With less than a month until Fall equinox we are already thinking about bundling up into layers of gorgeous cashmere that are already arriving at Front Door Fashion!  Fall, for us fashion folk, is the most wonderful time of the year! It's the time for experimenting with layers and breaking out your favorite leather jacket. While we fashionistas are excited to dive into fall we reluctantly recognize that temperatures are still well into the 80s and 90s until October in some parts of the country (especially here in Texas). So, how do you dress for that awkward transitional season when shorts and sundresses no longer cut it but autumn temperatures haven't quite arrived? Don’t get ahead of yourself and pack away your summer-weight items just yet because you can still use them mixed in with layers. The key to dressing for transitional weather is to pair the summer pieces you already have with a few freshly classic fall items like a lightweight blouse, an oversized sweater, a statement jacket and a classic button up. To help you stay ahead of the curve, we've selected several early fall outfits along with styling tips so you'll be ready when temperatures drop. After all, it's better to be prepared with a few fall items ready in your closet than to be scrambling at the last minute! The time to starting buying key fall items is now!

Athleisure by definition is casual, comfortable clothing designed to be suitable both for exercise and everyday wear. When a trend is as cute as it is comfy, we just want to wear it all the time. That's why for the first time in Front Door Fashion history we've curated an Athleisure blog. Athleisure our way is a combination of comfy leggings, jersey skirts, and casual jackets that can easily transition into your everyday wardrobe and are perfect for quick errand runs. Scroll on to see what we've pulled this week for FDF's take on the Athleisure trend!

There's nothing quite like a summer spent by the water. And packing can be stressful! It's the last thing you need to think about before summer vacation! To keep your head above water when it comes to packing, we've gathered a few looks to put your mind at ease so you can float on to your destination. We think the easiest, breeziest  travel essential for summer by the sea is a light weight dress or two (or three!). Dresses are super easy to pack and take up very little space in your suitcase. They provide you with instant style and minimal effort. Below are our favorite summer dresses to make you feel sophisticated and carefree while on your next vacation.

When temperatures rise above 90 degrees, it can be easy to day dream about living in your summer shorts and kicking back by the pool all day.

We've gathered several outfits and tips from our FDF Stylists to help guide you through the work week heat.

Have you heard the news? We've just completed a serious redo of our style lounges to give our Dallas style appointment customers a more elevated styling experience! You may be asking yourself the following question: "What is a style appointment and why haven't I had one?"  In a nutshell, it is an enjoyable and efficient way to spend an hour. A Stylist will spend usually one hour preparing for your arrival by studying your style profile (and notes of past purchases if you've shopped before) and pulling items she feels will suit your likes, highlight your best features, and meet the needs of your lifestyle.

For this post, we've asked ourselves, "What would Meghan wear to work?" and created a guide for your 9 to 5 from Monday to Friday.

With Earth Day and sustainability on our minds, Citizens of Humanity is the perfect brand to highlight for this month's brand spotlight. COH has gone to great lengths to use the most ecologically sustainable technology and practices. It is one of the few denim companies that owns all of their production vertically. This helps not only control the quality of denim but also their sustainability. While it's almost un-American to not to own a pair of denim, most denim is not made in America because it can be produced at a lower cost outside the United States. While many other lower-priced denim companies are moving their production overseas, COH has always remained dedicated to full production in Los Angeles. Citizens produces their sustainable denim by hand which contributes to their loyal following.

One is a garden soiree in the middle of the day, the second is a semi-formal event at the hotel downtown and the third is a casual and romantically rustic event hosted at a vineyard.

We've compiled a list of ways to dress for the various weddings you may be invited to attend this Spring. With these suggestions and expert tips from your Front Door Fashion stylist, you'll be saying "yes to the dress" and "bye-bye to stress."

The average American owns seven pairs of denim. And if you are a fashion lover you’re bound to be above that average! Question: is the denim that you own right for you and your body shape? Due to denim dominating much of the retail industry and the plethora of choices it can be overwhelming to select just the right style and fit for your body. While the traditional fit rules can easily pigeonhole you to a single denim style, we believe at Front Door Fashion that you should consider breaking away from tradition and embrace your shape and sense of personal style! To simplify your life we're offering fresh suggestions for figure-flattering denim in this spring's trends. Five body shapes below are illustrated by five celebrities: the ruler (Gwyneth Paltrow), the pear (Beyoncé), the apple (Drew Barrymore), the hourglass (Blake Lively), and the inverted triangle (Charlize Theron). Take these tips as guidelines. And don’t forget to have a little fun when working with your personal stylist, to select your denim updates for spring!
