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 …

A Styled Mind: Relaxed Autumn Vibes

New York City is a place where high fashion can turn into a buzzing street style trend in a minute. Our 2016 Blogger Look Book featured some of this fall’s most talked about trends: slip dresses, bomber jackets, a touch of velvet, metallic accents, sleek tops, and reconstructed jeans. It’s time to wrap up our feature with Ashley Weddington, an admirer of all things fashion, hence why she’s the face of A Styled Mind. Weddington’s focus on ASM is to showcase “different ways to put ensembles together while staying on trend all year round.” In our look book, Weddington’s outfit features a low cut, split-neck blouse with a tie-front. The blouse is black and geometrically patterned in orange and green hues. The burnt sienna and olive tones affirm the vibe of the season. She pairs the blouse with a pair of relaxed fit cropped denim cut-offs. The frayed ends at the bottom of the legs give the outfit a worn-in feel. On her feet, Weddington sports a pair of black strapped heels. Finally, she accessorizes with …

Stylophyle: A Little Edgy & A Little Sporty

Stylophile- n. A person who likes to dress up and seems to have a different outfit for every occasion. v. To dress up in fancy clothes whenever you go out because you don’t know who you’re going to meet, and you don’t want to get dressed down. Influenced by fashion, art, culture, and beauty around the world, Sabrina Poon describes herself as just that—a stylophile. Except, she stylized it into Stylophyle. Poon is a New York City-based blogger who loves traveling, food, fashion, and repeat! With beauty and brains, Poon’s full-time job isn’t a style consultant, but a neurology nurse. Surely she did not don scrubs for our fall look book; but instead, a pair of mesh drawstring pants and a light blue button down. Right now is the time when every cool girl (and guy) in NYC grabs their leather biker jacket and runs outside. The demure vibes in Poon’s look totally lets the biker jacket off the hook, but for added coolness—don’t hesitate grabbing it! She finishes up with pointy black leather heels, a black fringe bag, and sunglasses. Her ever-changing …

La Selma Style: Chic, Bold, & Sophisticated

“Chic, bold, and sophisticated,” this is how Selma Ali of La Selma Style describes her personal style. In YHM’s Fall 2016 Look Book, Ali sports a simple white V-neck tee. She compensates by directing all the attention to her dazzling metallic skirt, which goes well below her knees for cooler weather. On her feet, Ali rocks a pair of fluorescent yellow t-strapped, bow heels. She accessorizes with aviator shades, a large black clutch, and a silver triple-collar necklace which matches with her skirt perfectly. While autumn is all about deep, dark transitional colors–Ali puts a pleasant twist on the norm with her bold heels. Easily recreated, you can purchase a plain white V-neck tee just about anywhere, and your own long metallic skirt at stores like American Apparel and H&M. You can even swap the yellow heels with a different fluorescent color, like these. By Sunny Tsao | Photography by Nicholas Perrone
