Style Tips for the Modernshopgirl: Cardigans

Cardigans are making a comeback and they are not just for grandpas anymore! With so many new styles and colors, it was hard to decide which looks to style. But we powered through and decided on 3 simple ways to style this essential layering piece for any wardrobe. Check it out.

1 – Leave it to Free People to come up the latest and greatest version of the cardigan. This hi-lo style in vibrant yellow may seem difficult to style at first but just focus on proportion. We paired it with Hudson’s Hampton short and a Michael Stars striped boat neck. Keep your accessories simple and neutral like a straw fedora, long beaded necklace and neutral belt.

#2 – Pick a pattern! Soon as we opened the box this Splendid open cardigan with tiny zig zag weave jumped out at us. The oatmeal and grey color are perfectly paired with Rich & Skinny’s Legacy skinny in Monarch. We kept the laying simple with a Michael Stars grey camisole. Finish the look with Nashelle’s Identity necklace and Dogeared’s new Mantra necklace.

#3 – Tie it on with a maxi dress! Maxi dresses are here to stay so why not find new ways to style them? Again, we snagged Splendid‘s open solid cardigan and did a loose waist knot with this Ella Moss maxi. The white cardigan keeps the look clean and put together. Make the colors pop with a simple turquoise necklace.

Style Tips for the Modernshopgirl: Loungewear

Gone are the days of Mad Men when a woman would never leave the house in her casual “house” clothes. We love comfy style whether we are running errands or lounging away a lazy Sunday. But thanks to brands like Michael Stars, Splendid, Peace Love World and PJ Salvage you no longer have to sacrifice comfort for cute-ness. Check out our tips for looking stylish in your loungewear.

#1 – Keep is bright! No need to go dull and drab. We adore Michael Stars comfy sweat pants in bright blue. We paired it with Chaser’s cross stitch sweatshirt to add some print and pull the colors together. Layer with a Michael Stars tank for added comfort and color.

#2 – Make a statement! Easy to do with Peace Love World’s I Am collection. We are grateful for their chic and stylish loungewear in super soft fleece. Splendid‘s printed lounge short accentuates the legs and balances the slouchy sweatshirt. Through on a pair of Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars for running errands.

#3 – Loungewear does not mean your man’s tee shirt! Style it up in Michael Stars short sleeve dolman and this cropped cotton pant by PJ Salvage. You will be ready for a movie night with the girls or just catching up on your favorite shows.

Style Tips for the Modernshopgirl: Tribal Print

Tribal print is everywhere this spring/summer season and here at Modernshopgirl we are no exception. We love the fresh patterns and new color combos.There are so many fun ways to wear this trend; here are some tips to embrace the your inner indian princess without the feather headdress.

#1 – Keep the print small if you are daring enough to try Lucky Brand’s head to toe tribal print dress. The small geometric patterns and darker colors keep the look simple but chic. Add sleek and modern jewelry like Dogeared’s long Karma necklace and silver bangles. An easy earthy tote completes the look.

#2 – You don’t have to match, just compliment. We paired Free People’s tribal print skinny with a Michael Stars navy tank and Lucky Brand’s lace trim cardigan in oatmeal. The tank brings out the dusty blue in the pants and the cardi gives the look a relaxed vibe.

#3 – Add a neutrals! Ella Moss’s tribal print cold shoulder top has flare to spare. Rich & Skinny‘s Coronado crop in sand keep the look simple and keeps the focus on the print. Again we went with sleek modern jewelry. A gold cuff and layered chains are the perfect pair.

Style Tips for the Modernshopgirl: Stripes

Stripes have gotten a bad reputation. The old adage that you can only wear stripes vertical and not horizontal is no longer true. Stripes are for everyone! Today we are showing you the many ways you can wear stripes. It is all about how wide they are and the style you are wearing. So break free from your striped prison and enjoy all the darling styles of stripes this spring!

#1 – Stripes with a twist! We adore Bailey 44‘s striped bandage top. With uniform stripes in black and white, a body skimming style, and open back this top has tons of character and style. Pair it with colored denim for a slimming and unexpected pop! Keep your accessories simple and bold, like Joia’s red vegan leather bag. 

#2 – Vertical pin stripes are still slimming and flattering in this short by Rich & Skinny. A skinny stripe worn on the bottom gives the illusion of slimmer hips. Again, go for color like Chaser‘s hot pink cold shoulder tee, also available in white and grey. Style up this look with a saucy fedora, woven belt, and layered bracelets.

#3 – The easiest way to wear stripes? Michael Stars maxi dress does all the styling for you! We loved the perfectly placed different widths of these stripes and the rope belt adds extra style and definition to your waist. Coordinate accessories like we did with Chan Luu‘s turquoise wrap bracelet and Joia’s vegan leather tote.
