Ella Moss Tops

Some of our favorite tops hail from designer Ella Moss.  The wonderful Ella Moss line is well known for their great use of luxurious fabrics to help give their pieces a flowy, feminine look.  Ella Moss tops are always contemporary, yet elegant styles and the fabrics make you wish you could wear them all the time.  The styles of Ella Moss tops generally fall on the dressier side of your wardrobe, but there are several Ella Moss tops that do have a more casual look.   Here are a few of our favorite Ella Moss tops.

Consider the Victoria Front Tie Neck Top by Ella Moss.  This top features a ruffle around the neckline and long ties for show or if you were to actually tie them around the neck would give it a more Victorian look.  This top features a v neckline with buttons down the center of the bodice.  The base of the top has a loose fluid look to it.  The sleeves also feature a light ruffle at the hem.  Made with contrasting voile fabric around the cuffs and bustline and modal jersey around the body of the top, this top feels as luxurious as it looks.  This beautiful top is available in Lemonade (Yellow) or Chive (Green).

The Jocelyn Puff Sleeve Top by Ella Moss is also a great versatile piece for your wardrobe.  This top features a lightweight cotton fabric with an adorable pattern including white flowers on the solid cherry red or lemonade yellow fabrics.  With a ruffle around the base of the sleeves, the neckline and the waist, this top always looks feminine.  The waist line and the cuff of the puff sleeve are gathered as well.  This lightweight top is the perfect addition to your summer or spring wardrobe.

Finally, we love the classic, but always perfect Ellassentials Short Sleeve V Neck Top with Smocking.  This top features the classic modal jersey fabric which we have learned to love about the Ella Moss line.  The fabric feels so soft and luxurious.  This elegant v neck also features smocking in the center at the base of the v neck for contrast which really does give this top an added element of femininity.  The base of the top features a flared empire waist like fit which of course only adds to the feminine touches.  This top is available in Admiral (Navy) and Haze (Grey).  This top really is classic and elegant at the same time.

As you can see there is never a shortage of great, distinctive top options with Ella Moss.  Complete with fabulous fabrics, these tops feel as luxurious as they look.  If you already love Ella Moss tops, you will know exactly what we are talking about and if you haven’t ever tried an Ella Moss top, you will want to try incorporating at least one Ella Moss top into your wardrobe.  We are confident that you will find that Ella Moss tops are an essential component of every gal’s wardrobe.

Shop Ella Moss

If you’re shopping for great pieces from Ella Moss there are so many great options to consider.  As a little bit of background the Ella Moss line was started by designer Pamella Protzel Scott who originally studied graphic design when she realized that fashion was her true passion.  After attending the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising she was hired to work for Moise Emquies the founder of Mo Industries.  The pair partnered together to create Ella Moss taken from Pamella’s nickname (Ella) and Moise’s nickname (Moss).  In their own words, they describe the Ella Moss line as follows: “Hip, quirky, fashionable”. Protzel explained that her main inspiration for design was art, fashion, people, travelling, and Parisian flea markets.  She describes the collection as “flowy femininity with the comfort level of a t-shirt.”  You’ll find that Ella Moss fashions truly live up to that description and it isn’t hard to find so many great pieces when you are shopping the Ella Moss line.

As an example of a few of our favorite pieces as examples of the great fabrics and design that is so signature of Ella Moss consider the Blaire Widesleeve Crew Dress.  A beautiful dress with an angled contrasting hem with color options including Navy and White or Yellow and Grey.  We love the clean contrast around the high waist and the pleats around the neckline and the front keyhole giving this dress a variety of added detail and feminine touches.  This dress is made of 100% rayon which makes it dry clean only, but it feels so soft and luxurious that it is completely worth it.  This collection also features a great Blaire Puffsleeve Scoop Neck top features that same navy with contrasting white trim and includes ¾ length sleeves and a cutout detail around the shoulders.

Another great Ella Moss piece that brings a bit of luxury to something so basic is the Hampton Hoodie.  With contrasting voile shirting fabric around the neckline and trim around the hoodie with brown wooden beads at the end of the drawstring hoodie and even brown wood buttons to give this top added feminine touches.  Complete with gathering at the sides of the hemline and with faux rolled up ¾ length sleeves you will love the details on this top. We also love the Bay Blue color and even the white color that really looks classic, but still has that Ella Moss signature touch with amazing fabrics that really do feel like a t-shirt.  This top is made of a modal jersey and micro modal fabric which makes it dry clean only, but unbelievably soft.

You really can’t go wrong with Ella Moss clothing and when you are shopping for Ella Moss clothes you will find consistently great fabrics and designs that incorporate a variety of feminine touches and details that give each piece an added distinctive style.  Each Ella Moss piece has a statement piece quality to them that really does make having at least a couple of fabulous Ella Moss pieces in your wardrobe a great way to spice up your closet.

Dresses are always so hard to find and yet so popular.  When shopping for dresses we always find that it is a perpetual quest to find something unique or that perfect combination of feminine and modern or vintage.  Some of our favorite dresses are made by designer Ella Moss.  Known for their use of great fabrics and modern, vintage style designs, Ella Moss is a great designer of dresses.  With a range of dresses that work for a variety of occasions, Ella Moss dresses truly do work for all occasions.

For a dressy occasion, we adore the Ella Moss Abigail Ruffle Front V Neck Dress.  Perfect for a cocktail party or a night out, this black dress is absolutely stunning.  We love the classic Ella Moss ruffle v neck which is really part of so many Ella Moss dresses.  The dress also features a tie belt at the waist to give the dress a fitted look.  Made with a luxurious silk fabric this dress is the perfect combination of elegant and edgy.

Another great dress by Ella Moss is the Blaire Widesleeve Crew dress.  This dress is truly one of our favorites.  We love the contrasting colors and details on this dress.  With an empire waist and a keyhole button in front, this dress exudes feminine touches.  The dress also features shoulder pleats and a flared skirt that is longer in the center and tapers up on the sides with a contrasting stripe at the hem.  Available in Navy and White or Yellow and Grey this dress is always an excellent statement piece and a perfect combination of vintage style with a modern edge.

We also love the maxi dresses by Ella Moss.  The Odessa V Neck Maxi Dress feels so luxurious and regal when you wear it.  The Waterfall blue color is fabulous and the empire waist with the short sleeves gives the dress an elegant feminine touch.  Another maxi dress by Ella Moss is the Hollie Racerback Maxi Dress in black.  The racerback lace detail around the shoulders gives the dress a distinctive, feminine look.   These maxi dresses are perfect for dressy occasion, that perfect warm day or your amazing Carribean vacation.

True to the purpose of the Ella Moss brand to provide “flowy femininity with the comfort level of a t-shirt,” all of these dresses exude femininity and yet are so comfortable.

Sweet {and a bit sassy} Summer Dresses

So, its official, its the middle of June and it is summer. I for one, love the cool, stylish, and comfortable look of dresses and skirts. For me, they can be way more comfortable, and so easy to through on the go. Not to mention that they can go from beach, to dinner, to errands so effortlessly with a change of shoes and accessories. Ella Moss makes gorgeous dresses, and I especially love the detail on the Hollie Racerback Maxi Dress.

 Ok, so forgive me for another black dress, but I am just loving the basic black with detail dresses. Also, this dress does come in brown and in case you haven’t heard, brown is super in this summer. Just check out your local MAC counter to see all the new nude and brown make-up. Don’t you love the back of this Modal Jersey Scoop Neck Dress by Splendid, so cute right?? The length is perfect and the cut is comfortable, yet sexy.

Finding Fashion at the Beach

Don’t worry I am not talking about swimsuits just yet {prepare yourselves, the time is coming soon} but rather the cute things we wear on top of swimsuits. Since it isn’t quite full blown summer just yet any swim outing will probably require some sort of cover up and depending on the type of gal you are you might always require a swim cover up so lets look at some fashionable, versatile, and comfortable options.

Ella Moss Hollie Racerback Maxi Dress

Ok, first we have the full coverage of a maxi dress, which is super flattering for most body types. I love this Ella Moss Hollie Racerback Maxi Dress because it is casual enough for the beach yet elegant enough for a night out. I love pieces that can work for lots of occasions and this dress surly does that. Imagine it with aviator sunglasses,  beaded gladiator sandals and a bright yellow bag-cute!

Sweet Pea Sleeveless Empire Waist Dress

If you want something that shows a little more leg, try this ultra cute Sweet Pea Sleeveless Empire Waist Dress. Again the empire waist is a flattering cut that hides imperfections, and can easily transition from beach to going out. This dress can completely change looks with different accessories. 

Sweet Pea Tunic U Neck Top

Sweet Pea Tunic U Neck Top

For those of you that are daring enough to show a  bit more leg, I love this Sweet Pea Tunic U Neck Top, perfect for throwing on over white jeans right after a fun day at the beach. The bold black and white print is classy yet youthful.

So what is your cover up style? Less is more? Or more is more?

What Makes a Dress Perfect for Spring??

Like the flowers and buds in my front yard Spring Dresses are in bloom everywhere.  But as I sort my closet this spring I decided to create some criteria for what exactly qualifies a dress to be perfect for Spring.

First Fabric:  Spring is light and airy not thick and structured so the perfect spring dress needs to be a light fabric.  A great example of a lush fabric for spring is Splendid’s Modal Jersey V-Neck Dress.

Modal Jersey V Neck Dress from Splendid

This adorable dress can always be paired with leggings on the colder days, but it is a perfect choice for the spring dress.  I especially love the sleeves on this dress they are long and whimsical.

The second criteria for the perfect spring dress is color, I am particular to the pinks and greens for spring time this year.

Aggie B Neck Ruffle Dress

Aggie B Neck Ruffle Dress

While I love this Aggie V Neck Ruffle Dress dress for any season I think the emerald green is especially hot this spring.  The sleeveless detail also makes it a great spring or summer dress.  Also good to mention Ella Moss designed this dress with enough attention to detail you’ll never have to worry the dress is fully lined and hits just above the knee.

The final critieria I came up with for the perfect summer dress was the sleeves: short sleeved or sleeveless both scream spring to me.

Blair Widesleeve Dress from Ella Moss

Blair Widesleeve Dress from Ella Moss

This Ella Moss designer dress has widesleeved cap sleeves with a crew neck detail.  I love love love the pleats by the sleeves and the keyhole neckline.  While the model is wearing this dress in the admiral (navy) and White combo Ella Moss also designed it  in Lemonade (yellow) with Grey contrast.

Find these adorable dresses and many more perfect for Spring at Vintage Fringe!!
