If there’s one thing I’ve learned since I started blogging nearly five years ago, it’s how much fun fashion can be as an expression of who you are. It’s the perfect reflection of your personality (polo shirts, anyone?), and there’s always something for everyone — from brights to understated elegance. Well, today, I’m excited to share a fun interview with Alyssa from Modern Edge Clothing, an online women’s boutique that describes itself as “classy, sexy and edgy.” Read on to find out how the shop got its start and what summer trends to keep an eye out for as the weather heats up! xoxo

Tell me about Modern Edge. What’s the inspiration behind its launch?
Modern Edge caters to young women who love to express who they are through clothing. The inspiration behind Modern Edge started when I realized most women in their 20s dress not according to their age. They do not know how to break away from wearing the boring t-shirt-and-jeans combo. I’ve always had great taste in fashion and others always complimented me on my style. So I decided to open my own online shop. Modern Edge stands for classy, sexy and edgy — a style that is above all others. Modern Edge is fairly new, but I feel it will quickly catch on and be a huge inspiration to women all over!
What are some trends we’re seeing as we move into the summer? What are some of your favorite fashion trends?
Some of our favorite trends are bodycon dresses and a lot of mint! Mint is such a popular color right now, and for good reason! It’s such a fun and bright color, not to mention flattering. Bodycon dresses are perfect for the warmer weather and are a great, simple way to dress up.
What are some things people should keep in mind when shopping for jewelry?
One thing to keep in mind is what outfit you plan to wear the jewelry with. A common mistake people make is buying jewelry just because it looks cute, and then they realize it doesn’t go with any of their outfits! It’s always good to step outside your comfort zone and try something new, but it probably won’t get worn if you have nothing to go with it!
What are some ways that people can still look chic for less?
One of the best ways to look chic for less is to spice up an outfit with a new statement piece (like a cute pair of shoes or a fun jacket) that you can mix and match with basic items you already have in your closet. It’s a great way to give new life to your everyday outfits!
What is your favorite piece in your shop and why?
Right now, one of our favorite pieces in the shop is our chiffon peep toe heels. They are perfect for summer, day or night, and they are one of our bestsellers (did we mention that they also come in mint?). They go great with basically anything: dresses, skirts or even jeans!
