Layer Cake

So many wonderful things have layers.  Cakes, onions, misunderstood ogres, sedimentary rock formations.  Not to mention some really great outfits!  One of the best things about fall is that we can finally start layering again, and there are so many fun ways to do it.

We love how this top and cardigan have similar lengths.  It's like they were made to be worn together.  This is an easy and simple way to layer.  This lovely necklace and great bag give the outfit a bit more dimension.

Cardigan: $72
Top: $68
Jeans: $168
Necklace: $54
Purse: $278

A shirt under a sweater is a classic combination.  Add a new spin to it by wearing a sweater with cropped sleeves over a shirt with fun cuff details.  That way you can stay warm, and the beautiful embroidery isn't lost in the meantime!

Sweater: $74
Top: $118
Pants: $198
Purse: $128

We love dresses, they can be a beautiful outfit in just one piece of clothing.  But that can also be their downfall--they sometimes aren't very versatile.  Not to mention that sometimes they seem a bit too fancy to wear for everyday activities.  But have you ever considered layering with your dresses?  This sweatshirt-type tee looks great layered over this lovely purple dress, making it a bit more casual and giving it a completely new look!

Top: $48
Dress: $54
Necklace: $56
Bag: $110

We love layering crop tops with some of the great longer pieces we have in right now, especially when they have similar sleeve lengths.

Crop top: $38
Top: $56
Pants: $248
Necklace: $62
Purse: $108

Denim jackets are so classic.  This one is a basic that every girl needs in her closet.  You may be a bit wary of the denim on denim trend--we get it, bad memories from the 80s--so stick a toe in by wearing your denim jacket with a different color of denim, like this basic black.

Top: $34
Jacket: $74
Pants: $230
Scarf: $26
Purse: $138

Some shirts were made for layering, like this beautiful one with side slits.  Keep it subtle like we did here with a neutral colored tee underneath, or sneak in a fun pop of bright color.  Go wild!  There are no rules!

Top: $30
Tee: $24
Pants: $150
Necklace: $88
Purse: $278

This tank is one of our favorite pieces for layering.  It is beautiful on its own, but it also looks great underneath other shirts because of the fun beaded detail on the hem.  We think it goes just perfectly with this peplum top from Free People.

Peplum: $68
Tank: $88
Pants: $28
Necklace: $70
Purse: $198

The more layers the better, don't you think?  Do it with lighter pieces so you're not sweating by lunchtime.  Look how great this button-up top looks with a henley over it, all topped off by another great denim jacket!

White Top: $54
Burgundy Top: $78
Denim: $94
Pants: $128
Necklace: $48
Bag: $209

Here is another of our favorite ways to layer dresses.  Maybe you have a dress that you love that is a bit too short for fall.  Pull a fall skirt on over it and it's a completely new outfit.  Layer some patterns while you're at it--we love the way these stripes look with this floral jacket!

Stripe Dress: $138
Skirt: $62
Jacket: $34
Necklace: $80
Purse: $128


Happy layering!

Pick Your Silhoutte

 You know what's great about fashion these days?  Lots of things!  But one thing that is different from years past is that there is a huge variety of silhouettes to choose from.  Long gone are the days of only having one kind of outfit to choose from.  If you want to define your waist like it's the 50s, or dress up like Twiggy in the 60s--you CAN! The sky is the limit when it comes to silhouettes, and we here at Soel have all the hookups for you.  Check out some of the options we have right now!

We are loving this peplum top.  It has a gorgeous low back and great seam details.  It would look just as great with some skinnies or leggings as it does with this skirt!

Top: $68
Skirt: $42
Hat: $14
Necklace: $44

We have lots of great shirts in right now with this gorgeous flowy silhouette, and we love this burgundy one from Free People.  It looks like you've layered, but without any added bulk!

Top: $78
Pants: $230
Scarf: $48
Purse: $188

 If you love t-shirts but don't relish showing off every little contour of your body, this is a great option for you.  This loose-fitting tee has a great tribal-inspired print and goes great with these pants and sweater from Free People.

Top: $46
Pants: $128
Sweater: $128
Purse: $138

We love this turtleneck sweater dress from French Connection.  It oozes class and simple sophistication.  You'll have to come in to see the beautiful and unexpected zipper detail down the sleeves.

Here's another great turtleneck piece paired with this soft quilted moto jacket from Splendid.  Doesn't it look cozy?

Sweater: $78
Jacket: $168
Pants: $198
Bag: $209
Necklaces: $44 and $46

Here's another great peplum silhouette.  This one fits loose and has dolman sleeves.  We think it would look great on every kind of body!

Shirt: $34
Pants: $248
Hat: $32
Purse: $198
Necklace: $56

This dress with a tribal-inspired print has an elastic waistband that gives it a great silhouette when it's on.  Don't believe us?  Come try it on for yourself and see!

For that matter, come in and try them all.  We know you'll find something you love!  With so many options, how could you not?

Sugar and Spice and Everything NICE!

It's wonderful being a girl, don't you agree?  Think about it: we get to wear dresses and skirts, ruffles and floral prints!  Well girls, hold your drinks, because we have some great feminine pieces in right now.

We love the floral print of this dress.  It has contrasting black sleeves and is perfectly fancy.  If you want to tone it down a bit, throw on your trusty denim jacket!

Dress: $168
Jacket: $74
Necklace: $54

We absolutely adore this top.  Pintucks and a ruffly stand-up collar, it's practically perfect in every way!

Top: $32
Cardigan: $72
Pants: $158
Purse: $128
Necklace: $48

You know what's the greatest thing?  Just because we are ladies, doesn't mean we have to miss out on any of the greats of menswear.  Take this classic button-up white shirt and tuxedo-inspired skirt for example.  Looking sharp!

Shirt: $84
Skirt: $36
Necklace: $54

Here's another one of our current favorite dresses.  It also has contrasting black sleeves so it looks just as great on its own as it does with this great moto jacket from G-Star.

Dress: $78
Jacket: $270
Purse: $128
Necklace: $48

If you want something extra-girly, this is the outfit for you.  A gorgeous midi-length skirt that is perfect for the upcoming cold weather, a pink crocheted lace chiffon top, and a lovely necklace that seems to have been made just for this outfit.  We think Lucille Ball might have worn this when she was filming that vitameatavegemin ad.   Well maybe she didn't, but she could have.

Shirt: $34
Skirt: $72
Necklace: $18 (includes earrings)

Have you ever worn a sweatshirt and thought, "I wish this was just a little girlier"?  Never fear, we have just the thing for you.  Look at the lace detail!  Just beautiful.

Shirt: $52
Pants: $180
Scarf: $40

We love everything about this outfit.  This is one of our very favorite sweaters right now, and we got this beautiful striped dress from French Connection that goes wonderfully with it.

Dress: $138
Sweater: $118
Purse: $128
Necklace: $48

This floral top is so beautiful.  It has a ruffle around the collar and down the middle.  And it's so versatile, it looks amazing with anything from a cardigan to a military-inspired jacket.

Top: $36
Jacket: $198
Pants: $179
Purse: $98
Necklace: $24

This crop top is pure fun.  And girls just wanna have fun, you know?  Add this high-waisted skirt and it's a date.  Now let's talk about this purse.  Boys don't really get to use purses unless they live in Europe.  But we get to use them as much as we want.  And this beautiful one from Hobo is just right for stashing and toting whatever your heart desires.

Top: $32
Skirt: $44
Purse: $278
Necklace: $36
 
 So what are you waiting for?  Make it a girls' night out and get over here!

But it gets even better!  Look at the subtle polka dot print on this tee.  And how about that necklace? You guessed it, also from the new jewelry line. Beautiful!

Here's a closer look at the shoulders on that jacket.  And here's another gorgeous layered necklace.


We love this simple outfit.  It's perfect as it is for warm days, and when it's cold it would look lovely with a sweater and tights!  If you're lucky enough to be going on an adventure soon, this Nena & Co day bag is the perfect choice for your luggage.

Shirt: $32
Skirt: $48
Bag: $209
