Whether you are going back to school or just down the street to get a cup of coffee a backpack will be your go to accessory. This fall’s new crop of backpacks are far from the kind you used to haul to elementary school. Now they are adorned in (faux) leather, prints, or fringe. Really anything goes as long as you are having fun. Take a cue from the Olsen twins who have been designing backpacks for both their lines in the last few years, this trend is not one to go away just yet. If you need some help picking the right bag for you, we have a small inspiration board below.
Let us wrap up what we think is going to be the next big thing in Spring/ Summer 2015, Mod(ish) fashion. Many designers took cues from the late 60’s early 70’s in their collection this past week during New York Fashion Week showcasing a variety of high waisted wide leg pants, groovy colors/patterns, and Stg. Pepper style jackets/uniform. We couldn’t be more thrilled, next seasons fashion will be colorful and playful at best, which is always how fashion should be. Not ready to go full garment on these trends no problem. There were some subtle influences too, as in button down rompers, patterned mini dresses, and jumpers. Don’t take our word for it, check out the latest round up from New York Fashion Week.
There are so many things that we’ve been enjoying here at the Yetts offices. As a humpday treat we have three things that are making us smile.
1) Lorde on the cover of Elle Magazine
Besides being the queen of goth style, she is also a wonderful songstress and only 18. We aren’t just obsessed with her music, and style, but we love the make-under that she received in this editorial. Not that we aren’t a fan of her dark plum lipstick, ( Her MAC collaboration comes out soon) it’s just these toned down images show us a side of Ella (her real name) that we have yet to see. Along with the interview, Elle has given us a glimpse into a level headed teenage superstar that makes us love her more.
2) Jeremy Scott Spring/Summer 2015 Collection
NYFW SS15 has been a lot of the same, with a few standout collections by some of our favorites but one that takes the cake is Jeremy Scott. He just knows how to have fun with fashion and doesn’t take it too seriously. What is not to love when he collaborated with Miley Cyrus for his “dirty hippie” accessories? The looks that were coming down the run way had a very millennium meets 70’s feel. A combination of tie-dye, vinyl, and Shrek (yes you read right… SHREK) he pulled out a collection that also pulled aesthetics from the 90’s. As in baby doll dresses and vinyl. We certainly hope we see his muse, Rita Ora sporting these design in the near future.
3. Meghan Trainor and her new E.P.
Her body positive song, All about the bass hit number one this week as well as the release of her new e.p. named “Title.” The four song e.p. has a vintage throwback feel reminiscent of the late Amy Winehouse just way more bubble gum pop. The theme of women empowerment can also be found in songs like “Dear Husband” and “Title.” We love her look, her voice, and her message, and though we only get four songs from her at the moment we cannot wait to hear more.
We are obsessed with our Tribal and Suede Sweater for fall here at Wholesale Fashion Yetts. Not only is this a chic addition to your wardrobe, (I mean can you beat a combination of tribal design and lovely suede?) it is also the best way to keep warm all the way into winter. We paired up this sweater with a great black and white look for fall, including platform shoes that will be great for the rain and a floppy boho hat. We couldn’t forget the new “it” bag, the backpack to finish of the rest of the look. Makeup wise we chose a darker shade for fall but still on the nude side. What do you think?
New York Fashion Week just started but already designers are re-inventing Spring style. From peaches to grays the color spectrum on the runway is not what usually comes to mind when speaking of Spring. Though it’s too early to tell all the trends coming out of NY this week already we are seeing a good amount of sash tie robes, tops, and dresses. Also white sheer skirts seem to be popping up a lot, along with high front slits. If this first batch is any indication we have a lot of good things coming to us in the Spring. Below check out a few of our favorites.

In the early 90’s morning television was changed with the addition of a new teen TV show centered around 6 kids in high school. Besides the huge crush that the world ended up having on Zack (Mark Paul Gosslear) another highlight of the series was Kelly Kapowski, Zack’s cool, fashionable, sweet love interest. Yeah I loved the Zack and Kelly love story just as much as the next tween but what I really loved to see every week was Kelly’s cool outfits. From floral dresses to cropped tops she always seemed to look perfect while still maintaining a casual girl next door feel. We have rounded up a few of our favorite “Kelly” looks from our collections in case you are feeling nostalgic. For a detailed description check behind the cut.
Hope you guys all got an extra day of rest and now that it’s September are getting your wardrobe ready for the change. Not only will the leaves change color but the color scheme for fall will also be in full effect in a couple of weeks. Along with burgundy, dark browns, among other colors we are also pulling out our very favorite fall essentials. Here we have called out the top 4 fall essentials everyone should own.
1) Open Cardigan – These have slowly taken over a jacket in the last few years as a fall favorite. They can be chunky or thin, pocketed or without, and printed or solid. They are so versatile that picking your favorite one can be just as fun as putting together your new wardrobe.
2) Beanie- Nothing is better to keep your head warm,or hide a bad hair day, then a slouchy beanie.
3) Tall Boots – Tis the season to pair up your skinny jeans with your favorite fall boots. The look can also be completed over some knee high socks. This is always my favorite as there are so many great boots to choose from.
4) Chunky Sweaters- Of course you can layer but why not try for one go with the chunky cable sweater look. These are comfy and fashionable and have been re-invented this fall. Try them under some denim overalls to get the “it” fall look.
Hot off the heels off her new single Taylor Swift is an adult now. An accomplished singer songwriter and actress this 24 year old is slowly taking over the world, or at least pop music. If you are not a fan of T-Swift’s music no problem, but I think you will definitely be a fan of her current fashion choices. It seems that Taylor re-invents herself with every album, her last album Red had her sporting a red lip (which she has seem to maintained) and a retro look. She has ditched her long curly mop for a short bob and we are loving all the outfits she’s been sporting while walking around NY. Check out some of our “Taylor” pieces below the cut.
Nothing says cool as someone in a leather jacket, or at least that’s what The Fonz had us believing. Now through the years the leather jacket has been re-invented many times again to the point where now leather jackets can contain no leather at all, be cropped, and have a cute side zip. These are great times to be a “cool” girl. The Zip Moto Jacket is one of our favorite incarnations of this classic look. It’s effortless and even though I’m going to sound redundant the “cool” factor it brings your wardrobe is unparalleled to any other item of clothing. Check out our Wholesale Fashion Yetts picks below.
