Our Stylist Loves: Plaid Linen

Plaid Linen Shirts

Linen cotton, one of our all-time favorite fabrics, is finally back for spring & summer. Get a cool button-up that melds classic plaid with pops of neon, and the moisture wicking of linen with the crisp structure of cotton. Roll tabbed sleeves and buttoned chest pockets give it some utility, but don’t pigeonhole it as a casual shirt – it feels equally at home under a blazer.

The Weekend Fix: Head For The Fest

The Weekend Fix: Head for the Fest
DO/SEE
DO/SEE Head for the FestHead for the Fest

Scored a ticket to the sold-out fest in Indio, CA this weekend? Then the hard part is over. We’ve got some tips to help you enjoy it to the fullest.

Insider Tips:

Drink lots of water. We meant it.
Remember that Indio is, essentially, the desert. No one wants to spend the weekend with heat stroke or dehydration headaches, so keep on guzzlin’.

Timestamp your texts.
Reception can be hellish, so if you get separated from your friends this helps cut down on confusion. Even better, arrange a meeting place ahead of time.

Dress fest appropriately.
In a word: layers. Rocking a bikini top is totally acceptable, be but sure to have comfortable, breathable layers to keep you out of the sun and ready to party.

Go with the flow.
The best-laid plans…usually disintegrate several hours after getting through the gates. Try to see all the bands on your list, but don’t freak if things don’t go as planned.

See the lineup! Who are you most pumped to see?

Our Stylist Loves: White Hot

 
Sporting a head-to-toe hue is one of the easiest ways to get a clean, bold look. Which is why this spring, we’re ditching the drabs of winter and going white-hot monochrome. Try mixing layers and textures to keep it from looking too one-note. Crochet, denim, mesh – they’re your new best friends – day or night.
