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
With Spring out in full force it is time to switch from the chunky sweaters, heavy coats and dark tones to a more lighter affair. However, with unpredictable Vancouver weather it can go from SUNNY and WARM one moment to CLOUDY and COLD the next. Keeping this in mind, it is a must that your outfit keep you warm but at the same time allow your body to breathe.
With this in mind, Holly has put together three in style, on trend outfits from our new shipments that are guaranteed to make you wish Spring (or Summer) could be all year round!
Nautical is always a hit when the weather warms up. However, the last thing you need is to end up looking like a little sailor going to sea. One definitely needs to keep it in moderation. We decided to pair a Nautical Striped Dolman Sleeve Hoodie (Michael Stars, $138) with a rough Thunderbird Pendant (LowLuv x Erin Wasson, $72) and completed the Spring look with a hyper bleached grey Skinny jean (7FAM, $235).
We at Holly appreciate a good blue, whether it be denim or dress, and this Spring we have two good blue tones that are perfect to pump out in Spring. Wearing a simple dress can be a bit too dressy for a casual hang out with the friends, but that doesn’t mean you can’t wear a fun dress when you have plans! Renegade against that notion! Our solution? We paired this stunning blue 100% Silk Halter Dress w. Caged Hem (Mike Gonzalez, $355), with a badass Bleached Blue Denim Jacket w. Leather Collar Trim (Twenty8Twelve, $268) to keep it real.
Sometimes it can be difficult to find the right thing to wear that is easy and effortless, something that you can just slip on and get on with it, or so you thought…A Maxi dress is a key piece to have on hand that is unfussy and easy to wear for any Spring occasion. Our pick is this airy, light-weight and beautiful tie dye Maxi that combines citrus, white and grey (Soft Joie, $160). The Maxi’s floor-grazing silhouette means no flashing the public when you sit down too, score! To kick this sexy piece up a notch and have you looking like a sun goddess, we styled this dress with a beautiful Gold plated feather necklace (House of Harlow, $189), Tribal Cuff (House of Harlow, $215) and some Boho Platform Heels (House of Harlow, $250).
Emmanuelle Chriqui (Entourage) was spotted rocking AG’s Angel Bootcut in 18 Years Damaged, which are available at Holly!
These are the perfect jean for the summer with its super cute faded stone wash and vintage whiskering, distressing and rips. It’s nice to see the there is more to denim then just the skinny fit.
Come stop by to see for yourself why AG jean’s are loved by so many, including myself!
This is the Outfit of The Week (OOTW)! Every week we will post a new outfit or item (Post of the Week, POTW) and suggestions on how to sport this look. As we are in the Spring season, the weather still has a tendency to be a bit chilly, so denim is still a good option. The light destroyed denim by Current Elliot ($228) is great for this weather paired with our M. Rena long sleeved off the shoulder top ($60).
This outfit is a great option for a first date, its still sexy and fun without being over the top. This also works for a ladies brunch at So.Cial and a shopping day in Gastown!
