Take a Walk on the Wild Side

Mixed prints, sporty with sophisticated, edgy with feminine—unexpected pairings make for the most memorable outfit moments. Here’s Fashion Fabrics Club’s roundup of looks that break the rules in all the right ways.

Cozy Sweater & Pencil Skirt

Take your favorite oversized, chunky sweater and pair it with a sleek, tailored pencil skirt for a look that’s buttoned up enough to be office appropriate (with tailored flats) but still feels relaxed enough for everyday wear (when paired with fresh sneakers).

Stripes & Spots

If you’re new to mixing prints, stripes and animal print is a failsafe pairing you can count on. You can break it up a bit like this look here, putting a solid color in the mix as a buffer between the two prints.

Sundress Dress & Combat Boots

This is the perfect in-between season look, combining elements from summer and fall all into one unexpected ensemble. Take a little chiffon sundress, toss a bomber jacket over the top and pair it up with a fresh pair of combat boots.

Leather Skirt & T-Shirt

A leather skirt gives off an edgy, fierce look that’s perfect for after dark, but you can transform it into a cool everyday piece with the right pairing: a cool graphic T-shirt, denim jacket and sneakers.

Buffalo Check & Glam

Buffalo check is an easy go-to in the fall and winter months, an easy and cozy partner with all things denim. To shake things up a bit, pair it with glamorous extras like a faux fur vest, cute skirt, and statement necklace and suddenly it takes on a whole new attitude.

Cotton Sale!

Naturally breathable, airy, and light, cotton is an essential part of the warm weather wardrobe. And as luck would have it, Fashion Fabrics Club is having a major cotton fabric sale right now. Here is a roundup of 5 must-have cotton pieces for this season with links to fabrics so you can make your own at home!

cotton Denim SkirtDenim Skirt

Denim is a live-in fabric all year round, but for this summer we’re seeing a lot of ‘90s throwbacks like embroidered denim jackets and frayed hem denim skirts like this number here. The denim skirt is a catchall for what to wear all spring and summer long being the perfect mix of dressy and casual.

Cotton Sateen TrousersCotton Sateen Trousers

When the temps are hot yet the day requires you to look buttoned up, cropped trousers are the answer. For something a little unexpected and a lot on-trend, swap the traditional suiting fabric for a lustrous cotton sateen. It plays on the shine trend that’s so hot right now and gives the menswear-inspired piece a more feminine appeal.

cotton Gauze DressGauze Dress

A one-piece look that you can toss on when the temperatures start creeping up to the triple digits is essential for keeping your cool. A floaty gauze dress fits the bill in every way: lightweight, breezy, airy, and incredibly on-trend.

Cotton Canvas ShortsCotton Canvas Shorts

Cotton canvas offers the perfect mix of structured and slouch that’s required of summer shorts—you want to be able to toss them on any old day and also be polished enough to dress them up for more formal events. To get the most wear out of your pair, opt for an easy neutral like black, white, or any shade of tan.

Cotton Chambray ShirtCotton Chambray Shirt

Warm weather dressing is all about ditching the stuffy stuff and embracing the softer side of the sartorial spectrum. That’s where the cotton chambray button up comes in—consider it the relaxed sister of the traditional crisp cotton button up (and pair it the exact same way).

Embrace the Blues

Embrace the Blues

Winter got you feeling blue? Surround yourself in the calming color of cool blue and watch how your mood is instantly lifted. Here are a few stylish, winter-ready suggestions on how to wear the shade from Fashion Fabrics Club.

Twill Trench

Swapping the classic camel and traditional tan for a soft blue wool twill transforms the timeless trench silhouette into something with more character and impact, meaning it’s the kind of piece that you can toss on and instantly make your look.

Cashmere Sweater

Freshen up your on-the-clock look by ditching the blazer and replacing it with a navy blue cashmere sweater. It adds a soft touch to tailored pieces like cigarette pants and a button up, while keeping you feeling comfy and looking totally polished.

Faux Fur Jacket

There’s something incredibly smile inducing about a shaggy faux fur jacket, especially when it’s done up in a playful color like baby blue. Added bonus: it makes everything it’s paired with feel so much more dressed up, case in point with this sweater and jeans ensemble.

Knit Scarf

It’s easy to stuck in a rut of all black all the time in the winter. An easy way to step out of the routine is by throwing in a pop of color into the mix in a form of an easy accessory, like a crisp blue jersey knit scarf

Velvet Dress

For those days when you’re in a pinch for time but still want to look put-together, a wrap dress does the trick—and in rich blue velvet it can work for everything from everyday outings to the most elegant occasions.

Fun with Fleece

Fun with Fleece

Fleece is one of the coziest, warmest, softest fabrics to bundle up in on cold winter days, and it just so happens to be on sale on Fashion Fabrics Club right now! Here, find a roundup of fun and chic ways to wear the fuzzy fabric this season.


Take your jeans and a long-sleeved T-shirt up a notch with a chic and cozy fleece vest. It’s just the thing for days when you’re out and about and doing a lot of moving around—your arms have full mobility but you still get incredible warmth.


A slouchy dress in fuzzy fleece is perfect for those alarm-fail days when you need to look cute, but don’t have a spare second to plan your look. Simply toss on, add legging, zip on some boots and go.


PJ-like comfort for any hour of the day—try using cozy fleece in a pair of jogger pants for a look that’s laid-back, totally on trend, and infinitely comfortable.

Sherpa Cardi

An open cardigan in Sherpa fleece is the best of both worlds; it’s sleek and polished on the outside and extra plush and cozy on the inside. It’s like a sweater and scarf all in one piece.

Sherpa Pullover

The fur obsession is in full swing, and shows no signs of stopping any time soon. While most fur jackets give off an almost pretentious vibe, a Sherpa pullover plays to the textural trend in a friendlier, more casual way.

Pantone Color of the Year: Ultra Violet

Pantone Color of the Year: Ultra Violet

It’s official, the color gurus at Pantone have named the color of 2018: Ultra Violet. The vibrant hue represents “originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking,” says the color dream team, and it just so happens to complement nearly all skin tones. As a little guide to help you dip your toe into the trend, Fashion Fabrics Club has compiled a first look at how style mavens are already incorporating the cosmic shade into their looks.

Wool Coat

If your closet is mostly packed with neutrals, adding an ultra violet wool coat to the mix would be an easy addition—an instant update to every basic and go-to look in the rotation (not to mention incredibly cozy, too!).


The jumpsuit is the essential one-piece that delivers at every stop: polished, put-together, no thinking needed, no extras necessary. I.e. it’s the ultimate hit-snooze-too-many-times-but-still-have-to-make-it-to-work-on-time piece. In a purple silk-like fabric, it feels more feminine without compromising its powerful vibe.


A major benefit of this new color obsession is that it’s at the same time soft and feminine, and also bold and striking. This makes it an easy pick to dress up for work or down for weekends. Take this violet suiting fabric blazer for example, this look is great for every day, but a simple jean swap for a skirt, and it’s instantly office-ready.

Moto Jacket

When a moto jacket is rendered in a luxe material and rich hue, it becomes so much more than a simple motorcycle jacket—it becomes a statement. Cue the new “it” color in lush faux suede, just thing to up the ante on one of your favorite staples.

In-Between Season Shades

Dressing can be difficult and time consuming when the weather is temperamental, so here is Fashion Fabric’s Club’s roundup of 5 versatile colors you can always depend on to keep you chic while we wait patiently (or not-so patiently) for spring to finally arrive.

Olive shade apparelOlive

Olive green is just muted enough of a shade to be appropriate for both sun-filled adventures and overcast, more wintry days. This look of rolled olive green khakis with a mid-weight gingham button-up is a perfect go-to for these anything-goes days.

Gray shade apparelGray

Gray is a seasonless shade that has a magical way of looking both put-together and laid-back at the same time. A super chic way to rock the color right now is by layering pieces of the same shade all in one look. This gray denim, gray sweater, gray tweed coat ensemble is perfect for those last winter days when the temperature refuses to rise higher than the 50s.

Blush shade apparelBlush

Blush is a super easy and understated way to bring a little color into even the simplest of looks. Try an oversized blush cashmere sweater with a favorite pair of skinny jeans and loafers for a fun in-between season weekend look.

Light Blue shade apparelLight Blue

To ease into spring’s bold and bright colors, it’s good to start with more subtle shades like the easy-to-pair light blue. This look is a fun lesson in proportion play, the long length and narrowness of the black skinny jeans is evened out with the wide, high volume shape of the short-sleeved button-up on top. Perfect for a more spring-like day and if the weather starts to cool, simply add a chunky scarf or light coat.

Cream shade apparelCream

Winter and summer whites are classic and clean, but for the months in-between, a neutral cream is the way to go. A tailored, cream-colored lightweight wool coat makes dressing for these questionable weeks in the middle easy—a simple toss-on that instantly adds warmth and chicness to nearly any outfit.

Fit and FlareFit & Flare Dress

Get a free pattern from sewing blog: So Sew Easy (picture shown is also from their blog).

Wrap DressWrap Dress

The wrap dress is a girl’s best friend: effortless, dependable, timeless, and versatile. (DVF, we thank you for your design prowess and bringing us this gem of a garment.) This pattern (and picture shown) is from the blog of Confessions of a Fabricaholic, it has the perfect year-round mix of ¾ length sleeves and a knee-length hemline. She used a solid, thicker knit, but in a drapey, printed jersey knit (like a floral print, or black + white rose print ) it would have a more flirty appeal.

Maxi SkirtMaxi Skirt

Maxi skirts are closet essentials, no matter what time of year. Check out Crazy Little Projects maxi skirt sewing tutorial to craft your own (picture shown, from her site). She suggests a stretchy knit fabric but if you’re looking for something a little dressier (and if you know your way around a sewing machine and can handle more slippery fabrics), try a poly/chiffon fabric in fun print like floral or chevron.

gathered topGathered Top

This versatile top (pattern and picture from the divas at So Sew Easy) would make a great addition to any wardrobe; under blazers, paired with jeans or skirts or even shorts. In order to achieve the best drape from the gathered design, opt for a stretch knit fabric, asymmetrical patterns like FFC’s multi cheetah plaid, or multi oval cluster would work best.
