Stella McCartney Resort Wear 2012 – Hawaiian Print Is Chic Again

Not too long ago, the Hawaiian shirt occupied a special place in the unfashionable zone, somewhere in the realm of mommy jeans and the tacky Christmas sweater. Not anymore! In Stella McCartney’s Spring 2012 Resort Wear line, the celebrity designer gives the Hawaiian print a long-awaited makeover. Palm trees, sunsets and island florals have never looked so chic.

Said Stella of her Spring 2012 Resort Wear line, “All this color and print is about exciting and re-energizing people, and it’s nice for everyone to see that you can actually enjoy and live in these clothes.” We get where she’s coming from, because her resort line has wearable, casual island style written all over it.

The looks we love most in Stella’s collection are the ones that mix Hawaiian prints with bold stripes. What’s her standout outfit? This pairing of an orange, red and blue striped poncho with tiny Hawaiian print shorts. Only Stella could make mixing silhouettes, proportions and patterns seem so effortless. We’re also loving the collection’s full, ankle-length striped skirt, which has an easy-breezy line perfect for the beach or an afternoon out. Couple that with a casual short-sleeve Hawaiian floral shirt, and you’ve got 21st Century comfy chic vacation wear.

Stella’s line has been a big hit on and off the runway, with the most notable celeb fan being new mom Beyoncé. She recently rocked the collection’s high-waisted, form-fitting floral pants during a day outing, pairing the pants with bright yellow heels and a black blouse to make the look all her own.

Not Your Mother’s Pearls: Meet The Mixtress

easy ways to infuse indian style into runway clothing wardrobe

Luxemi is excited to introduce our new guest blogger, The Mixtress. If you haven’t experienced her blog yet, get ready for The Mixtress’ unique take on Recessionista meets Fashionista. She’ll be sharing how to weave thrift shop finds with designer duds and of course, how to mix your Luxemi favorites with your favorite Western wear.

Pearls have traditionally represented the height of effortless chic, worn by style icons like Jacqueline Kennedy and Coco Chanel. You may have coveted them when you were eight-years-old and rummaging through your mother’s treasure trove, but nowadays, wearing pearls may seems like a “yawn” when you can wear a fashion-forward, chunky statement necklace. Unless you’re the head of a “type-A” sorority, pearls just aren’t part of your regular fashion repertoire—until now.

At Luxemi, where traditional and modern fusion is our expertise, we’ve resurrected your mommy’s pearls and given them new life. To add a touch of modern class to any outfit, try Luxemi’s Crescent Kundan Hanging Earrings ($88). They’ve got a pinch of bohemian, a dash of vintage, and just the right amount of eclectic glamour. Try rocking them with a demure top and an edgy pair of jeans for your Mother’s Day brunch and the world will truly be your oyster, though you might have to share them with Mom!
