The Ivy (their parmesan truffle fries are THE BEST), The Clerkenwell Grind, and Bourne & Hollingsworth is SO beautiful!

We’re inspired by your openness on your blog about dealing with anxiety, and living with positivity, any tips for girls dealing with the same obstacles?

My first tip for anyone who comes to me for advice on anxiety is to throw away any books that talk about anxiety and go through the feelings. They just make me focus in on it and create more anxiety. Instead I focus on being as positive as possible, and I don’t let other people’s actions and moods affect mine.

What’s something people would be surprised to learn about you?

My all-time favorite snack is twiglets (a vegemite flavored pretzel-like snack) dipped in milk! I love weird food combos!

Thanks, Sinead! You’re the best!
