CL Fall Collection: Get The Look For Less

 b2ap3_thumbnail_blog-photo_20150823-174020_1.jpg

Do you feel it?  That slight nip in the air inkling to fall's arrival?  Living in Florida, the seasonal changes are subtle, but if you pay attention you'll notice a drop in humidity and a cool Gulf breeze hinting to the promise of cooler fall weather on the way.  Wherever you live, I'm sure you've already started to experience  your  own Fall sightings!  My newest Colleen Lopez Collection is brimming with everything you'll need to look and feel fabulous for all the cooler days and nights up ahead.  I wanted to give you a peek at my favorite "must haves" of the season and how to have great style while staying on a budget!  Here's a few of the things I'm falling for this season...

 

The Game Changer 

The easiest way to get more mileage out of your summer sleeveless dresses and tops is by topping them off with a chic, arm-flattering shrug.  My Colleen Lopez Touch of Class gets an A+ for it's great bracelet sleeve, stretchy-soft knit, and arm slimming silhouette.  The best part of the euqasion is the $29 price tag - Move to the head of the class!

Theirs: $895.00 VS. Ours: $29.90  

Shades of Autumn

 We saw the most gorgeous, romantic  blooms on the runways for fall featuring saturated Jewel tone colors painted against a black backdrop.  My new CL Floral Print dress will bring you "Compliments Galore" with flattering rushing, and a broach detail at the waist!  Figure flattering and budget friendly - Say "Yes" to this dress!!

 Designer Fall Floral Dress VS. CL "Compliments Galore" Faux-Wrap Dress 

Theirs: $1095.00 VS. Ours: $59.90

The Slimming Dress 

Every girl needs that one "Pow" dress that will give her "body confidence" and make her instantly look slimmer! My new Office and After Dress will take you from desk to dinner in sleek, sophisticated show stopping style!  The strategic tiered layers and built in tummy and hip control make this dress money well spent (and dollars saved) in a savey fashionista's closet.

Theirs: $160.00 VS. Ours:  $59.90

The Singular Sensation

Be the Toast of the Town in my new "one hit wonder"  Lattice Neck Top Jumpsuit.  Easy, comfortable and chic, a jumpsuit with a peek-a-boo neckline will add a touch of sex appeal to to your fall wardrobe!  Top it off with my finishing touch shrug or a great jacket and you'll be ready for a day at the office or a night on the town!

Theirs: $695.00 VS. Ours: $59.90

  

The Perfect Peasant 

 Math was never my strong suit, but here's one problem that's easy to solve:  A stunning print + flattering sleeve + Touch of Lace = The Perfect Peasant Top!  My Love Lace top is my new favorite go-to for dressing up a pair of jeans, throwing on with a skirt, or layering under a jacket.   It looks beautiful worn on the shoulders for a pretty feminine look for day and off the shoulder for a romantic date night.  Priced at only $39 - Problem Solved!!

 Fall Floral Blouse VS. CL "Love Lace" Peasant Top

Theirs: $368.00 vs. Ours: $39.90

 

The Flowy Blouse

 One of the easiest ways to "Dress to Finesse" is by putting on a soft, flowy blouse this season!  A dramatic "Cape" sleeve adds a dash of drama and easy, breezy style to your wardrobe!   Every girl should have her own super hero cape - it's a bird, it's a plane - it's Super Woman (that would be you!)

 Theirs: $187.00 VS. Ours: $44.90

The Cozy Sweater

Talk about a killer combo!  The elegance of an open cable knit sweater and the everyday ease of a poncho puts this beautiful sweater at the top of my list!  Great for transiting from late summer into early fall and excellent for layering when the temps really start to drop - Hello, Sweater Girl!

Fringe Benefits

All over the runways, fringe has trailed from the world's top designed gowns.  From vibrant colors and bohemian prints, to never fail blacks and ivories, this dreamy, 70's inspired ponchos are sure to be a fan favorite in every color! 

 

Tip: Pair with your favorite skinny jean - Volume over lean is the way to go with this fashion must have.

 

 

Maximize Your Spring Style

If you could look taller, slimmer, and more feminine in an instant, what would you say?  Welcome to the world of the maxi dress. This season, I've incorporated some fresh, colorful prints into my collection ( of course there will always be a black!), created a flattering sleeve and neckline along with a side slit for added body confidence! 

Tip: Pair with your favorite wedge for a longer, leaner proportion.

 

 

Lace With Edge 

b2ap3_thumbnail_DSC02183_20150317-162425_1.jpgb2ap3_thumbnail_DSC02200_20150317-162437_1.jpg

Ahh, leather and lace, they go together like chocolate and bunnies! Ladylike style is de rigueur for Spring and this season lace gets toughened up by way of supple leathers and moto shapes!  The best part mix and match all of the pieces for work appropriate outfits as well as date night ensembles. 

Tip: To soften the edge, work these pieces back to tee shirts and denim. 

A Peek of Skin

Gone are the days of hot pants and mini skirts!  Today, showing skin is more subtle, but undoubtedly just as sexy!  Between cold-shoulder tops, lace cutouts, and crotchet, you'll be playing peek-a-boo all season long!

Tip: When you're wearing peek-a-boo clothing, add self-tanner or bronzer for a healthy sun kissed glow!

Forget pulling a rabbit out of a hat,  my next magic trick will give you the illusion of an hourglass figure in no time!  Use prints to your advantage - print placement to enhance or conceal areas of your body is the easiest way to look like you have the beach body that you've been working hard for ( or not!).  Your Easter bouquet has never looked so good!

Tip: Keep your jewelry simple when wearing these prints. Choose bracelets, rings & earrings for a polished look.  

 

Be sure to join me for the debut of my Colleen Lopez Spring Collection at 1:00 PM ET on March 18th - See you soon for a Spring Fashion Fling!

Yes, this wardrobe warrior is the answer to whatever your weekend calls- lunch with the girls, nesting around the house, even a hot date!  You will be amazed at what one sassy sweater can do!

Maybe you will be giving your house a little TLC this weekend, or maybe just yourself! Pair this soft cardigan with a simple tee, a lounge pant, and some toe wiggling slippers for a Saturday with your favorite t.v. show.  The best part is, you will still look finished yet cozy in case you have an unexpected guest or two arrive at your door ( hopefully they will have a bottle of wine in hand!)

Sunday brunch with your bunch is worth a week of waiting, especially if you have something cute to wear!  This cardigan even looks fabulous with a pencil skirt, and makes the workwear piece more approachable, relaxed, and sexy!

New Year, New Style

 b2ap3_thumbnail_Blog-Photo.jpg

Looking to try new styles for the new year?  Mid-winter style can feel dull, yet there are a few new style switches for the new year will give you confidence all year long and will surely last longer than some of those resolutions ( I'm sorry but kale just doesn't satisfy a girl like a piece of chocolate does!) 

 

1. Go Long Over Lean 

b2ap3_thumbnail_nene-by-nene-leakes-drape-front-duster-cardigan-d-2015011213501062347968_233.jpgb2ap3_thumbnail_nene-by-nene-leakes-hi-low-knit-tee-d-20150115151019947384351_022.jpg

Try a new silhouette for style switch! An ultra long, draped sweater or an angled tunic looks fantastic over slim pants, plus you can even wear it in the colder months!

 

2. Wine Tasting 

Are you a wine lover? Savor the flavors of the season in these rich hues!  Even if you normally shy away from a bold color, you can take a sip of this trend and slip into a light, blush hue which is always a classic color for Spring!

Plum

Merlot

Blush

3. Western Inspired Accessories 

 

Some of the most popular designers showcased the inspiration that they found in the west!  Leather fringed boots and bags are all the rage as are injections of turquoise jewelry throughout your wardrobe!  Even though these Western styles are more "with-it" than wild, you can still let out a little "Yee-haw", though I would advise that you do it in the confines of your own closet - loved ones may start to wonder!

4. Fashion Runners

 


Fashionable athletic gear is still on the rise, and so are its shoes!  If you love some height, yet are resolved not to wear uncomfortable shoes this year ( my hand is raised!), then you may have just found your perfect shoe match - platform sneakers!  Luxe textiles and elevated shapes have taken over the shoe world.  Give your sneaks a revamp and jump on this trend!

5. Top Handle Tote 

 


Structured yet fun shapes are what these bags are all about.  Take hold of your style ( and your handbag) and try one of these new totes! Dog approved!
