Adding a little (or a lot of) seersucker instantly gives looks a spring-ready twist just right for Easter celebrations. Blazer, shorts, dress, skirt, pants—when it comes to this casual-yet-preppy fabric, the options are nearly endless.
Spring It On
Wednesday marked the official start of spring! In celebration of the arrival of sunny season, Fashion Fabrics Club has rounded up a few essentials to help you start making the seasonal switch.
The Basic White T
This may be a no-brainer, but a classic white cotton jersey T-shirt is an absolute must when it comes to welcoming the warm weather. It’s that perfect base layer under a light jacket, a fun counterpoint to floaty skirts, and an effortless outfit with jeans and sneakers.
The Chambray Shirt
Whether it’s tucked into a pair of black denim,, tied in the front over a T-shirt dress, or tossed on over a bathing suit, the chambray button up makes for an effortless addition to the spring go-to rotation.
The Cashmere Cardi
A lightweight cashmere cardigan can serve as the perfect top layer in the spring season, offering just enough warmth without adding any unnecessary bulkiness to your look. Pro Tip: Keep the color neutral to ensure it will go with all your spring brights.
The Striped T-Shirt Dress
Having a one-piece ensemble on hand is essential for getting through spring’s spontaneous moments and last minute plans. An outfit in itself, a striped cotton jersey T-shirt dress can hold its own alone, but also looks super chic when paired with a light army or denim jacket.
The Denim Overall
Having a set of denim overalls in the arsenal will make springtime dressing a whole lot easier. A trendy basic you can count on in a pinch, you’re sure to reach for them again and again all spring long and straight through summer, too.
Go Green - St. Patrick's Day
St Patrick’s Day is this Sunday! Don’t have an outfit yet? You’re in luck! Fashion Fabrics Club has rounded up a series of classy looks to keep you chic and festive however you plan to celebrate, from pub crawls to fancy feasts.
Chiffon Wrap Dress
This emerald green chiffon wrap dress is the perfect thing if the exact plans are a bit fuzzy. From clinking glasses at an Irish pub to sharing apps at a swanky restaurant, this floaty dress is sure to keep you festive and stylish.
Have a few appearances to make throughout the day? We’ve got just the look. A little dressed up but not overly dressy, a green velvet skirt is the perfect St. Patrick’s Day look for celebrating all day and well into the night.
A statement-making weekend look you can wear to the office isn’t an easy find. Cue this killer all-green power suit. If you want to tone down the attitude a bit, you can wear the pieces separately. Pair the blazer with a pleated skirt, or the trousers with a soft cashmere sweater—the options are nearly endless.
If the day turns out a little chilly, a green faux fur coat is the perfect addition to keep you warm and festive. And you’ll be surprised how often you reach for it even after the green-themed festivities are over.
If you’re looking for a more sophisticated way to show your St Patrick’s Day spirit, a full skirt in green satin is just the thing. Pair it with a simple sweater and barely there heels for a more dressy look, or swap the heels for sneakers for an interesting, pub crawl-friendly ensemble.
The Sneaker Dress
There’s something fresh and cool about unexpected pairings. The latest obsession among the fashion set: sneakers with dresses. Not sure how to pull it off? Fashion Fabrics Club has your back. Check out this quick list of sneaker-dress looks you can copy right now.
Dipping into the trend now is all about the layers (since wearing tights with sneakers is a major faux pas). This moto jacket over a knit sweaterdress ensemble hits all the right notes.
If you’re not into the full-on dress look, here’s a skirt-and-shirt option that’s super easy to copy. Take your favorite jeans-and-a-T look and simply swap the denim for a flirty little lace skirt and voila your go-to look just got a major upgrade .
Here’s a failsafe look you can count on in a pinch: a striped T-shirt dress and your favorite white kicks. For battling cooler temps, toss on your go-to denim jacket.
Flirty & Femme
For a stop traffic-worthy look that’s sure to get you noticed, take cues from this elegant ensemble. Uber-feminine pieces —like a ruffled sleeve crepe blouse and pleated satin skirt—matched with sporty sneaks makes for an incredibly modern look.
The silk slip dress has been on the must-have lists of fashion mavens for years now, but a way to freshen the look is by swapping the heels for a chic pair of sporty kicks.
A denim or chambray shirtdress is an easy go-to for the spring and summer months, and pairing it with a pair of casual kicks gives it a totally different look than the more traditional pairing of booties or heels.
With the official start of spring just nineteen days away, it’s high time to get your wardrobe in check for sunny season. Luckily, your friends at Fashion Fabrics Club have put together a short list of easy-chic pieces that you can add to your collection right now that will carry you straight through summer.
It’s time to dust off those spring-perfect denim jackets! Use them now as an added layer under your winter coat, and come spring when the weather warms a bit, it will be the perfect top layer over sundresses and jeans and a T.
With tights and a sweater, the corduroy skirt is right on for right now. Come spring however, it’s an unexpected twist with bare legs and a simple cotton T making for an effortless look you can count on in a pinch.
Crepe Wide Legs
Especially when done up in a light-hued neutral shade like camel or light gray, a pair of high-waisted crepe wide-leg trousers can take on the seasonal transition with ease. For now, pair with a sweater and booties and later, once the weather warms, it’ll make an interesting twist with a casual T and sandals.
Floral Chiffon Midi
While we’re not quite ready to break out the sundresses, we can start easing in with a floaty midi skirt in springy floral chiffon. Super cute with booties and a sweater for the current temps and the perfect pick with a tank and barely-there heels come spring.
It’s easy to fall into a monochromatic routine when battling the lingering winter weeks, but an easy way to kick that habit is by venturing into some classic pattern play. Our favorite? Plaid.
London Fashion Week: Street Style
With the London Fashion Shows just wrapping up, we look to the street style of the fashionable audience to see what’s trending (i.e. what we need to add to our closets) right now. Here’s Fashion Fabrics Club’s top favorite trends seen on the fashion scene.
Easy, breezy hippy-chic pieces were a main attraction on the streets during LFW and it’s a perfect way to breeze through the upcoming warm-weather months (summer’s right around the corner…right?). Taking cues from the “Summer of Love” trend of the ‘60s and ‘70s, we’re seeing patchwork prints, floaty chiffon, and gauze caftans as having a major moment as soon as the weather turns.
Love is in the Air
Airy, romantic dresses graced the style mavens schlepping from show to show, turning into a scene out of a fairytale (albeit, a very fashion forward one). Featuring feminine fabrics like eyelet, lace, and chiffon, these dresses are easy to copy and super fun to wear.
In the Wild
Animal print from leopard to cheetah, zebra to tiger, and a whole lot of snakeskin made a major roar this week. Seen in everything from silk wrap dresses, faux fur jackets, leather boots, and even leggings.
Relaxed yet Refined
A number of fashionistas threw caution to the wind and opted for a look that said “casual meeting”, choosing button downs, tweed blazers, and denim jeans over the typical spectacle-type ensembles most often seen on the fashion streets—and we have to say, it was very refreshing.
Head-to-toe black is an easy backup when you’re in a pinch, but the attendees of LFW took it to a whole other level. From tulle frocks to leather harnesses, black made a new statement, one that says “look at me” rather than “I’m just trying to blend in.”

5 Twists on the Little Black Dress
Chances are you already have at least one LBD in your closet. That one dependable piece you always turn to when the alarm fails, when the dress code is unknown, when you just need a little confidence boost. To round out your collection of LBDs, Fashion Fabrics Club has pulled together five modern twists on the timeless essential.
This sophisticated take on the classic LBD combines feminine tailoring with modest hems for a polished look that can go from a regular day at the office to a black tie event. In a stretchy black double knit, it hugs in all the right places.
This elegant little number brings together cool bohemian vibes with red carpet glamour, making for a little black velvet dress that makes you feel like a celebrity every time you put it on.
Flattering, comfy, polished—a black crepe wrap dress is everything you need (and want!) in an LBD. Perfect for everything from giving a conference presentation to late-night drinks with friends, it’s that piece you turn to again and again, year after year.
Satin Shirt Dress
Satin has a way of making things feel upscale, and this shirt dress is no exception. Taking the traditionally casual silhouette (shirt dresses are typically rendered in crisp cotton or denim) and turning it out in luxurious black satin completely transforms the piece into a dress worthy of even the most dressy of invites.
On the completely other side of the spectrum is the black jersey knit T-shirt dress. It’s perfect for everyday with sneakers or sandals, but can be easily dressed up with heels and other luxe extras, too.
Valentine’s Day Looks to Love
Whether you’re spending the day with your ‘galentines’, headed out for a first date, or celebrating your 20th Valentine’s Day with your partner in crime, Fashion Fabrics Club has just the thing to keep you looking cute for Vday.
For a flirty little look that’s sure to turn heads, try a red cashmere sweater paired with an embellished skirt. It’s romantic without being risqué, just the thing to make the right first impression.
A casual brunch with the crew calls for a relaxed look that is also polished and put-together. Check out our chic solution: baggy distressed denim with heels and pops of pink the form of a twill trench, sweater knit scarves and bouquet of roses (yes, they can double as an accessory).
A fun night out with the girls is best done in a look that makes you feel fierce. Take this wide-leg and lace halter as an example. The crepe wide-legs in vibrant red not only makes a statement, but also has a magical way of elongating, giving you that legs-for-days look for a serious confidence boost.
If you’re heading to your usual spot with your loved one this Valentine’s Day and want to shake things up a bit, a red sequin dress is just the ticket. Keep the color on the muted side (i.e. more burgundy than scarlet) to keep things classy, and simply add tights and a pair of heels.
Staying in doesn’t mean you can’t still dress for the occasion. This look, a cozy black sweater and red chiffon skirt, will keep you in ultimate comfort while also playing up the festive moment.
As bitterly cold temperatures sweep the nation, staying warm and cute gets harder and harder while being out and about. Luckily Fashion Fabrics Club has the answer: wrapping up in oversized and oh-so-cozy, blanket-like sweaters. Get the roundup of some chunky sweaters you need to add to your closet right now.
Doubling as a chic robe for lounging at home, an oversized cardigan in a chunky knit makes for an easy toss on over your basic jeans-and-a-T, warming up your look (and you) in an instant.
With a built-in scarf, chunky knit turtlenecks are just the thing to keep you bundled up in the most extreme lows. For a chic look that can go seamlessly from day to night, pair it with a pair of leather leggings and a sleek pair of boots.
A knitted poncho sweater is the ultimate cozy piece, it’s like being wrapped up in your favorite fuzzy blanket while also being going-out appropriate (major style win). Pair with jeans, leggings, sweatpants that look like leggings, and everything else you’re living in the season.
Chenille Tunic Sweater
Chenille is one of those supremely soft fabrics that both feels and looks incredibly luxurious. Even in a simple shape like a tunic sweater, it somehow feels more dressed up than it’s wool or cotton counterparts.
Boxy Cashmere Sweater
Cashmere is obvious and perfect in slouchy shapes like dolman sweaters and pashminas, but it feels so fresh and unexpected when done up in a more structured piece like a boxy, oversized sweater. The tailoring keeps things polished and professional while the cashmere keeps things cozy.
Accessory Spotlight: Winter Scarves
Winter calls for cozy accessories, but the number one essential is the scarf. With endless colors, textures, and materials to choose from, you can never have too many in your closet. Here’s a roundup of some top favorites from your friends at Fashion Fabrics Club, along with links to similar fabrics so you can make your own version at home.

If you’re the type that gravitates to a mostly neutral wardrobe, a classic buffalo check scarf gives you an easy way to add a hit of color to your look while still keeping things understated.
Take a walk on the wild side with a striking animal print scarf. A hit of leopard, a shot of snakeskin, a dose of zebra—pick your poison.

Nothing gets classier than a rich, neutral toned cashmere scarf. Adding cozy warmth and sophisticated appeal to any and all looks from dresses to oversized sweaters, it’s one of those leave-by-the door types.
Mad for Plaid
From suiting separates to outerwear to accessories, plaid is an easy way to add a layer of interest to your winter looks. Here’s a breakdown from Fashion Fabrics Club of five effortless pieces you’ll want to add to your wardrobe right now.
Houndstooth Plaid Jacket
Rocking the plaid trend doesn’t mean you have to stick to the traditional tartan pattern, there’s a whole host of color and design variations to choose from. For example: this houndstooth plaid overcoat plays into the plaid trend in a sophisticated, polished way, adding a hit of texture and visual interest with its black-and-white color scheme and striking pattern play.
Plaid Cigarette Pants
Here’s a look that can really go the distance, perfect for the 9-to-5 hustle and the weekend. The focal point is the cigarette pants in plaid suiting, paired with neutral extras to keep things from getting too busy.
A plaid flannel button up peeking out from under a top layer instantly takes your look to the next level. Here, the otherwise plain outfit of a sweater and jeans turns into an eye-catching ensemble with the simple addition of the button up.
Buffalo Check Vest
Having an easy toss on in the mix makes it easy to get out the door in a time squeeze. Cue the plaid buffalo check vest. Both chic and functional, it makes casual weekend looks feel more put together while giving you an added layer of warmth.
Plaid Blanket Scarf
An oversized fuzzy plaid scarf is the ultimate winter accessory. It takes casual sweaters and jeans to a more interesting place and can even double as a blanket in a pinch.
Staying chic in the doldrums of winter doesn’t always come easy. But lucky for you, Fashion Fabrics Club has an easy answer to upgrade your go-to rotation with one easy step: just add a vest. Here are a few of-the-moment designs that will seriously expand your wardrobe.
Transform your laid-back weekend look into a major Instagram-worthy moment with the simple addition of an olive twill army vest. Perfect with denim, flannel, buffalo check, stripes, khakis, and everything else you live in on the weekends.
Want an easy way to add edge AND warmth to your look? The leather (or faux leather) moto vest is your answer. Perfect with everything from the most feminine pieces (silk blouses, chiffon dresses, lace tops) to the most streety pieces (distressed denim, grunge sweaters, combat boots), it makes for an easy toss-on with an endless number of looks.
After months of battling single digit temperatures, it’s definitely tempting to just wear those cozy around-the-house leggings into the office. And where this is usually a major no-no, there is a way to get away with it if you do it right. Try pairing your favorite opaque leggings with a long, thigh-crazing blazer vest and classic turtleneck. You’ll feel like you’re in jammies, but look like you’re the one in charge. (Love this pink shade? Here’s a link to something just like it.)
Super lightweight, but also super cozy, cashmere is essential for making it chicly through the winter. In a full-length vest, it acts both as an instant outfit maker and as a warming layer without adding any unnecessary bulk. It’s almost like a wearable blanket in disguise.
