THERE'S NO TIME LIKE THE PRESENT

STRIPES KNOW NO SEASON

Forget the notion that stripes are for summertime only - these stripes follow us from season to season! With long sleeves and a swing hem, this stripe tee is a year long print we can stand behind!

 

DREAM ON

We are wearing gunmetal. Isn’t it interesting how the exact same piece of jewelry has a totally different feel to it depending on the metal’s color? Gunmetal jewelry gives good contrast to the skin where maybe gold or rose gold blends in too much. We had a client in store today trying on different rose gold pieces, but her fair skin was so pink in tone that you would have really missed it, so she tried gunmetal and the results were so much more striking! Something to keep in mind when styling yourself!

 

THE FREEDOM OF STYLE

Among our most worn ensembles is the black top and distressed denim looks. It’s easy and super chic- plus this button down is 100% silk, so now it’s lux too! You don’t have to get bored in your favorite combinations when we are providing fun little twists to keep your style fresh and fun.

 

STRINGTHEORY

Maybe they weren’t referring to cashmere knit… but we are. The fall collection offers a flurry of details that make this sweater that much more special. Buttons down the sleeve make this one our new favorite! The neutral hue makes it easy to style and the medium weight will have you reaching for it most days from now until February!

 

NEUTRAL GROUND

Neutrals are another favorite season-less style. We wear the eff out of them all year long because they mix and match well plus, they require less commitment to the mood of the day. I’ve found myself waking up in the morning in the mood for a hot pink shirt, and halfway through the day I feel like an imposter. I ask myself, what was I thinking? Why am I wearing this? Moods change, attitudes change… usually about 20 times a day if you’re a double x chromosome. We’re not saying don’t wear color, but we are saying when you don’t want to commit - go neutral.

 

CAMO FOR GIRLS

Be brave, but not necessarily fearless… Brave women overcome their fear to accomplish mighty things. Fearless women just die doing stupid things. Sure this might strike a bit of a debate, but we can all agree that women should be encouraged to face their fears, be powerful and find a way through a situation and come out on the other side improved! This camo jacket is firm reminder that we aren’t helpless - we are amazing!

 

HUNTING SEASON

And a hunting we will go - for the perfect outerwear! You don’t have to be bound to boring old bombers - break free from the mold and choose something bold! Blanc Noir has designed a selection of of outerwear with features and details you can rock with confidence!

 

CAMO A LITTLE OR CAMO A LOT

Subtle camo print that’s tonal is a great way to add edge to the badassery deficit in the world. This jacket might camouflage some of your fashion flaws but it won’t hide your amazing sense of style!

 

#PURSUEPRETTY

What is Pursue Pretty? Anything soft, feminine, beautiful, colorful - this season’s moto jacket is all of those things and we feel perfectly entitled to use the hashtag here.

QUILTED FOR COMFORT

The worst thing about jacket season is the confinement. It always seems like such a hassle just to stay warm. The benefit of our favorite jackets is not just fashion but flexibility. The use of sheer panels between the leather sections breaks it up so the arms and shoulders get maximum range of motion.

 

HATE TO SEE YOU GO

But love to watch you leave… and this is all thanks to the back details here. Laced down and stitched up, we gasp when we see the back of this jacket. Hey I’m just a girl trying to live a good life and leave the world better than I found it.

 

SHORT OR TALL WE LOVE THEM ALL

It’s finally boot season and if we can rely on history to repeat itself, we know that all you ladies rushed to your closets and pulled out a variety of boots! Short or tall, we love them all! We find ourselves selling a lot of black jackets, and it could possibly be because the most popular color of boot is black so it’s easy to style.

 

LEATHER LOVERS UNITE

The fitted jacket can be one tough cookie. Especially the fitted #leatherjacket , right? Oversized jackets run the risk of causing unflattering lumps and bumps, plus unwanted weight. But fitted jackets make us cringe at the thought of claustrophobia and constriction. Luckily- here to save the day, is the zip moto jacket from Blanc Noir. The key to their designs is the panels of fabric between leather sections. Each time they pull this off we gasp with delight - it really never gets old!

 

THE GIFT OF WARMTH

With the onset of Winter just around the corner, so too does the extremes of weather and beauty. It makes us want to bundle up in this super cute reversible jacket from Blanc Noir. Finally a puffy coat we can covet for it’s cuteness! with a stretchy snug waist, you don’t have to sacrifice your girlish figure this winter.

ALL THE COLORS IN THE RAINBOW

Why choose one color when you can choose them all?! The big trend in jewelry that started earlier this year was and is going strong into this Holiday season is rainbow-stone jewelry! And the best part of this festive trend is that it complements the dainty jewelry pieces we know we're all so obsessed with!!

 

CATCH YOU ON THE FLIP SIDE

This jacket is the gift that just keeps on giving!! We love wearing it on the furry side out but it is oh, so cuddly when the fur is on the inside! Trendy dolman style has made its way into outerwear for a flash of fashion even in the cold.

 

ALL THE LITTLE DETAILS

I don’t know if your have heard… but we love the Gia Puffer Jacket from Blanc Noir! From being uber fashionable on one side to sleek and sporty on the other side, we were wondering if it could get any better, but we are totally loving this little corset detail on the back!

 

BLENDING FASHION & FUNCTION

Stay motivated this season in cute performance styles that work as hard as you do! We adore this silky soft top in this beautiful jewel tone color. We paired this athleisure style with our Commando leggings to keep this a #streetstyle look.

 

WHO ME?

The best way to trap in the heat is around the head and neck, so next time you’re feeling a chill - reach for something snuggly to stay warm. Matching cashmere accessories would be our top recommendation if you’re looking for an idea *wink* 

 

ADVENTURE AWAITS

Wrapped in warmth we set out to explore in our Commando leggings! There are few things Commando does that we don’t just love. Last year we promoted their amazing faux leather leggings and have continued to sell through stock of them in a variety of colors. Now, we introduce the fabric legging with a little gold zip to get you out and about in style! 

 

WARM FUZZIES

As the temperatures drop, wearing winter white gives us the warm fuzzies! ;)

 

BUNDLE UP

Stay toasty-warm in plush cashmere hats and scarves. We are dying to know… are you planning a winter getaway?

 

TRAVEL IN COMFORT

This time of year, all of our calendars fill up especially with travel plans, and we opt for comfort when en route! This cozy french terry hoodie is a fabulous layering piece that you can wear under a leather jacket or over a sweater. There are just so many options depending on where your travel plans take you!

 

WOVEN FOR WARMTH

Knit jackets - can you have too many? We vote no. Here’s the reason behind that. Some people tend to always be cold and are therefore always needing a jacket or sweater on hand. Who wants to be seen in the same jacket day after day? We are thinking *boring* so get your collection of cozy jackets that you can rotate through as a piece of your outfit rather than an afterthought and you’ll always be golden ! 

 

SHARE WHAT MATTERS

Wrap up, go outside and find your combination of nature, peace, cold, and sweat! Do what you love and share it with the ones you love. That’s what the holiday season is all about, right? Everyone becomes stronger when you share what matters most.

 

BLACK IS MY FAVORITE COLOR

Strong, seductive, mysterious, and timeless. Black is more than a color - it’s the ultimate signal of style. This is the perfect time of year to let your outerwear shine!

 

LET ME COUNT THE WAYS

How do I love thee? Well, how much time do you have? Because this could take a while! Fabric, fit, design and visual lines for starters. Would a price that’s not going to have you splitting the charge up between several credit cards be too much to ask? Not at all. This gem, like all Blanc Noir outerwear, is spicy but not pricey!  

 

FINISHING TOUCHES

This season’s best trimmings aren’t for the tree at all…  fortunately for us, they’re for you and me, and much more flaunt-able! Seam details like these have a visually slimming effect on the otherwise basic grey denim. Here at LIBERTE, we prefer our denim to have subtly interesting details that are stylish for everyone from a trendy girl to a sophisticated woman. 

 

GOING ON HOLIDAY?

From the slopes to the chalet, we adore this sport chic apres-ski tunic from Karolina Zmarlak (we promise, we won’t tell if you decide to skip the ski part - lol).

 

MADE IN NYC, MADE FOR THE WORLD

Some of our favorite travel pieces are Karolina Zmarlak creations. She crafts highly functional, wearable beyond belief, and perfectly practical - all while being seriously stylish. This bonded cotton blend tunic is reversible from white to grey, and back again!

OOPS WE DID IT AGAIN

That’s right, we found the perfect pair of earrings to match! Multi tonal metals made it a breeze, but we’ll still take full credit for the remarkable end result!

THE RIGHT TO NEARLY BARE ARMS

Skeptics step aside! There is no doubt this raglan top is going to be a top choice this season! If you feel somewhat uncomfortable baring your arms, a sheer sleeve can work beautifully without feeling overexposed. We love the come-hither appeal of sheer clothing!

 

STARRY STARRY NIGHT

While we’ve seen polka dots pop up in fashion recently, we haven’t really jumped on that bandwagon yet. Our version is the starry print of this button up shirt. Modernized and close but not quite on the nose, we are still steering clear of classic polka dots. For now. Of course, this would makes it’s way into the office as a blouse, but we love a dressy casual outfit of jeans and a really nice top.

 

PENGUIN TAILS

Penguin tails give the rear view a little love. Why get by with a boring old shirttail when you can get have some fun with it? While we have your attention, take a closer look at the netted sleeves - an additional edgy detail that we just love.

 

EARTHY FEELS

As if you needed a reason to buy another leather piece, we have a really compelling argument here! You don’t have one like this - satin lambskin is like butter to the touch, he earthy tone is perfect for fall and winter, and the design is superiorly stylish. Wrap and tie the belt for a flattering cape look!

 

WHY DO DOLMAN?

Dolman style is one of the most highly sought after silhouettes right now. Everyone wants to own one, or many. They have been around a while but that doesn’t stop us from wearing the improved incarnation 25 years later. The right dolman sleeve top is more flattering and forgiving than you might expect. Surprisingly, a dolman sleeve top can soften a strong shoulder line as well as strengthen a weaker one. So the shape works equally well for inverted triangles and pear shaped body types. Petites should watch the excess volume under the arm, but should by no means stay away. A more streamlined version of a dolman sleeve top will not swallow you up.


 

THE SECRET IS OUT

The secret of this dolman top is the soft fabric. Drapey light satin plisse knit like this is ideal because the fabric collapses close to the body. Dolman sleeves in chunky knits on the other hand, are harder to wear and almost impossible to layer under a coat. The excess fabric under the arm is what makes this style unique. If you’re petite, full busted or strong shouldered, this top is great because the volume is fairly subtle. Sleeves that taper at the hems are often more flattering because it structures the volume. Scrunch up the sleeves for textural outfit interest. Similarly, a tapered hem at the waist will balance out the excess fabric of the top and “ground the style” so to speak.
