    Bralette Styling Tips - Straight From The Celebrities

    These days it seems like celebrities are showing us more and more. While a nip-slip is still a major “oops!” in the business, bralettes are making it easier and easier to wear those revealing tops. Without ruining what your top has to offer, bralettes add a little something extra, and keep you right on trend. Here are our 5 favorite ways to wear a bralette!

    Add some fun details to any plain top

    Beyonce Bralette

    Kendall Jenner Bralette

    Queen Bey has killer style and she certainly knows how to style a bralette. This look is super simple to replicate and looks good on almost any body type. Just find a pretty bra that is worth showing off and then layer a loose fitting muscle tank overtop for a casual and chic look.

    Keep It Simple In Lace 

    Karrueche Bralette

     

    Never in a million years would you think of wearing a bra as a top but things have changed and there are ways to pull off this trend without baring it all. Pair a lacy bralette with a high waisted skirt or pants for a more pulled together look. Avoid showing your bellybutton if you can, it helps give the bralette more of a top look. 

    Go Bold And Add Just A Jacket

    Sarah Hyland Bralette

    Spice up a conservative blazer with a peekaboo from your bralette underneath. It's an easy way to add style and edge to your look without looking like you just came from the office.

    Stay Covered Up Under A Sheer Top

    Bras

     

    Show you're not afraid of being bold in this new style. While sheer may sound a little risque, a bralette is the perfect way to keep covered where you need to be. It's the perfect upgrade from a plain tank top.

     

    Bralettes As Tops

    Sylene Collage

     

    Show some skin with this new top trend. Pair your bralette with a high-waisted pencil skirt for a night out, or with jean cut-offs for a fun weekend look.

     

    Now that you are inspired to show off a little bra in your next outfit, you will need to update your lingerie drawer. Shop our bralettes by clicking here and feel free to come in for any styling suggestions!

  • 6 Bridal Shower Gifts Ideas

    unnamed-43
    As bridal shower and wedding invites begin to flood your inboxes this summer, we suggest that you start your shopping early to ensure you find the happy couple the perfect gift to celebrate their special day. When hunting for a shower gift that will wow the bride-to-be, try thinking outside the box and get the blushing bride something a little more personal, something you know she will use and love. Sure, you can't go wrong with giving her a gift off of her registry but finding something that is unique, thoughtful and perfectly suited for the bride is sure to stand out amongst the sea of gifts she will receive at her shower.

    Leave the generic gifts to the bride's elderly relatives and opt for something that you would want to recieve yourself. There are plenty of cheesy looking frames or other bridal nic-nacs out there but that doesn't mean your bride wants them! A good rule of thumb is to either stick to the registry or find a useful gift she will use in her new home, on her honeymoon or on her wedding day. We have put together a list of 6 items that any bride would absolutely love to receive at her bridal shower and all at an affordable price. Shop our top picks below!

    6 Bridal Shower Gifts

    1. Robe: Eberjey  // 2. Beach Bag: Miami Carry All   // 3. Bikini: Marysia  // 4. Personalized Pillows: Alexander Ferguson  // 5. Lingerie: Eberjey // 6. Garter: Hanky Panky

    1. Robe: Pick out a cute robe that the bride can wear on her wedding day. It will come in handy while getting her makeup and hair done on her big day and will be perfect for photo ops. She will also wear this robe long after the wedding day and will look back each time she wears it with fond memories.

    2. Beach Bag: If your bride to be is headed somewhere tropical on her honeymoon, think about giving her a honeymoon inspired gift. Buy a fun beach bag an fill it with towels, sunscreen and maybe even a new bikini!

    3. Bikini: Going with the honeymoon theme, find a binkini that you know that she will love and get great use out of while relaxing in paradise. White is always a great option for new brides as well!

    4.Personalized Pillows: Get personal and have a meaningful message monogrammed on a pillow that they can put on their bed or in their living room. We love these pillows by Alexander Ferguson because you can have pretty much anything you want monogrammed on the front.

    5. Lingerie Set: No bridal shower is complete without giving the bride lingerie or sleepwear to enjoy on her honeymoon. There are so many options when it comes to selecting lingerie for the bride, so make sure you use her style and taste as a judge and also the type of party you are attending. If you plan to give her risqué lingerie, you might want to save that for the bachelorette party instead of embarrassing her in front of her new mother-in-law.

    6. Garter: Every bride needs a garter to wear under her dress on the big day, so why not be the person to give it to her? Many people assume that the bride picks out her own garter, when in actuality she may have totally forgotten about it. Pick something that is fun but also fits your bride's style and personality.

  • 5 Things Every Bride Must Have For Their Honeymoon

    Planning a wedding can be extremely overwhelming. So much time and energy goes into planning the perfect day for you and your guests that many times planning the honeymoon can be completely neglected. Finishing up last minute details and seat arrangements are usually all that is on your mind days before the wedding day, which means that many brides completely forget about packing for their honeymoon or leave it until the last minute. So instead of leaving your packing to the last minute, get ahead of the game and plan out what you will pack along on your new adventure as a married couple. That is why we have come up with 5 Things Every Bride Must Have for their honeymoon. We hope these tips help you focus on your special day instead of stressing about packing a last minute bag.

    1. A versatile Bikini Screen Shot 2015-06-23 at 2.49.42 PM

    You should bring a few bikinis on your honeymoon but make sure to pack one that will be the star of the show. Since you are a blushing bride, you have to pack at least one white bikini and one that is a bandeau is even better. After all that wedding prep and getting a perfectly even tan, there is no use in ruining all of that hard work! We love this scalloped bandeau suit by Marysia. Perfect for your honeymoon escape!

    2. A Big Hat 
    jemima-hat-in-white-gold-by-melissa-odabash-6

    Since you are going to be in the sun for much of the day, you will want to pack a large brimmed hat to protect your skin. Of course it is important to protect your entire body from the sun by applying sunscreen frequently but it is even more important to cover your face. No wrinkles on this newlywed! We love this floppy hat by Mellissa Odabash.

    3. A Cover-Up

    A great coverup is essential on any beach getaway but especially on your honeymoon. Since you will be living in your swimsuit, you just need a great coverup to get you from the beach to lunch and back to your room. We love a great romper like this one by Eberjey, and its super easy to pack!

    3. Pretty Sleepwear570144675_510_large

    It's your honeymoon, so you have to pack pretty sleepwear and lingerie. Leave the old pjs and sweats at home because this is your time to really play up the sex appeal. We love this pretty lacy gown in a baby blue because it isn't over the top but it's just sexy enough.

    5. Sexy Lingerie
    l013-25-basque-18256-c_16336-2

    You just can't go on your honeymoon without packing along sexy lingerie. It's what honeymoon's were made of! Step outside of your comfort zone and pack something a little more risqué than usual. Something that will surprise your new hubby and make him super glad he married you! Try packing this lingerie set by L'Agent Provocateur.

    We wish you a lifetime of happiness and we hope you enjoy your honeymoon!

  • New Swimwear Designer Spotlight: Marysia

    Emily-Johnston-Anderson-7Meet the designer behind the new "it girl" swimwear line, Marysia.

    There is a new swimwear designer in town that we just can't get enough of. So good that we had to share. This is our first year carrying her coveted collection and it is already flying off the racks faster than we could have ever imagined.

    Maryisa Dobrazanska Reeves is the polish born designer behind this luxury swimwear brand and with her ballet and surfing backgrounds, she has created a swimwear line that is total poolside perfection. She launched her brand in 2009, focusing on executing perfectly designed silhouettes with premium fabrics. Growing up in a ballet leotard and a swimsuit during much of her younger years, gave Marysia the inspiration to create a swimsuit that was both extremely comfortable and wearable in the water and she certainly created that. When you see a Marysia suit you will know it. Her suits stand out on the racks and when you see one on the beach.

    Now, only 6 years later, her suits are seen in leading publications like Vouge, Harper's Bazaar, Shape, to name a few and her suits are also being worn by the likes of top celebrities and models. Her collection is carried in over 200 stores like Neiman Marcus, Intermix, Bloomingdale's, Shopbop, and Sylene. The brand has a strong following on social media with the help of a few blogstars donning her suits like Man Repeller, Gary Pepper Girl, Song of Style, Damsel in Dior and Always Judging.

    Her recent collection has been a total hit amongst all fashion icons but is priced so that any woman is able to wear her luxurious suits. So when you are shopping for your next beach vacation, consider packing along a Marysia suit along with you. It is sure to be a crowd pleaser!

  • Bras of Summer

    Summertime in DC is hot, like really really hot. And we not only have to deal with the summer heat but also the humidity that comes along with it. So when the temperatures rise, our wardrobes have to adapt with the weather so we can stay cool and dry.  Steamy temperatures call for strapless dresses, light t-shirts, muscle tanks and anything else that barely feels like you are wearing any clothing.

  • 2015 Guide To Wedding Dress Trends

    Wedding season is already in full swing and if you are getting ready to tie the knot this year and need a little last minute dress inspiration, we are here to help. Wedding dress trends have certainly changed over the years and this year is no acceptation. We are seeing everything from detachable skirts, long sleeve numbers and even crop tops. Check out our 2015 Guide To Wedding Dress Trends before you make you head out with your bridesmaids on your big shopping trip. We even have paired each dress with the correct undergarments that will work best underneath.

    Detached Wedding Skirts

    efa648d9605c1aa713f1ef73f3d2e296

    This is a new trend that we are seeing that we absolutely are in love with. It is pretty much a genius concept because you are able to get 2 very different looks out of one dress. Most brides wear the skirt for the ceremony and then remove it for the reception and dancing. This style looks fabulous in photos and always leaves the guests talking.

    Undergarments to wear under a dress with a detachable skirt, really depend on what the underlying dress material is made of. If you were to wear a sheer dress like pictured above, you may want to opt for our barely there style thong and sew in bra cups in the bust.

    Long Sleeve Dresses

    julie-vino-wedding-dresses-2-06032014nz

    Long sleeved dresses are making a comeback and in a big way. We saw tons of long sleeved frocks hit the runway at bridal fashion week and we can't get enough of the lace styles we saw. The plunging v-neck and the gorgeous lace detailing gives this dress a total wow-factor. Jaws will drop when you walk down the isle in this gorgeous silhouette.

    This dress can be tricky to find the right undergarments that will work perfectly but that is why it is essential to bring you dress into your lingerie store to make sure they fit and look perfectly. We would recommend wearing our stick on bra that gives you coverage and support, using fashion tape to make sure there are no "nip slips" and then wearing our commando thong or a pair of spanx to hold you in all night long.

    Sheer Overlays

    4

    This dress is absolutely breathtaking and the sheer overlay really pushes this already gorgeous gown over the top. The skirt is light and airy and the top has the perfect amount of sexy and sweet going on. Perfect for an outdoor garden wedding in the summer.

    We love a flowing skirt like this because you can actually wear undergarments underneath! We recommend getting fitted for a bustier top, to help enhance your small waistline and also give your breasts and extra lift.

    Crop Tops

    9

    Crop top gowns were something we never thought we would see walking down the isle but to our surprise they have been popping up everywhere. And if you have a tight and whittled waist, we say go for it but make sure that you pick a classy skirt to accompany your tiny top.  We love the way this full ball gown skirt is paired with a delicate lace, long sleeved crop top. It is the perfect mix of edge and elegance.

    Finding a bra that will work under this top will be tricky but not impossible. Look for a nude strapless bra or even the nu-bra would work well under a sheer top like this. And since the skirt is so full, you are free to wear whatever you like underneath but we suggest these.

    Off The Shoulder Necklines

    marchesa-wedding-dresses-spring-2015-016

    If you are going for a classic and elegant bridal look, this is the dress for you. It super chic and has even has a touch of old hollywood glamor to it. This neckline is pure perfection.

    We highly recommend a corset for this dress, it will suck in your waist and push your breasts up to create the perfect amount of lust worthy cleavage. Keep the underwear simple and smooth under this dress, you don't want any panty lines showing through the sheer fabric.

    Floral Bridesmaid Dresses

    ppscouture2015_0001

    We love how much bridesmaid trends have changed over the past few years. We are seeing many brides choosing gorgeous floral prints or even mixing different floral patterns to create a look that is cohesive but not so matchy-matchy. So many brides are letting each bridesmaid find a look or cut that suits them best and we think that bridesmaids are absolutely thrilled about this. Because nothing is worse than having to purchase an expensive dress that you look awful in and will never wear again.

    Depending on the cut of the floral gown you choose, you will have to find undergarments that will compliment what you will be wearing. It is best to bring your dress into your local shop to try on a few selections of bras and undies, to make sure you find the perfect match.

     

    Blush Bridesmaid Dresses

    Lisa-O-Dwyer-Frances-and-Thomas-100-12

    Blush is a color we have seen popping up a lot over the past two years. It is light, looks good on most skin tones and looks absolutely stunning in photos. We are obsessed with the necklines on these bridesmaid dresses above, this bride must have some serious style!

    A strapless bra will work best with a neckline like this, any other type of bra will peek through and you do not want that. If you are concerned about your tummy not being as flat as you would like, throw on some shapewear and call it a day!

    For all of your bridal party fitting needs, make an appointment at Sylene and we will help you find the perfect underpinnings for your special day!

  • 2015 Summer Beach Essentials

    Beach rentals, sandy toes, and cocktails with those pink little umbrellas await you. But before you can hit the beach you will need to put together a well packed bag of items that will get you from the beach to fancy dinners in town.  We have put together a guide to help you pack light and smart - so much so that you may even have room to bring a few souvenirs home as well.  Follow our guide to 2015 Summer Beach Essentials and the only care you will have is where to position your chair on the beach.

    White Linen Shirt

    717-long-shirt-1093-c_19834

    A lightweight cotton shirt in a neutral color is essential for summer travel. Light-weight linen is the perfect packing material and will go with almost anything. We love this one by Luna Luz because it can be worn belted as a dress or you can wear it over your bikini to the beach. Super versatile!

    Tunics

    nl5ge39-tunic-4587-c_16413

    Tunics are essential for summertime travel because they are long enough to be worn as a dress, as a coverup and also short enough to wear over leggings or pants when it gets cooler. We love this one by Nanette Lepore Swim because of its super cute pockets and embroidery around the neck.

    07-7768-nightdrs-5212-c_18724

    This light and gauzy tunic is dressy enough to be worn to dinner with wedges or can be worn over your suit when you head to claim your spot at the beach. It is also a bonus that the fabric is  super light weight, so you know it won't take up much room in your suitcase.

    Swimsuits

    tt5ft89-bralette-3843-c_18098

    How cute is Trina Turk's Fiji feathers print bikini? We love this suit because it is both flirty and sporty, which is perfect when you are looking to save space packing. It will hold up to swimming and surfing but also will make heads turn when you are lounging by the pool.

    278-770-round-19014-c_15544

    One pieces are back in a big way this summer and we think it is essential to pack at least one of them when traveling. We love this one by Karla Coletto because the fringe detail is eye catching and the construction of the suit holds you in, in all of the right places. Talk about a figure flattering suit!

    Rompers

    justine-stripe-jumpsuit-21465-c_11492

    Pack a romper like this one and we promise you will find yourself wearing it multiple times. Great for lounging, shopping, trips to the beach and even for a night out. Just accessorize it differently and you have an entirely different look!

    wc1453nr-nina-17781-c_19334

    This little romper by Eberjey is cute as a button! Although it may not be as versatile as some of the other options, it does come in handy as something to throw on for walks to the beach, the pool or to lunch in the middle of the day.

    Hats

    elle-cowboy-hat-4902-c_6107

    It is imperative that you protect your skin with a hat this summer. You still need to load on the sunscreen but throw on a cute hat and you will protect your face from the harmful UV rays that you will be basking in. We love this cowboy hat from Mellissa Odabash because it gives off a bit of a western flare, which is super hot right now. Throw it in your carry on and you are good to go!

    Sandals

    glitter-1026-c_6210

    Everyone knows that sandals are essential for summertime but sometimes finding a sandal that is both comfy and cute is hard to come by. We love the flops by Ipanema because they are excellent at making footwear for both of these categories!
