Weekend Wednesday: Where to Shop for “Tough Girl Chic” Clothes

where to shop for tough girl chic clothingI have some mom friends who are really (really) into Lilly Pulitzer and Vineyard Vines type of preppiness — and I thought it might be fun to round up different stores selling “weekend vibe” clothes in different personalities for our ongoing Weekend Wednesdays series. After all, we’ve talked in the past about the weekend you vs. the weekday you — as well as sharing our best tips for upgrading your weekend clothes and cultivating style in general. I tend to associate Lily et al. with the summer months, so we’ll save preppy weekend looks for next spring — and instead let’s start with the weekend vibe of tough girl chic, which has always been one of my preferred options,

Let’s back up a bit, though: As a reminder, there was an old style book I had where the author (CNN style commentator Elsa Klensch) talked about how “[m]any successful businesswomen I know tap into their private visions of themselves and express that inner being in their weekend wear. … On weekends, I want to be softer, more romantic. My fantasy in the summer is to look as though I just stepped out of an F. Scott Fitzgerald novel wearing Gatsby-style long skirts and gently flowing chiffon scarves.”

So I’ve always had the idea that a bit of separation of your professional and private self is necessary, even healthy as a boundary ritual. “Tough girl chic” (a flawed term, to be sure, but I’m not quite sure what else to call it) has always been one of my preferred weekend vibes, primarily for comfort/ease/flattering but with an edge. The big pros for me are a lot of flat boots and denim, a lot of black (making for an easy capsule wardrobe), a non-fussy aesthetic (perfect for someone who avoids ironing like the plague and is happy when her jeans get new rips), and easy upgrading with concert t-shirts and things like that. Score!

There are a few brands who I think of as selling great tough girl chic clothes if you want to move away from jeans, boots, and graphic tees, so I thought it would be fun to explore some great stores selling “tough girl chic” clothing today.

Readers, do you have a distinct “weekend personality”? Do you like the vibes of tough girl chic or rocker chic — and if so, where do you shop and what do you buy to bring your vision to life?

Swiss Alps: old huts to chic chalets

Surrounded by Alpine peaks and wild flowers, once abandoned farming huts have been converted into cool, ultramodern holiday cabins

After a long ascent via hairpins through smaller and smaller villages in the Swiss Alps, the bumpy track around the mountainside eventually petered out into a stony path, indicating we had reached the end of our journey.

I had the sinking feeling that we were in the wrong place. There should have been a collection of high-design chalets around here somewhere, all floor-to-ceiling glass and exposed concrete, according to the website images. But all I could see were a handful of dilapidated wooden farm sheds.

Chic Black Flooring Ideas

When we see the color black, we think sophistication, luxuriousness, and timelessness. Black is a color that simply doesn’t expire; it’s as stylish today as it will be decades down the road. Per the ancient teachings of Feng Shui, black also indicates strength, authority, and success, and having it in your home is thought to attract luck and success in your career.

There are also a few reasons why black works well on floors. Black is a subtle neutral that, without attracting too much attention, works well with existing décor choices and color schemes. Need some more convincing? Check out four of our favourite sleekest and chicest black flooring ideas below.

 

Wood floors, painted with black, high gloss paint

If you’re worried about black flooring making your space look smaller, consider utilizing a high gloss paint in a room with sufficient light which will allow the light to bounce off the paint and give your space depth you never knew it could have.

Wood floors with a matte black finish

Dark wood in general will encapsulate feelings of warmth in your room, making a statement without taking away from existing décor. Polished black wood is a great compliment to rooms with otherwise colorful and busy décor.

Oversized black tile

Tiles are a more durable alternative to wood and black tile in particular is especially trendy right now. Stray from the standard rectangle and square shapes and opt for a geometric formation instead. Try: black, hexagonal, herringbone or scalloped formations for added visual intrigue.

Painted concrete

Speaking of durable, polished concrete floors have the potential to last forever, promising to sustain minimal damage, if any. Choose between a high-sheen, matte or even distressed look.

Christmas jumpers are a bit like bikinis – all the best styles seem to sell out early. Get ahead of the game this season with our edit of the best styles, whatever your budget.

If the thoughts of wearing festive knitwear brings you out in hives, fear not – Christmas jumpers can actually be stylish.

Yes, the prices may be higher, but the cashmere blend and potential to wear post-Christmas is huge, making this a worthy investment. Bella Freud and Chinti & Parker have some achingly cool options.

And if you’re not sure how to wear your Christmas jumper, rest assured it can be dressed up or down very easily. At the weekend, team with biker boots and cropped straight jeans, and for work (there’s no reason you can’t be chic at your Christmas office lunch), team with velvet trousers or a pleated skirt, with a small heel.

She Came to Slay: Zendaya Rocks Chic Pajamas on the Red Carpet at the Teen Choice Awards

Slay, MJ!

Sunday’s Teen Choice Awards red carpet was a reminder that Zendaya‘s choice style icon nomination is completely warranted, as the actress and singer wowed in chic red-carpet ready pajamas and her hair worn in loose curls.

The 20-year-old star is up for a whopping six awards at the L.A.-based event, including the aforementioned choice style icon plus choice breakout movie star and choice summer movie actress for her role as Michelle Jones in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

“I was inspired by different colors that really spoke to me,” she told PEOPLE in May of her sophomore Daya by Zendaya line. “There was this one copper color that I was obsessed with because I felt it looked so beautiful on everybody’s skin tones.”

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Line for Paige Denim Is Here: Shop Her Chic Must-Haves

Rosie Huntington Whiteley lives in her jeans. We know. She told us. The supermodel is known for her effortlessly flawless off-duty style and no one on the planet has better travel outfits. So it makes sense that she’d want to share her good jeans with the rest of the world. Her debut capsule collection with Paige launched Wednesday, and our shopping carts are already full.

Huntington-Whiteley, who just revealed that she’s expecting her first child with fiancé Jason Statham, has been a brand ambassador for Paige since 2014, instantly connecting (stylistically and personally) with the brand’s founder, Paige Adams-Geller.

“She’s someone whose personal style I’ve always admired,” Adams-Geller tells People Style. “Even before I started working with Rosie, I had her on my Pinterest boards and on design boards at the office.
Just the fact that she wears denim with such ease, in such a natural way that always looks so stunning and polished and puts it all together so nicely is something I have always respected.

Adams-Geller adds that launching a collection together was the “perfect thing to do as the next step in our relationship.” From denim skirts to jumpsuits to the perfect LBD, the capsule offers a little bit of everything. Below we talk to the design duo about creating the line, their style inspirations and more.

Can you share your inspiration behind this capsule?
RHW: I think for me it was really about creating my ideal spring wardrobe. A lot of the inspiration came from my own closet and my own personal style. I collect a lot of vintage, so I pulled in a lot of my vintage clothes to bring into the design studio. We obviously looked at what was going on on the catwalks and then a lot of it was inspired by this sort of perfect, on the go, effortless, cool-girl glamour. And that was really what I had in mind. I always want to feel put-together and polished but comfortable and on the go and easy. I think that’s hopefully what we’ve ended up with. Some of the colors in the collection were really inspired by California. There’s some really pretty, baby blue tie-dye print that inspired by Malibu, which is where I spent a lot of my free time. The “Forever and Ever” theme came about, because Paige and I felt like it was personally a really meaningful saying to the both of us. It had a romantic nod and there was also something about these pieces lasting forever and ever in somebody’s wardrobe.

Can you each share your favorite pieces from the line.
PAG: I would say one of my favorites is the “Judy” dress because I haven’t had a little black dress that felt so fresh in a long time. I think that it’s an easy piece that I will be great to travel with and look sexy yet polished at the same time. Another one of my favorite pieces is definitely the “Flo” bomber because I do travel so much, just like Rosie does, and it feels so comfortable! When you put it on, it’s like you’re just literally snuggled up in a bubble of clouds. It’s so comfortable and easy to throw in a bag and just go, whether you’re going to the gym, going on a plane —  you still look cool.

RHW: It’s really hard to narrow it down, but if I had to choose, I’m really pleased and proud of the “Shiloh” slim flare, which is kind of a unique design for us. There’s no fly zip at the front — the zip goes up at the sides. It’s almost like a yoga pant kind of waistband, which is so incredible comfortable and really, really flattering. They’re very easy to wear and transition from day to night. Then I would say I’m really excited about the “Geraldine” dress, which is our kind of frayed denim, powdery blue denim dress, which I just think is incredibly comfortable. It’s kind of that perfect on the go summer dress. You could dress it up or dress it down. You could wear it with tennis shoes or you can wear it with little heels. It has that kind of really cool girl, effortless, sort of polished feel. And definitely the “Maisie” jumpsuit. I think is so incredibly easy to wear and looks really smart on, but kind of tomboy at the same time. I kind of think of a Parisian girl wearing something like that with a cool hat and a pair of sneakers, and then at the same time, you could dress it up for the evening, with a tad bit of jewelry and a red lip. When I’m packing to go away, it’s one of those things I will always throw in my suitcase.

How many pairs of jeans do you own?
RHW: I probably have a fair amount, but I actually like to keep a tight edit on my wardrobe. I don’t have a massive wardrobe. What that kind of makes me do is really edit. I’m quite an organized person as well, so I like to stay organized, I like to see my clothes, I don’t like to hold onto things if I’m not wearing them. I probably have, bearing in mind I’m the face of Paige, I would say I probably have 75 pairs of jeans. It sounds like a lot, there’s definitely two drawers of Paige, and then the other drawer is like of all vintage styles I’ve held onto. There’s a pair of vintage jeans I’ve hung onto since I was literally 17-years-old that we used as inspiration for the collection. When I started modeling, I couldn’t afford designer clothes, but I would go to London, and somebody told me about Portobello Market and at the time, I was really obsessed with vintage and that’s what I could afford. I could afford to shop in charity shops and huge markets. I have such a special attachment to them, it’s a unique piece that no one else has, and so I’ve obviously held onto this pair of jeans which every time I’ve put on, I felt so cool and they just have this perfect, effortless fit to them. So I brought them when we started the design process and they really inspired all of the jeans because they have this low rise, kind of low cut-out pocket, which sort of lent to this
effortless, relaxed feel of denim.

PAG: You don’t want to know how many pairs of jeans I have. Honestly, it’s crazy because I wouldn’t be able to count them because what’s important to me in the process of building the Paige brand is whenever we get new fabrics, I always test new fabrics, new fits, new washes and make sure before it even goes to market, that I know what the fabric is going to feel like and how it’s going to grow and how it’s going to give. So I’ll take home wear tests and then on top of wear tests, I always want to bring home my favorite new pieces in the collection. And then I hold onto the old ones that are like cult following that I can’t get rid of them because the wash is so amazing and I might want to revive it again. I’ve got tubs of Tupperware, big tubs, filled with jeans. It’s safe to say, 300!

What’s an iconic denim moment in pop culture that always stands out in your mind?
PAG: I always think about Brooke Shields in her Calvin Klein ad. She was stunningly beautiful and the suggestiveness of like nothing getting between her and her Calvins was like Woo… risqué! That image will forever imprint the way I felt about jeans going forward and the excitement that I have towards denim in general.

RHW: I have these images in my mind immediately that pop of Cher, these series of black-and-white photographs that were taken where she has really long hair and she had this simple rolled up T-shirt and these great high-waisted jeans on. I just always loved the image. And then I think of course Cindy Crawford in the Pepsi ad with that sexy white tank top on and the cutoff shorts.

RELATED PHOTOS: Denim Divas! The Celeb-Loved Jeans to Shop Right Now

Who are you dying to see in this collection?
RHW: In the end, I was saying this to Paige, like wouldn’t it be amazing if Blue Ivy and Beyoncé rocked the “Flo” forever and ever bomber? Like in an elevator. We were laughing about that. Whenever you see those pictures of them in little matching outfits together, you know, it doesn’t matter how big the fashion house or if it’s a tiny little brand, or a huge old fashion house, you know that the entire team in that house are just jumping out the door. It’s such a fun moment, the pictures go all around the world. I’m also such a big fan of Rihanna’s personal style, she’s such a boss, and she’s super cool and has a really unique sense of style. I’m also a big fan of girls like Kate Bosworth, Diane Kruger, they have such an effortless, cool-girl style. They’ve been girls that always have inspired my personal style as well, but I’d be thrilled to see anybody in the collection. Not just celebrities. It would be my ultimate dream to be sat in a restaurant one day and to see a girl walk past in a pair of jeans or in a jacket. That’s the ultimate compliment in the end.

PAG: I know, I always have a tough time when I think of it because I get excited when any person is walking down the street wearing Paige — I still get giddy. One of my music icons has always been Gwen Stefani. I was like I think she’d look insane in some of these pieces. She’s a fan of the brand so that would make me really excited. I was also thinking about supermodels that I grew up obsessed with, and there was one that popped in my head the other day, Karen Mulder. So if Karen Mulder was rocking this collection, it would make my little high school fantasies come to life I think.

Feel Good Fashion: Parisian Chic Style of Portland Fashion Designer Michelle Decourcy

Portland has plenty of interesting fashion looks and creative self-expressions seen everyday throughout the city in different neighborhoods.

Yes, people living out different lifestyles, mixing and matching what appeals to their own personal taste, and I appreciate the vibrant array of self-directed fashion views that Portland peeps take on each and every one of them.

However what continues, to draw my attention is well-crafted elegance. Yes, designs that spell simple glamour, like the Parisian chic style of Portland fashion designer Michelle Decourcy.

Why?

“I like to feel good,” so says Decourcy.

Okay, sounds easy enough. What else?

“And I like to turn to my closet for inspiration and design my collections from what I wear every day.”

2014-01-16-3Gold.jpg

Model, Lauren Jewels and Photography byTravis Geny

Furthermore, what I like about the custom made designs by Decourcy is the deeply rooted fashion reflection of Parisian quality, sophisticated fabrics, (French lace) and silhouettes that move, and groove with the female body.

Others agree, The Stylist Kimberly Warner writes, “Michelle DeCourcy’s meteoric rise in the fashion industry has made her one of the industry’s shooting stars. Michelle burst onto the scene when Norah Jones wore her dress to the 2003 Grammy Awards.”

Decourcy, a muse of many talents, when not in studio meeting clients and designing her bridal collection, and ready-to-wear fashion, is living large on stage as a rock star in her band called the Rock Tarts, performing the music of the 80’s, 90’s, and now some of her own original tunes.

How does Decourcy maintain her creative fire?

“When it’s not fun anymore, stop.”

2014-01-16-4Orchid.jpg

Model, Lauren Jewels and Photography by Travis Geny

I appreciate that kind of strength and joie de vivre as the French would say, so here are a few pieces from the bridal collection and ready-to-wear line that capture the Decourcy sparkle.

One final fashion tip when selecting or creating an outfit?

Decourcy says, “Keep in simple. Choose one body part to make a focused fashion statement, like the back, legs or chest. Invite mystery to be a part of your look, in other words, reveal a little and cover up the rest, and by all means feel good.”
