Over the river and through the woods…

…to a cozy gathering with friends and family you go in these sweater dresses and warm winter outfits!

 

This plum Diane Von Furstenburg sweater dress size (size small) paired with rich brown Via Spiga knee high boots(size 6) make a perfect warm weather combo. Throw on this Jones New York trench coat (size Medium) and you are ready to keep it cozy!

Another cute and casual sweater dress combo is this short sleeve cable knit dress (S/M) paired
with tan suede Vince Camuto knee high boots (size 6) and this fabulous patent olive and gold Tory Burch clutch.

If sweater dresses aren’t really your thing, try a long cardigan like this printed one by St. John Sport (Large) over a slinky tank top like this tan and cream one by Halogen (small). Throw on a comfy pair of navy jeggings by Rag & Bone (size 30) and a classy yet casual boot like these lace up leather boots by Chloé (size 38) and you are ready to weather any weather!

 

 

 

 


 

Jingle all the way…

but we prefer to sparkle all the way. Pair sequins with more casual pieces for a chic look or with tailored pieces for a put together look.

 

theory

Put a spin on the classic blazer and skirt combo by adding fun texture! This rich teal velvet blazer by Theory (size 2) is perfectly complemented by this silver sequined skirt by Banana Republic (size 0). Add a simple tank top like this one by J.Crew (Medium) and classic loafers by Cole Haan (size 6) to complete the look.

vintage

Break out your vintage pieces to create a modern take on an older piece. We paired this vintage sequined top with distressed black denim jeans by J. Brand (size 29) to create a chic look. Top it off with a simple black slingback like these by Manolo Bhlanik (size 35.5) and a chunky bracelet.

Sparkle and shine with two big trends, chunky sweaters and jogger style pants. You won’t be jogging anywhere in these chic navy Parosh joggers (Medium) we paired it with this simple gray cable knit sweater by J.Crew (XS) and silver strappy Jeffery Campbell pumps (size 7). Add a chunky necklace for even more drama!

 

 

 

 


 

Tis the season….

to blow everyone away in your little red dress.

You can not go wrong with an elegant red dress during the holidays. This dress by Pheobe Couture (size 2) gives just enough sex appeal without being revealing. Pair it with simple black wedges by Cole Haan (size 6) and a chic black pebbled leather Burberry cross body bag with gold accents.

For a look sweeter than any candy cane try a lace dress, another huge trend this holiday season. We chose this red French Connection dress with a nude liner (size 8) and paired it with a black bow belt by Temperley. Add a nude clutch and nude shoes and you are ready!

This BCBGeneration one shoulder dress (size 8) is the perfect statement outfit for your holiday party. Wear it with these Jil Sander boots (size 37.5) to add even more drama.

Summer Music Scene Looks

Posted by on May 5, 2014 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Spring has sprung Revolver fans, and summer is fast approaching! As the weather warms up so does the live music scene around the triangle and whether you’ll be barefoot on the lawn at Walnut Creek or dancing with your friends at Cat’s Cradle you’ll need the perfect look to see your favorite band… and Revolver’s got you covered! We’ve put together some suggestions for some of the summer’s most anticipated shows and it’s all available in the shop, so buy your tickets and come to see us, we’ll help you put together your ultimate outfit!

Kimchi Blue dress size 4, Guatemalan belt, Justin western boots size 7.5

Country fans get ready for a packed schedule this summer! At Walnut Creek alone there’ll be Dierks Bentley May 10th, Luke Bryan June 7th & 8th, Tim McGraw June 22nd, Rascall Flats July 25th, Keith Urban August 8th, and Miranda Lambert August 21st! You’ve got some hard choices to make, but what to wear isn’t one of them! A pretty day dress like this open back embroidered one from Kimchi Blue makes the perfect statement when paired with your favorite cowboy boots and an unexpected accessory like our Guatemalan belt!

Country Concert

If you are headed to an indie rock show like Vampire Weekend with Cults on June 12 at Red Hat Amphitheater your look should be effortlessly cool with some standout accessories like this tribal scarf and Ferragamo crossbody bag. A jumpsuit can be a great alternative to a sun dress to keep cool and still have lots of freedom to dance at shows like Haim May 6th at Cat’s Cradle and Cage the Elephant with Foals & J Roddy Walston May 2nd at Red Hat Amphitheater.

We The Free Romper size 6, Nepali by TDM scarf, Salvatore Ferragamo handbag, Cole Haan pumps size 6

With so many 80′s icons headed to Raleigh this summer, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to break out your neon, legwarmers and headbands, or douse yourself in hairspray and get ready to rock! Whether you end up at Walnut Creek for Hall & Oates May 3rd, Journey May 29th, Kiss & Def Leoppard July 20th, or at Red Hat Amphitheater for Pat Benatar and Rick Springfield June 29th make sure you have as much fun as possible with the decade of fashion decadence! We threw an iridescent tank over a full body jumpsuit and made it totally rad with Betsey Johnson rainbow stripe pumps!

LNA jumpsuit size L, Cynthia Steffe gold tank size S, Betsey Johnson heels size 10

If your first priority this summer is getting to the Widespread Panic shows June 5th and 6th at Red Hat Amphitheater you’ll need a look to jam out in! Whether you’re front row or out in the lawn breaking it down, comfort is key and we’ve put together a look that’s hippie chic with an Ace & Jig dress and Coconuts snakeskin sandals. Try a pair of vintage shades like these luxe Ray-Bans and layer on the chains for a look that will work just as well at Dave Mathews Band July 23rd or at Slightly Stoopid with Stephen Marley and G. Love & Special Sauce August 8th.

Ace & Jig dress size S, Ray-Ban Vintage Sunglasses, Coconuts snakeskin sandals size 9

If beach music is more your scene make sure to check out the Midtown Beach Music Series at the North Hills Commons Thursday nights from 6-9pm. The Embers featuring Craig Woolard will be playing June 5th. Whether you’re shagging or just drinking you’ll be doing it in style in the perfect summer dress with a classic pair of sandals. We paired a strapless Sabine dress with K. Jacques leather sandals for all you sweet Carolina girls!

Sabine dress size S, K. Jacques sandals size 36

The boho vibe is a staple of summer music festivals, but don’t worry you don’t have to travel far or do any camping to try out this look. We layered a Winter Kate fringe vest over a velvet crop top and leather shorts for a funky eclectic mix then added ankle boots by Pierre Hardy and a Good Girls Studio statement necklace to top it off. If Bonnaroo is not in the cards this year, try this out at Wild Belle May 10th at Motorco Music Hall or at Ray LaMontagne July 26th at Red Hat Amphitheater.

Winter Kate fringe vest size L, Staring at Stars crop top, Kate Moss for Topshop leather shorts size 10, Pierre Hardy boots size 37, Good Girls Studio "Running Down Love" Necklace

The PNC Arena is drawing some big names in pop music this summer with Bruno Mars on June 14th and Katy Perry June 22nd! A sexy mini dress like the striped Troubadour one we chose paired with of-the-moment Jenni Kayne d’orsay flats makes the perfect sartorial statement to stand out in the crowd!

Troubadour dress size XS, Jenni Kayne flats size 37.5, J. Crew gold locket necklace, Kenda Kist gold bar necklace, Ray-Ban Vintage Sunglasses

Whichever shows you end up at this summer, remember a concert can be a chance to wear things you wouldn’t usually try in daily life so pull those pieces out of your closet that you never seem to have a place to wear- or come to Revolver and find something truly unique! Just have fun with it!

Style with Ease

Posted by on Jun 4, 2013 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

“Easy, breezy, beautiful”
may be Maybelline’s tagline,
but it’s also the mantra of Summer dressing.

You may think it’s hard to look put together and stylish
while keeping cool,
but with these tips and tricks
you’ll be looking like a fabulous beach babe!

(Heavy Machine heels size 38 $182 NEW, Coach handbag $50, Chico's necklace $28, Nation dress $32)

(Heavy Machine heels size 38 $182 NEW, Coach handbag $50, Chico’s necklace $28, Nation dress $32)

 

 

 

 

 

The key to effortless style is color – the perfect shade can make a simple outfit seems a lot more interesting. We love this coral Nation dress paired with clean-line, neutral accessories.

 

 

 

 

 

(Kate Spade heels size 8.5 $120, Prada handbag $268 NEW, Graziano necklace $20, Theory dress size 4 $98)

If you fear bold color, a subtle shimmer plays off the gleaming sun. Matte gold or silver are perfect for day-to-night since they aren’t too intense, plus it illuminates your skin – tanned or au natural!

 

 

 

 

 

(Fornarina heels $36, Cole Haan clutch $48, Roberta Freymann necklace $98, Cynthia Rowley dress size 6 $42)

On those warm Summer nights spent out on the town, you want to look sleek and sexy – not sweaty. Choose a rich colored dress and incorporate variations of the hue in your accessories. A little sparkle keeps you shining even after the sun goes down.

 

 

 

 

(Vintage mules size 7.5 $18, Liz Claiborne handbag $14, necklace $24, Calypso dress size small $98)

(Vintage mules size 7.5 $18, Liz Claiborne handbag $14, necklace $24, Calypso dress size small $98)

 

 

 

 

When styling is minimal, a strong color goes a long way. Red looks great on tan or fair skin, just find your perfect shade! To make red more day, try pairing it with turquoise and metallic for an eclectic feel. This look is great for a lunch with friends or business associates!

If you’re into fashion rules, you know that white shoes are officially OK after Memorial Day. But it’s okay to blur the lines a little, so break out your pretty white wedges to pair with your pastels!

 

 

 

 

Enzo Angliolini flats, $26

If you’re not partial to white shoes, try something with shimmer. A sparkly flat will brighten up even your darkest winter garments.

And final you can wear flats again! No more freezing toes or trying to stylishly layer socks and tights. If all-out glitter is too much for your taste, add a bit of edge with gunmetal studs on a simple black flat.

 

 

Marc Jacobs heels, size 7, $68

Spring is the time for color;
vibrant, saturated, brilliant color.
Even if your dress is simple,
you can add a splash with color-block kicks.

A more subtle approach to color is with neutral hues. Teal and turquoise pair beautifully with natural materials like cork and earthy textures like snakeskin. Wear these heels with a safari dress or slim-cut khakis.

Spring Blazers

Posted by on Mar 30, 2013 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

When the trees turn green
and flowers start to bloom
it’s time to ditch your winter wools
and suits of navy and black.

It’s time for color!
Time for cotton and linen blazers
paired with lightweight button-up shirts!

(Ermenegildo Zenga shirt size L $90, Mckenzie Tribe blazer size 42R $96 NEW)

(Ermenegildo Zenga shirt size L $90, Mckenzie Tribe blazer size 42R $96 NEW)

 

 

 

We love Easter pastels as we head into Spring! The best way to wear color and print is to find a pattern with a lighter shade of your bold color; like this blue and pale peach plaid.

(BKE67 shirt $14, Mckenzie Tribe blazer size 40R $146)

(BKE67 shirt $14, Mckenzie Tribe blazer size 40R $146)

If you prefer more subtle shades, try a sky blue blazer accented with light neutrals; like cream and tan. This pairing works well with your favorite pair of jeans.

(Burberry shirt size L $70, Nick Price blazer size 42R $196 NEW)

(Burberry shirt size L $70, Nick Price blazer size 42R $196 NEW)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Feeling bold? Wear pink! Hot pink gets a touch of the unexpected when worn with berry tones (raspberry, plum, raisin). This combo is best suited for an evening out worn with dark-wash jeans and snazzy shoes!

(Gant shirt size XL $56 NEW, Mckenzie Tribe blazer size 40R $146 NEW)

(Gant shirt size XL $56 NEW, Mckenzie Tribe blazer size 40R $146 NEW)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Maybe bright colors just don’t work with your complexion. But you can still have fun with color and print! We love this blue and pale yellow striped shirt and how it works so nicely with this Mckenzie Tribe blazer! With some linen slacks you’ll be looking like a modern age Jay Gatsby.
