Blog: Bell Sleeves are Back


With fall upon us, everyone is looking through their closets to pull out last year’s favorites. Old faves are great, but consider this… Bell sleeves are in and you can mix this new trend easily with basics from your closet. Many top designers, from Alexander McQueen to Giambattista Valli showed off the Victorian inspired bell sleeve in their collections this year. munkee_1021203155court-flowers

Today a lot of women are replicating the 70’s feel by pairing their bell sleeve blouses with flared jeans. Rock an even more a more dramatic 70’s look when you layer your sleeves with a vest and throw on a pair of our circle sun glasses. A bell sleeve blouse can also take you from day to night when paired with a pencil skirt and a simple heel.

Quarter Moon has many options when it comes to this new trend. We have an assortment of blouses in different patterns and solid colors. If you find dresses to be a better fit for your style, we’ve got plenty of those too. Leave it flowy… or add a belt to your bell sleeve dress. Throw on some tights and boots for the cooler weather. One of our most popular items is our new sunflower top. Perfect with a pair of dark jeans and lace up boots.  Come check out all the new arrivals at Quarter Moon and add something fun and dramatic to your 2016 fall wardrobe!

Summer is over so no more wearing bathing suit bottoms all day long. Our colorful pants below are only a few colors of what we carry in the store. The stretchy high waisted pants come in a dark blue and an acid wash, while the low waisted pants come in black, garnet, and dark green. They are a comfy, trendy pant that can be paired with almost anything! We love them with crops and and playful tanks.

On the first day of school, try wearing a blouse, dark-wash jeans and a cool headband. The fringe detail and feather headpiece will show off your school spirit and incredible fashion sense!   


Fashion Spotlight: Printed Pants


You’d be lying if you said you haven’t seen printed pants everywhere for the past couple of months. It seems like every town outing or magazine browse, printed pants are seemingly everywhere. Coincidentally, the trend is also at Quarter Moon and we are obsessed! Our selection includes long and flared bottoms with tribal prints, florals, and anything in between.

We also realize that it is summer and the heat is getting to us all, so luckily we have a variety of printed shorts as well.

We love pairing all of our printed bottoms with solid crop tops, fringe blouses, or you can even spice it up with an off the shoulder gypsy top. It’s the season to live and dress freely!

On the Fringe


Fringe is a standout trend this season. Once a counter culture staple, fringe is now seen flowing on the long leather dresses of Altuzarra and appear on the runways of Derek Lam as detailed hemlines, cut short and sweet. It’s street fashion turned glamorous and the Spring/Summer runways wouldn’t disagree!10260021_682555455144580_8137527345828697888_nLook fierce in fringe this summer the Quarter Moon way with a boldly colored sundress $44, a tie-dyed bandana $12.50 and circular sunnies $15.
