Teddy coats were huge last year and they don’t seem to be stopping anytime soon. They’re the perfect piece to add to your closet to keep you warm through the cold winter weather, while still looking fashion-forward. 

Styles we love: Double Breasted Teddy Coat | Mint Teddy Bear Faux Shearling Cropped Jacket | Colorblock Teddy Jacket 

Edgy, cool and bringing all the nostalgia, combat boots are having a major moment.  The top brands from Poshmark are Dr. Martens, Steve Madden, and Timberland.  

Styles we love: Metallic Combat Lace-Up Boot | Steve Madden Moto | Rose Velvet Combat Boots

 

Stylish (and we wish we could say practical), the mini bag made a huge appearance at the tail-end of 2019. (We’re looking to you, Lizzo) We are all about this small but mighty trend as long as they fit our phones. 

Styles we love: Louis Vuitton Mini Speedy | Mini Champion Backpack | Burberry Mini Square Coated Canvas Tote Bag

Keep these items in mind the next time you think about what to source for your closet.

The Top 10 Fashion Collabs of the Decade

The past decade gave rise to the most accessible phenomenon in fashion: the collaboration. We looked back at the partnerships between designers, celebrities, retailers, and emerging talent, that led to the decade’s peak hype.

2010 – Takashi Murakami x Casio G-SHOCK Frogman Watch 

Instagram: @kmho888

 

Japanese contemporary artist, Takashi Murakami, first made his way onto the art scene in the 90’s. He founded the “superflat” movement, a postmodern art practice with anime and manga influences. Murakami’s art is approachable and fun, making him the perfect partner for brands and fashion houses. In 2010, he partnered with Casio, the fan-favorite watch brand, to create a special G-SHOCK Frogman design that married his signature flower print with the functional timepiece. This bright collaboration changed the way we look at watches—from stiff, fragile jewelry—to fun expressions of style.

2011 – Versace x H&M

Fast-fashion retailer, H&M, debuted their first designer collaboration in 2004. In 2011, they debuted Versace x H&M, a capsule collection that reflected Versace’s signature bold, Greek motif. The release was so popular, it crashed H&M’s website within minutes of going live and was immediately listed on the secondary market. The collaboration was so successful, H&M brought it back for a second season the following year.

2012 – Nike Air Yeezy 2

The Nike Air Yeezy 2 helped Kanye West redefine sneaker culture, with a design noticeably different than its Nike Air Yeezy predecessor. The Red October colorway propelled the shoe into the icon it is today, a favorite among celebrities like NBA-proclaimed Sneaker King, P.J. Tucker. Although the West and Nike union didn’t last, the Nike Air Yeezy 2 paved the way for West’s successful partnership with adidas that started in 2014 and is still running.

2013 – Target x Philip Lim

Just this year, Target celebrated 20 years of designer partnerships with an anniversary collection featuring reissued pieces from their most popular collaborations. From Missioni and Rodarte to Hunter and Phillip Lim, these partnerships made designer goods accessible to the masses. Phillip Lim’s collection featured clothing and accessories for men and women across a wide range of prices. Popular items included a chic $29.99 graphic sweater and a killer $299.99 leather jacket. The collection further popularized Lim’s aesthetic by making understated, everyday basics beautiful.

2014 – Pharrell Williams x Adidas

In 2014, Adidas announced a long-term partnership with the popular music producer and style icon, Pharrell Williams. The Originals = Pharrell Williams collaboration launched with two classic pieces from the Originals collection: a leather version of the Superstar track jacket with contrasting 3-Stripes and the iconic Stan Smith, that were both available in three bold colorways. Williams still collaborates with the brand with his next piece dropping in early 2020, the highly anticipated Adidas 4D sneaker.

2015 – Comme des Garçons PLAY x Converse Chuck 70

COMME des GARÇONS PLAY and Converse released their first collab shoe, the Chuck Taylor All Star ’70, in 2015. This collaboration brought the luxury fashion house into the home of admirers with its accessible price-point. The quirky heart-and-eyes logo, designed by New York graphic artist Filip Pagowski and Comme des Garçons’ founder Rei Kawakubo, combined with the classic Chuck Taylor All Star silhouette is among the most popular collabs of the decade.

2016 – Apple Watch 2 x Hermès

The marriage of luxury and function made the Apple x Hermès collaboration one to watch (bad pun, couldn’t help it). Hermès released their signature leather wrap-band in a series of bold new colors for their partnership with the tech powerhouse. The Apple Watch Hermès band quickly became the ultimate example of a modern, elegant accessory

2017 – Aleali May x Air Jordan

Aleali May made history when she collaborated Jordan in 2017 as the first women to design and drop a unisex sneaker. Her style and social influence caught the eye of Jordan designer, Frank Cooke, who solicited her help to bring his vision to life. Aleali May designed the iconic Air Jordan 1 sneaker to feature expensive materials and different textures, including corduroy, which was inspired by her LA roots and slippers her dad used to wear.

2017 Honorable mention – Supreme x Louis Vuitton

Instagram: @supremenewyork

 

Supreme, the brand that created an entire hype-cycle and business model based on collaborations, released arguably their best collab yet with heritage fashion house, Louis Vuitton. The Louis Vuitton’s menswear fashion show in Paris even had some commentators claiming that this collaboration is the partnership that enabled streetwear to officially become “high fashion.” The collection consisted of denim trucker jackets, leather trunks, box logo hoodies, and more.

2018 – Serena Williams x Off-White x Nike 2018 at the French Open

What happens when you unite tennis champion and Poshmark board member, Serena Williams, with Virgil Abloh’s Off-White and sports giant Nike? One of the most iconic sport and fashion moments of the decade. The “Queen” collection featured the NikeCourt Flare 2 PE, which Williams wore for the US Open, along with the lifestyle shoes Nike Blazer and Air Max 97 for the public. This epic collaboration pushed the boundaries of athleisure innovation into a new era where functional meets fashion.

2019 – Virgil Abloh x Ikea

Instagram: @virgilabloh

After several rumors of a collaboration, the popular Scandinavian furniture brand Ikea released its collection with Virgil Abloh, MARKERAD IKEA, in November 2019. This collab mixed  everyday houseware items with Abloh’s unique aesthetic and priced them at Ikea’s affordable price point. Some of our favorite pieces include the “SCULPTURE” Frakta Bags and the “TEMPORARY” Wall Clock.

 

Star Wars Style: This is the Way

The Star Wars franchise is one of the most beloved movie series in popular culture, spanning over four decades. First released in 1977, the films have action, romance, and quite frankly some of the best-dressed leading men we’ve ever seen. With the release of the final episode, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker on the horizon, we revisited episodes I – VIII and rounded up our favorite looks.

Not only is Luke Skywalker the most famous Star Wars characters of all time, he’s also one of the most stylish. While he may be the savior of the galaxy, we also see Skywalker as an undiscovered hypebeast—who could easily have been the face of the Yeezy Desert Boot campaign. With his monochromatic uniform and desert-esque aesthetic, Skywalker’s signature look is on trend. We picture Skywalker in something versatile for Jedi training, like Fear of God cargo pants. To keep things simple, Skywalker could finish his look with a piece from Stone Island. 

Recreate Luke Skywalker’s look to watch the movie or to wait in line for the next Supreme drop by shopping these showrooms:

Han Solo is known as a smuggler turned hero, but we considered him an entrepreneur who hustled his way out of Corellia—and a stylish one at that. His classic look pairs blue bottoms with a white top and signature vest, the modern day midtown uniform. Today, he’d likely pair  blue chinos with a Banana Republic henley before completing his look with a Patagonia vest. 

Recreate Han Solo’s look to watch the movie or for a meeting with investors by shopping these showrooms:

While Kylo Ren (formerly Ben Solo) may have been Skywalker’s former apprentice, they don’t actually have much in common aside from their mastery of the force. Ren is focused on his ultimate goal of ruling the galaxy, not on what he’s wearing—which is why he’s got such an effortless, cool vibe. We see Ren as a student of Rick Owens, the modern day master of being cool while not caring. He’d likely wear a parka or trench coat, paired with combat boots from the same designer. We picture Ren wearing his statement pieces with All Saints pants to balance out the look, so he can get back to his main goal: being the Supreme Leader of the Dark Side. 

Recreate Kylo Ren’s look to watch the movie or to get drinks at an undiscovered hotspot by shopping these showrooms:

Poe Dameron, the daring rebel pilot, has a get-down-to-business style. Taking his skills to the sky, Dameron is too busy fighting against the First Order to be bothered to change out of his jumpsuit. That’s why we picture him in Dickies, fitting right in with the Resistance or the Fairfax District of Los Angeles. Since Dickies, the iconic workwear brand, now collaborates with streetwear powerhouses, we’re sure that Dameron could wear the brand from head to toe.

Recreate Poe Dameron’s look to watch the movie or to hit up the skate park by shopping these showrooms:

Finn is the former stormtrooper who rebelled against the First Order. Not only did he fight for his own freedom, he also helped free Resistance prisoner, Poe Dameron. We see Finn as a classic hero with an edge. Today, he could be the face of a Levi’s campaign as his look personifies their classic brand heritage. Let’s be honest, he’d likely pair his signature denim jeans with a statement leather jacket, just like the one he received from Poe.

Recreate Finn’s look to watch the movie or start out on an adventure by shopping these showrooms:

Style This: Bar Carts

You saw us style coffee tables and now Team Posh’s decor skills are being put to the ultimate test as they put a personal and creative spin on bar cart styling! Take your bar carts to the next level with the styles below.

Emily (@gremilyy)

How would you describe your bar cart style? 
Expressive/Fun. I love to incorporate pieces that scream “me”! Your bar cart is a great night waiting to happen, and the accessories should help to add to the fun. I’m also a huge sucker for all things copper/rose gold. 

Tell us about your favorite item on the bar cart.
My disco ball sipper is my favorite statement piece. Functional for no spills, but also shiny for the overall aesthetic. Fun fact: I drank out of it at my wedding!

Elenita (@elhopkins)

How would you describe your bar cart style? 
Elegant, inspired by mid-century style.

What’s a trick/tip for styling? 
Don’t be afraid to mix modern and vintage elements.

Tell us about the items on your bar cart.
The stemware is from my parents’ wedding almost 45 years ago (people just don’t give gifts like that anymore)! The travel books are ones I picked up at the Louis Vuitton exhibit in Los Angeles; I hope to own the whole collection one day.

Amanda (@theamandaweiss)

What’s your tip for styling?
Just like an amazing cocktail, your bar cart needs the perfect balance—one part fashion and one part function. Start with your staple bottles (mine are wine, champagne, vodka and a specialty liquor like Aperol) and then play with glassware, unique shakers like my pineapple one here, straws, and mixology books. Then add pieces with pizzazz that represent your style like art prints, metallic decor pieces, and coasters. I always like to update these seasonally to change it up. 

If you were a cocktail what would you be and why?
A spicy margarita with a Tajín rim because it’s packed with flavor— a little spicy, a little sweet, super sassy and you know you’re going to have a good time when you drink it!

Sera (@seramaria)

How would you describe your bar cart style?
Accessible yet elevated. I think of a bar cart like an accessory, it’s not a total necessity but it adds personality to any space!

What are your go-to items for styling a bar cart?
A few variations of glassware and copper mugs, Pellegrino bottles (in addition to the boozy bottles) and decorative straws. I even like to incorporate elements of seasonal decor throughout the year when appropriate so it feels festive.
