Spring Trends: Colors

Even though it’s only mid-January, we are so ready for spring and a little more sun and warm weather! As we’re looking forward to the transition from winter, we’re thinking about all the spring trends that are going to be hitting our stores and wanted to give our lovely readers a sneak peek into what we’ll be carrying after next week. As the first part of our 4 post series, we wanted to highlight some of the colors that we love for spring 2018.

Pastels

First up: Pastels! Spring definitely brings to mind light, wistful colors and these two tops are definitely among our favorites for pastel pinks. The first is the Hard Tail Skinny Tee in Crystal that fits like a glove and is so cozy underneath the Mod Ref Delilah Cardigan.  And guess what: The Hard Tail tee comes in 5 other gorgeous shades! It’s just thick enough to keep you warm on walks through your favorite park or curled up on the couch with a good book. We also loved the Mod Ref Ref Top in Dusty Rose that’s perfect for the office with these Fifteen Twenty Ankle Slit pants in navy.

Jewel-Tones

If you’re not into the softer pastels and want something with a little more pop, we are all about jewel-tones for spring. The details of The Odells’ Shift Dress in Sapphire will have you melting as the curved hem with frayed edge and side-seam pockets keep you looking relaxed and stylish. And, of course, you can never have too many sweaters. I fell in love with the Soaked in Luxury Gertrude V-Neck in Cabernet which is perfect for spoiling yourself for spring. It’s slightly oversized with a loose fit so it pairs perfectly with these McGuire Lou Lou pants.

Stripes

First off, major shout out to Mod Ref for making it into two of the three color picks for this rundown; their pieces are just so easy to style. Our last color trend is less of a color and is really a pattern: stripes! We loved the Mod Ref Cole Dress in stripes (which also happens to have pockets!!) and, honestly, every woman should have a shirt-dress that also doubles as a tunic over jeans or leggings on those chilly days. Finally, we have this Rails Taylor Button-down in Florence Stripes, punctuated by a feminine floral print. We layered it on top of a basic Current/Elliott V-neck in Black Beauty to leave it unbuttoned and loose.

Let us know what some of your favorite colors for spring are and head over to our Fremont and West End locations next week to try out some of ours! Check back on Saturday for the second blog post in the Spring Trends Series on some of our favorite styles for spring.

Happy Thursday!

The Blank NYC Suede Jacket comes in three gorgeous colors (Dark Chocolate, Silver Screen, Red My Mind) and pairs well with just about everything from jeans and joggers to your favorite dress. We love the zippered detailing and assorted pockets that make this moto jacket the perfect layering piece. Originally these jackets were priced at $198, and are now $138.60!

If you’re looking for a glamorous blouse that can compliment any outfit, whether you pair it with jeans or a skirt, then you need the Storm & Marie Sense Shirt.  It is absolutely gorgeous and the shimmery, sheer fabric catches the eye without taking away from any jewelry or accessories you pair with it.

Or go for a pair of Mother jeans styled here with an Emerson Fry coat and our Philanthropy long-sleeve Bandit top. We love the pop of pattern the Emerson Fry coat gives this look and is a great transition piece from winter into spring! The Emerson Fry coat is now $229.60, down from $328 and the Bandit tops are $82.60 instead of $118!

9 Year Anniversary Party on Fremont!

Wow! 9 years since we opened our very first location on Fremont… These last 9 years have been such a rollercoaster of ups and downs and our Anniversary party reminded us of how lucky we are to have constantly had the support of so many wonderful friends! This was such a fun night of celebrating all the hard work that has gone into this store and you guys make it all possible!

If you missed our Anniversary party, here are some of the highlights:

The photo booth was a huge hit and it was filled with so much love that night!

Shout out to New Deal Distillery for providing Ethan with everything he needed to serve up some delicious cocktails! They were a hit!

And so were all the delicious appetizers! They were basically just as pretty as the jewelry they sat next to…

Oh, and did we mention there was a raffle? We didn’t raffle off one, but FOUR beautiful pieces at the party!

Congrats to all the lucky winners on scoring these pieces from LACAUSA and Just Female!

Although everyone was looking quite fabulous (see below), Ambrosia, from Auric Salon, was there to finish the job and make sure we all had the perfect braids for the upcoming weekend! Everyone walked away loving their new locks!

Seriously, we are obsessed! Aren’t these gorgeous???

And, don’t worry, we didn’t forget about the shopping! The first 15 customers to spend $150 walked away with some awesome goodie bags that night!

All of our stylists had so much fun making sure everyone went home with the perfect pieces to add to their wardrobe!

Speaking of stylists, here is to the wonderful friends who have been with us since the beginning and the ones who help our team continue to grow!

This journey would not be possible without all of the amazing people that have helped Adorn be what it is today! Whether you are a customer or a stylist, no matter your role, you guys are all family and we’re so happy you’ve shared this journey with us!

Thank you to all who made it out to celebrate with us! Cheers to 9 years and here’s to at least 9 more!

Special thanks to Shauna Dullanty Photography for all the amazing shots!

Employee of the Week: Jazz

Jazz

Garden Curator and Stylist

How long have you been working here? 

I started here at Adorn’s West End location last November.

What inspires your personal style the most? 

My personal style is mostly inspired by my desire to be individual. I love that we carry so many different vendors so we can all express ourselves differently through our clothing choice.

What is your favorite part about working with Adorn? 

All the amazing gals I get to work along side with! It’s my second family here.

What is your favorite brand carried by Adorn? Why? 

Rails is my favorite brand. They have such high quality pieces that are simple yet different from anything else you typically see and every new Rails piece we get in, fits into my style perfectly!

What is your favorite current trend? How would you style it? 

I’m currently obsessed with Statement Stripes. Whether you’re going on a date in an awesome striped dress or just need to throw on a striped button-up, over your favorite tee shirt and take it easy, you’ll be styling’.

Which designer inspires you the most? 

I’m going to have to go with the classic Coco Chanel. Her designs were revolutionary for the time and I think we are always in need of designers that are always trying to change things, update things, and make them better.

What fashion advice do you have for this upcoming season? 

Push your boundaries! It doesn’t matter if it’s not something you would normally wear, try everything on. Don’t be scared to stand out a little bit.

What is your favorite item you have ever purchased from Adorn? 

My Citizens of Humanity Cara High Rise Denim in Ankara Wash is by far my favorite pair of jeans I have ever owned. They fit perfectly and have a slightly vintage look to them. I wear them way too often and just about everywhere. I pair them with a tee shirt and sneakers for running errands, with pumps and a silk-y blouse for happy hour out, or sandals and a sweater for a quick day trip to the beach with the dog.

Employee of the Week: Rachel

Rachel Reposar

Events Coordinator and Stylist

How long have you been working here?

One glorious month!

What inspires your personal style the most?

My experiences! I grew up in salons and have been working in the hair and beauty industry for 12 years. After turning 30 this year I really started to embrace what works on my body type and more importantly what makes me feel amazing. I’m a creature of habit and tend to gravitate towards what I know works.

What is your favorite part about working with Adorn?

The team of strong, capable, fashionable women. We have fun! Not to mention the clothes are to die for and the customers are rad.

What is your favorite brand carried by Adorn?

The Odells make really special pieces. I love when I put a dress on and I don’t want to take it off. Halston is a no-brainer, too.

What fashion advice do you have for this upcoming season?

Don’t shy away from color! It brings life to your face, it brightens and uplifts your mood, and it makes you unforgettable. I’m over black and grey all the time, switch it up.

What is your favorite item you have ever purchased from Adorn? 

All of my jewelry- it makes me happy to top off an outfit with a killer accessory.

Employee of the Week: Stephanie

Stephanie Christy

Store Manager of West End

What inspires your personal style the most?

I love celebrity style, so scrolling through my Instagram feed before bed is what inspires me. Also, window shopping from time to time, to get a feel for what the current trends are and how I can put outfits together of what I already own.

What is your favorite part about working with Adorn?

All of the employee‘s! and Nicole :)

What is your favorite brand carried by Adorn? Why?

As of now, I would say Hard Tail is my favorite brand since that is what I’ve purchased the most. I’m a sucker for a black bodycon dress, cant have enough!

What is your favorite current trend? How would you style it?

I’ve always been into the edgy/grungy style (distressed denim and t shirts, leather, black, etc). One of my favorite looks is a pair of distressed denim put together with a white v neck and a blazer- trendy, cute, and edgy.

Which designer inspires you the most?

There is no specific designer that inspires me. If I like what I see, I am not worried about who designed it!
