How to Style Your Closet with @StudioCovet

032615_feature_studiocovet 4

On. Point. That is how we describe the aesthetic genius that is @studiocovet‘s closet. There’s a little bit of Jenna Lyons inspiration, edgy details and sexy sophistication, and it all comes together to be the perfect selection for the modern, fabulous woman at work or at play.

We had to know the story behind Josie’s closet and what inspires her style. Read more to learn how she infusers her closet with style – and how you can, too!

What led you to Poshmark and what has your experience been so far? I actually was an eBay powerseller back in the day. It’s in part how I supported myself in college. My friends say if I have a super power it’s definitely being able to find the most amazing deals, and I love passing them on. One girl can only have so many Gucci booties anyway. Almost as fun as the shopping is the photo shoot – I love styling and taking outfit pictures… and if I can make money too, well then even better! I love Poshmark as a place to share my finds as well as style inspiration, and I’m overwhelmed how positive the community is! I believe in helping other women and other girl bosses find a way to profit from their passions. Poshmark is the perfect place for that.

We are obsessed with how you’ve styled your closet. What was your inspiration? We’re young creative professionals and our closet is a reflection of that – pieces that you can wear to work or an after work cocktail that are professional and polished, but never boring. Our studio is full of graphic designers, art directors and photographers who perfectly marry their creativity with their ability to lead businesses. As a result our closet ends up being filled with bold classics that have an artistic edge.

Has having such a strong aesthetic point of view helped you make sales? I think that fashion (and beauty) are incredibly powerful tools to use in crafting your identity. I’ve always believed in developing an aesthetic point of view for myself, and sticking to it – it changes season to season. In fact I used to do a concept board for my personal closet every season as a way to decide what to invest in. Knowing who you are and who you aren’t unlocks the power in fashion. I think in terms of sales people start to associate us with a style both in our photography, and the items we have.  As a result we definitely have repeat customers come back to us for more of what they know we do well.

What are some styling tricks to help a Posher take her closet to the next level? LIGHTING! I’d recommend Poshers experiment with lighting – it can be part of your closet identity. Play with natural lighting, but also try some low budget lamps at different angles. Other than that,  have fun with it! We try to do “photoshoot Fridays.” We take time to play with hair and makeup and have some friends or colleagues over to take posh pics. Everyone loves a photoshoot so you won’t find it hard to find volunteers. Styling outfits and taking pictures can be incredibly fun – go for it!

Any favorite trends or pieces that you’re loving for spring? If you know us, you know that we love a shirt dress with a statement shoe, but for spring our closet is full of d’orsay shoes, leather minis, pencil skirts, menswear inspired oversized classic shirts, and a lot of stunning head to toe black and white. You’ll see all of the above in our closet soon.

5 Ways to Get Festival Fashion Ready

Festival season is upon us and we couldn’t be more excited to rock one of our favorite trends: boho! There’s nothing we love more than fun in the sun with fringe, floral print and flower crowns. Be sure to make this trendy style all your own and mix it up by adding your own personal style spin.

Not sure where to start? Here are five ways to get festival ready without breaking the bank or sacrificing your own style.

1. Boots & Booties

Black Platform Booties // Lace-Up Booties // Brown Frye Boots

With all the walking around and standing in the crowds, closed toed shoes are a good idea for festivals. Comfort is key, so look for thicker heels and ankle height.

2. Layers on Layers

Floral Maxi Kimono // Fringe Lace Cardigan // White Distressed Denim Vest

When it’s hot and you’re sandwiched in crowds, the last thing you want to do is think about adding layers. But let’s not give up on it just yet! Light layers can add dimension to any outfit, so don’t be afraid to throw on something flowy and breathable. Plus, it’ll be extra protection against the sun’s rays.

3. Backpacks & Bucket Bags

Taupe Fringe Backpack // Bucket Bag // Woven Crossbody Bag

We all have necessities that need to accompany us during our day-long festivities when listening to our favorite bands. Practicality isn’t always first on our minds when it comes to fashion, but is key for these outdoor events. Carry everything in style with a roomy backpack or a stylish crossbody bag.

4. High Waists & Crop Tops

If we’re in a time crunch, this duo is an easy go-to that’s comfortable. There are endless combinations depending on what styles you like, so your’e sure to look chic with this pairing.

5. All the Accessories

When it comes to festivals, there is no such thing as overdoing it on the accessories. Anything is forgivable, so go for it stack on those bracelets and statement necklaces. If you’d rather tone it down a little, check out flash tattoos.

Dream Closets: How To Infuse Style Into Your Space

We’re all about wearing and styling clothes, but don’t forget to infuse your style into your closet! Get inspired by these three fun ways to create the closet of your dreams.

Sea of Shoes

Dedicate your whole closet entirely to your babies, a.k.a. shoes. Even if it’s simply one section of your closet, coordinating by color or type of shoe into different sections not only keeps your space organized, but beautiful at the same time.

Crisp and Classic

Pull together a closet that has a minimal yet effortless look with a play on the classic colors black and white. Individualized black doors can also bring life to a wardrobe by having easy access to see your clothing from the outside.

The Glamorous

Incorporate beautiful statement pieces within the space by adding a touch of glam with a faux fur rug or crystal chandelier. Quilted seats and gold vase accents can also create tasteful grandeur that’s a perfect fit for a closet.
