Reimagine | Fashion Meets Design

In 2015, CHF featured a segment entitled, CHF Life which included regular features of interior design. Our resident interior design contributor was, Jacquin Headen of Interiors by Jacquin. One of the regular series that she features on her site, and introduced to our readers, is Fashion Meets Interiors (formerly Fashion Meets Design). For each post, she chooses one of her favorite home designs and partners with a style blogger/influencer to put their spin on it through fashion.

I have chosen to remix my second contribution to the Fashion Meets Design series. As the Spring kicks off, I thought that the aesthetics of this decor would be perfect for highlighting some of my favorite trends of the season.


The lines and patterns, in the room decor, immediately brought to mind the addictive trend of plaid that dominated the Spring 2018 runways. Prabal Gurung and Fendi both featured looks that highlighted the fun and fierceness of mixing plaid patterns and pops of color.

I saw this Prabal Gurung frock and thought, “That would look great in pants!”

plaid and pattern
What I love about plaid is the ability to mix and match it with striped patterns. In this look, the different weights in the vertical patterns of the handbag, tassel earrings, and tassel adornment on the mule pulls the look together flawlessly. Develop the look further with accessories, such as the rose brooch that compliments the ruffled sleeve of the top. Click look for deets!

I am a mother in my mid-30s with a toddler boy, comfort is KEY…but it does not mean I have to skip sexy. Pairing a lightweight slack with a cropped blouse can take a look go from day to night instantly. An outing can be cut short with an uncomfortable heel. So, why not choose a chic flat to make the fun last longer!

Why stop there? The elements of the room design also led me to the Spring 2018 collection of one of my personal fave women’s designers, Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet.

CHF is a brand about authenticity. We play by our own rules and applaud those who are unafraid to do the same. Naturally, I had to put my spin on this look for you as well. The colors used throughout this ensemble are reminiscent of the colors mixed throughout the room decor.


a+o inspired
It shouldn’t make sense to the majority when it’s authentically you! The high-waist of the A+O skirt meets the hem of the sheer emerald blouse, keeping the look classy. Don’t ruin the fun of a sheer top with a basic cami. Add a lace bralette or bodysuit to compliment the blouse. Click look for deets!
