BUY A CUP OF JOE, HELP SOMEONE IN NEED

Turns out, giving back is as easy as buying a cup of coffee.  Local coffee house, The Well, has made its mission to help those in need by serving up delicious brews. The Well gives its profits to worthy causes like building wells in African communities that do not have access to clean water.  Anytime you buy a cup of coffee for yourself from The Well, you’re also giving to someone else in a big way.

Dottie loves collaborating with companies that have big hearts.  You can feel good about shopping at DCB, too!  At the end of every month, Dottie donates a portion of proceeds to a different organization or cause close to our heart.  Shopping is even more fun when it’s for a good cause!

Local Indy blogger, Kathleen Post stopped by The Well and cozied up with a cappuccino.  In her first look, she gave a gloomy day a pop of color in the Green Knit Layered Sleeve Sweater.  The sweater paired with the Black Patent Leather Clutch is giving us total Central Perk vibes.

In Kathleen’s second look she switched out the bold sweater for the neutral Oatmeal Textured Knit Sweater and added the Black Velvet Fiddler Hat and Velvet Quilted Black Purse for some flare.  This sweater is longer than the first and is great for long days at the coffee shop spent reading or studying – perfect for college!

Bold prints give dreary coffee shop days life!  Steal Kathleen’s look for your own.  Pair the Heart Printed Long Sleeve with your favorite denim and nail the perfect street style.

GET DOUBLE OUT OF YOUR DENIM

Forget diamonds, denim is a girl’s best friend.  In a world of fast fashion, it’s important to have key pieces that mix well with trending styles.  Think of denim as the staple that holds all your outfits together.  Keep the base of your outfit on point and the rest of your outfit planning is made easy.

Three pieces of denim are essential to your wardrobe.  Check out how we styled a pair of solid denim, a pair of destructed denim and a denim jacket!

SOLID DENIM | Dark Blue Denim Skinny

Solid Denim

A pair of dark, solid denim is an absolute must.  Think of this pair as your bestie.  The pair of denim you can rely on for almost any occasion.  They fit well and can be worn with just about any top in your closet.

In Option 1, the denim is dressed casually.  Pair it with a slouchy top and your favorite bootie and wallah! You have an amazing everyday look.

In Option 2, the denim gets a classy update.  Take your denim out on the town.   Add an off the shoulder top and a strappy heel.

DESTRUCTED DENIM | Distressed Cuffed Ankle Skinny

Destructed Denim

When you think destructed denim, do you think casual?  Think again!  There are so many ways to pair this essential piece of denim.

In Option 1, the denim looks polished as its combined with a trendy textured coat and sleek booties.  This atypical pairing is a perfect way to give a boring outfit life.

In Option 2, the denim looks completely different!  Over-the-knee boots don’t always have to be paired with solid denim.  Combine destructed denim and OTK boots to tone down your look to cool and casual.

DENIM JACKET | Pearl Studded Denim Jacket

Another way to wear denim: jackets!  Update your drab denim for this fab fit just in time for 2018.  Our new pearl denim jacket adds extra interest to this closet staple.  It’s more versatile than you may think!

Denim Jacket

In Option 1, it’s styled down with a pair of leggings, sneaks and a beanie.  This street style look is updated and fresh and perfect for running errands and grabbing coffee.

In Option 2, the jacket is giving total cool girl vibes.  Pair it with dark denim and a high bootie heel for a chic, trendy outfit that will take you from day to night.

CATE’S CURATED WINTER LOOKS

Dottie Girl, Cate, was styled by Lindsey at our Fisher’s boutique location.  She requested interchangeable winter pieces as well as an option for a NYE look.  Lindsey pulled winter neutrals and showed Cate her favorite ways to style them!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Stylists will always try to use certain pieces (a.k.a. “staples”) multiple times within different outfit combinations.  The Black Faux Suede Moto Leggings were shown with three of the six looks pulled for Cate.  However, Lindsey mentioned that the leggings could be worn with five of the six outfits! The leggings look different with each outfit combo shown.

Other staples can just as easily be interchanged as well.  For example, the Black Leather Zipper Jacket can be worn over Look 1, Look 2 or Look 6.  It’s your stylist’s job to maximize your wardrobe’s potential.  She will show you the best combinations you’re sure to love!

Listed below are the looks Lindsey pulled for Cate.  If you’re not a local, you can still shop the looks!  If you have any questions about fit or sizing chat with a Customer Service Dottie Girl on our website from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. EST Monday – Friday.  Or email sales@dottiecouture.
