Ready for Spring Already!

Can you believe it’s already March?!? It feels like just yesterday I was celebrating the New Year with my family and friends. There is one good thing about the beginning of March, though, and it’s that spring is just a few weeks away!!
You might think it’s silly to be thinking about dressing for spring already, but with the unseasonably warm winter we’ve been having lately it seems like we were all caught off guard this year.
So, now comes the question of how to dress for that in between weather. One moment you’re putting the “sweat” in sweater, and the next you’re reaching for a fluffy blanket to wrap yourself in. This morning was hailing and snowing and now the sun is out!
Lighter washes will also help your outfit look the “ready for spring” part. Like these DL jeans or our current obsession One Teaspoon Distressed Denim.

My solution has always been to layer up. Go for flowy-er shapes that let you wear t-shirts under and light jackets or a heavier cardigan over. It can be easy to cultivate a collection of sweaters that will work for all seasons! Focus on fit, color, fabric and weight.Lux Boutique-ShopLuxy-Distressed Pink Tee
Sweaters with lighter colors (winter white or light grey work well) will give your outfit a brighter, spring-ier feel to it. Since the temperature can still be a little cold at times, layer a scarf. I’ve been loving the oversized plaid scarf trend and wrapping it all messy, throwing on some aviators and I promise you won’t hear me complaining about spring coming a little early this year.Lux Boutique - ShopLuxy - Savannah Knit Top
Hope everyone has a fun weekend!

Easy No Brainer Dresses

There are days you feel like getting dressed and days you just don’t. On the days you’re into it, you pay close attention to the details: You try a new layering trick you saw on Instagram, add an accessory you haven’t worn in a while, or plan an entire outfit around a new pair of shoes. On the other days, when just leggings or boyfriend jeans requires too much thought — you grab a simple dress. So, the comfortable, looked like you tried, but really didn’t section of your closet is one that can always use a few more new comers.
You can’t go wrong in a tye-dye halter maxi. You can even forget your bra with this dress, the pattern hides any nipplege.  Hazel Maxi Dress, $46

Cozy Knits

These crisp temperatures call for an arsenal of sweaters; pullovers, cardigans, chunky knits and more… A Sunday stroll in a chunky oversized sweater. What could be sweeter? A knit that reveals, conceals, and whispers sex appeal. A boxy crop that’s equal parts sass and style, paired with sleek jeans or a high waisted pencil skirtMix Tape Black & Taupe Crop Top Sweater

Sweaters are so versatile, and can convey a plethora of looks from sexy and sweet to preppy and chic! And they can be worn all year as long as you do it right.

In the fall and winter, cozy up with a heavier knit. Try Lux’s Mica Chunky Knit Mocha Cardigan. It will keep you warm even on those icy cold days. Layering a printed button up collared shirt underneath will add style dimension to your ensemb… A solid color button up will give you that classic American girl look, add a chunky statement necklace for some edge.

In the spring and summer, store your heavier sweaters, but hang on to the lighter weight knits and cardigans for those cooler nights. Neutral shades like blush, peach, cream and tan will give you the most use. An oversized off the shoulder loose knit is perfect for watching the sunset on those long beach days.

Jeans

Jeans are worth putting a little extra money into, especially when finding the perfect fit. Whether it is skinny, straight, flare or boot cut, find the style that best suits your shape.

It’s great to have a dark wash for the fall and winter seasons and for spring and summer you’ll want a lighter or white wash.

We are obsessed with the DL1961 Emma Jean in Flatiron and Milk. It is safe to say that these skinnies are the most comfortable, best fitting and flatter every woman’s body type. Whether you have curves for days or a straight body shape these jeans form to every shape..and the fact that they’re so soft and comfortable you can sleep in them! Every girl should own a few pairs of DL1961 jeans!! 😉

Boot cut jeans are great for a business casual look in the office. With blouses or tailored blazers and pointed toed heels, you have an effortless fresh look.

The Little Black Dress, also known as the LBD…

The peak of elegance in any woman’s wardrobe is the Little Black Dress, the power of which suggests sexy sophistication. The very term “little black dress,” was established in 1926, in an American Vogue illustration of Gabrielle Chanel’s first black “Ford”. It has since become an image for cosmopolitan glamour. Flash forward about 89 years and LBD style has progressed to allow for individual choices and personal flair.

Our Lux Boutique Classic Black Bandage Dress is the perfect LBD for any occasion! The magic of our fabric acts as a built in Spanx to tighten and smooth comfortably. The end result is extremely flattering on all body types!

Happy Birthday Scorpio!

You are mysterious and strong willed and we want the secrets on how you show that through your wardrobe. The eighth sign of the zodiac; your greatest strength is your determination and motivation.

Scorpios are naturally seductive and slinky as well as being intensely passionate about all aspects of your life. When it comes to fashion, you know exactly how to draw the right about of attention and you are not afraid to show a little skin either!

Scorpios know how to flatter their silhouette with jersey and fitted styles but also integrating feminine silks and laces. Jewel tones like dark blues, reds, purples and blacks are the colors that describe you best. You also love to accent your style with statement accessories like an arm full of gold bracelets chandelier earrings.lava love turq

Scorpios love a little friendly competition regardless the environment. To show you’re game,  take a chance

with your professional look. We love tight midi length skirts this season. They are just long enough to wear

without tights and show off every curve. To avoid pushing the professional limits too far with this look, stick

to a black and white or neutral monochromatic color pallet.

You work extremely hard so on days off you can sit back and relax. Your casual look is easy and on trend with

the neutral grays. Always clean and crisp. Even though it’s time for the over-sized sweaters and ponchos, you

are sure to wear them with a fitted bottom tucked into your boots.
