We have a super stylish team here at ModCloth. (Being around all these cute clothes does start to rub off after all.) That’s why we thought it’d be fun to share what us peeps behind the brand are loving & wearing IRL. First stop? Austin, TX! I asked the lovely ladies who run our brick and mortar store all about their personal style and the trends they’re most excited about wearing. Get ready to want every. single. outfit.
What’s your style motto?
I have so many! I don’t think you can really capture style in one motto. My favorite one to live by is, there are no rules! Wear what you want and wear what feels great! My tried and true motto is no matter the occasion wear red lipstick. Red lipstick is my power piece—it makes any moment a little bolder.
We love this skinny pant on you! Any tips for someone wanting to rock the look?
I love these skinny high-waisted pedal pushers so much! These are such a classic piece you can easily add to any wardrobe. After having several kids, I love any pants that keep me all held in but also have a classic silhouette that is equal parts flirty, feminine, and modest. Perfect for a mom on the go that wants to be put together and also comfortable. My little trick about super high-waisted pants is wearing higher waisted undergarments so you don’t add a break to the silhouette.
P.S. What shade of red lipstick is that? It’s gorgeous!
I’m a Besame girl through and through and was just tickled pink when ModCloth started carrying their lipsticks. Red Velvet is the shade I am wearing and is also my all time favorite shade they carry, when in doubt wear red lipstick! Insider tip: swipe a layer of lipstick on then blot, swipe another layer then blot one more time! It will make the lipstick last all day!
What’s one thing you can’t leave the house without?
Can I pick two? I always need two special things when leaving the house. One, a bright RED lipstick! My current obsession is the Besame Cosmetics Victory Red to give me that retro glam look! Two, a classic denim jacket! I am constantly cold; even in the Austin sunshine! The denim jacket is a great go to outerwear that helps me express myself through pins and patches or dress down a special occasion dress I want to wear on any ordinary day!
Where would you rock this look? Brunch, dancing…everywhere?
Where wouldn’t I rock this look? I love the playful bird print and sheen on the skirt. Adding the red eyelet tie crop top makes this outfit feel even more perfect for spring! This look can take you from grocery shopping in the morning to mimosas with the crew and end the day twirling with your boo! It’s incredibly versatile!
What are you most excited about wearing this season?
I love a good romper! I am drawn to the unexpected playful prints combined with retro cuts. It makes going from a casual outing to a fun night out with the gals a snap!
The maxi is a major trend this season. What do you love most about this dress?
I am so on board with the maxi trend this season! I love the versatility of a maxi dress. The one I am wearing has a fun animal print and it is 100% cotton making it easy to transition from brunch with the ladies to a date night. You can even wear this maxi to a wedding—it’s all about how you accessorize it!
Where did you get your boots?! Are they vintage?
I got these cowboy boots as a birthday present about 7 years ago. My favorite part about them is the brown and white detailing, which helps them match pretty much my whole wardrobe. I have a rule of thumb in buying new clothes. If I can’t rock my cowboy boots with it that piece is not for me! Thank goodness this maxi matched them perfectly!
What’s one thing in the store you’re eyeing/thinking about rocking next?
I have my eyes on the new Wrangler collection we just released! I just bought the Wrangler Flared Finesse Jeans and am currently in the process of making them one of a kind by sewing on some local patches. I hope to continually add patches and stitching to these jeans to make them super special.
+Are you crushing on these ladies as hard as we are? What trends are YOU loving this spring?
