Wear it and Be Free

My inner hippie is humming a happy tune these days, and it’s not only because wintry weather calls for lots of layering and plenty of snuggling. A longtime fan of the Free People brand (freepeople.com), I was delighted to receive their latest catalogue for Resort 2012. Remaining true to its bohemian roots, the brand has branched out every so slightly to up the urban ante and broaden their fan base. The catalog features cool girls from coast to coast, a perfect way to represent their unique style. Neon cropped tee’s and destroyed denim cut-offs is seriously LA; New York girls hail cabs in teeny-tiny denim dresses and totally chic flats.

Free People’s pricing is a little on the steeper end considering its target audience. That said, investing in one or two pieces each season can yield high returns; pair a $128 FP sweater with an otherwise unremarkable outfit and you’ll still get plenty of compliments. Trust me, I’ve done it. A lot. Check out their catalogue here: and have fun shopping its pages directly. Here are some of my favorites:

Bella Donna Dress
This  is oversized for an easy fit but dangerously sexy with its inherent see-thru factor, high-low hem, and deep V-neck. In the summer, you can pull it on over a barely-there black slip as styled here, adding plenty of accessories. For now, you can wear it to a house party in your building, paired with leggings, flat boots, and lots of dark eyeliner. $129, freepeople.com.

Lace Rodeo Skirt
Okay, so it’s very LA. But the feminine appeal of this , polished off with denim detailing, is just irresistible. It certainly screams warm weather, so you’ll have to wait to wear this until April or May if you get the ivory. (Unless you have plans to skip town!) If you opt for black, it’s a great option that can be worked into your current wardrobe with the addition of a cashmere sweater, wintry flats, and thick tights. Either way, this is a classic Free People showstopper that you will not regret purchasing, no matter how long it has to hang idly in your closet. $168, freepeople.com.

Patriot Ankle Boot
Surprisingly well-priced for their superior quality and styling, these distressed  offer just enough of a heel while still being appropriate for days spent walking all over this city. Designed by Jeffrey Campbell and offered exclusively through Free People, these boots are your next awesome shoe find. Available in black with silver studs or brown with brass. $199, freepeople.com.
