Get the Look: On Trend Activewear Outfits

Whether you’re hitting the gym or produce aisle at the grocery store, activewear is a trend that’s here to stay. Comfort and performance are top factors in choosing each piece, but you want to look stylish and current, not just cozy.

We recommend keeping it simple, sleek and fun. You can’t go wrong with two of our favorite brands: Adidas by Stella McCartney and Nike. Here are two looks that we love and how to find it for less on Poshmark.

Black is a sure bet with activewear outfits, but infusing neon helps add personality. Not to mention, a little (or big!) motivational statement is enough to take your workout to the next level.

Fall 2015 Style: Boots That Channel the ’70s

For every shopaholic, another fall season means a new pair of boots. This year, specifically this season, it is all about the ‘70s. Get ready to jump feet first into autumn as we show you the best pieces to wear this season that bring back retro-cool with rock goddess vibes.

The first look is for all you bohemian babes: think fringe, maxi or knee length dresses and skirts, patchwork prints, and peasant tops. The great part about going bohemian is the flexibility it offers. Most any style of boots can go with your whole entire wardrobe, regardless of the season! We especially love this knee-length dress with a thigh high boot and suede jacket to top it all off.

One of the reasons why the ‘70s is a much-loved decade, is because of the momentous change in had in the fashion industry, all thanks to Yves Saint Laurent and Halston. Both designers were pioneers of incorporating menswear and historicism into womenswear. This second look captures to the colors Saint Laurent embedded in his designs, and the minimal look Halston had in his, with midi boots.

Midi booties, have to be our favorite style to wear this season. This style is great for any body type and are the perfect go-to pair for work, a night out, or for an off-duty look on the weekend. Simply recreate this look with ripped denim jeans, an earth-toned coat, bright scarf and midi booties with metal hardware.

One of the key elements in putting an outfit together is texture. Texture adds an extra umph and furthermore, suede has the ability to take us back to the ‘70s for a retro-sophisticated look. Suede boots can make the colors of your outfit seem even richer and the texture has enough impact that you can ditch accessories. Pair suede boots with skinny white denims, a printed blouse and a jacket.

A Decade In Fashion: Alexander Wang Re-Releases Best Sellers

At 31 years old, fashion designer Alexander Wang has done more than many designers have in a lifetime. A graduate of Parsons, Wang debuted his first collection at age 21, which consisted of knitwear based on unisex silhouettes. Today he has transformed his vision into a multi-million dollar business and is one of the most recognized brands in the fashion industry. From collaborating with H&M to being the creative director of French fashion house Balenciaga, Wang has created a retrospective capsule collection for his accomplishment.

In celebration of his 10 years in the fashion industry, the brand had fans vote for their favorite pieces. This capsule consists of his 10 best sellers, known as the “Wang 10.” From Alexander Wang’s spring 2009 collection of bright pieces and a Miami-inspired show to the sexy fall 2009 collection of moto jackets and sheer bra cup dresses, this anniversary collection proves that Wang is sure to further ascend into fashion history.

What makes Alexander Wang’s fans obsessed with his collections are the wearable and diverse his designs and silhouettes.

The 10 items of the capsule collection are all black, which makes us love it even more. What else do we love? Low-waisted leather pants, the mesh dress with graphic embellishments and the athletic-inspired leather shorts.

If you can’t take home this collection at full retail, you can still find amazing pieces from this honored designer on Poshmark. How to style the looks? Pair the leather bottoms with a sleeveless top or with a cable-knit jumper, the mesh dress with heels, and the draped dress with sneakers and leather jacket on top, and you might just be mistaken for one of Wang’s models.

Get the Look: ’90s Fashion Inspired by My So-Called Life

There is a special place in our hearts for the too-short run of the series My So-Called Life. How many times did we wish we had friends like Rayanne and Rickie? How badly did we want the perfect bob haircut like Angela?

Perhaps the love comes from the way it perfectly captured the teenage experience, a time when we were waiting for our life to start and learning to accept the parts of ourselves that were different; all the while navigating the daunting social structure of high school. The show refreshingly displayed teenhood in all its angsty, awkward glory. That honesty not only made it inspiring but also groundbreaking. As we move closer to Fall, it is the perfect time to pay homage to our favorite Liberty High students by breaking out the ‘90s-inspired looks.

My So-Called Style: Angela

Angela not only had the best hair, she also had an awesomely relaxed and unique style. Overalls are not only comfortable, they also can be edgy and fashion-forward! Take a hint from Claire Danes and pair them with an awesome attitude and a crop tee, or glam them up with a silk blouse.

Plaid and flannel don’t have to be just stereotypical apparel of Generation X, they can also add that extra dose of color and pattern to an otherwise simple outfit. Tie it around your waist to show off your trendy style or wear it under your favorite oversized sweater for some perfect cold-weather layering.

Jumpsuits for Every Body Type

Whether it’s a casual lunch or a night out on the town, jumpsuits are everywhere this season. Think you can’t rock this trend? Think again. Jumpsuits can be challenging, but it’s all about choosing the right style for you. To find your perfect jumpsuit, keep these three factors in mind: cut, fabric and print.

Curvy

If you’re more on the curvy side, it’s best to avoid large prints and styles that are too baggy or overly form-fitting. Be on the lookout for solid colors and neutral prints and smooth fabrics and don’t forget to add a pair of heels for a slimming and elongated effect. You should also consider low necklines and modest embellishment, if any.

When it comes to styling, add a belt to perfectly enhance your waist. For a more flashy look, explore adding colorful or embellished statement necklaces to balance your body proportions and bring on the drama.

Petite

For petite figures, choose skinny straps or v-neck styles with a shorter cut, to show off the length of your legs. You’ll want to avoid longer, loose cuts as this can make the body appear smaller in size. Petite frames are best in small patterns and solid colors as this helps make the frame seem taller than it actually is.

Slim

For those of you on the slimmer side, explore in loose flowing and printed jumpsuits to add definition to your body and accentuate your curves. Denim jumpsuits and rompers have been a season favorite for slimmer figures. If you decide to go down the denim route, keep in mind that it’s all about a perfect fit. Try to steer clear from denim jumpsuits that hug or sit on your curves as you want to find one that are a bit looser but slim fitting.

By keeping these general rules and your curves in mind, your hunt to finding the perfect jumpsuit will be more fun and easygoing than challenging as you will see your jumpsuit collection grow. Ready to get started? Check out our Jumpsuits and Rompers Showroom!
