Baby, It’s Cold Outside: Layer Up!

2:38 PM

Layers For those of you on the East Coast, we assume you're well aware of the recent temperature drop we've been experiencing. The weather has been crisp, cool, fresh and an all-around perfect fall season as of yet. If you haven't already done so, it's officially time to break out your layering pieces.

Oh, layering. Where do we even begin? We think of layering as a type of art. If done properly, you can look so effortless and chic like you quickly threw together this masterpiece of an outfit. Someone will always pay you that compliment of, “Oh my god you look so cute today!” and the response is generally, “Really?!! I just threw it on and ran out the door.”

Bottom line: once you know how to properly layer your garments the outcome will always be compliment-worthy. We put together four different layered-up outfits for daily situations all girls encounter.

Watch the video to see how we layer up! (more…)

Trends to Try for the Upcoming Winter Season

11:14 AM

Winter BluesThere are many people who are willing to look fashionable but are sometimes at a loss as to how to do this. For instance, most people often have a very difficult time figuring out what kind of clothes to wear during winter. For most, the fact that it’s very cold makes them go for functionality rather than form when shopping for winter clothes. This means that they sacrifice fashion just to be comfortable.

However, the fact of the matter is that you can get the best of both worlds if you are interested in it. There are a few fashion trends that are poised to be very popular during the winter and which still remain fashionable. Some of these include: (more…)

How to Wear the Trend: Camo

9:54 AM

In the past, most of us reserved camouflage for real, mean, hide-in-the-forest type bustle. And for the brave who rocked it, they infiltrated the military thrift stores and made their own anti-society fashion mark on the world, sometimes alone. We looked at them and thought, man they must be a tough cookie, because if they walk into a dark forest they might just disappear…and then what?

Those days are over. No one will think you’re GI-Woman come to life. But you can be — dare I say it — trendy. Top designers like Phillip Lim, DKNY, Equipment and even Manolo Blahnik have taken this otherwise brute feeling pattern and made it high-fashion and all over the streets of style. The colors are always neutral in nature, ranging from green to khaki, with subtle hints of grey. For the bolder, you’ll see movement into the reds and blues, the special forces of high fashion camo.

So now that you can buy it from SINGER22, how do you wear this pattern? It’s neutral in color and yet so bold in nature, which makes it hard for a lot of us to wrap our heads around how to make it good. Follow some key guidelines: (more…)

Summer Fashions that Transition into Fall

3:07 PM

We all want to get the most out of our wardrobe—especially if we paid for quality items. But as the summer sun fades to autumn’s greyer skies and orange leaves, you might find yourself forced to contemplate a shift in your wardrobe.

There are, of course, some things you’ll have to drop your hard-earned cash for like a leather jacket, perhaps. However, here are a few items you can get value out of even as the weather changes.  (more…)

Note to Self: Put On Your Big Girl Panties.

12:07 PM

Dear ladies (and some European men):

Pay attention. Recall your routine as you prepare for a typical day. Your hair, face, outfit, shoes and accessories are all on point. There’s one thing you forgot. It may seem petty, and maybe you didn’t know or maybe you thought no one would notice, but guess what…we noticed. We, the world behind you, are staring…talking about “it.” “It” is the dreaded VPL: Visible Panty Line. (more…)

Summer Prints and How to Stop Traffic

10:39 AM

Summer has officially arrived in New York City. Everyone is breaking out their shorts, breezy fabrics and flirty dresses. This summer is the summer of prints and brights. Loud, fun, obnoxious, novelty prints and bold, saturated colors. Prints of all kinds including florals, animal, skulls, paisley, preppy, you name it. I myself love bold abstract and tribal statement prints. It’s a great way to stand out in NYC.

New Yorkers are all in an unspoken competition to see who can stand out the most and make a statement. Life here is about celebrating individuality and having others notice and acknowledge it. But in a place where the competition and ambition are high, no one will notice you if you don’t give them a reason to.  Incorporating a colorful print into your outfit is a simple eye catching way to spark interest.  Check out the bright summer prints on these street stylers in Little Italy.

Rachel’s Radar: Distinguished by Denim

11:15 AM

Current/ElliottDenim has been an all time favorite from season to season. The big three denim brands used to be Levi’s, Lee and Wrangler. Now there are so many different and trendy brands such as J Brand, , Citizens of Humanity and Current/Elliott just to name a few.

Denim Denim became popular with the youth in the 1950s as a symbol of teenage rebellion, in movies such as The Wild One. Jeans were not the “good girl good boy” style back in the day. Currently called jeans, earlier known as dungarees, are a staple in everyone’s wardrobe. (more…)

My Cyber Monday Wishlist!

11:47 AM

Dresses

In my opinion, Cyber Monday is way better than Black Friday. I rather lay in my bed on my laptop and score awesome deals than wait outside on a freezing line for hours and risk not getting what I waited for. It's also just so much easier and convenient. Take 20% off your SINGER22 order today with code: CYBER and it ends tonight so hurry up and go fill that shopping bag!

I put together my wishlist for Cyber Monday that mostly consists of holiday/winter inspired pieces. Take a look below!

  1. BOULEE Avery Lace Dress in black: A girly dress with sheer lace sleeves, a full skirt and an open back.
  2. Parker Geometric Beaded Dress: The perfect holiday dress with a rich hue, beading and a dropped waist and draped skirt.
  3. Elizabeth and James Lisette Dress: Body-hugging long sleeve dress with a layered tulle skirt.

Swooning Over Sweaters

10:30 AM

Sweaters

I have a serious obsession with sweaters. I mean, honestly, you can never have enough. Sweaters are so comfortable and cozy, which makes them perfect for lazy/rainy days…and every other day. There are so many different kinds of sweaters from their fabric to stitching to pattern/color. If I could live in a chunky, oversized, warm  sweater for the rest of my life, I totally would. We carry so many stylish sweaters here at SINGER22 and I pretty much want every single one of them but I narrowed it down to a bunch I'd love to move into my closet.

  1. Generation Love Judi Zig Zag Long Sleeve Top – Its metallic hue is a shade of blue that mixes great with the black.
  2. Rag & Bone/JEAN Mesh Raglan in forest – Great for every day wear and it's super comfy.
  3. Minnie Rose Pow Wow Sweater in cobalt – Comes in tons of pretty colors and it's so soft. I'm also obsessed with the slouchy and oversized silhouette!
