World Wednesday – Streets of Tokyo

A couple weeks ago, we introduced our fans to the very playful street styles of Tokyo where we found layers of bright colors and exotic prints. Today, you can discover a different side of the fashion in Tokyo which is very modern and more structured.

The ultra-sleek cuts and fittings remain to be the symbols of Japanese fashion. While the stylish figures on the streets of Tokyo continue to embrace the layering of unique pieces, we see a more neutral color palette implemented in the outfits shown below. The colors tune down the edgy pieces in order to make them fit together.

To utilize these style languages, we would suggest picking up a black shirt dress with drapes as the core of your outfit. Then you can add a structural grey or off-white leather jacket and a pair of wedge sneakers which will make the look cool and neutral. A pair of black leggings here would be a very simple way to link all the shades of black and white in this outfit. The last yet the most crucial step for you would be to accessorize it with your personal accent. A bright color envelope clutch along with our Archaic Crystal Cuff will brighten everything up!

Throwback Thursdays: The Lucite Trend

The Lucite trend was huge in the 90s and its still making a massive impact on the fashion industry today. If you’re wondering what Lucite is, it’s a transparent thermoplastic material that comes in many forms like plexiglass, windows and even instruments. The Lucite trend is quite unique and was once huge in the 1950s, returned in the 90s and is now hot again in 2013. Designers have flooded the runways and online stores with their adaptation of this fierce summer trend. The website, E & T Plastics, has a blog dedicated to vintage acrylic bags.

Le Chic offers many different Lucite evening bags!  Take a look below at a few of our styles along with some of our jewelry that we paired with four of our favorite dress trends!

Neon and neutral colors create an unexpected harmony when put them together and accessorized with our Beata Bag in Brown.
