Velvet by Graham and Spencer Sweaters: Cashmere and Cardigans

Vintage inspired cashmere sweaters were all the rage when it came to the runways during New York Fashion Week. Every designer and brand from Gucci to Velvet by Graham and Spencer has picked up the new trend, which pairs casual sweaters with luxury materials such as cashmere for a modern take on an old look.

While many of the sweaters that models wore may seem out of reach featuring bold styles and luxurious materials designers like Velvet by Graham and Spencer have created modern, wearable styles that are contemporary and stylish without the runway.  As you probably already know, cashmere offers an unforgettable texture and warmth which makes it a must have fashion piece for your winter wardrobe. Some of Velvet’s latest collection like the Jamila Cashmere Crewneck Sweater is a great demonstration of a mix of old and new styles with the retro sweatshirt style crew neckline combined with the current color blocking trend. This sweater is stylish and trendy while still being comfortable and easy to wear.

Don’t worry if you’ve never worn cashmere before. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

4 Ways to Wear Cashmere Sweaters by Velvet

  1. Pair cashmere sweaters with white or black skinny leg jeans to create the ultimate fashion statement. For a bolder look, try a royal blue, teal or bright pink color jeans or leggings to go with a white cashmere sweater.
  2. Wear a sweater with a form-fitting skirt over tights. White cashmere, bright skirts and navy or dark tights are perfect for days that are cool.
  3. Wear a button-down blouse under a V-neck cashmere sweater, allowing the hem and collar to pop through to provide contrast. Patterns on the button-down add interest to a solid-colored sweater, and this look is perfect for office casual.
  4. Opt for solid, color-on-color stripes or subtle patterns when it comes to picking leggings for cashmere sweater dresses. Dress up the style with a thick belt, bangles on the wrists and ankle boots for a comfortable look that will never go out of style.

Cardigans On the Runway

Retro sweaters and cropped jackets weren’t the only items to make a comeback on down the runway this year, either. Cardigans are everywhere this season and a piece this easy to wear is sure to fill up closet space quickly. Cardigans by Velvet promise comfort without sacrificing quality. Velvet’s Vandora cardigan as an example utilizes a blend of modal and cotton fabric which gives it a soft, textured look that is reminiscent to the popular burn-out fabric trend. Like Velvet by Graham and Spencer cashmere sweaters, these cardigans feel amazing to the touch, and the Velvet offers several styles for fashionistas to choose from: zipper front, flyaway and cropped, among them.

Grab a casual t-shirt and jeans to wear with cropped Velvet brand cardigan for a casual look during the day. You’ll be comfortable as you run errands and shop for groceries, but you’ll never look sloppy. The same cardigan becomes office appropriate when paired with pumps, black or charcoal slacks and a pretty blouse and you can even go out in the evening by swapping slacks and shoes for fitted dark wash jeans and boots.

Tulle Jackets – Essential Vintage Style

This season Tulle Jackets are a must have for new jacket additions to your Vintage Style wardrobe.  For those of you who are just learning about Tulle and their amazing vintage inspired new jackets, Tulle’s goal is to design vintage inspired modern clothing. They initially began as a line focused on Outerwear, but are currently also designing adorable dresses, cardigans, tops, skirts and accessories. Since this is the peak of jacket season, we wanted to focus on some of our favorite Tulle Jackets and how they can be a great addition to your vintage style wardrobe.

Tulle Tie Waist Coat with Ruffle

Tulle Tie Waist Coat with Ruffle

The Tulle Tie Waist Coat with Ruffle is the perfect example of an adorable vintage inspired jacket with ruffle detail down the center and accenting the pockets on this collared jacket.  I am a big fan of the stylish Deep Emerald Green color as well.  The jacket also looks stylish and cute with the tie around the waist.  The embellishments like the ruffles, the large buttons, the pockets and the tie waist make this a great vintage inspired statement coat for your closet this season.   Tulle Jackets are fashion jackets and not going to be the best thing for your ski vacation, but are perfect for those chilly days.  I love to wear this jacket with boots and a pencil skirt giving it that modern vintage edge.

Tulle Funnel Collar Coat

Next is the Tulle Funnel Collar Coat.  This jacket features a wide oversized collar accented with buttons and snaps to hold it in place.  The jacket features oversized buttons which add a stylish detail to the collar, sleeves and center of the jacket.  Also adding to the vintage feel is the faux belt in back secured by two more large buttons for contrast.  This jacket is also a bit longer which pulls in more of the vintage style.  That length is also so great to pair with boots and skinny jeans or leggings.  My favorite part is the teal blue color.  It is not your everyday coat color and is sure to stand out in a good way. The fabric on the coat also features a textured weave which gives it added depth and adds to the vintage style.

 

Tulle Leopard Long Sleeve Faux Fur Coat

Tulle Leopard Long Sleeve Faux Fur Coat

Finally, what is more vintage than a cropped faux fur jacket?  The Leopard Long Sleeve Coat features a gorgeous and soft faux fur leopard print fabric in a cropped button-up almost blazer style jacket.  This jacket features big black beaded buttons in front and a well done faux fur animal print.  Sometimes faux fur doesn’t turn out well and looks cheap and very obviously faux fur.  This is well done and looks stylish and classic as much as any leopard print can be classic.  Our stylists love to style this jacket with tall black boots to give it that modern edgy look that works so well with any sort of leopard print pattern.  A true statement piece, this jacket is a must have to round out your vintage style wardrobe.

As you can see there are a variety of stylish looks that utilize great vintage style trends from fabrics to collars and it is so wonderful to find them in jackets which really are such an essential part of your vintage style wardrobe.  Most importantly vintage style jackets can be such a fun way to add vintage style to any outfit.  Tulle Jackets are a great way to do that and the three jackets highlighted in this post today are really just a sample of what makes Tulle jackets such great vintage style pieces.  These jackets are just a few examples of our favorite vintage style coats this season.  What are some of yours?

Velvet by Graham and Spencer Ruz Poncho

Velvet by Graham and Spencer is one of our favorite designers at Vintage Fringe.  Today we wanted to spotlight a few of our favorite pieces in their latest collections and highlight some of the reasons why we are such big fans.

At its core, Velvet’s line centers around staple jersey cottons and comfortable casual styles; however, they have also expanded their collections to include elements of faux fur, lace, vibrant patterns, cashmere, and so much more.  Consider a few of our latest favorite pieces as examples of their fabulous wearable fashions.

Consider the Ruz Faux Fur Poncho/Cape.  This jacket truly typifies a modern approach that incorporates a gorgeous vintage style.  The Ruz poncho really reminds us of something you would see on any of the ladies in Mad Men.  It also feels as luxurious as it looks and in a sleek black color makes for a true statement piece.  True to the poncho style, the Ruz jacket is a pullover jacket and flares toward the waist.  This piece is a true paradox as it is bold and yet classic simultaneously.  Elegant ponchos are a big fashion trend this season and a great way to add a new distinctive feminine piece into your wardrobe.

Next the Odet Asymmetrical Hem Skirt features another fashion trend you will see this season with the asymmetrical hemline.  The skirt flares out at the knee with the cascading hemline and off-center seam that gives this skirt added depth and texture.  The Odet skirt also features a gathered waistline that is fitted, but not tight.  The sister to the Odet skirt, the Pia Long Asymmetrical Hem skirt features the same style, but with a longer length. Both skirts are comfortable, sophisticated and feminine which makes them great staples for your wardrobe his season. These skirts are also great options for dressy events as well as casual and I love pairing them with a top like the Giann Cowlneck top also by Velvet.

Velvet Kayin Scoopneck Dress

Velvet Kayin Scoopneck Dress

Finally the Kayin Scoop Neck Dress is another great example of Velvet’s expanded collections.  This dress, like the Odet Skirt, features a rayon blend which feels super soft and adds to the comfortable feel.  The Kayin skirt features a loose gathered waistband and a wide short sleeve.  This dress looks stunning with boots and can also be paired with a belt.  It is available at Vintage Fringe in Charcoal and Navy, and is a great option for your fall wardrobe.

As you can see, Velvet by Graham and Spencer’s latest collection features a variety of distinctive clothing options incorporating the latest in fashion trends in a stylish and wearable way.  These few pieces are just a few great examples of the depth of style and fashion that Velvet’s lines have to offer.  Best of all, all of their clothing is Made in the USA, in Los Angeles in fact which in the current economy is a great advantage.

Another great vacation piece is the Sintia Pencil Skirt by designer Velvet by Graham and Spencer.  This skirt certainly wins the award for being the most versatile as you can truly wear this skirt with flip flops or heels and dress it up or down depending on the occasion.  Not to mention that finding a comfortable pencil skirt can be seemingly impossible some times.  This skirt features an elegant pencil skirt style and a wide waist band that is not constrictive or uncomfortable and gives you the option to position the skirt at whatever level you prefer in terms of high or low waists.  It is also available in a variety of great colors like grey, brown, navy, black and light green.

Finally, the other component of island vacation clothing is pattern.  We also love great tanks like the Hi-Lo Tank Top or the Sleeveless Tie Tank both by designer Sweet Pea by Stacy Frati.  Sweet Pea’s creative and bold use of patterns makes these tanks great stylish pieces that are both comfortable and classy, but also vibrant and exciting pieces to incorporate into your closet.   Each of these tanks are great pieces that can be worn for dressier vacation events like dinners out or parties and can also double as great casual tops by day.

As you can see there are a number of great options for vintage island style clothing and no matter what your own personal preferences, you can use these suggestions for ideas on how you can find modern day pieces to incorporate vintage styles while also finding pieces that work well for your own versatile needs.

Skirts are really a summer staple in my closet and finding a great classic vintage style skirt is certainly a must have for your wardrobe.  True classic style skirts are timeless and never go out of style and best of all can be worn with so many different types of tops, sweaters and jackets.

Consider the Sintia Pencil Skirt as a classic style skirt that is part of designer Velvet by Graham and Spencer’s Gauzy Whisper collection featuring a light weight gauzy cotton fabric.  This skirt features cotton lining so it is not sheer and still manages to have a lightweight so that it is comfortable and also doesn’t look like a thick jersey fabric locking it into only being a casual piece.  This skirt can easily go from the office to running errands and comes with a high waist and with the cotton fabric has some give and stretch too it so it is very forgiving.  Despite this skirt’s great functional features, this skirt is a true classic pencil skirt that really is timeless.  We love finding vintage style pencil skirts in a variety of colors too which is a great way to add versatile choices for a classic and let’s be honest sometimes with classic vintage style pieces you can’t just have one because you don’t run into perfect pieces everyday.

This classic skirt is the everyday summer skirt that you really can never have enough of.  Perfect with flip flops or a blazer, this versatile skirt really Is a go to all purpose piece.  In addition, while it is great for warm weather, it will also work well practically year round.  It is also long enough and features a high enough waist that you have lots of added versatility with accessories like shoes and boots that are great ways to accent this great skirt.

Another great classic vintage style skirt is the Hilton Peasant Skirt.  The peasant style skirt is a great vintage style that is totally en vogue this season and is a great casual skirt that is great for spring and summer.   The Hilton Peasant skirt is a great example of the ever popular tiered skirt style.   This skirt features a wide waistband that can be worn up or folded down depending on your personal preference which provides this skirt with an added versatility.  The long length of this skirt hitting about half way between the knee and the ankle pairs well with the high waist line and the fitted waist gives it a flattering look.  Best of all this skirt is the ultimate comfort skirt, it is loose and comfortable making it wearable to practically any summer event and with ballet slippers or flip flops.
