Going from freezing temperatures to sunshine and 60’s can be a struggle in determining your daily wardrobe. How on earth does one prepare for the day that is ahead of you?!
Insert e.Allen…..and voila! Our brand prides itself in building a capsule wardrobe with women’s everyday lifestyle in mind. Whether styling a look for a specific event or adding a multitude of pieces that can be pulled from your closet at will year after year, our stores are full of fabulous finds that allow for versatility and original style regardless of “the look” and feel a customer is going for.
With the varied temps and unpredictable forecast, it’s easy to be THAT person standing in the middle of your closet on the struggle bus unable to determine what to wear. While what we wear most certainly doesn’t define us, feeling confident in one’s outfit selection can certainly evoke a solid sense of self and get us excited for the day ahead.
The intermediate seasons of spring and fall are the perfect ones to play with layering. Not only does integrating different elements into an outfit make it more interesting, it also provides different options that suit changing temperatures that occur throughout the day! Our stylists have a knack for this skill….and it truly is one! Incorporating different pieces that add interest, but NOT bulk, is a necessity in defining original style. These are are top 3 layering looks of this spring season…
LAYERS OF LUXE…
- Soft & Edgy – MISA dresses are personable and celebrate femininity. We have SUCH a great selection of these in stores and online right now! Another good dress option to add into your rotation is our ice blue tiered, button down dress by The Shirt. Topping one of these off with a BlankNYC leather jacket thrown over your shoulders adds such a fun element to an outfit. While keeping the chill at bay, you can celebrate the fun of ladylike detail and keep warm by adding some edge that a leather texture provides.
- The Tailored Classic – The Cleobella khaki trench should be in all of your closets! This year-round piece is amazing and suitable for any month of the year. In one of our recent SM stories, we put it over a crisp white button down and black cigarette skinnies for a classic, Audrey Hepburn-infused look. A dressed-down (yet still on point) look is pairing it with some great tennies while running errands about town!
- Casual Perfection – Denim is always a YES! Our ABLE jacket can literally be layered over practically everything e.Allen has to offer! Over a dress to keep warm and or over a white tee for an All-American girl approach, a good denim jacket goes a loooooooooooooong way in the wardrobe department. For a look that is sure to turn some heads, layering it with a MISA flirty miniskirt and our stark white Urson boot is such a fashion-forward look.
