Shopping The Trend: Cobalt Blue

Cobalt blue is one of those trends (and by “one of those trends” I mean “all trends”) that come back around every few years, but I always get particularly excited when fashion magazines start being like, “Have you heard of this really pretty color called cobalt blue?” because cobalt blue happens to be my favorite color. And luckily, this fall is yet another season of cobalt. Pair this bold blue with black, cream, khaki, and other neutrals, or play with more unexpected combinations like hot pink or deep red. However you wear it, here are 10 cobalt pieces to bring a bit of this fabulous trend into your fall wardrobe…

Hi/Lo: Cool Colorful Coats!

Okay, yeah, sure, you should probably have one or two neutral colored coats in your winter wardrobe – camel, black, navy, grey, whatever. But don’t you want something fun and colorful and bright and crazy to keep you warm sometimes too? Spending a bundle on an eye-catching red, blue, yellow, green or burgundy coat is probably not particularly practical, however, unless you’re Victoria Beckham. (If you are Victoria, let me take a moment to say HI POSH YOU’RE GREAT!) So I found some coats Posh would totally buy, and their affordable lookalikes for the rest of us. Shop on!

Fashion Forecast: A Sporty Puffer Vest Styled For Three Different Temperatures

A puffy down vest is a wardrobe must for anyone who lives in a cold climate, as they provide loads of heat without adding tons of bulk to your outfit. Plus, they have a whole sporty, utilitarian vibe to them that’s actually quite chic, if styled properly. Here’s how I’d wear it depending on the weather forecast…

Must Haves: 14 Cozy Mixed-Knit Sweaters

This season, chunky sweaters with unexpected patters are the ultimate weekend wear. These comfy layers provide much needed warmth, without looking frumpy.  If only my knitting skills were up to the challenge of mixing cable, pom-pom, and diamond patterns into one design! I guess I’ll just be knitting simple scarves and buying all of my mixed knit sweaters this year. Check out a few that will put your classic cable knits to shame.

 

Compassionate Fashion: Rad Tomboy Style From Tradlands

Tradlands is a new fashion company based in San Francisco with a simple mission: “Our intention is to make the best clothing for our customer, the woman who drifts towards the men’s section and thinks, ‘I wish they made this for me.’” Using fabrics and materials from the US, Tradlands designs and manufactures all of their timeless, tomboy-inspired shirts in downtown San Francisco.

I just got one of their henley shirts (pictured on the right), and I was completely blown away by the quality. After spending so many years filling my closet with flimsy Forever 21 blouses, it’s refreshing to feel fabric with a bit of weight to it, and strong seams that won’t disintegrate after two wearings. Tradlands makes the kind of shirts you’ll own and love for years, which, combined with the ethical sourcing and attention to detail, easily justifies the price.

The other thing I love about Tradlands is that even though the brand’s aesthetic is very tomboy-ish, these shirts would look just as good with a pencil skirt and high heels as they would with slouchy jeans and sneakers. So cute and versatile. Want to give Tradlands a try? Click through to check out some of their awesome options…
