Outfits that are both stylish and comfortable? Yes please! Athleisure style has taken over and whether you’re on the way to and from yoga class or headed out for lunch with your girlfriends, this fashion trend is one to try!

 Pam and Gela Velour Tracksuit

Pam and Gela Velour Tracksuit

The popular designers of the velour tracksuit are at it again with this gorgeous blush tone hoodie and track pant set. It’s is the perfect flirty ensemble for travel or running errands around town. You can layer it up further with a puffer vest, or style each piece separately with your favorite jeans or tee.

 Pam & Gela Leopard Tracksuit

We’ve mentioned before that leopard can totally work as a neutral, so don’t be intimidated by the bold print of this tracksuit. It mixes the perfect amount of classic and cool and the fact that these track pants fit similarly to a cropped trouser means this outfit is one you can wear for multiple occasions. Try styling the pants alone with a cool black blouse and heels for an evening out with friends!

 Mother Denim Velvet Loungers

You may know MOTHER for their premium denim styles, but don’t overlook these burgundy lounge pants by them as well. The glitter racing stripe is right on trend and the ankle crop length is not only flattering but will show off your favorite sneakers. They give athleisure that effortlessly cool style to toss on as you head out the door. Plus, they’re so soft!

Fall Color Trends

Fall Color Trends

Just like the changing colors of fall leaves, we’re loving the changing colors of our fall wardrobe. From pops of color to our trusty neutrals, here are a few of our favorites for the season.

Cherry Red:

This energizing tone will brighten your wardrobe for the chilly fall days and nights. It makes a great layering color or stand-alone statement piece, plus it’s perfect for transitioning into the upcoming holiday season!

Raspberry:

This soft feminine tone makes a nice alternative to the classic burgundy tones of fall. We love the way it looks paired with a blue jean and booties, or dressed up with metallic tones.

Oatmeal:

You can never go wrong with a staple neutral color and these cozy oatmeal tones are our choice for fall. Use this color as a base to build your outfits or style an entire outfit for a monochromatic tonal look.

Prep Meets Punk

Prep Meets Punk

Rag & Bone has taken classic prepster style and turned it on its head with punk flair for fall. It’s the perfect mix of the traditional patterns and silhouettes that you’ve grown to love, offset with something a bit unexpected.

Plaid and fall go hand in hand and we love this take on the classic button down in navy and red. Edge it up by tucking the front into a leather skirt with black ankle booties, or styling unbuttoned over a Rag & Bone graphic tee with distressed boyfriend jeans.

An ivory and navy nautical striped sweater is an instant preppy classic, but it also provides a neutral base to kick off your punk rock look. Style yours with a downtown edge paired with super distressed skinny jeans, cargo pants or coated denim.

We can’t forget about the Rag & Bone Simone Pant, which come in two preppy prints--navy stripes and burgundy plaid. The high-waisted silhouette is the perfect pairing for a tucked cheeky graphic tee, or cropped drawstring hoodie. Don’t forget some sneakers to tie it all together!
