Mixing Prints, Patterns, and Plaids

Sometimes all it takes to amp up your personal style is a little daring. Mixing patterns and prints can be a tricky fashion move. Stick to these fashion do’s and you’ll be a pro at mixing your prints, patterns, and plaid.

Mixing PrintsTone it Down
If you’re like us, you love both camo and leopard and will get the wild urge to wear them together. It’s totally doable. The trick here is to make sure the tones are similar. Here, we have two muted tones of camo and leopard, which works perfectly. Pairing these pieces with simple bottoms and shoes completes the look while complementing your fashion savvy.

Shoes, Shoes, Shoes – Robert Clergerie & Isabel Marant New Arrivals

“Life is short, buy the shoes.” We have to say we are die hard believers in this mentality. If something is beautiful and it makes you happy, you will enjoy having it in your life. And what we love most about the shoes we have in store now is that they are not only beautiful, but they are also practical. These are shoes that will become your go to. They are comfortable, with a heel that is easy to walk in, either chunky, or low, or both! Plus, each shoe has that special something about it that will add that spice to your outfit and inspire shoe envy in everyone you walk by. IMG_0410

Feelin’ Golden
We can’t help but kick up our heels just a little higher when we’re wearing these Robert Clergerie Keyla Boots. A simple shoe from the front, it is all style from the back. This shoe is simple enough to be dressed down (as we’ve done here), and classy enough to be dressed up.
Paired with the Isabel Marant Maria Blouse and Amo Loverboy Jeans

Update the Classics 
We love our black pumps. You can wear those things anywhere. But, these Robert Clergerie Kenneth Heels are going to give those pumps a run for their money. Comfortable enough to wear all day (chunky heel? Yes, please), and stylish enough to make a statement, these are a business wardrobe must-haves. (PS if you’re like us and don’t dress business casual for work, pair with a fun top and your fave jeans, like Rachael is wearing above).
Paired with Nili Lotan Vanna Blouse, Amo Stix Crop Jeans, Celine D’Aoust Ring, and
Jamie Joseph Earrings

Rocker Chic
These Isabel Marant Dawyna Boots pair so naturally with different looks, you’ll be shocked at how often you end up pulling them out the closet to wear. The low heel ensures they are great for all day when your sneakers are going to cut it. And, did you notice that chic detailing on the back of the heel? It’s the details that really make these shoes a showstopper.
Paired with Nili Lotan Jenna Pant and Nili Lotan Leyton Sweater

IMG_3610 IMG_3613

Made for Walking
We had to go there, especially with these Isabel Marant Latsen Tall Boots. Knee high boots are always a statement. Wear these with a short dress, or a maxi and let them peek out when your sitting down. You can also wear them over pants throughout fall and winter. Their neutral color leaves the outfit opportunities up to you and your imagination.
Paired with Giada Forte Habotai Silk Dress and a Jewels by Piper necklace

In addition to these shoes, we also have sneakers, sandals, and more heels in store. Plus, some are part of our Spring/ Summer ’18 Sale! Walk into the store and strut out with a new pair of your favorite shoes!

Leap into Leopard: Pre-Fall Looks You Can Wear All Summer

What is pre-fall anyway? As you may have guessed by the name, it is the fashion “seaonlet” that comes before fall but after spring/summer. The pre-fall seasonlet is similar in size to resort season, which comes before summer/spring and is designed to fit people’s vacation style fancies. It is a smaller collection put out by designers to transition between the seasons. Sometimes pre-fall collections will give a hint of what is to come or they can be an extension of the spring/summer line, and other times they stand alone. Even though we’re just barely making it to summer in Seattle, we’re in full pre-fall season at La Ree! One of our favorite forever prints is big this pre-fall—leopard. We’ve selected a few of the great leopard print pieces available now in La Ree.

Nili Lotan Camo Sweater and Viviana PantSilky Sleek
Summer or fall, these silk Nili Lotan leopard pants can be styled to show off your wild side or your house cat side. Pair with a sweater for cool summer nights. Spice up the look by mixing prints, then tone it down with a solid pair of Golden Goose sneakers.

Numero 21 Leopard Skirt Pre Fall

Red Roar
Sport something truly unique with a red leopard long pencil skirt. This statement piece is colorful enough for summer, and dark enough for fall (and even red enough for holiday!) Pair with a simple tee shirt and a long jacket soften the look. Then complete the look with a pair of boots in the fall (shown here) or a pair of simple sandals or sneakers for summer.

What more can we say? These sneakers are all you need to make a statement.
Wearing: Golden Goose Leopard Slide Sneaker

Giada Forte Lurex CoatSeasonal Shimmer

Friendsgiving, Thanksgiving, or Hanging Out, We’ve Got you Covered

Anyone else ready to push pause on this year? How can we be just two weeks away from Thanksgiving already? Since we can’t actually pause time, we’ll pull out the eggnog and dive headfirst into the holiday season. If you haven’t had a moment to think about what you’re going to be wearing for the upcoming Thanksgiving festivities, we have you covered, no matter if you’re attending a Friendsgiving, a formal Thanksgiving, just lounging on the couch, or doing all three.

FRIENDSGIVING
Friendsgiving, made popular during the Recession and Friends, has since morphed into an annual celebration for friends to get together and have a fun Thanksgiving celebration before, or in lieu of, visiting their families. If you’re headed to a Friendsgiving this year, we’ve got the perfect casual and cute outfit for you to wear.

Friendsgiving Style at La Ree Boutique

Wearing: Amo Babe Tee and Twist Jean, Isabel Marant Delwood Sweater, and Clergerie Jacnec Boot

SOCIAL THANKSGIVING 
If you’re headed to a more formal Thanksgiving celebration, you’ll want to be comfortable and chic. Up your style game, with a jacket over your comfy tee shirt, and dark denim. Add cute heeled boot and a statement necklace for a that extra pizzazz.
Social Thanksgiving Wearing: 6397 Boy Tee, Vanessa Seward Velvet Jacket, Nili Lotan Alek Jean and Pedro Garcia Engel Bootie

CASUAL THANKSGIVING
If your Thanksgiving crew is more casually inclined (and, hey, why not? You’re going to be eating all day), then layer a cozy sweater over your favorite pair of jeans, toss on your sneakers, and accessorize with an early glass of wine.
Casual Thanksgiving Wearing: Joseph Chunky Cardigan, 3×1 Fray Skinny Denim, and Golden Goose Superstars 

DAY AFTER THANKSGIVING
If you’re headed out for Black Friday shopping or spending the day on the couch with family watching football, give yourself a break and forgo the jeans. Instead, plan an outfit that is comfy and stylish by pairing a cute pair of loose pants with a cozy sweater. Standing outside in cold lines? Bundle up with a cute beanie.
Day After Thanksgiving StyleWearing: Nili Lotan Elise Sweater, Raquel Allegra Easy Pant, Veronica Beard Paxton Beanie and Golden Goose Slide Sneakers

Whatever your plans for Thanksgiving, we want to wish you the very best time!
La Ree store will be closed on Thanksgiving day but back open for the rest of Black Friday weekend!
