Your 2019 Spring Trend Guide

Your 2019 Spring Trend Guide

Yes, we're already thinking about Spring over here, and while you may think it's WAY too early, it will be here before you know it! And since we tend to buy a whole season (or two) in advance, we already know what trends are going to be huge, which ones we will be loving, and which ones will have us saying "thank u, next."

We put together our list of trends, fabrics, and colors that you will be seeing this Spring and what you can expect from us! Because, we're definitely not set on all of them just yet... so you babes need to help us decide what to buy!

Trends for Spring 2019: 

1. Biker Shorts - Chanel wasn't the only designer to rock biker shorts on the runway during Fashion Week, but they sure did it the best! We've already seen celebs catch on to this comfy trend, but we're not so sure if we are ready for it in the store! Will you babes be jumping on this trend? Let us know in the comments!

2. Crochet - And not your usual "boho chic" crochet you're already seeing. Crochet for Spring 2019 will be an elevated version giving off some serious 70's vibes, which we can always get behind. Think vibrant patterns and colors for this new take on crochet. Oscar de la Renta had a great take on a crochet maxi dress and you can definitely expect a version or two here at Côte!

3. Feathers - Designers were not afraid of feathers on the runway, giving a major forecast for all feather everything in Spring 2019! Now we're definitely down for feeling fancy no matter the occasion, and feathered accessories may very well make their way here, but we're not so sure if feather tank tops and dresses are very practical for the beach! We still love a ruffle though, so get ready for some bold silhouettes in the Spring! 

4. Earth Tones - Monochromatic earth tones were a designer fave, and you know we love a good neutral! And it's not just one, it's all the sand, khaki, tan, and cream you could ever ask for. Obviously, we will be hopping on this one... not to mention the utility style will also be a trend... Get ready for some chic safari vibes as seen on Gigi Hadid for Fendi.

5. Punchy Prints - we already mentioned we were going bold with ruffles next season, but prints are also going to be huge! And not just one print; mixing prints is definitely going to be a trend! Stripes, polka dots, scarf prints (yes, straight from the 70's), even mix and match fabrics! Now we're not going as bold with mixing prints, but you can definitely expect some florals you've never seen before inspired by these Zimmerman colors and ruffles.

Now there's a whole other array of colors that we can go over like Living Coral, Fiesta Red, and Aspen Gold, but I think we're going to save those for another blog post focused just on color trends and how to wear them! Which of these trends are you loving and how much of them do you want to see at Côte? Make sure to follow us on our social media where we make polls and ask questions specifically so you guys can choose what we buy!

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:

Fall Moodboards You will Love

Fall Moodboards You will Love

It's finally October which means it's time for pumpkin everything, chunky sweaters, and corn mazes with the girls! We don't care how "basic" it is to be obsessed with all things Fall, it's hard not to be with the weather changing, the amazing golden hour lighting, and the coziness of curling up with a cup of coffee and a good book. Our clothing, interior design, and schedules are all changing with the season. We at Côte draw inspiration from colors we see in nature, on our explore feeds on Instagram, and the Fashion Week runways to choose styles we think you'll love, put together photo shoot color stories, and pretty much everything else we do here. So we decided to share some colors and trends we love this season with you, as well as give you guys a little something you can keep on your phone to draw inspiration from! Yep, we're giving you guys some new Fall inspired phone wallpapers so you can always have a little piece of Côte with you. And the colors this year are SO. GOOD. 

1. Lavender Mood Board

fall 2018 lavender and crocus petal mood board for cote boutique

We love all things lavender this season, or as Pantone likes to call the specific shade for this season, "crocus petal." We always have lavender out in the store for decoration, and love the way the color pops against our other earthy shades! It's a different color for Fall, but you will undoubtedly be seeing it everywhere, even at Côte! When done right, you won't be looking like you're going out for Easter lunch, the hushed tone of these lavender shades paired with some Fall reds or browns will definitely give you all the cozy vibes. 

Fall reminds us of a lot of things and movies are one of them! Anyone else always think of Mean Girls when the calendar turns to October 3rd? "on October 3rd, he asked me what day it was..." So for our lavender phone wallpaper, we took inspiration from one of the best quotes from Regina George "home schooled huh, but you're like really pretty" .. I won't quote the rest because I'm sure you babes can quote the entire movie like us!

To download the the wallpaper, simply hold and click 'save image'!

2. Quetzal Green Mood Board

quetzal green fall 2018 mood board by cote boutique

When you're tired of your usual burgandy color scheme for Fall, quetzal green is a great substitute to switch things up! It's dark and moody just like burgandy, and goes with blacks, browns, and creams, basically all your Fall neutrals. You've already seen this color in our Free People Calico Dress, and expect to see more as it was one of Pantone's Fall/Winter colors of the year! So get ahead of the game and start incorporating this color ASAP. You won't regret it. 

Our Quetzal inspired phone wallpaper is just a friendly reminder for all you boss babes to follow your dreams. Live a life you love, love what you do, and when you're super busy, remind yourself to love life each time you look down at your phone! Hold and hit 'save image' to keep this one.

3. Valiant Poppy Mood Board

fall 2018 valiant poppy mood board for cote boutique

Whether it's bloggers like Sincerely Jules, Fashion Week runways, or flowers in nature, we have seen this Valiant Poppy shade almost everywhere (and we don't hate it). It's a little more muted than your usual red and did we mention it goes great with the quetzel green? Peep the Elisabetta Franchi runway look above. This red hue also made the Pantone Fall/Winter colors of the year and we are hoping this one sticks around. It's fun, vibrant, and can be toned down when paired with the right shade of brown. 

Our Valiant Poppy phone wallpaper is an homage to all things us girls love for Fall! Because is it really Fall if you don't wear a chenille cardigan while drinking coffee and finding your way through a corn maze? We didn't think so either... fall 2018 valiant poppy iphone wallpaper by cote boutique

We hope you also love our picks for Fall colors we love, or that you learned something about Fall/Winter 2018 trends. We hope that this little glimpse of how we draw inspiration gives you a little insight into how we do things at Côte.. whether it's picking and styling clothes you babes will love, decorating our own houses for the seasons, or just having an creative outlet and getting ideas together. Mood boards are one of our favorite ways to bring ideas to life! Do you guys want to know how we put them together? Let us know, that can be a blog for another day! 

Thanks babes, and make sure to follow all of our social media pages to keep up with new arrivals, trend forecasts, and everything else we like to do here!

Could you be a French It Girl? The Answer is YES

Could you be a French It Girl? The Answer is YES

We've definitely got a thing for the classics. And Parisian Style is just that. The effortless jean and tees, the relaxed sense of it all. There's something about the French It Girl that we love so much. Maybe it's because Paris is where fashion started. Maybe it's because we've looked up to French Designers like Coco Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, and Christian Dior for our entire lives. Either way, the French It Girl always comes across as cool, confident, and chic. We can't pinpoint exactly why we love it so much, but we are definitely inspired. 

We keep seeing the same rules for French style such as 1) keep your palette neutral with earthy and rust colors. When doing color, stick to classic colors like navy and red. 2) stick with simple patterns like polka dots, gingham, and small florals that will always be in style. 

Whether your French style icon is Brigitte Bardot or newbie Thylane Blondeau, attaining French It Girl status is easy with this killer wardrobe! Keep reading for our choices of the French It Girl staples and how to incorporate them into your own wardrobe, then shop our favorites directly from Côte. 

1. Straight Leg Jeans

A basic tucked in Tee with lived-in straight leg jeans are a classic French style that can easily be incorporated into your own wardrobe. The easiest style to pull off when you're in a fashion rut (it happens to all of us). Find a vintage tee in the bottom of your drawer and tuck her in to some chic high waist jeans. Go for a minimalist look paired with loafers, or dress her up with a bold heel and velvet bag.

Shop our fave pair here: 


Jean Stella Skinny Indigo - Free People $78

 

2. Summer Dress

A long bold pattern is the essence of a French It Girl. The best part about the dress being the star of the show? Minimal accessories is key for this look. Throw on your favorite handmade gold pendant (like our Coin Necklace) and you're good to go. You can easily throw on a denim jacket and some white sneakers for a more modern look, or go simple with a bucket bag and cat eye sunglasses. 

Shop our fave Midi here: 


Caldasi Midi Dress - Free People $128

3. Patterned Dress

 

French Girl style is a classic, and polka dots are equally a classic. You can never go wrong with a simple print that never goes out of style. Simple details like buttons and a pendant necklace are great for a chic look. Or channel your inner Chloe Bleinc and pair with bold booties!  

Shop our fave tee shirt dress here: 


Kindred Button Front Dress - MinkPink $98

Some other must haves for attaining the French It Girl style are espadrilles, gold jewelry, a straw boater hat, and a good bucket bag. So pick your faves and incorporate them into your own wardrobe and never worry about being out of style.

How to Layer Jewelry like a Pro

How to Layer Jewelry like a Pro

layering handmade jewelry available at cote boutique

Minimalist jewelry is trending (and good thing too) because we've stocked up on brand new simple jewels that can be worn alone or layered to make a statement. If you have followed us for a while you know our jewelry holds a special place in our heart and we are always making room for more in our teeny store. All of our Purpose Jewelry is handmade by survivors of human trafficking and goes toward building new sanctuaries around the world where women can work, get an education, and other tools they need to recover and make their way back into society. Our newest collection from Purpose Jewelry was handpicked by us to make layering a breeze, keep reading for tips and tricks on how to layer our newest line of jewelry and get the most out of your pieces!

1.) Use necklaces of multiple lengths. The best thing about having simple jewels from this collection is that you can dress them up with pieces you already own! The key is layering necklaces of different lengths. Start with our Coin Necklace (top) that can be adjusted to be short or long with a longer pendant necklace of your own like our Audrey Necklace (bottom). We love to stay consistent with the round pendants for layering! This look is great for a casual day out, but is nice enough for a girl boss meeting for that side hustle!

2. Mix Textures. Let's talk bracelets. Layering bracelets is so easy when they're simple and fun like our 14K Gold Costa Bracelet. Feel free to go bold on the wrist, we added our Stone Bracelet in rose to add some subtle color and texture to the wrist. This could also easily be paired with a chic watch with gold accents or some thicker gold bangles. Playing around with texture is key when sticking with the same metal. Try something hammered with something engraved, or high polish with something matte. The possibilities are endless! We've also styled all these layered pieces with a simple earring like our Rise Studs that have a smooth finish with just a touch of shine! The simpler the better when you're working with a lot of different pieces.

3. Stick to one metal. Or similar metals. Our Purpose Jewelry Collection is made up of 14K Gold and Brass metals that can easily be mixed and matched depending on your budget. We also have silver versions mixed with Rhodium that can be stacked and layered for our silver babes! You can see adding a choker to our already layered coin pendants, can easily make a statement necklace out of your everyday simple items in your jewelry collection!
