Splendid’s Stripes

Stripes are everywhere this season, from handbags to blouses, stripes are making a fashion statement for spring and summer. Most women{myself included} probably have heard at some point that wearing stripes horizontally makes your body look wider. This is false! Well, let me clarify that, some stripes may do that, but not most. Focus on a great fit and stripes that hit your body in the right area and stripes can actually make you look smaller! That’s right, you heard me, they can actually make you look slimmer. Now that I have your attention, look at these Splendid tops that are perfect and striped! This lightweight 4 Band Long sleeve Boatneck Top by Splendid is ultra comfortable and perfect for the transition from winter to spring to summer.

Next is the super cute Navy Slub Shadow Waist Tie Top by Splendid. I love the long fit of this shirt, which makes it perfect for a casual swimsuit cover up all well. I also think this shirt would be great with bermuda shorts and metallic sandals. This top is also available in a cheery red and navy stripe.

This 2×1 White Stripe Hoodie by Splendid {these people know their stripes!} is a great fit with a banded bottom, which is always figure flattering and buttons down the front that would be great open to show off a cute tank underneath. The 3/4 length sleeves are ideal for the weather right now and the hood adds a bit of a fun, casual vibe to this top.

Lastly, look at the Variegated Stripe Loose Jersey Wrap by {you guessed it} Splendid. I loved the variegated stripes on this wrap, and wraps are so great because they can be worn with so many different things for so many different looks. With the economy how it is, it is nice to have something that can really work for casual, dressed up, or even a cover up.

Five Fabulous Fall Essentials

Velvet Nanelle Scoop Neck

This week we’re focused on fashion essentials for fall.  The first key to fall fashion this year and every year for that matter is layering.  The key to any layered look in fall starts for me with a  few great long sleeve tee shirts. Long sleeve tees not only keep you warm, but are the  essential first step to any layered look.  Add a vest, cardigan or sweater on top of it and you have a versatile and fashionable outfit.

This fall I have found two essential designer long sleeve tees that will get you through both fall and winter. The first long sleeve tee I love is the Nanelle long sleeve tee from Velvet by Graham and Spencer. It’s easy to see how versatile this shirt is, but what is hard to see is how amazingly soft and comfortable this baby jersey fabric feels.  I also love the colors it comes in. Pictured above in Rain, it also comes in a darker green, ivory, and a taupe color.

Another great choice for best long sleeve shirt for fall is by Splendid. This tee is also super soft, durable, and washable. The length on this shirt is perfect, and the colors available are black, white, brown, and green.  I wear this shirt under many of my other splendid tees to add warmth and style to many tops.  The fabric on this top is a lightweight, super soft cotton that feels truly amazing on.  It is a sheerer fabric than the Nanelle scoop neck because the fabric is a lighter cotton than the Nanelle.  I love layering this top under cardigans or blazers.

Stay tuned for my 4 other fabulous fall essentials…. and as always visit www.VintageFringe.com for these and many more fashion must haves.

Splendid Clothing is Worth Every Penny

The Splendid Clothing line is all about fashionable and flattering clothing made from the softest and highest quality fabrics, which are almost always machine washable. One of my favorite versatile pieces this summer is the Splendid Cotton Slub Hoodie.  Made of Splendid’s french terry fabric, which is a great soft, sweatshirt fabric, this top can be worn as a short dress, swim cover up, or sporty top.

Just like so much of stylish designer clothing this season, the length is trendy and flattering allowing this top to be worn in so many different styles with so many different combinations.   Not to mention the great empire waist with a tie giving this top that added feminine touch.  I love the green color that is so in this summer.    Another favorite Splendid tee that I have been wearing this summer is the sublime Oscelot Print silk/cotton boat neck tee.
