The most coveted color this season: tangerine. From nail color to dresses, blouses to lip rouge, orange is definitely the “it” color for spring/summer. And as we mentally rack our brains to see how many items we’ve ever purchased in this near neon hue, we’re surprised to find little to none. So we’re left wondering, how do designers/stylists/fashion gurus decide when a color is going to be the color? Aside from clementines and pumpkins, we rarely see this shade dawned outside of Halloween, but now it seems to be the only color on everyone’s minds. Of course we’re doing anything but complaining, as our worlds have forcefully been opened up to the possibility of tangerine, and what a pleasant journey its been.
Slowly, but surely, this punchy hue has flooded our store in the form of dresses, sweaters and blouses. We never could have imagined such a color would make us feel anything more than a frumpy, oversized orange, but alas, we’ve surprised ourselves once again! Tangerine is the most talked about tone in current fashion, and these outrageously orange pieces exemplify why.

Finding ways to incorporate print into your everyday can be a tad tricky. We often find them slightly daunting; especially after the long winter months that have (sadly) kept us bundled in head-to-toe black. But since May is here and the temperatures are beginning to climb, it’s about time you add color, pattern and print back into your somber, weather-induced wardrobe. Print doesn’t always have to come in the form of a top; it can be rotated into any look through clutches, skirts and even notebooks (this idea we especially love—there’s no trendier way to keep track of your ideas and sketches than with a C/FAN printed notebook). Bright and intricate, these prints will be sure to pop on even the most vividly colored summer days.
What We Picked (all available at Cerato Boutique):
1) C/FAN Notebooks
2) Corey Lynn Calter Top w/Obi Belt
3) Plenty by Tracy Reese Dress
4) Plenty by Tracy Reese Top
5) BB Dakota Maxi Skirt
6) Brynn Capella Wristlet
When filling out any wardrobe we can’t emphasize the importance of basics enough. They’re not the most exciting addition to your closet, but trust us, they’re the most essential. We’re talking your solid, jersey knit tee, maxi, cardigan, your go-to when you’re running behind but still want to feel put together. They need little more than a great pair of shoes and accessories to dress up or down, a crucial detail for any time-crunched fashionista.
Sure you can purchase a few v/crew-neck tees and call it a day, but how about some basics with a little attitude? Well you’re in luck, because that’s just what Cerato and Kristin Hassan teamed up to accomplish. The result: a collection of classics you’ll be intermixing in your current wardrobe for some time (talk about a great investment!).
The ideas leading up to its inception are pretty short and sweet. After combing the fashion market for a line indicative of both Cerato and their ever-confident consumer, they felt nothing quite made the cut. Thus, they began throwing around the idea of creating their own. After months of hard work and a string of obstacles, we are happy to announce the arrival of our very own apparel line!
We’ll be officially launching this Friday for our 2nd Anniversary party! Stop by and check out our twist on the typical basic. You’ll want one in every color!

What’s the best thing about the weekend? You can finally step out of that drab work attire you’ve been rotating for the past five days and have a little fun with your wardrobe. In other words, you get to play dress-up! And because we understand it’s never quite this simple, (typically, getting ready involves something like five outfit changes followed by the dramatic, on the verge of tears “I have nothing to wear!”) we’ve decided to take it upon ourselves to be your personal stylist for the weekend. The pieces we’ve chosen for our two Saturday night looks were put together with what’s currently in store. And to make things even simpler, we’ve chosen pieces that can just as easily be styled for a casual event during the week as they can for a cocktail hour with friends.
For our first look we picked an outfit with a lot of color blocking, something not too fussy, but elegant and tasteful. The front pleat blouse by RUCH is a great jewel tone and when paired with a green clutch really pops. Wear this blouse with a black skinny and black close-toed pump (try suede or a matte leather) and a statement earring. The simplicity behind this look is the key: you may not be bedecked in accessories, but you’ll brighten up even the dullest of crowds.
Saturday nights often call for a bit more formality, so for our second look we used a lot of edge and elegance, keeping away from your typical dress. When paired together the racerback Katella tank and tuxedo Warner trouser from Jack by BB Dakota epitomize fashionably forward. Tuck the top into the pants (this will accentuate your waist) add a chunky heel (color or just classic black) a refined necklace and studded earrings. Again, such a fuss-free look, but one that will make even the trendiest take a second look.
Look One: Blouse: RUCH; Pant: Kasil + Taylor; Clutch: Brynn Capella (all available at Cerato Boutique)
Look Two: Top: Jack by BB Dakota; Pant: Jack by BB Dakota; Necklace: jules. (all available at Cerato Boutique)
