7 Top Trends for Fall 2014

Fall is just around the corner, and new looks are calling for attention! As designers sent models down the runway, there were a few trends that stood out to us, and we want to share them with you! We know that some will appeal to you and some won't, but now is your chance to stand out and push your closet just a little! 

Robe Coats :: We love this! These coats are loose, wrap around your body, and are totally chic. They can be dressed up for a night out, but still worn loose with jeans and a scarf. Don't be afraid to embrace the robe coat this fall/winter!

Novelty Prints :: We aren't sure who doesn't love a great print, and taking it way out of the box are novelty prints. They are whimsical, fun, and flirty. While you don't have to wear that print head to toe, we would encourage a couple stand-out pieces that you can wear with anything. 

Knits :: Nothing says "classic" more than knits. These are rarely out of style, and come in every size, shape, color, and style. Wear them with everything. They make a great closet staple that can be worn almost year-round. 


Scandinavian :: We have seen amazing printed leggings and sweaters for a few years, but now is the time to embrace your inner Swede! Leggings are the easiest way to add that super fun Scandinavian style to your closet. Just pair them with your favorite knit sweater and great boots and you're set!


Dresses over pants ::  We know that this trend will be more of a stretch for some. But we think it's a great way to take some of those great tunics you bought for summer and carry them through the year. You can pair short or long dresses with everything from skinny jeans to Dickies, it's your call! 


Cowboy :: Living in Nashville, we find this trend perfect! There are so many great things about true country style, so find your inner Carrie Underwood and pair those fringe boots you already have with some great country prints! Don't be afraid of the big hats as well...they are always a plus and great statement piece. 


Turtlenecks ::  These are not your 1987-style turtlenecks. These are high-fashion must-haves that come in many shapes and sizes. They are great to wear on their own, but are even better for layering. Consider this a staple, and don't be afraid to wear it many different ways. 

 

 

Heylee B will be bringing in some great fashion for this fall, so watch for these trends to hit our racks soon!

Are you ready to swoon?!

When we told you recently that we went to Dallas and were ridiculously excited about the new designers that we found, we weren't kidding! And guess what? Inventory is flowing in and we can't get enough! There are new tops, skirts, dresses, pants, and accessories that will make you swoon!

We really wanted to take Lustatotenterrara not only fashion forward, but into a world that really defines who we are. We want to offer you all of those great closet staples that never get old, all while expanding your ability to think outside the box. In doing that, we have taken every new item and styled it with accessories, and given you the ability to see a complete style...and hopefully help you see it in a new light (and in your closet). We all know that seeing an article of clothing on a rack is much harder to envision on ourselves than it is if we see it walking down the runway or in a well laid out catalog spread. 

Our team favorite so far has been this mustard-colored printed tunic by a'reve. This tunic boasts not only a bold color, but a beautiful gray feather print and gray crocheted color detail. It can be worn as both a dress and a tunic (fancy name for long shirt), and we paired it with a pair of brown leather booties and our panama hat. But don't think that you can't throw on a pair of skinny jeans and flip flops with this. It's versatile and a stand-out winner in our books! It fits amazing and would look great on every body type. This is a must-have for every style-savvy woman's closet! 

Next on our list was this ultra-feminine coral dress by a new company we fell in love with: Timing. Though this dress may seem simple to you, we think it's understatedly chic. It's fully lined, has an elastic wait, and scoops at the neck in the front and back. The pleating and cap sleeves make the dress flattering and modest. We paired this dress with a vintage pin necklace that really makes a statement! We added this dress to our closet as a great Easter dress...but it's also easily carried over into an everyday dress with flats or wedges. 

While we did add a few new designers to our list of favorites, a couple companies continue to impress us and bring great styles consistently. One of those companies is Blupepper. This scalloped edge ultra-intricate top is one of those tops we just couldn't pass-up. We were obsessed. The delicate detail of the shirt is so understatedly beautiful, we can't stop looking at it. It is definitely a stand-out piece and a must-have for your closet. 

 Lastly, with both Memorial Day and the 4th of July just around the corner, we couldn't pass up this American flag shirt by another new company to get excited about, Classic. It's a straight-forward knit that is perfect for summer! This shirt is sure to stand out at any holiday party, or stand alone with your favorite jeans or shorts. It will take your closet up that notch that you've been looking for! And, for our British friends, we have a Union Jack version for you! 

We hope that you're as excited about these new looks as we are...just don't miss out on any of items that you love because sizes are limited and they always go quickly!

Spring is (finally) Within Sight!

Here at Heylee B, we have joked that these last few months have felt like a trip to Narnia, where it's "always winter and never Christmas." This fall and winter have been a long, and, in some places, brutal one that has hung on much longer than we would like. We know that you're just as ready for warm, springtime sunshine and trips to the beaches we are. The good news? Those days are finally within sight! 

This past week, our staff headed to Dallas Buyers Market (as the wind and snow let loose in Nashville) to get a glimpse of what's to come for the warmer season. The 18-story beehive of a building boasted tons of new looks and trends to get excited about! The hundreds of racks of new and old trends with beautiful fabrics got our wheels turning as we thought of you and what Heylee B could offer you in the coming months. You can for sure look forward to new floral & graphic prints adorning shirts, dresses and shorts; lace and crocheted detailing to really make you swoon; and vintage threads to take your closet up a notch. Our staff could barely contain themselves! We are definitely itching for just about everything to be in our own closets. 

 One of the most amazing things that we discovered were a couple of new designers that are taking some of our favorite ideas up a notch. They were pairing all of the trends of 2013 & 2014 with some great vintage looks to bring together a super chic style that anyone would be able to wear. New dresses with vintage flair, silk kimonos, and edgy jumpsuits/rompers were all on our list of must haves from here. Heylee found this great floor length floral kimono that we were obsessed with! (And will be available in a few weeks!)

We flew back home energized and with tons of new clothes, bags, and jewelry en route to our online store, so be sure to keep checking in. We are confident that you will be just as thrilled as we are with these new finds! Everything we have coming in will be in limited quantities (thanks to high demand on these designers), so you will want to be sure to get in on those pieces as soon as they come in so you can get them before someone else snatches them up!
