Ripped Denim Do’s

 

Image

Ripped denim is so in right now. Everywhere you look, everyone’s sporting holey jeans, acid wash jackets, and frayed denim vests. Besides from being your most versatile items, ripped denim just oozes cool. So tap into your inner badass/coolgirl vibes and wear yours today!

This combines two of the biggest denim trends this spring/summer: boyfriend jeans and rips, rips and more rips. Boyfriend jeans are one of those things you have to try and will immediately fall in love with. They’re sweat-pant-comfortable, but on trend and acceptable dressed up or dressed down. Pair with a blazer and wedges to make a cleaner polished look.

Denim vests are so versatile, and give another denim option besides a jean jacket in your arsenal. Easy to throw over a long t-shirt or sweater to make a layered affect, such as what Kennedy is wearing here. Paired with a comfortable but cute pair of Sam Edelman ballet flats.

Denim shorts can easily replace your jeans for nights out, but are better balanced with a flowy top – not paired with a tight top (too much tight-fitting clothing can quickly become a bad thing!). This bright pink provides enough pop on it’s own, so pair down with a neutral wedge and neutral jewels.

These boyfriend jeans are similar in fit and comfort as the pair posted above… however they’re in that nice light spring colour everyone is craving this season. Paired down with a girly, graphic Lauren Moshi tee, and white-bottom sneakers.

Neutral Territory

Image

Spring is known for being the season to unveil your brights, which is true, but we’re also all about embracing a palette of pale greys, baby pinks, and soft beige. These shades are appropriate all spring and summer long, so tear yourself away from the safe black and white combos and embrace your neutrals this season!

Everyone owns denim shorts. Transform yours into a dressier outfit complete with a crop jacket and tear-drop necklace. This pale pink jacket is also convenient to throw on with pretty well anything to keep warm on those cooler summer nights.

This Theory dress can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion. The cinched waist is also a flattering detail on every body type!

An animal print dress is a must-have in every woman’s arsenal, but change it up from cheetah print to snake skin! Bailey dresses feel like pyjamas but are sure to be an eye catching piece for any occasion.

These pieces are a nice alternative to bright and bold cuts and colours which we have seen a lot of this spring. These dainty creations in light colours go with most anything!

How-to: Spring Maxis

Image

Amen for maxi dresses. They’re comfortable, dressy or casual, and allow you to prolong not-shaving your legs for another day or two. This spring we’re embracing the maxi-trend, as they make a return this spring in beach-inspired patterns and colours. Whether you’re enjoying a beach vacation, are attending a wedding, or are hitting up the grocery store, we’re sure the maxi dress will be a reliable piece to throw on!

This beautiful tie-dyed number begs for sand and waves. Dress this maxi up with layered gold accessories to give a boho-vibe. Maxis pair perfectly with wedges to give an elongated look, while also being very easy and comfortable to walk in. These Michael Kors wedges are a summer staple for our store every year – we swear by them!

For a more casual maxi dress look, opt for a simpler colour or pattern, such as this cotton dress, paired with a cropped denim jacket. Wood accessories are a staple for summer, and are a unique option to thrown on for day-to-day, rather than your usual gold or silver accessories.

This water-colour-inspired dress is ideal for spring and summer weddings. The beauty of maxi dresses is that due to their length, they can be matched with several footwear choices (as pictured here, metallic wedges, neutral colours, or flats).

Timeless Stripes

Image

Our favourite timeless pattern? Yeah, you guessed it… shop stripes with Who Cares? Wear. This always classic cool-girl pattern begs for a denim crop jacket and colourful sneakers. The sailor vibe is back again this spring, and is here to stay!

Current Obsession: PJ Salvage!

We are currently obsessed with the brand PJ Salvage! Their pajamas are incredibly soft, come in a variety of sizes, and are adorable to boot! A PJ set makes for an excellent gift for a friend!

Pastel Pinspiration

Image

As an avid blog and Pinterest navigator, it has become apparent that pastels are going to explode this spring. Baby blues, pale pinks, and soft violets are making an appearance in many runway shows, posts, and blogs as of late! Here are a few of our favourite finds from Pinterest, along with some of our pieces in store in order to add a pop of pastel to your wardrobe this spring!

Image

{Bailey 44}

This beautiful black and mint lace dress fits comfortably, and gives a nice silhouette with the divide of black and mint. This dress is both office appropriate, and with a pair of wedges, is good for any patio weather (hopefully sooner rather than later!)

Image

{Bailey 44, Britta}

This lovely lavender number hits below the knee to give a nice long and lean affect. Pair down with neutral heels, or amp up with a contrasting coloured pump!

Image

{White & Warren, James Perse, Jocelyn Kennedy, Hoss}

Pale yellow pairs excellently with neutral colours, and provides a nice backdrop for a bright pop of colour.

This sweater is so soft, and can be thrown on to polish up a classic ‘jeans and t-shirt’ look.

 

See you soon ladies!

Bigger, Badder, Better

Ever since Alexander McQueen’s iconic skull-print scarves became popular, the fashion world has started to embrace skulls, pleather, and pretty well any bad-girl touches in clothing. This spring leather and skulls are back and bigger (and badder?) than ever.

Image

{Jocelyn Kennedy, A&E Inspired}

This jewelry is a way to add an edge to any outfit, whether layering up on studded necklaces, or just on a pair of spike-drop earrings.

{Bella Beads}

The skull trend taking a girlier turn in bright pinks, pale greens, and feminine neutrals.

{Theory, Skull Cashmere, Jocelyn Kennedy}

These linen skull tanks and long sleeves are a nice piece which is easily incorporated into your summer wardrobe due to it’s breathable material!

Image

{Generation Love, Lauren Moshi}

These Lauren Moshi sweaters are a nice alternative to your every-day baggy sweater due to their cute graphics – perfect to layer under a leather or denim jacket.

*subtle* Valentine’s Day hints!

Happy almost-Valentine’s Day ladies! We all know that our significant others need the occasional assistance when it comes to buying presents… so I am making this post so that you can leave it casually open on your browser in hopes that they will ‘accidentally’ trip over this. With that being said, if you’re a single lady (then lets all sing and dance to this), theres nothing wrong with you treating yourself to a present from Who Cares!

Image

These are our Hanky Panky underwear, and they are amaaaaaaazing. One size fits all, and none of those feared panty-lines. Try them once and you’ll become a die-hard fan too.

Image

These are a few of our jewels from Jocelyn Kennedy and Britta. These pinks are neutral enough to wear with casual outfits, while still adding that hit of sparkle for a night out on the town. Plus anything that’s pink is a Valentine’s Day-do. 

Image

These are beautiful clutches by House of Harlow 1960 which always feature interesting clasps. These are the perfect date-night clutch… with enough room for an iPhone and a lipstick!

Image

These are some of our Barefoot Venus products. They smell like coconut-summer-goodness, and come in these cute tins to display on your bathroom shelf!

Image

No date-night outfit is complete without a knockout pair of heels. These matte pumps are a nice alternative to patent heels!

Image

If you’re feeling particularly festive, this Alice and Olivia heart-patterned top is sure to be a hit on the 14th!

Happy Valentine’s Day! See you soon! XOXO
