Tip Tuesday – Embellished Accessories

Hello fans! As the holiday season is coming along, we find all sorts of embellishments starting to claim their presence in street styles. Today we are going to share fashion finds on some stunning details and introduce guides to our embellished accessories. With the ability to carry the look from day to night, these make the perfect investments.

The styling strategy here would be to keep your clothing simple, makeup subtle, and let your accessories do the talking. Like the example below, we are implementing the basic stripe top, white skirt and a wool cape as the ‘canvas’ for the gold floral embellished sunglasses and our Becca clutch. Putting on a pair of leather gloves, you will be ready to go to work. At  night, you can simply add a splash of hot pink to your lips for that extra accent.

If you are looking for more glamour, we would suggest adding some sparkle to one part of your outfit which should go along with the accessories. Below we matched a black skirt with gem embellishments with our Ursula clutch, Hellenic stretch bracelet and black faux suede pumps. At the end, a well-crafted fur coat will help you tie everything together to finish this lavish statement.

Tip Tuesday – Cozy Knitwears

In November, as the temperature gets crisper and the season merges from fall to winter, an array of cardigans, ponchos, turtlenecks, and more is in order. At Le Chic, it is easy for our fans to find these items featured in Nathalie Kraynina’s Fall/Winter 2013 Collection. This Tip Tuesday we are going to share hints about how to show off your style against the cold.

Below is an effortlessly chic style inspired by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. To get this look, we would suggest wearing Nathalie’s Chan Chan Sweater with a pair of black leather leggings and nude Gia ballet flats that speak to the tone of the sweater. You can keep the jewelries simple with our Everlasting Love necklace and White Crystal Stretch Bracelet while putting on a well-crafted felt hat to make the statement.

Another item that we have spotted in so many street styles is the long sleeve black sweater which you can also find in Nathalie’s Fall/Winter 2013 Collection. The Mystical Nazca Sweater with detachable hood allows you to wear it alone with the hood on or to move the hood and layer it on a shirt like the street style demonstrates below.  To add a little accent, we would finish this look with a pair of pointy toe booties and our Dainty Butterfly necklace.

Forecast Friday: Nathalie Kraynina’s Fall/Winter 2013 Debut

As spring is nearing, the fashion world is looking forward to next fall and winter. New York Fashion Week kicked off yesterday, February 7, and will continue through the 14th. Fall 2013 collections don’t stop showing then, though. Le Chic is excited to announce, Nathalie Kraynina will be showcasing her Fall/Winter 2013 collection on Friday, February 15. Her collection will be shown as part of Williamsburg Fashion Weekend’s 12th season in Brooklyn.

For Nathalie’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection she focused on reinventing black. She shared with us where her inspiration for her Fall/Winter 2013 collection came from:

“This season Nathalie Kraynina Fall/Winter 2013 collection is all about bringing South American traditions to New York. With warm colors and intellectual fabrics Nathalie Kraynina’s collection continues to attract the working woman. Faced with problems at work and in their personal lives, Nathalie Kraynina’s Fall/Winter 2013 collection reminds women they are warriors, just like Dona Morina also known as La Malinche, a South American warrior. With confidence and wisdom La Malinche helped with the conquest of Mexico, translating for Cortez allowing him to speak to the people. The inspiration of Nathalie Kraynina’s collection comes from the strength of La Malinche. Through this collection women can carry strength to get through the workday and personal struggles with what they wear.”

Williamsburg Fashion Weekend showcases 10 emerging designers and is open to the public to allow them to see close up the “future of fashion.” In Williamsburg’s press release they said, “The underlying power of the designers who show at WFW, is their love for what they do, where there is love there is integrity, and integrity is what we believe is sorely lacking in our field of endeavor.”
