A Trend for the Artist Within

. We are completely obsessed with the paint splatter trend over here at RLS. And no, this version is not the same as the one from the 80’s so please get rid of those clothes if you still have them!

This tells us that they were created mostly with the runway in mind, …

Spring 2015 Trend #8: Cool in Culottes

. This trend is for all of my daring fashion friends. Culottes are the “trend to try” for Spring 2015. Make your excuses now. “They hit at such an awkward place,” you’ll say. But you’d be surprised! Culottes can actually be flattering when you find the right pair for you. And now that the trend has taken off over the last year, you’ll see more and more iterations of the silhouette in stores. Need more convincing? Check out our culottes Pinterest board and keep reading for pictures of Kyle in her culottes! These are the three types of culottes to look …
