How to wear Fall's trendiest color, Marigold!

How to wear Fall's trendiest color, Marigold!
If you haven't already seen it all over your social media, let us be the first to tell you! Marigold, that orange-y yellow color you would normally never think to put on your body, is THE color for Fall. Yes, it's true. Fashion Bloggers are quickly scooping up all the Marigold accessories, coats, dresses, etc. and they are styling them like pros! If you haven't jumped on this trend, that's okay! We're giving you all the styling advice on how to wear the color of the season with confidence! We will let you in on a little hint: it's ALL about the color choice.

And the first rule with color blocking, you can't go wrong with complementary colors. Marigold, an orange shade, is opposite blue on the color wheel so they will always go together! You can start this trend off easy by finding these colors in a stripe, as seen in our frequency v neck thermal, or go with a blue sweater and add marigold accessories like earrings or a purse, or vice versa! However, don't be afraid to go bold! Marigold is everywhere, find a long marigold coat and pair it with our bright blue Southside Thermal and a blue plaid scarf! Keep your shoes neutral with a brown or black and don't forget to accessorize! Shop our fave pics for our 'Marigold and Blue' scheme below:

Fall means it's time to break out the jewel tones! If you follow our blog, you know quetzal (another take on emerald), is also trending this season and we are obsessed with both. Hence, why we LOVE to mix them! If you're keen on making a statement, analogous colors are the way to do it! Colors next to each other on the color wheel easily blend into one another so this isn't the first time we've seen green and yellow paired, and it definitely won't be the last! Go bold by pairing a Marigold dress like our Loren dress with an emerald (or olive) jacket. Or go a little more subtle by pairing our Sibley Sweater Dress with a marigold clutch and earrings. Break up the color clash by pairing a denim jacket (or any other neutral color like tan or cream) over your dress! Shop our favorites of this color scheme below:

The easiest way to introduce the Marigold trend into your wardrobe is by pairing it with blacks and browns. Give your wardrobe a pop of color with our MinkPink Daisy Mesh Top with colored daisies paired with black pants and accessories for an easy put together look! You can also pair it under a jumper like our Valerie Pinnie Dress to make the sleeves stand out! We're also obsessing over our marigold Venice Bohemian Mini with a subtle floral pattern with pops of brown and red. This one is super easy to wear because all you have to do is throw it on and head out! If you want to tone down the pattern, you can tuck this one into a brown pleated midi skirt or denim mini if you need a more casual look. Shop this color scheme below:

It's almost Spring Cote babes! We have so many exciting things happening this month at Cote, such as debuting our Spring Lookbook for you guys! We are shooting tomorrow with our amazing ambassadors and photographer and we are just giddy about getting you guys all the Spring styles we are LOVING! Follow along on our Instagram stories tomorrow to meet the Team! We've been working SO hard to pick the best items for you guys and we will start rolling them out on Monday! Can you say Easter dresses anyone?  (we may have a few dresses coming out PERFECT for the occasion.. thanks pastel trend!) Not only are we getting you guys a gorgeous lookbook this month, we're also planning some amazing collabs that we are so excited about! March is going to be a good one guys, and not only because the first day of Spring, St. Patty's Day, and our amazing owner Abby's birthday is this month! 

So, we wanted to share with you guys one of our favorite trends this Spring, boyfriend jeans! But a lot of you babes have been wondering, how do I wear these? I've always been a skinny jean girl, how do I make that transition to a looser fit? Boyfriend Jeans should be a staple piece in any wardrobe because they look great with literally. everything. Basic tees, chunky sweaters, girly blouses, sneakers, booties, heels.. told ya. Our Just Black 'Not Your Boyfriend's Jean' are the perfect introduction to the boyfriend jean, the slimmer cut and dark wash help to create a slimming effect as opposed to the light, looser cuts. Here are some easy ways to rock these jeans this season:

1. Laid Back Look (Puppy not included) - One way we love boyfriend jeans is with a loose fitted sweater like our Marseille Balloon Sleeve. You may think at first "no, I'll just look frumpy." We're here to tell you, you're wrong. The way to pull off a loose sweater with a boyfriend jean is to tuck in the front or side of the sweater and roll the cuff of the jeans.. Cuffed jeans help to elongate the legs and the tucked in sweater helps to frame the figure and draw the waist in. Off the shoulder also helps as seen on Layn! How cute is her little pup? Back story, him and his brothers are all adoptable pit bull mixes at Misplaced Mutts out of Newport, NC! We were able to spend all day with these little love bugs, and they are SO cute!

2. Off Duty - The roomy silhouette of boyfriend jeans pairs effortlessly with girly tops like our Marco Tie Top! Structured tops create a balance in your look like you deliberately wore loose fitting jeans, as opposed to throwing on pants that are slightly too big. Luckily, our jeans still have a tight fit around the waist and hips and are true to size to hug your curves before giving you a looser fit in the leg. A cropped tie t-shirt gives you the perfect off-duty weekend style paired with some sneakers and sunnies! Shop the look here

3. All Trenched Up - Can you ever go wrong with a classic trench coat? In this case, definitely not. If you're looking for a simple, classic style to take you from day to night, pair a trendy top with your boyfriend jeans and add a structured trench to balance out your look. Don't forget to accessorize with a chunky sandal, hoop earrings and maybe a statement necklace to really dress up the look! Shop the look here

4. Ultra Femme - Like we mentioned earlier, boyfriend jeans go with literally. everything! So even if you want to dress up your look, a buttoned down blouse and a simple heel can be oh so chic! The embroidery trend is still going strong, and adding a feminine detail paired with a boyfriend jean is the perfect way to style your Spring look! How cute is this for your Sunday brunch?! Shop the Crystal Top here and Boyfriend Jean here
