Brand Spotlight

It’s no secret that Chanel has heavily influenced the fashion industry over the past century, so what a cool honor it was for our Nous girl, Bridget Setterlee, to be able to take part in a spread wearing their recent beauty line! From having a wide variety of trendy lips tones, to introducing us to their pigmented shimmery eye-pallet (it absolutely dazzles in the sunlight), we adore Chanel’s artistic vision for summer twenty-seventeen!

Looking for the perfect daytime lip wear? This ultra-hydrating Rogue Coco lipstick carries tons of neutral-to-pink tones that will compliment any elegant vixen! Also- finding yourself needing a little more color on your complexion this summer, but are worried about the hazards of tanning? This Les Beiges bronzer offers a healthy glow sheer to keep the tan on your skin, without the hassle!

Sick of standing in front of your closet? So were we — until we saw the newest pieces from Glassons on Jordan Monaghan. Their Velvet Underground lookbook is a dreamy collection of enticing throwbacks à la Penny Lane. Casual blouses and high-waisted skirts are reminiscent of a stroll down the boardwalk at sunset with your favorite tunes in tow.

We adore their delicate dresses and tops: cutouts in all the right places for a seamless day-to-night look. Flirty tie neck tops and swoon-worthy velvet burnout dresses are balanced by luxurious cardigans that are work and play appropriate. But don’t take our word for it — keep scrolling to see how Jordan wears some of our new favorite looks.

Waking up is hard enough, so why not slip into something just as comfortable as your PJs? Our morning wardrobe process is usually clouded with the words “beauty is pain,” but whoever spoke those fateful words has yet to see American Eagle Outfitters newest line. Luckily, we got to view it all firsthand – Bridget modeled this breezy collection, the perfect transition from your bed into being a real human being. Exhibit A: the Soft & Sexy Long Sleeve T-Shirt. The name says it all; it’s comfy enough to lounge in, but cute enough to not leave you mortified while bumping into your crush on your local coffee run. Win win.

Aside from easing you into your day with style, basics are also the best pieces to get you from winter to spring, aka festival season. We suggest packing the Lace Back T-Shirt and Open Shoulder T-Shirt in your ‘Chella tote, both of which play up the feminine side of a plain tee with lace detailing and a peak of skin. Toss your hair up in a messy bun or finger-comb for an effortless loose waves, and voila! Whether you’re sipping coffee or screaming the lyrics of your favorite headliner, AEO’s Spring collection will make you want to carpe diem like never before.

Love is in the air, and 50 Shades of Grey is on the screen. For those of you out there hoping to turn up the heat a notch this Valentine’s Day -or date nights in general- look no further than Forever 21’s new collection of intimates as modeled by the flawless Taylor Hannum. (No really, she’s flawless).

But not to worry: if you’re feeling less than picture perfect, the great thing about this line is its versatility, aka its ability to help you achieve an effortless, “I Woke Up Like This,” look no matter what your mood – or current relationship status.

For days when you just can’t peel yourself off the couch any away from yet another Netlix binge-watching session, the Latte Print Bodyshorts will instantly become your new best friend. (Insider tip: you might want to order two pairs. #justsaying). If your bf is your co-pilot helping you navigate the Friends marathon, though, we love the Floral Lace Bralette for a subtly sexy allure.

As daylight fades away into a darker ambiance of the evening hours, those of you who are risk-takers might want something a little more spicier. You’ll knock ‘em dead in the Mesh Lace Garter Corset Set or the Mesh Cutout Bodysuit. Win win.

The holidays are filled with sugar, spice, and everything nice. But sometimes, like when it’s time to prep for those final exams, we’re not always feeling so warm and fuzzy. For the days that you just need to get up and go, rely on Rebel8: our new favorite one-stop destination for a simple, easy going style that is perfect for the hectic holiday season.

As an added cool factor, Rebel8 is one of the few brands left to rebel -pun intended- against the digital age; their threads feature original works of art, meaning many of their graphics are hand-illustrated by artists like the legendary Mike Grant. These fun graphic tees are only a taste of the casual-cool styles to choose from: between comfy denims and amazing sweatshirts, your closet will seriously be thanking you later (and so will your boyfriend, whose hoodie collection will “mysteriously” reappear).

In the brand’s new winter collection, our girl Wasé Chief perfects an “I Woke Up Like This” look that will easily transition from class to Secret Santa shopping for your BFFLs, or yourself, we’re not judging! Throw on a rad crew neck, some low-rise denims and pair with your favorite pair of Converse to make for the ultimate casual-cool look (and leave all the frill and fluff for your Christmas tree decorating). Shot by one of our favorite photographer/stylist duos – Adam Rindy and Honor Hamilton, and beauty by the lovely Jessie Bishop, the Rebel8 lookbook sums up our favorite looks for keeping it cool during the holidaze, and all year ‘round.

Winter doesn’t officially start until December 21st. Based on the incredible fall fashion out there, we’re not giving up autumn just yet. Currently, we’re taking notes from LA-based designer Living Doll who seriously knows their stuff when it comes to sweater weather. Light layers, cozy knits and fun flannels are a few of our favorite staples that make for the perfect transition from fall to winter.

Our girls Naty and Monica made us fall in love with this fabulous and affordable brand in their new look book shoot. Relax in a “Do What Makes You Happy” graphic tee on a lazy Sunday, or rock these insanely cool “Not Your Mom’s Bells” bohemian flares for a Friday night. The fun product names are just one thing we’re obsessed with about this brand; 80% of their clothing are made with love and care right here in the US of A!

So before you trade in our ponchos for parkas, see what else we’re loving from the collection.

For a girl on the go, fitting in a workout routine can seem like the most daunting task (let’s be honest, we’d rather be spending that time devoted to Netflix). What can make the trip to the gym more fun, however, is looking good doing it. Which bring us to Vimmia: our latest workout gear obsession. And with a motto like “Engage Your Life,” what’s not to love? This luxe activewear line features stylish apparel for all of your yoga, studio and cardio needs.

We love that the brand focuses on creating balance and reconnecting with yourself–something that is easily lost in the craziness that is the holiday season. Needless to say, Vimmia should definitely be on your wish list this season. You can thank us later (after catching up on Scandal reruns, of course).
