Finer Casual Things

Believe it or not, we still get first time customers in the store daily who tell us, "I've never come in here before because I thought you only carried special occasion wear!" and "I had no idea you had so many casual things!" I exclaim, "I am so glad you came in!" We do have casual things, but they are finer casual things!

LOVE AT FIRST TOUCH

The first requirement of being an article of clothing at Liberté is : Must Be Soft. Every touch is heaven on your fingertips and it seems to be never ending as you make your way though the store. Majestic has this new fabric that we have just gone nuts over- they call it "cupro" and its a step above their original soft touch tees. With an almost chalkboard finish, this tank will slip through your fingers like silk. Try the navy side tying tank over our spring infused hibiscus colored denim for new take on the tank and jeans look.

CASUALTIES

Don't let yourself fall prey to underdressed casual! Casual doesn't mean sloppy or unfinished. Take this opportunity with a basic outfit to glam up and rock your statement jewelry like this captivating knuckle ring. As if there were any other choice than to pair rose gold with this denim - it's just too perfect.

I love wide strapped tanks because they're nearly just sleeveless shirts, am I right? There are times when a strappy tank just doesn't feel appropriate, but wider straps give just enough coverage to be classified in the "top" category -especially when it sparkles!  This tank can be layered with sweaters or jackets as that something special... but wear it alone over a pair of blue jeans and you have a stylish look with a subtle glam effect.

DROPS OF DESIRE

You don't need everything. None of us do. First, who has a house big enough to fit all the things?? Women gaze into our jewelry cabinet at the shimmering baubles and typically zero in on a handful of favorites and settle on just the top two or three. First, why are we shopping? Is there a specific outfit we need to accessorize? Are we killing time? Or are we just in the mood for something new and exciting? Either way, we are here to help fill that void. What's your favorite way to shop?

EVERYONE HAS A DARK SIDE

Take a bright spring outfit and give it a twist with black accessories! The stones in these bracelets gleam deep from their darkness giving an edgy contrast to the carefree coral colored top. There are a few reasons why these bracelets are obsess worthy. First, they're super sparkly and look luxe BUT won't empty your bank account. Second, they're flexible, lightweight and comfortable to wear PLUS they don't have a clasp, so no more struggling and twisting and of course, swearing, trying to get that ity bity lobster claw opened and then hooked onto the tiny "o" that keeps slipping around your wrist-that bastard- purposely avoiding the lobster claw clasp. #thestruggleisreal and yes it's worth it sometimes, but with a sigh of relief, reach for your new studded bangles and shine brighter and happier!

OH THE PLACES YOU'LL GO!

Your days just got a lot more shimmery with Majestic's new collection of "metallic copper milk" Oh the places you'll go in this beauty! This bum covering length gives you the option of wearing it tunic style with leggings or over jeans with a front tuck. The relaxed fit ensures optimal drape where you want it, with less unwanted cling for a pretty flowy look this summer.

I'M IN LOVE WITH THE SHAPE OF YOUR FACE

We all know about dressing our body type with certain styles of clothes, but did you every thing about earrings and face shapes? Well, maybe you have and maybe you haven't but we want to talk about that today. If you have an oval shaped face... Lucky you! You can wear almost any shape, but triangular earrings will show off your lovely cheekbones best!

CORAL TANK

We generally think of energy as coming from food, (or more accurately caffeine). But, energy can come from so many places and you've probably noticed how different outfits can bring out different moods in you. Harness energy from your wardrobe with this dazzling sorbet tank and refuse to let it fade! This top has a silk front and a marled racer back, which we love because it's practical! Benefit from that beautiful silky finish where it really matters and get a cool effect with that more comfortable fabric back. Style doesn't have to be sacrifice- we're always looking for ways to look awesome and feel good too! Play on that contrast stitching with gunmetal jewelry for a flawless finish!

NOT SO SQUARE

Ladies with wide square jaws ( forehead and jawline are similar widths like our LIBERTÉ model) need to soften the hard edges of their face. To do this choose go for earrings that are medium to long with rounded edges. Oval shapes soften things up, and circular earrings and hoop earrings work well too. Stay away from square studs or any kind of earring with a square as it only reinforces the squareness.

RADIENCE 

Slim bangles are so radiant when they're stacked together! Mix and match these fine flexi and glitzy bracelets to add glam. It is no secret that we love bangles. Bangles make any outfit looks so much better whether it is in daily, work, casual, or formal occasions – and this is especially true when it comes to sparkle. Take your fashion game to the next level! However, just like any fashion trends, there are certain rules to stack bangles. For one, stack the bangles in the similar range of hue like we did here with the white and dark stones set in gunmetal.  One or two is classy and elegant, keep adding for a creative and funky look!

SHE'S MY CHERRY PIE

Banish the button down blues in this poppin' cherry blouse! Take a break from the crisp whites and throw some color into your life, and what better color than the happiest red we've ever seen? Fully saturated, this top is a siren for certain and looks all American when paired with distressed blue denim. And speaking of.... when has distressed denim NOT made something look better? Yeah, that's what we thought, too.

FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT DANGLES

Long drop or dangle earrings will elongate your face and make it look slimmer. If you have a round face, these beauties are for you! You should be avoiding large circular earrings, hoops and button studs which only emphasize the roundness. Don't go overboard with color- this earring has enough to last you the whole day so we paired it with a gunmetal necklace and fun flowered ring keeping the colors down.

PRETTIER PREPSTER

It seems like we always see street style fashion that makes us drool- but then we think...  “I could never pull that off. I'd never leave the house like that”. The secret is-  take cues from the bolder, cooler girls and figure out what you like about that look and then translate it into something you feel more comfortable running errands in.
You always want to still feel like "you" when you get dressed. Pairing navy and pink is a bold choice, but it's a polo and jeans- not a silk cami and tutu. So it's nothing wild or over the top but it still has that vibe of a bigger inspiration.

SNEAK PEEK

You can't have it just yet, but if you're loving this necklace as much as we are - good! This is a sneak peek design we will have in-store soon. We are terrible at keeping secrets and with something this beautiful, why should we? The brilliant colors are so happy against the rose gold setting and the design is unforgettable and unique. The only thing left to do is add a simple (in comparison) stud earring and finish it with a smile! 

IN BLOOM

This ring is so lovely and so different from anything else you have. It's more than just a ring because while it wraps around your finger, it also has a blooming flower that spreads it's petals and lays across two fingers. The pave set stones are the best kind of sparkle- they don't stand up obnoxiously but rather create a smooth seamless look which is utterly beautiful.

PLAY WITH PROPORTIONS

If you have a long, thin face choose earrings that emphasize the width of your face. Studs, clustered earrings, short dangles, hoops in a medium to large size. Any kind of round earrings will widen your face, and make it look fuller. These little jackets can help with proportions, but mostly we just think they're super adorable. They're the modern version of a drop earring, not quite dangle because there is no swinging, but they do hang out below the lobe and party there from time to time. We like to think of the little burst as a celebration. #cheers ! 

RAZZLE DAZZLE

Don't lose your desire to dazzle! When these bangles are so incredibly easy to add to any outfit, there's really no reason to skip the wrist decoration. Layer a few of these dainty little devils so they can catch and throw the light around.  We are enjoying watching everyone gush over them because we know how very special they really are!
