On Trend: Birkenstocks

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, Birkenstocks have comeback this season with a vengeance and we’ve caved. There are arguments left and right about who called it first, whether they’re fashionable or just plain ugly, but there’s no denying that they are here and refuse to be ignored. Bloggers and celebrities have been seen adorning Birks accompanied by on-the-run casual outfits for a thrown-together-for-comfort kind of way. When we went to New York last week for market we found every store had Birks and after walking for hours in the city, we couldn’t help but get some for ourselves.

Stripes on Stripes

There’s something so classic and cool about stripes. Whether paired up with a flirty skirt or dressed down with distressed denim, stripes are a closet staple and definitely on our top ten list of closet must-haves.

We love taking a leaf out of the French je ne sais quois attitude book and pairing stripes with trenches and other classic elements. Julie (Sincerely, Jules) does such a great job of mixing the clean look with denim shorts for a much more laid-back, California spring vibe.

And another of our favorites, stripes and a pop of color! Aimee (Song of Style) generally has a super colorful, vibrant, and bold look that we love but we’re also very fond of her more basic side. Her thin striped tee with pops of different pink hues is definitely one of our favorite recent looks, toning down with neutrals but still maintaining her personal style with those sunglasses and hot pink pumps.

Mixing multiple different trends is definitely a way to get noticed. We love how these two ladies Chriselle, left (The Chriselle Factor) and Jenny, right (neonblush) took stylish, casual, and cool to another level by throwing denim overalls over top of their striped tees. Add sunglasses and minimal accessories for a totally enviable super-stylish-girl-next-door look.

You can find stripes easily at most retailers but we are true believers in splurging on items as lasting as a good quality striped top. Some of our favorite places to shop include Madewell, J.Crew, Zara (blazer pictured here – beautiful as a statement addition to your wardrobe), and Everly of course!

On Trend: Espadrilles for Summer

Espadrilles are great alternative to your everyday summer sandals. We’ve been seeing them everywhere (especially thanks to these Chanel beauties) on fashion bloggers and celebrities alike.

Espadrilles are not only versatile in types of styles but also where you can wear them – take them straight from the beach to brunch or a casual date. Pick them up in a neutral color and they’ll be your go-to almost every day, or choose something a little more daring to add a special kick to your wardrobe. 

Some of our favorites are below!

Color Post: Watercolors

Today we’re bringing you a different kind of color post to give you some insight to our color process here at Everly. Each piece we design goes through so many steps before ever making it to stores and color is definitely one of our favorite stops.

We try to embrace as many colors as possible with our styles so we need a lot of inspiration to help us keep things fresh and new. One of our favorite ways to do that is surprisingly simple – play with it! We spent an entire afternoon last week working with watercolors and just admiring the subtle differences and beauty in the range of colors that exist out there. It was an amazing and fun way to take a mental break from the craziness of work while still staying productive.
