Double Breasted Cocoon Coat with Bow

When it comes to fashionable colors, one of our favorite vintage colors is green.  So when we learned last week that Pantone had announced that the must-have color for 2013 was emerald green we were delighted.  This color is a great statement color that can easily be blended into your wardrobe in a variety of different clothing options.

It is that time of year where jackets are imperative and finding a fashionable jacket in emerald green is no problem at Vintage Fringe.  One of our favorite designers, new to Vintage Fringe is Tulle which does such a great job of creating vintage style fashions and this season they utilized a lot of emerald green colors in their designs.  Whether your favorite is the Double Breasted Cocoon Coat in Deep Emerald which features a 3/4 length and cute gathered sleeves and our favorite an adorable bow in back adding to the adorable vintage style elements.  If you need something with a little more of a trench style, then consider the Tie Waist Coat with Epaulettes also in an Emerald Green shade that features a more fitted style.  The tie waist is secured in back with wide sewn in belt loops so it won’t move around while you are wearing it and it gives you flexibility to wear it open or unbuttoned without worrying about the loose tie belt.  The Epaulettes are just the tip of the iceberg so to speak with the details on this jacket like the pockets at the top of the jacket and on the sides at the bottom and the matching belted detail around the cuffs on the jacket.  We have no shortage of green jackets including the previously mentioned Tie Waist Coat with Ruffles and the classic Single Breasted Coat which comes in both Green and Black.

If you are looking for something green to wear under your jacket, you can find a number of great options of tops and dresses in the gorgeous green color.  Check out the Dolman Sleeve Scoopneck top by Sunday in Brooklyn one of our great indie designers.  This top utilizes a number of great fashion trends like the dolman sleeves that are so popular right now and also colorblocking with the contrasting green and ivory colors. This top is silk and truly a luxurious statement top.  It features an elastic gathered waist giving it the over-sized flowing look around the waist.  This top looks great with a pair of skinny jeans or a pencil skirt and boots.  Another great green option is the Sui Kimono Top by Ogle which is loaded with great stylish details.  The Sui top is a great way to showcase the gorgeous green color and also features great style with the lattice detail down the back of the top and the cute kimono style sleeves with a tie in the middle of the waist.  A great top to wear out at night and classy enough to wear to the office as well.

If you want great dress options in green consider the Button Front Sleeveless Dress by Tulle which is a great retro style dress featuring ruffles around the sleeves, a tie waist and buttons down the center of the dress.  This dress is a great versatile party dress that is also stylish and comfortable while also being adorable.  The Zahara Knot Dress by Velvet in Lilypad features a great comfortable jersey cotton long sleeve dress with a knot detail at the base of the v neckline.  This dress also looks great with boots and is a great versatile go to dress. Finally, another great dress that you can pair with leggings and boots as well is the Sammy Long Sleeve Belted Dress also by Velvet.  This dress features a gorgeous Jellybean green color contrasted with a white on the modern pattern.  With a tie at the waist and a henley neckline accented with buttons, this tunic style dress is a great go to option for everyday while still looking super stylish.

Celeb Fashion at the MTV Movie Awards

This week was the MTV Movie Awards and although it is clearly no Oscars, it is fun to see what the celebrities are wearing this summer. This awards show is more casual and most celebs opted for shorter dresses. {Although a few rocked the still alive and kicking maxi dress trend} Here are a few of my favorites:

Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson is looking super chic in this green lace and black belt dress. I love the cut and length of this dress, it is sexy without being too overt. I think that I have mentioned before how big green was/still is in fashion.

Jessica Biel

Jessica Biel

Jessica Biel looks fabulous in this outfit; I am loving all the different textures used and the basic colors with a pop of pale pink. Jessica has always been stylish and this is another great choice in my mind, it really accentuates her waist and looks like it would be very fun to wear. I think you could easily achieve a similiar look with a sheer shirt over a cami, tucked into one of those ruffle skirts that seem to be everywhere with a bow belt on top. It might not be quite as dramatic but it would look great for grocery shopping and lunch with the ladies!

Nicky Hilton

Nicky Hilton

Nicky Hilton‘s causal dress was perfect for summer with its teal, gray and cream stripes. Again, stripes are everywhere, even at awards shows! What are your favorite celebrity looks??

What to Wear on St. Patrick’s Day

This Wednesday Irish or not so Irish it’s probably in your best interest to wear green.  I am still trying to decide just how festive I want to look for a St. Patty’s day party this weekend.  Just in case anyone else is still trying to pick your outfit out.  Below are some of my favorites to choose from.

Laurie B. Emmy Cardigan Sweater in Kelly Green

Laurie B. Emmy Cardigan Sweater in Kelly Green

This Cardigan Sweater is designed by Laurie B. and is the sweater I receive the most compliments on.  I love how it snaps at the neck and then slits open for a cardigan feel.   The pocket detail and long length makes this sweater so comfortable and easy to wear.   I always pair this sweater with the Zooey long sleeve crew neck in white. Considering this sweater is now in the outlet- it’s a steal of a deal. Maybe the luck  of the Irish.

The other shirt I am considering for St. Patrick’s day is this Victoria Front Tie Top designed by Ella Moss.

There are so many details I love about this top.  First I love the ruffles at the neck line and the cuffs.  This flirty top is made of Ella Moss’s modal fabric which is super durable and the ultimate in comfort.

Some of you celebrating St. Patrick’s Day may want to dress it up.  For a dressy night on the town I would suggest the Aggie V Neck Ruffle Dress.

This empire waist dress is so adorable and so unique you will definitely stand out as the best dressed in the crowd.  I love how fun and playful yet flattering the stripes are on this dress.  St. Patty’s Day or not you will be sure to gave good luck the night you wear this dress.  For any other St. Patrick’s day inspirations just visit VintageFringe.com and search by color.  Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!!
