Whowhatwear’s feature article today was on cropped sweatwers! Lucky for you, we got your crop sweater fix at Holly with our new line, 525 America! The pieces we have from the collection are very on trend with Whowhatwear’s article. Chunky Knits, Cropped Silhouettes and Super Soft fabrics make this a win in our fashion books! Stop by Holly today to “Get The Look”.
Our fashion go to, WHOWHATWEAR, featured Polka Dot pants as their hot topic and we couldn’t be more excited!
“Over the years, polka dots have ingrained themselves into the fashion consciousness. Who can forget Lucille Ball’s polka-dot dresses on I Love Lucy, or the lyrics to Brian Hyland’s catchy 1960 hit “Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini”? The famous spotted pattern, equal parts classic and girly, can be intimidating to wear, but for our solid-wearing readers, we’ve found a loophole that we’re happy to share in today’s Get The Look. The retro motif takes on a modern tomboy twist when it’s covering a cropped, tailored trouser. Styled with sharp menswear pieces like jackets and oxford shirts, this trend really hits the spot!”
Lucky for you, we have just right pair at Holly! The Current/Elliott Pin dot Ankle Skinny ($215) is 2 parts on trend and 1 part PERFECT!
WhoWhatWear recommends pairing Polka Dot pants with menswear pieces. To help you achieve this look we recommend the following to flawlessly execute this trend:
1. Plastic Island Gemma Blazer, $175
2. Fluxus Wales Tank, $88
3. Seychelles Blue Skies Heels, $145
A blouse is an essential piece in every girls wardrobe and here at Holly we definitely make it a point to offer a variety of blouses to satisfy every occasion that you have going on. For the “warmer” season our essential must have from Holly is the Aristotle Blouse from Rebecca Taylor. Soft and romantic with Rebecca Taylor’s beautiful Aristotle floral print and prettily detailed, with pintuck trims and tassle ties along the neckline using a light weight silk material, comfy luxe is what this blouse is about. We love a piece that can be worn a number of ways, here are 4 ways that we recommend:
Based out of Southern California, Joie is a brand for the modern woman. “Casual, comfortable and luxurious” is the brand’s concept and boy, do they deliver. A mix of sophisticated elegance interspersed with a vintage luxe feel is what makes the brand fresh and timeless.
With a strong focus on creating quality garments, the main Joie line incorporates natural fabrics like silk, cotton and linen. Each piece is decadent in the texture and weight of the fabrics used. The sister line Soft Joie is a worthy counterpart, utilizing soft knits and drapes that is as comfy chic as Joie is sophisticatedly elegant.

There is always so much stress and pressure when it comes to finding the right New Years Eve outfit! So let me make it easier with my suggestions!
This is the essential piece to have s the party dress to have with its femine and fun sequins! The Skipper dress is perfect and sexy for any New Years Eve or Xmas Party.
To top off the dress and overall outfit, I recommend adding some fun color with this great statement piece for the Fall Winter seasons from Les Petites. The rich wool fabric keeps you warm and gives the fun party dress a hit of glamour.
Sexy shoes are perfect for your night out, so I recommend the Rosegold Lane Heels. The on-trend style features an upper with sexy cut-outs and a peep-toe. With a concealed platform and a covered stiletto heel, you’ll have a noticeable lift without crossing the line.
Keep the jewelry minimal as you don’t want to take away from the fabulous dress. I suggest going with a Textured Ring and the Horseshoe Bangle. Simple, Easy and it won’t break budget!
I recommend tousled flirty hair that is down which provides a sexy look to when you’re partying the night away!
Who What Wear’s “How They Wear” feature was on Rocker Fringe and we couldn’t be happier to show off our Wildfox Festival “Backstage Pass” Fringe tee! Could this top be anymore on point?
“When considering the counterculture uniform of the ’60s, there’s one specific element that immediately comes to mind: fringe! That’s right, this frayed embellishment played a major role in some of the most iconic musicians’ wardrobes, like Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin, whom both paired fringed jackets with bell bottoms and tie-dye. Now, thanks to designers like Isabel Marant and a handful of fashion’s finest, fringe is having a serious moment again. Adorning everything from outerwear (Chanel Iman and Ruby Aldridge) to accessories (Ashley Olsen and Kate Moss), fringe is the perfect way to inject your day-to-day looks with a little rock ‘n’ roll spirit. To help you create some of the coolest outfits this winter, we’ve rounded up a selection of stylephiles who have all nailed this look in today’s How They Wear story.“ (Full Article @ Who What Wear)
