These Trends Are Making A Comeback


Early 2000s trends have finally come full circle; we’ve fallen in love with them, cringed at the sight of them, and love them all over again! Fall 2016 runways were filled with jean skirts, shearling, and exposed lace and lingerie in perfect 2000s fashion. Designers modernized these trends by changing the silhouette and styling them for a new look. Denim skirts are largely made in A-line cuts and exposed lace is styled in a much more subtle and feminine way.
Celebrities like Selena Gomez and Hailey Baldwin have turned the jean skirt from a thing of the past to a chic wardrobe staple. Pair a jean skirt with over-the-knee boots in cooler months this fall or a strappy gladiator sandal as you transition out of the warmer summer months. The A-line cut of this new wave of jean skirts make them a trendier version of their 2000s counterparts. The A-line cut looks great with a crop top for a night out and can even be dressed down with a graphic tee for a more casual look. However you wear it, the denim skirt is a classic and versatile piece that belongs in every wardrobe.

Another throwback style taking the runways by storm is shearling. Burberry models sported exaggerated shearling trim on bomber jackets in the Fall/Winter 2016 runway shows. Shearling appeared on several other designer runways for the coming season, each designed with a different style. Chloé took an entirely new approach to this comeback trend with a shearling and leather pullover, a look that is sure to extend to the masses in no time. Upgrade old sweatshirts to a shearling outer layer for a luxe and comfortable look.

Exposed lace and lingerie are rising from the ashes of the Britney/Christina era classier than ever. For Love and Lemons offers high-quality bralettes and lace pieces that perfectly embody the romantic clothing style. A lace bralette works under virtually any garment, particularly shirts with a low neckline or exposed back for a taste of femininity with exposed lace.  For Love and Lemons also features dainty lingerie-inspired dresses that look best paired with a classic pump for a night out or ankle booties and a jacket for a daytime look. This season in particular, opt for black lace pieces inspired by Alexander McQueen, Dolce & Gabbana, and Valentino for a darker, more gothic look. Whether you’re sporting a lace dress, denim skirt, or shearling pullover, make your 2002-self proud this fall with these comeback trends.

White Hot Lace Trends For Summer


Anyone who knows me knows that white lace is my thing. Though some may say I buy too much of it, it is the quintessential style to own for summer, and Muehleder has the ideal balance of dressy and casual wear for the upcoming summer season.

When shopping their latest collection, I found the Claire Lace Jumpsuit (above). This romper, though slightly revealing, could be dressed up for graduations, ceremonies, and nicer events. Pair it with classy heels and you have an outfit for any dressy occasion.

The Mariah Bandeau is a simple crop top to pair with a vibrant skirt, jeans, or colorful shorts. Though simple, it goes with nearly any pair of high-waisted bottoms and is great for a concert, summer outings, or other events. Add a pair of bright shoes and you have the perfect outfit.
Melanie Halter Dress
In general, white is a great color for a hot summer day. This Melanie Halter Dress is ideal for more conservative summer occasions. Short and simple, it’ll work with any accessory and almost any pair of shoes. Have fun with a pop of color!
The Katrina Layered Lace Skirt has the ultimate combination of flare and flounce. Like the above dresses and tops, this skirt makes it easy to play around with colorful accessories and shoes. Lightweight and airy, it’s a perfect skirt for summer.

Romantic Details From Winter Lennon


With lace detailing and soft neutral tones, Dallas-based clothing line Winter Lennon is the latest must-have brand in the fashion game. Their specialty is romantic and bohemian staple pieces that are versatile. The Crochet Maxi Dress is a great representation of the line: bohemian and neutral. The tunic-style maxi features crochet lace down the front and back of the dress with side slits, and the light and airy fabric is great to throw over a bathing suit.

For ladies with longer torsos, it’s difficult to find summer dresses since most are way too short for comfort. Even longer shirts designed to cover your bum in leggings don’t always do the trick, but that’s where Winter Lennon comes in to save the day. The brand sells lace trimmed dress and top extenders to wear underneath your clothes to add an extra layer. The Lace Dress Extender is a transitional piece that can be worn all year round. From summer dresses to winter dresses worn with tights, the piece adds a pretty touch of lace to any outfit.

The Long Sleeve Pointed Lace Top Extender is a long top that looks great with jeans or shorts. This piece is also transitional and can be worn with a pair of ripped up denim shorts in the summer or leggings/jeans in the fall. The top features side slits that relieve any constriction and add to the flowy look, and it comes in black, camel, and ivory.
Other than the lovely clothes, Winter Lennon also carries accessories such as hats, handbags, belts, socks, and jewelry. They even have a children’s line and sell their clothing wholesale to certain retailers. Be sure to get your hands on some Winter Lennon; the pieces will definitely come in handy, especially when you face a fashion emergency! To learn more about Winter Lennon, visit shopwinterlennon.com.
