It's almost Labor Day, and if you aren't headed to the beach, planning to be on a boat or playing at a yacht club, you need to reassess your priorities. Below is the FashioN Farmers packing list for a weekend away. From casual afternoon shopping about to a polished party look, we have gathered every item you'll be needing for this last weekend before the summer sun sets on us. . .
White on white is the newest Canadian Tuxedo, and you don't even have to be in the Hamptons to pull it off. Take a clean oxford and throw it on with a pair of tailor white pants, or make it a bit more urban with some white denim. Shorts, tanks, blouses, button ups, anything thats white, just start layering. White on white is one way to freshen and refine a drab day (like Monday).
I don't have to tell you that matching separates (aka Co-ords to our UK fashion friends), are the newest/coolest thing since sliced bread. I can't get enough of em. Check out the FFs round up below and get matchy matchy right now!
The east coast thinks they know what the ocean is, but does the Atlantic even really count? As a hot-headed Pacific ocean native, and with no offense intended, I feel it is my duty to provide the New Yorkers I surround myself with every day the proper guidance in seeking out the bathing suit options for the summer months. From one pieces, to teeny bikinis, the following swimwear is the hottest, and no it is not from J.Crew . . .
If you ask me, the printed pant trend has only just begun, and can be taken as far as you damn well please. Below are the FFs picks when it comes to every style of printed pant. Whether its flared and floral or carrot-legged and camo, feast your eyes on a lovely selection of summer printed pants.
Some like it short, others like it long. Take a look below for a glimpse at the varying skirt lengths we're seeing this summer. Crop off a long skirt with a little mid-drift, or keep it covered up-top and hike up the hemlines down low.
It's a fact that the 4th of July is totally tacky. I'm pretty sure it is common knowledge that nobody EVER wants to wear a flag/stars and stripes unless you're in the backyard of a frat house at a state school, where theres a blow up kiddy pool and bucket of Andre to bob from. But the weirdest part about this tacky holiday is that I totally like to embrace it. And with this Fourth of July shopping guide, I will give you the tools you need to build a Fourth of July wardrobe that will not disappoint. Feast your eyes . . .
We're having a Fashion Monday moment today, and it is all about ex-boyfriend jeans. Ex-boyfriend jeans are the ones that look like you ripped them up in an angry rage when they finally pissed you off to the point of no return, and then you looked at the jeans, tilted your head, and went, wait... these are cute! Now that sneakers are chic, so are ex-boyfriend or boyfriend jeans. I just can't wait until footie-pajamas make it to the top of the trends. But until then boyfriend jeans work fine. They're perfect for a casual brunch or afternoon date, but can be dressed up for a work day or a date night. Throw on some strappy sandal heels and boyfriend jeans go from comfy to sexy in an instant. Throw on some flat sandals and keep it casual chic for the office. Pictured above are the KUT Catherine Boyfriend Jeans. See below for the Fashion Farmers little black book of the best distressed boyfriend jeans.
It's silly how we will watch a trend for a while and think so long about how we want to buy those super ugly jelly sandals or buy jeans with holes in the butt, sometimes we're so happy we didn't jump on the band wagon and show the homeless man on the corner what the color of your Hanky Pankys were through your "Ultra-Distressed Boyfriend" jeans you paid $340 for at Barneys. You never want to be in that position. Ever. HOWEVER One trend I am finally ready to play ball with is the short suit. Not only does the short suit dance around the mono-chrome print stacking trend, but the look is polished and flirty all at the same time. Check out this gorgeous Zara combo. My rule for the short suit is to go for the craziest print you can find without looking like a clown. Because who buys the black short suit anyway.
