Women's French Connection Trunk Show in Buffalo!

What is a Trunk Show? 
A Trunk Show is a selection of garments from a specific higher-end brand for a specific season. These garments are loaned to a particular store for a limited time only! Only one run of sizes is offered in a Trunk Show, and once they are sold, there is no re-stocking of the product. Often times this merchandise has not yet been released for sale at many stores, so a Trunk Show acts as a preview of these products for a small sector of the public. Urban Leisure & Luxury features a French Connection Trunk Show every year for holiday season. 
This years Fall/Winter 2014 Trunk Show at Urban Leisure & Luxury features lots of sparkle, leather and chiffon!

Women's Fall Style Guide from Urban Leisure & Luxury on Elmwood in Buffalo!

 Casual Luxury
Looking for something to wear to the pumpkin patch, or apple picking this Fall but still want to be stylish? Here are some cute ideas for staying fashionable and cozy during this Fall/Winter's activities! Whether your headed to the pumpkin patch or running errands, you're sure to look cute in these trendy plaids, handmade infinity scarves & hats and luxury knits!
 
Plaid flannels are not only cozy and casual, but are also currently very trendy fall fashions! This means you can be comfortable and warm and still in style! We love this Dex plaid because of the over-sized breast pockets and snap closures instead of buttons! A unique plaid can be dressed up by layering to create what ever look you may be going for. Try layering a plaid under or over a sweater on a chilly day to keep warm and Boho Chic. Try layering a plaid over a frilly lace or chiffon detailed top for a more dressed up and fashion forward look. Don't forget to accessorize with hats, scarves, and lots of jewelry! We decided to make this look pop by pairing two primary colors! We added this mustard yellow handmade beanie (pictured in brown to the left) because yellow and red are primary colors that compliment when paired with each other. By layering the plaid flannel over an ivory v-neck sweater with chiffon trim, we created a leisurely feminine look. We also added several gold Buffalo necklaces to the layered look!

*All items pictured above can be found at Urban Leisure & Luxury at 716 Elmwood Ave. in Buffalo.

Hat: Handmade in Chicago beanie available in green, mustard, rust, brown, oatmeal and charcoal grey
Sweater: Dex chiffon trim v-neck sweater
Button down: Dex plaid flannel
Jeans: Buffalo by David Bitton stretch, faded skinny jeans 


Our favorite Fall pick is this Buffalo by David Bitton over-sized bat wing sweater. It's two different knit patterns make it unique and different than other bat wing, cowl neck sweaters! We accessorized this look with an infinity scarf, that doubles as a hood if preferred. You could further accessorize this look by adding jewelry, a jacket, and/or more layers. Try layering this sweater over a form fitting plaid flannel to be extra cozy this Fall!

Top: Buffalo by David Bitton bat wing sweater
Scarf: Zig-Zag knit infinity scarf by Look

What Fall looks like in Urban Leisure & Luxury's men's dept. - Buffalo

Men's Fall 2014 Fashions:

Versatile up-to-date Fashions
Below are some dressy and trendy men's Fall fashions. 
They are luxury brand, 'in' style and leisurely comfortable.
1.) This 7Diamonds plaid button down shirt is an essential piece for Fall 2014. You can dress it up with some skinny khakis, colored denim or dark wash denim and a belt. This button down can be worn out for a night on the town, to work, and even to school. Plaid is 'in' for Fall 2014, so be sure to pick up your plaid statement piece before the cool Fall weather swoops in! (More Fall plaid prints from Urban Leisure & Luxury shown below).

2.) These dark faded wash Buffalo by David Bitton slim leg jeans are a perfect fit for your Fall wardrobe. They will dress up any outfit and the slim fit is very trendy. These jeans are stretchy and soft, which will make you want to wear them to class instead of your over-worn sweat pants!

3.) This embroidered button down shirt is super stylish especially when paired with some dark denim and a wooden skinny tie or wooden bow tie (currently out of stock). (Close up of the embroidered pattern to the right).

4.) Wood is in for Fall 2014, so be sure to be trendy and pick up this wooden tie from Urban Leisure & Luxury! They come in both skinny and regular widths and are the perfect accessory to up the trendiness of any look. 

5.) These medium stone wash, slim fitting Levi's are a great denim for Fall 2014. The wash is dressier and far trendier than a plain light wash denim, and the slim fit makes them appear to be dressier than a regular or looser fitting jean.

6.) This versatile Buffalo by David Bitton genuine leather belt is a must have for Fall 2014! The inside has a trendy plaid pattern printed right onto the brown leather. This belt can be worn one of two ways. It can be worn like a normal belt where the plaid (on the inside) is hidden, or the end of the belt can be pulled back through the buckle for a second look, that allows for the plaid to be visible.
 

7.) This Buffalo by David Bitton button down is our favorite Fall 2014 men's garment yet! The shirt manages to incorporate three of the 'in' Fall fashions for 2014 by it's dark denim shell, leather collar and matte black buttons! Purchasing this shirt will definitely make you the most stylish man in Buffalo!


Fall Colored Casual Luxury
Below are men's Fall garments in this year's pantone colors. 
They 'in' style, leisurely casual with a luxury feel.

1. & 2.) This cozy Volcom v-neck sweater can be layered with a long sleeve button down or worn by itself. Try pairing one of these fall colored sweaters with grey denim for a luxury cool look while still feeling leisurely casual.
3. & 4.) These fall colored Volcom polos are light and can be layered with a sweater, a flannel or a jacket for a cooler fall day. 
5.) These medium grey Volcom jeans are casual and comfy. They are neutral in color, so they can be paired with almost any color top.
6.) These forest green pants put a new spin on casual, fading from solid at the waist to dark army print at the bottom pant legs. Try pairing these with a solid long sleeve T shirt, so that you dont take away from the detailing! 
7.) This Volcom belt is adjustable to fit almost any waist size. Its cool army colors allow it to be paired with almost any casual fall outfit!

Sparkle this Fall with unique accessories and clothing from Urban Leisure & Luxury!

Be ready for Fall 2014 with trendy metallics and body chain necklaces
What's 'IN' for Fall 2014?!
Metallics as seen on the runway for Fall 2014 include gold, gunmetal, and silver in many different textures and looks.

Ready-to-wear metallic fashions come in many different looks. This metallic mini skirt is covered in brown and gold tone sequence. We didn't want to take the focus off of the skirt, as that is our statement piece so we paired it with a neutral beige light sweater. We cuffed the sleeves and added accessories to make this look our own. We mixed layered necklaces in copper & dark gold and added a rust orange pendant and ring to bring the Fall look together. The contrast in colors between the rust orange and the skirt's sequences make this look pop! 


A body chain necklace is the perfect statement accessory for a solid colored or bland outfit. Try pairing it with an all black outfit to add some shine to your overall look! If you're wearing a solid colored outfit, for example all black, try mixing black textures like leather and cotton or leather and a knit.

Fall 2014 Trend Alert - Buffalo

 What's "IN" for Fall 2014?!
TEXTURE, lots and lots of textures!
Try mixing texture with texture, or texture with pattern!

Above: Beige & black stripped knit sweater, a multicolored snake skin cut-out clutch.
Below: Close up of multicolored snake skin cut-out clutch.
This look works because the colors in both the clutch and sweater are pulled from neutral color palates. The clutch also has gold metallic and orange in it, which add a Fall pop of color to the look. By combining textures and patterns that look good together you are not only pulling together the overall look of your outfit, but you will also look super stylish and fashion forward. We added a long gold acorn necklace to this Fall look to pull the metallic gold out of the clutch and zippers on the black leggings featured above.

Another great combination of textures is leather or faux leather and denim or plaid. Leather/faux leather, plaid and denim are popular textiles for Fall 2014. Urban Leisure & Luxury just got in this awesome Buffalo brand denim button down with plaid accents. This top already combines two textures that go well together. We paired it with a pair of Dex faux leather pants and some black heels. This look is casual and edgy, but super fashion forward and trendy. It's simple enough for anyone to put together this look on their own! Try adding accessories such as a handbag, sunglasses, or jewelry to make this look your own!

Below are two similar looks (taken from Glamour Magazine) that were seen on fashion icons such as Miranda Kerr and Kylie Jenner. Miranda Kerr's looks sporty and chic in her leather pants and denim button down. We love that she accessorized her look with sunglasses! Kylie Jenner is known for her edgy street fashion. The combination of her over-sized plaid and leather pants work with her style.

Buffalo's Favorite Romper - Perfect for Fall 2014



Our ivory romper was the star of the Elmwood Village's two page spread in the Fashion Issue of Buffalo's ArtVoice. The spread advertised clothing, shoes and accessories for men, women, and children from all of the different retailers on Elmwood Ave. The ad was created to show readers how you can create a stylish and unique look simply by shopping in the Elmwood Village and supporting local businesses. 

 


We love this romper so much that we restocked it in jade, black and ivory! The brown braided belt (as shown in photo) is included! This romper is a must have for Fall 2014. You can dress it up with heels and statement jewelry for a night out, or wear it casually by accessorizing with boots & boot socks and wear your hair up (for ex. in a top-knot.) The belt can also be changed for a new/different look. Since the romper has an open back it can be worn with either a bra-let/bandeau or backless bra! We sell backless bras, so if you are unsure of what they are, be sure to stop in and ask any of our sales associates about them!

Sweater Season in Buffalo?!

Sadly it seems that the Summer weather is coming to an end.
At least that means you can begin your Fall shopping!
Urban Leisure & Luxury loves sweaters, stop by and see all 
that we have to offer for men's and women's transitional & Fall apparel.

Sweaters for Women:

Long cardigans are a good transition piece from Summer to Fall because they look cute when worn with either shorts or jeans! A ankle length sweater will keep your legs warm when being worn with shorts because of its length. A long sweater with a jagged cut looks super stylish when layered and worn with jeans during the Fall. Try layering one of these sweaters over a cute top with a scarf and some unique jewelry! 
__________________________________________________

Over-sized crocheted/knit sweaters are perfect for Fall. Whether black and white or full of color, they are a must have piece for Fall 2014. Over sized sweaters are a trendy yet effortless look and can be paired with many other pieces that you probably already have in your closet! Try pairing an over sized sweater with jeans for a stylish look, or with leggings for a cute and cozy look. Add jewelry, a scarf, a handbag, or other accessories to make your look one of a kind.

__________________________________________________
Sweater dresses are another Fall must have! They are just as easy as a maxi dress is in the Summer! Rock a cute sweater dress like this one on a warm or cool Fall day. You can cuff up the sleeves if it's expected to be a warmer Fall day or add layers if it's expected to be cool outside! Try adding tights/stockings, a light jacket, or even another sweater if you are not warm enough wearing just a sweater dress! Try accessorizing this look with a belt, scarf, jewelry, or boot socks.







Sweaters for Men:

A dressy men's sweater should be a closet essential. A neutral dressy sweater can be layered over a button down shirt of any color or pattern. These sweaters can be worn for a night out, or to an interview. It is a classic look that pulls together any Fall outfit. Below is a 7 of Diamonds wool sweater that can be found at Urban Leisure & Luxury. The button down and denim from the below photograph can also be found at Urban Leisure & Luxury!

 __________________________________________________ 


This light hooded sweater is ideal for the leisurely man because it's comfortable yet still cool. It can be worn khakis or regular indigo denim depending on what look you are going for. This sweater can be layered with a light jacket for cooler Fall nights. It's the perfect sweater for back to school because it is simple and stylish.
