It seems like we discovered Achro, a contemporary fashion line based in the Arts District of Los Angeles, at the perfect time. In the age of over-embellished style, “arm parties” and other fashion ridiculousness, their simple yet chic pieces are a refreshing change of pace. The pieces are classic yet of the moment, including slouchy jackets, oversized sweaters and shirts, and loose dresses - including many items under $100!

eayrslee-accessories.jpgBrooklyn is filled with amazing up-and-coming brands, and we have one more to add to your radar: Eayrslee. The two designers actually grew up far away from NYC. Joanne Lee is originally from Southern California, and Mimi Eayrs had a bohemian upbringing in Buenos Aires. The pair met in New York and went on to found a line of practical and timeless accessories, Eayrslee, in 2010. We love their classic styles made with luxe materials sourced from Italy, Argentina and New York, like this haircalf crossbody ($295) and neon orange mini ($225). eayrslee-thumb.jpg
