The Louis Reign brings you navy, white, and a dash of vintage blue

Summer calls for bright colors, winter calls for dark colors, and fall calls for a mix. Sometimes finding the perfect fall color balance is a challenge, but Christine of Louis Reign has autumn style on lock as she posed for our 2017 Blogger Look Book, again. Our look book features Christine in a fun ensemble from head-to-toe. She pairs a turtleneck, no-sleeved top with long navy, pinstriped pants. She finishes the outfit with a jacket, a golden watch, a cross body pocketbook, and black leather ankle boots. Perfect for the changing weather of fall! This season each day’s weather forecast is a surprise, one day it is hot one day it is cold. This outfit is versatile. Just take off the jacket, and the outfit still works for a warmer fall day. Switch out the jacket for a blazer and head over to your next business meeting. Have a short amount of time to get prepared for a night out? Swap the ankle boots for stilettos, and you are ready to go! This look is like a chameleon; it is …

Chillen with Chi; Your Guide to Bright Colors in Fall

When you think of fall fashion, bright pink probably isn’t a color that crosses your mind. However, a chunky sweater most likely will. Bright colors are unexpected during the autumn season, but they are not stopping style blogger and beauty queen Chinyere Adogu of Chillen with Chi from wearing over-sized sweaters that are simply ideal for the cold weather. For our latest Look Book feature, Adogu pairs a candy pink, cable knit sweater with a glossy, leather skirt. The mix of fabrics creates a fashion-forward outfit—who cares what the season is! The raven colored mini skirt makes the cozy sweater pop even more. Adogu explains that she loves experimenting with color. “My style is effortlessly chic! I love colors! Color-blocking, mixing prints, a pop of color or the same color head-to-toe.” Her off the shoulder top plus the geometric mini skirt definitely pushes the boundaries of fall fashion yet makes total sense. Her look is easily a summer to fall transition piece. Complementing her outfit is her choices in accessories; a brightly colored matching pink …

The Louis Reign Takeover & Why Plaid is a Timeless Fashion Statement

As Cher Horowitz would say, “You see how picky I am about my shoes, and those only go on my feet.” If Clueless took place in 2017 in New York City, then this outfit would have been Cher’s iconic, yellow plaid skirt-suit ensemble. This look has transcended along the ages. Plaid never goes out of style, and neither does our Look Book! Christine Louis of the trendy fashion and art blog Louis Reign shared with us her style philosophy on the set of our autumn photo shoot collaboration. “My style is edgy with a twist. I love neutral colors and mixing vintage pieces with luxury pieces.” Her outfit screams just that. Contrasting red, dark blue, green, and black created a bold color palette; a color palette that is still dark enough to wear during the fall. While mixing a Prada cross-body bag with a plaid skirt allows for a mixing of luxury and the 90’s vintage-inspired pieces. We love her contrasting muted olive-green fedora hat. Christine mixes yet totally achieves a match-worthy ensemble with the …

Vivienne Hu: The Effortless Fall Style You’re Looking For

Vivienne Hu stuns again with a flirtatious and bold lineup for her Fall/Winter 2017 collection. Hu’s erstwhile run as an investment banker did not last long as her passion and skills brought her to the world of fashion—and we’re blushing about the designer’s upcoming release. Her FW17 collection quickly debunks any negative notions you have about dressing stylish and staying warm during the coolers months. While Hu’s cocktail dresses charmingly dashed across the runway of her New York Fashion Week show in February, the standout attraction was her assortment of cozy pea-coats and parkas. The outwear pieces were garnered with audacious fur pockets, necklines, and sleeves. She makes you want to quickly ditch your boring winter layers and opt for one of her high-end pieces. Olive green, mustard yellow, and cardinal red made a natural striped backdrop for numerous pieces, from swinging mini dresses to tailored jackets. Hu takes the guessing game out of getting ready for the fall and winter season. Now I’m not saying you should stick to one brand for all styling …

Limor Ben Yosef: The Bridal Couture Designer Every Bride-To-Be Needs to Know

Limor Ben Yosef, an Israeli bridal couture designer constructs stunning custom-made wedding dresses. Embellished with hand sewn gems and draped with a touch of power, she designs from the heart. She is self-taught and spent many years crafting her skills in beauty and fashion. Her 2017 collection, “Goddess,” is a true testament of “practice makes perfect.” The collection exemplifies how her adolescent years as a budding designer can produce not only a work of art, but a designer who is inspired by other women more than fashion trends. The “Goddess” collection began with the careful selection of high-quality laces and fabrics. The gowns are adorned with an array of hand-stitched pearls and crystals on chiffon and silk fabrics. Limor sketched each dress by pulling from late night imaginations to early morning motivations. “Goddess” deserves much applause for its pitch-perfect fairytale designs. Her dresses are made for strong and sexy women who have an affection for power and beautification; hence the name “Goddess.” “I took the name from [Greek] mythology. Many of them are women; strong …

Daughters of Artemis: Stylishly Claiming Our Crown

Ane Amour’s “Daughters of Artemis” collection for autumn/winter 2017 sent us on a hunt for power with its bold and rustic forest colors and prints. Designer Lyala Anne captured the true essence of women on the hunt in this season’s pieces. The A/W 2017 collection inspires us to feel as if we’ve slipped into the clothing of a goddess, while its bold cuts keep us modern yet conservative. Allowing women to feel inspired to conquer, Anne made sure to create pieces that would suit all body types. Her tonal prints allow outfits to vary from day to night and from business to evening wear. Some of the floral prints that canvas white fabrics can even transition into the warmer spring and summer months. Floral prints danced on ruffled fabrics in a fierce yet subtle way. The designer’s play with nature was exciting and the floaty fabric’s mimicked wispy hair in the wind. Conservative yet sexy, Anne’s garments hug and swing in all the right places. Any woman wearing a piece from the “Daughters of Artemis” …
