Taking cues this week from Huide, our art director, general manager, and all-around styling pro (if you follow our Instagram Stories you definitely know her already!)
We asked her to pick out the Sunroom pieces she's loving most this month (and how she's wearing them...)
Shop Huide's Picks
1. Innika Choo
is one of my personal favorite designers at Sunroom. I love her for how versatile, feminine, and fun her pieces are. When considering something to add to my own wardrobe, I like to imagine it first in how many ways it can be styled. I love that several of the Innika Choo styles can be worn backwards. This extends the life of the garment in a wardrobe and really just creates more options (which is never a bad thing!)
I think it’s a good reminder not to get stuck in the original “intention” of how a garment should be worn. Get creative! Turn things around, try adding a belt, roll a sleeve or a hem to change the proportion to make more sense for you.
First up, I’ve chosen the Hugh Jesmok dress
, in beautiful navy embroidered plaid. I’ve styled it two ways, worn backward (pictured above!) — unbelted, and paired with a Veja sneaker
for something casual, fun, and breezy...
2. The second "dressier" option
is worn the opposite way and punctuated with a belt and velvet Le Monde Beryl mule
. Belting something on your natural waist and pairing it with a dressier shoe is a really easy way to elevate the casual linen fabric and give it a bit of textured dimension.
3. Feminine Meets Masculine:
"I am a sucker for any workwear-inspired chore jacket or military shirt, and in my opinion few designers have mastered the cool tomboy vibe like Caron Callahan
. Her pieces marry timeless/utilitarian shapes with soft modern details and a beautiful muted color palette. This rose Jasper popover jacket/shirt
is one of my current faves particularly when it’s paired with different textures (the fabric is a heavier chino so I love to show it with soft and floaty textures.) We’re styling it with Chimalas
and Le Monde Beryl’s velvet smoking loafer
(plus Caron’s great navy and gray wool coat
for an extra layer option!)
I’d also love to wear it unbuttoned over a silk slip dress
, paired with sneakers…or maybe even with a pair of silk trousers
4. Dressed-down Cashmere:
"Yes, cashmere is incredibly luxurious…but when paired with casual silhouettes it feels very effortless and cool (it’s also so great to wear while you’re traveling…wrinkleproof and easy for when you need to cozy up.)
I’ve been wearing these new cashmere pieces by Evam Eva
and Enza Costa
in a few ways — monochromatic, paired with denim, and then layered up..."
5. I really love a fun, textural pop of color. So these new Dezso Mexican friendship bracelets
were a natural choice. They're an elevated take on the handmade travel pieces you’d pick up someplace special, weaving in gemstones and 18k rose gold.
I love the somewhat ironic juxtaposition of taking a familiar, casual trinket and transforming it into something fine and rare. They look great stacked with each other and also layered with gold bracelets — color, texture, and fun dimension!
6. I love this belt!
I have it in both colors and am convinced there’s nothing it doesn’t work with — add it on top of a dress or jacket that needs a waist, wrap it around jeans (once or twice!), or maybe even wrap it around the band of a hat to give it a new personality!
