• Your 2017 {Hoboken} Summer Style Trend Guide

    Written by:

    We all have our go-to denim shorts, easy summer slides, and slip on sun dresses. But we want you to take that summer style to the next level, so we’re letting you in on this year’s summer must haves to keep you up to date with your favorite celeb style icons — and how to shop locally for them. Here are a few of the best trends we’ve seen that will keep you looking hot and feeling cool this summer season {and where to buy them in Hoboken}:

    Mix & Match Prints

    MAMA always told you to steer-clear of mixing printed patterns, but this season we will tell you otherwise. As long as the hues align, play around with your favorite patterns paired solid accessories or plain denim. Sorry, Mom. Plus, we trust anything verified by the one and only Queen Bey.

    Peek-A-Boo Undergarments

    How much is too-much, you ask? Apparently this season, skin is in. Be sure to portion your covered vs. bare ratio, and be fearless with a detailed bralette as your summer go-to undergarment. Even Kendall Jenner {above} seems to agree.

    Serious Stripes

    If you’re not feeling the floral on stripes duo from above, then try some serious stripes that pack a mean punch all on their own. Love them or hate them, the Kardashian klan is clearly killing the summer style, so here’s Kourtney Kardashian providing a larger than life striped jacket for some trend-inspo.

    ^ SHOP LOCAL: striped pants from @dorldorhoboken

    Bold Brights

    Who says orange is only for parking cones? Bring out your playful side {since that’s what this sunshiny season is all about} and rock those neon colors paired with some classic pieces and a simple hairstyle for a less-than-overwhelming signature style. This bright orange inspiration brought to you by the stylish Selena Gomez.

    Fun & Fringed

    We’re all aware that Olivia Palermo is a flawless example of unique style perfection, but we promise that you can pull off a signature look too! If you’re not about playing around with a neon wardrobe {like the above} we suggest you take a risk with this summer season’s biggest style must-have: tassels! Whether it be a beach bag or full-on tassel earrings, this trend will instantly give you that beachy-summer feel even while within the concrete jungle.

    ^ SHOP LOCAL: gold statement earrings from @aaraaaccessories

    ^ SHOP LOCAL: fringed necklace from @aaraaaccessories

    ^ SHOP LOCAL: tassle earrings from @dearhannah

    Laid Back Casual Chic

    Genna moved to Hoboken upon graduating from the University of Tennessee to start her Marketing career at HGTV, and is most currently at The Knot in downtown Manhattan. To Genna, there's nothing better than cheering on UT football, soaking in warm sunny weather on her balcony, and watching starry-skied movies on Pier 13. You may have spotted Genna as a customer associate at Anthropologie ...that is, when she's not doing Hot Yoga or punching bags at CKO! Most days, you can find Genna circling the Mile Square on an early morning run or attempting to justify her shopping habits along Washington Street.
