Step Up Your Workout with New Gear

The London Olympics are just three days away, and I don’t know about you, but the games have always added a little pep to my workout step. There’s nothing like watching the world’s top athletes compete to inspire you to take your own workout to the next level.

And a new regimen needs new gear. Here, three looks that pack plenty of chic into their performance style.

LOOK 1
So Low Pullover Hoodie | So Low Cropped Pants | Volley Australia Sneakers

LOOK 2
LNA U Tank | Monrow Vintage Sweats | Alexander Wang Sneakers

LOOK 3
So Low Racer Back Tank | So Low Fold-Over Pants | Superga Sneakers

Introducing Sara Designs Watches

Blog_12-07-23_sarawatches

An international background and years of global travels influence the classic, yet bold timepieces created by Sara Designs.  Crafted in luxe leathers, glittering crystals, and quality movement, Sara Designs watches carefully walk the line between oversized and refined. Worn alone, a Sara Designs timepiece cuts an elegant line on the wrist, enhancing any classic look. But these watches play equally well with an armful of bangles, anchoring a stack of mixed metals for a look that’s equal parts polished and punk.

This DVF number can easily be transformed from day to night, worn to the office as well as that special event, and will remain a favorite in your closet for years to come!

The Dress: Diane von Furstenburg Maeryn Poplin Dress

Seen @ Shopbop: Madewell Tote

Seen at SB Madewell

With the endless stream of amazing products that flow through the halls of Shopbop, when a single bag ends up on the arms of four, five, and six different women, there is reason to take notice. Enter the Madewell Transport Tote. Simple, yet chic, this tote works in almost every situation. It feels comfortable on the shoulder, and after a few uses has that perfect, aged leather slouch. I have the brown and am already eyeing up the black. Trust me when I say, you need this bag.

Lingerie Conundrums Solved: Underthings for Your Trickiest Fashions

Between the cutouts and asymmetry on some of fashion’s finest designs this season, it can be a real challenge to find lingerie that works without being seen. Don’t get me wrong: we love the peek-a-boo trend here at Shopbop, but it’s simply not right for every look. That’s why I was pleasantly surprised to see how many of our lingerie brands (Calvin Klein, ResultWear, and Only Hearts to name but three) offered underthings that stand up to the season’s trickiest fashions.

THE ONE-SHOULDER DRESS & THE NOTCHED STRAPLESS DRESS

One Shoulder: Marchesa Notte Draped Dress, ResultWear Ava Bra, ResultWear Stella Slip.
Strapless: David Lerner Strapless Dress, Only Hearts Strapless Convertible Bra, Only Hearts So Fine Lace Thong.

Where My Shoes Have Been: Austin, Texas

Traveling is a common passion here at Shopbop, so you can imagine that a lot of our water cooler conversations deal with traveling’s most important issue: what to bring. This month, merchandiser Monica shed some light on the best shoes to take to the live music capitol of the world, Austin, Texas.

Packing is usually a three step process for me. A week in advance I make a preliminary list, then a few days before I leave, take it all out of my closet and make two piles: necessities and if-there-is-room. Finally, the night before, I stay up late doing the last edit. Turns out that all my planning was in vain, my Sam Edelman booties were the only pair of shoes I wore on my trip to Austin! They went with everything from cutoffs to maxis, and worked with my looks from day to night. I wore them nonstop: vintage shopping on South Congress, at the Rodrigo y Gabriela concert at Stubbs, the winery at Salt Lick, and even to Barton Springs pool!

Bold or Elegant: 2 Looks for Your Bridal Shower

Hi, Shoptalk readers! I'm Nicole from Nicole's Guide To Style, and I am beyond thrilled to be collaborating with Shopbop on their blog today. Shopbop has always been the first site I browse in the morning and my go-to for on trend pieces, so this is a real treat!

The summer months seem to entail attending at least one engagement party, bridal shower, or wedding, and I've got all you brides covered with what to wear. Are you a bold and dramatic or an elegant and sweet bride? I'll show you how to work both looks with a simple swap of accessories. Better yet, get more mileage out of the dress, and rock both looks to different events! If you're not a bride this look would still work for a special occasion like a birthday or cocktail party. Just make sure you don't wear it to someone else's wedding event. White is a big fashion don't for a wedding guest!

The Dress:
Alice + Olivia Chiffon One Shoulder Dress

Bold & Dramatic Bride:
Diane Von Furstenberg Lytton Clutch
Dara Ettingner Lillian Earrings
Charles Albert Quartz Cuff
Jacquie Aiche Hand Chain
Boutique 9 Justine Pumps

Elegant & Sweet Bride:
Whiting & Davis Crystal Clutch
Shashi Pave Earrings
Maison Martin Margiela Ring
Jennifer Zeuner Love Bracelet
Alejandro Ingelmo Grace Pumps

XOXO, Nicole

Ask Shopbop: A Class Act

Blog_12-07-18_reunion

I have a class reunion coming up, and I want an outfit that looks effortless, yet fantastic. Can you help?

It just so happens that I have a reunion coming up as well! Reunion outfits require a thoughtful approach. I put my stock in age-appropriate, timeless wardrobe essentials that incorporate right amount of trend. It’s so important to be comfortable and true to yourself. This is not the moment to test run “the new you.”

If the reunion is right around the corner, go with a fresh Jenni Kayne shift dress. Universally flattering and versatile, the shift is a good go-to for ladies of all age groups. Pair it back to sleek Loeffler Randal flats, toss on an open-knit cardigan, and reach for simple ginette_ny jewelry. For a casual, late summer or fall reunion, I love the idea of sharp denim, a great moto jacket, and heeled booties. An IRO jacket brings a little color to the look while still staying chic and neutral. If your get-together is more of a dressed-up affair, then a sleek knit 3.1 Phillip Lim dress is always a great option. The sleeves ensure you won’t be cold as we head into fall, and the length and fitted silhouette give it a bit of attitude. Pair it with a heeled bootie, easy-to-manage clutch, and a striped Boy. by Band of Outsiders blazer.
