From the Barre to the Boulevard: Sarah Edition


IMG_0379_adj


Our December It Girl is melting anything in her path! If you've been trying to beat the holiday calorie hangover then you might have experienced our weighted series designed by Sarah, this month's instructor extraordinaire. When she's not busy calculating ways to make your biceps feel that blazing burn, she's trying out fabulous fashion looks. Okay, maybe that last part isn't entirely true but she is certainly nailing the modeling thing here.

IMG_0332_adj

I styled Sarah in an outfit she said she wouldn't normally wear. Come again? With a chiseled physique like hers I couldn't believe she had yet to try a body-con dress! I was clearly vicariously living through her as A-line dresses are what suit me best, so getting her in this sleek, sexy meets street silhouette was a win for both of us.

IMG_0361_adj


As you can see they were made for each other; even right down to the slate gray color that really complemented her vibrant red locks and perfect pout. I put this together as an effortless New Year's Eve look when your attire doesn't have to be 100% fancy but you still want to pull out all the stops. Adding the leather jacket on top is a great way to utilize a piece of everyday outerwear while adding an overall edge to your ensemble. {Make sure if you try this your leather jacket is a bit on the fitted side to keep the look polished and feminine. If you put a very bulky leather on top of such a sleek style you will lose the balance.} Finishing things off with the perfect details of a killer pair of heels, glitzy bracelets and a sophisticated clutch.

 IMG_0450_adj


PSA! If you have a very streamlined outfit like this, opt for a smaller bag. Too many times I see women with a giant handbag made for daytime/work and they will wear it out in the evening with a refined look such as this. Even if it is the best name brand {I'm looking at you Louis V and Chanel} leave it at home and go for a smaller, more cohesive accessory like a handheld or envelope clutch. The bigger bags ruin the flow of the outfit and compete with the sleekness of the outfit. So clutch a clutch! It will take your night out look to level 100.

Beyond this haute to trot NYE look, there has also been some new arrivals in the Local Barre retail department. If you're looking for leggings that pull their inspiration from the Swarovski ball that drops in Times Square, look no further. LB's uptown, west and downtown locations have these glittery bottoms and more to get you ready to sweat in style.

From the Barre to the Boulevard: Meghan Edition


IMG_9508_adj


It's not difficult to get inspired by our barretenders. They're fun, fearless and somehow make eight counts sound inviting. This month's "It Girl" Meghan kills it in class but once she puts her grippy shoes away it's all about running after her two little ones.

IMG_9543_adj

Going from the barre to mom life can be an endless cycle of never wearing real pants! But when you've got a physique that was earned through working every last muscle it's important to have wardrobe pieces to accentuate that while still working with your lifestyle.

IMG_9521_adj


Enter a hot pair of jeans. From the playground to cocktails a great dose of denim will make you feel confident while having endless styling potential. Black jeans in particular can add an edge to daytime garb like this supple plaid shirt, and can also add a glamorous air when paired with heels for night. The rips in these are are playful, and are frayed beautifully to look like delicate fringe. If you've ever thought you couldn't do ripped denim because it comes across too youthful, think again. These are chic.

 IMG_9532_adj


Finishing off this look is a textured topper with a leather jacket silhouette. The combination of strong and soft work beautifully here and again can be styled many ways. Wear a jacket like this as shown with jeans, over a dress with tights and ankle boots or with winter white trousers to really make a statement. The versatility of styling key pieces is essential when you're a mom with maybe ten minutes to get ready!

Jacket, plaid shirt and jeans all from our new neighbors, contemporary clothing store Alba Boutique, located on Washington Street between 7th and 8th.

From the Barre to the Boulevard: Kim Edition



Kim_Gear_1_adj


We're closing out another amazing month, with another amazing "It-Girl". Kim rocked October from the bike to the barre. When she hit the streets in these styles though, she was definitely turning heads! It was all about creating petite-friendly looks for Kim's small frame while also tapping into the hottest Fall trends.

Kim_Gear_4_adj

Even if your vision isn't 20/20 you would be remiss not to notice that plaids and checks are the season's print du jour. Adding one into your wardrobe feels completely festive and gives your autumn attire something special. However, when you are on the smaller side, if these prints are on the wrong cut of fabric, they can look overwhelming or even dowdy. Sinful if you ask me, especially for how hard this hot mommy of two works to keep her physique svelte and toned.

Kim_Gear_2_adj




I found her the perfect buffalo check blanket sweater {by Bar III via Macy's} that fits in all the right places while still being a bit dramatic. The sleeves are the key factor here to keeping her proportion in check {no pun intended} and allowing this piece to be flouncy at the hem. 

 Kim_Gear_5_adj


This sweater was so versatile adding so much to a jeans, tee, and knee-high boots ensemble for day and perfectly framing a wine hued mini-dress for night. Isn't that what we all want from our wardrobe, pieces that do double duty just like this fab barre-tender ;)

From the Barre to the Boulevard: Janelle Edition


IMG_7386_adj_web


Here comes the new season and with it all the styles we love! If you've been working hard at the barre and let's be real if you've taken a class taught by "It Girl" Janelle, then you're definitely working hard. Her tone has a sly way of making you think what you're about to do isn't that hard and then 30 seconds later you feel the burn. Tricky, tricky! But when you emerge with a perky booty and feel toned all over, who can complain? Your leather pants will be applauding you for your efforts. If you don't have a pair, get on it. They are a great alternative to jeans and hug in all the right places while adding a subtle edginess to all you pair them with.

IMG_7387_adj_web

I styled Janelle in the bottom of the season alongside a color combination that screams autumn. Olive + Aubergine {or really any family member on the red wine scale} are colors we don't see too much in the summer and styling them together for fall really makes a refreshing impact. This cardigan is fun with it's chunky knit and textured fringe. You can throw it over tons of tanks, dresses or even a leather croptop for fun ;) Booties with a nice, low, thick heel are essential. They tend to be more comfortable and can work with so many items in your wardrobe. If you already have a great neutral pair in your repertoire, I advise you to go with an eye-catching color like these by Ted Baker. You would be surprised how many looks they can go with!

IMG_7373_adj_web




Finally, finish things off with a great accessory that literally spells it out for you. This cheeky little clutch {by Kate Spade! Yes, Kate Spade finally made it's way to Hoboken!} can go with leather pants to a glam evening look, there are so many styling possibilities.

 IMG_7349_adj_web


All these items are from neighborhood store Two Heathers! You can find their boutique at 331 Washington Street.

From the Barre to the Boulevard: Robert Edition


Robert_Gear_2_adj


It's no surprise the female barretenders at Local Barre know how to bring it. If you haven't been following along, or had the pleasure of taking one of his classes, then you may not know Robert! He's the fella of the bunch and today he's serving up some serious swag.

Robert_Gear_1_adj

With fall on the way, it only seemed right to have him don pieces that are classically male with a modern touch. I kept in mind Robert is a recent grad with a limited budget and created his look from places he can frequent in the future. A designer shirt for half the price came from TJ Maxx and is perfect for now and later. Worn with colored denim {trend alert for the gents for fall!} from Gap, the button down has a subtle print that makes it eye-catching to wear on its own but also creates interest when layered under a sweater for cooler temperatures. Back to that colored denim tid bit, it may seem like a little out of most guys comfort zone, but try going for a casual color like olive or not-so-bright cranberry. When pairing them, just treat them like they are regular blue jeans and you will be surprised at how easy it is to style them.

Robert_Gear_3_adj




The finishing touches here are items that can be worn on repeat. Cool textured sneakers that help Robert give his cross trainers a welcomed break and a luxe-looking knit sweater that can be thrown over almost anything, both came from Banana Republic. {The sweater at 40% off!} This footwear and zip-cardigan combo is a simple way for guy to be on point in the style department while not looking like he took things too seriously. The soft briefcase is the final piece that brings everything together another designer score for half the price from TJ Maxx. Hand-held or carried by the shoulder strap this neutral colored necessity isn't too stuffy and channels just the right amount of ease a guy like Robert needs.

From the Barre to the Boulevard: Jessica Edition


Jessica_Gear_1_adj_WEB


If you're looking for some mid-summer night's motivation, July's It Girl Jessica, is serving it straight up. Toned beyond words, her body hits the barre hard and it shows. So when you work out hard you need to play hard in the world of style. This is where some show-stopping beachwear has a moment. A white bathing suit from, wait for it, Target! This piece looks exquisite against the golden tones of her skin. Yet, the real gold tones come from the add ons. Taking a bikini and elevating to "a-look" are, a gorgeous sarong with sequin embellishment and gilded jewelry from local treasure chest Aaraa Accessories. This is a perfect ensemble for hanging at a beach bar or attending a pool party where dressed can meet undressed when the heat is on. Some like it hot and this look is scalding.

All that glute work in class is good for something when it comes time to showstop in shorts! A printed pair plus a textured top are the recipe for a heatwave. If you're ready to show the core, in an non-Britney circa 99 way, wearing a bandeau under a sheer piece like this is the perfect peek!

From the Barre to the Boulevard: Lauren Edition


15LBW01_Lauren_Gear_4


The Barre to the Boulevard series are mainly to show you how to take the beautiful gear LB has in their retail offering and give you ways to wear it through out your busy day. Well guess what else needs to go from the barre to the blvd? That rockin' bod you've been toning up. So June's "ItGirl" Lauren was styled in a few current summer favorites from Townhouse Boutique in Hoboken. If you want to have sun-kissed sculpted shoulders, a strapless number is the route to go. This modern jumpsuit can be worn casually or can be dressed up to various degrees depending on the accessories.

Style tip: give wide leg silhouettes {like this} some love with the perfect height of a wedge.

From the Barre to the Boulevard: Donielle Edition


15LBW01_Donielle_Gear_5


More than just a tee, this Ever Zip Back Top May "It-Girl" Donielle is sporting is pretty flexible. It's effortless shape makes it an excellent choice for those lengthy barre moves but it also can be worn as a true top emphasizing a sporty charm. When worn with oil slick printed leggings and barre socks, this look means it's time to get down to business and feel the burn.

When a more casual pair of athletic pants are thrown on, a little tucking of the top, accessorizing with some sparkle and some spring in the step, this becomes an adorable street chic outfit all your friends will be wanting to pull off!

All pieces available at local barre retail locations.
