We’ve been waiting for this moment and it’s finally here. Phases of Fashion is live! The interview series we created with fashion maven Nina Garcia features three celebrity fashionistas and their personal style evolution. Nina gets down to the nitty-gritty, delving into each fabulous star’s sense of style to uncover the story behind their looks.
Between singing sensation Annaleigh Ashford, ESPN sportscaster Cari Champion and The Carrie Diaries’ actress Chloe Bridges, we can’t help but take a break from our busy day to watch these amazing episodes (over and over again). Whether they are taking us into their closet to show us their favorite red carpet frock or explaining their casually cool street style, we’re taking notes on the fashion tips these celebs are willing to dish out. They even take a walk down memory lane, providing us with some of their most memorable fashion moments and we have to say, we’re pretty impressed!
As Nina takes a closer look at each star’s unique lifestyle and diverse set of fashion choices, she curates ensembles tailored specifically for each woman while highlighting cotton’s style and versatility. It’s no surprise that these talented ladies love our favorite fabric for numerous reasons. Watch the video above to see Chloe Bridges in Phases of Fashion or visit our YouTube channel to watch all three!

She fooled The Capitol of Panem in The Hunger Games, won the hearts of Americans everywhere with her bold yet sweet personality and seriously stunned us when it came down to her fabulous sense of style. Ever since the premiere of Catching Fire last weekend, we’ve been loving all of Jennifer Lawrence’s premiere looks! Especially this gorgeous white double breasted style. Combine this fabulous piece with her new pixie cut and J.Law is looking undeniably elegant and fashionably sophisticated. We found this cotton rich alternative so fans of this talented starlet can get the look in our fabric fabric.

It’s time for another fall trend face-off! Who’s competing during this week’s Wardrobe Wars? The sweet fit & flare dress vs. the curve enhancing body-con! We absolutely adore this flattering lace dress from American Eagle. Wear this gorgeous frock to a holiday party or out for dinner with friends this holiday season. Although we think a great fit & flare is a necessity in every girls closet, there’s no denying our appreciation for the body-con dress. Body-conscious dresses show off every curve, and this color-blocked, hip-hugging number looks so chic and sophisticated when paired with a statement necklace. As always, we will definitely have trouble deciding which one is our favorite, especially because both are so on-trend, elegant and affordable. So we’re leaving it up to you to decide!

Today’s Wardrobe Wishlist has us ogling over luxe cotton finds from the fabulously fun Preen collection. Hailing from one of fashion’s hippest homelands, this innovative label started on the streets of London before making its way to America as it quickly became a coveted designer choice for fashion icons such as Kate Moss and Cat Deeley. While we continue to virtually window shop, secretly hoping one of these unbelievably gorgeous cotton dresses ends up in our closet, we know that these pricey pieces are sometimes better stared at then actually worn. Not to worry! We’ve searched the web for a similar design that won’t gobble up an entire month’s paycheck. This lacy number is from Lord & Taylor, it’s also cotton (yay!) and pretty affordable! It shares the same flattering fit & flare shape as its pricier competitor and comes in a similarly vibrant shade of hot pink. Pair it with nude pumps in a glossy patent finish and layer on the gold bangles to step out in celeb inspired style. We absolutely love it! Don’t you?
‘Tis the season to travel and we understand how frustrating packing for holiday vacations can be. With such little suitcase space it’s important to make the most of what you take. Luckily, cotton is the perfect fabric for every occasion. Whether lounging at home watching football or out to a nice dinner with your loved ones, cotton basics can be mixed and matched to create enough outfits to take you through your trip in style.
What to bring:
Fitted cotton t-shirts are a must. They can be dressed up when tucked into a cute skater skirt or down with skinny jeans and canvas converse. These tees from J.Crew come in every color and are super soft and comfortable. They also take up very little suitcase space! We suggest packing a couple in neutral colors to ensure you have one to go with all your statement pieces.
The Skinny Jean:
Every girl should own at least one pair of skinny jeans. Pair these jeggings with pumps for a night out with friends or sneakers for a casual brunch in your hometown. Wrap a printed scarf around your neck to add a pop of color to this classic look.
A textured open front version is comfy and cozy while a fitted button-down style is perfectly polished. These cardigans are an absolute must!
One slightly dressier piece is necessary for every trip. You never know when you’ll need to step up your look and it helps to have a fancier item packed away just in case.
With the holidays around the corner we’re racing to the stores to find the perfect dress for every occasion and it’s no surprise that our favorite styles are fun, flirty and cotton-rich. From knee-length lace designs to festive bows and flattering pleats, we’re in love with every darling detail. While we may decide to splurge on a thing or two, these dresses definitely threaten to break the bank. What to do at a time like this? Rent The Runway, of course! RTR sent us three designer dresses that can be borrowed for a fraction of their retail price and the best part is that these styles are all made of our favorite fabric. Stay tuned for more amazing looks!
