the 8 fall must-haves to freshen up the minimalist’s wardrobe

Fall is steadily underway, and if you haven’t shopped for your key pieces for the season yet, get ready for these to be your new everyday essentials that you’ll be able to continue wearing through the cold winter months and into early spring.  If you’re trying to maintain a more minimalist capsule wardrobe (like myself), bear in mind you don’t need to adopt every trend, but rather, should select the pieces you know you’ll be able to integrate into multiple looks throughout the season and beyond. These pieces are all fresh and modern, yet versatile and timeless classics, so with a little creativity you should be able to remix them with your current wardrobe into countless outfits you’ll be able to wear for months to come.  The chunky loafer Thanks to the return of 90’s preppy fashion trends, the loafer is back in a big way. Wear them with all of your preppy looks from suiting to skirts and denim. What to look for: sleek minimalist uppers or uppers with subtle details like cozy shearling …

I’m ditching my old sweats for Los Angeles Apparel

November has arrived, and with it that chill that seeps into your bones and steals away every semblance of summer’s past comforts. Thankfully, I’ve found my new live-in uniform thanks to Los Angeles Apparel. I’ve spent more than I care to admit on the hunt for the perfect sweatpants – all in vain. The material is always wrong, scratchy or too thin. Or the elastic so tight my feet loose feeling within moments. The fit’s not right, they collect lint like cheap velvet. I’ve even made the investment on some luxury brand sweatshirts on my quest – to find that my oversize sweatshirt was actually so heavy (and not soft) that my shoulders were ablaze by the end of the day. I’ve also tried Amazon Basics, some pop-culture retail boutiques, you name it. When Los Angeles Apparel reached out and offered me some pieces from their collection, my past experience made me a sceptic – to say the least. However with no obligations asked, I decided to give them a try. I can’t tell you how …

this fall’s minimalist pop color: green

There may never have been such a strong color trend as this 2021 trending hue. The new fashion statement color – a bold hue of vivid green.  Perhaps due to society’s shift in getting back to nature, this color of life is dominating catwalks and streetstyle stars alike. (OK I made up the getting back to nature part… but hey, it makes sense). And, after doing some further digging into the trend, in fact the FW21-22 NYFW Color Forecast does call the color a tribute to “the fun side of nature.” Spotted on stars like Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid (frequently spotted sporting this color trend), you probably can’t open your social without spotting some hue of primary to emerald green. Green is truly the color of life. And while fall slowly steals that away from us, we’re still reminded of summer memories with this grassy hue that somehow evokes a feel-good energy. Who wouldn’t want to capture that. And it’s not just your fashion influencers adopting the trend. Major luxury players like Bottega Veneta and …

today’s outfit inspo: the sweater vest

No filters, no effects, today’s actual outfit. After putting some thought into what I want to see @dayinmydreams represent this fall as a minimalist and luxury fashion blog, I want to share more real life moments and fashion that isn’t just styled for a feed, but styled for life. Today is one of my last work from home days, before I return to the office full time as marketing director of CSC. while most of this year has been a blur, I’ll tell you my 8-5 work from home style has been essentially loungewear with a blazer thrown over top. That’s about to change as we return to the office, and I have to admit, I’m a bit excited for the shift in gears. Lots coming for fall. Just published this fall’s trend report on key styles we’re seeing from around the globe. Get ready for a continuation of preppy sophisticates, as well as an emergence of nature-inspired trends – largely rooted in sustainability. You can check out the full fall trend report here. With October right …

fw21 fashion trend report

Not really sure where summer went, but after a brief hiatus for our summer wedding, fall has nearly arrived – and it’s time for a fall trend fashion report. Working in the fashion industry now for 10 years, it’s always a seasonal highlight to review just what’s new and what’s being reinvented. 2021 proved to be another chaotic year socially and politically, which always leads to an interesting mix of fashion trends emerging across the scene globally. A medium where people seek to express themselves through a mix of patterns, silhouettes and statement pieces, fashion is the personal expression of our society’s “climate”. As such, it’s no surprise to see a more natural mix of fall trends emerging as people seek to identify with a more simple time Sustainability plays a dominant role across all fall fashion trends, as brands and consumers alike begin to think more about the repercussions fo their actions and purchases. Nature has inspired many of our fall trends, from a mix of unprecedented natural materials like grasses, plastics and even …
