Self Care Tips for Winter Blues

on February 24, 2020

The winter blues can find anyone at times, no matter how well we think we’re avoiding it . It can come in many forms from that feeling of just being down to simply wanting to hibernate until it’s Spring. This is something we can feel isolated by but you might be surprised to hear that some of those closest to you feel the same way. Here are some of our tips to change that “gloomy mood”

  • Wear fun, bright colors – Throw on a fun, funky, and/or bright piece in your wardrobe to help brighten up your day from the start! Wearing brighter colors can change one’s mood in the blink of an eye. 
  • Take time for yourself – Many of us have kids (fur-covered or otherwise), work, a partner, friends, obligations, and a myriad of other things happening all at once, which often does not leave us with more than a few seconds to ourselves. It can sometimes reach a point where it feels that if we aren’t up and running, the house may literally fall apart. However, it’s important to take that ‘me’ time to yourself daily at least once a day just to keep you at your finest whether it’s to watch a favorite show or take a bath with a glass of wine. 
  • Try new things – This can be anything at all for you and the family, you and a friend, or just you and yourself. Going to that new restaurant you’ve wanted to try or heading out to see that new comedy with your girls can surely help lift your spirits. Break the routine and find that hint of vibrancy only the element of surprise can add!
  • Plan a trip – It doesn’t have to be to Cancun or Paris but a trip to the nearest beach for the day or a weekend in the mountains where you and/or your loved ones can go to get away from the stressors of daily life might be just the ticket. This can create both something to look forward to and an opportunity for you to get out of your everyday environment.
  • Exercise- Whether you are a Yoga fan or marathon lover, at least 10 minutes of any exercise can help change those negative thought patterns instantly.

Always remember that you are not alone, and that there are so many people out there rooting for you. As a small company that is built on helping women embrace the beautiful individuals they are, we believe that self-love comes from both within yourself and the support you feel from the community around you. We want you to know that, whatever the season, we are with you 100% of the way ! #Fashom #BetterAsIam

Balancing sporty, trendy, and even elegant sounds like a lot of work, right? Think again .

Sporty details are finding their way into everything from casual athleisure to evening wear this season, so we have come up with a few easy ways to incorporate these baller-ready elements into your wardrobe right now. From mesh tops to sweatshirt dresses, now is the time to get ‘physical’ (If you were around during the 80’s, you’ll immediately picture Olivia-Newton John singing in neon) and sport-up your wardrobe!

Starting from the bottom, you cannot go wrong with track pants this season! It is an absolute snap to style these with a white tank top and a matching hoodie or teddy jacket. Depending on how formal or casual you want this look to be, you can also throw on a pair of stilettos to help take your look from athleisure to ath-luxe! Request Recommendation: Bloom Taylor Side Stripe Leggings

Everyone loves dresses because they are one and done staples for a simple look. There are three styles that are super on-trend right now: oversized sports jerseys, t-shirt dresses, and sweatshirt dresses but the one that has us obsessed is the sports jerseys look! This can easily go from glam with a sequined clutch to casual with platform sneakers. To elevate this ensemble to another level, try pairing it with your fav pumps and oversized hoops! Request Suggestion: Chris and Carol Sleeve Trim Tunic

Traditional sweatshirts are great for a lounge day but they can also carry over into a casual-chic outing with friends. Mixed print hoodies are a great choice because they can be worn with faux-leather leggings or even bright neon jeans to create a bold yet pulled-together sport inspired look. Hoodies can also be knotted to the side to add a little waist definition and help show off your curves! Request Suggestion: Panamex: Francie Mixed Media Hoodie

A fun athletic feature you can easily add to your workwear collection is a rugby-inspired blazer with shoulder pads! You can throw this on over a jewel-tone sheath dress and pair it with your most loved pumps. However, you can just as simply pair this piece over a good graphic tee and jeans for a super casual-chic vibe! Request Suggestion: Renee C Plaid Blazer Jacket

From business casual to cocktail, you can incorporate fun sporty details into almost any area of your look right now. We all love our yoga pants and favorite hoodie, but now we have a previously rare opportunity to wear them in so many different ways, whether that be sexy, casual, or elegant!

Galentine’s Day Love

on February 9, 2020

Valentine’s Day is around the corner and we’re already feeling the love in the air. Whether or not you’re coupled up on February 14th, it’s the perfect opportunity to spend some quality time with loved ones (yes, even the four-legged, furry kind!). One of our favorite ways to share the love is by planning something special with our girlfriends aka our Galentine’s. From a ladies luncheon to girl’s night out on the dance floor or even, a rom-com marathon, here are five styles we’re loving this month.  

If you want a little edge to your standard GNO ensemble, consider a classic little black dress. It might seem simple, but LBDs can also be a glamorous when amped up with the right accessories. Consider styling yours with a bright red pump or an animal print clutch. Request Suggestion: Our Naked Zebra: Flutter Sleeve Shift Dress

A trend we love that shows no signs of slowing down are slip skirts – who can beat comfy and chic?! Our favorite way to style them is paired with a chunky, oversized V-neck sweater, but you can just as easily pair one with crisp, classic button down a la Audrey Hepburn. Request Suggestion: Our Les Amis Midi Skirt

Feeling bold? Try a bright statement piece! A bold pop of color will automatically give you the confidence to rock something you normally wouldn’t! Worried you won’t be able to pull it off? Keep the rest of your outfit simple. Request Suggestion: Very J Wide Legged Pant

If your idea of the perfect Valentine’s Day is a movie marathon (aka watching The Notebook for the 20th time), you’ll want something cute and cozy. It’s easy to feel warm when watching Ryan Gosling portray the perfect boyfriend, but those frigid winter temps outside mean you’ll need a bit more coverage. Keep it effortless with a simple cardigan. Request Suggestion: Natural Life Intermingle Waffle Hacci Cardigan

For those with the luxury of a warmer climate in February (or have an upcoming vacation to daydream about!), nothing is more flattering than a light faux-wrap dress? Perfect for a lunch or brunch with friends, this wardrobe staple can be classic or sexy depending on how you style it. Of course, since it is Valentine’s Day, we loving the idea of softer, pink tones. Request Suggestion: Chris & Carol Woven Floral Sleeveless Midi Dress

No matter how you choose to celebrate the season of love, you’ll be sure to warm the hearts of those around you in any of these styles!

Age of Aquarius

on January 27, 2020

People who are born between January 21st and February 20th fall under the zodiac sign of Aquarius; they are independent, easy-going, and have great style. Their style is so unique that you can probably spot an Aquarian simply by how they dress! Aquarians always like their style to stand out but if you’re a fellow Aquarian in need of some styling inspiration during your season (or even if you’re not but you just like their style ), we’re here to help with a few tips on how to incorporate some of the hottest trends into your wardrobe! 

(Retrieved from Unsplash) 

Wild Cat

    Animal print items are a must for Aquarians this season. Luckily, chic animal prints are everywhere right now and come in many forms including coats, shirts, skirts, dresses, accessories, and pants. Our favorite four-legged inspired print for Aquaruius though is leopard because it can be dressed up or down for any occasion! A tailored leopard print dress is great for a night out but can also transition into work the next day by either layering it under a bold colored blazer or layering it under a fitted black turtleneck with pumps and a bright clutch! 

Cozy Chic

    Aquarians are known to prioritize comfort whilst still keeping their outfits stylish. A simple way to do this and incorporate the fun texture trend simultaneously is by pairing a velvet skirt with a slightly oversized printed knit sweater and over-the-knee boots! We all want to feel good in the clothes we wear but we admire Aquarians so much in this particular regard because they have a particular talent for making comfortable look effortlessly cute.

Turquoise Dreams 

     Each Zodiac sign tends to be associated with a color and, although there is some debate over the definitive one for each sign, turquoise is the most common hue that pops us for Aquaurius. This makes perfect sense for the water sign that is Aquarius because blue hues are most linked to the look of water and something brighter or bolder than the basic navy fits in perfectly with their personality. Turquoise can range from a summer to a winter color depending on how it’s styled and is a great replacement if you’re looking for a color to make a look pop that is not red. You can pull this in with some chunky turquoise jewelry on an all-black outfit, a fitted sweater/turtleneck tucked into a striped/animal print skirt, or just add a touch by throwing on a turquoise scarf with a fun printed top and faux leather leggings! 

The Aquarian sense of style is just as strong as they are. Whether they are drawing from their inner animal, cozying up a cool trend, or bringing the boldness with a pop of turquoise, we can all find a little inspiration by looking to the amazing Aquarians. All of us here on the Fashom team wish every Aquarian a very happy birthday!

Postively Productive

on January 22, 2020

January may be most known as the time when we make the strongest efforts towards setting our intentions for the year or following through on our new year resolutions…before they tend to drop off of our radar somewhere towards the end of the month. Most of these efforts though are typically focused on our physical appearance because we are surrounded by messages that tell us ‘we’ll feel better at this weight’ or ‘happier at this size’, which is why this month here at FASHOM we are giving you some intention-inspiration straight from our amazing staff on what we are focusing on this year; improvements for ourselves, and no one else. In this blog, we’re honing in on the second-most given response by our staff on what they would like to work on for themselves this year. The answer in this case was improving upon productivity.

There are some days where we wake up in the morning and feel like we can conquer the world with an abounding energy, and yet by the time we go to bed at night, we find there are another 1,000 things left to do. Sometimes this is because we set too many goals for ourselves to fit into just one day and sometimes it is because we find ourselves falling into unproductive habits like starting one thing but not finishing it before moving onto something else or getting distracted easily by our phones. So here are a few tips on how we have started on our productivity goals both at work and at home:

1. Make sleep a priority – Many of us can view sleep as something that can easily be pushed back to fit the schedule we want but what we don’t realize is that putting off sleep can also make us exhausted the next day and seriously impact our productivity. This can then make us fall behind on our regular workload for the day and set a continuous, vicious cycle. Instead of forcing yourself to stay up a few more hours that night, try waking up an hour or two earlier the next morning to help get a jump on the day and leave your sleep schedule in tact.  

2. Set 1 major goal and 1 minor goal each day – Pick one big thing you want to get done for the day (perhaps something for work) and then one small goal for the day (something as simple as picking up vitamins or doing the towel-load of your laundry). What this can do is help you prioritise what you need to get done and what you want to get done whilst also making sure you go to bed feeling like you have achieved something and without overwhelming yourself by trying to do too many things. 

3. Give yourself deadlines – Set specific times you want to accomplish your tasks by each day. When you set a deadline in which to complete a goal by, you are making that goal a focus and can help limit the amount of times you could be distracted throughout the day until your goals have been accomplished.

Knack for Knits

on January 15, 2020

We all await that time of year where we can pull out our cozy knits for our everyday activities whether it be work, a night out, or just curling up by the fire and binge watching our favorite new series  and we are finally right at peak comfy weather. Knits are effortless and comfortable but have also shown up in so many more forms than just the usual oversized sweater this season. From cardigans to sweater dresses, we’re here to highlight all the stylish ways you can wear knits this winter!

Our favorite sweaters have been cropped this season either in length or by sleeves. We adore this chic variation on the classic sweater from Papermoon, which can be worn with or without a shirt underneath to casual or formal occasions. Wearing this style can be simple—just throw on a nice pair of high waisted black jeans or printed skirt, a pair of pumps, and you’re ready for anything!

Sweater Dresses: 

Often thought of as more on the casual side, knits can also be easily worn to formal events as we’ve seen on many runways. Sweater dresses are comfortable and versatile enough that they can be worn from day to night without batting a lash, like this one from Chris & Carol! We’re all for the sweater dress trend, which can be styled with an oversized belt and/or knee-high boots.

Another favorite trend this season is knit cardigans. Traditionally worn over a shirt or blouse, a great new way of styling these classic pieces is by buttoning them up and wearing them alone. Whether you wear them on or off-the-shoulder, they look put together and give your wardrobe a fresh spin!

This sweater season, we’ve seen knits come in all different shapes, colors, and fabrics. From co-rd knits in bright neon to puff sleeves to button downs to half zips, knits can be worn to any event whether it is easy and laid back or elegant and chic. Warm knits remain one of the most comfortable items to wear and only take an extra few seconds to make perfect for any occasion!

Mindfulness Tips for a More Mindful You

on January 12, 2020

After New Years, it seems everywhere starts to scream ‘new year, new you’ with all sorts of ways on how to change your body but here at FASHOM, we believe you are beautiful as you are. We all have room for improvement in ways however these need to be done for you and your peace of mind, not because you are trying to achieve something someone else is telling you that you should be trying to achieve. So, this month, we went around the office here and asked everyone what they would like to work on for themselves throughout this year. The number one answer we received was how to be more mindful at work. 

As a start-up, it can be very hard to keep yourself in-check during the busier times of the day when you are overwhelmed with responsibilities and have to wear multiple hats but we put together some easy and practical tips on how to be a little more mindful whether its before, during, or after work: 


1: Bring your attention to your breathing: Focusing on your breathing doesn’t mean you have to sit down and meditate each time but just taking attention away from our minds to breathe can lower stress and help center you. This can be done for even just 5 – 10 seconds a few times a day.* 


2: Bring your attention to things around you: Stop and look at a plant or even a chair for a few seconds; this will break your thinking pattern and help reset it. Many of us here have used this technique when we feel like we might be hitting a wall with something or feel like we’re running low on ideas.*


3: Take short walking breaks: When possible, take a quick stroll around the office or outside and remove your thinking self from the environment. This is also an easy way to help get in a little movement throughout the day if you have been sitting or standing in one place for a long period of time.*


4: Meditate: If there are facilities like a break room or even a meeting room, you can take 5 or 10 minutes to do a quick meditation session even just before/after a lunch break. You can find a lot of short, guided meditation apps and videos on the web that you can follow as a daily practice. Here at FASHOM, we try to practice 10 -15 minutes together a few times a week.*

The idea of being mindful is not to stop thinking or to sit down and meditate for hours but to more so just disengage from a mindset that is only making us hit a wall or more frustrated so we can be more aware of life around us.

Layer Love

on January 8, 2020

     Post-holiday winter season is finally here, which means you can finally put away all the extra glitter and sequins, and start focusing on your everyday looks as you slip into your everyday routine once again (even if we wish we still had at least another week off). If you’re like me, you definitely want to continue living your best, ‘Hot Girl Summer’ life all year long. However, there are many fun and unexpected ways to layer pieces for these cooler months of the year. Wearing layers doesn’t have to be as heavy or complex as it may sound, so here are a few tips from our stylists at FASHOM with easy yet stylish ways to layer this season (featuring some of our new arrivals!):
