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.

Graduation Party Style: What to Wear

Congratulations to the class of 2018!! Whether it be high school or college, it’s time to celebrate! If you’re attending a graduation and/or graduation party this summer, we know how proud you are of the recent grad, but we also know there might be something else on your mind… what will you be wearing to the festivities? We want you to find an outfit that you are comfortable in while sitting throughout the graduation, while hugging the recent grad, while jumping up and down trying to get photos, and of course, while celebrating at the grad party. If you’ve been pulling a classic student move and procrastinating, we’ve got you covered. We’ve prepared a few graduation party looks that are now available at La Ree!

Graduation Party Style Pomp and Circumstance Style
It’s okay to admit it, you want to be comfortable while sitting waiting for graduation speeches to end so you can leap up and snap a photo of the grad walking across the stage. And you’re going to be sitting for a while, because you got there early to get a good seat, of course. Long sleeves and paired with a long maxi skirt will keep you warm or cool no matter the weather.
Wearing: Vanessa Seward Florentin Blouse, Isabel Marant Belinda Wrap Skirt, ATP Carmen Heel, Jerome Dreyfuss Popoche Clutch, and the Jewels By Piper Coin Necklace 
Graduation Party StyleDinner Celebration Style 
Headed out to a formal dinner with the grad’s family? You’ll need something that can be dressed up or down depending how formal the dinner will be. Plus, restaurants can be cold! Be sure to choose a dress that can be layered with a nice jacket or sweater. Add some sparkle with gold flats and stunning subtle jewelry.
Wearing: Ulla Johnson Penninah Dress, Marla Aaron Baby Lock Necklace, Marla Aaron Curb Chain Bracelet, Ampersand as Apostrophe Navy X Pouch and the Ancient Greek Metallic Slides. 

Graduation Party styleBackyard Barbecue Style 
What goes better with graduations than barbecues? If you’re attending a backyard graduation party, a fun summer dress paired with wedges (no sinking into the grass!) is the perfect style combo. Barbecues can be hot. Wearing a light and loose dress will ensure that you enjoy every moment of the party. Then, pair with a favorite jean jacket as the sun goes down.
Wearing: Raquel Allegra Check Shirt Dress, Ampersand as Apostrophe Sideways Tote, ATP Lecola Heel

Graduation Style Brunch Celebration Style
If you’re traveling for a grad, you’ll want to get as much time with them as you can. Brunch the day after the graduation is likely in order. This look is perfect for brunch because it is easy to pack, easy to throw on and looks great no matter where brunch is (at home or at a restaurant). Plus, if you’re hopping on a plane right after brunch, switch out the heels for flats, and your’e ready to fly.
Wearing: Giada Forte Silk Dress, Le Kasha Long Cardi, Isabel Marant Snake Heels, Jewels by Piper Diamond Shaker Necklace 

We hope these looks have you covered so you won’t be pulling an all nighter packing the perfect looks. If you’re looking for more pre-graduation prep, come by the store and we’ll be happy to help!

Spring Break Jetsetter Style

The kids are out of school, it’s still too cold to spend much time outdoors, time to get on a plane and head to somewhere warmer, somewhere more relaxing, somewhere you can say “ahhh…” Or maybe it’s time for a little international travel (did someone say Paris?) to get out the overcast winter jitters. Or maybe you enjoy the staycation, relaxing in your own home without dealing with flights and travel. No matter what your spring break style, we’ve got the perfect looks for your vacation. This week, we picked out a few pieces that match some of our favorite spring break vacations.

Desert nights R13 Frayed Denim

Take me somewhere warm
Take a break in the desert. Spend the day out in the sun, then strolling the cool streets looking for the perfect dinner restaurant.
Toss on the R13 slouch short, Nili Lotan Verano Cami, and K Jacques Zenobie Sandal. Pair with the Le Kasha Cashmere Cardi for extra warmth as the day cools off to evening. 

NYC to Paris Spring Break Style

Big city, bright lights bound
No matter your destination, from NYC to Paris, this look will have you strutting your signature style down the streets of the big city.
Pair the Frank and Eileen Denim Barry Collared Shirt, Nili Lotan Salvora Jacket, 6397 Shorty Jean, Camo Golden Goose Sneakers and Jerome Dreyfus Felix Bag for a perfect night out on the town.

Mountain Bound Spring Break Vacation

You’ll find me on the slopes 
If you and your family just cannot get enough of winter sports, hit the road and drive north. Whistler spring breaks are filled with skiing, hot tubs, hot drinks, and great food.
When you’re not on the slopes, bundle up in the Reversible Isabel Marant Hanae Jacket, R13 Boy Skinny Jean, and your favorite pair of Golden Goose Slides

Staycation Spring Break Style

Home is where the heart (and my bed) is 
If your looking forward to a Spring Break Staycation, we feel you. Your own bed, your own kitchen, no traffic, no travel. Plus, all your other staycation friends are around. Gather up your best girlfriends and check out that restaurant that is normally too busy to get into.
Your staycation style is your own. Here’s what we would wear: The 6397 Good Vibes Tee, Veronica Beard Cara Jean Jacket, Aspesi Cotton Check Pants, and our Robert Clergerie Wendy Slides

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

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

Bright Summer Whites

Can we first just say how happy we are that we don’t have to follow these “no whites before Memorial Day. No whites after Labor Day” rules any more? Winter whites have been a welcome addition to our dark grey, green, brown, black winter wardrobes. We are more than happy to extend white’s season beyond the sunniest of summer days. Still, white is a classic summer color. It could be called THE color of summer. How can we separate white from memories of beaches, big floppy hats, mimosas in the sunshine, and lots of seafood? It’s always part of our ideal summer picture.

In celebration of all things summer, we’re getting out our sunglasses and cocktails a little early this year and picking out our favorite summer whites.
