Athleisure styling

TWR Athleisure styling summer 2016

Let’s get sporty!  Wear a casual, yet trendy look out into every day life with athleisure styling.  I adore people who wear cool kicks with their outfits, but I just cannot justify myself rocking that look.  Instead, I like that athleisure styling doesn’t just mean sweatpants and tennis shoes.  Athleisure portrays a casual, sporty feeling through the use of textures, fabrics and details.  The perforated fabric and contrasting piping on this jacket really hone in on the sportswear feeling.  I love that this watch is still sophisticated with the mix of its metal face and nylon band.  Again, I’m not that cool-kicks-kind-of-girl, so I’d opt into an oxford with a sporty, colored sole.  Mix athleisure pieces with your current wardrobe for a hint of sporty style.

Lela Rose

TWR Lela Rose Pre Fall 2016 1

Get ready for a story of sleeves.  Whether they’re long sleeves or short sleeves, Lela Rose‘s Pre-Fall 2016 collection perfected the shift of seasons with an assortment of arm candy.  The sleeves were the highlights, and featured detail, of each look.  I really love a playful silhouette that provides an unexpected touch to an outfit.  With everything from two-tone sleeves to a modern take on the Juliet sleeve, I’m overly excited for fall fashion and how this will can play out in my own style.  Being from California, I would rather go sleeve-less, but for once the layering and exaggerated styles are beyond intriguing.

What sleeve best suits your style?

Accessorizing in rose gold

TWR Accessorizing in rose gold summer 2016

More rose gold, every day.  As fall quickly arrives, it’s time to start thinking of a shift in color palettes.  Silver is light, airy and perfect for the summer months.  Gold is a great accent metal to dress up an outfit.  I’m swooning over rose gold for a year-round, unexpected touch of color.  This pinkish hue compliments fall’s traditionally, more dark and jewel-tone palettes.  Here are a few great rose gold accessories that will liven up and polish off your fall wardrobe.

Perfect for a picnic

TWR Perfect for a picnic Summer 2016-7

Humidity aside... I’ve always loved the concept of an adorably curated picnic.  In reality, picnics never look as adorable in person as they do on Pinterest shocking, I know.  Everything stood in the way of my picnic—from the heat and humidity, to the wind blowing my blanket and my cheese melting in the sun.  Still, we made it happen.  Although, a picnic feels like a shorts-and-tank kind of day, I love the idea of dressing up my outfit for a picnic date-night.  Throw on a maxi dress that is both comfortable and flirty.  Add in some sandals, sunglasses and a few simple accessories, and you’re ready to go!

What’s your picnic style?

The Arrivals NYC

TWR The Arrivals NYC SUmmer 2016

Fall done right!  The Arrivals NYC is the perfect investment brand for menswear pieces this fall.  I’m loving the soft, subdued color palette they have for this season, using a range of greens and yellow hues.  Although this jacket might be a little premature to wear now, a classic raincoat is essential for every man’s closet.  This one is light enough that it could be worn now, during the summer rain storms, here in DC.  Outside of the stellar outerwear pieces from The Arrivals, I really enjoy their simplistic, yet sophisticated take on men’s accessories.  Start prepping now for the colder weather ahead with investment outwear and accessories that will last you all winter long.

Falling for trends

TWR Falling for trends 2016

I’ll take one of each.  If yesterday’s Pre-Fall collection wasn’t inspiration enough, I’m bringing you pieces that are dying to make it into your fall wardrobe.  I know it’s still hot outside (it’s been 100+ for a week here in DC), but you have to start thinking ahead and preparing your wardrobe for seasonal transitions.  DVF’s collection brought out a few, key fall trends I’d like to feature: accordion pleat a-line skirts, bold pops of orange and ankle booties.  These pieces will start building upon a cold-weather look but still be versatile for end of summer outfits.  These trends are getting me more, and more excited for the fall season.

What fall trends are you excited for?

Skirt: Zara 
Coat: Milly
