The athlete chic trend has been so big this year! From the return of joggers and tracksuits to the Alexander Wang x H&M collection, the fashion industry has taken a casual turn and it doesn’t look like this trend will be ending any time soon. For those of us who are skirt-wearing and heel-rocking ladies, getting into this trend can be difficult. At LBS, we love a good heel, but have found that sneakers are stylish too, and definitely a good way to give your feet some well-deserved rest. Keep reading for the most stylish sneakers and where to buy them!

LBS Chic: Coat Check


This fall season I’m seriously mad for plaid. I titled this post Coat Check because it seems like so many retailers this season are offering dope coats, jackets and ponchos in these bold check patterns that really make a statement.


Coat: ASOS | Jeans: Forever 21 (similar here) | Boots: Kelsi Dagger (similar here) | Bag: H&M | Ring c/o Kendra Scott | Watch c/o Fossil | Hat: Street Vendor (similar here)


I found this one at ASOS.com and I guess it was so popular, it’s already sold out! But never fear, I have ten other chic options for you to choose from to get a similar look:

Savonne posted about the importance of a great coat in this Best Coats for Winter post already, so I don’t have to reemphasize that an awesome winter coat is KEY.


It’s often the only thing people see you in whether you’re cruising the subway or walking the city streets. And it’s the first thing people see when you walk through the door! You should have different ones for different occasions but if you can only have one – get one that you LOVE.

What I really liked about this Throw On Coat from ASOS is it’s ease. It was perfect for in-between fall/winter weather because you literally just throw it on – no buttons and no zips. I’ve been layering it with my infinity scarf and long-sleeved turtlenecks underneath.


It also works really well dressed up for evening events with a dress and heels or dressed down with acid-wash jeans like this particular look.

5 Items We Need: Alexander Wang H&M Collection

At LBS we’re obviously obsessed with all things H&M. Christina’s NYFW Style Essentials series was practically and advertisement for H&M’s fall collection. When it comes to trendy and affordable pieces, they are a leader in the fast fashion industry. H&M has set themselves apart with their annual designer collaborations. We’ve swooned over their past collections with designers like Versace, Marni, and Maison Martin Margiela. These collections have a higher price point than typical H&M pieces but obviously considerably lower than retail prices for these luxury designers. That being said, we’re bubbling over with excitement for H&M’s latest collaboration with Alexander Wang, which is set to release in select stores and online tomorrow!

LBS Runway Report: Lacoste Fall/Winter 2014

Lacoste - NYFW CollageCamp sites, mountain trails and other outdoors activities aren’t often considered ideal spaces for chic fashion attire. We tell ourselves we should value comfort over style when we’re walking, kicking around a soccer ball, or enjoying the treats Mother Nature offers. Lacoste’s fall/winter 2014 collection tells us differently. Sporty can be fashionable, especially when alterations are made for comfort. more this way
