Leifsdottir quietly entered the high-end fashion scene in 2010 when several celebrities wore the label, and it has been a hit ever since. This brand is an upscale addition to a wide line that includes stores like Anthropologie and Free People, from URBAN Inc. Finnish designer Johanna Uurasjarvi is responsible for the slightly bohemian and very attractive clothing that makes this line stand out. She takes inspiration from nature to create clothes with a dreamlike quality, and a story told in many vibrant hues.
The Joy of Upscale Casual
A Leifsdottir dress combines whimsy, structure, and patterns. You may discover one with only blacks and whites in an asymmetrical cut, or you might discover a vibrant monochromatic offering with structured sleeves. Patterns, of course, are a big part of Leifsdottir, and these patterns are unlike anything else you'll find. Complementary colors pop, while subdued tones add depth.
These are the kind of dresses you can wear to a cocktail evening or during a casual spring day, depending on how you accessorize. The casual offerings from Leifsdottir are high quality, so they look stunning when you dress them up and go out on the town, too. This isn't casual like jeans and a t-shirt, but the kind of casual that can become work appropriate with a blazer and your favorite flats. These are the same kind of casual yet upscale garments you find at Joie.
Turn Everyday Fashion on its Head
Leifsdottir skirts evoke a bit of a Rag & Bone feel, but with bright patterns and colors instead of the sedate monochromatic colors Rag & Bone typically offers. Many of them are knee-length and hit your natural waist, which is the best way to emphasize your legs and your shape at the same time. Your options are vast with these skirts, as some have structure, some have patterns, and some have fabric details that give them magnificent textures. You'll find longer and shorter skirts, of course, as well as skirts that fall to your hips instead of your waist.
Since most people fall into the trap of wearing a bright blouse and an ordinary skirt, we love how Leifsdottir offers so many skirt varieties, many of which have eye-catching patterns. Mix it up, and wear a white or black silk top with one of these patterned skirts and a pair of sandals. It's the perfect outfit for your weekend summer outings.
