Not just fashion, but style seems to be what the world of clothing, shoes, and accessories is all about these days. I mean we have entire TV shows dedicated to enhancing your style, style makeovers, and of course the life of a certain stylists (bananas).
With all of this style happening around us everyday it is no surprise the style guru has gone from the TV screen to the computer screen. Retail stores have made it possible to access style advice at the click of a button, with It Lists and editor’s picks from fashion and style pros like Ken Downing and Rachel Zoe.
Here are some of our favorite picks from the stores we love, and style professionals we love even more.
Neiman Marcus’ Fashion Director Ken Downing shares pieces that are currently on his radar with Ken’s Picks.
Out of the 50 or so pieces Ken picked we are can’t take our eyes off of the Rag & Bone Baily cutout leather top and the striking Bluebird charmeuse, wide-leg pants.
Tribal print is still in style, according to Ken, with this fabulous jade Obsidian dress from interior designer Kelly Wearstler. Capped sleeves and an A-Line skirt making this cool dress multi-seasonal.
Net-A-Porter takes the idea of edits one step further with their “Shop the Magazine” which is like one-click shopping from your favorite fashion editorials (amazing)!
We chose these J Band Denim distressed boyfriend jeans from the DJ B Traits Style edits. A pair of jeans you can wear with sneakers or heels, you really can’t go wrong.
Piperlime hit the jackpot when they secured Rachel Zoe as their Celebrity Guest Editor (among Rachel Bilson, Olivia Palermo, and Byrdie Bell). You can literally get dressed head-to-toe with Rachel’s Latest Obsessions, with her picks ranging from apparel to shoes to handbags and accessories.
How hot are these L.A.M.B. Ibbie sandals? These leather 5-inch bad
boys girls will insure your street cred.
Pair with this feminine Vamos Dress by Nanette Lepore. The bright sunflower, cotton lace dress will have you feeling like you are on summer vacation on your favorite European island…even if you are sitting in your cubicle at work.
Nordstrom takes it to their blog, The Thread. What we love most about this is that more often than not the choices come from actual in-store stylists. Seattle Store Personal Stylist Manager, Shannon, gives us her top 10 picks for summer. Number one on her list is a denim shirt and we whole-heartedly concur!
